SilverCrest Mines (TSX: V.SVL, Stock Forum) Monday announced results of further drilling at its 100%-owned Santa Elena Mine in Mexico, this according to a company news release.

Results included 15.6 metres of 23.9 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 307.9 g/t silver and all holes included in this program will be part of the upcoming Pre-Feasibility Study for the Santa Elena Expansion Project.

"We have always been confident that the underground portion of the Santa Elena Main Mineralized Zone would prove to be larger and higher grade than was indicated by the initial drilling and our drilling to date has vindicated that confidence… Our underground decline has progressed beyond 1,050 metres, which will enable us to get access to the underground portion of the ore deposit in the next several months," said SilverCrest President J. Scott Drever.
