Sunset Cove Releases More Assay Results From The Carolay Silver Property

MONTREAL, April 19 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: SSM) Mr. Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove reports that continuing exploration on the Carolay Silver Project has further expanded one of the principal surface targets, Anomaly 2, and located a new mineralized shear zone.

A series of 26 rock chip samples were taken recently from a road cut outcrop in Anomaly 2 showing locally significant Ag-Pb-Zn sulphide mineralization disseminated along fine fractures in the host meta-sediments.

This new sample series was centered on an intensely fractured and mineralized zone that yielded 3.25m @ 43.5 g/t Ag as reported on February 2, 2011 with a high value of 91.0 g/t Ag from three channel chip samples.

Of the 14 new samples taken across this mineralized zone, four samples yielded values of >30 g/t Ag and averaged 21.7 g/t Ag over a distance of 21 meters with high values of 74 g/t Ag, 1.47%Pb and 1.67% Zn as listed in Table 1.

The sulphide mineralization found in this road cut coincides with a large IP chargeability and resistivity anomaly measuring 800m x 600m identified by a geophysical survey completed in October 2010.

A tabular shear zone with apparent widths ranging between 1 - 2 meters was found further east of Anomaly 2 showing a mixed zone of copper sulphide and oxide minerals.  The rock chip samples were taken as 0.4 x 0.4 m panel chip samples; two of these returned values > 1.0% Cu with a high of 2.2% Cu as shown in Table 2 below.

Lorne Woods is happy to state, "We are continuing an active surface exploration program on the property and will soon restart our drilling program to drill the Carolay Vein and reoriented based on the recent geochemical results and identification of new targets."
