VANCOUVER, British Columbia and HONG KONG, Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reyna Silver Corp. (TSXV: RSLV; OTCQX: RSNVF; FRA: 4ZC) (“Reyna” or the “Firm”) is happy to report outcomes from the primary seven holes totaling 1,095 meters of its 10,000-meter Stage 1 drilling program, on its 100% owned Batopilas Undertaking in Southwestern Chihuahua, Mexico. The primary 5 holes BA21-29 to BA21-33 have been focused beneath exploration trenches reduce in 2020 that exposed vein buildings carrying coarse native silver typical of the Batopilas district (see Determine 2). Holes BA21-34 and 35 have been drilled alongside the Teodoro Vein the place 2020 trench sampling discovered high-grade gold values not beforehand encountered within the district (See press launch of February 4, 2021).
- Gap BA21-30, the second gap drilled, efficiently reduce a local silver bearing vein (see Determine 3) roughly 35 meters beneath one of the best of the 2020 trenches. BA21-30 reported 3.2 m (core size) grading 3.03 g/t gold and 703 g/t silver, together with 0.20 m (core size) of native silver grading 10,565 g/t silver and 0.85 m (core size) grading 8.74 g/t gold. This result’s important as it’s a newly found native silver vein 2 km NE strike line extension to the historic Cobriza vein, a local silver vein (see Determine 1). This vein extension was found by our trenching program in late 2020 and that is the primary time the realm has been drilled.
- Gap BA21-34, the sixth gap drilled within the marketing campaign, and the primary gap within the Teodoro Vein Gold Zone, focused 25 m beneath the floor expression of the vein reduce from 45.7 to 45.95 meters or 1.50 m (core size) grading 4.88 g/t gold and 10.67 g/t silver, together with 0.25 m (core size) grading 28.7 g/t gold and 59 g/t silver. That is additionally the primary time the zone has been drilled.
Highlights of the assay outcomes of this system to this point are offered under in Desk 1. A full checklist of assays with location maps and subject images could also be discovered on Reyna’s web site www.reynasilver.com.
“Batopilas is Mexico’s traditionally highest-grade silver district, and we’re delighted to have reduce native silver within the second gap drilled beneath the brand new veins we uncovered by trenching final 12 months. We all know from historic data that Batopilas native silver our bodies can swell quickly from a couple of centimeters to a meter or extra, so we’re actually wanting ahead to offsetting these early widely-spaced holes to see if now we have latched onto one thing huge,” stated Jorge Ramiro Monroy, Reyna Silver’s President and CEO. “Reducing gold at Teodoro is a welcome bonus that doubtlessly opens a wholly new aspect of this prolific district and our group is tough at work on that.”
“The elevated gold that we’re encountering on this northeastern a part of the district is a really nice shock now we have not seen throughout earlier work within the historic mining heart,” stated Dr. Peter Megaw, Reyna Silver’s Chief Exploration Advisor. “Notably the gold and silver don’t appear to happen in the identical core intervals, so it stays to be seen if we’re taking a look at totally different levels of mineralization or totally different sources.”

Gap BA21-30 was the second gap drilled within the new 2021 exploration marketing campaign. The opening was focused beneath a collection of trenches reduce in 2020 (see Determine 1) alongside the projection of the vein developments from the historic western portion of the district. These trenches have been reduce by alluvium cowl and uncovered the blind native silver bearing “Cobriza” vein in a chloritized clastic andesite host rock. The native silver mineralization happens in huge calcite gangue accompanied by traces of sunshine coloured “honey” sphalerite, which is traditionally identified to be current within the extremes of Batopilas native silver ore shoots.
Gap BA21-34 was the sixth gap of the 2021 marketing campaign and the primary within the Teodoro vein space the place excessive gold grades have been present in 2020 trenching (see Determine 1). In distinction to the silver-rich Cobriza vein, the Teodoro is a gold-rich, quartz dominant vein breccia with plentiful pyrite.

Batopilas is known as Mexico’s highest-grade silver district, having produced an estimated 200-300 million ounces of silver from native-silver wealthy calcite veins averaging 200 ounces per ton silver. The native silver ore shoots happen sporadically alongside throughgoing buildings traceable for a number of kilometers throughout the district. Historic mining proceeded by following these veins, typically mere 1 to 2 cm calcite seams, till they opened up into 1 to 4m extensive, steeply inclined shoots 30-80m extensive on stage and as a lot as 350m tall. Colonial period mining dominantly labored downwards from the floor, whereas the final organized mining within the district (1879-1913) was undertaken from tunnels pushed at river stage beneath the colonial workings. These fashionable efforts have been interrupted by the Mexican Revolution in 1913 lengthy earlier than the deeper tunnels might be pushed beneath most of the colonial period workings.
Reyna Silver’s exploration program within the district is targeted on tracing the identified and projected native-silver bearing veins into the much less explored and exploited elements of the district utilizing floor mapping, trenching and satellite tv for pc imagery. Reyna’s deliberate 10,000 meters, Stage 1 drilling marketing campaign started in June 2021 and is on-going.
Reyna Silver, follows business customary procedures for diamond core drilling and pattern evaluation. Drilling is carried out utilizing NQ and HQ dimension tooling. Drill core is reduce in half utilizing a diamond rock noticed with one-half of the core then taken as a pattern for evaluation and the opposite one as a register. Pattern intervals are typically from 0.2 to 2 m intervals, producing samples of between 0.6 to 10 kg. Half-core samples are delivered to the internationally licensed ALS Minerals laboratory services in Chihuahua metropolis the place the samples are ready. ALS has a High quality administration system (ISO 17025) and Assays are accomplished by ALS Minerals in Canada. The samples are fireplace assayed for Au (Au-23) and are analyzed for Ag and multi-elements utilizing technique code ICP (ICP-41) following an aqua regia digestion. Over limits are analyzed utilizing an acceptable technique. Multi-element geochemical requirements and blanks or duplicates are inserted systematically into the drill core sampling collection to watch lab efficiency. The management samples are inserted every 25 samples within the case of requirements, blanks, and subject duplicates, and for rejects and pulps duplicates every 30 samples intercalated. Referent to the chain of custody the samples are transported from Batopilas by personal Reyna Silver private to ALS Chemex in Chihuahua Metropolis.
