Silver Hammer Receives Permit to Drill the Past-Producing Silverton Silver Mine Project in Nevada

Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR/OTCQB:HAMRF) (“Silver Hammer” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has received permits to drill its past-producing Silverton Silver Mine (or “Silverton”) located 129 kilometres (“km”) northeast of the Tonopah silver district in Nevada. The drilling is part of an exploration program targeting extensions of the high-grade veins mined until the 1920s. This historic mine has seen only minimal modern exploration.


The United States Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) has granted a drilling and surface disturbance exploration permit. The two-year permit, effective March 17, 2022, allows the Company up to 13 drill sites, 8,530 feet of drilling, 3,248 feet of constructed road and 200 feet of overland travel covering 2.35 acres of surface disturbance. The Company plans to test areas around the existing mine as well as recently staked areas after refining targets.

Morgan Lekstrom, President & Chief Executive Officer of Silver Hammer stated: "Our primary focus remains our flagship Silver Strand Project in Idaho; however, the first phases of field work at Silverton were very encouraging and securing a two-year permit now puts us in position to accelerate towards drilling once we’ve refined and finalized our targets.”

Mr. Lekstrom added: “Earlier this year, our technical team staked additional 19 claims expanding the Silverton land package to 620 total acres. Obtaining an initial permit is just another milestone step towards testing the exploration upside that we believe remains here.”

About Silverton Project

Silverton is located in East Nevada’s “Silver Alley” with historical production grades as high as 933 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver. There has been limited to no modern-day drilling or subsurface exploration completed in the area since the 1920s and Silver Hammer controls a property package surrounding historic high-grade mine sites with recent rock chip samples returning up to 692 g/t silver (see November 29, 2021 news release) and 6.1 g/t gold (see October 7, 2021 news release).

Top 5 Canadian Silver Stocks of 2024

2024 has been positive for silver stocks, as silver prices soared during the second quarter of 2024, breaching the US$30 mark in May for the first time since 2012.

Silver's gains are being driven by a variety of factors. According to the Silver Institute, demand for the metal is set to outstrip mining supply for the third year in a row, due in part to rising demand from sectors dependent on the energy transition including photovoltaics and electric vehicles.

India in particular has seen demand soar as the country introduced new regulations for domestic production for new solar projects, leading the country to import more silver through the first four months of the year than all of 2023.

Chen Lin: Silver's Move to US$50 Will be Quick, How I'm Investing Now

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Chen Lin of Lin Asset Management shared his outlook for silver, explaining that the white metal could move quickly to the US$50 per ounce level once market participants realize how large the divide between supply and demand really is.

When asked about the most important drivers for silver right now, he pointed to the solar industry, noting that two to three years ago it was consuming 100 million ounces of silver; that amount rose to 200 million ounces last year.

This year, the Silver Institute is projecting a further 40 million ounces of solar demand, but Lin thinks the sector may end up requiring an extra 100 million ounces, bringing its total usage to 300 million ounces for 2024.

"From all the data I get, it's 100 million ... so from 200 million to 300 million," he said. A new report out of Germany has an even higher projection, forecasting that the solar market could consume 400 million ounces of silver this year.
