Blackrock (BRC) has drilled 3,322 g/t silver eq. over 1.5 m within 4.5 m of 1,399 g/t silver eq. at Tonopah West in Nevada, among other standout results.

Highlights

Hole TW21-068 intersected 16 g/t Au and 1,722 g/t Ag within 4.5 m grading 6.56 g/t Au and 743 g/t Ag on the strike extension of the Merton vein, which now has 1.5 km of mineralized strike with high-grade shoots showing up to 400 m of vertical elevation.

At the Victor Target, TW21-077 cut two zones grading 3.075 g/t Au and 310 g/t Ag over 3 m, and 2.139 g/t Au and 230 g/t Ag over 7.6 m including 1.5 m grading 4.89 g/t Au and 512 g/t Ag.

The Victor/Murray veins system has 500 m of strike from the Eastern project boundary to the Pittsburgh-Monarch fault system.

Hole TW21-093C, a step-out along the Victor/Murray veins system, cut 1.93 g/t Au and 203 g/t Ag over 0.8 m.

Blackrock also discovered a new mineralized vein on the footwall side of the Pittsburgh-Monarch fault system with 2.2 m grading 1.53 g/t Au and 141 g/t Ag in TW21-092C and 3.9 m grading 0.48 g/t Au and 67 g/t Ag in TW21-033C.

Additionally, the first hole of the core in-fill drilling program on the Denver vein returned 3.1 m yielding 1.3 g/t Au and 136 g/t Ag. The result demonstrates 600 m of mineralized strike with a vertical extent spanning several hundred metres.

DPB Target

The Merton vein shows two high-grade silver-gold zones. The upper zone shows values ranging from 554 g/t AgEq to 3,039 g/t AgEq along a constant elevation.

The second zone appears associated with the intersection of the Merton vein with the high-angle Bermuda vein. Silver and gold values range between 386.8 g/t AgEq to 3,322 g/t AgEq.

Drilling at the Paymaster vein has encountered 1.2 km of mineralized strike with high-grade shoots highlighting a vertical elevation beyond 300 m.

Additional core drilling is ongoing to produce the first resource estimate for the Denver, Paymaster, Bermuda and Merton vein system. The company anticipates the estimate by year's end.

Victor Target

Drilling on the Victor vein continues to generate success along strike to the East. 

Drilling to the West has identified a new vein between the Pittsburgh-Monarch and McKane faults. The vein has potential for 600 m of strike.

2021 Exploration

Blackrock has completed over half of its 2021 exploration and resource definition programs.

Core drills are focused on Victor Target and DPB resource delineation while the RC drill continues to evaluate step-out targets on the project.

Andrew Pollard, Blackrock's President and CEO, commented,

"This silver-gold project continues to deliver world class results as drilling advances, expanding the footprint of known mineralization, both along strike and at depth.

With more assays pending, four rigs in operation, and 17,000 m of drilling remaining for our 2021 program, investors have a lot to look forward to in the near term."

Blackrock Silver is a junior gold-focused exploration company on a quest to make an economic discovery.

Blackrock Silver (BRC) is up by 6.25 per cent and is currently trading at $0.85 per share as of 1:39 pm ET.
