Silver Hammer Reports Drill Results from Phase II Program at the Silver Strand Project in Idaho

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR; OTCQB: HAMRF) (the “Company” or “Silver Hammer”) is pleased to report drill results from the Phase II drilling program at the Silver Strand Project (“Silver Strand” or “the Project”). The Company completed nine drillholes from its previously established underground drilling station that were generally focused on testing the historically mined zone of gold-silver (“Au-Ag”) mineralization at greater depth and further along strike.

Key Highlights and Takeaways:

  • Six of the nine drillholes returned >100 grams per tonne (“g/t”) Ag and/or >1 g/t Au intercepts.
  • SS22-017 intersected 2.9 g/t Au over 8.4 metres (“m”), including 4.4 g/t Au and 74.5 g/t Ag over 1.8 m, demonstrating the potential for significant gold grades at Silver Strand.
  • SS22-015 intersected three mineralized zones, including 613 g/t Ag over 0.5 metres (“m”) extending mineralization to 65 m below historical workings.
  • SS22-18 also intersected multiple zones: 212 g/t Ag and 0.67 g/t Au over 1.5 m, and 2.45 g/t Au and 8.9 g/t Ag over 4.4 m.
  • SS22-011 intersected 115 g/t Ag and 2.0 g/t Au over 0.7 m within a broader 5.5 m interval of lower grade Ag mineralization, and an additional 9.9 g/t Ag and 1.7 g/t Au intercept over 2.1 m further downhole in an area with no previous drilling.
  • 2022 drilling results extend mineralization further along strike to the northwest, southeast and to depth (see Figure 1 and Table 1).

“These new results demonstrate consistent gold and silver values in mineralization beneath and adjacent to the historical mine workings at Silver Strand,” stated Interim President and CEO, Warwick Smith. “We are particularly encouraged to see elevated gold values in mineralization extending beyond our previously modeled and interpreted zone that was based on limited historical drilling. We believe we are still very much in the upper part of the structurally controlled Ag-Au system and these new results from a modest (667 m) and cost-effective drilling program coupled with our recently completed geophysics point to the potential for additional lenses of mineralization that we can pursue in subsequent drilling campaigns.”

Program Details and Interpretation and Summary of Results

A total of nine HQ (6.35 centimetre) core holes were completed by local drilling contractor, Nasco Industrial Service and Supply (NISS), totaling 667 metres (“m”). Eight of the nine holes, drilled from an underground drilling station established by the Company, encountered mineralization within the anticipated structural and silicified zone which measures 30 m wide over a 170 m strike length to-date. This structural zone is defined by multiple, near-vertical fractures some of which are intruded by post-mineral mafic dikes that can be traced along the surface by magnetics surveying.

The results from the Phase II drilling program at Silver Strand demonstrate that the mineralized system continues well outside of the previously mined areas. Drillholes SS22-009, SS22-011, SS22-012, and SS22-013 were designed to test to the southeast beyond the modelled Silver Strand mineralization. Three of these drillholes successfully intersected Au-Ag mineralization and lend support to the Company’s view that the known Silver Strand zone can be extended to greater depth and that there is good potential for additional mineralized ‘chutes’ along strike. Besides yielding encouraging intercepts of Au-Ag mineralization the Phase II drillholes confirmed that the known mineralization is hosted within a 20 to 40 m wide zone of pervasive silicification that is superimposed on fractured quartzite rocks believed to belong to the Revett formation, the most productive ore-hosting formation in the Coeur d’Alene mining district. Also, the drillholes intersected at least four post-mineral mafic dykes that are interpreted to have been intruded into the quartzites along structures some of which had already acted as conduits for the precious metal-enriched hydrothermal fluids. In fact, the better mineralized intercepts are found along the faulted contacts of a number of the mafic dykes.

Going forward, the Company will be updating its 3D model of the Silver Strand deposit, incorporating lithological and alteration information as well as the multi-element geochemical data produced by the drillhole assays from the two drilling programs. The new model will then be examined in the context of the existing magnetics and induced polarization survey data the Company has acquired over the known mineralization. It is anticipated that a geophysical ‘signature’ will be defined for the Silver Strand structure which will allow it to be traced across the property, a potential strike length of five kilometers. This will then translate into new high-potential drill targets being defined on the 5.85 km² property.

