VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/13 -- Rokmaster Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE: RKR) ("Rokmaster" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has discovered a new zone on the Pinaya Project yielding results up to 2.91% copper and 36.0 grams per tonne ("g/t") silver over 2.0 metres.
Rock chip sample results from an argillic altered 300 x 400 metre area hosted by porphyritic andesites yielded highly anomalous copper and silver values. Mineralization includes fracture controlled malachite and chrysocolla associated with moderate to strong limonite oxidation. This new porphyry target is located on trend 10.5 km southwest of the Western Porphyry resource area (9.5 km from the nearest drill hole) and immediately southeast of the Saitocco Zone. Reconnaissance rock chip samples within the area contained up to 2.91 % copper with 36.0 g/t silver and 0.946 % copper with 120.0 g/t silver, over two metre sample widths in fractured host porphyritic andesites. All analytical work was carried out by ACME Analytical Laboratories Ltd., an ISO 9001 & ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory in Vancouver, BC, Canada. More work is recommended for this zone, known as Plata Sur, including mapping, rock sampling, and trenching.
