Argentum Retains Investor Relations Advisors
February 24, 2012: Vancouver, B.C.: Argentum Silver Corp. ("Argentum" or the "Company") announces that it has retained the services of AJF Consultants Ltd. ("AJF") to provide investor relations and shareholder communications services with a focus on retail distribution.
AJF assists public companies with communication, marketing experience and brand awareness in addition to developing and initiating strategies to gain increased exposure to investors. The company is owned and managed by Allan and Janice Feldman, who stated "We are excited to include a silver company exploring in Mexico in our client portfolio. Our investor base will be excited by the opportunity to learn about and invest in a company like Argentum that is well-funded, with good management and exciting projects."
The service agreement with AJF will have an initial term of 12 months and will pay AJF a monthly consulting fee of $5,000. The service agreement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Following a detailed evaluation of its Oaxacan claims package, Argentum has determined that the prospective area for exploration on its Silacayoapan property is located within the core of the claim. To minimize unnecessary yearly tax expenditures, Argentum has made a formal request to Arco Resources Corp. ("Arco"), the optionor of its land package in Oaxaca, Mexico, to reduce the size of the Silacayoapan claim from 20,788 hectares to 3,475 hectares. Argentum has also provided notice that it wishes to remove the claims comprising the Nino Perdido property from the Company's option agreement with Arco.
Argentum's land team in Oaxaca has also pursued an agreement with the community neighboring its Lachiguiri Project to access the property for drilling. The community has requested the matter be readdressed at a later date. The Company will focus on the exploration program at its Coyote Project as well as a program on the Silacayoapan property while awaiting word from the community at Lachiguiri.
