VANCOUVER, BC, Could 3, 2021 /CNW/ – GR Silver Mining Ltd. (TSXV: GRSL) (FRANKFURT: GPE) (OTCQB: GRSLF) (“GR Silver Mining” or the “Firm”) – is happy to report drill outcomes that reach the high-grade silver mineralization 100 m to the north alongside strike within the San Juan Vein. Moreover, a large, as much as 65 m steady silver mineralized zone, is delineated on the footwall of the Yecora Vein, defining shallow broad mineralized zones to be included within the upcoming maiden useful resource estimate at San Juan. Each veins are a part of the vein system of the San Juan Space of the Plomosas Silver Venture (“Plomosas Venture”) in Sinaloa, Mexico.
The outcomes contained inside this information launch combine drill holes obtained from the Firm’s present drill program with the prevailing historic drilling information to assist the upcoming maiden useful resource estimates on the Plomosas Venture. They signify intersections in two of the six veins already delineated within the San Juan Space (Determine 1).
The high-grade silver mineralization encountered within the San Juan Vein confirms continuity of the mineralization near floor, 100 m to the north alongside strike, and likewise correlates with beforehand recognized high-grade mineralization at depth (Determine 2).
GR Silver Mining President and CEO, Marcio Fonseca commented, “We’re very happy to report further outcomes from the Firm’s 2021 drilling of the San Juan Space, which together with historic drill outcomes, considerably prolong shallow high-grade silver vein constructions. The outcomes additionally determine broad mineralization adjoining to current high-grade silver veins, defining a big epithermal system to assist the maiden useful resource delineation underway for the San Juan Space. These outcomes spotlight the potential of three of the six veins within the San Juan Space to host a shallow high-grade useful resource. The remaining veins at San Juan present a chance for attainable future useful resource estimations.”
The broad interval of silver mineralization on the footwall of the Yecora Vein represents the invention of a a lot bigger footprint than initially interpreted for this epithermal vein system, supporting potential open pit-amenable zones. The sort of broad mineralization, hosted in a hydrothermal breccia at Yecora, has geological similarities with high-grade silver-gold mineralization drilled 100 m alongside strike and beforehand reported (see News Release dated November 23, 2020). Floor geophysical information signifies the presence of enormous our bodies at depth, probably associated to the wide-spread silver mineralized zones at San Juan.
Floor diamond core drilling is ongoing on the different veins inside the San Juan Space (Determine 2), notably within the La Colorada Vein. GR Silver continues to delineate high-grade, shallow silver-gold mineralization on the La Colorada Vein. The La Colorada Vein represents a NW continuation of the Yecora Vein, in an space with a sequence of shallow previous workings, and the place the vein system has the potential to be prolonged at the very least one other 1 km alongside strike. The shallow core drilling program underway on the San Juan Space will combine three vein zones; San Juan, Yecora and La Colorada, with a mixed whole strike size of two km into an preliminary maiden useful resource estimate.
Extra veins situated within the San Juan Space, which embrace San Francisco, Loma Dorada and La Odisea, would be the topic of further diamond drilling in 2021, following the completion of the maiden useful resource estimation, desiring to proceed the Firm’s identification of latest sources within the Plomosas Venture.

About GR Silver Mining Ltd.
GR Silver Mining Ltd. is a Mexico-focused firm engaged in cost-effective silver-gold useful resource growth on its key property which lie on the japanese fringe of the Rosario Mining District, Sinaloa, Mexico.
Plomosas Silver Venture
GR Silver Mining owns 100% of the Plomosas Silver Venture situated close to the historic mining village of La Rastra, inside the Rosario Mining District. The Venture is a past-producing asset the place just one mine, the Plomosas lead-zinc(-silver-gold) underground mine, operated a 600 tpd crush milling flotation circuit from 1986 to 2001, producing roughly 8 Moz of silver, 73 M lbs of lead and 28 M lbs of zinc.
The Venture has an 8,515 ha property place and is strategically situated inside 5 km of the Firm’s San Marcial Silver Venture within the southeast of Sinaloa State, Mexico.
The March 2020 acquisition of the Plomosas Silver Venture included 563 historic and up to date drill holes from each floor and underground areas. These drill holes signify an in depth database permitting the Firm to advance in direction of useful resource estimation and potential undertaking improvement within the close to future.
The Firm is finishing up a drilling program with floor holes targeted on increasing identified mineralization alongside strike in two preliminary areas, the Plomosas Mine Space and the San Juan Space. Underground drilling included in this system is concentrating on the extension of latest Au-rich discoveries on the lowest degree (775 m RL, or ~250 m beneath floor) of the Plomosas Mine Space and 6 low sulphidation epithermal veins on the San Juan Space. Each areas would be the topic of NI 43-101 useful resource estimations following completion of this drill program.
The 100%-owned property embrace all amenities and infrastructure together with: entry roads, floor rights settlement, water use allow, 8,000 m of underground workings, water entry, 60 km – 33 KV energy line, places of work, outlets, 120-person camp, infirmary, warehouses and assay lab representing roughly US$30M of earlier capital investments. The earlier homeowners invested roughly US$18M in exploration, together with intensive geophysics and geochemistry applications.
