Endeavour Silver intersects 19,390 g/t Ag at Guanacevi
(Kitco News) - Endeavour Silver (TSX: EDR, NYSE: EXK) announced Tuesday that it has intersected high grade silver-gold mineralization in its 2021 exploration drill program to expand the El Curso orebody at the Guanacevi mine in Durango State, Mexico.
Highlights from the latest drill results include 4.29 gpt gold and 3,464 gpt silver for 3,764 gpt AgEq over a 2.6 m true width, including 25.7 gpt gold and 19,390 gpt silver for 21,189 gpt AgEq over 0.3 m in drill hole UCM-50.
Luis Castro, VP of Exploration, commented, "We continue to intersect excellent drill results as we step out from the current margins of the El Curso orebody. There remains an additional 100 m to drill until we connect El Curso with the Milache orebody to the west, and there is a similar gap to fill to connect El Curso with the Porvenir Cuatro orebody (previously mined) to the east."
The company anticipates that Porvenir Cuatro, El Curso and Milache will all connect to form one continuous orebody over a 1,500 m length by 400 m vertical extent. This would make it comparable to the original Porvenir Norte orebody which supported production at Guanacevi for over 14 years, Castro added.
Endeavour Silver is a mid-tier precious metals mining company that owns and operates three high-grade, underground, silver-gold mines in Mexico. Endeavour is currently advancing the Terronera mine project towards a development decision and exploring its portfolio of exploration and development projects in Mexico and Chile to facilitate its goal to become a premier senior silver producer.
