Silver Viper Terminates Option on Clemente Project

VANCOUVER, Aug. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Silver Viper Minerals Corp. (the "Company" or "Silver Viper") (TSXV: VIPR) announces that it has terminated the option agreement on the Clemente Precious - Base Metal Property in Sonora State, Mexico that it entered into on December 2, 2016 with Riverside Resources Inc.

Silver Viper Minerals Corp. (CNW Group/Silver Viper Minerals Corp.)

"We would like to thank Riverside for the opportunity to advance the Clemente project and we look forward to working with them again in the future. At this time, our focus has shifted towards the La Virginia project. It is far more advanced and has a history of some very successful drill results while still being underexplored throughout most of the project." said Steve Cope, CEO of Silver Viper.

The La Virginia Gold-Silver Project is 220 kilometres east-northeast of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Camp and drill pad construction is currently underway and Silver Viper expects to commence drilling on a 5,000 m initial exploration campaign shortly. The first phase of work will be conducted within the Rubi-Esperanza group of claims currently under option by Silver Viper (see news release of the Company dated June 25, 2018).

Silver Viper has received all permits and completed land-owner agreements necessary to commence work. Due to the location of the drilling area, drilling as well as core logging and sampling, will be conducted from the field camp currently under construction. Silver Viper's regional exploration effort continues to prospect and refine additional targets slated for drill testing in the coming months.
