ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - 10 mai 2017) - Ressources Explor inc. (« Explor » ou la « Société) (TSX CROISSANCE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANCFORT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) est heureuse d'annoncer les résultats du programme de forage au diamant réalisé sur la propriété Kidd Township au cours de l'hiver. Les propriétés regroupées Kidd Township appartenant à la Société sont situées au nord, au sud, à l'ouest et à l'est du site de la mine Kidd Creek, à environ 20 km au nord de Timmins, Ontario. Les propriétés regroupées d'Explor ont une position de terrain qui couvre environ 2 805,20 hectares. La caractéristique topographique la plus évidente du secteur est la mine à ciel ouvert, située dans la partie centrale des propriétés regroupées Kidd Township d'Explor. Explor a complété en décembre 2016, un programme de géophysique consistant en des levés magnétiques et de type max/min afin de mieux définir les cibles et a complété un programme de forage au diamant de 2 420 mètres. La propriété est située dans une ceinture de roches vertes se composant principalement de séquences de roches méta-volcaniques recoupées par des failles et des zones de déformation s'étendant en direction nord-ouest - sud-est. Il y a également plusieurs séries de roches volcaniques mafiques. La propriété est facilement accessible par la route 655. Entre janvier et mars 2017, un programme de forage au diamant consistant en trois sondages a été entrepris dans le secteur de Timmins sur les propriétés regroupées Kidd Township appartenant à Explor. Les sondages KC-17-07, KC-17-08 et KC-17-09 totalisant 2 420 mètres de carottes de taille NQ, ont été forés dans le canton Carnegie. KC-17-07 a été foré sur le claim 4210980 et les sondages KC 17-08 et KC-17-09 ont été forés sur le claim patenté 4419. Le programme de forage de l'hiver 2017 a été entrepris pour faire un suivi du programme de forage réalisé en 2016 par Explor et pour continuer de vérifier par sondages le conducteur magnétique et électromagnétique orienté est-ouest dans le bloc de claims. Finalement, le programme de forage a été également entrepris pour tenter de reproduire avec le sondage KC-17-07 en aval pendage, des valeurs en zinc aussi élevées que 1,50 % (15 000 ppm Zn) recoupées dans le sondage KC-16-06 au cours du programme de forage été/automne 2016. Le programme de forage de l'hiver 2017 réalisé sur le claim 4210980 et sur le claim patenté 4419 du canton Carnegie avec les sondages KC-17-07, KC-17-08 et KC-17-09, a recoupé des coulées volcaniques mafiques altérées, des coulées de lave en coussins, des brèches de coulées de lave, du grauwacke/argilite, des roches ultramafiques, de la cendre mafique et felsique à tufs de lapilli et des roches clastiques avec des altérations modérées à fortes, de séricite et de silice. La meilleure valeur en zinc de 964 ppm a été recoupée dans le sondage KC-17-07 à l'intérieur d'une faille/cisaillement graphitique, de 292,5 mètres à 294 mètres, avec des veinules de 10 à 15 % de pyrite et de pyrrhotite. Le sondage KC-17-09 a recoupé 551 ppm Zn, de 454,8 mètres à 456 mètres à l'intérieur d'une faille de 10 cm avec <.5% de pyrite dans de l'argilite fragmentée. De même, le sondage KC-17-09 a ramené 408 ppm Zn à partir d'une faille mineure à moellons, de 595,5 mètres à 597 mètres. Même si aucune valeur économique n'a été rencontrée, plusieurs des unités lithologiques et des altérations associées recoupées dans les trois sondages de 2017, sont très similaires aux unités de roches minéralisées à l'intérieur de la mine Kidd Creek, directement au sud. Aucune valeur d'or, de cuivre, de plomb significative n'a été rencontrée. Le programme de forage au diamant de 2017 dans le canton Carnegie, tel qu'entrepris par Explor de janvier à mars 2017, a réussi à vérifier par forage plusieurs cibles de conducteurs magnétiques et électromagnétiques, de même que les structures dans les claims 4210980 et le claim patenté 4419 avec les sondages KC-17-07, KC-17-08 et KC-17-09. Même si aucune valeur économique de zinc, de cuivre, de plomb et d'or n'a été rencontrée, cette phase de forage au diamant a démontré la présence de roches pyroclastiques felsiques altérées grossièrement de silice et de séricite, de sulfures, d'horizons graphitiques exhalatifs et de valeurs de zinc anomales qu'on retrouve généralement associées avec des gisements de SMV de classe mondiale similaires au gisement Kidd Creek, situé immédiatement au sud. Jusqu'à présent, l'extension est-ouest des conducteurs EM dans le canton Carnegie n'a pas été entièrement vérifiée par sondages. De même, le recoupement de roches pyroclastiques altérées de séricite et silice grossière, de sulfures, d'horizons exhalatifs et de roches clastiques mafiques, de matériel graphitique et de sulfures à l'intérieur KC-17-07, KC-17-08 et KC-17-09 suggère une proximité immédiate à un système de cheminée volcanique similaire à ce qui a été découvert à la mine Kidd Creek. Par conséquent, la prochaine phase de forage au diamant devrait se concentrer sur l'extension est-ouest de la caractéristique électromagnétique dans le claim 4210980, à l'est et à l'ouest du 1,5 % (15 000 ppm Zn) obtenu dans le sondage KC-16-03. Le recoupement de roches pyroclastiques