A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSXV: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the “Company” or “AIS”) reports that drilling has now commenced on the Company’s Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project in Victoria Australia, following successful interpretation of the ground based gravity survey.

The Fosterville Toolleen Gold Project is located 12 km east of Kirkland Lake’s Fosterville gold mine – currently one of the richest gold mines in Australia.

Phil Thomas, AIS’s CEO commented, “The initial test drilling program of 20 holes has now commenced on our Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project. We’re very excited to have moved on to this important next phase of our gold project discovery. If we locate the tension veins from the big faults within the tight geological folding envelopes, then it is highly likely that we will encounter sulphide mineralization carrying gold – similar to Kirkland Lake’s Fosterville gold mine. The Permian glacial cover is prognosed to thin out on our tenements, therefore allowing for shallower drilling to target depth. The folding at the nearby Kirkland Lake Fosterville gold mine resulted in the formation of a series of bedding parallel laminated quartz veins and bedding parallel thrust faults.”

AIS Resources’ Chief Exploration Geologist Dennis Walsh, who has extensive experience exploring around the Fosterville gold mine, commented, “Gold and associated sulphide mineralisation at the Fosterville gold mine is controlled by late brittle faulting and fracturing. These brittle faults are generally steeply west-dipping, reverse faults with a series of moderately west dipping, reverse splay faults formed in the footwall of the main faults, where gold mineralization is structurally controlled. Mineralized shoots in the area are typically 4m – 15m thick and show down-dip and down-plunge dimensions typically ranging from 50m – 150m by 300m – 2,000m plus. That’s our target for our highly prospective Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project. The Fosterville gold mine has proven this geological model, and we will now be using the same modeling concept to develop the potential at our Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project.”

AIS Resources’ Australian Yalgogrin Gold Project’s first drill hole returns gold intercepts averaging 1.5g/t over 87 meters including 0.9 meters at 9.3 g/t

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:

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.”
