Vancouver, B.C., May 17, 2022 – Silver Range Resources Ltd. [TSX-V:SNG] (“Silver Range” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on recent work at the Cambridge Project in the Walker Lane, western Nevada. The Cambridge Project is a joint-venture between Silver Range and Auburn Gold Mining LLC (“Auburn”).
A total of 10 hand trenches were excavated and sampled in March 2022 on the Price Lode Trend (TR22-01 to TR22-05) and at the Cambridge Mine (TR22-06 to TR22-10). Best assay results included 3.2 m @ 14.65 g/t Au in TR22-10 and 1.5 m @ 14.73 g/t Au in TR22-05. A grab sample collected just above basal regolith in TR22-02 assayed 63.1 g/t Au and 117 g/t Ag. Significant results are tabulated below.
|TR22-02||324190||4284303||90||24.30||4.00||0.33||0.40||Grab collected at 1.1 m depth assayed 63.1 g/t Au & 117 g/t Ag|
|TR22-09||325250||4284074||96||3.40||3.40||0.13||2.90||Along strike sample|
|TR22-10||325247||4284088||89||3.20||3.20||14.65||1.93||Central 1.3 m filled with mine waste|
|Including||0.90||36.80||1.90||West shoulder sample|

Silver Range intends to continue hand-trenching in stages to locate the tops of mineralized gold-bearing shoots along the three major structures well-defined by soil chemical and geophysical surveys. On this project, detailed soil sampling in areas of thin cover has proven particularly successful in defining the mineralized bedrock structures. There is a large unexplored area between the western Price Lode and eastern Cambridge Mine and North Zone trends. Silver Range plans to conduct closely-spaced soil geochemical sampling along widely spaced reconnaissance lines between the two trends to determine if additional, hitherto undetected structures lie between them.
The Cambridge Project is located 33 km south of Yerington in Lyon County, NV. Gold was first discovered in the area in the 1860’s and intermittent mining at the Cambridge Mine is reported between 1878 and 1942. The property is underlain by Cretaceous quartz monzonite with local thin Tertiary volcanic cover rocks. The quartz monzonite is cut by north-trending, steeply-dipping faults or shears hosting mesothermal gold mineralization in quartz veins. The veins contain coarse grained, ribbon-banded white quartz together with pyrite, galena, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, lesser tetrahedrite and amorphous black sulphides in disseminations and clots. Quartz vein material in dumps at the Cambridge Mine locally contains visible gold. Silver from trace to 274 g/t Ag is associated with the gold mineralization. There are three known gold zones on the property – the Cambridge Mine, Price Lode and North Trends – which have an aggregate strike length of approximately 2,700 metres. Mineralization has been traced to a depth of 137 metres (450 feet) in workings at the Cambridge Mine.
A total of 76 trench chip samples and 1 grab sample were collected during the program, 4 of which returned analyses greater than 5 g/t Au. Blanks and duplicates were inserted in every batch of 20 samples. Samples were secured and transported under chain of custody to ALS Minerals facilities in Reno, Nevada for sample preparation and analysis. At the laboratory, samples were crushed to progressively to < 2 mm (ALS Code CR-32) and a 1 kg aliquot was pulverized to 85% passing a 75 μm mesh (Code PUL-32). A 50 g subsample was then fire assayed with an atomic absorption finish (Code Au-AA26). In addition, induced coupled plasma analysis for 35 elements was performed on the samples (Code ME-ICP41). Overlimit silver analyses were re-analyzed using a gravimetric method (Code Ag-OG46).
