21C Metals Inc. (CSE: BULL) is pleased to announce that it has commenced exploration at the East Bull Palladium project.
The East Bull Palladium project allows 21C Metals to play a part in the transition from combustion engines to the electric vehicles. Palladium is the active component of catalytic convertors and therefore key to low emission combustion engines. The price of Palladium has recently reached an all-time high. Automobile manufacturers are building hybrid combustion-electric vehicles as the transition to pure electric vehicles.
The East Bull property hosts a NI 43-101 compliant resource of >500,000 of Palladium equivalent ounces. The vendor of the property had completed three diamond drill holes to duplicate previous drilling from the late 1990’s early 2000’s.
The program successfully duplicated 2 of the three holes it attempted to twin. Hole EB17-02 intersected a weak zone but the main target was impacted by strong shearing and parallel dikes that seemed to dislocate the main mineralization.

**EB17-03 by Pavey Ark duplicates ME99-16 by Mustang Minerals Corp.
The current exploration program of line cutting and detailed mapping will focus on laying a base for diamond drilling to increase the resource. Presently the resource has been drilled to <150 metres and is open for expansion in all directions.
21C Metals is focussed on the metals of the future with a the significant Tisova Cobalt-Copper-Gold project in the Czech Republic and Germany and the East Bull Palladium Project 90 kilometres from Sudbury, Ontario.
