VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 29, 2021 /CNW/ – GR Silver Mining Ltd. (“GR Silver Mining” or the “Company”) (TSXV: GRSL) (OTCQB: GRSLF) (FRANKFURT: GPE) – announces the discovery of a gold-silver rich mineralized zone and the presence of narrow epithermal veining resulting from the initial reconnaissance drilling at Loma Dorada, within the Company’s Plomosas Project, in Sinaloa State, Mexico.
- The Loma Dorada target is currently the subject of reconnaissance drilling, testing a new geological model of NW trending, Au-Ag rich veining – a possible extension 1.2 km along strike from La Colorada
- Individual epithermal veins returned attractive gold and silver results, including:
- 1.0 m at 5.23 g/t Au and 166 g/t Ag (LDSP21-007)
- Extensive iron oxide rich zone indicates pervasive alteration with broad low-grade gold mineralization over a 1.5 km x 0.5 km area, defining the Loma Dorada target (Figure 1)
- Surface channel sampling has identified multiple veins on surface displaying gold and silver mineralization including:
- 1.8 m at 1.3 g/t Au
- 11.7 m at 0.3 g/t Au, including 1.3 m at 1.1 g/t Au
- Ongoing reconnaissance drilling continues to define extensions of the wide mineralized zone, with potential to define drilling targets along strike and down dip, including:
- 5.9 m at 0.5 g/t Au, 0.8% Pb and 1.0% Zn (LDS21-03)
GR Silver Mining President and CEO, Marcio Fonseca commented “The first drill results from our Loma Dorada target provide significant encouragement for us to continue prospecting in this area, with the objective of defining new high-grade zones within our Plomosas Project. The previously announced surface drilling campaign is targeting new zones where geological reconnaissance identified areas to drill test new gold-silver rich epithermal veins. The Company will continue reconnaissance drilling in Loma Dorada to extend the mineralization and improve the understanding of geological controls on this promising area.”
The Company is advancing exploration on multiple targets, as part of its previously announced surface diamond drilling program. High-angle NW and NE trending structures that are potential hosts to low to intermediate sulphidation epithermal systems, are the key targets at Loma Dorada, Trampolín, El Saltito, Plomosas Sur and the GAP Area. An additional 35 targets are being reviewed at the Plomosas Project (which includes San Marcial and La Trinidad) for follow-up drilling in recently mapped veins, such as El Ranchito y Las Cuevas (Figure 1).
Loma Dorada Mineralization
Loma Dorada is one of GR Silver’s high priority targets for reconnaissance drilling. The Loma Dorada target is characterized by a prominent 1.5 km x 0.5 km iron-rich soil color anomaly and broad zone of hydrothermal alteration (Figure 1) associated with intense oxidization and argillic alteration, as well as Au and Ag geochemical anomalies.
The main geological concept being tested at Loma Dorada is a set of NNW-SSE to N-S trending veins which are subparallel to the main Ag-Au mineralized vein systems in other parts of the Plomosas Project. Frequently, the veins have a brecciated character with sulphide-poor, Au-bearing hematite-silica rich cement or quartz veins of polymetallic Ag-Au-Pb-Zn type, with textures such as comb, lattice and bladed silica/quartz. Ongoing drilling is delineating low grade Ag-Au mineralized zones of low to intermediate sulphidation epithermal characteristics close to surface (Table 1).
The Loma Dorada veins are potentially related to the northern extension of the San Juan – La Colorada vein system, located 1.2 km to the SE (Figure 2). Additionally, the extension of the La Colorada high-grade Au vein, which returned 9.0 m at 1.82 g/t Au and 710 g/t Ag, including 0.7 m at 18.8 g/t Au and 8,519 g/t Ag (LCS21-04) (see News Release dated June 10, 2021), has been traced further to the NW and is currently being tested with a series of drill holes. Historical small scale underground activity in nearby third-party concessions provides further encouragement for the potential of these veins on surface.
Significant results from the initial drilling at Loma Dorada are shown in Table 1, below.
