Silver Fields sampling ore dump

Recoverable silver values may lie in former mine waste

 

In an attempt to raise funds for its drilling activities on Silver Fields’ Keremeos silver project located on Mount Richter, between Keremeos and Osoyoos, Silverfields Resources has been mapping and sampling the waste dump which contains material from the original mine tunnel excavation.

A visual inspection of the waste dump material has discovered samples containing visible silver. If the assays from the sampling are significant, Silverfields intends to rebuild the road leading to dump area and extract the product for shipping to the nearest mill for processing.

 

Permitting has been applied for and approved for the project; negotiations are continuing with the land owners and discussions have been ongoing with several companies which have the capability of processing the ore.
