VANCOUVER, BC, May 3, 2021 /CNW/ - ORO X MINING CORP. (TSXV: OROX) (OTC Pink: WRPSF) (“Oro X” or the “Company”) and Mines & Metals Trading (Peru) PLC (“MMTP”, also commercially known as “Latitude Silver”) are pleased to provide an update on their previously announced business combination (the “Transaction”) to form “Silver X Mining”.  The parties have received the conditional acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) for the Transaction and are diligently working to satisfy the Exchange’s requirements for final approval. The Transaction is expected to close in June of 2021.

In addition, the parties confirm the filing on May 3, 2021 of an amended and restated technical report on the Recuperada Project dated effective October 15, 2020 entitled “NI 43-101 Technical Report for the Recuperada Project, Peru” (the “Technical Report”). The Technical Report was amended and refiled to address final comments received from the Exchange. The Technical Report is available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com. Highlights of the Technical Report includes an inferred resource of 7.3 million tonnes (Mt) at a combined grade of 130.38 g/t Ag, 3.17% Pb/T and 2.04% Zn/T, along with a fully operational 600 tonnes per day processing operating plant. The key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to estimate MMTP's mineral resources includes the verifiable portion of the historic (Buenaventura, Panamerican Silver) data by site visits, core examination and database confirmation and physical verification of the current Gemin and MMTP exploration data.  

Oro X CEO Luis Zapata stated “receiving conditional acceptance from the Exchange along with the recent closing of our $14.1 million subscription receipt financing are key milestones in our transaction with Latitude to become Silver X Mining. We are excited to soon bring Silver X Mining to market as Latin America’s next public silver producer. The combination of the Latitude team and its assets including the 15,000 Ha Recuperada Project and a fully permitted and operational 600 tpd processing operating plant is a powerful combination in any market, but especially today where the demand for silver is at an all-time high”.