modérément ou fortement altérées en silice et séricite, d'argilite graphitique et d'horizons exhalatifs dans le sondage KC-17-09 à l'intérieur du claim patenté 4419 suggère fortement la proximité d'un système de cheminée volcanique similaire à celui découvert dans la mine au sud-est. Par conséquent, un programme de forage modeste se concentrant autour du sondage KC-17-09 et le long de la structure nord-ouest - sud-est pourrait déceler un dépôt de zinc, plomb et cuivre. Explor croit à « l'effet de concentration en grappes des gisements de sulfures massifs volcaniques (SMV) ». Des exemples connus de l'effet de concentration en grappes des gisements SMV est le camp minier de Bathurst où 47 gisements ont été découverts jusqu'à maintenant, dont les mines Brunswick No. 12 et Brunswick No. 6 où plus de 130 000 000 tonnes de minerai de métaux de base ont été produites et le camp minier de Noranda où 18 gisements ont été découverts jusqu'à maintenant, dont une production 68 100 000 tonnes de minerai de métaux de base pour les gisements Horne et Quémont. La présence de roches mafiques et felsiques avec des valeurs anomales de zinc et de cuivre sur les propriétés regroupées Kidd Township avec des valeurs de zinc et de cuivre anomales, corrobore l'opinion que des gisements additionnels de SMV existent à l'intérieur des propriétés regroupées Kidd Township situées dans le camp minier de Timmins/Porcupine, tel que présenté dans la carte ci-jointe.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 12, 2017) - NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Kootenay Zinc Corp. ( : ZNK) ( : KTNNF), an NNW client focused primarily on discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative ("SEDEX") zinc deposits. The publication is entitled, "With Zinc Prices and Global Deficit on the Rise, Savvy Mining Companies are Poised to Profit." It provides an overview on worldwide shortage of zinc, and the various mining companies cashing in on the opportunity to shrink the gap between supply and demand while taking advantage of rising value. "Among these frontrunners is Kootenay Zinc Corporation, a mineral exploration and development company based in Vancouver, BC. Kootenay Zinc is engaged in discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative (SEDEX) zinc deposits and is currently focused on its Sully Property, which is located just 18 miles from the historic Sullivan Mine. The Sullivan Mine was in operation for approximately 100 years and was one of the world's biggest SEDEX silver, zinc and lead deposits, boasting production that, at today's prices, would be valued at US $49 billion. An exciting factor for Kootenay Zinc is that its Sully Project could be, subject to positive drill data, of similar size to the Legendary Sullivan -- an exciting prospect, indeed. "Drilling at the Sully Project, to date, has been a near miss -- which means a strike could be close at hand. Initial surveying at Sully indicated a shallow mass was only narrowly missed by drilling in 2004, and work performed since that time indicated the target was deep. Downhole temperature and magnetic field readings in 2014 indicated the target may have been missed by as little as 100 meters. Geochemical data shows anomalous zinc and lead in the soil, which is possible leakage on structures related to the East mass. New gravity data have confirmed and better defined the mass. The next step for Kootenay Zinc is to target this East mass, and the company has commenced a drilling program." Kootenay Zinc Corp. is a mineral exploration and development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia that is presently targeting the Sully Property. The company is focused on discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative ("SEDEX") deposits. The Sully Property comprises 1,375 hectares located approximately 30 kilometres east of Kimberley, B.C., and overlies rocks of similar age and origin as those which host the world-class Sullivan deposit, owned by Teck Resources Ltd. Sullivan was discovered in 1892, and is known to be one of the largest SEDEX deposits in the world. Over its 100-year lifetime, Sullivan produced approximately 150 million tonnes of ore, including approximately three hundred million ounces of silver, eight million tonnes of zinc and eight million tonnes of lead. The equivalent level of strata as at Sullivan and that formed on the margin of that same basin are present at the Sully Property. The Company cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Sully Property.