Silver Mountain Resources Inc. (TSX-V:AGMR) is pleased to provide an update on its underground drilling at the Reliquias silver mine in Huancavelica, central Peru. The main objective of the 12,000m program is to establish a National Instrument 43-101 – Standard of Disclosure for Mineral Projects compliant mineral resources in H1 2023 that will form the basis of our production decision in H2 2023. In addition, the Company aims to better characterize and extend the known silver-rich zones at depth.1

Alfredo Bazo, President and CEO, commented: “The assay results from the reported drill holes confirm the continuity of high-grade Ag-Pb-Zn-Cu mineralization in the Matacaballo vein in proximity to existing mine workings at the Reliquias deposit. As was expected, the typical pinch-and-swell behaviour of the Sacasipuedes vein is shown in these drill holes, with varying vein widths and grades. We are encouraged that various bore holes have intersected more than one mineralized interval, which may represent splays of the main vein or newly identified structures. Our geological team is currently evaluating these intercepts to incorporate them in our 3D geological model.”
The drilling program is fully funded, with two rigs operating 24 hours per day. 32 holes have been completed to date, with results of 12 holes drilled to test the Matacaballo and Sacasipuedes veins included in this release (Table 1).
The following table provides more detail regarding the mineralized intercepts encountered in drill holes SMR-03-22-MTC to SMR-14-22-SCS.
The scientific and technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Jose Vizquerra, a Director of the Company and a Qualified Person within the meaning of NI 43-101.

Table 1: Weighted assay results of drill holes SMR-03-22-MTC to SMR-14-22-SCS. MTC = Matacaballo vein, SCS = Sacasipuedes vein. AgEq values were calculated using silver, lead, zinc, copper, and gold. Metal prices utilized for the calculations are current prices as of June 9, 2022: Ag – 21.92US$/oz, Pb – 2,150US$/t, Zn – 3,754US$/t, Cu – 4.38US$/lb, and Au – 1,846US$/oz. Recovery is assumed as 100% as sufficient metallurgical data is not yet available. (CNW Group/Silver Mountain Resources Inc.)
