Canada : Silver Bull Intersects 6 Meters of Sulphide Mineralization Grading 802g/t Silver, 5.87% Zinc, & 3.3% Copper, on the Sierra Mojada Project, Coahuila, Mexico.

Silver Bull Resources, Inc. is pleased to provide results of 7 drill holes from its continued underground drill program targeting the newly discovered Sulphide Zone, which sits under the previously defined oxide zone on the Sierra Mojada Project in Coahuila, Northern Mexico.

Highlights from the seven holes announced in this news release include:

Hole T17022 -- 6 meters @ 802g/t silver, 5.87% zinc, 3.3% copper, and 0.54% lead.

Hole T17019 -- 2 meters @ 1,300g/t silver, 13.52% zinc, 3.87% copper, and 2.95% lead.

Hole T17021 -- 6 meters @ 5.8% zinc, and 0.47% copper.

The Sulphide Zone: A continuous underground channel sampling program conducted by Silver Bull during the month of August 2017 identified a series of east-west trending high angle structure hosting sulphide mineralization. Results from the continuous channel sampling program yielded 31.5 meters grading at 22.36% zinc, 134.5g/t silver, 2.05% lead, 0.21% copper and 10.5 meters @ 432g/t silver, 1.15% zinc, 0.05% lead, and 1.22% copper and is the target of the current drill program.

The Drill Program: For the drill program Silver Bull is utilizing a company owned Termite drill rig which aims to test the grade, thickness, and continuity of the sulphide mineralization identified by the channel sampling program. The Termite is capable of drilling up to 100 meters of NQ diamond core and five drill stations are presently planned with more expected to be added as the drill program progresses.

Tim Barry, President, CEO and director of Silver Bull states, "We are extremely pleased with the results from this batch of drilling. The new sulphide zone is proving to be very productive for high grade sulphide mineralization. The drilling summarized in this news release targeted the second of three steeply dipping, discreet structures we have identified in the sulphide zone. Drilling from the first structure announced in the previous news releases of holes T17001 to T17014 were dominated by high grade silver-copper sulphide mineralization grading up 1,300g/t silver and 6% copper. A second structure defined by holes T17010 and T17018 to T17022 is dominated by extremely high zinc sulphide mineralization, grading up to 48% zinc and suggests a metal zonation in the mineralization. In addition to the area currently being drilled we have opened up an additional 350 meters of historical workings along the east-west trend of the sulphide mineralization which was announced in January 2018. This channel sampling program clearly shows the continuation of high grade mineralization towards the west. Our underground geological mapping of this area shows a number of high angle structures up to 2 meters wide containing sulphide mineralization grading up to 1,300 grams per ton silver, 42% zinc, 18% lead, and 13% copper that appear to feed into the overlying oxide zone. This will be the next target of our drill program in this area".
