Arizona Mining Inc.(TSX:AZ) announces the results of three (3) 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 2016-2017 program to seventy (70). The holes contained in this press release will not be included in the preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”) planned for release by the end of this quarter.
HDS-422B is a near vertical hole (-87 degrees) drilled within the southeastern portion of the previously reported mineral resource. The drill hole encountered three (3) mineralized veins; two (2) hosted in the carbonates and one (1) hosted in the volcanics. The drill hole also intersected six (6) mineralized horizons within the Taylor Sulfide zone and a very substantial mineralized interval in the Taylor Deeps Sulfide zone. When added together, the Taylor Sulfide zone intervals have a cumulative thickness of 288 feet (refer to Table I). Most notable among the mineralized horizons are:
24.5 feet assaying 4.9% zinc, 7.5% lead and 2.3 ounces per ton (“opt”) silver (TS)
81 feet assaying 7.0% zinc, 10.2% lead and 4.3 opt silver (TDS)
– Including a 21.5 foot zone which assayed 17.1% zinc, 22.4% lead and 9.2 opt silver
