VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 9, 2016) - San Marco Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMN) ("the Company" or "San Marco") announces that, during the period July 1, 2016 to October 31 2016, $642,250 was received by the Company from the exercise of 8,213,000 warrants.
San Marco's CEO, Bob Willis stated; "As a result of our stated business plan to aggressively pursue the multitude of target areas generated by the Globetrotters/San Marco partnership, we asked our San Marco warrant holders if they would be willing to exercise their warrants much earlier than their expiry. Results so far are a testament to the quality and belief by our shareholders that significant value will result from this request, while striving to preserve our reasonable share structure."
In addition to the continued exploration at the Company's 100% controlled Chunibas property, (please see news release dated Nov. 1, 2016), field exploration efforts continue to confirm significant targets being identified from field examination of the Globetrotters/SMN database.
Initial field evaluation of Target # 1068, acquired through the recent Libertad, indicates the presence of a porphyry copper system hosted by Laramide plutonic and volcanic rocks. Typical porphyry copper zoned alteration (propylitic, phyllic and potassic alteration) of a quartz diorite porphyry, hosts evidence of copper (chalcopyrite, chalcocite) and molybdenite mineralization. Detailed mapping, rock chip and stream sediment sampling are scheduled to commence next week.
As well, Company geologists will return to an apparent epithermal high sulphidation gold/silver target, where volcanic and volcanoclastic rocks exhibit advanced argillic alteration. Dacite breccias and pyroclastics show quartz/alunite alteration and vuggy silica areas where sampling will commence shortly.
