ECU Silver Mining has announced the results from a new vein developed on the Nazas property. It has encountered 6.18 g/t gold and 2,755 g/t silver. The property is under option to ECU Silver with a possibility to purchase 100% interest by expending totally US$1,100,000 in the next two years.
The company executed a bulk testing for mineralized material at the open pit mining and discovered a 2 m broad vein. This vein related structure follows along the strike for more than 500 m. Firstly, the company has tested a bench of 9 m height and encountered 0.35 g/t gold and 68 g/t silver over 19 samples including 0.84 g/t gold and 598 g/t silver. Secondly, ECU Silver has examined a 3 m bench and assayed 0.72 g/t gold and 241 g/t silver from 33 samples and 6.18 g/t gold and 2,755 g/t silver.
Based on these initial results, ECU Silver plans to continue opening the vein laterally and at depth and also analyze other analogous structures at the property.
The drilling program conducted at the deep seated massive sulphides has not progressed because of some mechanical problems but the drilling has recommenced after the rectification of the problem. ERSA laboratory in Mexico has assayed the samples.
