Drill Contract Signed for Medicine and Silver Queen Projects
RENO, NV, June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Silver Reserve has entered into a contract with Christiansen Drilling, Inc. of Ely, Nevada.
The Company plans to carry out up to 50,000 feet of drilling on the Medicine Project under this contract. The objective is to expand on the 350,000 tons of drill indicated resource with an average grade of 2.5 ounce silver, 5% lead, 8% zinc and 12% barite. The indicated resource was not drilled off beyond 100 feet of depth and is believed to extend deeper into the sulphide zone. The mineralized zone extends beyond the area drilled, into claims controlled by the Company. The operator at the time of drilling was looking for leachable material and dropped the property when recovery grade and silver price proved it uneconomical. The opportunity is present for expansion of the resource into a substantial open pit mine. Drilling will commence in July, 2008 following completion of the first drill program on the Silver Queen Project.
The Company plans to carry out 20,000 feet of drilling on the Silver Queen Project to trace the extension along strikes and down dip from the Mohawk and Silver Queen mines. A newly discovered surface anomaly with significant silver, lead and zinc grades and measuring 600 feet wide by 1000 feet long is a primary drill target for a new discovery on this claim group. The initial drill program of 7,000 feet has commenced. 4000 feet will be drilled to test the anomaly and 3000 feet will be drilled to test the vein extension down dip and along strike from the Mohawk Mine where historical ore reserve reports show 532,900 ounces of silver with lead and zinc credits are unmined.
Silver Reserve is an exploration stage mining company. The Company has a portfolio of 15 silver and base metal projects in the State of Nevada, USA. The properties are located in the counties of Esmeralda, Mineral, Nye, Lyon, Humboldt and Elko. Silver Reserve also owns a 250 ton per day mill facility at Mina, Nevada. A year long evaluation of the Projects has identified the Medicine and Silver Queen Projects with the potential for the earliest development of sizable resources. The Company will concentrate its efforts on these two Projects.
