Liberty Lake, Washington, February 28, 2018 – Hunt Mining Corp. (the “Corporation” or “Hunt”) (TSX VENTURE: “HMX” OTC: “HMXZF”) is pleased to announce the first six concentrate shipments from production at the Martha Project have been finalized, and produced an additional 20,049 silver and 31 additional ounces of gold back from the smelter. In addition to the improved ounces of silver and gold, the timing of when the Corporation sold the ounces factored significantly and added for total increase US $634,076.
This positive revision will result in added revenue being recognized in Quarter 1 2018. With the ongoing production at the Martha Project and continuing concentrate deliveries facilitated through Ocean Partners USA Inc., Hunt may experience an increase or decrease in the amount of silver and / or gold ounces received by the smelter moving forward.
Production at the Martha Project is being undertaken without established mineral resources or reserves and the Corporation has not established the economic viability of the operations on the Martha Project. As a result, there is increased uncertainty and economic risks of failure associated with these production activities.
Klaus Triebel, Hunt Mining's director of project development, is the qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 who has approved the technical and scientific aspects of this press release.
