MONTREAL, Oct. 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Auxico Resources Canada Inc. (CSE:AUAG.CN) is pleased to provide initial sampling results of a single trench that yielded a 50m wide mineralized section grading 0.85 g/t Au including 3m of 13.07 g/t Au at the Aguamas property. This trench is located about 100 metres southeast of the Aguamas 2 historical mine, which returned samples of 14.87 g/t Au and 192.22 g/t Ag, and 25 metres northwest of the Aguamas 1 historical mine, where recent sampling returned 34.05 g/t Au and 97.78 g/t Ag. Examination of these past workings and exposed rock outcroppings indicated a series of quartz veins at multiple angles within a silicified volcanic breccia. The Aguamas property is located within the Company’s silver/gold property which contains 25 historic producers and occurrences. These gold and silver occurrences outline two regional trends that transect the property, anchored by past producers and field observations by Auxico’s geologists.
