RENO, NV--(Marketwired - April 03, 2014) - Magellan Gold Corporation (OTCBB: MAGE) ("Magellan" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has all of the necessary permits and started core drilling at its Papago target located within the Company's 100% optioned Silver District project in La Paz County, Arizona.
Based on drilling by previous operators and the width and intensity of the hydrothermal alteration and veining, Papago is one of the better developed targets for the expansion of identified mineralization in the Silver District and confirmation of historical drill tests. The initial phase of drilling will consist of two holes totaling 750 feet.
President and CEO, John Power, stated, "I am very excited to be drilling at Papago and hope this is the first step in unlocking the potential of this 19th century mining district that was put back on the map in the 1970s through the exploration efforts of NYSE listed Gulf & Western Industries."
