SilverCrest (TSXV: $SIL.V) Reports More High Grade Underground Sampling Results at Las Chispas; Update on Phase II Drill Program

SilverCrest (TSXV: $SIL.V) Reports More High Grade Underground Sampling Results at Las Chispas; Update on Phase II Drill Program



VANCOUVER - January 18, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) SilverCrest Metals Inc. (TSXV: $SIL.V) is pleased to provide an update on the underground rehabilitation and drill programs at its Las Chispas Property ("Las Chispas") located in Sonora, Mexico, and report on additional high grade underground sampling results on the 550 level of the Las Chispas Vein.



N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President & CEO, commented, "During Q4 2016, SilverCrest gained access to a majority of the historic workings on the Las Chispas Vein. This work was critical to further understand the continuity, widths and opportunities for intact high grade silver-gold mineralization. Initial sampling of a historic high grade area on the 550 level shows grades of up to 13.35 grams per tonne ("gpt") gold and 1,720 gpt silver or 2,721 gpt silver equivalent ("AgEq"; ratio 75 Ag : 1 Au and 100% metallurgical recovery) over 0.6 metres. Concurrently with the underground rehabilitation program, Phase II surface and underground drilling programs are underway with 12 core holes completed to date totalling approximately 2,400 metres. All 12 holes have intersected stockwork, veining and/or breccia. Drill results should be available for release in late-February."

Underground Rehabilitation Update
To date, the Company has accessed approximately 9 kilometres of underground workings, with an additional 2.5 kilometres to be explored over the next several months. As SilverCrest rehabilitates the underground workings, the Company continues to systemically collect samples at intervals of two to three metres along strike lengths of veins. The Company collected a total of 72 samples on the Las Chispas 550 level from 120 metres of underground access as reported below (see attached Figure and Photo). Of the 72 samples tested, 43 were mineralized samples with 19 used for true thickness assay composites stated below. The remaining samples were of hangingwall and footwall material. Sampling locations and widths are restricted to historic workings which may only represent part of the mineralized vein, stockwork, or breccia. The Company has previously drilled three holes in this area, intercepting high grade mineralization with true thicknesses from 1.0 to 7.2 metres. Further surface and underground drilling is planned as part of the Phase II program.
Weighted average composites from 19 samples showing true mineralized thicknesses on the 550 level are as follows:

·        2.6 metres grading 1.17 gpt Au and 242 gpt Ag or 330 gpt AgEq.
·        6.5 metres grading 4.36 gpt Au and 604 gpt Ag or 931 gpt AgEq (see attached photo).
·        3.0 metres grading 3.78 gpt Au and 507 gpt Ag or 790 gpt AgEq.

A weighted average composite for all 43 mineralized samples shows an approximate strike length of 32 metres averaging 3 metres in width and grading 2.73 gpt Au and 384 gpt Ag or 589 gpt AgEq (see Figure). Select high grade samples range from 0.76 gpt Au and 310 gpt Ag or 367 gpt AgEq to 13.35 gpt Au and 1,720 gpt Ag or 2,721 gpt AgEq (see below table).

The following table summarizes the 14 most significant un-composited assay results (uncut, undiluted) from the Las Chispas Vein 550 level:



All assays were completed by ALS Chemex in Hermosillo, Mexico, and North Vancouver, BC.

Phase II Drill Program Update
SilverCrest's current underground and surface drill programs are focused on four of the 19 veins identified at Las Chispas; the Las Chispas, William Tell, Babicanora and Varela veins. To date, the Company has drilled 12 holes for a total of 2,400 metres in the Phase II program. Surface drilling at the northern extension of the Las Chispas and William Tell veins is ongoing to further expand and grid drill for resource estimation. Underground drilling of three holes at the Babicanora Vein has been completed. All holes have intercepted quartz stockwork, quartz veining and shear zone. Assays are pending and will be released after compilation and consideration.

Aerecura Capital Corp Discusses the Mining Sector and Alternative Financing Options for Juniors

Aerecura Capital Corp Discusses the Mining Sector and Alternative Financing Options for Juniors

“2016 was an oasis year in what has been a long desert for financing junior miners “- David Stein, MSc., CFA


Point Roberts, WA, Delta BC, January 17, 2017 – Investorideas.com, a global news source and investor resource covering mining stocks releases an exclusive interview with David Stein, MSc., CFA, of Aerecura Capital Corp http://www.aerecuracapital.com/.

David talks to Cali Van Zant of Investorideas.com about the founding of his company, the current financing landscape and what he sees for the sector moving forward.


Q: Investorideas.com
David, can you share your background in the mining/ resource sector and how and when you founded your new firm Aerecura Capital?

A: David Stein, MSc, CFA, of Aerecura Capital Corp
Cali, I founded the Company just last year, at the same time I resigned as CEO of Aberdeen International.

