Zinc One Reports Remaining Drill Results from Mina Grande Sur, Bongará Zinc Mine Project, Peru

Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V: Z; OTC Markets: ZZZOF; Frankfurt: RH33 – “Zinc One” or the “Company”) http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298394  is pleased to announce the results from the last 27 drill holes of the Mina Grande Sur zone, Bongará Zinc Mine project located in north-central Peru.  These drill holes are located in the northern sector of Mina Grande Sur.  Holes identified as MGS18081 through 95 were drilled along the northern perimeter of mineralization delineating the northern extent of mineralization in the zone.  Noteworthy intercepts include 18.0 metres of 36.0% zinc from MGS18077 and 11.5 metres of 32.0% zinc from MGS18080.  Overall, 95 holes for a total of 2,328.4 metres have been drilled at Mina Grande Sur.

Jim Walchuck, President and CEO of Zinc One commented, “The Mina Grande Sur drill program delineated near-surface, zinc-oxide mineralization over a length of 350 metres in a north-south direction and as much as 200 metres in an east-west direction, open to the south and southwest.  Along with the zinc-oxide deposit discovered at Mina Chica, we expect the success of this drill program to be manifested by a contribution to the total project’s resource estimate, which we anticipate will be completed Q4 2018.”

Mina Grande Sur Additional Drill Results Highlights:

  • Results from 68 holes were reported previously (see news releases from March 29, May 7, May 29, and July 26, 2018).
  • Significant new intercepts include:
    • MGS18077 – 18.0 metres of 36.0% zinc, from 21.0 metres drill depth
      • True vertical thickness of 15.6 metres from true vertical depth of 18.2 metres
    • MCH18079 – 12.0 metres of 22.7% zinc, from surface
      • True vertical thickness of 9.2 metres
    • MGS18080 – 11.5 metres of 32.0% zinc, from 43.5 metres drill depth
      • True vertical thickness of 8.8 metres from true vertical depth of 33.3 metres
    • Mineralization at Mina Grande Sur includes zinc oxides, carbonates and silicates hosted by soils, highly-weathered carbonates, and fine- to coarse-grained dolomites, most of which are brecciated.

Mina Grande Sur is one of three known zones of high-grade, near-surface zinc-oxide mineralization along a 1.4 kilometre mineralized trend that was tested by this drill program., which consisted of 264 holes for 7,930.6 metres. All drill results from Bongarita, Mina Chica, and Mina Grande Sur have now been reported with results from Mina Grande Centro and Mina Grande Norte to be released in the coming weeks.

Geology and Discussion of Results

The zinc mineralization at the Bongará Zinc Mine project is classified as a Mississippi Valley-type deposit and is mostly hosted by strongly dolomitized brecciated limestones that are stratabound.  The mineralization can also occur as tabular bodies with irregular boundaries, which is a characteristic of that mineralization encountered along the periphery of breccias, especially at Mina Chica.  Hydrozincite (zinc oxide mineral), smithsonite (zinc carbonate mineral), hemimorphite (zinc silicate mineral), and a zinc-aluminum-iron silicate are the primary zinc minerals that are hosted by soils, dolomitized breccias, heavily-weathered fractured and vuggy dolomitized limestones, and fine- to coarse-grained dolomitized limestones. 

The results from drill holes MGS18069 through MGS18095 at Mina Grande Sur can be found below in Table 1.

Sampling and Analytical Protocols

Zinc One follows a systematic and rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program overseen by Dr. Bill Williams, COO and Director of Zinc One.

The sample from each core run is placed in a 60-centimetre long, plastic core box that has five columns.   Core recovery, rock quality designation (“RQD”), and geologic features are logged and sample intervals, which are generally <2 metres, are chosen. Each core box is photographed and then sampled with a spatula, if soil and heavily-weathered rock, or cut with a core saw, 50% of which is placed in a sample bag and stored on site in a secure location. The Company independently inserts certified control standards, blanks, and duplicates, all of which comprise at least 20% of the sample batch, to monitor sample preparation and analytical quality.  The samples are stored in a secure area until such time they are shipped to the CERTIMIN laboratory in Lima (ISO 9001 Certified) for preparation and assay. At the laboratory, samples are dried, crushed, pulverized and then a four-acid digestion is applied.  This is followed by the ICP-AES analytical technique for 33 elements, including lead.  The same method is used to assay zinc for values up to 20%.  If zinc values exceed 20%, it is then analyzed using a titration method.  The laboratory also inserts blanks and standards as well as including duplicate analyses.

