Musk Metals Corp. ("Musk Metals" or the "Company") (CSE: MUSK) (OTC: GPMNF) (FSE: 1I3) is pleased to announce discoveries of Gold and Copper on its 100% owned Pluto properties, contiguous to Kenorland Minerals (KLD TSX.V) "Chebistuan" project, that is currently optioned to Newmont Mining, in the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt, Quebec.

Gold and Copper mineralization from 88 samples taken out of bedrock and subangular boulders throughout mineralized regional structures returned up to 1,070 ppm Cu and 0.405 g/t Au . The Kapunapotagen Shear Zone, hosting the Opemiska Cu/Au deposits to the east and the Lac Dolomieu Cu occurrence to the west of the Pluto property, runs through the northern boundary of both the West Block and the East Block at Pluto. Program highlights include the West Block where samples from a mineralized structure returned grades of 0.405 g/t Au in tectonized ultramafics in bedrock, nearby float from a local silicified metasediment returned 1,070 ppm Cu.

Based on observations throughout the program, deformation (and its intensity) observed within the various lithologies the extrapolated thickness or the width of the deformation zone is at least 300 meters, further indicating that this is more of a regional structure. The gabbro-pyroxenite complex found near the highway may represent part of the "Ventures Sill". This is the same structure which hosts the Opémiska Cu-Au mine in Chapais, and may also therefore be related to the much closer Dolomieu Ag-Cu mineralized occurrence, which lies about 1km east of the West Block (also close to the highway). This area, with its large amount of outcrop, observed mineralization (including both Cu and Zn sulphides) and potential structural and strike relationship to a major local deposit and is a high priority for future exploration.

Minroc Management Limited ("Minroc") recently completed a detailed work program and commented, "The initial prospecting program on the Pluto properties successfully found gold and copper mineralization on surface within the on-property portions of mineralized regional structures. The positive results obtained from this initial work program warrants follow up exploration work to determine the extent and tenor of the mineralization present throughout the properties."

Musk Metals CEO and Director Charn Deol states, "We are extremely encouraged by the results of our Pluto work program and the discovery and concentration of Gold and Copper in our sampling. We are planning a follow up program on Pluto to commence shortly to further define these discoveries and to identify high priority targets for a potential upcoming drill program. With highly prospective projects in some of the most prolific mining camps throughout Canada, Musk Metal anticipates an active period with multiple work programs in close proximity to recent significant discoveries throughout British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, as well as the evaluation of additional near-term acquisitions."

Both of the Pluto properties are made up of a series of crustal scale deformation zones and highly prospective sedimentary-volcanic rock contacts. The properties are located approximately 40km west of the Chibougamau mining camp and 15km west of the Chapais mining camp (6.5 M oz Au; 2.7 B lbs Cu of historic production). The Chibougamau camp has historically been mined and explored for Cu-Au mineralization but the recent discovery of the Nelligan deposit (IAMGOLD – Vanstar Resources) highlights the regional potential for orogenic gold mineralization which has been overlooked in the past.

About the Pluto Properties - Chapais-Chibougamau Mining Camp, Quebec
The Pluto properties are located west of the town of Chibougamau, Quebec, which provides excellent infrastructure and an experienced local workforce for exploration and mining activities. The Pluto Properties have been under-explored for base and precious metals and historic assay results returned Cu-Zn-Au-Ag values. Some historic diamond drill holes returned visible sulfide mineralization and VMS showings (Dolomieu-Sud). Recent exploration work completed at Pluto resulted in anomalous gold and base metals values in till samples and three distinct anomalous zones were outlined.

The technical information in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Francis R. Newton P.Geo (OGQ#2129), a "qualified person" pursuant to NI 43-101.

About Musk Metals Corp.
Musk Metals is a publicly traded exploration company focused on the development of highly prospective, discovery-stage mineral properties located in some of Canada's top mining jurisdictions.

Best Gold Stocks on the TSX

After reaching an all-time high last summer, the gold price has put out an underwhelming performance for much of 2021, leaving many investors wondering when it will take off again.

Values for the precious metal have failed to regain January’s momentum. Despite brief efforts in May and November, the gold price has struggled to stay above the US$1,800 per ounce mark.

For most of 2021, the yellow metal has battled a strengthening US dollar and gains in 10 year treasury yields. Investor risk appetite has also impeded growth for the safe haven asset.

Rockridge Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ROCK ) (OTCQB: RRRLF ) (Frankfurt: RR0 ) ("Rockridge" or the "Company") announces with deep sorrow that a Director of the Company, Richard ("Rick") Kusmirski, P.Geo., M.Sc., passed away on Friday, Dec. 3 rd in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, at the age of 68 after a lengthy illness. Rockridge wishes to extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and business associates. Rick was an accomplished exploration geologist with more than four decades of experience throughout the world but primarily focused in North America, specifically the Athabasca Basin. He has been an active member of the Saskatchewan mineral exploration and mining community for many years and will be dearly missed.

Rick actively participated in the discovery of a number of uranium, gold and base metal deposits, and for several years, in his capacity as Exploration Manager, he directed Cameco Corporation's uranium exploration projects in the Athabasca Basin. In 1999, Rick joined JNR Resources becoming Vice President of Exploration in 2000. Subsequently, he directed the exploration program that led to the discovery of the Maverick Zone on the Moore Lake uranium project with then partner Kennecott Canada. Rick later became JNR's President and CEO in January of 2001, and continued leading the company until February of 2013, JNR was acquired by Denison Mines Corp. by way of a friendly all-share take-over bid. Rick also served as the industry Chair and Director of the Exploration Section of the Saskatchewan Mining Association for many years and was a director of Rockridge Resources Ltd., Bessor Minerals Inc. and several other publicly traded companies.

Yamana Gold Receives Permit at Jacobina, Initiating Ramp Up of Phase 2 Expansion, Expects Fourth Quarter Company Wide Production to Exceed 270,000 GEO With Costs Tracking to Be the Lowest of the Year

YAMANA GOLD INC. (TSX:YRI; NYSE:AUY; LSE:AUY) ("Yamana" or "the Company") is pleased to announce it has received the permit at its Jacobina mine to increase throughput to 10,000 tonnes per day ("tpd"). Throughput is expected to reach 8,500 tpd by the second quarter of 2022. At this processing rate production at Jacobina will increase through the second half of 2022 with a full year at a production level of 230,000 ounces per year beginning in 2023.

The Company is also reporting particularly strong operating performance from El Peñón and Cerro Moro, both of which were planned to have higher production in the last several months of the year as they sequenced into higher grade zones, all of which supports the Company's previous guidance that fourth quarter production will exceed 270,000 gold equivalent ounces ("GEO") (1 ) and annual production will exceed overall 2021 guidance of 1,000,000 GEO (1 ) . Fourth quarter all-in sustaining costs ("AISC") (2) are also expected to be the lowest of the year and are estimated to be approximately $980 per GEO (1 ) or lower, which is 7% below AISC (2) reported for the prior three quarters.
