New Break Increases Land Position at its Moray Project
Toronto, Ontario, March 15, 2023 – New Break Resources Ltd. (“New Break” or the “Company”) (CSE: NBRK) is pleased to announce that the Company has increased the land position at its Moray property (“Moray”) to 2,894 hectares from 1,856 hectares. Moray is located approximately 49 km south of Timmins, Ontario and 32 km northwest of the Young-Davidson gold mine, operated by Alamos Gold Inc.. Moray exhibits comparable geology, mineralization and alteration characteristics to Young-Davidson, including mafic volcanic hosted and syenite hosted auriferous quartz vein zones. Current annual gold production at Young-Davidson runs 190,000 to 200,000 ounces at an average grade of 2.3 grams per tonne gold (“g/t Au”), generating in excess of US$100 million of free cash flow annually at current gold prices.

The original Moray claims covering approximately 1,856 hectares (light green area), were acquired in September 2020 from Exiro Minerals Corp. (“Exiro”), a private junior mineral exploration company, for 2,500,000 shares of New Break and aggregate cash payments of $100,000. Exiro continues to hold their investment in New Break which represents 6.1% of the issued and outstanding common shares. The newly added mineral claims (dark green area) of approximately 1,038 hectares, were acquired by New Break at a cost of $2,400 from the Ontario Ministry of Mines when the ground became open for staking, bringing the total property area to 2,894 hectares. The newly staked ground is not subject to any pre-existing area of influence requirement, is royalty free and is automatically added to ground covered by the October 22, 2021, Memorandum of Understanding between New Break and the Matachewan and Mattagami First Nations.
Michael Farrant, President and CEO of New Break stated, “We’re extremely happy to have been able to strategically increase our land position at Moray. While we know that the Moray property hosts significant gold potential, it also uniquely hosts the potential for the discovery of critical minerals. This was a very easy way of adding shareholder value extremely inexpensively.”
William Love, Vice-President, Exploration of New Break further noted, “The newly acquired ground contains some historical drilling which identified anomalous zinc, copper and nickel. This offers the potential to build upon existing known ultramafic hosted nickel-copper mineralization at Moray encountered by Rio Tinto in the Dexter Lake showing and nickel mineralization encountered by Moss Resources Inc. in the Moss Tremblay showing. New Break is excited to incorporate this relatively underexplored area into the Company’s exploration plans. Our technical team has delineated a number of extremely high-quality gold focused drill targets from our extensive 2022 exploration fieldwork. We remain committed to conducting a drilling program on these Moray targets as soon as possible.”
Peter C. Hubacheck, P. Geo., consulting geologist to New Break, and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure in this news release.
