TSXV: VIPR, OTC:VIPRF
As we shut out Q1 2021 and replicate on latest months, we’re extraordinarily happy with the place the Firm is positioned. Our geological crews are working easily and safely within the subject, due to complete security protocols which at the moment are a routine a part of camp life. In collaboration with our drilling contractor, we constructed a wholesome working setting for our most beneficial belongings, our folks. Just lately, our staff moved into a brand new workplace construction erected on website, a big improve from the tents which additionally served as workplaces and dormitories since late 2018.
At this time, fieldwork at La Virginia continues to increase information alongside the identified mineralized tendencies, and naturally, diamond drilling additionally constantly provides to the information of mineralized zones recognized on the El Rubi discovery zone.
As you might be conscious, drilling successes at El Rubi over the past 6 months are trigger for nice celebration. A string of mineralized intervals has been reported from El Rubi over the previous few months, not least of which being the extraordinarily thrilling high-grade zone from gap LV21-289 , with a finest interval of 19.30 metres averaging 363 g/t silver and 21.2 g/t gold . This interval displays the El Rubi breccia, a northwest trending, silver-gold bearing fault zone forming the jap restrict of the mineralization at El Rubi. Additionally intercepted earlier than the high-grade hit in the identical gap is a broad zone of mineralization averaging 18 g/t silver and 0.69 g/t gold over a downhole size of 130 metres. See press launch of the Firm dated March 1 , 2021. This type of mineralization has been noticed on adjoining sections to the north and is assumed to characterize an extension of the “Western Zone”, a broad space of disseminated mineralization occupying the footwall block of the El Rubi construction.
Getting into Q1 2021, our focus was to supply the mission’s first ever mineral useful resource estimate, and I’m glad to report this work may be very near completion. The footprint of the mineralized zone extends for about 500 metres in size inside a hall 250 metres vast. Drill intercepts have been made on this zone to a vertical depth of 300 metres.
Wireframes and block fashions are full, and the method now awaits one of many remaining steps, which is pit shell design. For this stage to run effectively, and to make sure the benefits of topography are realized, we require an in depth floor mannequin. This floor mannequin is very necessary in initiatives affected by steep terrain, and we anxiously await receipt of a brand new Digital Elevation Mannequin (DEM).
An in depth DEM produced from knowledge collected by LiDAR know-how can show an especially efficient exploration device. As such, we commissioned a drone-based survey to be run in late 2019. Sadly, obvious work backlogs along with Covid-19 associated delays in early 2020 precipitated our job to be postponed a number of occasions. By late 2020, we determined to cancel the contract in favour of a fixed-wing LiDAR survey. Initially scheduled for January 2021 , we encountered additional, minor delays together with elevated wait occasions for logistics, allowing and worldwide motion of apparatus and employees throughout this troublesome time. We’re extraordinarily happy to report all challenges and delays have been overcome, and the plane was capable of fly over the mission final weekend.
The lead-time for supply of the DEM is roughly 2-Three weeks from the date of flying. We anticipate to have this product in our fingers, on the earliest, in about 2 weeks. At the moment, we are going to ship the information for inclusion within the pit shell design and would anticipate to have the preliminary useful resource numbers by the top of the month. We’re all very excited for the arrival of these numbers, as a maiden useful resource is a significant milestone for any mission.
As you realize, this mission has a comparatively brief historical past, and early on, Silver Viper acknowledged the thrilling potential of this under-explored area. When the mission was acquired in June 2018 , the historic dataset that accompanied it contained knowledge from 188 drillholes, totaling about 52,635 metres drilled from 2010-2013. Previous to this, solely restricted artisanal type workings existed.
On the time of writing, Silver Viper is within the strategy of drilling gap LV21-298, its 110 th drillhole on the mission. Up to now, Silver Viper has added 30,595 metres of drilling to the database, the vast majority of which helped to outline its latest mineralized zone, El Rubi. In 2021, we stay up for one other giant program to increase upon the maiden useful resource and to make model new discoveries on among the untested anomalies throughout the mission.
I wish to thank our shareholders and colleagues for his or her help and persistence as we transfer ahead. Although the delays skilled have been irritating, we’re extraordinarily grateful to our employees and contractors for his or her efforts to beat the challenges dealing with our business throughout this troublesome time. We’re excited to see progress, and we stay up for completion of the mission’s maiden useful resource estimate and the continued exploration on the El Rubi discovery. I consider we’re in for one more thrilling yr at La Virginia, and within the valuable metals sector.
