Pan American Silver Corp announced results for 14 holes drilled on the La Colorada polymetallic skarn discovery in Mexico during the fourth quarter of 2019. Pan American's Vice President Business Development and Geology Christopher Emerson said "Further step-out exploration drill results demonstrate the potential to increase our initial 72.5 million tonne resource estimate announced on December 11, 2019. Drillholes U-88-19 and U-105-19 indicate extensions of high grade massive sulphides to the southeast, while holes D-81-01-19 and S-81-19 indicate the resource may expand to the northeast."

Drill highlights include:
U-88-19: 270.9 m at 60 g/t Ag, 0.17% Cu, 2.69% Pb and 4.52% Zn including 166.9 m at 85 g/t Ag, 0.18% Cu, 3.93% Pb and 6.39% Zn
U-105-19: 192.5 m at 30 g/t Ag, 0.15% Cu, 2.42% Pb and 3.51% Zn including 105.6 m at 29 g/t Ag, 0.14% Cu, 3.05% Pb and 4.52% Zn
D-30-03-19: 76.1 m at 35 g/t Ag, 0.20% Cu, 2.04% Pb and 3.31% Zn
D-30-05-19: 62.5 m at 51 g/t Ag, 0.28% Cu, 1.79% Pb and 4.57% Zn
D-81-01-19: 32.9 m at 54 g/t Ag, 1.15% Cu, 0.36% Pb and 2.51% Zn and 75.9 m at 78 g/t Ag, 0.50% Cu, 0.34% Pb and 3.83% Zn and 19.2 m at 133 g/t Ag, 0.88% Cu, 0.25% Pb and 3.36% Zn
U-87-19: 47.2 m at 33 g/t Ag, 0.09% Cu, 2.13% Pb and 4.95% Zn
S-81-19: 24.5 m at 54 g/t Ag, 0.05% Cu, 2.01% Pb and 10.33% Zn and 28.8 m at 43 g/t Ag, 0.16% Cu, 1.03% Pb and 3.54% Zn

Since the discovery in 2018, Pan American has drilled a total of approximately 60,000 metres on the La Colorada skarn. An initial inferred mineral resource estimate of the deposit was provided in the Company's news release dated December 11, 2019. The most recent drill results provided in this news release were not included in this initial resource estimate.
