Defiance Silver Corp (“Defiance”) is pleased to announce the start of a 2000 meter drill program on the San Acacio silver deposit in the historic Zacatecas Silver District in Mexico. The San Acacio deposit is hosted within the Veta Grande epithermal vein which is up to 20 meters wide and more than 8.5 km long. Historical production totals approximately 100 million ounces of silver.
The drilling program is focused on the 1 km long zone of historical workings which reaches depths of only 200 meters below surface. Mineralization is open to depth and along strike. Drilling is designed to intersect the vein in 75 meter increments from the deepest resource block to 150 meters below the old workings. This is the same depth to which Penoles mined on the adjacent Gutierrez mine with mineralization still open to depth.
Bruce Winfield, President and CEO of Defiance stated, “It will be very exciting to see the results of this first systematic testing of the depth potential for mineralization at San Acacio. This is the lowest risk/highest reward portion of the exploration potential at San Acacio”.
