Alicanto Minerals Limited has secured tenure of the high-grade Sala silver project in Sweden.
Sala, which is located 100km from Alicanto’s Greater Falun copper-gold project, was once Europe’s largest silver producer. When mining finished in 1962, it had produced more than 200Moz of silver at an estimated average grade of 1,244 g/t and reported as high as 7,000 g/t2.
The sulphide mineralisation is hosted in dolomitic marble and occurs dominantly as silver-bearing galena and to a lesser extent as complex antimonides, sulphosalts and native silver. The silver content of the galena was between 0.15% to 1%, the latter being one of the highest contents of silver in galena ever reported.
Four holes drilled in November 2012 suggest the Sala mineralisation remains open at depth and along strike having intersected high-grade mineralisation including 0.67m at 844 g/t silver and 16.3% lead at 250m below surface.
Historical and further drilling (300m to the South West of Sala) at the Prince lode has highlighted a very promising high-grade mineralisation including 37.2m @ 50 g/t silver and 6.1% zinc.
Alicanto Minerals has a portfolio of high-grade Copper-Gold and Polymetallic Skarn (Copper-Gold-Zinc-Lead-Silver) and VMS projects located in the Bergslagen, Sweden.
