Collective Mining Expands its Recent Discovery at the Donut Target with Broad Intercepts from Near Surface Including 108 Metres @ 1.13 g/t Gold Equivalent

Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) ("Collective" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results for the final five diamond drill holes completed in late 2021 at the Donut Target ("Donut") as part of its maiden drill program at the Guayabales project ("Guayabales"), located in Caldas, Colombia. The Company presently has four diamond drill rigs operating at Guayabales and plans to complete a minimum of 20,000 metres of drilling in 2022. The 2022 program will focus on expanding upon the recently announced Olympus Central discovery hole of 302 metres @ 1.11 gt gold equivalent while also testing for the first time a suite of new targets including but not limited to Victory East, Victory West, Olympus South and Apollo.

Highlights (See Table 1 and Figures 1 – 2)

  • Five additional diamond drill holes have expanded Donut to the southwest, northeast and northwest and continue to outline a drill defined mineralized zone that begins at surface and extends vertically for at least 250 metres where it remains open for further expansion.
  • All five drill holes being reported herein have intercepted broad and continuous mineralization hosted predominately in breccia and consisting primarily of gold and silver with lesser amounts of copper and molybdenum as follows:
    • Drilled steeply to the north-north-east in an area with no prior drilling, DOC-6 intercepted 151 metres @ 0.74 g/t gold equivalent from 58 metres depth including 30 metres @ 1 g/t gold equivalent from 58 metres down hole;
    • Drilled steeply to the north-east in an area with no prior drilling, DOC-7 intercepted 142 metres @ 0.63 g/t gold equivalent from 13 metres depth;
    • DOC-8 was drilled to the north to undercut DOC-2 (see press release dated October 18, 2021) and intercepted 108 metres @ 1.13 g/t gold equivalent from 18 metres depth , including 2.5 metres @ 15 g/t gold equivalent from 28 metres depth;
    • DOC-9 was drilled at a shallow angle to the southwest in an area with no prior drilling and intercepted 69 metres @ 1.39 g/t gold equivalent from 5.4 metres depth; and
    • DOC-10 was drilled steeply to the northwest between DOC-2 and DOC-1 and intercepted 176 metres @ 0.84 g/t gold equivalent from 53 metres depth including 46 metres @ 1.10 g/t gold equivalent from 53 metres depth.
  • Donut is located at the northeast end of a southwest trending zone of outcropping breccia targets which, to date, have been traced to the southwest for 550 metres along strike and remains open for further expansion to the southwest.
  • As announced previously (see press release dated November 15, 2021), porphyry mineralization was encountered in drill hole DOC-5 and given that banded quartz-magnetite veins cutting diorite porphyry at depth and as common clasts in breccia at shallower levels have been observed in drilling to date, the Company believes there is excellent potential to discover a large porphyry system nearby to the Donut discovery. As a result, deep penetrating geophysics are planned for the near term with follow up drilling to commence upon interpretation of the results.

"Over the course of the past year, Collective has drilled five grassroots generated targets and made three significant new discoveries, two of which are at the Guayabales project and one at the San Antonio project. In my career, I have never been involved in projects as prospective as our current portfolio. We plan on remaining aggressive for the balance of 2022 and will focus on expanding the mineralization at Olympus Central, where we recently drilled the discovery hole yielding 302 metres from near surface at 1.11 g/t gold equivalent. Additionally, over the next two weeks we will begin drilling at the Apollo target, which is characterized by coincidental copper and molybdenum soil anomalies blanketing outcropping porphyry related veins and breccias. By the middle of Q2, 2022 maiden drill programs will begin at the Victory East and Victory West targets, both of which are large scale copper and gold porphyry targets. Finally, drill programs to test the high-grade vein system at Olympus South and the porphyry potential at Donut will commence in early Q3, 2022," commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Management, insiders and close family and friends own approximately 40% of the outstanding shares of the Company and as a result are fully aligned with shareholders. Collective currently holds an option to earn up to a 100% interest in two projects located in Colombia. As a result of an aggressive exploration program on both the Guayabales and San Antonio projects a total of twelve major targets have been defined. The Company is fortuitous to have made significant grass root discoveries on both projects with near surface discovery holes at the Guayabales project yielding 302 metres 1.11 g/t AuEq at the Olympus target and 104 metres @ 1.3 g/t AuEq at the Donut target. At the San Antonio project, the Company intersected from surface 710 metres @ 0.53 AuEq. ( See press releases dated October 18 th and 27 th , 2021 and March 15, 2022 for AuEq calculations.)

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at InTheMoneyStocks.com, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're $60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
