Silver Company Finds Visible Gold
Source: Streetwise Reports
April 14, 2023 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Arizona Silver Exploration Inc. has samples that reveal visible gold. Read here to see how the company is preparing to develop its flagship property.
Earlier this month, Arizona Silver Exploration Inc. (AZS:TSX; AZASF:OTC) released news regarding the drilling of the Perry Zone and the Rising Fawn Zone on its Philadelphia project. While the company is still waiting on assay results, drilling has revealed visible gold on some drill holes.
Arizona Silver stated regarding the news, "We are in the process of drilling out one of the most exciting new gold discoveries in Arizona and anticipate having a large gold-silver resource defined in 2023-2024."
The company is a junior mining exploration company. Arizona Silver has four properties: Silverton, Ramsey, Sycamore Canyon, and Philadelphia, its flagship property. Mike Stark is the President, CEO, and Director, while Greg Hahn is the Vice President of Exploration and Director, as well as a certified professional geologist and geological engineer.
Visible Gold Found During Drilling
Arizona Silver released the geological sections from the drilling program at the Philadelphia gold-silver project in March 2023. The company is still awaiting assay results, but the program covered 1256m and included 12 drill holes in six sections. Half of these sections are located in the Perry Zone and the other half in the Rising Fawn Zone.
The company defined visibly mineralized intervals by the presence of stockwork quartz or without a hanging wall vein. Some of these visible mineralized intervals may contain visible gold, or gold may be adjacent to visibly mineralized intervals.
According to Greg Hahn, the Vice President of Exploration, "These geologic sections demonstrate excellent continuity of the host geology and stockwork mineralization from two areas separated by +300m of strike. They form part of a continuously mineralized system with a total strike length drilled over at least 1.7 kilometers. The continuity of mineralization down dip is impressive to date, with a dip length of at least 200m demonstrated. Mineralization continues to remain open down-dip and along strike."
Gold Reaching New Heights
After much anticipation, gold finally broke the US$2,000/oz. According to Stockhead, gold has only ever traded at this price for two days in history.
OANDA analyst Edward Moya said, "a weakening economy continues to drive safe-haven flows towards gold. Gold investors now need to see further evidence that the service sector part of the economy is slowing, and that could help the big rally continue." Moya predicts that if current economic instability continues, gold could reach US$2,100.
While values in the tech industry have plummeted, gold seems to be on the rise, reports Nadine McGrath. Gold stocks have been driven up by preparations for drilling and sampling as well as the uncertain market.
According to Anna Golubova of Kitco News, some of the increase in gold value was driven by central banks' buying habits. At the beginning of the year, these institutions purchased 74 tons, and to date have purchased 125 tons of gold. The leading buyers seem to be China, Russia, and Turkey.
Arizona Silver reports that it has a tight share structure, with large stakes owned by management. It has a low burn rate and spends the majority of its money on developing drill sites, particularly in Philadelphia.
According to Greg Hahn, VP of Exploration, "The Philadelphia property is one of the few gold systems remaining in the Western U.S.A. that has never been evaluated using modern exploration concepts ... All this project needs is drilling to demonstrate its real potential."
The company is expecting to release drill results any day now. It reports that it has had 100% drill hole hits on all patented ground drilling since 2021. [OWNERSHIP_CHART-10692]
On March 23, 2023, technical analyst Clive Maund said regarding Arizona Silver, "We are still at a very good entry point for the stock, which has big upside from here."
In the same month, Chris Temple of The National Investor shared his excitement with Arizona Silver's march drill results, saying, "Ahead of this news, AZS shares had already been better-than-average performers among the universe of exploration juniors . . . I think, in this case, it owes to AZS shares being in some stronger-than-average hands: people who see progress being made toward a possibly BIG breakout story and don't want to leave."
Ownership and Share Structure
Management and advisors hold more than 28% of the company, while institutions hold 9.9%. Arizona Silver reports having a large following of family and friends who own 42% of the company.
