Silver North Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SNAG, OTCQB: TARSF) (“Silver North” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has amended its agreement with Coeur Explorations Canada, Ltd. (a subsidiary of Coeur Mining, Inc. (NYSE: CDE)) that grants Coeur an option on the Tim Property in southern Yukon Territory, Canada. The amendment paves the way forward for Coeur to undertake drilling at Tim in 2024, which will target identifying silver-zinc-lead mineralization that management believes may be similar to that found at Coeur’s Silvertip project, 19 km to the south of the Tim Property.

The amendment to the agreement adjusts the work commitments required by Coeur to earn a 51% interest in the Tim Property to account for delays in receiving a Class 3 Land Use Permit. As such, the total commitments remain the same, but the expenditure schedule is adjusted to the following timeline:

 

DateExpenditures by YearOption Cash Payments
On the Effective Date$10,000 (paid)
On or before Dec. 16, 2021$50,000 (completed)$15,000 (paid)
On or before Dec 16, 2022$25,000 (paid)
By December 31, 2023$50,000 (paid)
By December 31, 2024$700,000$75,000
By December 31, 2025$1,100,000$100,000
By December 31, 2026$1,353,073$100,000
By December 31, 2027$100,000
On or before Dec 16, 2028$100,000

 

Furthermore, Coeur has agreed to make a separate $50,000 cash payment to Silver North by December 31, 2023. Coeur can earn a 51% interest in the Tim Property by completing all exploration expenditures and cash payments due by December 31, 2026, which will total at least $3.55 million and $425,000 in cash payments. Coeur can bring its interest up to 80% by making additional cash payments of $100,000 per year, completing a positive feasibility study and informing Silver North by December 16, 2028, of Coeur’s intention to develop a mine on the property.

Exploration at Tim is targeting high-grade silver-lead-zinc Carbonate Replacement Mineralization (“CRM”), which management believes may be similar to that found at Coeur’s Silvertip project, 19 km to the south in northern British Columbia. Exploration to date has identified CRM-style mineralization over 1,700 metres of strike, exposed in trenches in a similar geological setting to Silvertip. Recent work by Coeur includes a SkyTEM geophysical survey, comprehensive soil geochemical sample coverage, mapping, prospecting and resampling of 1980’s era trenches. Results from two trenches located 150 metres apart yielded chip sample results of 4.0 m averaging 468.1 g/t Ag, 21.1% Pb, 0.3% Zn and an 8.8 m averaging 265.0 g/t Ag, 6.7% Pb, 0.9% Zn.

Coeur is the project operator and is currently compiling the data from previous programs and refining targets for the 2024 diamond drilling program at Tim. Once this program has been defined, it will be communicated to investors and shareholders. A five-year Class 3 Land Use Permit is in place for the Tim Property, expiring in June of 2028.
