Vancouver, British Columbia / March 20, 2020 – Arizona Silver Exploration Inc. (the “Company” or “Arizona Silver”) (TSX-V: AZS) (OTCQB: AZASF) is pleased to provide an update on the 2020 drill program currently underway at the 100% owned Philadelphia high-grade gold-silver vein property.
Arizona Silver Exploration decided to share some good news in light of the current global situation. Drilling has been unhampered by the virus and continues to move forward in a timely manner.
Arizona Silver has completed 8 of the 11 RC holes previously permitted on our 100% owned Philadelphia property, as outlined in the press release March 9th, and drilling is ongoing. We are encouraged with our findings as we move along strike of the high-grade vein system. We are currently drilling over 1000 feet away from the initial holes drilled. We continue to see visible coarse gold in the cuttings from most of the drill holes completed to date, and some at -greater depths than prior holes. We have increased sample size at the drill rig and initiated a 1 kilogram metallic screen assaying protocol on all drill samples which contained visible gold, and all immediately adjacent drill intervals. We have also submitted and Request for Proposal to two metallurgical laboratories to complete gravity concentration followed by bottle roll cyanidation test and tail assays to determine total gold content in representative splits from samples containing visible gold. Visible gold particles are up to 1.25 mm in size present challenges in standard fire assay laboratories sampling protocols. As mentioned in the Feb 18th news release, the program continues to be in compliance with current health and safety regulations.
Arizona Silver Exploration will continue to update shareholders as information becomes available. The Company is very fortunate to have a healthy treasury in order to continue exploration and advance the Philadelphia project.
Greg Hahn, VP Exploration, and a Certified Professional Geologist (#7122) is the Qualified Person under NI43-101 responsible for preparing and reviewing the data contained in this press release.
