ValOre Drills High-Grade PGE and Nickel-Copper Mineralization 150 m South of Trapia 1, Pedra Branca Project: 71.8 m at 1.59 g/t 2PGE+Au, including 8.15 m at 10.54 g/t 2PGE+Au, 0.37% Ni and 0.11% Cu

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ValOre Drills High-Grade PGE and Nickel-Copper Mineralization 150 m South of Trapia 1, Pedra Branca Project: 71.8 m at 1.59 g/t 2PGE+Au, including 8.15 m at 10.54 g/t 2PGE+Au, 0.37% Ni and 0.11% Cu

Vancouver, British Columbia, September 25th, 2023 - ValOre Metals Corp. ("ValOre"; TSX?V: VO; OTCQB: KVLQF; Frankfurt: KEQ0, "the Company") today reported initial assay results from the recently completed 2023 Phase 1 core drilling at ValOre's 100%-owned Pedra Branca Platinum Group Elements ("PGE", "2PGE+Au") Project ("Pedra Branca") in northeastern Brazil.

"Drill results from DD23TU33 indicate a broad interval of high-grade mineralization intersected in a 150-metre step out hole to the south of the existing resource at Trapia 1, underscoring the resource expansion potential. Importantly, this broad intersection contains a higher-sulphide, high-grade PGE-Ni-Cu interval that may be amenable to targeting by geophysical methods," stated Thiago Diniz, Exploration Manager, ValOre Metals Corp. "Trapia 1 results have ramifications at other known zones across the Pedra Branca project, as they clearly demonstrate significant resource expansion potential at depth and down dip of previous drilling."
