Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 30, 2021) - Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSXV: KES) (OTC Pink: KSSRF) ("Kesselrun" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update on its Huronian Gold Project.

The Company continues to receive results from the 2021 drill progra,m including the first results from the Huronian Zone and further results from the Fisher Zone.

Highlights

  • Huronian Zone potential shown with first results
    • 21HUR054 intercepted 81.5 g/t Au over 0.6 m within a 4.1 m wide zone which assayed 16.2 g/t Au; 21HUR040 intercepted 0.6 m of open stope followed by 34.2 g/t Au over 0.5 m within a 2.9 m wide zone which assayed 7.3 g/t Au

  • Fisher Zone extended along strike 100 metres to the east and 50 metres to the west
    • 21HUR039 intercepted 5.4 g/t Au over 1.5 m within a 21.0 m wide zone which assayed 0.9 g/t Au; 21HUR042 intercepted 17.0 g/t Au over 0.9 m within a 3.3 m wide zone which assayed 5.3 g/t Au

Michael Thompson, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company, commented, "These first results from the Huronian Zone have exceeded our expectations. The potential to outline remnant resources amongst the historic mine workings, we believe, has not only been verified but the veracity of the gold mineralizing system has fortified our belief in the potential of the Huronian Zone down plunge and along strike."

Mr. Thompson added, "Significant progress continues to be made on the Fisher Zone with the strike extent increasing a combined 150 metres. We believe further drilling will continue to show the potential of the Fisher Zone."

(1)Widths are drill indicated core length as insufficient drilling has been undertaken to determine true widths at this time. Average grades are calculated with un-capped gold assays as insufficient drilling has been completed to determine capping levels for higher grade gold intercepts.

(2)Results are pending for the upper portions of 21HUR054. The Huronian zone samples were rushed.

The 2021 Huronian drill program is budgeted at 20,000 metres targeting the Fisher, Fisher North, McKellar and Huronian zones, all in close proximity along an approximate 1500 m strike length in the area of the historic Huronian Mine. The area also has tremendous potential for discovery of new zones in light of the new revised mineralization model.

About the Huronian Gold Project

The 100% owned Huronian Gold Project hosts the past producing Huronian Mine, Northwestern Ontario's first gold mine with an historic resource estimate of 44,592 oz Au at an average grade of 15.3 g/t Au in the indicated category and 501,377 oz Au at an average grade of 14.4 g/t Au in the inferred category. The resource estimate presented for the Huronian Project is historic in nature. Kesselrun Resources' qualified person has not completed sufficient work to confirm the results of the historical resource. Kesselrun Resources is not treating this as a current mineral resource but is considering it relevant as a guide to future exploration and is included for reference purposes only. The historic resource was estimated by Minescape Exploration Inc. in 1998. Further drilling will be required by Kesselrun Resources to verify the historic estimate as current mineral resources.

As well, the Huronian Gold Project hosts the same lithological package of rocks, as interpreted from both Government of Ontario and Kesselrun Resources mapping, compilation and modelling, on strike from Wesdome Gold's adjacent Moss Lake Gold Deposit with a resource estimate of 1,377,300 oz Au at an average grade of 1.1 g/t Au in the indicated category and 1,751,600 oz Au at an average grade of 1.1 g/t Au in the inferred category as outlined in their 2013 PEA2. Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicitave of mineralization hosted on Kesselrun Resources' property.

(2)Moss Lake Gold Mines (currently wholly owned subsidiary of Wesdome Gold) news releases February 20, 2013 and September 9, 2013.

On January 26, 2021 Wesdome announced that the Moss Lake Project would be purchased by Goldshore Resources Inc. ("GSHR" ticker reserved on the TSX Venture Exchange - see Wesdome and Goldshore news releases dated January 26, 2021).
