Vancouver, British Columbia September 27, 2022 – Optimum Ventures Ltd. (“Optimum” or the “Company”) (TSXV: OPV) announces that the Company has received the gold and silver assays for select samples from BR, Usrula and Golden Summit zones located on the Harry property.
Highlights of the sampling include:
- 1.8 to 26.6 g/t Au and 282.9 to 1003.2 g/t Ag from 5 samples on the BR zone.
- 0.8 to 6.5 g/t AU and 131.3 to 208.1 g/t AG on the Ursula zone.
- 0.1 to 2.3 g/t Au and 470.3 to 5477.4 g/t Ag on the Golden Summit zone.
This photo shows the relationship of the Swann zone to the BR zone. Optimum has also exposed a small portion of the Swann zone in about 2.5 m of overburden in preparation for further exploration based on the success of this year’s drilling.
A photo of mineralization out of bedrock is attached.
Shaw drilling of 1 m holes on the Saw Cut zone has intersected abundant sphalerite (ZnS) over at least 10 m within an overall zone that is up to 40m wide. A photo is attached.
Grab sample assaying of this zone were ranging from 0.1 to 5.4 g/t Au and 10.2 to 158.4 g/t Ag (from 3 samples) associated with the strong sphalerite mineralization.
The new zone Ursula South consists of mineralization of a stockwork of galena-sphalerite veins up to 0.8 m wide over a width of 5 m. This new zone is located in an overburden area approximately 75 m south of the Ursula zone.
Assays were conducted by Seacan Labs Stewart based in Stewart BC.
