NEW BRUNSWICK – Puma Exploration of Rimouski, QC, has discovered a new hear surface volcanogenic massive sulphide system at its Turgeon copper-zinc project 26 km from Bathurst. The new Dragon zone is located only 200 metres southwest of the main Powerline and Zinc Zone deposits.
The company made the Dragon zone find after drilling 15 holes to test IP, EM and magnetic anomalies within 500 metres of the main deposits. Hole FT13-13 cut 4.0 metres of massive sulphide grading 1.01% Cu and 0.78% Zn. The new zone is interpreted to be the edge of an pervasive VMS system that occurs in the same volcanic unit that shows a significant zinc mineralization halo over a longer than 100 meter intersection in drill hole FT13-12 with 0.16% Zn over 161 meters and drill hole FT13-15 with 0.11% Zn over 114.9 meters.
A drill hole location map showing the various mineralized zones and the entire results of the program are available at PumaExploration.com.
