Silver Mountain Reports 1,949 g/t Silver Over 4.6 Metres, Including 5,919 g/t Over 1.49 Metres and 22,945 g/t Over 0.33 Metres on Its Ptarmigan Property(i)

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 7, 2014) - Silver Mountain Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMM) ("Silver Mountain" or the "Company") is pleased to announce further drill results from its wholly-owned Ptarmigan Property (the "Property"), located near Radium, British Columbia, including results from additional drill holes.

Significant results of weighted average drill intercepts include 4.60 metres grading 1,949 g/t Ag, 0.803 g/t Au and 0.72 % Cu, including 0.33 metres grading 22,945 g/t Ag, 5.75 g/t Au and 8.24% Cu and 1.49 metres grading 5,919 g/t Ag, 1.87 g/t Au and 2.18% Cu in hole PT14-118. These results increase the length of high grade silver-rich, massive sulphide mineralization documented by over 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. Mineralization remains open along faults to the south towards Iron Cap Basin.

Additional mineralized intercepts have been documented from the following holes: PT14-112 with 1.34 metres grading 1,208 g/t of Ag, 2.35 g/t Au and 1.26% Cu, including 0.29 meters grading 5,426 g/t Ag, 16.26 g/t Au and 3.21% Cu, PT14-116 with 1.0 metre grading 1,188 g/t of Ag, 0.55 g/t Au and 0.45% Cu, including 0.21 meters grading 5,261 g/t Ag, 2.18 g/t Au and 1.99% Cu and PT14-119 with 0.26 metres grading 5,243 g/t Ag, 2.20 g/t Au and 1.88% Cu. In addition, PT14-114 intersected 0.98 metres grading 0.64 g/t Au from a second intercept of massive sulphide mineralization at a shallower depth. These additional drill results, together with results previously released (see News Release dated Sept. 8, 2014) in the Ptarmigan Mine area confirm extension of massive sulphide mineralization remaining in the Level 1 workings. In addition, high grade intercepts documented at shallower levels suggest at least three mineralized structures within the target area.

"Our goal is to continue expanding the high grade mineralization and to further develop the potential of significant polymetallic manto/vein mineralization in a historically rich mineralized area. I believe results to date strongly support interpretations extending documented mineralization along the west margin of the Ptarmigan Basin southward toward mineralization documented within the Iron Cap Adits and the underground workings of the Nip and Tuck Mine. Together, these occurrences of known high grade mineralization demonstrate the discovery potential for additional well mineralized hidden targets throughout the property," says Steve Konopelky, President of the company.
