Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 1, 2023) - Prismo Metals Inc. (CSE: PRIZ) (OTCQB: PMOMF) ("Prismo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the drill rig for its upcoming exploration program has mobilized to its Los Pavitos project located in the well mineralized Alamos region of southern Sonora State, Mexico. The Company plans to test the main mineralized targets with a first ever drill program planned for approximately 2500 meters.

The Company also announced assay results for the last four trenches for its recently completed trenching program (Table 1, also see News Release of July 21, 2023). Two samples from the Santa Cruz area yielded 3.98 and 1.18 g/t Au over 1 and 2.7 meters respectively as shown in the table of results in Table 2.

Dr. Craig Gibson, President and CEO, commented: "Exploration over the last year and a half has identified several robust exploration targets at Los Pavitos. We are looking forward to drilling the particularly prospective Santa Cruz and Las Aurus areas as well as other mineralized zones. The first round of drilling will be comprised of shallow inclined holes of 75-100 m depths to confirm correct dip and widths of the mineralized structures."

The trenching program across the main mineralized trends on the Los Pavitos property consisted of a cumulative length of 698 meters in 25 trenches. The best assays for individual samples are 20.4 g/t Au and 207 g/t Ag over 2 meters at Las Auras and 16.7 g/t Au and 48,2 g/t Ag over 1 meter at Santa Cruz. The main objective of the trenching program was to define the orientation and full width of the mineralized structures prior to starting the drill campaign.

Palos Verdes Drilling Update

The Company is in the process of completing a 2,500-meter drill program on the Palos Verdes project. The drill program is designed to test the areas of the Palos Verdes vein system in areas where there previously was no drill access, mainly along the northeastern extension of the vein system and certain areas in the southwestern portion where previous drilling occurred. Ten holes have been completed for a total of about 2,035 meters of HQ core drilled for the current program, with an eleventh hole in progress. Assays for seven holes, PV-23-19 to PV-23-25 have been reported. Three holes remain in the program, after which the drill crew is expected to take a two-week break.

Rock samples taken by Prismo were analyzed by multielement ICP-AES and MS methods by ALS Group, an internationally recognized analytical service provider. Gold is analyzed as part of the ICP package using a 25-gram aqua regia digestion. Ag, Pb and Zn over 1% and Au values over 1 g/t are re-analyzed by the by an overrange ICP method. Certified Reference Materials including standard pulps and coarse blank material were inserted in the sample stream at regular intervals.
