Arizona Silver Exploration Inc (CVE:AZS) (OCTMKTS:AZASF) announced Friday that drilling on its 100%-owned Philadelphia high-grade gold-silver vein property in Arizona hasn’t been hampered by the coronavirus outbreak and “continues to move forward in a timely manner".

“We are encouraged with our findings as we move along strike of the high-grade vein system,” Arizona Silver said.

“We are currently drilling over 1,000 feet away from the initial holes drilled. We continue to see visible coarse gold in the cuttings from most of the drill holes completed to date, and some at greater depths than prior holes. We have increased sample size at the drill rig and initiated a 1 kilogram metallic screen assaying protocol on all drill samples which contained visible gold, and all immediately adjacent drill intervals.” 

The company also said it has submitted a request for proposal to two metallurgical laboratories to complete gravity concentration followed by bottle roll cyanidation test and tail assays to determine total gold content in representative splits from samples containing visible gold. 

Visible gold particles are up to 1.25 millimeters in size which “present challenges in standard fire assay laboratories sampling protocols,” the company said.
