Extorre Gold Mines Limited TSX:XG announced assays from its Falcon Property northwest of Cerro Moro in Argentina. Results include 1.33 g/t gold over 30 metres, 0.81 g/t gold and 12 g/t silver over 56 metres, 1.12 g/t gold and 30 g/t silver over 53 metres, 0.53 g/t gold and 33 g/t silver over 30 metres, and 0.73 g/t gold and 10 g/t silver over 27 metres.
Chief Geologist Glen Van Kerkvoot commented, “While four rigs remain dedicated to expanding the high grade resource at Cerro Moro we have expanded the regional exploration team in order to intensify regional exploration, whilst enabling the successful Cerro Moro team to remain focussed on exploration and development there. Falcon is an exciting new project with some analogies to a lithological controlled system such as deposits in the Ivanhoe mining district of northern Nevada. Both Mariana’s Dos Calandrias and Extorre’s Falcon projects have opened the Deseado Massif to potential for large disseminated epithermal deposits. A second drill rig has been contracted in order to enable the simultaneous drilling of both the Puntudo and the Falcon properties.We have commenced metallurgical testwork of Falcon drillcore to ascertain if the gold is likely to be recoverable by conventional extraction and leaching techniques. We look forward to results from the next drilling program at Falcon whereby we expect to gain better information on the size and continuity of the gold mineralized zone.”
