Discovery Files 43-101 Technical Report for its Preliminary Feasibility Study for its Cordero Project
February 13, 2023, Toronto, Ontario - Discovery Silver Corp. (TSX-V: DSV, OTCQX: DSVSF) (“Discovery” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has filed on SEDAR its National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) technical report titled Cordero Silver Project – NI 43-101 Technical Report & Pre-Feasibility Study, dated January 20, 2023 (the “Technical Report”), in respect of Discovery’s Cordero deposit in Mexico. The report was authored by Ausenco Engineering Canada Inc. (“Ausenco”), with support from AGP Mining Consultants Inc. (“AGP”), Knight Piésold Ltd. (“Knight Piésold”) and Hard Rock Consulting, LLC (“Hard Rock”).
The filing of the Technical Report follows the Company’s news release issued January 24, 2023 (entitled Discovery Reports Preliminary Feasibility Study on Cordero with After-Tax NPV of US$1.2 Billion and 28% IRR), which outlined the key inputs, assumptions and results from the Preliminary Feasibility Study (“PFS”).
Discovery’s flagship project is its 100%-owned Cordero project, one of the world’s largest silver deposits. The PFS published in February 2023 demonstrates that Cordero has the potential to be developed into a highly capital-efficient mine that offers the combination of margin, size, and scalability. Cordero is located close to infrastructure in a prolific mining belt in Chihuahua State, Mexico. Continued exploration and project development at Cordero is supported by a strong balance sheet with cash of approximately C$45 million.
