Sego Resources Drilling Intersects Further Copper & Gold Mineralization at Miner Mountain






Sego Resources Inc. (TSX-V: SGZ) is pleased to announce that drilling at the Company’s 100% owned Miner Mountain Copper-Gold Porphyry Project has intersected further copper and gold mineralization at depth. A total 600 metres of diamond drilling was recently completed at the Cuba Zone of Miner Mountain, located near Princeton, BC, Canada.



Company CEO J.Paul Stevenson commented, “Sego’s recent drilling at the Cuba Zone of Miner Mountain has returned copper, gold & silver grades that indicate the continuation of mineralization in this project area. We are excited by the new drill results because they show strong copper and gold mineralization was intersected in multiple zones at depth. The results also indicate a new area of alteration, including potassic alteration, which we will explore further in 2018.”



Cuba Zone Drilling



Assay results from two new diamond drill holes from Miner Mountain’s developing Cuba Zone have returned copper and gold grades comparable to grades encountered in prior drill testing.



The first diamond drill hole logged as DD Hole 17-29 (Azimuth 333, Dip -45, UTM 5484281N, 683909E) successfully intersected:


  • 21 metres of 1.17% Copper, 0.30 g/t Gold and 4 g/t Silver from 14 metres depth to 35 metres depth, and
  • 21 metres of 0.16% Copper, 0.51 g/t Gold and 1.71 g/t Silver from 77 metres depth to 98 metres depth.



DD Hole 17-29 was specifically drilled to establish width with respect to the prior successful vertical Diamond Drill Hole 21-12 which intersected 100.4 metres of 0.95% Copper, 0.55 g/t Gold and 3.48 g/t Silver (see Sego news release of March 12, 2012), and to explore to the northwest.



The second diamond drill hole logged as DD Hole 17-30 (Azimuth 180, Dip -65, UTM 5484309N, 683996E) successfully intersected:


  • 18 metres of 0.29% Copper, 0.36 g/t Gold, 3.0 g/t Silver from 113 metres depth to 131 metres depth, and
  • 105 metres of 0.31% Copper, 0.08 g/t Gold and 2.29 g/t Silver from 164 metres depth to 269 metres depth, including:
    • 18 metres of 0.50% Copper, 0.28 g/t Gold, 3.17 g/t Silver from 167 metres to 185 metres, and
    • 21 metres of 0.6% Copper, 0.03 g/t Gold, 1.6 g/t Silver from 248 metres to 269 metres.



DD Hole 17-30 was positioned 150 metres to the east of DDH-17-29, and targeted to the south of previous drilling in order to test for copper-gold porphyry mineralization in this new area.



Sego Resources is planning further extensive drilling to commence in Q1 2018. Future drilling is planned to locate the primary copper-gold-mineralizing heat source, and to prove consistent copper-gold grades for a resource calculation, particularly in the new area near DDH 17-30 located to the south of previous drilling. The Company’s aim is to outline a bulk tonnage copper-gold porphyry deposit at Miner Mountain to maximize shareholder value.
