Fabled Silver Gold Corp. ("Fabled" or the "Company") (TSXV:FCO)(OTCQB:FBSGF)(FSE:7NQ) is pleased to announce updates of diamond drilling from the upgraded 9,200 meter drill program on the "Santa Maria" Property in Parral, Mexico

As previously mentioned, in drill hole SM20-08B the last sampled interval was from 226.5 - 227.6 meters grading 75.9 g/t silver in a north - south silicified structure, mineral bearing and black in color, this unit continues to the end of the hole at 234 meters, an extra 6.4 meters and the rest of the hole had been sampled on a rush bases priority of which we have now received the assays.

In hole SM20-8B from 199.10 - 215.40 meters reddish, highly oxidized and fractured quart cemented breccia was encountered with a vuggy texture and pervasive silicification very indicative of the structure.

Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President, reports, " We noticed that the rush samples had elevated zinc, which has not been encountered before and as such have reviewed the entire core assayed and can confirm that there is anomalous low-grade silver, but elevated zinc, indicative of a different age mineral plumbing system up to 16.30 meters in width. The bottom of the hole over the 6.40 meters was composed of a greenish, highly fractured limestone with veinlets of quartz and medium - strong chlorite plus argillaceous with sericite alteration.

Knowing this, we have now re-entered into hole 8B to extend the hole to a barren rock unit."

As previously mentioned drill hole SM20-09 was drilled for a targeted depth of -250 meters and was terminated prematurely at 231 meters where not only did the hole collapse due to the fault but jammed the drill rods and a section of the drill string and bit was left in the hole.

Drill Hole SM20 -10 was drilled under hole SM20-09 at -70 degrees and encountered 97.5 meters ( 79.5 - 177 meters) of C1 tectonic faulting containing breccias with oxidized quartz with argillic alteration and was completed to a depth of 226.5 meters. This dry hole with low anomalous silver values also gave zinc values indicating a change in the system.

The important structural information collected from holes 8B and 10 allowed the Company to vector in on the movement components and as such collar drill hole SM20-11 approximately 200 meters to the northeast of holes 8-10 and was drilled at right angle or 90 degrees to the north - south trending faulting and encountered multiply zones of mineralization including 26.90 meters in what is now called the " North Vein Structure."

Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President, remarks, "As I mentioned in previous releases, we are exploring areas never explored before, with new ideas to test our structure-on-structure theory over the Property and ever hole regardless of mineralization tell a piece of the story and adds to the understanding of the emplacement of the various pulses of mineralization and their relationship to orientation of structures.

We are systematically taking what was previously thought of as simple E-W high grade structure and re-evaluating, with numerous successes to date, in order to develop our new concept which is seen below in Figure 1, "Plan View of IP Anomalies and Drill Hole Collars".

P. Hawley continues," Three silver, zinc bearing new structures found, in addition to other silver bearing structures as we continue to zero in on additional new discoveries on the Santa Maria Property bodes well for the rest of the program.

FUTURE DRILLING UPDATE

Drill hole SM20-12 which has been designed to intersect the eastern extension of the anomaly at a vertical depth of -150 meters, while SM20-13 was planned to intercept the western sector of the anomaly at a vertical depth of -275 meters.

Both these hole have been completed with the drill machine now re-entering hole SM-208B to further extend the hole.

After the completion of hole 8B, hole SM20-14 will be drilled to investigate the hole 11 - 26.9 meter interception at a depth of -170 meters vertically.


Figure 2 - Section View of hole SM20-11 and Proposed hole SM20-14.

The Company has now completed drill holes SM20-01 - 13 for a total of approximately 3,250 meters of the increased 9,200 meter drill program. Holes SM20-12,13 have been sampled and submitted to ALS Chihuahua Laboratory for analysis. Hole SM20-8B is currently in progress.

To facilitate the underground drilling, various drill bays have been prepared, electric generator set up at the portal and over 350 meters of electric submarine cable being installed in preparation for the installation of the diamond drill in the first drill bay.

QA QC Procedure

Analytical results of sampling reported by Fabled Silver Gold represent core samples that have been sawn in half with half of the core sampled and submitted by Fabled Silver Gold staff directly to ALS Chemex, Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico. Samples were crushed, split, and pulverized as per ALS Chemex method PREP-31, then analyzed for ME-ICP61 33 element package by four acid digestion with ICP-AES Finish. ME-GRA21 method for Au and Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish, 30g nominal sample weight.

Over Limit Methods

For samples triggering precious metal over-limit thresholds of 10 g/t Au or 100 g/t Ag, the following is being used:

Au-GRA21 Au by fire assay and gravimetric finish with 30 g sample.

