Almaden Exploration Drilling Hits 26.00 Meters of 1.93 g/t Gold Including 1.00 m of 27.50 g/t Gold Approximately 1.2 km South West of PFS Pit at the Ixtaca Project Mexico

J.D. Poliquin, chairman of Almaden stated, “These further results demonstrate the potential for an important new mineralised zone well outside of the PFS pit and resource area. These results also show the potential for further discoveries within the project area and for the Ixtaca mine plan to grow with continued exploration. Ongoing drilling will continue to seek more such zones even as the engineering work and the Feasibility Study progress.”

SilverCrest Discovers New High-Grade Vein at Las Chispas; 1.5 metres @ 23.96 gpt Au and 2,081 gpt Ag, or 3,879 gpt AgEq

N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng and CEO, remarked, “With this discovery of the Babicanora Norte Vein, we continue to show the increased potential for more near-surface high-grade mineralized veins. This is now the 11th high-grade vein we have discovered in the district. This vein is located adjacent and parallel to the Babicanora Vein which contains a majority of the maiden resource estimate. We recently identified this untested vein and strategically drilled it for high-grades which were discovered in our second drill hole (BAN18-02, intercepting 1.5 metres grading 9.11 gpt gold and 1,033.3 gpt silver, or 1,716 gpt AgEq*). This successful strategy required projecting the known high-grade footprint of the adjacent Babicanora Vein along with geologic constraints to the untested Babicanora Norte Vein. With six drills currently operating, we continue to aggressively drill-test the Babicanora Norte Vein and several other untested veins using the model of “Nature of Multiples”; that is, find one high-grade footprint in a vein and apply the same controls to the next nearby vein.”

IMPACT Silver Announces First Quarter 2018 Financial and Production Results

Fred Davidson, President and CEO, stated, “Silver prices reached its recent high in January 2018 at USD $17.54 an ounce but fell as the quarter progressed as the US dollar and interest rate started increasing. Nonetheless in Q1 our shares outperformed sector peers largely due to our exploration success at our sizable 357km2 land package, 5,000+ underground workings, and high potential exploration targets. The Company continues to believe its market capitalization remains undervalued given our production and exploration potential.”
