Northair Expands Drilling at La Cigarra Silver Project, Mexico
International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSXV: INM) (the "Company" or "Northair") is pleased to announce that an expanded diamond drill program has commenced at the La Cigarra silver project. The property is located in north central Mexico and covers three attractive silver mineralized zones along a three kilometre favourable geological trend.
The drill program currently underway has been expanded by a minimum of 3,000 metres. This program will focus in the area of recent drill results from the San Gregorio zone (80.45 metres of 123.5 g/t silver in hole CC-11-002) and include drilling at the Las Carolinas and La Borracha zones. The additional core drilling will provide the Company with a much better understanding of the geology and related structures within the zones, all of which remain open along strike and down dip, and assist in planning for future exploration of the property.
Pending Drill Results from Initial Holes
Results from the initial phase of the diamond drill program are pending for two additional holes completed in the San Gregorio Zone (drilled along strike to the south of CC-11-002) as well as two holes from the Las Carolinas Zone. Results for all drill holes will be released once assays are received and interpreted by the Company.
About La Cigarra Silver Project
The La Cigarra Project is located in State of Chihuahua along the eastern fringes of the Sierra Madre Occidental in Mexico. Local topography is gentle with good road access to the major city of Parral, located 26 kilometres to the south east. The La Cigarra Project hosts a silver-rich, epithermal mineral system with three identified zones along a three kilometre trend. Mineralization is controlled by a northwest striking fault system that has localized silver (lead, zinc, copper and gold) mineralization hosted in sediments and related to rhyolite dikes and flows. Grupo Northair de Mexico, S.A. de C.A., a subsidiary of Northair, can acquire a 100% property ownership by making payments over a 5 year period totaling US$445,000 with no royalties.
Sampling and QA/QC
All technical information for the La Cigarra exploration program is obtained and reported under a formal quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program. Samples are taken under the direction of qualified geologists and stored in sealed bags. Samples are delivered by the Company via courier to ALS Chemex Labs in Chihuahua for drying, crushing and pulverizing; with the pulps sent airfreight by ALS Chemex to Vancouver BC for analysis. Systematic assaying of standards and blanks are performed for precision and accuracy. Analysis for silver, zinc, lead and copper and related trace elements was done by ICP four acid digestion, with gold analysis by 30 gram fire assay with an AA finish.
