CMC Update on Silver Hart (Yukon) 2018 Plan

03/08/18 09:03 AM EST


Vancouver, BC. / TheNewswire / March 8, 2018 - CMC Metals Ltd. - (the “Company”) (TSX-V: CMB) – is moving fo rward with preparations for a second consecutive season of development, in June-September, at its wholly-owned Silver Hart property, encompassing more than 2,100 hectares in the Watson Lake Mining District, Yukon Territory [“YT”] which comprise 116 contiguous full and partial mineral claims . The diamond drilling program last year at Silver Hart, carried out by Longford Exploration (“Longford”) geologists under a $500,000 budget, enabled the Company to assay current and historical drill core, as a result of which - as previously reported - significant intervals using a 300g silver equivalent cut-off grade were determined successfully . Since close to 90% of the area comprising the CMC claims at Silver Hart has yet to be explored, p otential for further high-grade silver-lead-zinc discovery remains considerable regarding this property .

Based upon both historic and recent Silver Hart exploration results, the Company has commissioned Longford to produce a 3D model based on the consolidation of extensive  drill data in hand, and is applying for permitting to undertake further resource readiness drilling of up to 2,000 metres during the forthcoming 2018 mining season in the YT. In connection with its intention to advance plans to concentrate this year, and ongoing, towards proving out the resource scope, the Company will be working with the Yukon Government [“YG”] in making necessary improvements to ensure ready access by personnel and equipment to the 43 km. road to the property. A remediation agreement dealing with the existing camp and future probable reclamation requirements at Silver Hart also has been secured with the YG. Under its terms, the Company posted a $146,070 bond, to be released at such time as CMC obtains a new approval that includes authorization to make use of the historical infrastructure on site, and which also includes obligations to reclaim it (on-claim road upgrades, the camp, Quonset hut, mill and crusher pads, other disturbed areas, tanks, and other miscellaneous equipment and materials).


The Silver Hart Property is located within the Rancheria District, YT, Canada. Diamond drill holes completed in 2017 targeted the M, KL, and TM zones. Drilling was designed to confirm and infill historic results, and extend known mineralization. Fourteen holes were completed to depths ranging from 43m to 79m. One hole was vertical and the remaining were inclined, ranging from -45o to -70o. The Company has a 30-man camp on the property. Certain bulk samples have been taken historically, and float concentrates prepared and sold. The Company did not undertake work on the property from 2013– 2016 inclusive.

The Company refers to its February 26, 2018 Press Release, and wishes to correct information set out therein, in that reference was made to the cancellation of 714,000 incentive stock options granted to directors which options were exercisable at $0.12 per share and set to expire on June 16, 2018.  Rather, reference should have reflected that 400,000 of the 714,000 options cancelled were set to expire June 16, 2018, and the remaining 314,000 options were set to expire June 12, 2019.


In addition, the expiration date of the newly reserved 3,300,000 incentive stock options referenced in our February 26, 2018 Press Release should reflect February 26, 2019, not February 22, 2019.
