El Tigre Silver Corp.(CVE:ELS) reports that the diamond drill and assay results from its third exploration target on its 43,000 hectare El Tigre mining concessions in Sonora, Mexico.
The press release is quoted as saying:
Assays were received from Diamond Drill Hole ET-28 that advanced North 75 East inclined 45 degrees East to intersect the Level 7 crosscut at its intersection with the Seitz Kelly vein. The Level 7 Crosscut intersected 35 metres of approximately 165 grams silver per metric ton (4.5 ounces silver per ton) and 12 grams gold per metric ton (0.350 ounces gold per ton) of which 5 meters assayed 720 grams silver per metric ton (21 ounces silver per ton) in historic mine data.
El Tigre’s President and CEO, Stuart Ross says:
“The results of the drilling on Mule Mountain are a first attempt in an area in which little is known. ET -28 passed 40 meters above the target. However, even so, the hole encountered interesting silver gold values where it cut the El Tigre Vein. As we continue to collect data from the bottom of ET-25, ET-29, and ET-30 we will be able to further understand the significance of what we are encountering.”
