Arizona Metals’ First Drill Hole at the Western Target Intersects a Broad Interval of 63 Metres of Sulphide-Bearing Core, Including 16 Metres of VMS Mineralization

 

 

 

 

 

Arizona Metals Corp. (TSX:AMC) (OTCQX:AZMCF) is pleased to announce that the first hole (KM-23-104) drilled at the Western Target of the Kay Mine Project intersected 16 metres of stringer to semi-massive sulphide mineralization, including visible copper sulphide (chalcopyrite) and zinc sulphide (sphalerite). The VMS mineralization occurs within a broader interval of syn-mineral quartz-carbonate veining accompanied by sulphide minerals (pyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, and arsenopyrite) and anomalous zinc and copper readings from onsite portable XRF. This hole ended in sulphide-bearing core but was stopped at 888 metres downhole due to separated drill rods. Hole 104 has been submitted for assay and results are pending. A new branch hole, KM-23-104A, has been wedged up-hole in order to continue testing this new zone of mineralization (Fig. 2).

 

The Company believes that KM-23-104 intersected mineralization on the limb of an anticline along the prospective felsic host-rock horizon identified on the project. A drill rig is being moved to pad W2 to test for mineralization along strike to the north of this prospective stratigraphic horizon (Fig. 1). A hole here, KM-23-107, will commence shortly.

 

Marc Pais, CEO, commented “Intersecting such a broad interval of VMS mineralization in our very first hole at the Western Target is extremely gratifying, and is another step towards confirming our thesis that mineralization extends on our claims well beyond the footprint of the Kay Mine Deposit. We have observed mineralization and alteration in this first hole that is similar to what we see in proximity to massive sulphide mineralization at the Kay Mine Deposit. With this first successful hole to guide our targeting, we are moving a second drill to the Western Target to accelerate our testing of the new mineralized zone.”

 

Mark HanningtonTechnical Advisor, commented The assemblage of chlorite-pyrite-pyrrhotite-sphalerite encountered in the first hole at the Western Target is classic stringer mineralization typically seen at the margins of VMS deposits. Due to deformation, stringer mineralization is usually strongly transposed into the cleavage, so any associated massive sulfides may be along strike or even detached from the stringers (parallel to the axial plane of the folds). This is very similar to the deformed stringer mineralization in a number of large VMS deposits.”

858.0 874.2 16.2 Coarse felsic-intermediate volcaniclastics and volcanic breccia with semi-massive, stringer, and disseminated pyrite and pyrrhotite with trace sphalerite and chalcopyrite, black chlorite, and intense quartz-carbonate alteration.
874.2 887.7 13.6 Felsic to intermediate volcaniclastic and volcanic breccia containing quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins and laminated sulfides (pyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, arsenopyrite)
   

 

Recent surface sampling also returned up to 8.6% Cu in oxidized outcrop samples near the surface projection of the drilled mineralization (Figures 2 and 3). Another surface sample contained 3.3% Cu along the prospective stratigraphic horizon approximately 700 m north of drill pad W1. These samples are further confirmation of broadly distributed mineralization on the Kay project.

 

Arizona Metals is fully-funded (with $53 million in cash at Dec 31, 2022) to complete the remaining 2,900 meters planned for the Phase 2 program at Kay Mine Deposit (budgeted at $1.2 million) as well as an additional 76,000 meters in the Phase 3 program (budgeted at $32 million), which will be used to test the numerous parallel targets heading west of the Kay Mine Deposit, as well as possible northern and southern extensions.

The true width of mineralization is estimated to be 50% to 99% of reported core width, with an average of 76%. (2) Assumptions used in USD for the copper and gold metal equivalent calculations were metal prices of $4.63/lb Copper, $1937/oz Gold, $25/oz Silver, $1.78/lb Zinc, and $1.02/lb Pb. Assumed metal recoveries (rec.), based on a preliminary review of historic data by SRK and ProcessIQ1, were 93% for copper, 92% for zinc, 90% for lead, 72% silver, and 70% for gold. The following equation was used to calculate copper equivalence: CuEq = Copper (%) (93% rec.) + (Gold (g/t) x 0.61)(72% rec.) + (Silver (g/t) x 0.0079)(72% rec.) + (Zinc (%) x 0.3844)(93% rec.) +(Lead (%) x 0.2203)(93% rec.). The following equation was used to calculate gold equivalence: AuEq = Gold (g/t)(72% rec.) + (Copper (%) x 1.638)(93% rec.) + (Silver (g/t) x 0.01291)(72% rec.) + (Zinc (%) x 0.6299)(93% rec.) +(Lead (%) x 0.3609)(93% rec.). Analyzed metal equivalent calculations are reported for illustrative purposes only. The metal chosen for reporting on an equivalent basis is the one that contributes the most dollar value after accounting for assumed recoveries.

