SAMA INTERSECTS 4.6 METERS OF MASSIVE SULPHIDE GRADING 1.98% NICKEL, 0.92% COPPER AND 2.54 GPT PALLADIUM IN FIRST TYPHOON TARGET AT SAMAPLEU

 

 

 

 

 

Sama Resources Inc. (TSX-V: SME) (OTC-PK: SAMMF) is pleased to announce the first drill hole of the 2020 campaign (hole: SM2020-1) aiming at a shallow target defined from HPX TechCo Inc’s proprietary Typhoon™ electromagnetic geophysical survey performed at the Samapleu deposit returned 53 m grading 0.43% nickel, 0.30% copper and 0.52 grams per tonne palladium, including 4.6 m grading 1.98% Ni and 0.92% Cu and 2.54 gpt Pd. SM2020-1 was drilled 200 m southwest of the current mineral resources, hence extending the mineralized trend at the deposit.  A second drill rig is currently set to test the 700 m deep Typhoon target at Samapleu (Fig. 2).

 

The mineralization encountered in hole SM2020-1 is characterized by aggregates of the nickel, copper and iron sulphides pentlandite, chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite, respectively.  Pentlandite occurs together with pyrrhotite, while the chalcopyrite is either mixed with the pentlandite and pyrrhotite or occurs as late millimetric to centimetric sulphide veins/accumulations. The textures of the sulphide mineralization vary from disseminated to semi-massive and massive (> 80% of sulphide material).

The 2020 Typhoon program will resume in February and will follow the schedule as indicated in Figure 3. Detailed interpretation of the several Typhoon targets performed at the Yepleu deposit (25 kilometers southwest of Samapleu) continues as planned.
