Summa Silver Options Historic Eberle Mine at the High-Grade Silver-Gold Mogollon Property, New Mexico






Summa Silver Corp. (TSX-V: SSVR) (OTCQB: SSVRF) (FSE: 48X) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to earn a 100% interest on two patented mining claims covering the Eberle Mine immediately adjacent to the Company’s Mogollon property in southwestern New Mexico from a private landowner.


Eberle Mine Highlights

  • High Potential Target: The Eberle Mine, located at the intersection between the Queen vein and the Maud S vein, is similar to other significantly mineralized zones in the district (see attached figures).
  • Minimal Historic Development: Only partially developed on three levels in the early 1900’s, the Company believes there is strong potential for the discovery of mineralized high-grade zones along strike and below the historic workings.
  • Largely Unexplored: Although anecdotal reports of historic work on the Patents exist, the results are unavailable and no modern exploration work has ever been completed around the mine.
  • Privately Owned Until Now: Having been owned by a private landowner and their heir since 1972, the Patents have never been part of the current property package.


Acquisition Terms


The Company may earn a 100% interest in the Patents by making payments totalling USD $700,000 over four years (Table 1). After completion of the payments, the Patents will not be subject to any underlying royalties or other encumbrances.

Date Cash Payment (USD)
On-Signing $100,000 (Paid)
1st Anniversary $150,000
2nd Anniversary $150,000
3rd Anniversary $150,000
4th Anniversary $150,000
Total $700,000



Galen McNamara, CEO, stated: “Signing an option to earn a 100% interest in the Eberle Mine represents a natural progression for us at Mogollon as we develop new targets to drill. The geological features present at Eberle are strikingly similar to our current drilling area around the old Consolidated Mine. As drilling progresses at Consolidated throughout 2022, we will also prepare permit applications for Eberle so we can immediately shift to delineating the next zone once drilling at Consolidated is completed.”

The Patents


The Patents consist of the Eberle and Bratton patented mining claims that were staked in the 1880’s and patented in 1893. The Eberle and Bratton mining claims encompass 18.89 acres and 17.33 acres, respectively.


Located on the Eberle patent, the Eberle Mine is situated at the intersection between the east-west Maud S vein and the north-south-trending Queen vein. The mine has been developed on three levels, the upper two of which are adit levels and the lower level which is developed from an internal winze. Production from the Eberle Mine is estimated to have been approximately 10,000 tons1 prior to 1916, the bulk of which came from the Maud S vein. Based on the production history of the district, and when comparing this area to the footprint of mineralization around the current drilling area at the Consolidated Mine, the Company believes there is strong potential for significant mineralization below and surrounding the Eberle Mine.

About Summa Silver Corp


Summa Silver Corp is a Canadian junior mineral exploration company. The Company owns a 100% interest in the Hughes property located in central Nevada and has an option to earn 100% interest in the Mogollon property located in southwestern New Mexico. The Hughes property is host to the high-grade past-producing Belmont Mine, one of the most prolific silver producers in the United States between 1903 and 1929. The mine has remained inactive since commercial production ceased in 1929 due to heavily depressed metal prices and little to no modern exploration work has ever been completed.
