Tarku Resources (TKU) has announced the results of a sampling campaign completed at the Solstice Mine.

The mine is located at Tarku’s Silver Strike Project in Arizona.

Highlights:

  • 552.5 g/t Ag Eq, including 482 g/t Ag and one per cent lead-zinc combined
  • 407.3 g/t Ag Eq, including 353 g/t Ag and 0.7 per cent lead-zinc combined
  • 358.2 g/t Ag Eq, including 280 g/t Ag and 1.6 per cent lead-zinc combined
  • 354.3 g/t Ag Eq, including 187 g/t Ag and 2.3 per cent lead-zinc combined
  • 303.1 g/t Ag Eq, including 244 g/t Ag and 1.1 per cent lead-zinc combined

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku Resources, commented on the results.

“As more high-grade results continue to roll in from our Silver Strike Project, the Solstice Zone has given us results that fully justify further exploration. The samples have demonstrated that the remaining silver content is more substantial than we expected, and that the interception of the conjugate veins sets controls higher-grade zones. These intersections form high-grade ore shoots within breccias and stockworks, that remain open at depth, and control the distribution of high-grade silver-lead-zinc-manganese mineralization at the Solstice Zone. This new information will be critical as we finalise targeting for the upcoming are 6,000m (metre) drill program.”

The assay results come from grab and chip samples taken in June 2022 during managements site visit to the project.

Samples were taken to test different areas along the Solstice exploration adit, opened during the 1990’s, which aimed to explore the veins around the historic Solstice Mine.

According to a historical compilation, the Solstice Mine has sporadically worked from a vertical shaft between 1914 and 1940, producing 475 tons of ore containing 20,761 oz of Ag and 107 oz of Au, 841 lb of Cu and 133,865 lb of Pb.

Tarku says its focus during the next drill program at the Solstice area will be to test the depth continuity of those ore shoots and to demonstrate the stability of the mineralization high-grade values.

Tarku Resources’ (TKU) stock price is up 9.09 per cent, trading at C$0.06 per share as of 3:36 pm EDT.
