VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2021 / Tinka Resources Limited (“Tinka” or the “Company“) (TSXV:TK)(BVL:TK)(OTCQB:TKRFF) is pleased to announce high-grade gold and copper trench results from Silvia NW, one of several prospective targets at the Company’s 100%-owned Silvia Project located 30 km from the Company’s flagship Ayawilca zinc-silver project. Tinka owns 460 km2 of contiguous mining concessions in the prolific mining region of central Peru – Figure 1.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • New trench results: 46 metres at 1.9 g/t gold & 0.8% copper (2.2% CuEQ or 2.9 g/t AuEQ), including
    • 6 metres at 12.8 g/t gold & 2.7% copper (12.3% CuEQ or 16.4 g/t AuEQ), including
    • 2 metres at 22.5 g/t gold & 2.5% copper (19.4% CuEQ or 25.8 g/t AuEQ);
  • Mineralization associated with chalcopyrite-bearing skarn, open in all directions beneath shallow scree cover;
  • Strike length of the skarn now extended to 550 m (N-S), up to 100 m wide (E-W);
  • Gold-copper mineralization is hosted by garnet-magnetite skarn associated with dikes of quartz feldspar porphyry (QFP) intruding limestone – there is a strong positive correlation between copper and gold;
  • 550 m x 100 m area at Area A –
    • Average grade of all 196 rock samples: 0.5% copper & 0.6 g/t gold (1.0 % CuEQ* or 1.3 g/t AuEQ);
    • Copper ranges between 0.01% to 12.3% Cu, and gold ranges between 0.01 g/t to 22.5 g/t Au;
    • Rock samples are representative, non-selective, continuous trench or rock chip samples (each 1-2m in width) of various rock types including skarn, QFP and limestone;
  • Exploration is continuing at Areas A and B along the 3 km prospective trend at Silvia NW – Figure 2.

* Copper Equivalent (CuEQ) is calculated assuming 100% recovery of copper and gold using a Gold Conversion Factor of 0.751, calculated from a nominal copper price of US$3.30/lb and a gold price of US$1,700/oz. Gold Equivalent (AuEQ) is calculated assuming 100% recovery of copper and gold using a Copper Conversion Factor of 1.33.

Dr. Graham Carman, Tinka’s President and CEO, stated: “The new trench sampling results from Silvia NW highlight the exciting potential of the high-grade gold and copper skarn discovery at Sylvia NW, first reported in our news release on October 7, 2021. These latest results are some of the highest gold-copper grades in outcrop from a grassroots project in Peru reported in recent times. The Silvia NW area has not been previously drilled or systematically explored before.”

“The surface footprint of the high-grade copper-gold skarn has been extended a further 150 metres to the south, now covering an overall strike length of 550 metres. We believe the mineralization at Area A could extend over a larger area under shallow cover. Further trenching and soil sampling is planned to confirm this.”

“The Silvia copper-gold project is a great addition to our exploration portfolio in central Peru, and provides excellent synergies with our flagship Ayawilca zinc-silver project which lies immediately adjacent. At Ayawilca, we recently announced a PEA for the Zinc Zone deposit, which highlights the potential for Ayawilca to become a Top-10 global zinc producer. The project has strong economics as well as significant upside for further expansion and optimization (PEA news release dated October 14, 2021). We plan to continue to advance Ayawilca into 2022, while at the same time carry on with aggressive exploration programs over the coming weeks at our gold-copper skarn zone at Silvia and advancing permitting for an eventual drill program.”

Geology and Sampling Results at Silvia NW

Tinka’s exploration activities have been focused on the mapping and sampling of copper-gold skarn at Area A (Figure 2), which exposes the deepest portion of the exposed skarn system along the 3 km trend at Silvia NW. Skarns are hosted either by limestone (“exoskarn”) or in QFP intrusions (“endoskarn”) and consist of green garnet, magnetite, diopside, chlorite accompanied by sulphides consisting mostly of chalcopyrite and pyrite.

Cretaceous-age Jumasha Formation is the host of the copper-gold mineralization. Jumasha Formation is a thick (> 2km) sequence of platform limestones forming a major part of the fold and thrust belt in central Peru, and is host to several large skarn deposits (including Antamina). Quartz feldspar porphyry (QFP) intrusive dikes are common, and orientated either northeast-southwest or north-south.

Figure 4 shows the location of the high-grade copper-gold trench sample location (6 m @ 12.8 g/t Au and 2.7% Cu).

