Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Processes Gold and Silver From Upper Adit at Buckeye Mine Arizona

Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 16, 2023) - Further to its press release of March 3, 2023, Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) ('SBMI' or 'the Company') is pleased to provide an update on the latest processing campaign at its 125 TPD pilot plant.

Over a recent four-day period from March 8 to March 13, 2023, SBMI processed mineralized vein material at its 100% owned mill in Globe, Arizona, from which it recovered concentrate which will be converted to dore bars, confirming the recent mill modification was successful. The mineralized material was taken from the vein structure in the upper adit behind the Treasure Room.

SBMI Mar 16, 2023 -1.jpg

Dore bar poured March 15, 2023.

SBMI is producing an initial batch of dore bars to be sent to a third-party lab for analysis and to potential purchasers for their analysis. One dore bar has previously been sent to a potential purchaser for its analysis.

Calibrated XRF analysis have confirmed recovered gold in these dore bars, including one bar that analyzed 0.382 % gold. The XRF analysis shows the dore consists primarily of silver and copper, with gold, zinc, nickel, lead and iron. No deleterious material was found in the dore bar. This confirms the previous findings of Dr. Andrew Macdonald from the Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario on the silver contained within a sample collected from the floor of the Treasure Room area.

The crushing circuit of the mill is running at optimal efficiency. The grinding and gravity circuits were run at approximately 50% capacity while being optimized. The number of tons of mineralized material to be processed per hour will be increased as optimization continues and as a result of grade control assay results processed at SBMI's lab at the millsite.

To feed the mill, the Company has accumulated a significant stockpile of mineralized material at the Buckeye Mine for transportation to the mill site. Mining is ongoing in 150 ton (136 tonne) rounds, with four rounds per week, advancing at 12 feet (3.7 metres) per round.

Next steps include increasing the tonnage being shipped from the Buckeye Mine to the mill, continuing mining of the historical higher grade zone, filling the outstanding order, sourcing other purchasers, and continuing to improve operational performance at the Buckeye Mine and at the mill.

SBMI previously announced that it had received an order for 50 kg (1,760 ounces) of silver. The entity that placed that order has advised SBMI that it intends to increase that order to a minimum of 500 kg (17,600 ounces) per month. Management reasonably believes it will be able to satisfy that increased order for the foreseeable future. To decrease risk, the Company is currently in discussions with several additional potential purchasers.

Higher grade samples and dore bars, and what the field team believes to be bornite, will be sent to Harquail School of Earth Sciences for further detailed analysis. See the photo below.

The potential bornite at the Buckeye Mine is believed to be found as a hydrothermal mineral in fractures in cooler areas of the fluid migration. Association with native silver and other precious minerals have been known to occur in such mineralized situations. Further analysis of the potential bornite mineralization is ongoing.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Encounters Further Silver Mineralization and Returns to Processing Material at its Mill

March 3, 2023 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce it is again processing mineralized material its 125 TPD pilot plant. The mill is currently being fine tuned with low grade material to set the recovery parameters. Having resolved the issues with pouring silver dore bars, and having made the necessary related modification to the mill circuit, the Company intends to soon process higher grade material. To date the mill has been operating to specifications with non-detectable values for silver in the tailings produced from the shaker table.

SBMI Mar 3, 2023 -1.jpg

Line of silver from shaker table, March 2, 2023

The Company has one outstanding order for 50 kilograms of silver including credits for any contained copper or gold. The purchaser of those 50 kilograms has indicated a willingness to acquire up to 500 kilograms of silver on one week’s written notice. The Company is also in discussions with other potential purchasers.

Like any responsible producer, SBMI operates its own assay lab. SBMI continues to implement a strategic sampling program using that lab to enable it to maintain silver grade control to the mill.

Below is a list of recent highlight assays and photos from the vein in the upper adit at the Buckeye Mine, from an area to which the Company recently drifted behind the Treasure Room (not all assay results are reported). Note that all of the samples listed and photographed below are from the upper adit 420ft - 444ft from the entrance of the upper adit.

QAQC

All the samples above were collected by SBMI’s field team. Samples were collected and placed in sample bags with their appropriate tag and processed at the Company’s own assay lab. Like any responsible producer, the Company owns its own assay lab and regularly takes samples as part of its production process.

The samples analyzed by SBMI at its facility near Globe, Arizona were processed through the Lab Jaw Crusher, Lab Hammer Mill and Splitter Box into an aliquot. Most of the pulverized aliquot was mixed with a flux and flour combination and melted in a crucible at 1,850 degree Fahrenheit, with the remainder being logged and archived. Upon cooling, the poured melt was in the form of a metal button and slag, following which a bone ash cupel was utilized to eliminate the lead in the button to form a bead.  The bead was then weighed, following which a solution of 6 to 1 distilled water to nitric acid was utilized to dissolve the silver in the bead at approximately 175 degrees Fahrenheit. A much more detailed description of the process and a picture of the assay lab can be found at https://www.silverbulletmines.com/qaqcassaylab.

Readers should be aware that the SBMI facilities have been designed for quick production grade control and are not ISO compliant; however, duplicate sampling with other ISO labs has been done on past samples with good correlation.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Assays 270.6 Ounces Per Ton Silver In Upper Vein At Buckeye Mine In Arizona

February 15, 2023 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces strong initial assay results from the interception of the upper main vein at the Buckeye Mine near Globe, Arizona.

The vein was intercepted approximately 380 feet from the entrance to the adit. Immediately on contact with the vein the first significant assays from the vein were 43, 178.6, and 270.6 ounces silver per ton. The samples yielding these results did not include material from the footwall. The samples were selected at random from the mineralized material removed from the vein and then were sent to SBMI’s assay lab for processing.

SBMI1 February 15, 2023.jpg

Recent Sample from Buckeye Mine

The Company is now mining along the exposed vein with assay results pending from the face. SBMI has extended the workings to 420 feet from the entrance to the adit, the vein is ten feet wide and eleven feet high, and the footwall is estimated by the field team to be four feet wide.

SBMI has stockpiled in excess of 450 tons of vein material at surface at the Buckeye Mine site, for shipment to the mill. The Company is mining 150 to 200 tons of mineralized material per day, although this rate will vary. The Company believes it has achieved the targeted grade necessary to support processing this material at the Company’s mill and to then pour dore bars or create concentrate. Both the dore bars and the concentrate will saleable product, and the Company does not expect to encounter any significant difficulties in finding buyers for those products.

SBMI is also pleased to announce it has begun to resolve the issues with pouring dore bars from this material. The picture below shows a malformed dore bar from September, 2022.

SBMI2 Feb 15, 2023.jpg

Malformed dore bar from Sept, 2022

The Company thanks Dr. Andrew Macdonald, a mineralogist with Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University, for his assistance. Initial results from his work indicate the presence of a highly magnetic iron alloy in the mineralized material. The iron alloy smelts at temperatures of over 3000 degrees F, which is above the silver smelting temperature of roughly 1800 degrees F, and therefore it interferes with the silver smelting process. SBMI has confirmed this thesis by using a high intensity magnet to pull the iron alloy from the concentrate prior to smelting. The dore bar below, poured in February, 2023, resulted from concentrate after the iron alloy was removed.

SBMI3 Feb 15, 2023.jpg

Dore bar poured after the iron alloy was removed; Feb 2023

As a result the Company intends to permanently install a high intensity magnetic separator in the milling operation to improve the likelihood the Company can smelt silver dore bars. The Company intends to store the magnetic concentrates for future research. Continued research will be needed.

The Company is still awaiting the check assay results from American Assay Labs and Actlabs.

 

SBMI’s near term goal is to process the higher grade material at the Company’s mill to produce saleable product.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Discovers New Sulphide Vein Structures at the Buckeye Mine and a New Gold Occurrence

January 31, 2023 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to report results from its Buckeye Mine development, ongoing PGM (platinum group metals) study, assay results from its Black Copper occurrence and the discovery of a new gold occurrence on its Black Diamond Property.

Picture1 SBMI Jan 31, 2023.jpg

Development drift intersecting a wall of sulphides at the Buckeye Mine, Jan. 28, 2023

As of this date the development drift at the Buckeye Mine has advanced about 116 metres from the adit alongside the main vein with ongoing bolting and screening.

In its January 17, 2023 press release the Company advised it “…next intends to drift along the vein to an area believed to contain higher grade mineralization (see page 8 of the Geologic Report dated January 8, 2021).” However, the Company believes it may have intercepted that area of higher grade mineralization sooner than expected.

Approximately 1 metre before turning into the anticipated intersection with the main vertical vein, a 0.6 metre thick horizontal fracture zone was encountered that contained bands of massive sulphides. Horizontal sulphide bands were also noted by the QP for this press release in the Treasure Room along with paper thin layers of high purity native silver, similar to the bands in the newly discovered fracture zone. While the Company expected to locate the area of higher grade mineralization, the placement of this 0.6 metre wide area of sulphide mineralization was a positive surprise to the Company.

A blast in the drift on January 27, 2023 exposed another wall of sulphides at the end of the drift. These sulphides were also encountered sooner than the Company expected. Samples of the sulphide material are being prepared to be sent for assaying and further petrographic examination.

Regarding the earlier reported PGM assays and as previously reported, check assay samples have been sent to three independent certified labs. SBMI is awaiting complete reporting of the assays from the three labs. In addition to these check assays, the Company has contracted Dr. Andy McDonald, Mineralogist, of the Harquail School of Earth Sciences, at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, to undertake sample preparation, petrographic and scanning electron microscope examination of two samples derived from the Buckeye Mine.

The first sample being analyzed by Dr. McDonald was taken by the QP in November, 2022. It was diabase from the floor of the Treasure Room of the Buckeye Mine containing a silvery ductile mineral, subsequently confirmed by Dr. McDonald to be high purity native silver. When this sample was examined with an uncalibrated handheld X-ray fluorescent unit, the presence of palladium at 29 and 21 parts per million was noted. The second sample provided to Dr. McDonald was a malformed dore bar poured by SBMI in September, 2022 derived from the Buckeye Mine, containing highly refractory “unknown material.”

Also in SBMI’s January 17, 2023 press release, SBMI advised third part geologic consultants including the QP had visited the Black Copper occurrence in late November and early December, 2022. Black Copper is situated on SBMI’s Black Diamond property roughly one point five kilometres south of the Buckeye Mine and is referred to in the January, 2021 Geologic Report. Samples from Black Copper were taken and reported the following results:

Sample number         Au (ppb)             Cu ppm

342151                           615                    >1000

342152                           192                    >1000

342153                           941                    >1000

342154                           654                    >1000

 

The over-detection limit for copper on these samples was 1000 parts per million. These four samples were sent for further analysis which returned:

 

Sample number          Cu ppm                    Cu %

 

342151                           22,400                    2.24

342152                           37,400                    3.740

342153                           34,000                    3.400

342154                           54,900                    5.490

 

In addition during this geological study, an area of broken rusty quartz float was observed by the QP near the trail to the Richmond Basin to the west of the McMorris and Buckeye Mines. This is the Company’s first testing of this area. These quartz fragments appeared to be segments of narrow quartz veins containing sulphides. Due to a soil cover of a few inches to a foot in this area, limited time prevented exposure of the underlying bedrock. Four samples were collected from surface and yielded the following gold assays:

 

Sample number          Au (ppb)               Bi (ppm)

342109                             17                           2

342110                           4450                       412

342111                              64                       1600

342112                               7                          16

 

A bismuth assay of 1600 ppm and a silver assay over 100 ppm was recorded in sample 342111. The QP of this press release highly recommends further evaluation of this new gold occurrence.

