Prophecy Starts 5,000 Meter Drilling at Its Pulacayo Silver Project, Bolivia

Prophecy Development Corp. (“Prophecy” or the “Company”) (TSX: PCY, OTCQX: PRPCF, Frankfurt:1P2N) is pleased to announce that phase two drilling has started at its Pulacayo-Paca silver-zinc-lead project in Bolivia. It is a 5,000-meter program that will consist mainly of wide step-out drilling up to 1.5km west (Western Block) of the current 43-101 Pulacayo resource. That current Pulacayo resource covers 1.4 km in strike and represents only a small portion of the Tajo vein system which is over 3 km in strike and open to least 1,000 meters at depth, according to historical records of underground mining.

Joaquin Merino, Prophecy’s VP for South American Operation, states: “Current artisanal mining at the surface serves as strong evidence that the Tajo vein (where underground mining took place from early 1800 to 1952) projects to surface at the Western Block. Pulacayo is a very large system and with this program we will test the boundaries of mineralization near the surface and its continuity along strike.” The drill program is fully funded with a recent $3.9 million equity financing backed by Mr. Eric Sprott.

The Pulacayo deposit currently has a NI43-101 compliant resource of 2.08 million tonnes at Ag 455 g/t, Pb 2.18%, Zn 3.19% in the indicated category. It also has 0.48 million tonnes at Ag 406 g/t, Pb 2.08%, Zn 3.93% in the inferred category. The Company estimates that the amounts of metals of the indicated category are 30.4 million ounces of silver, 100.0 million pounds of lead, and 146.3 million pounds of zinc. The Company estimates that the amounts of metals of the inferred category are 6.3 million ounces of silver, 22.0 million pounds of lead, and 41.6 million pounds of zinc (see Company report “UPDATED MINERAL RESOURCE ESTIMATE TECHNICAL REPORT for the PULACAYO PROJECT,” by Mercator effective October 20, 2017; available at SEDAR.COM).
