VANCOUVER, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - Gitennes Exploration Inc. (TSX-GIT) is
pleased to report on exploration progress at its 100%-owned TotoRoko Project
located in Peru. TotoRoko is a bulk copper-silver-gold project, where three
large areas of oxide copper (Cerro TotoRoko, Lomas Orjo and NW) have been
discovered along a 4,500 metre long panel of highly faulted and altered
Jurassic volcanic rocks. A cross-cutting zone of gold-silver mineralization,
Cantana, occurs between Cerro TotoRoko and Lomas Orjo.
Induced Polarization (IP) and magnetometer surveys have been completed
over Cerro TotoRoko, Cantana and Lomas Orjo. Several very large, distinct
chargeability anomalies were detected, including a 1,300-metre anomaly that is
coincident with Cerro TotoRoko. The anomaly extends off-grid to the northwest
and to depth to the southeast, beneath Lomas Orjo. A second strong anomaly of
unknown origin occurs to the north of the primary target area. The strongest
portions of this latter anomaly are "down-dip" from the Cantana vein. A third
strong anomaly occurs southwest of the Cerro TotoRoko. Drilling is planned for
all three anomalies.
Geological mapping and sampling continue to detail and expand the primary
target area. Small, isolated outcrops that may represent a new zone that is
parallel to the Cerro TotoRoko, with similar characteristics, has been found
120 metres southwest of the original TotoRoko zone in an area of cover.
Chip-channel results from these small outcrops include:
CC No. 28964: 4 metres grading 0.253 g/t gold, 22 g/t silver and 0.7%
CC No. 28965: 4 metres grading 0.480 g/t gold, 9.7 g/t silver and 0.6%
CC No. 28966: 6 metres grading 0.113 g/t gold, 3.7 g/t silver and 0.2%
As a result of the continued encouragement from both the geophysical
surveys and basic "boot 'n hammer" prospecting, exploration work is continuing
on the entire property. The NW area, northwest of Lomas Orjo will be mapped
and sampled in more detail in the following weeks, and further work is
required to prioritize the IP anomalies. Road access into the region has
improved considerably as a result of the local government's infrastructure
initiatives, and most of the TotoRoko Project may now be accessed by truck.
All agreements covering camp and local access have been signed with the local
communities. Drilling is planned when a suitable rig becomes available,
probably in late October.
Work at TotoRoko is supervised by A. Fernandez-Baca (P.Geo). Analytical
services are provided by ALS Chemex in Lima, Peru. The technical information
