ValOre Metals Corp. ("ValOre"; TSX ‐ V: VO; OTC: KVLQF; Frankfurt: KEQ0, "the Company") today announced initial trench channel sample assay results from the Ipueiras target area ("Ipueiras") at ValOre's 100%-owned Pedra Branca Platinum Group Elements ("PGE", "2PGE+Au") Project ("Pedra Branca") in northeastern Brazil. Ipueiras is located 10 kilometres ("km") south of the Trapia deposit area, (885,000 oz 2PGE+Au grading 0.96 gt in 28.8 Mt). ValOre has tested the target with 35 Trado ® auger holes and 4 trenches to date in 2022, following a detailed geological mapping and prospecting program.

"The Trado ® auger continues to guide ValOre geologists to significant discoveries property-wide, as demonstrated by the broad, high grade trench intervals from Ipueiras," stated ValOre's VP of Exploration, Colin Smith. "Excellent exploration upside remains with several >40 g/t 2PGE+Au rock samples occurring to the southwest of the trenched zone along a strong and consistent magnetic anomaly, defining a 2-kilometre-long undrilled mineralized trend."

Ipueiras Trenching Highlights:

  • Two of four trenches returned significant intervals of PGE mineralization, including:
    • 64 metres ("m") grading 2.68 grams per tonne palladium + platinum + gold ("g/t 2PGE+Au"), including 25 m grading 4.65 g/t 2PGE+Au in trench TR22IP01;
    • 38 m grading 2.14 g/t 2PGE+Au , including 15 m grading 4.45 g/t 2PGE+Au in trench TR22IP02;
  • Detailed follow-up mapping, Trado ® and trenching has commenced to further delineate this broad, high-grade, shallow ultramafic ("UM") intrusion.

Ipueiras 2022 Trado ® Auger Drilling and Trenching Program

ValOre conducted detailed geological mapping and prospecting throughout the 2-km-long anomalous trend at Ipueiras, and followed up with 35 Trado ® auger holes (105 m), with reported PGE mineralization in 11 of 35 holes. CLICK HERE for news release dated March 31, 2022 and see Figure 1 below for a plan map of Ipueiras. Highlights of historic and ValOre high-grade rock samples collected throughout the area include grades over 40 g/t 2PGE+Au at the Southwest and Northeast Zones.

Five shallow pre-ValOre diamond drill holes tested a portion of the northeast zone of Ipueiras, with PGE mineralization reported in 2 holes. Revised interpretations, based on new data from ValOre's ongoing exploration program, demonstrate excellent potential for mineralization continuity at depth and along strike.

PGE-mineralized Trado ® auger results defined an area of focus within the Northeast Zone for priority follow up work, and was subsequently tested for in-situ PGE mineralization by excavation of 4 trenches totaling 189 m, covering a strike length of approximately 200 m. All 4 trenches confirmed UM and UM-derived rocks continuity along strike, with PGE mineralization reported in 3 of 4 trenches. Assays remain pending for trench TR22IP04.

Assay highlights include multiple high-grade PGE results from the two northernmost trenches associated with thick chromitites and chromitite-rich UMs, including:

  • TR22IP01: 64 m grading 2.68 g/t 2PGE+Au, including 25 m grading 4.65 g/t 2PGE+Au ;
  • TR22IP02: 38 m grading 2.14 g/t 2PGE+Au, including 15 m grading 4.45 g/t 2PGE+Au ;
  • TR22IP03*: 2.0 m grading 0.37 g/t 2PGE+Au (* assays pending for final 5.0 m).

See Figure 2 below for a plan map with trench locations at the Northeaster Zone at Ipueiras; Figure 3 for pictures of the Ipueiras trenches, with detailed photographs highlighting chromitite occurring in the area; and Figures 4A and 4B for detailed trench cross sections. Reported trench assay interval lengths are channel samples and estimated to represent 70-80% true width.

High-grade PGE assays from historical and ValOre samples, in addition to Trado ® auger holes drilled by ValOre at the Southwest Zone of the Ipueiras trend are interpreted to be correlative with the high-grade UMs and chromitite reefs exposed in trenches TR22IP01 and TR22IP02, extending known PGE mineralization and exploration upside for an additional 2 km to the southwest of the existing historical core drilling and trench area.

Detailed follow-up mapping, Trado ® and trenching has commenced to further delineate this broad anomalous trend.

About ValOre Metals Corp.

ValOre Metals Corp. (TSX V: VO) is a Canadian company with a portfolio of high‐quality exploration projects. ValOre's team aims to deploy capital and knowledge on projects which benefit from substantial prior investment by previous owners, existence of high-value mineralization on a large scale, and the possibility of adding tangible value through exploration, process improvement, and innovation.

In May 2019, ValOre announced the acquisition of the Pedra Branca Platinum Group Elements (PGE) property, in Brazil, to bolster its existing Angilak uranium, Genesis/Hatchet uranium and Baffin gold projects in Canada.

The Pedra Branca PGE Project comprises 52 exploration licenses covering a total area of 56,852 hectares (140,484 acres) in northeastern Brazil. At Pedra Branca, 7 distinct PGE+Au deposit areas host, in aggregate, a 2022 NI 43-101 inferred resource of 2.198 Moz 2PGE+Au contained in 63.6 Mt grading 1.08 g/t 2PGE+Au ( CLICK HERE for news release dated March 24, 2022). All the currently known Pedra Branca inferred PGE resources are potentially open pittable.

Comprehensive exploration programs have demonstrated the "District Scale" potential of ValOre's Angilak Property in Nunavut Territory, Canada that hosts the Lac 50 Trend having a current Inferred Resource of 2,831,000 tonnes grading 0.69% U3O8, totaling 43.3 million pounds U3O8. For disclosure related to the inferred resource for the Lac 50 Trend uranium deposits, please CLICK HERE for ValOre's news release dated March 1, 2013.

ValOre's team has forged strong relationships with sophisticated resource sector investors and partner Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) on both the Angilak and Baffin Gold Properties. ValOre was the first company to sign a comprehensive agreement to explore for uranium on Inuit Owned Lands in Nunavut Territory and is committed to building shareholder value while adhering to high levels of environmental and safety standards and proactive local community engagement.

ValOre Drills Multiple Zones of Near-Surface Radioactivity at Dipole Target, Angilak Property Uranium Project

ValOre Metals Corp. ("ValOre"; TSX ‐ V: VO; OTC: KVLQF; Frankfurt: KEQ0, "the Company") today provided a preliminary update on the Reverse Circulation ("RC") drilling at ValOre's 100% owned 59,483-hectare Angilak Property Uranium Project ("Angilak"), located in Nunavut Territory, Canada. All seven RC holes drilled at the Dipole target have intersected multiple, shallow zones of radioactivity.

"Dipole was first drilled in 2015, where 9 of 9 ValOre diamond drill holes intersected multiple zones of near surface uranium mineralization in rocks analogous to those found in the Lac 50 Trend deposits," stated ValOre's VP of Exploration, Colin Smith. "2022 RC drilling at Dipole confirms that U 3 O 8 mineralization remains open at depth and along strike in both directions coincident to a 3.4-km-long, coincident, VLF-EM conductor and uranium-in-soils anomaly."
