Akkaya Zinc Project
Pasinex ready to drill first ever drill-targets at the Akkaya Zinc Property in Turkey by early September
Pasinex, through its joint venture interest in Horzum AS, will commence diamond drill-testing at the Akkaya Zinc Property in early September. Three holes will be drilled from each of three drill-pads for a total of 2,000 metres. Compelling drill targets have been generated over the last few months through a combination of detailed re-mapping in the rugged hill country between 500 metres and one kilometre north of the Company’s Pinargozu zinc mine. Generation of high priority prospect zones involved expert analysis of satellite image interpretation (Sentinel) to identify favourable structural settings coincident with the “White Marble” host-rock. Much greater resolution on specific drill targets within selected prospective zones came from lithogechemical sampling of outcropping marble combined with ionic leach surveys. This process has generated compelling drill targets.
