Consolidated Zinc Limited (ASX:CZL) is pleased to provide an update on the mapping and assaying program recently undertaken at their high grade Plomosas Zinc Project in Mexico. The sampling at Las Espadas was recently reported in the Company’s announcement to the ASX on 15 June 2017.
Las Espadas Las Espadas is currently being outlined in underground workings to the north of CZL’s previously announced project areas. The Las Espadas area has been exposed and mapped in workings on Level 5 but was largely untouched by historical mining (Figure 1).
Systematic rock channel chip samples were taken over 150m of continuous exposure and 33 were submitted for assay. Assay results are summarised in Table 1 for the main mineralised horizon, while details of all samples and their locations are provided in Table 2 and Figure 3.
14 samples were taken in the massive sulphide horizon:
 varying in width from 0.5m to 1.4m (average 0.95m),
 they returned averaged zinc grades of 32.1% Zn with combined grades of 47.0% Zn+Pb.
 Of the 14 samples, 9 returned over 30% Zn (peak 40.43% Zn) and 5 contained over 50%
Zn+Pb (peak 58.58%).
