Vancouver, British Columbia - March 14, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) SilverCrest Metals Inc. (TSXV: SIL.VNYSE American: SILV) ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an updated mineral resource estimate for the Las Chispas Property, located in Sonora, Mexico, effective February 8, 2019 (the "Third Mineral Resource Estimate" or "February 2019 Resources"). The infill drilling program at Las Chispas has delineated an initial Indicated Mineral Resource estimate of 1.0 million tonnes grading 6.98 grams per tonne ("gpt") gold (or "Au") and 710.6 gpt silver (or "Ag"), or 1,234 gpt silver equivalent ("AgEq"; based on 75 (Ag):1 (Au), defined in the table below), containing 39.8 million ounces of AgEq. Inferred Mineral Resources are estimated at 3.6 million tonnes grading 3.32 gpt Au and 332.5 gpt Ag, or 581 gpt AgEq, containing 68.1 million ounces of AgEq. Of the 30 known veins in the district, ten veins were included in the updated resource estimate: Babicanora, Babicanora Hangingwall (HW), Babicanora Footwall (FW), Babicanora Norte, Babi Sur, Granaditas, Las Chispas, Giovanni (including La Blanquita and Giovanni Mini), William Tell, and Luigi. For comparative purposes, please refer to the technical reports titled "Technical Report and Mineral Resource Estimate for the Las Chispas Property, Sonora, Mexico" effective February 12, 2018, as amended May 9, 2018 (the "Maiden Resource Report") and "Technical Report and Updated Mineral Resource Estimate for the Las Chispas Property, Sonora Mexico", effective September 13, 2018 (the "Second Resource Report").

The Third Mineral Resource Estimate is based on the following: (1) 61 additional drill holes in the Babicanora Vein, including Area 51 zone, Babicanora HW and Babicanora FW, (2) infill drilling of Babicanora Vein including Area 51, (3) reporting separately the Babicanora FW and Babicanora HW veins from the Babicanora Vein, (4) discovery of the Babi Sur Vein with 39 drill holes, (5) expansion of the Babicanora Norte Vein with 18 additional holes, and 6) a change to a minimum vein width (true) of 0.5 metres, down from 1.5 metres, which has increased the grade primarily in the Babicanora Norte Vein with an estimated true width of 0.85 metres, which will be diluted when applying mining parameters as part of the upcoming Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA").


N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng and CEO, remarked, "Less than three years ago we first started drilling the Las Chispas Property and we are now announcing our third resource estimate, including our first Indicated Resource Estimate. We are particularly excited about the high-grade resources delineated at the Babicanora (including HW), Babicanora FW and Babicanora Norte Veins. These three adjacent veins cumulatively host Indicated Resources of 1.0 Million tonnes grading 1,234 gpt AgEq (39.8 million ounces of AgEq). These high-grade resources are near surface and conceptually can be developed using the same underground infrastructure, which may be a key driver of the economics for the project.

This Third Mineral Resource Estimate will be used to finalize the ongoing PEA planned for release in Q2, 2019. The Company will continue exploration with seven core drills focused on infill drilling to upgrade additional inferred resources into the indicated category and five core drills testing up to five new vein prospects in H1, 2019. SilverCrest continues to move forward on two paths; 1) work on critical studies to de-risk the project in order to make a construction decision by H1, 2020, and 2) continue to build value with the highly successful exploration program to test the other 20 veins on the property to potentially expand the resource base."

Please refer to "Technical Report and Updated Mineral Resource Estimate for the Las Chispas Property, Sonora Mexico", effective September 13, 2018, for detailed information on the Las Chispas Area veins.

The mineral resource estimate is based on the Company's phase I, II, and III exploration programs from March 2016 to February 8, 2019 and is classified as an Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource. The effective date for the Third Mineral Resource Estimate is February 8, 2019. Depending on the vein, drill sections were spaced 25 to 75 metres along strike, with intercepts on each section at 25 to 50 metres apart down dip. The most significant component of the data, collected and validated by SilverCrest between September 14, 2018 and February 8, 2019, are results from an additional 136 drill holes (35,035 metres). Since the startup of the Phase I exploration program in March 2016, a total of 440 drill holes (117,198 metres), 8,984 (7,212 metres) underground channel samples, and 2,895 dump samples have been completed and analyzed, which comprise the database up to February 8, 2019. A majority of the resource is in unmined areas with only the Las Chispas and William Tell veins being partially mined out and voids (stopes) being accounted for in the resource estimation. This release uses the previously announced resource estimation for the Las Chispas Area veins as noted in the table above. Details of the drill assays, surface and underground sampling results can be found in various press releases from March 2, 2016 to February 25, 2019, and available on the Company's website. The resource remains open in several directions depending on which vein is considered. A Technical Report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") will be filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com within 45 days.

