Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 16, 2021) – Starcore International Mines Ltd. (TSX: SAM) (“Starcore” or “the Company”) announces production results for the third fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2021, at its San Martin Mine (“San Martin”) in Queretaro, Mexico.
“More important than the improved results we show this quarter over the previous quarter, is the continuity of the operational excellence programs which were implemented over a year ago that have resulted in better control and optimization of costs in all areas of the operations, together with the reduction in management salaries” states Salvador Garcia, Chief Operating Officer of the Company. “It is very important to continue the exploration in the north west and eastern parts of the mine where we have found potential targets, identified after a detailed study of structural geology, in order to maintain our resources. A 6,000 meter drill program has been implemented and it is being matched with a development program of approximately 1,200 meters to cover both zones under exploration. To date, the first holes drilled in both zones have concluded with positive results, proving the continuity of the ore, leading us to begin preparations to exploit this ore quickly.” Mr. Garcia has expressed his optimism to grow the reserves in the short term based on the initial results of the exploration in these two zones of the mine.
