NAM-033 also intersected an open stope at the projected target but still cut 0.49m with 409g/t AgEq comprised of 96g/t Ag, 2.5%Pb and 8.92%Zn from 213.2m to 213.7m.
The strong lead and zinc mineralization along with silver was also intersected in this drill hole, highlighted by 127g/t AgEq over 11.6m with 20g/t Ag, 1.13% Pb and 2.78% Zn from 243.3m to 255m (Table 2).
Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, and CEO, remarked, "While Babi Sur mineralization has an impressive average grade of approximately 500 gpt AgEq, it tends to be overlooked when reviewing the higher grades at the Babicanora, Babicanora Norte and Babicanora FW veins.