The Third Mineral Resource Estimate is based on the following key assumptions. A specific gravity of 2.55 was used based on test work. Veins were modelled to capture mineralization grade of 150 gpt AgEq or greater. For the veins in the Babicanora Area (78% of the updated resource ounces), a minimum of 0.5 metres true width from drill hole intercepts was used to create vein shapes for modeling. For the Las Chispas Area, the true widths are variable (1 to 5 metres) for creating vein shapes for modeling as presented and estimated in the September 2018 updated resource. Grade capping (top cut) of silver and gold grades are at 96.78 to 99.6 percentile depending on the vein and mineral domain. Specifically, Area 51, as part of the Babicanora Vein has a top cut at the 98 percentile with a cap of 9,740 gpt for silver and a cap of 102.2 gpt for gold. Raw data was composited to 0.5 metres for all veins. A 2 metre by 2 metre by 2 metre block size was used for interpolation based on geological constraints and potential future mining method. Resource volumes have been constrained by the vein models. Variography, ordinary kriging and inverse distance squared (ID2) were used to create both silver and gold block models. Block models were classified into Inferred and Indicated Resources according to appropriate criteria based on geologic constraints, sample sets, and search radii.

The Third Mineral Resource Estimate is focused on an estimated 8.0 kilometres of approximately 20 known kilometres of cumulative vein strike length in the district. As planned, the Company will continue the Phase III drilling up to the end of 2019, which will focus on expansion and infill drill holes. Drilling priorities over the next nine months are: (1) continued infill drilling the Babicanora, Babicanora FW and Babicanora Norte Veins for resource re-categorization for upcoming preliminary feasibility study ("PFS"), (2) initiate definition drilling on the Unnamed and La Victoria veins in the Babicanora Area, (3) initiate definition drilling on the several new veins and veins to depth in the Las Chispas Area, and (4) initiate definition drilling for the Chiltepin veins northeast of the Las Chispas Area. The Company intends to provide another updated resource estimate, with resource re-categorization, and deliver a PFS in Q1, 2020. There is no certainty that Inferred Mineral Resources will be converted to the Measured and Indicated categories through further drilling.

Qualified Assurance Program and Quality Control Measures ("QA/QC")
SilverCrest has implemented QA/QC protocols including the insertion of duplicate, blank and standard samples in all drill holes and underground sampling. The samples were submitted directly to the ALS Chemex in Hermosillo, Mexico, and North Vancouver, BC, Canada, for preparation and analysis. P. James F. Barr, P. Geo., Senior Geologist and independent Qualified Person, most recently visited the Las Chispas Property on October 16, 2018, and between February 10 and 11, 2019. Core was reviewed and independent verification samples were collected and will be reported in the Technical Report. Independent Qualified Person believes that all QA/QC work completed from February 2018 to February 2019 has been done to adequate standards.

New #Lithium Supply - From Pilot Plants to Commercialization; Companies Ramping up for Global Demand of the Future; (TSXV: $ETMC.V) (OTC: $EEMMF) (NYSE: $SQM) (TSXV: $NLC.V) (OTCQX: $NTTHF) (TSX: $LAC.TO) (NYSE: $LAC)

New #Lithium Supply - From Pilot Plants to Commercialization; Companies Ramping up for Global Demand of the Future; (TSXV: $ETMC.V) (OTC: $EEMMF) (NYSE: $SQM) (TSXV: $NLC.V) (OTCQX: $NTTHF) (TSX: $LAC.TO) (NYSE: $LAC)




Point Roberts WA, Delta BC – March 4, 2019 - Investorideas.com, an investor news source covering lithium stocks, issues a snapshot looking at key trends including growing demand due to EV growth, new extraction technology and strong financials from industry leaders, creating renewed investor optimism.


Lithium has been in high discussion following the strong financials recently reported by lithium giant Albemarle Corporation, setting the stage for a bullish mindset for the lithium sector.

Sociedad QuĂ­mica y Minera de Chile S.A. (NYSE: SQM) also recently reported their Q4 Earnings call in which Ricardo RamosChief Executive Officer of SQM commented on the company’s 2018 year and the state of lithium moving into 2019.