Silver Bullet Mines Intercepts Vein in Arizona

January 17, 2023 - Burlington, Ontario – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce it has intercepted the targetted vein, behind the historical Treasure Room at its Buckeye Silver Mine. This interception occurred on schedule and within SBMI’s budget. To intercept the vein SBMI rehabilitated, extended, screened and bolted the upper development drift. The material being removed is being deposited in specific locations for future evaluation.

SBMI next intends to drift along the vein to an area believed to contain higher grade mineralization (see page 8 of the Geologic Report dated January 8, 2021). The Company believes this target area to be approximately 200 feet from where SBMI recently intercepted the vein.

SBMI intends to carry out multiple daily assays of the materials referred to above at its assay facility at its millsite. The mill is ready to recommence processing immediately upon receipt of mineralized material from the Buckeye. The assay results are intended to inform the geologic team and not all such results will be disseminated.

In its December 15, 2022 press release, SBMI advised third party geologic consultants would be providing the Company with a report including observations, comments, and recommendations, based upon their November 29 - December 14, 2022 site visit to Arizona. They inspected the third-party independent lab used for sample testing, visited the Buckeye Mine site, visited the Company’s millsite, and visited the Black Copper and Helena occurrences, both of which are situated on SBMI’s Black Diamond property and are referred to in the January, 2021 Geologic Report.

Those geologic consultants also carried out a brief initial re-inspection of NQ core drilled at the Buckeye Mine by a previous optionee. This re-inspection has revealed coarse grained gabbronorite phases containing magnetite disseminations and thin bands within an area previously mapped as diabase. Small intervals containing olivine phenocrysts were also noted. These rocks may have potential for PGM mineralization. Further examination is being undertaken on these in situ rocks, the core, the Black Copper and the Helena occurrences. Samples from each has been sent to a third-party accredited lab for analysis and further work is ongoing. The Company can find no evidence of any PGM testing having previously been undertaken on this core or the rock labelled as diabase.

Finally, contact with various mineralogical and geochemical labs is ongoing to resolve metallurgical and refractory issues encountered while trying to pour dore bars from the Buckeye Mine material.

Mr. Robert G. Komarechka, P.Geo., an independent consultant, has reviewed and verified SBMI’s work referred to herein, and is the Qualified Person for this release.

Silver Bullet Mines to Resume Development of Buckeye Silver Mine and Update on PGM

December 15, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce the imminent resumption of development of its Buckeye Silver Mine near Globe, Arizona.

SBMI plans to extract a bulk sample of mineralized material from the area of the Buckeye Silver Mine known as the Treasure Room, described in a press release of March 1, 2022, located in the upper adit of the Buckeye Silver Mine. Prior to accessing the Treasure Room, screening and rock bolting of the adit is required pursuant to MSHA regulations, which the Company estimates should take approximately one week to complete.

Upon completion of the safety measures, SBMI intends to commence work to extract mineralized material, and the Company estimates that it should take two to three weeks to intercept the veins described in the press release of March 1, 2022. Mineralized material from the floor of the Treasure Room has previously been assayed and results previously reported (March 1, 2022). The Company has previously been able to process mineralized material from this source into dore bars. Further mineralized material from this same source, once extracted, will be processed by the Company’s mill.

SBMI also advises that on a recent site visit to the Buckeye Silver Mine and the Black Diamond Property, the Company’s consulting geologists Robert Komarechka and John Corkery examined and re-logged a portion of core drilled by a prior optionee at the Buckeye Silver Mine in 2017 (press release of December 8, 2022), and extracted samples from the core, from the upper adit of the Buckeye Silver Mine, and from other parts of the Black Diamond Property. Blanks and standards were added, and all samples have been sent to a division of Actlabs for analysis for PGMs.

Messrs. Komarechka and Corkery will be providing the Company with a Report including observations, comments, and recommendations and subject to results of assays, plan a site visit to the Buckeye Silver Mine and the Black Diamond Property early in 2023.

Cautionary and Forward-Looking Statements

Readers should be cautioned that the Company’s decision to move forward with the construction of and production at the Washington Mine and the Buckeye Mine is not based on the results of any pre-feasibility study or feasibility study of mineral resources demonstrating economic or technical viability. The Company has undertaken exploration and development activities; and after taking into consideration various factors, including but not limited to: historical data, the exploration and development results to date, technical information developed internally, the availability of financing, and the starting costs as estimated internally by the Company’s management, the Company is of the view that the establishment of mineral reserves by way of a prefeasibility or feasibility study at this stage is not necessary and would be unduly costly, and that the most responsible utilization of the Company’s resources is to proceed with the development of the mines. Readers are cautioned that due to the lack of prefeasibility study or feasibility study, there is increased uncertainty and higher risk of economic and technical failure associated with the Company’s decision. In particular, there is additional risk that mineral grades may be lower than expected, and the risk that construction or continuing mining operations may be more difficult or more expensive than management expected. Production and economic variables may vary considerably, due to the absence of a detailed economic and technical analysis in accordance with National Instrument 43-101. Failure at the Washington or Buckeye Mine may materially adversely impact the Company’s overall ability to continue as a going concern.

Silver Bullet Mines Provides Update on Idaho and Arizona Mines

 

December 8, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to provide an update on operations at its Washington Mine in Idaho and at its Buckeye Mine in Arizona.

In Arizona at the Buckeye, core drilled by a prior optionee at the Buckeye Mine in 2017 has been located and a chain of custody established. The core is being re-logged. There is no record of any of it having been tested for platinum group elements. It is intended that some of such core will be split and sent to an accredited third-party lab for testing, and the remainder will be stored after it is logged.

Historical third party core from 2017

Historical core being split in December, 2022

In Idaho, the entrance to the historical past-producing gold and silver mine has been screened and rock bolted. In management’s opinion the entrance to the historical mine is secure. Efforts continue to ensure the access area past the entrance is safe to enable the field team and contract miner to advance towards what is believed to be the mineralized zone. A mining engineer has created a mine plan and a ventilation plan which will be implemented once the area is secure. The Company believes it has the necessary equipment to proceed, including a recently acquired mucker. If timber is required, SBMI has the timber rights at surface at the Washington Mine and can harvest the timber as needed.

The mining plan at the Washington Mine is subject to evolution as new facts are encountered on surface, underground and in the supply chain. The current plan is to mine around the caved area, develop a raise in the mineralized material up to surface, and to work through the winter as possible. This requires SBMI to acquire an explosive licence, for which it is applying.

Winter weather in Idaho is an uncontrollable risk, but mitigated at the Washington Mine due to the mine’s proximity to a highway.

Readers should be cautioned that the Company’s decision to move forward with the construction of and production at the Washington Mine and the Buckeye Mine is not based on the results of any pre-feasibility study or feasibility study of mineral resources demonstrating economic or technical viability. The Company has undertaken exploration and development activities; and after taking into consideration various factors, including but not limited to: historical data, the exploration and development results to date, technical information developed internally, the availability of financing, and the starting costs as estimated internally by the Company’s management, the Company is of the view that the establishment of mineral reserves by way of a prefeasibility or feasibility study at this stage is not necessary and would be unduly costly, and that the most responsible utilization of the Company’s resources is to proceed with the development of the mines.

Silver Bullet Mines Closes Financing and Takes Samples from Diabase

 

November 3, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario – On October 21, 2022 Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announced a financing of Units (the “Financing”), whereby each Unit consisted of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each Unit is priced at $0.20 (twenty cents). Each common share purchase warrant has a 2-year term and is exercisable at $0.30 (thirty cents).

SBMI announces it has closed on the first tranche of the Financing, being $447,000. This represents 2,235,000 common shares and 2,235,000 common share purchase warrants. The Company expects further tranches to close in the near future. In relation to the Financing the Company paid commissions by way of 84,000 broker warrants and cash commissions of $16,800. Insiders are still blacked out by order of the Chair and were not allowed to participate in the Financing.

On September 26, 2022 the Company announced it had found high-grade gold, platinum, palladium, rhodium and osmium (the “Bonus Materials”) in concentrates resulting from 200 tons of material from the Buckeye Mine. To help identify the source and/or location of the Bonus Materials, and to help determine whether the Bonus Materials are limited to the Buckeye veins or are also present in the host materials around the veins, the Company recently took samples from the diabase at several locations near and in the Buckeye Silver Mine. “Diabase” is also known as “country rock” or “host rock”, and is the material hosting the many veins in and near the Buckeye Silver Mine.

The Company announces it has received assay results from an independent lab with respect to those samples taken from the diabase. Those results are being considered and will be disclosed to the public as soon as possible.

Finally, and as previously disclosed, the Company has encountered procedural challenges in completing its first audit as an operating company, including but not limited to cross-border documentation. Some of these challenges were caused by COVID-19 restrictions on travel to the mill and mine sites in Arizona, others by a local inexperience with audit processes. Management sees these challenges as transitory and procedural. There are no items in disagreement, whether material or not, between the auditors and the Company. Management and the board expect to be able to file the audited financial statements and the MDA for the year ended June 30, 2022 imminently.

This was because the Company has been provided with a steady stream of data and opinions from third parties with respect to adding a further processing facility to the existing mill in Arizona to be able to extract the recently discovered palladium, platinum, rhodium, osmium and high-grade gold, and at this time the Company is unable to determine which facts are material and which are not. This determination can only be made in the fullness of time as further facts are determined. The trading blackout is the most conservative approach to protecting the integrity of the markets and the reputations of the insiders.

During this period the Company has been working with its auditors in the normal course to prepare the Company’s audited financial statements and MDA for the year ending June 30, 2022 (the “Filings”). The likely imminent determination of which facts are material may impact the subsequent event notes for the Filings. Further, the Company has encountered procedural challenges in completing its first audit as an operating company, including but not limited to cross-border documentation. Some of these challenges were caused by COVID-19 restrictions on travel to the mill and mine sites in Arizona, others by a local lack of familiarity with audit processes. Management sees these challenges as transitory and procedural. There are no items in disagreement, whether material or not, between the auditors and the Company.

As a result, it is likely the Filings will not be filed on Friday, October 28th, 2022. The effect of this will likely be a management cease trade order, which is the same in substance as the blackout already imposed by the Chair. There is no impact upon any shareholder apart from directors, management and consultants. The Company anticipates being able to file the Filings very soon thereafter as the procedural challenges are remedied.

The Company waited as long as possible to disseminate this press release, to obtain as current input as possible from the auditors and the Company’s audit committee as to timing to effect the Filings.

Silver Bullet Mines Financing for High-Grade Gold and PGMs

 

October 21, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario – On September 26, 2022 Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) disclosed it had found significant levels of palladium, platinum, rhodium, osmium and gold in its concentrate. On October 18, 2022 SBMI announced a second round of assay results proving up the palladium, platinum, rhodium, osmium and gold in representative mineralized material from its Buckeye Silver Mine near Globe, Arizona.

To allow SBMI to exploit the palladium, platinum, rhodium, osmium and gold, in addition to the original silver targets, SBMI announces its intention to carry out a non-brokered financing of Units. Each Unit will be priced at $0.20 (twenty cents) and will comprise of one common share and one full 30-cent (thirty cents) warrant with a 24-month term, with each such warrant being exercisable into a common share (the “Financing”).

