Vanstar Mining Resources Intercepts 9.0 m of 3.96 g/t Au and 18.0 m of 1.07 g/t Au at Bousquet-Odyno

Montreal, Quebec–(Newsfile Corp. – June 20, 2022) – Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR) (OTCQX: VMNGF) (FSE: 1V8) (“Vanstar”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce additional results from its drill program at Bousquet-Odyno project. The results received from seven (7) holes to date confirm continuity of mineralization at depth in the main zone of the project and also show additional mineralization outside of the main zone. Hole BO-22-76 returned a 9.0 m intercept grading 3.96 g/t Au in a zone that is SW of the main zone in a different geological setting and may indicate the beginnings of a new, higher-grade zone.

Holes BO-22-64 through 67 were drilled in the main zone, between the known high-grade zones. Hole BO-22-67 returned an intercept of 18.0 m grading 1.07 g/t Au, including 6.0 m of 1.42 g/t Au and 6.6 m of 1.39 g/t Au. Results from these holes confirm the continuity of mineralization and a possible widening of the mineralized zone at depth just as it was observed in hole 63. See Figure 1 for a longitudinal section showing the location of the holes relative to previously drilled holes by other operators and Table 1 for a list of results to date from the current drill program.

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO, said, “The current drill program is progressing very well and today’s results are improving our understanding of the gold zones on the property. Hole BO-22-76 is interesting as historical drilling in the area had not returned significant results and it is possible that this is a new ore shoot. We plan to follow up with additional drilling in this area. Also of note, holes BO-22-64 through 67 are in a lower-grade area which seems to connect the higher-grade gold shoots of the main zone, allowing for a bulk tonnage target to be developed. Again, more drilling is needed to confirm, but the project’s proximity to infrastructure and operating gold mills would reduce future development capital expenditure.”

Results announced to date represent approximately 2,500 m of the planned 9,000 m program. Drilling is ongoing and further results are expected throughout the summer.
