Murchison Minerals Ltd announced it is initiating a diamond drilling program on its 430 km2 Brabant-McKenzie project land package where previous airborne geophysical surveys identified numerous strong electromagnetic conductors. Thirty of these EM conductors were ground prospected in 2019 with 12 conductors selected as high priority targets to be drilled with 14 drill holes starting in late January 2020. In addition, the Company identified an additional 20 EM conductors on the claims recently staked by the Company following the evaluation of historic airborne geophysical survey data. These conductors will be subject to further ground prospecting in the summer of 2020.

Murchison's land holdings already host the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit with a NI 43-101 resources of
Indicated - 2.1 million tonnes at 7.08% zinc, 0.69% copper, 0.49% lead, 39.60 g/t silver
Inferred -7.6 million tonnes at 4.45% zinc, 0.57% copper, 0.19% lead, 18.40 g/t silver

The Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit geophysical characteristics consist of moderate to strong magnetic high with a coincident moderately strong conductor.

Targets 1, 13, 14, 8, 6 and 4 are interpreted to be located within the same geological horizon as the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit. Target 1 is located immediately south of the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit. A recent backpack drill hole intersected strong zinc mineralisation at shallow depth. The remaining targets are located east of the interpreted deposit horizon.
