Drilling Permits on Potential High-Grade Silver Targets

Vancouver, British Columbia–(June 6, 2024) - Silver One Resources Inc. (TSXV: SVE) (OTCQX: SLVRF) (FSE: BRK1) (“Silver One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the discovery of additional copper and silver prospects with up to 1,240 g/t Ag and 7.79% Cu in selected samples (see Table 1, Figures 1 and 2 below and the Company’s news release of May 15, 2024). These samples were collected in the southern portion of the property where multiple copper and silver showings suggest potential for the discovery of porphyry related copper-silver mineralization. This part of the project is immediately northeast of the Freeport McMoRan Miami copper mine and the recently discovered Ocelot porphyry project being actively explored by BHP (see Figure 3 below).

Additionally, the structures thought to host the large silver vein fragments (weighing up to 417 pounds and estimated to contain up to 70% silver) are permitted for drilling (see Company’s news release of May 15, 2024 and Figure 4 below). The company is targeting Q3 2024 for this drill program.


  • New copper showings on recently acquired claims highlight the potential for porphyry related copper mineralization immediately along strike from the Freeport McMoRan Miami copper mine and the recently discovered Ocelot porphyry copper project being explored by BHP.
    • Highly anomalous copper values in selected samples range between 0.1% to 7.79% and silver between 1 g/t and 1,240 g/t containing locally abundant lead and zinc in veins and breccias.
  • New silver fragments discoveries reported in the company’s news release of May 15, 2024 extend the area of potential silver vein mineralization for 600+ metres to the west of the previously discovered 417 lb (189 kg) angular and unabraded vein fragment that was estimated to contain over 70% silver and an 18.7 lb (8.5 kg) specimen assaying 459,000 g/t (14,688 oz/t) silver (see news release dated February 5, 2020 and May 15, 2024).
  • The project is permitted for drilling on these potentially high-grade silver targets (See Figure 4).

Greg Crowe, President and CEO of Silver One commented: “These additional strongly anomalous copper and silver select samples collected from numerous showings, along with previously collected samples, highlight the wide distribution of copper-silver mineralization throughout the southern portion of the Phoenix Silver project. The property lies to the northeast of Freeport McMoRan’s copper producing Miami Complex and BHP’s Ocelot porphyry copper exploration project.

Phoenix Silver lies at the northeast margin of a 30+ km long porphyry copper and silver belt and has excellent potential to host high-grade silver mineralization as well as porphyry related copper-silver mineralization. Some of the deposits in the area that have reported silver associated with copper mineralization include the Pinto, Miami, Silver King and Silver Queen mines (see USGS Porphyry Copper Deposit Model – Scientific Investigations report 2010-5070-B).

A drill permit has been secured to test structures believed to host the very high-grade silver vein fragments (see Company News Release of March 2, 2023). Emphasis will be placed on the 417 vein structure, where numerous high-grade silver fragments have been located along 600+ meters of this east-west trending system. These veins are thought to be the host to the angular and unabraded fragment weighing 417 lb (189 kg) and estimated by specific gravity methods to contain 70% silver. Assays of smaller fragments returned up to 459,000 g/t (14,688 oz/T) silver (see Company News Release of February 5, 2020 and May 15, 2024).

The Phoenix Silver project continues to surprise, not only in the size and distribution of mineralized areas, but also in the high copper and silver grades associated with the mineralized systems. What started as a rare opportunity in potentially identifying veins of extremely rich silver mineralization, has now expanded to include large areas of copper-silver porphyry potential. The Phoenix Silver project is truly a unique and exceptional exploration opportunity.”

Elevated copper and silver values with abundant manganese, iron oxides and local base metals (lead and zinc) shown in Table 1 above, are representative of the mineralization in veins, hydrothermal breccias, and fracture systems that are widespread throughout the southern part of the property. These values along with elevated molybdenum (to 239.9 ppm in sample 41558) and local chlorite hydrothermal alteration suggest the presence of intrusive centered hydrothermal systems and are distal manifestations potentially related to the margins of porphyry copper deposits. Examples of these manifestations can be seen at the Silver Queen and Silver King mines which are the surface expression of the Magma and Resolution copper deposits, and the Old Dominion vein which is the surface expression of the Ocelot porphyry copper discovery. Polymetallic epithermal veins similar to those found in the property (see Fig 1) also occur in the periphery of other copper deposits such as Butte Montana.

Silver One plans to drill the high-grade silver targets. It will also continue the geologic reconnaissance mapping and sampling of the new claims staked in October and December 2023.

Analytical and QA/QC

Thirty five chip and dump select samples were collected by Company geologists during property visits conducted in March and April 2024. Samples varying in size from approximately 2 kg to 5 kg were submitted to Skyline Assayers and Laboratories (“Skyline”) in Tucson, AZ, USA (ISO accredited Laboratory, certificate #2353.01 ISO/IEC 170025:2017) for sample preparation and analysis. Samples were analyzed by ICP/MS for forty-one elements with aqua regia digestion. Over limit copper, lead and zinc were analyzed by ore-grade four acid digestion ICP/OES (0.5 g sample). Gold as well as overlimit silver were analyzed by 30 g FA/Gravimetric assay). Skyline inserts blanks, standards and includes duplicate analyses to ensure proper sample preparation and equipment calibration.

About Silver One

Silver One is focused on the exploration and development of quality silver projects. The Company owns a 100%-interest in its flagship project, the past-producing Candelaria Mine located in Nevada. Potential reprocessing of silver from the historic leach pads at Candelaria provides an opportunity for possible near-term production. Additional opportunities lie in unmined historic resources as well as in previously identified high-grade silver intercepts down-dip, which can potentially increase the substantive silver mineralization along-strike from the two past-producing open pits.

The Company owns 636 lode claims and five patented claims on its Cherokee project located in Lincoln County, Nevada, host to multiple silver-copper-gold vein systems, traced to date for over 11 km along-strike.

Silver One also owns a 100% interest in the Silver Phoenix Project. The Silver Phoenix Project is a very high-grade native silver prospect, recently permitted for drilling, which lies within the “Arizona Silver Belt,” immediately adjacent to the prolific copper producing area of Globe, Arizona.
