Darrell Rader: District Scale Silver in Mexico
Darrell discusses the silver market and Defiance Silver’s prospects in Mexico. When coming into a bull market silver will typically dramatically outperforms gold and the same is also the case with silver equities. In the last bull market Defiance had the first mover advantage and they were one of the top five performing silver equities. They have a good resource base with a team of proven mine finders plus a robust management team. They are a group of silver bugs with a lot of experience.
He discusses their San Acacio Project, which has a long history in Mexico. There are several large historic veins in the area and several other mining operations. Much of the area has not been drilled at depth, and this is one of Defiance’s objectives. Mexico is known for high-grade narrow veins with spectacular grades, but the system they are looking at is quite broad.
They are expanding their resource by drilling outside of the historic area. So far, they have drilled an additional 5000 meters and expanded their internal resource estimates.
They are excited to explore a below surface extension of 3.9km of the Historic Veta Grande Vein. They are looking to discover additional silver shoots along this vein which they know continues.
They have conducted an IP survey along the vein which showed some promising anomalies and followed up with a new technology called an Atomic Energy Resonance Imaging Survey. This survey can differentiate mineral types at depth and has shown silver anomalies and a larger copper target. They plan on drilling the copper target shortly.
