Vancouver, B.C., September 27, 2006 - Wildcat Silver Corporation (CNQ: WILD) is pleased to announce it has contracted Pincock, Allen & Holt of Lakewood, Colorado to complete a Preliminary Assessment Scoping Study for its Hardshell silver-lead-zinc-manganese property in Arizona, U.S.A.
The objectives of the study are to determine mining method, basic operating parameters, capital and operating costs estimates, and develop an economic model. The report will also include a new NI 43-101 compliant resource for the Hardshell deposit, scheduled for completion in this last quarter of 2006.
Wildcat President Don Clark said “A mineral inventory calculated by Asarco in 1984 estimated a historical resource of 66 million ounces of silver, and significant grades of zinc, copper and manganese at the Hardshell property. Now that we’ve completed metallurgical tests resulting in recovery rates of 85% for silver and 95% for zinc, copper and manganese, we are pleased to be moving forward with a Preliminary Assessment to define a compliant resource and investigate project economics.”
