Fabled Silver Gold Corp. ("Fabled" or the "Company") (TSXV:FCO)(OTCQB:FBSGF)(FSE:7NQ) announces the results of surface diamond drilling from the upgraded 14,400 -meter drill program on the "Santa Maria" Property in Parral, Mexico

Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President, remarks, "Planned definition hole SM20-43 was designed to fill in a drill poor gap in the past resource area. Of interest to note is the lack of or decrease of gold values found in drilling to the east. See Figure 1 below.

Figure 1 - Longitudinal View of Area of Current Drilling


Definition Diamond Drill Hole SM20-43 was drilled at a dip or angle of -73 degrees for a total drilled length of 204 meters and designed to hit the targeted zone at -125 meters below surface.

The hole was also successful in intercepting 6 silver, with little to no gold, bearing zones of interest before hitting the targeted zone, see Figure 2, Table 1, and Photos 1, 2 and 3 below.

Figure 2 - Cross Section Diamond Drill Hole SM20-43

The first intercept of interest, which was shallow, began at 51 meters and returned 3.00 meters grading 29.27 Ag Eq followed by 1.70 meters grading 24.20 g/t Ag Eq in an oxidized breccia. This interval has anomalous gold mineralization

Further down the hole at 58.70 - 60.00 meters another similar breccia was encountered and returned 1.30 meters grading 41.21 g/t Ag Eq. Very low anomalous gold was reported. See Figure 2 above, Table 1.

From 75.00 - 88.50 meters a strong, well developed polymictic breccia was encountered over the entire 13.50 meters. The breccia was composed mostly of limestone clasts, poorly sorted with 20-25% disseminated sulphides with some replacement textures, sulphides contained within the clasts, (primary) as well as renealing the breccia, (secondary). The upper contact of the breccia returned 21.53 Ag Eq over 1.50 meters, at 78 meters the breccia returned 68.77 g/t Ag Eq over 1.50 meters followed by 1.50 meters of 37.14 g/t Ag Eq at 82.50 meters and on the lower contact 20.81 g/t Ag Eq over 1.50 meters at 87.00 meters. See Figure 2 above, Table 1 and Photos 1 and 2 below.

Photo 1 - SM20-43 Drill Core

Note, that as described above, certain clasts within the breccia contain sulphides, (primary) and the matrix around the clasts contains up to 25% sulphides, (secondary). Question is, which sulphides have the silver mineralization and where is the source rock of the breccia clasts with primary sulphides and why is there little to no gold mineralization?

Photo 2 - SM20-43 Drill Core

At 126.80 - 131.3 a grayish hydrothermal breccia was encounter, with the upper and lower contacts oxidized with quartz and sulphides in the matrix. The upper contact returned 1.60 meters grading 40.61 g/t Ag Eq and the lower contact reported 41.33 g/t Ag Eq.

See Figure 2 above, Table 1 and Photo 3 below.

Photo 3 - SM20-42 Drill Core

From the lower contact of the oxidized breccia at 131.30 meters the next 34.40 meters was composed of a polymictic breccia similar to that seen above from 75 - 88 meters, see Photo 1 and note similarities.

Hole SM20-43 was successful in providing valuable information in this drill poor area. The 7 zones of interest, the breccias and related mineralization will now start to be modeled into our bigger picture of the controls of the types of mineralization on the property.

This not only includes the assay data but also structures intercepted, mineralized sheeted veins in dikes and related breccias will provide a comprehensive detailed view of this section and maybe applied to other parts of the property.

As previously reported definition drill hole SM20-42 which is located approximately 200 meters west of hole 43 being reported, hole 42 reports gold values with lesser silver values while here we see only silver values with little to no gold. In 200 meters something has changed to the system, perhaps going from a hydrothermal system to a epithermal system? This will be further investigated.

Definition diamond drill hole SM20-44 is located approximately 75 meters to the east and again has been defined to fill in a drill poor area. Holes SM20-44 - 48 have been completed, hole 44-47 have been submitted for assay.

See Figure 3 below.

