Two Important Porphyry Targets to be Drill Examined

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mirasol Sources Ltd. (TSX-V: MRZ) (OTCPK: MRZLF) (the “Firm” or “Mirasol”) is happy to announce the graduation of a 2,000m drill program on the Rubi Cu venture (“Rubi”) in Chile. Two vital Cu-Mo-Au porphyry-style targets, Lithocap and Zafiro, will probably be examined. The Rubi drill program is being totally funded by Mine Discovery Fund Pty Ltd. (“MDF”) and is operated by Mirasol, below an possibility settlement introduced on October 15, 2020.

Mirasol’s President, Tim Heenan, said: “The Rubi porphyry targets are technically robust and have the potential to host large-scale copper discoveries. We’re excited to be drilling at Rubi after efficiently finishing the required drill allowing and look ahead to reporting on the outcomes from this program.”

The 7,543 ha Rubi venture is situated throughout the prolific Paleocene age porphyry belt of northern Chile, which is host to a variety of vital, presently producing porphyry Cu deposits. The venture lies at comparatively low elevation (1,900-2,100m), inside 20 km of each the El Salvador Cu-Mo-Au mine and the Potrerillos smelter, with wonderful entry to port services at Chanaral situated some 80 km to the west.

Rubi Drilling Overview

The Lithocap goal at Rubi covers a 3.5 km by 2.0 km space centered on a big, deeply weathered, superior argillic alteration zone that’s surrounded by gravel cowl with thicknesses modelled from a gravity survey ranging between 10 and 50m. A lot of these lithocap alteration zones could be discovered adjoining to or above massive, productive porphyry Cu deposits. Drilling by Mirasol’s earlier companion examined areas peripheral to the outcropping lithocap exposures, the place earlier rock chip sampling returned anomalous values of Mo and regionally Cu (Determine 2). This outcropping lithocap stays undrilled as does its extension to the west below shallow submit mineral gravels.

The present program will drill check hid and shallow lined, excessive and low magnetic responses on the western extensions of the lithocap, with 6 preliminary brief diamond drill holes. The target of those drill holes is to pattern the highest of bedrock on the interface with the gravel cowl. The alteration, mineralization and rock-type info gathered from geological, geochemical, and spectral evaluation will then be used to vector in direction of a possible centre of mineralization for testing with one deeper diamond drill gap (>500m).

The Zafiro goal options an untested 2.8 km by 2.2 km enticing, though refined, round magnetic excessive surrounded by a partial, doughnut-shaped magnetic low below gravel-cover. This magnetic signature could also be indicative of a doubtlessly mineralized porphyry intrusive heart with a peripheral pyritic alteration halo. Mirasol’s stream sediment sampling of gullies situated 1km north to northwest of the Zafiro goal, beforehand returned widespread anomalous Cu (Determine 3) suggesting a main mineralized porphyry supply of Cu within the basement rocks or an “unique” supply of Cu within the gravels. The present drill program contemplates a single diamond drill gap (>400m inside bedrock) to check this porphyry Cu goal, estimated to be lined by as much as 180m of latest Atacama gravels.
