BRITISH COLUMBIA – Bayhorse Silver of Vancouver has sent a team of geologists to examine its Brandywine precious metals-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide property 14 km south of Whistler. Of particular interest is the partially mined Tedi zone. The zone is exposed in a 30-metre width along a strike of 120 metres.

The Bayhorse team has located the historic drill core and hole locations. The team has also located the historic Quartz and Silver tunnels. The Quartz tunnel runs from an adit at 607 metres elevation through the Dave’s Pond mineralized zone and up to the Tedi pit at 943 metres, hinting at a minimum vertical extent of 330 metres. The known strike length is 1.8 km between the Quartz tunnel and the Tedi pit.

The Tedi pit was previously mined by Van Silver Mines. Reported production was 25,054 oz. of silver, 352,424 lb. of zinc, 363,396 lb. of lead, 26,534 lb. of copper, and 11,045 oz. of gold. Bayhorse says a later 4.5-metre samples from the North pit at Tedi graded 150 g/t silver, 14.08% zinc, 10.95% lead, 1.71% copper, and 1.6 g/t gold.

Bayhorse is funding its current geological program with the proceeds of a recent $300,000 flow-through share offering. Read more at www.BayhorseSilver.com.
