Exploration Results On Norseman’s Caribou Copper-Silver Project, British Columbia
Vancouver, British Columbia – February 22, 2022 – Norseman Silver Inc. (TSXV:NOC) (Q:NOCSF) (“Norseman” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that 3 concessions with a total area of approximately 3,567 hectares have been covered during fall 2021 field program. Detailed grid soil geochemical sampling was carried out within two separate blocks to cover in detail the NH and the Caribou West targets.
“Norseman is very pleased with the initial results to date that have shown significant copper values on surface at the Caribou Project, underlain by corresponding geophysical anomalies. We are looking forward to advancing this exciting project, as well as expanding our activities in Argentina.” stated, Sean Hurd, President & CEO.
A total of 148 rock outcrop and float samples were collected at the Caribou property. An outcrop sample from Caribou West, graded 42% Cu and 384 ppm Ag. From the total samples collected to date, 45 samples or 30% have Cu contents of 1% and above. Although most of these were from the NH area, significant numbers were also taken from the Caribou West.
The soil geochemistry defined areas with elevated values for Cu, Ag, Pb and Zn within the NH and Caribou West targets. The positively anomalous values show a NE-SW trend at NH and an E-W trend at Caribou West. Results to date have identified targets approximately 30-hectare and 40-hectare zones in the Caribou West and NH. (see table below and map below).
Ground IP and Magnetometer surveys were also carried out within a section of the soil sampling block at the NH area. Six (6) survey lines spaced 100 meters apart and with a total length of 6.3 kms. were covered by the survey. The IP work employed a pole-dipole array and along the same survey lines, total magnetic readings were taken at 5 to 10-meter intervals.
