Rosgeo’s work can provide the increase of zinc recourses in Zabaykalsky Krai for 250 thousand tons

Economically autonomous structural subdivision Chitageologorazvedka, JSC of Sibirskoye proizvodstvenno-geologicheskoye objedinenije, JSC (city of Krasnoyarsk, the company is a part of Rosgeo State Holding) is completing the exploration within Savva-Borzinsky ore cluster.

The area of exploration covers 138 km2 within Aleksandrovo-Zavodskoy, Priargun and Kalgan areas of Zabaykalsky Krai.

Here, the company performs the prospecting work for gold and polymetallic mineralization under the state contract concluded between Rosgeo and the Department for Subsoil Use in the Central Siberian District of Rosnedra in 2017. The project is to be implemented during 3 years and it is planned to complete it by the end of this year.

All field work will be completed in the third quarter, and the final geological report will be drafted in the fourth quarter.

In total, during the year of 2019, 20 linear km of geological traverse will be carried out, 10.5 linear km of specialized geophysical studies with IP-VES method will be conducted, 14, 982 m3 of mining works will be performed and 4, 650 of running meters will be drilled.

The mineralized zones with polymetallic mineralization have been discovered at the Yablochny site so far. The exposed thickness of stringer-porphyry mineralization, represented by a series of contiguous quartz and carbonate veins with galena and mock ore, reaches 1.5-3 m. The selected core samples from the ore intervals are being processed.

According to the data available, it is expected that there will be an increase of conventional zinc of P2 category by 250 thousand tons, with the content of conventional Zn - 6.58%, including Pb-2.77%, Zn-0.75% and Ag-63.2 g/t.
