VANCOUVER, May 5, 2021 - Western Atlas Resources Inc. ("Western Atlas" or the "Company") (TSXV: WA), is pleased to release additional results from the previously announced winter logging and sampling program conducted at its Meadowbank Gold Project located in Nunavut, Canada (see company's press release dated January 25, 2021).

Additional sampling results provide for new potential for Nickel and Polymetallic mineralization on the property in addition to geological settings like banded iron formation (BIF) and shear zones favourable for the development of orogenic gold deposits in the area.

Holes WA20-004 and WA20-005 are part of the 2020 diamond drill program, the first ever completed on the Company's Meadowbank properties which consisted of 13 drill holes for a total of 3,545 meters drilled in Target B1, Block B, south of and contiguous to Agnico Eagle's Meadowbank mine property and Greyhound project. Target B1 is only one of numerous targets for follow up with drilling so far identified within Blocks A, B and C.

Fabio Capponi, CEO stated: "Zone 2 and Zone 5 in Block B, Target B1 continue to deliver exciting results and demonstrate the tremendous potential of the Meadowbank properties for potential gold and silver discoveries and also for mineralization for the metals of the future such as nickel, cobalt and base metals. Target B1 is only one of numerous targets for follow up with drilling so far identified within Blocks A, B and C."

Table 1: Drill Holes Results

Note: With regard to Hole WA20-004 and WA20-005, all samples were analyzed using Aqua Regia digestion with ICP-OES finish + ICP-MS following Sodium Peroxide fusion digestion. Hole WA20-006, -01 and -013 were analyzed using Aqua Regia digestion with ICP-OES finish. Western Atlas may also decide to analyze prospective Holes WA20-003, WA20-004, WA20-005, WA20-006, WA20-011 and WA20-013 for Platinum and Palladium.

Zone 2

Zone 2 is underlain by a volcanic-sedimentary assemblage composed of komatiitic flows, massive ultramafic volcaniclastics and intercalated fine-grained clastic sediments (argillites and siltstones), bounded by a BIF sequence over 100 m in thickness to the north. Sediments within this assemblage, particularly argillite layers, host a significant pyrite±pyrrhotite mineralization. (for more details please refer to the Company's press release issued on November 30, 2020).

Ultramafic members of the assemblage are usually intensely serpentinized or talk-serpentine altered. Nickel and base metals mineralization are found mainly in serpentinized ultramafic flows as very fine-grained disseminated sulphides (pyrite, pyrrhotite and pentlandite) and oxides (magnetite, chromite and ilmenite). In rare cases (i.e. in WA20-005 at 17.80-18.80 with 0.9% Ni) sulphides form clots up to 10mm across interpreted as relict sulphide droplets.

Zone 5

Located within the E-NE trending ultramafic corridor defined by the E-NE trending shear zone and BIF lenses mapped in Zone 1 to the east and Zone 4 to the west. The corridor is over 4.5km long. Hole WA20-011 intersected 170m long ultramafic assemblage composed of alternating ultramafic pyroclastics and massive intrusive ultramafic intervals. Ultramafic assemblage is bounded by mafic volcanics to the south and intermediary volcanics to the north. Intercalated within the ultramafic assemblage is a 8.50m long interval of interlaminated chert and argillite. Locally developed foliation and contacts are apparently sub-vertical. With vertical contacts, the true thickness of the ultramafic assemblage is approximately 110m.

Geological setting with mafic volcanics to the south and intermediary volcanics to the north is similar to Zone 1 setting. Ultramafic pyroclastics and chert interlaminated with black argillite encountered in Hole WA20-011 are markedly similar to the equivalent lithologies in Zone 2.

Base metals mineralization occurs as very fine-grained disseminated sulphides (pyrite and pentlandite) and oxides (magnetite, chromite and ilmenite).

QA / QC Protocols

Individual drill core samples were sawn in half, labeled, placed in plastic sample bags, and sealed. The remaining drill core is securely stored in Baker Lake. Samples were placed in bags sealed with uniquely numbered security tags and shipped directly to Activation Laboratories Ltd. ("Actlabs") in Ancaster, Ontario for analysis. The Actlabs facility is accredited to ISO 17025:2017 standards and to the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) Requirements and Guidance for the Accreditation of Testing Laboratories.

Samples were weighed then crushed to a nominal 2 mm (10 mesh), mechanically split to obtain a representative sample (250 g) and then pulverized (mid steel) to at least 95% passing 105 microns (?m). Multi-element analysis package determined 38 elements including copper, zinc, lead and silver assays were determined by Aqua Regia digestion with ICP-OES finish. Gold (30g sample of the pulverized material) was analyzed by fire assay fusion with AAS finish. Company QA/QC included the insertion and continual monitoring of standards, blanks, and duplicates.
