Silver Elephant Completes 940m Drilling Program at the Pero Target within Pulacayo Project, Assays Pending

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 21, 2021 / Silver Elephant Mining Corp. ("Silver Elephant" or "the Company") (TSX:ELEF)(OTCQX:SILEF)(Frankfurt:1P2N) has completed a 940 meter diamond drilling program at the Pero target within its Pulacayo Project in Bolivia.

Pero is located at the southeastern extension of the Pulacayo deposit which hosts an estimated NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate showing an Indicated resource of 70Moz Ag, 904Mlbs Zn, 386Mlbs Pb (see Company's press release dated October 13th, 2020).

Previous diamond drilling at the east extension of the Pulacayo deposit was directly along the main east-west trend of the main Tajo Vein system. The drill results showed increasingly erratic and narrowing mineralization along the eastward trend. However, geological mapping and surface sampling completed in late-2020 identified an area of silver bearing surface mineralization of up to 200 g/t silver several hundreds of meters south of the projected east-west Tajo Vein system trend, suggesting that the Tajo Vein system was offset southward in this portion of the system where strong alteration can be observed at surface covering 250 meters by 100 meters wide. This reinterpreted surface projection of the Tajo Vein system coincides with some historic Spanish workings in that area of property that date back to the 16th Century. Highlights of assay results from recent surface samples at Pero are tabulated below:

The program of 4 holes totaling 940m at Pero commenced prior to the Christmas holidays, has just been completed. Drill assay results are expected shortly.
