Silver Elephant’s El Triunfo East Block Drills 25.7 meters of 1.1g/t AuEq in Bolivia, All Three TEB Drill Holes Encountered Gold Mineralisation.

Vancouver, British Columbia, January 12, 2023 – Silver Elephant Mining Corp. (“Silver Elephant”, or the “Company”) (TSX: ELEF, OTCQX: SILEF, Frankfurt: 1P2N) announces diamond drilling results from the Company’s 100%-controlled El Triunfo gold-silver project located 75 km east of La Paz city, Bolivia. Five holes totaling 1,500 meters were drilled on El Triunfo West Block (“TWB”) and newly discovered El Triunfo East Block (“TEB”) based on induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical anomalies identified in 2021.

TR-009 encountered 14 meters of 2.5 g/t AuEq and TR010 drilled 1.2 meters of 7.7 g/t within 45 meters grading 0.7 AuEq (see Company’s press release dated April 4, 2022). TR009 and TR010 were drilled at eastern and western edges of the Triunfo West block (known strike 750 meters, “TWB”) and successfully expanded the mineralized width and open up the exploration prospects immediately west of the TWB.

TR011, -012, -013 are drilled at wide spacing at the Triunfo East block (“TEB”), a 1.5 kilometer extension to the TWB that is separated by a fault that resulted in this area being previously unexplored until recently.

TR-011 encountered separate intersections of 2 meters of 2.87 g/t AuEq (0.42 g/t Au, 81 g/t Ag, 2.04% Pb, 4 meters of 1.72 g/t AuEq (0.34 g/t Au, 46 g/t Ag, 1.16% Pb, 0.78% Zn), and 1.29% Zn), and 1 meter of 3.5 g/t AuEq (1.4 g/t Au, 75 g/t Ag, 1.82% Pb, and 2.35% Zn) within 298 meters grading 0.14 AuEq, starting from 2 meters downhole.

TR-012 encountered 2 meters of 1.3 g/t AuEq (0.94 g/t Au, 11 g/t Ag, 0.30% Pb, 0.21% Zn), 1 meter of 2.76 AuEq (0.34 g/t Au, 45 g/t Ag, 1.15% Pb, 3.04% Zn), 1 meter of 3.4 AuEq (2.7 g/t Au, 26 g/t Ag, 0.671% Pb, 0.583% Zn), and 2 meters of 2.1 g/t AuEq (1.54 g/t Au, 12 g/t Ag, 0.47% Pb, and 0.76% Zn).

TR-013 encountered 25.7 meters of 1.1 g/t AuEq (0.4 g/t Au, 27 g/t Ag, 0.88% Pb, 0.58% Zn), 3 meters of 3.3 AuEq (1.1 g/t Au, 74 g/t Ag, 2.82% Pb, 1.47% Zn), and 2.6 meters of 1.98 AuEq (0.13 g/t Au, 70.3 g/t Ag, 1.72% Pb, 0.68% Zn).

John Lee, CEO of Silver Elephant states: The results from drill holes TR-011, TR-012 and TR-013 triples the strike length of the Truinfo polymetallic target which is now over 2 kilometers long and indicate that a large mineralizing system is present with notable high grade intercepts. Additional geologic work will be conducted to determine the lithologic and structural controls of the mineralization to come up with high grade drill targets.

*AuEq: Gold equivalent calculation uses a gold price of $1,815, a zinc price of $1.38, a lead price of $1.07, and a silver price of $24.00 (all USD) and assumes a 100% metallurgical recovery. Gold equivalent values can be calculated using the following formula: AuEq = Au g/t + (Ag g/t x 0.0102) + (Zn % x 0.3551) + (Pb % x 0.3055). Core widths are not true widths. True widths are estimated to range between 45-78% of true widths based on core angle measurements.
