2018-12-04_nr_asm_cyd4xecc

Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. (ASM: TSX/NYSE American/GV6: FSE; “Avino” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce drill results from eleven holes that were drilled in the wall of the Avino Open Pit Mine area of the Avino vein stockwork system. The Avino Open Pit Mine area is located on the Avino property, situated 80 kilometres northeast of Durango, Mexico. Mapping by the mine geology team revealed shallow remnants of vein material on the margins of the open pit that had not been mined historically. Subsequently, during July and August 2018, eleven short diamond drill
holes were drilled from surface into the footwall and the hanging wall to the main Avino Vein at the western end of the historic open pit. Mineralized material was intersected in a zone of stockwork and vein material less than 120 metres from surface. This has been provisionally named the ‘El Hundido Zone’. The stratigraphic relationship between this material and the zones currently being mined at depth in the Elena Tolosa “ET” Mine will be correlated with further work. The assays show a promising range of gold, silver, and copper grades at different widths, which warrant further investigation.
