Peter Hawley, Chairman, CEO reports; A total of 19 specific areas were mapped and prospected during the 2021 field campaign. We previously reported our findings on the Lady Luck occurrence at the southern end of the Neil property, followed by the Mac; 8A, Harris, 2a and 2b, the Creek, South Keays and Belcher Creek. We now turn our attention to the Magnum Mine copper deposit.” See Figure 2 below.

The mineralization of the Magnum deposit consists of varying proportions of ankerite, quartz, chalcopyrite and pyrite, in partially replaced remnants of the sedimentary host rock. To date, a total of ten veins have been identified, ranging in width from less than 3 feet (0.9 meters) to 25 feet (7.6 meters), showing lateral and depth continuity.. The main developed veins are almost vertical. See photo 1 below.
The Magnum Vein trend is also defined by a versatile time-domain electromagnetic (VTEM) geophysical signature. See Figure 3 below.

As part of the 2021 exploration, 5 selected areas were surveyed by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). A photogrammetric survey was completed over the Harris, Eagle, Neil and Magnum veins by Drone North, see Figure 4 above for the Magnum survey area.
The purpose of the UAV photogrammetry surveys was to:
(i) Generate high resolution photogrammetric datasets for the target vein to better understand bedrock controls on copper mineralization.
(ii) Generate high-resolution digital terrain models (DTMs) to aid in 3D modeling of targets.
(iii) Generate reference images to record the current state of surface disturbances at sites that will be actively explored in the coming years.
The equipment used to perform the UAV photogrammetry surveys consisted of a 20-megapixel DJI Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 optical camera drone with both a mechanical shutter and an upgraded L1/L2 Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver. A Sunnav G10 multi-frequency base station was configured to allow PPK corrections of UAV mobile receiver location information. See Figure 5 below.

Ground control point (GCP) data was acquired during the survey. Twenty-five field-following missions were carried out to survey the Magnum target with a total of 5,419 photographs acquired during the survey, and the final GSD (resolution) was 4.55 cm for the orthomosaic and 18.2 cm for the digital surface model (DSM).

Data products generated include 3-23 cm resolution color orthophoto mosaics, digital surface models (DSM) and digital terrain models (DTM). Shading models were also generated for
each target area. Precision ground control point data (1-3 cm) was also acquired at the time of the UAV survey. See Figures 7, 8 below.

The data generated was used for field targeting of visual occurrences of copper on the color orthophoto due to the 3cm resolution which led to the field examination of the mineralized unit at the sampling of the Magnum vein where a total of 20 samples were first taken. pass the assessment.

Additionally, using various filter parameters, the UAV drone survey area was assessed for silica occurrences such as the quartz that hosts the Magnum deposit. This survey showed very strong silica anomalies on the other side of the mountain that hosts the Magnum deposit and this will be followed up in the 2022 field season.

Using the results of the data collected by the UAV drone during the 2021 field season, the field team will further sample and map the Magnum deposit in addition to traversing the southeast side of the hill to investigate the silica anomalies.
An additional press release on sampling and results from the Magnum deposit will be released in the coming weeks.
