Toronto, Ontario, April 7, 2021 – Talisker Resources Ltd. (“Talisker” or the “Company”) (TSX:TSK) (OTCQX:TSKFF) is pleased to announce complete and partial drill assay results from its ongoing Stage One 50,000m drill program at the Bralorne Gold Project in British Columbia (Figure 1). Results have been received from the King Block (SB-2020-29), the Bralorne West Block (SB-2021-003A, SB-2021-004, SB-2021-005 and SB-2021-006) and the Bralorne East Block (SB-2021-001).
Today’s results comprise assay results from the bottom half of hole SB-2020-29, the first hole drilled by Talisker in the King Block. Significantly, this hole demonstrates the potential for high-grade gold mineralisation below and along strike of the historic King Mine (Figure 2). From the Bralorne West Block, the bottom half of hole SB-2021-002, partial assay results from holes SB-2021-004, SB-2021-005 and SB-2021-006 and the complete set of assay results for hole SB-2021-003A were received. Also received were the bottom half of SB- 2021-001 from the Bralorne East Block. All holes returned significant high-grade gold mineralisation further demonstrating the structural continuity of gold-bearing quartz veins along strike of the historic underground mines at the Bralorne Gold Project and will be incorporated into the dataset that will be used to define a resource estimate expected in 2022.
The first hole drilled by Talisker at the King Block suggests significant potential for high-grade gold mineralisation. Following on from the 5.09 g/t gold over 8.40m intersected in the top half of hole SB-2020-029 at King (press release March 16, 2021), the bottom half of the hole intersected high-grade gold mineralisation over 750m beyond the historic underground mine at King (Figure 2, Figure 3a and Table 1). More drilling is required to determine the continuity of these high-grade intersections.
Highlights from the King Block include:
Bralorne East Block
Hole SB-2021-001 was the first hole drilled to the east of the Empire fault and was designed to target near-surface gold mineralisation within the Bralorne East Block, and today’s results represent the second half of the hole following the release of the first half in the Company’s press release of March 16, 2021. High-grade gold mineralisation intersected at 514m downhole is ~300m from the nearest high-grade intersection (Figure 2, Figure 3b and Table 1), further expanding high-grade gold mineralisation to the southeast.

Bralorne West Block
Drilling continues to demonstrate structural continuity along strike of the historic underground mine within the Bralorne West Block (Figure 2, Figure 3c and Table 1).
Highlights from the Bralorne West Block include:
“Together with the consistency of the received gold grades, these results show significant down plunge extensions of the high-grade vein potential, particularly below the historic King Mine which was only mined to 350m from surface,” commented Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker, who added, “With each stepout hole we are seeing the dimensions of the system increasing from our initial view and we plan to increase our drill program to accommodate the new target areas.”
