Copper Silver Mineralization Intensifies in Fourth Fence Drilled at Silver Hill, Morocco – Big News Network

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 14, 2021 / Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-V:TM) (‘Trigon’ or the ‘Company’) announces assay results from holes S22 through S25. The holes complete the easternmost fence drilled to test the geometry and extent of the copper and silver mineralization at the Silver Hill project (‘Silver Hill’ or the ‘Project’) in Morocco. The results comprise the fourth of four fences drilled at the Project.

Each of the holes demonstrated strong copper and silver mineralization. Two of the four holes show 30 metres of continuous mineralization. This fence of holes was drilled at the eastern extent of the drilling of this campaign and suggests that mineralization is intensifying in this direction.


  • Hole S23: 32 metres of 0.77% copper and 28.5 g/t silver including;
    • 11 metres @ 1.01% copper and 37 g/t silver; and,
    • 12 metres @ 0.96% copper and 41 g/t silver
  • Hole S24: 30 metres of 0.73% copper and 21 g/t silver, including;
    • 13 metres @ 0.91% copper and 39 g/t silver; and,
    • 5 metres @ 0.98% copper and 20 g/t silver

See Table 1 below for detailed assay results from holes S22 — S25.

The four fences of drilling cover a relatively shallow well-mineralized area of about 750 metres in length and 200 metres wide that appears to open to the east, west and north.

Jed Richardson, President and CEO of Trigon Metals, said, ‘These holes represent some of the strongest mineralization we have seen in the four fences drilled. Our high grade trench [13 metres 2.7% copper, 34.5 g/t silver and 82ppm cobalt (reported February 21,2021)] lies almost 2 km east of this last fence. Our work over the next months will be determining if the two zones form one continuous zone of mineralization, parallel structures or separate but related bodies.’

Drill core was analyzed by AfriLab, an independent SGS accredited laboratory in Marrakech. The Company is pleased with its progress, as geologists are attaining a more comprehensive understanding of the nature and size of the mineralization at the Project.