Ag-GRA21 Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish.

Fabled Silver Gold monitors QA/QC using commercially sourced standards and locally sourced blank materials inserted within the sample sequence at regular intervals.

Fabled Silver Gold

Overview

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.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Gets Inflation Data Boost, Tesla's Musk Mulls Lithium Mining

Top Stories This Week: Gold Gets Inflation Data Boost, Tesla's Musk Mulls Lithium Miningyoutu.be

Gold was able to end this week on a high note. Its lowest point for the period was just over US$1,940 per ounce on Monday (April 11), but since then it's trended upward.

The yellow metal rose to the US$1,980 level for a brief amount of time on Wednesday, and was still relatively elevated on Friday (April 16) afternoon, sitting at US$1,974.

Helping push the metal higher was hotter-than-expected US inflation data — the consumer price index rose 8.5 percent year-on-year in March, marking its biggest increase since December 1981.

Maria Smirnova: Our Thesis Hasn't Changed — We Believe in Gold and Silveryoutu.be

Gold has pulled back from the highs seen earlier this year, but according to Maria Smirnova, senior portfolio manager at Sprott Asset Management, the yellow metal is on a positive path.

Smirnova, who is also sub-advisor to the Ninepoint Silver Equities Class and the Ninepoint Gold and Precious Minerals Fund, has a positive outlook for both gold and silver, although she said the white metal is now in limbo.

"To be honest, our thesis has not changed in years ... we believe in gold and silver and the associated miners as a diversifier of portfolios," she told the Investing News Network in an interview.

B2Gold Reports Strong Gold Production for Q1 2022 with Total Gold Production of 209,365 oz, 5% Above Budget; On Track to Meet Annual Guidance of 990,000 to 1,050,000 oz of Total Gold Production

B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO) (NYSE AMERICAN: BTG) (NSX: B2G) ("B2Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its gold production and gold revenue for the first quarter of 2022. All dollar figures are in United States dollars unless otherwise indicated.

2022 First Quarter Highlights
  • Total gold production of 209,365 ounces (including 12,892 ounces of attributable production from Calibre Mining Corp. ("Calibre")), 5% (9,760 ounces) above budget, and consolidated gold production of 196,473 ounces from the Company's three operating mines, 4% (8,431 ounces) above budget, with solid performances from all the Company's three mines, with each mine exceeding its budgeted production for the first quarter of 2022
  • Consolidated gold revenue was $366 million on sales of 195,100 ounces at an average realized price of $1,874 per ounce
  • For 2022, B2Gold remains well positioned for continued strong operational and financial performance with total gold production guidance of between 990,000 - 1,050,000 ounces (including 40,000 - 50,000 attributable ounces projected from Calibre) with total consolidated cash operating costs forecast to be between $620 - $660 per ounce (see "Non-IFRS Measures") and total consolidated all-in sustaining costs ("AISC") (see "Non-IFRS Measures") forecast to be between $1,010 - $1,050 per ounce
  • The Company announced an updated and significantly increased Mineral Resource estimate for the Anaconda area, comprised of the Menankoto permit and the Bantako North permit, located approximately 20 kilometres from the Fekola Mine; preliminary planning by the Company has demonstrated that a pit situated on the Anaconda area could provide saprolite (weathered) material to be trucked to and fed into the Fekola mill commencing as early as late 2022, subject to obtaining all necessary permits and completion of a final mine plan, with the potential to add an average of approximately 80,000 to 100,000 ounces per year to the Fekola mill's annual gold production
  • B2Gold's Namibian subsidiary was recognized by the Namibian Revenue Agency as the highest revenue contributor among "Overall Top Contributors" in calendar year 2021
Gold Production

Total gold production in the first quarter of 2022 was 209,365 ounces (including 12,892 ounces of attributable production from Calibre), above budget by 5% (9,760 ounces), and consolidated gold production from the Company's three operating mines was 196,473 ounces, above budget by 4% (8,431 ounces), with solid performances from the Company's three mines, with each mine exceeding its budgeted production for the first quarter of 2022 (see "Operations" section below). Due to the timing of higher-grade ore mining, consolidated gold production from the Company's three operating mines is expected to be significantly weighted to the second half of 2022. As expected, compared to the first quarter of 2021, total consolidated gold production was lower by 5% (11,279 ounces), due to the planned significant waste stripping campaign and lower mined ore tonnage at the Fekola Mine in the first quarter of 2022, as Phase 6 of the Fekola Pit continues to be developed in the first half of 2022.
