Second Drill Added At Herbert Gold Project

VANCOUVER - Grande Portage Resources Ltd. commenced drilling using 1 rig (two 12 hour shifts per day) at its Herbert Gold project in S.E. Alaska earlier this month. The Company is also pleased to announce that it has added another drill rig to accelerate its current drill program. This rig is due to arrive and be operational within two weeks. Drilling is currently underway on the eastern extension of the Goat vein. The 2021 drill program will include holes testing the eastern extensions of the Deep Trench vein, and into the deepest central and easternmost sections of the Main vein drilled to date. Additionally, the plans include holes which will further test the Sleeping Giant, Ridge, Floyd and Elusive veins. New holes into the Goat vein will primarily target the eastern extensions of the vein as it approaches the Eastern Boundary fault, in addition to several holes designed to test the Western Boundary fault.

Several of the targets to be drilled on the Main vein are extensions to depth and to the east of well-mineralized holes encountered in 2020 which include 20T-8 (2.63 meters of 18.67g/t Au), 20T-11 (2.83 m @ 5.39 g Au), 20T-7 (2.91m of 7.083g Au), and 20T-6 (1.96m of 7.58g Au). Two of these holes will be the deepest holes drilled on the Main vein (to -400 meters elevation). One of the objectives of this year's program is to continue exploration into areas where the Main and Goat veins may extend into the Western Fault metasediments. This zone has yielded bonanza grade mineralization in a previous drill hole 11I-4 where assays reported 3.04m of 1,328 g/t silver and 3.42 g/t gold including; .93m of 4,010 g/t silver, 7.75 g/t gold.

Grande Portage intends to drill approximately 8000 meters. The Company will drill approximately 25 holes from up to nine separate platforms which will test the Herbert's primary veins and their satellite structures. The 2021 drill program is a continuation of previous drilling which successfully tested multiple gold-quartz veins of the Herbert mesothermal vein system with very encouraging results.

Ian Klassen, CEO, said, "It is a very exciting time for Grande Portage and its shareholders as we accelerate the drill program at the Herbert Gold project. We are pleased with the deposit's growth over the last few years and look forward to continued success during our 2021 season. Our shareholders can expect the first results from this year's drill campaign in late summer and a steady flow of drill results throughout the remainder of 2021."
