Sunset Cove Reports More Assay Results from the Lindsay Vein

TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: SSM) (BVL: SSM) Mr. Lorne Woods, president of Sunset Cove, is pleased to report additional assay results from the recently discovered Lindsay Vein (see SSM news release dated Aug 21, 2012) at the Carolay Silver Polymetallic property located in the department of La Libertad, Peru.

The exposed portion of the Lindsay vein, which measures 13 metres wide and is open to the north-west, is structurally complex, containing both banded and brecciated textures and mineralized veinlets of sphalerite, galena and iron-manganese oxides. The vein has a strike of 277° azimuth and a dip of 65° north-east.

Three channel samples have returned the following results.

  Width (m) g/t Ag % Cu %Pb %Zn g/tAu
3.20 25.20 0.020 0.020 0.030 0.01
0.87 0.80 0.003 0.002 0.011 0.64
2.85 4.63 0.010 0.004 0.070 0.11
Total 6.92 13.66 0.014 0.011 0.044 0.13

The sulfide structure returned a weighted average grade of 25.20 grams per tonne (g/t) silver (Ag), 0.02 percent (%) copper (Cu), 0.02% lead (Pb) and 0.03% zinc (Zn).

Adjacent is a second structure that consists of wallrock with a small horizontal vein that contains iron oxides; the assay results yielded low Ag and Zn values but one of the samples returned anomalous gold (Au) values with a single channel sample yielding 1.99g/t Au over 0.25-meters.

The third structure in the trench is a hydrothermal breccia.  The breccia yielded a weighted average grade for the channel samples of 4.63g/t Ag, 0.01% Cu, 0.01% Pb and 0.04% Zn over a 2.85 meters.

"These assay results along with extensive alteration and the presence of hyrothermal breccias at the Lindsay vein are very encouraging," said Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove. "The understanding we have now about the Lindsay vein is leading us to call it a structure. Also it is the first very large mineralized zone we have found on the property to date."

Field exploration is being planned around the Lindsay and Maria vein complex and will include mapping, trenching and assaying to determine the surface grade and continuity of the structures. Development work including road building and drill pad construction will begin shortly in anticipation of a drill campaign commencing in October.
