Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 13, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) (“SBMI” or “the Company”) is both pleased and proud to announce it has successfully produced silver and copper at its wholly owned 125 metric ton per day mill near Globe, Arizona.
“This production is the result of years of hard work, planning and dedication, and the incredible talents of the Arizona team,” said A. John Carter, SBMI’s CEO. “Over the past ten months, despite COVID-19 and global supply chain issues, we have spent less than three million dollars building this fully functional mill, a staggering feat. This is to my mind a one-of-a-kind experience.”
The mill produced its first silver concentrate from lower grade ore on July 12, 2022 and plans to soon pour its first dore bars. The Company intends to continue to use lower grade ore to optimize recovery efficiency and fine tune the various mill components. Higher grade ore will be introduced into the system once the mill is operating at higher rates of recovery. To date there have been no major setbacks and all components are operating within expected parameters.
Below is a photo of the first band of silver coming off the shaker table. The silver is visible on the left side of the photo. The secondary concentrate line is a silver/copper blend which will be bagged and sold. The initial concentrate and dore should be sold to various refineries, whose apparent demand should account for SBMI’s entire silver and copper production over the coming weeks.

The Buckeye Silver Mine is the source of the bulk sample ore for the mill. Both the mill and the Buckeye Mine are 100% controlled by SBMI. At the Buckeye, the field team is currently extracting ore from a vein at a location where it is approximately 12 feet wide. SBMI’s target is to have at least one month (5,000 tonnes) of raw ore available to the mill at all times, meaning management expects ore to be continually shipped from the Buckeye to the mill on a regular schedule.
Over the coming weeks management expects a steady stream of announcements as material milestones are met.
