Torq Options Santa Cecilia Gold-Copper Project in Maricunga Belt in Chile

VANCOUVER, BC / October 21, 2021 / Torq Resources Inc. (TSX-V:TORQ) (OTCQX:TRBMF) ("Torq" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired an option to earn a 100% interest in the 3,250-hectare (32.5 square kilometre (km)) Santa Cecilia gold-copper project, located approximately 100 km east of the city of Copiapo in northern Chile. The project is in the southern region of the world-class Maricunga belt and immediately north of the El Indio belt (Figure 1). It is estimated that the Maricunga belt could host up to 90 million ounces of gold endowment. The belt is characterized by gold epithermal and gold - copper porphyry deposits that are Oligocene - Miocene in age, including world-class multi-million-ounce deposits such as Salares Norte, La Coipa, Cerro Maricunga, Marte, Lobo, La Pepa, El Volcan, Caspiche and Cerro Casale (Figure 1).
 
The Santa Cecilia project is located immediately adjacent to the Norte Abierto project, held by Newmont and Barrick, which is comprised of the Caspiche and Cerro Casale gold - copper porphyry deposits (Figure 2). Collectively, these deposits contain proven and probable reserves of 23.2 million (M) ounces of gold and 5.8 billion (B) pounds of copper and measured and indicated resources of 26.6 M ounces of gold and 6.7 B pounds of copper. Limited historical exploration work at Santa Cecilia was performed by the previous operator, a major international mining company ("previous operator"), in 1988 - 1990, when it drilled 47 holes, totaling approximately 14,000 metres (m), and completed 1,200 m of exploration tunnel development that clearly defined epithermal gold and gold - silver mineralization as well as gold - copper porphyry mineralization at surface and shallow depths, respectively.

Emerita Intersects 8.2 Meters Grading 2.5% Copper, 17.3% Zinc, 8.7% Lead, 223.5g/t Silver, 0.5g/t Gold in Initial Step-Out Drill Hole at La Infanta Drill Program

TORONTO, Oct. 22, 2021  -- Emerita Resources Corp. (TSX – V: EMO; OTC: EMOTF) (the “Company” or “Emerita”) announces that it has received complete assays for the first step-out drill hole from the Infanta drill program as well as the final in-fill drill holes. The in-fill program has verified the historical drill results and will allow proper 3D modelling of the deposit along with providing fresh material that can be used for future metallurgical testing.   Both drills are now stepping out to expand the deposit. Please see Figure 1 below for drill hole locations and Table 1 below for assays and drill hole coordinates.  
 
Drill hole IN018 intersected 8.2 meters grading 2.5% copper, 8.7% lead, 17.3% zinc and 223.5 g/t silver and 0.5 g/t gold from 59.4 meters. This is 40 meter step out to the west of the historical limits of the deposit. In addition, hole IN023 which is located approximately 50 m west hole IN018 of the deposit has intersected two zones of massive sulfide (assays pending). The only other hole where the deeper second zone is intersected is in hole IN017 which is 300 meters east and this area is open for extension of the mineralization to depth.
There is a strong TEM conductor extending at least 300 meters to the west from hole IN018 (to the edge of the current survey coverage) as well as some shallow historical workings that provide strong evidence the deposit will extend in that direction.

Torq Defines Drill Targets at the Margarita Copper-Gold Project in Chile

VANCOUVER, BC / September 8, 2021 / Torq Resources Inc. (TSXV:TORQ)(OTCQX:TRBMF) ("Torq" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has identified three primary target areas at the Margarita Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) project in northern Chile that form the basis for the upcoming 4,000 metre (m) reverse circulation (RC) drill program, slated to begin later this month (Figure 1). The targets were defined using data from recent geophysical and geochemical surveys as well as a geological mapping program.
 
A Message from Shawn Wallace, Executive Chairman:
 
"The refinement of drill targets at the Margarita project has our entire team excited about the prospectivity of the project and the real opportunity to make a major new discovery in one of the best jurisdictions for mining on the planet.
