Cantex Mine Development (CD) is releasing a new round of exploration results.

The results come from drilling of the Main Zone of the company’s 100-per-cent-owned 14,077-hectare North Rackla claim block in the Yukon.

Three out of five holes from the 2022 fall drill program extended the Main Zone mineralization 150 metres further to the northeast than had been previously identified, bringing the zone’s strike length to 2,300 metres.

One step-out hole intersected 23.5 metres of 20.46 grams per tonne of silver and 8.34 percent combined lead and zinc.

“Where lead or zinc values exceeded one percent, the Pb-OG62 or Zn-OG62 techniques were used. These have upper limits of 20 percent lead and 30 percent zinc, respectively. Samples with lead and zinc values over these limits were then analyzed by titration methods Pb-VOL70 and Zn-VOL50. Where silver samples exceeded 100 g/t, the Ag-OG62 technique was used, which has an upper limit of 1,500 g/t. The over limit analyses contributed to delays in receiving final assay results,” the British Columbia-based company said in a release Thursday.

Further lab analysis is pending.

Cantex Mine Development is up 17.65 percent, trading at $0.20 at 1:30 p.m. EST.
