African Queen Mines (TSX-V: AQ), the junior gold and diamond exploration company focused on Botswana, Ghana, Namibia and Mozambique, released the results of seven chip samples taken independently by PAC Geological Consulting, Inc (“PAC”).
PAC is preparing a technical report on the King Solomon, Tete Province, Mozambique project for African Queen Mines. The seven samples collected from the project appeared to confirm the prospectivity of the project’s three main zones, returning gold values as high as 41 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, copper values as high as 6%, zinc values as high as 12% and “strong” silver credits.
“The tabulation of PAC's samples provides verification of the high gold, copper and zinc grades as well as silver credits previously obtained and reported by the Company's exploration team at the King Solomon Project,” African Queen stated.
African Queen is targeting the Mankombiti, Eiland and Kazito areas after Phase I exploration results highlighted “strong geophysical characteristics”. Phase 2 will include drilling, which is expected “to commence as soon as practible”.
The King Solomon Project is adjacent to permits controlled by Manica Minerals and African Eagle Resources (AIM: AFE).
