VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Bull Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: SVBL, TSX: SVB) (“Silver Bull”) announced today that it has filed a Notice of Intent to initiate a legacy North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) claim under Annex 14-C of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement to recover economic damages resulting from the illegal blockade of its Sierra Mojada project. Silver Bull has been unable to access the project since the illegal blockade commenced in September 2019. Despite numerous demands and requests for action by the company, Mexican governmental agencies have allowed this unlawful behaviour to continue and, as such, failed to protect Silver Bull’s investment.
Silver Bull will be seeking to recover no less than US$178 million in damages that it has suffered as a result of Mexico’s breach of its NAFTA obligations.
The Notice of Intent was filed with Mexico’s Directorate General of Foreign Investment (Dirección General de Inversión Extranjera).
On behalf of the Board of Directors
