Exceptional 10.4m @44.0% Zinc At West Ayawilca Could Indicate Feeder System For Tinka Resources

1. Introduction

Investors had to wait longer than expected for a big hit, but this week Tinka Resources (TK.V, TKRFF.US) proved that looking for substantially more mineralization first instead of preparing a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) is a viable strategy. The latest hole returned an amazing intercept of 10.4m grading 44.0% Zn at West Ayawilca, and what is particularly interesting is that management seems to be verifying their new theory on Ayawilca structural controls of geology with this result. The share price reacted accordingly, with an impressive 36% jump and 2.7M shares traded volume on the day of the announcement:

Tinka Resources Closes C$16.2M Of Financings; Finds More Mineralization At West Ayawilca

1. Introduction

Tinka Resources (TK.V, TKRFF.US) came a long way doing their financings without the Canadian brokerages, supported by Sentient and IFC, but finally it was time to let them in as the upcoming/ongoing drill programs, resource estimate and Preliminary Economic Assessment demanded a substantial treasury, preferably raised well before it will be needed. The raised amount of no less than C$16.2M is among the highest for base metal explorers for the last year or so, although I believe it had a substantial impact on the share price.

Drilling At Zone 3 Returns 5m @ 20% Zinc; Tinka Resources Also Looking For The Source Of Ayawilca

1. Introduction

Slowly but surely and piece by piece, Tinka Resources (TK.V, TKRFF.US) is unraveling the complex puzzle which is the Ayawilca mineralization. As they hit more mineralization at Zone 3, for example best intercept 5m @20%Zn in hole A18-111, and polymetallic mineralization in adjacent hole A18-109, drilled from the same rig location, management seems more and more convinced that the source of all mineralization might be located below or east of Zone 3. This will have implications for the drill strategy to follow, and each new drill result will help determining the geological concept. The latest drill results, coming from various locations at Ayawilca, and possible consequences for tonnage will be discussed, as well as the geological concept.

Tinka Resources: Ayawilca Resource Update Confirms Expectations; Upcoming PEA Could Surprise Markets

1. Introduction

It is a busy and exciting time for top zinc junior Tinka Resources. Drill results are rolling in all year now, Tinka is the talk of the town at many conferences, the team got a much deserved accolade by receiving the Mining Journal "Explorer of the year 2017" award, and the company got listed on the Peruvian stock exchange (Lima Stock Exchange or BVL). I liked this move, as it made the company less dependent on for example Canadian brokers/banks to raise money in the future.

Tinka Resources: Ayawilca Could Grow Into A World Class Zinc Asset After Successful First Stage Of Step Out Drilling

1. Introduction

When a zinc junior manages to hit 63.9m @ 5.6% Zn and 51.9m@ 10.1% Zn in the very first step out drill hole of a new exploration program, you know they could be on to something very special. Until then, the markets were largely unaware of Tinka Resources and its Ayawilca zinc project in Peru, but this changed very quickly after this, and other intercepts. They were even one of the hottest exploration stories at this year's PDAC.
