SilverCrest Continues to Expand Santa Elena Deposit; Another New Discovery and More High Grade Intercepts, 25.8m @ 1.24 gpt Au and 187.6 gpt Ag Including 1.9m @ 2.34 gpt Au and 1,281.9 gpt
SilverCrest Mines Inc. is pleased to announce results of further delineation drilling at the Santa Elena Mine in Sonora, Mexico. One hundred and eleven holes of a revised planned 114 holes have been completed to re-categorize Indicated and Inferred Resources to Probable Reserves and expand current underground Resources. This drill program continues to be extremely successful and several of the most recent holes have identified additional bonanza grade (as defined below) intercepts and two new zones (El Cholugo and El Cholugo Dos) that lie below and are sub-parallel to the Main Mineralized Zone currently being mined. All holes included in this program will assist with resource confirmation and reclassification, the results of which will be included in the upcoming Pre-Feasibility Study for the Santa Elena Expansion Project.
