(VIDEO) Metallic Minerals Initiates 2022 Exploration Program at Keno Silver Project in Yukon, Canada

Metallic Minerals, Proven and Probable

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 13, 2022 / Metallic Minerals (TSXV:MMG | US OTCQB:MMNGF) (“Metallic Minerals“, or the “Company“) announces the commencement of field activities at the Company’s 100% owned, 166 square kilometer Keno Silver project, located in the historic Keno Hill silver district of Canada’s Yukon Territory. In July 2022, Hecla Mining Company (“Hecla”), the largest silver producer in the United States and third largest in the world1, announced the acquisition of neighboring Alexco Resource Corp.(“Alexco”), which holds the western portion of the district and mining and milling operations. Metallic Minerals owns the second largest land position in the prolific district covering the east, and parts of central and western Keno Hill, including eight high-grade, shallow past-producing deposits.

The 2022 exploration program is expected to consist of at least 3,000 meters of diamond core drilling, focused on resource definition drilling at multiple advanced-stage targets including Formo and Caribou deposits in the West Keno and Central Keno areas and the recently discovered Fox target area in East Keno, as well as step out drilling at several new discoveries. Detailed geophysical and soil surveys will also be conducted to aid in refinement and prioritization of reconnaissance drill targets in several untested target areas. Additionally, for the first time, the district will be flown for a LIDAR survey, which will provide greater precision in survey and topographic control while aiding in lineament detection in the search for new Keno-style high-grade silver discoveries.

Metallic Minerals President, Scott Petsel, commented: “We are excited to be initiating our 2022 field campaign at the Keno Silver project, particularly in the wake of the recently announced acquisition of our neighbors at Alexco by Hecla. This is a re-energizing catalyst for the Keno Hill silver district and highlights the quality of the existing reserves and resources and the exploration potential in one of the world’s highest grade silver producing regions that has produced over 200 million ounces of ultra-high-grade silver. We have enjoyed a close and productive working relationship with the team at Alexco and are excited to see the mining operation reach its full potential.”

“Metallic Minerals is on the cusp of transforming our own story in the Keno silver district as this year’s drill program is focused on advancing existing mineral inventories to formal NI 43-101 resources at our most advanced targets. In addition, we expect to announce commencement of field activity at our La Plata silver-gold-copper project in Colorado shortly, as well as updates with regard to planned activities on our Klondike alluvial gold royalty portfolio.”

Private Placement

Metallic has completed and closed its second non-brokered private placement financing for total proceeds raised of $4,649,820. Proceeds from the two private placements will be used toward eligible Canadian exploration expenses, within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and for general working capital.

The second private placement consisted of the issuance of 1,471,000 units at a price of $0.42 per unit for aggregate proceeds of $617,820. Each unit consisted of one common share and one-half purchase warrant where each whole warrant is exercisable into a common share for 30 months at a price of $0.50. A total of 846,000 units were sold on a flow-through basis with the common share comprising the units being issued as a flow-through common share.

The common shares comprising the units are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from their date of issuance under applicable Canadian securities law. The flow-through shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.

An officer of the company participated in the private placement for a total of 25,000 units. The participation by the insider in the private placement is considered to be a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the securities being issued, nor the consideration being paid exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.

About the Keno Silver Project

Keno Hill is one of the world’s highest-grade silver districts, with nearly 300 million ounces (“Moz”) of silver in past production and current M&I resources1,2 and featuring excellent existing infrastructure, including grid power, road access and nearby community services. In July 2022, Hecla announced the acquisition of Alexco Resource Corp, which holds the western portion of the district and mining and milling operations. Metallic Minerals’ Keno Silver project is adjacent and contiguous, covering the east, and parts of the central and western Keno silver district and includes eight high-grade, shallow past-producing mines. Prior to the Company’s consolidation of the land package, very little modern exploration had been completed in these parts of the district due to fragmented, private land ownership. Metallic Minerals has advanced three targets in the district from discovery to expansion drilling with several additional targets at drill-ready status along the known historically productive trends. In addition, recent exploration has defined and expanded 12 new priority multi-kilometer-scale early-stage targets for reconnaissance drilling in the under-explored parts of the district where highly elevated silver, lead and zinc in soils and high-grade rock samples have been identified.
