VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 25, 2022 / Silver Elephant Mining Corp. ('Silver Elephant' or the 'Company') (TSX:ELEF)(OTCQX:SILED)(Frankfurt:1P2N) announces that it has commenced a 1,500 meter drilling program on its El Triunfo Gold-Silver Project, located approximately 75 kilometers east of La Paz, Bolivia. The program will probe several prospective induced polarisation ('IP') geophysical anomalies detected in late 2021 ('Triunfo East'). The IP anomalies are coincident with surface Au-Ag mineralization that was observed during a geological mapping field program in early 2021.

The drilling program is a follow-up to the Company's maiden drill program in 2020 where three of the four wide-spaced diamond drill holes intercepted mineralization, starting from surface across a 750 meter mineralized trend ('Triunfo West'). Triunfo West is where artisanal mining and all prior drilling had occurred, including TR007, which encountered 98.9 meters of 1 g/t AuEq* (0.4g/t Au, 23 g/t Ag, 0.74% Zn, 0.58% Pb (see Company's press release dated November 25, 2020)).

Triunfo East, the primary focus of the Company's current drill campaign, is a 2.2 kilometer extension to Triunfo West, and is separated by a fault that resulted in this area being overlooked and unexplored until now. Triunfo East has never been mined or drilled and has returned high-grade gold surface samples, which bears similar geological traits as Triunfo West.

Highlights from Triunfo East sampling from the 2021 mapping program are shown below:

*AuEq: Gold equivalent calculation uses a gold price of $1,795, a zinc price of $0.93, a lead price of $0.80, and a silver price of $18.30 (all USD) and assumes a 100% metallurgical recovery. Gold equivalent values can be calculated using the following formula: AuEq = Au g/t + (Ag g/t x 0.0102) + (Zn % x 0.3551) + (Pb % x 0.3055).

Triunfo East and Triunfo West will have a combined strike length of over 3 kilometers, having a good prospect of a potentially large, bulk-mining project.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Silver Elephant adopts industry-recognized best practices in its implementation of QA/QC methods. Rock chip samples average between 5-7 kilograms. Samples are shipped to ALS Global Laboratories in Ururo, Bolivia for preparation and then shipped to ALS Global laboratories in Lima, Peru for analysis. Samples are analyzed using Intermediate Level Four Acid Digestion. Silver overlimits ('ore grade') are analyzed using fire assay with a gravimetric finish. The ALS Laboratories sample management system meets all the requirements of International Standards ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015. All ALS geochemical hub laboratories are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for specific analytical procedures. A geochemical standard control samples are inserted into the sample stream. The laboratory also includes duplicates of samples, standards and blanks for additional QA/QC. Check assays are reviewed prior to the release of data. Assays are also reviewed for their geological context and checked against field descriptions.
