Following the extraordinary success of the drilling campaign with discovery hole WB21-02 returning 5.50 g/t over 50.15 meters and the new gold occurrences to the northeast, extending the continuous gold mineralised corridor for more than 275 meters along the O'Neil Gold Trend, Puma accelerated the execution of all the option agreements covering the Williams Brook Property.

The acquisition and the consolidation of the Williams Brook Gold project began in early 2020 and most of the properties were currently standing at the second year of the four (4) years option agreements. A total of 25 contiguous claim blocks were consolidated and constitute the entire land package of the Williams Brook Property. Puma decided to accelerate the payments to fulfill all the requirements under the various agreements and proceed with the titles transfers.

Consequently, Puma is the 100% registered holder of the minerals rights totalling 32,214 hectares. The exploration work conducted on the property is sufficient to cover the minimum work expenditures requirement with the New Brunswick government and to renew the properites for the next few years.

"The aggregation of all the Williams Brook Gold claim group through the buyout of the options will enable the Company to better allocate its exploration expenditures and ensure a more efficient utilization of financial and human resources to thoroughly and systematically explore for gold on our extremely well positioned properties in the new emerging gold district of New Brunswick," notes Marcel Robillard, President of Puma Exploration.

O'NEIL GOLD TREND (OGT)

The O'Neil Gold Trend (OGT) is a pervasive altered and brecciated rhyolite unit hosting significant gold showings and occurrences followed by trenching and drilling over a strike length of 700 meters. The geophysical signature of the OGT is expressed over 7km. The favourable unit (rhyolite) is similar and parallel to the structures hosting the "Williams 1" and "Williams 2" Gold Zones where previous operator drilled in 2008, 54.2 g/t Au over 2.8 meters and 1 g/t Au over 23 meters.

These trends are interpreted to be related to a major rifting in the New Brunswick Geological events and could represent a low sulphidation epithermal gold system. Along the OGT, the width of the rhyolite varies from 5 to 250 meters with an average apparent thickness of 150 meters.

The core-oriented maiden drill campaign was completed on August 20, 2021. It consisted of 18 holes for a total of 2,360 meters that tested a 200-meter segment of the 700-meter-long O'Neil Gold Trend (OGT). The assay results for the twelve (12) first holes are released and all holes intersected significant gold mineralisation including the discovery hole WB21-02 that cut 5.55 g/t Au over 50.15 meters from surface, including 9.88 g/t Au over 8.60 meters and 46.94 g/t Au over 3.85 meters.

It was a week of downward momentum for gold, which briefly made it past the US$1,800 per ounce mark, but had fallen to around US$1,780 by the time of this writing on Friday (December 3) afternoon.

The recently discovered COVID-19 variant Omicron has led to market turbulence, and gold has also been affected by comments made midway through the week by US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.

He indicated that the central bank may wrap up tapering sooner than expected, which could also bump up the timeline for rate hikes. Plans are expected to be discussed at the Fed's December meeting.
