BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil, Dec. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE -- Jupiter Gold Corporation (OTC: JUPGF) (“Jupiter Gold” or the “Company”) announced today that the results of the geochemical sampling conducted in two shafts (70 ft. and 60 ft. deep, spaced 60 ft.) in its Alpha Project included a 16.2 g/t gold intersect within a 5.0 g/t gold zone over 4 meters. In terms of detection, 36 out of the 37 samples returned positive for gold. The analytical test used was fire assay (FAA505) performed by SGS-Geosol, a premier laboratory used by major mining companies in Brazil.
Jupiter Gold’s Alpha Project encompasses 28,167 acres east of Belo Horizonte, just outside of the Iron Quadrangle, a district known for both iron and gold mining. As described in a prior release, Jupiter Gold is in the process of revalidating Alpha Project’s 64,000 ounces of gold mineralization, as reported by a prior owner in detailed technical studies filed with the Brazilian mining authorities after extensive trenching and drilling.
Mr. Areli Nogueira, the Company’s senior geologist, commented, “Our initial geochemical studies, as reported today, were better than expected. Gold appears to be disseminated in a wide layer of saprolite, which may be easier to mine. Furthermore, it is likely that gold will also be identifiable in deeper rock, which would expand the total mineralization.”
Given these positive results, Jupiter Gold plans to advance on further studies that may lead to a technical report (NI 43-101 or equivalent format) for this property. In parallel, the Company has started the planning of the regulatory studies needed for an initial gold production license.
Jupiter Gold Corporation (OTC: JUPGF) owns 100% title to seven gold projects in development and exploratory stages aggregating 125,000 acres in Brazil. Its Alpha Project has a reported 64,000 ounces of gold mineralization from prior studies which the Company is in the process of revalidating. Brazil Minerals, Inc. (OTC: BMIX) owns 39% of the outstanding shares of Jupiter Gold. More information on Jupiter Gold is available at www.jupitergoldcorp.com. Follow it on Twitter: @JupiterGoldCorp