The target amount for the Financing will be $600,000 (six hundred thousand dollars), with the number of Units to issue as a result of the Financing being 3,000,000. Units will be allocated on a first come, first served basis although SBMI retains the right to accept, reject or modify subscription agreements as it sees fit. The Financing is subject to regulatory approval.

SBMI currently owns a gravity mill near Globe, Arizona that is fully functional for the extraction of silver. The use of proceeds from the Financing will be to determine what equipment will be required to augment that mill’s capabilities to also extract the other elements mentioned above. All of the existing mill will be retained. Other proceeds from the Financing will be for working capital.

Silver Bullet Mines Continues to Assay for High-Grade Gold and PGMs

 

October 18, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario – On September 26, 2022 Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) disclosed it had found significant levels of palladium, platinum, rhodium, osmium and gold in its concentrate.

To help identify with greater precision the location of the source of the platinum, palladium, rhodium, osmium and gold, SBMI recently took samples directly from locations around the Buckeye Silver Mine and the Company’s mill site, including from crushed material, directly from the vein, from diabase samples from the wall rock and from tailings from the run of lower grade material. The location from which those samples were taken and their assay results are below:

Oct 18 V3.png

Samples from all locations above were taken to be as representative of the local mineralized material as possible. Samples taken from the crushed ore are by their nature representative of the source mineralized material.

In management’s opinion, this round of results provides further strong evidence for the conclusion that the Buckeye Silver Mine may host economic amounts of platinum, rhodium, palladium, osmium and gold, in addition to the original silver targets. Management has engaged third party engineers, metallurgists and geologists to assist in creating a new process flow sheet and in determining the nature of the mineralized material at the Buckeye Silver Mine. Without effecting selective disclosure, management has also had positive preliminary discussions with potential financiers, pending the delivery of the flow sheet and a rough budget.

QAQC

For each batch, Lone Pine Analytical of Phoenix, Arizona sampled two distinct samples (approx 200mg), digested, filtered, diluted and analyzed. For the digestion, the lab used [1mL HF: 4.5mL Nitric Acid: 4.5mL HCI]. The samples were digested in a microwave in sealed PTFE tubes where the temperature reached 200C with a total cycle time of 40 minutes. Bismuth (Bi) was used the internal standard. A three-point calibration, plotted through zero was used with excellent linear correlation for each element. Thus, the lab used an internal and external standards (instrument calibration). Chain of custody protocols were strictly observed. Lone Pine Analytical, as of September 11, 2022, is in the process of renewing its ISO /IEC-17025 lab accreditation with a scope for metals in soils and rocks.

Readers are cautioned that although management has made every reasonable effort to ensure the samples are as representative of the local mineralized material as possible, the samples above (apart from the crushed ore samples) are ultimately random by nature and may not be representative of the mineralization throughout the Buckeye Silver Mine.

Mr. Robert G. Komarechka, P.Geo., an independent consultant, has reviewed and verified SBMI’s work referred to herein, and is the Qualified Person for this release.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Discovery of Gold and Critical Mineral Palladium

 

September 26, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) has assayed, among other elements, significant quantities of palladium and gold in the mineralized material from its Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona. These surprise discoveries are not factored into any of the Company’s internal financial projections. This mineralized material was taken from a newly exposed section at the Buckeye.

Palladium is currently trading at roughly USD$2,100 per ounce and gold is currently trading at roughly USD$1,650 per ounce. For reference below, SBMI notes that one ppm (part per million) is equivalent to one gram per ton. There are 28.34 grams in one ounce.

How The Gold and Palladium Were Found

The gold and palladium were discovered after SBMI processed roughly 60 tons of Buckeye Mine material at its 100%-owned mill, and then encountered challenges in pouring proper silver dore bars to satisfy the outstanding sample run order. An example of such challenges is in the picture below.

Silver Bullet 1 Septemeber 26, 2022.jpg

                                                      Recent dore bar from ore at the Buckeye Mine

To help identify the possible source of this, SBMI sent samples (the “First Batch”) from its concentrates to Lone Pine Analytical, a third-party lab, for further analysis. That analysis revealed elevated levels of palladium and gold, as per the chart below:

sbmi table 1.png

In response to these unusual values, SBMI will be undertaking referee sampling with another independent third-party ISO accredited lab.

“Those are astonishing results for the gold and palladium,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “To the best of our knowledge the only significant producer of palladium in the United States of America is Sibanye-Stillwater in Montana, so this is a possible game-changer, not just for SBMI but for mining in Arizona. We have heard anecdotal evidence of Pt-Pd production as a by-product of porphyry mining in the Globe area and have seen data from a local prospective Pt-Pd property, but we are still investigating what our results mean and we are considering what SBMI’s next steps will be.”

The Company believes the results above are a fair representation of the 60 tons of ore extracted from the Buckeye Mine.

SBMI’s In-House Assays

SBMI then took a batch (the “Second Batch”) of a further seven samples from various locations in the mill, representing roughly 140 tons of ore. SBMI’s assay team assayed those samples for silver only, following which the following unique identifiers were added to each sample:

  1. Head Feed 700 oz/Ton

  2. 100 gm 2503oz/Ton Conc

  3. #1 Table Cons. Original

  4. #1 Table Cons from Mill

  5. #2 Table Cons from Mill

  6. Tails

  7. Dorie Bead

 

Those titles were provided by SBMI’s assay team to Lone Pine Analytics. The leader of SBMI’s assay team, Mr. Robert Budd, collected and assayed those samples. SBMI has on prior occasions and on its website made disclosure of Mr. Budd’s credentials and QAQC processes, and will include these matters below.

Second Batch to Lone Pine Analytics

After being assayed for silver only by SBMI, the Second Batch was then sent to Lone Pine Analytical for further analysis of additional elements. The average values for Au and Pd of the 7 samples returned from Long Pine Analytics for the gold and the palladium were as follows:

chart proper.png

In response to these unusual values, SBMI will be undertaking referee sampling with another independent third party ISO accredited lab.

All of the roughly 200 tons of material were taken directly from the vein accessed at the lower drift. All 200 tons were taken and processed in the normal course, with no selective sampling.

“We made a decision early on to build our own mill in Arizona to high standards, and as a result we have been able to immediately recognise there were significant amounts of elements other than silver in this new material” continued Mr. Carter. “Standard exploration techniques would not have found the gold or palladium without the expenditure of millions of exploration dollars. We are there more quickly for much less money.”

SBMI has found a potential buyer for the concentrates who is likely able to process the palladium in addition to the gold and silver, but before making final decisions SBMI is waiting on further assay data and input from metallurgists, engineers and others.

QAQC For SBMI

All the samples above were collected by Mr. Robert Budd, a Metallurgical Process Engineer who began his career in metallurgical engineering in 1972. He has held various positions with various employers including Senior Engineer, Superintendent, Engineer, Technical Assistant, Technician, and Lab Assistant. Most recently, prior to joining SBMI he was involved in designing and creating an internal assay facility in Arizona for Freeport McMorran Inc. He has also been the the Principal Process Specialist for Fluor Canada out of Vancouver, the Senior Metallurgical Engineer for Doe Run Lead, the Project Engineer for the commissioning of a copper concentrator start-up at Oz Minerals’ Prominent Hill Mine in South Australia, Senior Metallurgical Engineer for Cyprus Miami/Phelps Dodge Miami in Arizona, Metallurgical Engineer and Metallurgical Lab Supervisor for Newmont Gold in Nevada, and Chief Metallurgist for Inspiration/Cyprus Miami in Arizona among other positions.

The samples analyzed by SBMI at its facility near Globe, Arizona were processed by Mr. Budd through the Lab Jaw Crusher, Lab Hammer Mill and Splitter Box into an aliquot. Most of the pulverized aliquot was mixed with a flux and flour combination and melted in a crucible at 1,850 degree Fahrenheit, with the remainder being logged and archived. Upon cooling, the poured melt was in the form of a metal button and slag, following which a bone ash cupel was utilized to eliminate the lead in the button to form a bead. The bead was then weighed, following which a solution of 6 to 1 distilled water to nitric acid was utilized to dissolve the silver in the bead at approximately 175 degrees Fahrenheit. A much more detailed description of the process and a picture of the assay lab can be found at https://www.silverbulletmines.com/qaqcassaylab.

QAQC For Lone Pine Analytics

For each batch, Lone Pine Analytical of Phoenix, Arizona sampled two distinct samples (approx 200mg), digested, filtered, diluted and analyzed. For the digestion, the lab used [1mL HF: 4.5mL Nitric Acid: 4.5mL HCI]. The samples were digested in a microwave in sealed PTFE tubes where the temperature reached 200C with a total cycle time of 40 minutes. Bismuth (Bi) was used the internal standard. A three-point calibration, plotted through zero was used with excellent linear correlation for each element. Thus, the lab used an internal and external standards (instrument calibration). Chain of custody protocols were strictly observed. Lone Pine Analytical, as of September 11, 2023, is in the process of renewing its ISO /IEC-17025 lab accreditation with a scope for metals in soils and rocks

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. - Begins Processing of High Grade Ore

 

September 1, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce two major achievements. It has begun processing higher grade ore at its 100%-owned mill, and it has signed its first contract for the delivery of silver dore bars.

“These are major milestones in the Company’s growth,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “In less than a year after starting construction of our mill, we are processing the higher grade material extracted from our Buckeye Silver Mine and we have signed our first contract to deliver silver out of that mine. This is outstanding work from everyone on the team.”

Silver Bullet August 31, 2022.jpg

                                                             First run of higher grade material at the mill

The bars for the order will be poured at the Company’s mill site near Globe, Arizona, using a mixture of the lower and the higher grade ores taken from the Company’s Buckeye Silver Mine. Several of the bars have already been poured and are ready for shipping and it is intended that the others will be poured in the immediate future.

This first order is a sample run of 50 kilograms of dore silver. The identity of the counter-party to the agreement is confidential. That counter-party has expressed an intention after this sample run to purchase all available uncommitted silver product produced at the Company’s mill.

SBMI recently received a technical report (not NI43-101) from its third-party engineering firm with minor recommendations to increase efficiencies at the mill. SBMI has implemented such recommendations while running the lower grade material stockpiled at the mill. The successful processing of this ore has led to the decision to start processing the higher grade material. In management’s opinion the mill is now running at near-optimal efficiencies.

The grade of the ore and the dore bars will be disclosed in the normal course, as the ore is processed.

Please visit the Company’s website for videos of the higher grade material being processed.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Updates on Washington Mine in Idaho

 

August 23, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing operations at its 100%-owned Washington Mine in Idaho. This mine is on patented lands.

Site work has commenced to prepare the property for rehabilitation and production. A local portable sawmill operator is on-site to prepare to mill timbers. A contractor has been scheduled to upgrade the access road and to establish site water, electricity and storage. Near-term surface work will focus on rock bolting, screening and shotcreting the historical portal face, as well as preparing timbers and insulation for mine entry support.

Contract terms have been negotiated with an underground mine contractor and, subject to completion of a federal agency filing and the approval of mine design by the Company’s mine engineer, underground rehabilitation is anticipated to begin in or about October. It is not possible at this time to provide a timetable for production as that largely depends upon the rehabilitation process. At some point in time, Mine Safety and Health Administration will carry out an inspection.

