This method of exploratory mining and underground drilling proved successful in locating the first commercial ore body which yielded more than 133,000 ounces of gold from a single ore shoot
measuring less than 10,000 cubic feet.
A decline will be driven from the end of the Laczay Tunnel below the downward projection of the New Departure ore shoot
which produced the bulk of the high grade silver production historically.

with a steeply dipping fault at 55,000 tonnes grading one ounce of gold or better to the tonne, Coutu said.
An additional ore shoot
of potentially similar dimensions containing high grade gold and silver has also been located 250 meters along strike from the primary workings" said Robert Brown, President and CEO of Calibre.

Only limited exploration was undertaken previously at the northern and north-western extensions of the Cameron Gold Deposit, as previous owners had focused on developing an underground mine to exploit the main high-grade plunging ore shoot
at the Cameron Gold Deposit.
This mineralization extends for a strike of approximately 200 metres, according to Tanzanian Royalty President, John Deane, who adds: "It has further been established that the main ore shoot
on the Main Zone is on the eastern limb.
The Divisadero property hosts the Carolina ore shoot
, where mining prior to 1920, and again for a limited time in the late 1970's, focused on a bonanza vein 100 meters long, averaging 8 meters wide, with reported grades of approximately 18 grams/ton gold and 1080 grams/ton silver.

First Majestic Resource Corp ("First Majestic" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of what is interpreted to be a third ore shoot
For example, Figure 8 shows a drift along the L Vein exposing an ore shoot
totaling 102 meters in length that grades 380 g/t Ag over an average width of 1.
