VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Nov. 14, 2016) – Silver Bull Resources, Inc. (OTCQB:SVBL)(TSX:SVB) (“Silver Bull”) is pleased to announce it has commenced an initial 3,000 meter exploration drill program using Major Drilling at the Sierra Mojada project in Coahuila, Northern Mexico.
The program is targeting potential sulphide mineralization at depth believed to be underneath and adjacent to, the main zone of mineralization already defined at Sierra Mojada. Deep structures are thought to be the conduits from which the shallow mineralization seen on the project has been emplaced, and are the targets of this program. A number of drill holes have previously intercepted structurally controlled sulphide mineralization such as drill hole “B11144”, which intercepted 8.45 meters at 17% zinc, 5.45% lead, and 60g/t silver starting at 193 meters. In addition, recent underground mapping and sampling identified another area of structurally controlled sulphide mineralization with underground channel samples returning grades up to 690g/t silver, 15.25% zinc, 4.8% lead, and 1% copper.
