TARACHI GOLD CORP. UPDATE ON FIELD PROGRAM
Tarachi Gold Corp. has provided an update on fieldwork activities on the company's group of mining concessions known as the Tarachi project located in the Sierra Madre gold belt of eastern Sonora, Mexico. The Company's projects all lie within an established gold producing region, bordering Alamos' Mulatos mine and Agnico Eagle's La India mine. Tarachi's land package is contained within in the prolific Sierra Madre Gold Belt.
Detailed mapping and sampling on the La Dura and Virginia areas of the southern Jabali concession is near completion. At La Dura the detailed underground sampling was completed, 91 samples were submitted to BV Laboratory in Hermosillo on July 3rd gold results are expected to take 7-10 days.
Preliminary field work on the northern concessions of San Javier, Pretoria and Chivitas was also conducted Tarachi geologists have discovered porphyry style mineralization in outcrop on the Pretoria concession and are continuing to conduct detailed geological mapping and sampling of the porphyry mineralization.
Regarding the drill permitting process, access to the main areas of the northern concessions has been secured; the terms for permission to drill are still to be determined. Two environmental applications, one for the northern and another for the southern concession groups are now ready for submission ready. The Company is planning to immediately commence an HQ diamond drilling program this summer once all permits are in place. Details of the proposed diamond drilling program will be released soon after the completion of this program.
In addition, the Company has engaged Commodity-TV and Rohstoff-TV (C&R-TV) for an initial three-month period to assist with the Company's investor relations activities. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company will pay C&R-TV euros22,900, plus expenses. C&R-TV is based in Switzerland and will introduce the Company to its European investor network by recording, translating, broadcasting and disseminating on its digital platform's news, articles, interviews and webinars.
Tarachi Project Descriptions
The Tarachi Project consist of the San Javier, Pretoria, Chivitas, Jabali, Juliana, Texana and concessions for a total of 2,560 hectares in the prolific Mulatos gold belt. The Tarachi Project is approximately 220 km by air east of the City of Hermosillo, and 300 km south of the border between the United States of America and Mexico. The Jabali claim covers the La Dura historic mine and several other small-scale mines. The gold mineralization and geology at Jabali is believed to be similar in character to the gold mineralization at the Mulatos mine. Alamos Gold Inc., in a 2003 annual report identifies the Jabali project as being part of the "Los Bajios" mineralized trend which the report suggests has the potential to host another Mulatos size resource. The Tarachi Project is an early stage exploration project and the mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company's property.
The Mulatos gold trend is part of the Sierra Madre gold and silver belt that also hosts the operating Mulatos gold mine immediately southeast of the La India property and the Pinos Altos mine and the Creston Mascota deposit 70 kilometres to the southeast. Mineralization occurs within silicified rhyodacite and is associated with vuggy silica alteration, and breccia with iron oxide (hematite and specularite). Native gold occurs along late-stage fracture coatings in the breccias and is locally associated with barite. Past exploration has returned values from trace to 30g/t Au in grab samples. Native gold has also been identified in outcrop on the southern extension of the La Dura mine trend.
