33,000 meters of surface diamond drilling has been completed on the property since 2005. Silver occurs with Lead and Zinc sulphides and Silver-sulphosalts in a variety of environments, including: numerous laterally and vertically continuous Carbonate Veins; stringer zones; disseminated zones; Carbonate replacement zones; Mantos and, at depth, very large Skarn Zones. SGS (Canada) Ltd., using a geo-statistical approach to resource estimation, completed a 43-101 Compliant Resource Study in 2013.
The study identified 23 different Mineralized zones and generated 34 3D-Block Models. Results from the study are shown in Table 1. The wide variety in style, width and grade of mineralization across the property was evaluated using appropriate cut-off grades related to narrow-vein mining, long-hole mining or large-scale bulk mining methods in Mexico.
