Ares Strategic Mining Completes Extensive Mapping Work on Planned Mining Areas

  • Mapping work locates additional fluorspar pipes within permitted mining areas.

  • Delineation drilling for mine design and construction updated to include discoveries.

  • Further mapping work ongoing on areas of interest across entire Spor Mountain range

Vancouver, B.C. November 9th, 2021 — Ares Strategic Mining Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE: ARS) (OTC:ARSMF) (FRA: N8I1), is pleased to announce that it has completed detailed geological mapping work across its permitted mining areas. Following the success of the exercise the mapping work was extended to further promising locations across the Spor Mountain.

Bell Hill Mapping

Bell Hill - Results of 2021 Geologic Mapping

  • Ares’ new compiled geologic map gives improved geologic understanding.

  • 17 new fluorspar occurrences identified within area.

Earlier geophysical work assists in the location and discovery of additional fluorspar showings.

Lost Sheep Mapping

James Walker, President and CEO of the Company said, “While completing the recent NI 43-101 report, the Company took the opportunity to conduct a thorough mapping exercise over the Spor Mountain district. The exercise was incredibly useful, and has helped the Company improve the delineation drilling programs required for the mine designs, which will then inform the mine construction. Following the success of the exercise the company is following up with mapping across its other areas of interest, with the intention of designing future drilling programs to develop the areas of interest outside of the Lost Sheep and Bell Hill areas. The work has provided increased confidence in the upcoming plans, which we hope to be executing shortly.”.

Companies typically rely on comprehensive feasibility reports on mineral reserve estimates to reduce the risks and uncertainties associated with a production decision. Historically, situations where the issuer decides to put a mineral project into production without first establishing mineral reserves supported by a technical report and completing a feasibility study have a higher risk of economic or technical failure, though some industrial mineral ventures are relatively simple operations with low levels of investment and risk, where the operating entity has determined that a formal prefeasibility or feasibility study in conformance with NI 43-101 and 43-101 CP is not required for a production decision. Based on historical engineering work, geological reports, historical production data and current engineering work completed or in the process by Ares, the Company intends to move forward with the development of its Utah asset.
