April 5, 2023 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Highlander Silver Corp. (CSE:HSLV) (the “Company” or “Highlander Silver”) is pleased to announce that it has negotiated term extensions and suspension of monthly cash payments at both the Alta Victoria and Politunche projects in Central Peru.


  • Alta Victoria: Option term extended by up to 5 ½ years and monthly payments of USD$10,000 per month suspended for up to 18 months.
  • Politunche: Option term extended by 6 months, and monthly payments of USD$5,000 per month suspended for 6 months.

David Fincham, President & CEO commented “We are very pleased to have agreed with our partners at the Alta Victoria and Politunche projects to extend the terms of both option agreements and suspend monthly cash payments for 18 and 6 months respectively. I would like to thank the owners of both the Alta Victoria and Politunche concessions for granting the extensions and their continuing strong support for the projects.

The results from our 2022 drilling campaign at Alta Victoria (see news release of December 28, 2022) returned several significant intercepts of silver and base metals plus manganese sulphide that closely resemble the upper portions of the high grade Uchucchacua silver mine, located 90 kms along strike to the northwest of the project. Based on these encouraging results, our updated exploration model predicts that as at Uchucchacua a potential ore body could be hosted some 100 m to 300 m below the current depth of drilling. The next phase of drilling will therefore require deeper drill holes that will target the projection of mineralisation encountered to date within the prospective Santa Formation limestones, host rocks for the Santander and Iscaycruz mines, 20 kms and 80 kms northwest along strike respectively.

Given the highly prospective nature of the project and the deeper drilling required, we believe that it is in the best interests of our shareholders to find a partner to fund the next stage of exploration, whilst retaining exposure to the discovery potential at Alta Victoria. The option to extend the agreement term by 5 ½ years and suspension of monthly cash payments gives us the time to find a suitable partner for the project.

At our Politunche project 15 kms southwest of Alta Victoria the December 2022 mapping and rock sampling program defined a significant zone of dome intrusion and mineralisation which has yet to be drill tested – the Central Dome Target, and validated the potential for high grade vein hosted mineralisation at the North Vein target. 62 additional rock chip samples were collected with 53 samples returning anomalous to bonanza grades ranging from 29.9 g/t AgEq up to 1522.6 g/t AgEq, with 33 samples grading over 500 g/t AgEq*. The 6 month option term extension at Politunche gives us time to plan work at Politunche and at our recently acquired advanced exploration stage La Estrella silver – gold project (see news release of March 23, 2023), plus continue to seek acquisition opportunities that create value for our shareholders. We look forward to providing regular updates on our project portfolio over the coming months.”

*Note that AgEq calculations in this press release are based on the following parameters: $1700/oz Au, $20/oz Ag, $3.00/lb Cu, $0.90/lb Pb, $1.20/lb Zn (all prices in US$).
