Northair Intersects 39.3 Metres of 205.3 g/t Silver at La Cigarra Project
VANCOUVER, BC - International Northair Mines Ltd. reported assays results from three diamond drill holes recently completed in the San Gregorio Zone at its La Cigarra silver project, located in north central Mexico.
"The results of this recent drilling successfully extended the strike length of the San Gregorio Zone by 50 metres and confirmed high grade mineralization at depth, with the zone remaining open along strike and down dip," said Fred Hewett, President & CEO of Northair. "Hole CC-11-009 is the deepest hole drilled to date on the property and has confirmed significant silver mineralization over 150 metres below surface. Hole CC-11-008 confirmed the footwall portion of the zone and returned significant gold values - providing evidence of a potentially economic gold zone. Hole-CC-007 has confirmed the extension of the zone to the southeast, which remains fully open."
Northair is currently expecting assays from two additional holes drilled in the San Gregorio Zone. While the Company awaits the assays from these holes, drilling continues at the Las Carolinas Zone located 1,000 metres southeast of the San Gregorio Zone. Four holes are immediately planned at Las Carolinas to test along strike and down dip from hole CC-11-005, which returned 48.05 metres of 140.6 g/t silver. The results from the current drill program clearly demonstrate that significant further drilling at La Cigarra is warranted. The Company plans to continue with an aggressive open-ended diamond drill program to further test the San Gregorio and the Las Carolinas zones; and initiate the first diamond drilling of the La Borracha Zone. Holes CC-11-007, CC-11-008 and CC-11-009 were drilled in the San Gregorio Zone to test for continuity of the silver bearing zone along strike and to depth. Hole CC-11-007 was drilled on section 1+50S as a 50 meter step out to the southeast from past drilling. The hole intersected a broad mineralized zone highlighted by two intervals of silver-bearing druzy quartz veining and stockwork associated with dyking similar to that noted elsewhere in the zone. This hole has extended the zone 50 meters to the southeast where it remains open along strike. Hole CC-11-008 was drilled below reverse circulation drill hole CRC-10-011 on section 0+50N to test for continuity of the silver bearing zone to the northwest. This hole was collared within the zone and therefore did not intersect the upper portion of the zone seen along strike to the southeast. The hole intersected druzy quartz veining and stockwork in predominantly bedded siltstones and argillites containing significant silver mineralization in its upper section. In the lower part of the hole a 22.60 meter interval returned elevated gold values including a 10.65 meter interval at the end of sampling which graded 0.303 g/t gold. Similar elevated gold values were also noted in multiple intervals in hole CRC-10-011, including 19.81 meters grading 0.305 g/t gold and 3.04 meters (end of the hole) grading 0.221 g/t gold. This silver and gold zone remains open on strike to the northwest. Hole CC-11-009 was drilled below CC-11-002 on section 0+00 to test for continuity of the silver bearing zone to depth. This hole was drilled as a 50 meter step-out down dip from CC-11-002, and returned multiple zones with significant druzy quartz veining and stockwork associated with dyking in siltstones between 68.55 and 187.5 meters. The zone remains open to depth, and is the deepest mineralization encountered to date on the property.
