Equity Metals Company (TSXV: EQTY) (“Fairness”) experiences immediately high-grade gold intercepts from two verification drill holes that examined the prevailing block mannequin for the No. 3 Vein on the Silver Queen property, British Columbia. Intercepts embrace:
a 0.7 metre down-hole interval (0.6m est. True Thickness) averaging 23.8g/t Au, 8g/t Ag and 0.5% Zn (24.2g/t AuEq or 1,814g/t AgEq) inside a broader 5.1 metre interval (4.7m est. TT) averaging 4.4g/t Au, 54g/t Ag and a couple of.5% Zn (6.5g/t AuEq or 485g/t AgEq) from drill gap SQ20-005;
a 0.6m down-hole interval (0.6m est TT) grading 13.3g/t Au, 800g/t Ag, 4% Pb and 11.4% Zn (9.6g/t AuEq or 719g/t AgEq) inside a broader 2.8m down-hole interval (2.6m est TT) averaging 3.3g/t Au, 177g/t Ag, 0.9% Pb and a couple of.7% Zn (7.4g/t AuEq or 556g/t AgEq) from drill gap SQ20-006 that happens within the hangingwall of the No. 3 Vein; and
a 0.6 metre down-hole interval (0.5m est TT) grading 12.9g/t Au, 352g/t Ag and a couple of.4% Zn (19.2g/t AuEq or 1439g/t AgEq) inside a broader 3.9 metre interval (3.6m est TT) averaging 2.8g/t Au, 121g/t Ag and three.4% Zn (6.8g/t AuEq or 514g/t AgEq) from drill gap SQ20-006.
Drill holes SQ20-005 and SQ20-006 are verification holes designed to check each the continuity and grade of mineralization throughout the current block mannequin that was used to ascertain the NI43-101 Mineral Useful resource Estimate on the Property (see information launch NR-07-19, dated July 19, 2019). The upper-grade intercept in drill gap SQ20-005 is in step with the anticipated thickness and grade predicted by the block mannequin and types a part of a broader 14.8 metre alteration zone of anomalous gold-silver-zinc averaging 2.5g/t AuEq. The mineralization in drill gap SQ20-006 is larger grade than that predicted by the block mannequin, confirms continuity of the present useful resource, and verifies a higher-grade hangingwall zone than was predicted by the mannequin. The decrease zone terminates in a fault and anomalous gold-silver values have been recognized within the footwall.
Assay outcomes from a 3rd gap, SQ20-004, which examined the No. 3 Vein 150 metres down-dip of the recognized mineral useful resource and on the identical part as drill gap SQ20-005, intersected a 0.5m interval grading 2.3g/t Au, 46g/t Ag, and 1.1% Zn (3.6g/t AuEq or 267g/t AgEq) inside a broader 42m interval of anomalous gold-silver-zinc. The intercept confirms the downdip projection of the No. 3 Vein, opening a completely new part of the Quantity 3 vein to be examined beneath the present mineral useful resource and above drill gap SQ20-004.
These are the outcomes of the primary three of 5 holes that examined the No. 3 Vein throughout the Firm’s 2020 Part I drill program on the Silver Queen Property. Assay outcomes are nonetheless pending from drill holes SQ20-007 and SQ20-008, which examined the No 3 Vein goal.

Further Encouraging Assays on the Camp Vein
Fairness additionally experiences that extra assay outcomes have been acquired from the Camp Vein, together with two mineralized intervals from drill gap SQ20-003, which returned:
a 1.2 metre down-hole interval averaging 972g/t Ag, 0.1g/t Au, 0.4% Pb and 0.6% Zn (13.6g/t AuEq or 1,021g/t AgEq), which prolonged mineralization of a beforehand reported mineralized interval to 11.1 metres averaging 356g/t Ag, 0.4g/t Au, 1% Pb and a couple of.3% Zn (7.0g/t AuEq or 522g/t AgEq); and
a 1.7 metre down-hole interval averaging 439g/t Ag, 0.1g/t Au, 0.4% Pb and 1.5% Zn (6.9g/t AuEq or 518g/t AgEq).
Further assay outcomes from drill gap SQ20-009, which examined the Camp Vein goal are pending and can be launched upon receipt.
2020 Part II Drill Program Accomplished, Assays Pending
Part II drilling on the property was concluded in late December. This system consisted of eight drill holes totalling 1,948 metres and examined the instant space round bonanza-grade mineralization recognized in drill gap SQ20-010 (4.4m averaging 4,632g/t Ag and 0.2g/t Au, 0.4% Pb and 1.2% Zn) on the northwestern finish of the vein system, deeper testing within the central a part of the vein system, and shallow checks of the No 5 Vein. Drilling examined as much as 150 metres beneath floor on the Camp Vein, which has seen, to this point, minimal drilling.
2021 Part III Drill Program to Start Late January
The Firm additionally plans a Part III, 4,000 metre drill program, which can step out from high-grade gold-enriched mineralization within the No. 3 and NG-3 veins, with drilling anticipated to start out in late January 2021.

