AbraPlata Resource (TSX.V:ABRA) (OTCQB:ABBRF) (Frankfurt:1AH) (“AbraPlata” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it intersected 168.5g/t Ag over 29m (from 74m – 104m down the hole), including 707.0g/t Ag over 3m (from 79m – 82m) in which a single sample returned 1237g/t Ag over 1m in ongoing drilling at the Fantasma Mineralized Zone on its Diablillos property in northwestern Argentina.
These results form part of the third batch of samples received from SGS laboratories (see Table 1) for holes DDH-17-137 through DDH-17-142 (Figures 1, 2, & 3), and refer to hole DDH-17-142 (Figure 1) which was collared 65m due W of DDH-17-128 (the first hole of the current campaign and subject of news release dated August 1, 2017); DDH-17-142 was angled at -60° along an azimuth of 045°.
AbraPlata’s Executive Chairman, Hernan Zaballa, commented:
“We are extremely pleased that the results from the lab continue to build a picture of a spatially coherent body of mineralization at Fantasma.
Moreover, the data received to date suggest that a core of mineralization, grading in the region of 100 – 200g/t Ag, underlies the lower grade zone of mineralization of some 30 – 60g/t Ag intersected closer to surface in the upper part of previously reported holes NW of reference hole DDH-17-128”.