About Arizona Metals Corp

 

Arizona Metals Corp owns 100% of the Kay Mine Project in Yavapai County, which is located on a combination of patented and BLM claims totaling 1,300 acres that are not subject to any royalties. An historic estimate by Exxon Minerals in 1982 reported a “proven and probable reserve of 6.4 million short tons at a grade of 2.2% copper, 2.8 g/t gold, 3.03% zinc, and 55 g/t silver.” (Fellows, M.L., 1982, Kay Mine massive sulfide deposit: Internal report prepared for Exxon Minerals Company, November 1982, 29 p.) The historic estimate at the Kay Mine Deposit was reported by Exxon Minerals in 1982. The historic estimate has not been verified as a current mineral resource. None of the key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare the historic estimate were reported, and no resource categories were used. Significant data compilation, re-drilling and data verification may be required by a “qualified person” (as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects) before the historic estimate can be verified and upgraded to be a current mineral resource. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify it as a current mineral resource, and Arizona Metals is not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource.

 

The Kay Mine Deposit is a steeply dipping VMS deposit that has been defined from a depth of 60 m to at least 900 m. It is open for expansion on strike and at depth.

 

The Company also owns 100% of the Sugarloaf Peak Property, in La Paz County, which is located on 4,400 acres of BLM claims. Sugarloaf is a heap-leach, open-pit target and has a historic estimate of “100 million tons containing 1.5 million ounces gold” at a grade of 0.5 g/t (Dausinger, 1983, Westworld Resources).

 

The historic estimate at the Sugarloaf Peak Property was reported by Westworld Resources in 1983. The historic estimate has not been verified as a current mineral resource. None of the key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare the historic estimate were reported, and no resource categories were used. Significant data compilation, re-drilling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the historic estimate can be verified and upgraded to a current mineral resource. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify it as a current mineral resource, and Arizona Metals is not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource.

 

Qualified Person and Quality Assurance/Quality Control

 

All of Arizona Metals’ drill sample assay results have been independently monitored through a quality assurance/quality control protocol which includes the insertion of blind standard reference materials and blanks at regular intervals. Logging and sampling were completed at Arizona Metals’ core handling facilities located in Anthem and Black Canyon City, Arizona. Drill core was diamond sawn on site and half drill-core samples were securely transported to ALS Laboratories’ (“ALS”) sample preparation facility in Tucson, Arizona. Sample pulps were sent to ALS’s labs in Vancouver, Canada, for analysis.

 

Gold content was determined by fire assay of a 30-gram charge with ICP finish (ALS method Au-AA23). Silver and 32 other elements were analyzed by ICP methods with four-acid digestion (ALS method ME-ICP61a). Over-limit samples for Au, Ag, Cu, and Zn were determined by ore-grade analyses Au-GRA21, Ag-OG62, Cu-OG62, and Zn-OG62, respectively.

 

ALS Laboratories is independent of Arizona Metals Corp. and its Vancouver facility is ISO 17025 accredited. ALS also performed its own internal QA/QC procedures to assure the accuracy and integrity of results. Parameters for ALS’ internal and Arizona Metals’ external blind quality control samples were acceptable for the samples analyzed. Arizona Metals is not aware of any drilling, sampling, recovery, or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.

 

The qualified person who reviewed and approved the technical disclosure in this release is David Smith, CPG, a qualified person as defined in National Instrument43-101–Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Mr. Smith supervised the preparation of the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for this news release and has reviewed and approved the disclosure herein. Mr. Smith is the Vice-President, Exploration of the Company. Mr. Smith supervised the drill program and verified the data disclosed, including sampling, analytical and QA/QC data, underlying the technical information in this news release, including reviewing the reports of ALS, methodologies, results, and all procedures undertaken for quality assurance and quality control in a manner consistent with industry practice, and all matters were consistent and accurate according to his professional judgement. There were no limitations on the verification process.
