Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN; OTCQX:TTSRF; FSE:A2D) ("Tartisan", or the "Company") is pleased to provide diamond drill core assay results and an update for its diamond drilling program at the 100% owned Kenbridge Nickel Project located in the Kenora Mining District, Ontario

Hole KB21-204 intersected two nickel-copper zones at a drill depth of 993.55 metres and 1,002 metres. The two zones are interpreted to represent the downdip extension of two horizons (Zone A and Zone B) intersected in holes KB21-198, KB21-200 and KB21-202. In KB21-204 Zone A returned 1.05 metres of 3.18% Ni and 0.19% Cu including a higher-grade section of 0.35 metres of 7.73% Ni and 0.16% Cu. In the same hole Zone B returned 7.8 metres of 0.85% Ni and 0.54% Cu including 4.0 metres of 1.15% Ni and 0.71% Cu. Hole 204 is located approximately 150m below the deepest drill hole intersection completed in the 1950's (Drill hole K2011- 4.25% Ni over 3m) and is the deepest drill intersection on the project (see Figures 2 and 3). Holes KB21-205 and KB21-206 have also been completed and have been submitted to the laboratory for assays.

The Phase 1 drill campaign has now been completed for a cumulative total of 10,737 metres of diamond drilling (planned 10,000 metres). Nine holes were drilled at the Kenbridge Deposit (one hole abandoned) for a total of 8,318 metres. Four holes were completed on the Kenbridge North target (conductor KBN1, see Figure 1) for a total of 2,419 metres of drilling. The Kenbridge North target is located approximately 2.5 kilometres north of the Kenbridge Nickel Deposit and was identified from a ground-based Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) survey completed in early 2021. Drilling at Kenbridge North intersected similar rock types that host the Kenbridge Nickel Deposit. Weakly disseminated sulphide was intersected and those zones have been sent out for assays.

All drill holes completed at the Kenbridge Deposit have been surveyed with a downhole TDEM system. Interpretation of all available data including recently acquired borehole TDEM and drill core assays will be incorporated into the existing geological model to aid in guiding additional diamond drilling, particularly downdip of the known mineralization. Borehole TDEM surveys could not be completed on the Kenbridge North target due to deteriorating weather and unsafe conditions on the surrounding lakes. Those 4 holes will be surveyed in the winter once freeze up conditions have set in and will be combined with a ground TDEM survey over 2 additional identified targets to the east and west of the Kenbridge North Grid.

Mark Appleby, President and CEO of the Company commented "what is of interest from hole KB21-204 is the high-grade nickel section. This is the deepest intersection with assay results on the Kenbridge Deposit to date. Although the high-grade is narrow in this hole it suggests there is a high-grade nickel tenor when intersecting semi-massive sulphide. Our hope is that the TDEM survey can point us towards these higher-grade, higher conductivity zones. We'll review all the data once the final assay results are received and then plan our next drill program. During the 2021 work program the Company also worked at enhancing the infrastructure of the project including improving all season access into the property and upgrading the core processing facilities. We believe this will allow us to move towards doing year-round work programs."

Pedro Resources Announces Potentially Significant Stream Sediment Results from its Voisey's Bay West Nickel, Copper and Cobalt Property Located Near Vale's Voisey's Bay Mine and the Resultant Staking of New Mineral Licenses

Pedro Resources Ltd. (CSE:VBN) ("Pedro" or the Company") is pleased to announce potentially significant results from an indicator mineral survey of stream sediments on Pedro's current property. The samples were collected in July 2019 on Pedro's Voisey's Bay West ("VBW") property as it then existed. The survey was hampered by poor weather and consequently the full property was not covered

The stream sediment samples were processed in August 2021 and analysed with automated Scanning Electron Microprobe (SEM) techniques by Dr. Derek Wilton, PGeo. The analyses indicated the variable presence of sulphide minerals (pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and pentlandite) as inclusions in sediment grains from some stream samples. These are the same minerals that constitute the ore mineral assemblage at Voisey's Bay Mine (VBM), owned and operated by Vale, and their presence in the survey samples suggests a possibility for VBM-style mineralization in bedrock upstream from the sediment sample collection sites. Two clusters of samples with these sulphide inclusions were identified on high plateau regions of the property. The restricted nature of the high plateau streams suggests a more a local source for the sediment.
