VANCOUVER, BC, May 19, 2022 /CNW/ - Vizsla Silver Corp. (TSX-V: VZLA) (NYSE: VZLA) (Frankfurt: 0G3) ("Vizsla" or the "Company") is pleased to report results from 10 new drill holes targeting the Tajitos - Copala resource area, at its 100%-owned, flagship Panuco silver-gold project ("Panuco" or the "Project") located in Mexico. The results are centered on a vein splay discovered at the northern end of Tajitos, at the footwall of the low angle Copala Vein.
CS-22-161 returned 3,513 grams per tonne (g/t) silver equivalent (AgEq) over 2.65 metres true width (mTW) (2,461 g/t silver and 13.16 g/t gold)
CS-22-157 returned 1,013 g/t AgEq over 4.20 mTW (713 g/t silver and 3.76 g/t gold)
CS-22-154 returned 3,286 g/t AgEq over 1.70 mTW (2,400 g/t silver and 11.08 g/t gold)
CS-22-158 returned 1,671 g/t AgEq over 1.50 mTW (1,140 g/t silver and 6.65 g/t gold)
"Tajitos and Copala continue to be a major focus for near-term resource expansion at Panuco," commented Michael Konnert, President and CEO. "While drilling the northern end of the Tajitos resource area, we discovered a new high-grade splay, located between Tajitos and Copala. This newly discovered vein was not included in the March 2022 resource estimate and further demonstrates the robust nature of the underlying mineralized system in the district. Vizsla currently has three rigs targeting the Tajitos-Copala area focused on category conversion and expanding the initial resource base."

The Copala Vein is a shallow dipping structure located within the Tajitos hangingwall along the northern extent of the Tajitos resource area. Copala is marked by high precious metals grades (up to 2,147 g/t silver and 18.04 g/t gold over 2.31 mTW, see the Company's news release dated January 19, 2022) hosted within a broader lower grade envelope of vein-breccia up to 82 meters thick. The area hosts additional precious metals-rich veins including Cristiano and Vein-3, which have been reported previously.
Drilling conducted during Q1 2022 and a reinterpretation of drill-holes from late 2021 along the northern portion of the Tajitos – Copala resource area led to the discovery of a new vein (blind to surface), between the Tajitos and Copala veins. The new vein, referred to as Copala 2, is located at the footwall of the shallow dipping Copala Vein and strikes north-south and dips at 50° to the east. Preliminary interpretations of drilling data highlight a southeast plunging shoot, with a strike length of approximately 300 metres, that remains open to the north. Copala 2 merges with the Copala Vein towards surface, and narrows at depth before intersecting Vein-3.
The Company is encouraged that the northern sector of the Tajitos – Copala resource area continues to grow, and the recent discovery of this new vein demonstrates the great potential for additional blind to surface veins in the district. Vizsla is currently negotiating land access and has prepared a drill plan to advance the exploration of the Tajitos - Copala area to the north. Other target veins that remain to be explored to the north, at the footwall of Tajitos, include Agua Zarca and La Tlacuacha.

About the Panuco project
The newly consolidated Panuco silver-gold project is an emerging high-grade discovery located in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, near the city of Mazatlán. The 6,754-hectare, past producing district benefits from over 75 kilometres of total vein extent, 35 kilometres of underground mines, roads, power, and permits.
The district contains intermediate to low sulfidation epithermal silver and gold deposits related to siliceous volcanism and crustal extension in the Oligocene and Miocene. Host rocks are mainly continental volcanic rocks correlated to the Tarahumara Formation.
The Panuco Project hosts an estimated in-situ indicated mineral resource of 61.1Moz AgEq and an in-situ inferred resource of 45.6Moz AgEq The Technical Report, titled "National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report for the Panuco Project Mineral Resource Estimate Concordia, Sinaloa, Mexico" was filed on SEDAR on April 7, 2022, has an effective date of March 1, 2022 and was prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") by Tim Maunula, P.Geo., Principal Geologist, T. Maunula & Associates Consulting Inc and Kevin Murray, P.Eng, Manager Process Engineering, Ausenco.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control
Drill core and rock samples were shipped to ALS Limited in Zacatecas, Zacatecas, Mexico and in North Vancouver, Canada for sample preparation and for analysis at the ALS laboratory in North Vancouver. The ALS Zacatecas and North Vancouver facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified. Silver and base metals were analyzed using a four-acid digestion with an ICP finish and gold was assayed by 30-gram fire assay with atomic absorption ("AA") spectroscopy finish. Over limit analyses for silver, lead and zinc were re-assayed using an ore-grade four-acid digestion with AA finish.
Control samples comprising certified reference samples, duplicates and blank samples were systematically inserted into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the Company's quality assurance / quality control protocol.
In accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"), Martin Dupuis, P.Geo., COO, is the Qualified Person for the Company and has reviewed and approved the technical and scientific content of this news release.
Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources
The scientific and technical information in this news release was prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 which differs significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The terms "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource" used in this video are in reference to the mining terms defined in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Standards (the "CIM Definition Standards"), which definitions have been adopted by NI 43-101. Accordingly, information contained in this video providing descriptions of our mineral deposits in accordance with NI 43-101 may not be comparable to similar information made public by other U.S. companies subject to the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.
You are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral resources will ever be converted into reserves. Pursuant to CIM Definition Standards, "inferred mineral resources" are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Such geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. An inferred mineral resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an indicated mineral resource and must not be converted to a mineral reserve. However, it is reasonably expected that the majority of inferred mineral resources could be upgraded to indicated mineral resources with continued exploration. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource is economically or legally mineable. Disclosure of "contained ounces" in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute "reserves" by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures.
Canadian standards, including the CIM Definition Standards and NI 43-101, differ significantly from standards in the SEC Industry Guide 7. Effective February 25, 2019, the SEC adopted new mining disclosure rules under subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "SEC Modernization Rules"), with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. The SEC Modernization Rules replace the historical property disclosure requirements included in SEC Industry Guide 7. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources". Information regarding mineral resources contained or referenced in this video may not be comparable to similar information made public by companies that report according to U.S. standards. While the SEC Modernization Rules are purported to be "substantially similar" to the CIM Definition Standards, readers are cautioned that there are differences between the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definitions Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral resources that the Company may report as "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources" under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules.
Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
