Toronto, Ontario, – February 16, 2021 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX”) is pleased to announce that drilling of the Gerry Vent target on the DD Property has commenced by DLP Resources (“DLP”). Hole DD21-01 will be drilled to test the MT resistivity anomaly which coincides with the known mapped surface outcrop of albite, actinolite and tourmaline alteration within a breccia extending over an area of approximately 400m x 100m. Visible mineralization of sphalerite (Zn) and galena (Pb) occurs within the breccia.
The depth of the Sullivan-type Zn-Pb-Ag target zone is between 300 to 600m below surface where a strong conductive body is identified by a magnetotelluric (MT) resistivity anomaly of between 20- and 60-ohm metres (Figures 1 and 2).
PJX’s DD Property, located near Cranbrook, British Columbia, is under option to DLP Resources. (see Property Ownership below).
John Keating, President of PJX commented: “This is the first hole to test the Gerry Vent area for Sullivan type mineralization. The MT survey has identified additional targets across the project area for testing. PJX owns 4 base metal (silver, zinc, lead, copper) properties and 4 gold properties with 100% of the mineral rights to the largest land package in the Vulcan Gold Belt in the Sullivan Mining District. Gold results from drilling in December on our Gold Shear Property are expected by late March. We look forward to an exciting exploration year, including working with DLP on our DD Property, and going forward with Osisko Gold Royalties on our 4 gold properties (see news release February 9, 2021).”
The geological disclosure and content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Dave Pighin, P.Geo., and John Keating P.Geo. (qualified persons for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Pighin is the consulting geologist for PJX and DLP on the DD Property. Mr. Keating is the President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of PJX.

DD, NZOU and Moby Dick Property Ownership
DLP can earn a 50% interest in the DD Property by spending $4 million in exploration expenditures on the DD, Moby Dick and NZOU Properties and paying $250,000 cash to PJX by July 13, 2024.
DLP can earn an additional 25% interest, to a total of 75% interest, in the DD Property by completing a Commercial Feasibility Study on the 3 properties by July 13, 2028.
PJX (50%) and DLP (50%) jointly own 100% of the mineral rights to the Moby Dick Property and jointly have the right to own 100% interest in the NZOU Property through an option agreement between DLP and the NZOU Property owner. Exploration expenditures incurred by DLP on these two properties will be applied toward DLP’s exploration expenditure requirements to earn an interest in the DD Property.
