Gainey Intersects Near-Surface Mineralization Over 70 Meters of 1.14 g/t Au Eq at La Nueva Victoria, Mexico

Rafael Gallardo, Senior Geologist of Minera Cascabel S.A. de C.V., who is leading the drill program, commented, “the results that we have received for the first drill hole are very encouraging and I look forward to the results from the other two holes designed to target this zone. The near-surface Au-Ag mineralization we have encountered is typical of epithermal low-sulphidation type deposits found in the area.”

Silver Bull Provides Exploration Update

Silver Bull recently commenced an exploration program to target potential sulphide mineralization at depth believed to be underneath and adjacent to, the main zone of mineralization already defined at Sierra Mojada. Deep structures are thought to be the conduits from which the shallow mineralization seen on the project has been emplaced, and are the targets of this program. A number of drill holes have previously intercepted structurally controlled sulphide mineralization such as drill hole “B11144”, which intercepted 8.45 meters at 17% zinc, 5.45% lead, and 60g/t silver starting at 193 meters. In addition, recent underground mapping and sampling identified another area of structurally controlled sulphide mineralization with underground channel samples returning grades up to 690g/t silver, 15.25% zinc, 4.8% lead, and 1% copper.

Southern Silver is well funded to continue its programs and we look forward to continuance of a long and fruitful relationship in the development of the Property after earn-in and establishment of a joint venture for the exploitation of the Resource.”

Alset Announces Amendment to Financing Terms, Outlines Work Program in Mexico

Tim Oliver, President of Alset commented: “After we announced the initial private placement we took another look at our work programs. We’ve now refined our plans and have revised the costs for the screening and resource definition drilling downwards. A combination of low drilling costs and the decision to limit resource definition drilling to the three most attractive salars, should allow a lower cost program than we initially planned for. We also discovered some valuable new information regarding the extensive inventory of sediment samples from prior investigations, and the history of commercial salt production from pumped brine in three of the seven salars. If our programs are successful, we hope to come back to the market for another raise at a higher price than the current private placement.”

Primero Provides Exploration Update; Black Fox Deep Central Zone Expanded to the West; Vein Extensions at San Dimas and Promising Lechuguilla Concession Results

“I am exceptionally pleased with the results achieved by our Black Fox and San Dimas exploration teams,” stated Ernest Mast, President and Chief Executive Officer. “At Black Fox, the Deep Central Zone is now delivering production ore and we have successfully identified additional high-grade mineralization to the west. At San Dimas, it is reassuring to see that our high-grade veins can continue to be extended with similar or greater widths than currently being mined. And as we look regionally at San Dimas, onto our concession not covered by the Silver Purchase Agreement I am optimistic about the initial results from the Causitas vein which has the potential to augment current mill feed given its proximity to an existing main road. The Causitas area, located in the Lechuguilla concession, is highly prospective and I look forward to announcing additional exploration results from a drilling program from this area before year-end.”
