Vanstar Mining Announces Drill Results at Bousquet-Odyno: Intersects 31.5 m @ 1.36 g/t Au

Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - October 25, 2022) - Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR) (OTCQX: VMNGF) (FSE: 1V8) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce final results from its drill program at the Bousquet-Odyno project. The drill program totaled 32 holes for 9,127 metres and the results announced today include data from 19 drill holes which continue to intersect wide stringer zones in the 5 identified mineralized zones on the property.

Highlights reported today include:

Zone A
BO-22-73: 31.5 m @ 1.36 g/t Au, including 13.5 m @ 2.44 g/t Au
BO-22-94: 13.5 m @ 1.12 g/t Au

Main Zone
BO-22-69: 10.5 @ 2.31 g/t Au, and 6.40 m @ 3.41 g/t Au
BO-22-68: 6.00 m @ 3.00 g/t Au, and 9.00 m @ 1.22 g/t Au
BO-22-70: 16.00 m @ 1.20 g/t Au

Zone C
BO-22-85: 15.00 m @ 1.27 g/t Au

Drilling in 2022, as reported today and on May 30, June 20, and August 31, 2022, identified wide intersects of mineralized quartz stringer zones near surface in most zones as well as high grade zones that are open to depth. The Main Zone and Zones A and C are of particular interest given their wide near surface intercepts.

  • A total of 15 holes were drilled in the Main Zone. All holes have identified broad high-grade gold at depth and have defined continuity of multiple stringer zones. Hole BO-22-69 intersected 10.5 m @ 2.31 g/t Au and Hole BO-22-88 intersected 7.5 m @ 1.99 g/t Au. Visible specks of gold were observed in a few holes. The Main Zone has been traced over a strike length of 400 m down to an approximate depth of 300 m and remains open at depth.
  • In Zone A, Hole BO-22-63 demonstrated the high-grade potential at depth with an intercept of 21.5 m @ 5.23 g/t Au, including 10.5 m @ 10.14 g/t Au. Hole BO-22-73 assayed the widest mineralized intercept on the property to date (31.5 m @ 1.36 g/t) and is in proximity to previously announced holes BO-22-81, with results of 27 m @ 1.36, BO-22-76, 9.00 m @ 3.96 g/t, and BO-22-94 with an intercept of 13.5 m @ 1.12 g/t Au. As of this drill program Zone A has been drilled for a strike length of 300 m, down to 250 m and remains open at depth.
  • In Zone C, Hole BO-22-85 assayed 15.0 m @ 1.27 g/t Au which is the best intercept to date on this zone. More drilling will be needed to understand the attitude of this zone.
  • Zone D includes previously announced holes BO-22-78 and 80 had drill results of 9.5 m grading 1.37 g/t Au and 10.5 m grading 2.00 g/t Au, respectively, in proximity of historical hole 80-3, which intersected 6.0 m grading 3.38 g/t Au. The preliminary interpretation of Zone D is that we could be in a mineralized cross-structure which opens up new targets on the project. More drilling is needed to confirm this interpretation.

All zones justify further drilling with targets at depth and to verify the presence of mineralized cross-structures. Zones A and D are associated with conglomerate units that extend to the western boundary of the property with only a few drill holes on this sedimentary sequence and offer additional targets area to the west. See Figure 1 for a plan map indicating the location of released holes and Table 1 for a list of results from the 2022 drill program.

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO, said "Our drilling program allowed us to identify multiple stacked near surface mineralized gold zones and brings the combined strike length of the system to 800 m. Every hole drilled in this program encountered gold mineralization and has yielded additional targets for future drilling. The presence of wide mineralized stringer zones near surface offer promising opportunities for future development and there remains significant potential for high grade gold discoveries at depth, as has been demonstrated by other mines along the Cadillac Break."

The Bousquet-Odyno project is located approximately 6 km from IAMGOLD Corporation's ("IAMGOLD") Westwood mine and processing facilities. The following video demonstrates the proximity of the Bousquet Odyno project to regional infrastructure and the Westwood mill.
