New Pacific Metals : Commences Drilling at the Silverstrike Project, Bolivia - Form 6-K

New Pacific Commences Drilling at the Silverstrike Project, Bolivia

VANCOUVER, BC, June 14, 2022 /CNW/ - New Pacific Metals Corp. ("New Pacific" or the "Company") (TSX: NUAG) (NYSE American: NEWP) is pleased to announce that a 6,000-metre ("m"), one rig drilling program has commenced at the Silverstrike Project. The program will initially focus on testing a broad gold zone identified by the Company and by historical drilling.

The Silverstrike Project with an area of approximately 13km² is located approximately 140 kilometres ("km") southwest of La Paz, Bolivia, or approximately 450 km northwest of New Pacific's Silver Sand Project. The Company has 98% interest in the Silverstrike Project with its Bolivian partner and will cover 100% of the future expenditures of exploration, mining, development and production activities.

In the previous news releases (September 29, and November 19, 2020), the Company identified near-surface broad-zones of silver mineralization in altered sandstones to the North, with similarities to that at Silver Sand; and in the Silverstrike Central area, a near surface broad Silver zone that occurs near the top of a 900 m diameter volcanic dome of ignimbrite (volcaniclastic sediments) units with intrusion of rhyolite dyke swarm and andesite flows; and a broad gold zone occurs half way from the top of the dome.

The Gold Zone at the Silverstrike Central

Gold-rich mineralization at Cerro Tatitu Kkollu occurs adjacent to the contact zones between the ignimbrites and the rhyolite dyke swarm.

A total of 277 channel chip samples were collected over three key outcropping areas, the best results were 4.7 m grading 14.76 g/t Au and 27 g/t Ag from a historical mining adit; 42m @ 1.02g/t Au and18g/t Ag, and 10m @ 1.45g/t and14g/t Ag.

A single dump grab sample collected from a historic exploration adit returned 1.66g/t Au, 154g/t Ag, and 7.97% Cu.

Three holes Drilled by Rio Tinto in 1995 on the gold zone returning broad intervals of Au mineralization from surface:

Hole BER-02 - 302m grading 0.27 g/t Au, including 42m grading 0.52g/t Au.

Hole BRC-04 - 110m grading 0.46 g/t Au, including 22m grading 1.42 g/t Au.

Hole BRC-12 - 258m grading 0.19 g/t Au.

Based on the Company's field mapping, chipping sample and limited historical drilling results, the Company interprets the gold zone as very similar to the gold discovery in the Carangas Project that the silver rich zone sits at the top of the system stacking on top of the gold mineralization in volcaniclastic sediments that intruded by rhyolitic porphyry dyke swarms.


The scientific and technical information contained in this news release have been reviewed and approved by Alex Zhang, P. Geo., Vice President of Exploration, who is a Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). The Qualified Person has verified the information disclosed herein, including the sampling, preparation, security and analytical procedures underlying such information, and is not aware of any significant risks and uncertainties that could be expected to affect the reliability or confidence in the information discussed herein.


New Pacific is a Canadian mining company exploring and developing the silver and gold deposits in Bolivia. Its flagship Silver Sand Project is a large pure silver deposit amenable to open pit & heap leach operation. The newly discovered Carangas gold-silver Project is an extensive historical silver digging site with a thick gold zone discovered underneath. The Silverstrike Project is another extensive historical silver digging site at surface to be drilled.

Other than specifically required by applicable laws, the Company is under no obligation and expressly disclaims any such obligation to update or alter the forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise except as may be required by law.

The disclosure in this news release and referred to herein was prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 which differs significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The terms "proven mineral reserve", "probable mineral reserve" and "mineral reserves" used in this news release are in reference to the mining terms defined in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Standards (the "CIM Definition Standards"), which definitions have been adopted by NI 43-101. Accordingly, information contained in this news release providing descriptions of our mineral deposits in accordance with NI 43-101 may not be comparable to similar information made public by other U.S. companies subject to the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.

Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral resources will ever be converted into reserves. Pursuant to CIM Definition Standards, "Inferred mineral resources" are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Such geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. An inferred mineral resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an indicated mineral resource and must not be converted to a mineral reserve. However, it is reasonably expected that the majority of inferred mineral resources could be upgraded to indicated mineral resources with continued exploration. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource is economically or legally mineable. Disclosure of "contained ounces" in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute "reserves" by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures.

Canadian standards, including the CIM Definition Standards and NI 43-101, differ significantly from standards in the SEC Industry Guide 7. Effective February 25, 2019, the SEC adopted new mining disclosure rules under subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "SEC Modernization Rules"), with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. The SEC Modernization Rules replace the historical property disclosure requirements included in SEC Industry Guide 7. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of "Measured Mineral Resources", "Indicated Mineral Resources" and "Inferred Mineral Resources". In addition, the SEC has amended its definitions of "Proven Mineral Reserves" and "Probable Mineral Reserves" to be substantially similar to corresponding definitions under the CIM Definition Standards. During the period leading up to the compliance date of the SEC Modernization Rules, information regarding mineral resources or reserves contained or referenced in this news release may not be comparable to similar information made public by companies that report according to U.S. standards. While the SEC Modernization Rules are purported to be "substantially similar" to the CIM Definition Standards, readers are cautioned that there are differences between the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definitions Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral reserves or mineral resources that the Company may report as "proven mineral reserves", "probable mineral reserves", "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources" under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the reserve or resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules.
