VANCOUVER, BC - March 8, 2021 / Torq Resources Inc. (TSXV:TORQ)(OTCQX:TRBMF) ("Torq" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has successfully acquired the option to earn a 100% interest in the Margarita Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) project located in Chile, 65 kilometres (km) north of the city of Copiapo. The property is located within the prolific Coastal Cordillera belt that hosts the world-class Candelaria (Lundin Mining Corp.) and Manto Verde (Mantos Copper Holding) IOCG mines, and porphyry-skarn deposits such as Santo Domingo (Capstone Mining Corp.) and Inca de Oro (PanAust/Codelco) (Figure 1).
A Message from Shawn Wallace, Executive Chair & Director:
"Margarita is the first in what will be a series of acquisitions of high-quality copper-gold exploration projects with district scale potential in Chile, which hosts some of the world's largest and most profitable copper mines.

Chakana Copper Accelerates Drill Program with Second Rig, Provides Exploration Update at Soledad, Peru

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 18, 2021) - Chakana Copper Corp. (TSXV: PERU) (OTCQB: CHKKF) (FSE: 1ZX) (the "Company" or "Chakana"), has added a second drill rig to its Soledad project located in Ancash, Peru in order to accelerate both the exploration and resource drilling programs. The Board of Directors has approved an expanded 26,000m drill program for the 2021 calendar year, with 16,000m of resource drilling for inclusion in the Company's Soledad maiden resource estimate expected later this year. Resource drilling will focus on recent discoveries at Paloma East, Paloma West, and Huancarama (Fig. 1). Resource drilling is expected to also be completed on Breccia 7 (Bx 7), a previous discovery announced in 2019 (see news release dated July 29, 2019). An additional 10,000m of scout drilling will be allocated to test numerous high quality exploration targets that have already been identified. Resource definition drilling includes both step-out and in-fill core holes in close proximity to known mineralization of possible economic interest.
Currently, one drill rig continues to conduct scout drilling on the west side of the Huancarama Breccia Complex where recent drilling has confirmed a blind breccia pipe immediately north of the H5 breccia body exposed at surface (Fig. 2). A total of twenty-five drill holes have now been completed at Huancarama. Once scout drilling is completed, this drill rig will focus on resource definition drilling at Huancarama. The second drill rig has been deployed to the Paloma area where resource drilling has been initiated at Paloma East (Fig. 3). Resource drilling is also planned for Paloma West, and additional exploration drilling will be conducted in the greater Paloma area. A third drill rig dedicated to exploration drilling is scheduled to arrive on the property in early April 2021.

Within 93m of 1.63 g/t Au, 0.95% Cu, and 129.2 g/t Ag (4.77 g/t Au-Eq) from 117m
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 9, 2021) -  Chakana Copper Corp. (TSXV: PERU) (OTCQB: CHKKF) (FSE: 1ZX) (the "Company" or "Chakana"), is pleased to release results for two additional drill holes with the highest-grade intercepts reported to date from the Huancarama Breccia Complex, within the Soledad Project in Ancash, Peru (Fig. 1). These holes complement the initial ten holes previously published (see news releases dated January 12, 2021, and January 25, 202). Twenty-two HQ diamond core holes have been completed thus far with continued success expanding the mineralized breccia at Huancarama.
Mineralized intervals from two additional holes at Huancarama include:

District Commences Ground Gravity Survey over the Tomtebo Mine Trend

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 9, 2020  - District Metals Corp. (TSXV: DMX) (FRA: DFPP); ("District" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a ground gravity survey has commenced on the Tomtebo Property located in the Bergslagen Mining District in south-central Sweden. This gravity survey is focused on the Tomtebo Mine Trend (Figure 1) that was delineated by numerous conductive and magnetic high anomalies identified from the July 2020 SkyTEM survey.
Garrett Ainsworth, CEO of District, commented: "We continue to follow our approach of systematic modern exploration at the Tomtebo Property with the commencement of a ground gravity survey over the Tomtebo Mine Trend. This is the first time Tomtebo has ever seen a ground gravity survey, which is surprising given its proven effectiveness in identifying significant massive sulphide deposits within other districts. The large density differential between the surrounding host felsic volcanic rocks, and targeted massive sulphide mineralization on Tomtebo offers another important layer of geophysical data that we will utilize to prioritize drilling within the Tomtebo Mine Trend."
