SKRR CORPORATE UPDATE:

SKRR Exploration Inc. has a large and diversified portfolio of highly prospective early-stage precious metals and strategic base metals, including nickel, cobalt and zinc. The Company presently operates 9 separate projects, totaling 72,478 ha., including 8 in the province of Saskatchewan and 1 in the province of British Columbia.  In Saskatchewan, 5 projects are primarily focused on gold (Olson, Ithingo, Olson, Manson Bay and Cathro), 2 projects are primarily focused on nickel and cobalt (Father Lake and Carp River) and 1 project focused on zinc and silver ( Borys Lake ). In British Columbia , SKRR operates the Nickel Peak claim group located in the FPX Metals "Decar Camp".

2022 Exploration Recap

In 2022, the Company was actively exploring on several of its Saskatchewan projects.

January – February 2022 – The Company completed a 10-hole, 1867m drill program at its Olson property.  Nine of the ten holes intersected significant gold mineralization in 4 separate target areas, including the Olson, Akbar, Michaels Lake and Carina areas.  Drilling at Michaels Lake resulted in a new discovery with hole OL22009 intersecting a very wide continuous interval yielding 0.56 g/t Au over 50.35m .

March 2022 – The company completed a 4,288 line-km airborne magnetic survey at 75m line spacing on the southern core part of its Irving Lake property.  A further 565 line-km of airborne magnetic survey at 75m line spacing was flown on the northern Bailey and Easton areas of the Irving Lake property.

April 2022 – The company completed a 1,042 line-km airborne magnetic survey at 50m line spacing on its Father Lake project. The magnetic field consists of a series of high and low trends parallel to the Grease River fault which demarcates the Dodge Domain (north side) and Tantato Domain (south side). The magnetic solutions highlight the contacts along the hybrid gneiss complex (interlayered felsic gneiss, mafic gneiss and metasediments) on the south side of the Grease River shear zone. A major NW-SE structural feature is observed which also offsets known VTEM conductors in the area. (The Dumas Lake fault).  The nickel host rock is a 200m to 800m wide norite body that can be traced for 16km trending east northeast with numerous nickel and copper showings along trend. The previous Strongbow Exploration Inc.'s Nickel Lake / Dumas Lake project covers several historic nickel and copper showings including: the Dumas Zones A, B, C & D. The norite host rock appears defined by a magnetic high in conjunction with VTEM conductors.

June 2022 - In June 2022 a geological mapping and sampling program was completed on the Cathro Project. Lithological data was collected from eight locations, along with 47 rock samples. Additionally, 430 soil samples were collected from 15 east-west trending soil lines, with samples spaced 25 m apart.  Soil samples returned gold values ranging from 0.1 to 320 ppb Au.  The most significant values were obtained between 230m to 1200m north-northwest of the Vidgy zone.  Of the 47 rock samples collected, the highest gold (2,490 ppb), silver (4.59 ppm) and copper (5,400 ppb) were returned from sample MHCTR009, which sampled a granodioritic unit cross-cut by a 2-5cm wide quartz vein near the Bartlett Lake showing.  Overall results show a number of anomalous areas in several areas of the property, and further follow-up work of mapping and sampling, followed by drilling is recommended.

A Focus on Nickel for 2023

SKRR Exploration Inc. has entered into a non-arm's-length acquisition agreement dated Oct. 24, 2022 , to acquire a 100-per-cent interest in Edge Geological Consulting Inc.'s Carp River nickel-copper-cobalt property consisting of five mineral claims comprising a total of 5,606.48 hectares.

Project Highlights:

Located in mineral-rich Saskatchewan , a world-class mining jurisdiction, immediately north of the town of Stony Rapids , The Carp River Nickel-Copper property is situated within the similar regional bedrock lithology associated with the nearby Axis Lake and Rea Lake Ni-Cu-Co deposits and Currie Lake occurrences of ALX's Firebird property, on which Rio Tinto has an option agreement to earn 80 per cent.

Numerous nickel, copper and cobalt showings along trend, including the Carp River and Bet claims and McAskill showings associated with multiple moderate- to high-priority interpreted VTEM (versatile time domain electromagnetic) anomalies.

Historic soil grid survey exploration on the Carp River grid in 2005 determined that Ni, Cu and Co anomalies were significant and comparable with those associated with the Axis Lake and Currie Lake occurrences located five kilometres and 10 kilometres to the west, respectively.

