Vanstar Reports Remaining Assay Results from 2021 Drill Program at Nelligan - Confirms Mineralization up to 1.5 km to the West of Resource

Vanstar Reports Remaining Assay Results from 2021 Drill Program at Nelligan - Confirms Mineralization up to 1.5 km to the West of Resource

Highlight Holes:
Hole NE-21-184 - 20.0 m of 2.02 g/t Au and 10.5 m of 1.11 g/t Au
Hole NE-21-182 - 30.6 m of 1.15 g/t Au
Hole NE-21-176 - 11.8 m of 4.44 g/t Au and 7 m of 2.21 g/t Au and 19.5 m of 1.44 g/t Au

Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR) (OTCQX: VMNGF) (FSE: 1V8) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce the remaining assay results from the 2021 diamond drill program consisting of 9,492 meters in 27 holes on the Nelligan joint venture project (IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD"): 75%, Vanstar: 25%) completed by its partner IAMGOLD. The Company is reporting assays from the remaining 14 diamond drill holes totaling 5,232 meters completed in the western extension of the deposit. The 2020 drill program extended the mineralized zone by 700 m beyond the resource that was modelled in 2019. Current results from 2021 drilling, summarized in Table 1 and 2 below, indicate that the mineralization continues further to the west, although the zones appear to be thinning with locally improved grades. Hole NE-21-190, for example, located 1,100 m to the west of the current resource intercepted 9 m grading 3 gt Au and the most western hole (NE-21-188) intercepted 6 m grading 2.63 gt Au, 1.5 km from the 2019 pit shell.

2022 Exploration Program

The winter drilling program at Nelligan is progressing with approximately half of the planned 6,000 meters drilled to date. This drill program is designed to expand the existing resource at depth, with 5 to 6 holes planned below the pit shell with target depths of 500 meters on average, as well as to test targets along strike both to the east and west of the current resource. Results from this program, along with the 2020 and 2021 results, will be incorporated into the drill hole database once they are validated and compiled. IAMGOLD announced on December 16, 2021 that it intends to provide an updated resource for the Nelligan project towards the end of 2022.

Piche Resources Poised to Supply North American, Western European Utilities, Exec Says

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Piche Resources Executive Chairman John Simpson stressed the need for diversity of supply from much more friendly jurisdictions to ensure security. Citing the company’s promising assets in Australia and Argentina, he said Piche will play an important role in the critical metals supply chain.

“We saw both China and Russia politicise or militarise their commodities … I think that's created an enormous awareness (for) the need for diversity of supply from much more friendly jurisdictions (and) ensuring security (of supply),” he said.

“Being a company that has critical metals and energy in locations like Australia and Argentina, if we can supply the quantities, the volume within the first quartile of costs, we will be a very attractive supplier to North American and Western European utilities.”
