The Trinta Project is a 9,568 hectare property which is located in Maranhao State, Brazil. The property consists of an exploration license located approximately 2 kilometers northeast of the Company´s Montes Áureos Gold project. The property has distinctive structural features that are consistent with the regional geology of the Gurupi Gold Belt and the control of gold mineralization within the belt.
A property reconnaissance float, stream sediment, soil and trenching program was completed comprising 1,328 samples in the spring of 2012. As a result, three target areas with gold soil anomalies were identified. Follow-up work completed in one of the areas confirmed the presence of mineralization associated with quartz veining in a foliated granitoid.
Highlights of the most recent exploration work at Trinta include:
- Gold mineralization was identified in four trenches associated with quartz veining in foliated granitoid rocks.
- Identified seven discreet gold soil anomalies measuring from 0.5 km up to 1.2 km at a 40-ppb cut-off (background is <5ppb).
Government geophysical surveys from the district show the mineralization to be consistent with linear NNW-SSE magnetic highs.
