VANCOUVER, Aug. 2, 2016 /CNW/ – SilverCrest Metals Inc. (“SilverCrest” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the first drill hole results at its Las Chispas Project (“Las Chispas”) located in Sonora State, Mexico. Las Chispas is in a historic silver-gold mining district which presently hosts two nearby precious metal producers. Historic information indicates that only three veins, the Las Chispas, William Tell and Babicanora, of the fourteen historically reported veins at Las Chispas had documented production, between 1880 and 1930. SilverCrest’s initial focus is on these three veins. To the Company’s knowledge, none of the known veins have been drilled prior to the Company’s current campaign.
