Azarga Starts Reconnaissance Geochemical Exploration at Unkur
October 15, 2020Download PDF

AZARGA METALS CORP. ('Azarga Metals' or the 'Company') (TSX-V:AZR) reports that a reconnaissance geochemical exploration program has started on its 100% owned Unkur Copper-Silver Project (the 'Project') located in Eastern Russia. The object of the work is to identify additional areas of copper and silver mineralization outside of the current Mineral Resource and its extension, particularly on the eastern side of the 5,390 hectare property, which remains underexplored.

Michael Hopley, President and CEO said: 'Azarga's recent work at Unkur has been focused on the western side of the property, on the western limb of the Unkur syncline. However, historical work, particularly historical trenching, showed the existence of copper and silver mineralization in the eastern half of the property on what could be an eastern limb of the Unkur syncline as can be seen in the map below. The field team will spend the next few weeks with a portable mineral (XRF) analyzer searching for evidence of copper and silver mineralization to develop additional targets for follow-up drilling.'

The work program is being conducted by Unkur Project Manager Viktor Adyrkhaev, under the supervision of VP Exploration Dr. Alexander Yakubchuk. Initial results of the reconnaissance program should be available by late-November.

In additional to the commencement of these geochemical and reconnaissance works, Azarga Metals' independent consultant continue to work on an updated NI43-101 Mineral Resource estimate for the Project. The updated Mineral Resource estimate will include data from the 15 drill-holes (5,572 meters) drilled in the 2019-2020 drilling program, which extended the known mineralized strike on the western side of the Project by approximately 90%. The results of the updated Mineral Resource estimate will be published when finalized.
