Telson Mining Corporation (TSXV:TSN, OTCBB:SOHFF) (“Telson” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the following assay results from veins exposed in Level 12 Decline underground development at its Tahuehueto Mine Project.


As outlined on the company’s previous news release dated October 2, 2018 the Company has been steadily advancing underground development preparing the Tahuehueto Mine Project for initial startup scheduled during Q1 2019.

One of the main production declines under development, the N12 Decline has been driven over 120 m exposing veins of the El Perdido Zone, the El Creston Zone and the newly discovered vein named Enmedio. (View Image Here). Channel sampling across these veins have returned excellent assay results on multiple faces.

Please refer to the image links below for sample locations and the table below for detailed sample assay results.

All the above samples were submitted to SGS De Mexico. S.A. de C.V. independent laboratory located in Durango city Mexico. Assay methods utilized were GE_FAA313 for gold and Silver, Multi-element GE_ICP14B and for lead and zinc over-limits, GO_ICP90Q. Additional detail on assay methodology used can be found on SGS website at

Antonio Berlanga, CEO, states “The assay values returned, confirm the excellent ore quality and potential of Tahuehueto. Selective Cut and Fill mining methods to be used during mining operations will ensure the high quality of mined ore, minimize dilution and help deliver low mining cost. This along with an innovative mine design that is significantly reducing the required underground development that was envisioned in previous studies, is sure to allow the Tahuehueto Mine to maximize future profitability for the benefit of all Telson stakeholders including employees, local communities and shareholders.”

About Telson Mining Corporation

Telson Mining Corporation is a Canadian based mining company with two Mexican gold, silver and base metal mining projects. Telson is currently in commercial production at its 100% owned Campo Morado Mine in Guerrero, Mexico. Effective May 15, 2018 Telson declared commercial production at Campo Morado. Telson is currently producing zinc and lead concentrates with gold, silver and copper as by-products, processing approximately 2,000+ tons per day through the Campo Morado milling facilities.

Telson’s 100% owned Tahuehueto Project, located in north-western Durango State, Mexico is currently in construction development. Pre-production commenced at Tahuehueto in August 2017, currently mining at a rate averaging 170 tonnes per day during Sept 1st – 23rd 2018 shipping ore to a third-party toll mill for processing. Management has a targeted timeline at Tahuehueto to be producing with its own on-site mineral processing plant, with a designed capacity of at least 1,000 tonnes per day, during the first quarter of 2019.

Regular metal concentrate deliveries and sales are well underway from both projects.

This press release was prepared under the supervision and review of Ralph Shearing, P.Geol., President and Director of Telson Mining Corporation, a Professional Geologist registered in Alberta as a member of the professional association APEGA, and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Data verification by Mr. Shearing includes personal inspection of the Campo Morado mine site, reviewing mining facilities, drill core, underground development and discussing work programs and results with geology and mining personnel.

Cautionary Note Regarding Production Decisions and Forward-Looking Statements

It should be noted that at Tahuehueto, Telson is mining reserves supported by a pre-feasibility published early 2017 while at Campo Morado pre-production mining is proceeding without the benefit of pre-feasibility or feasibility studies that outline mineral reserves and has declared commercial production at Campo Morado prior to completing a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability. Accordingly, readers should be cautioned that Telson’s Campo Morado production decision has been made without a comprehensive feasibility study of established reserves such that there is greater risk and uncertainty as to future economic results from the Campo Morado mine and a higher technical risk of failure than would be the case if a feasibility study was completed and relied upon to make a production decision. Telson has completed a preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”) mining study on the Campo Morado mine that provides a conceptual life of mine plan and a preliminary economic analysis based on the previously identified mineral resources (see News Release dated November 8, 2017 and April 4, 2018). This will soon be replaced by a pre-feasibility study (“PFS”) that will allow the application of modifying factors to the mineral resources to allow a portion of them to be converted to mineral reserves.
