Silver Tiger Management Comments

 “We have stepped out 55 meters to the south from our initial discovery hole on the Benjamin Vein and the super high grade silver within wide mineralized zones continues to hold.

“It is apparent that the Benjamin is the northern extension of the Sooy Vein. We will continue to step out south to connect with the main Sooy Vein approximately 900 meters to the south.

“Also, step out in-fill holes 221, 223, 225 and 227 which are located between 330 and 1,085 meters south of Discovery Hole 202 on the Sooy Vein continue to intersect significant silver results. Further southern step out and in-fill drilling continues on the Sooy Vein.”

Silver Tiger – El Tigre Mining District

The El Tigre historic mine district is located in Sonora, Mexico and lies at the northern end of the Sierra Madre silver and gold belt which hosts many epithermal silver and gold deposits, including Dolores, Santa Elena and Las Chispas at the northern end. 

In 1896, gold was first discovered on the property in the Gold Hill area and mining started with the Brown Shaft in 1903.  The focus soon changed to mining high-grade silver veins in the area with production coming from 3 parallel veins the El Tigre Vein, the Seitz Kelley Vein and the Sooy Vein. 

Underground mining on the middle El Tigre vein extended 1,450 meters along strike and was mined on 14 levels to a depth of approximately 450 meters.  The Seitz Kelley Vein was mined along strike for 1 kilometer to a depth of approximately 200 meters.  The Sooy Vein was only mined along strike for 250 meters to a depth of approximately 150 meters. 

Mining abruptly stopped on all 3 of these veins when the price of silver collapsed to less than 20¢ per ounce with the onset of the Great Depression.  By the time the mine closed in 1930, it is reported to have produced a total of 353,000 ounces of gold and 67.4 million ounces of silver from 1.87 million tons (Craig, 2012). 

The average grade mined during this period was over 2 kilograms silver equivalent per ton.
