Silver Range Resources Ltd. is advancing a district of silver-bearing mineral zones at its wholly-owned Silver Range Project, located in an area of exceptional infrastructure near the town of Faro, Yukon Territory.
The 39.76 million tonne Keg Deposit
is one of 26 mineralized zones that have been discovered to date at the 1,100 sq km Silver Range Project. At the Hammer Zone, drilling has traced high grade silver mineralization over a 600 metre strike and a vertical range of 280 metres with bonanza-grade silver intercepts up to 4,620 g/t over 0.53 metres. The Hammer Zone is only 12 km from the Faro mine and mill site, once Canada's largest open-pit lead-zinc operation and part of a 17 km long Mount Mye mineralized belt. To the north, the sub-parallel Tay Trend extends for a 70 km length and hosts numerous bulk-tonnage and high grade showings, including the Keg Deposit and the newly discovered Owl Southwest Zone, where first-pass drilling retuned 5,370 g/t silver over 0.34 m. Multiple other priority targets have been outlined and await further and/or initial drill testing.
At the wholly-owned Mint gold-copper-molybdenum porphyry project located in southwestern Yukon, broadly-spaced drilling returned anomalous gold values to 0.556 g/t gold over 53.0 m.
