Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 5, 2024) - Intrepid Metals Corp. (TSXV: INTR) (OTCQB: IMTCF) ("Intrepid" or the "Company") announced that it has entered into an agreement to amend the option agreement dated April 20, 2021 with New Empire Exploration LLC (the "Vendor") to acquire a 100% interest in the Tombstone South Property (the "Property") located in Arizona. The amendment provides for an extension to complete the required US$500,000 work commitment that was due May 2024 to May 2025, in exchange for the issuance of an additional 100,000 common shares of Intrepid to the Vendor.

"The Tombstone South Property has tremendous potential and is a project we remain very excited about," said Ken Brophy, CEO of Intrepid. "The results from the 2022 ground-based large dipole induced polarization ("IP") geophysical survey identified a new chargeability anomaly near the contact of the Bisbee strata which is host to structurally and stratigraphically controlled silver/zinc CRD ("Carbonate Replacement Deposit") mineralization from the Tombstone mining district, and the limestone units which host the zinc-lead-silver Taylor sulphide deposit owned by South32 Limited located 75 kilometres ("km") to the southwest. This amendment provides the Company with additional time to plan and execute a drill program following the recent closing of its private placement in January 2024 for gross proceeds of $6.6 million."

The Tombstone South Property is located approximately 5.6 km southwest of the town of Tombstone, Arizona, USA which occupies the center of the historic Tombstone Mining District. The main Tombstone District is well-known for high-grade silver/lead/zinc replacement bodies, fissures and veins that have yielded a historic production (1880's to 1930's) of over 30 million ounces of silver.
