Restarting the Past-Producing Clayton Silver Mine in Idaho

​Company Highlights

  • CMX Gold & Silver is an exploration and development mining company focused on revitalizing a past-producing mine to benefit from known mineralization and existing infrastructure.
  • The Clayton Silver Project has historically produced over two million tonnes of ore, and a stockpile of up to 1 million tonnes of rock remains on the property.
  • Sulphide Remediation Inc. has been contracted by CMX to process Clayton Silver Mine’s stockpile, allowing the company to generate cash flow in the short-term.
  • The previous miners operated for 50 years and followed a main vein system, which was sufficient for their goals. However, CMX believes other vein systems are present that will create additional opportunities, including on the newly staked lands.
  • A strong management team with decades of experience in the mining industry builds confidence for the project and the team’s ability to capitalize on the flagship asset.

​Overview

Exploring undeveloped land with the hopes of striking gold is a time-honored mining tradition, but it’s not the only way to create a profitable project. Restarting past-producing mines allows companies to start with proven mineralization, explore stockpile potential and utilize the existing infrastructure. Stockpiles create a fast track to cash flow, as the previous miners may have had different criteria based on the economics of their time. For example, gold mines often stockpiled gold under a specific grade as it was not economically feasible, but given current prices and modern processing technology, it’s now worth processing the stockpiled gold and silver.

Restarting a past-producing mine begins by selecting the proper jurisdiction. Idaho, for instance, has mining-friendly policies that include tax incentives to create rural jobs. The gold rush of the 1800s led to the creation of the state and the famous Silver City, which was founded near prolific silver and gold deposits. Mining policies in Idaho are focused on enabling ease of mining operations, both procedurally and practically.

CMX Gold & Silver (CSE:CXC,OTC:CXXMF) is an exploration and development mining company, focused on Idaho's historic gold and silver assets. The company’s flagship project, the Clayton Silver Mine, is a past-producing asset that operated for 50 years and historically mined over two million tonnes of ore. The ore was never mined out. Mineralization remains open to the north, south and to depth. Very little historical drilling was carried out to confirm more resources. One hole drilled in the 1960s intersected high grades of 4 oz Ag/t, 5.37 percent zinc and 5.75 percent lead across 22 feet at a depth of 1,425 feet. Recent staking of new lands surrounding the patented claims increased the company’s land position by two-thirds to 1,134 acres, adding both value and potential to the project.

The Clayton silver project also has a stockpile of potentially up to 1 million tonnes of unprocessed material. The company has a strong capital structure with no legacy or sweat equity debt, and the project has no royalties. CMX has contracted Sulphide Remediation Inc, to process Clayton Silver Mine’s stockpile, which would generate cash flow. Sulphide Remediation has conducted sampling of the stockpile rock and ore-sorting test results are pending.

CMX Gold & Silver notes that the previous miners simply followed the known vein system, and it was sufficient for their time and goals. However, the company plans to conduct additional exploration using modern techniques to identify other veins. Once identified, the company will conduct drilling operations to confirm survey results and identify additional development opportunities.

The company currently holds 1,134 acres in the Clayton Silver mine, comprising 31 patented and 28 unpatented mining claims.

A strong management team provides confidence in the company’s ability to capitalize on the past-producing mine. Jan Alston, CEO, has worked in the natural resources industry for over 35 years, including practicing business law in the oil and gas sector. Glen Alston, CFO, has 30 years of experience in corporate finance and has worked with mining companies focused on diamonds, precious metals, and base metals. Additional experts in geology and financing bring their specialties to the management team.

Key Projects

The Clayton Silver Mine

\u200bThe Clayton Silver Mine

The flagship project covers 1,134 acres and is roughly 30 kilometers from Custer country. It includes 31 patented and 28 unpatented mining claims. Additionally, further exploration aims to identify targets for an upcoming drill program that hopes to locate additional mineralization.

The company is currently planning for an initial, shallow diamond drilling program in 2023 to test targets in the vicinity of the South Ore Body, and conduct further drilling to test for new veins parallel to existing mine workings.

Project Highlights:

  • Stockpile from Previous Operators: The Clayton Silver Mine has an unprocessed stockpile of at least 500,000 and up to 1,000,000 tonnes of rock. A 2014 sampling program showed gold at 0.80 g/t, silver at 24.31 g/t, zinc at 0.27 percent, and lead at 0.44 percent. These tests were performed at 16 random locations, proving there is valuable rock in the stockpile.
  • Working with Engineers to Process the Stockpile: The company has contracted Sulphide Remediation Inc. to plan the efficient processing of the up to 1-million-tonne stockpile using state-of-the-art sensor-based ore sorting technology. CMX estimates that by processing an average of 4,000 tonnes per day, it will take six to eight months to process the stockpile, providing opportunities for cash flow later in 2023.
  • An Ecologically Friendly Project: Tailing studies and remediation work have been completed by the EPA and Idaho Department of Environmental Quality. The previous operators have no legacy environmental issues, and the company can readily obtain a water usage permit.
  • Year-Round Access with Paved Road: The Clayton Silver Project can be reached throughout the year via a paved road that leads directly to the site.