About Zinc One Resources Inc.

Zinc One is focused on the exploration and development of prospective and advanced zinc projects in mining-friendly jurisdictions.  Zinc One’s key assets are the Bongará Zinc Mine Project and the Charlotte Bongará Zinc Project in north-central Peru.  The Bongará Zinc Mine Project was in production from 2007 to 2008 but was closed due to the global financial crisis and concurrent decrease in the zinc price. Past production included >20% zinc grades and recoveries over 90% from surface and near-surface zinc-oxide mineralization. High-grade, zinc-oxide mineralization is known to outcrop between the mined area and the Charlotte Bongará Project, which is nearly six kilometres to the NNW and where past drilling intercepted various near-surface zones with high-grade zinc.  Zinc One is managed by a proven team of geologists and engineers who have previously constructed and operated successful mining operations.

Panoro Announces the Approval of the Environmental Impact Assessment Expansion at Cotabambas Project, Peru

Panoro Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: PML, Lima: PML, Frankfurt: PZM) (“Panoro”, the “Company”- http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298438) Panoro is pleased to report the approval of the expansion of the Semi-detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (EIAsd) for the Cotabambas Project in Peru.  This is the second expansion approved to the original EIAsd and includes the area of the Chaupec Skarn target zone.

“The approval of the expansion of the EIAsd allows Panoro to extend its exploration drilling program into the highly prospective areas of Cluster 2.  Cluster 2 has been the subject of extensive recent mapping, sampling and geophysical survey studies by Panoro.  These studies have identified the occurrence of skarn Cu-Au-Ag mineralization over extensive areas.  Panoro’s exploration plans for Cluster 2 will target the addition of high grade near surface skarn mineralization to the current mine plan to further enhance the economics of the project.  The scale of the resource potential in Cluster 2 may be significant with the potential to increase the scale of the project identified in the current PEA”, stated Luquman Shaheen, President & CEO.

The Ministry of Energy and Mines of Peru approved the second modification of the EIAsd of the Cotabambas project expanding the approved area for exploration from 1,401 hectares to 2,923 hectares.  The original approved area permitted 311 drilling platforms in the area of the Ccalla, Azulccaca, Guaclle, Petra-David and María José targets in Cluster 1.  The expanded area, of 1,522 hectares located to the west of the original area, as shown on the linked plan, permits an additional 295 drilling platforms to explore the geologic targets of the Zones I, II and III of the Chaupec Skarn target zone in Cluster 2.

The first phase of the 2018 drilling campaign was completed in Cluster 1 in April with a total of 2,172 meters of drilling. The second phase is planned to start soon in the Cluster 2, into the Chaupec Skarn Target.

Auryn Commences Drilling at Homestake Ridge Gold Project and Provides Update on Drilling Progress at Committee Bay

Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX: AUG, NYSE AMERICAN: AUG, “Auryn” or the “Company” – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298204) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at its 100% owned Homestake Ridge project located in northwestern British Columbia. The program, which began on August 7th, 2018, consists of approximately 3,000 meters of core drilling to target gold mineralization along the high-grade South Reef deposit.

In the 2017 drill program, Auryn intercepted zones of high-grade gold mineralization at South Reef’s down plunge. These intercepts included 30 meters of 2.00 g/t Au (including 4m @ 6.03g/t Au & 2m @ 11.80 g/t Au) and 10 meters of 4.12 g/t Au (including 2m @ 18.01 g/t Au) (see Auryn’s press release dated December 12, 2017 for full results).

This year’s program aims to expand the known resource at South Reef by targeting the down plunge extension along the bottom of a graben, which defines the mineralized corridor (Figure 1).  The drill program will test 500 meters of strike extension along a one-kilometer gold-in-soils anomaly targeting multiple mineralized structures within the graben (Figure 2).

A Message from Michael Henrichsen, COO & Chief Geologist:

“The high-grade resource at the Homestake Ridge project has an exceptional opportunity for expansion along the South Reef mineralized corridor.  Geological modeling based on the 2017 drill campaign has identified a well-defined graben system that is open to the northwest and will be targeted with 6 – 8 drill holes.”

