VANCOUVER, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Cayden Resources Inc. (TSX.V:CYD) ("Cayden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the Company's ongoing core drilling program at the El Barqueño Gold Property in Jalisco State, Mexico. Drilling highlights include 35.5 meters of 1.62 g/t Au, 214 g/t Ag, and 0.66 % Cu in hole 15, 18 meters of 3.38 g/t Au in hole 21 and 10 meters of 4.4 g/t Au in hole 24. Hole 25, the furthest hole drilled in the northeast part of the Zapoteca structure, hit three different intercepts of stock work mineralization including 27 meters of 1.16 g/t Au starting at surface.
The first 25 holes at the Azteca target area have tested approximately 1.2 km of the 2.2 km interpreted strike length to date. All the holes drilled in the Azteca target with the exception of one hole have penetrated the mineralized structures and have intersected significant gold mineralization.
Table 1 - Drill results from the Azteca target area at El Barqueño (BDD0001 = hole 1):
|Hole_ID||From||To||Width||Au (g/t)||Ag (g/t)||Cu %|
|BDD0018||no significant intercepts - hole abandoned before hitting Azteca fault|
|BDD0019||no significant intercepts - hole deviated into footwall of Azteca fault|
*Note: In Hole BDD0015 there was no recovery for the interval 48.53-51m (2.47m). To represent the width potential of the zone, the interval was included in the calculation, however values of 0 (zero) were used for Au, Ag, and Cu.
Cayden has completed approximately 4500 meters of its 5000 meter program with 3 holes currently pending assay. The Azteca results received to date indicate that gold grades continue and copper mineralization appears to increase at depth. The program has confirmed the existence of multiple mineralized structures present at Azteca, including some that were not previously identified by the recent surface trenching programs.
President and CEO Ivan Bebek states: "We are very pleased with the results to date from our ongoing drill program at our Azteca target and are looking forward to receiving additional results in the coming weeks. The results to date provide additional evidence of the growing consistency and predictability in the discovery of higher grade gold deposits that start at surface. The upcoming year will be exciting for Cayden shareholders as the company continues to drill and explore it's El Barqueño Gold Property".
Qualified Person - David Hladky, P. Geo. is the Qualified Person with respect to NI 43-101 at Barqueño. All core is drilled at HQ diameter and is sawed or split into equal halves on site. All samples are assayed using standard 30 gram fire assay with atomic absorption finish by Acme Labs in Vancouver, BC. QA/QC programs using internal standard samples, field and lab duplicates, re-assays, and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed. As the mapped mineralized corridors strike EW to ENE, the drill holes were designed to have azimuths perpendicular or close to perpendicular to the strike. As this is the first drill program by Cayden, the dips of the mineralized structures are not entirely known. However, based on mapping and previous drilling, all intercepts released herein are believed to be 60-100% of true width. Intercepts are calculated assuming a bulk-mining scenario, with a width cutoff of 5 meters and grade cutoff of 0.5 g/t Au. No intercepts were reported that averaged less than 0.5 g/t Au (rounded) and no intercepts have more than five consecutive meters of less than 0.2 g/t (excepting the intercept in BDD0015, where high Ag and Cu values occur throughout the single intercept).
