Materials firm Sunstone Metals Ltd (ASX:STM), on 18 January 2023, shared that discovery from drilling undertaken in December 2022 at the Limon target has met with a gold-copper porphyry system. The Limon target is situated within the Bramaderos project in southern Ecuador. The Company has an advanced portfolio of exploration projects in Ecuador.

Key takeaways from Limon gold-copper porphyry discovery

  • Sunstone announced today that it had discovered a well-mineralised gold-copper porphyry system at the Limon target. Limon target is located within the boundaries of the Bramaderos project in southern Ecuador, measuring 1.5km x 1km based on surface alteration and anomalous metal distribution.
  • Significant results include 79m at 0.90g/t AuEq (0.52g/t gold, 0.19% copper, 9.4g/t silver), from 90m in LMDD010, including 34.7m at 1.26g/t AuEq (0.77g/t gold, 0.24% copper, 14.1g/t silver), from 94m. [The gold equivalent calculation formula is AuEq(g/t) = Au(ppm) + (Ag (ppm) x 0.0082) + (Cu (%) x 1.5862)].
  • Sunstone's discovery strengthens the likelihood of more gold-copper porphyry systems within the 50kmsq Bramaderos concession. It also underlines the possibility of more such findings.
