Tertiary Minerals plc ("Tertiary" or "the Company")
Mt Tobin Project Update
Further to its announcement of 20 July 2020, Tertiary Minerals plc is pleased to provide the analytical results from preliminary reconnaissance sampling at the Company's Mt Tobin Silver Prospect in Nevada, USA.
Mt Tobin Silver Prospect
Ø Main target - large area of hydrothermal alteration 60m wide x 1,200m long with associated silver geochemical anomaly recorded by previous explorer.
Ø Preliminary rock samples taken from prospector's hand dug pits have returned silver values of up to 101 grammes/tonne (g/t) silver (3.12 ounces/ton) with several other samples returning between 15 and 91g/t silver.
Ø These and other anomalous results were returned over a 450m strike length sampled to date.
Ø Mineralisation is open to north and south, structurally controlled and spatially related to dyke intrusion.
Ø Further mapping, sampling and soil sampling is planned to better define the widths and strike extent of mineralisation in this poorly exposed area.
A plan showing the location and distribution of the reconnaissance sampling results is available on the Company's website at: https://www.tertiaryminerals.com/projects/other-projects/mt-tobin
Commenting today, Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham said:
"These are very pleasing results from initial reconnaissance work at Mt Tobin and we look forward to increasing the pace of exploration on this and other precious metal projects in our Nevada portfolio this summer and autumn. It's an interesting time for silver with the silver price up 80% in the past 18 weeks and arguably showing more leverage than the gold price in the current market conditions."
