New Pacific Announces First Assay Results From The 2013 Diamond Drilling Program At The RZY Silver-Lead-Zinc Exploration Project In Qinghai Province, China

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – November 18, 2013: New Pacific Metals Corp. (“New Pacific” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the first tranche of assay results of the 2013 diamond drilling program at the RZY silver-lead-zinc exploration project (the “Project”) in Qinghai province, China.  

Highlights of the most prominent drill results include (note - widths are core length not true widths):

  • 4.40m @ 418 g/t Ag, 8.5% Pb, 5.5% Zn, and 1.25% Sb from 83.3 meters to 87.7 meters, including 1.4m @ 990 g/t Ag, 21.6% Pb, 8.6% Zn, and 3.48% Sb from 86.3 meters to 87.7 meters in hole Zk3504.

The assay results from the first four of 20 holes (see Table 1 below) indicate the mineralization at the Project site is silver-dominated with considerable amounts of lead, zinc, antimony, tin, and copper. Mineralization at the Project is hosted by altered shear structures developed in Permian turbidite sediments and is generally characterized by massive and disseminated sulfides of galena-sphalerite-pyrite in altered sandstone and dacitic dykes.  Hole ZK3503 may have drilled in the footwall of, and parallel to, the mineralized shear structure, hence missing the mineralized zones. The Company’s geological team is finalizing core cutting and sampling for the remaining 16 holes and further assay results will be released once available.

Cut-off of 40 g/t silver or 0.5% of sum of lead and zinc is used in calculation of intercepts. Interval is reported as core length. True width is not available due to speculative geometry of mineralized zones caused by scarcity of drill data at this early exploration stage.

Drill cores are halved by diamond saw with half core samples being shipped to the preparation lab of SGS at Xi’an for preparation.  Pulp samples were then shipped to SGS laboratory located in Tianjin for assay.  Analysis methods are four-acid digestion plus ICP-AES finish (lab code ICP40Q) for silver, lead, zinc, and copper with overlimits going to ore grade assay by AAS finish, and sodium peroxide fusion plus ICP-AES finish (lab code ICP90A) for tin and antimony.  Standard reference materials, blank, and field duplicate samples were inserted prior to shipment for assaying to monitor the quality assurance and quality control of the assay data.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – October 28, 2013: New Pacific Metals Corp. (“New Pacific” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of the 2013 diamond drilling program at the RZY silver-lead-zinc exploration project (the “Project”) in Qinghai province, China.   

The 2013 Project drilling, which was successfully completed on October 20, 2013 was designed to test the size and nature of the silver-lead-zinc mineralized structure and to confirm the assay results of historical trenching and drilling by previous owners. A total of 5,481.48 meters of drilling in 20 holes, (including 86.3m in an abandoned hole) by four drill rigs was completed. These holes were drilled in a 100 meter by 200 meter grid and cover approximately 2,000 metres in length along the main mineralized structure that extends nearly east-west.  Mineralization zones of various widths were intercepted by the drill holes and mineralization is featured by massive and disseminated sulfides of galena-sphalerite-pyrite in altered sandstone and dacitic dykes within and near the sheared structures developed in Permian marine turbiditic clastic sediments.  The Company’s geological crew is working to complete the core logging and cutting.  The core samples will be shipped to the preparation lab of SGS at Xi’an for preparation.  Pulp samples will be then shipped to SGS laboratory located in Tianjin for assay. Assay results will be released once available.

Alex Zhang, P.Geo., is the Qualified Person on the project as defined under National Instrument 43-101. He has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this news release.

Excluding effects from foreign exchange and other non-cash expenses, the Company recorded cash expenses of $1,813,167 in the current fiscal year compared to $1,887,026 in the prior year.  The reduction in expenses was due to a decrease in general expenses as the Tagish Lake Gold project remained in maintenance; offset by additional expenses from the RZY project and other general exploration expenses as the Company explored other strategic alternatives.

As at the end of the fiscal year, the Company had $27.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and short term investments.

FOURTH QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, the Company reported net income attributable to equity holders of $188,591 or $0.003 per share, compared to a net loss of $169,378 or $0.003 per share, in the same prior year period.Â

Excluding effects from foreign exchange and other non-cash expenses, the Company recorded cash expenses of $584,454 in the current quarter compared to $308,916 in the same prior year period. Â The increase in expenses was mainly due to additional expenses incurred from the RZY project, which was acquired in the current fiscal year.

New Pacific Announces 2013 Exploration Program For The RZY Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – April 29, 2013: New Pacific Metals Corp. (“New Pacific” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company plans to commence its 2013 exploration program (the “Program”) at the recently acquired RZY Project (“RZY” or the “Project”) in June 2013 as previously disclosed in the Company’s news release dated April 8, 2013.

In 2013, the Company plans to conduct 10,000 metres of surface diamond drilling to test the extent of the known mineralized zones and to develop a better understanding of the nature of the mineralization.  Historical assay results of trench, pit sampling and limited drilling indicated the presence of high grade silver-lead-zinc mineralization at RZY.  Multiple silver-lead-zinc mineralized zones are hosted in a broad altered structure zone with a strike extent of 6.5 kilometres and width of 25 to 100 metres.  The Program also includes the completion of a surface grid soil survey and a geophysics survey to define future drill targets.  The budget for the Program is $3 million.  The Company is currently sourcing drilling equipment and preparing other resources necessary to execute the program.

In 2012, seven trenches were completed by RZY’s previous owner and assay results from the trenches confirmed the presence of high grade silver-lead-zinc mineralization as indicated by the historical results (see the Company’s news release dated December 21, 2012).  To test the potential depth of the mineralization exposed by surface workings, over 890 metres in five drill holes was drilled in 2012.  The assay results of the drill core samples indicated that the mineralization occurs in the major east-west structural zones and continues at depth, although the width and grades of the drill intercepts were inferior to the results of the surface trenches and pits.  Nevertheless, New Pacific believes there is enough evidence to justify continued exploration at the Project in 2013.

RZY is an early stage silver-lead-zinc exploration project in Qinghai Province, China, situated on a high plateau with an average elevation of 5,000 metres above sea level.  The Project is located approximately 237 kilometres via paved and gravel roads from the capital city of Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, or 820 kilometres via paved highway from Qinghai Province’s capital city of Xining.  For further information about the project, please see the Company’s news release dated December 21, 2012.

Alex Zhang, P.Geo., is the Qualified Person on the project as defined under National Instrument 43-101. He has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.
