Mining Stock News - Altan Rio (TSXV: AMO) Announces Exploration Results


Perth, Australia - April 12, 2023 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) Altan Rio Minerals Limited (TSXV: AMO) ("Altan Rio Minerals" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the findings of its rock chip sampling program carried out on its Southern Cross tenements.

The program focused along strike of a known gold deposit, on an area of interest around the Parisian workings. The Parisian workings are located approximately 900 metres north of the historical Pilot mine.

Parisian Target: First Target tested at SX North Project

Five surface rock chip samples were collected which returned the following mineralised gold results. Sample locations are shown on the above photograph which was taken by a drone looking south over the Parisian workings.

  • JC102 - 2.66 g/t Au
  • SX028 - 2.14 g/t Au
  • JC101 - 1.49 g/t Au
  • SX027 - 0.70 g/t Au

A second area of interest has been identified by prospecting further north along the mineralisation trend approximately 10 kilometres north of the historical Corinthia Gold Mine. This recent identification of outcropping quartz veining has led to the generation of a new exploration target for the Company. Its location is shown on the map below (Image 2).

Pilot Open Pit900 meters from the Parisian TargetThis system is situated in a region that has remained unexplored for more than two decades.

Initial prospecting of the area has revealed a smokey, brecciated quartz-hematite-ironstone vein that boasts disseminated and blebby vugs, possibly indicative of the dissolution of sulphides, as shown in Image 1.

  • SX035 - 33.8 ppb Au
  • SX036 - 04.8 ppb Au

The seven samples reported on were collected and analysed using standard techniques for the Australia gold exploration industry.

Commenting on the exploration update, Altan Rio Minerals Chairman and Interim CEO, Graeme Sloan said:

"Our Southern Cross tenements have shown promising geological characteristics for gold, exploration. These results returning minable grade from the Parisian Target only emphasis the opportunity that SX North Project represents. Given that only two samples were taken from the northern target and both returning gold results is very encouraging. I look forward to the results from the next round field work."
