SASSY SIGNIFICANTLY EXPANDS WESTMORE HIGH-GRADE GOLD-SILVER DISCOVERY IN ESKAY CAMP
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 3, 2022 – Sassy Resources Corporation (“Sassy” or the “Company”) (CSE: SASY) (FSE: 4E7) (OTCQB: SSYRF) has significantly expanded the Westmore high-grade gold-silver discovery at depth and along strike with the highest grades yet from drilling at the Company’s 100%-owned Foremore Project in Northwest British Columbia’s prolific Eskay Camp, 30 miles northeast of the Eskay Creek mine.
2021 Drilling & Sampling Highlights
The last five drill holes at Westmore in 2021 each intersected shallow, high-grade mineralization (drill hole intersections are core lengths - true widths unknown at this time);
Four of the last five holes returned visible gold and confirmed the continuation to depth of high-grade Au mineralization defined by 2020 surface sampling. The newly-named 4Amigos Vein has a strike length of 160 meters and is open for expansion to depth and along strike to the west and in particular along strike and downslope to the east;
55.2 g/t Au and 32.3 g/t Ag over 0.8 m within 1.5 m @ 26.6 g/t Au and 15.7 g/t Ag (WM21-014);
86.4 g/t Au and 41.6 g/t Ag over 0.7 m within 1.4 m @ 43.2 g/t Au and 20.8 g/t Ag (WM21-015);
26.3 g/t Au and 17.0 g/t Ag over 0.7 m within 2.2 m @ 8.4 g/t Au and 6.25 g/t Ag (WM21-016);
20.2 g/t Au and 19.3 g/t Ag over 0.8 m within 1.6 m @ 10.2 g/t Au and 9.8 g/t Ag (WM21-017);
503.0 g/t Ag over 1.0 m (WM20-18), 200 m south and 112 m below the 4Amigos vein;
New discovery from channel sampling 600 m south and 300 m below the 2019 original surface discovery where a steeply dipping mafic volcanic hosted quartz vein, up to 7.7 m thick, is exposed over a distance of 130 m and is believed to continue underneath the glacier at the bottom of Westmore. A channel sample across this vein system returned 7.2 g/t Au and 230 g/t Ag over 2.0 m. This area of Westmore has yet to be drill-tested.
Mr. Mark Scott, Sassy President and CEO, commented: “The Eskay Camp is one of the best addresses in the world for high-grade gold exploration and mining. What’s so encouraging about Westmore is that this is a completely new grassroots discovery with a large surface footprint and improving early-stage drill results. As we ramp up drilling and tighten up drill spacing, the expectation is for even better results. The Eskay Camp is renowned for its upside surprises. We also look forward to providing an update soon on the highly prospective More Creek Corridor where we’re targeting gold-silver-rich VMS-style deposits.”
Westmore Discovery Highlights
18 drill holes (4,168 m) completed to date at Westmore (6 in 2020, 12 in 2021) confirm the discovery of a structurally controlled gold-silver-rich system with a large surface footprint covering the Westmore granodiorite intrusive and surrounding country rock;
1,026 surface samples collected at Westmore by Sassy, mostly during 2020 and 2021, returned an average grade of 2.65 g/t Au. The top 50 samples averaged 43.16 g/t Au and 329.26 g/t Ag;
2021 geological mapping focused on defining the outer edge of the intrusive suggests that its widest point east-west is approximately 1 km. In a north-south direction the intrusives long axis also measures approximately 1 km. Its depth extent is unknown but beyond 400 m;
A geochronology study has put the time of the emplacement of the Westmore intrusive at 189.6 Ma (Early Jurassic). Notable examples of gold deposits in the Eskay Camp of a similar age are Brucejack and Snip;Geochemically, the high-grade veins occurring in the intrusive and the encompassing mafic volcanic rock at Westmore are similar;
The associated Au-Ag-Cd-Pb-Te-Zn geochemical signature is recognized in veins occurring within the mafic volcanic unit that flanks the west-northwest side of the Westmore intrusive and on the southeast side of the intrusive where mafic volcanic hosted and very steeply dipping quartz veins have a measured thickness at surface of up to 7.7 m;
Importantly, this geochemical signature can be utilized to vector to potentially favorable quartz veins within the intrusive and surrounding country rock.
Mr. Ian Fraser, P.Geo. and VP-Exploration for Sassy, commented: “We have taken another important step forward with this early-stage discovery and we have much to follow up on from our 2021 success. The last five drill holes at Westmore all cut high-grade mineralization and we’re also greatly encouraged by the channel sampling of the wide vein system at the bottom of the Westmore intrusive leading into the glacier, perhaps our most important surface discovery since the original 2019 discovery 600 m to the northwest and 300 m higher in elevation.
“The aim this summer will be to take Westmore to yet another level and identify the significant mineralizing source which fed this apparent robust system,” Mr. Fraser concluded.
2021 Westmore drilling was designed to test the quartz vein stockwork systems occurring at the southern part of the exposed Westmore intrusive and to test other quartz vein occurrences at lower elevations than those tested by drilling in 2020. Four drill holes (WM21-014 to WM21-017) were designed to confirm the quartz vein hosted high-grade Au values sampled extensively on surface in 2020, and intersected by 2020 drilling (4Amigos Vein), are continuous along strike and to depth (see attached 2021 drill hole plan map, drill hole location table and 4Amigos long section). As illustrated in the 4Amigos long section, assay results from surface sampling and drill hole pierce points indicate a current strike length exceeding 150 m and a drill-confirmed vertical depth of 37 m in which high-grade Au values have been produced (fully open for expansion).
Notably, drill hole WM21-007 (the first hole drilled in the 2021 season following up on the six holes drilled at Westmore in 2020) was collared south of and at a lower elevation relative to the six holes drilled at Westmore in 2020 and produced a wide intersection grading 0.34 g/t Au over 28.0 m from 191.0 to 219.0 m downhole. Included within this intersection was a higher-grade result of 5.8 g/t Au over 0.8 m which contained visible gold, demonstrating the potential of this wide vein to produce high-grade results across significant widths as further drill testing is performed. The type of “blow-out” observed in WM21-007 can occur in any of the numerous east-west trending vein systems within the Westmore intrusive.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Sassy implemented an industry-standard QA/QC program for all field samples and drill core samples collected during its 2021 exploration program. The company inserted QC blanks and standards at pre-determined intervals. Drill core samples were cut in half by rock saw, half of the core remained in the labeled interval in the core box, the other half was placed in clear plastic sample bags together with pre-numbered sample tags and remained on site until transportation to the lab. Samples were transported and submitted directly by Company personnel to the ALS prep lab at Terrace, B.C. Initially, all rock and drill core samples were crushed to 70% passing 2mm, split to 500g, and pulverized to a pulp with 85% passing 75 micrometres. The pulps were then shipped to ALS facilities in Kamloops and Vancouver BC, where they were fire assayed for gold by 50g fire assay with atomic absorption finish (AAS), 48 elements by multi-element ICP-MS, 4-acid digestion. The company is in the process of re-assaying high-grade Au Samples by Metallic Screening process. Over-limit analyses for Ag, Cu, Pb, Zn were performed utilizing the Ore Grade, 4-Acid, ICP-AES procedure. ALS is an accredited lab independent of Sassy Resources.
