Liberty Silver Corp. Amends Letter of Intent to Acquire Bunker Hill Mine

May 23, 2017 – Toronto, Ontario. Liberty Silver Corp. (“Liberty” or the
“Company”) (CSE: LSL) is pleased to announce that, following discussions
with Placer Mining Corp. (“Placer” or the “Vendor”), the current owner of
the Bunker Hill Mine, that have occurred over the last several days, Placer
and Liberty have elected to undertake several modifications to the Letter of
Intent that exists between the Parties.
Pursuant to these amendments, the parties have agreed, among other things,
that, in consideration of the use of the Russell Tunnel, Liberty will
indemnify the vendor and its officers, agents and employees from any
liabilities arising out of Liberty’s repair and use of the Russell Tunnel, the
connected ramp system and access to the Newgard area and other tunnels
connected to the Russell Tunnel that will be accessed by Liberty’s due
diligence programs. Liberty also agrees to provide certain evidence of
insurance coverage and workmen’s compensation insurance compliance
from its principal contractor, who is currently working at the Russell Tunnel.
Also, in consideration of Liberty’s continuing to make public news releases
and public filings regarding agreements, progress and timelines with respect
to due diligence and progress toward closing the Bunker Hill Mine purchase,
Liberty agrees to indemnify the Vendor and its officers, agents and
employees from any liabilities arising out of the filing or dissemination of
news releases, reports and other market information with respect to the
Bunker Hill proposed transaction, including any alleged negligence of the
vendor with respect to dissemination of information. In this regard, Liberty
agrees to notify Placer of any future news releases to enable Placer to
provide comments.
The closing date for the sale is extended to July 28, 2017 to enable the
parties to complete necessary agreements and plans with applicable United
States government agencies. Additionally, either party can request a further
extension of 30 days if requested. Liberty agrees to make a partial payment
of US$100,000 to be credited toward the purchase price (and an additional
US$100,000 if closing is extended for an additional 30 days) and Placer
agrees to provide, within a defined period, certain financial and corporate
information specified by the terms of the Letter of Intent. The Vendor also
agrees to provide its comments and proposed changes to the definitive
purchase agreement by June 10, 2017 with both parties acknowledging that
further changes to the definitive agreement may result from due diligence,
discovery, and results of upcoming meetings with applicable United States
governmental agencies. Finally, the vendor has retracted certain notices of
default that have been addressed by the recent amendments.
On completion of the sale, the acquisition of the Bunker Hill Mine Complex
will include all current and historic data relating to the Bunker Hill Mine
Complex (such as drill logs, reports, maps and similar information located at
the mine site or at any other location); all mining rights and claims, surface
rights, easements, existing infrastructure at Milo Gulch; all equipment and
infrastructure located anywhere underground at the Bunker Hill Mine
Complex; and the majority of machinery and buildings at the Kellogg
Tunnel portal level excluding the machine shop building and milling
equipment located within the building. Also excluded are the historic
Caledonia Mine (East Hanging Wall area), the Crystal Vug Stope, and a
group of patented mining claims located east of the Bunker Hill, all of which
will remain the property of Placer Mining Corp.
Initial discovery and development of the property began in 1885, and from
that time until the mine closed in 1981 it produced over 35.8 million tons of
ore at an average mined grade of 8.76% lead, 4.52 ounces per ton silver, and
3.67% zinc (Bunker Limited Partnership,1985). Throughout the long history
of the mine, there were over 40 different orebodies discovered and mined,
primarily consisting of Zinc-Lead-Silver mineralization. The Bunker Hill
and Sullivan Mining Company had a strong history of regular dividend
payments to shareholders from the time the Company went public in 1905
until it was acquired in a hostile takeover by Gulf Resources in 1968. When
the mine first closed in 1981, it was estimated to still contain significant
resources (Bunker Limited Partnership, 1985).
T he Mine and Smelter Complex were closed in 1981 when Gulf Resources
was not able to continue to comply with new regulatory structures brought
on by the passage of environmental statutes and as then enforced by the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).The Bunker Hill Lead Smelter,
Electrolytic Zinc Plant and historic milling facilities were demolished about
25 years ago, and the area became part of the “National Priority List” for cleanup
under EPA regulations, thereby pausing development of the Bunker Hill Mine.
The Company has been in contact with government officials who have expressed
strong support and cooperation for the Company efforts.

The acquisition price, as described in the Letter of Intent, is a total of
US$30,000,000. The initial US$15,000,000 of the total acquisition price
will be paid annually over the course of 5 years from the closing date, of
which US$150,000 has been paid to date pursuant to the Letter of Intent;
US$3,350,000 will become due by the closing date; US$3,500,000 is due on
the first anniversary of the closing date; US$3,000,000 on the second
anniversary; US$2,000,000 on the third and fourth anniversaries; and
US$1,000,000 on the fifth anniversary.

The balance of US$15,000,000 will become due in 15 equal installments
beginning upon the anniversary of the closing date in 2023 and on each
anniversary of the closing date thereafter. The Letter of Intent provides for
conditions under which the fifteen equal payments may be accelerated and
paid partly in shares based on prevailing market prices and share volumes.
In addition, a net smelter return royalty with an aggregate maximum capped
payment of US$60,000,000 will be granted at a rate of 2% for the first
US$15,000,000; 1% for the next US$15,000,000; and 0.5% for the
remaining US$30,000,000. The Company has, to date, made payments
totalling US$280,000 with respect to certain property carrying costs and
which are not counted toward the purchase price. Additionally, for two
years after the closing, the Company will hire three members of Placer’s
current staff.
Further announcements will be made from time to time on the status of the
acquisition of the Bunker Hill Mine Complex. Technical information in this
press release was reviewed and approved by James Baughman, P.Geo., a
consultant to Liberty, and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-
