Metallic dosages increase Elizabeth Gold’s results
- A 31% average increase in gold grades for previous high grade results which were analyzed using filtered metal analysis, more applicable for processing coarse gold
- Bonanza grade interval of drill hole EZ-21-04 re-assayed at 68.3 g / t over 1.50 m from 123.00 m from the previously reported intersection of 52.1 g / t
- Grade increases will be beneficial in the future preparation of the mineral resource estimate
- Drilling continues at Elizabeth (34 drill holes for ~ 8,600 meters completed to date)
Tempus Resources Ltd (“Tempus” or the “Company”) (ASX: TMR) (TSX.V: TMRR) (OTCQB: TMRFF) is pleased to announce the results of the filtered metal analysis of selected intervals of recent Elizabeth Gold Project drill holes: EZ-21-01; EZ-21-04; EZ-21-05; EZ-21-06; EZ-21-07B; and EZ-21-08, where the results show an average increase in gold content of approximately 31% compared directly to the originally published assay results based on standard fire assay (see table 1
The filtered metal analysis was performed in consultation with the laboratory (SGS Canada Inc.) due to the observation that the Elizabeth gold mineralization includes grain gold and the analyzes performed using the Standard pyrotechnic analysis method may have under-represented the content, or otherwise less precise than those examined. metallic analysis due to the “nugget effect”. The re-assay of screened metals was considered particularly vital for testing the accuracy of the very high “bonanza quality” assays received to date.
The more precise filtered metal analysis resulted in a significant increase in analytical qualities. The best example is drill hole EZ-21-04 where 52.1 g / t gold over 1.50 m from 123.00 m was initially reported (see Tempus announcement of August 10 2021) and it is now confirmed that it is 68.3 g / t gold on the same interval. The base interval of EZ-21-04 is shown in Figure 1 (below). Table 1 (below) shows the filtered metal analysis results received to date for six holes (EZ-21-01; EZ-21-04; EZ-21-05; EZ-21-06; EZ- 21-07B; and EZ -21-08) against their previously reported standard pyrotechnic analyzes. The location of the relevant drill holes is shown in Figures 2 and 3 (below).
Tempus President and CEO Jason Bahnsen commented “The results of the filtered metal analysis further push the “high quality” nature of Elizabeth’s story even further. We have several other sorted metal analysis results pending. Drilling is also continuing at the site and we are now focused on defining the potential new vein parallel to the southwest vein, identified with visible gold in the announced drill hole EZ-21-12. September 2nd. “
The values received from the filtered metal analysis will replace the original analysis results and, based on the information obtained to date, should have a positive impact on the overall grade and scale when calculating an estimate. update of mineral resources. Tempus technical staff will continue to use filtered metal analysis on areas of quartz vein where higher gold grades are expected.

The Elizabeth Gold Project is Tempus’ flagship project and is located in the Bralorne-Pioneer Gold District in southern British Columbia. The 115km 2 The Project is a relatively under-explored high-grade mesothermal gold project with mineralization occurring in sets of veins varying in actual width from 1 m to 6.5 meters. The high-grade quartz veins encountered in the Elizabeth borehole show close geological similarities to the Bralorne-Pioneer mesothermal vein system (approximately 30 km), which was mined to a depth of approximately 2,000 meters and produced more than 4 million ounces of gold over a period of more than 70 years (1900-1971 approximately).
To date, Tempus has completed approximately 8,600 meters of drilling (out of the total announced Phase 1 drilling program of 12,000 meters) since the start of the program in November 2020. In total, Tempus has completed 34 drill holes in diamond in Elizabeth (11 holes completed in 2020). , 23 holes completed in 2021 to date). Information on drill collars can be found in Appendix 1, Table 1. There are currently eleven drill holes awaiting assay results.

About Tempus Resources Ltd
Tempus Resources Ltd (“Tempus”) is a growth-oriented gold exploration company listed on the ASX (“TMR”) and TSX.V (“TMRR”) and OTCQB (“TMRFF”) stock exchanges. Tempus is actively exploring projects located in Canada and Ecuador. Tempus’ flagship project is the Blackdome-Elizabeth Project, a former high-grade gold production project located in southern British Columbia. Tempus is currently at the midpoint of a drilling program at Blackdome-Elizabeth which will form the basis of an updated NI43-101 / JORC resource estimate. The second group of key projects for Tempus are the Rio Zarza and Valle del Tigre projects located in south-eastern Ecuador. The Rio Zarza project is adjacent to Lundin Gold’s Fruta del Norte project. The Valle del Tigre project is currently the subject of a sampling program to develop anomalies identified by geophysical work.
