Blue Moon Metals Inc. (TSXV:MOON)(OTC PINK:BMOOF)(FSE:8SX0) (the "Company") is pleased to provide shareholders with an update on 2020 accomplishments and plans for 2021
Patrick McGrath, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Moon Metals, stated "I am extremely pleased with the advancement of the Blue Moon Project over the past year. In 2021, our plan is to build on the recent successful drill programs now that we have regained a 100% interest in the Blue Moon Project by continuing testing for expansion of the deposit with the objective of increasing the size and grade of the resource. With the receipt of drill permit extension, we are set for a 2021 drilling campaign and will provide an overview of our primary drill targets shortly."
BLUE MOON PROJECT 2020 PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:
- Recent drill Holes, BMZ-79 and BMZ-80 all intersected significant intersections for zinc, copper, gold and silver demonstrating a higher-grade core of the deposit is present including intercepts of 7.47 metres at 25.55% zinc, 0.87% copper, 0.68 g/t gold and 17 g/t silver for a zinc equivalents ("ZnEq") of 28.46% in hole BMZ-79 and 19.58 metres at 8.41% zinc, 0.49% copper, 1.22 g/t gold and 82.75 g/t silver for a ZnEq of 12.41% in hole BMZ-80. (News Releases dated January 24, 2020 and February 3, 2020). These results have yet to be incorporated in the existing NI 43-101 Mineral Resource. Please refer to map below for location of the drill holes.
- Drilling has now demonstrated the massive sulphide lenses are traceable for 900 metres along plunge and open to surface and depth.
- Regaining a 100% interest in the project after Blue Moon's former partner funded work demonstrating both continuity and the presence of a high-grade central zone of mineralization.
- Buyback of a 2% NSR which leaves the property virtually royalty free.
- The Company received an extension of the drill permit to June 26, 2023.

ZINC EQUIVALENT CALCULATION METHOD (ZnEq)
The ZnEq formula and the underlying parameters used in its formulation are set out below:
The metal prices and the recoveries selected represent reasonable estimates of long-term metal prices and potential recoveries of metal in concentrate as detailed in the NI 43-101 filed on SEDAR on November 20, 2018.
The equation to calculate ZnEq is as follows: ZnEq = (Zn%*24.70 + Cu%*55.80 + Pb%*19.00 + Ag(oz/t)*11.05 + Au(oz/t)*875.00) / 24.70
