Sunset Cove Reports Results of Recent Drilling on its Carolay Silver Property

TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: SSM):  Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove Mining, is pleased to announce interim results from the second diamond drilling (DDH) campaign on its Carolay silver-polymetallic property located in La Libertad, Peru. 

Drill hole CA-11-07 tested the eastern extension of the Carolay Vein where sulphide mineralization is found in a road cut 600 meters east of the Carolay Vein adit.  Bratzon Salvador, Sunset Cove Mining Operations Manager said, "When looking at the core from this hole we can see that it appears to have crossed a number of different structures, especially at depth." This road cut coincides with a large IP chargeability and resistivity anomaly measuring 800 m by 600 m, identified by a geophysical survey completed in October, 2010. Due to steep terrain, drill hole CA-11-07 was collared on the same road that cuts the suphide mineralization exposure. 

Significant silver intercepts from this drill hole are given in Table 1: 

From       To   Length, m   Ag, ppm
      10.5   2.0   51.5
  including       0.5   123.5
130.5       134.5   4.0   18.8
  including       0.5   41.1

The drilling results in combination with surface samples taken along the exposed mineralized sections of the local road suggest continuity of the Carolay Vein mineralization. Of the 14 new samples taken across this mineralized zone, four samples yielded values of greater than 30 g/t Ag and averaged 21.7 g/t Ag over a distance of 21 m with high values of 74 g/t Ag, 1.47 per cent Pb and 1.67 per cent Zn. 

The aim of hole CA-11-07 and the road cut sampling was to test extensions of the Carolay Vein and associated mineralized mantos intersected in SSM's first two drill holes reported on March 17, 2011. As was reported then, the first diamond drill hole CA-10-01 intersected 58 meters of mineralized core revealing 0.019 g/t Au; 1.59 g/t Ag; 0.11% Cu; 0.053% Pb and 0.711% Zn. Including a 28.3-meter section with 1 g/t Ag. The second diamond drill hole CA-10-03 intersected 60.95 meters of mineralized core at 1.76 g/t Ag; 0.01% Cu; 0.03% Pb and 0.42% Zn. Including a 42.1-meter section with 1 g/t Ag. 

Holes CA-10-01 and CA-10-03 were spaced 36 meters apart and appear to have intersected a mineralized manto with an apparent thickness of 40 meters.

Note: All widths are drilling intersections. The true widths are unknown at this time.
