Bayhorse Silver Inc. (the "Company" or "Bayhorse") reports that it has accessed the first stope at the Bayhorse Silver Mine, East Central Oregon, USA. American Mining and Tunneling, its underground safety operations contractor, has already stockpiled approximately 100 tons of mineralized material from the stope as it continues the safety work program.
Photos and video of recent work and samples of stope mineralization can be viewed on the Company's website at: http://www.bayhorsesilver.com/media/muckeratwork.mov and at:
The mineralized material from the Intermediate Level is currently being stockpiled outside the adit. Random mineralized samples have been submitted for assay from both the stope and the stockpile to Met-Solve Mineral Laboratories. Excellent examples of mineralized stockworking are evident in the samples.
The mineralized material will also be subject to additional Dense Media and Ore-Sorting analysis and the results will be compared to the already conducted tests using reject material from the 1984 mining program to determine the best optimization of mineralization upgrading equipment.
The Company intends to remove the substantial amount of the broken mineralized material that remains in the stopes from the 1984 mining program as each stope is accessed and made safe for continued exploration.
