Silver Bullet Mines CTO Lifted

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – November 10, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces the Ontario Securities Commission revoked its failure to file cease trade order (“FFCTO”) against SBMI on Thursday, November 10, 2022.

The FFCTO was imposed on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, as a result of the Company not filing its audited financial statements and MDA as at June 30, 2022 on schedule. As previously disclosed, during the audit process there were no items of disagreement as between the Company and its auditors; rather, the delay in filing the audited financial statements and MDA was procedural, linked to the Arizona team’s lack of familiarity with the audit requirements for a reporting issuer. These procedural issues are being remedied going forward.

Silver Bullet Mines Financing for High-Grade Gold and PGMs

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 21, 2022) – On September 26, 2022 Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (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 Corp. Discovery of Palladium and Gold

Silver Bullet Mines, Proven and Probable

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 26, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (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 tonne. There are 28.35 grams in one ounce.

How The Gold and Palladium Were Found

The gold and palladium were discovered after SBMI initially 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.

First Batch Sample From a 60 ton Bulk Sample

To help identify the possible source of this, SBMI sent a sample (the “First Batch”) on September 7, 2022, from its concentrates of the 60 ton bulk sample to Lone Pine Analytical, a third-party lab, for further analysis. That analysis completed on September 11, 2022 revealed, from this sample, being an average of 2 collected concentrate samples, elevated levels of palladium and gold, as per the chart below:

ElementUnitConcentrationReport
(Duplicates)Limits
Auppm(1) 50.80.05

Osppm(1) .5720.05
(2) .382
Ruppm(1) ND0.05
(2) ND

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 platinim group metal exploration 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. At this time the Company is actively investigating the source and recovery of the anomalous palladium and gold values and are currently engaging additional technical support in this pursuit.”

The Company believes the results above are representative of the 60 tons of the material extracted from the Buckeye Mine.

Second Batch Samples From a 140 ton Bulk Sample

SBMI then took, from another larger bulk sample, a sample batch (the “Second Batch”) of a further seven samples from various locations in the mill. This bulk sample represents roughly 140 tons of material from the Buckeye Mine. SBMI’s assay team had initially assayed those samples for silver only. Subsequently, each of the following samples from this 140 ton bulk sample were labelled with unique identifiers as shown below:

  1. Head Feed 700 oz/Ton Ag
  2. 100 gm 2503oz/Ton Ag Conc
  3. #1 Table Cons. Original
  4. #1 Table Cons from Mill
  5. #2 Table Cons from Mill
  6. Tails
  7. Dorie Bead

Those labels were provided by SBMI’s assay team to Lone Pine Analytics by the leader of SBMI’s assay team, Mr. Robert Budd, who also collected and assayed those samples for silver. 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 in the QA/QC for SBMI.

Second Batch Samples 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:

https://images.newsfilecorp.com/files/8464/138387_capture.jpg

The Company believes these results are representative of the 140 ton bulk sample. The complete assay certificates with a photo of each sample will be posted to the Company’s website.

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 (combined from the 2 bulk samples) 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 recognize there were significant amounts of elements other than silver in this new material” continued Mr. Carter. “Standard exploration techniques may not have found the gold or palladium without the expenditure of millions of exploration dollars. We are there now, 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

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.

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

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – August 23, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (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:

WASH-ID-009< 0.1488328
WASH-ID-0104.613928126

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.

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – August 15, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is very pleased to announce it has closed on its debt financing (the “Financing”), previously announced on August 11, 2022.

The Financing is with SBMI’s largest institutional shareholder (the “Lender”), pursuant to which SBMI has borrowed CDN$650,000 (six hundred and fifty thousand dollars) from the Lender for an 18-month term. The Financing provides for an 8% annual 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 is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant exercisable at $0.35 for a four-year term.

“Management and the board have been working on this for a while,” said SBMI’s CEO, A. John Carter. “We believe this to be very attractive for the lender and friendly to our shareholders.”

SBMI also reports that Sepro Mineral Systems Corp., who assisted in the design of parts of SBMI’s mill in Arizona, is currently onsite and is assisting the Company in fine-tuning various components of the mill. The ramp-up using lower grade material continues.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Operational Update

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – August 11, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (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.

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.https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Arizona%253BCompany%253BSilver_mining%253BBall_mill%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a0V0W00000HOPDcUAP%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522newsfile_64%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%252266ea4121-4374-3b7f-bdd1-1217a3651081%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

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

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 25, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (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.”

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 Corp. New Auditors and Extension of Oversubscribed Financing

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 25, 2022) – 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.https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Grant_Thornton_LLP%253BSilver_bullet%253BCompany%253BAuditor%253BTSX_Venture_Exchange%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a0V0W00000HOPDcUAP%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522newsfile_64%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%2522e29233e5-690b-31e7-8ac4-a82e8dc8a260%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

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.
