Argentum Silver Corp. (TSXV:ASL) received assay results from a trenching program on its Mexico-based Coyote property, noting that the program successfully exposed and extended all of the principal silver zones.

As quoted in the press release:

Surface trenching has extended the main El Tajo vein for an additional 375 meters to the south along strike. Mineralization at the El Tajo vein remains open at depth and along strike to the south. The trenching also exposed 2 new zones on the La Valenciana vein, one over 350 metres in strikelength and a second over 600 metres in strikelength.

Highlights of the trenching program include:

Warren McIntyre, president of Argentum, commented:

The trenching results from the El Tajo vein added an additional 375 metres of strikelength to the 600 metres initially drill tested. Other veins on the balance of the property returned significant high grade silver values, which have yet to be drill tested.
