HULDRA SILVER PROVIDES BULK SAMPLE UPDATE FOR TREASURE MOUNTAIN
Vancouver, British Columbia – February 8, 2012 – Huldra Silver Inc. (TSX-V:HDA) (the “Company” or “Huldra”) today provides a further update on the 10,000 tonne underground bulk sample program at its 100% owned Treasure Mountain Property. Underground chip sample results have been received from the first five lifts of the stope. The average grade of the samples over the mined width are 994.5 g/tonne Ag, 5.84% Zn, 3.4% Mn, 7.55% Pb. The following table provides a complete list of all 30 samples received to date:
Note: The samples are taken on 5 metre intervals across the full width of the underground stope. The 9 samples from the first level of the stope (P1-L1-1 to P1-L1-9) are an estimated average width as the actual samples included dilution from both hanging wall and footwall material. The samples are for estimated mining grade purposes only. The actual grade of the material will be determined during processing of the material.
The 10,000 tonne underground bulk sample commenced in November, 2011 and has currently been mined over a length of 75 metres and a height of 21 metres, with an average width of 1.5 metres. Material removed is currently being stockpiled at the Company’s mill site in Merritt, BC.
Ryan Sharp, CEO, states, “We are extremely pleased with these results. This information is being used to plan further development of the underground mine and exceeds our expectations.”
All samples are delivered by truck to Acme Analytical Laboratories’ facility in Vancouver, BC, where the sample is crushed, split and pulverized to -200 mesh. A 0.5 gram portion of the pulp is then digested in hot aqua regia and analyzed for 31 elements by ICP MS method. Over limits for Ag is by fire assay with gravimetric finish, and for Pb, Zn and Mn by multi-acid digestion and ICP ES finish.
