Vizsla Silver expands Napoleon Vein to 2,500 metres long and over 500 metres below surface at Panuco


Vizsla Silver Corp. (TSX-V: VZLA) (NYSE: VZLA) (Frankfurt: 0G3) (“Vizsla” or the “Company” – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/vizsla-silver-corp/ ) is pleased to report results from 53 drill holes targeting the Napoleon Vein Corridor (Napoleon, Napoleon Hangingwall and Josephine veins), at its 100%-owned, flagship Panuco silver-gold project (\”Panuco\” or the \”Project\”) located in Mexico. The results are a part of Vizslaâ€?s ongoing, fully funded 120,000-meter resource/discovery-based drill program.


• Napoleon Vein: NP-21-210 returned 1,803 grams per tonne (g/t) silver equivalent (AgEq) over 4.00 metres true width (mTW) (55 g/t silver, 20.38 g/t gold, 0.21 % lead and 2.99 % zinc)

• Napoleon Vein: NP-21-260 returned 484 g/t AgEq over 9.42 mTW (85 g/t silver, 2.73 g/t gold, 0.90 % lead and 4.13 % zinc) including:

• 1,113 g/t AgEq over 2.17 mTW (166 g/t silver, 7.91 g/t gold, 1.22 % Pb and 7.42 % Zn)

• Napoleon Hangingwall Vein: NP-21-238 returned 1,379 g/t AgEq over 2.7 mTW (746 g/t silver, 6.27 g/t gold, 0.75 % lead and 2.94 % zinc)

• Josephine Vein: NP-21-214 returned 4,917 g/t AgEq over 0.47 mTW (17 g/t silver, 60.5 g/t gold, 0.36 % lead and 1.40 % zinc)

“The most critical aspect of these results is that the mineralized zone at Napoleon has now grown over 350 metres since the last update, with the continuation of a wide, high grade vein to the south,” commented Michael Konnert, President and CEO.  “This reinforces our local exploration model of a high-grade, precious metal-rich core developed along strike and down plunge to the south, beneath the Ojo de Agua sub-zone, which remains a primary target for near-term resource growth at Napoleon.  Twenty-two of these drillholes were completed after the resource data cut-off, further demonstrating the potential for the Napoleon resource to increase in size. To aid in ongoing resource expansion and conversion, the Company has added a directional diamond drill, allowing for faster and cheaper targeted drilling of these down-dip extensions and looks forward to continuing to provide updates on the expansion of the Napoleon resource over the next few months.”

About the Napoleon Vein Corridor results

Drilling continues with five rigs focussed on resource expansion and exploration along the Napoleon Vein Corridor.  31 of today\-s results are from new drill holes completed within the resource wireframes and not included in the March 2022 resource estimate. (see Table 1).

22 of todayâ€?s results are new intercepts not included in the initial resource estimate and include multiple results from the Ojo de Agua Zone (“OdA”) at the southern end of Napoleon (see Table 2). Significant intercepts in this area include NP-22-260 (9.42 mTW at 484 g/t AgEq), and NP-22-244 (2.1m TW at 468 g/t AgEq), of which the latter is located ~350 metres south of any previous drillhole within the high-grade projected plunge of the Napoleon Vein. Additionally, hole NP-21-238 tested the depth potential at Napoleon, returning 2.37 mTW at 455 g/t AgEq, located ~500 metres below surface, representing the deepest intercept reported to date from the Napoleon Vein Corridor.

In 2021, the Company reported gold rich intervals from shallow drilling in the Ojo de Aqua Zone hosted within quartz-carbonate veins (see Company new release dated August 26, 2021). Intercepts included hole NP-21-150 (2.6 mTW at 3.95 g/t gold and 34 g/t silver) and hole NP-21-153 (1.4 mTW at 6.87 g/t gold and 55 g/t silver).  The Companyâ€?s improved understanding of the controls on mineralization suggests Ojo de Agua may be the top of the mineralized horizon, and increased grades and widths may be intersected at depth. Drilling has further validated this interpretation, highlighting the Ojo de Agua Zone as a primary target for continued drilling to define the full extent of high-grade mineralization intersected to date.