Copper in the skarn occurs predominantly as chalcopyrite, with minor chalcocite and covellite (and copper oxides). At Area A, skarn occurs over an apparently continuous area of approximately 550 metres x 100 metres (Figure 3). There is widespread scree cover in-between outcrops of skarn. Tinka geologists believes that the skarn mineralization could continue over a larger area underneath the scree.

Table 1 highlights the new copper-gold trench sampling results. Table 2 summarizes all surface rock samples by type.

Notes on sampling and assaying

Trenches were dug up to a depth of 1 metre, where possible, across areas of outcrop (partially weathered) to test the grade of skarn and adjacent limestones and intrusions. Trench samples are continuous samples collected with hammer and chisel over 1 to 2 metre intervals. In areas of sporadic outcrop, samples are taken as semi-continuous rock chips. Tinka believes that the samples are representative of the outcrop and non-selective. Samples were bagged and labelled in the field. Samples were sent to Certimin laboratory in Lima where samples were dried, crushed to 90% passing 2mm, then 1 kg pulverized to 85% passing 75 microns. Gold was analysed by fire assay on 30 g (method G0108) and multi-element analysis by ICP using multi-acid digestion (method G0176). Gold assays above 10 g/t Au were re-assayed by a high grade fire assay method and a gravimetric finish (method G0014). Copper assays over 1% Cu were re-assayed by atomic absorption (method G0039). Standards and blanks were not inserted by Tinka but were inserted at the laboratory.

Lundin Mining Announces TSX Approval for a Normal Course Issuer Bid

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2021 /CNW/ – (TSX: LUN) (Nasdaq Stockholm: LUMI) Lundin Mining Corporation (“Lundin Mining” or the “Company”) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has accepted the notice of Lundin Mining’s intention to renew its normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”).

The Company intends to continue to utilize the NCIB at its discretion to make opportunistic purchases to create shareholder value and manage the number of outstanding common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”).

This approval allows the Company to purchase up to 63,762,574 Common Shares, representing 10% of the 735,122,870 issued and outstanding Common Shares as of November 30, 2021, minus those Common Shares beneficially owned, or over which control or direction is exercised by the Company, the senior officers and directors of the Company and every shareholder who owns or exercises control or direction over more than 10% of the outstanding Common Shares, over a period of twelve months commencing on December 9, 2021. The NCIB will expire no later than December 8, 2022.

All purchases made pursuant to the NCIB will be made through the facilities of the TSX or other alternative Canadian trading systems. In accordance with TSX rules, any daily purchases (other than pursuant to a block purchase exemption) on the TSX under the NCIB are limited to a maximum of 565,398 Common Shares, which represents 25% of the average daily trading volume of 2,261,595 Common Shares on the TSX for the six months ended November 30, 2021. The price that Lundin Mining will pay for Common Shares in open market transactions will be the market price at the time of purchase.

In connection with the NCIB renewal, Lundin Mining entered into an automatic repurchase plan with its designated broker to allow for the repurchase of Common Shares at times when the Company ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise (any such period being an “Operating Period”). Before entering an Operating Period, the Company may, but is not required to, instruct the designated broker to make purchases under the NCIB in accordance with the terms of the plan. Purchases made pursuant to the plan, if any, will be made by the Company’s designated broker based upon the parameters prescribed by the TSX, applicable Canadian securities laws and the terms of the written agreement entered between the Company and its designated broker. Outside of these Operating Periods, Common Shares will be purchasable by Lundin Mining at its discretion under its NCIB.

The automatic repurchase plan will commence on the effective date of the NCIB and will terminate on the earliest of the date on which: (i) the purchase limit under the NCIB has been reached; (ii) the NCIB expires; and (iii) the Company terminates the automatic repurchase plan in accordance with its terms. The automatic repurchase plan constitutes an “automatic plan” for purposes of applicable Canadian securities legislation and the agreement governing the plan has been pre-cleared by the TSX.

The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased and the timing of such purchases will be determined by the Company. Decisions regarding purchases will be based on market conditions, share price, best use of available cash, and other factors. Any Common Shares that are purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled.

Under the Company’s current NCIB that commenced on December 9, 2020 and expires on December 8, 2021, the Company previously sought and received approval from the TSX to purchase up to 63,682,170 Common Shares. As of November 30, 2021, the Company has purchased 4,323,100 Common Shares under its current NCIB through open market transactions at a weighted average price of approximately $11.25 per Common Share.
