Cyprium Mining announces assays results averaging 37% Zn and provides an update from the Potosi Silver Mine

MONTREAL, June 20, 2016 /CNW/ – Cyprium Mining Corporation (“Cyprium” or the “Company“) (TSX-V: CUG and CUG.DB) is pleased to announce the results from nine underground samples taken from an oxidized zinc body on level 14 as part of its ongoing exploration program of the Potosi silver mine located in Santa Eulalia, Mexico.

The nine samples were taken from level 14 of the Santo Domingo body and averaged 37% Zn over an average sample width of 1.53m. The oxide zinc material is mainly hemimorphite, a zinc silicate mineral, and contains variable but generally low concentrations of lead, iron and manganese. Given the positive nature of these results, Cyprium has taken an additional thirty-five samples from level 14 which will be sent for analysis shortly. Oxidized zinc material is different from the more usual zinc sulfide produced by flotation in most zinc mines, including in most areas of the Potosi mine, and requires different processing techniques to recover the zinc metal.
