Becker – Chile

Santana Minerals’ gold-silver Becker Property is located 210km south of Santiago, Chile. The project hosts low-sulphidation epithermal style mineralisation, located within the significantly under-explored Chilean Coastal Range which hosts a number of gold-rich polymetallic deposits.

<h5>Lajuelas-Guindos Prospect – Becker Project</h5>
<p>The Lajuelas-Guindos Prospects are low sulphidation epithermal zones of mineralisation, with significant rock-chip samples and trench results that encouraged the completion of a maiden drill program at the prospects. Results from this 2018 drilling program from Lajuelas included:</p>
<ul>
<li>12m @ 8.1g/t Au from 9m (BDH18-08);</li>
<li>16m @ 3.5m  Au from 25m including 2m @ 17.2g/t Au (BDH18-08); and</li>
<li>7m @ 2.3g/t Au from surface (BDH18-09).</li>
</ul>
<p>Drilling at the Guindos Prospect during the 2018 campaign didn’t record significant gold results; however, wide zones of sulphide bearing quartz veins and breccia (pyrite, disseminated chalcopyrite and minor chalcocite) were intersected.</p>

<h5>Regional Tenements</h5>
<p>There are six properties surrounding the central Becker tenements, which include Aqua Buena, Becker North, Becker North-East, Botalcura, Gualleco, and Monte Maqui. Little previous exploration has been completed on these tenements, with gold-silver-copper values recorded and geological details noted indicative of epithermal and porphyry style prospects warranting further exploration.</p>