The Washington Mine first saw production in the late 1800's with an average gold grade of one ounce per ton. It again produced gold in the 1930's during which time the then-owner lacked the process capability needed to produce silver, so a decision was made to block out the silver mineralization with the intention of returning at a future date to extract it. To the best of SBMI’s knowledge, the blocked-out volume remains in situ. A historical report indicates the blocked-out volume contains an estimated 3 million ounces of silver with a grade of 30 to 90 ounces per ton and 15,000 ounces of gold at 0.3 ounces per ton. (Source, “Geological Evaluation”, Roger G. Stoker, P.G. and Ryne C. Stoker, Student Geologist, Energy Services Inc., December, 1981.)

Stoker also indicated the underground location of the “Berger Vein”, described as a “gold ore shoot 25 feet wide, 135 feet long, and unknown depth.” Average grades were given as 0.3 oz/ton gold with unknown silver content. Additional notes in Stoker suggest that the Berger Vein had been intersected in drifting at the 400-foot level.

The references above to data and observations derived from work not carried out by SBMI are of historical nature only and cannot be relied upon at this time. SBMI does not know the methods by which such work was carried out, or whether all or part of it was under the supervision of a Qualified Person, as that term is defined in NI43-101. SBMI refers to such data and observations to inform its knowledge of the area.

SBMI disclosed the results of part of its field program on December 9, 2021 (filed at SEDAR December 15, 2021). A reminder of those strong results is below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Based in part on the information from Stoker, and in part on the data above, and from its own other observations, SBMI took a bulk sample from the Washington Mine, the results of which were disclosed on January 18, 2022. That bulk sample returned 55.5 ounces silver per ton, within the historical parameters of 30 to 90 ounces silver per ton.

Further, the Company may have found the surface expression of the Berger Vein in its 2021 field season. As disclosed on December 9, 2021 soil geochemistry returned gold values up to 9 ppm in areas of shallow soil cover. The Company anticipates that future field work comprising of further soil geochemistry and hand trenching could lead to exposure of in-place gold mineralization.

Underground, historical plan maps depict a cross cut at the main portal level at about 200 feet lower in elevation. The Company believes the cross cut accessed the Berger Vein. SBMI intends to access this cross cut during rehabilitation efforts. Once safe passage through the cross cut is secured, SBMI anticipates systematic sampling, evaluation and potential underground drilling in the Berger Vein area.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Operational Update

 

August 11, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) provides an operational update on the ramp-up of its 125 metric ton per day pilot plant in Arizona, on progress at its Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona, and on progress at the Washington Mine in Idaho.

While processing the lower-grade material from the Buckeye, all components of the Arizona mill continue to perform within parameters. Adjustments continue to be made within those parameters to fine-tune production. As a result the mill is producing silver concentrate and is pouring silver dore bars from this material, while the ramp-up continues. The Company intends to introduce higher-grade material from the Buckeye once the mill is operating optimally, to avoid wastage in the tailings.

sbmi 2.jpg

                                                               Dore bars poured at the end of July, 2022

 

The silver concentrate and dore bars have been and continue to be shipped to potential purchasers for analysis. All purchases will likely be FOB the mill site.

 

Occasional challenges are being encountered with the motor and starter for the ball mill. The field team reasonably believes these challenges can be overcome in the near future.

 

At the Buckeye Mine, mineralized material is being extracted from the vein above the decline near the Treasure Room. SBMI is also bolting, screening and adding timber to the adit as part of its ESG commitment.

 

In Idaho at the Washington Mine, SBMI has begun the process to have the adit timbered and brought to current safety standards. The next step there would be for the contract miner to begin the process of extracting a bulk sample of between 1,500 and 3,000 tons, to be processed at a local mill. Management expects SBMI’s capital investment for this process to be relatively minor.

 

Largely due to Covid the ramp-up of the mill in Arizona has taken longer than anticipated which has had an effect upon the Company’s anticipated cashflow. With a view to protecting its treasury SBMI is in advanced negotiations to enter into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with its largest institutional shareholder (the “Lender”) whereby SBMI would borrow CDN$650,000 (six hundred and fifty thousand dollars) for an 18-month term. The Agreement would provide for an 8 % interest rate and a conversion feature, whereby upon conversion the loan may convert into 2,166,667 units (each, a “Unit”) at an effective price of $0.30 per Unit. This is at a premium to the current market price. Each Unit would be comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant exercisable at $0.35 for a four-year term.

 

Closing on the Agreement is conditional upon regulatory approval.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Releases Assay Results including 2,363.8 oz/t Silver

 

July 25, 2022 – Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF)  (“SBMI” or “the Company”) announces spectacular assay results for silver from its Buckeye Mine in Arizona.

The assay results below came from a test carried out by SBMI to further confirm, in practice, the efficiencies with which SBMI’s assay lab would process the high-grade ore from the Buckeye Mine. The person who carried out the test in Arizona was Ron Murphy, the Company’s VP Mining, together with SBMI’s assay team, under the supervision of Bob Budd, metallurgical engineer.

Below is a picture of the Heavy Rock2 select grab sample that SBMI took from behind the Treasure Chest at its Buckeye Mine in March, 2022. Mr. Murphy recently sampled Heavy Rock2, in a process that resulted in two beads.

One bead graded 2,214.4 oz/t silver and the other 2,363.8 oz/t silver.

These results are spectacular and Management is thrilled with them as the extreme results were unexpected due to the fine dissemination of silver throughout this type of rock. However, Management believes the grade of future beads can be increased as the field team continues to fine tune the mill and the assay lab to increase their efficiencies.

“We designed the assay lab and the mill with the high-grade material from the Buckeye in mind, in the belief they would work together to produce saleable high grade material”, said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “That belief is why we built a complete processing facility in under 10 months, for less than $3,000,000. These assay results go a long way to justifying that belief and the building of the mill. Our field team has been incredible.”

Bead from Buckeye Mine Ore grading 2,363.8 oz/t silver

SBMI continues to bring what it believes to be high- grade product from the Buckeye Mine to the millsite, in anticipation of completing the mill tune-up with lower grade material, and then commencing milling the higher grade material. Discussions are underway with various potential buyers for SBMI’s concentrate, and for the dore once poured.

QA/QC

The samples analyzed by SBMI at its facility near Globe, Arizona were processed through the Lab Jaw Crusher, Lab Hammer Mill and Splitter Box into an aliquot. Most of the pulverized aliquot was mixed with a flux and flour combination and melted in a crucible at 1,850 degree Fahrenheit, with the remainder being logged and archived. Upon cooling, the poured melt was in the form of a metal button and slag, following which a bone ash cupel was utilized to eliminate the lead in the button to form a bead.  The bead was then weighed, following which a solution of 6 to 1 distilled water to nitric acid was utilized to dissolve the silver in the bead at approximately 175 degrees Fahrenheit. A much more detailed description of the process and a picture of the assay lab can be found at https://www.silverbulletmines.com/qaqcassaylab.

Readers should be aware that the SBMI facilities have been designed for quick production grade control and are not ISO compliant; however, duplicate sampling with other ISO labs has been done on past samples with good correlation.

 

Readers are cautioned Heavy Rock2 may not be representative of all the material in the Treasure Room or overall at the Buckeye Silver Mine. Readers are further advised that these preliminary assay values do not represent a reserve or resource at this time. While significant silver values have been encountered, the quantity, grade, or metal or mineral content of a deposit has not been categorized as an inferred mineral resource, an indicated mineral resource, a measured mineral resource, a probable mineral resource, reserve or a proven mineral reserve.

 

Mr. Robert G. Komarechka, P.Geo., an independent consultant and the Qualified Person for this release, has reviewed and verified SBMI’s work referred to herein and approves this Press Release for public dissemination.

Silver Bullet Mines Produces Silver

 

Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 13, 2022) - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) ("SBMI" or "the Company") is both pleased and proud to announce it has successfully produced silver and copper at its wholly owned 125 metric ton per day mill near Globe, Arizona.

"This production is the result of years of hard work, planning and dedication, and the incredible talents of the Arizona team," said A. John Carter, SBMI's CEO. "Over the past ten months, despite COVID-19 and global supply chain issues, we have spent less than three million dollars building this fully functional mill, a staggering feat. This is to my mind a one-of-a-kind experience."

The mill produced its first silver concentrate from lower grade ore on July 12, 2022 and plans to soon pour its first dore bars. The Company intends to continue to use lower grade ore to optimize recovery efficiency and fine tune the various mill components. Higher grade ore will be introduced into the system once the mill is operating at higher rates of recovery. To date there have been no major setbacks and all components are operating within expected parameters.

Below is a photo of the first band of silver coming off the shaker table. The silver is visible on the left side of the photo. The secondary concentrate line is a silver/copper blend which will be bagged and sold. The initial concentrate and dore should be sold to various refineries, whose apparent demand should account for SBMI's entire silver and copper production over the coming weeks.

A video of the shaker table operating can be found at the Company's website, www.silverbulletmines.com.

The Buckeye Silver Mine is the source of the bulk sample ore for the mill. Both the mill and the Buckeye Mine are 100% controlled by SBMI. At the Buckeye, the field team is currently extracting ore from a vein at a location where it is approximately 12 feet wide. SBMI's target is to have at least one month (5,000 tonnes) of raw ore available to the mill at all times, meaning management expects ore to be continually shipped from the Buckeye to the mill on a regular schedule.

Over the coming weeks management expects a steady stream of announcements as material milestones are met.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp.’s Successful Commissioning of its Silver Pilot Plant

 

July 5, 2022 – Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF)  (“SBMI” or “the Company”) announces it has successfully completed commissioning of its wholly owned 125 MTPD state of the art mill near Globe, Arizona. This is the latest major achievement in progressing towards bulk sampling and silver production.

Despite minor delays caused by COVID-19, the commissioning was successfully completed on July 3, 2022. Over the past few weeks all equipment at the mill was test run and synchronized for continuity. No material defects or deficiencies were detected.

“In September of 2021 this was an empty field,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “Now this field hosts a fully functional silver processing facility, ready to start processing a bulk sample of ore from our Buckeye Silver Mine. This could not have been achieved without the incredible skill and dedication of the technical team in Arizona.”

SBMI has commenced crushing ore through the crushing circuit (see video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16ft1Dm-LMI) and is filling the fine ore bin. The photo on the left below shows coarse ore from the Company’s local Buckeye Silver Mine and the photo on the right shows crushed ore in the fine ore bin. The cone crusher and jaw crusher successfully crushed the ore to less than ½ inch in diameter, which is ideal feed for the ball mill.

Press Release 1.jpg
Press release 2.jpg

The next step on the path to producing concentrate and dore bars is to start running the fine ore through the grinding and gravity circuit. This will require a ramp-up period until all equipment is running at maximum efficiency.

Samples are being sent to multiple companies which have expressed an interest in buying SBMI’s concentrate and dore.

This is yet another giant leap forward for the Company. SBMI is on the cusp of producing both silver and copper and generating cash flow which will enable it to continue to execute on its business plan.

Commissioning of Silver Bullet Mines Corp.'s Mill Has Begun

 

Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 9, 2022) - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) ("SBMI" or "the Company") announces it has commenced commissioning of its wholly owned 125 MTPD state of the art mill located near Globe, Arizona. This is the next step to silver production.

"Commissioning is the culmination of much planning and hard work," said A. John Carter, SBMI's CEO. "The field team overcame global supply chain issues to create a functioning 125 MTPD mill, in a location that was an empty field only last September. We are looking forward to processing ore as quickly as possible."

127116_fcd72cd6d43ca802_001full.jpg

Water running through piping as part of start of mill commissioning.

