BLAINVILLE, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – October 22, 2015) – Maya Gold & Silver (“Maya” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE: MYA) is pleased to announce that the Moroccan Ministry of Energy, Mining, Water and Environments has selected and recently signed an agreement with the Corporation for the granting of five strategic exploration permits near the Zgounder Silver Mine, located in the Taroudant Province in Morocco. Each permit covers 16 square kilometres (4 x 4 km).
The permits are located in the periphery of the Askaoun intrusion which is a favorable structural context for the infiltration of hydrothermal fluids.
“With recent drilling results published and potential extension of the Zgounder deposit, the Corporation just had no choice to secure neighbouring areas and these permits strengthened Maya Gold & Silver’s land position around the Zgounder Mine Area” said Noureddine Mokaddem, President of Maya.
