Los Reyes Gold and Silver Project

Los Reyes is a rapidly developing, high-grade, low-sulphidation epithermal gold-silver project located in Sinaloa, Mexico, in the prolific Sierra Madre mining district. Historical operating results indicate that five separate operations at Los Reyes produced an estimated 1 million ounces of gold and 60 million ounces of silver between 1770 and 1990. Prior to Prime’s acquisition, recent Los Reyes operators had spent approximately $20 million on exploration, engineering and pre-feasibility studies. The project remains underexplored as only 40% of known structures have been systematically drilled leaving 10 km of untested strike length. Los Reyes holds potential for further discoveries and resource expansion.

Prime Mining acquired Los Reyes in 2019, completed initial data collection, field mapping and trenching in 2020 and completed a Phase 1 exploration program in 2021 that included 25,650m of drilling. The results indicate that the deposits are much larger than previously reported and that there is potential for new discoveries outside of the currently defined resources. The Company is currently conducting a 50,000 meter Phase 2 exploration program.
