Mr. Ralph Rushton reports


Aftermath Silver Ltd. has reached an agreement to immediately retire the $1,075,000 balance of the $1,575,000 convertible debenture that was issued to Halo Labs Inc. in October, 2019, in consideration of the acquisition of the 80-per-cent interest in the Cachinal silver-gold project (see Aftermath Silver’s news release dated Oct. 31, 2019). To retire the obligations under the debenture, Aftermath Silver will issue four million common shares to Halo at the conversion price of 20 cents.

Aftermath Silver is buying Halo’s shares in the Chilean holding company, Minera Cachinal SA, representing 80-per-cent ownership of the project. SSR Mining Inc. holds the remaining 20-per-cent interest.

Ralph Rushton, president of Aftermath Silver, commented: “I’d like to thank Halo Labs for allowing us to trigger retirement of the debenture early. Given the current precious metals market, the removal of the upcoming cash payment obligations under the debenture will allow Aftermath Silver to direct more of its treasury into the technical programs in Chile, as and when COVID restrictions are lifted.”

Warrant exercise

The company also announces that it has received proceeds of $159,150 to date related to the recent exercise of 1,326,250 warrants, which were exercisable at 12 cents. An updated share structure is posted on Aftermath Silver’s website.

About the Cachinal silver-gold project

The Cachinal silver-gold project is located in Chile’s Antofagasta region (Region II). The project is located about 40 kilometres east of the Pan American Highway, in a nearly flat plain at an elevation of around 2,700 metres above sea level, 16 kilometres north of Austral Gold’s Guanaco gold-silver mine.

It is a low-sulphidation epithermal deposit. Shallow drilling has defined the current mineral resources principally to a depth of 150 metres below surface and provides sufficient evidence to interpret the presence of high-grade shoots within the vein system extending below the base of a potential open pit. Following these high-grade shoots to depth with drilling will be the initial focus of the company’s efforts to expand the silver-gold mineralization. The oxidation level bottoms at about 120 metres to 150 metres below surface; however, the downdip extent of the mineralized structures remains unknown.

Completion of the updated National Instrument 43-101 technical report on Cachinal continues to be delayed due to COVID-19 travel restrictions in Chile.
