Discovery Metals (TSXV:DSV) has released a second batch of assays results from the detailed underground channel sampling program at its flagship Puerto Rico project in northern Coahuila State, Mexico.
As quoted in the press release, president and chief executive officer of Discovery Metals Taj Singh said:
“Additional assay results from our sampling program at Puerto Rico continue to highlight the high-grade nature and strong continuity of mineralization in the historic underground workings at Puerto Rico. Our mapping and sampling program is progressing well and we continue to be on pace to have drill-ready targets in Q3.”
As highlighted in the press release:
- Second batch of channel samples from the Zaragoza mine area at the Puerto Rico project, with all 90 of the new samples from the Grande level. With these results, assays from aprox 70 percent of Zaragoza’s three levels of workings have been received.
- Highlights of new channel samples include:
2.2m of 624 grams per tonne (g/t) of silver, 6.1percent zinc, 2.5 percent lead, 0.4 percent copper, including 0.7m of 1,859 g/t silver, 7.6 percent zinc, 5.7 percent lead, and 1.0 percent copper;
2.0m of 268 g/t silver, 17.5 percent zinc, 9.8 percent lead, 0.2 percent copper, including 0.9m of 529 g/t silver, 19.6 percent zinc, 18.2 percent lead, and 0.5 percent copper;
1.8m of 179 g/t silver, 18.3 percent zinc, 12.6 percent lead, and 0.1 percent copper, including 0.7m of 148 g/t silver, 27.9 percent zinc, 2.6 percent lead, and 0.1 percent copper
Strong grades and widths of mineralization are noted over entire workings. Fifteen of the 90 samples tested manto mineralization; the average grade (arithmetic) of manto samples is 182 g/t silver, 8.6 percent zinc, 3.0 percent lead, 0.1 percent copper, and represents a cumulative length of approximately 100m of workings.
- The sampling program tests the three key historic mines of the Puerto Rico project. Sampling of the Zaragoza and San Jose mine areas is complete and sampling of the Puerto Rico mine area is currently underway.
