Braveheart Resources Announces 2019 Exploration Program at Bull River Property

Braveheart Resources Inc announced that it has begun its 2019 exploration program at the Bull River Mine property. The program is fully funded. The initial focus of the program is on the former past producing Empire-Strathcona property which is located on the Company's 100% owned Bull River land package. The claims are underlain by Precambrian argillite and argillaceous quartzite of the Aldridge formation. The quartz siderite vein system has been exposed by two open cuts and two adits. Mineralization is primarily copper and silver. Mine geologists recently collected five grab samples from an upper adit, upper adit dump and an exposed rock cut. Assay results from these grab samples ranged from 0.22% to 7.10% copper. Detailed assay results from all grab samples can be reviewed in Table 1 below. It should be noted that grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property.

The Empire Strathcona property has been discussed in the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines, British Columbia for 1898,1929,1930 and 1937. In 1937 two grab samples were selected by the British Columbia Department of Mines engineer from the upper adit dump. The samples yielded grades of 8.9% and 4.2% copper from visible chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite. Government records indicate that in the 1930's mineralized material was transported from the lower adit of the mine, via a 580 m tram-line to the valley bottom and then to a smelter. There are no historical estimates for the tonnage and grade of mineralized material that was mined at the property.

As of mid-June 2019, a diamond drill has been mobilized to the site in proximity to the lower adit of the mine. The drill is targeting potential mineralization down dip and along strike of previous underground workings at the Empire Strathcona.
