Aya Gold & Silver Inc. (TSX: AYA) is pleased to report additional high-grade assay results from the 2021 drill exploration program at the Zgounder Silver Mine in the Kingdom of Morocco.
Key Highlights (all intersections are in core lengths
- High-grade extension of mineralization at the 2,030 level by DZG-SF-21-02, which intercepted 3,353 grams per tonne ("g/t") silver ("Ag") over 7.5m including
- 19,173 g/t Ag over 0.5m
- 10,440 g/t Ag over 0.5m
- 10,029 g/t Ag over 0.5m
- 5,865 g/t Ag over 0.5m
- 1,498 g/t Ag over 0.5m
- Additionally, DZF-SF-21-02bis intercepted 1,995 g/t Ag over 2.0m and 1,329 g/t Ag over 12.5m including
- 21,551 g/t Ag over 0.5m
- 5,355 g/t Ag over 0.5m
- Extension of eastern strike with DZG-21-18, which intercepted 1,705 g/t Ag over 5.5m
"Today's high-grade drill results add multiple intersections of exceptional grade and thickness that demonstrate the potential to further expand the deposit laterally. In particular, hole DZG-SF-21-02 struck a rich mineralised zone and ranks among our top 10 best intercepts. This intercept seems to form part of a larger vertical zone of high-grade mineralisation as evidenced by hole DZF-21-21-02bis, which hit silver 15 degrees above DZG-SF-21-02. We look forward to following these results up with additional drilling," said Benoit La Salle, President & CEO.
Included in this release are results for 25 diamond drill holes ("DDH"), which include 13 DDH from surface and 12 underground 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.
