EVERTON AND AZIMUT EXPAND THE STRIKE LENGTH OF THE CHARLES TARGET ON OPINACA “A” WITH SAMPLES GRADING UP TO 35.9 G/T AU
Everton Resources Inc. (TSX-V: EVR, Frankfurt: ERV) and Azimut Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AZM) are pleased to report new high-grade gold values at the Charles Target with possible lateral extensions over 1.0 kilometer. The Charles Target is a northeast-southwest trending mineralized zone located in the central part of Opinaca A. For the location of the Charles Target, please visit Everton’s website at www.evertonresources.com.
New rock chip sample results from the Charles Target, collected within an area of 50 meters x 10 meters, yielded results ranging from 1.0 g/t Au to 35.9 g/t Au. From the 66 new samples collected, 24 samples yielded values higher than 1.0 g/t Au, including 7 samples over 10.0 g/t Au (10.1 g/t Au, 10.4 g/t Au, 12.2 g/t Au, 21.6 g/t Au, 21.9 g/t Au, 28.0 g/t Au and 35.9 g/t Au).
An additional rock chip sample from an outcrop located 670 meters on strike to the northeast of the Charles Target returned a value of 2.7 g/t Au. Two other rock samples collected 160 meters and 350 meters to the southwest along the strike of the Charles Target returned respectively 4.0 g/t Au and 1.1 g/t Au. The total strike length of the Charles Target defines a corridor of approximately 1.3 kilometers in length. The lithologies identified in this corridor are composed of garnet and sulphide-rich, chloritized and silicified metasediments in contact with pegmatitic intrusions. The mineralization is comprised of up to 20% pyrite, arsenopyrite with minor pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite associated with garnet and chloritic zones.
Everton and Azimut are also pleased to report that a 1500-2000 meter drill program commenced on September 6th at the Smiley Target to test coinciding induced polarization (IP) and soil anomalies. In conjunction with the drill program, an IP survey is currently being conducted on the western extension of the Smiley Target and at the Charles Target on Opinaca A.
Rock samples were assayed for gold by Laboratoire Expert Inc in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec using FA-AA. Multi-element ICP scan assays will be completed by Activation Laboratory in Ancaster, Ontario.
