Canasil President & CEO, Bahman Yamini, commented: We are pleased that drilling has resumed at La Esperanza; the project covers a large area hosting multiple vein systems with potential for high-grade silver-gold-zinc-lead mineralization. The main La Esperanza vein, where the recent and current drill programs have been focused, demonstrates signs of a strong mineralized system and has consistently returned wide high-grade intercepts from drilling to date. This vein has only been tested over a limited zone along the potential strike of the vein at a relatively high level in the system. There should be excellent opportunities for expanding the mineralized envelope along strike and to depth.
Taj Singh, P.Eng, President & CEO states, Additional assay results from our sampling program at Puerto Rico continue to highlight the high-grade nature and strong continuity of mineralization in the historic underground workings at Puerto Rico. Our mapping and sampling program is progressing well and we continue to be on pace to have drill-ready targets in Q3.
José Antonio Berlanga, Director and CEO, states: "Achieving commercial production at Campo Morado is a major milestone for Telson. When we commenced pre-production activities in October 2017, we provided guidance that we expected to declare commercial production in Q3, 2018. To do so mid Q2, a full 3 months ahead of schedule, is a testament to the tremendous skill and expertise of our mining team and the hard work of our employees....
"These results clearly indicate that high grade silver vein mineralization, and also silver bearing breccia geology, is evidenced along the full 3 km strike extent of the San Javier structure and the San Javier mineralized corridor. This is very encouraging for geological prospects and vein continuity along trend in the northeasterly direction, and suggests potential for a robust high-grade and vein hosted mineral endowment." Stated Hub Mockler.
Marcio Fonseca, Goldplay's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are extremely excited with the start of drilling on an attractive exploration project located in the vicinity of historical high-grade historical gold-silver Rosario mine.
Riversides President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated: We are encouraged by the exploration results obtained at the Canasta target which we acquired with partner Centerra Gold through the Mexico concession lottery system. The soil survey and rock samples have provided positive results that encourage Riverside to continue with drill target definition. We look forward to further exploration work being done at the Project leading to a potential drilling campaign later in the year.
Igor Gonzales, President and CEO of Sierra Metals commented "Management are pleased with the updated reserve and resource report. The upward conversion of resources and an 83% increase in reserves which averages 19 g/t silver, 0.86% copper and 0.25 g/t gold or 1.14% CuEq** improves the mine life at Bolivar to more than seven years at the current throughput levels when compared to the previous estimate filed in April 2017.
Allan Barry Laboucan, President and CEO of Advance Gold Corp. commented: "Our exploration team, is very enthusiastic about what we have encountered with the first hole drilled into the sulphide zone of the Tabasquena epithermal vein. We have prepared a cross section of the discovery drill hole, as well as a plan map, and are including images of the entire intersection of the sulphide zone of the Tabasquena vein..."
