Odyssey's Tavsan trenching program in Turkey underway
Odyssey Resources has reports that government permits have been received and that trenching is now underway on the company's Tavsan gold project in western Turkey.
Tavsan hosts disseminated, sediment-hosted epithermal oxide gold mineralization that has been documented over a strike length in excess of 3.5 kilometers in several zones. Odyssey is earning a 100 percent interest in the Tavsan project from Teck Cominco.
Previous work focused on the Main Zone, which Teck Cominco estimated to contain an unclassified and pre 43-101 resource of 280,000 ounces. Initial Odyssey fieldwork has led to the recognition of a steeply-dipping shear zone that cuts through and connects all of the gold mineralized zones in the vicinity of the Main Zone. This has greatly increased the size potential of the Main Zone as well as others known to the northeast, along the strike of the shear. — (menareport.com)
