MONTREAL, Dec. 16 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSX-V: SSM): Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove Mining is proud to announce that
a 6000-meter diamond drill program is about to begin on its Silver
Polymetallic Carolay Property in the province of La Libertad in Peru.
Explo Drilling of Arequipa, Peru has already been mobilized to the
property near Ushnobal in North Eastern Peru. They should arrive and be
in place to drill by December the 17th, 2010.
This drilling program is based on the results and recommendations
obtained from the I.P. survey performed by VDG Del Perù SAC during the
summer of 2010 on the Carolay property. "This is the first time anyone
has drilled the Carolay property," said Lorne Woods, President and CEO
of Sunset Cove Mining, "we look forward to the results which we think
will validate our rationale of exploring here."
The I.P. survey identified two anomalies, I.P. #1 and I.P. #2, that have
been selected as drilling targets by Sunset. The proposed drilling
program is aimed at exploring the mineral potential of both
anomalies. The first drilling site has been selected for its close
proximity to the two anomalies and will allow us to drill into the two
anomalies with minimal disruption and down time.
The first anomaly (IP #1) appears to be an extension of the Carolay
vein, which is partially exposed along a strike length of 150 meters by
a drift and two sublevels. The vein corresponds to a chargeability
anomaly that extends over 1 Km in length, over the property, and
remains open towards the northwest.
The chargeability anomaly has an average width of 200 meters and
indicates that disseminated sulfides may be found in both the foot and
hanging walls and that higher sulfide concentrations are found in the
center of the anomaly.
The second chargeability anomaly (IP #2) is located to the southeast of
the Carolay vein; it has been described as having the strongest
chargeability anomaly of the current survey. It extends over 600 meters
in width and remains open at the southeast end.
The amplitude of the chargeability response, leads Sunset Cove to
believe that the sulfide content associated to this anomaly could be
higher than that of the Carolay Vein. Sunset Cove's NI 43-101 Technical
Report, which can be found on SEDAR, has confirmed results from the
Carolay Vein obtained by previous campaigns that indicates sliver
values varying from 35 to 844 g/t, zinc values from 0.211% to 3.68%,
lead values from 0.0349% to 3.10% and copper values from 0.0147% to
"Our technical team believes that by drilling we will possibly generate
higher mineral values than our sampling has produced to date, said
The evidence to date tells Sunset that both anomalies (IP-1 & IP-2) are
connected. The company hopes to be able to further define the
connection from this initial diamond drill program.
