Drill Hole K16-01 assayed 1,778.5 g/t (57.2 oz/t) silver over a 20-ft. (6.1m) interval within a 50 ft. (15.2m) mineralized intersection averaging 837.4 g/t (26.9 oz/t)
VANCOUVER, Canada –- Viscount Mining Corp. (TSX-V: VML) (OTCQB: VLMGF) (“Viscount” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce further drill results from the Silver Cliff property in the Hardscrabble Silver District of Custer County, Colorado (the “Property”). The 2016 drill program commenced in mid-November had as its primary objective the confirmation of information in reports on historical drilling on one of the Silver Cliff deposits known as the Kate Silver Resource (the “KSR”) by twinning historic holes.
Nine holes with a total of 1,502 ft. (457.8 m) were completed in the recent campaign and this release is reporting values from K16-01, K16-03, K16-04, K16-05, K16-06, and K16-08 from which core was assayed at ALS Canada Ltd., at their laboratories in Reno, Nevada, and Vancouver, BC. In the case of K16-08, core sampling and, hence, assaying inadvertently stopped at 173 feet (52.7 m), only 3 feet (0.9 m) past the historical intersection of silver mineralization. Viscount will extend the sampling of this hole when the next phase of work commences.
A summary of drill intersections for which assays have been received to date is presented below. The hole collars lie within a northeast trending corridor that is 833 ft. (254m) from K16-05 to K16-03. Holes K16-03 and -04 were drilled at -90° (vertical) and the others toward north at -60° to the horizontal. Although rock units dip or slope at 2° to 5° toward the east-southeast as noted under the heading “Silver Cliff Geology”, the present interpretation is that silver-bearing mineralization and silica have replaced portions of a porous limestone reef unit. Such replacement is typically uneven rather than uniformly tabular. Because of this and the early stage of drilling, true widths are not estimated.
