A.I.S. RESOURCES IDENTIFIES
PROSPECTIVE DRILL TARGETS
AT RELIANCE REEF AND
PROVIDES BRIGHT GOLD PROJECT UPDATE
Vancouver, British Columbia May 20, 2022 -- InvestorsHub
NewsWire -- A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSX.V: AIS, OTCQB:
AISSF) (the "Company" or "AIS") announces that the
Company has identified four low impact drill hole locations in the
newly developed Reliance Reef area.
Drilling, has been designed to test the exploration prospect
at Reliance and evaluate the drill rig suitability for resource
drilling at Golden Bar. The Company is collaborating with the State
Government roads manager and the Company's community relations team
is continuing to engage with the community to advise on the

Reefs and Mines – Historical Analysis
historical research of production related to the Reliance Mine
finds it the richest producer in the district. A newspaper article
from 1897 shows that a crushing from ore at surface yielded an
oz./ton or 3,576.5g/t.
Other historical yields included 3831 oz at 44g/t at the Elgin
Reef, and 9646 oz at 24g/t at the Hillsborough Reef.
follow-up production was uncovered with two references of
production showing 335oz for the quarter of June
for the March quarter of 1906.

There is a
near target drill fan program to test width, proximity, and strike
orientation with a further step out program to test continuity at
depth and orientation. Also, it is important to understand the
relationship of this saddle reef to any fold hinges that are
projected to exist locally as 3D modeling demonstrates that the
lower Elgin Reef occurs in proximity to an anticline which at this
point is mapped to be 4m wide from historic mine plans. Gold can be
found to deposit in saddle reef structures.

anticipated that the program should be able to determine the shoot
below and between historic workings lending further credibility to
the concept that the Reliance Reef and upper Elgin Reef are the
same structure. It is important to note that the Elgin workings
were intersected by a low angle post mineralization fault (hence
the upper and lower Elgin Reefs) with displacement of unknown
dimension. There is also the potential of other low angle late
faults to be encountered in this drilling.

manager and community engagement is ongoing.

A historical account of
production at Golden Bar comes from the last records of mining
immediately above these drill intersections by way of the Kenny,
Earliest records of the prospect are incomplete, with surface
mining estimated to have initiated around 1865, concluding in 1905
on mining fronts associated with the Home Reef and Shaws Reef. It
was calculated that Shaw's Reef yielded a grade of 10.14 g/t from
487.7 ton of ore and Home Reef yielded 22.28 g/t from 287 ton of
ore. The weighted average from a total of 779.3 ton of ore is 14.66
g/t, with auriferous pyrite contributing between 1.2-1.5
Both of these reefs plunge to the south-east at about thirty
As announced on January 12, 2022, AIS entered into a joint
venture with Clarus Resources Pty. Ltd. to explore the highly
prospective Bright Gold Project Exploration Licence EL6194, that
covers 57 sq km of land along the Bright-Myrtleford highway. The
exploration licence is surrounded by Dart Mining (ASX:DTM),
Fosterville South (TSX.V:FSX), and E79 Resources
Martyn Element, Chairman of AIS stated, "We are pleased to
have completed a recent financing and look forward to commencing
the drilling program at the Reliance Reef and Golden Bar Reef, two
promising target zones of the several prospects at Bright
Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project
AIS has completed the soil sampling program, the geophysics
review, and a second geophysics review. The company is now
preparing for drilling up to 10 holes at approximately 100-120m.
Our community engagement team is currently working with land and
traditional owners to advise them of the proposed work pursuant to
the latest DJPR Earth Resources guidelines.
Explanation of Historical
"Historical estimate" means an estimate of the quantity,
grade, or metal or mineral content of a deposit that an
issuer has not
verified as a current mineral resource or mineral
reserve, and which was prepared before the issuer acquiring, or
entering into an agreement to acquire, an interest in the property
that contains the deposit and is not NI43-101 compliant nor JORC
compliant if an Australian reporting explorer. The statement does
not imply that a resource has been estimated and gives no
indication that the deposit is economic or not. An issuer
must not disclose any
information about a mineral resource or mineral
reserve unless the disclosure uses only the applicable mineral
resource and mineral reserve categories.
