BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil, Sept. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE -- Jupiter Gold Corporation (OTC: JUPGF) (“Jupiter Gold” or the “Company”) announced today that it has acquired a substantial volume of data pertaining to prior detailed geological drilling, trenching, and mineralogical and bulk sampling, among other studies, in one of its mineral rights for gold in Brazil. This data includes a detailed research report filed by the prior owner with the Brazilian mining authorities which reported 2 tons of gold (approximately 64,000 ounces) with an average of 1.54 g/t of gold in the area studied.
At the time of this historical report, gold was priced much lower than today’s $1,500/oz price, and therefore any cutoff for economic feasibility has significantly changed. As these historical studies were likely not performed under currently acceptable guidelines, Jupiter Gold will undertake its own studies for revalidation and project expansion.
Marc Fogassa, CEO of the Company, commented, “Our team is extremely excited about this project. As a young company, it puts us at a new level.”
The rocks of the project area are of Archean age and characterized as a metavolcano-sedimentary sequence of amphibolite facies consisting of meta-ultramafic and metamorphic rocks, mafic shales, metacherts, iron formations, calc-silicate rocks, marbles, schists and metapelitic gneisses and quartzites. This is a normal stacking of greenstone terrain having mafic-ultramafic, volcano-chemical and volcaniclastic/clastic domains. Gold mineralization in the form of quartz veins and boudins associated or not with carbonate, chlorite and sericite, hydrothermal alteration type, occurs within the area. There are also records of alluvial gold mining the area.
