Equinox Exploration Corp. Grab Samples 2.63% to 9.68% Copper from New Copper Manto Mineralization at Aura, Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- Equinox Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:EQX) (Equinox) announces that it continues to locate new copper manto mineralization during its on-going exploration program at its Aura copper project in the Atacama Desert Region of north central Chile. A total of 6 mantos have been identified to date. Equinox is reporting the new results along with results from sampling earlier this year that ranged from 0.88% to 4.40% copper.

The North manto is the best exposed, opened at a number of locations along 200 metres of strike. The North manto varied in width from 30 to 100 centimetres. It appears to be sub-parallel to the South manto and strikes at 230 degrees with vertical to steep southeast dips. Chrysocolla is common in all exposures. The four samples taken moving from south to north along the exposures returned: 3.03% Cu over 0.60 metres; 2.04% Cu over 0.30 metres; 3.06% Cu over 1.00 metre and 3.11% Cu over 0.60 metres.

The South manto was best exposed in one large open cut. It is 4 metres wide and strikes 230 degrees with a vertical dip. Chrysocolla is abundant throughout the face. A series of 4 samples were taken across the face in 1 metre intervals. They returned values of: 1.57% Cu, 1.45% Cu, 2.38% Cu and 0.88% Cu yielding a combined1.57% Cu over 4 metres.

There are three mantos in the western area, where exact relationships have yet to be worked out. MantoW1 and W2 look like they may actually be the same manto at two locations along strike, though the suspected trends did look different. West 1 was a rubble pile while West 2 was in place, though only the top was exposed. West 3 was sampled in two locations, one as a rubble pile and the other as partially exposed manto. Width and strike measurements were not attainable. A select grab sample was taken from each location: West 1 returned 2.24% Cu and West 2 returned 4.40% Cu with a considerable sulfide component. West 3 returned values of 8.89% Cu, 2.64% Cu and 2.63% Cu. Abundant chrysocolla was noted.

The newly discovered Central manto was traced by adits and pits over a horizontal distance and vertical distance both in excess of 100 metres. The manto ranges in width from 2 to 6 metres. A grab sample of copper oxide material from the adit dump returned a value of 9.68% Cu. A 2 metre chip sample from the northern side of the 6 metre manto exposed in a pit returned a value of 3.20% Cu. Once an access road has been established to the area, the manto will be opened up and copper oxide material will be stockpiled.

The Aura crew continues to locate and test new areas of copper mineralization with the aim of opening the occurrences up to assess their potential. EQX continues to stockpile this oxide copper material for shipment to the ENAMI processing facility in Copiapo, Chile.

Grab samples of the copper oxide mineralization were delivered to Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. in Santiago, Chile for the 7AR analysis package. Acme is an ISO 9001 certified lab.

IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
