Winter Exploration Campaign at Sakami

Genius Metals has launched its winter exploration campaign on the Sakami property in December starting with line-cutting to conduct a 42 km IP survey on the Lamarche gold prospect during January and February. The line-cutting is now completed and TMC Géophysique was mobilized on January 21st to carry out the geophysical survey. As of February 5th, 65% of the survey was completed and the Corporation anticipates the survey to be completed by the end of February. Concurrently a high-resolution drone MAG survey was carried out on the new grid and, with the help of the IP survey results, will guide future trenching work and define new drill targets. Note that an IP survey has already been performed on the GoldenEye gold prospect.

The Corporation will conduct 2,000-3,500m of exploratory diamond drilling on the Lamarche and GoldenEye prospects upon the completion of the geophysical surveys. The company does not expect significant issues or disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic to its planned work program.
