Vancouver, BC – September 14, 2023 – Prospect Ridge Resources Corp. (the “Company” or “Prospect Ridge“) (CSE: PRR) (OTC: PRRSF) (FRA: OED) is pleased to announce results of surface geological works at the Dorreen Mine and surrounding area, situated within the Company’s fully owned flagship Knauss Creek property, located 35km northeast of Terrace, BC. Those results are part of an ongoing aggressive surface exploration campaign designed to follow up on historic showings and other targets across the entire property.

Key Highlights:

Sampling was completed at the Dorreen Mine that was developed in 1924, 1926 and in 1952. Production information in historical reports is inconsistent. It is reasonable to estimate that about 700 tons at 16.8 g/t Au, 58 g/t Ag, 0.22% of Cu, 2.1% of Pb and 1.4% of Zn were mined from a quartz vein (not 43-101 compliant).

Outcrop sampling of the quartz vein that remains accessible in the underground adits from the Doreen mine returned:

21.70 g/t Au (W384759),

22.80 g/t Au (W384760),

12.00 g/t Au (W384814), and

11.55 g/t Au (W386163).

In addition, surface prospecting and mapping has discovered a number of new veins in outcrops. These veins are interpreted to form part of a larger network of veins covering a larger area than previously interpreted.

An outcrop sample collected 50m southwest, at 75m higher elevation from the mine, returned:

7.12 g/t Au (W384720);

From two other adits located 100m southwest, at 100m higher elevation from the mine, outcrop samples collected gave:

36.20 g/t Au (W386156),

19.35 g/t Au (W384675).

Prospect Ridge CEO Michael Iverson commented, “The consistent high-grade results achieved both within and above the mine reinforce our optimism about the mineral nature of this area, suggesting a mineralized system comprised of multiple veins. The veins identified not only host gold but also contain silver, copper, lead and zinc. These recent findings are in line with documented historical grades associated with the Dorreen mine.

We are very pleased with the exploration work in this area and these high-grade results will require future follow-up. Additionally, similar work is being completed at other showings across the property and we expect to release those results in the near future.”

Positioned west of the Knauss creek and elevated by about 100m on the mountain’s flank, the Dorreen mine is a network of four interconnected adits. See location of the Dorren Mine Target, within the Knauss Creek property in Figure 1.

All accessible points were sampled, yielding eleven (11) samples showcasing gold, silver and base metals. The location of collected samples is illustrated in Figure 2, while the samples details are listed in Table 1.

While scouting the area, an outcrop with a quartz vein, containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite, was sampled (W384720) and gave 7.12 g/t Au, 108 g/t Ag, 0.53% Cu, 4.74% Pb and 1.45% Zn.  A gold equivalent of 11.41 g/t was calculated. This outcrop is located some 50m southwest of the extremity of the mine and at 75m higher elevation.

Further exploration, 100m southwest and 100m in elevation from the mine, led to the discovery of two more adits, the results of which are listed in Table 2.

Gold equivalents were calculated with a gold price of $1,750/oz, silver at $21/oz, copper at $3.60/lbs, lead at $0.90/lbs and zinc at $1.00/lbs.

Cautionary statements

Outcrop samples are selective by nature and grades may not be representative of mineralized zones. True thickness or mineralization style and geological models cannot be determined with the information currently available.

Quality control

Rock samples were assayed for gold by standard 50 g fire-assaying with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA24) or gravimetric finish (Au-GRA22) or 1000g metallic screening (Au_SCR24) at ALS Canada in Terrace, British Columbia. The samples were also assayed for 35 metals from an aqua regia digestion with ICP-AES finish (ME-ICP41). For samples with overlimit results in silver, copper, lead and zinc aqua regia with ICP finish was used (OG46 ore grade). A quality assurance/quality control program has been implemented and consists of inserting standards on a regular basis in the samples stream.

About the Knauss Creek property

The fully owned Knauss Creek is about 35 kilometers northeast of the town of Terrace in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. It is easily accessible by highway 16 and a network of logging roads. It covers about 32 square kilometers and is contiguous to our optioned Holy Grail property.

Several gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc occurrences were found in the past. The most notable is the Dorreen mine where four adits were developed and, according to historical documents, around 700 tons of ore were mined out at an average grade of at 16.8 g/t Au, 58 g/t Ag, 0.22% Cu, 2.1% Pb and 1.4% Zn from a quartz vein (not 43-101 compliant).

The southern tip of the Golden Triangle arrives just northwest of PRR properties. The Bowser Lake and the Hazelton Groups hosting most of the deposits and mines of this area are also underlying the Knauss Creek and Holy Grail.