Sherman Dahl , SKRR Exploration's chief executive officer, commented:

"SKRR continues to build shareholder value by thinking outside the box. Over the last six months, we have expanded our property portfolio with a focus on battery metals in both Northern Saskatchewan and British Columbia . Over the next few months, we are further committed to unlocking the value of our portfolio of gold and battery metal assets. We are extremely excited to acquire the Carp River nickel-copper-cobalt property and add to our expanding portfolio of assets in one of the world's premier mining jurisdictions."

The Carp River nickel-copper property details

The Carp River property, composed of five contiguous mineral claims totalling 5,606.48 hectares, is located immediately north of the hamlet of Stony Rapids in the province of Saskatchewan . Stony Rapids is a full-service community with a commercial airport. Access to the property is through fixed-wing or helicopter aircraft. From a regional perspective, the property lies within the Tantato domain, which makes up part of the significant Snowbird tectonic zone. Regionally, bedrock consists primarily of mafic granulite and garnet-pyroxene diatexite formations, which extend on strike to the west toward the Axis Lake and Rea Lake Ni-Cu-Co deposits and the Currie Lake occurrences located within five km to 10 km to the west of Carp River.

Historic exploration by Red Dragon and Pure Nickel Inc. in 2005 included a regional airborne VTEM geophysics survey, which covered the known Axis Lake, Rea Lake , Currie Lake and other showings. Interpretation of the 2005 VTEM survey picked numerous highly rated VTEM anomalies over the Carp River property. Follow-up soil grid surveys were conducted over areas where they determined that the conductors looked prospective. Red Dragon and Pure Nickel determined that the Ni-Cu-Co anomalies became more intense close to nickeliferous norite bodies. One of those grids surveyed was the Carp River grid, located in the middle of the Carp River property, where soil results were significant and comparable with those around the Axis Lake and Currie Lake occurrences.

SKRR Exploration cautions that some of the historical results were collected and reported by past operators, and have been neither verified nor confirmed by a qualified person, but form a basis for future work on the Carp River property. Mineralization hosted on nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization that may be hosted on the Carp River property.

Update on Father Lake Nickel airborne geophysics survey

A high-resolution helicopter-borne magnetic survey was carried out by Precision GeoSurveys Inc. between April 2 to April 6, 2022 (see news release dated March 22, 2022 ). The survey collected 1,042 line km of high-resolution magnetic data over one survey block. The entire property was covered with the magnetic survey. Interpretation of the geophysics survey was completed by Bingham Geoscience.

The magnetic field consists of a series of high and low trends parallel to the Grease River fault, which demarcate the Dodge domain (north side) and the Tantato domain (south side). The magnetic solutions highlight the contacts along the hybrid gneiss complex (interlayered felsic gneiss, mafic gneiss and metasediments) on the south side of the Grease River shear zone. A major northwest-southeast structural feature is observed, which also offsets known VTEM conductors in the area (The Dumas Lake fault).

The nickel host rock is a 200-metre-to-800-metre-wide norite body that can be traced for 16 km trending east-northeast with numerous nickel and copper showings along trend. The project covers several historic nickel and copper showings, including: the Dumas zones A, B, C and D. The norite host rock appears defined by a magnetic high in conjunction with historic interpreted VTEM conductors.

The VTEM covers the west side of the project, and an older MegaTEM survey covers the entire project. However, the MegaTEM does not seem to resolve conductors well. There is at least one small area with a strong conductor on the east portion of the property. Coverage of the east portion of the property with VTEM may be a future option.

SKRR's Nickel Peak Claim Group Overview

SKRR Exploration Inc. has also expanded its 100-per-cent-owned Nickel Peak claim group to cover additional areas of interest over the Creek complex-Trembleur ultramafite unit Late Pennsylvanian to Late Triassic ultramafic rocks, contiguous to FPX Nickel Corp.

The Nickel Peak 1 and Nickel Peak 2 claim blocks now include the Nickel Peak North and Nickel Peak West (which were recently staked by SKRR) and are located to the north of FPX Nickel's Decar nickel project, an advanced project targeting awaruite, a nickel-iron alloy mineral, hosted by serpentinized ultramafic intrusive rocks of the Trembleur ultramafic unit. SKRR cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Nickel Peak group.

SKRR's expanded Nickel Peak Group now spans 8,425 acres (3,410 hectares) and is approximately 110 kilometres northwest of Fort St. James, B.C. , in the Omineca mining district. Metallic mineralization includes nickel, cobalt and chromium with the documented presence of awaruite. Assays by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. in 2005 returned up to 1,826 parts per million (ppm); 1,734 ppm nickel with 1,113 ppm chromium. SKRR cautions that historical results were collected and reported by past operators and have not been verified nor confirmed by a qualified person but form a basis for future work at the Nickel Peak group. Further work (including sampling) is required by SKRR in order to verify the historical work on the Nickel Peak group.