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 24, 2017) - NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company that delivers a new generation of social communication solutions for business, today announces the online availability of its interview with Kootenay Zinc Corp. ( : KTNNF) ( : ZNK), a mineral exploration and development company focused on discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative ("SEDEX") zinc deposits in Vancouver, British Columbia. The interview can be heard at https://www.networknewswire.com/solutions/corporate-communications/interviews/kootenay-zinc-corp-interview/ Kicking off the interview, NNW's Stuart Smith introduces Stuart (Tookie) Angus, a current independent business advisor to the mining industry and member of Kootenay Zinc's advisory board, who provides a run-down of the company's operations. Kootenay Zinc is focused on the discovery of zinc ore body near the Sullivan Mine, which was previously one of the world's largest zinc/lead/silver deposits. In operation for 100 years, the Sullivan Mine produced over $49 billion value of metal. Now, Kootenay Zinc hopes to replicate that success. "We are about 30 kilometers, or 18 miles, from the mine, with a current drill program underway to try and discover [an extension] for the Sullivan Mine deposit," says Angus. Angus next provides insight into the potential of Kootenay Zinc's mineral property, and notes that the company is adequately financed to carry-out its current drill program. He draws a parallel with the progress of Arizona Mining, a company drilling a large deposit of the same metals in Arizona, which recently carried out a private placement financing of $110 million. "Going back to October of 2015, [Arizona Mining] was a micro-cap company trading at approximately $0.20 a share. Last week it carried out a private placement financing at a price of $2.45 per share, when the previous closing on the stock was $1.89... that $110 million financing was a huge endorsement of that project. So there you have a huge increase in terms of percentage and absolute value for a company that is still in the exploration phase, not yet in development. That's the kind of target Kootenay Zinc is looking for," says Angus. Responsible for leading this charge is a well-qualified management team, including a "top-notch" geologist and geophysicist, which consistently updates shareholders on its progress and goals for 2017. "We have a number of different anomalies that we're going to test. The truth serum in this business is the drill bit. We're going to go in there and bravely drill to see if we can find what we hope is there," Angus says in conclusion.

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - 28 fév. 2017) - Ressources Explor inc. (« Explor » ou la « Société ») (TSX CROISSANCE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANCFORT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) est heureuse d'annoncer l'acquisition de 6 claims miniers (16 unités de claims miniers) situés dans la division minière de Porcupine, district de Cochrane, dans le canton Ogden, en Ontario. Ces claims sont situés dans le canton Ogden au nord et à l'est de la propriété Ogden. La route 101 Ouest est située au nord de la propriété et procure un excellent accès à la ville de Timmins. Les claims ont été acquis en raison des résultats encourageants obtenus lors de l'exploration précédente d'Explor sur cette propriété. Ressources Explor inc. versera 10 000 $ CDN et émettra 500 000 actions ordinaires pour acquérir un intérêt de 100 % dans les claims additionnels de la propriété Ogden. Les vendeurs ont conservé une redevance NSR de 2 % dans la propriété. Cette acquisition est assujettie à l'approbation de la Bourse de croissance TSX. Avec cette acquisition, la propriété Ogden consiste maintenant en 21 claims miniers (115 unités de claim miniers) couvrant 1 844 hectares situés dans la division minière de Porcupine, district de Cochrane dans les cantons Ogden et Price. La propriété Ogden a été préalablement explorée par Hollinger Mines, Tex-Sol Exploration, Inmet Mining Corporation, Amax Mineral Exploration, Noranda Exploration et Exploration Knick. La majorité des sondages forés par les exploitants précédents avaient moins de 100 mètres de longueur. Historiquement, sur la propriété Ogden, le seul sondage qui a recoupé de la minéralisation significative est le forage au diamant réalisé par Tex-Sol Exploration en 1965 qui a retourné 6,0 g/t Au sur 9,1 m à une faible profondeur. Sur la propriété aurifère TPW, de la minéralisation à teneur plus élevée a été recoupée sous les 300 mètres d'une profondeur verticale, ce qui requiert des sondages de 500 à 600 mètres de longueur. Explor a réalisé un programme de forage sur la propriété Ogden avec les résultats encourageants suivants : Sondage #OG-16-02 a recoupé 2,06 g/t Au sur 1,50 mètres de 154,5 mètres à 156,0 mètres Sondage #OG-16-05 a recoupé 1,99 g/t Au sur 1,80 mètres de 438,0 mètres à 439,8 mètres. Le programme d'exploration préliminaire consistait en six sondages NQ pour un total de 3 648 mètres de forage au diamant. Les sondages avaient en moyenne 600 mètres de longueur. L'objectif préliminaire de ce programme de forage au diamant était de vérifier les cibles de polarisation induite (IP) et d'identifier si la propriété contenait de la géologie favorable pour héberger de la minéralisation aurifère. Le programme de forage au diamant a utilisé les cibles géophysiques identifiées par le programme de levés géophysiques au sol réalisé par Explor et les travaux de polarisation induite (IP) effectués par Imnet et Exploration Knick. Le programme a été une réussite dans le sens que toutes les cibles IP ont été recoupées. L'environnement géologique identifié est très similaire à celui de la propriété Timmins Porcupine West. Le type de roches recoupées incluait du porphyre de quart-feldspathique (PQF), des roches mafiques volcaniques et des zones de sulfures contenant de la minéralisation de pyrite à grain fin. Les dépôts les plus importants à Timmins sont associés dans l'espace à des unités de porphyres qui sont à proximité de la faille de Porcupine-Destor. Les dépôts semblent également être associés à des failles divergentes qui vont vers le nord de la faille de Porcupine-Destor à l'intérieur d'un corridor d'une faille divergente qui a été interprétée. Chris Dupont, ingénieur, est la personne qualifiée responsable de l'information contenue dans le présent communiqué de presse.

