Midnight Sun Mining Corp. (TSXV: MMA) (OTCQB: MDNGF) (the "Company" or "Midnight Sun") is pleased to report all preparations have been completed and drilling has commenced on the Company's Solwezi Licences in Zambia.

Highlights

  • Four exploration targets and new concepts to be tested
  • Up to 4,500 metres of diamond drilling for up to 29 drill holes planned
  • Drill has arrived on site and set up at Mitu

Midnight Sun has contracted ATL Drilling Services Ltd. to perform the diamond drilling program previously announced by the Company (see the Company's news release dated June 14, 2022). This drill program was designed based on a review and re-interpretation of data generated by Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration Limited ("Rio Tinto") under the terms of a now terminated earn-in and joint venture agreement.

Dr. Simon Dorling, a specialist in sedimentary-hosted copper deposits, conducted the review, which included assessing the targeting rationale for the exploration work completed, evaluating the effectiveness of the work completed with regards to the proposed targeting concepts, and commenting on the remaining prospectivity of the Solwezi Licences. The review culminated in a set of drill targets that include both a new interpretation at known targets as well as newly defined targets.

Al Fabbro, President and CEO of Midnight Sun, stated, "Our Solwezi Licences are located in an area of world-class copper mines and have so far shown many of the hallmarks of such deposits. We are of the view that this revised technical approach will provide the Company with an opportunity to catapult the project to a new level."

Target Type and Location

Midnight Sun has committed to up to 4,500 metres of drilling at its Solwezi Licences for the 2022 field season. The drill meterage has been allocated to 4 targets (Figure 1) which include the known Mitu and Dumbwa prospects and two new targets at North 22 Zone and the Crunch Zone.

Mitu Cu-Co Prospect

The interpretation of high-resolution airborne magnetics shows multiple structures cross cutting the Solwezi Dome margin and the overlying Copperbelt sediment succession. The displacement occurs primarily along northeast trending structures which are key to mineralisation at the nearby Kansanshi Mine, owned by First Quantum Minerals. A reassessment of drill cores confirms a structural overprint on stratiform mineralisation and provides justification to revisit existing prospects including the proposal of structural corridors controlling mineralization around the Mitu area as intercepted in hole MDD-17-15 which measured 4.23% CuEq over 11.6 metres (see the Company's news release dated July 4, 2017). Five diamond drill holes have been planned for the Mitu area, targeting northeast-trending structures.

Dumbwa Cu Prospect

The Dumbwa Prospect is geologically located over basement rock with mineralisation which resembles that of Barrick Gold's Lumwana Mine, located approximately 60 kilometres west of Solwezi. The Dumbwa Prospect is marked by a north-south soil anomaly that extends for more than 20 kilometres. Previous drilling has intersected copper mineralisation but follow up drilling was unable to determine the source of this large anomaly. New magnetic data shows that the southern area of the Dumbwa anomaly is underlain by a major lineament and two east-west drill hole traverses totalling nine holes have been planned to target the source of the surface anomaly.

New Targets

22 Zone North & Crunch Zone

The 22 Zone North & Crunch Zonetargets are concepts derived from a combination of structural interpretation, subtle geochemical anomalism, and new insights into the genesis of mineralisation in the Zambian-Congo Copperbelt. The primary objective of this drilling is to assess the structural control on mineralisation in the area. The selected locations show apparent structural displacements of several hundreds of meters and are oriented in a favourable direction for fluid flow during compressional deformation, potentially leading to areas which trap and concentrate copper-bearing fluids.

Qualified Person: Richard Mazur, P.Geo., a Director of the Company anda Qualified Person under NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical data and contents of this release.

Investor Relations & Stock Option Grant

The Company has extended the investor relation services agreement with Kaye Wynn Consulting Inc. ("Kaye Wynn"). Kaye Wynn has been engaged for an additional one year period at a rate of $3,000 (plus GST) per month. The Company will also grant Kaye Wynn stock options to purchase 350,000 Common Shares at an exercise price of $0.165 per share for the term of their engagement. The stock options shall vest in accordance with TSX Venture Exchange policies relating to the granting and vesting of Investor Relations Stock Options. The options are granted pursuant to the Company's Stock Option Plan and the contract may be cancelled by either party with 30 days' notice.

Midnight Sun Announces Plans for Solwezi

Midnight Sun Mining Corp. (TSXV: MMA) (OTCQB: MDNGF) (the "Company" or "Midnight Sun") is pleased to report that Zambian-Congo Copperbelt expert, Dr. Simon Dorling, has agreed to accept and maintain an engagement with the Company. Simon has reviewed the data and results obtained by Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration ("Rio Tinto") on Midnight Sun's Solwezi Licences in Zambia and integrated this information with the data created by Midnight Sun and previous operators as well as incorporating recent research in the region to build a comprehensive database and inclusive interpretation of the structural-geological settings for mineralisation for future targeting.

Dr. Dorling's work has generated several new targets and justification to revisit existing prospects on the licences, including the proposal of structural corridors controlling mineralization around both the Mitu discovery area as well as hole MDD-17-15 on the Mitu Trend which measured 4.23% CuEq over 11.6 metres (see the Company's news release dated July 4, 2017). These corridors suggest a fault-control on mineralisation through re-mobilisation into late northeast-trending faults which leave these mineralized areas open along strike.

Pan Global Announces Drill Program on Eight Copper Targets in the Escacena Project, Spain

Pan Global Announces Drill Program on Eight Copper Targets in the Escacena Project, Spain

Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC Pink: PGNRF) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling is underway at the Hornitos and La Jarosa targets and that multiple new targets have been identified for drill testing at the Company's 100%-owned Escacena Project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, southern Spain.

Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO states: "Drilling has continued at Escacena with up to four drill rigs operating since January. The current plan includes testing at least six new targets in the Escacena Project in addition to continuing to expand the copper and tin mineralization at La Romana. We are excited at the potential to make further copper discoveries with drilling now initiated on several new targets, all within 5km of our near-surface La Romana copper-tin discovery. Ongoing exploration continues to generate multiple high-priority drill targets. Drilling is underway at the Hornitos and La Jarosa targets and is due to commence shortly at the Pilar, Zarcita and La Romana Deep targets. This is the first time most of the new targets will be drill tested. The fact that we are already seeing evidence of copper, lead and zinc mineralization in some of our first holes on new targets at Hornitos and La Jarosa is very encouraging with assay results awaited. Assay results are also pending for 14 drill holes at the La Romana discovery."
