SilverCrest’s President, J. Scott Drever, said:

 In an epithermal deposit such as Santa Elena one can always expect narrow widths of high grades but to encounter 15.6 metres grading 23.9 gpt Au (0.69 opt) and 307.9 gpt Ag (9.0 opt) is truly remarkable and the discovery of the new ‘El Cholugo Zone” with similar high grades simply adds to the excitement of the increased potential.
