Alianza Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: ANZ, OTC: TARSF) (“Alianza” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that a subsidiary of Coeur Mining, Inc. (“Coeur”) has commenced an initial exploration program at the Tim Silver Project in southern Yukon, 19 kilometres northeast of Coeur’s Silvertip mine. The current program consists of a SkyTEM airborne geophysical survey and will be followed up by groundwork later this field season. In accordance with the 2020 option agreement between Coeur and Alianza, Coeur is operating the Tim Silver Project exploration program.
The SkyTEM airborne geophysical survey is expected to collect magnetic and resistivity data over the concessions to help identify and delineate structural features on the property. It is also expected that this data will be valuable in mapping geology in areas of sparse outcrop. This data will be used to plan subsequent work including mapping, soil geochemical sampling and trenching later this summer.
The 2021 exploration program at Tim is targeting high-grade silver-lead-zinc Carbonate Replacement Mineralization (“CRM”), similar to that found at Coeur’s Silvertip operation. Coeur can earn an 80% interest in the Property by (i) funding $3.55 million in exploration over five years and (ii) making scheduled cash payments totalling $575,000 over eight years. Coeur must also fund a feasibility study and notify Alianza of its intention to develop a commercial mine on the property on or before the 8th anniversary from the date of notification of the class 1 exploration permit.
