Fredonia Mining Commences Maiden Mineral Resource Estimation on its El Dorado Monserrat Gold and Silver Project, Argentina

21.05.2024 | 15:00 Uhr | GlobeNewswire
  • The Company is preparing an initial mineral resource estimate at the El Dorado Monserrat ("EDM") project, targeted for release in Q3 of this year.

  • The mineral resource estimate will be based on three drilling campaigns carried out over the past three years, representing a total of 10,982.7 meters of diamond drilling, plus historical drillings of the project.

TORONTO, May 21, 2024 -- Fredonia Mining Inc. ("Fredonia" or the "Company") (TSXV:FRED) announces that it has commissioned the preparation of an initial mineral resource estimate at the EDM project, targeted for Q3, 2024. The work is being undertaken by the independent geologist Mario Alfaro and the independent engineer Marco Alfaro.

The wholly-owned EDM gold and silver project comprises 5,793ha located in the prolific Deseado Massif in Patagonia, Argentina. The EDM project has two large mineralized sectors - the northern and southern sectors - that have been only partly explored to date (Figure 1).

The northern "Monserrat" sector comprises an area 3.5 km long by 3.2 km wide, made up of mineralized corridors hosted in andesitic lavas that form country rock, and contains more than 20 kilometers of epithermal veins, not all of which have been explored or drilled (Figure 2). This sector contains a series of mineralized target areas, including Main Veins, Bajo Pedernal, Monserrat West, Abanico, Gladys, and Monserrat East, among others. Some significant drill results include: 6.0 m @ 14.43 g/t Au Eq. at Main Veins; 2.4 m @ 18.05 g/t Au Eq. at Monserrat West; 4.0 m @ 2.42 g/t Au Eq. at Bajo Pedernal (see Fredonia news release, dated February 13th, 2023).

The southern "Mineralized Corridor" sector comprises an area 6.0 km long by 1.0 km wide, and including the advanced Herradura Hill target area; Beethoven horst-epithermal veins (only scout drilling done so far); and Pamela target area (not yet drilled).

The Herradura Hill target area consists of a maar-volcano-diatreme surrounded by an extensive brecciated domes and dykes host system, the dimensions of which are yet undefined - being geologically open in all directions (Figure 3). The latest work has shown a new metallogenic interpretation at the Herradura Hill target area, defined as flow domes and an epithermal veins complex with disseminated Au-Ag mineralization with dimensions open in all directions. Drill holes confirm very broad stockworks, wide hydrothermal breccias and veins hosted in a phreatomagmatic breccias, felsic domes and dykes that intrude the andesite flows that form the country rock. Some significant drill intercepts include 8.00 m @ 6.00 g/t Au Eq., including 3.00 m @ 12.65 g/t Au Eq. (Figure 4) at the Herradura Hill target (see Fredonia news release, dated January 31, 2023).

See notes to Figures 2 and 3 below for information with respect to the assumptions used to calculate Au Eq.

All of these target areas remain open along strike and dip.

Following the release of its maiden mineral resource estimate, future drilling at the EDM project would contemplate three objectives: shallow drilling designed to expand mineralized zones; deep drilling to test high grade feeders; and additional drilling to test new target areas at the project.

Estanislao Auriemma, CEO of Fredonia Mining expressed: "After extensive drilling campaigns over only a portion of the EDM project over the past three years, we are very pleased with the scope and size of the mineralized target areas so far discovered, and very much look forward to the project's maiden resource estimate, which we believe will confirm the excellent potential of our flagship project."

(*) Reported interval lengths are down-hole widths and not true widths.
(**) Gold equivalent ("Au Eq.") is calculated using metal prices of US$ 1,800/oz for Au and US$ 24/oz for Ag. The equation used is: Au Eq g/t = Au g/t + (Ag g/t ÷ 75).
Au Eq assumes Au recovery of 90%. The limited metallurgical studies by Fredonia (selective Bottle rolls from Main Veins material) have indicated high (>90%) recovery of gold in oxide material. The Cerro Vanguardia mine to the east of EDM with similar mineralization reports recoveries in the high 90% for Au.
