Toronto, ON / TheNewswire / August 8th, 2018 - Chilean Metals Inc. ("Chilean Metals," "CMX" or the "Company")(TSX.V:CMX, OTCQB: CMETF, SSE:CMX, MILA:CMX, FRA: IVV1, BER : IVV1). Chilean Metals has received the assay results from two drillholes at the Castlereagh prospect at Bass River in Nova Scotia.
Two holes were drilled to test a strong EM conductor at the Castlereagh prospect. Both holes intersected strong sulphide mineralisation in the target zones but in both instances the sulphide assemblage is dominated by pyrrhotite and not base metal sulphides. As expected from visual assessment of the core, no significant assays have been returned.
Mick Sharry, President and COO of Chilean Metals commented as follows : "In the short period of time since the management restructure we have tested the Castlereagh target and brought it to a decision point. In parallel with that we have defined and already executed phase 1 of our Cobalt strategy by successfully securing key tenements, conducting geophysical surveys which have defined large targets and located and re-sampled historic drill core which has returned strong Cobalt results associated with one of those geophysical targets. We have a strong pipeline of Cobalt and IOCG prospects, of which the Cobalt targets are definitely the highest priority. Prioritizing and systematically testing quality targets is the key to adding value for our shareholders and I'm very please with how we are delivering on that. I'm really looking forward to testing these quality Cobalt targets going forward."
Chilean follows systematic and rigorous sampling and analytical protocols which meet and exceed industry standards. All drill holes are diamond core holes with NQ core diameters. Drill core is transported to and stored at the DNR facility at Stellarton. The core is then cut in half with a diamond saw blade with half the sample retained in the core box for future reference and the other half placed into a pre-labelled plastic bag, sealed with a plastic zip tie, and identified with a unique sample number. The core is typically sampled over a 1 to 2 meter sample interval unless the geologist determines the presence of an important geological contact. The bagged samples are then stored in a secure area and are then sent by batch to the Actlabs laboratories in Ancaster for assay. Chilean independently inserts certified control standards, coarse field blanks, and duplicates into the sample stream where appropriate to monitor data quality. These standards are inserted "blindly" to the laboratory in the sample sequence prior to shipping. Laboratory duplicates are also analyzed. At the laboratory samples are dried, crushed, and pulverized and then analyzed using a combination of INAA and ICP-OES.
