rgentex commences additional drilling at Pinguino property, Argentina
TORONTO, Nov 30, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Argentex Mining Corporation (OTCBB: AGXM) is pleased to announce the commencement of additional drilling at its polymetallic Pinguino property in Santa Cruz province, Argentina. The program is proposed to include a minimum of 3,000 meters (9,842 feet) of HQ diamond drilling. The initial focus is on further testing of a chargeability anomaly containing two widely spaced drill intersections that returned high base metal and indium values in drilling earlier this year. This drill phase is being conducted as part of the company's ongoing exploration program at Pinguino.
"This new drilling marks the beginning of the first drill-definition testing of significant geophysical targets at Pinguino," said Ken Hicks, President of Argentex. "With the success from our previous drilling, we are taking the next logical step by expanding our knowledge along strike and at depth to give us geological data in three dimensions. At the same time, as our on-going geophysical work generates new targets, we continue to expand our knowledge of the property's potential."
Located in Argentina's Patagonia district, Pinguino is unique to the region because both base metal and precious metal discoveries have been made within a single property. Argentex has so far discovered close to 37 miles (60 kilometers) of epithermal veins at Pinguino as well as Patagonia's first and only indium-rich zinc-copper massive sulphide occurrence.
Drilling will be conducted by Connors Drilling, a respected Canadian company with an office in Mendoza, Argentina, and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2007. At least 20 holes are planned to test areas with potential mineralization at shallow depths.
Exploration on the Pinguino project is being conducted under the supervision of Mr. Kenneth Hicks, P.Geo., Argentex's President and a "qualified person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
Samples selected for analysis will be sent to ALS Labs Chemex in Argentina. The quality system at ALS Labs complies with the requirements of the international standards ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 17025:2005. Referee analyses will be carried out by Alex Stewart (assayers) Argentina S.A. in Mendoza, Argentina. Argentex, ALS Labs and Alex Stewart Labs maintain comprehensive and independent Quality Control/Quality Assurance programs.
