(businesspress24) -
THUNDER BAY, ON, May 10, 2021 - Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSXV:KES; OTCPK:KSSRF) (Kesselrun or the Company) is pleased to provide the following drilling results on its Huronian Gold Project.

The first set of holes drilled on the McKellar Zone in 2021 program has been successful in extending the mineralized shoot to over 75 metres in vertical depth with multiple high-grade zones over significant widths within a wider zone of significant gold mineralization.

- 21HUR056 intercepted 7.2 g/t Au over 5.8 m, 3.3 g/t Au over 5.3 m and 4.7 g/t Au over 3.1 m all within a 67.8 m wide zone which averaged 1.6 g/t Au
- 21HUR057 intercepted 5.5 g/t Au over 4.7 m within a 23.0 m wide zone which averaged 1.4 g/t Au

Michael Thompson, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company, commented, These initial holes on McKellar in 2021 have confirmed the model developed after last years drilling. The next phase of drilling at McKellar will focus on outlining further high-grade shoots and extending mineralization down plunge.

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. As of this news release approximately 6500 metres has been drilled of which 2750 metres of drilling results have been released. The area also has tremendous potential for discovery of new wide zones of significant gold mineralization in light of the new revised mineralization model.

(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.

About the Huronian Gold Project

The 100% owned Huronian Gold Project hosts the past producing Huronian Mine, Northwestern Ontarios 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 Golds 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 indicative of mineralization hosted on Kesselrun Resources property.

On January 26, 2021 Wesdome announced that the Moss Lake Project would be purchased by Goldshore Resources Inc. (see Wesdome and Goldshore news releases dated January 26, 2021).
