VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alianza Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: ANZ) (OTC: TARSF) (“Alianza” or the “Company”) reports that the 2019 Phase II exploration program at the Haldane Property, YT has been completed. Haldane is a high-grade silver target in the historic Keno Hill Mining District of Yukon Territory. The 8,579 hectare property is located 25 km west of Keno City, YT in the western portion of the Keno Hill Silver District.
“We are pleased to have completed our first drill test of the Haldane Property, including the first-ever tests of the Ross and Bighorn anomalies,” stated Jason Weber, P.Geo, President and CEO of Alianza. “It is evident that, with in excess of five kilometres of vein-structure strike potential, we have only begun to scratch the surface when it comes to testing the potential for high grade silver mineralization similar to that seen elsewhere in the Keno Hill District.”
The 2019 Phase I program targeted three main areas: the newly identified Bighorn and Ross anomalies and the Mt. Haldane Vein System (MHVS). One hole was completed at each of the Ross and Bighorn anomalies, with two holes targeting the A and B veins of the Middlecoff Zone in the Mt. Haldane Vein System target area. A total of 963 metres were cored in four holes. Management expects to start receiving laboratory results in early October.