Fabled Silver Gold

Fabled Silver Gold


Mexico produces more silver than any other country in the world, and the city of Parral in Chihuahua, Mexico, is exceptionally special. After the discovery of silver in 1631, San José de Parral was established as a mining town and later declared “the capital of the silver world” by King Philip IV of Spain. The district continues to be a significant center for silver mining and presents companies operating in the area with a world-class opportunity for silver discovery and high-quality exploration.

Fabled Silver Gold (TSXV:FCO,FWB:7NQ,OTCQB:FBSGF) is focused on acquiring, exploring and developing properties that yield high-grade, near-term metal production. It is currently operating its high-quality Santa Maria silver-gold project in Parral, Mexico.


CEO Peter Hawley, an industry titan with more than 35 years in the industry overseeing exploration, development and production, officially came out of retirement to oversee the early stages of growth and development for Fabled Silver Gold and its ongoing projects.

The city of Parral in Chihuahua, Mexico has a rich mining history and has produced over 250 million ounces of silver to date. Operating out of this district strategically positions Fabled Silver Gold to leverage its mining-friendly conditions, and the company has built strong community relationships.

The Santa Maria silver-gold project hosts a strong foundation for growth. All 21 veins discovered to date are on surface and open on strike and at depth have the potential for expansion and deep exploration. The project site has significant infrastructure, including access to paved and dirt roads and grid power.

In March 2021, Fabled announced its trading commencement on the OTCQB Venture Marketplace. This graduation demonstrates its fast-growing potential as a serious contender in the silver mining space and exposes the company to a much broader range of US investors.

The next steps for the company include an 8,000 meter drilling program over the Santa Maria property. The company has already published five drill hole results of the approximately 30 intended for drilling. With additional sampling, geophysics and exploration, the project could see similar success to neighboring deposits such as Silver Crest’s early-stage Las Chispas project.

The Fabled Silver Gold management team brings together a proven track record of success in technical experience, local expertise and capital markets. Their experience and dedication to the Santa Maria project prime the company for significant high-grade silver discovery and economic growth.

Fabled Silver Gold’s Company Highlights

  • Fabled Silver Gold is a mineral exploration company focused on exploring, acquiring and developing high-quality and near-term metal projects.
  • The company’s flagship Santa Maria silver-gold project leverages the mining-friendly conditions of the Parral jurisdiction in Mexico. The prolific district hosts a rich mining history and widespread high-grade silver mineralization.
  • Santa Maria presents the company with an option for 100 percent ownership. The projects’ unique structure and vein system opens the possibility for expansion and silver discovery with an extensive drilling campaign currently in the works.
  • The property hosts a NI 43-101 resource of 3.24 million ounces of indicated and 1.1 million ounces of inferred silver equivalent mineralization. It has favorable epithermal veining, and 21 veins have been discovered to date at surface level.

Fabled Silver Gold’s Key Projects

Santa Maria Project

The Santa Maria gold-silver property is situated in the center of the Mexican epithermal silver-gold belt in the mining-friendly Parral district in Chihuahua, Mexico. The district hosts multiple major operators in the vicinity and has excellent infrastructure, including accessible roadways, grid power and skilled labor networks. Fabled has the option to own 100 percent of the property from Golden Minerals Company (TSX:AUMN,NYSEAMERICAN:AUMN).

The property hosts a high-grade silver-gold mine with a robust vein system. Twenty-one veins have been discovered to date on surface level and all veins appear to be open on strike and at depth. Additionally, surface samples from 14 veins show elevated gold and silver values, with the remaining veins never sampled.


In March 2021, the company completed six diamond drill holes with assay results reporting five silver-bearing north to south structures. Mineralized grades from this campaign returned 1.40 g/t gold, 862 g/t silver and 934.02 g/t silver equivalents.

The project presents Fabled with immense discovery opportunity, and has an existing NI 43-101 resource of 3.2 million ounces of indicated and 1.1 million ounces of inferred silver equivalent mineralization. The unique ore body structure and identified anomalies make this project all the more special. Advancement of drilling and expanded exploration efforts are in the works for Santa Maria.
