Gold

Puma Exploration Inc. (TSXV: PUMA, OTC: PUXPF) (the "Company" or "Puma") is pleased to announce the launch of its 2022 Exploration Program at its Flagship Williams Brook Gold Property located in New Brunswick, Atlantic-Canada. The 2022 program (see December 17, 2021, News Release) includes an initial 10,000 metres diamond drilling program that will target the most prospective areas identified to date of the O'Neil Gold Trend ("OGT").

The drilling program, expected to begin on January 17, will target the most promising gold zones of the OGT discovered in 2021 through surface exploration work (see Figure 1). The inaugural 2,300 metres of drilling at the OGT's Lynx Zone returned 5.50 g/t Au over 50.15 m in hole WB21-02 (see Sept.15, 2021, News Release). Building on that success, the 2022 drilling at the OGT will focus on the currently excavated, mapped, and sampled 750-metres trend to maximize success.

Last fall, 750 grab samples were collected along the favourable rhyolite/sediment contact to confirm the continuity of gold mineralization at surface along the O'Neil Gold Trend (see Dec.8, 2021, News Release). Results from 50 grab samples received to date include 51.70 g/t Au, 28.70 g/t Au, 27.20 g/t Au, 23.10 g/t Au, 18.50 g/t Au* (see Table 1) and show that high-grade gold mineralization is both significant and appears continuous along the OGT. The first target of the 2022 10,000 metres drilling program will be an area northeast of the Lynx Gold Zone, where new grab samples returned up to 51.70 g/t Au* .

*The reader is cautioned that grab samples are selective by nature and may not represent the true metal content of the mineralized zone.

" Our technical team has been very systematic in its approach to exploration over the last 18 months. The knowledge we acquired led to a very successful inaugural drilling program at the Lynx area of the O'Neil Gold Trend ("OGT"). As we embark on drilling this follow-up 10,000 metres at the OGT, the compilation of grab sample results, geophysical data, geology, and structural mapping will enable us to optimize our targets and maximize our chance of success. 2022 will be a transformational year for Puma, and investors can expect regular news as we aggressively develop the Williams Brook Gold Project. " commented Marcel Robillard, President & CEO of Puma Exploration.
