Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 8, 2024) - Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) ('SBMI' or 'the Company') is pleased to announce it is entering into a strategic business agreement (the "Agreement") with Countryman Investments Limited of British Columbia, Canada ("Countryman"). The Agreement provides that Countryman will provide financial, business development and mining opportunities to the Company. Countryman is an existing SBMI shareholder.

Mr. Dave Richardson, a principal of Countryman, has agreed to join SBMI's advisory board. Mr. Richardson has a long history in finance and business management, and will assist SBMI in implementing its business plan and expanding its business operations.

As the first phase in the implementation of the Agreement, SBMI intends to issue a convertible debenture (the "Debenture") in an amount up to $1,000,000.00 to willing investors ("Investors"), issuable in tranches of $1,000.00 with each tranche having 10,000 detachable warrants. Each warrant has a term of three years and is exercisable at $0.12, $0.14, and $0.16 for years 1, 2, and 3 respectively following the issuance of the Debenture. The Debenture will have a three year term and interest will run at a rate of 12% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears during year one and quarterly in arrears during years two and three. Interest will be paid to Investors in cash or in common shares of the Company, at SBMI's option.

Each Investor at any time can convert its portion of the Debenture, in whole or in part, into common shares of the Company. The conversion price shall be $0.08 during the first twelve months following issuance of the Debenture, $0.10 during the next twelve months of the term of the Debenture, and $0.12 during the final twelve months of the term of the Debenture (the "Conversion Price").

SBMI can force conversion of the Debenture, in whole or in part, if SBMI's closing price for its common shares exceeds $0.25 for a period of ten days. The Debenture can be prepaid by SBMI any time after twelve months from the issuance of the Debenture.

Countryman is a subscriber to the Debenture.

The Debenture is subject to regulatory and board approval.

The Agreement and the Debenture provide further financial stability to SBMI. They will enable the Company to complete work required by MSHA at the Buckeye Silver Mine in Arizona, to further work at the Washington Mine in Idaho this year, and to address other corporate matters.

In Arizona, the mill is MSHA approved and functioning properly. Mineralized material which had been stockpiled at the Buckeye Silver Mine is being transported to the mill and stockpiled material at the mill is being processed. The field team is carrying out the work required by MSHA at the Buckeye Silver Mine, which should take between one and three months to complete. Timber has been delivered to the Buckeye Mine Site for timbering. No new material can be extracted from the mine until the work is complete.

SBMI believes the Agreement and the Financing show that the value the Company has created is being recognized by significant stakeholders. It also gives increased depth to the company's strategic vision for the future.
