The current activities are concentrated in the San Juan and La Colorada sites due to the proximity of the target areas to the surface and third-party owned processing plants. Bulk Sampling Test Mining at the historical mines is expected to continue through 2024. The Program has the potential to unveil valuable geological information to better define high-grade Ag mineralized zones in these locations. This will allow low-cost preparation of sites for future drilling, aiming to continue resource growth in the Plomosas Project.

GR Silver Mining's Plomosas Project (Figure 1) exploration programs in 2023 and earlier, included detailed underground mapping, which defined geological structures without surface expression but with evidence of high-grade Ag mineralization. Current BSTM Program activities in the Project's historical mines could provide the Company with a low-cost platform for the definition of new targets for drilling, discovery and, potentially, resource expansion.

QA/QC Procedures

The Company has implemented QA/QC procedures, including inserting blank, duplicate, and standard samples in all sample lots sent to Act Labs de México, S.A. de C.V. laboratory facilities in Sonora, Mexico, for sample preparation and assaying. The analytical methods are four acid Digest and Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry with Lead Fusion Fire Assay with gravimetric finish for silver above over limits. For gold assays the analytical methods are Lead Fusion and Atomic Absorption Spectrometry Lead Fusion Fire Assay and gravimetric finish for gold above over limits (>10 ppm).
