Talisker Announces Initial Sampling Results from the Barnato Prospect within the Golden Hornet Camp

Toronto, Ontario, January 27, 2022 – Talisker Resources Ltd. (“Talisker” or the “Company”) (TSX:TS OTCQX:TSKFF) is pleased to announce rock assay results from a Phase 1 mapping and prospecting program at its Barnato prospect, located approximately three kilometres north of Talisker’s Golden Hornet Project. Talisker completed a 14 hole 4,583 metre phase one exploratory drill program at its Golden Hornet Project with recently released assay results highlighted by 8.88 g/t Au, 0.42% Cu and 14.99 g/t Ag over 5.1 metres and 11.58 g/t Au, 0.37% Cu and 11.1 g/t Ag over 1.05 metres (see press release of January 19, 2021). The Barnato prospect, part of the exploration pipeline at Golden Hornet, returned encouraging results discussed below.

Key Points:

  • Mapping identified multiple high grade sheeted veins within a 300 to 500 metre zone with historic sampling projecting potential strike length of veining to one kilometre.
  • A total of 25 rock samples were collected with eight samples returning gold grades greater than 15 g/t with the highest at 61 g/t Au. These samples validate historic high-grade results highlighted by four samples over 18 g/t Au with the highest at 41.9 g/t Au.
  • Best rock channel samples assayed 28.5 g/t Au over 1.2 m and 19.40 g/t Au over 1m
  • Best select rock samples assayed 63.53 g/t Au, 38.90 g/t Au, 30 g/t Au, 28.98 g/t Au, 18.57 g/t and 15.61 g/t Au (Select)
  • Located three kilometres north of the Hornet Zone at the Golden Hornet Project.
  • Veins surrounded by broad halos of disseminated sulphide mineralization similar to the Golden Hornet Project.
  • Similar mineralization styles, alteration assemblages and host rocks to the Golden Hornet Project.
  • The Barnato prospect has never been drilled.

Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker, commented, “Following on from our recent high grade discovery release at Golden Hornet, these samples potentially extend mineralization for up to three kilometres from our drilling. We are excited to see a similar style of mineralization in the Barnato area as we have drilled at Golden Hornet.”

Barnato Overview:

Three kilometres north of the Golden Hornet Project, the Barnato prospect comprises several quartz-sulphide veins with disseminated and fracture filled sulphide zones over a 500 x 200 metre wide area with the potential to extend vein zones to 1,000 metres along strike. All observed veins are hosted within a diorite body intruding into hornfels metasediments. Alteration assemblages at Barnato resemble those observed at the Hornet Zone which includes proximal strong sericite-pyrite alteration proximal to veins with a distal chlorite-epidote assemblage. Veins trend NE-E at Barnato which is a significant contrast from N-NE trending veins at the Hornet Zone. Barnato presents a new zone in addition to multiple zones observed in the initial soil program initiated by Talisker in 2021. Gold grades at Barnato are considerably higher than those observed at the Hornet Zone in addition to low -grade gold mineralization associated with disseminated sulphide and interstitial fracture veinlets further elucidating bulk-tonnage potential at Barnato.

Rock Sampling Results:

A total of 25 samples were collected at Barnato (see Table 1 below), adding to an existing nine historic samples. Samples include grab samples and channel samples across historic pits and trenches.

Talisker’s sampling adds to historic samples analyzed by previous operators that include:

• Sample B17 10.5 g/t Au
• Sample B18 19.2 g/t Au
• Sample B19 19.2 g/t Au
• Sample B23 0.69 g/t Au
• Sample B25 12.9 g/t Au
• Sample MARY 1 15 g/t Au
• Sample MARY 2 18 g/t Au
• Sample MARY 3 41.9 g/t Au
• Sample MARY 5 1.52 g/t Au

The Company notes that the historic samples are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the Barnato prospect. Limited exploration has been completed on the Barnato prospect.
