Orex Minerals (TSXV:REX) has announced that the Phase-II diamond drilling program is complete on the Sandra Escobar Project in Durango, Mexico. Assays for eight more drill holes are now available.
As quoted in the press release:
Highlight for this batch of holes is SA-16-038 in a step-out hole, 350 metres west of the Main Zone, which yielded 46 metres core length (26 m true thickness) grading 156 g/t silver, starting from surface. Within this is a sub-interval of 8 metres (4.5 m true thickness) grading 282 g/t silver.
Two test reconnaissance holes, SA-16-037 and 038, were drilled in the Burro Zone, 350 metres west of the Main Zone, both of which yielded good silver grades. These are the first two holes in the Burro Zone. One test reconnaissance hole, SA-16-036, was drilled in a step-out hole, 500 metres south of the Main Zone, which yielded anomalous silver values.
Five of the eight holes, SA-16-031 to 035, are in the eastern portion of the Main Zone. While these limit the eastern extension, the Main Zone is still open to the south and west.
