Lucky Minerals Inc. (TSXV:LKY)(OTC PINK:LKMNF)(FRA:LKY) (“Lucky” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that field work on the northwestern section of the Sherman Prospect (Fortuna 4 concession), has identified an area with significant stockwork type quartz veining, in which a rock chip panel sample (0.50 m x 0.50 m) taken from outcrop, returned 0.477 g/t gold (click here to view map of sample locations).
Lucky’s CEO, Mr. Francois Perron stated: “The discovery of stockwork potential at the Sherman prospect is extremely exciting. As our field crews begin demobilisation from the current campaign, new assay results point to near surface potential. The team spent approximately 4 weeks at the Sherman prospect and successfully discovered anomalous gold in quartz veins (News Release -October 27, 2020), and now have added to that a mineralized stockwork discovery. While still early days, it is exciting to discover outcrop mineralization with bulk tonnage potential. Our work in the Fortuna concessions continues to underscore the gold potential of the area.”
Sherman Prospect – quartz stockwork in meta-granites
Geological field work recently identified this area of stockwork type quartz veins with disseminated pyrite and iron oxides, within fracture surfaces in a meta-granite. It is along this densely fractured intrusive that hydrothermal fluids have migrated and deposited the quartz-pyrite found as narrow veinlets with widths ranging from a few millimetres up to 3 centimeters. A rock chip panel sample (0.50 m x 0.50 m) (#261490) taken from outcrop in this area returned 0.477 g/t gold.

Though still early stage, Lucky is excited about this new stockwork system, as it may have potential for a large tonnage low grade type target.

The next step in this area will include detailed field reconnaissance and sampling in order to define the scale of the structure, behaviour of the quartz vein stockwork and its gold content.
All rock samples are submitted to ALS Chemex laboratories in Quito for prep work, and the analytical work is completed at their lab facility in Lima, Peru. ALS Chemex is an ISO certified and accredited laboratory. QA/QC protocols are in place and include the insertion of a coarse blank, a standard and duplicate sample on every batch of 25 samples.
