Cascada Silver Updates Agua Amarga Exploration Activities
TORONTO, Ontario, April 29, 2021 – Cascada Silver Corp. (CSE:CSS) ("Cascada") is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing exploration activities at its Agua Amarga silver project located in Chile’s Atacama Region, 30 kilometres south of Vallenar and 5 kilometres east of the Pan American Highway. High grade silver veins were discovered at Agua Amarga in 1811 with mining activities reported until 1881. Reports from 1812 noted silver grades from 86 veins varied from 3,078 to 41,035 grams per tonne.
The geological mapping program has outlined the mined remnants of 105 epithermal silver veins extending over strike lengths of up to 500 metres with widths of up to 2 metres. Eight drill holes, with lengths varying from 175 to 250 metres, are planned to test the silver vein systems at depths between 100 and 175 metres below surface. The depth of the historical mining is not recorded and the poor ground conditions do not allow for a direct examination of the underground workings; however, it is suspected that mining extended to depths of up to 50 metres below surface.
“We are quite eager to advance Agua Amarga to the drilling stage with plans being made to mobilize a drill rig to the site during the month of May”, said Carl Hansen, CEO of Cascada. “Definitive drill targets have been identified with drilling to focus on the wider and more laterally extensive vein systems. While we had anticipated commencing drilling in April, Chilean Covid-19 protocols have slowed exploration activities throughout the country.”
The remnant veins are hosted within a 250 to 300 metre thick limestone sequence with vein emplacement controlled by north and north-northeast trending, steeply dipping fault structures. The faults occur within the limestone as well as at the contact between intrusive porphyritic andesites and the limestone unit.