“Our high-grade sales volume in ESPN, high-grade iodine and high grade average price of lithium contributed to our 2018 results. The Lithium market is surrounded, as you know, by positive news. Full electric vehicle penetration level reached approximately 2%, and these rates are expected to grow probably in the future. Demand growth in 2018 surprised us again, surpassing 27%, and it's expected to grow rates above 20% in 2019,” said Ramos.

As the lithium leaders pave the way for bullish sentiment in the sector, incumbent new sources of lithium are being developed by a select few players in the space advancing lithium brine projects.

E3 METALS CORP. (TSXV: ETMC) (OTC: EEMMF), a lithium development company with a property containing 6.7 Mt LCE inferred mineral resource in Alberta, announced a major milestone in the development of its proprietary extraction process, a key to their future positioning in the market.

Since its inception in 2017, E3 Metals has quadrupled its permit size, put out a maiden resource and subsequently tripled it, developed proprietary Ion Exchange Lithium Extraction Technology and advanced its lithium process closer to commercialization.

The Company is close to piloting its technology which converts oilfield brine into pure high-grade feedstock to be transformed into valuable lithium products, with optionality for hydroxide or carbonate.  

Summarized from the news:  E3 has enhanced performance of its proprietary Ion Exchange Lithium Extraction Technology, achieving higher lithium concentrations of up to 5367 mg/L lithium, compared to the previous level of 1498 mg/L. Average recovery was over 90%, confirming very high efficiency and greater than 99% impurity removal.

E3 Metals’ CEO Chris Doornbos stated, “This increase in concentration using our proprietary Extraction Technology is the key to unlocking the value of our vast, yet lower grade, resource. These results move us a significant step toward supporting E3’s goal of becoming an industry leading, low-cost producer of battery grade lithium products. We have demonstrated the ability to significantly increase our lithium concentration without using additional energy. The higher concentration means less volume to handle downstream from our lithium Extraction Technology and should reduce the energy, inputs and potentially the capital and operating costs required to generate lithium hydroxide. These results continually demonstrate an innovative and robust process developed by the University of Alberta supported by Green Centre Canada, with funding from Alberta Innovates.”

Neo Lithium Corp. (TSXV: NLC) (OTCQX: NTTHF) says it aims to be known as a “prominent new name in lithium brine exploration by virtue of its high quality 3Q Project and experienced team.” 

The Company recently announced that the lithium carbonate pilot plant built by the Instituto de Investigaciones Tecnologicas from Universidad de Concepcion, Chile has successfully arrived in Fiambala, Catamarca, Argentina. The Company’s engineers have started reassembling the Plant and expect to have it fully operational in late February for its Tres Quebradas lithium brine project in Catamarca Province, Argentina.

The Plant was previously successfully tested with synthetic brine in Chile and is going to start using brine from the 3Q Project, concentrated approximately to 4% lithium from 3Q Project pilot evaporation ponds to start pilot scale production of lithium carbonate at the Plant. Currently the designed annual capacity of the pilot ponds is over 500 tonnes of approximate 4% lithium brine per year, and the Plant has a designed capacity of 50 tonnes of lithium carbonate per year.

Lithium Americas Corp. (TSX: LAC) (NYSE: LAC), advancing its Cauchari-Olaroz lithium brine project in Jujuy, Argentina and Thacker Pass lithium claystone project in Nevada, USA to production just reported temporary disruptions in Argentina due to heavy rainfall. 

Also included in the update; “Following the release of the Preliminary Feasibility Study in August 2018, through development of a pilot plant in Reno, Nevada, the Company is considering the production of lithium hydroxide directly from lithium sulphate to provide added flexibility. Commissioning of the pilot plant is underway, with testing and optimization expected to commence in the near term.”

From pilot plants to full production, the lithium sector is ramping up for long term global demand. Incumbent lithium brine companies will be able to compete if they can keep their costs down and advance their extraction technologies, readying themselves for the EV highways of the future.

1.      The estimates in the table are considered to be amenable to underground extraction methods. The base case cut-off grade is 1.2% CuEq based on the formula CuEq = (Cu% x 0.825) + (Zn% x 0.302) + (Ag g/t x 0.004) + (Au g/t x 0.262). Mineral resources are not mineral reserves because the economic viability has not been demonstrated.

