Taquetren Silver Project, Argentina
Vancouver, British Columbia February 24, 2022 – Norseman Silver Inc. (TSXV:NOC) (Q:NOCSF) (“Norseman” or the “Company”) is pleased to update on the ongoing exploration program at the Taquetren Silver-Gold Project in Southern Argentina. Exploration has successfully discovered a low sulphidation (LS) epithermal vein system within its 285 sq. km Taquetren project in Rio Negro, Argentina.
“Norseman is continuing to expand our efforts in Argentina, with a focus in Patagonia, Argentina, where recently significant gold and silver discoveries have been made. This region presents an excellent opportunity for the Company as one of the premier regions in the world for generating new discoveries.” stated Sean Hurd, President & CE0.
Ongoing mapping and sampling in the area of the recent discovery is underway and the exploration team has been expanded to facilitate an accelerated regional exploration program. No evidence of previous exploration on the ground has been identified. The Company staked an additional 300 sq. km of ground in Q4 2021 that is contiguous to the original Taquetren concession areas to expand the property boundaries. The exploration team has been expanded to facilitate an accelerated regional exploration program.
Field observations and the collected samples confirm the existence of a vein system is located on the edge of a circular structure and along the trace of the NW-SE-trending Gastre Fault System, as well as NE-SW-tending Nord-Patagonico Fault System. Regionally, the mineralized LS epithermal system is located on the edge of one of the previously identified circular structures, reinforcing the model of the mineralization linked to a mega caldera. Geochemical results from the Q4 exploration program will be released when available.
