Prismo Metals Commences Drill Program At Palos Verdes

Vancouver, British Columbia, August 18th, 2022 – Prismo Metals Inc. (CSE: PRIZ and OTCQB: PMOMF) (“Prismo” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its 2,000-meter drill program at its Palos Verdes project located in Sinaloa, Mexico has commenced. The Palos Verdes property is contiguous to the Panuco silver-gold project of Vizsla Silver Corp. (TSXV: VZLA). The drilling campaign is expected to last approximately two months. 

The drill program is designed to test the Palos Verdes vein and a structural intersection with a second vein at depths where it is believed that potential for a large ore shoot is present, similar to the drilling accomplished by Vizsla Silver on their adjacent land package.  A minimum 2,000 meter program has been contracted with MW Drilling.  Previous shallow drilling has intersected high grade mineralization with the best intercept of 2,336 g/t Ag and 8.42 g.t Au over a true width estimated at 0.8 meters within a larger mineralized interval with 1,098 g/t Ag and 3.75 g/t Au over a true width of 2.3 meters (see Prismo’s news release dated September 30, 2020). 

Regarding the drill program, Dr. Craig Gibson, President and CEO of the Company, said: “We are pleased to be able to conduct our program to drill holes to intersect the Palos Verdes vein at significantly deeper levels than in the previous drilling campaigns.  We will be able to test the vein several hundred meters underneath the surface exposures with the first hole being underway.”

Prismo also announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement, issuing 750,000 common shares at a price of $0.20 per share for gross proceeds of $150,000 in the coming days. The private placement will be carried out pursuant to prospectus exemptions of applicable securities laws and is subject to final acceptance by the Canadian Securities Exchange. There will be no finder fee paid in this private placement.
