AMIS0421 Cu 15.88% Ag 67.1g/t Au 26.31g/t Chelopech Bulgaria

Origin of Material: The concentrate material for AMIS0421 was supplied by Namibia Custom Smelter (Dundee Precious Metals). The AMIS0421 concentrate is originally from Chelopech Mine located in central-western Bulgaria approximately 70 kilometres east of Sofia.

Mineral and Chemical Composition: Chelopech can be classified as a “gold-enargite high-sulphidation epithermal mineralizing system” similar to the deposits mined at Lepanto in the Philippines, El Indio in Chile, Freda River in Papua-New Guinea and Nansatsu in Japan. A cupriferous massive pyrite deposit is hosted in Upper Cretaceous andesitic to rhyodacitic pyroclastics and sub-volcanic intrusives. Massive pyrite predates the economic mineralization and is thought to be related to a phase of dacitic volcanism; whilst Cu, Cu-Au, Cu-Au-Pb-Zn and Pb-Zn mineralisation is later and related to a phase of injection of subvolcanic rhyodacites during the late Cretaceous. Mineralization shows a complex paragenesis with the main minerals comprising pyrite, quartz, chalcopyrite, tennantite and bornite whilst enargite, luzonite, tetrahedrite, gold, bournonite, chalcocite, sphalerite, galena, gypsum and barite are subordinate.
