VANCOUVER, BC, March 2, 2022 /CNW/ - Sable Resources Ltd. ("Sable" or the "Company") (TSXV: SAE) (OTCQB: SBLRF) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling at its Pyros porphyry target, part of the Company's flagship El Fierro Project. Sable's exploration work has identified the footprint of a large Cu-Mo-Au porphyry system interpreted to be the centre of the polymetallic veins that the Company has explored at El Fierro during the last two seasons.  The Pyros porphyry target displays numerous critical characteristics that the Company believes could indicate the presence of a significant mineralized porphyry complex.

Pyros is a new, unknown system identified by Sable's exploration team at El Fierro and it has never been sampled or drilled previously by any company. Pyros is now the nearest porphyry prospect south of the Filo del Sol – Jose Maria cluster.

Key Characteristics of Pyros

  • Significant Size: Pyros is an outcropping 4 x 2 km porphyry system, characterized by a large zone of quartz-sericite alteration overprinting early porphyry-style quartz veinlets.
  • Age: Sable's geochronological data confirms that the Pyros porphyry system is Miocene (20Ma), which corresponds with the mineralization age of the prolific Maricunga Cu-Au mineral belt (≈14 to 24 Ma), host of multi-million tonnes Au-Cu deposits including Cerro Casale, Filo del Sol, Jose Maria, Marte-Lobo, and Caspiche.
  • Right Erosion Level: The observed alteration at surface is characteristic of upper levels of porphyry centers, indicating that the potential ore zone associated with potassic alteration is not eroded away but still close to surface. The system outcrops mostly on sericitic alteration with a small erosional window of potassic altered diorite intrusions.
  • Fertility: The porphyry center at Pyros is interpreted to be the source of the magmatic-hydrothermal fluids of the polymetallic veins of El Fierro. the ability to produce more than 14km of Ag-Au-Cu-Pb-Zn high-grade veins can indicate a fertile and metal rich system.
  • Leached Cap: A leached cap forms above a mineralized porphyry deposit when all the sulfides contained above the water table are oxidized. Within the leached cap copper is completely leached, vertically transported, and redeposited at depth a the bottom of the oxidized zone forming a supergene enrichment copper blanket. Some of the important pophryry systems of the world, like Escondida in Chile, contain large - high grade copper zones formed below leached caps.

Ruben Padilla, President and CEO of Sable commented, "The identification of the Pyros porphyry at the El Fierro Project is an important finding that now defines the El Fierro Project as a preserved large porphyry-epithermal mineral district of at least 8 x 8 km. Pyros shows all the characteristics of the known large porphyry deposits in the region."

Sable has planned two drilling fences comprising a total of 3,900m to intercept the entire width of the system with the goal of defining the number of porphyry phases and their respective Cu-Au-Mo grades, as well as test the supergene enrichment target.

Copper has been leached from the phyllic zone but it shows values up to 0.2% Cu in a small erosional window of the Miocene diorite porphyry (CNW Group/Sable Resources Ltd.)

The El Fierro Project is located 250 km northwest of San Juan, Argentina and 120 km north of Sable's Don Julio Project in one of the best-known historical mining districts in the San Juan province. The El Fierro Project consists of four main known mineralized areas - Fierro Alto, Fierro Bajo, La Verde and Lagunitas over an area of 8.6 km x 6.2 km.  Three of the four areas host a number of old artisanal mining workings where silver, lead and zinc were intermittently mined since the late 1800's until the 1960s.  Prior to Sable's 2021 drill program, the Property had never been drilled.  Sable currently controls 58,510 hectares covering all the historically mineralized areas and additional highly prospective ground over a large magnetic anomaly.


Sable is a well-funded junior grassroots explorer focused on the discovery of new precious metal projects through systematic exploration in endowed terranes located in favorable, established mining jurisdictions. Sable's main focus is developing its large portfolio of new greenfields projects to resource level. Sable is actively exploring the San Juan Regional Program (163,969 ha) incorporating the Don Julio, El Fierro, La Poncha, and los Pumas Projects in San Juan Province, Argentina; and the Mexico Regional Program (1.16Mha in application, 39,000ha titled) incorporating the Vinata and El Escarpe projects.
