Puma Exploration Inc. (TSXV: PUMA, OTC: PUXPF) (the "Company" or "Puma") is pleased to report that additional surface samples collected at its Williams Brook Gold Project in New Brunswick, Canada, last fall have returned high-grade gold. Four (4) grab samples* that graded above 100 gt Au (>3 ozt Au) are located above Puma's current drilling area (see Figure 1). Results from the last 566 grab samples collected as part of Puma's Fall 2021 stripping program at the O'Neil Gold Trend ("OGT") have now been received. High-grade gold results will continue to be used to identify drilling targets in the Company's ongoing 10,000 m drilling program.

From the last 566 samples collected at the OGT last fall and reported today, 66 (11.6%) show gold grades above 1.00 g/t Au . Of these, 21 returned gold grades above 10.00 g/t Au (see Table 1). The average grade of this last batch (all 566) of results, ranging from below detection limit up to 121.50 g/t Au , is 2.01 g/t Au .

Based on the Company's previous success drilling high-grade gold areas identified at surface (grab samples* of 241.00 g/t Au, 199.00 g/t Au, 57.40 g/t Au returned 5.55 g/t Au over 50.15 m at depth , see Sept. 15, 2021 News Release), today's results confirm and expand Puma's priority targets in its ongoing 10,000 metres drilling program.

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

UPDATE ON CURRENT DRILLING PROGRAM
The objective of the 2022 drilling program is to test the OGT along its 750 metres strike length and confirm the depth extension of the high-grade gold-bearing quartz veins found on surface (see Figure 2). To date, nineteen (19) holes have been drilled for a total of 2,390 metres.

The holes, so far, were collared northeast of the Lynx Gold discovery, where a wide gold mineralized zone was identified by drilling last summer, including the intersection of 5.55 g/t Au over 50.15 m in hole WB 21-02 (see Sept. 15, 2021 News Release ). The drilling targets areas where surface samples have returned significant gold grades (> 1 g/t Au). Two thousand five hundred (2,500) core samples have been sent to the laboratory for assaying. Results are pending and will be released when received.

The systematic drilling will continue toward the O'Neil Gold Zone, located 250 meters southwest of the Lynx Gold zone, targeting the contact between the sediments and the rhyolite.

QUALIFIED PERSON
Dominique Gagné, PGeo, a qualified person as defined by Canadian National Instrument 43-101 standards, has reviewed and approved the geological information reported in this news release.

ON-SITE QUALITY ASSURANCE/QUALITY CONTROL ("QA/QC") MEASURES
Grab samples were bagged, sealed and sent to the facility of ALS CHEMEX in Moncton, New Brunswick, where each sample was dried, crushed, and pulped before being fire assayed (Au-ICP21). The remaining coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage for further work or verification as needed. As part of its QA/QC program, the Company inserts external gold standards (low to high grade) and blanks for every batch of surface samples. All samples over 10 g/t gold or with abundant visible gold are analyzed with gravity finish (Au-GRA22). Check assays are routinely performed for samples with visible gold to ascertain the gold content of the mineralization zone.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
Puma has developed and implemented precautions and procedures compliant with Québec and New Brunswick's health guidelines. Strict protocols are in place to ensure the safety of all staff, thereby reducing the potential for community contact and spreading of the virus.

Brian Leni: Precious Metals Thesis is "Overwhelming" — Be Picky, Buy Best of the Bestyoutu.be

Now trading just above US$1,800 per ounce, the gold price isn't performing as well as some investors would like. But for Brian Leni, founder of Junior Stock Review, the outlook remains bright.

"To me the value in the precious metals and the overall precious metals thesis is just so strong it's overwhelming," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Leni describes himself as a value investor, and emphasized that for him the precious metals story isn't a question of "if," it's a question of "when" — the key is picking the right companies and being ready to wait.

Turmoil continues to rock the broader markets, and while the gold price has also suffered declines, George Salamis believes it's holding up well compared to other assets.

"Gold has hung in there pretty well relative to other investments — other commodities, currencies. I think it's held its own," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Salamis, who is the president and CEO of Integra Resources (TSXV:ITR,NYSEAMERICAN:ITRG), explained that he also sees gold miners doing well, but thinks volatility is stopping them from making moves.
