Smooth Rock Commences Drilling at the Palmetto Gold Project

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 3, 2022) - Smooth Rock Ventures Corp. (TSXV: SMRV) (OTC Pink: SMRVF) ("Smooth Rock" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the first of two drill programs planned for 2022 at the Palmetto Gold Project has begun.

The initial 2022 drill program is designed to expand the current resource by extending the known mineralized zones laterally and at depth. Drilling will target the high-grade feeder chutes and explore other areas of the project outside of the inferred resource area. A subsequent drill program planned for later in 2022 will be driven by results from the current drill program.

"The initial 2022 drill program at the Palmetto Gold Project will follow up on the success of the 2021 drill program which returned 6.5 meters grading 31.4 gpt gold in hole SRV 21-01," stated Smooth Rock CEO, Christos Doulis. "Our focus in 2022 will be to develop and expand the known high-grade zones. We will also target other identified zones within the project currently not included in the resource estimate due to drilling density. We see these areas having near term potential to significantly add to the overall resource."
