Mirasol advances the Atlas gold-silver project in Northern Chile with new trench sampling and geophysical interpretation

View PDF VANCOUVER, BC, December 10, 2014 – Mirasol Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MRZ, Frankfurt: M8R) Detailed mapping and sampling of Trench TR-AKI-06 and the surrounding outcrops have outlined controls on silver-dominated mineralization, and highlighted prospective drill targets for large scale anomalies at the Atlas Silver Zone (ASZ) and new Oculto zone. The combination of geology and IP geophysical anomalies at ASZ suggests mineralization in TR-AKI-06 is associated with the edge of a large, covered, conductive feature that may represent a […]
