- January 23rd, 2019

New Pacific Metals announced the first batch of drill results from its wholly-owned Silver Sand project in Potosí department, Bolivia.

New Pacific Metals Corp. (TSXV:NUAG, OTCQX:NUPMF) announced the first batch of drill results from its wholly-owned Silver Sand project in Potosí department, Bolivia.

The drilling program commenced in mid-October 2017.  A total of 55,010 metres in 195 HQ size diamond core drill holes had been completed by mid-December 2018.  The drill program covers an area of approximately 1,600 meters long in the north-south direction and up to 800 meters wide in the east-west direction.  The holes were drilled along northeast 60 degree oriented sections with a 50 meters spacing between the sections.  Most drill holes are drilled at dip angle of 45 degrees to penetrate the principal trend of the mineralized structure zones with an average hole length of approximately 285 meters.  To date, assay results of drill core samples of 98 holes have been received and analyzed, of which 94 holes intercepted silver mineralization.
