Regulus Resources Inc announced the results from six additional drill holes from the Phase II drill program, the aim of which is to expand and infill resources at the Company’s AntaKori copper-gold project in northern Peru. The drilling campaign is underway in collaboration with Compañía Minera Coimolache SA, the operator of the Tantahuatay gold mine immediately to the south of the AntaKori project. Hole AK-19-039 successfully extended and expanded the zone of base metal carbonate mineralization (contains higher grade gold and silver than the rest of the known deposit), which was previously encountered in holes AK-19-026, AK-18-025 and AK-18-023. Hole AK-19-041 demonstrates the downward continuity of previously released holes AK-19-034 and AK-19-037, while hole AK-19-042 demonstrates the upward continuity of previously released hole AK-19-035. Holes AK-19-038, AK-19-040 and AK-19-043 infilled a gap in the resource model on the eastern edge of the property and ultimately defined the eastern limits of the skarn style mineralization, all of which will help with our goal of defining the overall footprint of the orebody.

Highlights from drill holes AK-19-038 through AK-19-043 - AntaKori Project:

AK-19-039:
168.75 m of 0.38% Cu, 0.65 g/t Au and 32.69 g/t Ag (1.15% CuEq) from 111.45 m
Including 14.10 m of 0.95% Cu, 0.8 g/t Au and 24.92 g/t Ag (1.75% CuEq) from 246.60 m
51.50 m of 0.21% Cu, 0.55 g/t Au and 5.38 g/t Ag (0.65% CuEq) from 383.60
Including 12.15 m of 0.38% Cu, 1.02 g/t Au and 10.37 g/t Ag (1.20% CuEq)
Represents discovery of multiple wide zones of base metal carbonate style epithermal mineralization with significant precious metal content
Provides new targets to follow up with future drilling

AK-19-041:
341.00 m of 0.57% Cu, 0.28 g/t Au and 9.29 g/t Ag (0.85% CuEq) from 202.00 m
Including 64.15 m of 1.71% Cu, 0.79 g/t Au and 13.89 g/t Ag (2.40% CuEq) hosted within a high-sulphidation epithermal zone overprinting skarn
172.13 m of 0.35% Cu, 0.14 g/t Au and 4.11 g/t Ag (0.48% CuEq) from 575.95 m
Including 52.00 m of 0.51% Cu, 0.22 g/t Au and 8.35 g/t Ag (0.75% CuEq) hosted in a high-sulphidation epithermal overprint
539.43 m of 0.41% Cu, 0.09 g/t Au and 2.59 g/t Ag (0.50% CuEq) from 1040.10 m
Intersected mineralization and grades as expected, similar to the results previously reported for AK-19-034 (which was drilled from the same platform)

AK-19-042:
417.40 m of 0.23% Cu, 0.13 g/t Au and 3.90 g/t Ag (0.35% CuEq) from 470.60 m
87.35 m of 0.21% Cu, 0.12 g/t Au and 3.12 g/t Ag (0.32% CuEq) from 929.35 m
Hosted predominantly in low arsenic skarn and porphyry mineralization

AK-19-038:
15.38 m of 2.14% Cu, 0.38 g/t Au and 24.96 g/t Ag (2.63% CuEq) from 374.82 m

AK-19-040:
15.30 m of 0.77% Cu, 0.18 g/t Au and 7.89 g/t Ag (0.97% CuEq) from 370.60 m

AK-19-043:
22.50 m of 0.93% Cu, 0.33 g/t Au and 11.71 g/t Ag (1.27% CuEq) from 290.80 m
