Merida Minerals Holdings Inc. (TSXV: ESPN) ("Merida" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the results of initial core samples that have been re assayed from its Las Herrerais property, located near the village of Puebla de la Reina in Extremadura, Spain. The samples were procured from the secured facility that is controlled by the Geological and Mining Institute of Spain (Instituto Geologico y Minero de Espana or "IGME") located in Pennaroya, Extremadura. The core represents drilling carried out by IGME and Outukumpu on the Las Herreiras property previously.

The historical drilling was first carried out by IGME, which drilled 1,732.90 metres between 1984 and 1987.
IGME calculated a resource of 300,000 tonnes with grades of 1.6% Cu., 11% Zn., 1.2% Pb and 32 g/t Agi.

The property was subsequently acquired by Outukumpu, who carried out a drilling program between 1999 to 2001 of 4,86.75 meters.
Outukumpu calculated a resource of 500,000 tonnes at grades of 1.6% Cu., 11% Zn., 1.2% Pb and 32 g/t Agii.

Norman Brewster, Chief Executive Officer of Merida, stated: "We are extremely pleased with the results from the assays. They confirm our original thoughts and thesis when looking to acquire our first property in Spain. Firstly, that the grades for zinc and copper were excellent when carried out by IGME and Outukumpu, and Secondly, that with advances in technology over the last 20 years, the exploration potential may be greater than initially thought. Both are believed to be the case here." Copper grades range between 0.717% to 4.9% and average 1.6%; while Zinc grades range from 0.2% to 30% and average 11% as seen in Table 1. "This demonstrates the potential of the property, based on historic work carried out by IGME and Outukumpu alone, and we are optimistic that this is just the beginning of what the property holds and we look forward to initiating and continuing the previous drilling program. As well there are other targets that we have determined to be of high value, which may prove to be extensions of mineralization to the North and West. This very much fits in line with our initial plans to create a new copper zinc producer in Spain. We look forward to initiating our 2022 and 2023 work programs, in line with the 3 year plan we have presented to the mining authorities in Extremadura," commented Mr. Brewster.
