Odyssey extends oxide gold zone at Tavsan, Turkey
Canada's Odyssey Resources has received additional results from its ongoing 10,000 meter trenching program at the Tavsan Gold property in western Turkey. Tavsan hosts a historic gold resource of 280,000 ounces within a surface area of roughly 325 by 400 meters.
The current trenching program, based to a large extent upon the known distribution of gold on surface from historic sampling, is aimed at extending this zone by up to 1,000 meters in length and from 100 to 500 meters in width.
Current results cover portions of trenches A, B and C, and extend the strike length of the main known zone of mineralization by at least 400 meters. Additionally, the trenches span a vertical range of more than 60 meters, thus extending mineralization vertically below the depth tested by previous drilling. Company management views the combination of an expanding surface area and greater vertical extent of mineralization as offering excellent potential for significantly increasing the gold resource at Tavsan.
Tavsan hosts oxidized, leachable, sediment-hosted epithermal gold in silicified rocks found within a widespread zone of disseminated and structurally controlled mineralization exposed at surface. Results from trenches F, G and H, up to 600 meters along strike from the main zone of mineralization, are pending. Historic sampling has already defined gold mineralization at surface over a large part of this area. — (menareport.com)
