In July 2022, the Company announced the results of eight drill holes at the San Miguel East deposit, which were drilled down dip from the known structure at depth. All eight encountered mineralization, with seven of the eight extending beyond the current historic resource. The southernmost hole, 22SME‐11, with an 18 meter intersection returning 2.72 gpt Au and 129.8 gpt Ag (16.9 m etw), was intersected outside the pit constrained resource previously reported.

Exploration highlights during the quarter

April 12e, the Company announced positive drill results from 26 drill holes at its Guadalupe East deposit. These holes intersected the high-grade epithermal Estaca, San Nicolas and San Manuel veins as well as other subparallel veins in the system.

May 2ndn/a, the Company announced new drilling results expanding the Zapote North deposit. These results included 17 new holes targeting the northern extension of the ZT structure, including 2 holes from the Mariposa deposit. This drilling confirmed that gold-silver mineralization extends from Zapote North to Mariposa.

June 1st, the Company announced 12 new step-out drill holes at the Guadalupe East deposit. Six of these holes intersected high-grade gold and silver mineralization below the current pit-confined resources, demonstrating the strong potential for resource expansion near the pit.

June 29e, the Company announced 20 additional assays as part of its expanded phase 2 step-out and infill drilling program at the Tahonitas deposit on the west side of the project. These results successfully identified shallow mineralization near surface as well as deeper mineralization up to 450 meters above sea level.

Los Reyes Gold and Silver Project

Los Reyes is a rapidly evolving, high-grade, low-sulphidation epithermal gold-silver project located in Sinaloa, Mexico, in the prolific mining region of the Sierra Madre. Historical operating results indicate that approximately 1 million ounces of gold and 60 million ounces of silver were recovered from five separate operations at Los Reyes between 1770 and 1990. Prior to the acquisition of Prime , recent Los Reyes operators had spent approximately US$20 million on exploration. , engineering and pre-feasibility studies. The project remains under-explored as only 40% of known structures have been systematically drilled, leaving 10 kilometers of length untested. Los Reyes holds potential for further discovery and resource expansion.

Since acquiring Los Reyes in 2019, Prime has spent approximately US$30 million on direct exploration activities and is nearing completion of two full drilling phases totaling over 87,000 meters and growing. Results to date suggest that the eight known deposits are significantly larger than those previously reported and that there is potential for further discoveries outside of the current defined resource areas.
