Silver Mountain Files NI 43-101 Technical Report on SEDAR for Its El Milagro Project
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 1, 2022) - Silver Mountain Resources Inc. (TSXV: AGMR) ("Silver Mountain", "AGMR" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the filing of a National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") compliant technical report on the El Milagro project (the "El Milagro Technical Report"). Situated approximately 40 km southeast of the Company's Reliquias concession block, the El Milagro project is straddling the boundary between the Huancavelica and Ayacucho regions of Peru.
The El Milagro Technical Report has an effective date of October 17, 2022, and was completed by Recursos Reservas y Evaluaciones Mineras S.A.C. ("RREMIN"), Lima, Peru at the request of Silver Mountain. The report titled, "NI 43-101 Technical Report for El Milagro Project, Huancavelica and Ayacucho Regions, Peru" has been filed on the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and will be posted on the Company's website at www.agmr.ca.
The purpose of the El Milagro Technical Report was to assess the geological potential of the El Milagro project area and to review the historic exploration work completed by previous owners.
Geologically, the project area is characterized by limestones of Triassic to Jurassic age, in contact with Tertiary-age volcanic successions and felsic subvolcanic stocks. Polymetallic Ag-Pb-Zn mineralization is exposed as several carbonate replacement bodies and in the form of tabular fracture fill. Previous project operators evaluated the potential of the area, including geological mapping, rock sampling and development of over 2500 m of underground workings. Additionally, 53 diamond drill holes with a total meterage of over 9800 m were completed from surface and from underground. The previous project owners identified polymetallic mineralization in three discrete mineralized bodies: Genoveva 1, Genoveva 2, and El Milagro. At a cut-off grade of 1% ZnEq, the NI 43-101 compliant Technical Report states the following historical resources in the inferred category: 873,250 t @ 2.01 oz/t Ag, 2.78 % Zn, and 1.1 % Pb.
After a thorough review of the recommendations given by RREMIN in the El Milagro Technical Report regarding the next exploration tasks at the El Milagro project, Silver Mountain will decide on the timing and scope of further evaluation of this prospect.

The Company also announces that it has granted to certain officer, directors and employees an aggregate of 5,460,000 options to acquire class A common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Options") pursuant to the Company's incentive stock option plan.
