Bayhorse Silver Inc – Significant Silver Assays Received From Sunshine and Big Dog Zones

Bayhorse Silver Inc., TSX-V: BHS (“Bayhorse” or the “Company”) is pleased to report assay results have been received from sampling the silver mineralized Sunshine and Big Dog Zones at the Bayhorse Silver Mine, Oregon, USA.

Samples were taken from each mined round of a 30-m (110 ft) drift advanced alongside the Sunshine Zone workings. Each drilled and blasted round was approximately 3.3 m (10 ft) high, 2.6 m (8 ft) wide, and 2 m (6.6 ft) deep. One sample was taken from the Big Dog Zone, where the majority of the mining was conducted under the 1984 mining program.

The highest grade sampled was 111.85 oz/t (3,478.92 g/t) Ag from the Big Dog Zone, while the highest grade sampled from the Sunshine Zone was 83.5 oz/t (2,597.13 g/t) Ag. Minor gold values were identified in the majority of the samples. The full results are tabulated below.

Assaying was undertaken by Umpire Assayer for Metal Solutions LLC and Liberty Refiners LLC, Chris Christphosen, Metal Chemist and Assay Lab, Kellogg, Idaho. The analytical method used for the silver & gold analysis consisted of a 50 gram sample subjected to fire assay with gravimetric finish. Pulps of these samples have been submitted to Dr. Jerry Demenna, Chem Check Laboratory, Bronx, NY for ICP-AES (Induction Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectral) multi-element analysis, which is pending. As reported in the Company's news release BHS2017-14, testing of Bayhorse mineralization conducted on the Steinert XRT/Laser Ore-Sorter that the Company has purchased, shows it will effectively select crushed mineralized (5-400 mm) material containing more than 2.5 oz/t Ag (85.5 g/t). It will reject up to 86% of the non-mineralized gangue, and minimally mineralized material under 2.5 oz/t Ag. Bayhorse CEO, Graeme O'Neill comments "we are excited that the assay results received to date are continuing to confirm the historic recorded mined grades ." The Company advises it is not basing any decision to produce on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability and also advises there is increased uncertainty and specific economic and technical risks of failure associated with any production decision.