Sample results from an isolated mag anomaly on the SKRR's Nickel Peak 1 claim block documented the presence of awaruite and returned up to 1,240 ppm nickel in 2008 (master identification (ID): 093N081399) and up to 771.4 ppm nickel in 1983 (master ID: 093N833085) contiguous to the east side Nickel Rock Resources Inc. and Surge Battery Metals's Nickel 100 group.

Sherman Dahl , chief executive officer of SKRR, states:

"We are excited to begin exploration on the newly expanded Nickel Peak group this 2023 season. Recent spikes in demand for nickel is fuelled by the meteoric rise in electric vehicles and the need for this important metal in the manufacturing of batteries that power them. Nickel prices have risen sharply this year with a massive 250-per-cent spike in early March of 2022, forecasts call for continued rise in Nickel demand with more and more electric vehicles and battery powered devices coming to market."

"The acquisition and subsequent expansion of our Nickel Peak group of claims represents yet another example SKRR's continued mission to build a world-class base and precious metal company and promise to drive value for shareholders. These Nickel Peak claims are situated in an active world-class nickel camp and represent tremendous blue-sky potential with multiple historic high-grade nickel samples and assays that have been underexplored until now. SKRR will be a leader with a diversified portfolio of high-quality long-life assets. The SKRR team has done an incredible job over the last few years of drilling, exploring, discovering and positioning the company for success."

These highly prospective Nickel Peak Group claims are contiguous to the east of Surge Battery Metal and Nickel Rock Resources's Nickel 100 group that cover 18 British Columbian Minfile chromite occurrences, some of which are reported to be mineralized with nickel, platinum-palladium group and other rare, highly valuable elements. SKRR cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Nickel Peak group.

Nickel-cobalt mineralization has not been well-explored, but the presence of awaruite has been documented. Geologist Ursula Mowat completed a preliminary fieldwork program over the area of the Nickel 100 claim group in 2004, and confirmed the presence of elevated nickel, cobalt and chromium values in rocks and stream sediments. Ms. Mowat is the recipient of the 2015 H.H. Spud Huestis Award for excellence in prospecting and mineral exploration granted by the Association of Mineral Exploration (AME) in B.C. AME B.C. is both a large and successful industry association representing the mineral exploration industry in B.C.

Nickel Peak group -- property highlights:

World-class jurisdiction: B.C.'s Omineca mining division is host to multiple world-class mining projects, including the nearby Decar nickel project of FPX Nickel, an advanced project targeting awaruite, a nickel-iron alloy mineral, hosted by serpentinized ultramafic intrusive rocks of the Trembleur ultramafic unit;

High-grade historic nickel assays and sampling: Assays by Acme Analytical Laboratories in 2005 returned up to 1,826 ppm; 1,734 ppm nickel with 1,113 ppm chromium. Sample results from an isolated mag anomaly on the SKRR's Nickel Peak 1 claim block documented the presence of awaruite and returned both up to 1,240 ppm nickel in 2008 and up to 771.4 ppm nickel in 1983.

Strong blue-sky potential: Documented presence of awaruite, high-grade historic nickel sampling and assays in an underexplored area of an active nickel camp.

Update on Father Lake Airborne Geophysics Survey

A high resolution helicopter-borne magnetic survey was carried out by Precision GeoSurveys Inc. between April 2 to April 6, 2022 (see News Release Mar 22, 2022 ). The survey collected 1,042 line km of high resolution magnetic data over one survey block. The entire property was covered with the magnetic survey. Interpretation of the geophysics survey was completed by Bingham Geoscience.

The magnetic field consists of a series of high and low trends parallel to the Grease River fault which demarcates the Dodge Domain (north side) and Tantato Domain (south side). The magnetic solutions highlight the contacts along the hybrid gneiss complex (interlayered felsic gneiss, mafic gneiss and metasediments) on the south side of the Grease River shear zone. A major NW-SE structural feature is observed which also offsets known VTEM conductors in the area (The Dumas Lake fault).

The nickel host rock is a 200m to 800m wide norite body that can be traced for 16km trending east northeast with numerous nickel and copper showings along trend. The project covers several historic nickel and copper showings including: the Dumas Zones A, B, C & D. The norite host rock appears defined by a magnetic high in conjunction with historic interpreted VTEM conductors.

The VTEM covers the west side of the project and an older MegaTEM survey covers the entire project. However, the MegaTEM does not seem to resolve conductors well. There is at least one small area with a strong conductor on the east portion of the property. Coverage of the east portion of the property with VTEM may be a future option.

eb tucker, gold and silver bars

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce are important levels for investors to watch.

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
