Silver Wolf Announces 37 g/t Gold and 7.6% Zinc over 0.70 meters from On-Going Surface Sampling Program

Share this article

Silver Wolf Exploration Ltd. (OTCQB: SWLFF) (TSX-V: SWLF) (“Silver Wolf” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received the assay results from one hundred and fourteen (114) grab/chip samples collected during the on-going surface sampling program at the Ana Maria Property, located 21 kilometres (km) northwest of the City of Gómez Palacio and the adjacent City of Torreón. The property consists of 9 mining concessions encompassing a total of 2,549 hectares (ha) in the well-known Mexican silver belt, adjacent to claims owned by Penoles.

“We continue to execute on our exploration plan as we develop our understanding of the Ana Maria Property using the CRD model developed by Dr. Peter Megaw” said Peter Latta, President. “The results of these samples confirm the mineralized skarn structure previously identified in September. The high-grade channel samples, taken over a cross section of an underground level accessed from surface, provides an indication of the key geological features that host high grade mineralization in the El Sarnoso area. This gives us more confidence that the other areas of the large skarn structure could host similar mineralization providing the basis for a significant new discovery. In the southern claim, the extremely high-grade zinc and lead mineralization along with the high-grade silver values as well as the recently discovered historical workings indicate the potential for a carbonate replacement deposit. This aligns well with the hub and spoke theory created by the El Sarnoso intrusion. We will layer in data from the recently started geophysical survey to finalize our drill targets for later this year. Finally, we have submitted an application to more than double our land package in the area.”

Ana Maria Exploration Work
The Ana Maria Central claim, know as the La Recompensa claim, is shown in Figures 1 with the location of samples that have assays of zinc grades greater than 1% from this set of sample results. These channel samples are listed with the assay results and corresponding widths in Table 1. The numbers listed in the figures correspond to the sample number in the full list available on our website and in the abbreviated table. Figure 2 shows the development of a skarn structure underground from a plan view, represented by the iron oxides (hematite, magnetite, jarosite) and weak veinlet of white calcite. Gold and zinc grades are shown from the channel sampling. The Ana Maria South claim, known as the El Soldado claim, is shown in Figure 3 with location of samples with lead or zinc grades greater than 1%. These grab samples are listed with the assays results in Table 2. The numbers listed in the figures correspond to the sample number in the full list available on our website and in the abbreviated table. Historic workings where recently discovered in the claim indicating historic small-scale mining.

Silver Wolf has been following a structured approach to exploration, as laid out in the NI 43-101 technical report as filed on SEDAR, which consists of field mapping, sampling, LIDAR and hyperspectral imaging. In addition, a geophysical survey, performed by Terraquest, using electromagnetic methods has started and is ongoing. With the completion of the geophysical survey in early Q1, the Silver Wolf team will interpret the data to finalize the drill targets planned for 2022.

Highlights from Ana Maria Central and Ana Maria South are indicated in the tables below. The complete list of the samples are available at this link.

Silver Wolf has updated the mineral contouring maps presented in the September 27, 2021 new release with the additional sampling data as shown in Figures 4 through 8. These maps show the intensity and extent of the respective element being mapped. The grade contours represent anomalies, that, when overlayed with anomalies generated in the upcoming geophysical surveys, will provide a basis for prioritizing drill targets.

Sampling and Assay Methods
Grab samples are selective in nature, and do not necessarily reflect the general geology of the Ana Maria property. True widths cannot be determined with the channel sample information as presented. Samples were submitted to the SGS Laboratory facility in Durango, Mexico. Gold is assayed by fire assay with an AA finish. Multi-element analyses are completed using SGS ICP14B methods. Any copper, manganese or iron samples exceeding 10,000 ppm (1%) are assayed using SGS ICP90Q methods. SGS is an ISO9001 certified laboratory.
