Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 30, 2021) – Pantera Silver Corp. (TSXV: PNTR) (“Pantera” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that diamond core drilling has started at its Nuevo Taxco Silver Project (“Nuevo Taxco”) located in the Pregones Mining District of Guerrero State, Mexico. The Nuevo Taxco Silver Project is approximately 40 kms northwest of the municipality of Taxco which is historically known as the “Silver Capital of the World”.
The first phase of this maiden exploration drill program will be for up to 2,000 meters. Drilling will follow up on geological work completed by IMPACT Silver (TSXV. IPT, “Impact“) on the Nuevo Taxco Silver project in 2013 which identified and sampled twenty-one (21) high grade silver veins (see below “Nuevo Taxco Property Highlights”). Drilling will be completed in stages of approximately 500-600 metres per stage with each stage being assayed and analyzed before commencing the next stage of drilling. Drill holes will be from approximately 50 to 150 meters in depth.
Commenting on the start of drilling, Pantera CEO, Jay Roberge stated, “We are very pleased to commence drilling and to apply modern geological science to the rich history of this very prospective target area. Our staged approach to drilling has been proven effective by other programs in the region and is the preferred strategy for advancing the project. We are grateful to be given the opportunity to work in this historical district of Mexico, and for the strong support and assistance of the local communities.”
