“Greg Johnson, Metallic Minerals’ Chairman & CEO stated, “We are excited about the potential that is being highlighted by our ongoing exploration on the Keno Silver Project, where we have been able to move quickly from land acquisitions and target identification to delivering confirmatory drill results from these under-explored areas of the prolific Keno Hill Silver District. Results to date have confirmed the existence of high-grade silver in Keno-type structures beginning at surface and that those systems are open at depth and along strike, in stratigraphic settings that are comparable with some of the largest deposits in the district. Our plans for 2018 are to undertake a robust drill-focused program, following and expanding upon the same systematic exploration methodology as 2017.”
