(PresseBox) - Filo Mining Corp. (TSXV, Nasdaq First North Growth Market: FIL) ("Filo Mining?, or the ?Company? - ) is pleased to provide a summary of the results of the recently completed 2019/2020 field program at the Filo del Sol project, and to discuss the implications of these results for the ultimate size of this impressive mineral system.

Commenting on the recent results, President and CEO Jamie Beck stated, ?Our latest drill program has transformed our understanding of the size and scale of the Filo system.

The most important holes from this season were FSDH032 (1,009 m at 0.95% CuEq (0.57% Cu, 0.39g/t Au, 11.1g/t Ag)) and FSDH034 (1,034 m at 0.68% CuEq (0.42% Cu, 0.32g/t Au, 3.4g/t Ag)) (see Filo News Release dated April 20, 2020).

The oxide portion of the deposit, and the very uppermost part of the sulphide portion, are defined by the current project resource shown in the table below:

All of the holes which define this resource ended in mineralization, and it was clear that there was considerable potential to expand it by drilling deeper.

Following up on these concepts, several holes were drilled below the resource in 2019 and 2020.

None of these intervals are included in the current resource estimate and additional drilling will be required in order to capture this mineralization in the resource, however these intersections clearly demonstrate that, as expected, substantial mineralization occurs below the resource, and that this mineralization remains completely open to depth as all these holes ended in mineralization.

In order to better understand the potential, an exploration target was developed by modelling predicted volumes based on approximate east-west extents of the resource, depths below surface drilled by the deeper diamond drill holes and the north-south extent drilled by these holes.

The potential quantity and grade of this exploration target is conceptual in nature, and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource in this area.

To the north of this target, surface mapping has demonstrated that the same intense hydrothermal alteration that overlies the deposit, stretches for an additional 1,700 metres to a reverse circulation drill hole (VRC093) which ended with 166.0 m (from 284 m depth) at 0.42% CuEq (0.15% Cu, 0.24 g/t Au, 11.9 g/t Ag) including 42.0 m of 0.57% CuEq (0.40% Cu, 0.17 g/t Au, 6.1 g/t Ag) at the bottom of the hole.ired to characterize the mineralization, if any, in this gap area but it has the potential to add substantially to the current exploration target if successful.

Shallow drilling to the south of this target has intersected mineralization over an 800 metre distance towards holes VRC111 (102m from 6m depth at 1.04% CuEq (0.77% Cu, 0.35g/t Au, 1.5g/t Ag) and VRC143 (118m from surface at 1.02% CuEq (0.68% Cu, 0.45g/t Au, 1.4g/t Ag).

Current work is focused on processing and interpretation of the extensive geophysical data collected during the past season, and integrating it with the updated geological model, including input from the deep drilling, in order to produce a comprehensive 3 dimensional geology-based geophysical model which will help to guide further drilling into the areas north and south of the resource area.out this program as our geological & support staff and contractors are based entirely in Argentina.

On behalf of Filo Mining,

Jamie Beck

President and CEO


The field program was carried out under the supervision of Bob Carmichael, B.A.Sc., P.Eng. who is the Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.C program.

Mineralized zones within the Filo del Sol deposit are typically flat-lying, or bulk porphyry-style zones and drilled widths are interpreted to be very close to true widths.

Copper Equivalent (CuEq) for drill intersections is calculated based on US$ 2.80/lb Cu, US$ 1,400/oz Au and US$ 16/oz Ag.

Details of the methodology and assumptions used to estimate the resource estimate can be found in the Technical Report titled ?NI 43-101 Technical Report, Pre-feasibility Study for the Filo del Sol Project" dated February 22, 2019 with an effective date of January 13, 2019.
