Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (HAMR) has announced plans to kick off an 11-hole Phase II diamond drill program at its past-producing Silver Strand project in Idaho.

As a result, Silver Hammer has signed a contract with Nasco Industrial Services and Supply, which will use HQ, 3.5-inch diameter drill core to obtain good core recovery and relatively large core samples for reliable assays.

The Phase II drill program is expected to focus on expanding the known silver-gold zone down-dip and will also assess the potential for additional mineralized chutes.

Targets for this program are based on exploration work performed by Silver Hammer in 2021, including a drone-supported magnetic survey, Phase I drilling, as well integration of drilling data acquired from previous owners of the Silver Strand Project

“This Phase II drill program will build upon results of the Phase I program completed late 2021, which confirmed that silver and gold-bearing sulphide mineralization extends beneath the historic mine workings,” said President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom.

“As with Phase I, we will utilize an existing underground drift and drilling bay, which we rehabilitated last year, to begin to test the depth extent of the known mineralized body as well as to test for additional mineralized chutes in a very cost-effective manner,” he added.

Silver Hammer is also progressing exploration of the Eliza Project in Nevada with a detailed follow-up soil grid sampling program. The results are expected in late July.

Silver Hammer Mining Corp. is a junior resource company advancing the flagship past-producing Silver Strand Mine in the Coeur d’Alene Mining District in Idaho, USA, as well both the Eliza Silver Project and the Silverton Silver Mine in one of the world’s most prolific mining jurisdictions in Nevada and the Lacy Gold Project in British Columbia, Canada.

Silver Hammer Mining Corp (HAMR) was unchanged at $0.345 at 11:21 ET.