As CEO of Aberdeen, I successfully repositioned the company to allow us to use our balance sheet to make private equity-style investments in the mining sector that were exclusive to Aberdeen – extremely important in the context of a public company. This was not accomplished overnight, but rather taking more than four years of intense energy; managing several successful exits in a declining resources market, spinning out the Ore Acquisition Partners fund, and developing new relationships in the private equity space.

Now moving on from Aberdeen, I founded Aerecura to focus investing my own capital on niche strategies in the mining sector that can generate high risk-adjusted returns, and at the same time to be a partner with technical expertise and investment experience for other institutional investors. Some of the niche strategies I have been looking at recently include hybrid debt, flow-through investing and secondary mining PE transactions. Building on my role as Portfolio Manager for Ore Acquisition Partners, LP (a secondary PE mining fund) I have decided to focus on growing this strategy – which I believe has much larger potential.


Q: Investorideas.com
What are your predictions for 2017 for the sector with the US election now concluded? The evening of the election gold spiked and has since settled in but there are a lot of bulls still out there – where do you see it headed short term and long term?

A: David Stein, MSc, CFA, of Aerecura Capital Corp
Despite the short-term expectations of rate increases, we are still in a negative real interest rate environment that should be positive for gold and precious metals. Rate increases (which are now expected) are inherently negative for gold in short term, however I believe it’s unlikely that rates will be increased above inflation, without triggering a significant recession. Therefore, I am bullish that in the longer term (1 year+) gold will perform well relative to other asset classes. I think the next year will be volatile until we can see some broader global themes start to take shape.


Q: Investorideas.com
The financing landscape has changed over the last few years with access to crowd funding and other different alternative financing options. Can you give us some insight as to what you have seen work and not work and some of the alternative financing options you offer for juniors?


A: David Stein, MSc, CFA, of Aerecura Capital Corp
2016 was an oasis year in what has been a long desert for financing junior miners. With stock prices on the rise from their multi-year lows, what I saw was that many well-managed and aggressive public companies were able to use their stock currency to get financings done. I would say the initial burst for crowdfunding was successful. However the actual dollars raised was tiny – reflecting that it is still early days in retail investor adoption combined with early days in a (potential?) bull market. I saw some interesting hybrid debt deals get done, with very favourable terms for the investor, but again the deal sizes were small.

The group I saw struggle the most was private mining juniors. In the early stages of a recovering public market, it has been difficult to compete for new capital with listed juniors. In my view there is still some tremendous value in this group, which will probably be rushing to go public in 2017.


Q: Investorideas.com
Your firm looks to invest in “under-the-radar and underserved investment strategies”. Can you give us some insight as to why this strategy and how this works for both investors and the companies you invest in?

A: David Stein, MSc, CFA, of Aerecura Capital Corp
At the moment, I am focused on providing liquidity in the secondary private equity market. There has been an explosion of private equity money dedicated to and invested in the sector be since 2012 – more than $10 billion was raised for dedicated mining PE products and many more dollars are in multi-strategy funds and off-market vehicles. Rather than competing directly with these other investors, Aerecura looks to be a partner and liquidity provider. This could be helping an investor that is changing strategy buy or sell private mining stakes, or it could be helping a larger mining company clean up its non-core holdings and generate cash to reinvest in the business. Aerecura does its own analysis and due diligence and invests its own capital alongside its partners in every deal.

Once I have a position in any particular company, I can provide my expertise to the management and board to help raise further capital and assist with strategic options as necessary.


Q: Investorideas.com
And lastly can you offer any advice for junior mining companies wanting to raise capital this year? 

A: David Stein, MSc, CFA, of Aerecura Capital Corp
I feel the outlook is still very uncertain, so avoid the temptation to time the market or over-shop your offering. Be prepared at all times to transact. Maintain on-going and positive relationships with as many types of investors as you can: from large strategic investors to retail investors. Keep your administrative affairs and governance in order, so that you can close quickly—which may be necessary in a volatile market.  If you have less than 18 months of budgeted capital, you should be preparing for a financing now.

About David Stein



David has been involved in finance and investment in the mining sector since 2001, most recently as President and CEO of Aberdeen International, a publicly traded mining-focused investment company. He remains a director and consultant to Aberdeen.

During 7 years with Aberdeen, David spearheaded a number of important investment initiatives, generating strong returns during the last bull market, and capitalizing on opportunistic transactions during the recent downturn for natural resources. Among those many deals was the spin-out of Ore Acquisition Partners LP in 2015, a private equity mining fund that he manages today.

Prior to Aberdeen, David started his career in finance with Cormark Securities’ predecessor, Sprott Securities Inc. where over 9 years he worked on both the investment banking and research teams as an Analyst, and later a Director and member of Cormark’s Executive Committee. While a research analyst, David achieved a strong reputation as innovative stock-picker, and was in many cases the first analyst to pick up coverage of small and micro-cap stocks that would later be acquired or have grown to be large cap stocks on the TSX today.
