Abstract: 

AyQalesi polymetal deposit is located 30 km southeast of Takab in Orumieh-Dokhtar structural zone. For Enzyme LeachSM analysis at the deposit, 723 samples were collected from B-horizon soils. Based on the analytical results and data interpretation, six oxidation anomalies, A through F, have been defined. Five of these are recommended as drill targets while one, anomaly C, is not recommended for drilling because it appears to represent a buried intrusion without significant Zn enrichment. Anomalies B, D and E have very high Zn values. For anomaly D, this is because of outcropping Zn mineralization and the presence of mine waste at surface. Anomalies B and E may occur above shallowly buried mineralized zones. Anomalies A, C and F contain much less Zn. Anomaly A may overlie a concealed zone of Zn mineralization that could be buried to a substantial depth. Anomaly F is not recommended for drilling because it appears to be a quite narrow mineralized zone.
