CMC Metals Ltd. Identifies High Grade Silver-Lead-Zinc mineralization in the Former Waste Pile and Further Confirms High Grade in the footwall of the TM Pit Main Zone
Vancouver, BC.: CMC Metals Ltd. – (“the Company”) (TSX-V: CMB) is pleased to announce assay results from recent channel sampling across the waste pile and a channel sample in the TM pit Zone at the Company’s 100% owned Silver Hart Project in Yukon, Canada.
Michael Scholz, Chairman of the Company noted, “Our previous announcement indicated significant high grade silver-lead-zinc mineralization had been identified in three trenches in the central to northern portion of the proposed TM Pit. This channel in the southern section of the pit further indicates that mineralization in this area is extensive, extends into the footwall of the zone and potentially has a great lateral extent than previously known.”
Mr. Scholz added, “Identifying high grade mineralization in the waste pile area will potentially provide us with a lot of material that is ready to bag and sell into the market. This is expected to help us fund future exploration efforts at Silver Hart. Furthermore, it indicates to us that as this material came from the historic adit we need to take a closer look at that work to further expand our knowledge of the Main Zone at Silver Hart.”
Key Highlights from the Channel Samples included:
TM Pit – Main Zone: 26 meters grading 258.6 g/t silver 10.16% zinc and 6,189.6 ppm lead including 15 meters grading 366.9 g/t silver, 16.74% lead and 13.15% zinc.
Waste Pit – Channels: 60 meters of sampling graded 565.6 g/t silver and 4.59% zinc, including 22 meters of lead greater than 10,000ppm with values ranging from 2-19.09%.
Kevin Brewer, President and CEO notes, “When I started to walk around the Silver Hart site it was obvious to me that there was a lot of mineralized material throughout what is deemed as the ‘waste pile’ area. This material came from the former adits. We focussed on sampling the larger pile but there is a lot more material in the area of unknown thickness and areal extent. This is very exciting for us as what was initially considered as waste is potentially high grade material that may be economic to bag and transport to market. I will be focussing early field work in the 2020 season on evaluating all of that material in the waste pile area through a test pitting program to determine the thickness, grade and tonnage of the entire waste pile. If the mineralization is similar to that of results we achieved this season we will then send it to market.”
Brewer added, “The additional positive results from our fourth sampling of the footwall material across the TM zone are exciting. These samples are from an area immediately proximal to where CMC appears to have removed material in previous bulk samples and did not include the high grade vein zone. The material was limited to the footwall area of the deposit. Therefore this continues to confirm my thesis that material in the footwall is potentially of sufficient grade and width to be surface mined along with the high grade silver vein in the TM Main Zone over widths in excess of 10 meters.”
Assays were completed by Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories Canada Ltd. and quality control and sampling supervision at Silver Hart was provided by Longford Exploration Services Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C. who are a fully independent geological consulting company.
