Caracara Silver Intersects 87 g Silver in Peru

 
 
 
 
Caracara Silver Inc., (TSX VENTURE:CSV) announce that the first hole completed on the Princesa silver-lead-zinc project located 850 kilometres south east of Lima, in Puno Department, Peru, has intersected 2.2 m grading 87.8 grams silver per tonne, 1.6% lead and 1.75% zinc in hole PRIN12-01. This intersection was within a wider 9.2 metre section assaying 47.4 grams silver per tonne, 1.47% lead and 1.1% zinc.
 

PRIN12-01 was drilled to verify and test for mineralization between holes PRIN 61 and PRIN 62, which were drilled by a previous company in 2007.

 

A second hole, PRIN12-02 was collared to test the Princesa zone below historic hole PRIN 62 and intersected a 33.7 metres envelope of low grade mineralization, including a higher grading intersection of 3 metres assaying at 32.5 grams silver per tonne, 0.9% lead and 0.74% zinc.

 

A list of the complete drill results is included in the table below.
