VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR; OTCQB: HAMRF) (the “Company” Where “Silver Hammer”) is pleased to announce that the first drill hole of an 11-hole Phase II diamond drill program (“Phase II Drill Program”) has been completed at its former Silver Strand project in Idaho.

The Phase II drilling program, which utilizes the company‘s established underground drill station, is focused on expanding known silver-gold mineralization further down dip, while testing the potential for additional mineralized downfalls ( see figure 1). The Company has generated priority targets based on a drone-assisted magnetic survey, Phase I drilling results and the integration of historical drill data acquired from previous operators of the Silver Strand project (see the press release of January 26, 2022).

“We are excited to return to our flagship project and move forward with our Phase II drilling program at Silver Strand. We have drill holes designed to test up to three times deeper than our previous phase of drilling and a series of other holes that will test the system laterally with the aim of finding parallel troughs southeast of the main trend of the mine,” said Chairman and CEO Morgan Lekström. “We believe the potential for additional discoveries at Silver Strand is excellent and the discovery of new high-grade zones of gold-silver mineralization would demonstrate the large-scale potential that we believe is possible here.”

NISS, the Company’s drilling contractor, commenced drilling and successfully completed the first hole. Approximately 1,100 meters of drilling is currently planned with the possibility of expanding the program depending on core observations and initial assay results. Silver Hammer continues to use the company’s underground drill station to deliver a much better return on investment per meter drilled. The Phase II drilling program is expected to last approximately seven weeks, with assay results to follow in the fourth quarter of 2022.
