Sunset Cove Mining (TSXV:SSM) reported results of 20 underground samples from five of the six recently discovered adits on its Carolay Silver Property in Peru. Nine of 20 assay results average more than 116 g/t of silver.
As quoted in the press release:
The assays returned averages of more than 116 grams per tonne silver from nine of the chip samples. The samples come from the new adits announced on November 27th, 2012 and the San Sebastian adit announced on February 20, 2013. The distance from the main Carolay Adit (Adit A) to Adit F, which returned up to 483g/t silver over 20 cm in a channel sample and is driven on the main Carolay Vein, is more than 480 meters horizontally and approximately 100 meters vertically. The highest assay obtained was a sample with greater than 1,500 g/t in a chip sample of 16 cm from Adit C, approximately 100 meters west of the main Carolay Adit.
The distance from the mail Carolay Adit to the San Sebastian Adit is over 3 kilometers. The San Sebastian adit returned up to 51.6 g/t silver.
Sunset Cove Mining President Lorne Woods said:
With these high grade results with up to more than 1500 g/t of silver in one of the adits, we believe that the assays demonstrate the potential viability of the Carolay Silver Project.
