Montréal, May 13 2019 – Sphinx Resources Ltd. (“Sphinx” or the “Corporation”) (TSX-V: SFX) and SOQUEM Inc., a subsidiary of Ressources Québec, are pleased to announce the analytical results of the remaining nine (9) drill holes, from a 29 holes campaign drilled during the 2019 winter along the 1,500 m-long zinciferous zone (see press releases of 15 November 2019, 27 February 2019, 14 March 2019 and April 18, 2019). Hole CS-19-26 intersected 4.9% zinc over 2.0 m and 8.5% zinc over 1 metre.

The significant drill results for these nine (9) holes disclosed in this release are presented in Table 1 and Figure 1. They indicate the presence of zinc mineralization in all 29 drill holes completed during the 2019 winter. The true thickness is estimated at 100% of the mineralized intersection length in all drill holes.

Analytical protocol

Samples were analyzed by ALS in Val-d’Or, Quebec. The analytical process consisted of crushing, splitting and assaying using sodium peroxide fusion with an Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-AES) finish. Sphinx applies industry-standard QA/QC procedures to the program.
