Vancouver, BC. Silver Viper Minerals Corp. (the “Company” or “Silver Viper”) (TSX-V: VIPR) is extremely pleased to report the current batch of drilling results from ongoing exploration at the La Virginia Silver-Gold Project. The six drill holes reported herein were drilled within the El Rubi prospect. The standout hole of this release, and first of the 2021 program, intercepted three main zones of mineralization, culminating in the highest grade and deepest hit yet encountered at El Rubi. Hole LV21-289 returned a 19.30 metres1 core length (11.89 metres estimated true width) zone averaging 363 g/t silver and 21.2 g/t gold in the deepest hit on the El Rubi structure to date containing a best individual sample of 0.5 metres1 core length (0.31 metres estimated true width) grading 10,681 g/t silver and 738 g/t gold from 429.2 metres. In addition, this same interval returned an unprecedented 6.74% Pb and 7.11% Zn, marking the first time high-grade base metals have been reported from El Rubi. The current results are being incorporated into the wireframe modelling of the mineralization.
