Toronto, Ontario, April 10, 2018 – Emerita Resources Corp. (“Emerita” or the “Company”) (TSXV: EMO) has received the necessary permits to commence diamond drilling and  drills have been mobilized to its Salobro zinc project located in Minas Gerais State, Brazil (Figure 1).  Emerita has awarded the drilling contract to Sevitec/Foraco Drilling, and staff are on site preparing for the commencement of the drilling campaign.  

The key deliverable for the Company’s ongoing exploration program will be to complete a mineral resource estimate that meets National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) standards.  The Company is targeting completion of the revised resource by the end of Q2/2018.  Based on a historical resource estimate, the Salobro zinc-lead deposit is estimated to contain 8.3 million tonnes grading 7.12% zinc and lead.  A summary of the historical resource estimate can be found on the Company’s website in a report entitled “Mineralizações De Zinco E Chumbo Do Depósito Salobro, Porteirinha (Mg) (2006)”.   A “qualified person”, as defined in NI 43-101, has not done sufficient work on behalf of Emerita to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and Emerita is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or mineral reserve. Further work must be completed in order to demonstrate whether a reasonable expectation for commercial extraction exists. The mineral resource estimate is a historical estimate and should not be relied upon.  

The initial drilling program contemplates 3,500 meters of diamond drilling with the objective of expanding the resource (Figure 2).  In advance of the diamond drilling program, Emerita’s exploration team has been busy advancing the following essential activities required to accomplish this objective efficiently:

-- ProUrb Engenharia Ltda. completed geodesic surveys of 20 collars/monuments using RTK high precision positioning system, as part of the historical data validation procedures.

-- Approximately 12 km of drill access roads have been created/rehabilitated.

-- 15 drill pads have been prepared.

-- Selected resampling of historical drill core is in progress as part of the QA/QC procedures to validate previous assays. Resampling of 10 drill holes (FD-02, 03, 06, 09, 10, 13, 14, 17, 18 and 23) have been completed to date (assays pending).

-- Relogging of previous drill core to improve understanding of mineralization controls in preparation for geological modelling is in progress. 11 drill holes have been relogged to date (DDH FD-01, 02, 04, 05, 08, 09, 11, 12, 13, 15 and 16). Rock coding is being revised to support the updated geological model.

-- Prominas, an engineering firm based in Belo Horizonte, has completed an engineering report laying out a preliminary mine plan for the Salobro deposit that is being used to prioritize the drilling.

-- Field office and core shack, including sampling facilities, have been established at site.

-- Health, safety and environmental plans including emergency preparedness procedures have been established and are being incorporated into the field program.

-- A proposal for community engagement is in progress and an initial draft of the proposal is being reviewed.

-- A Canadian based geophysicist with extensive base metals experience has been contracted to process the existing geophysical data base to improve diamond drill targeting.

David Gower, P. Geo., Chair of Emerita, stated, “We are very excited to begin the drill program at the Salobro zinc project.  We see excellent potential to expand the existing resource and the previous work completed by Vale was to a high technical standard which provides an excellent base from which to accelerate the evaluation of the project.”

Globe says Emerita Resources rated "speculative buy"

2018-03-27 - In the News

The Globe and Mail reports in its Tuesday, March 27, edition that Mackie Research analyst Stuart McDougall says Emerita Resources (11 cents) is building a portfolio of zinc projects that could propel it from developer to producer in relatively quick order. The Globe´s David Leeder writes in the Eye On Equities column that Mr. McDougall began coverage with a "speculative buy" rating. Mr. McDougall set a share price target of 40 cents. He says Emerita is an advancing zinc play at a fraction of the going rate. Mr. McDougall says in a note: "The flagship Salobro project, in Brazil, contains an historic resource exceeding one billion pounds, while the Plaza Norte project, in Spain, sits next to one of the world´s richest historic zinc mines, Reocin. Moreover, the latter is being advanced in partnership with Grupo Aldesa, one of Spain´s largest construction companies. We also think that partnership places Emerita in good stead with its ongoing pursuit of two other domestic assets: Aznacollar and Paymogo. All told, Emerita has nearly nine billion pounds of potential zinc mineral inventory in its sights." Mr. McDougall is currently the lone analyst covering Emerita, according to Bloomberg.
