VANCOUVER, BC and HONG KONG, CHINA / ACCESSWIRE / December 14, 2022 / Reyna Silver Corp. (TSXV:RSLV) (OTCQX:RSNVF) (FRA:4ZC) (“Reyna” or the “Company”) announces a weather-related pause in the Phase 1 Drilling Program on its 4,831 hectare Medicine Springs Project in Elko Co., Nevada. Reyna can Earn-In an 80% interest in the project from Northern Lights Resources (See Press Release of October 5, 2020). The company completed 1,850 meters in a total of four widely-spaced holes designed to determine broad system parameters. The holes completed include the first ever drilled into the Silver Butte and Silver King areas in the high, southwestern part of the property. Samples have been sent to the lab, and we look forward to releasing results for the entire drilling to date as soon as they are available.
“We prioritized drilling in the Silver Butte area because it is further from our access points and at a higher elevation, we are very pleased to be able to complete the first holes ever drilled into the area before the weather closed in,” said Jorge Ramiro Monroy, CEO of Reyna Silver. “We look forward to resuming in the spring after seeing how the results from this historically highly prospective part of the property fit into our emerging district picture. We expect to share the assay results with our investors in early 2023.”
Medicine Springs exhibits many of the key features associated with large, high-grade Carbonate Replacement Deposits (“CRDs”) and the Phase 1 Drilling program was designed to test certain key features of the project’s overall framework to verify project potential. These features include:
- Stratigraphy – determining the extent of potentially favorable carbonate host rocks.
- Structure – determining the expression of the well-zoned, mineralized jasperoids at depth (See Press Release from January 10, 2022).
- Oxidation Depth – identifying the depth of oxidation and transition to sulphides.
- Geophysics – ground-truthing geophysical anomalies at depth.
- Broad-scale zoning and potential vectors towards the mineralizing fluid source.
