Almaden Minerals Ltd AMM:CA announced results from its Ixtaca Zone in Puebla State, Mexico. Assays include 0.66 g/t gold and 25.2 g/t silver over 21.3 metres (including 1.1 g/t gold and 41.2 g/t silver over 9.2 metres), 0.83 g/t gold and 79.6 g/t silver over 22.7 metres (including 1.44 g/t gold and 154.5 g/t silver over 8.9 metres, 7.57 g/t gold and 882.3 g/t silver over 1 metre), 1.33 g/t gold and 79.9 g/t silver over 94.7 metres (including 8.83 g/t gold and 1,337 g/t silver over 0.9 metres), and 37.4 g/t gold and 466 g/t silver over 0.5 metres.
Chairman J.D. Poliquin said, “We are very pleased to have confirmed the broad zone of veining at Ixtaca with the two holes reported today. We have yet to test the deeper portions of this vein system where high grade feeder zones are interpreted to likely exist. Nevertheless the more shallow portions of the vein system that have been tested have returned some high grade intervals as reported in the tables of this news release. Further holes are necessary to be confident with the orientation of the veins in this blind discovery but we are very encouraged with the results received to date.”
