Silver Wolf Announces 9.31 g/t Gold Sample from On-Going Surface Sampling Program

Share this post:


Silver Wolf Exploration Ltd. (TSXV:SWLF) is pleased to announce that it has received the assay results from three hundred and thirty six (336) grab samples collected during the 2nd phase of the exploration program at the Ana Maria Property, located 21 kilometres (km) northwest of the City of Gómez Palacio and the adjacent City of Torreón. The property consists of 9 mining concessions encompassing 2,549 hectares (ha).

“Our field geologists have undertaken a sampling program across the identified skarn mineralization where it outcrops on surface. In addition, we have continued the comprehensive mapping of the skarn at the contact between the intrusive and limestone” said Peter Latta, President. “The results of these samples indicate there is the potential that the skarn structure may host economic mineralization. These results support our belief in the possibility of making a discovery along the 4.1 km contact. We will layer in data from geophysical surveys and continue with the mapping and sampling fieldwork as we work to refine our drill targets for later this year.”

Ana Maria Exploration Work

The Ana Maria Central and South claim groups are shown in Figures 1 and 2 with the location of samples that have assays of copper, lead and zinc grades greater than 0.1% as well as all the highlighted samples listed Table 1 and 2, respectively. The numbers listed in the figures correspond to the sample number in the full list available on our website and in the abbreviated Table 1 and 2.

The main focus of the mapping and sampling to date has been on the Ana Maria Central claim group as a skarn structure has been identified outcropping on surface with widths ranging from 0.5 – 60 m along the 4.1 km long contact. In addition, the lower claim hosts structures that are consistent with the carbonate replacement deposit (CRD) model and displays mineralization that may be related to the intrusive which warrant further investigation. A detailed list of the work performed at the property to date is included in Silver Wolf’s August 3rd press release, which can be viewed on our website at releases. In summary, the Silver Wolf team has been following the plan laid out in the NI 43-101 technical report as filed on SEDAR. Future work will include performing a geophysical survey using electromagnetic methods to identify anomalies along the mapped skarn structure, refine drill targets in addition to continued mapping and sampling work. Updates will be provided as the information becomes available.

Highlights from Ana Maria Central and Ana Maria South are indicated in the tables below. The complete list of the samples are available at this link: Master List of Grab Samples.

Figure 2: Ana Maria Southern Claim showing Sample Numbers with Significant Results

As indicated in our August 3, 2021, press release, we engaged Spectir Advanced Hyperspectral Solutions to provide hyperspectral data via drone flight data acquisition. The results were positive and helped identify the skarn contact along the length of the intrusive zone within our claims. This provided specific locations along the 4.1 km long skarn contact to follow up with surface mapping and prospecting with our field geologists.

The field mapping, which was helped by the hyperspectral data acquisition and, previous to that, the Aster satellite work, has allowed for near complete identification of the skarn, on surface, within our claim. Figure 3 shows the skarn structure over a cross section from the limestone host rocks across the skarn to the granite intrusive. With the results of this sampling, mineral contouring maps have been developed and are shown in figures 4-8. These maps show the intensity and reach of the respective element being mapped. The grade contours represent anomalies, that, when overlayed with the anomalies generated in the upcoming geophysical surveys, will provide a basis for prioritizing drill targets.

Sampling and Assay Methods

Grab samples are selective in nature, and do not necessarily reflect the general geology of the Ana Maria property. Samples were submitted to the SGS Laboratory facility in Durango, Mexico. Gold is assayed by fire assay with an AA finish. Multi-element analyses are completed using SGS ICP14B methods. Any copper, manganese or iron samples exceeding 10,000 ppm (1%) are assayed using SGS ICP90Q methods.
