Denarius Metals Corp. ("Denarius" or "the Company") (TSXV: DSLV; OTCQB: DNRSF) announced today that it has received complete assays for four additional drill holes, totaling 1,289 meters, from the ongoing surface diamond drilling program on its polymetallic Lomero-Poyatos Project in Southern Spain. To date, Denarius has completed approximately 8,600 meters of drilling, representing 36% of the initial program, in 28 holes with two additional holes in process.

Key takeaways from the exploration work carried out at the Lomero-Poyatos Project to-date include:

  • The current drill data increases our confidence in the geological model created using validated data from previous explorers' drilling campaigns;
  • The additional infill drill results confirm that the massive and semi-massive sulfide zones at Lomero-Poyatos are significantly enriched in gold and validate the thickness and grades of selected drill holes from previous drilling campaigns; and,
  • Initial surface geological mapping in the northern sector of the permit confirms that there is evidence of an E-W trending shear-zone sub-parallel to the known shear-hosted Lomero-Poyatos deposit, on which some historical mining workings have been developed. Denarius intends to carry out testing through a geophysical survey as soon as instruments are available to determine the potential that the mineralization persists over the strike length of the known deposit.

Serafino Iacono, Executive Chairman and CEO of Denarius, commented, "These additional drilling results and the initial geological mapping at the Lomero-Poyatos Project are very encouraging. Our drilling to-date has tested an area within this well-known VMS deposit that is over 1,000 m along strike and 190 m deep. All the holes drilled to-date have intercepted massive sulphide mineralization. We are moving forward with a third rig to accelerate the ongoing drilling program in order to prepare an updated NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate and scoping study by the third quarter of this year. We are confident that our exploration campaign at the Lomero-Poyatos Project will continue to be a key value driver for Denarius as we move forward ".

This is the Company's first diamond drill campaign at its flagship project in Andalucia Region, Southern Spain, located within the Iberian Pyrite Belt. The Lomero-Poyatos Project comprises a 100% interest in the P.I. Rubia, License Nº 14.977, covering the areas occupied by the former Lomero-Poyatos Concessions. The initial surface drilling program at the Lomero-Poyatos Project, which commenced in late October 2021, is designed with three objectives: (i) to validate selected historical holes drilled within the existing mine, (ii) to carry out infill drilling on a 50 m by 50 m spacing in the lower levels of the mine, and (iii) extension drilling consisting of 17 holes. The planned total in this initial program is to complete approximately 81 drill holes for a total of approximately 23,500 meters of drilling. The Company is fully financed to complete the ongoing program and drill up to a further 40,000 meters. A third diamond drill rig has arrived on site to expedite the ongoing drilling program on the Lomero-Poyatos deposit and is expected to be operational by the end of February.

The Company has established COVID-19 safety protocols for ensuring a secure work environment for its employees and contractors.

Key Highlights

  • The area tested by drilling to-date is over 1,000 m along strike and 190 m deep and will continue to expand as the program progresses. All the holes have intercepted massive sulphide mineralization.
  • Drill holes LM21009 and LM21007 (previously reported on January 18, 2022), along with drill hole LM21010, for which assay results are still pending, successfully delineate high-grade gold and polymetallic mineralization over 200 meters of strike length in the eastern portion of the deposit.
  • Drill holes LM21013 and LM21015 were successful in confirming high-grade gold mineralization at the westernmost end of the historical mine.
  • Initial surface geological mapping in the northern sector of the permit has confirmed that there is evidence of an E-W trending shear-zone sub-parallel to the known Lomero-Poyatos deposit hosted within a ductile shear-zone, on which some historical mining workings have been developed, such as the Alianza Shaft. This shear-zone outcrops to the east of the NE trending, steeply dipping, fault that delimits and bends the mine workings at the easternmost end of the historical mine.
  • Denarius plans to engage International Geophysical Technology, S.L. ("IGT") services to carry out a geophysical campaign (gravimetry and Time Domain Electromagnetic surveys) on the Lomero-Poyatos Project. The geophysical surveys will cover the entire area with the objective to determine the possible extension of the known deposit along strike and at depth and identify new mineral deposits. IGT is a Spanish geophysical consulting company based in Madrid and has worked with the private sector and public institutions in more than 30 countries. In the Iberian Pyrite Belt, IGT was involved in the discovery of the geophysical anomaly related to the Magdalena VMS deposit, which is the most recent commercial discovery in this belt.
  • One of the key objectives of the current drill program at Lomero-Poyatos is to obtain material for metallurgical samples. Understanding the complex metallurgical nature of the Lomero-Poyatos mineralization is seen as critical because previous metallurgical work was deemed incomplete and ambiguous. To gain a better understanding of the ore mineralogy of the deposit to support a first phase of metallurgical testing, Denarius has engaged Dr. Dolores Yesares, professor of the Department of Mineralogy and Petrology of the Faculty of Geological Sciences of the Universidad Complutense of Madrid, who since 2008 has been involved in different projects focusing on the metallogenesis of both Cu-Zn-Pb and Au-Ag mineralization in several world class mining districts.

The following table lists the key intercepts from the ongoing Lomero-Poyatos drilling program since the Company's previous press release issued on January 18, 2022:

Top 5 Junior Silver Stocks on the TSXV in 2022

Click here to read the previous best junior silver stocks article.

Silver saw a strong run in the first quarter of the year, reaching a year-to-date high of US$26.36 per ounce, but it fell throughout Q2 to sit around the US$21 mark.

The Investing News Network spoke with Peter Krauth, editor of Silver Stock Investor, at this year's Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada convention. He said realistically silver could hit US$25 this year, or a little higher.

"I think that (investment demand is) going to be kind of the wild card that could really push silver much higher," Krauth explained. "People are going to get excited about gold, and they're going to look for an alternative."

Peter Krauth: Silver's 2022 Price Path, "Wild Card" Demand Factor to Watchyoutu.be

Peter Krauth, editor of Silver Stock Investor, has a long-term silver price target of US$300 per ounce. But what does he see coming for the white metal in 2022?

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Krauth said he thinks a realistic move for silver this year would be "to at least US$25, or a little bit north of US$25."

In his opinion, industrial demand will create a key price floor, while investment demand will be less predictable.
