Highlights from Recent Artha Work
Artha completed an initial reconnaissance level mapping (at 1:10 000 scale) and sampling program in November/December 2011 which was intended to familiarize our technical team with the property and ground truth historical results. The focus of the work was the 3.5km zone through the central part of the property near the historic Julio Verne mine. The outcome of this work has been a detailed structural interpretation of the property providing a better understanding of its context in the regional geological framework (Map 1) as well as a clearer picture of the mineralisation.
Artha has identified three initial target zones based on recent mapping and sampling and historical work. Map 2 depicts these three zones in the context of gold anomalism from recent and historical surface sampling. From this work Zones 2 and 3 are considered high priority.
- Zone 2: located in the central part of the property; large Au anomaly (>0.25ppm Au) 750x600m in size; includes the Julio Verne Mine (Cu-Bi-Au
