Group Ten Metals Inc announced the successful completion of its 2019 field exploration campaign at the Company's flagship Stillwater West platinum group element-nickel-copper project, adjacent to Sibanye-Stillwater's high-grade PGE mines in Montana, USA. Mr Michael Rowley, President and CEO, said “We are pleased to report the successful completion of the field work portion of our 2019 exploration campaign at Stillwater West. Assays are now pending on all drill, rock and soil samples, and work will be ongoing into 2020 to bring those new drill results into an updated block model. We are excited to be driving towards the delineation of a formal mineral resource estimate at the three most advanced multi-kilometer targets with five earlier stage, large-scale targets remaining to be tested. We look forward to providing continued news flow from Stillwater West, plus updates on our other assets, in the coming weeks and months."

Field work at Stillwater West consisted primarily of the following for 2019:

Drilling - Group Ten completed its inaugural diamond drill program at Stillwater West with the objective of expanding known mineralized zones developed in block models based on past drilling in the most advanced target areas and advancing those areas towards delineation of formal mineral resources for platinum, palladium, rhodium and gold, along with nickel, copper and cobalt. The Company is building on data from more than 28,000 meters of prior drilling across the 25-kilometer-wide Project, as well as extensive geophysical and geochemical studies.

Prior Drilling - Nearly 12,000 meters of physical core has been re-evaluated in order to apply new geologic models developed in South Africa's Platreef district. Select intervals of this core, where past assay results were not conducted or were completed for select elements only, have been submitted for assay in order to bring these drills holes into the developing resource model.

Geological Sampling and Mapping - Ground-based geological sampling and mapping campaigns were completed in less developed targets to advance them towards drill-ready status for future programs.

Soil Geochemistry Survey - Sampling of soils from a multi-kilometer area covering the western part of the Project - the Boulder, Wild West, and Chrome Mountain target areas, was completed to extend coverage from earlier surveys completed on the eastern portion. This work is expected to refine existing targets while also providing new targets for work in 2020. Soil geochemistry has been a very effective exploration tool at Stillwater West due to the exposure of the wide mineralized horizons at surface.
