Samples from the initial program yielded mineralization as high as 144 g/t silver, 3.45% copper, 6.3% lead and 6.91% zinc. A recently completed magnetic survey defined a large magnetic high anomaly west of the mine that appears to be associated with this mineralization.
Results from twenty grab samples collected from undocumented mineralized zones on the property are listed in the table below. The samples reported are from an intermittently exposed mineralization over a 700 X 800 metre area southwest of the known Talisman mine. Mineralized zones range from about less than a metre to 10 metres in thickness and are relatively flat-lying.
Mineralization at Talisman is skarn related. Exact production records of the historic mine are not available, however, 521 tons of ore shipped during the early 1900’s are reported to have averaged 5% copper, 3 opt (102.9 g/t) silver, and 4.1% zinc. This is consistent with the results obtained by the Company west of the known mine site.
Further mapping and prospecting is planned to trace and better define the mineralized zones within and around the magnetic anomaly west of the mine. In addition, the possibility of other mineralized zones exist, either up or down-section and will be tested.
