San Marco Discovers High Grade Copper – Silver At Chunibas; Samples up to 5.9% Copper and 66 g/t Silver.

San Marco’s CEO, Bob Willis stated: “This most recent discovery is further evidence of the regional implications of this very large mineralized system. Our recent drilling at the Santa Fe target at Chunibas discovered wide intervals of gold mineralization in hydrothermal breccias. Our newest discovery is primarily copper and silver mineralization in a different geological environment, over an area, which is open in all directions. While sampling is, by necessity, confined to outcrop exposures it is important to note that mineralization has been discovered in most exposures within a large and growing area. Every effort was made to generate representative rock chip samples of entire individual outcrop exposures. There is no evidence that this zone was previously explored or sampled. Management considers this new discovery highly significant and is following up on it aggressively.”

Prospero provides drilling update for El Petate Project Identifies Three Zones for Deeper Drilling

Tawn Albinson, the President of Prospero Silver commented: “Petate is the second project of three selected for first-pass drilling as agreed with our strategic partner Fortuna Silver. Under our arrangement with Fortuna, when we have completed drilling three projects, they have the right to select one for a joint venture. We are happy with the results at El Petate. In particular, holes 1, 9 and 11 have highlighted interesting grades over intervals of up to 24.9m downhole, although with unknown strike extent, indicating prospective deeper targets for a follow-up program. We are strongly aligned with Fortuna to drill as many of Prospero’s projects as possible, hence the plan to mobilise onto the next target, Pachuca SE, as soon as possible — hopefully in January. The Pachuca SE target lies about 20km southeast of the Vizcaina vein, one of the largest silver-rich epithermal veins in the world.”
