Avino Silver & Gold Mines has reported the additional drilling results from the San Gonzalo zone, which is located on Avino’s property in the northeastern part of Durango in Mexico.
The company has intersected 1.04 g/t gold, 2441 g/t silver, 17300 ppm lead and 12300 ppm zinc over 312 m in hole SG -11-12, 0.1 g/t gold, 11 g/t silver, 217 ppm lead and 399 ppm zinc over 345 m in hole SG-11-13, 1.32 g/t gold, 216 g/t silver, 1601 ppm lead and 4124 ppm zinc over 331 in hole SG-11-14, 1.16 g/t gold, 141 g/t silver, 6570 ppm lead and 11856 ppm zinc over 363 m in hole SG-11-15. Hole SG-11-16 did not encounter any significant values.
Longyear 44 core rig of Avino has been used to drill holes at thin wall NQ diameter. The company has sawed the core at its storage facility. Durango-based Inspectorate Labs workers will collect the sealed bags, containing vein samples, at the mine units.
An atomic absorption finish and 30 g fire assay methods are employed for analyzing gold. Analysis of lead, silver and zinc is being conducted which belongs to a part of a multi-element inductively coupled argon plasma (ICP) package. Assay methods using gravimetric and fire assay were done to re-examine silver.
The company is continuously developing the mine. An underground electric drill rig is being acquired by Avino for using in the close spaced drill program of the SG vein.