Commissioning will take place over the next few weeks and will include the following steps:

  • water will be run through the mill to check for leaks;

  • each motor will be test run individually and sequentially;

  • each piece of equipment will be test run individually and sequentially to confirm technical matters such as the alignment of gears, bearing temperatures, and clearances;

  • the conveyors will be tracked for speed and consistency;

  • the crushers will be adjusted to proper settings as dictated by the conveyors;

  • the ball charge will then be put in the mill, meaning the steel balls will be inserted into the ball mill in anticipation of feedstock;

  • once all the equipment is calibrated, the mill will again be wet run with water to insure pumps and piping are correct; and

  • the installation of ancillary equipment as needed will follow.

 

SBMI has contracted Sepro Mineral Systems Corp., the manufacturer of the Falcon Concentrators, to provide a start-up technical team to train SBMI's experienced mill crew, to insure optimum efficiency of each piece of the mill and the mill overall. The third-party electrical engineers will have at least one person on-site during start-up as well.

When the overall mill has been confirmed to be operating properly, test feed material will be added. As previously disclosed the Company has stockpiled at the millsite some lower grade ore from the Buckeye Silver Mine to serve as test feed. This will allow SBMI to fine tune the mill while minimizing the risk of losing valuable metals to tailings.

It is anticipated the entire commissioning process will take a few weeks, following which processing of the higher grade material can begin.

SBMI will provide further updates as it progresses through the commissioning process.

Near-Term Production at Washington Silver Mine in Idaho

 

May 5, 2022 – Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI and OTCQB:SBMCF)  (“SBMI” or “the Company”) is pleased to provide an update on operations at its 100%-owned Washington Mine in Idaho. This mine is on patented lands.

“We are pleased to be back at the Washington Mine and moving forward to production,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “The plan is to access the ore zone in June, to commence production in July, and to continue to work through the winter of 22-23.” SBMI is in discussions with an experienced contract miner to commence such work as soon as reasonably possible, subject to a due diligence site visit.

The Washington Mine first saw production in the late 1800's with an average gold grade of one ounce per ton. It again produced gold in the 1930's during which time the then-owner lacked the process capability needed to produce silver, so a decision was made to block out the silver mineralization with the intention of returning at a future date to extract it. To the best of SBMI’s knowledge, the blocked-out volume remains in situ. A historical report indicates the blocked-out volume contains an estimated 3 million ounces of silver with a grade of 30 to 90 ounces per ton and 15,000 ounces of gold at 0.3 ounces per ton. (Source, “Geological Evaluation”, Roger G. Stoker, P.G. and Ryne C. Stoker, Student Geologist, Energy Services Inc., December, 1981.)

Stoker also indicated the location of the “Berger Vein”, described as a “gold ore shoot 25 feet wide, 135 feet long, and unknown depth.” Average grades were given as 0.3 oz/ton gold with unknown silver content. Additional notes in Stoker suggest that the Berger Vein was intersected in drifting at the 400-foot level.

The references above to data and observations derived from work not carried out by SBMI are of historical nature only and cannot be relied upon at this time. SBMI does not know the methods by which such work was carried out, or whether all or part of it was under the supervision of a Qualified Person, as that term is defined in NI43-101. SBMI refers to such data and observations to inform its knowledge of the area.

Based in part on the information from Stoker, SBMI took a bulk sample from the Washington Mine, the results of which were disclosed on January 18, 2022. That bulk sample returned 55.5 ounces silver per ton. It is the Company’s intention to exploit that mineralization while developing other vein faces.

To that end the Company’s onsite contractor has cleared small trees that had fallen over the winter, has upgraded the road, and with snowmelt, has cleared access to the main portal.

SBMI has also contracted a portable sawmill to be on site in the near future to start cutting timber for the underground workings. There will be cost-savings as SBMI owns the timber rights at the Washington Mine, meaning SBMI can provide most of the required timber. The Company is also installing a water supply and equipment container.

It is intended that SBMI meet the contract miner at the Washington Mine in the next few weeks for a due diligence visit.

 

Some of the items involved in having the contract miner begin removing mineralized material are:

  • Road upgrade permit has been received and the work completed;

  • Mine ID has been applied for and received;

  • A ventilation plan is in progress and should be completed in next few weeks;

  • MSHA approval should be received shortly;

  • Contract negotiations are underway with a Mine Rescue contractor; and

  • Metallurgical testing is ongoing at Montana Technical University with results anticipated in the next few weeks.

 

It is anticipated the contract miner will take an initial bulk sample of 1500 to 3000 tons in July, for processing at a local mill. Upon completion of the processing of the bulk sample, SBMI intends to start underground development, targeting the parallel zone and the Berger Vein.

All the above items are being completed under the on-site supervision of Mr. Nick Barr, geologist.

The Company is also planning a surface exploration program at the Washington Mine this summer to further delineate the parallel structures discovered during last year’s field program.

Access to the property can be maintained through the winter as SBMI has contracted a local service provider who has the equipment needed to keep the road open. Decisions on the scope of winter work underground will be determined after the Company receives the results of the July bulk sample.

 

In Arizona at the Buckeye Silver Mine, work continues to complete the 125t/day mill. Wiring the Motor Control Centre to the various parts of the ball mill has begun. The estimated timeline for completion is roughly four weeks, although that is largely out of SBMI’s control. There continues to be some supply chain risk and pricing risk as to when all equipment will be ready and on-site, although SBMI believes it has taken all necessary steps to reduce such risks.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Invited Back to Emerging Growth Conference and Update on Mill in Arizona

 

Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 25, 2022) - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) ("SBMI" or "the Company") is pleased to provide the following update on the current status of operations at its 100%-owned mill near Globe, Arizona.

All major components are in place at the mill and the technical team is completing the installation of smaller components while preparing for the installation of the electrical system. The timing of starting of the electrical work was dependent upon the timing of delivery of the third shipping container to the millsite and the installation of the equipment including the Motor Control Centre ("MCC"). The installation of those items was a pragmatic pre-condition to SBMI applying for the requisite permits.

Once those items were installed, SBMI applied for and received the necessary permits. With those permits in hand the electrical contractor is currently assembling the panels and switchgear at its plant mill. SBMI anticipates that task should be completed in the next three weeks. Cable trays on the mill and MCC are installed in anticipation of the electrical team being on-site. As an ESG-committed company SBMI is ensuring all installations are carried out safely, to code, and with minimal impact on the environment.

"As much as we'd like to, we are unable to give with precision an exact date upon which the mill will be turning, but we are extremely close to being able to process ore from the Buckeye Silver Mine," said A. John Carter, SBMI's CEO. "The field team has been doing tremendous work to get us here. We continue to stockpile ore at the millsite in anticipation of mill completion."

SBMI also announces that it has been invited to present again at the Emerging Growth Conference on Wednesday, April 27 at 12:30 pm EST.

SBMI first presented at the Emerging Growth Conference in December, 2021, just after SBMI's common shares were listed on the TSX Venture Exchange. Now that SBMI's shares also trade through the OTCQB, it seemed appropriate to re-visit this conference to update attendees on SBMI's progress at its silver mines in Arizona and Idaho.

This will again be a real-time, interactive event will give existing shareholders and the investment community the opportunity to interact with Mr. Peter M. Clausi, SBMI's VP, Capital Markets, in real time. Mr. Clausi will provide a general overview of SBMI, its capital structure, its achievements in the field, its ESG successes, and its plans for the future. The floor will then be open for questions.

Silver Bullet Mines Provides Assay Results from the Buckeye Mine Including a Footwall Assay of 706.6 Ounces per Ton Silver

 

Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 4, 2022) - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) ("SBMI" or "the Company") is pleased to provide the following report on its continuous assay program at its Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona.

This press release reports the recent assay results from 44 samples. The assays were processed at SBMI's non-ISO in-house assay facility in Arizona under the supervision of Robert Budd, a metallurgical engineer whose career in metallurgy began in 1972, and Vic Powers, a certified Arizona assayer. The assays include samples from four underground areas of the Buckeye Mine, these being: 1) the footwall of the vein; 2) the recently announced Treasure Room stope; 3) behind the Treasure Room stope; and 4) the historical tailings.

Five samples, taken from the footwall of the vein from an area covering approximately 14 to 18 inches in width, provided the following returns (in ounces of silver per ton or oz/t as well as grams per tonne or g/t):

  • 341.8 oz/t or 11,718.95 g/t;

  • 336.2 oz/t or 11,152.95 g/t;

  • 674.0 oz/t or 23,108.76 g/t;

  • 706.6 oz/t or 24,226.49 g/t; and

  • 124.4 oz/t or 4,265.18 g/t;

The average of the remaining 39 samples (including 6 samples of 0.0 oz/t) is as follows:

  • Treasure Room stope assays (27 samples) - 20.17 oz/t or 691.56 g/t silver

  • Assays behind the Treasure Room stope (7 samples) - 37.08 oz/t or 1,271.32 g/t silver

  • Assays from the Treasure Room's historical tailings (5 samples) - 17.9 oz/t or 613.72 g/t silver.

cd6817a00f12af34b2c3ab022ccafc8a-505px.webp

The overall average for all the 39 above samples is 22.91 oz/t or 785.63 g/t silver. The high-grade values from the footwall were not included in the above overall average.

"These are exciting numbers and they provide us with a great deal of confidence in our internal grade estimates as we move to production", said A. John Carter, SBMI's CEO. "As any responsible producer would, we will continuously sample and assay as we proceed."

Readers are cautioned that the 44 samples are selective grab samples and may not be representative of all the material at the Buckeye Silver Mine. The reader is further advised that these preliminary assay values do not represent a reserve or resource at this time. While significant silver values have been encountered, the quantity, grade, or metal or mineral content of a deposit has not been categorized as an inferred mineral resource, an indicated mineral resource, a measured mineral resource, a probable mineral resource, reserve or a proven mineral reserve.

As it moves into production, SBMI will assay on a daily basis to better enable it to determine the production head grade of the feed material. SBMI does not intend to report all assays taken daily.

In light of the high-grade values in the assays, the Company has engaged Montana Technical University to help SBMI optimize an efficient recovery process flow sheet. The capital expenditures being made to the mill, funded by the recently-completed oversubscribed financing, will also assist in improving recoveries.

The mill, on permitted patented lands owned by SBMI, is close to completion. Electrical, piping and small fabrication items remain to be completed before commencement of an anticipated two-week trial period. During this two-week trial period SBMI will move roughly 1,500 tons of the lower-grade ore to the mill.

SBMI will move its two boom jumbo and mucker to the Buckeye Silver Mine in anticipation of completion of ongoing development and commencement of mining.

QA/QC

No standards, duplicates or blanks were used or the above 44 samples although management intends to include such checks in future assay programs. Management also intends occasionally send samples to an ISO-certified third party lab for confirmation of SBMI's owns lab equipment and processes.

The samples analyzed by SBMI at its facility near Globe, Arizona were processed through the Lab Jaw Crusher, Lab Hammer Mill and Splitter Box into an aliquot. Most of the pulverized aliquot was mixed with a flux and flour combination and melted in a crucible at 1,850 degree Fahrenheit, with the remainder being logged and archived. Upon cooling, the poured melt was in the form of a metal button and slag, following which a bone ash cupel was utilized to eliminate the lead in the button to form a bead. The bead was then weighed, following which a solution of 6 to 1 distilled water to nitric acid was utilized to dissolve the silver in the bead at approximately 175 degrees Fahrenheit. A much more detailed description of the process and a picture of the assay lab can be found at https://www.silverbulletmines.com/qaqcassaylab.

