RENO, NV, June 30 /CNW/ - Silver Reserve has entered into a contract with
Christiansen Drilling, Inc. of Ely, Nevada.
The Company plans to carry out up to 50,000 feet of drilling on the
Medicine Project under this contract. The objective is to expand on the
350,000 tons of drill indicated resource with an average grade of 2.5 ounce
silver, 5% lead, 8% zinc and 12% barite. The indicated resource was not
drilled off beyond 100 feet of depth and is believed to extend deeper into the
sulphide zone. The mineralized zone extends beyond the area drilled, into
claims controlled by the Company. The operator at the time of drilling was
looking for leachable material and dropped the property when recovery grade
and silver price proved it uneconomical. The opportunity is present for
expansion of the resource into a substantial open pit mine. Drilling will
commence in July, 2008 following completion of the first drill program on the
Silver Queen Project.
The Company plans to carry out 20,000 feet of drilling on the Silver
Queen Project to trace the extension along strikes and down dip from the
Mohawk and Silver Queen mines. A newly discovered surface anomaly with
significant silver, lead and zinc grades and measuring 600 feet wide by 1000
feet long is a primary drill target for a new discovery on this claim group.
The initial drill program of 7,000 feet has commenced. 4000 feet will be
drilled to test the anomaly and 3000 feet will be drilled to test the vein
extension down dip and along strike from the Mohawk Mine where historical ore
reserve reports show 532,900 ounces of silver with lead and zinc credits are