Committee Bay Update:

  • Auryn has drilled a total of 7200 meters in the 10,000 meter program
  • 3700 meters of diamond drilling to follow-up on the Aiviq discovery along a 1.2 kilometer strike length
  • 3500 meters of RAB drilling on high-resolution gold-in-till targets at Kalulik, Aarluk, Ridge, and Castle
  • Expected completion of the program is August 25th
  • Results anticipated between mid-September and the end of October

A Message from Ivan Bebek, Executive Chairman & Director:

“The fourth quarter of 2018 will be exciting for Auryn shareholders as we are drilling two fully-funded opportunities for significant gold discoveries in Canada. We have also made great progress in Peru over the summer at our Sombrero project, where we recently identified several drill targets.  Updates can be expected in the coming weeks.

With respect to our recently announced funding, we appreciate the support from existing shareholders and welcome new shareholders. We plan to remain judicious with our treasury in these less-than-optimal market conditions.”

Michael Henrichsen, P.Geo, COO of Auryn, is the Qualified Person who assumes responsibility for the technical disclosures in this press release.

Acquisition of new clients

Ecovis Costa Rica has many successful clients. The fact that Ecovis is an international firm has helped us with the acquisition of one of our clients, PTI.


PTI was founded in 2013. Its mission was to own and operate high quality wireless infrastructure sites in stable markets experiencing strong wireless usage growth around the world. PTI is currently focused on expansion of infrastructure throughout Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States.


PTI initially contracted us to convert the financial statements of their company in Colombia from IFRS to US GAAP. They appreciated Ecovis’ work ethic and consequently appointed us to handle their tax services in Costa Rica. In the meantime the company’s CEO and tax officer has confirmed that he intends to sign a contract with us for services in all their other locations.

Ecovis Costa Rica offers them a dedicated service supervised by its accounting and tax partner. Our client was impressed with Ecovis’ prompt responses to their requests. The PTI account was formerly handled by a renowned multinational professional services firm. Having compared our services with theirs, our client decided to award Ecovis with their account.


Ecovis is handling PTI’s tax matters in Costa Rica, and will be expanding its range of services to PTI both in Costa Rica and to all their other locations.

The Company operates three silver-gold mines in Mexico, the Guanaceví mine in Durango state, and the Bolañitos and El Cubo mines in Guanajuato state. Endeavour is currently commissioning its fourth mine, El Compas, in Zacatecas state and advancing the Terronera mine project in Jalisco state to a development decision. 

The Company reports a net loss of $5.7 million in the Second Quarter, 2018 compared to $16 thousand loss in the Second Quarter, 2017, primarily due to higher depreciation and depletion charges and foreign exchange loss.

  • Reported positive metallurgy and positive drill results from a step-out drill program at the Parral exploration property
  • Appointed VP, New Projects, Manuel Echevarria to oversee technical services and development projects
  • EBITDA, mine operating cash flow, cash costs and all-in sustaining costs are non-IFRS measures. Please refer to the definitions in the Company’s Management Discussion & Analysis.

Bradford Cooke, Endeavour CEO, commented, “Our financial performance in Q2, 2018 was tempered by higher depreciation and depletion charges primarily at Guanacevi, higher foreign exchange losses related to depreciation of the Mexican peso, higher current taxes primarily at Bolanitos and El Cubo and increased expenditures advancing Terronera and exploring Parral. 

“El Cubo continues to out-perform plan, delivering record grades and providing strong cash flow for the Company. Bolanitos is running a bit behind plan but continues to generate strong cash flow and should improve in Q3.  Guanacevi continues to be challenging, but the focus on higher development in Q2 is returning higher throughput in July. El Compas is expected to achieve commercial production in Q3 and start generating positive cash flow for the Company in the second half of this year.”

Financial Results

Revenue in the Second Quarter, 2018 totaled $38.8 million (2017 – $32.7 million) on sales of 1,258,617 silver ounces and 13,800 gold ounces at realized prices of $16.76 and $1,281 per ounce respectively, compared to sales of 988,821 silver ounces and 12,294 gold ounces at realized prices of $17.16 and $1,270 per ounce respectively in Q2, 2017.

After cost of sales of $34.2 million (2017 – $27.2 million), mine operating earnings amounted to $4.6 million (2017 – $5.4 million) from mining and milling operations in Mexico. The 26% increase in cost of sales was primarily due to increased depreciation and depletion. Excluding depreciation and depletion of $7.9 million (2017 – $3.3 million), share-based payments recovery of $0.1 million and an inventory write down of $2.5 million, mine operating cash flow before taxes was $14.9 million (2017 – $8.8 million) in Q2, 2018.

Net losses amount to $5.7 million (2017 –$16 thousand) after depreciation and depletion, exploration, general and administrative expenses and foreign exchange.  

