Arizona Mining Inc.(TSX:AZ) announces the results of the first 10 exploration holes of a new drill program targeting the expansion of the Taylor zinc-lead-silver sulfide deposit located on its 100%-owned Hermosa Project in Santa Cruz County, Arizona. Six of the 10 holes were infill holes and 4 were to test for potential mineral extension.
This latest set of results demonstrates the very high potential to expand the Taylor Deeps zone, including at shallower depths up dip to the northeast. As a result of these new intersections and discussions with advisors and lead shareholders, the Company will focus the balance of the 2017 exploration drill program on the Taylor Deeps zone and definition drilling of the shallow, high-grade, Trench vein systems in the overlying volcanic units. The Company believes there is significant potential to increase the size of the resource and intends to produce an updated resource and feasibility study by year end. Permitting work on the Trench property will also advance as this will be relatively low cost and will add significant shareholder value to the project.
