Toronto, Ontario, September 16th , 2019 – Ubique Minerals Limited (“Ubique”)(CSE:UBQ) announces it has mobilized a diamond drill to further its exploration and definition of zinc deposits at Daniel’s Harbour, Newfoundland. The first drill holes are to be located on the optioned MinKap Resources Inc. (“KAP”) property to test areas with historic drill intersections of zinc mineralization. The drill will then be moved to Ubique’s property to drill further extensions of the P Zone zinc deposit.
Ubique’s Daniels Harbour Zinc Project – Plans for 2019 Diamond Drilling Program.
Ubique owns 109 claims located in the Daniel’s Harbour area in Newfoundland, Canada, covering 27 sq. kms, in two blocks and has another 42 claims covering 10 sq. kms. under option from MinKap Resources Inc. The Ubique claims cover three zones of zinc mineralization, namely P Zone, Cobo’s Pond and Tilt Pond. The P Zone is where Ubique completed most of its 2017 and 2018 drilling programs, the highlight of which was a true width intersection of 13.6% Zinc over 12.2 metres including 17.43% Zinc over 8.6m. More than 20 historic and recent drill holes in this target area have intersections with greater than 4% zinc over at least 2 metres true widths and demonstrate the zone extends for at least 150 metres. The KAP Option claims cover areas of the historic mining activity and research has identified five high priority drill target areas where historic drilling intersected mineralization, including a true width interval of 5.73m of 8.96% zinc in the 1386 zone. The first drill hole will be located in the 1386 Zone to attempt to duplicate the intersection. Subsequent drill holes will target the Nose Zone. The former drilling at each of these sites is considered as historic and not acceptable under the criteria defined by National Instrument 43-101 without demonstrated duplication and validation.
Ubique intends to then move the drill to its own claims to follow up on the 2017 and 2018 diamond drilling results which discovered the PE zone of high grade zinc mineralization with the objective of extending the length of the zinc mineralized zone in anticipation of estimating a resource.
The zinc mineralization intersected is a very pale coloured sphalerite, characteristic of a low-iron Mississippi-Valley-Type carbonate rock geological environment analogous to many large deposits in north America. Seven million tonnes, averaging 7.8% zinc, were mined from the former Daniel’s Harbour mine and processed on site to yield a very high grade concentrate for shipping from a nearby deep water port facilities to a custom zinc smelter.
