THOMPSON FALLS, Mont.--()--United States Antimony Corporation (“USAC”, NYSE MKT “UAMY”) announced initial mill feed assays from its Los Juarez silver-antimony-gold property. The assays were 0.728% antimony, 6.22 ounces of silver (193 grams) per metric ton, and 0.023 ounces of gold (0.7 grams) per metric ton and represent 1,415 tons of dump rock mixed with soil from the Minas Grande open pit that was 30 meters deep. There is no assurance that these values will continue in other areas of the property
The disseminated Los Juarez mineralization is in vertical jasperoid zones mapped for 2.18 miles (3.5 kilometers) along strike and over a width of 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers). The deposit is open in all directions.
USAC’s Chief Executive Officer, John Lawrence, commented that these values are exceptional for an open-pit, bulk-mineable deposit where mining costs are less than $10.00 per metric ton.
USAC is a diversified producer of antimony, precious metals, and zeolite with operations in the Unites States and Mexico.
