TORONTO, Feb. 20, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: SSM) (BVL:SSM) Sunset Cove
is pleased to announce that it has discovered a new artisanal adit
located near the San Sebastian River at the base of the Carolay Silver
"The discovery of this new adit with apparent polymetallic
mineralization during our exploration is very encouraging, " said Lorne
Woods, President and CEO of Sunset Cove. "Its discovery means that the
Carolay Vein system has been traced over several kilometers in length
and now over several hundred meters of vertical extent and is proving
to be an extensive mineralized system."
The entrance to the adit is found at 2028 meters above sea level and
measures 1.40 meters wide by 1.60 meters high and is 4.50 meters deep.
The adit in the mine entrance has a strike of 57°North and a dip of
55°Southeast and seems to follow a mineralized tensional structure that
is in the metasediment in the gneiss. This tensional structure features
strong silification with veinlets of quartz, galena and stibinite and
visible sulfur dissemination and stockworks of iron-oxide and
The gneissic country rock features strong silification along with
sericite alteration. Sulfides are present in fractures and faults.
It is possible that the San Sebastian River may be hosted in a larger
fault zone and that tensional structures associated with the fault zone
cross the gneiss and schist and are mineralized. Theses mineralized
tension structures may represent excellent opportunities for the
discovery of polymetallic mineralization of the Carolay system over
The Target warrants further exploration and perhaps with more work wider
mineralized structures maybe discovered. The San Sebastian River
discovery also demonstrates that polymetallic mineralization is not
only present in the metavolcanic rocks but may also be present in the
