Vancouver, British Columbia- (Newsfile Corp. – April 17, 2018) – SilverCrest Metals Inc. (TSXV: SIL) (OTCQX: SVCMF) (“SilverCrest” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce drill results from the Luigi Vein on the Las Chispas Property (the “Property”) located in Sonora, Mexico. SilverCrest discovered the Luigi Vein in the footwall of the Las Chispas Vein in mid-2017 but it remained un-named until the Company completed enough drilling to delineate an actual mineral vein. Several of the announced holes in this release were previously disclosed as an un-named vein. There are 23 known epithermal veins on the Property. The Company has tested ten (10) of these 23 veins (the Babicanora, Babicanora Footwall, Las Chispas, Giovanni, La Blanquita, William Tell, Varela, Granaditas, Luigi and Amethyst veins), all of which have drill-intersected high-grade mineralization. The Luigi Vein was not included in the recently announced maiden resource (refer to the Company’s news release dated February 26, 2018).
