CMC Metals Ltd. Encounters Exceptional Silver Grades and Confirms Mineralization in a Significant New Zone at Silver Hart

October 16, 2019

Vancouver, BC.: CMC Metals Ltd. – (“the Company”) (TSX-V: CMB) is pleased to announce assay results from recent trenching on the TM zone at Silver Hart and the identification of mineralization in the new KW Zone at the Company’s 100% owned Silver Hart Project in Yukon, Canada.

Michael Scholz, Chairman of the Company noted, “We are extremely pleased with the initial results from our 2019 exploration program. The results will support our plans to conduct a bulk sample in the TM Zone in 2020. The identification of the new KW Zone also demonstrates the continued potential at Silver Hart which has not been explored extensively outside of the main zone or at depth within the main zone.”

Three trenches were completed on the TM Zone to evaluate near surface material for the planned bulk sample and determine whether grades of silver, lead and zinc existed within the footwall and hanging wall as past efforts have primarily focused on a narrow zone focused on the high grade veins (see Figure 1).

The results confirmed that reasonable silver grades and to a lesser degree lead and zinc values exist in both the hanging wall and footwall and support an attractive mineable width that will be further evaluated in the planned bulk sample.

Key highlights from recent trenching in the TM Zone:

Trench 1 (SHTR-TM-01): 10.2 metres grading 501.4 g/t silver, 6.34% lead, and 0.4% zinc including 5.2 metres grading 950.7 g/t silver, 12.4% lead and 0.64% zinc.

Trench 2 (SHTR-TM-02): 10.5 metres grading 898.4 g/t silver, 0.97% lead and 0.29% zinc including 5 metres grading 1,140 g/t silver, 0.84% lead and 0.32% zinc.

Trench 3 (SHTR-TM-03): This trench did not extend totally through the mineralized zone but provided 2 metres grading 537 g/t silver, 0.42% lead and 0.18% zinc.

Kevin Brewer, President and CEO notes, “These trench results potentially dispel the previous view of Silver Hart as comprising only of narrow high grade veins. Future exploration efforts will further examine mineralization within the hanging wall and footwall material and we will re-examine our extensive archived drill core material to test this potential next year. This is extremely positive for the project. In addition we are very excited with the identification of the new KW Zone which we have evaluated with a soil survey (results are pending) and confirmed mineralization from three grab samples on the northeastern end of the zone that assayed:

Sample KW-1: 67 g/t silver with 3.83% lead and 5.84% zinc

Sample KW-2: 18 g/t silver with 2.82% lead and 0.54% zinc

Sample KW-3: 174 g/t silver with 0.018% lead and 0.05% zinc

Grab samples from previously identified zones within the main zone have also further confirmed the presence of high grade silver mineralization in the upper part of the TM Zone and the S Zone (see Figure 2).

A grab sample from the upper northeastern end of the TM Zone assayed:

Sample TM upper-1: 7,260 g/t silver with 79.3% lead and 0.91% zinc.

Two grab samples obtained from the S Zone assayed:

Sample S-1: 5,733 g/t silver with 49.9% lead and 0.91% zinc

Sample S-2: 4,784 g/t silver with 74.4% lead and 4.2% zinc.

The Company plans to further evaluate the S Zone in the proposed 2020 bulk test sample.

Kevin Brewer added, “We further evaluated these areas with drill holes in the 2019 program and assays from good intersections of mineralization in these areas are pending and are expected to be available in the very near future. The 2019 program including drilling, trenching, soil sampling of two new potential zones testing historic VLF-EM anomalies, and prospecting efforts are expected to greatly improve our understanding of the extent of mineralization and the overall potential in the Silver Hart property that has never been properly evaluated with modern exploration techniques which will also include a review of the existing resource model to identify additional resources at depth. Silver Hart has only been drilled in a few holes to a depth of approximately 90 metres and remains open.”


Assays were completed by Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories Canada Ltd. and quality control and sampling supervision at Silver Hart was provided by Longford Exploration Services Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C. who are a fully independent geological consulting company.
