District Metals Corp continues to intersect significant polymetallic mineralization at Tomtebo
The company has now reported on drill core assay results for 16 of the 22 holes in its inaugural drill program, and the takeaway is that the polymetallic mineralized footprint of the historic Tomtebo mine is very large. and stay wide open
District Metals Corp () (OTCMKTS: MKVNF) (FRA: DFPP) revealed assay results from nine drill holes from its Tomtebo project in Sweden, which included strong zinc-lead-silver dominant mineralization.
Results from an initial drilling program on the property clearly indicate that the Tomtebo property contains an intense and intense polymetallic syn-volcanic mineral system, the company said.

Drill hole TOM21-004 encountered strong zinc-lead-silver predominant mineralization in the Oscarsgruvan zone, and holes TOM21-005 at -012 encountered varying grades and widths of predominantly zinc-lead-silver mineralization and copper-gold in the Steffenburgs area.
District Metals said the results were evidenced by 6.5 meters (m) at 3.8% zinc, 2.2% lead, 46.7 grams per tonne (g / t) silver, 0 , 4 g / t gold and 0.2% copper (198.9 to 205.4 m), including 1.65 m at 10.9% zinc, 5.0% lead, 93.4 g / t silver, 0.4 g / t gold and 0.1% copper (198.9 to 200.55 m).
Another hole, TOM21-008, intersected 5.3 m at 3.4% zinc, 1.2% lead, 20.8 g / t silver, 0.2 g / t gold and 0 , 1% copper (218.7 to 224.0 m).
TOM21-009 intersected 3.9 m at 3.7% zinc, 1.5% lead, 20.3 g / t silver, 0.2 g / t gold and 0.1% copper (141.4 to 145.3 m) and 0.35 m to 4.0 g / t gold, 3.7% copper, 53.2 g / t silver, 0.1% zinc and 0.1% lead (184.65 to 185.0 m).
TOM21-012 intersected 26.3 m at 0.6% copper, 0.2 g / t gold, 0.8% zinc, 0.4% lead, 24.4 g / t silver (301.9 to 328.2 m) including 3.8 m at 0.7% copper, 0.3 g / t gold, 1.7% zinc, 0.9% lead, 35.7 g / t silver (308.55 to 312.35 m).
“Information from the most recent drill holes adds to our growing understanding of the Tomtebo property,” District Metals technical advisor Rodney Allen said in a statement.
“The similarities with submarine volcanic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits around the world and with major polymetallic deposits near Bergslagen, including Garpenberg and Falun, allow us to compare and interpret the Tomtebo system”, he added.
Allen said District Metals expects further steps in understanding the Tomtebo mineral system to be taken once all geological and lithogeochemical data from the first drilling program has been compiled and interpreted.
“We have now reported drill core assay results for 16 of the 22 holes in our first drill program, and our conclusion is that the polymetallic mineralized footprint of the historic Tomtebo mine is very large and remains wide open. “said Garrett, CEO of District Metals. said Ainsworth.
“All drill holes encountered intense alteration with 13 of 16 holes returning mineralization above cut-off grades, testifying to the robust polymetallic mineral system at Tomtebo.”
Tomtebo is located in the Bergslagen mining district in the south-central and comprises 5,144 hectares located between the historic Falun mine and the Garpenberg mine in Boliden.
