Viscount Mining encouraged by potential for widespread silver mineralization at Passiflora target on its Silver Cliff property

Viscount Mining Corp announced new results from the Passiflora target on its Silver Cliff property that showed widespread silver mineralization. The junior company drilled three additional holes at Passiflora during a spring 2021 campaign to follow up on a 193.9-metre-deep hole from 2020 that showed anomalous silver throughout, along with some anomalous gold. Of the newer holes, Hole 20-05 saw silver mineralization throughout the total length of 172.7 metres, while Holes 21-09 and 21-10 also encountered silver mineralization throughout the length of the 183.3-metre bores.

Viscount noted that there was anomalous gold mineralization throughout both Holes 21-09 and 21-10 taken from Passiflora, particularly in 21-10 where gold mineralization extended over 183.3 metres. Silver Cliff exploration manager Jacob Hooker told investors that the company sees “immense potential” at the Passiflora target. “Intensifying phyllic alteration is visibly evident in drill core from numerous Passiflora holes to the depth of around 200 metres,” Hooker said in a statement. “This information, paired with the known volcanic history of the region, suggests that a porphyry system could lie beneath.” Located in Colorado’s Hardscrabble Silver District, Silver Cliff is a 2,319-hectare property where high-grade silver, gold and base metals were mined until the early twentieth century. Vancouver-based Viscount Mining is a project generator and an exploration company with a portfolio of silver and gold properties in the western US.
