VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FSE:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Phase 3 Exploration Drilling has commenced at its 100% owned Cabin Gold Project, NT, Canada. The goal of the Phase 3 program is to drill the highest-grade proven zones on the project, both at depth, and along surface strike. The Company will be targeting the Arrow Zone and the Beaver Zone during this program, which were the focus of the Company’s Phase 1 and Phase 2 Exploration Programs.
Arrow Zone Phase 3
On November 24, 2020, the Company reported on the confirmation and expansion of the historical results reported on by Aber Resources in the 1980s at the Arrow Zone. Drilling at Arrow (formerly the “Cabin Lake Zone”) in 2020 led to the discovery of a continuous high-grade gold ore shoot that extends 120m at surface, and dips northwest below Cabin Lake. Highlights of the 2020 results include DDH CL-20-08 which intersected 32m of 13.6 g/t Au. Hole CL-20-08 was drilled from the shoreline of Cabin Lake, out underneath the lake (with mineralization starting 12m from surface). The Company’s Phase 3 drill targets are out over the frozen ice of Cabin Lake and are designed to follow the Arrow ore shoot down dip and prove continuity at depths below 60m. The Company is planning a minimum of seven drill holes, averaging approximately 150m per hole at Arrow.

Beaver Zone Phase 3
On December 7, 2021, the Company reported on the infill and delineation of the historic Beaver Zone. Rover’s Dec-2021 drill results more than doubled the historic gold grades reported at Beaver. Highlights of the 2021 results include 6.4m of 4.63 g/t Au, including 2.6m of 7.80 g/t Au in the most southeastern part of the zone. On January 25, 2022, the Company also reported on a large IP anomaly discovery extending 200m southeast of the most southeastern drill hole (DDH CL-21-39) at the Beaver Zone. The IP anomaly has never been drilled and extends southeast parallel to the Arrow Zone. The Company is planning several near surface drill holes to test this anomaly, in the hopes that it will be able to extend the surface strike length at Beaver.
