- Program Follows Up High Grade Silver Samples of Up To 448 g/t at the MAG Target -
VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 29, 2020 /CNW/ - International Consolidated Uranium Inc. ("CUR" or the "Company") (TSXV: CUR) announces that it has completed work programs at the Mt. Roe Gold Project located south of Karratha in Western Australia. The program was designed to follow up on some key targets on the Prinsep and Sholl tenements.
Philip Williams, CEO commented "Our crew has just left the field and all samples have been sent out for analysis. The program covered several prospect areas but we are particularly interested in the follow-up work at the MAG target, on the Sholl tenement, where last year prospecting samples returned high grade silver results of 194 g/t and 458 g/t Ag including elevated copper, zinc and antimony values. The area is clearly prospective for silver as at the nearby Elizabeth Hill Silver Project, according to Alien Metals, historic silver production totaled approximately 16,800 tonnes grading 2,195 g/t Ag (70.24 oz/t Ag) generating 1,170,000 ounces, including some very large specimens of native silver. Although our focus is on growing and developing our uranium portfolio the potential discovery of high-grade silver at Mt Roe should only serve to help realize value for this non-core asset going forward."
The recently completed program included work on a structure hosting significantly anomalous silver values, expanding two soil grids on inferred property scale structural corridors and further definition of a drainage basin using silt sampling. The MAG silver target area (Figure 1) is currently a poorly defined shear zone corridor that had initial prospecting samples return strong assay values. Follow up work has consisted of confirmatory rock samples and a soil grid across and along the structural corridor of interest designed to further establish and expand the footprint of this potential prospect.
Additional soil grid sampling was also undertaken on the Hawk target area (NR July 17, 2019) to further expand the coincident gold-in-soil anomaly along the geophysical magnetic break inferred to be a property wide structural corridor. Soil grids were also established on the Prinsep tenements to better define the gold signature of the historical Lulu prospect and evaluate an interpreted (magnetics and geology) fault truncated fold closure associated with an iron formation unit. A total of 148 samples (5 silts, 139 soils, 4 rocks) were collected during this program and have been submitted for gold and multi-elemental analysis; results are expected in six to eight weeks depending on laboratory processing availability.
CUR also announces that it has retained Commodity-TV & Rohstoff-TV a subsidiary of Swiss Resource Capital AG to provide investor relations and TV-communication services in Europe. Commodity-TV & Rohstoff-TV are leading IPTV channels and are owned by Swiss Resource Capital and led by Jochen Staiger, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Editor. Swiss Resource Capital and the IPTV channels are a well-known and respected service within the European investment community and will increase exposure and awareness of the Company, particularly toward German-speaking investors but also worldwide.
The engagement is for an initial 12-month term, commencing November 1, 2020, for consideration in the amount of 25,000 Euros. Commodity-TV & Rohstoff-TV will assist the company's efforts to grow investor awareness and exposure to retail and institutional investors, including by providing news dissemination and marketing services in German. The engagement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. Swiss Resource Capital AG currently holds 100,000 warrants entitling the holder to acquire one common share at $0.50 cents until October 1, 2023.
Mr. Williams commented "We welcome the support of Jochen and his team in Europe. Our focus on consolidating and developing uranium projects around the globe makes CUR a good match for German investors."
