Lakewood Exploration is pleased to report high grade surface samples from the Company’s recently acquired Eliza Silver project in Nevada. A total of 11 samples were collected from the Eliza claim block in an area adjacent to the past-producing California Mine, from which a nearly 25,000 gt silver sample was collected from surface in 1965, but never followed up.

A total of 11 samples were collected from the Eliza claim block in an area adjacent to the past-producing California Mine, from which a nearly 25,000 g/t silver sample was collected from surface in 1965, but never followed up.
Highlights from the sampling program include:
- 1,540 grams per tonne (g/t) Silver (Ag), 6.88% copper (Cu), 4.57% lead (Pb), 7.38% zinc (Zn) ( See Figure 2.)
- 1,410 g/t Ag, 0.23 g/t Au, 5.41% Cu, 9.05% Pb, 26% Zn (See Figure 3.)
“We are very pleased with these initial results from our first field program at the newly acquired Eliza Project, which has never before been explored using modern exploration technology or approaches,” stated President, Morgan Lekstrom. “To obtain excellent silver, copper, lead and zinc values from this initial sampling demonstrates the potential for significant mineralization across our property. We will use this information in addition to more detailed surface work, which is currently underway, to define drill targets later this year.”

Lakewood Exploration Inc. is a junior resource company advancing the past-producing Silver Strand Mine in the Coeur d’Alene Mining District in Idaho, USA, both the Eliza Silver Project and the Silverton Silver Mine in one of the world’s most prolific mining jurisdictions in Nevada and the Lacy Gold Project in British Columbia, Canada. The Company is rapidly advancing towards an initial drill program at Silver Strand with the aim of defining a large silver resource within a belt that has produced more than 1.2 billion ounces of silver to-date. Geologic studies indicate that the Silver Strand Mine is hosted by the Revett formation, suggesting the potential for significant down dip extensions as demonstrated by other major mines in the district. Previous operators were solely interested in developing the known shallow mineralization, with the mine’s lowest level extending only 90 meters below surface. Lakewood strives to become a multi-mine silver producer.
*Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company’s property.
