Maya Gold & Silver Intersects Very High Grade Ag at its Zgounder Silver Mine

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - July 12, 2017) - Maya Gold & Silver Inc. ("Maya" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:MYA) is very pleased to announce the highest intersection ever drilled by Maya since it took 85% ownership of the Zgounder property in Morocco.

The drillhole 2000-T28-17-124 intersected 3809 g/t Ag over 18 meters from 3.6 to 21.6 meters. This new intersection includes higher grade intervals including 9430 g/t over 7.2m from 4.8 to 12m and including 51.6 Kg/t Ag (51630 g/t or 5.16% or 1660 Oz/t Ag) over 1.2 meters at 6m. This percussion drillhole collared in a manway at elevation 2016mZ in the north sector within Panel 8. It is collared at 275925.78E, 420394.7N, 2016Z drilled North-East (63N) 15 degrees up dip.

Uncut Ag results. (20smp)* the 51630 g/t is the average of 20 analysis ranging from 4.41% to 5.79% Ag, 10 from original powder at the laboratory and 10 from the witness powder from the geology department. This is drill length, additional drilling is required to define the exact geometry of this high-grade intersection.

"The exceptional intersection at the 2000 level is breaking new grounds with this 5.16%/t Ag. This discovery supports that all extensions of the Zgounder deposit remain open at depth and in all sides and could provide us with more promising surprises in the future with an opportunity for further Resource expansion. In addition, traces from ancient mining activities and from previous contemporary operators focused on only small portions of the mine, leaving vaster potential for exploration and additional discoveries." said Noureddine Mokaddem, President and CEO of Maya.

Quality Control / Quality Assurance (QA/QC)

The results include blanks and standards as normal control procedures at the mine. The mine laboratory has also carried out duplicates to confirm repeatability of results. The high grade interval was assayed 20 times under witnesses prior to disclosure. The results are considered to be reliable for disclosure as laboratory procedures and QA/QC were reviewed in previous assignment by independent QP. Assays are not capped; Ag by AA intersected disclosure are variable according to the Cut Off Grade applied for large scale mining or selective mining scenario.
