Cyprium Mining (TSXV:CUG) has announced the results from nine underground samples taken from an oxidized zinc body level 14 as part of its ongoing exploration program of the Potosi silver mine in Mexico.
As quoted in the press release:

The nine samples were taken from level 14 of the Santo Domingo body and averaged 37% Zn over an average sample width of 1.53m. The oxide zinc material is mainly hemimorphite, a zinc silicate mineral, and contains variable but generally low concentrations of lead, iron and manganese. Given the positive nature of these results, Cyprium has taken an additional thirty-five samples from level 14 which will be sent for analysis shortly. Oxidized zinc material is different from the more usual zinc sulfide produced by flotation in most zinc mines, including in most areas of the Potosi mine, and requires different processing techniques to recover the zinc metal.

Alain Lambert, president and CEO, said:

The results announced today are part of an ongoing exploration program to evaluate the potential of different known mineralization in the Potosi mine. The Santo Domingo body where the samples were taken, also known as Main Silicate body, was partly mined in the past and efforts are underway to determine the volume and grades of remaining material. This area is not accessed by the recently rehabilitated Potosi No. 3 shaft that will be used to provide services such as compressed air and for haulage of broken mineralized rock from Tunel body on levels 2-4 (see News Releases of June 9 and 13, 2016) where underground development and exploration will begin shortly.
