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

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 5, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (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://youtu.be/KvhAhqABV74) 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.

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.

Junior Mining Precious Metals Strike Point Gold

StrikePoint Commences Discovery-Focused Exploration Program at the High-Grade Porter Silver and Willoughby Gold Properties

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 5, 2022) – Strikepoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that exploration work has commenced at its 100%-owned Properties located near Stewart, BC in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. 3,000 metres of drilling is planned at the Willoughby gold-silver and Porter Silver Properties, in addition to surface sampling and mapping programs with an emphasis on exploration at the Porter Silver Property.

Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO of Strikepoint states,With a healthy treasury over $5 million, we are excited to commence our drilling programs at the Porter and Willoughby Properties. At Porter, our work will continue to test the limits and source of the historic silver mines; at Willoughby, we will also seek new high-grade gold-silver discoveries in previously unexplored areas.”

Porter Silver Property

The Porter Property hosts the three highest-grade pure silver historic producers in the Stewart area: the Prosperity, Porter Idaho and Silverado mines. Objectives for the 2022 season include:

  • Drill extensions to high-grade silver mineralization outlined in historic resource estimates
  • Explore for the roots of the silver veins and gold-silver-rich intrusive-related mineralization
  • Assess the underground access and workings for future rehabilitation

1,600 metres of drilling is planned at Porter, initially targeting the past-producing Prosperity, Blind and D veins in 8-10 holes. Additionally, mapping and sampling will be completed prioritizing exploring the northwest and eastern areas of the Property. Work at the western side will investigate strong alteration and gossan with historic gold-rich prospects along northwest trending structures. On the eastern side of the Property, significant glacial retreat of the Marmot glacier and alpine icefields have revealed new exposures that have never seen modern exploration.

The Porter Project contains two shears-hosted silver-rich vein systems: the Silverado and Prosperity-Porter Idaho. The showings are 2.35 km apart, located on opposite sides of Mt. Rainey, overlooking the town of Stewart. The Project is located strategically at the head of the Portland Canal, a deep-water port with year-round, ice-free access. Significant underground workings on multiple levels were used by the historic operators. During the 2022 season, StrikePoint will investigate the feasibility of completing rehabilitation of the workings, most recently used in the 1980s for exploration work, to complete a future underground drilling program.

The initial discovery of silver mineralization on Mt. Rainey occurred in the early 1900s. Prosperity-Porter Idaho veins were the focus of the initial work where mineralization is hosted in six parallel dipping shear zones which have been traced in underground workings for up to 425 metres along strike and 360 metres downdip with widths between 2 and 13 metres. The zones remain open at depth. The deposit was mined between 1929 and 1931 and produced 27,123 tonnes with recovered grades of 2,542 g/t silver (73.8 oz/ton) and 1 g/t gold (yielding approximately 2.2 million ounces of silver). Direct shipping ore was transported to the port at Stewart via aerial tramway.

Willoughby Gold-Silver Property

Strikepoint’s 2022 drilling season will commence at the Willoughby gold-silver Property with 1,400 metres in 6-8 holes. Objectives for the Willoughby exploration program include:

  • Drill northern and southern extensions to the 600 metre long trend of mineralized zones along the Willoughby nunatak
  • Exploratory drilling to discover new mineralization to the west of the Willoughby nunatak trend

Willoughby occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-stage Red Mountain Deposit owned by Ascot Resources. Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcano-sedimentary rocks underlay the property, subsequently intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at the nearby Red Mountain deposit. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primary pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite and native gold. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to date over a one-kilometre strike-length mineralized trend.

Qualified Person

The Qualified Person for this news release for National Instrument 43-101 is Andrew Hamilton, P. Geo, technical advisor to StrikePoint. He has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this news release.

JPMorgan Sees ‘Stratospheric’ $380 Oil on Worst-Case Russian Cut

By

Joe Carroll July 1, 2022 at 3:59 PM EDT

In this article

CL1WTI Crude108.43USD/bbl.+2.67+2.52%JPMJPMORGAN CHASE114.05USD+1.44+1.28%

Global oil prices could reach a “stratospheric” $380 a barrel if US and European penalties prompt Russia to inflict retaliatory crude-output cuts, JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts warned.

The Group of Seven nations are hammering out a complicated mechanism to cap the price fetched by Russian oil in a bid to tighten the screws on Vladimir Putin’s war machine in Ukraine. But given Moscow’s robust fiscal position, the nation can afford to slash daily crude production by 5 million barrels without excessively damaging the economy, JPMorgan analysts including Natasha Kaneva wrote in a note to clients.

For much of the rest of the world, however, the results could be disastrous. A 3 million-barrel cut to daily supplies would push benchmark London crude prices to $190, while the worst-case scenario of 5 million could mean “stratospheric” $380 crude, the analysts wrote.

“The most obvious and likely risk with a price cap is that Russia might choose not to participate and instead retaliate by reducing exports,” the analysts wrote. “It is likely that the government could retaliate by cutting output as a way to inflict pain on the West. The tightness of the global oil market is on Russia’s side.”

Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to operational hazards, including possible disruption due to pandemic such as COVID-19, its impact on travel, self-isolation protocols and business and operations, estimated production and mine life of the project of Mountain Province; the realization of mineral reserve estimates; the timing and amount of estimated future production; costs of production; the future price of diamonds; the estimation of mineral reserves and resources; the ability to manage debt; capital expenditures; the ability to obtain permits for operations; liquidity; tax rates; and currency exchange rate fluctuations.  Except for statements of historical fact relating to Mountain Province, certain information contained herein constitutes forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are frequently characterized by words such as “anticipates,” “may,” “can,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “projects,” “targets,” “intends,” “likely,” “will,” “should,” “to be”, “potential” and other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions “may”, “should” or “will” occur.  Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements are made, and are based on a number of assumptions and subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.  Many of these assumptions are based on factors and events that are not within the control of Mountain Province and there is no assurance they will prove to be correct.

Factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward-looking statements include the development of operation hazards which could arise in relation to COVID-19, including, but not limited to protocols which may be adopted to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and any impact of such protocols on Mountain Province’s business and operations, variations in ore grade or recovery rates, changes in market conditions, changes in project parameters, mine sequencing; production rates; cash flow; risks relating to the availability and timeliness of permitting and governmental approvals; supply of, and demand for, diamonds; fluctuating commodity prices and currency exchange rates, the possibility of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated.

These factors are discussed in greater detail in Mountain Province’s most recent Annual Information Form and in the most recent MD&A filed on SEDAR, which also provide additional general assumptions in connection with these statements. Mountain Province cautions that the foregoing list of important factors is not exhaustive. Investors and others who base themselves on forward-looking statements should carefully consider the above factors as well as the uncertainties they represent and the risk they entail. Mountain Province believes that the expectations reflected in those forward-looking statements are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in this news release should not be unduly relied upon. These statements speak only as of the date of this news release.

Although Mountain Province has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be anticipated, estimated or intended.  There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Mountain Province undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances or management’s estimates or opinions should change except as required by applicable securities laws. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Statements concerning mineral reserve and resource estimates may also be deemed to constitute forward-looking statements to the extent they involve estimates of the mineralization that will be encountered as the property is developed. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Further, Mountain Province may make changes to its business plans that could affect its results. The principal assets of Mountain Province are administered pursuant to a joint venture under which Mountain Province is not the operator. Mountain Province is exposed to actions taken or omissions made by the operator within its prerogative and/or determinations made by the joint venture under its terms.
