Silver Bull Resources Inc. President, CEO, and Director, Tim Barry said:
We are very pleased with the results thus far from our twinning program in the high grade Zinc Zone. We have a significant amount of historical data that indicates that the Zinc Zone is a tremendously under recognized mineral body. We are by no means short of excellent silver resource expansion targets, but have a unique opportunity to quickly and efficiently increase the size and grade of the zinc resource by confirming the long hole data in the Zinc Zone which sits directly below and adjacent to the Shallow Silver Zone. We believe the zinc resource, when properly defined, has the potential to contribute equal gross metal value to the project as the silver.