2.      Estimate assumes Mining (underground) US $34.00/t, Processing US $18.00/t, US G&A $10/t, copper price US $3.00/lb, zinc price US $1.25/t, gold price US $1350/oz, silver price US $17.00/oz, copper payable recovery 82.5%, zinc payable recovery 72.5%, silver payable recovery 45%, gold payable recovery 40%
3.      Effective date of resource estimate February 22nd, 2019
4.      Inferred mineral resources are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to the measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied.
5.      Assumptions used to derive the cut-off grades in order to meet the NI43-101 requirement for mineral resource estimates to demonstrate “reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction”. The cut-off grades to be used in the upcoming feasibility study may vary from those used to limit the mineral resources reported herein, as the inputs to that study are determined. No inference is implied in the changes to the assumptions used in the cut-off grade calculations from the prior mineral resource estimates as to what will be used in the upcoming feasibility, as those assumptions remain to be determined.

Updated Mineral Resource Metrics
·        38 new drill hole intersections through the Main and Esso deposits utilized to update the new mineral resource calculation (3 at Esso, 35 at Main);
·        2018 drilling successfully delineated additional mineral resources along the down-dip edge of Main, which remains open to further expansion; and
·        Drilling defined a large contiguous body of Measured resources at Main (Figure 1).

“The definition of an updated, robust and larger resource estimate is a significant milestone for the Company”, stated Rob Duncan, COO for Kutcho Copper. “Based on new drill hole data and an independent mineral resource estimation at Kutcho, we have expanded the mineral resources at Kutcho and demonstrated potential for further reserve growth in the upcoming Feasibility Study.”

High Priority Near Resource Targets
Four excellent targets exist on the Kutcho project that are located between, below or along strike from existing mineral resources (Figure 1). These targets represent high probability drill areas that could result in significant accretive value to the project;

1.    The Main-Sumac Gap identifies a 400 m by 380m panel between the Main and Sumac lenses that is untested by drilling. A conductive geophysical anomaly coincides with the area and is 360 m long. K003, the most eastern hole to intersect the Sumac lens and located on the western margin of the gap returned 5.12 m of 1.29% Cu, 0.49% Zn and 7 g/t Ag.

2.    Open Down Dip: Significant portions of all three lenses remain open down dip outside of current resources including over 36% of Main, 50% of Esso and 100% of Sumac.

3.    The Esso-West Expansion target lies 300 m west of the Esso deposit where 150m of a 1500 m long geophysical anomaly has been drill tested. Drilling returned several mineralized intercepts including 7.2 m of 2.0% Cu, 5.2% Zn and ~17 g/t Ag in hole E094B3. There remains 300 m of untested Kutcho horizon between hole E094B3 and Esso, along with an additional 1000 m of untested horizon to the west of hole E094B3. (Off western edge of map)

4.    Footwall Zone (FWZ) lies beneath the Main zone and represents a stacked massive sulphide horizon that is open in all directions. The last drill hole to the east and down dip intersected 1.5 m of 3.54% Cu, 6.94% Zn, 316.9 g/t Ag and 1.47 g/t Au in hole E057.

Mineral Resource Estimation Methodology
Mineral resource estimates are generated using a total of 362 drill holes at the Main deposit, 118 drill holes at the Esso deposit, and 29 drill holes in the vicinity of the Sumac deposit. Drill holes are collared from surface and extend to depths of 700m below surface in some areas. Mineral resource estimates are derived from three-dimensional block models with nominal block sizes measuring 5 x 2.5 x 5m (LxWxH).  Resource estimates were generated using drill hole sample assay results and the interpretation of geological models which relate to the spatial distribution of copper, zinc, gold and silver in the deposits. Interpolation characteristics were defined based on the geology, drill hole spacing, and geostatistical analysis of the data. The effects of potentially anomalous high-grade sample data, composited to 1 metre intervals, are controlled using both traditional top-cutting as well as limiting the distance of influence during block grade interpolation. Block grades are estimated using ordinary kriging and have been validated using a combination of visual and statistical methods to ensure they are appropriate representations of the underlying sample data. Resources in the Measured category are delineated with drill holes on a regular 25m pattern. Resources in the Indicated category are delineated with holes on a nominal 50m pattern and Inferred class resources extend to a maximum distance of 100m from a drill hole. It is assumed that the Kutcho deposits would be mined using underground extraction methods. Based on projected technical and economic parameters, the deposits form consistent zones of mineralization, above a projected base case cut-off threshold of 1.2%CuEq, that are considered to be amenable to underground mining methods.
