VANCOUVER, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – GREAT PANTHER SILVER LIMITED (TSX: GPR; NYSE MKT: GPL) (“Great Panther”; the “Company”) announces that surface drilling at its San Ignacio Mine, part of the Guanajuato Mine Complex (the “GMC”), has confirmed the continuation of strong gold-silver mineralization along strike of the current mine workings.

The drilling, which is ongoing, initially targeted the southeasterly strike extension of the Melladito vein structures, in particular, where this vein set is intersected and cut by, the Plateros vein trend.  The result of this intersection is a thickening of the veins, highlighted by hole ESI16-174, which returned a combined estimated true width of 19.24 metres averaging 6.36g/t gold (Au) and 261g/t silver (Ag).  This comprised 4.65 metres of 4.81g/t Au and 275g/t Ag in the Melladito vein and 14.59 metres of 6.86g/t Au and 257g/t Ag in the Plateros vein.  The extent of this thicker portion of vein intersection is not yet known and additional drilling and mine development will be required to determine its size and significance.  Nonetheless, several other holes returned excellent indications of high gold and silver grades as presented in the table below.
