These assay results support the findings reported in our press release of 23 January 2017, that the Africana vein contains significant zones of high-grade silver mineralisation over respectable widths. The Company’s geologists will use this data to prioritise projects for potential development and to help identify optimum areas for future drilling with a view to delineating a compliant mineral resource.
The La Africana project is a “brownfield” site comprising the small-scale and past-producing Africana Mine, situated within Pánfilo Natera which is an emerging mining district known to host several large silver and base metal deposits, approximately 50 kilometres south of the State capital, Zacatecas.
Arian Silver also reports that, further to the Company’s press release dated 19 December 2016 regarding the Company’s exclusivity agreement with Tierra Nuevo Mining Limited (“TNM”) over the Noche Buena gold and silver tailings project in Mexico, the period of exclusivity has been extended by a further 60 days to 26 April 2017 at no additional cost whilst the final results of the metallurgical testwork are awaited and evaluated.
Jim Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Arian Silver commented: “We remain excited by the prospects of our existing portfolio of silver projects in Mexico and are committed to assessing the viability of their development. We are also keen to reach a definitive conclusion on the advancement of the Noche Buena tailings project as soon as possible once we have received the final test results. Meanwhile, we are working to identify new opportunities which we believe would add shareholder value, and we shall report on further progress in due course.”
Arian Silver owns mineral concessions over approximately 1,500 hectares in the heart of the Zacatecas mining district, which includes the Company’s wholly-owned San Celso project.
