MAYA intersects 949 g/t Ag over 14m in DDH ZG-19-04 and 3,547 g/t Ag over 6m in ZG-RC-19-27

 

 

 

 

 

Maya Gold & Silver Inc. (TSX: MYA) is pleased to announce significant diamond drill and reverse circulation drill holes results of its 2020 ongoing drilling program at its Zgounder silver mine in the kingdom of Morocco.

 

The Corporation reports assay results from three diamond holes (ZG-19-01, -04 and -06) totaling 833.8m out of seven drill holes (ZG-19-01 to -07) totaling 1774.1m and four Reverse Circulation (RC) holes (ZG-RC-19-27 to -30 totaling 516m) drilled from the surface out of 32 RC holes totaling now 3551m.

 

Other results of the Diamond drill (ZG-19-02, -03, -05 and -07) and RC program (ZG-RC-19-29 and -30) are pending and will be disclosed once the results are received, compiled and verified.

 

The assay results reported herein are provided in Tables 2 and 3 below include the following highlights:

 

Highlights:

 

  • 6 m at 3,547.33 g/t Ag in the RC hole ZG-RC-19-27 from 113 m to 119 m.
  • 14 m at 915.46 g/t Ag in the diamond hole ZG-19-04 from 109 m to 123 m.
  • 7 m at 1,278.80 g/t Ag in the diamond hole ZG-19-04 from 165.5 m to 172.5 m.
  • 2.5 m at 1,178.1 g/t Ag in the diamond hole ZG-19-01 from 213 m to 215.5 m.
  • 11 m at 341.46 g/t Ag in the RC hole ZG-RC-19-28 from 41 m to 52 m.

The silver mineralization (Figure 2; Figure 3) occurs in veinlets filled by quartz cement and sulphide mineralization consisting of sphalerite, galena and pyrite encountered in an altered sandstone and at the contact with the rhyolite unit.

 

The ongoing drilling program focused on the eastern zone which correspond to a virgin zone (without underground workings). This zone cover an area of 200m x 150m (Figure 1) that includes several mineralized envelopes mostly oriented E-W with a vertical extent mineralization at 185m below the surface intersected recently by hole ZG-19-01.

 

“We are more than satisfied with these positive results of the ongoing drilling program on the eastern zone never exploited before. The presence of the mineralization near the surface confirmed by the trenches results (Trench02 11m at 130.9 g/t Ag) and mineralization at depth for at least 185m below the surface convince us to do more works to get the full extent of this virgin zone”. Said Noureddine Mokaddem, Chairman & CEO of Maya Gold & Silver.

The ongoing diamond drill program designed to get more details on the continuity of the mineralized envelopes that should increase the quality and the confidence on the mineral resources estimate.

The assay results are for an interval of 0.5 and 1 meter sample. The sample lengths reported here are between 70% and 75% of true horizontal widths. The grades herein are reported as uncapped values. Minimum interval length is 3 meters over 50 g/t.

 

Quality Control / Quality Assurance

 

The direction and inclination of the DDH and RC drill holes were oriented in a way to target perpendicular to mineralization. The RC samples were split at the mine site. After drying, each sample was divided in two parts 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 the Afrilab laboratory. The remaining material is kept for archive in the core shack.

 

The drill core was sawn with one half of the sawn core placed in a plastic bag with the sample tag and sealed, while the second half was returned to the core box for storage on site. 

 

At Afrilab the RC and the ½ core samples were crushed to have d80 passing 2mm and afterward separated with a Jones riffle splitter to have 100 grams which is pulverized to have a pulp d80 of 75 microns Multi acid digestion and Atomic Absorption reading for Cu, Pb and Zn grade determination. Fire assay is used for Ag. The standards and blanks used are in line with expected results.