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 28, 2017) - Explor Resources Inc. ("Explor" or "the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 6 mining claims (16 mineral claim units) situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden Township, Ontario. These claims are located in Ogden Township to the North and East of the Ogden Property. Highway 101 West is north of the property and provided excellent access to the city of Timmins. The claims were acquired because of encouraging results obtained in Explor's past exploration on this property. Explor Resources Inc. will pay CDN $10,000 and issue 500,000 common shares to acquire a 100% interest in the additional Ogden claims. The optionors have retained a 2% NSR in the property. This acquisition is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. With this acquisition, the Ogden property now consists of 21 mining claims (115 mineral claim units) covering 1,844 hectares situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden Township, Ontario. The Ogden property has been previously explored by Hollinger Mines, Tex-Sol Exploration, Inmet Mining Corporation, Amax Mineral Exploration, Noranda Exploration and Knick Exploration. The majority of the holes drilled by previous operators were less than 100 meters in length. Historically on the Ogden Property, the only hole that hit significant mineralization was a diamond drill hole by Tex-Sol Exploration in 1965 which returned 6.0 g/t Au over 9.1 m at a shallow depth. On the TPW Gold Property significant mineralization was intersected below 300 meters of vertical depth requiring drill holes of 500 to 600 m in length. Explor has completed a drill program on the Ogden Property with the following encouraging results: Hole #OG-16-02 intersected 2.06 g/t Au over 1.50m from 154.5 to 156.0 meters Hole #OG-16-05 intersected 1.99 g/t Au over 1.80m from 438.0 to 439.8 meters. The preliminary exploration program conducted by Explor consisted of six NQ holes for a total of 3,648 meters of diamond drilling. The holes averaged 600 meters in length. The property was found to contained favourable geology to host gold mineralization. The diamond drill program used geophysical targets identified by Explor's ground geophysical surveys conducted by Explor and Knick Exploration. The program was successful in that all IP targets were intersected. The geological environment identified was similar to the Timmins Porcupine West Property. Rock type intersected included Quartz Feldspar Porphyry (QFP), Mafic Volcanics, and Sulfide zones containing fine grain pyrite mineralization. The most significant deposits in Timmins are spatially associated with porphyry units that are in proximity to the Porcupine Destor Fault. The deposits appear to be also associated with splay faults that trend off and to the North of the Porcupine Destor fault inside an interpreted splay fault corridor. Chris Dupont P.Eng is the qualified person responsible for the information contained in this release. Explor Resources invites investors to visit our booth at the following conference: Booth #2122 at the Investor Exchange of the PDAC 2017 located in the south building of the Metro Toronto Convention Center from March 5 to March 8, 2017.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 24, 2017) - Kootenay Zinc Corp. (the "Company") (CSE:ZNK)(CSE:ZNK.CN) announces that its drilling contractor, FB Drilling of Cranbrook, B.C. has mobilized to the Sully Property and will re-commence the planned drilling program shortly. Drill hole SY17-11 will continue to focus on the E1 Zone of the Project's EAST Anomaly Area. This hole will test the current model of gravity data as a stratabound feature constrained by the most recent detailed structural and stratigraphic trends determined from drilling in late 2016. Mr. Brian Jones, principal of Excel Geophysics and advisor to the Company, stated: "Every additional gravity survey at Sully has confirmed the presence of significant size masses on the property; recent gravity modeling which evaluated the complex structural trends in the local area of E1 has also maintained the inferred size while more narrowly constraining location of the target." The Company will also be conducting new downhole EM and Mag survey trials on holes SY16-10 and SY17-11, to expand geophysical definition of the targets and perhaps assist in defining their geometry. The project team has also developed plans for subsequent drill holes on E1 and on the larger E3 anomaly after SY17-11 is completed. Kootenay Zinc Corp. is a mineral exploration and development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia that is presently targeting the Sully Property. The Company is focused on discovering large-scale sedimentary-exhalative ("SEDEX") deposits. The Sully Property comprises 1,375 