Vizsla Silver Corp. (TSX-V: VZLA) (OTCQB: VIZSF) (Frankfurt: 0G3) is pleased to provide results from sixteen new holes at the Tajitos vein zone at the Panuco silver-gold project in Mexico. These holes expand the length of Tajitos to over 525 metres and the Company continues to expand the zone of mineralization with an additional nine holes completed which are awaiting assay.
Vizsla President and CEO, Michael Konnert, commented: “Today’s release is another example of the wider, high-grade intercepts we see at Panuco, and mineralization remains open in all directions. Tajitos is fast becoming a significant zone of mineralization. The district’s western side is increasing in importance as Tajitos is only 500 metres east of the Napoleon corridor. Vizsla has tripled the length of mineralization since our last update in late-January. Almost all recent holes are to the south of the historic mine and away from any development. The Company’s aggressive drill program is significantly developing the Napoleon and Tajitos corridors, extending our earlier discoveries, and building significant bodies of mineralization.”
|Note: All numbers are rounded and widths represent downhole lengths. True widths are estimated at approximately 60% of downhole lengths. Silver equivalent is calculated using the following formula: Silver-equivalent = ((Au_g/t x 52.48) + (Ag_g/t x 0.5289)) / 0.5627. Metal price assumptions are $17.50 g/t silver and $1,700 g/t gold, recoveries assumptions are 96% gold and 94% silver, based on similar deposit types.|

Tajitos Drilling detail
The Tajitos vein zone is located along the Cinco Senores Vein Corridor (Figure 1 and 2) where drilling in 2020 and 2021 by Vizsla has returned high-grade mineralization. The Company is exploring to define the extent of the current zone of mineralization and which is now over 525 metres of strike length.
Drilling has defined mineralization to the southwest and beneath the historic mine with robust widths and locally very high grades of silver and gold mineralization. This mineralization is open in each direction along strike and at depth and the Company continues to step-out on approximate 50 metre centres to define the full extent of the zone.
The Tajitos vein zone is composed of a quartz breccia vein with an early white locally banded quartz supporting diorite lithic clasts, followed by a later white to greyish quartz supporting brecciated clasts of earlier white quartz veins. This zone was then cut by a later white to clear quartz vein with local dark bands or patches of fine-grained sulphides that is cutting a zone of quartz psuedomorphs after bladed calcite and pink rhodochrosite. The better grades are in the earlier breccias associated with dark bands or dark patches of very fine-grained disseminated sulphides. This vein zone is hosted in a sequence of variably magnetic diorite and andesite.

About the Panuco project
Vizsla has an option to acquire 100% of the newly consolidated 9,386.5-hectare Panuco district in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, near the city of Mazatlán. The option allows for the acquisition of over 75 kilometres of total vein extent, a 500 ton per day mill, 35 kilometres of underground mines, tailings facilities, roads, power and permits.
The district contains intermediate to low sulfidation epithermal silver and gold deposits related to siliceous volcanism and crustal extension in the Oligocene and Miocene. Host rocks are mainly continental volcanic rocks correlated to the Tarahumara Formation.
Quality Assurance / Quality Control
Drill core and rock samples were shipped to ALS Limited in Zacatecas, Zacatecas, Mexico and in North Vancouver, Canada for sample preparation and for analysis at the ALS laboratory in North Vancouver. The ALS Zacatecas and North Vancouver facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified. Silver and base metals were analyzed using a four-acid digestion with an ICP finish and gold was assayed by 30-gram fire assay with atomic absorption (“AA”) spectroscopy finish. Over limit analyses for silver, lead and zinc were re-assayed using an ore-grade four-acid digestion with AA finish.
Control samples comprising certified reference samples, duplicates and blank samples were systematically inserted into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the Company’s quality assurance / quality control protocol.
The Company’s disclosure of technical or scientific information in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Martin Dupuis, P.Geo., Vice President of Technical Services for Vizsla Silver. Mr. Dupuis is a Qualified Person as defined under the terms of National Instrument 43-101.
