July 27, 2021, Vancouver, British Columbia - New Tech Minerals Corp. NTM-CSE (“New Tech” or the “ Company”) is pleased to announce that through its wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, NTM Minerales SA de CV, it has acquired, by staking, an additional mineral concession surrounding its La Escondida Silver-Gold project in Sonora, Mexico.
The new concession, La Tortuga 2, is comprised of 4,000 hectares and provides coverage of potential extensions to the three principal structures that are exposed at surface on the La Escondida concession, which returned significant silver values,( up to 1,150 g/t Ag), from New Tech’s sampling program conducted earlier this year.
As recently announced, all permits for further exploration have been approved, providing for drilling 41 holes, and excavation of 50 trenches. A maiden drill program is being planned and will target those areas where the most promising silver and gold grades were encountered with surface sampling.
About La Escondida Silver-Gold Project
The La Escondida Project is comprised of two contiguous concessions (total 178 hectares) located approximately 140 kilometers northeast of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Historical and recent descriptions of the veins, which are exposed intermittently for as much as 800 metres along strike, are consistent with a silver-rich epithermal origin, but the project is located within the region of orogenic gold deposits that includes La Herradura, Noche Buena, El Chanate and San Francisco.
Several small artisanal workings are present along the east-west trend for 600 metres. Historical rock-chip sampling along the veins and structures returned values of up to 1,893 g/t Ag and up to 5.4 g/t Au.
