CEO Peter Dembicki and Exploration SVP Christian Rios gave us a sponsor update on Tier One Silver (OTCQB: TSLVF – TSX-V: TSLV). The latest channel sampling results from the Magdalena Target at Hurricane were reviewed. While the ultimate proof is delivered by the drill bit, these results show that Tier One is likely on to something big. They found 1 meter of 852.5 g/t silver, 1.54% copper, 0.34% lead and 0.23% zinc: 1 m of 522.5 g/t Ag, 1.15% Cu, 0.18% Pb and 0.18% Zn and 2 m of 232.5 g/t Ag, 0.37% Cu, 1.06% Pb and 1.78% Zn. Mineralization at Magdalena has been extended by 500 meters. So far 4 kilometers of vein corridors have been identified.
SVP Rios related, “It’s exciting to see the Magdalena target significantly expand after just 15 days of field work. Mineralization is present across horizontal and vertical extents with more than 150 m in vertical exposure and two levels of historical underground workings. Additionally, we are seeing anomalies that are consistent with an intrusive related system and the mineralization remains open in all directions, making this area a strong exploration priority of the 13 targets in the Hurricane district.”
Previously, SVP Rios’s efforts helped to reach a social agreement, which was rapidly approved by the communities adjoining Hurricane. Tier One took advantage and quickly started work, thus further dispelling many of the myths of dealing in Peru.
CEO Dembicki relates that there could be a copper-nickel deposit present that may rival some of these huge deposits found in Russia and Brazil. Upon confirmation of the sampling, Tier One’s optionality will increase greatly.
Peter gave us his take on the junior miner sector’s current state. He noted that silver has recently bounced back to nearly $22 and appears to be going higher. He further observed the paradox of increasing institutional investor interest, while the retail interest in the sector has been lackluster. Looking ahead to 2023, he thinks that investors will again start focusing on drill results, ore grades and other important data as they pour into miners again.
Prospective drill programs are now being refined and in early 2023 they will re-commence. It’s an exciting time for Tier One and for us as shareholders.
