Trevali Mining (TSX: TV; US-OTC: TREVF) has found a new mineralized body outside of the current 2009 resource at its Stratmat zinc-lead-silver-copper-gold project in New Brunswick.
The latest discovery, called S-5 lens, is the second one the Vancouver-based producer has made in recent months, following the New zone in September.
The S-5 lens is located on the project’s Central zone between the S1 and Main zones at a depth of 300 metres. Trevali identified the target by compiling historic data, 3-D geological modelling and downhole electromagnetics.
Of note, discovery hole 785 was the first hole drilled in this area of the project since 1989. To Trevali’s surprise, the hole returned 40 metres of massive sulphide lenses, including high grade intervals such as 6.2 metres of 7.72% Zn, 3.29% Pb and 0.5% Cu per tonne.
Based on limited drilling to date, the S-5 lens extends over 50 metres of strike and 150 metres of dip, and averages 25 metres in thickness.
