After a long wait on Tuesday (stock was halted before the open), Vizsla Resources (TSX-V:VZLA), delivered the goods early this morning. The company has completed five holes to date and results have been received for holes NP-20-02 and NP-20-03, both of which returned high-grade intercepts in a new vein discovery at Panuco. Before I delve into what I think this means, let's take a look at the results.
Hole NP-20-02 delivered 1,544 g/t silver equivalent (738.9 grams per tonne silver and 11.06 grams per tonne gold) over 8.2 meters from 108.6 meters downhole including 3,348 g/t silver equivalent (1,527.5 g/t silver and 24.9 g/t gold) over 2.0 meters from 108.6 meters downhole.
Hole NP-20-03 was also impressive, delivering 1,133 g/t silver equivalent (453.8 g/t silver and 9.20 g/t gold) over 2.5 meters from 76.0 meters downhole. And deeper down in this hole, Vizsla intersected 905 g/t silver equivalent (309.3 g/t silver and 8.00 g/t gold), 2.22% lead and 4.75% zinc over 5.1 meters beginning from 102.4 meters downhole including 1,375 g/t silver equivalent (186.3 g/t silver and 15.63 g/t gold), 1.12% lead and 7.73% zinc over 1.8m from 103.5 meters downhole.
VP of exploration Charles Funk commented:
"These results are a very exciting discovery for Vizsla with multiple veins intersected in drilling containing very high-grade silver, gold and base metals. These holes are the first ever drilled on the Napoleon vein which extends over more than 2 km of strike and hosts multiple small-scale mines and mineralized outcrops. Drilling is ongoing with two deeper holes and a hole in progress 60m to the north of NP-20-03, all which have each intersected veins. Vizsla is continuing to step out to expand and define the footprint of mineralization at Napoleon".
Let's boil this news down. Vizsla has made a new high-grade gold/silver/base metals discovery called the Napoleon Vein which is open for more than 2 kilometers along strike. Vizsla is continuing to step-out to expand and define the mineralization footprint at Napoleon.
In addition, the company has more than C$6 million in the treasury with two drill rigs turning at Panuco. Assays from holes 4 and 5 are in the lab pending assays and Vizsla gave us a nice teaser on hole 6 by adding:
"The drill rig has been moved north and is drilling beneath the old Napoleon mine in hole NP-20-06. The hole is currently in progress and has intersected veins 60m to the north of hole NP-20-03."
It's all systems go for Vizsla at Panuco and the fact that the company renegotiated its option agreements on the project (saving US$4.1 million in payments) is the icing on the cake. This company has never been in a better position than it is today and I would be shocked if VZLA shares didn't reach at least C$.60 today, and there is potential for VZLA shares to make all-time highs over the coming weeks as drilling continues and the silver bull market tailwinds take hold.
