Maya Intersect 3.46 kg/t Ag over 8 m including 5.46 kg/t Ag over 5m at its Zgounder Silver Mine in the Kingdom of Morocco

 

 

 

 

 

Maya Gold & Silver Inc. (TSX: MYA) is pleased to announce the preliminary results from its on-going reverse circulation drilling program and trenching program at Zgounder property.

 

Highlights:

 

Reverse circulation drilling results

 

  • 8 m at 3464 g/t Ag in Hole RC_ZG_19_18 from 141 m to 149 m;
  • 11 m at 1205 g/t Ag in Hole RC_ZG_19_11 from 52 m to 63 m;
  • 4 m at 952 g/t Ag in Hole RC_ZG_19_19 from 6 m to 10 m;
  • 8 m at 880.5 g/t Ag in Hole RC_ZG_19_17 from 12 m to 20 m;
  • 17 m at 551 g/t Ag in Hole RC_ZG_19_18 from 84 m to 101 m;
  • 2 m at 1326.7 g/t Ag in Hole ZG_RC_19_14 from 15 m to 17 m;
  • 2 m at 509.5 g/t Ag in Hole ZG_RC_19_14 from 2 m to 4 m;
  • 2 m at 471.8 g/t Ag in Hole RC_ZG_19_17 from 105 m to 107 m;

 

Trenching samples

 

  • 500 g/t Ag over 4 m (samples numberE10 to E13), Trench TR03 oriented NNW;
  • 150 g/t Ag over 8 m (samples numberE34 to E41), Trench TR02 oriented NNW;
  • 576 g/t Ag over 1 m (sample numberE3), Trench TR03 oriented NNW;
  • 526 g/t Ag over 1 m (sample numberE80), Trench TR03 oriented NNW;
  • 184 g/t Ag over 1 m (sample numberE31), Trench TR03 oriented NNW;

 

The current reverse circulation drilling program consists of 28 drill-holes, totalling 3035 meters drilled from the surface at the eastern zone of the Zgounder property. The RC drilling campaign aims to provide a better understanding of the distribution of the mineralized structures (orientation and thickness) and to explore the vertical extensions of the exposed mineralized structures.

 

The preliminary results confirm the good continuity of the known mineralized envelopes and new occurrences hosted in the same major E-W structures.

 

The full RC drilling results of this campaign are pending, they will be disclosed once received, compiled and verified. This should allow the company to integrate the whole data and to refine the quality of the in-pit constrained mineral resource estimate.

 

With these encouraging preliminary results at the surface, Maya Gold and Silver expects to be in the position to initiate an underground diamond drilling program to explore the vertical extensions of the mineralization the western and the central part of the Zgounder silver mine.

The assay results for an interval of 1 meter. The sample lengths reported are between 60% and 70% of true widths. The grades herein are reported as uncapped values.

 

A total of 894 m RC samples (not including Blank and Standards) were submitted to the independent laboratory Afrilab based in Marrakech (Morocco) for preparation and assaying.

 

The maps present drill hole locations and the position of the intersections of interest :

Surface sampling

 

The Maya’s geologists, started the trenching program at Zgounder in June 2019 and to date focused only on the eastern zone of the Zgounder mine.

 

The current sampling program consists on trench sampling (with saw) and cross-cutting the exposed mineralized structures oriented E-W, NNW-SSE filled by quartz/carbonate cements and traces of malachite and pyrite. Samples length is one meter and their location was determined using a hand GPS.

 

The table below show the trenching highlights.

Quality Control / Quality Assurance

 

The direction and inclination of the RC drillholes were oriented in a way to target perpendicular to mineralization. The RC samples were prepared at the mine site. After drying, each sample was divided in two using the Jones riffle separator. One part was placed in a tightly sealed plastic bag with a laboratory identification number and grouped in sealed plastic buckets which were sent to Afrilab laboratory. The remaining material was kept for archive in the core shack.

 

The RC samples were crushed to have d80 passing 2mm and afterward riffle split to have 100 grams which was pulverized to have a pulp d80 of 75 microns Multi acid digestion and Atomic Absorption reading. Fire assay was used for Ag, Cu, Pb and Zn grade determination. The standards and blanks used were in line with expected results
