  • Program designed to significantly increase tonnage

Vanadium One Iron Corp. ("Vanadium One" or the "Company") (TSXV:VONE) is pleased to provide an update on the status of its previously announced 2020 drill program at its Mont Sorcier iron and vanadium project, located just outside of Chibougamau, Quebec. The program was designed to expand the current resource at Mont Sorcier to produce a new Mineral Resource estimate, which is planned for Q1 2021

We are pleased to announce that the diamond drilling component of the program has been completed ahead of schedule with 10 holes drilled for a total of 3,414 metres, instead of the planned 9 holes drilled with a total of 3,500 meters. Drilling targeted the eastern extension of the North Zone and covered more than 1.5 kilometers along strike as planned. Efficient execution of the program allowed the company to add a drill hole (MSN-20-14) to the west of the current North Zone Mineral Resource, adding a deeper down dip projection to known mineralization. Drilling reports indicate that the intersection of the ultramafic host rocks occurred in line with expectations based on historical magnetic surveys and surface geological mapping.

With drilling, core logging and sampling complete, the Company is awaiting the initial results from assaying and Davis Tube analysis to determine magnetite content and the vanadium and iron grades of in-situ material as well as of magnetite concentrates. Initial results are expected in the coming weeks. The drill program and associated work is based in part on the recommendations suggested in the Technical Report entitled "NI 43-101 Technical Report - Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) of the Mont Sorcier Project, Province of Quebec, Canada" (available on SEDAR and Vanadium One's website: www.vanadiumone.com). The results from this field work will be used to update the Mineral Resource estimate published in April 2019 as outlined below:

Mineral Resource Estimate1 at Mont Sorcier Using a Cut-off Grade2 of 14% Fe, effective 23 April 2019 (https://www.vanadiumone.com/news/2019/Indicated-Resource-of-113.5-Million-Tonnes.pdf).

1 Numbers have been rounded to reflect the precision of Inferred and Indicated Mineral Resource estimates.

2 The reporting cut-off was calculated for a magnetite concentrate containing 65% Fe with price of $US 90/t of dry concentrate, 50% of the price of V2O5 contained in the concentrate, a V2O5 price of $US 14/lb, a minimum of 0.2 % of V2O5 contained in the concentrate, an open pit mining operation, a cost of mining and milling feed mineralization of USD 13.80/t, a cost of transporting concentrate of USD 40/t; and a cost of tailing disposal of USD 1.5/t.

3 Vanadium One is not aware of any environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-economic, marketing or political factors that might materially affect these mineral resource estimates.

4 Resource classification, as defined by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum in their document "CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves" of May 10, 2014.

5 Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and by definition do not demonstrate economic viability. This MRE includes inferred Mineral Resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves. It is reasonably expected that the majority of Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration.

Cliff Hale-Sanders, President and CEO of Vanadium One Iron commented "We are very pleased to have completed the drill program at Mont Sorcier in a timely manner and expect further updates in the near future to continue to highlight the potential offered at Mont Sorcier. We believe an expanded resource base in conjunction with the robust economics outlined in the PEA earlier this year, underscore the potential we see in moving Mont Sorcier forward into a long life, highly profitable iron and vanadium mine."

The drill results are expected to provide further support to the outcomes of the PEA as outlined in the Technical Report entitled "NI 43-101 Technical Report - Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) of the Mont Sorcier Project, Province of Quebec, Canada". The report was completed by CSA Global Consultants Canada Ltd, an ERM Company (CSA Global) and has an effective date of February 27, 2020 - see https://www.vanadiumone.com/news/2020/VONE-NR-PEA.pdf. The report was prepared in accordance with Canadian Securities Administrators' National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

The Technical Report is available for review under the Company's profile on SEDAR and on the Company's website.
