TORONTOJuly 9, 2024 /CNW/ - Silver Mountain Resources Inc. ("Silver Mountain" or "the Company") (TSXV: AGMR) (OTCQB: AGMRF) is pleased to announce that Peru´s Ministry of Energy and Mines has approved the Reliquias and Caudalosa Mine Closure Plans, a key milestone permit needed to commence production in this historic mining district located in central Peru.

Alvaro Espinoza, CEO of Silver Mountain, remarked, "We welcome the approval of the Reliquias and Caudalosa Mine Closure Plans. Our legal, technical, and permitting team has done exceptional work preparing and presenting a solid mine closure plan which fully complies with Peru´s rigorous environmental standards. The Mine Closure Plans are some of the final permits required to restart commercial production at the Reliquias Mine and, coupled with the recently approved extension of the environmental certification, brings us closer to our goal of becoming Peru's next silver producer. The Company continues to advance  its work at the Reliquias Mine at a time of high metal prices and improving market sentiment towards silver producers."

The approval of the Mine Closure Plans includes authorizing the disposal of waste material from the underground Reliquias Mine into the historic Matacaballo open pit, simultaneously reducing the project´s footprint and remediating historic environmental liabilities.
