(the "Corporation" or "Hunt") (TSX VENTURE:HMX) is pleased to announce drill results from exploration activities at the Martha Project located in the Santa Cruz Province, Argentina. Hunt has an ongoing exploration program designed to expand upon potential material to be processed at the Martha Mill, which was brought into production in January 2017.

Hunt continued drilling along the trend of the Martha vein immediately to the west of existing Martha Mine workings utilizing a surface blasthole drill. A total of 16 drill holes were drilling to a maximum depth of 25 meters downhole length. Samples were collected in 1 meter intervals and were analyzed at the Martha Project on-site laboratory. Of the 16 holes drilled, 7 intercepted mineralization of more than 1,000 g/t Ag with one interval grading 15,471 g/t Ag and 28.6 g/t Au over 4 meters. Highlights of this drill program are as follows:
