Cerepulja Project Summary
The Cerepulja project is located in northern Kosovo, approximately 17km west of the town of Mitrovica. Exploration in the area was first undertaken in the 1950’s and has continued intermittently to the present time. This exploration has discovered high grade lead and zinc mineralization at surface. Historic work on the project reported zinc grades in excess of 30% and lead grades above 5% in trenching. This trenching was undertaken over a 200 metre by 160 metre area within a 500 metre by 3,000 metre zone of anomalous lead and zinc in soil samples. The project has also seen both core drilling and underground exploration through several adits.
Perry Grunenberg, PGeo., an independent qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43 – 101 has now completed the report on the project. This NI43 – 101 report integrates all of the historic work on the project and provides guidance to Altair’s future work programs.
