Great Panther Silver Ltd. (TSX:GPR,NYSEMKT:GPL) announced surface drilling results from its Mexico-based San Ignacio project, commenting that the program’s most significant intersection was hole ESI13-106 on section 475N, which assayed 263 grams per tonne (g/t) silver and 7.27 g/t gold over a core length of 24.6 meters.
As quoted in the press release:
The surface drilling comprised 13 holes totaling 1,144 metres and was focused on the upper 80 metres of the Intermediate Vein in order to define the top of the epithermal system and to better guide the first two years of development.
The 2013 drill program filled in gaps from the 2011/2012 drill program and the new intersections corroborate the previous interpretation of the Intermediate Vein. The aforementioned intersection of thick vein mineralization in ESI13-106 correlates with previous drill results from hole ESI11-039, 25m to the south, that returned 185g/t Ag and 5.47g/t Au over a true width of 5.39m indicating that higher grade “blow-outs” or “clavos” are a natural part of the vein system.
