Vancouver, British Columbia, December 3, 2020: Prismo Metals Inc. (the “Company” or “Prismo“) (CSE: PRIZ) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire the remaining 25% interest that it does not already control in the Palos Verdes project, located in the Concordia Municipality of the state of Sinaloa, Mexico (the “Option Agreement”). The Option Agreement gives the Company control of 100% of the concession that makes up the project.
Under the terms of the Option Agreement, the Company will pay the optionor an aggregate of US$250,000 in cash over a four-year period, with the initial payment of US$30,000 made on signing. Additionally, 100,000 warrants will be awarded, with each warrant entitling its owner to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of CAD $0.35 per share for two years from the date of execution of the Option Agreement, and subject to regulatory approvals. Execution of a parallel agreement assigning the rights of the concession to a Mexican subsidiary of Prismo being incorporated is in progress.
Prismo also announces it has commenced a minimum 500-metre drilling program with mobilisation of the drill to the site. Results should be available in early 2021.
The drilling program will consist of four to five holes, with the longest planned at 150-175m. Targets are to test the vein lateral to, and below, high-grade intercepts drilled in May 2018. The best intercept from that program was 8.4 g/t Au and 2,336 g/t Ag, over 0.8m true width (See Prismo press release of September 30, 2020). The mineralized intervals reported are similar to many of those reported by Vizsla Resources Corp. from veins further west in the same district
About Palos Verdes
The Palos Verdes project is located in the historic Pánuco-Copala silver-gold district in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, approximately 65 kilometers NE of Mazatlán, Sinaloa, in the Municipality of Concordia. The Palos Verdes concession (claim) covers 700 meters of strike length of the Palos Verdes vein, a member of the north-easterly trending vein family located in the eastern part of the district outside of the area of modern exploration. Shallow drilling (<100m) conducted in 2018 on the Palos Verdes Vein was targeted 30 to 50 meters beneath largely barren vein outcrops and cut a well mineralized multistage vein two to seven metres wide with narrow intervals of high-grade precious metal values and subordinate base metals (see table of intercepts at www.prismometals.com). This mineralization is open in all directions and the currently planned drilling program is designed to follow it along strike and to depth.
Prismo is engaged in mineral exploration and the acquisition of mineral property assets in Mexico. The Company has an option to acquire a 75% interest in the Palos Verdes Property, which lies within the historic high-grade silver-gold Pánuco-Copala Mining District in northwestern Mexico where Vizsla Resources Corp. have reported considerable success recently. Palos Verdes currently constitutes the material property of the Company.
