Outlook In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared coronavirus COVID-19 a global pandemic. This contagious disease outbreak, which has continued to spread, and any related adverse public health developments, has adversely affected workforces, economies, and financial markets globally. The Company anticipates that travel bans and self-imposed quarantine periods will continue to inhibit some measure of operational efficiency for some time. It is not possible to reliably estimate the length and severity of these conditions and the impact on the condition of the Company in future periods. Zacatecas Silver Corp. Period-ended June 30, 2022 During the period, the Company completed a $19 million financing, enabling the Company to close the acquisition of the Esperanza gold project. The Company will use the funds from the financing to continue advancing both the Zacatecas silver project and the Esperanza gold project and to meet its ongoing obligations and general administrative expenses. As the Company has no source of revenue at this time, it will continue to require additional capital to fund future office and administrative expenditures and to advance the Company's projects. In late 2021, the Company released its maiden resource on the Zacatecas silver project and, during the first half of 2022, continued drilling to advance the Zacatecas silver project. While the Company continues to receive assays, it has elected to halt drilling until all assays are received. After the Company receives the outstanding assays, the Company has sufficient drill permits in place to recommence drilling on the Zacatecas Property with Major Drilling de Mexico CV. The Company has commenced its current resource estimation on the Esperanza gold project, which will be used as the foundation for the prefeasibility study (PFS). The Company has appointed Palaris to lead the PFS, which will define the project's scope, a key component of an MIA submission (Manifestacion de Impacto Ambiental or EIA). Palaris will work with the Company's technical staff, independent mineral resource modellers and metallurgists, and the in-country specialist consultancies responsible for the MIA.
