VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 1, 2014 / Agave Silver Corp. (TSX-V: AGV) ("Agave" or the "Company") announces the filing of "NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Kaslo Property, Slocan Mining Camp, British Columbia" ("Report") on the Company's 100% owned Kaslo Silver Property ("Kaslo") in southern British Columbia, Canada.
The Kaslo Property of Agave covers seven past producing mines in a horizon over 14 kilometres long, folded around the Keen Creek Syncline. Mining only reached a depth of 250 metres at the one deposit, the Cork-Province; in the other mines the depth of mining is less than 90 metres. None have been investigated or mined since Cork-Province closed in 1966. Exploration drilling in 1997 identified a new zone beyond the limits of historical mining. Exploration in 2013 confirmed the continuity of this mineralized horizon and shows it to be in a silver-lead-zinc sedimentary exhalative, "Sedex", setting similar to the Sullivan Mine.
The Report on Kaslo has been filed on SEDAR on April 30, 2014 in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
Dr. McBride, P.Eng, of Toronto, Ontario, is the Independent Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 responsible for authoring the report. The technical portions of this news release have been reviewed by Dr. McBride for accuracy to ensure that the disclosure is complete and not misleading.
