A.I.S. Resources Reports Visible Gold at its Bright Project in Victoria, Australia

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSX.V: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF) (the “Company” or “AIS”) announces that the Company intersected visible gold (Figure 1) at the Golden Bar Prospect in the third hole of its current 1,500 meter program to test widths, grades and association between the Shaws, Red, Leader, Home, and Golden Bar reef systems.

Visible Gold at Hole GBDD003

The third hole (GBDD003) intersected gold in a spurry quartz-carbonate vein at 75.5m associated with the Golden Bar Reef (Figure 2). This visible gold intersection was unexpected at this depth as the model anticipated the Golden Bar reef would be encountered below the 100 meter level. The gold mineralization appears to occur through multiple major and minor faults.

This new intersection is within a broadly altered interval that contains arsenopyrite, sphalerite, and pyrite. AIS drilled 2 holes at the Home and Golden Bar Reefs early this year, recording anomalous concentration over 10,000ppm (1%) arsenic which is known to be a pathfinder for gold. Down hole intersections are consistent with the 3D model generated from open-source LiDAR and historic mine plans.

About Golden Bar

A historical account of production comes from the last records of mining immediately above these drill intersections by way of Kenny, 19661. Earliest records of the prospect are incomplete, with surface mining estimated to have initiated around 1865, concluding in 1905 on mining fronts associated with the Home Reef and Shaws Reef. It was calculated that Shaw’s Reef yielded a grade of 10.14 g/t from 487.7 tonne of ore and Home Reef yielded 22.28 g/t from 287 tonne of ore. The weighted average from a total of 779.3 tonne of ore is 14.66 g/t, with auriferous pyrite contributing between 1.2-1.5 g/t2. LiDAR analysis demonstrates that at surface the Home Reef was mined up to 120m in length, while the Shaws Reef was mined up to 80m in length.

AIS is seeking to demonstrate that wide continuous mineralization occurs within the boundaries of mineralized reefs and is persistent over strike.
