Silver X Mining Corporation ("Silver X")

On 2 June 2022 Silver X announced the results of a new independent NI 43-101 Technical Report for its 100% owned Nueva Recuperada silver-polymetallic project in Huancavalica, Peru. The Technical Report includes an updated inferred mineral resource estimate of 14.9 MT at 162.65 g/t Ag, 2.54% Pb and 2.50% Zn, an increase of 104% from those reported in Silver X's previous Technical Report filed on 3 May 2021. These additional resources will provide additional feed to the Nueva Recuperada processing plant which was recently upgraded to 720 tonnes per day.

During April 2022 the Company agreed to convert its convertible debenture to Silver X into common shares of Silver X and as a result will become Silver X's largest shareholder with 13.9%. TSX approval has been received and the transaction is expected to close shortly.
