BeMetals Corp announced commencement of the fully funded exploration program at the Pangeni Copper Project, located in the western extension of the Central African Copperbelt in Zambia. The primary objective for this year's campaign is to extend the copper mineralization discovered at two high-priority targets during the 2019 exploration program, and potentially vector into higher grade areas. John Wilton, President and CEO of BeMetals stated, "We are pleased to have started a follow up phase of aircore drilling at the Pangeni Copper Project. This project's value relates to exploring through thin cover units to test for extensions of the prolific Zambian Copperbelt, which hosts several world-class copper mines.

This is an exciting time for BeMetals with underground drilling already advancing at our high-grade Zinc-Silver-Gold-Copper, South Mountain Project in Idaho, our ongoing global evaluation for an entry-level precious metal project, and now the follow-up exploration program from the successful delivery of our last Pangeni Copper Project drilling results in 2019.

At Pangeni, last year's core drilling program resulted in the discovery of some very encouraging copper mineralization at both the D2 and SW(E2) targets (see Figure 1 and highlights below). Those intersections are generally hosted within broader zones of anomalous copper which are importantly associated with the same alteration minerals known to occur in other large-scale copper deposits, being mined, within the Zambian Copperbelt. Both the D2 target and SW (E2) targets are open for expansion along both strike and dip. We intend to systematically test the interpreted geological structures at these targets with cost-effective lines of shallow aircore drilling. Other priority targets on the property such as CT, will also be tested with aircore drilling before they are further evaluated with core drilling later in the year. We are also pleased to be continuing our strong technical and local community relationships with both Copper Cross Zambia Limited and Pangeni Mineral Resources Limited, the optionees of this property."
