The metallurgical drill holes used at Iska Iska are larger diameter than the regular diamond drill exploration holes. For Eloro (ELO.T) and its CEO, Tom Larsen, this makes all the difference. “The more the better,” said Larsen in a telephone interview. “The Iska Iska minerals are mainly disseminated in stockworks and veinlets. A bulk sample is much more representative of the grades you will encounter when you mine the deposit.” read more

Bulk Tonnage Metallurgical Tests Return Significantly Higher Silver Head Grade of 91 g Ag/t Compared with the 31 g Ag/t Average Grade from the Original Twinned Holes in the Polymetallic Domain at Iska Iska, Potosi Department, Southwestern Bolivia

Metallurgical tests from a 6.3 tonne PQ drill core bulk sample representative of the higher grade Polymetallic (Ag-Zn-Pb) Domain returned a significantly higher average silver value of 91 g Ag/t compared to the weighted average grade of the original twinned holes at 31 g Ag/t strongly suggesting that the average silver grade is likely significantly underreported in the original twinned holes due to the much smaller sample size The metallurgical tests confirm the viability of “Ore-Sorting” and Dense Media Separation at Iska Iska Project. Excellent pre-concentration results from the higher grade Polymetallic (Ag-Zn-Pb) Domain are now proven in a bulk sample. The 91.9% recovery of silver and lead with 76.0% recovery of zinc into a high grade (176g/t Ag, 1.88%Pb, 2.86%Zn = 299.15 g Ag eq/t) potential mill feed stream that contains only 46.6% of the Run of Mine Tonnage. The introduction of the pre-concentration stage allows Eloro to have more operational flexibility based upon conducting economic trade off scenarios between reducing downstream capital-operating costs and optimizing overall metal recoveries. XRT Ore Sorting is proposed for the coarser size fractions and Dense Media Separation (“DMS”) for treatment of the finer fractions so as to pull on the strengths of both technologies. The size split between the two technologies is unoptimized and the current results support the ability to potentially “ore sort” slightly coarser rocks than tested which would further increase the overall benefits of pre-concentration. Tin (Sn), although not included in the 132 million tonnes higher-grade starter pit area (MRE), is expected to potentially contribute to the enhanced values in the initial Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) with additional metallurgical testing and infill drilling.

Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX: ELO; OTCQX: ELRRF; FSE: P2QM) (“Eloro”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce commencement of a preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”) for the Iska Iska silver-tin polymetallic project in the Potosi Department of southwestern Bolivia. The PEA study will consider the inferred mineral resource estimate (“MRE”) of 560 million tonnes grading 13.8 g Ag/t, 0.73% Zn and 0.28% Pb in the Polymetallic (Ag-Zn-Pb) Domain and 110 million tonnes grading 0.12% Sn, 14.2 g Ag/t and 0.14% Pb in the Tin Domain (Sn-Ag-Pb). While the Polymetallic Domain and the Tin Domain do not overlap or share any resource blocks, for the purposes of the PEA the mineral resources within both domains will be combined. read more

Eloro Resources’ drill hole DSB-47 intersects 114g Ag eq/t (9.90g Ag/t, 0.12 g Au/t, 0.96% Zn, and 0.68% Pb) over 320.97m in the Santa Barbara High-Grade Zone, at the Iska Iska Silver-Tin Polymetallic Project, Potosi Department, Bolivia

These three holes expand the strike extent of the Santa Barbara High-Grade Zone to more than 1,100m significantly expanding the potential open pittable resource. The High-Grade zone is now 800m across and is open along strike to the south-southeast.

