Solaris Reports 1,184m of 0.68% CuEq From Surface in Expansion of Warintza Central; Maiden Drilling Commences at El Trinche

 

 

 

 

 

Solaris Resources Inc. (TSX: SLS) (OTCQB: SLSSF) is pleased to report the latest assay results from ongoing resource expansion drilling at its Warintza Project in southeastern Ecuador.

 

Highlights are listed below, with corresponding images in Figures 1-2 and detailed results in Tables 1-2. A dynamic 3D model is available on the Company’s website and will be updated to incorporate the most recent results.

 

Highlights

 

  • Three additional holes at Warintza Central have infilled gaps within the drilling pattern and extended the envelope of high-grade mineralization to the east, with high-grade mineralization encountered in all holes starting at or near surface
  • SLS-27 was collared in the southwestern part of Warintza Central and drilled into a partially-open volume to the northeast, returning 462m of 0.91% CuEq¹ from near surface, including 372m of 1.02% CuEq¹ from 36m depth, infilling and extending mineralization in this area
  • SLS-28 was collared in the middle of Warintza Central and drilled into a partially-open volume to the northeast, returning 632m of 0.68% CuEq¹ from surface, including 316m of 1.00% CuEq¹ from 42m depth, infilling and extending mineralization in this area
  • SLS-29 was collared at the southeastern limit of the Warintza Central grid and drilled into an open volume to the east, returning 1,184m of 0.68% CuEq¹ from surface, including 480m of 0.80% CuEq¹ from 48m depth, extending mineralization to the east in this area
  • Maiden drilling has begun at El Trinche, a potential southern extension of Warintza Central, with the first hole collared approximately 500m beyond the southern limit of drilling in an area of rock sampling with values ranging from 0.3-1.1% copper at surface
  • To date, 40 holes have been completed at Warintza Central with assays reported for 29 of these. The assay backlog has grown due to downtime at the Project’s principal lab in Lima to install additional equipment and increase capacity, with operations having now resumed
  • Increased news flow is expected from September through year-end, including remaining assays from SLSE-01, which marked a new discovery at Warintza East (see press release dated July 20, 2021), with the Company adding a second rig to accelerate this important drilling

 

 

Mr. Jorge Fierro, Vice President, Exploration, commented: “Drilling at Warintza Central continues to expand the dimensions of the zone beyond its original footprint. The strike length of Central now measures over 1,250m, with ongoing drilling aiming to extend the zone further to the east, broaden the zone to the north, and test the potential for a southern extension of at least 500m at El Trinche. At the same time, we await additional assays for our recent Warintza East discovery, where we have just added a second rig to accelerate drilling.”

Technical Information and Quality Control & Quality Assurance

 

Sample assay results have been independently monitored through a quality control/quality assurance program that includes the insertion of blind certified reference materials (standards), blanks and field duplicate samples. Logging and sampling are completed at a secured Company facility located in Quito, Ecuador. Drill core is cut in half on site and samples are securely transported to ALS Labs in Quito.

 

(1) No adjustments were made for recovery as the project is an early-stage exploration project and metallurgical data to allow for estimation of recoveries is not yet available. Solaris defines copper equivalent calculation for reporting purposes only. Copper-equivalence calculated as:  CuEq (%) = Cu (%) + 3.33 × Mo (%) + 0.73 × Au (g/t), utilizing metal prices of Cu – US$3.00/lb, Mo – US$10.00/lb and Au – US$1,500/oz.

 

Sample pulps are sent to ALS Labs in Lima, Peru and Vancouver, Canada for analysis. Total copper and molybdenum contents are determined by four-acid digestion with AAS finish. Gold is determined by fire assay of a 30-gram charge. ALS Labs is independent from Solaris. In addition, selected pulp check samples are sent to Bureau Veritas lab in Lima, Peru. Solaris 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. ZTEM data quality was validated by a qualified external professional using data validation procedures under high industry standards. Analytical data for the surface samples collected are from recent interpretations derived from ZTEM data and from previous operators as detailed in the technical report entitled, “Resource Estimate of the Warintza Central Cu-Mo Porphyry Deposit” prepared by Equity Exploration Consultants Inc. with an effective date of December 13, 2019, and available on the Company’s SEDAR profile and website. The drillhole data has been verified by Donald Taylor using data validation and quality assurance procedures under high industry standards.
