District Identifies Four New Targets and Completes Detailed Soil Sampling Program at the Gruvberget Property


District Metals Corp. (TSX-V: DMX) (FRA: DFPP); (\”District\” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the identification of four new high priority targets on the polymetallic Gruvberget Property located in the Bergslagen Mining District of south-central Sweden. Detailed soil sampling grids have been completed over the new target areas, and Ionic Leach (IL) geochemical results are expected back before the end of 2022.

The four new target zones were identified through compilation work that comprised our recent SkyTEM geophysical survey results (see news release) in conjunction with geological and historical exploration data on the Property.

New Target Areas (Figures 1 and 2):

• Target zone 1: Backen

o A Joint Venture (JV) between LKAB and BP Minerals discovered two high grade polymetallic boulders (up to 15% Zn, 4.8% Cu and 23 g/t Ag)1 at the Backen zone in 1980s. The JV was unable to locate the bedrock source for these boulders, which looks to be potentially sourced further to the north-northwest from the JV�s area of work.

• Target zone 2: Gyllingen

o Boliden drilled seven short holes into “sphalerite mineralization” (zinc sulphide) in the mid-1980s. Three drill hole collars were located in the field where the drilling direction was observed as parallel to the geological trend. No detailed information is available on these historical mineralized drill holes, but the Gyllingen zone coincides with a high priority magnetic and conductive anomaly from our recent SkyTEM survey.

• Target zone 3: North zone extension

o The LKAB-BP Minerals JV conducted exploration work north of the Gruvberget North zone, which included drilling geophysical anomalies with 918 m in six holes during 1984. Historical drilling extended polymetallic mineralization to the north of the North zone with a plunge to the north. Drill hole 84-GRU-03 returned 1.0 m of 1.1% Zn and 47 g/t Ag that was within a larger interval of lower grade mineralization2.

• Target zone 4: South zone extension

o A magnetic high anomaly located about 300 m south-southwest from the Gruvberget South zone was drilled with 363.5 m in three holes by NSG (exploration division of Geological Survey of Sweden) in 1982. All three drill holes encountered a 6.0 to 7.0 m wide zone with weak polymetallic mineralization that returned up to 0.1% Cu, 0.08% Pb, 0.09% Zn3 that is interpreted as a potential aureole around a mineralized zone.

Cautionary Statement Regarding “Forward-Looking” Information.

This news release contains certain statements that may be considered “forward-looking information” with respect to the Company within the meaning of applicable securities laws. In some cases, but not necessarily in all cases, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “targets”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “an opportunity exists”, “is positioned”, “estimates”, “intends”, “assumes”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate” or “believes”, or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might”, “will” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved” and any similar expressions.

Statements containing forward-looking information are not historical facts but instead represent managementâ€?s expectations, estimates and projections regarding future events. Forward-looking statements in this news release relating to the Company include, among other things, statements relating to the Companyâ€?s planned exploration activities, including its drill target strategy and next steps for the Gruvberget Property; and the Companyâ€?s interpretations and expectations about the results on the Gruvberget Property.

These statements and other forward-looking information are based on opinions, assumptions and estimates made by the Company in light of its experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors that the Company believes are appropriate and reasonable in the circumstances, as of the date of this news release, including, without limitation, assumptions about the reliability of historical data and the accuracy of publicly reported information regarding past and historic mines in the Bergslagen district; the Company�s ability to raise sufficient capital to fund planned exploration activities, maintain corporate capacity; and stability in financial and capital markets.

Forward-looking information is necessarily based on a number of opinions, assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by the Company as of the date such statements are made, are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including but not limited to risks associated with the following: the reliability of historic data regarding the Tomtebo Property; the Companyâ€?s ability to raise sufficient capital to finance planned exploration (including incurring prescribed exploration expenditures required by the Tomtebo Purchase Agreement, failing which the Tomtebo Property will be forfeited without any repayment of the purchase price); the Companyâ€?s limited operating history; the Companyâ€?s negative operating cash flow and dependence on third-party financing; the uncertainty of additional funding; the uncertainties associated with early stage exploration activities including general economic, market and business conditions, the regulatory process, failure to obtain necessary permits and approvals, technical issues, potential delays, unexpected events and managementâ€?s capacity to execute and implement its future plans; the Companyâ€?s ability to identify any mineral resources and mineral reserves; the substantial expenditures required to establish mineral reserves through drilling and the estimation of mineral reserves or mineral resources; the Companyâ€?s dependence on one material project, the Tomtebo Property; the uncertainty of estimates used to calculated mineralization figures; changes in governmental regulations; compliance with applicable laws and regulations; competition for future resource acquisitions and skilled industry personnel; reliance on key personnel; title matters; conflicts of interest; environmental laws and regulations and associated risks, including climate change legislation; land reclamation requirements; changes in government policies; volatility of the Companyâ€?s share price; the unlikelihood that shareholders will receive dividends from the Company; potential future acquisitions and joint ventures; infrastructure risks; fluctuations in demand for, and prices of gold, silver and copper; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; legal proceedings and the enforceability of judgments; going concern risk; risks related to the Companyâ€?s information technology systems and cyber-security risks; and risk related to the outbreak of epidemics or pandemics or other health crises, including the recent outbreak of COVID-19.
