VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sanatana Resources Inc. (“Sanatana” or the “Company”) provides this exploration update.
SOLOMON ISLANDS UPDATE:
Sanatana is pleased to announce that the acquisition of the Tirua Project in the Solomon Islands has been conditionally accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Over the summer months, Sanatana field crews have collected 504 soil samples. The samples are in the process of being transported to Vancouver and results will be reported once received by the Company.
The purpose of the sampling program was in part to sample a magnetic anomaly interpreted to be a possible porphry copper centre located 7 kms south-west of the focus of previous exploration and in part to infill previously defined arsenic and gold soil anomalies with the intent of generating drill targets.
Buddy Doyle, President, states: “I was fortunate to be able to visit the southern magnetic anomaly on my most recent project visit. This underexplored area, approximately 7 kms south of the bulk of the previous work, has been opened up by forestry and is therefore more accessible than it has been in the past. This part of the Tirua caldera is characterized by large areas of argillic and phyllic alteration outcropping in the streams which is consistent with our premise that this is a lithocap profile over a porphyry centre. Several lines of soil samples were taken from this area and the results may add further evidence that this is a target of interest.”
EMPRESS PROPERTY UPDATE:
Sanatana has commenced a 400m drill program at the Empress property located on the Northern shore of Lake Superior, 18 km east of Terrace Bay via Highway 17, within the Schreiber-Hemlo greenstone belt, Ontario.
The drill program is planned to test the sub surface gold mineralization potential down dip of a previously collected channel sample that returned results of 1.3 g/t Au over 16.2m (including 2.8m @ 5.3 g/t Au) that coincides with an IP anomaly. The gold mineralization is hosted by a silicified, sericitic and pyritic schist within the broader shear zone of the Empress Structure.
The Empress property is under option from Alto Ventures Ltd. (please see Sanatana’s news release dated June 20, 2019 for complete details)
