Erin Ventures Inc. [TSX-V: EV] has received the assay results for the next two drill holes from its Piskanja boron project in Serbia (holes #129 and 132), with the results continuing to meet expectations.

Additionally, Erin is awaiting the results from SGS Canada Inc., Minerals Services in Lakefield Ontario of the chemical analysis for samples from the final five drill holes in Erin’s exploration drill program.

Assay Highlights
Holes EVP2012-129 and 132 are in-fill holes designed to help establish a compliant resource estimate, sufficient to qualify for a Serbian mining license. Hole 129 returned 9.8 metres of high-grade borates from four zones, including 2.7 metres of 41.6% B2O3. Hole 132 returned a total of 1.7 metres of high grade borates. A complete table of results is attached.

Erin’s exploration program

Erin’s exploration at Piskanja includes a recently completed diamond drill program of HQ and larger diameter vertical core drilling, consisting of in-fill drilling across the known mineralized area at Piskanja, on a 100 metre by 100 metre grid (with a tighter pattern already drilled over a portion of the area). Engineering, hydrogeology, environmental and other studies are also underway, in the anticipation of a mining license application, and the transition into feasibility and mine development phases.

Erin is ensuring that the project is being developed to provide disclosure in compliance with internationally accepted NI 43-101 standards, as well as conforming to the requisite Serbian mining standards. By doing so, Erin’s mine development planning and implementation will conform to the highest standards expected by the Serbian authorities, the international community, and potential strategic partners.

Chemical analyses are conducted as follows:

  • Results are stated as a percentage concentration
  • All measurements are metric
  • Chemical analysis was conducted by SGS Canada Inc. in Lakefield, Ontario with sample preparation being conducted by SGS’s facility in Serbia
  • Analytical Methodology: standard chemical analysis using ICP mass spectrometer and X-ray Diffraction (Aqua Regia and KOH Fusion and/or Titration)
  • Location: Piskanja Project, Baljevac, Serbia
  • Sample type: HQ size diamond core drilling
  • Azimuth/dip: vertical hole, 90 degree dip
  • Sample interval is 0.5 metres