Direct production costs per tonne in Q2, 2018 increased 3% compared with Q2, 2017.  The higher production costs per tonne were driven mainly by lower Guanaceví mine output due to increased mine development and the costs related to implementing a productivity optimization program.  The higher costs at Guanaceví were offset by increased production due to higher throughput and grades at El Cubo.

The out-performance of El Cubo resulted in 9% lower consolidated cash costs per oz, net of by-product credits (a non-IFRS measure and a standard of the Silver Institute).  Similarly, all-in sustaining costs (also a non-IFRS measure) decreased 16% to $17.28 per oz in Q2, 2018 due to lower operating costs per ounce and lower capital expenditures in Q2, 2018 compared to Q2, 2017, offset by higher general and administration charges at the corporate level.

QIAGEN careHPV™-Test erhält WHO-Präqualifizierung für das Gebärmutterhals-Screening

QIAGEN N.V. (NYSE: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) gab heute die Aufnahme des careHPV™-Tests, eines der wenigen molekularen Diagnostikverfahren für das Screening von Frauen auf Hochrisikotypen des humanen Papillomavirus (HPV) in ressourcenarmen Regionen, in die Liste der präqualifizierten In-Vitro-Diagnostika (IVD) der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) bekannt. HPV ist die Hauptursache für Gebärmutterhalskrebs bei Frauen. Das Screening auf die Virusinfektion ist deshalb für die Prävention und frühzeitige Behandlung dieser tödlichen Krebserkrankung unerlässlich. Der careHPV-Test wurde 2010 weltweit eingeführt und hat sich in zahlreichen Pilotstudien zur Erkennung von präkanzerösen Zellveränderungen als empfindlichere Alternative zu zytologischen und visuellen Untersuchungsmethoden erwiesen. Es wird erwartet, dass sich die Verfügbarkeit dieses wichtigen Diagnosewerkzeugs in Ländern, die sich bei Kaufentscheidungen auf die Liste der WHO verlassen, durch die evidenzbasierte Aufnahme seitens der globalen Organisation erhöht. Die WHO-Präqualifizierung wird in Regionen mit vielen Fällen von Gebärmutterhalskrebs einen weitaus umfassenderen Zugang zur HPV-DNA-Diagnostik ermöglichen.


„Mit der IVD-Präqualifizierung verleiht die WHO unserem innovativen careHPV-Test ein ‚Gütesiegel‘, das Behörden zur Einführung von effizienten, hochpräzisen HPV-Screenings zur Prävention von Gebärmutterhalskrebs in Regionen mit eingeschränkter Gesundheitsinfrastruktur ermutigen wird“, erklärt Thierry Bernard, Senior Vice President und Leiter des Geschäftsbereichs Molekulare Diagnostik bei QIAGEN. „In China wird careHPV regelmäßig in ländlichen oder ressourcenarmen Regionen eingesetzt. In Entwicklungsländern arbeitet QIAGEN mit NGOs und Gesundheitsministerien zusammen. Wir versprechen uns von der WHO-Präqualifizierung eine zunehmende Verbreitung dieses wichtigen Instruments für die Gesundheit der Frau.“


Der schnelle, portable und benutzerfreundliche careHPV-Test von QIAGEN vereint die Leistungsfähigkeit fortschrittlicher molekularer Technologien mit innovativem Design für Regionen, in denen Elektrizität, fließendes Wasser und kontrollierte Laborumgebungen keine Selbstverständlichkeit sind. Das System verfügt zum Beispiel über farbcodierte, leicht verständliche Benutzeroberflächen und versiegelte Reagenzien. Zudem ist der Test in Bezug auf Temperaturschwankungen beständig, die in ländlichen Krankenhäusern mit einer eingeschränkten Strom- oder Wasserversorgung und unzureichenden Kühlmöglichkeiten auftreten, und liefert schnellere Ergebnisse als traditionelle, laborgestützte Methoden. Der careHPV-Test wurde in Zusammenarbeit mit der international tätigen, gemeinnützigen Organisation PATH entwickelt und wird von QIAGEN in Shenzhen, China, hergestellt.


