  • Dark Horse Resources is continuing surface sampling and mapping at its Las Opeńas Gold project, in Argentina
  • The Presagio target was the main focus with highly anomalous results of gold and silver being returned
  • Recent samples from Presagio East returned anomalous arsenic, lead and zinc

Dark Horse Resources is continuing a surface sampling and detailed mapping program at its Las Opeñas Gold project.

The Presagio target was the most significant with highly anomalous rates of gold and silver being returned.

Las Opeñas is located in the north-western region of the mining friendly province of San Juan in Argentina.

A greenfield discovery of five new mineralised zones at the Presagio Target has extended its length from 2.7 kilometres to 3.7 kilometres. Four out of the five mineralised zones returned anomalous gold and silver results.

The best results derive from one vein that returned particularly high bonanza grades of silver at 2098 grams per tonne and 272 grams per tonne.

Dark Horse’s on-going mapping of Las Opeñas is outlining the Presagio System as a complex vein set composed of multiple veins and vein breccias varying from 200 to 2200 metres in length.

Recent samples from Presagio East returned anomalous arsenic, lead and zinc, which gives ground for further investigations in surface sampling and mapping.

Dark Horse has had success in defining new high-grade, precious metal vein systems from ongoing surface exploration throughout the winter and early spring.

Company management has intent to continue drilling what is identified at Las Opeńas.

Shares in Dark Horse are down 11.1 per cent trading for 0.4 cents apiece. Its market cap is valued at $9.113 million.
