Endeavour Silver Corp. has intersected high grade gold-silver mineralisation in its 2021 exploration drill programme to expand the Melladito and Belen orebodies at the Bolañitos Mine in Guanajuato State, Mexico. The company is currently producing from four orebodies at Bolañitos: Plateros, Lucero, San Miguel and Melladito. Exploration drilling is ongoing along the Melladito and Belen veins.
Highlights from the latest drill results include:
- 8.09 g/t gold (Au) and 1044 g/t silver (Ag) for 1611 g/t silver equivalent (AgEq at an 70:1 silver:gold ratio) over a 1 m true width (47 oz/short t AgEq over 3.3 ft), including 14.2 g/t Au and 1974 g/t Ag for 2966 g/t AgEq over 0.26 m (86.5 oz/short t AgEq over 1 ft) in drill hole BN-64 on the Melladito HW vein.
- 4.43 g/t Au and 148 g/t Ag for 458 g/t AgEq over a 2.34 m true width (13.4 oz/short t AgEq over 7.7 ft), including 13.22 g/t Au and 129 g/t Ag for 1054 g/t AgEq over 0.19 m (30.7 oz/short t AgEq over 0.7 ft) in drill hole BL1.5S-4 on the Belen HW vein.
Luis Castro, Vice President of Exploration, commented: “We continue to intersect strong drill results as we step out from the current margins of the Melladito and Belen orebodies, with a number of other targets to drill, along both the Melladito and Belen veins.”
