VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 3, 2021 / Fabled Silver Gold Corp. ('Fabled' or the 'Company') (TSXV:FCO)(OTCQB:FBSGF), and (FRA:7NQ) is pleased to announce results of underground diamond drilling from the 1,200-meter underground drill program on the 'Santa Maria' Property in Parral, Mexico.

As mentioned previously, underground drilling is currently taking place from drill stations in the ramp, or in mined out areas, where bulk samples were taken by previous property holders. Unfortunately, the ramp was centered down the Santa Maria vein to access mineralized material as they advanced the ramp. This has resulted in the higher-grade portion of the Santa Maria Vein being absent from the beginning of most of the drill holes.

This begs the question that, if this is the case, what is the purpose of drilling? We know from previous holes drilled in this program, that the Santa Maria vein and Santa Maria Dos veins are the footwall and hanging wall of a mineralized structure and the purpose of the program is to determine the widths of this structure. As the ramp is restrictive, useful available drill locations will become sparser, and therefore the Company is planning to establish new 'proper' drill bays for future holes, see Figure 1.

Drill holes SMUG21-04, 5, 6 were all drilled from the same drill station and were collared approximately 75 meters east of drill station 03 and designed to test the extent of the Santa Maria Dos footwall mineralization.

Drill hole SMUG21-04 was drilled at a dip of -30 degrees and was successful in intercepting three zones of silver mineralization. From the beginning or the collar of the hole, 9.0 meters of silver mineralization was found, including 4.50 meters grading 147.19 g/t Ag Eq. This is part of the mineralized foot wall of the Santa Maria vein. Further on, a 5.40 meters silver bearing breccia zone was encountered reporting 50.09 g/t Ag Eq, and at the hanging wall of the structure or the location of the Santa Maria Dos vein 2.2 meters was intercepted grading 127.66 g/t Ag Eq.

Drill hole SMUG21-06 as drilled at a dip of -45 degrees and again was successful in the interception of a 3.70 meter breccia zone, which included 0.70 meters 0f 102.89 g/t Ag Eq and the hanging wall structure, which reported 95.58 g/t Ag Eq over 2.90 meters including 194.76 g/t Ag Eq over 1.15 meters.

Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President, remarks, 'The results of SMUG21-04 - 06 inclusively, continues to further define and refine the hanging wall zones of silver mineralization in the Santa Maria Structure.'

As the ramp increases in depth, we expect the near surface lower grade oxide component to decrease, and start to see some supergene enrichment at the contact between oxides and sulphides.

Underground drill hole SMUG21-05 was drilled on a different azimuth or direction than holes SMUG20-04 and SMUG20-06 at -20 degrees dip. Once again, we successfully intercept silver mineralization on the hanging wall structure that reported 150.33 g/t Ag Eq over 4.8 meters and which contained a higher-grade section of 3.0 meters of 223.79 g/t Ag Eq.

As mentioned in the preamble drill site space becomes more confined in areas due to the nature of the exploration ramp being driven down the mineralized Santa Marie footwall structure.

SMUG20- 7-10, inclusive were abandoned due to either hitting a void from previous bulk samples taken or deviation. Holes SMUG20- 11 and 12 have been completed and submitted for assay while SMUG20-13 is in progress.

QA QC Procedure
Analytical results of sampling reported by Fabled Silver Gold represent core samples that have been sawn in half with half of the core sampled and submitted by Fabled Silver Gold staff directly to ALS Chemex, Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico. Samples were crushed, split, and pulverized as per ALS Chemex method PREP-31, then analyzed for ME-ICP61 33 element package by four acid digestion with ICP-AES Finish. ME-GRA21 method for Au and Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish, 30g nominal sample weight.

Over Limit Methods
For samples triggering precious metal over-limit thresholds of 10 g/t Au or 100 g/t Ag, the following is being used:

Au-GRA21 Au by fire assay and gravimetric finish with 30 g sample.

Ag-GRA21 Ag by fire assay and gravimetric finish.

Fabled Silver Gold monitors QA/QC using commercially sourced standards and locally sourced blank materials inserted within the sample sequence at regular intervals.

About Fabled Silver Gold Corp.
Fabled is focused on acquiring, exploring and operating properties that yield near-term metal production. The Company has an experienced management team with multiple years of involvement in mining and exploration in Mexico. The Company's mandate is to focus on acquiring precious metal properties in Mexico with blue-sky exploration potential.

The Company has entered into an agreement with Golden Minerals Company (AUMN) to acquire the Santa Maria Property, a high-grade silver-gold property situated in the center of the Mexican epithermal silver-gold belt. The belt has been recognized as a significant metallogenic province, which has reportedly produced more silver than any other equivalent area in the world.