Technical Background

The world-class northern Idaho silver-lead-zinc mining district is underlain by Proterozoic fine-grained metasedimentary rocks of the Belt Supergroup. Regional compressive tectonism folded the quartz-rich sandstones, siltstones and mudstones into WNW-ESE trending anticlines and synclines, with steeply inclined major fractures being developed along the limbs of these folds, particularly within quartz-rich meta-sandstones (eg. Revett formation quartzites). A major hydrothermal event, possibly related to the emplacement of the Idaho Batholith to the south of the district, deposited into some of the more continuous quartzite-hosted fractures iron carbonate and quartz followed by Pb, Zn, Cu-Sb-Ag sulphides giving rise to the productive Pb-Zn and Ag-rich veins of the Coeur d’Alene district. Subsequent to the regional Pb-Ag-Zn mineralizing event, the folded Belt metasedimentary rocks were subjected to ESE-WNW directed compression that resulted in dextral shearing along pre-existing structures giving rise to the district’s major strike-slip faults, including the Osburn Fault.

Quality Assurance, Quality Control

Sample Security

The following measures were taken to ensure sample security: samples were submitted to the American Analytical Services (AAS) by company personnel following the guidelines and procedures of Silver Hammer Mining Company; only authorized personnel have attended the samples; core was logged at the Silver Hammer core processing facility and then transferred to the AAS lab in Osburn, Idaho.

Analysis Suite

All drill core samples were analyzed by AAS using conventional assay methods involving the fire assaying of 30-gram charges of pulverized sample material for gold and silver, with ICP finishing. Gravimetric analyses were to be applied to any samples that yielded Au values greater than 10 g/t Au and 10 g/t Ag. In addition, pulverized charges were collected for all core samples and were entirely dissolved using 4-acid digestion, with the final solution being analyzed for 35 elements using the ICP-MS method.

Audits or reviews

Internal review of sampling techniques, data, and drilling results by the Company’s management is routinely done through the course of the project.

Standards, Blanks and Duplicates

For quality assurance/quality control purposes, the batches of core samples sent to AAS for assaying and ICP analyses were regularly infused with ‘duplicate’, ‘standard’ and ‘blank’ samples. So-called ‘standard’ samples consisted of certified reference material (OREAS 611) of pulverized rock obtained from OREAS, a company that provides certified reference materials. The ‘blank’ samples consisted of barren landscaping gravel, while the ‘duplicates’ were in fact laboratory duplicates created during sample preparation at the labs of AAS. The laboratory also provided analytical results for their own reference samples for further a QA/QC check. The standards and blanks were inserted into the assay stream by Silver Hammer geologists.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR; OTCQB: HAMRF) (the “Company” or “Silver Hammer”) is pleased to report that soil sampling results at the Eliza Project (“Eliza” or the “Project”) have defined significant anomalies that extend well beyond the small historical mine areas.

A total of 518 soil samples were collected from the northern area of Eliza with results ranging from below detection limit to 26.95 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver (“Ag”). Thirty-nine samples returned grades higher than 1 g/t silver. Results with over 0.5 g/t Ag are highly anomalous and can be considered a tracer of potential larger systems. The purpose of the soil sampling program was to further define the extent of mineralization within the northern area and examine any geochemical patterns that may exist. The soil sampling program has outlined four distinct target areas, which are now being further evaluated. The historic mining areas include the California, Passynak and Belmont mines; a new fourth area, the Western Anomaly will be added to our focus going forward.

President and CEO, Morgan Lekstrom commented: “Our thesis has always been that a methodical and modern exploration approach in districts with small-scale, high-grade historical production can lead to the discovery of much larger mineralized systems. Soil sampling does not typically return silver results greater than 1 g/t, so we are very encouraged not only by the widespread nature of mineralization, but by the highly anomalous values from this program.” Lekstrom added, “This type of low-cost, high-impact exploration work aligns with our current view towards maintaining a strong treasury during the current market environment and we have initiated preliminary discussions with prospective partners on our Nevada assets as we advance these projects toward a drill-ready stage.”

Soil samples are commonly used as a targeting tool to find major discoveries and these results provide evidence supporting the potential for widespread mineralization well beyond the small historical mines dating back to the1860’s Hamilton Silver Rush.

Eliza North Soil Grid
To date, 518 soil samples have been collected from the Eliza North Grid Area, which includes the Passynak, Belmont and California historical mines. The mines are accessible by road and are situated within 670 m of each other. Each mine has a distinct geochemical anomaly collectively stretching over 700 m.

Passynak
The Passynak area is the strongest multi-element anomaly. Significant soil sample results were found over a broad 200 m diameter area. Twelve soil samples show greater than 1 g/t Ag with anomalous copper, lead, antimony, and zinc. Care and attention were given to eliminate any samples collected from past mine dumps or transported surface debris.

