Rover Metals Announces Infill and Delineation of the New Andrew Zone at Cabin Gold, NT

13 January 2022

Vancouver, British Columbia – (January 13, 2022) – Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FRA:4X0) (“Rover” or the “Company”) is pleased to report on the Phase 2 Exploration Program at its 100% owned Cabin Gold Project, NT, Canada. The focus of the Phase 2 Exploration Program was to discover and delineate new gold mineralized zones along the Bugow Iron Formation, the controlling structure for gold at the Cabin Gold Project. The Company is pleased to announce that its exploration program has been able to confirm and expand the historic gold grades at the Andrew South, Andrew Middle, and Andrew North Targets. The expansion includes an increase to the historical average gold grades reported across all of these historic targets. Rover has grouped the north, middle and south bounds of Andrew into a new single Andrew Zone, which extends 800 meters from south to north at surface. The map of the Bugow Iron Formation on the Company’s website has been updated to show the location of the new Andrew Zone. The south end of the Andrew Zone is situated roughly 500 meters northeast of the Beaver Zone. The Beaver Zone was featured in the Company’s December 7, 2021, release. The Company has now reported on the discovery of three medium-to-high grade mineralized gold zones at Cabin: the Arrow, Beaver, and Andrew Zones, all open at depth, and along strike.

Andrew Zone Expansion

Andrew South

The Company is reporting multiple near-surface medium-to-high grade gold at the newly defined Andrew Zone which extends 800 meters from south to north along the Bugow Iron Formation. Highlights of Phase 2 drilling at Andrew South include: new drill hole CL-21-21 which reported 2.9m of 5.09 g/t Au (from 70.65m to 76.8m), including 2.2m of 6.42 g/t Au and deeper in hole CL-21-21, reporting 4.7m of 3.38 g/t Au (from 88.80m to 94.00m). As of the date of this release, the Company has sent in additional samples for assaying from hole CL-21-21, as the gold mineralization is recognized to extend past the sulfide intervals of the drill core, which is a first for the project. The new assays, once received, will be part of a future updating release, and could extend the reported high-grade gold intervals at the southern part of Andrew. Additional highlights at Andrew include: new hole CL-21-24 which reported 3.9m of 2.91 g/t Au (from 51.00m to 55.12m); new hole CL-21-19 which reported 3.1m of 2.57 g/t Au (from 62.2m to 65.3m) and deeper in hole CL-21-19 reporting 1m of 2.06 g/t Au (from 93.3m to 94.3m); new hole CL-21-20 which reported 0.4m of 6.11 g/t Au (from 90.8m to 91.2m); and new hole CL-21-25 which reported 2.3m of 2.61 g/t Au (from 68.0m to 70.5m). As noted below, in the drill result tables, there are multiple well mineralized drill intercepts at the south part of the Andrew Zone that are reported in additional new holes (see CL-21-22, CL-21-22, CL-21-23 in the tables below). As of the date of this release, the Company has also sent additional samples from hole CL-21-25 to the lab for assaying.

Andrew North

Highlights from drilling at the northern part of the Andrew Zone include new hole CL-21-27 which reported 4.3m of 4.14 g/t Au (from 17.8m to 22.8m); new hole CL-21-29 which reported 3.0m of 3.2 g/t Au (from 37.6m to 40.8m) and multiple additional medium-to-high grade gold intercepts at deeper depth from this same hole, as reported in the drill result tables below. As of the date of this release, the Company has sent additional samples to the lab from hole CL-21-29. Additional highlights include new hole CL-21-28 which reported 3.2m of 1.19 g/t Au (from 38.8m to 42.8m).

The results, both confirm and expand upon, 1980s historical drilling at Andrew, and have returned higher grades than historical results. The historical drill holes and new holes from Andrew South and Andrew North can be referenced in the drill plan views below. A table of significant Andrew Zone drill assay results, greater than 0.5 g/t Au, listed by hole and interval, can be found near the end of this release. For purposes of the calculations of the highlighted intervals in this release, Rover considers results above 0.50 g/t Au to be of significance.

Judson Culter, CEO at Rover Metals, states “We are very pleased to have made the discovery of a third significant zone at the Cabin Gold project. In total, there is over 1,000 meters of surface strike length, that is open along strike (Beaver) and at depth (Arrow, Beaver and Andrew), across all defined zones on the project (Arrow, Beaver and Andrew). We expect the 2022 Phase 3 Exploration Program at the Cabin Gold project to focus on the highest grade gold areas of these zones.”
