Odyssey Resources’ trenching at Tavsan in Turkey confirms widespread gold
Odyssey Resources has reported that trenching at the Tavsan gold deposit in Turkey continues to progress, with results from the first trench sampled having been recently received.
Highlights from several intervals sampled over a length of close to 500 meters in Trench D, include four meters grading 6.94 grams of gold per metric ton (g/t), 92 meters grading 0.95 g/t, and 14 meters grading 1.09 g/t. Overall, the combined length of mineralization exposed in the trench exceeds 280 meters, from sample results obtained, to date.
Tavsan is a typical jasperoid-type, sediment-hosted epithermal gold deposit, located in western Turkey in a basin and range region similar to Nevada. Tavsan lies in an historic mining district, with numerous old antimony mines and occurrences, chromite mines, coal mines, and borate deposits found in the area. — (menareport.com)
