A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) reports that the assay analysis from YDD1 at Neighbour’s Farm historic mine workings, the first diamond drill hole at its Yalgogrin Gold Project, NSW, Australia has been completed by SGS Australia. Extensive gold mineralisation was intersected from 58m through to the end of hole at 162.3m with gold mineralisation remaining open at depth and returning gold Intercepts over 87m averaging 1.5gt. The best individual grades returned up to 9.3 gt Au that are supported by consistent mineralisation hosted within the altered rock mass.

A summary of the intervals and average assays is set out below from the top of the core:

YDD001 153 162.3* 9.3 0.6

Notes: Intervals calculated using 0.3 g/t lower cutoff, include up to 1m of internal dilution
* gold mineralisation was present in end of hole.

Phil Thomas, CEO commented, “This hole was a great success, the ubiquitous gold is closely associated with disseminated sulphides in the altered rock mass and higher grades are associated with veining. Extensive sericite-muscovite-carbonate-chlorite alteration in the granite is hosting disseminated pyrite-arsenopyrite-sphalerite-galena sulphides which clearly explain the elevated IP chargeability results and provide confidence for further exploration utilizing the IP survey. We are building our model of structural controls directing the mineralisation corridors and so are defining the character of what is a promising gold mineralizing system. The drill program is testing various locations of the high conductivity zones from the IP survey completed earlier this year. This will assist us in subsequent drilling programs. In total 1,000m of drilling has been planned for the initial framework drilling program and the results of this first hole gives us great confidence to continue to drill out the target to define the extent of the mineralized zone.

We are currently processing samples for lab submission from drill hole YDD2 that was drilled 90 degrees to the azimuth of YDD1 and YDD3 is currently at 162m depth near the Adelaide mine area. Thin sections are being prepared of the sulphide-gold mineralisation so we can better understand the mineralisation and metallurgy for ore processing.

Soil geochemical sampling work is being carried out to refine drill targets and we have commenced work in the Asia Wyalong area where we have 56 sq kilometers of exploration license.”

A.I.S. Resources Started Drilling Today on Yalgogrin Gold Property, Lachlan Fold Belt, NSW, Australia

A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSXV: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF) (the “Company” or “AIS”) is delighted to report that Drillit Consulting from Parkes NSW have mobilized their diamond drill rig and commenced drilling today for a 1,000m drill program on the highly prospective gold bearing Neighbours Farm Prospect, part of the 60% owned Yalgogrin Property on the Lachlan Fold Belt, NSW, Australia.

Phil Thomas, CEO commented, “We have been able to combine the geophysics with new 3D inversions to better target the drill holes where 32.2g/t Au have been recorded at 0.5m below surface at the Neighbours Farm Prospect. These geophysics results suggest a high probability of exceptional grades in the oxidized zone down to roughly 30m depth. Deeper drilling will also be carried out in the granites below to target the sulphide zone.”

AIS Resources Acquires Option on 596 sq km Exploration Licence Near Casterton, Western Victoria, Australia with Gold, Nickel, Copper, Zinc, Chrome, Gemstone mineralization – Exploration Area Now Totals 852 sq km

A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSXV: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS) is delighted to report that it has signed a 90 day option agreement to acquire the exploration licence EL006958 known as Casterton in the Glenelg zone, in Western Victoria, Australia. The option agreement has provision for extensions to 31 July 2021. If the option is exercised AIS can acquire the property for AUD$1,500,000 in cash and shares. This brings the total square kilometres AIS is exploring to 852 sq km.

Phil Thomas, CEO commented, “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to develop a multi-commodity project stream. The famous Hummocks Nickel, Chromite mine still has part of the infrastructure there and a sample from the feed chute was assayed by AIS at On-site Laboratories at 1,200ppm nickel and 1,100 ppm chromium. The base metal prospects are in the bright red staurolite zone in the schist that can be mineralized with copper and nickel. Low-grade nickel in serpentinite occurs at The Hummocks, north of Casterton (Bush et al. 1995b). With significant past exploration this will significantly enhance our portfolio.”
