Pukanec - 100% Prospech
There are two groups of samples collected recently by Prospech, in Pukanec area. First group PR0804-811 were collected in Michelka area approximately 2 kilometres from Pukanec town. The average Au grade of these samples is 3.68 g/t and high grades are clearly associated with presence of Mn. Highest grade sample is PR0807 that returned 9.8 g/t Au and 478 g/t Ag.
Second group PR0824-832 was collected on NW part of the tenement. This part was inspected because of known existence of old workings in the area, however these were thought to be insignificant. The samples do not show presence of any Mn minerals, but are very different from typical Pukanec ore, with abundant coarse crystalline calcite gangue and small inclusions of sulphides (sphalerite, galena). The average of all nine samples is 3.58 g/t Au and 56 g/t Ag.
