Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 18, 2021) - Hi Ho Silver Resources Inc. (CSE: HHS) (OTC Pink: HHSRF) (FSE: H9T1) ("Hi Ho" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired, by staking, two promising silver properties: the Isle Silver Property and the Tatler Silver Property.
The Isle Silver Property consists of 6 units totalling 123.97ha in the Slocan Mining Division located 41km northwest of Kaslo, BC. Mineralization is hosted within a 20m wide shear zone. High silver values occur with massive sulphides on the apex of dragfolds within the shear zone. A chip sample across 0.6m of vein assayed 2358g/tonne silver, 29.9% Pb, 10.4% Sb and 9.7 g/tonne Au as sampled in 1980 by D.W. Tully, P.Eng. (1980). Minor diamond drilling and a small bulk sample returned lower results.
The Tatler Silver Property consists of 22 units totalling 452.97 ha in the Golden Mining Division located 35km southwest of Invermere, BC. There are eight documented silver showings at the Tatler Silver Property; the mineralization is localized along fault structures in limey sediments and in replacement bodies associated with these structures. The following sample results were obtained by N. Tribe, P.Eng., in 1990:
At the Copper King prospect a 1.0 metre wide chip sample across the vein assayed 75 grams per tonne silver, 1.22% copper, 1.08% zinc and 0.25% lead.
At the Great Northern prospect a 1.2 metre chip sample across the mineralized vein assayed 35 grams per tonne silver, 4.37% lead and 1.05% copper (Property File - see 082KSE004, Sheppard, EP (1971): Geological Report on the Tatler Group).
At the Butler prospect the vein has been explored with two adits and a 150 metre long crosscut. A 50 cm chip sample across the mineralized vein assayed 250 grams per tonne silver, 3.0% copper, 1.26% zinc and 0.5% lead.
The Imperial prospect consists of five quartz-barite veins containing some tetrahedrite and azurite. The main vein is 90 to 130 centimetres wide and has been exposed for approximately 30 metres along strike. The veins strike 155 degrees and dip 80 degrees west. All veins are within the middle dolomite member of the Mount Nelson Formation. Mineralization appears to be associated with tensional fractures on the crest of a northwest-trending anticline. A 1.22 metre wide chip sample across the main vein assayed 210 grams per tonne silver and 4.03 per cent copper.
The historic work on both these properties was conducted by competent professionals. However, the historic work was completed before the advent of modern 43-101 standards and cannot be considered reliable. The only relevance herein is strictly geological information. The Company intends to conduct follow-up sampling as soon as possible to obtain current information. The Company does not consider the historic sampling as current or as an indication of what might be found on the claim holdings.
Due to snow conditions the Company has not completed any current work on the properties. Since there has been road access in the past the Company intends to conduct a sampling program later in 2021.
