Sunset Cove Reports Results of Samples From a New Breccia Found on The Carolay Property

MONTREAL, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSX-V:SSM): Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove Mining reports the following results from surface samples taken on its silver- polymetallic Carolay Property in the province of La Libertad in Peru.

"The results that are coming from each of our exploration activities are providing key information regarding the potential of the Carolay property." said Woods. "Each piece is helping us to fill in the picture of what we have."

Carolay Breccia

The company's technical team took three rock chip samples from a steeply dipping brecciated sulphide vein located 625 meters east of and sub-parallel to the Carolay Vein that had been exposed during roadway maintenance. 

Samples averaged more than 43 g/t Ag over a 3.25 meter wide section of the breccia. More sampling needs to be undertaken to establish the full width of the breccia zone.

A channel chip sample of 0.25 m width across the breccia zone yielded 91 g/t Ag, >1% Pb and >1% Zn; a second channel chip sample of 1.5 meters length taken from the hanging wall immediately adjacent to, but not including the breccia, ran 33 g/t Ag, 0.49% Pb and >1.0% Zn. 

A third channel chip sample of 1.5 meters length was taken in a similar manner from the foot wall and ran 6.4 g/t Ag, 0.15% Pb and 0.82% Zn.         

In addition, Sunset submitted one sample from the breccia for metallurgic testing to the laboratory of the National University of Engineering (Universidad National de Ingeniería) "UNI" the results of this test were taken to K.W. QUIMICA GERMANA S.A.C. for verification. Both laboratories are based in Lima, Peru.

The results from the rougher concentrate for silver showed 74.5% recovery with a grade of 10.6 oz/t Ag; results for lead gave 93.0% recovery with a grade of 35.2% Pb.  The ore was termed docile with low consumption of chemical reagents and a low presence of contaminants (As, Sb).    

Lorne Woods, president of Sunset Cove would also like to welcome Sr. Arnaldo Leon to the Board of the company. Sr. Leon has a long career as a mining consultant and engineer who has worked with the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank.

In addition he is the founder of Arnaldo Leon & Associates, a mining consultancy to both Peruvian and International mining companies.
