Meridian Mining Drills 66.1m @ 1.1% CuEq from 86.9m at Cabaçal

25.05.2021 | 13:30 Uhr | CNW
Extensive Shallow Copper-Gold mineralisation now confirmed; remains open.

LONDON, May 25, 2021 - Meridian Mining UK S (TSXV: MNO) (Frankfurt: 2MM) ("Meridian" or the "Company") is pleased to report on the next batch of assays returned from its ongoing 10,000m resource delineation program at its Cabaçal Copper-Gold camp scale VMS project ("Cabaçal") in Mato Grosso, Brazil. Holes CD-005 through to CD-009 are reported today (Figure 1) and have returned significant intervals and grades of Copper ("Cu"), Gold ("Au") and Silver ("Ag") mineralisation (Table 1), across and outside of the limits of the historical Cabaçal Mine. The Cabaçal mine was previously operated by BP Minerals/ Rio Tinto, using a high Au only 3.0g/t cut-off grade. The recurring presence of high-grade Au intercepts within the broad Cu-Au zones, confirm that the Cabaçal mine's high-grade Au veins were mined to the limits of the resource data and not to the limit of the Cu-Au mineralisation; which remains open.

Drilling highlights today's drill results

  • CD-005 returned 30.7m @ 1.3% CuEq1 from 38.5m (0.9% Cu, 0.6/t Au, 4.9g/t Ag & 0.1% Zn);
  • CD-006 returned 17.7m @ 2.4% CuEq from 113.0m (1.3% Cu, 1.5/t Au, 6.1g/t Ag & 0.3% Zn);
    Including a higher grade zone of:
    • 11.5m @ 3.4% CuEq from 118.5m (1.9% Cu, 2.2g/t Au, 8.9g/t Ag & 0.3% Zn);
  • CD-007 returned 35.1m @ 0.6% CuEq from 30.3m (0.5% Cu, 0.2g/t Au & 2.2g/t Ag);
    Including a higher grade zone of:
    • 9.5m @ 1.6% CuEq from 55.8m (1.3% Cu, 0.4g/t Au, 6.8g/t Ag, & 0.1% Zn);
  • CD-008 returned 35.0m @ 0.5% CuEq from 30.0m (0.3% Cu, 0.2g/t Au, 1.0g/t Ag, & 0.2% Zn);
    Including a higher grade zone of:
    • 12.2m @ 1.2% CuEq from 44.8m (0.8% Cu, 0.4g/t Au, 2.5g/t Ag & 0.4% Zn)
  • CD-009 returned 66.1m @ 1.1% CuEq from 86.9m (0.6% Cu, 0.8g/t Au, 1.8g/t Ag);
    Including higher grade zones of:
    • 2.7m @ 10.0% CuEq from 86.9m (1.5% Cu, 14.0g/t Au, 7.0g/t Ag & 0.1% Zn); and
    • 12.8m @ 2.1% CuEq from 139.7m (1.7% Cu, 0.5g/t Au, 5.2g/t Ag & 0.1% Zn).

1 Note: True widths are approximately 90% of downhole lengths and assay figures and intervals rounded to 1 decimal place. Copper Equivalents ("CuEq") have been calculated using the formula CuEq = ((Cu%*Cu price 1% per tonne) + (Au ppm*Au price per g/t) + (Ag ppm*Ag price per g/t) + (Zn%*Zn price 1% per tonne)) / (Cu price 1 % per tonne). Commodity Prices: Copper ("Cu") and Zinc ("Zn") prices from LME Official Settlement Price dated April 23, 2021 USD per Tonne: Cu = USD 9,545.50 and Zn = USD 2,802.50. Gold ("Au") & Silver ("Ag") prices from LBMA Precious Metal Prices USD per Troy ounce: Au = USD 1781.80 (PM) and Ag = USD 26.125 (Daily). The CuEq values are for exploration purposes only and include no assumptions for metallurgical recovery.

"Today's drill results continue to deliver strong intervals of Copper and Gold, starting at shallow depths, from our Cabaçal project. Cabaçal's drill results to date, featuring robust grades, wide intervals and excellent geometry combined with the known metallurgy of the Cabaçal mine, highlights the Company's potential to emerge as the next mid-tier copper-gold resource developer." commented Dr Adrian McArthur, CEO and President. "Cabaçal was previously selectively mined within a series of gently dipping Copper-Gold sulphide layers using a high Gold-only cut-off grade of 3.0g/t within a much broader mineralised envelope. The current drilling has continued to intersect not only extensive copper mineralization but also high-grade Gold (2.7m @ 14g/t Au), showing that high-grade trends remain open extending out from the limits of historical development. Also, it was noteworthy that the last 12.8m of CD-009 graded over 2.0% CuEq before being terminated by a mining void2. As we continue to focus the first 8,000m of our inaugural 10,000m drill and trenching program on the Cabaçal mine, we still have 2,000m budgeted to confirm the already defined near-mine and regional targets of our VMS camp. We expect that additional results will continue through the summer and autumn."

Meridian's drill results, mapping and Bore Hole Electro-Magnetic ("BHEM") surveys completed to date have confirmed that significant thicknesses of Cu-Au mineralisation extend approximately 400m North-East South-West while the historical selective underground workings have a ~650m North-West South-East extent; the mineralisation is considered open. Cumulative Cu sulphide layers (+Au-Ag) intercepted have also exceed 60m in thickness. The widths, mineral assemblages and grades are generally in line with the historical results. The near-mine soil and drill programs by BP Minerals in the 1980's, the 2007 airborne EM survey's results and the Company's recent re-interpretation have outlined the Cabaçal mine's immediate area of interest is 3.7km in strike length.2 Other regional targets within the Cabaçal VMS camp have anomalies of similar extent.

Notes

Holes have been drilled HQ through the saprolite and upper bedrock and reduced to NQ - mineralized intervals represent half NQ drill core. Samples have been analysed at the accredited SGS laboratory in Belo Horizonte. Gold analyses have been conducted by FAA505 (fire assay of a 50g charge), and base metal analysis by methods ICP40B and ICP40B_S (four acid digest with ICP-OES finish). Samples are held in the company's secure facilities until dispatch and delivered by staff and commercial couriers to the laboratory. Pulps are retained for umpire testwork, and ultimately returned to the Company for storage. The Company submits a range of quality controls samples, including blanks and gold and polymetallic standards supplied by ITAK, supplementing laboratory quality control procedures. True widths are interpreted to be ~90% of intersection widths.

Electromagnetic surveys over Cabaçal have been conducted by Geomag S/A Prospecções Geofísicas, a company of the Wellfield Services Group, using a TEM57-MK2 Transmitter and PROTEM receiver for surface surveys and BH43-3 borehole three-dimensional time domain (TDEM) probe for subsurface work. Quality control is performed daily by the geophysical representative of the Wellfield Group, before and data sent to the Company's independent consultant, Core Geophysics. Modelling of conductivity responses is undertaken using industry-standard Maxwell software. Geophysical targets are preliminary in nature and not conclusive evidence of the likelihood of a mineral deposit.
