Vancouver, BC: Etruscus Resources Corp.(CSE: ETR) (the “Company” or “Etruscus”), a Vancouver-based junior exploration company with a focus on the development of its 100%-owned Rock & Roll project, is pleased to announce that its common shares commenced trading on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) under the ticker symbol “ETR”.
The 5,309 hectare Rock & Roll Project sits within the prolific Golden Triangle in northwestern British Columbia, Canada. It is located 7km northwest of the past-producing Snip Mine. The Property hosts a precious metal-rich, volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit that displays similarities to other precious metal-rich deposits such as Eskay Creek, Greens Creek, and other deposits in the Cordillera. The mineralization occurs within a continuous layer that is folded into a shallow bowl-shape.
The open pit constrained Rock and Roll deposit hosts a NI 43-101 compliant Inferred Resource (at a base cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t gold equivalent (AuEq*)) totalling 2,015,000 tonnes grading 2.63 g/t AuEq*.See table below:
Rock and Roll Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate, August 3rd 2018
(Cut-off Grade 0.5 g/t AuEq)
|Au (g/t)||Ag (g/t)||Cu (%)||Pb (%)||Zn (%)|
- *Mineral resources are reported at a base case cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t AuEq considering metal prices in USD of $1,250.00/oz Au, $17.00/oz Ag, $3.00/lb Cu, $1.00/lbPb and $1.20/lb Zn, and assuming metal recoveries of 95% for zinc, 80% for lead, 90% for copper, 85% for silver and 80% for gold or 85% for AuEq. Metallurgical recoveries will be adjusted with future metallurgical testing. AuEq = (Au g/t * 0.8) + (Ag g/t * 0.012) + (Cu% * 1.48) + (Pb% * 0.44) + (Zn% * 0.63).
A National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report including the Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate for the Rock and Roll deposit contained in this news release has been completed by SGS Canada and is filed on SEDAR under Etruscus’s profile.
Gordon Lam, Etruscus President & CEO, stated “The Etruscus team has been working tirelessly to achieve this listing. We are very excited to present our company to the market.” He went on to add, “The Rock & Roll Property is an exciting project and one that has seen little attention over the last decade despite its exceptional location in the metal-rich Golden Triangle. The area surrounding the Rock & Roll Property belonging to Seabridge Gold and Skeena Resources has recently seen major investment including multi-million dollar exploration programs and plans for improvements in infrastructure. With approximately $1.5 million in the bank, we plan to strategically explore the Rock & Roll Property with the goal of expanding our current Inferred Resource Estimate.”

About the Rock & Roll Property
The property was originally staked in 1988 on behalf of the Prime Resources Group-one of Murray Pezim’s companies.
In 1990, exploration (line cutting, geochemical soil sampling, mapping, prospecting, ground geophysical surveys and trenching) led to the discovery of polymetallic, silver-gold-zinc-lead-copper massive sulphide mineralization that became known as the Black Dog Zone.Notably, the surface expression of the Black Dog Zone is readily apparent in the geochemical soil sample and ground geophysical data.
In the period immediately following the discovery of the Black Dog Showing, Prime drilled 94 holes, totalling 11,063.2 metres in length, in the Black Dog and SRV zone area.Subsequently, 20 holes totalling 3321.6 meters were drilled by several junior companies, mainly to expand the known mineralized zones. No work has been done on the property since it was returned to the vendors in 2009.Rock & Roll was then acquired by Etruscus in early 2018.
Etruscus Resources Corp. is a Vancouver-based exploration company focused on the development of its 100%-owned Rock & Roll Property situated in northwest British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. Etruscus trades under the symbol ETR on the Canadian Securities Exchange and currently has 19,094,001 shares issued and outstanding.
