Almaden Infill Drilling Confirms Main Ixtaca Zone, Hits 25.00 Meters of 4.08 g/t Gold and 91.7 g/t Silver and 32.50 Meters of 2.02 g/t Gold and 109.2 g/t Silver All Within 184.00 Meters of 1.25 g/t Gold, 54.0 g/t Silver

J.D. Poliquin, chairman of Almaden stated, “These results again show the continuity of the Ixtaca Zone gold silver mineralisation. We are focussed on developing the Ixtaca deposit into a significant precious metals producer in Mexico, and engineering work and studies on a Feasibility Study are progressing well. We are at the top of a fully preserved epithermal system and over the next several months exploration drilling will also test for additional vein zones beneath alteration elsewhere on the project.”

Golden Goliath – San Timoteo Preliminary Report 2017

The Company is pleased to announce that it has now received the preliminary report from the 2017 work program on its 100% owned San Timoteo property, located in Chihuahua, Mexico. The program was carried out by a very experienced, independent consulting geologist with intimate knowledge of the property. The program was an expansion of the work conducted in 2016, but with a focus on structural geology and mineralization. It was designed to strengthen and increase the number of drill targets to be tested in the next major drilling program that will include surface and underground drilling to test targets property wide.

Defiance Commences 5000 Metre Drill Program Targeting New Silver Shoots

“We are excited to begin the first systematic drill program testing the Veta Grande vein east of San Acacio. Our geological model indicates that with the Veta Grande tilting to the south east, historic miners did not recognize the potential of the vein along strike. If our model is correct, we could dramatically expand the district’s silver footprint. With two diamond drills operating, we look forward to a steady flow of drill results over the next three months.” stated Roy Bonnell, President and CEO of Defiance Silver Corp.

Auxico Announces Encouraging Metallurgical Results for the Campanillas Mine

Auxico Resources Canada Inc. is pleased to announce encouraging metallurgical results from a 2.095 kg sample (2,095 g) taken from the volcanic breccia hostrock material in the footwall of the Campanillas Mine, which is located in the north-east corner of the Zamora Property. The sample contains 1.98 kg/t of silver (1,980 g/t) and 2.01 g/t of gold. This sample was treated by the Centre for Mineral Technology and Plastics in Thetford Mines in order to optimize the metallurgical extraction of both gold and silver. The recovery of gold was 71.60% and 92.9% for silver, as a result of processing this material by gravity and flotation methods.

Corex Receives First Proceeds from Gold Sales at Santana Property

SilverCrest Announces High Metallurgical Test Recoveries For Las Chispas

N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President and CEO, remarked, “Another milestone has been completed for the Las Chispas Property which continues to show increasing significance as an emerging high-grade silver-gold district. Historically, there were five mills in the district before 1930, four cyanidation and one flotation, which gave us a good indication that the metallurgy would be amenable to standard processing methods. This indication has now been confirmed with testwork showing excellent metal recoveries. The Las Chispas mineralization is similar to that of the nearby producing Santa Elena Mine (constructed by SilverCrest Mines Inc., the predecessor of SilverCrest Metals), which has current metal recoveries of 90% or greater for both silver and gold. With this metallurgical milestone now behind us, we can more confidentially plan for our Las Chispas maiden resource in Q1 2018.”

N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President and CEO, remarked, “Channel sampling in the newly rehabilitated historic underground workings in the Las Chispas Vein is defining continuous unmined areas with bonanza grades. Several of these channel results are within 30 metres of the recently announced drill hole LC17-45, which intercepted 1.9 metres of 8,803 gpt AgEq. This Bonanza Grade Area is easily accessible for potential bulk sampling and mining. This area is an example of the potential high value mineralization that we continue to systematically explore at the Property. We are driving our underground and surface programs at Las Chispas to deliver a maiden resource in Q1 2018.”
