Continued Drilling Planned for Playfair’s RKV Copper Project, Norway

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 25, 2022) – Playfair’s (TSXV: PLY) (FSE: P1J1) (OTC Pink: PLYFF) extensive drill program on its large (201 square kilometers) 100% owned RKV Copper Project in South Central Norway to test targets identified by using a combination of Artificial Intelligence (CARDS) and Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) geochemistry was partially completed in late 2021. In an abbreviated program, shortened by Covid-19 and logistical issues, a total of 539.7 metres was drilled in 11 holes.

In 2022 a total of 26 holes are planned for a total of 1,300 metres. Drilling will be completed at Storboren and the Røstvangen, Kletten and Sæterfjellet high MMI copper targets also will be drilled. The order of drilling will be dictated by logistics. The Municipality of Tynset has given Playfair permission to access the drill areas by helicopter. The logistics and schedule of drilling in several of the target areas will be eased by use of a helicopter.

All seven drill targets, as noted in the maps, show compelling coherent MMI Cu anomalies with multiple MMI Cu values greater than 6,000 ppb. The highest value recorded was 53,300 ppb MMI Cu. A short MMI Report by SGS states that values greater than 6,000 ppb MMI Cu “are likely to be associated with weathering copper sulphides”.

In keeping with Playfair’s intent to minimize the impact of its exploration on the natural environment Playfair is using a lightweight drilling machine which can be disassembled and hand-carried to the drill sites. Although lightweight the drill is capable of drilling to 150m depth using BQ sized rods (36.5 mm or 1.437 inches core diameter) and to 100m depth using NQ sized rods (47.8mm or 1.872 inches core diameter).

2021 Drill Results

Four holes were drilled at Rødalen and all were collared on a steep slope. A previously unknown amphibolite with sulphide mineralization was discovered though the unit showed no significant copper or cobalt values.

Results from the partially completed drill program at the Storboren High Copper MMI anomaly indicate the bedrock source of the copper is located upslope from the seven holes drilled in 2021. The immediate source of the part of the anomaly tested by drilling is interpreted as downslope migration of copper in overburden due to a combination of soil creep, sulphide weathering and local acid drainage. The drilling was carried out late in the year and the onset of snowy winter conditions coupled with the very steep terrain required the remaining drilling to be postponed to Spring 2022.

The first 6 holes at Storboren were on the lower part of the slope and encountered mostly unmineralized rocks of sedimentary origin. The last hole drilled, SBN-21-07, location shown on the map and image, encountered intrusive mafic to ultramafic rocks mixed with inclusions of sedimentary rocks similar to those drilled downslope to the southeast. There were several intervals of sulphide mineralization showing anomalous copper, cobalt, and nickel. Of the 11 holes drilled in 2021 at Storboren and Rødalen SBN-21-07 contains the 10 highest copper values, the 10 highest cobalt values and 8 of the 10 highest nickel values. 102 samples of drill core were analyzed. Copper values range from 1.8 to 1355 ppm with a mean of 144 ppm, cobalt values ranged from 15.4 to 97 ppm with a mean of 38 ppm and nickel ranged from 32.9 to 377 ppm with a mean of 157 ppm.

Of particular interest is the occurrence of an area devoid of vegetation at the northern edge of the high copper MMI anomaly. The usual overgrown vegetation is intersected by a 10 – 15 m long 1 – 2 m wide exposure originating from a water outflow near the base of the upper, steeper slope.

Within this unvegetated area many angular to sub-rounded blocks (10 to 50 cm) are present, some of local origin, some non-local and some of undetermined origin. One block, visually unlike the rocks in nearby outcrops and drillholes, was sulphide-rich and assayed 1.265% copper, 3.24% zinc, 0.199 gpt gold and 16.45 gpt silver.

This polymetallic mineralized block supports the interpretation of the upslope location of the bedrock source of the MMI anomaly.

Playfair plans continued shallow drilling to trace the MMI copper anomaly upslope to its bedrock source.

Sample Analysis and QA/QC Program

Samples from the 2021 drilling were cut and sent for analysis. Preparation was at the Malå, Sweden ALS laboratory with analysis at the Loughrea, Ireland ALS laboratory.

ALS Minerals is internationally recognized as the global leader in providing geochemical sample preparation, analytical procedures, and data management solutions, with its European hub lab based in Loughrea, Co. Galway.

Playfair Mining uses a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program that monitors the chain of custody of samples and includes the insertion of blanks, duplicates, and reference standards in each batch of samples sent for analysis. Drill core is photographed, logged, and cut in half with one half retained in a secured location for verification purposes and one half shipped for analysis. Sample preparation (crushing and pulverizing) is performed at ALS Geochemistry, an independent ISO 9001:2001 certified laboratory, in Malå, Sweden and pulps are sent to ALS Geochemistry in Loughrea, Ireland for analyses.

The entire sample is crushed to 70% passing -2 mm and a riffle split of 250 grams is taken and pulverized to better than 85% passing 75 microns (PUL-31). Samples are analyzed by multi-acid (4-acid) digestion/ICP-MS Package for 48 Elements (ME-MS-61). Additionally, samples are analyzed for Au, Pt and Pd using a standard fire assay from a 30-gram pulp (PGM-ICP23). Overlimit sample values for silver (>100 g/t), lead (>1%), zinc (>1%), and copper (>1%) are re-assayed using a four-acid digestion overlimit method with ICP-AES (ME-OG62). No QA/QC issues were noted with the results reported herein.

