Vancouver-based explorer Soho Resources Corp (CVE:SOH) announced Wednesday initial surface and underground sampling results from the La Salvadora Zone on its Jocuixtita silver project in Sinaloa, Mexico, showing mineralization over significant widths.

Highlights of the results include 6.3 metres at 246.47 g/t silver, 0.63 g/t gold, 1.02% lead and 5.44% zinc; and 4.6 metres at 238.40 g/t silver, 0.64 g/t gold, 0.67% lead and 3.51% zinc.

Other notable results included 1.75 metres at 134 g/t silver, 1.22 g/t gold, 0.69% lead, and 5.05% zinc.

"I am excited to deliver these assay results to our shareholders as they confirm that the La Salvadora Zone is strongly mineralized with high grade silver and significant gold, lead and zinc, mineralization over good widths," said president and CEO Ralph Shearing.

"With the diamond drill now on site and commencing core drilling operations, we will soon understand the depth and strike extension of this strongly mineralized zone."

The company said the sampling results represented a series of either, channel samples cut with a diamond saw, or continuous hammer chip samples, collected across the Salvadora Zone. Individual samples were not more than 1.75 metres in width and where necessary, up to five individual samples were collected along a single sample line.

In all cases, sample lines did not represent the full width of the mineralization, as all individual samples at both ends ended in mineralization.

The 4,332 hectare Jocuixtita property hosts a number of northwest and northeast trending epithermal vein structures, mineralized with silver, gold, lead and zinc. The La Salvadora and El Carmen Zones are separated by approximately 700 m of strike length, and both zones contain historic underground workings. Soho plans on tracing the mineralization between these two zones, and thereafter, along strike.

Soho is focused on exploring for gold, silver and base metals in the prolific Sierra Madre Belt of Mexico.
