BRIDGEWATER, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2016) - Silver Spruce Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SSE) ("Silver Spruce" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has continued to work closely with the owners of the Pino de Plata Project mining concessions to modify the terms of the new purchase contract which supersedes the original agreement and enables the Company to earn 100% interest in the concessions, subject to a 3% gross royalty, with a finder's fee payable in accordance with TSX guidelines. The Company will continue to seek additional project financing in tranches intended to conduct the first ever drill program at the project based on recommendations contained in the NI 43-101 report, which is available on our website at www.silverspruceresources.com and is filed on www.sedar.com.
The new revised financial terms are as follows:
"We are proud to have a close and positive working relationship with the concession vendors and are pleased to welcome them as shareholders of the Company," stated Stephan Jedynak, President and CEO."The modified purchase agreement terms will allow us to put the majority of the proceeds from our ongoing financing into the project and the planned 3,000 metre maiden drill program at Pino de Plata."
About Pino de Plata
The 397 hectare Pino de Plata Ag-Pb-Zn-Cu-Au project is located approximately fifteen kilometres from Coeur Mining Inc.'s Palmarejo open pit and underground operations. Although the Pino de Plata project has supported small scale historical production of high-grade mineralization from numerous areas, it had never been systematically explored and has had no drilling.
Ninety-two samples were taken during the NI 43-101 field examination and show the examined project area to host widespread intrusive epithermal mineralization at surface with silver values, on average, of greater than 50 grams per tonne (g/t), that is 1.6 ounces per tonne (opt), over an area of more than 1 square km (>100 Ha). Within the area examined, specific targets were sampled with silver (Ag) assays of up to 557 g/t or 17.9 opt in outcrop.
Three types of mineralization were identified in the maiden NI 43-101 report: disseminated epithermal mineralization in igneous (intrusive) rock, carbonate replacement mineralization in sedimentary limestone/marble and sandstone/hornfels and several areas of significant outcropping vein mineralization. Each of the host areas identified in the 43-101 technical report prepared by Leonard Kerr QP provide immediate drill targets with open pit potential.
The Company intends to initiate a 3,000 metre drill program to test these defined targets with high grades of mineralization at surface.
