Barrian Mining Corp has reported analytical results for from the first, 2019 hole drilled at the Uncle Sam Prospect from the recently completed 1,838 metre reverse circulation drilling program at its flagship Bob Gold-Silver Project. Hole BL19-09 intersected high-grade silver, yielding 148 g/t silver (1.77 g/t gold equivalent) over 4.6 metres within a broader zone of 74.9 g/t silver (0.90 g/t gold equivalent2) over 22.9 metres. The Uncle Sam Zone lies 500 metres south of the South Mine Fault Zone. A new 2019 rock grab sample collected between the zones yielded 3.63 g/t gold with 262 g/t silver in outcrop in an area with no prior sampling. The new drill hole and surface sample provides opportunity for continuity of mineralization along a 500 metre strike length within the 1.2 kilometre Bob Trend. Maximilian Sali, CEO and Co-Founder, said "We are pleased to add another significant intercept that further expands the footprint of silver and gold mineralization. The 2019 drilling program has surpassed our expectations, drilling and surface sampling further reinforces our interpretation that the two zones are connected along strike. The high-grade silver at Uncle Sam Zone may be related to deep silver mineralization at the South Mine Fault Zone. The full strike potential at the Bolo Project has not yet been realized."

These intercepts extend high grade silver mineralization at Uncle Sam approximately 50 to 75 metres vertically below surface channel rock chip samples, including 3,146 g/t silver and 1.0 g/t gold over 2.6 metres and 365 g/t silver and 1.9 g/t gold over 3.6 metres3; and 20 metres north along strike in the subsurface from previous drill hole BL-54, which intersected 94.3 g/t silver over 21.3 metres, including 251 g/t silver over 6.1 metres. Hole BL19-09, drilled at the Uncle Sam Prospect, intersected high grade silver, yielding 148 g/t silver (1.77 g/t gold equivalent2) over 4.6 metres starting at 57.9 metres down hole, within a broader zone of 74.9 g/t silver (0.90 g/t gold equivalent2) over 22.9 metres starting at 41.2 metres down hole3.

The Uncle Sam Prospect is located 500 metres south and 250 metres vertically below, the South Mine Fault Zone. Modelled RC drill intercepts indicate the presence of a distinct silver (+/- gold) mineralized zone offset approximately 100 to 150 metres west and up to 200 metres below surface within the footwall of the main South Mine Fault gold zone, suggesting the potential for continuity of gold-silver mineralization between Uncle Sam and South Mine Fault Zone. Combined historical and 2019 RC drilling demonstrates the presence of gold-silver mineralization over a 350 metre vertical extent. A new 2019 rock grab sample collected between the South Mine Fault Zone and Uncle Sam yielded 3.63 g/t gold with 262 g/t silver in outcrop. The presence of high-grade mineralization in outcrop between Uncle Sam and South Mine Fault Zone further supports the potential for continuity of mineralization between the zones.
