Drilling Confirms Down-dip Continuation of Silver Mineralization and High-grade Zone Below Existing Pit Limits at Candelaria, Nevada






Silver One Resources Inc. (TSX-V: SVE) (OTCQB: SLVRF) (FSE: BRK1) is pleased to report initial results of the ongoing diamond drill program at its Candelaria project, Nevada. Drilling completed to date consists of a total of 2,295 meters drilled in 7 holes. Assays of 5 holes received have confirmed high-grade silver mineralization below and north of the Mount Diablo pit limits and the down-dip continuation of the mineralization north of the Mount Diablo pit. One high-grade down-dip intercept in hole SO-C-19 047 returned 1,129 gm/t silver over 8 m true width, within a 27.62 meter interval that averaged 350 gm/t silver (see table below).


Silver One’s President and CEO, Greg Crowe commented “We are very pleased with the results received to date. Twin holes 47 and 48 illustrate the potential continuity of high-grade silver mineralization at depth and provide confirmation of previous analytical results obtained by Silver Standard drilling in 2001-2002. These results will allow for an updating of Silver Standard’s historic 43-101 resource, which is well underway. We are also seeing down-dip continuation of the Mount Diablo mineralization, where the farthest hole drilled has extended the mineralized manto for an additional 100 meters. These results are very encouraging. Additional drilling is warranted, not only down-dip, but between the two historic pits and along-strike to test undrilled areas with the objective of potentially expanding the limits of the known mineralization.”

Width and grades at Mount Diablo are in line with historic results reported by Silver Standard in the areas of the Mount Diablo and Northern Belle open-pits. Average thickness of the main mineralized zone, called Lower Candelaria Shear is 22m. Orebody thicknesses hold up well down-dip, with intercepts piercing the mineralized body up to 400 meters north of the lower limit of the Mount Diablo pit (Hole 49). This lies approximately 100 meters north of the nearest historic hole. Total widths of the LCS in the 5 holes assayed vary from 16 meters to 27 meters (average 22 meters) with silver equivalent grades between 122 g/t and 389 g/t. The “LCS” includes a higher-grade core (highlighted in yellow in above table) that ranges in width from 8 meters to 16 meters, with a silver equivalent grades between 1,246 g/t and 270 g/t (see table above). The use of special muds and additives, coupled with careful, expert drilling have helped achieve excellent core recoveries of over 98%. The use of core has greatly aided our understanding of the geological and structural controls on the mineralized system, beyond what was achieved by earlier reverse-circulation drilling.

The QA/QC program for the 2019-2020 drilling at Candelaria included the submission of Certified Reference Materials, blanks, core duplicate, as well as the insertion of crushed duplicates and pulp duplicates at random intervals. Certified Standards were inserted at a rate of one standard for every 20 samples (5% of total) and one blank for every 20 samples (5% of total). Core, pulp and crush duplicates combined were inserted at a rate of one duplicate per every 20 samples (5% of total). The standards used in the 2019-2020 Candelaria drilling program range in grade from 24.8 g/t Ag to 493.0 g/t Ag, and were sourced from Analytical Solutions, Ltd., in Mulmur, ON, Canada. Blanks have been sourced locally from barren silica and marble material. Field core duplicates were obtained from quartered core, crush and ‘pulp’ duplicates were taken from coarse reject material or pulverized splits respectively.


Samples were assayed by American Assay Laboratories (“AAL” in Sparks, NV, USA. (IAS accredited Laboratory, ISO/IEC 17025:2005. AAL also inserts blanks, standards and includes duplicate analyses to ensure proper sample preparation and equipment calibration.

About Silver One


Silver One is focused on the exploration and development of quality silver projects. The Company holds an option to acquire a 100%-interest in its flagship project, the past-producing Candelaria Mine located in Nevada. Potential reprocessing of silver from the historic leach pads at Candelaria provides an opportunity for possible near-term production. Additional opportunities lie in previously identified high-grade silver intercepts down-dip and potentially increasing the substantive silver mineralization along-strike from the two past-producing open pits.


The Company has staked 636 lode claims and entered into a Lease/Purchase Agreement to acquire five patented claims on its Cherokee project located in Lincoln County, Nevada, host to multiple silver-copper-gold vein systems, traced to date for over 11 km along-strike.


An option agreement has been entered into by Silver One to acquire a 100% interest in the Phoenix Silver property. The Phoenix Silver property is a very high-grade silver opportunity, located in Gila County, Arizona


In addition, the Company also holds a 100% interest in three significant silver assets located in Mexico – PeƱasco Quemado, Sonora; La Frazada, Nayarit; and Pluton, Durango, acquired from First Mining Gold, one of the Company’s largest shareholders.
