Denarius Silver Corp. ("Denarius" or "the Company") (TSXV: DSLV) announced today that it has filed its unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying management's discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. These documents can be found on its website at and by reviewing its profile on SEDAR at . All financial figures contained herein are expressed in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.

Third Quarter and First Nine Months 2021 Highlights

  • Denarius is a junior exploration company currently drilling its Lomero-Poyatos polymetallic deposit located on the Spanish side of the prolific copper rich Iberian Pyrite Belt. The Company also commenced drilling its Guia Antigua silver-gold project in Colombia in mid-2021 and IAMGOLD Corporation is carrying out an exploration program on the Company's Zancudo Project in Colombia as part of an earn-in option agreement. Denarius is fully funded to carry out its current exploration campaigns with a cash balance at September 30, 2021 of $18.3 million.

  • Denarius was formed through a reverse take over transaction ("RTO Transaction") in February 2021 and commenced trading on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") under the symbol "DSLV" in March 2021. The Company currently has 207.4 million common shares issued and outstanding and has a strong shareholder base with approximately 27% owned by GCM Mining Corp. (formerly, Gran Colombia Gold Corp.) (TSX: GCM) and 19% owned by King Street Capital.

  • Initially, the Company focused on two silver-gold exploration projects, the Guia Antigua and Zancudo Projects, both of which are located in high-grade mining districts in Colombia. Concurrently with the closing of the RTO Transaction, 1255269 B.C. Ltd. (a party to the RTO Transaction and the "Guia Antigua Vendor") completed a private placement financing and the gross proceeds of CA$8.4 million (approximately $6.7 million) were released from escrow to the Company. These funds are being used by Denarius to fund the exploration program at the Guia Antigua Project and for general corporate purposes.

  • In April 2021, the Company added its third project (the "Lomero Project") with the acquisition of a 100% interest in the Investigation Permit Nº 14,977, also identified as Rubia, covering the areas occupied by the former Lomero-Poyatos Concessions and the mine within them in Southern Spain. The Lomero Project has a historical estimate in the inferred category of 20.93 Mt of 3.08 g/t gold, 62.38 g/t silver, 0.90% copper, 0.85% lead and 3.05% zinc that remains open at depth and along strike. In October 2021, the Company commenced a 23,500 meters drilling campaign at the Lomero Project.

  • In preparation for the Lomero Project acquisition and the planned exploration program, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement financing in March 2021 of 75,000,000 subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts Financing") at a price of CA$0.45 per subscription receipt for aggregate gross cash proceeds of approximately CA$33.8 million (equivalent to approximately $26.9 million). The Subscription Receipts were converted into common shares and warrants on April 29, 2021. The warrants commenced trading on the TSXV under the symbol "DSLV.WT" in July 2021.

  • The Company reported a net loss for the third quarter of 2021 of $0.9 million, or $0.00 per share, compared with net loss of $Nil in the third quarter of 2020, principally reflecting general, administrative and marketing expenses incurred in the third quarter of 2021 as the Company ramps up its activities around its exploration projects. For the first nine months of 2021, the net loss amounted to $17.0 million, or $0.12 per share, compared with net loss of $Nil in the first nine months of 2020. The largest items included in the net loss in the first nine months of 2021 were the $12.9 million one-time charge related to the RTO Transaction in February 2021, $2.4 million of share-based compensation expense associated with stock options granted by the Company under its long-term incentive plan to directors, executive officers, management and consultants, and $1.5 million of general, administrative and marketing expenses.


The Company is currently carrying out 23,500 m of drilling at the Lomero Project with an estimated cost of $4.0 million. The infill drilling program of 15,600 m has been designed to increase the confidence in the estimates to an Indicated Mineral Resources and to aid in the identification of different mineralization styles. The use of orientated core supplemented with televiewer information will increase the confidence in the structural controls on the project and geotechnical and hydrogeological modelling. The campaign will then proceed to conduct a 50x50 meters in-fill drilling program in the lower levels of the same mine. Initial results from the drilling program are expected toward the end of the year.

