HERMOSA PROPERTY – TWO DISTINCT PROJECTS

 

NORTH WEST – CARBONATE REPLACEMENT ZINC, LEAD AND SILVER EXPLORATION PROJECT

 

CENTRAL – ONE OF THE LARGEST UNDEVELOPED SILVER DEPOSITS IN NORTH AMERICA

 
AZ Mining is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on the development of its 80% owned Hermosa property located in Santa Cruz County, Arizona. The Hermosa property currently has two distinct projects: Hermosa North West, a zinc-lead-silver carbonate replacement zone sulfide mineral exploration project; and Hermosa Central, a silver-manganese manto oxide development project. North West has a resource calculated in accordance with NI 43-101 and is currently being drilled to test the limits of that resource. The Company released the results of the first five holes of the current drill program on North West in May, 2015 that showed high grade zinc, lead and silver intercepts over significant thicknesses. Central’s December 2013 prefeasibility study indicates it is expected to be one of the largest primary silver producers as well as the only electrolytic manganese metal producer in the USA at industry low cash costs. The pre-feasibility study estimates annual production of 5.7 million ounces of silver and 110 million pounds of electrolytic manganese metal (EMM) at average cash costs of $4.41 per silver ounce and $0.74 per EMM pound over an 18 year mine life.
