About Pilar Gold & Silver Project
The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite and rhyolite rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the north-west part of the property from historic surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4 Trench. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization.
Significant historical results:
- 17,700m of Historic Core & RC drilling. Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):
- 0.8 g/t Au over 61 m
- 53.5g/t Au & 53 g/t Ag over 16.5 m
- 9.6 g/t Au over 13 m
- 10.2 g/t Au & 46 g/t Ag over 9 m
- 2,650m of surface and trench channel sampling. Highlights include:
- 55 g/t Au over 3 m
- 28.6 g/t Au over 6 m
- 3.4 g/t Au over 50 m
- Soil and Rock sampling results from undrilled areas indicate mineralization extends towards the southeast from the Main Zone, North Hill Zone, and 4-Trench Zone.
