Silver Peak Canada – Drill Programme Overlimit Assay Results
Overlimit Assay Results Produce High-Grade Copper, Antimony and Lead; Highlight Result Now Includes 0.76m of 10,131g/t Silver Equivalent*
Power Metal Resources PLC (LON:POW) the London listed exploration company seeking large-scale metal discoveries across its global project portfolio, announces overlimit assay results from its recently completed 2021 diamond drilling exploration programme on the Silver Peak Project (“Silver Peak” or the “Project”) located in British Columbia, Canada. The original silver assay results for the 2021 drill programme were announced 12 November 2021 and can be viewed at the following link:
Silver Peak Canada – Drill Programme Assay Results – 08:53:44 12 Nov 2021 – POW News article | London Stock Exchange
· A total of 19 short cored drill holes were completed as part of the Phase I programme and all drill core was logged, catalogued and split by independent geological consultants prior to being sent to ALS Canada Ltd in Vancouver, British Columbia, for accredited laboratory assay analysis. The holes were undertaken utilising either Shaw or Hilti portable drills producing 34mm diameter core samples.
· Overlimit assays were completed on all copper, antimony and lead results which returned >10,000 ppm (1%) from the original laboratory results. The overlimit reported herein include individual results up to 7.76% copper (Cu), 9.45% lead (Pb), and 8.63% Antimony (Sb).
· Updated highlight intercepts which are now calculated as AgEq* and include Cu, Sb and Pb results (complete collar and assay tables available at the bottom of this release):
o 0.9m of 4,649g/t AgEq from DDH21-1 (including 0.3m of 10,649g/t Ag, 2.28% Cu, 6.53% Sb, and 5.53% Pb)
o 0.76m of 10,131g/t AgEq from DDH21-2 (including 0.35m of 12,373g/t Ag, 3.44% Cu, 9.45% Sb, and 8.63% Pb)
o 1.75m 3,072g/t AgEq from DDH21-7 (including 0.25m of 17,016g/t Ag, 4.10% Cu, 8.26% Sb, and 6.05% Pb)
o 1.52m of 3,244g/t AgEq from DDH21-8
o 2.44m of 1,306g/t AgEq from DDH21-12
o 2.43m of 2,068/t AgEq from DDH21-13
o 2.59m of 1,740/t AgEq from DDH21-15
· The high-grade Cu, Sb and Pb results led to an average increase in grade of 18.8% from Ag to AgEq for the calculated intervals. Considering these extremely high Cu, Sb and Pb results, the updated silver equivalent values further highlight the silver rich nature of the veins on the Silver Peak Project.
Paul Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Power Metal Resources plc commented:
“The bonanza grade silver results from Silver Peak are further strengthened today with the overlimit analysis demonstrating significant copper, antimony and lead grades and increasing the average silver equivalent grade considerably.
Overall, the results are highly impressive and demonstrate the incredibly silver rich veins at Silver Peak. Without question this is an important asset for Power Metal and our partners, particularly in a world where high quality silver projects are hard to secure.”
