Vancouver, British Columbia – Silver Bull Resources, Inc. (TSX: SVB, OTCQB: SVBL) (“Silver Bull”) is pleased to provide the results of the first two drill holes from its underground drill program targeting high grade structures in the newly discovered Sulphide Zone on the Sierra Mojada Project in Coahuila, Northern Mexico.
Highlights from the first two drill holes include:
- Hole T17002 – 25.5 meters @ 294g/t silver and 0.96% copper including 11.5 meters @ 486g/t silver and 1.13% copper from 14 meters to 25.5 meters, and which contains a smaller interval of 4 meters @ 966g/t silver and 2.0% copper from 15 meters to 19 meters.
- Hole T17002 hit underground workings and was terminated in high grade mineralization.
- Hole T17001 – 7 meters @ 121g/t silver and 0.52% copper including 2 meters @ 376g/t silver and 3.0% copper from 0 meters to 2 meters.
The Sulphide Zone: An underground geological mapping and continuous underground channel sampling program conducted by Silver Bull during the month of August identified a series of east-west trending high angle structure hosting sulphide mineralization (announced in a news release on 11 September 2017). Results from the continuous channel sampling program yielded 31.5 meters grading at 22.36% zinc, 134.5g/t silver, 2.05% lead, 0.21% copper and 10.5 meters @ 432g/t silver, 1.15% zinc, 0.05% lead, 1.22% copper. This sulphide zone is the target of the current drill program.
