Golden Minerals releases 2019 drill program results from El Quevar, Argentina
Golden Minerals has released final results from the 2019 drilling program conducted at its El Quevar silver property located in Salta Province, Argentina. 3,004 meters were drilled in 19 holes.A new shallow high-grade zone was partially outlined in the Vince area. Four drill holes cut silver intercepts with grades of 500 to over 600 g/t silver over widths of 1 to 4 m. These results extend a historical drill intercept by about 200 meters northeast along strike. Other significant results of the program include a 2.1m interval grading 340 g/t Ag, in Yaxtche East. This hole demonstrates the potential to add to the mineral resources in the northeast sector of the Yaxtche deposit. Drilling at the Argentina prospect located approximately one kilometer east of Yaxtche has also returned silver values in one drill hole, with 2m of 358 g/t Ag. These results coincide with previous drilling in the area and are considered encouraging for the area to host mineralization of potential economic significance. The currently-defined resource includes over 45 million ounces of Indicated silver resources at an average grade of 482 g/t silver and covers only the 20-hectare Yaxtche deposit area within the property's 57,000-hectare boundaries.
