Maya Gold & Silver Inc. Announces 2020 Zgounder Silver Mine Exploration Program
The Board of Directors of the Company recently approved a combined exploration and development program, which will include both Diamond Drilling (“DDH”) and Reverse Circulation Drilling (”RC”). The objective is to deliver value to shareholders through the drill bit and to build on the previous high-grade drill results reported on May 11th, 2020 (https://mayagoldsilver.com/press-release/maya-intersects-929-g-t-ag-over-5m-near-surface-at-its-zgounder-mine-east-zone/), which included intersections at surface of 5 meters at 929 g/t Ag, 5 meters at 592 g/t Ag, 8 meters at 339 g/t Ag and 3.5 meters at 614 g/t Ag.
An initial 10,000 meters is immediately planned with an additional 5,000 meters before year end. This compares with only 5,385 meters drilled at the Zgounder Silver Mine in 2019. The goal is to increase and further define resources from the east zone of the deposit, as well as to confirm and define the continuous mineralisation at deeper levels from the current underground mine.
The detailed target zones and drilling programs are still being reviewed by the Company as it mobilises to start drilling. “We are excited about the exploration program and we are confident in the potential for additional high-grade results” commented Benoit La Salle, CEO of Maya, “It will give us better visibility of the extension of the deposit and is the first step to unlocking significant value for shareholders.”
