Northair Continues Exploration at La Cigarra Silver Project, Mexico
International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSXV: INM) (the "Company" or "Northair") is pleased to announce that a field program has commenced at the La Cigarra property, following the Mexican rainy season. The program is intended to complete geological mapping and reconnaissance sampling over the entire property position, and complete a detailed evaluation of any newly defined areas of mineralization. A soil sampling program will also be conducted over a roughly 3,300 metre long by 300 metre wide area along the prospective trend of mineralization. Three presently known zones (La Boracha, San Gregorio and Las Carolinas) have been defined within this trend (click here to view map). The field work will lead to a mechanical trenching program in preparation for an anticipated drill program.
The La Cigarra silver project consists of six concessions and is located in State of Chihuahua along the eastern fringes of the Sierra Madre Occidental in north central Mexico. The project has good access, topography and infrastructure. Grupo Northair de Mexico, S.A. de C.A., a subsidiary of Northair, can acquire a 100% ownership of the concessions by making payments over a 5 year period totaling US$445,000 with no royalties. The acquisition is subject to registration with the appropriate Mexican government authorities, which is expected shortly.
La India Project
Fresnillo PLC has officially notified Northair that it is returning the La India property to the Company. Fresnillo completed a program of surface mapping and sampling and completed 8 diamond drill holes totaling 867 metres in June 2009. The Fresnillo drill program tested two mineralized zones, the South Breccia previously outlined on surface by Northair and the North Breccia discovered by Fresnillo and located approximately 500 metres north of the South Breccia. Fresnillo's drilling encountered anomalous intervals of gold mineralization in all eight holes; however no mineralized intervals of potentially economic grades were reported. Northair is presently reviewing the Fresnillo data and considering other joint venture partners.
