Northern Vertex Mining Corp announced recent drill results from its multi-phase drilling and resource expansion program at the Moss Mine in NW Arizona. The most notable results are set out above and are taken from 37 new reverse circulation drill holes from the Ruth vein area, which hosts multiple high-grade zones within larger zones of typical Moss Mine bulk-tonnage grade mineralization along the Ruth vein. Three rigs (1 core and two RC) are currently operating within the Company's Phase II of a multi-phase drill program and the program will transition to target the intersection between the Ruth vein and the Moss vein in the coming months.
Ken Berry, President & CEO stated: "We are pleased to report another round of drilling results, including new high-grade intercepts along with thick low-grade zones, from our resource expansion drill program at the Moss Mine. Drilling at the Ruth Vein, which runs parallel to our Moss Open Pit, continues to encounter encouraging drill intercepts. The Ruth is located just 160 meters off the southern edge of our open pit mine and dips north toward the Moss Vein, which dips to the south, with the two veins intersecting at a contact zone approximately 225 meters below surface. This Ruth/Moss Contact Zone is a prime geological drill target for our ongoing resource expansion program at the Moss Mine."
