Trilogy Metals Inc announced the first set of assay results from this summer’s exploration diamond drilling program at the Bornite Project and the Sunshine prospect, which are part of the Company’s Upper Kobuk Mineral Projects located in the Ambler mining district of Northwest Alaska.All amounts are in USD. Based on the VTEM geophysical survey that we completed this past spring over the Ambler volcanogenic massive sulphide belt and from historical drilling, the most recent drilling targeted the Sunshine prospect, which is approximately eight miles from the Arctic Project.The assay results reported below for one drill hole from the Sunshine prospect comprises 161 meters of the 1,356-meter six-hole drill campaign at this prospect. Results from the other five holes at Sunshine are pending and will be released later in the year.

The four Bornite drill holes reported below comprise approximately 3,014 meters from the recently completed 7,610-meter drill campaign. All four drill holes contain copper mineralization and were designed as either infill drill holes to the 300 to 400-meter step-out holes completed in 2017 and 2018 or in the case of RC19-0258 to step-out 150 meters to the northwest of the existing mineral resource.

In total, there were 10 holes drilled at Bornite, 11 holes drilled at Arctic and six holes drilled at the Sunshine prospect during the 2019 field season.

Drilling Highlights – Sunshine Prospect
At a cutoff grade of 1.5% copper equivalent* the results from zones 1-4 and a newly discovered zone from the Sunshine prospect are as follows:

SC19-019 intersected five mineralized intervals of:
9.1 metres with a copper equivalent grade of 3.95% (3.02% copper, 1.42% zinc, 0.27% lead, 0.14 g/t gold and 24.65 g/t silver);
3.3 metres with a copper equivalent grade of 2.82% (1.68% copper, 1.77% zinc, 0.47% lead, 0.12 g/t gold and 27.57 g/t silver);
3.7 metres with a copper equivalent grade of 5.51% (4.74% copper, 0.97% zinc, 0.13% lead, 0.15 g/t gold and 28.96 g/t silver);
3.0 metres with a copper equivalent grade of 1.63% (0.75% copper, 1.40% zinc, 0.35% lead, 0.08 g/t gold and 21.02 g/t silver); and
7.88 metres with a copper equivalent grade of 5.23% (2.23% copper, 5.62% zinc, 1.10% lead, 0.18 g/t gold and 46.95 g/t silver).

Drilling Highlights – Bornite Project
At a cutoff grade of 0.5% copper the results from the Bornite Project are as follows:
RC19-257 intersected three mineralized intervals including:
3.7 metres averaging 1.32% copper; and
4.4 metres averaging 2.60% copper.
RC19-258 intersected three mineralized intervals including:
23.2 metres averaging 0.76% copper.
RC19-259 intersected seven mineralized intervals including:
56.1 metres averaging 1.81% copper.
RC19-261 intersected six significant mineralized intervals including:
2.9 metres averaging 2.63% copper;
35.0 metres averaging 1.98% copper;
16.0 metres averaging 2.02% copper;
54.1 metres averaging 1.11% copper;
3.1 metres averaging 1.84% copper; and
29.0 metres averaging 1.47% copper.
