Reference information

Comments Kiseljak prospect in Tulare porphyry cluster, within Lece volcanic complex. Active exploration project (Dunav Resources Ltd., 2014). Hosted in andesitic volcanics and at least two phases of diorite porphyry. Exposed over 800 by 300 m area; locally to 450 m depth. Stockwork quartz-pyrite-chalcopyrite veins, small veinlets and disseminations. Historical Soviet-C2 resource (non-compliant with current standards) reported as 155 Mt at 0.27 percent copper, 0.35 g/t gold, 1 g/t Ag, and 23 ppm Mo. Mineralization associated with potassic alteration; phyllic alteration along a N-S zone S of the porphyry. Surface exposure over a 300 by 800 m area; vertical extent at least 450 m. Proof of concept drilling, soil sampling, ground mag. Argillic alteration and silicification.
