VANCOUVER, Canada –- Viscount Mining Corp. (TSX-V: VML) (“Viscount” or “the Company”), a mineral resource exploration company with a portfolio of past producing gold and silver mines and exploration properties in the Western United States, is pleased to announce the 2015 exploration campaign is poised to commence on the Silver Cliff Project in Custer County Colorado.
The Silver Cliff Property (the “Property”) lies within the historic Hardscabble Silver District, where high grade silver, gold and base metal production came from numerous mines during the period 1878 to 1894. The property underwent substantial exploration between 1967 and 1984. Companies who became involved with Silver Cliff since 1976 included, but was not limited to; Freeport, Homestake, Moly Corp, FMC, CoCo Mines, Hecla and Tenneco. Work completed at Silver Cliff has included drilling of approximately 350 holes.
The Company is now planning to initiate an exploration campaign, scheduled to begin early in May 2015 as there are no current mineral resources or mineral reserves identified on the property. None of the previous reports are currently NI 43 101 compliant and verifiable by a qualified person.
The program will include:
- Surface sampling of potential high-grade shows
- Check sampling of previously reported mineralized areas
- Survey of historically reported drill sites to aid in targeting for future drilling campaigns
- Evaluation of current claim coverage for potential upgrades and additional staking
- Securing easement agreements from local land owners
- Initiating permitting necessary for planned development work
- Collection of representative material from previously reported mineral inventories
- Test work for proprietary mineral concentration methodologies on mineralized material
