Argentex Makes Pinguino Drill Results Available for Viewing in 3D
VANCOUVER, July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Argentex Mining Corporation (TSX-V: ATX, OTCBB: AGXM) is pleased to announce that drill results from its polymetallic Pinguino property can now be viewed in three-dimensional format using the technology of independent service provider Corebox.net. Interested investors can access this tool by clicking on the "3-D Drill Results" button on the Argentex web site homepage (http://www.argentexmining.com/).
"We are delighted to provide our investors with a new way to visualize the large number of mineralized zones that we have on the Pinguino property, and the mineralized drill intercepts within each of the major zones," said Ken Hicks, President of Argentex. "We believe this is an excellent tool to illustrate the impressive size and extent of mineralization at Pinguino, allowing investors to see for themselves the potential that the company is working diligently to develop."
Using Google Earth display software (http://earth.google.com/), the "Drill Plan in Google Earth" feature allows a worldwide perspective, zooming into a property-scale satellite image of the Pinguino property with the major zones labeled. The "3D Model" is broken up into four different zones (see the top of the right-hand column for the zone names). "Cross-sections" allows the selection of vertical cross-sections, displaying the mineralized intercept as well as published grades along the plane of the drilling in any location along the strike of each zone. This data includes drill results from Phase 1 drilling through to the company's most recent results from the current, ongoing drill program, which is the largest in Argentex's history. Argentex intends to update the 3D models as new drill results are received, interpreted and released to the public.
Corebox specializes in illustrating drill results for investors and is a leader at providing easy-to-use, interactive analytical tools that empower investors in visualizing and evaluating mineral properties.
