VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 20, 2020 / Silver Elephant Mining Corp. ("Silver Elephant" or the "Company") (TSX:ELEF)(OTCQX:SILEF)(Frankfurt:1P2) announces it has engaged Mercator Geological Services Limited ("Mercator") to prepare an updated Technical Report (the "Report") as defined under National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) for the Pulacayo-Paca Project. The project is located in Bolivia, 107 km northeast of Sumitomo Corporation's San Cristobal silver mine, 210 km southwest of New Pacific Metals Corp.'s Silver Sand project, and 139 km north of Pan American Silver Corp.'s San Vicente silver mine.
Between 2008 and 2017, there has been cumulative of 69,739 meters of drilling at Pulacayo and 18,160 meters of drilling at Paca. The Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") will function as an update to the Company's currently filed technical report dated October 20, 2017, taking into account changes in metal prices, the results from recent drilling campaigns in late 2019 and early 2020, and constraint optimization such as cut-off grades and strip ratios. The Report will include separate NI43-101 MRE's for both the Pulacayo and Paca mineral deposits that comply with the reporting guidelines of the CIM Definitions Standards for Mineral Resources and Reserves.
The Company also reports that the national COVID-19 quarantine in Bolivia was lifted in late-June. While the Company has access to the Pulacayo Paca Project, restrictions remain within the nearest Town of Uyuni, which is still under quarantine. This limits the Company's ability to provide safe and adequate work environment for its team at this time. Silver Elephant will resume exploration activities at Pulacayo when it is safe and practical to do so.
Separately, the Company reports that it expects to receive assay results later this month from 2 infill drill holes completed within the Pulacayo resource in February 2020.
