Zach Flood , President and CEO of Kenorland Minerals, states, " Our most recent drilling efforts at Regnault have delivered outstanding results as we continue to demonstrate scale, grade and continuity along multiple mineralized structures. The known extent of the system has grown with each program and our understanding of the controls on mineralization are developing rapidly. We look forward to announcing the remaining results in the near future as well as preparing the next phase of drilling scheduled to commence in January ."

Discussion of Results

The 17,792 meter drill program was designed to systematically step-out along strike and down dip of the known structures (R1, R2 East, and R2 West Trends) to gain better understanding of the structural and lithological controls on gold mineralization, as well as explore for other mineralized structures within the Regnault gold system. Significant results along the R1 Trend continue to indicate multiple significant gold bearing structures. Holes 21RDD056A, which stepped out approximately 100m to the east of 21RDD024 ( 5.72m at 90.56 g/t Au – see press release dated May 26, 2021 ) returned 15.40m at 17.96 g/t Au. Hole 21RDD060 stepped out approximately 60m further to the east beyond 21RDD056A and intersected 3.00m at 32.21 g/t Au. Hole 21RDD074 drilled across the R1 structure approximately 270m to the west of 21RDD024 and intersected 3.45m at 17.53 g/t Au incl. 0.50m at 114.60 g/t Au. Drilling along the R1 Trend was completed at approximately 50-meter centers and extended the known presence of shear-hosted mineralization along 750m of strike length and to depths of 275m below surface. The R1 Trend remains open along strike and at depth.

Gold mineralization along the R1 Trend is associated with generally E-W trending and steeply north-dipping shear zones. Mineralized structures transect both the multiphase Regnault intrusive complex and surrounding volcanic rocks and are defined by zones of moderate-strong strain, biotite-calcite ± silica-chlorite alteration and disseminated pyrite (locally up to 3-10%). High grade intercepts are characteristically shear-hosted, laminated quartz-carbonate-pyrite veins, often haloed by variably deformed extensional stockwork quartz veining locally containing up to 20% pyrite along with trace chalcopyrite and occasional Au ± Ag tellurides and visible gold.

Drilling completed on the R2 Trend has identified gold mineralization along 950m of strike length trending east-northeast and to depths of 350m below surface. High grade gold has been intersected in stacked, shallow north dipping extensional type quartz veins (dominant style for R2 West), and E-W trending, steeply north-dipping shear hosted quartz-carbonate veins (the dominant style of mineralization for R2 East and similar in nature to the R1 Trend). The R2 trend also remains open along strike and down dip.

At R2 West, stepping out on approximately 50-meter centers, drilling demonstrated the presence of several high grade, stacked quartz veins. Hole 21RDD077 drilled approximately 50m to the west of 20RDD002 ( 0.77m at 14.60 g/t Au and 3.75m at 16.06 g/t Au - see press release dated July 29, 2020 ) and returned intercepts of 2.73m at 15.34 g/t Au and 7.50m at 3.06 g/t Au. Hole 21RDD082A drilled approximately 50m to the east of 20RDD002 and returned 1.60m at 28.34 g/t Au, 1.23m at 13.90 g/t Au, 1.19m at 14.12 g/t Au, and 2.81m at 5.81 g/t Au.

The R2 East shear zone is located along the northern margin of R2 West and trends eastward where shearing intersects the volcanic – diorite contact resulting in rheological controlled zones of dilation and vein formation. In this target area drilling followed up on the previous intercept of 20RDD015 ( 4.93m at 9.59 g/t Au see press release July 29, 2020 ). Significant high-grade results at R2 East include 21RDD054, which drilled 50m to the east and 190m down dip of 20RDD015, intersecting 1.01m at 26.33 g/t Au. Broad intervals of mineralization were also encountered, such as 21RDD063, which drilled 160m to the east of 20RDD015 and intersected several mineralized zones including 22.00m at 0.73 g/t Au.

