U.S. Precious Metals Releases Gold and Silver Results From Independent Assayer
U.S. Precious Metals, Inc. (OTCBB: USPR) (“USPR”), through its CEO M. Jack Kugler, today released assay data from Chris Christopherson Inc. (an independent testing laboratory in Smelterville, Idaho), for the gold and silver values from an intercept from drill hole number 3. CEO Kugler further indicated that the assay results were quite encouraging. Drill hole number 3, drilled adjacent to drill holes number 1 and 2, apparently intersected another mineralized vein. The first three holes of the drilling campaign were drilled outside the Main Zone and in a location where surface assays were reported at 0.062 opt gold or $56 per ton, at current metal values.
The table below provides the assay results for a portion of the intersected vein.
Au opt Ag opt Verification/Re-Test SAMPLE # (Gold oz/ton) (Silver oz/ton) Au Ag --------- --------------- --------------- --------------- -------------- LS08-3-43 0.045 6.96 0.040 6.88 LS08-3-44 0.104 7.90 0.106 7.85 LS08-3-45 0.124 3.38 0.116 4.02 LS08-3-46 0.070 6.17 0.060 6.16 LS08-3-47 0.019 0.40 LS08-3-48 0.005 0.68 LS08-3-49 0.004 0.36 LS08-3-50 0.004 0.20 LS08-3-51 0.015 2.19 0.012 2.02 LS08-3-52 0.021 1.08 LS08-3-53 0.009 0.43 LS08-3-54 0.005 1.08 LS08-3-55 0.020 3.00 0.025 3.08 LS08-3-56 0.060 4.98 0.049 5.06 LS08-3-57 0.015 1.59
Sample numbers LS08-3-43 to LS08-3-46 have a weighted average of 0.0831 opt gold and 6.165 opt silver, a combined worth of $185 per ton. The copper values have not yet been received; however, we expect ore grade copper values and will provide the assays once they are reported by the independent lab.
In addition, drill hole number 1 intersected 16 feet of 0.0915 opt gold, worth $85 per ton, 0.345 opt silver, worth $5.85 per ton, and anomalous copper, values within the same interval. Drill hole number 2 intersected 6 feet of disseminated native copper; assays reports will be released once completed.
The drilling campaign was initiated in early February in southern Mexico and is now being expanded into other areas of the 37,000 acre property.
