Bunker Hill Mining Intercepts Near Surface High Grade Silver
TORONTO - Bunker Hill Mining Corp. has intercepted high grade silver mineralization in the UTZ area of the Bunker Hill Mine, with a silver equivalent grade of 1,206 g/t AgEq. This area is near surface, in close proximity to existing infrastructure, and located within a larger mineralized zone which was historically thought to not contain high-grade silver.
Sam Ash, CEO, said, “The presence of high-grade silver in the upper areas of the Bunker Hill Mine is very encouraging. Furthermore, it is within the PEA study area and has the potential to be mined within Phase 1 of our restart program, which could allow us to immediately crystalize the value. Analysis is underway to follow up and further explore for nearby high-grade silver mineralization.”
The diamond drilling program used HQ-size core. Bunker Hill followed standard QA/QC practices to ensure the integrity of the core and sample preparation through to delivery of the samples to the assay lab. The drill core was stored in a secure facility, photographed, logged and sampled based on lithologic and mineralogical interpretations. Standards of certified reference materials, field duplicates and blanks were inserted as samples shipped with the core samples to the lab.
