VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 11, 2024 / Prismo Metals Inc. (“Prismo” or the “Company“) (CSE:PRIZ)(OTCQB:PMOMF) is pleased to announce that it has received commitments for 6,500,000 units of the Company (“Units“) at a price of $0.17 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,105,000 to be issued on a non-brokered private placement basis (the “Private Placement“). The total amount of the Private Placement has been committed to and the Company expects that the Private Placement will be fully subscribed at a closing expected to take place on or around June 18, 2024.

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share“) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share in the capital of the Company for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issue at an exercise price of $0.25.

Steve Robertson, President of Prismo Metals commented: “The recent strengthening in commodity prices has resulted in renewed interest from investors in exploration companies like ours. We are pleased to welcome several new incoming shareholders who will be participating in the Private Placement. Our priorities this year remain to start drilling at our Hot Breccia copper project located in the heart of the Arizona copper belt and to test the Palos Verdes vein at depth on our silver project of the same name in Mexico.”

Mr. Robertson added: “The anticipated exploration program at Hot Breccia will focus on diamond drilling five holes with an expected depth of 1,000 metres each, for a program total of 5,000 metres. The actual depth of each drill hole will be determined by the stratigraphy encountered. The exploration team would like to ensure the entire Paleozoic carbonate sequence, which are the most prospective host rock for mineralization, is intersected. Arrangements for the start of drilling will be underway once the final Bureau of Land Management (“BLM“) permit is fully in place, which is anticipated to occur in the near future.”

Regarding the Palos Verdes silver project in Mexico, Craig Gibson, Co-Founder and Chief Exploration Officer said: “Immediately following closing of the Private Placement, we will mobilize our drilling crew at our Palos Verdes for our next phase of drilling. We are planning to drill approximately 3,600 meters in ten holes to be completed in two phases. These holes will be drilled from Vizsla Silver Corp. concessions adjacent to the Palos Verdes concession and will target the Palos Verdes vein at depth. This drill program follows a recommendation presented by the Panuco Joint Technical Committee. The Joint Technical Committee is comprised of Prismo’s CXO Dr. Craig Gibson, Vizsla Silver’s VP Exploration Dr. Jesus Velador, and Dr. Peter Megaw.”

About Hot Breccia

The Hot Breccia property consists of 1,420 hectares 227 contiguous mining claims located in the world class Arizona Copper Belt between several very well-understood world-class copper mines including Morenci, Ray and Resolution (Figure 1). Hot Breccia shows many features in common with these neighboring systems, most prominently a swarm of porphyry dikes and series of breccia pipes containing numerous fragments of well copper-mineralized rocks mixed with fragments of volcanic and sedimentary derived from considerable depth. Prismo ran a ZTEM survey last year that identified a very large conductive anomaly directly beneath the breccia outcrops (Figures 2 and 3).

Sampling at the project has shown the presence of copper and gold mineralization associated with polymictic breccia that has brought fragments of sedimentary rocks and mineralization to the surface from depths believed to be 400-1,000 meters below the surface. Drilling of deep holes, possibly including a twin of an historical hole, is planned.

Gold mineralization ranging from anomalous values of 0.1-0.3 g/t to 28 g/t with local copper has also been encountered at the surface associated with dikes (see News Release of July 11, 2023).

Assay results from historical drill holes are unverified as the core has been destroyed, but information has been gathered from memos, photos and drill logs that contain some, but not all, of the assay results and descriptions.

About Palos Verdes

The Palos Verdes project is located in the historic Pánuco-Copala silver-gold district in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, approximately 65 kilometers NE of Mazatlán, Sinaloa, in the Municipality of Concordia. The Palos Verdes concession (claim) covers 700 meters of strike length of the Palos Verdes vein, a member of the north-easterly trending vein family located in the eastern part of the district outside of the area of modern exploration. Shallow drilling (<100m) conducted in 2018 on the Palos Verdes Vein was targeted 30 to 50 meters beneath largely barren vein outcrops and cut a well mineralized multistage vein two to seven metres wide with narrow intervals of high-grade precious metal values and subordinate base metals (see table of intercepts at www.prismometals.com ). This mineralization is open in all directions and the currently planned drilling program is designed to follow it along strike and to depth.

A geochemical sampling program conducted in late 2023 focused on narrow and most strongly mineralized portions of the vein was conducted along the exposed strike length of the Palos Verdes vein system. The best sample from that program assayed 930 g/t silver and 10.55 g/t gold with 15.4% zinc and 4.5% lead (2,605 g/t Ag/Eq) over 0.5 meters. Strongly anomalous values of precious metal and indicator elements occur above the mineralized shoot identified during drilling and also along the vein system further to the northeast. This area may indicate the presence of a second blind mineralized shoot that will also be tested by the deep drilling from Vizsla ground.

Table 1. Assay highlights for Palos Verdes sampling program.

The Company completed its third drill campaign last year with 2,923 meters drilled in 15 holes with high grade mineralization encountered in several holes. Assays previously reported from this program include the highest-grade intercept recorded at the project in hole PV-23-25 with 102 g/t gold, 3,100 g/t silver and 0.26% zinc over 0.5 meters, or 11,520 g/t silver equivalent (see News Release of July 27, 2023). The last eight drill holes in the program, PV-23-26 to PV-23-33 were drilled to test the limits of the mineralized shoot in the western portion of the vein at depth and to the east of the NW fault.

Holes PV-23-27 and PV-23-29 to PV-23-33 tested the mineralized shoot to define the limits of mineralization and cut variably mineralized vein material (Table 1). The angle of inclination of several holes was very steep at -75 degrees, and drilling from the Vizsla Silver ground will provide more useful information.

Holes PV-23-26 and PV-23-28 explored to the east of the NW fault and did not cut significant mineralization but provided valuable information for the next holes that need to be drilled deeper from the adjoining Vizsla Silver ground.
