Drill holes BA17-44 and 45 intercepted anomalous mineralization, but are below the company's 150 grams per tonne silver equivalent cutoff. Holes BA17-46, 48 and 49 intercepted bonanza grades in the Babicanora Footwall Vein. Hole BA17-51 intercepted bonanza grades consisting of coarse argentite, electrum, native silver and gold.

The company plans to continue with step-out and infill drilling consisting of an additional 10 to 15 surface holes on the Babicanora Vein and ongoing underground drilling on the Las Chispas and Giovanni veins. Furthermore, the Company continues to collect trench samples from the surface dumps.

N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President and CEO, stated: "Our continued drilling of the Babicanora Vein has shown consistent high-grades along the drill-tested strike length of over one kilometer, and this vein is open to the southeast and northwest. Currently, we are drilling an additional 10 to 15 surface holes at the Babicanora Vein to test for further extensions by mid-January 2018 in anticipation of releasing a maiden resource estimate for the Las Chispas Property in February 2018."

The shares are trading at $1.87 and with 54 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $101 million.
