Pan American Silver extends mineralization at the La Colorada Skarn project – QNT Press Release


VANCOUVER, BC, May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Pan American Silver Corp. (NASDAQ:PAAS) (TSX:PAAS) (“Pan American” or the “Company”) today provides results for 43 new infill and exploration drill holes totaling 38,460 metres, all of which contain multiple skarn and breccia intercepts. Highlights include infill hole U-04-22 with 233.70 metres at 44g/t Ag, 4.05% Pb and 5.04% Zn and step-out hole U-08-22 with 174.95 metres at 40 g/t Ag, 0.17% Pb and 7.95% Zn and 46.95 metres at 78 g/t Ag, 3.84 % Pb, 8.79% Zn.

“We drilled more metres on the skarn in the first quarter of 2022 than during any other quarterly period, with infill drilling increasing our confidence in the central skarn resource and exploration drilling further defining the extensions to the east, south and west,” said Christopher EmersonPan American’s Vice President Business Development and Geology. “Over 100,000 metres have been drilled on the skarn since the last resource estimate dated August 4, 2020and the program continues with 14 machines. The results from this program will be included in an updated resource estimate that we plan to provide in the third quarter of 2022.”

  • D-62-04-21: 117.10 m of 64 g/t Ag, 0.06% Cu, 2.06% Pb and 3.24% Zn including 53.05 m of 99 g/t Ag, 0.07% Cu, 4.07% Pb and 5.97% Zn and 28.35 m of 157 g/t Ag, 0.02% Cu, 4.56% Pb and 5.82% Zn
  • D-77-01-22: 102.05 m of 58 g/t Ag, 0.13% Cu, 1.42% Pb and 3.43% Zn including 26.65 m of 124 g/t Ag, 0.22% Cu, 2.26% Pb and 5.53% Zn and 15.30 m of 43 g/t Ag, 0.03% Cu, 2.46% Pb and 4.38% Zn

Drilling from an underground platform into the western part of the skarn deposit has successfully expanded the mineralization 120 metres to the northwest with step-out drill holes 105-21, 08-22, 95-21, and 127-21 all containing multiple polymetallic sulphide intercepts up to 175 metres in length, as reported in “Drill Highlights” above. The skarn deposit remains open to the northwest and at depth.

Infill drilling in the central eastern part of the deposit confirmed continuous mineralization over a 400 metre-wide area.

The eastern part of the deposit has been extended 80 metres to the north and south, with infill and exploration drilling from surface platforms defining multiple mineralized intercepts in step-out drill holes D-73-1-21 and D-71-04-21 and D-62-04-21, ranging between 10 to 117 metres wide.

The central part of the deposit was extended 150 metres to the south with step out drilling from surface located at S-90-21 and S-95-21. Six holes (95-04/05/06/07/08 and 09) all reported wide zones of breccia-style mineralization up to 215 metres thick. The deposit remains open to the south.
