Highest grades of gold, silver, and beryllium encountered to date in hole PC20-37, as follows:
Arizona Silver Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AZS) (OTCQB: AZASF) is pleased to report continuing high-grade gold and silver assay results from its recently completed core drilling program on the Company’s Philadelphia gold-silver project located in Mohave County, Arizona. The exploration work is focused on the northern strike extension from old high-grade underground mine production during the first half of the 20th century where high-grade drill hole intercepts were reported recently (September 02, 2020).
All six core holes reported here hit the primary vein target either along strike or down dip from the previous high-grade intercepts.
Arizona Silver’s Vice President – Exploration, Greg Hahn, commented, “We are excited that these results demonstrate the gold and silver grades and thicknesses encountered historically to the south of this drilling grogram continue to the north and remain wide open both along strike and down-dip. We will continue to pursue this high-grade vein with more core drilling to further identify grade and thickness within the plane of the vein.”

QA/QC Program for the 2019 Exploration Work
All assaying was conducted by ALS Global, an independent analytical laboratory. Core boxes were delivered to the ALS sample preparation facility in Tucson, Arizona, where the core is catalogued, photographed, sawed, and 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 and beryllium are determined by ICP-MS methods within a 31-element suite.
The Company 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.