The Qualified Person for this press release is Mr. Robert G. Komarechka, P.Geo., an independent consultant, who has reviewed and verified SBMI's work referred to herein. Mr. Robert G. Komarechka, P.Geo. co-authored the NI43-101 compliant report on this property, delivered to the Company in January, 2021.

Finally, due to a typo, the Company under-reported the number of broker warrants issued as part of its recent financing. The correct number is 179,130.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. New Auditors and Extension of Oversubscribed Financing

March 25, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario –Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces an extension to close on the final tranche of its previously announced financing (the “Financing”). The Company has closed on two tranches already in the Financing and has outstanding subscription agreements in hand. The total amount when adding the cash from those two tranches and the outstanding subscription agreements is $2,518,903.

The TSX Venture Exchange has granted an extension to April 1, 2022 to allow SBMI to physically gather all payments for its outstanding subscription agreements. This is purely a logistical issue. There will be no new subscription agreements in the Financing.

“We thank the shareholders for their continued faith in our business plan and in our ability to execute on it,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “The funds raised in this financing have been budgeted to put the Buckeye Mine into production, to complete our mill, and to advance the Washington Mine in Idaho in the near-term to where it can be ready for mineral extraction.”

The oversubscribed total represents 6,297,258 Units, with each Unit priced at $0.40 (forty cents). Each Unit consists of one common share and one full 60-cent (sixty cent) warrant with a 24-month term, with each such warrant being exercisable into a common share (the “Financing”). There is no acceleration clause on such warrants.

The Financing had an original minimum-maximum of $500,000 and $2,000,000 respectively. The Financing was oversubscribed by more than 25% of the original maximum.

In connection with the Financing a total of 79,130 broker warrants were issued as referral fees to registrants, with such warrants having the same characteristics as those issued in the Financing. A total of $73,352 was also paid in cash as referral fees.

The strength of the Financing enables SBMI to implement additions to its mill in Arizona to increase recoverability. The modular nature of the mill allows such additions to be made relatively quickly. Management is of the opinion that the positive results of such improvements justify a minor delay to the start of processing material from the Buckeye Mine.

SBMI also announces that Grant Thornton LLP (the “Successor Auditor”) have been appointed as the company’s new auditor effective March 22, 2022, replacing McGovern Hurley LLP, (the “Former Auditor”).

Reporting notices prepared in accordance with National Instrument 51-102 (“NI 51-102”) by the Former Auditor, the Successor Auditor and the Company will be filed on SEDAR.

There are no disagreements or consultations (as those terms are defined in NI 51-102) in connection with the change of auditor nor have there been any reservations or modifications in the Former Auditor’s reports on the Company’s financial statements relating to the period during which it was auditor.

No “reportable event” as defined in NI 51-102, has occurred in connection with the audit of the most recently completed fiscal year of the Company, nor any period from the most recently completed fiscal years of the Company for which McGovern Hurley LLP issued an audit report and the date of the Notice.

The termination of McGovern Hurley LLP, and appointment of Grant Thornton LLP, as auditor of the Company were considered and approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.

Finally, SBMI announces the resignation of Ronald Wortel from his officer position with the Company. He remains a member of the board of directors.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. to Commence Mining at its Wholly- Owned Washington Mine in Idaho

March 15, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario –Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces it has made a production decision for its Washington Mine on patented land in Idaho. Upon review of the historical records, SBMI’s 2021 and 2022 field programs, the proposed budget, the success of the financing announced February 9 of this year, the existing infrastructure and the current data including SBMI’s blended bulk sample that yielded 55.5 ounces silver per tonne, the board has decided to initiate mining at the Washington Mine.

It is the Company’s plan to widen the existing adit, make the area safe for work, proceed to the historical workings and extract mineralized material. To that end SBMI is in discussions with an experienced contract miner to commence such work as soon as reasonably possible, subject to a due diligence site visit.

This part of the Washington Mine was last mined in the 1980’s when a bulk sample was removed by the then-owner and processed by Hecla Mining. That bulk sample resulted in a grade of 44 ounces silver per tonne and 10 grams of gold per tonne. (All historical references pre-date NI43-101 and the work involved was not carried out by SBMI. SBMI does not know what processes were followed for any such work or whether the work was carried out under the supervision of a Qualified Person. Such historical references cannot be relied upon until further work is carried out.)

SBMI Press release Mar. 15, 2022.jpg

Historical Adit at the Washington Mine in Idaho

The Washington Mine overall first saw production in the late 1800's with an average gold grade of one ounce per ton. It again produced gold in the 1930's during which time the then-owner lacked the process capability needed to produce silver, so a decision was then made to block out the silver mineralization with the intention of returning at a future date to extract it. To the best of SBMI’s knowledge, the blocked-out volume remains in situ. A historical report indicates the blocked-out volume contains an estimated 3 million ounces of silver with a grade of 30 to 90 ounces per ton and 15,000 ounces of gold at 0.3 ounces per ton. (Source, “Geological Evaluation”, Roger G. Stoker, P.G. and Ryne C. Stoker, Student Geologist, Energy Services Inc., December, 1981.)

The historical records and existing infrastructure suggest SBMI should be able to in the short-term extract a bulk sample of 1,500 to 3,000 tonnes of mineralized material from that blocked-out volume. After a brief pause to assess the results of the bulk sample and to inspect more of the existing infrastructure, the Company would continue extracting material from this part of the mine and also develop a ramp to the high-grade parallel structure identified in last year’s field program. (see press release of December 15, 2021).

The Company is waiting on metallurgical testing results from Montana Technical University to enable SBMI to create an appropriate flowsheet and recovery parameters, following which the Company intends to reach terms with a third-party mill in Idaho. The resulting processed silver and other materials will be sold to local smelters at spot prices. The Company is also in discussions with two commodity brokers interested in buying the expected concentrate. There is a risk the Company will not be able to reach agreement with any of these counter-parties, including the contract miner.

In anticipation of start-up the Company has received its mine ID number and is completing the MSHA application. Other permitting is limited as the Washington Mine is on patented land.

“These are very exciting times for Silver Bullet Mines as we rapidly approach commencement of mining operations at the Buckeye Mine in Arizona and move simultaneously to mining in Idaho,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “Revenue generated from both mines can fund exploration programs to attack the past-producing McMorris Mine, increase production capacity at our 100%-owned modular mill, and explore the potential for a copper porphyry at our Black Diamond Property.”

The financing announced February 9, 2022 has closed two tranches totalling $1,574,075. There will be at least one more closing before March 26, 2022. This successful financing means SBMI is well funded to finance the opening of both the Buckeye and Washington Mines.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Second Tranche of Successful Financing

Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 11, 2022) - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) ('SBMI' or 'the Company') announces it today has closed on $810,075 in its previously announced financing, bringing the total raised to date to $1,574,075.

This tranche represents 2,205,188 Units, with each Unit priced at $0.40 (forty cents). Each Unit consists of one common share and one full 60-cent (sixty cent) warrant with a 24-month term, with each such warrant being exercisable into a common share (the "Financing"). There is no acceleration clause on such warrants.

This is the second tranche of Units on which SBMI has closed. The first tranche of $764,000 was announced February 18, 2022. SBMI has further subscription agreements in hand which means SBMI will close on at least one further tranche before March 26, 2022.

These proceeds from the Financing will be used to complete the process of putting the Buckeye Silver Mine into pilot production in March, 2022, to advance work at the past-producing silver and gold Washington Mine in Idaho, and for working capital.

"This financing is a success for the company and the shareholders," said A. John Carter, SBMI's CEO. "Our original minimum target was $500,000 and the investors blew that number away. The funds raised in this financing have been budgeted to be more than enough to put the Buckeye Mine into production, to complete our mill, and to advance the Washington Mine to where it can be ready for mineral extraction."

Referral fees may be paid to arm's length persons in connection with the issuance of the Units. Other than the subscription agreement, there will be no further offering material provided to Existing Security Holders or others related to Financing. The subscription agreement is available at the Company's website https://www.silverbulletmines.com/technical-corporatedocuments.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Is First Mining Company in the Metaverse

Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 10, 2022) - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) ('SBMI' or 'the Company') announces its presence in the Metaverse, allowing users to learn about SBMI while enjoying a rich fun immersive experience. To the best of its research, SBMI is the first mining company to be there.

"We are always looking for ways to enrich our communications with the shareholders," said A. John Carter, SBMI's CEO. "Being first in the metaverse allows us to engage differently with a larger demographic."

SBMI's three worlds can be found here:

https://www.oculus.com/vr/4926980984085649/

https://www.oculus.com/vr/4904122299682803/

https://www.oculus.com/vr/4865898440129797/

In October 2021, Facebook Inc. changed its name to Meta, to reflect its commitment to this environment. Quoting from Meta's October 28, 2021 press release, "Meta builds technologies that help people connect, find communities, and grow businesses. When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving beyond 2D screens toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology."

 

To access the metaverse a user must currently use smart glasses or a headset and hand controls to walk, pick up things, push buttons and carry out other virtual actions. Facebook's parent company, Meta, has advised that it intends to soon release a version of its world-building software that will not require a headset or smart glasses. This will expand the metaverse's reach, and SBMI's worlds, to all internet users around the globe.

SBMI's worlds were designed and built by Shaxon Enterprises Inc. of Burlington, Ontario. According to Donald Shaxon, CEO, "I'm impressed with SBMI's forward thinking. They have staked an early claim to the next real means of communication. To me, a parallel can be drawn to the mid-1990s after HTML was formally published and Marc Andreeson then used it to co-create Mosaic, the first user-friendly web browser. Then the web exploded. That's where we are in the metaverse."

It was SBMI's intention that its worlds be released in conjunction with the world-famous PDAC (aka "The Mining Show") in early March, 2022. However, that conference has been moved to June, 2022 due to health and safety protocols. SBMI has decided to go live with its worlds now instead of waiting.

As SBMI's advances its mining projects, its worlds will be updated to integrate those advances.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Breaks into the Treasure Room and Reports Assay Results

 

March 1, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario –Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) provides an update on the timetable for production at its Buckeye Silver Mine near Globe, Arizona and reports assay results.

SBMI’s initial target at the Buckeye has been the high-grade polymetallic drift identified in 1976 by K.C. Delise, in a Mine Shaft Survey dated October 23, 1976 prepared by him for International Resources and Minerals Development Company. He identified this zone as extending approximately 500 feet along strike. He called this area the “Treasure Room”.

SBMI is pleased to announce its field team has blasted through into the Treasure Room, in exactly the location mapped by Mr. Delise. A video of the Treasure Room was taken by SBMI’s field team and can be seen at www.silverbulletmines.com.

“The Treasure Room is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen”, said Ron Murphy, SBMI’s VP, Mining. “I’m not exaggerating. This is where prior mining in 1873 ended when a cave-in took place. Now, with us having blasted in, I can see multiple adits and drifts like a honeycomb.”

The Treasure Room cannot be entered and no samples from the visible veins can be taken until timbering and other structural safety measures are taken. The Company estimates that will take three weeks to complete this work.

Although the Treasure Room itself cannot be entered at this time, samples were taken from what appears to be waste rock on the floor of the Treasure Room near the entranceway. Because SBMI has its own assay lab, those samples were run and returned values within 24 hours.

