Silver Mountain Mines Inc. (TSXV:SMM) announced that it has started the 2014 exploration field program at its British Columbia-based Ptarmigan Mine property.
As quoted in the press release:
The 2014 exploration field program will include further gravity surveys in the Ptarmigan basin and an estimated 3,200 metres 2014 diamond drill program to test and confirm mineralized depth. The area surrounding the Property hosts an abundance of documented former producing mines, including the Mineral King, Blue Bell and Paradise Mines. The Company believes that currently identified mineralization could include both polymetallic Ag-Au-Cu-Pb-Zn veins and Ag-Au-Pb manto style mineralization.
Management’s 2014 goal is to better define and increase both size and potential of the Ptarmigan Basin using all compiled data with updated interpretations from its 2012 and 2013 programs to strategically plan its 2014 exploration program.
