Oribella represents a replacement or fracture controlled epithermal gold system superposed on a basalt “walk rock” Cu-Au porphyry and intrusive related breccia. It is within a metal rich part of the Middle Cauca Belt metallogenic province that extends for 120km. Oribella is centered between Continental Gold’s Buritica Project and Anglo Ashanti Nuevo Chaquiro (Quebradona) Project and directly adjoins Orosur Mining’s Anza Project. These third party projects are used for geographic reference and setting and not to imply similar results will be seen on Oribella.
Miranda exploration includes mapping, channel sampling, hand trenching, and soil sampling. Miranda soil sampling shows robust gold and copper anomalies that are spatially offset to each other and also an inferred epithermal zonation pattern in trace elements in relation to gold. The gold anomaly is approximately 500m by 250m and open in two directions. Limited hand trenching within the soil anomaly shows 11m @ 1.1 g Au/t in the subsurface. This mineralization extends to the limit of the trench. Combined Cu and Au values define an anomaly 600meters wide, centered on andesite porphyry stock and related breccia bodies.
Miranda recently expanded the Oribella Project with new applications, and is currently looking for a joint venture partner.
