VANCOUVER, B.C. April 14, 2022 – NINE MILE METALS LTD. (CSE:NINE, OTCQB:STVGF, FSE:KQ9) (the “Company” or “Nine Mile”) is pleased to announce the Company’s initial Phase 1 drill program at its flagship Nine Mile Brook VMS Project (see Figure 1) in the world-famous Bathurst Mining Camp (“BMC”), in New Brunswick Canada. The Company has received all Drill and Forestry Permits from the New Brunswick Department of Energy and Mines for the Phase 1 drill program.

The Company has engaged a very experienced VMS drill crew from Lantech Drilling, based in Dieppe, New Brunswick. Utilizing an environmentally friendly track mounted drill rig (see Figure 2), the Phase 1 drill program will consist of 4 to 6 drill holes targeting the mineralized horizon at the southern section of the Nine Mile Brook Property. Last year’s work program analysis defined two zones of mineralization at the southern area of Nine Mile Brook Property generated by our geophysical partner, EarthEX Geophysical Solutions (“EarthEX”). The Company’s Phase 1 drill program will test both targets. Upon completion of this Phase 1 drill program, the drill holes will be capped to facilitate Borehole Electro-Magnetic Surveying (“BHEM”) which identifies subsurface conductors along strike and at depth providing a 3D model of the mineralization. The results identified in the BHEM program will be tested in Phase 2 along with the forthcoming 3D AI Analysis that EarthEX Geophysical Solutions is currently processing.

“We look forward to commencing the Phase 1 drill program on the Nine Mile Brook VMS Project and working with EarthEX to expand the known mineralization and define additional, satellite source deposits in this highly prospective portion of the Bathurst Mining Camp. We anxiously await the new analysis EarthEX is currently processing for the Phase 2 drill program defining the strong conductor contact targets along the Spruce Lake formation host rocks for the source deposit. This part of the Bathurst Mining Camp has been under explored and with this new proprietary cutting-edge technology and AI processing, I am confident this area of the BMC will identify and discover further VMS High Grade economic deposits. We continue at Nine Mile Metals to drive shareholder value and growth of the Company’s economic asset base”, stated Patrick J Cruickshank, MBA – Director.
