Silver Elephant: 37 Triunfo Samples Assayed Up to 8.3 g/t AuEq, 1,000 Meter Drilling Commences Today

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 19, 2020 / Silver Elephant Mining Corp. ("Silver Elephant" or "the Company") (TSX:ELEF) (OTCQX:SILEF) (Frankfurt:1P2N) announces that it has received its first chip sampling results on its recently acquired polymetallic (gold, silver, zinc & lead) El Triunfo Project in Bolivia.

A total of 103 chip samples were collected from outcrops at surface and from underground adits and tunnels accessing the main east-west mineralized trend. The width of the samples varies from 1.0 to 5.3m, exhibiting an average width of 2.5m.

These results confirm that the El Triunfo project exhibits near-surface Au-Ag-Pb-Zn mineralization where gold and silver account for a majority of the value.

Sampling was conducted on two priority areas, known as Block A and Block B. These 2 contiguous blocks, located at the western portion of the property, span a total strike length of 750m at various widths from 20 to 100 m. Artisanal mining has been developed along predominantly east-west mineralized trends in the area (please refer to Company's news release dated July 13th, 2020).

The sampling returned significant results from both Blocks. Table 1 shows the assay results, equal to and over 1.0 g/t Au Equivalent which represent over 36% of the samples (37 / 103).

Denser sets of veins and veinlets hosted by shales and quartzites appear to correlate with higher grades. The strike lengths of these mineralized trends have been recognized as continuing along several hundreds of meters at surface.

The Company's initial drill program, which started this Wednesday and is fully funded by recent warrant exercises, entails 4 holes total 1,000 meters that may be expanded.

The drilling will step out to the east and west of historic drill hole TR001 on Block B. TR001 had returned assay results of 94.2 meters grading 0.39 g/t Au, 21.8 g/t Ag 0.65%Pb, 0.39% Zn , and (0.95 gpt AuEq*), according to Solitario Resources SEC 10K filings in 2008.

District geological mapping and geophysics is also planned, as the host and accessory mineral properties associated with the mineralization at El Triunfo can be detected by geophysical imaging methods such as induced polarization (IP).

Maps of the sample locations are posted at: https://www.silverelef.com/

(*) Gold equivalent calculation uses a gold price of $1,795, a zinc price of $0.93, a lead price of $0.80, and a silver price of $18.30 (all USD), and assumes a 100% metallurgical recovery. Gold equivalent values can be calculated using the following formula: AuEq = Au g/t + (Ag g/t x 0.0102) + (Zn % x 0.3551) + (Pb % x 0.3055).
