Arizona Silver Exploration Inc (CVE:AZS) (OTCMKTS:AZASF) Thursday announced that it has bought out the existing net smelter return royalty (NSR) on its 100% owned high-grade gold and silver Philadelphia property in Arizona.

Arizona Silver Exploration CEO Mike Stark said in a statement: "We are pleased to continue to build shareholder value in Arizona Silver Exploration. This NSR buy-out shows continued commitment from management to raise future opportunity for investment in Arizona Silver Exploration.

We have no future lease or NSR payments due on our Philadelphia property."

The company also reported that it has drilled two RC holes on Section 100N and one core hole on Section 200N on the Philadelphia property, with results expected before Christmas and continuing well into the New Year.

On October 5, Arizona Silver announced drill results from the Philadelphia property that included 33.6 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 54.7 g/t silver over 2.4 metres, beginning at a depth of 28 metres.

The Philadelphia property, located in Mohave County, Arizona, was discovered in the late 1800s and operated intermittently, mainly between 1917 and 1935, as a 50-tonne-per-day underground mine. Past production ranged from 10 to 27 g/t gold with historic silver grades in the production shaft averaging 420 g/t silver.
