PR NEWS: Aya Gold & Silver (TSX: AYA) Drills 12 m of 2,417 g/t Ag and 3,272 g/t Ag over 7.2m at Depth at Zgounder

Aya Gold & Silver Inc. (TSX: AYA) is pleased to report additional underground silver assay results from its 2021 drill exploration program at the Zgounder Silver Mine in the Kingdom of Morocco.

Key Highlights (all intersections are in core lengths)

T28 percussion holes were carried out in three areas located at the 1,975 meters (“m”), 2,100m and 2,125m levels to the east:

At the 2,125m level, continuation of the eastern trend at depth by T28-21-2125-203 which encountered 2,417 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver (“Ag”) over 12m including:

  • 13,727 g/t Ag over 1.2m
  • 3,029 g/t Ag over 1.2m
  • 4,808 g/t Ag over 1.2m
  • 1,370 g/t Ag over 1.2m

At the 2,100m level, validation of the vertical continuity with high-grade intercepts such as T28-21-2100-188bis, which generated 480 g/t Ag over 13.2m including

  • 2,151 g/t Ag over 1.2m
  • 2,113 g/t Ag over 1.2m

At the 1,975m level, extension of high-grade underground mineralization in a previously untested area below current operations with T28-21-1975-253, which returned 3,272 g/t Ag over 7.2m and with T28-21-1975-253bis which intersected 3,101 g/t Ag over 7.2m including

  • 13,671 g/t Ag over 1.2m
  • 3,680 g/t Ag over 1.2m

Ongoing definition of high-grade mineralisation below current mine operations with ZG-21-45, which returned 1,030 g/t Ag over 4.5m and 537 g/t Ag over 5.0m

“We are delighted with today’s results, which continue to demonstrate Zgounder’s high-grade potential at depth.  In particular, holes T28-21-2125-203, T28-21-1975-253 and T28-21-1975-253bis rank among our top all-time best drill intercepts at Zgounder on a grade by thickness basis. These newly drilled high-grade mineralized pods located below the current mining galleries validate continuity at depth and to the east at Zgounder,” said Benoit La Salle, President & CEO.

Included in this release are results for 70 diamond drill holes (“DDH”), which include three DDH from surface and 67 underground percussion holes. For a full summary of today’s results from the 2021 drill program, refer to Appendix 1 for surface results and Appendix 2 for underground results.
