VANCOUVER - Sable Resources Ltd. (TSXV: SAE) (OTCQB: SBLRF) is pleased to report the discovery of new mineralized structures at Fierro Bajo within the El Fierro Project.
El Fierro is a historical artisanal silver-rich mining district located 250 kilometres northwest of San Juan, Argentina and 120 km north of Sable's Don Julio Project. Last February, Sable started the first drill campaign ever conducted at the Project testing the four known mineralized zones: Fierro Bajo, Fierro Alto, La Verde, and Lagunitas. Two new veins recently found at Fierro Bajo increase the total strike length of known mineralized veins from 8,500m to 9,250m.
New geochemical results from trenching and mapping increased the footprint of the El Fierro Project to 8.6km by 6.2km.
The new veins will be drill tested during the next drilling campaign planned for Q4 2021.
The new structures were found in a zone located 1.7km southwest of the Fierro Bajo main area. Structures FBS1 and FBS2 have a northwest strike and were observed in a series of small adits that were not previously recognized. These two structures have a combined strike length of 750m and are running close to the contact between Carboniferous metasediments and a Triassic granite. A combination of channel and grab samples returned significant values including: Dr. Ruben Padilla, Sable's President and CEO commented, 'It's very encouraging that results from pending analysis continue to increase the footprint of the project and these new veins add more high-grade veins to feed our list of drill ready targets at El Fierro. Our next drilling campaign for El Fierro is already being planned to continue with the evaluation of the known structures and to test multiple new veins found with mapping and prospection recently undertaken.'
Channel samples on outcrops and adits are taken perpendicular to structures and represent true width. Silver equivalent (AgEq) is calculated based on 100% recovery and prices of USD 18.0 per oz for silver; USD 1,500 per oz for gold; USD 0.85 per pound for lead; USD 1.10 per pound for zinc and USD 3.0 per pound for copper. Cu, Pb, Zn values lower than 0.1%, and Au values lower than 0.1 g/t have not been considered within the AgEq calculation.
ABOUT EL FIERRO PROJECT
The El Fierro Project is located 250 km northwest of San Juan, Argentina and 120 km north of Sable's Don Julio Project in one of the best-known historical mining districts in the San Juan province. The El Fierro Project consists of four main known mineralized areas - Fierro Alto, Fierro Bajo, La Verde, and Lagunitas over an area of 8.6km x 6.2km. Three of the four areas host a number of old artisanal mining workings where silver, lead and zinc were intermittently mined since the late 1800's until the 1960s. Prior to Sable's 2021 drill program, the Property had never been drilled before. Sable currently controls 46,391 hectares covering all the historically mineralized areas and additional highly prospective ground over a large magnetic anomaly.
