Canada-based Great Panther Silver has reported final results from the 8,815.4m surface drill programme on the Topia mine veins.

The drilling will guide mine development to continue to expand silver production from the San Gregorio, Recompensa, and Cantarranas veins.

Drilling on La Prieta property proved the potential to be an additional mine for the Topia operations with high silver values in the three drill holes of up to 2,500g/t over 0.25m.

In addition, mine development on the Cantarranas vein at the Hormiguera Mine has encountered 161m of strike length with an average width of 0.19m grading 1,403g/t silver, 0.88g/t gold, 2.02% lead, and 7.76% zinc.

At Mina 7, on the San Gregorio vein development is ongoing eastward with 90m of strike length on the vein with an average width of 0.43m grading 1,436g/t silver, 0.53g/t gold, 7.26% lead, and 12.23% zinc.

Drilling along the San Gregorio vein was focused on testing the structure between the San Gregorio/Mina 7 mining area and the Durangueno mining area.

Surface drill holes ST10-147 and 148 intersected multiple structures including the well mineralised La Higuera vein, with intersections from drill hole ST10-148 include 777g/t silver, 0.09g/t gold, 2.77% lead, and 8.61% zinc over 1.20m.

The gold-rich Recompensa vein, along with a footwall intermediate zone and the Oliva vein were tested using a man portable drill from sites at Recompensa and highlights include ST10-146 which intersected 0.25m assaying 229g/t silver, 16.5g/t gold, 1.53% lead, and 7.05% zinc.
