Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 10, 2018) - Bayhorse Silver Inc.(TSXV: BHS) ("Bayhorse" or the "Company") reports 26 preliminary silver assays from the 60 channel samples recently completed at its Bayhorse Silver Mine, Oregon, USA.
60 channel samples submitted for assay
26 channel samples received to date
30kg metallurgical sample-- assay pending
Long hole assays pending
Of the silver assays received:
one sample graded 313 oz/t (9,735 g/t)
one sample graded 115 oz/t (3,570 g/t)
one sample graded between 20 oz/t (630 g/t) and 30 oz/t (943 g/t)
three samples graded between 10 oz/t (311 g/t) 20 oz/t (630 g/t)
five samples graded between 5 oz/t (155 g/t) and ten oz/t (311 g/t)
the remainder assayed under 5 oz/t (155 g/t)
Full channel sample results are tabulated below:
|Sample||Ag g/t||Ag oz/t|
|19||Extra Split #1||185.07||5.95|
|20||Extra Split #2||141.52||4.55|
|23||W-3 South End LR Under Brow||120.37||3.87|
|24||W-4 South End RR Under Brow||183.82||5.91|
The 60 channel samples, each measuring 0.66 meters (2.4ft) by 0.2 meters (6"), were taken on ten (10) foot centers with three components, from the back, and the left and right ribs for each sample site. All are from the westerly end of the newly accessed main haulage way.
To complement the channel samples, a series of long holes, on fifteen (15) foot centers, are being carried out along 200 feet of the haulage way, commencing at the first channel sample location. The long hole groups consist of one vertical hole, one angled 70 degrees in the westerly direction along the haulage way, and one at 70 degrees into the right rib. Cuttings are being taken at one (1) meter intervals up the holes and submitted for assay. Both the channel samples and long holes are for comparison with historically reported and mined, both high grade and low grade material, and with the thickness of the mineralized zone, that was historically reported as averaging 20 feet.
Assay results will be reported as received.
Bayhorse CEO Graeme O'Neill comments, "The continued showings of high grade silver mineralization in the Big Dog stope and to the west is like a jewelry box. Some spectacular good quality pieces are situated among less attractive material. The detailed sampling will assist in selectively mining the better zones while leaving barren portions as support pillars."
The Company is not basing any decision to produce on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability and also advises there is increased uncertainty and specific economic and technical risks of failure with any production decision.
Assaying for the samples reported above is by American Analytical Services Labs of Osburn, Idaho. The analytical method used for the silver analysis consists of a 1 Assay Ton (AT) samples subjected to fire assay with gravimetric finish. Base metals are subjected to an ICP 35 element, four acid digestion assay.
