NSX Silver commences Phase 2 drilling program at Dios Padre Silver Project

Thursday, Jan 10, 2013

BEDFORD, NS, Jan. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - NSX Silver Inc. (TSXV: NSY ) is pleased to announce it has commenced a Phase 2 drilling program on the Dios Padre Silver Project in Mexico.  The Dios Padre Project is located in the Eastern Sierra Madre Mountain range about midway between the cities of Hermosillo and Chihuahua, in east central Sonora.  The Project is comprised of three contiguous exploitation concessions covering an area of 285 hectares which NSX Silver holds under option.

Dios Padre Phase 2 Drilling Program

The Phase 2 drilling program will consist of 2,500 to 3,000 meters of core
drilling and has been designed taking into account the results of the 2012 drilling completed by NSX Silver (16 holes) as well as the 2006 drilling completed by First Majestic Resource Corp. (17 holes) and the 1996 drilling completed by Silver Standard Resources (10 holes).

The objectives of the Phase 2 program are; (1) to expand the mineralized zone at depth following the plunge of the mineralized breccia intrusive body and (2) to support a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimation for Dios Padre.

Heurigo Silver Anomaly

NSX Silver also plans to conduct a trenching program at the Heurigo Silver anomaly located 5 kilometers from the Dios Padre Silver Project.

This program will entail the construction of roads exposing new bedrock occurrences and excavating deeper trenches using backhoes to expose rock at depths as much as 4 meters. The recently completed Phase 2 geochemical program successfully delineated the Huerigo Zone in detail and confirmed the internal consistency and intensity of the silver anomaly (see NSX Silver press release dated December 18, 2012).
