Silver Mountain Resources Inc. (TSX-V: AGMR) (OTCQB: AGMRF) (BVL:AGMR) is pleased to provide an update on its underground drilling at the Company’s Reliquias silver mine in Huancavelica, central Peru. The drill program to date has surpassed a total of 16375 metres, drilled in 69 bore holes. The assay results of 8 holes drilled to test the Matacaballo and adjacent veins are reported in this release (Table 1). The main objective of the fully funded drill program is to establish a National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects compliant mineral resource 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: “Four of the drill holes reported today are located in the western part of the Reliquias mine, returning interesting intercepts in the Matacaballo and Ayayay structures as well as showing various vein splits with promising results. The remainder of the holes were drilled from platform C10 (Fig.1), aimed at the eastern extension of the Matacaballo ore shoot tested by previous bore holes during the current campaign. We are strongly encouraged by the silver and base metal results encountered over significant vein widths in this area. Additional holes to investigate this zone are in progress, with pending assay results.”

 

The following table shows the detailed results of mineralized intercepts encountered in the drill holes reported in this news release.
