Surface sampling and geological mapping at the San Celso project in Mexico owned by Arian Silver Corporation (LON:AGQ) has delivered promising early stage results.
Among the most notable numbers returned by the company was 1.05 metres at 0.059 grams per tonne gold, 393.9 grams per tonne silver, 1,140 parts per million (ppm) lead and 3,460 ppm zinc.
The preliminary geochemical exploration work at San Celso suggests the silver-lead-zinc mineralisation is indicative of a low sulphidation epithermal system. At San Celso, historic mining terminated at the water table (approximately 90 metres) and the Company believes there is considerable depth potential to both the San Celso and Las Cristinitas veins.
“Over the coming months, we shall be focussing on further evaluation of San Celso and nearby mining concessions with the intention of identifying additional areas of mineralisation,” said Arian chief executive Jim Williams.
