Silver North outlines 2024 Tim drilling program

2024-03-27 12:50 ET - News Release

Mr. Jason Weber reports


Silver North Resources Ltd. has outlined its plans for the 2024 drilling program at the Tim property, under option to Coeur Mining Inc. Coeur intends to commence exploration on the property in June, and plans to complete approximately 2,000 metres of drilling targeting silver-lead-zinc carbonate replacement deposit (CRD) mineralization similar to that found at Coeur's Silvertip mine property, 19 kilometres to the south of Tim.

Rob Duncan, vice-president, exploration, for Silver North, states: "We are excited to see drilling at Tim this year. Coeur has carried out an excellent program leading to this drill test. With their knowledge and experience exploring the CRD system(s) in the Silvertip district, we are able to leverage this expertise in our efforts to bring a new silver discovery to bear for our shareholders."

Coeur is planning to commence the 2024 program in June, with the intention of completing drilling, geochemical sampling, and drill pad and access development, with crews operating out of the Silvertip mine camp. Approximately 2,000 metres of drilling is planned from up to six drill pads, testing the potential for CRD-style mineralization along almost 2,000 metres of strike length of prospective stratigraphy. Previous work has identified silver mineralization in trenches dating back to the 1980s. A 2022 program conducted by Coeur to verify previous trench sampling returned 468.1 grams per tonne silver, 21.1 per cent lead and 0.3 per cent zinc over four metres from one reopened trench. Another, located approximately 200 metres along strike, returned 265 g/t silver, 6.7 per cent lead and 0.9 per cent zinc over 8.8 metres. Silver North views Tim as a high-priority exploration target as it exhibits similar geological characteristics to Coeur's Silvertip project.

The 2024 program will be conducted under the direction of Coeur's exploration team based at Silvertip, under the terms of an option agreement granting Coeur the right to earn a 51-per-cent interest in the property by completing a minimum of $3.15-million in additional exploration expenditures and making additional cash payments to Silver North totalling $275,000 by Dec. 31, 2026. Coeur can bring its interest to 80 per cent by making additional cash payments of $100,000 per year in 2027 and 2028, completing a positive feasibility study, and informing Silver North of its intention to develop a mine at Tim by Dec. 16, 2028. Under this agreement, Coeur must finance a minimum $700,000 program in 2024. Tim is road accessible via 25 km of four by four access off the Silvertip mine road.
