10.07.2024  |  Newsfile

Vancouver, July 10, 2024 - Silver Elephant Mining Corp. (TSX: ELEF) (OTC Pink: SILEF) (FSE: 1P2) ("Silver Elephant" or the "Company") announces in June, the Company mined a total of 29,270 tonnes of Paca oxide materials with an average grade of 177.5 g/t silver ("Products") and trucked the Products to Andean Precious Metals Corp. ("Andean") in Potosi department in Bolivia. The Company has mined and shipped over 127,734 tonnes of silver-bearing oxide materials grading 177.7 g/t silver with zero safety incident since Paca operational start in October 2023. These production numbers have exceeded the Company's expectations.

John Lee, CEO of Silver Elephant commented: "Silver Elephant yet again set a new monthly silver mining production record of 976 tonnes-per-day on average including a daily-high of 1,665 tonnes on June 26 from the Company's Paca project in Bolivia.

"Silver Elephant has contributed meaningful taxes and royalty revenues to the Bolivian government based on 683,237 oz gross silver production record in the past 8 months to the end of June 2024, and became an integral part of the Pulacayo township with positive community relations.

"Further, Silver Elephant continues to raise its profile as a growing silver producer with the proposed Paca phase one sulphide operation (refer to the Company's news release dated July 8, 2024) which will generate further revenue stream."

Month Tonnes Grade g/t
Oct-23 4,502 244.9
Nov-23 7,269 156.5
Dec-23 19,704 144.9
Jan-24 4,283 146
Mar-24 15,809 176.6
Apr-24 20,894 194.2
May-24 26,003 180.6
Jun-24 29,270 177.5
Total 127,734 177.7

Pursuant to the sales and purchase agreement and master services agreement detailed in the news release dated September 12, 2023, Silver Elephant plans to sell and deliver up to 800,000 tonnes of Paca oxide materials to Andean for a total of between US$5 million and US$7 million depending on the silver price. At the current silver price and production run rate, the Company expects to receive US$2 million before January 31, 2025. In addition, Andean has also agreed to reimburse Silver Elephant for operating expenses under the sales and purchase agreement.

The Paca project hosts a high grade silver resource according to a technical report by Mercator Geological Services, dated effective October 13, 2020 titled "Mineral Resource Estimate Technical Report for the Pulacayo Project, Potosi Department Antonnio Quijarro Province Bolivia" (the "Technical Report"). The mineral resource estimate from the Technical Report is as follows:

Paca Zone Category Tonnes Ag g/t Ag Moz Zn% Pb %
Phase 1 Oxide In Pit Indicated 800,000 231 5.9 - -
Inferred 235,000 159 1.2 - -
Phase 2 Sulfide In Pit Indicated 1,810,000 256 14.9 1.22 1.22
Inferred 190,000 338 2.1 0.61 0.98

Oxide resources are based on a Pit-constrained estimate using a 90 g/t Ag cutoff. Sulfide resources are based on a pit-constrained estimate using a 200 g/t Ag Eq cutoff. Ag Eq = Silver Equivalent (Recovered) = (Ag g/t*89.2%)+((Pb%*(US$0.95/lb. Pb/14.583 Troy oz./lb./US$17 per Troy oz. Ag)*(10,000*91.9%))+((Zn%*(US$1.16/lb. Zn/14.583 Troy oz./lb./US$17 per Troy oz. Ag)*(10,000*82.9%)). Sulphide zone metal recoveries of 89.2% for Ag, 91.9% for Pb, and 82.9% for Zn were used in the Silver Equivalent (Recovered) equation and reflect metallurgical testing results disclosed previously for the Pulacayo Deposit. Matthew Harrington P. Geo. is the independent Qualified Person for the resource estimate.

The Technical Report was filed on October 26, 2020 and is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca. This news release includes an estimate of mineral resources as disclosed in the Technical Report. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

About Pulacayo-Paca

The Paca project is part of the Company's Pulacayo project with a total indicated resource of 106.7 million oz silver, 1.4 billion pounds of zinc and 690 million pounds of lead published in the Technical Report and tabulated below. Silver Elephant and its subsidiaries have spent over $35 million on Pulacayo and Paca, which is considered to be an advanced project with over 96,000 meters of drilling, and a historic feasibility study.

Combined Pulacayo and Paca Indicated Mineral Resources
Tonnes Ag g/t Pb % Zn %
Oxide 2,185,000 155 - -
Sulfide 45,855,000 65 0.69 1.37

Combined Indicated Mineral Resources includes Pulacayo pit-constrained and out-of-pit plus only Paca pit-constrained resources. Oxide resources use a 50 g/t Ag cutoff. Sulfide resources use a 100 g/t Ag Eq cutoff. Ag Eq = Silver Equivalent (Recovered) = (Ag g/t*89.2%)+((Pb%*(US$0.95/lb. Pb/14.583 Troy
oz./lb./US$17 per Troy oz. Ag)*(10,000*91.9%))+((Zn%*(US$1.16/lb. Zn/14.583 Troy oz./lb./US$17 per
Troy oz. Ag)*(10,000*82.9%)). Sulphide zone metal recoveries of 89.2% for Ag, 91.9% for Pb, and 82.9%
for Zn were used in the Silver Equivalent (Recovered) equation and reflect metallurgical testing results
disclosed previously for the Pulacayo Deposit. Matthew Harrington P. Geo. is the independent Qualified Person for the resource estimate.

A subsidiary of Silver Elephant entered into a Mining Production Contract ("MPC") with Corporación Minera de Bolivia ("COMIBOL"), a branch of the Bolivian Ministry of Mining and Metallurgy on October 3, 2019. The MPC grants the Company's subsidiary an exclusive right to develop and mine at the Pulacayo and Paca concessions for up to 30 years.

The Pulacayo Project is at the center of a major silver mining district in Bolivia and is within 250 km driving distance to the San Cristobal mine, the Cerro Rico mine, Pan American's San Vicente mine, Eloro's Iska Iska project, and New Pacific's Silver Sands project.
