Silver Bull Intersects 17 Meters of Sulphide Mineralization Grading 301G/T Silver & 1.75% Copper, Including 4 Meters at 502G/T Silver and 2.14% Copper, on the Sierra Mojada Project, Coahuila, Mexico

Tim Barry, President, CEO and director of Silver Bull states, “We are very pleased with the continued excellent results from our underground drill program in the sulphide zone. The high grade silver-copper mineralization seems to be hosted along favorable bedding horizons that have been steepened by an over lying thrust fault. Both the thrust fault and the favorable bedding horizons can be traced for over 5 kilometers along the entire deposit and suggests there is significant potential to expand the high grade silver-copper mineralization by targeting these geological features. In addition recent channel samples in two new zones of very high grade zinc sulphide mineralization grading up to 30% zinc identified in recently reconditioned underground workings sit along trend to the west of the current drill program (announced 10 January 2018) and suggest significant scope to expand high grade zinc mineralization into this areas. Work is currently underway to identify drill pads to target these areas. Continued results from the drill program are expected out over the next month.”