 

SBMI reports on those assay results as follows:

Chart March 1, 2022.jpg

Readers are cautioned the sampling results presented above are based on in-house analysis and are not yet verified by a third party independent and accredited laboratory. The Company intends to send samples from the mineralized vein material to such a laboratory as the workings are developed to confirm and verify the grades as the development is advanced. These results will be reported when available. These results are thus preliminary in nature and are used by management to direct its ongoing exploration and development programs at the Buckeye Mine.

 

“These results are both comforting and highly encouraging,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “They show the accuracy of the historical record and they indicate this is a richly mineralized zone. This is how real value is created for the shareholders.”

As SBMI reported on January 27, 2022, Mr. Delise’s assays from this same area dating from 1976 and 1977 returned spectacularly high values for gold, silver and copper. The highest value for gold was 4.8 oz/ton, for silver was 8,970 oz/ton, and for copper was 30.7%.

In addition to the Treasure Room samples, SBMI’s assay lab is currently processing samples taken from the material stockpiled by SBMI at the millsite. It is expected these samples will be low grade. These assay results will be very important to SBMI because this material will be the initial mill feed. Having the assay results in hand will enable SBMI to calculate potential recovery rates in anticipation of being in continuous pilot plant production with higher-grade material.

At the mill site, assembly and installation continue. Over the past week, the field team installed the grizzly, aligned the ball mill with the feed chute, finetuned the ball mill gear and pinion for maximum efficiency, and built a ramp and a retaining wall. Pictures of the assembly process are available at the Company’s website www.silverbulletmines.com and in its Twitter feed @BulletMines.

Management believes the mill will be ready for the initial test feed within four weeks, to be followed by a two-week test period. It is during this period that the low-grade material referred to above will be processed. Assuming no adverse results, the mill will then be put into production at full capacity, which is nameplated for 125 tonnes per day.

QA/QC at SBMI’s Facility

The samples analyzed by SBMI at its facility near Globe, Arizona were processed through the Lab Jaw Crusher, Lab Hammer Mill and Splitter Box into an aliquot. Most of the pulverized aliquot was mixed with a flux and flour combination and melted in a crucible at 1,850 degrees Fahrenheit, with the remainder being logged and archived. Upon cooling, the poured melt was in the form of a metal button and slag, following which a bone ash cupel was utilized to eliminate the lead in the button to form a bead.  The bead was then weighed, following which a solution of 6 to 1 distilled water to nitric acid was utilized to dissolve the silver in the bead at approximately 175 degrees Fahrenheit. A much more detailed description of the process and a picture of the assay lab can be found at https://www.silverbulletmines.com/qaqcassaylab. All sample pulps are retained in secured storage for future independent verification of the Company’s sampling and analysis procedures.

The Qualified Person for this press release is Mr. Ron Wortel, P.Eng., who oversaw all of SBMI’s work referred to herein. Mr. Wortel is also President and a director of the Company.

SILVER BULLET MINES CORP. SUCCESSFUL FINANCING - Closing First Tranche - $764,000

 

February 22, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario –Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces it has closed on $764,000, in its previously announced financing. This represents 1,910,000 Units, with each Unit priced at $0.40 (forty cents). Each Unit consists of one common share and one full 60-cent (sixty cent) warrant with a 24-month term, with each such warrant being exercisable into a common share (the “Financing”). There is no acceleration clause on such warrants. That pricing is at a 33% premium to the previous round of financing.

This is the first tranche of Units on which SBMI has closed. SBMI has subscription agreements in hand totalling roughly a further $500,000, which means SBMI will continue to close on further tranches over the next while as it collects funds.

These funds will be used to complete the process of putting the Buckeye Silver Mine into pilot production in March, 2022, to advance metallurgic work at the past-producing silver and gold Washington Mine in Idaho, and for working capital.

“What’s fascinating to me is the continued strong shareholder support,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “We are particularly pleased with the high percentage of subscribers in this financing who are already shareholders. Their repeat participation indicates a strong endorsement of SBMI’s business plan and our execution upon it. Because we took a non-traditional route, we remain on path to be in pilot production of silver this quarter.”

Referral fees may be paid to arm’s length persons in connection with the issuance of the Units. Other than the subscription agreement, there will be no further offering material provided to Existing Security Holders or others related to Financing. The subscription agreement is available at the Company’s website https://www.silverbulletmines.com/technical-corporatedocuments.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Advances Metallurgy in Idaho and Breaks into Target Zone in Arizona

 

February 14, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario –Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces significant achievements related to the Washington Mine in Idaho and the Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona.

In Idaho, the Company has engaged the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (“CAMP”) of Montana Technical University, part of Montana University, to provide it with mineralogy, gravity, and flotation testwork. In Arizona, the field team has broken into what it believes to be the higher-grade mineralized zone, which appears to be located exactly where predicted by the historical records and SBMI’s own work.

Idaho and CAMP

SBMI purchased the past-producing Washington Mine on patented lands in Idaho in December, 2020. As reported on January 18, 2022, assay results from a blended bulk sample at the Washington Mine site averaged 55.5 ounces of silver per tonne. Values reported in that press release ran as high as 180 ounces silver per tonne and 18 grams of gold per tonne. Historical records and SBMI’s field work lead management to believe the Washington Mine is capable of near-term revenue generation.

As said by Mr. A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO, “We knew from historical records the Washington Mine was going to be good. We didn’t know it would be this good. We have to invest into the property to get it ready for mining.”

To advance its knowledge of the Washington Mine, SBMI has entered into an agreement with CAMP. Established in 1989, CAMP is a Montana University System designated Center of Excellence in Research and Education, located on the campus of Montana Technological University. CAMP's activities involve three components, namely, an analytical testing laboratory, a materials testing laboratory, and research program management. Included in the services CAMP will provide to SBMI are the following:

  • Automated Mineralogy by SEM and EDS utilizing TESCAN’s Integrated Mineral Analysis (TIMA) software include model mineralogy liberation and associations up to 5 size fractions;

  • XRD: Mineralogy by X-Ray Diffraction;

  • Sample prep to 95% passing ¼ inch and rotary split;

  • Grind determinations to establish a grind curve;

  • Falcon evaluation and Table evaluations; and

  • Flotation evaluations, fire assay, acid digestion and ICP-OES.

 

SBMI will use CAMP’s results to design a flowsheet intended to maximize the recoveries at the Washington Mine in Idaho and to reduce overall milling costs for the Washington Mine ore. This relationship with CAMP is made possible at this time by the Company currently carrying out a financing to buttress its treasury (press release of February 9, 2022).

The current plan, depending upon the quantum raised in the current ongoing financing and the results from CAMP’s tests, is to be on site at the Washington Mine by the end of March, 2022 and to then immediately commence collecting mineralized material. That material will come from surface, having been hauled to surface by prior owners who were seeking gold, and from development of the historical underground workings. The goal is to be generating revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022. This is another example of SBMI thinking outside the box by establishing a cash flow model to fund future operations, reduce dilution, and create value for its shareholders.

Target Zone in Arizona

The field team in Arizona last week blasted into what is believed to be the higher-grade silver mineralized zone at the Buckeye Silver Mine. As previously disclosed SBMI’s target is the high-grade silver zone identified in 1976 by K.C. Delise, an Arizona geologist, in a report titled Surface/Underground Mapping and Sampling. In his report he mapped and identified this zone as extending approximately 500 feet along strike.

Locating what is believed to be the higher-grade silver zone is a major development as:

  1. It should provide SBMI’s mill with higher-grade material, which can be blended with lower-grade material to increase the mill’s operating efficiencies;

  2. It validates the Company’s mine plan for the Buckeye; and

  3. The mineralized zone appears to be located exactly where predicted by SBMI’s field team and by Mr. Delise. This gives a very high level of confidence as to future decisions at the Buckeye and at SBMI’s other past-producing mines.

 

“This is old school mining,” said Mr. Carter. “We know where the mineralization is, so we’re going to spend shareholder money making money.”

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Announces Financing With 2 Lead Orders

 

February 9, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces its intention to carry out an accretive non-brokered financing of Units. Each Unit will be priced at $0.40 (forty cents) per Unit and will comprise of one common share and one full 60-cent (sixty cent) warrant with a 24-month term, with each such warrant being exercisable into a common share (the “Financing”). Readers are reminded the Qualifying Transaction that resulted in SBMI being a reporting issuer in December, 2021 was carried out at $0.30 per share.

“As we’ve disclosed many times, the global supply chain has been problematic for us,” said Mr. A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “Unavoidable third-party delays, especially through the port of Long Beach, caused the Company to consume working capital that otherwise would not have been consumed. Further, with the passage of time, we have experienced pandemic-related increases in the cost of parts, logistics, fuel and supplies. All of this has put stress on the treasury. While SBMI continues to have considerable cash in its account, effecting a financing now is a combination of insurance and ensuring SBMI can execute on its revised 2022 plans in both Arizona and better-than-expected Idaho. It’s the responsible thing to do.”

The minimum and maximum gross proceeds from the Financing will be $500,000 (five hundred thousand dollars) and $2,000,000 (two million dollars), respectively. The minimum and maximum number of Units to issue as a result of the Financing are 1,250,000 and 5,000,000, respectively. Units will be allocated on a first come, first served basis although SBMI retains the right to accept or reject subscription agreements in its sole discretion.

SBMI has two lead orders on the Financing, one for CDN$180,000 and the other for USD$200,000, from two existing shareholders who are accredited investors, who each committed to participating in the Financing without knowing its terms. Other existing shareholders have also expressed an interest in participating in the Financing without knowing its terms.

Net proceeds from the Financing, assuming the minimum, will be used to fund operations in Arizona until the Buckeye Silver Mine begins generating revenue, most likely in May, 2022 (see SBMI press release dated February 7, 2022 for details on the timing of revenue generation). Net proceeds from the Financing, assuming the maximum, will be used to fund and expand operations in Arizona until the Buckeye Silver Mine begins generating revenue (up to approximately $800,000), to fund development of the Washington Mine in Idaho (up to approximately $500,000), and to fund exploration and development of the McMorris Mine in Arizona (up to approximately $500,000). In either case some of the proceeds will fund costs related to the Financing, working capital and overhead. The amount of costs related to the Financing will vary depending upon the amount paid as referral fees, which is unknown as this time.

SBMI purchased the Washington Mine in Idaho in December, 2020. The Company expected to warehouse that property until after the Buckeye Silver Mine began generating revenue so minimal allocation was made for it in SBMI’s 2021 or 2022 budget. However, preliminary work at the Washington Mine revealed it could be capable of near-term revenue generation, resulting in the January 18, 2022 press release disclosing the assay results from a blended bulk sample of 55.5 oz/t silver. Management wants to accelerate work at the Washington Mine which will require some of the capital being raised in the Financing.

Customary prospectus exemptions will be relied upon for the Financing, including the “Accredited Investor” exemption and the “Distributions to Existing Security Holders” exemption pursuant to section 2.9 of Ontario Securities Commission Rule 45-501 (the ‘Existing Securityholder Exemption’). Management believes this to be a democratic means of effecting the Financing.

Investors subscribing for Units under the Existing Securityholder Exemption must meet certain conditions set out in Rule 45-501. The Company has set Monday, February 7, 2022 as the record date. Subscribers purchasing Units under the Existing Shareholder Exemption will need to represent in writing that they meet certain requirements of the Existing Shareholder Exemption, including that they were, on such record date, a common shareholder of the Company and still are a shareholder as at the closing date. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Shareholder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 in the 12-month period immediately preceding the closing of the Financing, unless that subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment. There is no minimum subscription amount. Any SBMI shareholder can subscribe, subject to the conditions above and in the subscription agreement.

