Arizona Mining Inc.(TSX:AZ) is pleased to announce the results of five (5) exploration drill holes from its current program on the Taylor zinc-lead-silver sulfide deposit located on its 100%-owned Hermosa Project in Santa Cruz County, Arizona. This brings the total number of drill holes reported in the latest program to forty-six (46).
HDS-396 is a vertical hole drilled to infill an area on the southwest margin of the previously reported resource area. The drill hole was successful and clearly indicates continuity of the mineralization in the area of the resource previously defined by HDS-334 and HDS-361. HDS-396 intersected eleven (11) distinct mineralized CRD horizons with a total cumulative mineralized thickness of 972 feet. Several mineralized zones were intersected in the drill hole including a 524-foot thick interval assaying 8.5% zinc, 6.9% lead and 2.5 ounces per ton (opt) silver. Within the larger interval several higher-grade zones were intersected, the best of which was a 104-foot thick interval which assayed 22.1% zinc, 14.6% lead and 5.6 opt silver.
