CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 1, 2014) - Silver Mountain Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMM) ("Silver Mountain" or the "Company") is pleased to release its year-end financial statements on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and an updated NI 43-101 Technical Report for its wholly-owned Ptarmigan Property (the "Property"), located near Radium, British Columbia.
Modeling the 2013 gravity data from the detailed grid area has returned several exciting anomalies for subsequent follow-up in 2014. Two West-East sections (http://www.silvermountainmines.com/maps.asp) illustrate the results of modeling with respect to schematic results of relatively shallow diamond drilling to date. The two sections show representative, near surface drill intercepts of high grade Silver and Gold mineralization interpreted as several sub vertical parallel lenses and/or pods, up to 8m in horizontal thickness.
Gravity modeling and drill results from 100 drill holes are interpreted to suggest potential for significant mineralization at depth. Mineralization intersected to date is interpreted to represent high level expressions of the larger potentially mineralized gravity anomalies identified at depth. The potential grade of expected mineralization is anticipated to be similar to drill grades from intercepts previously released in 2012 and surface sampling throughout the basin and sampling from the adits. (http://www.silvermountainmines.com/reports.asp)
The lateral expression of the gravity anomalies is supported by the results of surface sampling that extends over 2 km along a north-trending fault system and exemplified by the Iron Cap Trend, Hidden Vein and the West Zone. Surface mineralization, together with mineralized intercepts from drilling, defines multiple mineralized zones open along strike and to depth in the Ptarmigan and Iron Cap basins.
Gravity anomalies are interpreted to represent composite manto- and vein-style mineralization consisting of a network of high grade silver sulphide and/or sulphosalt mineralization developed between manto- and vein-style occurrences. Mineralization is hosted within favourable horizons in the carbonate succession of the Middle Dolomite of the Mount Nelson Formation.
"The compilation of our ground and airborne geophysics, surface sampling, trenching and over 11,000 m of diamond drilling results has been incorporated in our exploration model, which has provided us with an expectation of intersecting semi-massive to massive, high grade precious metals in the 2014 drill program," says Steve Konopelky, President and CEO.