Drill Moving to Second Target at Playfair’s RKV Copper Project, Norway

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 8, 2021) – Playfair’s (TSXV: PLY) (FSE: P1J1) (OTC Pink: PLYFF) extensive drill program on its large (201 square kilometers) 100% RKV Copper Project in South Central Norway has successfully completed four short holes totaling 154.6 metres to test the Rødalen target identified by using a combination of Artificial Intelligence (CARDS) and Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) geochemistry. The drill is now being moved to Storboren, the second of seven targets to be tested.

Local geological supervision is provided by Promin (a Trondheim-based consultancy). All four holes intersected a previously unknown amphibolite unit containing sulphides, including narrow widths of massive sulphides at the contact with the quartz-mica-schist country rock at Rødalen. Copper mineralization at the nearby historic mines of Røstvangen and Kvikne is closely associated with amphibolite.

Drilling Underway at Playfair’s RKV Copper Project, Norway

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 27, 2021) – Playfair’s (TSXV: PLY) (FSE: P1J1) (OTC Pink: PLYFF) NQ core drilling program on its large (201 square kilometers) 100% owned RKV Copper Project in South Central Norway is in progress at the Rødalen high copper MMI anomaly, the first of seven drill targets delineated by Playfair in five areas. Drill Notifications have been made and approved for 38 initial drillholes and up to 122 additional holes dependent on results.

Don Moore, CEO of Playfair, comments, “It’s a long and winding road to discovery. After over two years of methodical exploration using modern methods in an almost 400-year-old under-explored mining district Playfair has defined seven high priority drill targets in five areas. We have now started our drill program to test these compelling targets.”

In keeping with Playfair’s intent to minimise the impact of its exploration on the natural environment Playfair is using a lightweight drilling machine which can be disassembled and hand-carried to the drill sites. Although lightweight the drill is capable of drilling to 150m depth using BQ sized rods (36.5 mm or 1.437 inches core diameter) and to 100m depth using NQ sized rods (47.8mm or 1.872 inches core diameter).

A short MMI Report by SGS states that values greater than 6,000 ppb MMI Cu “are likely to be associated with weathering copper sulphides.”

The Rødalen drill target is less than 350 metres east of the former Rødalen Mine. The large anomaly is open to the North and extends over an area 300m long by up to 100m wide. The highest MMI copper value is 14,700ppb, 108 times the background value of 136.5 ppb. There is no record of previous exploration in the immediate vicinity of the anomaly.

The Norwegian Geological Survey (NGU) reports:

“The Rødalen deposit was mined in the period between 1750 to 1810, with further exploration until 1918. About 40,000 tonnes of copper-rich ore was produced. The deposit is hosted by quartzite and thin horizons of amphibolite in generally calcareous biotite mica schist of the Gula group. The mineralization is totally covered by waste, but old reports describe the ore as 1-2 m wide ore zones rich in chalcopyrite and zones of massive pyrite and pyrrhotite.”

NGU further reports that samples taken from the dump by NGU geologists contained up to 1.81% copper and 0.96 gpt gold.

Playfair Mobilizes for Drilling at RKV Copper Project, Norway

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 23, 2021) – Playfair’s (TSXV: PLY) (FSE: P1J1) (OTC Pink: PLYFF) core drilling program on its large (201 square kilometers) 100% owned RKV Copper Project in South Central Norway is expected to start in early September. Playfair has delineated seven drill targets in five areas, Drill Notifications have been made and necessary permits are approved.

Playfair, as a responsible mineral explorer, values protecting the natural environment it works in. Playfair uses new technologies and methods to reduce the impact of its exploration. Playfair’s exploration to date has been in three phases.

The first phase of Playfair’s exploration used non-invasive machine learning algorithms to reinterpret existing geochemical-geological-geophysical data sets and outline potential exploration target areas with similarities to known mineral occurrences.

The second phase of Playfair’s exploration was minimally invasive. In the areas outlined as possibly favourable by the machine learning algorithms small pits were dug by hand, samples of soil were removed, and the pits refilled. There was no off-road driving. Subsequent chemical analysis outlined areas with a high content of copper or other elements of interest.

The third phase of Playfair’s exploration measured the intensity of the earth’s magnetic field in some of the areas where a high copper content was found in soils. Variations in the magnetic field provide important information about the underlying bedrock. The survey was non-intrusive and used an unmanned drone to carry the measuring equipment.

The seven drill targets were previously described: Storboren (November 07, 2019, and December 05, 2019, News Releases), Sæterfjellet, (January 06, 2021, News Release), Kletten North and Kletten South (January 28, 2021, News Release), Røstvangen Northeast and Røstvangen Southwest (February 17, 2021, News Release) and Rødalen (March 11, 2021, News Release).

The drill targets are MMI (Mobile Metal Ion) copper anomalies discovered by sampling target areas generated by Windfall Geotek (TSXV: WIN) (OTCQB: WINKF) using their proprietary Computer Aided Resources Detection System (CARDS).

All seven drill targets show compelling coherent MMI Cu anomalies with multiple MMI Cu values greater than 6,000 ppb. The highest value recorded was 53,300 ppb MMI Cu. A short MMI Report by SGS states that values greater than 6,000 ppb MMI Cu “are likely to be associated with weathering copper sulphides.”

Playfair’s fourth phase of exploration is planned to begin in September 2021. In keeping with Playfair’s intent to minimise the impact of its exploration on the natural environment Playfair will use a lightweight drilling machine which can be disassembled and hand-carried to the drill sites. Playfair’s man-portable drill has now arrived in Norway, cleared customs and has been transported to Tynset, approximately 25 km from Rødalen, the first drill target. With a population of 5,400, Tynset is the municipal centre of the Nord-Østerdalen region. Arctic Drilling As., a local Norwegian Company will carry out the drilling.
