Canadian Silver Hunter Inc. is an exploration company focused on the advancement of its South Lorrain Project (SLP) toward feasibility. CSH is the 100% owner of the SLP silver-cobalt property.
The SLP, including other lands in the Silver Centre Camp is approximately 2200 hectares in size and is located 500 kms north or Toronto, Ontario.
The high-grade silver mineralization occurs as steeply dipping veins within either of the two main rock types; Archaean volcanics and Nipissing Diabase . The SLP includes the patented claims of two past producing silver/cobalt mines, The Keeley Mine & The Frontier Mine.
- The Keely-Frontier mine combined produced over 19 million ounces of silver, and 3.3 million pounds of Cobalt.
- Average grade of 58.0 ounces per tonne of silver and 0.5% cobalt, from 332,000 tonnes of ore representing over 80% of the silver produced from the Silver Centre camp.
Highlights from 2012 Phase 1 drilling (2058m)
Diamond drill hole CSH12-03 returned significant silver values in a new structure between 111.0 and 122.3 metres downhole, including the following screen metallic assays:
- 168.22 grams Ag /tonne over 4.2 metres, including 1517.0 grams Ag/tonne over 0.3 metres, and 479 grams Ag /tonne over 0.4 metres.
Drill holes CSH12-04, 05, and 06 all intersected a known silver-bearing structure that is at the western limit of the mined area, but has significant exploration potential remaining. The best intersection was a composite silver value of 398.42 g/tonne over 1.9 metres.
In 2013 CSH completed powerstripping on a potentially new structure at Gibson Lake, discovered by examining old records and prospecting.
- Channel sampling at Gibson Lake returned silver values ranging from 0.4g/t to190g/t with only seven samples assaying below 1.0g/t (The average length weighted composite for all 77 channel samples taken is 11.33 g/t Ag, also 0.12% Pb, 0.14% Zn and 0.12% Cu.).
Sampling of the tailings returned silver values between 74.8 g/tonne (2.4 ounces per ton) and 404 g/tonne (13 ounces per ton).
CSH also owns the Veinlode Silver Mines patented leases, purchased from Teck in 2014/15.
