ValOre Trado® Auger Returns 8 m grading 2.05 g/t 2PGE+Au and 6 m grading 3.60 g/t 2PGE+Au at Ipueiras Target, Pedra Branca

ValOre Metals Corp. ("ValOre"; TSX ‐ V: VO; OTC: KVLQF; Frankfurt: KEQ0, "the Company") today announced multiple high-grade PGE assay results from the follow-up Trado ® auger program at the Ipueiras target ("Ipueiras") at ValOre's 100%-owned Pedra Branca Platinum Group Elements ("PGE", "2PGE+Au") Project ("Pedra Branca") in northeastern Brazil.

"Phase 2 Trado ® results from Ipueiras confirm the presence of in-situ, high-grade, at-surface palladium-platinum mineralization at the undrilled Southwest Zone," stated ValOre's V.P. of Exploration, Colin Smith. "Follow-up trenching has commenced to further delineate the PGE-bearing intrusion prior to core or RC drilling."

Ipueiras Trado ® Auger Drilling Highlights:

Follow-up Trado ® auger drilling at Ipueiras returned multiple high-grade PGE intervals, including:

  • 8 metres ("m") grading 2.05 grams per tonne palladium + platinum + gold ("g/t 2PGE+Au") from 1 m, including 3 m grading 4.70 g/t 2PGE+Au from 6 m , in Trado ® auger TR22IP58;
  • 6 m grading 3.60 g/t 2PGE+Au from 2 m, including 4 m grading 5.00 g/t 2PGE+Au from 4 m , in Trado ® auger TR22IP59;
  • 7.5 m grading 1.34 g/t 2PGE+Au from surface , in Trado ® auger TR22IP41;
  • 5.5 m grading 1.69 g/t 2PGE+Au from 1 m, including 1 m grading 4.73 g/t 2PGE+Au from 2 m , in Trado ® auger TR22IP39;
  • 2.5 m grading 1.78 g/t 2PGE+Au from surface, including 1 m grading 3.48 g/t 2PGE+Au from 1 m in Trado ® auger TR22IP55;
  • 1.5 m grading 1.35 g/t 2PGE+Au from surface , in Trado ® auger TR22IP61A;

Trado ® end of hole ("EOH") depths typically represent that the auger has entered impenetrable unweathered bedrock, so mineralization and ultra-mafic rocks ("UM") present at EOH remain open at depth and require follow-up core or RC drilling.

Ipueiras Target Exploration Program

The second phase of Trado ® auger drilling at Ipueiras was designed to follow-up on PGE high-grade mineralization reported from previous Trado ® holes and trenches of the Northeast and Southwest Zones, within the 2-km-long anomalous trend of Ipueiras Target (located 10 km south of the Trapia deposit area – 885,000 oz 2PGE+Au grading 0.96 g/t in 28.8 Mt).

32 follow up Trado ® auger holes were drilled, totaling 107 m. Target UM rocks were encountered in 19 Trado ® holes (68 m of the 107 m augered) with reported PGE mineralization 17 of 32 holes. See Table 1 below for a summary of significant Trado ® assay results from the second phase of the Trado ® program at Ipueiras.

A total of 67 Trado ® auger holes have been drilled in 2022 at the Northeast and Southwest Zones of Ipueiras, totaling 212 m augered, including 129.5 m of target UMs and PGE mineralization reported in 37 of 67 holes.

ValOre's exploration program at Ipueiras commenced with detailed geological mapping and prospecting throughout the 2-km-long anomalous trend, followed up with a first phase of Trado ® auger drilling (105 m), with reported PGE mineralization in 11 of 35 holes ( CLICK HERE for news release dated March 31, 2022).

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 continuity of PGE-bearing UM and UM-derived rocks along strike ( CLICK HERE for news release dated April 5, 2022), with two of four trenches returning 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;

At the Southwest Zone, highlights of historic and ValOre high-grade rock samples collected throughout the area include grades of over 40 g/t 2PGE+Au, correlative with the high-grade UMs and chromitite reefs exposed in trenches TR22IP01 and TR22IP02 at the Northeast Zone, which confirm extension of known PGE mineralization and exploration upside for an additional 2 km to the southwest of the existing historical core drilling and trenching area. See Figure 1 below for a plan map of the Ipueiras target and Figures 2 and 3 for detailed plan maps of the Northeast and Southwest Zones.

Follow-up trenching has commenced at the SW Zone to further delineate in-situ PGE mineralization at the southwestern extension of the 2-km-long PGE mineralized 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.
