Cascada Silver Provides Exploration Update on the Agua Amarga and Marilin Projects
TORONTO, Ontario, June 29, 2021 – Cascada Silver Corp. (CSE:CSS) ("Cascada") is pleased to provide updates on drilling activities at its Agua Amarga silver project and the underground exploration and sampling program at its Marilin gold silver project, both located in Chile’s Atacama Region.
At the Agua Amarga project, the previously announced reverse circulation drilling program has been completed with four drill holes targeting the down dip extensions of the silver-bearing veins which had been mined during the 1800’s. Samples from the drilling program have been sent for assaying. It is anticipated that results will be available in 3 to 5 weeks, which is longer than normal turn-around for results due to COVID-19 restrictions at the laboratories in Chile.
At the Marilin project, the underground exploration adit has been completed with the adit driven along 40 metres of the Marilin vein structure exposing a 0.90 to 1.50 metre wide zone of oxidized quartz carbonate veining. Samples, collected at the adit face after each blast, have been sent for assaying with results anticipated in 2 to 4 weeks. In addition to the underground exploration, approximately 200 metres to the southeast and 120 metres above the adit, two samples were collected from the sides of the main Marilin quartz vein, which had historically been exposed by a deep pit. One 0.6 metre chip sample collected across a quartz vein with iron and copper oxides returned assay results of 2.52 gram per tonne (“g/t”) gold, 57.3 g/t silver and 1.35% copper. A second 0.2 metre chip sample of druzy quartz with calcite and iron and copper oxides returned 1.41 g/t gold, 152.8 g/t silver and 1.6% copper. The main Marilin vein itself could not be accessed for sampling.
“The exploration programs at the Agua Amarga and Marilin projects were completed as planned and within budget”, said Carl Hansen, Cascada’s CEO, “and we are now waiting for assay results from both programs. In the meantime, as we prepare further exploration activities, we will take advantage of the delay in assay turnaround times to catch up on conducting field examinations of potential properties which have been submitted to Cascada for review”.
