Arizona Silver Drilling Extends Bulk Tonnage Target 115.9 Metres at 1.34 g/t Gold and 5.78 g/t Silver in Latest Drill Hole at the Philadelphia Project, Arizona


Vancouver, British Columbia TheNewswire - December 09 2021 Arizona Silver Exploration Inc. (TSXV: AZS ) ( OTC:AZASF ) is pleased to announce drilling results that extend the thickness of the bulk tonnage target at the Philadelphia Project, Arizona. The assay results are from previously un-assayed drill samples from the upper portions of two recently completed RC holes. Drilling is scheduled to resume as soon as a rig can be delivered to the property.


PRC21-85, the last hole drilled in the summer drilling campaign, intersected a total of 115.9 metres at 1.34 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold and 5.78 g/t silver from 60.9 metres to 176.8 metres depth downhole.

PRC21-80 intersected a total of 103.7 metres at 1.57 g/t gold and 7.64 g/t silver from 51.8 metres to 155.5 metres depth (103.7 metres) downhole.

On July 20, 2021 Arizona Silver reported drilling results on the above drill holes. Those holes reported 59.5 metres and 37 metre widths of mineralization from holes PRC21-85 and PRC21-80 respectively. Significantly, the latest results expand the width of that lower grade mineralization to 115.9 metres and 103.7 metres respectively. The samples represent intervals primarily from the hanging wall of the high-grade vein intercepts that were not submitted initially as they were not expected to contain appreciable gold.

Greg Hahn, VP-Exploration states " The assay results from altered volcanics in the hanging wall (upper portion) of the high-grade vein surprised us, carrying substantial gold where quartz veins are mostly absent. The gold appears to be associated with strong hydrothermal alteration comprising iron staining and clays, mostly green, not vein quartz that typifies the remainder of the mineralized intercepts. This association is new for the Philadelphia property and suggests we are on to a larger mineral system than just the high-grade vein that characterized historical production and our earlier exploration focus on the property".

"I am anxious to resume drilling using a diamond drill as follow up. The recently completed financing will provide us the budget to drill step-out holes to further extend the gold mineralization of Philadelphia", adds Greg Hahn."

Unsampled intervals from adjacent holes PRC21-78 and PRC21-79 will now be submitted for assay to evaluate the hanging wall volcanics in those drill holes.

Revised assay sections and summary interval sections for these two drill holes will be posted to the web   link here for sections . True thicknesses of the reported assay intervals are estimated to be approximately 72 metres.

QA/QC Program

Samples were delivered to the ALS sample preparation facility in Tucson, Arizona, where the samples are inventoried, dried, crushed and pulverized.  Pulverized splits are sent to the ALS analytical facility in Vancouver, British Columbia for analyses. All material handling is done under a strict chain of custody protocol.  Gold is determined by fire assay with an AA finish and silver is determined by ICP-MS methods within a 31-element suite.

The Company traditionally maintains its own program of inserting Standard Reference material in the form of standards and blanks to the sampling stream, prior to being shipped to ALS's preparation facility in Tucson, Arizona, in addition to the independent QA/QC protocols of ALS Global.

Endeavour Silver Provides Q4 2023 Construction Progress Update On the Terronera Mine

Endeavour Silver Corp. ("Endeavour" or the "Company") (NYSE: EXK; TSX: EDR) provides a Q4 2023 construction progress update for its Terronera Project in Jalisco state, Mexico. A photo gallery presentation accompanies this news release and can be found here or on the Company website at Terronera Project Progress Photos . All dollar ($) references in this news release are United States dollars.

The Terronera project has made significant construction progress to date. Concrete work is well advanced, and erection of structural steel for the grinding and flotation areas has started. In early 2024, the Company provided an Updated Initial Capital Cost ("2024 Updated Scenario"), which increased the project budget by $41 million to $271 million. This increase was primarily due to a stronger Mexican Peso, ongoing inflation and availability of bulk materials such as steel, piping and electrical supplies (see news release dated January 24, 2024 ). As of December 31, 2023, approximately $120 1 million had been invested in direct project expenditures, with project commitments totaling $171 1 , 2 million or 63% of the updated budget. With an experienced and seasoned team leading the project, the Company anticipates the schedule will remain in line with previous guidance, with initial production anticipated to start in the fourth quarter of 2024.
