Sable Intersects 79.8g/t AgEq (71g/t Ag, 0.13% Zn) over 30.8m including 186.0g/t AgEq (174g/t Ag, 0.16% Zn) over 3.7m

TORONTOMarch 14, 2019 /CNW/ – Sable Resources (TSX.V:SAE) (the “Company” or “Sable”) is pleased to announce the drill results from drillholes M-DDH-19-18 and M-DDH-19-19 from the company’s active Stage II 19-hole drill program targeting the Margarita Vein and including the first exploration drillholes in four other veins identified at the Margarita Project, Chihuahua State, Mexico.

Drillholes M-DDH-19-18 and M-DDH-19-19 were designed to explore the 500 m drill gap located between the section line containing previously released holes M-DDH-18-11 and M-DDH-18-12 and the section line containing M-DDH-18-03. Hole M-DDH-19-19 was a 150m step out to the North West from Holes 11 and 12, where as M-DDH-19-18 was 200m North West of M-DDH-19-19, 150m South East of existing hole 3.


79.78 g/t AgEq (71g/t Ag, 0.13% Zn) over 30.8m from 31.20m to 62.0m 

186.0 g/t AgEq (174g/t Ag, 0.15% Zn) over 3.7m from 41.15m to 44.85m 

199.0 g/t AgEq (171g/t Ag, 0.4% Zn, 0.12% Pb) over 1.55m from 59.45m to 61.0m

34.77 g/t AgEq (32.69 /t Ag, 0.03% Zn) over 7.2m from 26.35m to 33.55m 

44.48 g/t AgEq (24.05g/t Ag, 0.3% Zn, 0.08% Pb) over 54.9m from 45.75m to 100.65m 

237.98 g/t AgEq (93.76 g/t Ag, 2.43% Zn, 0.29% Pb) over 2.05m from 91.75m to 93.80m

“The results from these two additional drill holes assist greatly in the understanding of extent, geometry and styles of mineralization at Margarita.” commented Ruben Padilla, Vice President of Exploration for Sable. “The mineralized Margarita structure can now be traced continuously with drill holes for 1400m along strike including a central core of high-grade veins and silicified fault zones surrounded by a wide, close to surface, low-grade Silver halo, hosted by silicified and fractured volcanic rocks.”

True widths are estimated to be 90% of the intercept based on vein to core angle. Detailed drill results, location plan and sections are available from the Sable website ( Silver equivalent is calculated based on USD15.50 per ounce for Silver, USD 0.95 per pound for Lead and USD1.20 per pound for Zinc and USD1200 for gold with 100% recovery.

Acquired as part of Sable Resources Upper Level Epithermal Strategy, the Margarita Project is located in the Satevó Municipality in Chihuahua state, approximately 120km SW of the state capital of Chihuahua City, and 110km NNW of the historic Parral mining district. The Project lies on strike with Sunshine Silver Corp.’s Los Gatos Project. Hosted in Eocene-Oligocene Volcanics, Margarita is defined by 4 veins; Margarita, El Caido, Juliana and Maria on 2 claims totally encompassed by Sunshine Silver.

Sable is a well-funded junior grassroots explorer focused on the discovery of new precious metal projects through systematic exploration in endowed terranes located in favorable, established mining jurisdictions. Sables’ main focus is developing their large portfolio of new greenfields projects to resource stage utilizing their Upper Level Epithermal Strategy. Sable is actively exploring the San Juan Regional Program (48,000ha) incorporating the Don Julio Project in San Juan Province, Argentina, the Mexico Regional Program (1.5Mha), incorporating the Margarita, Vinata and El Escarpe drill ready projects and the BC Intrusion Related Program, Canada (13,600ha) incorporating the drill ready Tulox Project.

Sample Preparation and QAQC 
Sample preparation was carried out by ALS Chemex de Mexico S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of ALS Minerals, at their laboratory at Chihuahua, State of Chihuahua, Mexico. Analyses were carried out at their laboratory in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Sample preparation was by drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (code PREP-31).

Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30 g sample split with detection by atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS) (code Au-AA23). Multi-elements were analyzed by a four acid, near total digestion of a 1 gram sub-sample with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES) for 33 elements (Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ga, K, La, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, S, Sb, Sc, Sr, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Zn) (code MEICP61).

This digestion method dissolves most minerals but not all elements are quantitatively extracted in some sample matrices. Mercury was analyzed by aqua regia digestion, cold vapor extraction, and AAS detection with a lower limit of detection of 0.01 ppm (code Hg-CV41), or by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) with a lower limit of detection of 0.005 ppm (code Hg-MS42).
