VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jul 10, 2013) - Entourage Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EMT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that exploration is underway at the La Liga silver project. Work will focus on high-grade silver plus lead-zinc mineralization at the Red Devil and Galactose zones and will consist of detailed geologic mapping, prospecting, and mechanical trenching. Approximately 1,500 meters of trenching is planned.
Previous work on the property identified multiple structurally controlled, epigenetic silver-rich prospects and coincident polymetallic soil anomalies over a four kilometer trend.
High-grade grab samples of silver, lead, and zinc mineralization in outcrop at Red Devil (up to 877 g/t silver and 9.58% lead) and Galactose zones (up to 216 g/t silver, 9.94% lead, and 8.22% zinc)
Two, kilometer-scale, silver in soil anomalies (up to 29.3 g/t silver in soils)
Large land position with limited modern exploration
The Galactose and Red Devil Zones occur at the northwestern and southeastern limits of a 1600m x 500m zone of strongly anomalous silver and lead in soils, and consists of disseminated to massive sulfide mineralization associated with strongly altered and fractured clastic sediments, chert, and calc-silicate skarns.
Entourage has an option to earn a 100% interest in the La Liga Property which is located approximately 70km north of the town of Faro, and consists of 2,965 quartz mining claims covering 59,799 hectares over four blocks. The properties adjoin Silver Range Resources Ltd.'s flagship project, which announced a maiden inferred resource estimate of 38.7 million ounces of silver, 675 million pounds of zinc, 228 million pounds of lead, and 131 million pounds of copper at the Keg Deposit in late 2012 (see Silver Range news release dated Nov. 20, 2012).
All rock grab, chip, and trench samples for the 2013 program will be submitted to Acme Analytical Laboratories for analysis. A sample quality control/assurance program utilizing standards and blanks, as well as third-party laboratory checks is also in place.