Sampling Protocol

Soil samples were collected from the “B Horizon” every 75 metres (“m”) on 75m line spacing and then infilled on a 37.5 m spacing in areas of greater interest. Typical sample depths ranged between 30 and 45 centimetres.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Assays were processed by American Assay Laboratories Inc. in Sparks, Nevada. The laboratory has its own QA/QC protocols running standards and blanks with duplicate samples in each batch stream. Silver Hammer geological staff inserted a system of field duplicates, blanks and lab standards into the sample stream every 10 samples to ensure QA/QC of the work. A multi-element assay method was used for silver and all other elements called ICP-5AM48 with an ICP-OES/MS finish and reported in ppm. Gold was assayed by fire assay with an ICP finish and reported down to 3 ppb in method FA-PB30-ICP.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR; OTCQB: HAMRF) (the “Company” or “Silver Hammer”) is pleased to announce that the first drillhole of an 11-hole Phase II diamond drill program (“Phase II Drill Program”) has been completed at its past-producing Silver Strand Project in Idaho.

The Phase II Drill Program, which is utilizing the Company’s established underground drilling station, is focused on expanding known silver-gold mineralization further down-dip, while also testing the potential for additional mineralized chutes (see Figure 1). The Company has generated priority targets based on a drone supported magnetic survey, Phase I drilling results, and the integration of historical drilling data acquired from previous operators of the Silver Strand Project (see Jan 26, 2022 news release).

“We are excited to return to our flagship project and move forward with our Phase II Drill Program at Silver Strand. We have drillholes designed to test up to three times as deep as our previous phase of drilling and a series of other holes that will test the system laterally with the aim of discovering parallel chutes to the southeast of the main mine trend,” stated President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom. “We believe the potential for making additional discoveries at Silver Strand is excellent and finding new high-grade zones of gold-silver mineralization would demonstrate the large-scale potential we think is possible here.”

NISS, the Company’s drilling contractor, has begun drilling and successfully finished the first hole. Approximately 1,100 meters of drilling is currently planned with ability to expand the program depending on core observations and initial assay results. Silver Hammer continues to use the Company’s underground drilling station to deliver much better ROI per metre drilled. The Phase II Drill Program is expected to last approximately seven weeks, with assay results to follow during Q4/2022.

(VIDEO) Silver Hammer Mining – Getting Ready to Drill the Silver Strand

Silver Hammer Mining, Proven and Probable

Joining us for a conversation is Morgan Lekstrom the CEO of Silver Hammer Mining (CSE: HAMR), to provide a company update on the Silver Strand Mine, which is getting ready for a highly anticipated drill program. The past-producing Silver Strand Mine is comprised of 70 claims over a 5.5 kilometres strike length atop the Revett formation, a silver belt within the renowned Coeur d’Alene mining district in Idaho, a district that has produced over 1.2 billion ounces of silver and is host to some of the world’s largest silver mines, many of which were mined to depths exceeding 1800 metres.

Also, we will find out the proposed plans on the Eliza Project. The Eliza Silver Project is located along strike of the Hamilton Mining District (Hamilton District), Nevada’s highest-grade silver district, which produced 40 million (M) ounces (oz) silver with grades up to 25,000 grams per tonne (g/t) between 1876-1890. Silver Hammer Mining has some of the most respected value creators in the Junior Mining Industry with names such as Lawrence Roulston.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR; OTCQB: HAMRF) (the “Company” or “Silver Hammer”) is pleased to announce plans to begin an 11-hole Phase II diamond drill program from the Company’s established underground drilling station, before the end of July at its past-producing Silver Strand Project in Idaho.

The Phase II drill program will focus on expanding the known silver-gold zone down-dip and will also assess the potential for additional mineralized chutes (Figure 1). Targets for this program are based on exploration work performed by Silver Hammer in 2021, including a drone supported magnetic survey, Phase I drilling, as well integration of drilling data acquired from previous owners of the Silver Strand Project (see Jan 26, 2022 news release).

“This Phase II drill program will build upon results of the Phase I program completed late 2021, which confirmed that silver and gold-bearing sulphide mineralization extends beneath the historic mine workings,” stated President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom. “As with Phase I, we will utilize an existing underground drift and drilling bay, which we rehabilitated last year, to begin to test the depth extent of the known mineralized body as well as to test for additional mineralized chutes in a very cost-effective manner.”

The Company has signed a contract with Nasco Industrial Services and Supply, which will use HQ, 3.5-inch diameter drill core to obtain good core recovery and relatively large core samples for reliable assays.

Silver Hammer is also progressing exploration of the Eliza Project in Nevada with a detailed follow-up soil grid sampling program, the results of which are expected in late July.
