Phase 2 drilling will remain focused on the underexplored Noria portion of the Property and new targets that were identified in the results received to date from the Phase 1 drilling program.
As previously reported, a new discovery that is of primary interest is a shallow high-grade gold zone that was unexpectedly hit in hole NOR-21-004. The hole, which deviated significantly to the south of the intended target, encountered high-grade gold in multiple intervals that included 19.2 grams per tonne (g/t) (0.677 oz/ton) gold (Au) over 3.00 metres (m) starting from a depth of 126 m downhole and 29.0 g/t (1.023 oz/ton) Au over 1.01 m starting from a depth of 164.61 m downhole.
The Phase 1 program consisted of 11 holes for a total of 2,424 m of drilling. Sample assay results for the first seven holes were reported on March 24, 2022 (See news release), and results for the remaining holes are expected shortly. For Phase 1 drill hole collar locations, see plan map.
"We are fully funded for Phase 2 drilling and excited to commence follow up on the new gold discovery," said Mike Romanik, president of Silver Dollar. "We are expecting the balance of the Phase 1 drill results shortly and will tailor and expand the program as additional targets become more clearly defined."
