Bam Bam Provides Corporate Update and Recap on Majuba Hill Nevada
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 28, 2020) - Bam Bam Resources Corp. (CSE: BBR) (OTC Pink: NPEZD) (FSE: 4NPB) ("Bam Bam" or the "Company") is pleased to provide a company update on developments within the Company and a recap on its flagship Majuba Hill Nevada Property (the "Property"), a copper, silver, gold porphyry project located in Pershing County, Nevada.
David Greenway, President and CEO, states: "Since I joined Bam Bam, considerable energy by the Board has gone into adding a prospective new project to the Company with a focus on some of the world's most mining friendly jurisdictions. We are now focused on exploration in the Western United States, especially Nevada. I would like to commend Buster Hunsaker for his tireless vision on bringing the flagship Majuba Hill Property towards a world-class deposit."
Majuba Hill Nevada Property Geological Programs
Bam Bam undertook several geological exploration programs this year along with reassessment of historic drilling and exploration.
In April, the Company announced that, after reassessment of historic drilling and exploration, the geological team at Majuba Hill are pleased to report that they have outlined three gold zones associated with the Majuba Hill copper (gold) porphyry project in Pershing County, Nevada. The ongoing, historical data review highlighted significant gold values associated with the copper in historic drill holes, surface rock chips, and soil sampling. This data suggests that Majuba Hill is best classified as a copper-gold porphyry.
The Company then begun mobilizing for the 2020 Phase 1 drilling program at its flagship Majuba Hill Property and Harris Exploration Drilling & Associates Inc. of Fallon, NV, mobilized a track mounted Core Rig to the project site. The two initial drill holes are targeting the high-grade copper zones containing significant gold and silver that were identified from the historic drilling. With COVID-19, Bam Bam field personnel and contractors used operational health and safety protocols consistent with ensuring the health and safety of its people, the local community, and the State of Nevada.
In May, the Company announced it completed the first core hole for the 2020 Phase 1 drilling program. The hole was designed to expand the copper, gold, and silver mineralization identified in the historic drill data. The hole was halted after intersecting historic workings. Hole MHB-1 is a vertical core hole drilled to 311.5 feet (94.9 M).
Later that month the Company announced it has completed the second core hole, MHB-02, of the 2020 Phase 1 drilling program. The hole was designed to expand the copper, gold, and silver mineralization identified in the historic drill data. Hole MHB-02 was drilled at a -45° inclination on an 045 azimuth to 474.5 feet.
In July, the Company announced that core hole MHB-1 at the Majuba Hill Nevada flagship property has returned significant copper and silver values.
Results from core hole MHB-1 indicate the zone does continue. Using a length weighted average, the significant interval is:
- 74 feet from 210 to 284 feet @ 0.35% Cu and 10.2 ppm Ag including 5 feet from 242 to 247 feet @ 1.26% Cu and 17.4 ppm Ag and 2 feet from 257 to 259 feet @ 4.22% Cu and 103 ppm Ag.
Results from core hole MHB-2 returned significant copper and silver values.

Starting from the surface MHB-2 intersected an outstanding interval of copper and silver. Using a length weighted average, MHB-2 returned extraordinary results:
- 146 feet from 0 to 146 feet @ 1.41% Cu and 97.6 ppm Ag including 28 feet from 12 to 40 feet @ 0.74% Cu and 120.8 ppm Ag and 43 feet from 91 to 134 feet @ 4.0% Cu and 204.4 ppm Ag.
The interval is the drill length, true width of mineralization is not yet known. It is comprised of 34 samples with 33 of the 34 samples greater than 0.05% copper.
The copper equivalent ("CuEq") value for the drill interval with MHB-2 is:
- 146 feet from 0 to 146 feet @ 2.38% CuEq.
Copper CuEq% was calculated by converting length weighted silver values to copper using USD$17/ounce silver and USD$2.50/lb. copper.
The hole also had 10 feet of good gold values with:
- 10 feet from 122 to 132 feet @ 1.283 ppm Au including 3.5 feet from 127 to 130.5 feet @ 2.33 ppm Au.

Majuba Extension Target Zone and New Road
In July, the Company discovered additional copper oxide while building an access road and drill sites at its flagship Majuba Hill Nevada Property.
The new road in the Majuba Extension Target Zone opened three new extensive copper oxide zones around two historic prospect pits. The new access road crossed below a small, historic prospect pit and its exposed copper oxide showings that were previously unknown, including malachite and chalcocite. Eighteen outcrop chip-channel samples were collected from five new exposures.
In August, The Company completed 3,000 feet (914m) in four vertical holes on the Majuba Extension Zone. Copper oxides were observed in MHB-5 between 750 and 810 feet. These holes will drill test the Majuba Extension Ridge.

Three core holes are planned at Majuba Extension Target Zone for the Phase 2 drilling. The plan is to drill 4,500 feet (1,371 m) in the sulfide target zone below the oxide mineralization. The holes will step out from sulfide copper mineralization intersected in MMX-24, test the high chargeability IP zone that is coincident with the high-grade copper in historic drill holes, and test the zone beneath the historic underground mine workings.
The Company recently announced the addition of Yari Nieken and Joel Warawa who have both joined the Board of Directors. Mr. Warawa has over twenty years of experience in public and private businesses as a financial and marketing consultant including business development, negotiations, mergers, and acquisitions, and increasing brand awareness in a broad spectrum of markets including commodities, automotive dealerships, and the mining sector.

Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering
In May, the Company announced that it had been chosen as one of three new theses to be prepared under supervision at the University of Nevada's ("UNR") Ralph J. Roberts Center for Research in Economic Geology ("CREG").
The CREG program is a center of study and learning that is leading to a greater understanding of the geology, geochemistry, geophysics, genesis and exploration of mineral deposits, especially Nevada's famous Carlin-type gold deposits, which make the U.S. the third leading gold producer in the world. The program is a partnership between the Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno, the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, and the U.S. Geological Survey. CREG is directed by Dr. John Muntean, Associate Professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. The sponsors and partners provide broad guidance and the list includes many of the active mining companies and explorers in Nevada.
The Company announced a consolidation all of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of ten (10) pre-consolidation shares for one (1) post-consolidated share of the Company resulting in 5,414,151 common shares issued and outstanding. The share consolidation was implemented with the objectives of having the Company's share price trade in a range above $0.20 per share and to offer a tight capital structure to prospective investors in the Company. The consolidation removes this barrier and opens Bam Bam up to significant global trading accounts. The Company also believes that it can now have increased institutional and broker support.