About Silver Queen Undertaking
The Silver Queen Undertaking is a premier gold-silver property with over 100 years of historic exploration and improvement positioned adjoining to energy, roads and rail with important mining infrastructure that was developed below earlier operators: Bradina JV (Bralorne Mines); and Houston Metals Corp. (a Hunt Brothers firm). The property comprises an historic decline into the No. 3 Vein, camp infrastructure and a maintained Tailings Facility.
The Silver Queen Property consists of 45 mineral claims, 17 crown grants, and two floor crown grants totalling 18,852ha with no underlying royalties. Mineralization is hosted by a sequence of epithermal veins distributed over a 6 sq km space. Many of the current useful resource is hosted by the No. 3 Vein, which is traced by drilling for roughly 1.2km to the southeast the place it transitions into the NG-3 Vein near the Itsit porphyry space.
An preliminary NI43-101 Mineral Useful resource Estimate (see Observe 2 beneath) was detailed in a Information Launch issued on July sixteenth, 2019, and utilizing a CDN$100 NSR cut-off, reported a useful resource of:
Indicated – 244,000ozs AuEq: 85,000ozs Au, 5.2Mozs Ag, 5Mlbs Cu, 17Mlbs Pb and 114Mlbs Zn; and
Inferred – 193,000ozs AuEq: 64,000ozs Au, 4.7Mozs Ag, 5Mlbs Cu, 16Mlbs Pb and 92Mlbs Zn.
Over 20 totally different vein buildings have been recognized on the property, forming an intensive community of zoned Cretaceous- to Tertiary-age epithermal veins. The property stays largely below explored.

- George Cross Information letter No.61 (1996). Useful resource is historic in nature and is supplied by the corporate for data functions solely. It has not been verified by the corporate and shouldn’t be handled as a Mineral Useful resource Estimate.
- The 2019 Silver Queen Useful resource Estimate was ready following CIM definitions for classification of Mineral Sources and recognized at a CDN$100/NSR cut-off, an indicated useful resource of 815Kt averaging 3.2g/t Au, 201g/t Ag, 1.0% Pb, 6.4% Zn and 0.26% Cu and an inferred useful resource of 801Kt averaging 2.5g/t Au, 184g/t Ag, 0.9% Pb, 5.2% Zn and 0.31% Cu. Grade capping on Ag and Zn was carried out on 0.75m to 1.24m size composites. Au, Cu and Pb required no capping. ID3 was utilized for grade interpolation for Au and Ag whereas ID2 was utilized for Cu, Pb and Zn. Grade blocks have been interpreted inside constraining mineralized domains utilizing and array of 3m x 1m x 3m blocks within the mannequin. A bulk density of three.56 t/m³ was used for all tonnage calculations. Approximate US$ two-year trailing common steel costs as follows have been used: Au $1,300/oz, Ag $17/oz, Cu $3/lb, Pb $1.05/lb and Zn $1.35/lb with an alternate charge of US$0.77=C$1.00.
The C$100/tonne NSR cut-off grade worth for the underground Mineral Useful resource was derived from mining prices of C$70/t, with course of prices of C$20/t and G&A of C$10/t. Course of recoveries used have been Au 79%, Ag 80%, Cu 81%, Pb 75% and Zn 94%. AuEq and AgEq are primarily based on the method: NSR (CDN) = (Cu% * $57.58) + (Pb% * $19.16) + (Zn% * $30.88) +(Au g/t * $39.40) + (Ag g/t * $0.44) – $78.76.
Mineral Sources usually are not Mineral Reserves, wouldn’t have demonstrated financial viability and could also be materially affected by environmental, allowing, authorized, title, taxation, socio-political, advertising and marketing, or different related points. Inferred Mineral Sources have a decrease degree of confidence than Indicated Mineral Sources and is probably not transformed to a Mineral Reserve however could also be upgraded to an Indicated Mineral Useful resource with continued exploration. The Mineral Sources have been estimated utilizing the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Requirements on Mineral Sources and Reserves, Definitions and Tips.
The Mineral Useful resource Estimate was ready by Eugene Puritch, P.Eng., FEC, CET and Yungang Wu, P.Geo., of P&E Mining Consultants Inc. (“P&E”) of Brampton, Ontario, Unbiased Certified Individuals (“QP”), as outlined by Nationwide Instrument 43-101. P&E Mining means that an underground mining state of affairs is acceptable for the mission at this stage and has advisable a CDN$100/tonne NSR cut-off worth for the base-case useful resource estimate.
