Silver Wolf Announces Assays from On-Going Surface Sampling Program at its Ana Maria Property Including 1,536 g/t Silver, and 33% Lead

VANCOUVER, B.C., August 9, 2022: Silver Wolf Exploration Ltd. (OTCQB: SWLFF) (TSX-V: SWLF) (“Silver Wolf” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from the one hundred and fifty-five (155) grab samples collected during the on-going surface sample program at the Ana Maria Property in Durango, Mexico. These rock samples yield several high-grade results, with values up to 1,536 g/t of silver, 34.0% lead and 19.4% zinc. The grades are consistent with previous rock samples taken and demonstrate that a mineralized trend can be readily identified, extending over 1 kilometre.

The grade contours shown below capture all the geochemical samples taken to date at the southern Ana Maria claim and showcase clear geochemical anomalies which are being investigated in conjunction with other exploratory techniques including geologic fieldwork, geophysical surveying and remote sensing approaches.

“In this round of sampling at the southern Ana Maria claim we continue to see high-grade silver, lead and zinc values with a clear NW-SE emerging trend,” said Peter Latta, President. “Similar to the previous round of sampling, these results confirm the presence of high-grade lead and silver which are typically associated with intrusion related carbonate replacement deposits (CRD). Given the extent of the mineralization over a strike-length of > 1,000 metres, and surface exposures with numerous historic workings, it would suggest that a large mineral deposit may be contained on the property.”

Ana Maria Exploration Work
The southern Ana Maria claim is hosted by the Cretaceous Aurora limestone formation.  The geological team has been mapping the hydrothermal alteration assemblages and zoning patterns around showings and prospects of known CRD mineralization.

Based on the updated and extended sample database of 808 rock samples it is observed that Ag-Pb-Zn mineralization has a preferred linear orientation along a NW-SE trend. Mineralization is hosted in recrystallized limestone associated with a system of mantos and breccias with thicknesses ranging from 15 to 50 cm, and the presence of fine-grained black sulfides. Mineralized breccias contain sulfide clasts of 0.5 to 1 cm size with presence of abundant calcite veins and oxides such as hematite and jarosite. Common hydrothermal minerals also include calcite, siderite, manganese, and quartz. The orientation of mineralized breccia bodies is controlled by NW-SE and NE-SW structures with inclinations ranging from 55° to 75°. The folding of the limestone units is interpreted to control location of mineralization and is currently being investigated as a targeting method.

The southern Ana Maria property is shown in Figure 1 with location of samples with lead or zinc grades greater than 0.4%. These grab samples are listed below the map in Table 1.

Silver Wolf has been following a structured approach to exploration, as laid out in the NI 43-101 Technical Report, which is filed on SEDAR, and consists of field mapping, sampling, LIDAR and hyperspectral imaging and electromagnetic geophysical surveying. The Silver Wolf team is interpreting the data to finalize the drill targets planned for 2022/2023. 

Highlights from Ana Maria Central and Ana Maria South are indicated in the tables below.  The complete list of samples will be available on the website.

Table 1 Significant Assay Results of Grab Samples: The samples with silver grades higher than 100 ppm are highlighted in blue, and the lead or zinc grades with values greater than 0.4% are highlighted in red.

Silver Wolf has updated the contour maps for silver, lead and zinc with the new assay data (Figures 3-5). These maps show the grade intensity and of the respective element being mapped. The grade contours represent anomalies that, when combined with the anomalies generated in the geophysical and remote sensing surveys, will provide a basis for prioritizing drill targets.

Corporate Update
Silver Wolf has granted incentive stock options for the purchase of 690,000 shares at a price of $0.15 per share exercisable on or before August 8, 2027, to directors, officers, consultants, and employees of the Company. The options are subject to the Company's stock option plan.

On June 16, 2022, the Company announced the closing of its private placement of 4,014,400 units. Three officers of the Company participated in the private placement for a total of 333,333 units.

Sampling and Assay Methods
Grab samples are selective in nature, and do not necessarily reflect the general geology of the Ana Maria property. Sampling and analyses of rock samples is subject to SWLF QA/QC protocols. Control samples are routinely used including standards, blank and field duplicate samples. Samples were submitted to the SGS Laboratory facility in Durango, Mexico. Multi-element analyses are completed using 4-acid digest methods (ICP14B). Any zinc, lead, copper or manganese samples exceeding 10,000 ppm (1%) are assayed using over limit methods (ICP90Q). Gold is analyzed by lead fusion fire assay with atomic absorption spectrometry (FAA313) and gravimetric finish above over limit. For silver above over limit, a lead fusion fire assay with gravimetric finish is used (FAG313).
