Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSXV:NEE) announced that all remaining assays have been received for Phase 4 Drilling, a 19-hole, 2,643.8 meter drilling program on the Moss Mine heap leach project in Mohave County, NW Arizona.
As quoted in the press release:
In addition to the 15-hole drill program, assay results were received on AR-180, AR-202 & AR-203. AR-180 was an oriented core hole aimed at collecting a portion of the data required for pit slope optimization. AR-202 & AR-203 were short holes drilled beneath the Phase I leach pads for geotechnical test purposes.
The additional intercepts in AR-211, located in the western portion of the deposit, build on the potential of the widespread stockwork mineralization announced in the July 3, 2013 news release. The new intercept received for AR-211 extends mineralization to within 17 meters of surface.
In the central portion of the Moss deposit, drill hole AR-196 extended mineralization to depths up to 220 metres vertically from surface and it remains open. Drill hole AR-180 helped confirm grades in the core of the Moss Deposit.
On the eastern portion of the Moss deposit, drill hole AR-208 was successful in verifying the presence of inferred mineralization and may allow for an upgrade of inferred resources. Drill hole AR-210 extended the mineralization to depths up to 175 meters vertically from surface where it remains open.
Northern Vertex Mining Corp. President and CEO, Dick Whittington, said:
We are pleased to have concluded this drill program with a number of goals being achieved: near surface stockwork mineralization does extend in the western section, our depth drilling indicates mineralization is continuing to occur at depth, some “inferred” resources may be reclassified to “indicated” and our pit slope optimization studies can now progress further with this new drill and map data as a result of this program.
