The VG mineralized zone has now been confirmed by trenching over 390 metres of strike length and remains open to the west and east
Comstock has completed infill and offset trenches at the VG Zone following the discovery of gold mineralization in trench QVTR12-06 (3.74 g/t Au over 75 m, see July 25, 2012 News Release). The trench-indicated gold mineralization extends over 390 m of assumed strike length and is considered open to the west and east. Mineralization at the VG Zone is oriented in a northeasterly direction and is associated with quartz veins and stockwork, silicification, and brecciation, accompanied by pyrite.
