El Tigre Silver Corp. (ELS - TSX.V, EGRTF - OTCQX, 5RT-Frankfurt) is a publicly-traded company committed to becoming a leader in mineral exploration and development while optimizing shareholder value. The company has its head office in Vancouver, BC and a subsidiary office in Hermosillo, Mexico.
The company currently owns 100% of 9 mining concessions, 8 comprising 43,098 (431 square kilometres) located in the Sierra El Tigre, northeastern Sonora State in Mexico (The El Tigre Property).
El Tigre’s business plan has two key components. The first is building a processing facility to recover silver and gold from a large tailings pile and the second is to explore and develop a large disseminated gold and silver zone associated with the El Tigre vein system.
The tailings are a result of 35 years of production at the original El Tigre mine. The company’s objective from this project is to provide revenue for future drilling programs, develop infrastructure for future mining and develop in-house production experience.
The Company has been conducting aggressive mapping, rock chip sampling, and drilling since 2010 to advance the discovery of a mineable deposit. Based on surface sampling and the 2011 and 2012 drilling programs, El Tigre continues to be encouraged with the results coming from the gold target on Gold Hill. This target is potentially open-pittable and approximately 1.2 kilometres long and 50 to 125 metres wide.
For 2013 the Company is planning to drill 5000 metres in a 30 to 40 hole program. The same drill holes are also testing the presence of high grade silver in the El Tigre vein. Exploration work will continue at other known silver and gold targets on the property.
