District Reports on Historic Shallow and High Grade Polymetallic Drill Intercepts at the Former Tomtebo Mine
VANCOUVER, BC, July 6, 2020 - District Metals Corp. (TSX-V: DMX) ("District" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has progressed the compilation of historical drill data, and the Leapfrog 3D geological model of the historic Tomtebo Mine located within District's polymetallic Tomtebo Property in the Bergslagen Mining District of south-central Sweden. In partnership with EMX Royalty Corp. (TSX-V:EMX), this work represents an important development for the Tomtebo Property that has never been previously conducted, and has already identified exceptional drill ready targets.
Historic drill highlights from the Oscarsgruvan zone at the Tomtebo Mine show significant polymetallic mineralization at shallow depths (within 200 m from surface) that is open along strike and at depth. These historic highlights are from drilling campaigns by Stora AB from 1916 to 1972.
Oscarsgruvan Historic Drill Highlights
The Oscarsgruvan zone is situated at the north end of the Tomtebo Mine, and is dominated by silver-zinc-lead mineralization with lesser copper-gold mineralization. The holes highlighted below show strong mineralization associated with semi-massive and massive sulphides over a dip extent of 200 m and strike extent of 170 m that remains open.
