Silver Bull Resources (TSE:SVB) is not only on the verge of defining a high grade silver zone at its Sierra Mojada property in Mexico — on top of the already defined low grade silver resource — but it is also on the cusp of bringing a high grade zinc resource into its story.
At the moment, the company is working on an underground drilling campaign designed to expand its silver resource, by twinning a series of so called “long holes” in a high grade silver zone found at the eastern end of the Shallow Silver Zone at the property.
“There are 2,700 historical long holes, or very short drill holes, ranging from 10 to 50 metres long. We started twinning a small number of these to confirm the grades, and increase confidence in about 38,000 metres of drilling that was either severely restricted or discarded from our latest resource update,” says president and CEO Tim Barry.
