2022 Program

As highlighted in the Company's news release dated April 5, 2022, West Kootenay Diamond Drilling Services Ltd.

The Company anticipates being able to further define the gold mineralization on the Project Site in order to allow the Company to proceed with a mineral resource estimate pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

Frank Marasco Jr., President & CEO of West High Yield commented as follows: "I am pleased that as soon as weather conditions permitted, the Contractor team mobilized all drill equipment and support infrastructure to start drilling so quickly at the Project Site. Building on the Company's previously released 2009 drill results, West High Yield has excellent targets to test and with this strong start to the 2022 Program, the Company fully expects to drill all the planned targeted holes with considerable promise and expand the mineralized footprint at the Project Site with higher-grade cores."

The Company looks forward to sharing the results of the 2022 Program as soon as assay results are available from a qualified third-party assay lab.
