Canada-based Huldra Silver has provided assay results from an ore stockpile of adit and raise materials removed during development work from 1987-1989 at Treasure Mountain in the Similkameen Mining Division, British Columbia.

The samples were taken between 25 and 26 September 2010 by independent QP Erik Ostensoe, and averaged 645 gm/t Ag, 5.05% Pb and 3.2% Zn.

The existing stockpiles had nine trenches cut over the entire width at varying depths and each of the nine composite samples were taken over the entire length of each trench, and they were analysed at the ACME laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The stockpiles contain an estimated 6000 tonnes of ore based on surface measurements of the existing piles.

The company is currently exploring options for custom milling of the ore and has placed corresponding metallurgical samples in storage pending the outcome, and has also received $0.16m in British Columbia Mineral Exploration Tax Credits (METC) for the years 2007-2009.
