Extorre Gold Mines Limited XG:CA announced results from its Cerro Moro Project in Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. Assays include 12.4 g/t gold and 1,603 g/t silver over 4.8 metres (including 70.7 g/t gold and 8,935 g/t silver over 0.8 metres), 14.8 g/t gold and 1,208 g/t silver over 2.6 metres (including 81.5 g/t gold and 6,851 g/t silver over 0.3 metres), and 105.3 g/t gold and 1,592 g/t silver over 0.8 metres.
President/CEO Eric Roth said, “The infill drill program has been successful in confirming continuity of high grade gold-silver mineralization in both the Loma Escondida and Gabriela vein zones. These veins are very important as they will potentially provide high grade open pit ore to the Cerro Moro plant in the early production years. It is noteworthy that this batch of results includes the highest silver-gold grades obtained to date from the Gabriela vein. The completion of the infill drilling allows us to focus the four rigs on establishing the upside of the extensive Cerro Moro vein system. We expect to drill 5,000-plus metres per month through 2011, allowing us to test many targets that have had little or no drilling to date.”