Francis MacDonald , Executive Vice President of Exploration commented, "The summer 2021 Regnault drill program was designed to step-out aggressively from previous intersects along the R1 and R2 vein corridors, down to a vertical depth of approximately 250-350 meters, targeting new mineralized zones within the Regnault gold system. We are very impressed with the exceptional grades over considerable widths from this campaign as well as the strike length which is developing along these structures. The R1 corridor remains open in both directions, and with significant down-dip potential, as the vertical extent has only been tested to 275m depth. Importantly, wider zones of high grade mineralisation are beginning to take shape within the R1 structural corridor which will drive targeting for the upcoming Q1 2022 drill campaign. We also recognize R2 as a very significant target as our understanding of the geometry of shear and extensional veins continues to develop.  We look forward to the remainder of the results from outstanding holes, many of which have tested new areas within the Regnault gold system with the goal of establishing new gold-bearing structures.

To date a total of 34,206m has been drilled at Regnault including the initial discovery drill program in early 2020. Following the recently concluded program, which results are partially reported herein, planning has begun for a winter drill program commencing in January 2022 . The upcoming program will conclude the fiscal 2021 budget approved by the Joint Venture in May 2021 . The project is currently operated by Kenorland Minerals Ltd. and exploration is co-funded with joint venture partner, Sumitomo Metal Mining Canada Ltd.

Mr. Jan Wozniewski, B. Sc., P. Geo., OGQ (#2239) is the "Qualified Person" under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information in this press release.

About the Frotet Project

The Frotet Project was first identified by Kenorland in 2017 after completing a regional prospectivity study over the Abitibi and Frotet-Evans Greenstone Belts of Quebec . The initial 55,921 ha property was acquired through map staking in March, 2017 and optioned to Sumitomo Metal Mining Canada Ltd. ("SMMCL"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Metal Mining Co., Ltd. in April, 2018. Two years of property-wide systematic till sampling led to a maiden drill program in 2020 which resulted in a significant grassroots discovery at the prospect now named Regnault. The project is currently under Joint Venture agreement between SMMCL and Kenorland Minerals Ltd., with interests being held at 80% and 20% respectively. Under the Joint Venture, exploration is funded pro-rata and Kenorland is presently the operator of the project.  Any party which does not contribute and is diluted below a 10% interest, converts its interest to an 2% uncapped net smelter royalty.

Kenorland Minerals Reports Geochemical Results at the Chebistuan Project and Provides Exploration Update

Logo (CNW Group/Kenorland Minerals Ltd.)

Kenorland Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KLD) (OTCQX: NWRCF) (FSE: 3WQ0) (" Kenorland " or " the Company ") is pleased to report results from its recently completed Phase 2 follow-up geochemical survey at the Chebistuan Project (the "Project" ), located in the northern Abitibi greenstone belt of Quebec and held under an exploration agreement with Newmont Corporation. The company further announces additional planned exploration including detailed prospecting and geophysical surveys at one of the priority target areas within the Chebistuan Project.

Program Highlights

The Phase 2 geochemical survey followed up on multiple anomalous areas of interest defined by the initial regional program (Phase 1) in 2020. A total of 2,121 soil samples were collected for geochemical analysis and 225 till samples collected for gold grain analysis.  The results of the Phase 1 and Phase 2 surveys have outlined multiple gold and pathfinder element anomalies within the Deux Orignaux AOI (Figure  1), which will be further advanced with upcoming prospecting and detailed geophysical surveys, including airborne magnetics, radiometrics and induced polarization (IP), in preparation for drill targeting.

Figure 1. Combined Phase 1 and 2 geochemical survey results showing soil (till substrate) Au ppb (CNW Group/Kenorland Minerals Ltd.)

Zach Flood , President and CEO, states, "This is another step forward and a significant development in the systematic exploration of the Chebistuan Project, one of the largest contiguous land packages in Quebec.  We've effectively screened over 170,000 hectares of ground in just over a year and we now have discrete target areas which will see detailed follow-up exploration, including prospecting and geophysical surveys this fall.  We look forward to further advancing these targets with support from Newmont Corporation."

