Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR) (NYSE: EXK) is pleased to report positive drill results from its ongoing drill program at its Parral project in the State of Chihuahua, Mexico. The high-grade silver results show the potential for resource expansion at depth and along strike in the El Verde and Sierra Plata Deep areas along the Veta Colorada structure. Since April of this year, the Company has drilled over 5,300 meters in 23 holes, totaling 8,100 meters year to date, with the aim to define and extend mineralized zones.
Considerable exploration potential remains along the 35 square kilometre land package and exploration will be on-going, with additional testing for new discoveries with surface mapping and sampling underway. This program will aid the Company’s goal to define a mineral resource large enough to support a preliminary economic assessment.
Highlights from Recent Drill Results
Abbreviations include: gpt: grams per tonne; Ag: silver; Pb: lead; Zn: zinc; ETW: estimated true width; m: metre; HW: hanging wall. Silver equivalents are calculated using a silver price of $22 per troy ounce, lead price of $0.90 per pound and zinc price of $1.20 per pound.
“In the areas of the El Verde and Sierra Plata historically mined areas, we continue to verify extensions of the mineralized zones at depth and along strike,” stated Dan Dickson, Chief Executive Officer. “The focus for the rest of the year will be to test the northern part of the project with a surface drilling program on various north to south striking structures, such as the northern extension of Veta Colorada, San Alberto and the El Cabezón systems; as well as resuming drilling of the San Patricio vein.”
