2.044% Copper 3.21grams/tonne Gold 51grams/tonne SilverChip Sample in Trench on BC Porphyry Copper
April 24, 2008
Sego Resources reports that the first re-assays and fire assays from the 3200 metre excavator trenching program on its Miner Mountain Project have been received. The trenching and reclamation is being managed by the Upper Similkameen Indian Band and its highly qualified personnel. Mapping and sampling is being conducted by Sean Daly, P.Geo. and Curt Kauss and consulting is being provided by Vic Preto, Ph.D., P.Eng. The trenching to date, currently in what has been known as the Granby Zone, has reached well mineralized bedrock, most of which was not reached by historical bulldozer trenching. The company has new results for the first 14 trenches of a total of 49 trenches to date. In some locations the overburden was too deep for trenching to reach bedrock. . A number of the samples ran >10,000 ppm copper and > 2 ppm gold which is the upper limit of accuracy for ICP methods. For this reason Sego Resources Inc. re-assayed for total copper, and gold /silver highs by fire assay with an ICP finish. These results are in the table. Sample designation: C=1 metre rock chip sample, R=Rock grab sample taken from spoil where trench was too deep and unstable to safely enter for chip sampling.
