ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Feb. 21, 2018) – Pershimex Resources Corporation (formerly Khalkos Exploration inc.) (« Pershimex » or the « Company ») (TSX VENTURE:PRO) is pleased to announce the first results of its 2017 drilling campagin on its Courville property. All holes with known results intersected mineralization comprising extensive, low-grade zones associated with the Thibodeau intrusion as well as high-grade internal-zones (refer to table). The 2017 drilling campaign has doubled the mineralized zone, attaining a strike length over more than 800 m (refer to table).
Results confirm the 2005 Pershimco Resources inc., geological model: low gold grades over extensive widths, also integrating higher grade zones. One of the significant intervals obtained during the 2017 campaign yields 0.41 g/t Au over 165.30m including 7.31 g/t Au over 2.80m. This significant mineralized interval of the known Rolartic showing is more than 300m southeast of the 14,000 tonne bulk sample realised in 2005 by Pershimco Resources inc., which recovered 790 ounces of gold from a pit having a maximum depth of 5m. This type of result confirms that the Rolartic showing sector is host to gold mineralization similar to that observed in the Malartic sector.

Robert Gagnon, President and Chief Executive Officer stated: « This drill campaign is the largest in the history of the company. We are really pleased with the results of this first drill campaign on the Courville project. They confirm the pertinence of the acquisition of this high-development potential project. Already, we have confirmed the Rolartic showing over 800m. In the short term, we expect to complete the required financing to continue our work and thereby increase the mineralized zone at depth and in the southwest and northwest extensions. We will soon be releasing new results obtained during our 2017 drill campaign. »
Following an analytical quality assurance and control program, blank samples and certified reference materials were added to drill core samples before being shipped and analyzed by ALS Chemex of Val-d’Or, Quebec, following the pyro-analysis method.
