VANCOUVER, BC – September 13, 2018 – SilverCrest Metals Inc. (“SilverCrest” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce further Phase III drill results for the Las Chispas Property (the “Property”) located in Sonora, Mexico. Continued step out drilling of the Babicanora Norte Vein, since the Company’s news release on May 29, 2018, announcing the discovery of this vein, and initial step-out drilling results reported July 24, 2018, has intersected additional high-grade silver-gold mineralization (see attached Figures). The Babicanora Norte Vein is parallel to the Babicanora Vein and is located approximately 300 metres northeast. The vein appears to connect with the Granaditas area which has multiple drill-tested veins to the southeast. The Babicanora Norte Vein will be part of the upcoming updated resource which will include 8 of the 30 identified veins in the district. Five (5) veins were included in the February 2018 maiden resource.
