Westminster Signs Definitive Agreement and Triples Land Package in Chile’s Atacama

ID: 1568485

(firmenpresse) - Vancouver, B.C. - June 24th, 2021 Westminster Resources Ltd. (TSXV: WMR) (Westminster or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has completed a definitive option agreement with a private vendor to acquire a 100%-interest in the Mostazal copper project (see news release dated March 11, 2021). This marks an important milestone for the Company and advances its strategic copper focus in Latin America.

Increased Land Package
The copper-rich mineralized system at Mostazal, exposed over ten-square-kilometres in out-crop and historic mines, extends under cover into Atacama gravels surrounding the property. The true size and extent of this system remains untested. However, deep imaging using induced polarization (IP) and magnetic surveys defines a much larger and deep-seated copper porphyry target with multiple expressions extending beyond the historic claim boundary. Accordingly, Westminster has staked additional exploration claims through its wholly owned Chilean subsidiary, taking the total coverage area in both exploitation and exploration licenses from 13-square-kilometres to 39-square-kilometres.

Jason Cubitt, Westminsters President and CEO, commented, Were delighted to formally complete on this option to acquire. Mostazal represents a tier-one, drill-ready copper porphyry target within the most richly endowed geological setting in the region. Its vitally important that we control strategic ground in advance of drilling, and our acquisitions team has done a tremendous job securing surrounding claims.
