White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV:WHM) ("White Metal" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing exploration program (see Company news release 22 October 2020) on the Taranis (Okohongo) Copper-Silver Project (the "Project" or "Property"), located in northwestern Namibia and defined by Exclusive Prospecting Licence ("EPL") 7071. The Project includes the historical Okohongo Copper-Silver Deposit (the "Okohongo").

Michael Stares, President & CEO of the Company, stated, "We are pleased to see progress being made on the 2020-2021 exploration program on the Taranis Property, despite the challenges of the worldwide pandemic. The primary target is the area of the Okohongo Copper-Silver Deposit, where a historical mineral resource estimate was reported in 2011. In addition to RC drilling within the deposit area, we will also be conducting reconnaissance geological mapping and prospecting over the entire EPL, including follow up on a number of promising historical copper showings."

To date, the Company has completed re-logging of historical RC chip samples and re-sampling (quarter core) of four diamond drill hole cores from within the area of the historical Okohongo mineral resource estimate. Prospecting and regional geological mapping and sampling is planned to begin in early January 2021. An RC drilling program is planned to begin in January 2021, comprising a minimum of 3,000 m in 24 holes. The drilling results will be used to prepare a current mineral resource estimate over the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit, compliant with National Instrument 43-101.

The Taranis Property (aka Okohongo), which covers about 19,850 ha, includes the historical Okohongo Copper-Silver Deposit which has been outlined by historical drilling, showing that it extends over 600 metres in strike length, 400 metres down-dip, and is open in all directions (see INV Metals news release dated August 3, 2011). The Okohongo, situated within the Kaoko Belt of northwest Namibia about 700 km northwest of Windhoek, is hosted by metasedimentary stratigraphy and is considered to be analogous with the stratiform sediment-hosted Central African Copperbelt deposits of Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This deposit contains historical Inferred Mineral Resources of 10.2 million tonnes grading 1.12% Cu and 17.75 g/t Ag, using a 0.3% Cu cut-off (Table 1; INV Metals Inc. NI 43-101 Technical Report, Effective Date March 31, 2011).