Eloro Resources’ drill hole DHK-27 intersects 202.43g Ag eq/t (69.80g Ag/t, 1.21% Zn, 0.49% Pb, and 0.12%Sn) over 325.48m including a higher-grade portion of 395.98 g Ag eq/t (182.02g Ag/t, 1.73% Zn, 0.97% Pb, 0.18% Cu and 0.19%Sn) over 109.60m in the High-Grade Zone, Santa Barbara Deposit at the Iska Iska Silver-Tin Polymetallic Project, Potosi Department, Bolivia

The silver grades in DHK-27 are the highest and most extensive yet intersected in the Santa Barbara deposit. 50% of this 860m long hole, drilled from Huayra Kasa due west at -45 degrees, returned reportable intersections averaging 172.09 g Ag eq/t. Holes DHK-26, DHK-28, DHK-29, DHK-30 and DSB-42, which returned multiple intersections, are additional holes collared in the Huayra Kasa area that tested the eastern margin of the High-Grade Zone at Santa Barbara. Highlights include: 222.51g Ag eq/t (28.44g Ag/t, 3.11% Zn and 0.26% Pb) over 53.90m and 99.76 g Ag eq/t (32.59g Ag/t, 0.11 g Au/t and 0.54% Zn) over 82.38m (DHK-26). 79.22g Ag eq/t (26.62g Ag/t, 0.35% Zn and 0.35% Pb) over 141.56m including 162.77g Ag eq/t (67.00g Ag/t, 0.55% Zn and 1.30% Pb) over 23.85m (DHK-28). 176.28g Ag eq/t (19.10g Ag/t, 2.29% Zn and 0.27% Pb) over 21.30m and 82.48g Ag eq/t (5.07g Ag/t, 0.21 g Au/t, 0.78% Zn and 0.18% Pb) over 69.18m (DHK-29). 130.69g Ag eq/t (7.19g Ag/t, 1.83% Zn and 0.48% Pb) over 42.17m and 129.98g Ag eq/t (19.71g Ag/t, 1.50% Zn and 0.57% Pb) over 72.31m including a higher-grade portion of 208.42g Ag eq/t (33.10g Ag/t, 2.37% Zn and 1.00% Pb) over 34.64m (DSB-42). Channel sampling of the Mina1 and Mina2 underground workings in the southern part of the property approximately 2km south-southeast of the Santa Barbara adit, returned significant values in vein breccias as follows: 153.94g Ag eq/t (55.03g Ag/t, 0.11 g Au/t, 0.7% Zn, 0.16% Pb and 0.08 % Sn) over 145.95m of the northwest trending drift including a higher-grade portion of 285.16g Ag eq/t (120.18g Ag/t, 0.25 g Au/t 1.23% Zn, 0.30% Pb and 0.13% Sn) over 56.34m in Mina 1. 382.79g Ag eq/t (15.67g Ag/t, 1.70 g Au/t, 2.20% Zn and 0.75% Pb) over 68.53m in an east-west trending crosscut in Mina 2. A second shorter crosscut on a secondary subparallel structure approximately 20m to the south returned 475.78g Ag eq/t (69.31g Ag/t, 0.26 g Au/t, 5.62% Zn and 1.92% Pb) over 26.67m in Mina 2. Drilling across the valley of the Iska Iska Caldera indicates that this area is underlain by a coarse-grained porphyritic dacitic intrusion that is well mineralized with Ag, Zn and Pb and is the likely source of the extensive epithermal mineralization in the Santa Barbara and Central Breccia areas. The porphyry, now named the Iska Iska Porphyry, is approximately 800m by 600m and is notable for the absence of tin mineralization despite the abundance of tin in the nearby area. The tin at Iska Iska is likely the product of an earlier higher temperature and deeper tin porphyry, which has been overprinted by the later higher-level porphyry-epithermal Ag-Zn-Pb mineralization related to the Iska Iska Porphyry. The definition drilling has more than doubled the volume of the High-Grade Zone defined by the >90 g Ag eq/t grade shell model to approximately 1,000m along strike, 800m wide and extending to a depth of 1,100m. This zone is open to the south, west and northwest as well as at depth. Eloro is working closely with Micon International to provide all data necessary for estimation of the inaugural mineral resource estimate targeted for the end of Q1 2023. Magnetic inverse modelling and limited deep drilling suggest that the major tin porphyry is likely below the Iska Iska Porphyry and to the south and southwest in the Porco and Mina Casiterita areas. The tin porphyry will be a major focus of exploration in 2023.
