Trevali Mining reports positive results from Santander mine

The Trevali Mining Corp. has announced the results of five drilling experiments from its 2015 exploration project that was designed to test and probe deeper levels inside the Fatima and Magistral Central Zones, both of which are in the Santander Zinc Mine in Peru.

All five of these drill holes managed to intersect with significant findings of lead, silver and zinc mineralization. Trevali Mining expects these holes will remain open for further expansion.

"The company continues to be pleased with the exploration results from our Santander mine," Trevali Mining  President and CEO Mark Cruise said. "The exploration success rate to date is extremely high, but more importantly given current market conditions, the Santander team has been able to successfully convert exploration success into value by adding mill feed in highly-compressed timeframes.

"Bigger picture, we believe we have barely scratched the surface at Santander, which geologically is already one of the larger-end members of the Carbonate Replacement Deposit type. All of the currently known zones, including the former-producing Santander Pipe, remain open for expansion and we have multiple earlier-stage priority targets on our large property package that require future drill testing."
