New Pacific Continues to Intersect Multiple Broad Intervals of Silver Mineralization at Silver Sand Project, Bolivia

 

 

 

 

 

New Pacific Metals Corp. (TSX-V: NUAG) (OTCQX: NUPMF) is pleased to announce assay results from 75 drill holes from its resource definition drilling program at its wholly-owned Silver Sand Project, Department of Potosí, Bolivia.  

In summary, drilling continues to intersect broad intervals of vein and fracture controlled, near surface, silver mineralization with results from this program ranging from approximately 50 to 200 metres thick and returning average silver values from 33 to 289g/t.  Within these broad intervals, narrower zones of higher grade silver occurs commonly from 2.5 to +10m wide with average values over those widths of up to 1,035g/t.

Highlights of significant drill intersections are summarized as follows (for a detailed list, please refer to Table-1 – Composited Drill Intersections of Mineralization below):

(Based on the current understanding of the relationship between drill hole direction and the mineralized structures it is estimated that true width of the mineralization will approximate 80% of the down hole interval length.  Please refer to Table-1 – Composited Drill Intersections of Mineralization below for details.)
 

Detail

 

Following the acquisition of Silver Sand Project in 2017, the Company has completed several discovery and definition drill campaigns on the project.  In addition to 195 holes for a total of 55,010m completed in 2018 exploration campaign, 162 drill holes for a total of 35,414m in the core area of Silver Sand have been completed to date since April 2019.  The Company released the results from the initial 60 holes on June 6, August 6 and August 27, 2019.  This news release publishes results from the next 75 drill holes (Table 1).  Results from the remaining 27 holes are pending and will be released upon receipt of the assay information.

The aim of the 2019 resource definition program is to provide detailed geological information on the currently defined core of the Silver Sand project.  The holes were designed to provide drill coverage using a 25 metre-centered drill pattern in order to confirm the continuity of the silver mineralization.  The majority of the holes are oriented at azimuths of 60 degrees with dips of -45 degrees, that is, normal to the strike and dip of the previously defined mineralized structures.

Several resource expansion holes were collared outside of the previously defined mineralized zone and intersected significant mineralization.  For example, hole DSS645005 was collared to the south of Silver Sand at Section 6450, and intersected a broad zone of mineralization returning 208.07m @ 73g/t Ag from 27.1m downhole within which higher grade intervals occur including 3.71m @ 513g/t Ag (from 86.57m to 90.28m), and 24.26m @ 270g/t Ag (from 180.74m to 205m), indicating mineralization is open to the west.
 

 

Snake Hole Prospect

 

The Company has identified several high priority targets on the Silver Sand property package, of which, the Snake Hole Prospect has been drill tested and assays are pending.
 

 

Future Work

 

 

The Silver Sand Project development team is currently finishing the last remaining planned drill holes from the 2019 program with two drilling crews.  Other activities remaining include geological logging and sampling of completed holes, data analysis and various QA/QC initiatives in preparation for the inaugural NI 43-101 resource estimate in Q1 2020.
 

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

 

 

HQ-size drill core samples from altered and mineralized intervals were split into halves by diamond saw, with an average sample length of between one to one and half metres at the Company’s core processing facility located in Betanzos, a small town located 20 kilometres from the project site.  Half core samples are stored in a secure core storage facility in Betanzos for future reference, and the other half core samples are shipped in securely sealed bags to ALS Global in Oruro, Bolivia for preparation, and ALS Global in Lima, Peru for geochemical analysis.  All samples are first analyzed by a multi-element ICP package (ALS code ME-MS41) with ore grade over limits for silver, lead and zinc further analyzed using ALS code OG46.  Further silver over limits are analyzed by gravimetric analysis (ALS code of GRA21).

A standard quality assurance and quality control protocol was employed to monitor the quality of sample preparation and analysis.  Standards of certified reference materials and blanks were inserted in normal core sample sequences prior to shipment to lab at a ratio of 20:1 (i.e., every 20 samples contain at least one standard sample and one blank sample).  Duplicate samples of coarse rejects at a ratio of 20:1 will be sent to a second internationally accredited lab for check analysis.  The assay results of QAQC samples of standards and blanks did not show any significant bias of analysis or contamination during sample preparation.

Technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Alex Zhang, P. Geo., Vice President of Exploration, who is a Qualified Person for the purposes of NI 43-101.

Notes:                    g/t = grams per metric tonne.

The table above is intended to show highlights of the drilling program only.  The intercepts shown are a weighted average of the sample lengths and grades of all of the samples within that intercept and may include some samples with grades less than 30 g/t silver.

Intersections may contain samples less than 30 g/t silver between higher grade subintervals.

Intervals are drill core length in meters.  True width of mineralization zones is estimated at about 80% of drill intervals based on current understanding of the relationship between drill direction and the mineralized structures.
