U.S. Precious Metals drills 183.7m to 194.6m (10.9 meters) of 2.9 ppm Au and 11.2 ppm Ag
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 14, 2015 / U.S. Precious Metals, Inc. (USPR.OTCQB) announces its final drilling results from the 2015 drill program on its Solidaridad property, Michoacán, Mexico. The 2015 program consisted of 4,303 meters of diamond drilling resulting in 27 holes. The drill program provided infill drilling on the "Main Zone," confirmation drilling of older RC drill results and some exploratory drilling in the "North," "South," "East" and "West Zones" which surround the "Main Zone." The "Main Zone" drilling continued to return excellent Cu-Ag-Au results while exploratory drilling on the "North Zone" targets returned high grade intervals.
Highlights are indicated below followed by a table of significant intercepts (41 separate intervals) from the program. Drill hole LS 15-023 was the deepest mineralized intercept from 183.7m to 194.6m (10.9 meters) of 2.9 ppm Au and 11.2 ppm Ag. Drill hole LS 15-024 is a 100 meter step-out to the south from drill hole LS 15-023 and the rest of the Main Zone drilling. The intercept in drill hole 24 from 182.2m to 187.8m (5.6 meters) of 6.5 ppm Au and 17.0 ppm Ag importantly establishes a 100 meter horizontal continuity between holes 23 and 24 at depth.

A map of all 2015 drill collars and sections across the mineralized zones is available on USPR's website at http://www.usprgold.com/exploration/cross-sections.
A table of all key drill results is included below and is also available at http://www.usprgold.com/exploration/assays-2015-drill-campaign-results.
The 2015 drill program followed up on results from earlier drill programs including drilling in 2008 and 2010 and the weighted averages from these drill programs which have not been previously released are now available on the USPR's website at http://www.usprgold.com/exploration/drill-campaign-highlights.
Dave Burney, the Company's Chief Geologist stated, "The 2015 drilling results, combined with the results of the 2008 and 2010 drilling campaigns provides us with a comprehensive understanding of the Main Zone and mineralized areas surrounding the Main Zone. All assay results from the 2015 drilling campaign, maps and cross-sections generated by the independent contractors have been provided to a team of professionals that includes 'Qualified Person' (QP) geologists who are evaluating all data and are in the process of completing a 'Technical Report.' The second phase of drilling is now in the planning stage. We are currently evaluating drill targets for further definition and exploratory drilling on the 2200 meter long mineralized trend that extends from the 'North Zone' to Cuendeo. Additionally, we are evaluating a soil and stream sediment survey campaign to begin exploring other areas where surface samples have returned favorable assay results for all three metals."
