Silver Standard Resources Inc. (TSX:SSO, NASDAQ:SSRI) announces the results from the final 20 holes of the 33,100-meter diamond drill program at its 100% owned Brucejack Project.
The press release is quoted as saying:
SU-98, a metallurgical hole which was not sampled in the top 275 meters, intersected 130 meters averaging 1.40 grams of gold and 16.6 grams of silver per tonne, including 3.0 meters averaging 876.75 grams of gold and 597.55 grams of silver per tonne. This intersection is less than 50 meters from the historical West Zone which was defined by over 750 surface and underground drill holes and over 5,000 meters of underground workings. Intersections in holes SU-63, SU-66, SU-67, SU-98 and SU-100 define the footwall mineralization measuring approximately 120 by 500 meters. The close proximity of these intersections to an area extensively studied in the past exemplifies the continued exploration potential of the West Zone and the Brucejack Project as a whole.
