Simon Drilling Intersects Encouraging Mineralization Over Significant Interval

  • Print
International Millennium Mining Corp. (the “Company” or “IMMC”) has completed a third hole, (S10-3), at its Simon Project in Mineral County, Nevada.  The diamond drill hole was collared 1,155 ft., S 75º E (95o Azimuth (Az)) from deep hole S10-2.  A fourth hole, (S10-4) initiated from the same pad as S10-3 is nearing completion.

Qualified Person, California Professional Geologist, Tom Evans, reports, hole S10-3 was drilled S 15o W (195o Az) at a steep angle (-78o) from NAD 27 UTM Coordinates E424592, N4268657.  It was collared in Mid-Tertiary age, rhyolite quartz crystal welded tuff that shows moderate clay alteration and weak pyritization on fractures.  The hole crossed a fault and entered intensely brecciated crystal tuff intruded by alaskite, alaskite breccia and a 5 ft thick pebble dike.  The breccia matrix shows strong sericite alteration and contains disseminated pyrite and occasional arsenopyrite.  A few siliceous clasts in a sericitic matrix show sporadic chalcopyrite, sphalerite and galena throughout the 90.6 ft. breccia unit.  Sphalerite and galena increased at a depth of 351.5ft. in the hole for 1.5 ft. and increased again in a brecciated alaskite dike at 359.5 ft. where disseminated and veinlet hosted sphalerite and galena was observed.  Similar mineralization continued to 372.5 ft where near-massive sphalerite/galena breccia mineralization near a limestone contact was intersected to 375.6 ft. The hole went into Triassic age Luning limestone at this depth.  This fractured and calcite veined limestone appears mostly barren, however an 8.5 ft. interval shows moderate sphalerite and galena mineralization from 412-420.5 ft.  The hole persisted in limestone to its termination at 507 ft.  The full brecciated and the mineralized limestone units, comprising approximately 120 ft. of core are to be assayed.

Drill hole S10-4, has so far, encountered similar geology, but mineralization, where observed, appears less intense than in hole S10-3.  Both drill holes and near-term planned drill holes, are exploring an un-mined block of favorable geology which appears to start above and continue below known lead-zinc-silver mineralization, exposed on the 353 ft. level between the No.1 and No. 3 production shafts of the old Simon mine.  Hole S10-3 and S10-4, as noted above, encountered lead-zinc mineralization with expected silver credits.  Core samples are being sent to ALS Chemex in Reno for analysis.
