Cohiba Minerals Limited (CHK.AX) March 2021 Quarterly Activities and Cashflow Reports
Melbourne, Australia, April 29, 2021 - (ABN Newswire) - Cohiba Minerals Limited (ASX:CHK) provides below an update in relation to the exploration activities carried out during the March 2021 quarter.
Olympic Domain Tenements
Horse Well Area
Analytical work was undertaken by ALS Laboratories on drill core from HWDD03 and HWDD04.
HWDD03, which was the eastern most drill hole in the current program of work showed visual evidence of minor sulphide occurrences within altered hematitic granite. HWDD03 (Figure 1*) was analysed from 982 - 1,143m in variable length intervals (from 0.15 - 2.0 m) based on visual determination of zones of interest. Despite the visual determination of these zones of interest HWDD_03 did not return appreciable copper results with one minor intersection as summarised below:
1,062.1 - 1,062.4m 0.3m @ 0.31% Cu
HWDD04 (Figure 2*) was analysed from 950 - 1,432.6m (EOH) in 1 metre intervals except where mineralisation was visually apparent, and the interval length was adjusted accordingly. The results from HWDD04 showed persistent low-level copper throughout with some very good intersections of copper, gold and silver mineralisation as summarised below (refer to ASX Announcement dated 10 March 2021).
Cohiba has engaged the services of subject matter experts (SME) in the area of IOCG deposits and they are currently undertaking extensive petrological and geochemical assessments of holes HWDD03 and HWDD04 to aid in the development of the next program of work.
Planning is currently underway for up to an additional 12 drill holes in the Horse Well area which are targeting additional discrete IOCG targets as well as potential extensions to the mineralised zone associated with HWDD03 and HWDD04.
Pernatty "C" Area
No on-ground work was carried out at Pernatty C during the period. The drilling program at Pernatty C which was to be undertaken following the Horse Well drilling program was delayed but has now been earmarked for commencement in the current quarter.
