    VANCOUVER, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - Mexivada Mining Corp. is pleased to report the
completion of the second core drill hole of its 2000 metre Phase 1 drilling
program at its La Republica silver-gold-zinc-lead property,Yécora District,
Chihuahua, Mexico. Drill hole LR-07-2 tested north of drillhole LR-07-1 and
north of the Main Stope zone, where more than 5,000,000 ounces of silver was
produced historically from high-grade silver-gold ore mined between 1906 and
1912, which assayed up to 5.99 kilograms per tonne ("kg/t") silver and up to
8.56 g/t gold. The base of the mineralized zone in the Main Stope was
particularly rich locally, with assays to 51 kg/t silver reported. The
historic mine production information above is for reference only, and the
reader should not infer or assert that the information is correct, reliable,
or accurate and should not be relied upon.
    Mexivada's drillhole LR-07-2 intercepted 6 metres of gray, highly
silica-sulfide replaced fault breccia between 165 and 171 metres. Visual
coarse sulfosalt mineralization, possibly tetrahedrite, to 1 millimetre in
size was noted in the basal part of the fault zone between 170 and 171 metres
in the core. This zone has a true width of nearly 6 metres, and indicates a
probable continuation of the Main Stope to the north toward the Polverine
zone. Additionally, rhyolitic porphyry dikes are present in the footwall,
similar to hole LR-07-1, to a depth of 179 metres, and altered andesites with
up to 3 percent contained pyrite were ALSO present in LR-07-2 to a depth of
206 metres, where a late, non-mineralized fault was encountered and the
drillhole was terminated. While mineralization was noted in portions of the
drillhole, no conclusions can be drawn as to the grade or extent of the
mineralization prior to the receipt of assays. The drill samples are being
sawed and delivered for fire assay to ALS Laboratories in Hermosillo.
    Mexivada's third drillhole is being collared north of LR-07-2, targeting
the Polverine zone, where Mexivada sampled and assayed a 2 metre thick zone of
breccia from the Republica Fault Zone that assayed 1,230 g/t silver, 0.88%
zinc, 0.31% lead, and 0.2 g/t gold.
