Two borate beds discovered in Jarandol

Erin Ventures Inc. (TSXV: EV) is pleased to report that it has received assay results from this year’s exploration program on its 100% owned Jarandol Basin boron property in Serbia, with the results meeting management’s expectations. This phase included the drilling of 8 exploratory vertical diamond drill holes (totaling 2,723.8 meters). The completion of this drill program has fulfilled Erin’s obligations in order to keep its license in good standing for an additional two years.

The Jarandol Basin license area covers 35 km2 directly adjacent to, and between, Erin’s 100% owned Piskanja boron project on the eastern edge of the Jarandol Basin, and the Serbian government owned Pobrdje Boron Mine, some 2.5 km away from Piskanja on the opposite edge of the Jarandol Basin. Jarandol has the potential to host extensions to both the Piskanja and the Pobrdje boron deposits, and/or the potential to host separate, similar boron deposits.

Highlights of the 2015 drill program

  • assays for the 8 holes are consistent with previous geological logging, with all 8 holes returning occurrences of borates
  • holes EVJ-04 and EVJ-05 confirmed one borate bed, including 1.88 meters of 41.31% B2O3
  • hole EVJ-06 confirmed two borate beds (including the same bed seen in holes EVJ-04 and EVJ-5), with results including 1.3 meters of 41.88% B2O3
  • holes EVJ-01, EVJ-02, EVJ-03, EVJ-07 and EVJ-08 returned non-economic borate values (assuming cut-offs of 12% B2O3 and 1 meter minimum intervals)
  • collectively, twenty-seven intervals of borate mineralization were detected in holes EVJ-02, EVJ-04, EVJ-05, EVJ-06, EVJ-07 and EVJ-08 grading from 4.00% to 9.76% B2O3
