Grande Prairie, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – September 30, 2021) – Angkor Resources Corp. (TSXV: ANK) (OTC Pink: ANKOF) (“Angkor” or “the Company”) announces verification for new mineral license status on Andong Meas and Oyadao North licenses, application for a new copper/gold 200-km2 license and cancellation of two previous licenses.

CEO Delayne Weeks describes licensing in Cambodia, “All the permitting was delayed due to restrictions with COVID over the past year. We made the best of that period to complete our review and assessment of our existing licenses and other new licenses for their potential to bring shareholder value in the near term.”

After several months of study, the Company has also applied for a highly-prospective copper/gold license of 200 square kilometers in size as an additional new license.

The Company applied for new license status on two of its properties to provide an initial 3-year term and two additional renewal terms of two years each. At the same time, the Company cancelled renewals on Oyadao South and Banlung South. Weeks added, “We feel our other licences are far more prospective for minerals, will allow for better use of our resources, and this pivot is consistent with our strategic review.”

During the past year and through COVID restrictions, the Cambodia exploration teams completed extensive exploration on Canada Wall, Gossan Hills, and Wild Boar prospects on the Andong Meas license and further Induced Polarization on the Oyadao North license. Identifying solid drill targets for the upcoming season was the goal of the exploration work. Processing of samples and analysis from the two licenses is ongoing now during the rainy season to finalize drill targets, with drilling to start in mid to late November at the end of rainy season.

During the past four months, the Company has also completed an extensive study on the third new license application area and already has identified drill targets there as well.

VP Exploration, Dennis Ouellette comments, “Andong Meas has provided several enticing results from both new and previous prospects. Both copper and gold results plus the ‘cradle-to-grave’ agreement with the local Indigenous Communities indicate the strong potential of the license. Oyadao North license sits directly north of the PS mine site making the southern part of the license a probable extension of the veins but additionally, Oyadao North has several prospects on the northern part of the license that require additional exploration. And the third license currently under application holds great potential, making the upcoming year exciting with advanced exploration and drilling plans.”

QUALIFIED PERSON

Dennis Ouellette, B.Sc, P.Geo., is a member of The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA #104257) and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”). He is the Company’s VP Exploration on site and has approved the technical disclosure in this document.

About Condor Gold plc:

Condor Gold plc was admitted to AIM in May 2006 and dual listed on the TSX in January 2018. The Company is a gold exploration and development company with a focus on Nicaragua.

In August 2018, the Company announced that the Ministry of the Environment in Nicaragua had granted the Environmental Permit (“EP“) for the development, construction and operation of a processing plant with capacity to process up to 2,800 tonnes per day at its wholly-owned La India gold Project (“La India Project”). The EP is considered the master permit for mining operations in Nicaragua.

La India Project contains a Mineral Resource of 9,850 Kt at 3.6 g/t gold for 1.14 M oz gold in the Indicated category and 8,479 Kt at 4.3 g/t gold for 1.18 M oz gold in the Inferred category. A gold price of $1,500/oz and a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t and 2.0 g/t gold were assumed for open pit and underground resources, respectively. A cut-off grade of 1.5 g/t gold was furthermore applied within a part of the Inferred Resource. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that any part of the Mineral Resources will be converted to Mineral Reserves.

Environmental Permits were granted in April and May 2020 for the Mestiza and America open pits respectively, both located close to La India. The Mestiza open pit hosts 92 Kt at a grade of 12.1 g/t gold (36,000 oz contained gold) in the Indicated Mineral Resource category and 341 Kt at a grade of 7.7 g/t gold (85,000 oz contained gold) in the Inferred Mineral Resource category. The America open pit hosts 114 Kt at a grade of 8.1 g/t gold (30,000 oz) in the Indicated Mineral Resource category and 677 Kt at a grade of 3.1 g/t gold (67,000 oz) in the Inferred Mineral Resource category. Following the permitting of the Mestiza and America open pits, together with the La India Open Pit Condor has 1.12 M oz gold open pit Mineral Resources permitted for extraction.

Technical Glossary

Assay

The laboratory test conducted to determine the proportion of a mineral within a rock or other material. Usually reported as parts per million which is equivalent to grams of the mineral (i.e., gold) per tonne of rock

ARDML

Acid rock drainage and metal leaching

Au

Gold

Grade

The proportion of a mineral within a rock or other material. For gold mineralisation this is usually reported as grams of gold per tonne of rock (g/t)

g/t

grams per tonne

Indicated Mineral Resource

That part of a Mineral Resource for which tonnage, densities, shape, physical characteristics, grade and mineral content can be estimated with a reasonable level of confidence. It is based on exploration, sampling and testing information gathered through appropriate techniques from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes. The locations are too widely or inappropriately spaced to confirm geological and/or grade continuity but are spaced closely enough for continuity to be assumed.

Inferred Mineral Resource

That part of a Mineral Resource for which tonnage, grade and mineral content can be estimated with a low level of confidence. It is inferred from geological evidence and assumed but not verified geological and/or grade continuity. It is based on information gathered through appropriate techniques from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes that may be limited, or of uncertain quality and reliability,

IRR

The Internal Rate of Return (IRR) is the discount rate that makes the net present value (NPV) of a project zero. In other words, it is the expected compound annual rate of return that will be earned on a project or investment

Kt

Thousand tonnes

Mineral Resource Estimate

A concentration or occurrence of material of economic interest in or on the Earth’s crust in such a form, quality, and quantity that there are reasonable and realistic prospects for eventual economic extraction. The location, quantity, grade, continuity and other geological characteristics of a Mineral Resource are known, estimated from specific geological knowledge, or interpreted from a well constrained and portrayed geological model.

NI 43-101

Canadian National Instrument 43-101 a common standard for reporting of identified mineral resources and ore reserves

NPV

Net Present Value (NPV) is the value of all future cash flows (positive and negative) over the entire life of an investment discounted to the present. NPV analysis is a form of intrinsic valuation and is used extensively across finance and accounting for determining the value of a business, investment security, capital project, new venture, cost reduction program, and anything that involves cash flow. It is after deducting the upfront capital cost

Open pit mining

A method of extracting minerals from the earth by excavating downwards from the surface such that the ore is extracted in the open air (as opposed to underground mining).

Vein

A sheet-like body of crystallised minerals within a rock, generally forming in a discontinuity or crack between two rock masses. Economic concentrations of gold are often contained within vein minerals.
