Ridgeline Minerals Commences Drill Program at the Selena CRD Project, Nevada

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 24, 2023) – Ridgeline Minerals Corp. (TSXV: RDG) (OTCQB: RDGMF) (FSE: 0GC0) (“Ridgeline” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of the Company’s diamond core drill program at the Selena project (“Selena”). Selena is host to a silver (“Ag”) – gold (“Au”) – lead (“Pb”) – zinc (“Zn”) carbonate replacement (“CRD”) style discovery located in White Pine County, Nevada (Figure 1).

The drill program has been designed to follow-up on bonanza grade CRD intercepts drilled at the Chinchilla zone in 2022, with highlights including 6.1 meters (“m”) grading 480 grams per tonne (“g/t”) Ag, 12.0% Pb, 6.4% Zn, and 0.1 g/t Au in SE22-045 and 0.5 m grading 1,793 g/t Ag, 2.2% tungsten (“W”) and 0.5% copper (“Cu”) in SE22-039 (see January 24, 2023 press release HERE). The program will complete up to six (6) core holes for a total of 3,000 m with results to be released as they are received (Figure 2).

Mike Harp, Vice President, Exploration commented, “Last year’s program delivered the best intercepts in the project’s history. It also confirmed our theory that core drilling would significantly upgrade historical reverse circulation assay results, indicating substantial upside as we convert historically drilled RC intercepts to core. Our 2023 program will build off that success and focus on expanding the high-grade mineralization at two known “chimney” or feeder structures that make up the core of the Chinchilla Zone. We will also drill the lower half of the Guilmette Limestone host rocks, which we believe have potential to host multiple stacked CRD horizons adjacent to known chimney structures.”

Selena Project
Selena is located in White Pine County, Nevada, approximately 64 kilometers (“km”) north of the town of Ely, NV. The project shares a property boundary with the Butte Valley project, a US $33M earn-in agreement between Freeport-McMoRan and Falcon Butte Minerals. The 100% owned project is comprised of 39 square kms of highly prospective exploration ground including Ridgeline’s shallow-oxide Ag-Au-Pb-Zn Chinchilla discovery. Subsequent drilling has continued to highlight the potential for high-grade CRD type mineralization (Ag-Au-Pb-Zn ±Cu) between Chinchilla and the Butte Valley Cu-Au-Ag porphyry located directly west of the property. (View the Selena VRIFY Deck Here)

QAQC Procedures
Samples are submitted to American Assay Laboratories (AAL) of Sparks, Nevada, which is a certified and accredited laboratory, independent of the Company. Samples are prepared using industry-standard prep methods and analysed using FA-PB30-ICP (Au; 30 g fire assay) and ICP-5AM48 (48 element Suite; 0.5 g 5-acid digestion/ICP-MS) methods. AAL also undertakes its own internal coarse and pulp duplicate analysis to ensure proper sample preparation and equipment calibration. Ridgeline’s QA/QC program includes regular insertion of CRM standards, duplicates, and blanks into the sample stream with a stringent review of all results completed by the Company’s Qualified Person, Michael T. Harp, Vice President, Exploration.

Technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Michael T. Harp, CPG. the Company’s Vice President, Exploration, who is Ridgeline’s Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 and responsible for technical matters of this release.
