CEO James Tworek also Provides an Update on Peru Work Plan

VANCOUVER, BC - T heNewswire - June 1, 2023 Element 79 Gold Corp. (CSE:ELEM) (OTC:ELMGF)(FSE: 7YS) (" Element 79 Gold ", the " Company ") proudly announces that, further to an auction held on May 17, 2023, the Company submitted the winning bid for the coveted area covering the Roxana vein and referred to as Lucero del Sur 28 located strategically just east of the high-grade Lucero gold-silver project (Figure 1) which has recently returned up to 402 gt gold, and 8,464 gt silver in underground chip sampling (see news release April 27, 2023 ).

"This strategic move allows us to further strengthen our foothold in the area while continuing to validate the region's abundant resources," said James Tworek, President and CEO. "The Roxana vein boasts a significant historical potential, and we aim to build upon these results while leveraging our resources in the region."

Lucero del Sur 28

Encompassing 1,200 hectares, the Lucero del Sur 28 property is located immediately to the east of the high-grade Lucero gold-silver project (Figure 1.) in the Shila range of southern Peru.

Roxana Vein

Historical information obtained from Buenaventura indicates the Roxana vein outcrops over a strike length of approximately 100m, with varying widths between 0.20 and 0.50 meters. The vein is dominated by white to hyaline quartz) and altered rock clasts, with lesser amounts limonite patinas, hematite, pyrite, and jarosite. Certain sections feature lenses with argentiferous galena, chalcopyrite, malachite, and azurite. Informal workers have worked at strike lengths of approximately 50m and depth of 5m, extracting over 12,000 tonnes of ore yielding grades of 12.5 g/t Au and 1.2 oz/t Ag.

Tocracancha Prospect

Previously work on this prospect near the Roxana vein identified several west-northwest trending veins exhibiting strike lengths from 200 meters to nearly 1,200 meters with widths spanning from 0.5 to 2.0 meters. The observed mineralogy predominantly consists of predominantly hyaline quartz, gray silica microveins, baryte, and calcite, with traces of galena, sphalerite, as well as oxides of iron and manganese.

"Given the recent high-grade results on the Lucero project we jumped at the opportunity to acquire the nearby Lucero de Sur 28 property which hosts significant known at surface mineralization," quoted James Tworek, Element79 Gold Corp CEO.  "While our current work plans are focused on proving up the main veins of the Lucero project's past producing Shila Mine, we also intend to explore this new land package in the near term.
