CORRECTION FROM SOURCE: Nine Mile Metals Announces Drill Hole WD-24-08 Certified Assay Results of 1.34% Copper Equivalent (Cu-Eq) over 44.00m Including 3.73% (Cu-Eq) over 12.00m and 4.57% (Cu-Eq) over 9.00m

This document corrects and replaces the press release that was issued by Nine Mile Metals Ltd., earlier today. The error occurred in the subheader for Table 2, where it should have read, "TABLE 2: UPPER ZONE - Certified Assays of 12.00m Intersection (37.00m - 49.00m)" instead of "(123.00m - 138.50m)".

Vancouver, May 21, 2024 - Nine Mile Metals Ltd. (CSE: NINE) (OTCQB: VMSXF) (FSE: KQ9) (the "Company" or "Nine Mile") is pleased to announce it has received certified assays for drill hole WD-24-08 at The Wedge VMS drill target situated in the renowned Bathurst Mining Camp, New Brunswick (BMC).


  • Drill hole WD-24-08 was collared along the southern flank of The Wedge deposit within the footwall sediments, utilizing the same drill pad as drill hole WD-24-01, and drilled at an azimuth of 10 degrees and a dip of -45 degrees to a total depth of 175.5m.
  • The drill hole successfully intersected Cu, Pb, Zn, Au, and Ag mineralization between 37.00m and 81.00m (44.00m) assaying 0.47% Cu, 0.89% Pb, 1.54% Zn, 0.18 g/t Au and 15.35 g/t Ag with a Cu-Eq of 1.34%.
  • Two distinct zones of visible sulphide mineralization were intersected, including the:
    • UPPER ZONE (37.00m - 49.00m): 12.00m assaying 0.95% Cu, 3.06% Pb, 4.95% Zn, 0.55g/t Au, and 48.00 g/t Ag with a Cu-Eq of 3.73%. The Upper Zone includes:
      • 9.00m of pyritic VMS (37.00m - 46.00m) assaying 0.93% Cu, 4.08% Pb, 6.45% Zn, 0.71 g/t Au, and 63.35 g/t Ag, with a Cu-Eq of 4.57%.
      • 10.50m of pyritic VMS (38.50m - 49.00m) assaying 1.00% Cu, 3.30% Pb, 5.40 % Zn, 0.52 g/t Au, and 49.00 g/t Ag, with a Cu-Eq of 3.94%.
    • LOWER ZONE (75.00m - 81.00m): 6.00m assaying 1.18% Cu, 0.05% Pb, 0.36% Zn, 0.09 g/t Au, and 8.00 g/t Ag with a Cu-Eq of 1.42%.

Copper Equivalent (Cu-Eq) for drill intersections is calculated based on May 13, 2024, pricing. US$ 4.75/ lb. Cu, US$ 1.02 / lb. Pb., S$ 1.36 lb. Zn, $ 28.48 /oz Ag, and US$ 2,343/oz Au with 80% metallurgical recoveries assumed for all metals. (Since it's unclear what metals will be the principal products, assuming different recoveries is premature at this stage. As such, an 80% recovery rate is justified at this point in time).

In the southern portion of the Wedge Deposit, the drill hole cut the footwall argillite, followed by brecciated felsic volcanics with pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena, and sphalerite mineralization. The style of mineralization is quite different in the south, locally highlighted by the presence of banded to massive, blebby chalcopyrite and sphalerite.

"Drill hole WD-24-08 included visibly abundant lead and zinc mineralization with the increased presence of galena (Pb sulphide) reflected in the higher silver assays as seen in the samples in Table 2, with assays up to 142.00 g/t Ag. Fire assay gold was elevated, reaching up to 1.1g/t Au. Intersections seen in drill hole WD-24-08 demonstrate the multi-element potential of the system," commented Gary Lohman, P.Geo., VP Exploration & Director.

Patrick J. Cruickshank, MBA, CEO & Director stated, "We are pleased to continue releasing drill results that support our objective of proving the eastern proposed extension of unmined ore and expanding The Wedge Deposit's footprint to re-evaluate its economics. Hole WD-24-08 was a solid VMS hole, displaying very strong copper and silver with good lead-zinc mineralization. Through reviewing the five announced drill holes to date on The Wedge program and the upcoming 73 newly received digitized Cominco historic surface hole data (assays and lithology), along with 110 underground holes, combined with our announced BHEM at the Wedge, we are going to be able to evaluate and execute phase 2 on this high-priority project in our western portfolio of targets. We look forward to our next release in our 2024 exploration program. We are finalizing our summer program at other high priority targets, including California Lake Hole #10, Wedge North Target #6, and The West Wedge and Tri Bag trend targets."
