Xtract Resources plc (AIM:XTR) Bushranger Project Assay Results

The Board of Xtract Resources Plc (“Xtract” or the “Company”) is pleased to advise that independent laboratory assays have been received for two further drill holes, BRDD-22-031 and BRDD-22-038 from the Phase 2 diamond drilling programme at the Bushranger copper-gold exploration project.

Highlights

· Full results are available in Tables 1 and 2, with best results including;

· 12m at 0.88% CuEq from 600m in BRDD-21-031

· 104m at 0.24% CuEq from 79m in BRDD-21-038

· 8m at 1.46% CuEq from 175m in BRDD-21-038

· 2m at 2.3 g/t Au from 589m in BRDD-21-038

· Both of these drill holes have so far defined the along-strike extension of the Ascot mineralisation by up to 675m, with further results expected shortly

· Drill hole BRDD-21-031 was drilled 475m along-strike to the north from the discovery hole (BRDD-21-035) at the Ascot prospect. Results include a 52m interval at 0.27% CuEq which displays a strong correlation with the intercept of 52m at 0.21% CuEq in drill hole BRDD-22-044 (see announcement 10 May), which is along-strike to the south and sits between BRDD-21-031 and BRDD-21-035

· Drill hole BRDD-21-038 was drilled 200m to the south from the discovery hole (BRDD-21-035) at Ascot and intercepted a 104m interval at 0.24% CuEq from a shallow depth of 79m. Below this, near vertical mineralised structures were intersected which contain up to 2m at 2.3 g/t Au

· This hole offers the potential for significant intervals of along-strike copper mineralisation to extend close to surface at Ascot, upgrading the open pit potential of the prospect.

Colin Bird, Executive Chairman said: “I am pleased that we are adding real strike to the Ascot deposit and increasing our understanding of the system. Both holes intersected mineralisation and once again short interval gold intercepts were encountered, indicating a good potential for gold at Ascot.

Modelling continues at the project, with the Racecourse prospect indicating that it has grades and tonnes justifying a rework of the conceptual open pit.”

Drill hole BRDD-21-031 was drilled at an inclination of -060 degrees towards the WSW and was completed at a final depth of 690.4m. The drill hole intersected a 52m interval of 0.27% CuEq from a downhole depth of 586m which shows a strong correlation with the intercept of 52m at 0.21% CuEq from 388m down hole depth in drill hole BRDD-22-044 (see announcement dated 10 May 2022). Drill hole BRDD-21-031 likely represents the northerly extension of the Ascot mineralisation 475m along-strike from the discovery drill hole BRDD-21-035.

Drill hole BRDD-21-038 was drilled 200m to the south from the Ascot discovery hole at an inclination of -50 degrees towards the west and completed at a final depth of 659.6m. The drill hole intersected a wide 104m interval of 0.24% CuEq from a relatively shallow downhole depth of 79m, which included two higher grade intervals of 10m at 0.35% CuEq from 101m downhole and 8m at 1.46% CuEq from 175m downhole. At greater depths in the hole a number of vertical mineralised vein structures were recorded with high copper equivalent and gold values. This hole offers the potential for significant intervals of along-strike copper mineralisation to extend close to surface at Ascot, upgrading the open pit potential of the prospect.
