Mr. Michael Konnert reports:
VANCOUVER, BC, March 17, 2022 /CNW/ – Vizsla Silver Corp. (TSXV: VZLA) (NYSE: VZLA) (Frankfurt: 0G3) (“Vizsla” or the “Company“) is pleased to report results from five new drill holes targeting the Cruz Negra Vein, located 250 metres west of the Napoleon resource area, at its 100%-owned, flagship Panuco silver-gold project (“Panuco” or the “Project“) located in Mexico. The results are a part of Vizsla’s ongoing, fully funded 120,000-meter resource/discovery-based drill program.
Highlights
“One of the most exciting aspects of Panuco is the tremendous growth potential remaining in the district,” commented Michael Konnert, President, and CEO.  “Today’s results highlight this with a new high-grade discovery, Cruz Negra, which is associated with the Josephine Vein in the Napoleon Corridor. Of note is the particularly high gold grades intersected to date at Cruz Negra.  The Company now has eleven rigs on site, increasing to twelve by end of next week, with an equal split of resource expansion and new exploration drilling.  This fits with our 2022 strategy of defining the full extent of mineralization in and around the initial resource areas while simultaneously beginning to unlock the full district endowment.”
About the Cruz Negra Vein results
In mid-2020, the Company undertook an electromagnetic survey that led to the discovery of the Josephine Vein located ~120 metres to the west of the Napoleon Vein.  To date, drilling along Josephine has defined two zones of mineralization that currently contribute 3.0Moz AgEq of indicated and 3.5Moz AgEq inferred to the Project’s maiden resource estimate. A technical report is being prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI-43-101”) and will be available on the Company’s website and SEDAR within 30 days of the date of the Company’s March 1, 2022 news release announcing the resource estimate.

Follow-up mapping along the western edge of the Napoleon Vein Corridor, defined additional targets including the north-west trending Cruz Negra Vein, located immediately to the west of Josephine.  This newly discovered vein may represent a splay off the Josephine Vein or a throughgoing structure that is a splay of the main Napoleon Vein (Figure 1).  Initial drilling successfully intersected both the Josephine and Cruz Negra veins with multiple intercepts in each hole containing high levels of gold mineralization.
Mineralized assay results received for the first five holes (Table 1) at Cruz Negra, highlight a range of downhole widths from 0.7-4.45 metres with grades ranging from 335-3,499 g/t AgEq once at the mineralized elevation. 
Field mapping in the area suggests Cruz Negra continues off the Company’s claims to the northwest, before re entering onto Vizsla ground. The Company is currently gaining an understanding of the local controls to mineralization prior to initial step-out drilling, designed to test the 1.5-kilometre projected length of the Cruz Negra Vein withing Vizsla claims.
As Company geologists continue to expand the prospecting and mapping phases of the exploration program, many new veins are being defined and sampled.  These new targets are then advanced through the Company’s exploration matrix to ultimately become drill targets.  This approach has generated a large number of drill ready targets in the western portion of the district, many within close proximity to the initial Napoleon and Tajitos resource areas. It is these proximal targets that will be a near-term focus for exploration in 2022.

About the Panuco project
The newly consolidated Panuco silver-gold project is an emerging high-grade discovery located in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, near the city of Mazatlán. The 6,754-hectare, past producing district benefits from over 75 kilometres of total vein extent, 35 kilometres of underground mines, roads, power, and permits.
The district contains intermediate to low sulfidation epithermal silver and gold deposits related to siliceous volcanism and crustal extension in the Oligocene and Miocene. Host rocks are mainly continental volcanic rocks correlated to the Tarahumara Formation.
The Panuco Project hosts an estimated in-situ indicated mineral resource of 61.1Moz AgEq and an in situ inferred resource of 45.6Moz AgEq (see Company news release dated March 1, 2022).
About Vizsla Silver
Vizsla Silver is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, focused on advancing its flagship, 100%-owned Panuco silver-gold project located in Sinaloa, Mexico. To date, Vizsla has completed over 140,000 metres of drilling at Panuco leading to the discovery of several new high-grade veins. For 2022, Vizsla has budgeted +120,000 metres of resource/discovery-based drilling, designed to upgrade, and expand the maiden resource as well as test other high priority targets across the district.
Quality Assurance / Quality Control
Drill core and rock samples were shipped to ALS Limited in Zacatecas, Zacatecas, Mexico and in North Vancouver, Canada for sample preparation and for analysis at the ALS laboratory in North Vancouver.  The ALS Zacatecas and North Vancouver facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 certified. Silver and base metals were analyzed using a four-acid digestion with an ICP finish and gold was assayed by 30-gram fire assay with atomic absorption (“AA”) spectroscopy finish. Over limit analyses for silver, lead and zinc were re-assayed using an ore-grade four-acid digestion with AA finish.
Control samples comprising certified reference samples, duplicates and blank samples were systematically inserted into the sample stream and analyzed as part of the Company’s quality assurance / quality control protocol.
Qualified Person
In accordance with NI 43-101, Martin Dupuis, P.Geo., Vice President of Technical Services, is the Qualified Person for the Company and has validated and approved the technical and scientific content of this news release.
Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources
The scientific and technical information in this news release was prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 which differs significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The terms “measured mineral resource”, “indicated mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” used in this video are in reference to the mining terms defined in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Standards (the “CIM Definition Standards”), which definitions have been adopted by NI 43-101. Accordingly, information contained in this video providing descriptions of our mineral deposits in accordance with NI 43-101 may not be comparable to similar information made public by other U.S. companies subject to the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.
You are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral resources will ever be converted into reserves. Pursuant to CIM Definition Standards, “inferred mineral resources” are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Such geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. An inferred mineral resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an indicated mineral resource and must not be converted to a mineral reserve. However, it is reasonably expected that the majority of inferred mineral resources could be upgraded to indicated mineral resources with continued exploration. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource is economically or legally mineable. Disclosure of “contained ounces” in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves” by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures.
Canadian standards, including the CIM Definition Standards and NI 43-101, differ significantly from standards in the SEC Industry Guide 7. Effective February 25, 2019, the SEC adopted new mining disclosure rules under subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “SEC Modernization Rules”), with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. The SEC Modernization Rules replace the historical property disclosure requirements included in SEC Industry Guide 7. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources”. Information regarding mineral resources contained or referenced in this video may not be comparable to similar information made public by companies that report according to U.S. standards. While the SEC Modernization Rules are purported to be “substantially similar” to the CIM Definition Standards, readers are cautioned that there are differences between the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definitions Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral resources that the Company may report as “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources” under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules.
Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
