Serengeti Identifies High Priority Drill Target nearby Kemess Mine in Northern BC
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Oct 20, 2016) - Serengeti Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SIR)(34S.F) has identified a very strong induced polarization (IP) geophysical anomaly associated with a strong copper-zinc-gold soil geochemical response and favourable altered volcanic host rocks, on its 100% held UDS property located seven kilometers northeast of the former producing Kemess South open pit mine, now owned by Aurico Metals Inc. Kemess produced 3 million ounces of gold and 360,000 tonnes of copper between 1997 and 2011*. Serengeti views this newly identified target as having the size and intensity to host a significant sulphide system at relatively shallow depth. It remains open to the north for expansion and is a high priority for drill testing.
Serengeti completed a deep penetrating, reconnaissance IP geophysical survey along four widely spaced lines on the UDS property in September. Three of the lines covered valley bottom located along a major structure northeast of the Kemess South open pit and east of the Kemess Underground and Kemess East deposits. The area had previously been identified by Serengeti as highly prospective.