hectares located approximately 30 kilometres east of Kimberley, B.C., and overlies rocks of similar age and origin as those which host the world-class Sullivan deposit, owned by Teck Resources Ltd. Sullivan was discovered in 1892, and is known to be one of the largest SEDEX deposits in the world. Over its 100-year lifetime, Sullivan produced approximately 150 million tonnes of ore, including approximately three hundred million ounces of silver, eight million tonnes of zinc and eight million tonnes of lead. The equivalent level of strata as at Sullivan and that formed on the margin of that same basin are present at the Sully Property. The Company cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Sully Property. The scientific and technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by the Company's Project Manager, Paul Ransom, P.Geo., a "Qualified Person" as defined in National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. On behalf of the Board of Directors This news release includes certain statements that constitute "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable securities law, including without limitation, statements that address the Sully Property, comments regarding the timing and content of upcoming work programs, geological interpretations, costs and timing of future exploration and development, requirements for additional capital, other statements relating to the financial and business prospects of the Company.

These statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on forecasts of future results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", "plans", "estimates" or "intends", or stating that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved), and variations of such words, and similar expressions are not statements of historical fact and may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statement are necessarily based upon a number of factors that, if untrue, could cause the actual results, performances or achievements of the Company to be materially different from future results, performances or achievements express or implied by such statements. Such statements and information are based on numerous assumptions regarding present and future business strategies and the environment in which the Company will operate in the future, including the price of zinc and other metals, anticipated costs and the ability to achieve goals. While such estimates and assumptions are considered reasonable by the management of the Company, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive and regulatory uncertainties and risks. Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual events, level of activity, performance or results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: (i) risks related to zinc, base metal and other commodity price fluctuations; (ii) risks and uncertainties relating to the interpretation of exploration results; (iii) risks related to the inherent uncertainty of exploration and cost estimates and the potential for unexpected costs and expenses; (iv) that resource exploration and development is a speculative business; (v) that the Company may lose or abandon its property interests or may fail to receive necessary licences and permits; (vi) that environmental laws and regulations may become more onerous; (vii) that the Company may not be able to raise additional funds when necessary; (viii) the possibility that future exploration, development or mining results will not be consistent with the Company's expectations; (ix) exploration and development risks, including risks related to accidents, equipment breakdowns, labour disputes or other unanticipated difficulties with or interruptions in exploration and development; (x) competition; (xi) the potential for delays in exploration or development activities or the completion of geologic reports or studies; (xii) the uncertainty of profitability based upon the Company's history of losses; (xiii) risks related to environmental regulation and liability; (xiv) risks associated with failure to maintain community acceptance, agreements and permissions (generally referred to as "social licence"); (xv) risks relating to obtaining and maintaining all necessary government permits, approvals and authorizations relating to the continued exploration and development of the Company's projects; (xvi) risks related to the outcome of legal actions; (xvii) political and regulatory risks associated with mining and exploration; (xix) risks related to current global financial conditions; and (xx) other risks and uncertainties related to the Company's prospects, properties and business strategy. These risks, as well as others, could cause actual results and events to vary significantly. There can be no assurance that planned exploration will be completed as proposed or at all, or that economic resources will be discovered or developed at the Sully Property. Accordingly, actual results may differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward looking statements include, but are not limited to, continued availability of capital and financing and general economic, market or business conditions, the loss of key directors, employees, advisors or consultants and fees charged by service providers.
