Regency Silver Options Two Past Producing High-Grade Silver Projects Near San Dimas in Durango, Mexico

January 3, 2024

Silver Grades as high as 7,753 g/t from sampling

Vancouver, BC – January 3, 2024 – Regency Silver Corp. (“Regency Silver” or the “Company”, TSXV-RSMX and OTCQB-RSMXF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire two contiguous claim groups (the “San Dimas Claims”) near the San Dimas mine in the San Dimas district of Durango, Mexico. (See Figure 1 below for location)

The San Dimas Claims cover a total of 3,498 hectares and contain numerous artisanal workings and tunnels. Historical grab sampling returned assay values as high as 17 g/t gold and 7,753 g/t silver and 37 g/t gold and 2,325 g/t silver. Verification grab sampling by Regency Silver has returned assay values of 8.95 g/t gold and 304 g/t silver, and 0.49 g/t gold and 1,084 g/t silver.

The San Dimas Claims are located only 13 km to the east of the San Dimas mine in Durango, Mexico. Historical production to 2018 from the San Dimas district is estimated at more than 748 Moz of silver and more than 11 Moz of gold (Enriquez et al., 2018), placing the district third in Mexico for precious metal production after Pachuca and Guanajuato.

Regency Chairman Bruce Bragagnolo stated, “We are excited to acquire an option on the San Dimas Claims. The acquisition fits with our ongoing strategy of acquiring high grade properties in established mining camps and developing them to create substantial shareholder value. We firmly believe that, after Dios Padre, the San Dimas district is the next large scale mining district in Mexico and Regency plans to be firmly established in the area. In addition to our ongoing programs at Dios Padre we plan to commence a mapping and sampling program on the San Dimas Claims in the near future.”

In order to exercise the option, Regency Silver must pay US$50,000 on receipt of Exchange acceptance, US$50,000 in 6 months, issue a total of 1,000,000 common shares and pay back taxes and mining filings on or before March 31, 2025. In lieu of a royalty, Regency Silver must also pay a US$1M bonus upon a NI 43-101 resource being published, which estimates the San Dimas Claims contain a minimum of 70 million silver equivalent ounces or 1 million gold ounces in the measured or indicated categories.  The shares are subject to a four month hold period and the agreement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
