CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CMX Gold & Silver Corp. (CSE:CXC) (OTC:CXXMF) (“CMX” or the “Company”) has entered into a $34,650 non-brokered private placement for 346,500 units and a debt settlement agreement for $2,900 for 29,000 units. Each unit is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant exercisable for two years at $0.20 per share. Also, the Company has entered into a separate debt settlement agreement for U.S. $35,834 for 480,000 common shares of CMX. After the private placement and debt settlements, the Company has 34,215,724 common shares issued and outstanding.
The Company’s plans for a work program on its 100%-owned Clayton silver-lead-zinc property in Custer County, Idaho late last year were deferred to 2017. Jan Alston, President and CEO of CMX stated, “With 2017 continuing to see strengthening of silver, lead and zinc prices, the timing is excellent for building on the potential of the Clayton property. This year we expect to raise capital to materially advance the project.”
The 2017 program will include comprehensive sampling of mine dump material situated adjacent to the old mill to assess economic potential. Based on preliminary estimates, the Company believes the dump contains at least 500,000 tonnes and, potentially, up to 1,000,000 tonnes of material.
The 2017 program will also include geophysics to assist identifying optimal diamond drilling locations. A drilling program planned for the second half of 2017 will target both remaining mineralization in the underground workings and potential for new mineralized bodies adjacent to the mine workings. The drilling program will include one (or more) holes required to confirm the presence of mineralization extending beyond the existing underground workings.
Historical internal mine records indicate that not all previously identified ore in the “North Ore Body” was mined out before operations ceased in 1986. The mine shut down due to low metal prices, but with active mine operations still in mineralization. Additional tonnage identified down to the 1530-foot level was not mined and, therefore, is interpreted to remain available. Significant potential is demonstrated in hole 1501-A, drilled in the mid-1960’s, which penetrated the mineralized zone at the 1425 level. At that depth, the hole intersected 22 feet (6.70 m) of 4.07 oz Ag/t, 5.75% lead and 5.37% zinc (true width unknown).
Review of the available historical information for the Clayton Silver Mine has been interpreted by CMX to suggest potential for identification of additional mineralized bodies a) east and west of the existing underground workings representing lateral offsets of mineralization; b) to greater depth below both the “South Ore Body” (speculative) and “North Ore Body” (documented); and c) both north and south along strike of the host fault(s). Jan Alston commented, “Because the last mining operations on the property occurred over 30 years ago, advances in technology in all facets of mining activities present an opportunity to add significant value to the Clayton property. These advances positively impact exploration techniques (including geophysics), diamond drilling efficiencies, mine development and operations, milling and metallurgical processes.”
