Toronto, Ontario - October 27, 2020 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Palamina Corp. (TSXV: PA) has completed additional sampling in the Veta NE and Veta Zones at the Coasa Gold Project. Channel sampling in the newly discovered Veta NE Zone returned values up to 90.3 g/t Au over 1.30 m. The Veta NE Zone is located 500 m NE of the Veta Zone and only two rounds of channel sampling have been carried out to date. Continued sampling in the Veta Zone returned values up to 17.6 g/t Au over 1.0 m, increased the known width of zone #7 and returned positive infill results in both zone #7 and #8.
"Palamina's second channel sampling campaign in the newly discovered Veta NE Zone has returned high grade gold values similar to those obtained in the Veta and Cayos Zones to the SW." said President Andrew Thomson "Palamina has completed construction of its field camp at Coasa while awaiting final permission from the Peruvian government to proceed with a drill program in the Veta Zone."
During the second exploration campaign of 2020, 55 samples were collected in the Veta NE Zone where 85% of samples were > 0.1 g/t Au and 13% > 1 g/t Au. A total of 28 samples were collected in the Veta Zone where 89% of samples were > 0.1 g/t Au and 36% > 1 g/t Au. Sample values reporting greater than 1.0 g/t Au are summarized as follows:
Palamina has obtained a DIA (environmental impact study) to drill in the Veta Zone which permits up to 40 drill pads. Palamina has planned 12 drill pads in the Veta Zone and may apply to modify its DIA to allocate the balance of 28 drill pads to the Veta NE and Cayos Zones. Palamina has first mover advantage on gold projects in the Puno Orogenic Gold Belt and remains focused on conducting an initial drill discovery program in the Veta Zone at the Coasa Gold Project.
Channel samples are taken from exposed outcrops and cut to capture the best available angle to the orientation of the sampled structure. Samples collected in the field are transported by Palamina personnel to the Certimin S.A laboratory in Juliaca, Peru. Samples are processed by Certimin S.A in Juliaca and prepared sample splits are transported for assay to the CERTIMIN SA Laboratory in Lima, Peru. Samples are assayed for gold using a 50-gram fire assay charge with an AA finish. Samples are also analysed using a multi-element ICP-OES package. Prior to delivery of field exploration samples to the laboratory, Palamina staff insert coarse blank samples, field duplicates and certified gold analytical standards into the sample stream to provide controls over the quality of sampling and analytical procedures. No standards are inserted for the multi-element suite. All samples are returned to the Company and stored at a secure facility in Juliaca.
