Silver Mountain Confirms Extension of High Grade Silver Mineralization With Gold Values of Up to 37.3 g/t Over 0.77 Metres

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 15, 2014) - Silver Mountain Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMM) ("Silver Mountain" or the "Company") is pleased to announce drill results from the remainder of the 2014 drill holes completed on its wholly-owned Ptarmigan Property (the "Property"), located near Radium, British Columbia.

The Company's 2014 diamond drill program completed 28 drill holes comprising of approximately 3,690 metres in the Ptarmigan Mine area. The program successfully extended the known sub-surface extent of high grade, silver-rich, massive sulphide mineralization by approximately 110 metres from the 2012 drill hole intercepts above the Level 1 workings and approximately 160 metres from massive sulphides exposed at surface at Adit #2.

The mineralization has been confirmed by drilling from Adit #3 at the Ptarmigan Mine to, and through, the Iron Cap, a distance of approximately 1 km. Furthermore, the mineralization has been traced north to the West Vein on the North Ridge, a further 600 m. In total, the mineralization has been traced over approximately 1.6 km, with additional lenses and pods identified adjacent to and in association with the main zones of mineralization.

The results of diamond drill results from 2012 and 2014 on the Ptarmigan massive sulphide body demonstrates the sub-surface continuity of the mineralization, as well as its polymetallic character. Drill intercepts have documented grades of up to 22,945 g/t silver and 8.24% Cu (see News Release dated October 7, 2014) and 37.30 g/t gold (see below), with anomalous lead content. Intercepts having abundant sulphosalts have returned high grade silver analyses (see News Release dated October 7, 2014). Anomalous copper is also associated with the presence of sulphosalts.

The continuity of the massive sulphide mineralized body, interpreted to extend from a massive sulphide exposure at surface (Adit #2) through mineralization exposed in the Level 1 workings and extending through to the intercept documented in PT14-128 is expected to result in further extension of the mineralized body in subsequent drilling. The 2014 drill program has confirmed new mineralization at depth and along strike and the structure remains open along strike and at depth.

Summary of significant results from additional intercepts:
