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.

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

Silver Bullet Mines, Proven and Probable

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.”

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.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Near-Term Production at Washington Silver Mine in Idaho

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – May 5, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (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. Closing of Oversubscribed Financing

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 30, 2022) – On March 25, 2022, Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announced an extension to close on the final tranche of its previously announced financing (the “Financing”). The Company announces it has now closed on the final round of the Financing. The gross cash proceeds from the Financing is $2,718,903.

“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. “We had planned certain capital expenditures for some months out to improve the recovery rates for silver and copper at our mill in Arizona. The strength of the Financing empowers us to makes those expenditures now, which we expect will increase anticipated revenue and cash flow.”

The oversubscribed total represents 6,797,258 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 35% 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.

An insider of the Company participated in the Financing which is a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company relies upon the exemptions contained in MI61-101 in sections 5.5 and 5.7.

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

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – February 14, 2022) – 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

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – February 9, 2022) – 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. Commences Extraction of Mineralized Material at Its Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 27, 2022) – 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.

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.”
