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.”

Silver Hammer recently completed the purchase of the strategic California Mine Patent claim, which is located entirely within the Eliza Project claim block. The Patent covers an area of 4.6 acres and includes the past-producing California Mine (Figure 1).

Figure 1. Eliza Property Map, Including Newly Acquired California Patent Claim

https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/9a6873fd-55a6-4ac7-9d2c-63b2a8908d10

A spring sampling program collected a total of 25 rock chip and grab samples from sites in the northern sector of Eliza, which includes the newly acquired California Mine area. Analytical results derived from these samples confirm the existence of high-grade silver (“Ag”) mineralization, and the presence of significant concentrations of copper (“Cu”), lead (“Pb”) and zinc (“Zn”) associated with the silver.

Sample Highlights Include:

  • PN662703: 1290 grams per tonne (“g/t”) Ag
  • PN662717: 1180 g/t Ag; 7.70% Cu; 11.00% Pb; 13.40% Zn
  • PN662715: 632 g/t silver; 2.2% Cu; 1.49% Pb; 0.55% Zn

See Table 1 for additional results.

“Although we are in the early days of exploring Eliza, these high-grade samples provide further evidence that the Project, including the newly acquired California Patent, is an exciting and high potential area,” stated President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom. “Our exploration work continues to demonstrate the existence of high-grade silver mineralization in a historic mining district that has seen limited modern exploration work. An especially interesting aspect of the results from this recent round of sampling is the presence of high-grade copper, lead and zinc, in addition to the silver. This particular suite of metals is characteristic of vein and replacement-style mineral deposits commonly found peripheral to porphyry copper deposits. Given the recent sampling results, the potential for porphyry-related mineralization will be assessed by our geologists as we further investigate the known silver prospects and potential.”

Table 1: Notable Results from the Spring Sampling Program at Eliza

https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/4cc37fae-9ae8-44e6-869b-8a48ef2bb77d

Ongoing field work at Eliza includes soil sampling and geological mapping. A program of geophysical surveying is planned to commence in Q2-Q3, 2022. Results of the geochemical and geophysical surveys will be used to define priority drill targets ahead of an initial phase of drilling at the Project.

Technical Observations at Eliza

The geological setting at Eliza is similar to that of other mines in the area. District-scale folding of Middle Paleozoic limestone and shale formations appears to have formed open-space fault and fracture zones which channeled mineralizing fluids through chemically receptive host rocks, specifically the Devonian Guillmette and Joana Limestone formations.

The spring sampling program done at and around the historic mines found on the Eliza Project has shown that the replacement-style mineralized zones in limestone exist along axial planar faults and fracture zones and commonly weather into resistant ridges.

The assay results from the sampling program confirm observations made in the field: limestone and dolomite micro-breccia replacement zones show strong to very strong enrichments in Ag, arsenic (“As”), barium (“Ba”), Cu, manganese (“Mn”), Pb and Zn. Notable results are shown in Table 1 and Figure 1.

Qualified Person

Technical aspects of this press release have been reviewed and approved by Philip Mulholland, a Certified Professional Geologist (CPG) with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, a contractor of the Company and the designated Qualified Person (QP) under National Instrument 43-101.

Quality Assurance, Quality Control Sample Security

The following measures were taken to ensure sample security: samples were submitted to AAS American Analytical Services; only authorized personnel attended the samples; samples were collected and recorded by Silver Hammer geologists and then shipped to the AAS lab in Osburn, Idaho.

Analysis Suite

All samples were analyzed by AAS using conventional assay methods involving fire assaying of 50-gram charges of pulverized sample material for gold and silver, with Fire Assay ICP Finish (FA-ICP); AND ICP-35 Element Scan (M-ICP-35).

Audits or reviews

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

Blanks and Duplicates

For quality assurance/quality control purposes, the batches of samples sent to AAS for assaying and ICP analyses were regularly infused with ‘duplicate’, and ‘blank’ samples. The ‘duplicates’ were created during sample preparation at AAS. The laboratory also provided analytical results for their own reference samples for further QA/QC check.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR/OTCQB:HAMRF) (“Silver Hammer” or the “Company”) is pleased to report exploration results from a rock sampling and mapping program that has led to Company more than doubling the Silverton Project area through the staking of additional claims. The Silverton Project is located 129 kilometres (“km”) northeast of the Tonopah silver district in Nevada and was acquired by the Company in 2021.

Program Highlights:

  • Obtained multiple rock-chip samples of silver mineralization assaying up to 330 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver (“Ag”) southwest of the former Silverton Mine
  • New samples, together with structural information obtained in the field, suggest historically mined silver zone extends to southwest and potentially continues under colluvium and post-mineral volcanic rocks
  • Added 19 claims (516 acres) to cover potential extension of the silver zone mined by previous operators the Silverton Mine
    “Based on our exploration completed to date at the Silverton Project, where minor silver production occurred in the 1930s, we believe that the historical mining developed just a small portion of a significantly larger zone or system of silver mineralization that has now been shown to extend hundreds of metres southwest of the old mine,” stated President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom. “Detrital sediments and young volcanic rocks appear to overlie and obscure the silver mineralized system southwest of the mine and we now believe that the strike extent of the system could be significantly expanded. Consequently, we have filed for 19 additional claims in a block that is contiguous with our original six-claim Silverton Project.

Technical Information

Assay results from 102 rock-chip samples, 40 of which were collected in January of this year, indicate that the silver mineralization in the historic Silverton Mine area is hosted by fractured limestone and quartzite beds, with distinct structures of brecciated limestone containing the highest-grade silver. These structures, also marked by patchy silicification and quartz-iron oxide veinlets, generally trend north 030° east. When the mineralized structures are followed southwest from the mine they are soon obscured by colluvium. Table 1 below, lists some of the better silver assays for the recently collected rock samples.
