Tigris - Gomec, W Turkey - Jun 2014
In June 2014 Andrew Jackson visited Tigris's Gomec license, which is 100km north of Izmir in Western Turkey. There are several known low-sulphidation epithermal deposits in the area, including Koza Gold's Ovacik, Kucukdere and Kubaslar.
The target at Gomec is a trend of intermittent low-sulphidation epithermal mineralization with an enigmatic style of mineralization consisting of silicified/sericitized and weakly sheared andesite that contains gold. These andesites have produced some impressive soil geochemistry anomalies, both in dimensions and amplitude. The LS epithermal veins are several metres thick but seem to be only spottily mineralized. However the silicified andesite may have the potential to produce a bulk mineable target, and this will be the primary exploration target.
Channel samplng and ground mag have been carried out, but assays were not available at the time of the site visit. It is expected that these will allow targeting of broad-spaced fences of RC drilling that will be carried out in Q3 2014.
