Toronto, Canada, August 12, 2015 – Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; FSE: P2Q; “Eloro”) and Tartisan Resources Corp. (CSE:TTC; “Tartisan”) are pleased to announce that they have received assays taken from the Rufina East, Rufina West, and San Markito mineralized zones of the La Victoria Polymetallic Property, Huandoval Region, Ancash Department, Peru.
Measured chip samples from the New Mineralized Zone on Rufina East (see News Release 5 May, 2015) ranged from 8.4 g/t gold, 39.6 g/t silver, and 1.26% copper to 63.8 g/t gold, 52.7 g/t silver, and 0.77% copper.
Assays averaging 1.35 g/t gold and 29.80 g/t silver were received from three samples taken from Rufina West; and assays averaging 0.77 g/t gold and 307.30 g/t silver were received from two samples of the Breccia Zone on the San Markito Sector.
In addition, assay values of 3.79 g/t gold and 34.6 g/t silver were obtained from a 45cm chip sample collected from a zone of graphitic sediments some 120m east of the New Mineralized Zone on Rufina East, where no sampling had been done previously.
Samples were taken for: 1) geochemical background testing; 2) geometallurgical studies, including the role of arsenopyrite in gold mineralization, and; 3) initial comminution testing of the mineralizing environments at Rufina East (oxide), Rufina West (oxide > sulphide) and San Markito (sulphide > oxide). The samples were collected during Eloro’s April 2015 site visit (see News Release 5 May 2015).
Quality Assurance/Quality Control sampling included a Certified Reference Material (“standard”) and a duplicate sample inserted into the sample stream. The standard, an OREAS 62e sample, assayed 9.89 g/t gold and 9.70 g/t silver and has a certified reference value of 9.37 g/t gold and 9.86 g/t; both gold and silver values are within the 95% confidence limit for OREAS 62e. The duplicate sample returned 6 ppb gold compared to 7 ppb gold for the original, and <0.5 ppm silver in both cases. The original samples were digested in aqua regia and then assayed using ICP with MS finish. Overlimit samples (56467 and 56470 for gold and 56472 for silver) were re-assayed with metallic screen and fire assay with MS finish by Bureau Veritas (formerly Acme Labs and Inspectorate Labs in Lima, Peru, and Vancouver, Canada. Sample 56474 was digested with lithium borate fusion given high visible sulphides and assayed by ICP/MS at Agat Laboratories in Mississauga, Ontario.
“The La Victoria Property just gets more interesting as we receive more analytical results and build our understanding of the underlying system”, said Eloro Chairman and C.E.O. Mr. Tom Larsen, “especially at Rufina East with the discovery of another new mineralized zone that carries gold and silver.”
A detailed program of channel sampling by rock saw and geological mapping has been completed over the roadcuts at Rufina East and West; samples are being prepared for analysis. Mechanized trenching, diamond-drilling, and metallurgical testing are planned for 2015 on the La Victoria Polymetallic Project once the Declaración de Impacto Ambiental (“DIA”) project environmental permit has been approved by the Peruvian Ministry of the Environment.
