VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 8, 2021 / Masivo Silver Corp. (TSXV:MASS)(OTC PINK:GNYPF) ("Masivo" or the "Company") announced today that it has received environmental permits for both its public and private land mineral claims, part of the Boston and Montgomery Mine projects (the " Project") in the State of Nevada.
These claims part of the highly prospective silver-gold-copper Project are located in Elko County, Nevada, the leading gold producer in the United States. The claim group comprises approximately 543 hectares (1,342 acres) consisting of 65 unpatented claims including the historic Boston Mine.
"We are very pleased to have received these environmental permits for the Project's mineral claims," stated David Coburn, Masivo Silver Corp. CEO. "We are now a step closer to executing our exploration plan which includes drill ready targets at the Project's historically prolific Boston mine property."
Boston and Montgomery Mine History
Located in the eastern portion of the claim group, was developed in 1910 with a 190-foot shaft and levels at 90 and 190 feet, with 360 feet of drifting on both levels. The mine reported shipments of high-grade silver, gold and copper from a zone that varied in width from six to 40 feet with grades up to 226 grams per tonne ("g/t") silver, 9 g/t gold and 6.8 per cent copper, with localized zones of up to 2,880 g/t silver, 25.7 g/t gold and 32 per cent copper. Since the mine's closure at the onset of the Second World War, the mine was held in private hands, with activity limited to, sporadic surface exploration, sampling on the 90-foot level, and limited surface drilling.
The Projects covers about nine kilometers of prospective metamorphosed limestones containing silver, gold and copper stratabound skarn mineralization marginal to the contact of a Jurassic aged granodiorite intrusion. Mineralization consists of bornite, chalcopyrite and digenite with silver and gold in calc-silicate hornfels adjacent to faults and altered porphyry dikes, as well as replacement of favourable horizons adjacent to the granodiorite contact.
