Sunset Cove Mining (TSXV:SSM) announced the discovery of five previously unknown historic adits into the Carolay Vein, which provide an additional 450 meters of strike length to the main Carolay Vein.
As quoted in the press release:
The Company is awaiting results for over 350 samples collected from the newly identified adits, which should be announced shortly. Sunset Cove has received preliminary assay results for channel samples collected from the adit NV3062, which has yielded up to 153.7 grams per tonne (g/t) silver (Ag) over 0.27 meters and 178.3 g/t Ag over 0.19 meters from two separate channel samples..
Sunset Cove President Lorne Woods said:
The discovery of an additional 450 meters of surface strike length for the Carolay Vein to the northwest of the main adit is extremely encouraging and is another strong indicator of the size, persistence and quality of the Carolay vein system. This type of exploration development is typical of small scale historic Peruvian mining. Each of these adits would more than likely have been constructed to obtain a small bulk sample from the main Carolay Vein and has provided us with access for further sampling.
