Toronto, Ontario, March 29, 2023 – Silver Mountain Resources Inc. TSXV:AGMR | OTCQB:AGMRF | BVL:AGMR (“Silver Mountain“, “AGMR” or the “Company“) is pleased to provide results for the first 19 drill holes of its underground infill drilling program at the Company’s 100% owned Reliquias silver mine in Huancavelica, central Peru[1]. This campaign, initially planned with 41 holes for a total of 2200 m, was started on December 4, 2022, and, after a 2-week holiday break, continued on January 4, 2023. The assay results of 19 holes drilled to test the Ayayay, Matacaballo, and Sorpresa structures and adjacent vein splays are reported in this release (Table 1). The location of the bore holes is shown in Fig.1.

The equipment utilized for this campaign is a smaller, versatile rig able to operate in narrow workings and recovering BQ diameter core (see photo above). The program’s objective is to further delineate the principal structures through infill drilling as well as to recognize vein splays and tensional structures.

The 19 holes reported in this release are labelled and highlighted in bold green lines. Additionally, underground workings and main mineralized veins are displayed. Inset map shows Reliquias property block with locations of both silver mines and the processing plant.

Alfredo Bazo, President and CEO, commented: “During the 2022 drill program in the western part of the Reliquias deposit, promising intervals with high-grade mineralization were reported for the Ayayay and Sorpresa veins (see press release, December 15, 2022). Following up on those intercepts, the first group of BQ drill holes investigated these veins further to the east and tested for any additional structures in the hanging wall of the Matacaballo vein, over a strike length of almost 800 m. We are encouraged to see strong mineralization in several holes, with silver grades fluctuating between 3.5 to 10 oz/t Ag, together with up to 22% lead and zinc combined. The locally elevated gold (up to 1.54 g/t Au) and high copper values (up to 5.3% Cu) are very promising, as they most likely will positively impact future resource estimates.”   

The following table shows the results of all mineralized intercepts encountered in the drill holes reported in this news release in more detail. The core recovery in these 19 BQ diameter bore holes surpassed 98%, ensuring representative sampling of the mineralized intervals.

Drilling data to date is insufficient to determine true width of mineralization. The last column of the table indicates whether a drill intercept corresponds to one of the principal veins or to a vein splay.

Sampling, QA/QC, and Analytical Procedures

Silver Mountain follows systematic and rigorous sampling and analytical protocols which meet industry standards. These protocols are summarized below. 

All drill holes are diamond core holes with BQ core diameters. Drill core is collected at the underground drill site where recovery measurements are taken before the core is transported by truck to the core logging facility at the Caudalosa Grande mine camp, where it is photographed and geologically logged. In order to achieve the required sample weight for samples from BQ-sized drill holes, the entire core sample interval is placed into a pre-labelled plastic bag, sealed with a plastic zip tie, and identified with a unique sample number. The core is typically sampled over a 1.0 metre sample interval unless the geologist determines the presence of an important geological contact. The bagged samples are then stored in a secure area pending shipment to a certified laboratory sample preparation facility. Samples are sent by batch to the ALS laboratory in Lima for assay. Silver Mountain independently inserts certified control standards, fine and coarse blanks, and duplicates into the sample stream to monitor data quality. These standards are inserted “blindly” to the laboratory in the sample sequence prior to departure from the core storage facilities. At the laboratory, samples are dried, crushed, and pulverized and then analyzed using a fire assay-AA finish analysis for gold and a full multi-acid digestion with ICP-AES analysis for other elements. Samples with results that exceed maximum detection values for the main elements of interest (Ag, Zn, Pb, Cu) are re-analyzed using precise ore-grade ICP analytical techniques, while high gold values are re-analyzed by fire assay with a gravimetric finish.