The silver-gold mineralization on this Venture shows the alteration, textures, mineralogy and deposit geometry traits of a low sulphidation epithermal silver-gold-base steel mineralized vein/breccia system. Earlier exploration was targeted on polymetallic (Pb-Zn+/-Ag-Au) shallow mineralization, hosted in NW-SE constructions within the neighborhood of the Plomosas Mine. The E-W portion of the mineralization and extensions of the primary N-S Plomosas Fault stay under-explored.
Along with the useful resource potential at Plomosas, a overview of the prevailing drill gap database, geophysical surveys and geochemical information overlaying many of the concession, has outlined 16 new exploration targets of which 11 have excessive precedence for future exploration applications.
San Marcial Venture
San Marcial is a near-surface, high-grade silver-lead-zinc open pit-amenable undertaking. The Firm filed a Nationwide Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) report entitled “San Marcial Venture Useful resource Estimation and Technical Report, Sinaloa, Mexico” having an efficient date of March 18, 2019 and an amended date of June 10, 2020 (the “Report”), which incorporates a 36 Moz AgEq (Indicated) and 11 Moz AgEq (Inferred) useful resource estimate. The Report was ready by Todd McCracken and Marcelo Filipov of WSP Canada Inc. and is out there on SEDAR. The corporate just lately accomplished over 320 m of underground improvement within the San Marcial Useful resource Space, from which underground drilling is deliberate to increase the high-grade parts of the useful resource down-dip. The Firm just lately found further mineralization within the footwall, exterior of the prevailing useful resource, and also will be drilling this space. GR Silver Mining is the primary firm to conduct exploration at San Marcial in over 10 years.
Current exploration has recognized silver and gold mineralization in areas beforehand outlined as non-mineralized, discovering proof of pervasively altered rocks with intense silicification, veining and related broad, silver and gold mineralized zones on the footwall of the NI 43-101 useful resource space.
La Trinidad Venture
The La Trinidad Venture was acquired in March 2021. Whereas La Trinidad has been the main target of artisanal mining exercise over many many years, business operations started late within the twentieth century. Anaconda Minerals Corp. was first to drill the undertaking within the mid-late Eighties. After initially taking over an possibility on the Venture in 1993, Eldorado Gold Corp. then commenced an open pit gold mine at La Trinidad in 1995, generally known as the Taunus Pit, with ore being processed through a heap leach operation. The mine operated till 1998, producing roughly 52,000 oz of gold3.
Exploration undertaken by Oro Gold from 2006 recognized further sources beneath the Taunus Pit and operations recommenced late in 2014. Gold output from the heap leach pads continued till late 2019 for a complete cumulative manufacturing by Oro Gold of 112,000 oz gold4,5. Along with La Trinidad, the portfolio acquired by GR Silver Mining contains an in depth regional database of geological, geochemical and geophysical info ensuing from historic exploration expenditure by Oro Gold of greater than CDN$18.6 M since 2006.
Cimarron is one other superior stage undertaking that was acquired together with the La Trinidad Venture in March 2021 and is situated 40 km to the NW of La Trinidad. Various targets have been recognized at Cimarron together with Calerita, El Prado, Huanacaxtle, Betty and Veteranos, nevertheless Calerita is the one goal to have been drilled to this point. The close to floor historic Inferred Useful resource on the Calerita prospect incorporates 3.7 Mt at 0.65 g/t Au for roughly 77,000 oz of gold6, which is taken into account to be open alongside strike and down dip.
Whereas the 2011 useful resource is taken into account by GR Silver Mining to be a historic useful resource, the Firm considers the useful resource estimate as being related and dependable, contemplating an absence of great further exploration work since its launch. A key parameter within the historic useful resource is the utilization of a US$1,200/oz gold worth in comparison with a a lot larger present spot gold worth. A Certified Particular person (QP) can be required to overview the historic useful resource report and make suggestions to be able to confirm and improve it to a present useful resource. A QP has not carried out adequate work to categorise the historic estimate as present mineral sources. The Firm is treating the 2011 useful resource estimate as a historic estimate. The corporate plans to re-assess the work accomplished by earlier homeowners and outline the feasibility of further drilling, aiming at figuring out further near-surface mineralization.
The Plomosas, San Marcial and La Trinidad Tasks collectively signify a geological setting resembling the multi-million-ounce San Dimas Mining District which has traditionally produced greater than 600 Moz Ag and 11 Moz Au over a interval of greater than 100 years.
GR Silver Mining’s different initiatives are located in areas engaging for future discoveries and improvement in the identical neighborhood of Plomosas, La Trinidad and San Marcial within the Rosario Mining District. Following the acquisition of Marlin, GR Silver Mining controls a concession portfolio of over 1,000 km2, two beforehand producing mines absolutely permitted for future developments and a complete mixed 75 km of constructions with area proof of 24 Ag-Au veins in historic previous workings.
