Silver Hammer Mining Corp. ( CSE: HAMR; OTCQB: HAMRF ) (the "Company" or "Silver Hammer" ) is pleased to announce that the first drillhole of an 11-hole Phase II diamond drill program ("Phase II Drill Program") has been completed at its past-producing Silver Strand Project in Idaho.

The Phase II Drill Program, which is utilizing the Company's established underground drilling station, is focused on expanding known silver-gold mineralization further down-dip, while also testing the potential for additional mineralized chutes (see Figure 1). The Company has generated priority targets based on a drone supported magnetic survey, Phase I drilling results, and the integration of historical drilling data acquired from previous operators of the Silver Strand Project ( see Jan 26, 2022 news release ).

"We are excited to return to our flagship project and move forward with our Phase II Drill Program at Silver Strand. We have drillholes designed to test up to three times as deep as our previous phase of drilling and a series of other holes that will test the system laterally with the aim of discovering parallel chutes to the southeast of the main mine trend," stated President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom. "We believe the potential for making additional discoveries at Silver Strand is excellent and finding new high-grade zones of gold-silver mineralization would demonstrate the large-scale potential we think is possible here."

NISS, the Company's drilling contractor, has begun drilling and successfully finished the first hole. Approximately 1,100 meters of drilling is currently planned with ability to expand the program depending on core observations and initial assay results. Silver Hammer continues to use the Company's underground drilling station to deliver much better ROI per metre drilled. The Phase II Drill Program is expected to last approximately seven weeks, with assay results to follow during Q4/2022.

Yorbeau discovers new lens of copper and zinc west of the Gwillim fault on its Scott Lake property, Chibougamau, Quebec

Yorbeau discovers new lens of copper and zinc west of the Gwillim fault on its Scott Lake property, Chibougamau, Quebec

Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX: YRB) (" Yorbeau " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce the progress of the exploration program initiated in late August 2022 on its Scott property near Chibougamau, Quebec 100% owned by the Company.

As of October 5, 2022 three holes have been drilled on the property for a total of 2,615 meters. During this program, which is still ongoing, the company discovered a well mineralized 6.6 meters zone of sulphide rich in chalcopyrite (copper) and sphalerite (zinc) centered at a vertical depth of about 925 meters. The sulfide zone has so far been intersected by two drill holes, about 60 meters apart and a third is being executed. This zone of sulfide coincides with a modeled electromagnetic conductor 150 by 150 meters, 300 meters west of known Scott Lake deposit. The average thickness of this zone is not known at this moment. Indeed, the two holes that intersected the conductor only scratched the surface of the eastern edge (EST) of the electromagnetic conductor, according to our interpretation and the modeling made by Inter-Géophysique from Rosemère in Quebec. The current drilling is now targeting the center of the conductor in order to determine the potential size of the lens.
