Subsequent targets will include the Hamburg Zone where drilling last year returned a wide zone of mineralization in holes JR-20-02 from 123.44 to 181.36 meters, over 57.91 meter in width (drill width) averaging 0.44 g/t Au and 3.0 g/t Ag, with a higher-grade portion from 152.40 to 169.16 meters, over 16.76 meters averaging 0.94 g/t Au and 6.6 g/t Ag.
Also, at the Hamburg Zone a CRD intercept drilled in a 2012 program has never been followed up by diamond drilling. Reverse circulation (“RC”) JR-12-06, from 15.2 to 18.2 meters, over 3.0 meters returned 1.1 g/t Au, 601.0 g/t Ag, 8.8 % Pb, and 4.7 % Zn.