Referral fees may be paid to arm’s length persons in connection with the issuance of the Units. Other than the subscription agreement, there will be no further offering material provided to Existing Security Holders or others related to Financing. The subscription agreement is available at the Company’s website https://www.silverbulletmines.com/technical-corporatedocuments. The Financing is subject to regulatory approval.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Sets Timetable for Silver Production

 

February 7, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces the arrival of its third and final shipping container at its millsite near Globe, Arizona.

The container finally cleared through the port of Long Beach and its contents were delivered to the millsite this past weekend. This container holds the motor and drive train for the ball mill, which are the final major components required to complete construction. The Company will now be able to locally acquire further minor parts as needed as Globe is a ‘mining town’ home to various mining supply stores.

Feb 7, - picture - press release.jpg

The picture above is a recent one from the millsite showing one of the four conveyors being installed. The actual ball mill is the large steel object to the middle left.

“This is a tremendously important milestone for the shareholders,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “The delivery of the motor and drive train was the only major factor beyond our control. It’s been painful to see costs increase while we had to wait for these items. Now, it should take between 30 and 40 days to complete construction, following which the field team will run roughly two weeks’ worth of low-grade material to fine-tune the components. Then we intend to start processing the higher-grade material from our nearby Buckeye Silver Mine.”

In anticipation of the mill’s imminent completion SBMI stockpiled at the millsite mineralized material extracted from the Buckeye Silver Mine. Like any responsible producer SBMI has its own assay lab, at which it will run daily assays for grade control, cost control and immediacy of results.

Once in production SBMI intends to produce silver dore bars, to be sold to a smelter or a commodities trader. SBMI is in discussions with several such groups in anticipation of having saleable product in April, 2022, which means the Company anticipates being in receipt of cash payments soon thereafter. Those cash payments will buttress SBMI’s treasury, which since the start of the pandemic has suffered through escalating costs of shipping, parts, supplies, fuel, services and equipment.

“Getting into production logically leads to risk-mitigating cash flow into the Company,” said Mr. Carter. “Then we can turn our efforts to the Washington Mine in Idaho and the McMorris Mine in Arizona, both former producers. The Washington Mine seems to be even better than we expected, as shown by the recent bulk sample results returning 55.5 oz/t silver.”

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Commences Extraction of Mineralized Material at its Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona

 

January 27, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces it has begun extracting mineralized material from its Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona after taking delivery of its first shipment of blasting powder. SBMI’s intention is to produce an initial total of 10,000 tonnes of mineralized material at a rate of 125 tonnes per day.

SBMI also announces it has been invited by the TMX Group to ring the bell at market open on Monday, January 31st at 9:30 am Eastern Standard Time, a rare honour for a new junior mining company.

Jan 26 - blasting 2.jpg

SBMI’s initial target is the high-grade silver zone identified in 1976 by K.C. Delise, a Registered Geologist, in a report titled Surface/Underground Mapping and Sampling. Accompanying the report was a Mine Shaft Survey dated October 23, 1976 prepared by him for International Resources and Minerals Development Company. In his report he mapped and identified this zone as extending approximately 500 feet along strike.

The Company has found a summary of assay results from 1976 and 1977 from Clarkson Labs of San Diego, CA. SBMI believes these resulted from samples taken by Delise in his 1976 field work at the Buckeye. These assays returned spectacularly high values for gold, silver and copper. The highest value for gold was 4.8 opt, for silver was 8,970 opt, and for copper was 30.7%.

This information is historical in nature and pre-dates NI43-101. SBMI does not know the methods by which such work was carried out, or whether all or part of it was under the supervision of a Qualified Person, as that term is defined in NI43-101. SBMI refers to such data and observations to inform its knowledge of the area.

Nick Barr, one of SBMI’s consulting geologists, carried out his own analysis of Delise’s work in 2015, as part of which he produced notes, sections and longitudinals. He also plotted the 1976 Clarkson Labs assay results noted above onto Mr. Delise’s original Mining Shaft Survey. In addition to Delise’s and other historical records, SBMI is also relying upon these documents created by Mr. Barr as well as his current first-hand experience at the Buckeye.

“This is a significant accomplishment”, said SBMI’s VP Mining, Mr. Ron Murphy. “We have completed the rehabilitation of the underground and have commenced mining as we blast into what we believe to be Delise’s documented high-grade zone. The training, experience and talent of our seasoned mining crew has allowed us to achieve these goals in a short period of time.”

The mineralized material blasted and extracted from the Buckeye will be stockpiled at SBMI’s proximate millsite for eventual processing at SBMI’s gravity pilot plant, which is nearing completion. The Company also plans to run assays in its own assay facility on-site on multiple samples from the mineralized material to determine grades.

As previously disclosed, SBMI’s assay lab on-site in Arizona is managed by Robert Budd, a Metallurgical Process Engineer who began his career in metallurgical engineering in 1972. He has held various positions with various employers including Senior Engineer, Superintendent, Engineer, Technical Assistant, Technician, and Lab Assistant. Most recently, prior to joining SBMI he was involved in designing and creating an internal assay facility in Arizona for Freeport McMorran Inc. Working with Mr. Budd in SBMI’s assay facility is Vic Power, a Registered Professional Assayer for the state of Arizona. Mr. Budd and Mr. Power will ensure all QA/QC practices will be adhered to, including sending samples from each run to an independent accredited lab for corroboration.

It is intended the state-of-the-art gravity pilot plant should be ready to commence the processing of mineralized material in approximately sixty days, depending on the timing of delivery of certain mill items. Such deliveries are beyond SBMI’s control. The progress of both the mine and mill can be followed at www.silverbulletmines.com or on Twitter @bulletmines.

“Having our own assay lab and mill should make us incredibly efficient,” said Mr. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO who also designed the gravity pilot plant. “We will be able to have assay results back in less than a day, which will empower us to select mineralization within our target ranges to process.”

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Assays 55.5 Oz/Ton Silver from a Bulk Sample at its 100%-Owned Washington Mine in Idaho

 

January 18, 2022 - Burlington, Ontario - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV:SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to report excellent assay results from a bulk sample from its Washington Mine in Idaho (the ‘Property’). The assay results from SBMI’s own assay lab on site have been corroborated by a third-party accredited lab.

“The importance of these results cannot be overstated,” said A. John Carter, the Company’s CEO. “These results support three important conclusions. First, they are in line with historical data, which increases our comfort level with using that data for guidance. Second, they show the Property is still mineralized with silver and gold. Third, and I think most importantly, it confirms that QA/QC processes both in our own lab and at the third-party lab return very similar results. This further validates our lab.”

The results are below. Lines 1, 2, 3 and 4 were processed in SBMI’s lab in Arizona. Line 5 was processed by Paragon Geochemical, a third-party lab. These values are in oz/ton silver.

sbmi chart Jan 18, 2022 Cropped_edited_e

Paragon also assayed for gold, which across the four quarters returned 1.82g/t, 2.49g/t, 1.77g/t, and 1.4g/t respectively. SBMI did not assay for gold.

As indicated above the SBMI average across all quarters was 55.5 oz/ton silver. This equates to over 1,902 g/t silver at a conversion rate of 34.285.  SBMI collected the bulk sample from eight locations at the Property. The material from each of the eight locations was blended into an 80-kilogram bulk sample, with the result being crushed and quartered. Five kilograms of material was removed from each quarter and processed by SBMI as sixteen assays in total. Five kilograms of material was removed from each quarter and processed by Paragon as four assays.

The Company intends to send the fourth quarter of the bulk sample for ore characterization and metallurgical testing to Montana Technical University, Centre for Advanced Mineral Processing. The remaining parts of the bulk sample including the pulps and rejects have been retained by SBMI as part of its QA/QC practices.

SBMI’s assay lab on-site in Arizona is managed by Robert Budd, a Metallurgical Process Engineer who began his career in metallurgical engineering in 1972. He has held various positions with various employers including Senior Engineer, Superintendent, Engineer, Technical Assistant, Technician, and Lab Assistant. Most recently, prior to joining SBMI he was involved in designing and creating an internal assay facility in Arizona for Freeport McMorran Inc. He has also been the Chief Metallurgist for Northern Sphere Mining Corporation in Arizona, the Principal Process Specialist for Fluor Canada out of Vancouver, the Senior Metallurgical Engineer for Doe Run Lead, the Project Engineer for the commissioning of a copper concentrator start-up at Oz Minerals’ Prominent Hill Mine in South Australia, Senior Metallurgical Engineer for Cyprus Miami/Phelps Dodge Miami in Arizona, Metallurgical Engineer and Metallurgical Lab Supervisor for Newmont Gold in Nevada, and Chief Metallurgist for Inspiration/Cyprus Miami in Arizona among other positions.

Working with Mr. Budd in SBMI’s assay facility is Vic Power, a Registered Professional Assayer for the state of Arizona.

“We have an extremely high level of confidence in our team and in the accuracy of our assays”, said Mr. Carter. “Today’s results only add to that confidence.” SBMI’s management believes these assays confirm the tenor and range of grades reported historically from the silver veins, but cautions they may not be representative of the average grade of mineralization within the full width or extent of any of the muck piles or mineralized structures present on the Property.

 

The next steps at the Property are to continue sampling, to take the steps necessary to go underground for visual inspection and sampling, and then to take a larger bulk sample. As the Property is on patented lands the process of permitting required to re-open the Washington Mine is more streamlined. SBMI is in discussions with third parties for the purchase of the resulting ore and/or concentrate and has identified potential mill facilities near the Property. SBMI is also considering whether to ship larger samples from the Washington Mine to SBMI’s assay facility in Arizona.

Meanwhile, in Arizona, SBMI continues to advance work at the mill site and mine site at its massive Black Diamond property, which hosts among others the Buckeye Silver Mine. SBMI has been advised it has been moved up the list for the unloading of its shipping container at Long Beach, but cannot provide a firm date upon which such unloading will take place. Assuming it takes place in the next two weeks, SBMI is still on a timeline for pilot production at the Buckeye Silver Mine by the end of this quarter.

QA/QC at SBMI’s Facility

The samples analyzed by SBMI at its facility near Globe, Arizona were processed through the Lab Jaw Crusher, Lab Hammer Mill and Splitter Box into an aliquot. Most of the pulverized aliquot was mixed with a flux and flour combination and melted in a crucible at 1,850 degree Fahrenheit, with the remainder being logged and archived. Upon cooling, the poured melt was in the form of a metal button and slag, following which a bone ash cupel was utilized to eliminate the lead in the button to form a bead.  The bead was then weighed, following which a solution of 6 to 1 distilled water to nitric acid was utilized to dissolve the silver in the bead at approximately 175 degrees Fahrenheit. 

QA/QC at Paragon

The samples reported above were collected by the Company’s project geologist and then bagged, labeled, securely stored and sent to Paragon Geochemical in Sparks, Nevada following the Company’s standard QA/QC protocols and the use of independent testing labs. Silver and gold values were determined using fire assay with gravimetric finish using SOP-230. Paragon Geochemical is an IAS accredited full service geochemical laboratory in compliance with ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2017. It also holds a Certificate of Registration for its Quality Management System under ISO 9001:2015 for the testing of metal content in metal and mineral samples for mining companies.

The Qualified Person for this press release is Mr. Ron Wortel, P.Eng., who oversaw all of SBMI’s work referred to herein. Mr. Wortel is also President and a director of the Company.
