Silver Mountain Reports Initial High Grade Results of 2,315 G/T of Silver, 1.64 G/T of Gold and 1.10 % Copper Over 1.16 Metres

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 8, 2014) - Silver Mountain Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMM) ("Silver Mountain" or the "Company") announces the completion of its summer drill program on its wholly-owned Ptarmigan Property (the "Property"), located near Radium, British Columbia.

The drill program commenced on July 19, 2014 and completed a total of approximately 3,690 metres in 25 diamond drill holes in the Ptarmigan Mine area. The objective of the 2014 drill program was to develop and extend the mineralized body interpreted from previous drill programs, extending south of Adit#2 surface exposure and plunging through mineralization remaining in the Level 1 workings. In addition, holes were drilled in the Ptarmigan Mine area for further development of the Level 1, Adit #2 and Adit #3 workings.

Two exploration holes PT14-104, a vertical hole extending 538 m from surface, and PT14-105, drilled at an inclination of -70° to a depth of 269 m, tested interpreted lithological and structural controls on mineralization within the Ptarmigan Basin.

Extending the results of previous drill programs, the 2014 drill program successfully intersected and extended the mineralized body and identified additional high grade mineralization. The following table summarizes initial independent lab results from massive sulphide intercepts on four of the 25 total drill holes.

The results from a further 19 drill holes subsequently completed in the Ptarmigan Mine area will be released as results become available. Please see http://www.silvermountainmines.com/maps.asp for updated maps.

QA-QC All samples were submitted to AGAT Laboratories ("AGAT") for analysis, an independent certified laboratory and preparation facility which maintain an ISO 17025 accreditation by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). All samples were securely stored at the Ptarmigan Mine site and shipped to their Toronto Laboratory for analysis.
