Variscan Mines reported strong assay results from its ongoing underground drilling campaign at the San Jose mine in Cantabria, Spain.

The campaign, which focuses on extending the mineral resource estimate, revealed zinc mineralisation outside the current model.

Drill results include 14.10m at 5.31% Zn and 0.44% Pb from drill hole NDDT033, 11m at 6.66% Zn and 0.72% Pb from NDDT032, and 4.65m at 5.49% Zn and 0.14% Pb from NDDT034.

Future drilling will also focus on the Udias mines complex, which Variscan has not yet tested.
