Hole GR-17 intercepted 303 metres of mineralisation including 8.1 metres of 1.00% nickel, 0.81% copper and 1.13 gpt palladium

Hole GR-15 intercepted 199 metres of mineralisation including 8.5 metres of 0.86% nickel, 0.86% copper and 1.00 gpt palladium

Montréal, Quebec TheNewswire - Sept 07, 2022 Sama Resources Inc. ("Sama" or the "Company") (TSXV:SME ) ( OTC:SAMMF) is pleased to announce the assay results from additional drilling from the 2021-22 drilling campaign at the Grata Nickel–Copper–Palladium prospect. To date, Sama has drilled a total of 64 drill holes totalling 15,924 metres at the project in 2022 with 45 drill holes totalling 14,995 metres at Grata alone. The assay results for holes GR-12 to GR-19b are summarized in this release, remaining results are pending.

Highlights

  • 15,924 metres in 64 holes drilled to date at the Samapleu-Grata-Yepleu deposits

    • 8,000 metres initially budgeted

    • Mineralised intersections are up to 303 metres in thickness from surface.

    • Results confirm mineralisation over 850 metres of strike

  • Assays results are pending for 22 remaining Grata drill holes

  • Detailed metallurgical studies on Grata material are ongoing

"Given our successful drill efforts to date at the Grata discovery, we are expecting to enhance our mineral resources for the entire project. Today's results continue to demonstrate the upside potential of the Grata deposit but also for the entire property" stated Dr. Marc-Antoine Audet, President & CEO of Sama Resources Inc.

Mr. Audet added: "We will continue exploring the Grata prospect for massive sulphide lenses and accumulations within this large feeder zone of the Yacouba ultramafic-mafic intrusive complex while pursuing multiple other promising targets within the Samapleu-Yepleu exploration area that have been totally unexplored.

Assays results for 9 holes (GR-12 to GR-19b) drilled in Q1 2022 are presented in Table 1 . All measurements are core lengths and may not represent true geological widths.

Grata: Latest discovery in the Yacouba Ultramafic-Mafic ("UM") Intrusive Complex

In September 2021, Sama announced the Grata discovery located 5 kilometres east of the Samapleu deposit ( Figure 1 ).

The discovery hole, GR-03 ( Figure 2 ), drilled in June 2021, returned a 310-metre sequence of pyroxenite and gabbro containing a 147-metre interval of disseminated sulfides and several intersections of semi-massive sulphide mineralisation. The second hole, GR-04, confirmed the width of the mineralised zone with a 141-metre mineralised intersection including 6.4 metres("m") grading 1.05% nickel ("Ni") , 1.28% copper ("Cu") and 0.48 grams per tonnes (" gpt") palladium ("Pd") and 6.6 m grading 0.73% Ni, 0.38% Cu and 0.30 gpt Pd.

This release discloses mineralised intersections ranging from 134 m (GR-16) to 303 m (GR-17). Hole GR-17 returned a combined 303 m of mineralised material, including 8.1 m grading 1.00% Ni, 0.81% Cu and 1.13 gpt of Pd and 2.8 m at 0.93% Ni, 0.74% Cu and 1.10 gpt Pd. Hole GR-12 intersected a combined 239 m of mineralised material grading 0.30% Ni including 8.5 m at 0.86% Ni, 0.79% Cu and 1.0 gpt Pd. Hole GR-15 intersected a combined 199 m grading 0.30% Ni and 0.30% Cu including 3.4 m at 1.48% Ni, 1.85% Cu and 2.11 gpt Pd.

The mineralisation at Grata is similar in composition to the Samapleu deposit (" Samapleu ") but shows a higher proportion of chalcopyrite.

Sama's goal is to increase mineral resources at Samapleu and Grata as well as searching for massive sulphide veins and lenses that could have accumulated at depth in traps and embayments along the feeder system of the Yacouba UM Intrusive Complex.

QA/QC

Co re logging and sampling was performed at Sama's Samapleu and Yepleu field facilities. Sample preparation was conducted at the Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratory in Abidjan, Ivory Coast . Sample pulps were delivered to Activation Laboratories Ltd, Ancaster and Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, for assaying. All samples were assayed for Ni, Cu, Co, Pt, Pd, Au, Fe and S.

The technical information in this release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Marc-Antoine Audet, Ph.D Geology, P.Geo and President and CEO of Sama, and a ‘qualified person', as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