The Company is also continuing its drilling program at its Guia Antigua Project in Colombia. Assay results are pending from the initial in-fill drillholes and are expected to be announced before the end of the year.

The Iberian Pyrite Belt is globally recognized as having one of the highest concentrations of volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits on Earth. The entire belt has more than 2 billion tonnes of ore, with an estimated 400 million tonnes remaining. Prior exploration also indicates that the Iberian Pyrite Belt contains gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc.

The Iberian Pyrite Belt is located across Spain and Portugal. It features a rich history of productive mining that dates all the way back to the Roman Empire. Overall, the average mineral production in Spain is 20,400,119 tonnes between 2009 and 2018. Over 100 minerals can be mined through Spain, with many of these minerals being located on the Iberian Pyrite Belt.

Denarius (TSXV:DSLV) is a Canadian junior exploration company dedicated to advancing mining projects that are located in high-grade mining districts. Its portfolio contains international projects ranging from exploration to near-term production of metal assets that can be leveraged across multiple markets.

Denarius’ flagship project is the Lomero-Poyatos Project, which is located in the Iberian Pyrite Belt in Spain. The historical production at this site was a minimum of 2.6 million tonnes of massive sulphide ore. In August 2021, Denarius received a mining permit for its Lomero-Poyatos project, allowing for exploratory drilling in select historical holes.

The Lomero-Poyatos project is a polymetallic asset that will allow Denarius to mine green metals, such as lead, zinc and copper, in addition to gold. Mining copper directly supports the global initiative towards embracing environmental technologies since copper is required for electric vehicles, wind turbines, solar powers and electric vehicle batteries. It’s estimated that copper demand will increase by 900 percent by 2030. Denarius is poised to capitalize on the increased demand for copper through its Lomero-Poyatos project.

Denarius also has two additional mining projects located in Colombia. Colombia is an OECD member country and has one of the lowest inflation rates in Latin America. Some experts predict that Colombia’s GDP will recover from the 2020 pandemic-induced plunge with a projected increase of 6.5 percent in 2021.

The two projects located in Colombia, Guia Antigua and Zancudo, are both located in historically productive high-grade mining districts. The Guia Antigua project is located in a mining district that has been in continuous operation for 150 years and has produced approximately 6 million ounces of gold, while the Zancudo project is located in a mining district that has been producing ore since 1793.

Silver is becoming not only such an important thing as a metal but as an industrial metal. As part of all this new green energy that is going to be created, it’s going to be an important element in the making of batteries and conductors,” said Denarius Executive Chairman Serafino Iacono in a recent interview.

Denarius has issued 205,076,865 shares (299,300,565 on a fully diluted basis), creating a market capitalization of C$80 million. Approximately 27 percent of these shares have insider ownership, which shows the confidence of the management team. As of Q1 2021, it reports having US$32.4 million in total cash, US$10 million was used in April 2021 in connection with the acquisition of the Lomero Project and the balance is available to fund the Company’s exploration programs at Lomero and Guia Antigua.

Serafino Iacono is currently the executive chairman and interim CEO. Iacono brings over thirty years of experience throughout numerous natural resource projects around the world. He has raised billions of dollars for these projects throughout his career.

Denarius’ Company Highlights

  • Denarius is a Canadian junior exploration company with a diverse portfolio of high-grade mines. It is focused on developing projects located in historical productive districts in Spain and Colombia.
  • Each of the company’s assets is located near existing projects that are massively productive, which creates an existing robust infrastructure that allows Denarius to quickly advance their projects.
  • All three of the company’s projects have historically returned high-grade minerals that are consistent with their neighbors’ production.
  • The company has a management team that has international experience and brings plenty of operational expertise that may enable them to quickly advance projects.

Denarius’ Key Projects

Lomero-Poyatos Project

The Lomero-Poyatos project is the flagship project of Denarius. The deposit is located in the northeast section of The Iberian Pyrite Belt. The Iberian Pyrite Belt has been previously explored by prior ownership, who inferred that there are approximately 20.93 mt of resources at the following grades:

  • Gold – 3.08 g/t
  • Silver – 62.38 g/t
  • Copper – 0.90 percent
  • Lead – 0.85 percent
  • Zinc – 3.05 percent

As a polymetallic mine, this asset allows Denarius to produce green metals, which are estimated to grow in demand. The demand for these metals coincides with the transition to green energy since copper is required for wind turbines, solar panels, electric vehicles and electric vehicle batteries.

