(1) Notes for Mineral Resource Estimate:

  1. Canadian Institute of Mining Metallurgy and Petroleum ("CIM") definition standards were followed for the resource estimate.
  2. The 2023 resource models used nominal cutoff grades which are based on mining and milling costs of US$50 for cut and fill mining, US$38 per tonne for long-hole,
  3. A net payable recovery of 70% (historical plant recovery plus an allowance for smelter deductions, refining costs, and concentrate transportation)
  4. Silver price of US$22 and a gold price of $1700 and a Gold Silver Ration of 77.27:1.
  5. Assays were capped at 825 g/t for silver and 6.55 g/t for gold
  6. Variable cut-off by deposit
    1. Nazareno and Coloso - Block Model 135 AgEq cut-off grade (COG) and a 1 m Minimum True Thickness
    2. Guitarra - Polygonals Estimates 135 g/t AgEq COG and a 1 m Minimum Horizontal Width
    3. Los Angeles - Block Model Long Hole Mining 90 g/t AgEq COG
    4. Mina De Agua - East District Polygonal Estimate 135 g/t AgEq COG or 90 g/t AgEq COG and > 2 m Horizontal Width
    5. The tailings used a 30 g/t AgEq COG.
  7. Mineral Resources that are not mineral reserves do not have economic viability. Numbers may not add due to rounding.
  8. Numbers may not add due to rounding.
  9. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by: metal prices and exchange rate assumptions; changes in local interpretations of mineralization geometry and continuity; changes to grade capping, density and domain assignments; changes to geotechnical, mining and metallurgical recovery assumptions; ability to maintain environmental and other regulatory permits and ability to maintain the social license to operate
  10. The 2023 resource estimate is prepared by David Thomas P.Geo. and Q.P. and Cristian Garcia P.Eng. and QP, of TechSer in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

About Sierra Madre

Sierra Madre Gold & Silver (TSXV:SM),(OTCQX:SMDRF) is a precious metals development and exploration company, focused on evaluating the potential of restarting the La Guitarra Mine in the Temascaltepec mining district, Mexico, and the exploration and development of its Tepic and La Tigra properties in Nayarit, Mexico. The La Guitarra Mine is a permitted, past-producing underground mine which includes a 500 t/d processing facility that operated until mid-2018.

The +2,600 ha Tepic Project hosts low-sulphidation epithermal gold and silver mineralization with an existing historic resource. La Tigra, located 148 km north of Tepic, has been mined historically; Sierra Madre´s maiden 2022 drill program at the site intercepted shallow mineralization.

Sierra Madre´s management has played key roles for managing exploration and development of more than 22Moz gold and 600Moz silver in combined reserves and resources. Sierra Madre´s team of professionals has collectively raised over $1B for mining companies.
