Vancouver, B.C. – August 10, 2020: San Marco Resources Inc. (TSX-V: SMN) is pleased to announce that it has expanded its tenure holdings at its 100% optioned gold-silver-zinc Buck property in north-central B.C.
Highlights of the tenure acquisition include:
- The addition of five new mineral claims totalling 7,245 hectares.
- The Company’s land position in the area has increased by 33%, for a total of 22,204 hectares.
- The new ground includes mapped mineralization by previous explorers, and thus will be followed up by the Company’s geologists.
- The new claims will become subject to the Company’s property option agreement with Richard Billingsley and his wife, Gaye Richards, which in 2019 granted the Company the option to acquire the Buck property.
The strategic mineral tenure staking at the Buck property can be seen in Figure 1.
San Marco’s CEO, Bob Willis, commented “We are pleased to acquire additional ground at Buck. This expanded land position, contiguous to our current land holdings, will allow us to explore additional targets in the area. The mineralized surface footprint at Buck continues to expand, as such our new ground allows for continued definition of exploration targets within land we control”.
San Marco wishes to correct a statement in the Company’s news release dated August 6, 2020. In the first paragraph, it should read “The property is 170 km northwest of Artemis Gold Inc.’s Blackwater Gold Project (9.5 million ounces of Au, Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource; see Artemis Gold Inc.’s June 9th, 2020, news release – such resources are not indicative of resources on the Buck property).” The Company inadvertently wrote “such resources are not indicative of the mineralization on the Buck property”. San Marco is seeing many Buck /Blackwater geological similarities.
The Company recently provided an exploration update at its Buck property (see news release dated August 6, 2020). Phase 2 drilling is expected to begin by late August.
