Vancouver, British Columbia TheNewswire - December 7, 2021 Xander Resources Inc. ("Xander" or the "Company") (TSXV:XND) (OTCQB:XNDRF) (FSX:1XI) is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated November 4, 2021, it has completed its preliminary reconnaissance program at its Timmins Nickel Project (the " Property ") located in Timmins, Ontario.

The primary purpose of the initial reconnaissance program was to build upon the airborne geophysical survey work completed previously (Geotech's Helicopter Borne VTEM) which has delineated a series of high-priority electromagnetic anomalies within the Property (Figure 1) through a soil sampling program and to assess access for future work including its planned drill program in early 2022.

Andrew Tims, P.Geo., the Company's Qualified Professional (QP) completed the site visit. A total of 115 samples were collected from outcrop and soils in the vicinity of the identified conductors for Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) extraction. Samples were submitted to SGS Minerals Lab in Burnaby, BC.

SGS Minerals Lab was chosen for processing samples from the Timmins nickel project due to their innovative trademarked MMI process. MMI uses a different approach that provides results that are more meaningful in areas of exploration where the overburden is considered deep. As such, the usage of MMI is an effective tool to characterize the nature of the buried conductors at Timmins, as the results will reflect the concentrations of elements within the underlying bedrock, providing additional valuable information as the Company prepares for its 2022 drill program.

The Property

The Property consists of two (2) separate mineral claim blocks and is located within the Timmins mining camp in Ontario, Canada, a highly prolific mining complex with over 100 hundred years of history and well supported by major infrastructure including highways, rail, and relatively inexpensive hydroelectric power.

The "North Block" consists of 236 claims located approximately 21 kilometres west of Canada Nickel Company's (CNC's) Crawford Project (as shown in Figure 2 below) where CNC has completed a preliminary economic assessment only 20 months after the commencement of exploration drilling that indicates 25-year mine with an after-tax NPV 8% of $1.2 billion i . It is also situated southwest of Kingsmill, Mahaffy-Aubin, and Nesbitt North, properties acquired from Noble Mineral Exploration by Canada Nickel through option agreements earlier in 2021 ii .

The "South Block" consists of 50 claims contiguous to Canada Nickel's MacDiarmid Project (as shown in Figure 3 below) where in May 2021, Canada Nickel announced a secondary discovery through the identification of significant intersections of mineralized dunite similar to the average mineralization initially discovered at Crawford. Geophysical surveys reveal that the MacDiarmid target to be approximately 1.8 kilometres long indicating a structural footprint averaging 400 meters in width – 15% larger than Canada Nickel's original Crawford's Main Zone discovery iii .

The Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec, Canada, is the world’s largest mineral-rich greenstone geological belt, hosting many major gold and base metal deposits. The prolific region contains a gold-mining history unsurpassed by most gold districts, having yielded spectacular 180 million ounces of gold since the discovery of its first mining camps in the early 1900s.

The Abitibi combines the perfect storm of government stability and high-grade mineralization discovery potential. One company looking to make the next big discovery is Xander Resources (TSXV:XND, OTCQB:XNDRF, FWB:1XI), a junior exploration company focused on developing highly prospective gold properties within Canada. The company currently has three projects located across three gold camps on the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec.

Channel Sampling at Renforth's Victoria West Delivers Consistent Surface Nickel Mineralization Combined with Copper Enrichment

Renforth Resources Inc. (CNSX:RFR.CN) (OTC:RFHRF) (FSE:9RR) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to share the consistent results of channel sampling across the ~275m stripped surface area of the ~5km Victoria West nickel/copper mineralized system within Renforth’s wholly owned ~30,000 hectare Surimeau District Property in NW Quebec. The channel samples demonstrate consistent elevated nickel and cobalt values, along with elevated copper and zinc values. In several locations the two mineralization types “mix”, the highlight of this “mixing” is a 12.9m section of Channel 49 which overall assays 0.121% Ni and 0.013% Co, including 0.224% Ni over 1m, which also includes 5.5m of 0.43% Cu and 1.63% Zn, within which 0.8m assays 2.05% Cu.
