Vizsla Resources Corp has provide the first results from the Aguita Zarca prospect on the Corden del Oro Vein at the Panuco silver-gold project in Mexico. These results are from the first drillhole testing a series of closely spaced veins in a new target area with oxidised mineralization almost from surface. Vizsla President and CEO Michael Konnert said "Drilling such a broad zone of veining at the Aguita Zarca prospect is another significant step forward for the Panuco project. This new zone is located over 5km east of our initial discovery at Napoleon and is located on the Cordon del Oro vein corridor, which has never been drilled before. The Aquita Zarca zone has significant size potential with a 400m strike length with surface mineralization and multiple closely spaced veins. 2020 has been an incredibly successful year and the Company continues to aggressively unlock the potential of Panuco. This is a clear demonstration of the upside that drilling can unlock at the underexplored Panuco district. Vizsla is drilling with five rigs across the district and is funded for an even more aggressive 2021."
Drilling Highlights CO-20-13
457 g/t silver equivalent (117.9 g/t silver and 3.71 g/t gold) over 18.15 m downhole width from 60.15 m including,
1,208 g/t silver equivalent (243.8 g/t silver and 10.49 g/t gold) over 5.95 m downhole width from 61.55 m
The Aguita Zarca prospect was defined in the middle of this year with detailed field mapping and surface sampling along the Cordon del Oro vein corridor. The prospect is only 1,300 m to the west southwest of the El Coco Mill and San Carlos mine but occurs at a 160 metre higher elevation. It occurs along the Cordon del Oro trend that has wide veins over long distances and the Company believes represents a less eroded version of the adjacent Animas vein corridor. The trend has never previously been drilled and contains multiple small-scale workings.
