Additional drill results are anticipated over the next several months.
N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President and CEO, remarked:
We continue to successfully explore and expand our high-grade footprint at the Las Chispas Property through systematic drilling on multiple veins. A high-grade intercept of 1.9 metres grading 50.56 grams per tonne (gpt) gold and 5,018.8 gpt silver or 8,803 gpt silver equivalent (AgEq*) shows intact bonanza grades in the Giovanni Vein.
Our ongoing underground rehabilitation, sampling and drill-testing of the various veins continues to discover unmined areas with grades similar to reported historic production grades estimated at 15 gpt gold and 1,700 gpt silver or 2,875 gpt AgEq*.
