25, 2021 – Los Reyes Drill Program Progress
Fig. 1 – Present and Accomplished Drill Holes – Location Abstract
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Prime Mining Corp. (“Prime” or the “Firm”) (TSX-V: PRYM, OTCQB: PRMNF, Frankfurt: A2PRDW) is happy to supply a drilling replace on its 100% owned Los Reyes Gold-Silver Challenge (“Los Reyes”) situated within the State of Sinaloa, Mexico. The Firm’s 15,000 metre (“m”) Section 1 diamond drill program started in December. The drill rig rely on the Challenge has been elevated to deal with logistical, geographic and COVID-19-related challenges, in order that the Firm can preserve its beforehand communicated targets of finishing Section 1 drilling earlier than onset of the wet season in mid-August, completion of a brand new geological useful resource mannequin throughout the wet season hiatus after which provoke an aggressive Section 2 drilling program in This fall 2021.
“With 5 drill rigs now on website, we anticipate to shortly make up for preliminary delays in drilling progress that occurred at Los Reyes. To-date, ten core holes have been accomplished and are at varied phases of preparation and evaluation. Shipments of recent drill core at the moment are being made weekly to the assay lab,” acknowledged Daniel Kunz, Prime Mining Corp.’s Chief Govt Officer.
At present, two drill contractors are working two man-portable drills, two track-mounted drills and one rubber-tire-mounted drill rig. As well as, the 2 track-mounted drills are geared up with instruments designed to extract oriented drill core to assist geologists decide the localized strike and dip of constructions controlling the mineralization.

Determine 1 reveals a plan map of historic, proposed, in-progress and accomplished Section 1 drill gap areas for the eight identified useful resource areas at Los Reyes.
Six of the finished core holes are situated within the Zapote South deposit and vary in focused drill gap depth from 65m to 190m. These drill holes are designed to: broaden the in-pit assets alongside strike and down dip; purchase geological information from core, the place solely RC information exists; infill areas to improve measured and indicated assets from inferred; and supply silver assay information absent from elements of the historic database. Drilling is continuous within the Zapote area.
Three core holes have been accomplished within the Noche Buena deposit and vary in depth from 150m to 160m. This drilling is designed to broaden the in-pit assets alongside strike and down dip. Drilling is continuous within the Noche Buena area.
Drilling just lately started on the San Miguel East deposit, the place the primary drill gap is testing mineralization at depths of as much as 300m.
A single deep drill gap has been accomplished within the Guadalupe East deposit space and a second drill gap from the identical pad is presently underway. Drill holes focusing on this accretion are deliberate to exceed 350m in depth, with the primary gap ending at 467m. This drilling is designed to focus on deeper sections at Guadalupe East for greater grade materials. It’s believed that historic drilling on this deposit did not intersect the interpreted optimum boiling stage stratigraphy for higher-grade zones that may happen in deposits like Los Reyes. This area gives nice alternative for underground useful resource potential.
Along with diamond core drilling, ongoing work consists of discipline mapping, trench sampling, rock alteration evaluation and interpretation and re-logging of all historic drill core. The complete program, together with Section 1 drilling, is to develop a complete geological and structural mannequin for use within the subsequent Los Reyes mineral useful resource replace. Ongoing work in help of the exploration program consists of:
- growing entry to new areas by re-habilitating current entry roads and trails;
- outlining new areas for exploration by mapping and sampling areas that exhibit high-grade gold and silver potential;
- growing the land place at Los Reyes;
- constructing infrastructure for securing water sources; and,
- offering logistics and drilling help.
The Firm has created the muse to help the five-drill program together with building of logging and sampling services and coaching of geologists for oriented-core logging.
Affect of COVID-19 on 2021 Plans
The security of our workers and the communities inside which we function is of elementary significance Prime. To-date now we have had minimal affect from the virus. We proceed to take all cheap measures to mitigate its potential affect and results on our exploration and growth actions. COVID-19 nonetheless has the potential to delay our plans. We stay dedicated to the long-term security of all our stakeholders together with workers and host-communities.
Group Assist and Social Duty
The Los Reyes mission area has entered the dry season and the water wanted to help each the native communal land holder’s livestock and our drilling actions, is turning into much less out there. As a part of its social duty, the Firm has constructed a number of small floor retaining ponds for group livestock to assist alleviate the dearth of stream in native streams and arroyos.
Nicely-funded for 2021
With a money stability of roughly C$6M, Prime entered 2021 nicely financed to proceed with the present exploration plan by the second quarter. As well as, the Firm has quite a few deeply in-the-money warrants, expiring in August 2021, which upon train may present a further C$6M.
QA/QC Protocols and Sampling Procedures
High quality management of the sampling program consists of the insertion of reference requirements and blanks in addition to reject duplicate evaluation to observe the integrity of assay outcomes. All samples are saved till picked up by Bureau Veritas Minerals and transported to its laboratory in Durango, Mexico. Samples are then dried, crushed, cut up and pulp samples are ready for evaluation. Gold is decided by hearth assay with an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) end, and silver plus 34 different components by multi-acid digestion and ICP end, over-limits of gold and silver by hearth assay and gravimetric end. Bureau Veritas is an ISO/IEC accredited laboratory.

Los Reyes Gold and Silver Challenge
Los Reyes is a district scale low sulfidation epithermal gold-silver mission situated in a prolific mining area of Mexico. Over $20M in exploration, engineering and prefeasibility research have been spent on the mission over 2 1/2 a long time by earlier operators with growth plans being held again on account of declining gold costs. Historic information coupled with an current and just lately up to date useful resource estimate has offered ample understanding to fast-track the mission to manufacturing. Nonetheless, there’s substantial useful resource enlargement upside primarily based on open extensions of identified deposits, a number of untested excessive precedence exploration targets, and solely 40% of the identified constructions systematically explored leaving 10 kilometres of untested strike size. Potential for important progress of the useful resource stays robust.
Present Measured and Indicated pit-constrained oxide mineral assets embrace 19.8 million tonnes (‘mt’) containing 633,000 ounces of gold at 1.0 g/t and 16,604,000 ounces of silver at 26.2 g/t plus a further 7.1 mt Inferred containing 179,000 ounces gold at 0.78 g/t and 6,831,000 ounces silver at 30 g/t.
