TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2022 /CNW/ - Silver Mountain Resources Inc. (TSXV: AGMR) (OTCQB: AGMRF) (BVL:AGMR) ("Silver Mountain", "AGMR" or the "Company") 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 ("NI 43-101") 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.

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 HQ or NQ 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. The core is then cut in half with a diamond saw blade with half the sample retained in the core box for future reference and the other half 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 1-2 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.Forward Looking Statements