The Napoleon Hangingwall Vein (HW1) continues to grow with intercepts returning both locally very high grades and robust widths. Drilling from east to west allows for complimentary testing of the Hangingwall Vein, while targeting the main Napoleon structure. To date, the Napoleon Hangingwall Vein remains robust towards the south as demonstrated by hole NP-21-238 (2.7 mTW at 1,379 g/t AgEq).

At Josephine, drilling has defined two primary zones of mineralization, one in the north and another in the south (see Figure 1). Drilling remains ongoing in the central zone beneath these resource areas.  Josephine appears to be a sub-ordinate vein to the main Napoleon Vein and contains high-grade centers surrounded by lower grade mineralization unlike the Napoleon Vein, which has near continuous mineralization grading >150 g/t AgEq along 2,500 metres of strike.

The Company is rapidly growing resources on all three veins within the Napoleon Corridor and expects continued success with its proven exploration model as it infills and expands on these intercepts.

About the Panuco project

The newly consolidated Panuco silver-gold project is an emerging high-grade discovery located in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, near the city of Mazatlán. The 6,754-hectare, past producing district benefits from over 75 kilometres of total vein extent, 35 kilometres of underground mines, roads, power, and permits.

The district contains intermediate to low sulfidation epithermal silver and gold deposits related to siliceous volcanism and crustal extension in the Oligocene and Miocene. Host rocks are mainly continental volcanic rocks correlated to the Tarahumara Formation.

The Panuco Project hosts an estimated in-situ indicated mineral resource of 61.1Moz AgEq and an in situ inferred resource of 45.6Moz AgEq (see Company news release dated March 1, 2022).

A technical report is being prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI-43-101”) and will be available on the Companyâ€?s website and SEDAR within 30 days of the date of the Companyâ€?s March 1, 2022, news release announcing the resource estimate.

About Vizsla Silver

Vizsla Silver is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, focused on advancing its flagship, 100%-owned Panuco silver-gold project located in Sinaloa, Mexico. To date, Vizsla has completed over 140,000 metres of drilling at Panuco leading to the discovery of several new high-grade veins. For 2022, Vizsla has budgeted +120,000 metres of resource/discovery-based drilling, designed to upgrade, and expand the maiden resource as well as test other high priority targets across the district.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

Drill core and rock samples were shipped to ALS Limited in Zacatecas, Zacatecas, Mexico and in North Vancouver, Canada for sample preparation and for analysis at the ALS laboratory in North Vancouver.  The ALS Zacatecas and North Vancouver facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified. Silver and base metals were analyzed using a four-acid digestion with an ICP finish and gold was assayed by 30-gram fire assay with atomic absorption (“AA”) spectroscopy finish. Over limit analyses for silver, lead and zinc were re-assayed using an ore-grade four-acid digestion with AA finish.

Control samples comprising certified reference samples, duplicates and blank samples were systematically inserted into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the Company�s quality assurance / quality control protocol.

Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources

The scientific and technical information in this news release was prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 which differs significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The terms \”measured mineral resource\”, \”indicated mineral resource\” and \”inferred mineral resource\” used in this video are in reference to the mining terms defined in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Standards (the “CIM Definition Standards”), which definitions have been adopted by NI 43-101. Accordingly, information contained in this video providing descriptions of our mineral deposits in accordance with NI 43-101 may not be comparable to similar information made public by other U.S. companies subject to the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.

You are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral resources will ever be converted into reserves. Pursuant to CIM Definition Standards, “inferred mineral resources” are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Such geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. An inferred mineral resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an indicated mineral resource and must not be converted to a mineral reserve. However, it is reasonably expected that the majority of inferred mineral resources could be upgraded to indicated mineral resources with continued exploration. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource is economically or legally mineable. Disclosure of “contained ounces” in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves” by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures.

Canadian standards, including the CIM Definition Standards and NI 43-101, differ significantly from standards in the SEC Industry Guide 7. Effective February 25, 2019, the SEC adopted new mining disclosure rules under subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “SEC Modernization Rules”), with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. The SEC Modernization Rules replace the historical property disclosure requirements included in SEC Industry Guide 7. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources”. Information regarding mineral resources contained or referenced in this video may not be comparable to similar information made public by companies that report according to U.S. standards. While the SEC Modernization Rules are purported to be “substantially similar” to the CIM Definition Standards, readers are cautioned that there are differences between the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definitions Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral resources that the Company may report as “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources” under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules.
