Best-ever lead-silver result
In October, Galena hit the best-ever high-grade lead-silver drill result at the Abra project in hole AB147 based on combined cumulative thickness and grade.
The holes returned 17.5 metres at 9.6% lead and 34 g/t silver from 266.2 metres, 20.9 metres at 7.3% lead and 20 g/t silver from 288.1 metres, 35.5 metres at 15.1% lead and 22 g/t silver from 321.8etres and 8.9 metres at 17.1% lead and 26 g/t silver from 366.2 metres.
This was considered an outstanding success given the hole was planned to target a potential ‘metal-rich’ zone for life of mine plan optimisation.
Notably, the company has identified a potentially mineable domain around 30 metres closer to the surface than the shallowest currently planned mining zone, subject to additional drilling in its vicinity.
