VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Telson Mining Corporation (“Telson” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture – TSN) is pleased to report significant assay results from underground development on the El Creston Zone at its Tahuehueto Mine development and construction Project in Durango State, Mexico.
Tahuehueto underground development within the El Creston Zone (see Figure 1), has returned significant grades over appreciable widths. Channel sampling results received to date are presented below. (see Figure 2 & Figure 3) Additional channel sampling have been collected within the El Creston Zone from mineralization exposed during underground development and results will be disclosed when assay results are received by the Company.
|Au (g/t)||Ag (g/t)||Cu %||Pb %||Zn %||AuEq (g/t)|
The above results are the weighted average of a series of samples, generally no more that 1meter in width collected from a continuous channel sample across the mineralized structure. For detailed individual assay results for the above sample widths <click here>.
Gold Equivalent Calculation: - Metal prices used in US$ – Au $1,204, Ag $14.20, Cu $2.80/lb, Pb $0.91/lb, Zn $1.09/lb
Formulas: 1st calculate a metal factor: for base metals (gold price/31.1 g/Troy oz)/ (base metal price*2.2kg/lb*10) = Base Metal Factor.
For Silver Metal Factor = gold price/silver price.
AuEq grade = Gold grade + (Ag grade/Ag Factor) + (Cu grade/Cu Factor) + (Pb grade/ Pb Factor) + (Zn grade/Zn factor)
Antonio Berlanga, CEO, States “These El Creston samples continue to demonstrate the quality of Tahuehueto mineralization and are, in the case of these El Creston samples verifying our reserve base established from previous drilling. In the case of the El Perdido underground development which has extended past the limits of previous drilling, channel sampling results, (as released February Feb 22, 2019) are verifying the continuity of mineralization along the El Perdido structure helping to verify managements assumption that the El Perdido Zone connects with the Santiago Zone on the same structure and if continuously mineralized will allow new exploration along approximately 800 meters of unexplored structure to hopefully add additional resources to the project. Meanwhile underground development and mill construction preparing the mine for our future on-site production continues as recent photos available on our web site demonstrate.”
All the above samples were submitted to SGS De Mexico. S.A. de C.V. independent laboratory located in Durango city Mexico. Assay methods utilized were GE_FAA313 and GE_ICP14B for gold and silver respectively with over-limits followed up with GO_FAG303, Multi-element GE_ICP14B for lead and zinc with over-limits assayed with GO_ICP90Q.

About Telson Mining Corporation
Telson Mining Corporation is a Canadian based mining company with two Mexican gold, silver and base metal mining projects. Effective May 15, 2018 Telson declared commercial production at its 100% owned Campo Morado Mine. Telson is currently producing zinc and lead concentrates with gold, silver and copper as by-products.
Telson's 100% owned Tahuehueto Project, located in north-western Durango State, Mexico is currently in construction development. Pre-production commenced at Tahuehueto in August 2017, currently mining at a rate averaging approximately 200 tonnes per day and shipping ore to a third-party toll mill for processing. Management has a targeted timeline at Tahuehueto to be producing with its own on-site mineral processing plant, with a designed capacity of at least 1,000 tonnes per day, Q3-Q4 2019.
Metal concentrate deliveries and sales are well underway from both projects.
