Viti – Metal Creek Porphyry Target
The Viti project is situated in south-eastern Kosovo and encompasses an interpreted circular intrusive, indicated by regional airborne magnetic data. There is evidence of intense alteration typically associated with porphyry systems, with several copper occurrences and stream sample anomalies in proximity to, and within the project area.
Intense hydrothermal alteration typically associated with porphyry systems has been identified and mapped together with the presence of several gossans, hydrothermal breccia zones and iron stockworks along a 3 km long zone associated with elevated Au, Cu and As from rock-chip grab samples. Two diamond drill holes for a total of 439m were sunk to test the alteration type and gossans in in 2018.
The drill holes intersected multiple highly altered trachyte dykes with associated Cu and Au mineralisation. Mineralised intersections included 1m @ 0.5 g/t Au and 10m @ 0.12 g/t Au. Whilst not economic intersections, the drill results are highly significant as they provide considerable encouragement that the target represents the upper part of a potential Cu-Au porphyry system.
Future work will focus on copper-gold target delineation using a combination of detailed magnetic and DC-IP surveys, and with new targets drilling should follow.
