Nevada Silver Corporation (TSXV: NSC) (OTCQB: NVDSF) ("NSC" or the "Company"), further to its press release of March 24, 2022, is pleased to provide an update on its plans to complete a sale of securities of its indirectly wholly owned U.S.A. subsidiary, North Star Manganese Inc ("NSM"). As previously disclosed, NSM intends to issue approximately 3,000,000 shares of common stock of NSM at a price of US$0.25 per share for proceeds of approximately US$750,000 (the "NSM Financing"). The NSM Financing follows the split of its outstanding securities on the basis of 2.3483 new shares for each currently outstanding share. As a result, the outstanding shares of NSM has increased from 12,775,000 shares to 30,000,000 shares. It is anticipated that upon completion of the NSM Financing, there will be approximately 33,000,000 shares of NSM common stock outstanding. If completed, the Company's indirect shareholding in NSM will be reduced to approximately 90.9%. The NSM Financing is subject to the receipt of final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange prior to closing. Proceeds from the NSM Financing will be used to advance technical studies at the Emily Manganese project and for general working capital. No commissions or similar fees are expected to be paid in connection with the NSM Financing. Closing of the NSM Financing is expected to occur before the end of August 2022. Further updates will be provided in respect of the NSM Financing as they occur.
NSM holds the Emily Manganese Project in Minnesota, USA (the "Emily Manganese Project"). The Company's focus is on its Corcoran Silver-Gold Project in Nevada, USA, and does not consider the Emily Manganese Project to be material to its operations. As announced on December 21, 2021, the Company is considering its options with respect to the financing, development and commercialization of the Emily Manganese Project and how best to advance it (any such transaction, a "Value Realization Transaction"). Any Value Realization Transaction will be subject to receipt of all necessary corporate, securities, shareholder, and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. There can be no assurances that a Value Realization Transaction will be completed, either on the terms outlined, or at all. Further updates will be provided as they occur. Please see the Company's filing statement dated April 20, 2021, for further information about the Emily Manganese Project, available under the Company's profile at www.SEDAR.com.

Nevada Silver's operations could be significantly adversely affected by the effects of the widespread global outbreak of a contagious disease, including the outbreak of illness caused by COVID-19. It is not possible to accurately predict the impact COVID-19 will have on operations and the ability of others to meet their obligations, including uncertainties relating to the ultimate geographic spread of the virus, the severity of the disease, the duration of the outbreak, and the length of travel and quarantine restrictions imposed by governments of affected countries. In addition, a significant outbreak of contagious diseases in the human population could result in a widespread health crisis that could adversely affect the economies and financial markets of many countries, resulting in an economic downturn that could further affect operations and the ability to finance its operations.
