VANCOUVER, BC – June 12, 2018 – SilverCrest Metals Inc. (“SilverCrest” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce new drill results for the Granaditas Vein and initial delineation of its high-grade footprint on the Las Chispas Property (the “Property”) located in Sonora, Mexico. The Company first drilled two holes in the Granaditas Vein in 2017 (see news release dated October 19, 2017) and re-commenced drilling of this vein in early 2018. The compilation of these new drill holes outlines the high-grade footprint (see attached Figures). This vein is parallel to the Babicanora and Babicanora Norte veins and is approximately 400 metres southeast of Area 51, which is the highest-grade mineralized area of the Babicanora Vein having average resource grades greater than 1,000 grams per tonne (“gpt”) silver equivalent (“AgEq”, defined below). There are 23 known epithermal veins on the Property, including 11 which have drill-intersected high-grade mineralization and consist of the Babicanora, Babicanora Footwall, Babicanora Norte, Las Chispas, Giovanni including La Blanquita, William Tell, Varela, Granaditas, Luigi and Amethyst veins. Five of the 23 veins have been included in the maiden resource (refer to “Technical Report and Mineral Resource Estimate for the Las Chispas Property, Sonora, Mexico”, effective February 12, 2018 and amended May 9, 2018).
