Tinka Resources Limited announced assay results for three recent drill holes at the Company’s 100%-owned Ayawilca project in Peru. Hole A19-165 has returned some of the best zinc intersections ever drilled at South Ayawilca, both from within and immediately outside of the zinc resource boundary. The hole intercepted four separate, gently dipping mineralized zones with downhole thicknesses of between 9 and 29 metres and grading between 11.8% and 14.0% zinc, within a cumulative downhole interval of 170 metres. Hole A19-167, a recently completed and deepened 2017 drill hole, intersected very high grade silver mineralization accompanied by base metals over a narrow 1.7 metre interval approximately 100 metres beneath the existing Zinc Zone resource, within a wider zone of lower grade silver mineralization associated with strongly altered Pucara limestone.The silver intersection in hole A19-167 lies 80 metres from the silver intersection in hole A19-163. This new “Silver Zone” discovery supports Tinka´s view that Ayawilca still has significant exploration potential, including upside for precious metals.
