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.

Fortuna increases Sunbird Resource and identifies new regional prospects at Séguéla, Côte d´Ivoire

Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (NYSE: FSM) (TSX: FVI) is pleased to provide an update on its exploration program at the Séguéla gold Project located in Côte d'Ivoire. Sunbird´s new resource estimation is in addition to Séguéla's current Mineral Reserves of 12.1 Mt averaging 2.80 gt Au containing 1.09 Moz (refer to Fortuna´s news release dated March 17, 2022 ).

Paul Weedon, Senior Vice President of Exploration at Fortuna, commented, "Drilling at Séguéla has continued to highlight the exploration potential of the project including the definition of a maiden Indicated Mineral Resource and a substantial increase in the Inferred Mineral Resource at the Sunbird Deposit. Successful regional exploration work has identified two new prosects, at Barana and Badior, and additional high-grade results from Kestrel." Mr. Weedon continued, "Ongoing extension drilling at Sunbird continues to expand the mineralized footprint, extending the southern high-grade shoot a further 75 meters along strike with drill hole SGDD109 intersecting 10.2 g/t gold over a true width of 9.1 meters and drill hole SGDD110 intersecting 10.2 g/t gold over a true width of 7.0 meters. Additionally, drilling has also confirmed the continuity of mineralization between the central and southern high-grade shoots, with intersections such as drill hole SGDD106 intersecting 6.5 g/t gold over a true width of 15.4 meters." Mr. Weedon concluded, "Regional exploration drilling has advanced two new discoveries, Barana and Badior, with results including 11.5 g/t gold over a true width of 15.4 meters from drill hole SGRC1521 at Badior. Furthermore, continued exploration at the previously identified Kestrel Prospect has extended mineralization an additional 200 meters along strike with highlights including 20.3 g/t gold over a true width of 3.5 meters from drill hole SGRC1537."

Top 5 Silver Stocks on the TSX and TSXV (Updated November 2022)

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

Silver hit a year-to-date high of US$26.36 per ounce in Q1, but has fallen significantly for much of the year alongside its sister metal gold. However, silver is finally seeing some positive momentum in Q4, reaching US$22.69 on December 1.

The Investing News Network spoke with John Feneck in early November, and the expert said silver has "big resistance" from US$22 to US$25; he was looking for it to break back into that range, which the metal has now accomplished.

The best silver stocks list below was generated on November 29 using TradingView’s stock screener, and it shows the five silver-focused companies with the biggest share price gains year-to-date. Companies on the TSX and TSXV were considered, but no TSX silver stocks made the cut. All the silver stocks listed had market caps above C$10 million at that time.

When Will Silver Go Up? (Updated 2022)

It’s no secret that the silver market can be incredibly volatile. From November 2021 to November 2022 alone, the white metal has seen price levels ranging from below US$18 per ounce to US$26.50.

Many investors are confused by the precious metal’s movement. After all, silver is a safe-haven asset that generally fares well in times of turmoil, and the past year has been packed with tense geopolitical events alongside the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Russian-Ukraine war, increasing oil and gas prices and rising inflation have further heightened global economic uncertainty.

Unfortunately, answering the question, “When will silver go up?” is tricky. Even seasoned analysts can’t tell the future, and it’s difficult to find a consensus on the topic of when it will exit its bear market and enter a bull market.
