VANCOUVER, Sept. 20 /CNW/ - Chris England, President of Silver Fields
Resources Inc., ("Silver Fields") is pleased to announce the Company has
received the results of assays done on core from diamond drilling carried out
on its JE Silver property, located in Saunders County, in the State of
The drill hole SN-6 showed potentially important copper and silver values
starting at the 1,576 foot level which was defined as the top of the Lower
part of the Revett Formation. The entire section of the hole from the top of
the Lower Revette to the bottom of the hole (1,900 feet) comprises an interval
of 324 feet, with an average grade of 0.216% copper and 0.41 oz per ton
silver. The hole was terminated for technical reasons, while still in
Within this mineralized section are two higher grade zones. The Upper
Zone from the 1,658 foot to the 1,788 foot level, comprising a 130 foot
interval, averaged 0.252% copper and 0.53 oz per ton silver. The Lower Zone
from the 1,824 foot to the 1,900 foot level, comprised an interval of 72 feet,
averaging 0.339% copper and 0.615 oz/ton silver.
Evaluation of the SN-6 hole shows that long sections of the Lower Revette
Formation, contain significant quantities of chalcocite, bornite and native
silver mineralization. The core hole was terminated in mineralized quartzite
and will be drilled deeper when the appropriate (smaller core) equipment is
available. Casing was left in the hole to facilitate this further program.
The lengths of the mineralized intervals quoted above are core lengths.
The true widths are not known because insufficient drilling has been done to
determine the geometry of the mineralized zones. Historically, copper-silver
mineralization in the area has been strata-bound and sub-horizontal; if this
were the case, true widths would be close to core lengths in a vertical hole.
