Defiance Silver Corp (“Defiance”) is pleased to report the results from a further three holes drilled at the San Acacio deposit. Drilling continues to prove that mineralization continues at depth and along strike beyond the current resource at both wide widths and strong grades.
Detailed assaying of geochemical anomalies in Hole SAD 15-07 produced intersections of 3.6m grading 223 g/t AgEq, and 2.4 m grading 222.08 g/t AgEq. This is a new vein in the Hanging Wall in addition to the lower San Acacio vein intersection reported previously in News Release July 7, 2015, of 7.4m grading 264.54 g/t AgEq within an overall vein intersection of 21.1m grading 130.6 g/t AgEq.
Hole SAD15-06 returned two wide vein intersections of 7.3m and 11.5m on a hanging wall and San Acacio veins respectively. Both Hole SAD15-06 and SAD 15-07 were drilled beneath the lower limits of the current resource and will further increase the resource.
Bruce Winfield, President & CEO of Defiance stated, “We are very pleased that the results continue to include wide widths of strong silver mineralization on the main San Acacio vein up to 190m below the current resource limit. The discovery of new veins is exciting with four of the eight holes drilled to date intersecting multiple veins with potential to increase the resource as well. We also have identified a later Phase II mineralization that is enriched in gold-zinc-lead relative to the historical production at the San Acacio Mine. These exciting results encourage us to continue drilling to expand the zone of mineralization both along strike and down dip.”
Results are provided in the following table:
