Silver Viper Mobilizes Diamond Drill to Clemente Project

VANCOUVER, Oct. 2, 2017 /CNW/ - Silver Viper Minerals Corp. (the "Company" or "Silver Viper") (TSX-V: VIPR) is pleased to announce that it is mobilizing a diamond drill to the Clemente Precious - Base Metal Property in Sonora State, Mexico. Drill testing of priority silver-gold targets is expected to commence this week.  

The Company plans to complete an initial 2,000 m HQ core drilling test, marking first ever drilling on the property.  The initial test will focus on the El Mundo and Nuevo Mundo prospect areas in a location scattered with small historical workings known locally as "Mina Grande".  Situated approximately 42 km south of the regional mining and agricultural centre of Caborca, silver, gold and base metal mineralization at Clemente is hosted by quartz shear veins, quartz stockworks and hematitc vein breccias.  Preliminary confirmation chip sampling by the Company returned a best result grading 1,895g/t silver, 4.46g/t gold 1.95% lead and 1.62% zinc from a 0.5 m chip sample within El Mundo workings. 

"We are extremely excited to begin exploration on a target-rich project that has never been drilled before.  We have a great technical team in place and look forward to developing our understanding of the Clemente project through our maiden exploration program," said Steve Cope, CEO of Silver Viper.

Known mineral deposits in the region demonstrate strong structural control. Previous work on Clemente recognizes a complex post-depositional history including two phases of thrust faulting, subsequent folding and later extensional faulting.  Silver Viper considers the property to be highly prospective and is preparing an aggressive field campaign to coincide with the initial drill test.

The Company currently has permits and land use access agreements to conduct the work and has a field crew completing preparatory activities including drill pad building and camp setup in anticipation of the drill's arrival.
