Bayhorse Silver Inc. – Significant Scandium Values (Up to 26 G/T Sc) Accompany High Grade Silver, Bayhorse Mine, Oregon, USA

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – March 15, 2018) – Bayhorse Silver Inc. (TSXV: BHS) (“Bayhorse” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that Scandium values have been identified accompanying the high silver assays reported in its news release BHS2018-06, (March 6, 2018) from the Legend, Sunshine and Big Dog mineralized zones, Bayhorse Silver Mine, Oregon, USA.

The Scandium was identified during the assay resubmission that identified the gold values as reported in news release BHS2018-06. Preliminary metallurgical results indicate that Scandium can be recovered during the processing of the silver from the Bayhorse Silver Mine. Scandium (Sc) is a high value mineral used to produce high strength Aluminum alloys in the Aerospace Industry and is classed as a strategic mineral in the USA. The Company has submitted additional samples for metallurgical testing and recovery characteristics of the Scandium.

Scandium values are tabulated below:

Bayhorse CEO, Graeme O’Neill comments, ” While the Scandium values reported would not be considered enough to make a Scandium mine, in the event they are economically recoverable, the Scandium is certainly a value added mineral to any silver recovery.”

The Company has established a quality control assay program at the Bayhorse Silver Mine. Production samples are split with half  placed into a pulverizer, homogenized, dried, and submitted to XRF analysis with the other half retained for comparison. Check samples are sent for assay to a qualified lab. Mine samples reported are split, with one half retained for comparison. Assaying for the samples reported above was undertaken by Metsolve Labs of Langley, BC. The analytical method used for the silver analysis consisted of a 50 gram sample subjected to fire assay with gravimetric finish.

The Company advises it is not basing any decision to produce on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability and also advises there is increased uncertainty and specific economic and technical risks of failure associated with any production decision.