Close proximity to other high-producing projects means there is existing infrastructure that will allow Denarius to quickly develop this project. The site is serviced by water, power, and paved roads that lead to Seville, a nearby town. There are also several nearby villages that represent an opportunity for labor and accommodation.

The 2021 objectives for the Lomero-Poyatos Project are to commence 22,050 meters of drilling, along with metallurgy testing. The 22,050 meters of drilling include 14 drill holes to verify the results of historical drilling, 59 holes planned to infill the previous drilling, and 15 holes to extend the deposit.

Guia Antigua Project

The Guia Antigua project is located in the high-grade Segovia mining district. The mines in this district have historically produced 6 million ounces of gold.. Early exploration initiatives show that there is strong potential for more discoveries in the surrounding area.

This asset produced 78,558 oz silver and 1,174 oz gold from a total of 6,034 tonnes with an average grade of 404.90 g/t silver and 6.05 g/t gold between 2014-2016. In 2018, a rock channel sampling returned the grades of 7.645 g/t gold and 335.1 g/t silver, with a grade range of 0.012 to 133.7 g/t gold and <0.3 to 10,381 g/t silver.

The first phase of this project, which commenced in February 2021, calls for the completion of ongoing soil surveys. Several other exploration technologies will be employed to identify new trill targets and locations, which may include historically productive drill sites. Ongoing development is dependent on positive results from this phase of the project.

Zancudo Project

The Zancudo project includes the Independencia Mine, which has historically been productive. Furthermore, the asset is near GoldMining’s Titiribi project, which is a highly productive gold mine. This project also has an option agreement in place with IAMGOLD to further explore the area for minerals.

Production in this area dates back to 1793 and has been in constant production ever since. It was further developed in 1993 when it was acquired as a silver mine. Denarius acquired the project from GranColombiaGold in 2020.

There are currently seven identified drilling exploration targets that aim to explore locations that are believed to be rich in minerals. Progress has already been made on these exploratory drilling sites. However, the COVID-19 pandemic caused delays on completing the exploratory drilling objective. The company expects to complete the exploratory drilling sometime in 2021.

Endeavour Silver - Standing on the Bridge to a More Exciting Outlook

Full year production results and 2022 guidance. Compared to 2020, silver, and gold production in 2021 increased 38.6% and 13.8% to 4,870,787 ounces and 42,262 ounces, respectively. Strong full year operational performance was due, in part, to higher throughput and grades at the Guanacevi mine. At year-end, Endeavour held 1,028,340 ounces of silver and 1,044 ounces of gold bullion and 54,270 ounces of silver and 2,630 ounces of gold in concentrate inventory. In 2022, silver production is expected to range from 4.2 million to 4.8 million ounces, while gold production is expected to range from 31,000 to 35,000 ounces. Updating production and earnings estimates. We are updating our 2021 and 2022 EPS estimates to $(0.01) and $0.14 from $0.02 and $0.15, respectively. Our 2021 EBITDA estimates are $37.9 million and $65.9 million compared to our prior estimates of $44.8 million and $67.2 million, respectively. Our 2022 estimates reflect lower production, partially offset by sales from inventory, and a higher share count to reflect equity issuance related to the recently announced Pitarrilla acquisition. Fourth quarter earnings date. EXK will release fourth quarter 2021 financial results before the market open on March 10, 2022, and management will host a conference call for investors on the same day at 1:00 pm ET. We anticipate discussion to center on sources of future growth, including Terronera, Pitarrilla, and Parral. With respect to Terronera, once financing is in place, the board will approve construction which is expected to take 24 months with commercial production expected in the first half of 2024. Rating is Market Perform. We remain impressed with how the company's intermediate and long-term growth pipeline is developing. We think near-term risk and reward is balanced given steady production levels in 2022 and 2023 and a relatively high operating cost profile which could improve when Terronera goes into commercial production.
