Northern Vertex announces drill results from Moss Mine

Global Mining Review,

Northern Vertex Mining Corp. has announced recent drill results from its multi-phase drilling and resource expansion programme (the programme) at the Moss Mine in northwestern Arizona.

The most notable results are set out above and are taken from 37 new reverse circulation (RC) drill holes from the Ruth vein area, which hosts multiple high-grade zones within larger zones of typical Moss Mine bulk-tonnage grade mineralisation along the Ruth vein. Three rigs (1 core and two RC) are currently operating within the company's Phase II of a multi-phase drill programme and the programme will transition to target the intersection between the Ruth vein and the Moss vein in the coming months.

Ken Berry, President and CEO, stated :"We are pleased to report another round of drilling results, including new high-grade intercepts along with thick low-grade zones, from our resource expansion drill programme at the Moss Mine. Drilling at the Ruth Vein, which runs parallel to our Moss Open Pit, continues to encounter encouraging drill intercepts. The Ruth is located just 160 m off the southern edge of our opencast mine and dips north toward the Moss Vein, which dips to the south, with the two veins intersecting at a contact zone approximately 225 m below surface. This Ruth/Moss Contact Zone is a prime geological drill target for our ongoing resource expansion program at the Moss Mine."


  • 15.25 m at 3.35 g/t gold and 23.09 g/t silver within 33.55 m at 1.83 g/t gold and 13.49 g/t silver in hole AR20-350R.
  • 1.5 m at 8.74 g/t gold and 80.10 g/t silver in hole AR20-322R, which is 183 m east of AR20-350R.
  • 3 m at 3.82 g/t gold and 56.0 g/t silver in hole AR20-321R, which is 457 m east of AR20-350R.
  • Results are from the Ruth vein, 160 m south of, and parallel to, Moss Mine opencast.
