Bear Creek Mining Corporation BCM:CA announced drill results from its Tassa Prospect, northwest of Chucapaca in Peru. Assay highlights include 224.2 g/t silver over 60 metres, 110.7 g/t over 40 metres, 202 g/t over 10 metres and 146.5 g/t over 12 metres.
President/CEO Andrew Swarthout commented, “We are encouraged with the success rate including four drill holes containing significant silver mineralization in our first round of widely spaced drilling in this very large target area. These positive early stage results along with the multi-phase nature of the volcanic diatreme complex at Tassa as well as the presence of similar host sediments to the nearby Chucapaca gold discovery of Goldfields and Buenaventura provide significant potential to discover additional higher grade silver and gold zones within the largely untested property position and highly metal-endowed geologic environment.”
