HILTON HEAD, S.C., Dec. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Silver Scott Mines, Inc. (OTC: SILS) is pleased to announce the initiation of a 6000 meter RC drill program at the Quitovac gold mine project. The drilling began after the signing of a long term surface land agreement with the local controlling Quitovac community.
Completion of six RC drill holes totaling 917.5 meters was done in less than a week of work with one day delay for local torrential rains after beginning the drill program. The remaining 5080 meters will be completed in January of 2012. Assay standards, blanks and field duplicates have been inserted at regular intervals in the sample train collected at 5 foot intervals to maintain a quality control program. All drill holes are angled southwest at 225 azimuth and most have an angle of inclination of 45 degrees except QP-3 at 60 degrees inclination. Samples have been delivered to the laboratory for analysis by standard fire assay and coarse screen fire assay under the direction of QP Metallurgical Engineer Jim Bradbury.
Mel Herdrick, QP and Registered Geologist, Chief Geologist for the company commented, "We expect this drilling to begin to define the gold mineralized zone at Quitovac Mine area. We can follow by drilling and mapping the various mineralized contacts and shear zones. Our goal, in line with our overall corporate strategy, is to explore, define, and initiate production of gold and silver by heap leach mine processing and expansion with operation and exploration."
