VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 18, 2022 / Fabled Silver Gold Corp. ("Fabled" or the "Company") (TSXV:FCO)(OTC PINK:FBSGF)(FSE:7NQ) announces the results of surface diamond drilling from the upgraded 14,400 -meter drill program on the "Santa Maria" Property in Parral, Mexico.
Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President, remarks, "As you can see below, planned definition hole SM20-49 was designed to fill in a drill poor gap in the past resource area and to follow the down dip mineralized plunge intercepted in drill holes SM20-47 and 48. Previously reported hole SM20-47 reported a broad zone of 13.10 meters grading 98.31 g/t Ag Eq with numerous higher-grade intercepts within, while hole SM20-48 returned 110.81 g/t Ag Eq over 24.50 meters. See Figure 1 below.

Definition Diamond Drill Hole SM20-49 was drilled at a dip or angle of -75 degrees for a planned total drilled length of 313 meters, and was designed to hit the targeted zone at approximately -280 meters below surface.
Before intercepting the targeted Santa Maria Structure at depth, the previously newly discovered mineralized hydrothermal breccia was intersected once again, in this case from 276.50 - 289.90 meters. See Photo 1, Figure 2 and Table 1 below.

The lower contact of the breccia zone from 288.00 - 288.90 reported 98.03 g/t Ag Eq, See Photo 2, Figure 2 and Table 1 below.
As previously reported in hole SM20-47 and 48, this is the same newly discovered mineralized hydrothermal breccia that was intersected and reported 162.08 g/t Ag Eq over 0.95 meters and 59.96 g/t Ag Eq over 1.50 meters, respectively.

The main targeted Santa Maria breccia structure was successfully intersected over 7.80 meters from 293.10 - 300.90 meters and contained a hydrothermal breccia with pervasive silicification, quartz - carbonate reneal matrix, and oxidized sulphides. The entire 7.70 meters returned 190.33 g/t Ag Eq with 0.51 g/t Au,

The upper contact of the Santa Maria Footwall breccia zone from 293.10 - 297.00 meters returned 328.44 g/t Ag Eq with 0.65 g/t Au over 3.90 meters, See Figure 2, Photo 3, Table 1 below.

Including 572.98 g/t Ag Eq with 1.03 g/t Au from 294.00 - 295.90 meters See Figure 2 above, Table 1, Photo 4 below.

Definition diamond drill hole SM20-49 was designed to test the structure horizon at the -275 meters vertical depth, and in-fill the lack of drill pierce points into the structure.
Hole SM20-49 was successful, once again, not only in the infill of a drill poor area, intercepting 190.33 g/t Ag Eq silver mineralization over 7.80 meters, but following the vertical down plunge of the Santa Maria footwall breccia structure by -190 meters from hole SM20-47 above which reported 13.10 meters of mineralization and hole SM20-48, 50 meters east and plus 15 meters in elevation which returned 24.50 meters of 110.81 g/t Ag Eq. These intercepts will certainly enhance the silver resources in this area.
As we dial-in the definition drilling and vector in on not only the new up hole hydrothermal breccia discovery but the main Santa Maria breccia structure and the high grade components thereof, the understanding of the mineralization and related plunges and rakes of the higher grade components are becoming more evident.
Final definition drill hole SM20-50 has been completed and submitted for assay. See Figure 3 below.
QA QC Procedure
Analytical results of sampling reported by Fabled Silver Gold represent core samples that have been sawn in half with half of the core sampled and submitted by Fabled Silver Gold staff directly to ALS Chemex, Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico. Samples were crushed, split, and pulverized as per ALS Chemex method PREP-31, then analyzed for ME-ICP61 33 element package by four acid digestion with ICP-AES Finish. ME-GRA21 method for Au and Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish, 30g nominal sample weight.
Over Limit Methods
For samples triggering precious metal over-limit thresholds of 10 g/t Au or 100 g/t Ag, the following is being used:
Au-GRA21 Au by fire assay and gravimetric finish with 30 g sample.
Ag-GRA21 Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish.
Fabled Silver Gold monitors QA/QC using commercially sourced standards and locally sourced blank materials inserted within the sample sequence at regular intervals.
About Fabled Silver Gold Corp.
Fabled is focused on acquiring, exploring and operating properties that yield near-term metal production. The Company has an experienced management team with multiple years of involvement in mining and exploration in Mexico. The Company's mandate is to focus on acquiring precious metal properties in Mexico with blue-sky exploration potential.
The Company has entered into an agreement with Golden Minerals Company (NYSE American and TSX: AUMN) to acquire the Santa Maria Property, a high-grade silver-gold property situated in the center of the Mexican epithermal silver-gold belt. The belt has been recognized as a significant metallogenic province, which has reportedly produced more silver than any other equivalent area in the world.
