Asiamet Res Ltd (ARS.L) Continues to Expand High Grade BKZ Deposit

Asiamet Continues to Expand High Grade BKZ Copper-Zinc-Precious Metals Deposit

Asiamet Resources Limited (“Asiamet” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from an additional two drill holes recently completed as part of the Company’s 2021 Resource extension drilling program at its 100% owned KSK Contract of Work (KSK CoW) located in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Nine holes (1,920.7 metres) of a planned 3,000 metre program have been completed to date with assay results pending for a further four holes. High grade Zn-Pb-Cu-Ag-Au mineralisation has been intersected in all five drill holes assayed to date, confirming significant extensions to the existing BKZ JORC Resource.

Highlights

· Two recently completed holes intersected wide intervals of high-grade polymetallic mineralisation, significantly extending the existing BKZ polymetallic deposit

· Holes were drilled to test for extensions of mineralisation to the north and east of the BKZ high-grade Zinc-Lead-Silver-Copper drill intercepts reported on 30 September 2021

· BKM and BKZ are now considered to be part of the same 3km long VHMS system with the BKZ deposit remaining open to the east, west, north and at depth.

· High confidence that ongoing drilling will to continue to expand mineral Inventory, mine life and economic value of the KSK licence.

Tony Manini, Asiamet’s Executive Chairman commented:

“Drilling to expand the Resource base at the BKZ deposit continues to deliver wide intervals of strong Zn-Cu-Pb-Ag-Au mineralisation in line with our enhanced geological understanding of the broader BKM-BKZ system. The two deposits at BKM and BKZ are now considered to be part of the same three kilometre long Volcanogenic Hosted Massive Sulphide (VHMS) System which remains open in most directions. Due to their polymetallic nature and high total metal content VHMS systems underpin some of the highest margin base metals mines globally. We are very pleased with the results received to date and highly confident that further drilling will continue to increase the mineral inventory adding significant mine life optionality and value to the BKM copper development project at this important time for the Company.”

BKZ Drilling

Hole BKZ33750-07 was drilled to test for depth extensions of the Upper Polymetallic Zone (UPZ) (Figure 1, Target 4) Zn-Pb-Cu mineralisation previously intersected in the bottom of drill hole BKZ33750-04 (10.5m @ 3.4% Zn) and where it was interpreted that drilling had been terminated early (Figure 2). BKZ33750-07 intersected three sections of continuous Zn-Pb-Cu between 65 and 128 metres.

· 19 metres @ 1.67% Zn, 0.72% Pb, 29 g/t Ag from 65 metres

· 7.3 metres @ 1.91% Cu, 1.32% Pb, 1.17% Zn, 45 g/t Ag, 0.4 g/t Au from 84 metres

· 32.25 metres @1.39 % Zn, 0.79% Cu, 0.57% Pb, 32 g/t Ag, 0.26 g/t Au from 95.75 metres

The metal zonation observed in the three separate lenses of mineralization on this section is typical of volcanogenic massive sulphide (VHMS) base metal deposits with increasing gold contents reflecting proximity to the higher temperature parts of the system. Zinc and copper grades appear to be increasing at depth to the north-east of the current BKZ Inferred Resource and remains open. Additional drilling is planned to further expand the mineralisation to the north and east of this section.

Hole BKZ33700-07 was drilled to test the eastern extent of Zn-Pb-Cu mineralisation intersected previously in drill holes BKZ33700-02, BKZ33700-05 and the lateral continuity of Zn-Pb-Cu mineralisation intersected in sections 9933650N and 9933750N.

Drilling intersected 31.5 metres @ 3.3% Zn, 1.6% Pb, 0.59% Cu, 44 g/t Ag, 0.29 g/t Au from 72.5 metres and confirms the continuity of strong mineralisation reported in drillholes BKZ33650-07 (34.5m @ 1.2% Cu) and BKZ33650-08 (34m @ 1.01% Cu) on section 9933650N (ARS news release 30 September 2021). Mineralisation on this section remains open to the east and additional drilling is planned.
