The drilling is part of 2017 exploration at the HZG, HPG, LMW, TLP and LME mines. At HZG, HPG and LMW the company completed 21,675 metres of underground diamond drilling and 7989 metres of exploration tunnelling in the first half of 2017. The tunnelling, which comprised comprising drifting, crosscutting and raising, exposed significant high-grade mineralised zones be- neath current production levels within major production veins, espe- cially HZ20 at HZG and H17 at HPG. Underground drilling continuously extended major mineralised vein structures along strike and down dip at the three mines. The drilling is mainly conducted from current production levels to de- lineate the down dip and along-strike extensions of known miner- alised vein structures in the production area and test for new veins in the less-explored areas. During the six months, Silvercorp completed 17,230 metres of underground diamond drilling and 6196m of exploration tunnelling at TLP and LME. This extended major mineralised vein structures along strike and down dip while tunnelling exposed high-grade min- eralised zones. During the June quarter at Ying Mining District 160,408 tonnes of ore was mined, down 8% on the 173,508 tonnes in the same period of 2016 mainly due to downtime arising from several power down days caused by power grid upgrades by State Grid Corpora- tion of China. These impacted the TLP, LMW and LME mines while hoist maintenance and cable steel replacement impacted SGX and HZG. There were approximately 1.3 million ounces of silver, 13.8 million pounds of lead and 700,000 pounds of zinc sold, compared to 1.5 million ounces silver, 14.9 million pounds lead, and 1.8 million pounds of zinc in the June quarter of 2016. At GC mine in Guangdong province Silvercorp mined 64,865 tonnes, up slightly from 64,349 tonnes in the corresponding 2016 quarter. GC sold 189,000 ounces of silver, 2.1 million pounds of lead and 4.2 million pounds of zinc compared to 149,000 silver ounces, 1.9 million pounds of lead and 3.4 million pounds of zinc in the 2016 quarter. During the quarter 4972 metres of underground drilling and 5292 metres of tunnelling were carried out at GC. Silvercorp identifies more mineralisation Silvercorp Metals' SGX mine in the Ying Mining District in Henan province.
