International Northair Mines Adds Another Drill at La Cigarra Project, Mexico
International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSXV: INM) (the "Company" or "Northair") is pleased to announce that an additional core drill rig is on site to expedite the drill program underway at its La Cigarra silver project ("the Project"), located in north central Mexico.
"A second core drill rig has been added to accelerate and enhance the ongoing drill program at La Cigarra." said Fred Hewett, President & CEO of Northair. "The Company is taking this step to ensure that the timeline for the Project's initial resource estimate stays on track and is delivered in Q3 2012."
Northair is currently conducting a major core drill program focused on defining the San Gregorio and Las Carolinas zones and step out drilling to test the intervening prospective areas between these two zones. Based on drilling to date, a mineralized system has been clearly identified along a 2,000 metre trend, which encompasses both the San Gregorio and Las Carolinas Zones. Results from 11 reverse circulation and 50 core holes reported within the 2,000 metre identified system have all returned significant silver values with an average length-weighted grade of approximately 50 g/t silver and additional anomalous gold, lead and zinc values. Drilling has tested the system to approximately 200 metres down dip where similar grade silver values were encountered. The system remains open along strike and down dip.
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 Minerals ("ALS") in Chihuahua and Inspectorate America Corporation ("Inspectorate") in Durango City. In both cases the samples are dried, crushed and pulverized with the pulps being sent airfreight for analysis by ALS to Vancouver B.C. and by Inspectorate to Vancouver B.C. or Reno, Nevada. 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.
