Avino Silver and Gold Mines provides the following update of activities at its San Gonzalo Mine 80 km North East of Durango, Mexico. Underground mining development is ongoing. The decline from level 4 to level 5 has advanced 170 metres to date, and a total of 200 metres remain until the level 5 elevation of 2130 metres is reached. The 4th level at 2175 metres elevation connects with the bottom of the old San Gonzalo workings. The level has intersected the bottom of the main shaft from the original mining which ceased with the revolution in the early 20th century. Many of the samples taken produced silver assays results greater than 1,000 g/t confirming earlier drill results which indicated the deposit is significantly higher grade at depth, than at level 2 where the 10,000 tonne bulk sample test was drawn from in 2010.
