VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR; OTCQB: HAMRF) (the “Company” Where “Silver Hammer”) is pleased to announce its intention to commence an 11-hole Phase II diamond drilling program from the Company’s established underground drill station before the end of July at its former Silver Strand project in Idaho.
The Phase II drill program will focus on expanding the known silver-gold zone down dip and will also assess the potential for additional mineralized downfalls (Figure 1). Targets for this program are based on exploration work completed by Silver Hammer in 2021, including a drone-assisted magnetic survey, Phase I drilling, as well as the integration of drill data acquired from the former owners of the Silver Strand Project (see the press release of January 26, 2022).
“This Phase II drilling program will build on the results of the Phase I program completed in late 2021, which confirmed that silver and gold sulphide mineralization extends beneath historic mine workings” , said Chairman and CEO Morgan Lekstrom. “As with Phase I, we will use an existing underground drift and drill bay, which we rehabilitated last year, to begin testing the depth extent of the known ore body as well as testing additional ore chutes. in a very cost effective way.”

The Company has signed a contract with Nasco Industrial Services and Supply, which will use 3.5 inch diameter HQ drill core for good core recovery and relatively large core samples for reliable assays.
Silver Hammer is also progressing exploration at the Eliza project in Nevada with a detailed follow-up soil grid sampling program, the results of which are expected in late July.
