VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deer Horn Capital Inc. (CSE:DHC) (the “Company” or “Deer Horn”), reports that management has received the final updated Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for the Company’s Deer Horn polymetallic property in north-central British Columbia. The PEA is now under review by management and the Company’s Qualified Person (QP) under NI 43-101 regulations before presenting to Deer Horn shareholders and the public. The Company expects to release the full report, along with a summary of key findings, sometime next week.

“The completion of this latest PEA marks an important step forward for our shareholders,” said Deer Horn President and CEO Tyrone Docherty. “It brings the previous PEA, which was completed in 2013, in line with current metals prices, and it provides key information as we work with our QP to plan the next phase of exploration on the property.”

The Deer Horn polymetallic property is located 35 kilometers south of Imperial Metals’ Huckleberry Mine and approximately 110 kilometers southwest of Houston, BC. Deer Horn covers more than 51 square kilometers and contains one of the few known resources of silver-gold-tellurium that has been NI 43-101 certified. Exploration has also produced significant discoveries of copper, tungsten, bismuth and molybdenum.
