ORIGINAL: Stuve Gold Corp. Announces Results of Initial Diamond Drilling at Teresa/Coba SW Property and Engages Market Maker

2021-09-28 11:08 ET - News Release

(via TheNewswire)

Calgary, Alberta – TheNewswire - September 28, 2021 - Stuve Gold Corp. (TSXV:STUV) (“Stuve Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the results of its previously announced seven (7) hole, 975m reconnaissance diamond drill program at its Teresa/Coba SW copper/gold/silver/cobalt property in Chile (see news release dated August 17, 2021 ).


The high-grade drill hole intercepts are as follows:

 |Hole      |From  |To   |Width|Cu% |Au g/t|Ag g/t|Co% |
 |COBA-21-01|92.6  |98.71|6.11 |2.5 |4.45  |28.9  |0.56|
 |including |93.25 |97.72|4.47 |2.9 |5.37  |34.4  |0.61|
 |COBA-21-04|100.3 |115.0|14.7 |1.96|2.46  |5.6   |0.10|
 |including |106.38|113.7|7.32 |3.42|4.98  |9.7   |0.12|
 |COBA-21-07|174.49|179.2|4.71 |1.4 |5.27  |2.4   |0.35|
 |including |174.9 |178.5|3.6  |1.72|6.66  |2.7   |0.45|

Overview of Drilling Campaign Objectives and Results

The initial drilling program at Teresa consisted of seven diamond drill holes targeting high grade surface and underground chip samples obtained in the area of the historical workings and Induced Polarization (IP) chargeability anomalies.

The objectives of this program were to better understand previously worked sections of the Teresa  vein system as well as test extensions of the system to the SW of the historical underground workings in both the oxide and sulfide zones. (Stuve Gold’s prior surface and underground sampling along this trend returned grades of up to 13.7% copper, 16.3 g/t gold, 25.9 g/t silver and 0.95% cobalt (see news release dated November 16, 2020 ).  These results are similar to the historic high-grade production mined nearby at the Carrizal Alto mines).

The seven diamond drill holes were drilled along trend of both anomalies visible at surface and matching the inclination of the two mine shafts from NW to SW direction.  The drill holes were collared in the NW hanging wall of the Teresa vein system and  inclined at 45 to 80 degrees to the SE.

Of the seven holes drilled during this initial program, two shallow holes drilled in the area of the South shaft intersected unrecorded old workings whereas the remaining five holes cut significant mineralization while three as noted in the table above (i.e. COBA-21-01, COBA -21-04 and COBA-21-07) intersected significant widths of high-grade mineralization.

“The results from the five holes intersecting mineralization confirm the extension of significant copper, gold, silver and cobalt mineralization and a productive zone a further 240m southwest and to a total depth of 175m (60m below the existing underground workings of the South (secondary) shaft)” said VP, Exploration, Terry Walker.  “Based on these results we intend to move Teresa towards a more clearly defined production opportunity through tightening of our drill density in the Teresa vein structure and prospective economic modelling."

“These drill results reaffirm our belief of the nature, size and structure of the mineralized zone at Teresa when combined with our data from the existing underground workings and surface samples,” stated Gordon Aldcorn, President. “We are considering the initiation of an engineering study exploring the possibility of small-scale mining into the mineralized zone utilizing both the existing underground workings and/or an additional audit access point in addition to further drilling."

Stuve Gold´s 1,260 ha Coba SW property that includes Teresa is located within the historic Carrizal Alto mining district, a significant producer of high-grade copper, gold, silver and cobalt ores estimated past production in the three to four million tonne range from similar vein systems to Teresa.  

Market-Maker Engaged

Mr. Terence Walker, M.Sc., P. Geo, qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed the contents of this news release. During the drilling program all samples were cut from the drill core using a diamond saw by experienced Stuve Gold staff under the supervision of Eric Hanson P. Geo, a qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. Each sample, consisting of one half of the relative core interval selected, was bagged and sealed on site and delivered by Stuve Gold staff to the ALS prep-lab in La Serena for processing. ALS subsequently shipped a 30g sub-sample pulp to their laboratory in Lima, Peru where they were analysed for gold by fire assay pre-concentration, AA finish and 35 other elements, including copper, silver and cobalt, by the ICP technique following Agua Regia digestion.


Stuve Gold is an emerging mining exploration company engaged in advancing mineral properties in Chile.  Stuve Gold is focused on opportunities that exhibit promising potential for gold, copper, silver, and cobalt as a result of historical mining activities on, or associated with, those properties.  Each of the properties within Stuve Gold’s current portfolio - including the ‘Coba SW’, ‘Santa Gracia’, ‘Inca’ and ‘Roma’ properties, contain those attributes.
