Silvercorp Intercepts 33.29 Metres True Width Grading 151 g/t Silver, 0.68 Percent Lead, 1.51 Percent Zinc, and 0.30 Percent Tin at Its GC Project

Silvercorp Metals Inc. (TSX:SVM)(NYSE:SVM) report results from the ongoing infill and step-out drilling exploration program at the GC silver-lead-zinc project located in Guangdong Province, China including the discovery of several new mineralized veins.

 

Highlights of selected intercepts and discoveries:

 

 

 

—  Hole CK2102 intercepted 49.65 metres (“m”), 33.29m true width at the -9m

elevation of vein V2 grading 151 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver (“Ag”),

0.68% lead (“Pb”), 1.51% zinc (“Zn”) and 0.30% tin (“Sn”), including an

interval of 4.81m, 3.42m true width at the -23m elevation grading 525

g/t Ag, 2.06% Pb, 1.99% Zn and 0.87% Sn;

 

—  Hole CK1831 intercepted 3.85m, 3.50m true width at the 39m elevation of

vein V2 grading 460 g/t Ag, 1.20% Pb, 2.95% Zn and 0.86% Sn, including

an interval of 1.30m, 1.18m true width at the 39m elevation grading 923

g/t Ag, 0.21% Pb, 1.35% Zn and 1.84% Sn;

 

—  Hole CK2410 intercepted 3.88m, 3.76m true width at the 107m elevation of

vein V15-1 grading 609 g/t Ag, 0.41% Pb, 0.56% Zn and 0.03% Sn,

including an interval of 1.16m, 1.13m true width at the 107m elevation

grading 698 g/t Ag, 0.63% Pb, 0.79% Zn and 0.03% Sn;

 

—  Hole CK10450 intercepted 7.84m, 5.76m true width of vein V28 at the 97m

elevation grading 359 g/t Ag, 1.55% Pb, 1.09% Zn and 0.03% Sn; and

 

—  Hole CK2001 intercepted 3.15m, 2.76m true width at the 47m elevation of

vein V9W-2 grading 441 g/t Ag, 3.29% Pb, 5.71% Zn and 0.16% Sn,

including an interval of 1.40m, 1.23m true width at the 46m elevation

grading 661 g/t Ag, 4.80% Pb, 5.98% Zn and 0.27%Sn.

 

—  Discovery of new veins V25, V26, V28 as well several other new veins

(referred to as “New” in tables 1 and 2 below) which have not yet been

named.

 

 

 

The purpose of the 2012 GC project surface and underground drilling program was to upgrade the classification of the known resource blocks and further define and extend known vein structures in preparation for mining in 2013.

 

Using two underground drill rigs to achieve a drill spacing of approximately 25m by 25m, drilling of V2 was focused on an area 300m in length from mine section lines 10 through 30 and 150m in vertical depth from the 100m elevation down to the -75m elevation. Access to V2 at the 20m elevation was gained via the main ramp and existing cross-cuts. In March 2013 Silvercorp expects to have an additional access point to V2 when the exploration ramp reaches the -50 m elevation. Present drill results (as evidenced by drill hole CK2102) indicate that V2 is a thick, continuous zone that would be amenable to bulk tonnage mining. In addition to its thickness, V2 also contains high-grade silver and tin mineralization. For example drill hole CK1831 intercepted 3.50m true width grading 460 g/t Ag, 1.20% Pb, 2.95% Zn and 0.86% Sn at the 39m elevation. As noted in the Company’s news release of November 19, 2012, the presence of tin is expected to enhance the economics of the GC project.

 

Drilling of the V9 vein group (V9, V9-1, V9W1 and V9W-2 veins) was conducted in an area 400m in length from mine section lines 14 through 32 and 150m in vertical depth between the 0m elevation and the 150m elevation using three underground drill rigs. Access to the V9 vein group was achieved via the exploration ramp with existing drifts and cross-cuts at elevations of 150m, 100m, 50m and 0m.

 

In addition to the V2 and the V9 vein groups, drilling has also further defined vein groups V5, V6, V8, V13, V14 and V15. Veins V25, V26, and V28 are new discoveries. Assay results have been received for 97 drill holes totaling 7,037m of drilling. Additional assays results for twelve holes are pending. In 2013, Silvercorp plans to continue with its infill and step-out drilling program at the GC project and currently has five underground drill rigs and two surface drill rigs on site.