Deux Orignaux AOI

Within the Deux Originaux AOI are several target areas spatially associated with the contact between a clastic sedimentary basin (Opemiska Group) and volcanic rocks along a major structural bifurcation in the geometry of the greenstone belt. Multiple second-order structures at oblique angles to the 1 st order basin-bounding structure form "horse-tail splay" structural patterns through the AOI, which is prospective for orogenic gold deposits (Figure 2). A helicopter-borne magnetic survey and an IP survey are planned over the Deux Originaux AOI, as well as follow-up prospecting, to further vector in towards drill targets.

Figure 2. Deux Orignaux AOI (CNW Group/Kenorland Minerals Ltd.)

QA/QC and Sampling Protocols

Soil samples were collected from the B-horizon of soil developed on a till substrate.  Approximately 1 kilogram of material was collected from each sample site and shipped to Bureau Veritas ("BV") in Timmins, Ontario for preparation.  Samples were prepared for analysis according to BV method SS230; sieve individual samples to 230 mesh (-63 microns). Samples were analysed at BV in Vancouver, British Columbia with BV method AQ252_EXT; 30 grams of material digested in aqua regia with an ICP-MS finish.

About the Chebistuan Project

The Project consists of 3,000 claims (161,025 ha) owned 100% by Kenorland. The property covers approximately 100 kilometers of a major east-west trending deformation zone which may represent the continuation of the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone, hosting major gold deposits such as Detour Lake (Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd.) and Fenelon (Wallbridge Mining Company Ltd.).  The Chibougamau and Chapais mining camps, which have produced over 6.5 Moz of gold and 1.6 billion pounds of copper historically, are located directly to the east of the Chebistuan property.  The project is largely covered with glacial till and is accessed by a large network of logging roads as well as helicopter.

Figure 3. Chebistuan Project Location (CNW Group/Kenorland Minerals Ltd.)

The Project is currently under an Exploration Agreement with Venture Option with Newmont Corporation. The Agreement provides an option for a two-phased exploration earn-in over 3 years, where Newmont can earn a 51% interest in the Chebistuan Project through certain exploration expenditures and cash payments to Kenorland.  The initial phase of the agreement consists of a property- wide geochemical sampling program, target definition and testing.  Newmont then has the option to earn an additional 29% interest for a cumulative 80% interest (phase two earn-in) in the Chebistuan Project over 6 years by completing a 43-101 compliant pre-feasibility study on a minimum 1.5 Moz Au resource as well as meeting certain cash payments to Kenorland.  The parties may continue to explore and develop the property through an 80% Newmont, 20% Kenorland joint venture or, in the case of a construction decision, Kenorland can elect for Newmont to finance its portion of mine development cost.  If Newmont elects not to continue with the phase two earn in, then ownership interest in the project will switch to 51% Kenorland and 49% Newmont.

Kenorland Minerals Reports Geochemical Results at the Chicobi Project and Provides Exploration Update

Kenorland Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KLD) (OTCQX: NWRCF) (FSE: 3WQ0) (" Kenorland " or " the Company ") is pleased to report geochemical results from its third phase of sonic 'drill-for-till' geochemical sampling program at the Chicobi Project (the "Project" ),  located in the Abitibi greenstone belt of Quebec and held under an earn-in option to joint venture agreement with Sumitomo Metal Mining Canada Limited (SMMCL).  The company is further pleased to announce the commencement of detailed geophysical surveys in preparation for diamond drill targeting, tentatively scheduled for Q1 2022.

Kenorland, along with SMMCL, has been exploring the Chicobi Project since 2019 using overburden drilling methods to sample glacial till and top of bedrock below the layer of glaciolacustrine clay that obscures vast areas of the northern Abitibi greenstone belt. To date, three phases of sonic drilling, totaling 441 drill holes have been completed across the Project producing  ~1,500 samples for gold grain counts, heavy mineral concentrate assays, and till geochemistry assays.  These drill campaigns have systematically screened the property from the regional scale, covering over 50,000 hectares, down to a coherent gold and multi-element till anomaly (Target B) of approximately 1.5km x 3km in extent.