„Qualitativ hochwertige molekulare HPV-Tests mit einfacher Applikation sind essentiell für die Expansion von Präventionsstrategien bei Gebärmutterhalskrebs in ressourcenarmen Ländern. Die Aufnahme in die Liste der Weltgesundheitsorganisation ist eine wichtige Bestätigung für den molekularen careHPV-Test, und macht es Ländern möglich die beste und passendste Lösung für ihre Programme zu wählen. Um bessere Abdeckung für Frauen zu schaffen und einen Unterschied in der Gebärmutterhalskrebs-Prävention zu machen, muss es bezahlbare und kosteneffiziente Strategien geben, vielleicht sogar bis hin zum Selbsttest,“ so Dr. Silvia de Sanjosé, Leiterin des Scale-Up Projekts bei PATH, einer US-amerikanischen Organisation, die auf die Entwicklung und Verbreitung innovativer Lösungen für die öffentliche Gesundheit in Entwicklungsländern spezialisiert ist.


Der careHPV-Test für ressourcenarme Regionen ist eine hervorragende Ergänzung des digenen HC2-HPV-Tests von QIAGEN, bei dem es sich um den weltweit am häufigsten validierten diagnostischen Test mit der höchsten Sensitivität für den Nachweis von Hochrisikotypen des HPV handelt. Der digene HC2-HPV-Test gilt als der „Goldstandard“ für das HPV-Screening und ist in entwickelten Ländern und großen Städten in Schwellenländern weit verbreitet.


Gebärmutterhalskrebs ist laut der jüngsten verfügbaren globalen Jahresstatistik der WHO mit 528.000 neuen Fällen und 266.000 Todesfällen im Jahr 2012 weltweit die vierthäufigste Krebsart bei Frauen. Schätzungsweise 80 % der neuen Fälle und Todesfälle entfallen auf Entwicklungsländer, in denen das Bewusstsein für die Erkrankung gering und der Zugang zu präventiven Tests und medizinischer Behandlung stark eingeschränkt ist. In vielen ressourcenarmen Regionen hat Gebärmutterhalskrebs Brustkrebs als die häufigste tödliche Krebserkrankung bei Frauen bereits abgelöst.

Forward-Looking Statement

Einige der Angaben in dieser Pressemitteilung können im Sinne von Section 27A des U.S. Securities Act (US-Wertpapiergesetz) von 1933 in ergänzter Fassung und Section 21E des U.S. Securities Exchange Act (US-Börsengesetz) von 1934 in ergänzter Fassung als zukunftsgerichtete Aussagen („forward-looking statements") gelten. Soweit in dieser Meldung zukunftsgerichtete Aussagen über QIAGENs Produkte, Markteinführungen, regulatorische Einreichungen, Kollaborationen, Märkte, Strategie, Steuern und operative Ergebnisse gemacht werden, einschließlich aber nicht begrenzt auf die zu erwartenden Ergebnisse für den bereinigten Nettoumsatz und den bereinigten verwässerten Gewinn je Aktie,  geschieht  dies  auf  der  Basis  derzeitiger  Erwartungen  und  Annahmen, die mit vielfältigen Unsicherheiten und Risiken verbunden sind. Dazu zählen unter anderem: Risiken im Zusammenhang mit Wachstumsmanagement und internationalen Geschäftsaktivitäten (einschließlich Auswirkungen von Währungsschwankungen und der Abhängigkeit von regulatorischen sowie Logistikprozessen); Schwankungen der Betriebsergebnisse und ihre Verteilung auf unsere Kundengruppen; die Entwicklung der Märkte für unsere Produkte an Kunden in der Akademischen Forschung, Pharma, Angewandte Testverfahren und Molekulare Diagnostik; Veränderung unserer Beziehungen zu Kunden, Lieferanten und strategischen Partnern, das Wettbewerbsumfeld, schneller oder unerwarteter technologischer Wandel, Schwankungen in der Nachfrage nach QIAGEN-Produkten (einschließlich allgemeiner wirtschaftlicher Entwicklungen, Höhe und Verfügbarkeit der Budgets unserer Kunden und sonstiger Faktoren), die Möglichkeit, die regulatorische Zulassung für unsere Produkte zu erhalten, Schwierigkeiten bei der Anpassung von QIAGENs Produkten an integrierte Lösungen und die Herstellung solcher Produkte, die Fähigkeit des Unternehmens, neue Produktideen zu entwickeln, umzusetzen und sich von den Produkten der Wettbewerber abzuheben sowie vor dem Wettbewerb zu schützen, Marktakzeptanz neuer Produkte und die Integration akquirierter Geschäfte und Technologien; und andere Faktoren, angesprochen unter „Risikofaktoren“ in Absatz 3 des aktuellen Annual Report Form 20-F. Weitere Informationen finden Sie in Berichten, die QIAGEN bei der U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (US-Börsenaufsichtsbehörde) eingereicht hat.
