Silver Standard Resources Inc. (TSX:SSO) reported the results of the first eight holes drilles in the Cortaderas target area at Pirquitas mine in Argentina, which show significant silver and zinc mineralization  in the area.

As quoted in the press rekease:

Select assay results from the first eight holes completed include:

  • DDH-230: 24 meters at 1,764 g/t Ag and 4.9% Zn
  • DDH-231: 78 meters at 756 g/t Ag and 9.8% Zn
  • DDH-232: 25 meters at 425 g/t Ag and 4.4% Zn
  • DDH-233: 69 meters at 324 g/t Ag and 5.8% Zn

Vice President of Exploration, Ron Burk, stated:

These drill results again highlight the growing potential of the resources discovered last year in the Cortaderas target area, situated approximately 300 meters north of the open-pit. The eight reported drill holes tested for and confirmed the lateral continuation of the Cortaderas Breccia resource. The high-grade breccia-hosted mineralization intersected by holes DDH-230 and DDH-231 is very similar to the style of mineralization previously intersected by holes DDH-167 and DDH-214(1). Based on the results of these drill holes, we are confident the Cortaderas Breccia body will be extended by 50 meters to the west, east and south, with the east and west margins remaining open.
