Puma Exploration Announces Initial Results from Nicholas-Denys Silver Project

Puma Exploration has proclaimed the initial exploration results from its summer drilling campaign at the Nicholas-Denys silver project in New Brunswick. The company took grab samples from the mineralized zones, which showed high-grade content of up to 17.4 g/t gold and 1,330 g/t silver.

This primary sampling and mapping program targeting the well-known showings was to find the attributes of the key features of the discovery model that was developed on the Shaft and Haché silver lenses at the property.

Five showings containing silver, lead and zinc is situated between Henry and Haché lenses and have been visited again, sampled and mapped before the beginning of the phase I trenching program. This latest data along with the targets that were outlined already by the geophysical and geochemical survey has been employed to describe the location and size of the trenches.

Puma Exploration’s Project Geologist has commented that the re-examining the former showings along with the latest silver discovery model, made the company to look the property in a different way and to locate the regions with high discovery potential. The high-grade gold and silver formation cutting the huge sulphide lenses is important to the property.

The company is performing a main stripping and trenching program at the Nicholas-Denys. It will examine the initial target, which is a coincident geochemical and geophysical silver-lead-zinc soil anomaly over 3.1 km strike length. Additional targets contain 12 geophysical anomalies in total, which were discovered by the InfiniTEM 2010 ground survey that encloses 3.5 km of the favorable structural characteristics to the Henry from the Shaft lenses. Majority of these geophysical anomalies are connected with the surface soil geochemical anomalies. Puma has dug 2,000 m of trenches and the program is widened for a further 3,000 m. It has sent samples to the lab for examining the base and precious metals.
