    Trenching results show gold anomalies up to 8 kilometres northeast of Posse

The ongoing aim is to identify potentially economic gold deposits that could add to existing resources and reserves, which could enhance the production profile of the Posse Gold Project."We are starting to realize the district scale potential of the Posse trend,” said Mike Mutchler, Amarillo’s Chief Executive Officer. “These exciting results are consistent with the results of our successful November 2019-February 2020 drill program, which showed the potential for satellite gold deposits at Mara Rosa.“A new resource would give us the option to extend the planned life of the Posse Mine, expand the plant throughput, or some combination of both. This would significantly increase the project’s expected returns.”The surface exploration program focused on three targets. Pastinho, Lambari, and Estrela are located 3.5 kilometres, 4.5 kilometres, and 8.0 kilometres northeast of the Posse Gold Deposit along the Posse North Trend (see Figure 1).Posse North is a northeast trending potassium-radiometric anomaly with coincident gold in soil anomalies greater than 50 parts per billion defined by previous work. Structural features found by airborne magnetics were also useful guides for targeting.A mechanical back-hoe loader dug three-metre-deep trenches generally at every 200 metres. Chip channel samples were taken at one-metre intervals for each trench, which were oriented in a northwest-southeast direction and perpendicular to the main trend of the gold deposits.The key findings of the surface exploration program are: * surface trenching and auger drilling confirm the up-dip extension of the Pastinho gold target * the surface soil anomaly at Pastinho has been defined over a strike length of 1.5 kilometre and remains open along strike to the northeast * there appear to be subparallel gold structures with up to five mineralized gold zones trending northeast along the Pastinho target. * Lambari and Estrela have defined gold anomalies that require follow-up work.The Pastinho target Pastinho is 3.5 kilometres northeast of the Posse Deposit on 6,000 hectares of new exploration tenements that Amarillo gained access to in December 2019. It is a gold mineralized structure approximately 800-900 metres long oriented in a northeast-southwest direction along the same structural trend as the Posse Gold Deposit. The apparent thickness varies from 10-20 metres and dips about 60 degrees northwest.Geologically, Pastinho is similar to Posse. It is characterized by a hydrothermally altered thrusted shear zone developed along the contact between a biotite microcline gneiss (granodiorite composition) and metagabbo and/or amphibolite mafic rocks. There are structural fabrics including mylonites together with hydrothermal alteration minerals like silicification (quartz), biotite, sericite, and carbonate with associated disseminated sulphides that are typically 1-3% pyrite.The results of Amarillo’s most recent diamond drilling are interpreted to have increased the strike extent to 900 metres (see Figure 2) from the 150 metre long zone of near-surface gold mineralization defined by a previous operator. Examples from these drill results include: * hole LMR007A – 18.7 metres grading 0.84 g/t gold. It was oriented with an azimuth of 109.1 degrees and a dip of -50 degrees. * hole 20P109 – 11 metres grading 0.74 g/t gold. It was oriented with an azimuth of 125 degrees and a dip of -59 degrees.Nine trenches (see Figures 3 and 4) were dug totalling 791.6 metres, and 850 samples were tested over a strike length of 1.5 kilometres (see Table 1). Highlights of the results include: * trench 20TCH001 – 20 metres grading 1.034 g/t Au * trench 20TCH002 – 11 metres grading 0.95 g/t Au * trench 20TCH003 – 10 metres grading 1.22 g/t Au * trench 20TCH004 – 5.1 metres grading 3.27 g/t Au * trench 20TCH009 – 17 metres grading 1.46 g/t Au.Significantly, the surface trench work has extended the strike length of the Pastinho gold target to 1.5 kilometres. The current interpretation is that the surface trenching program has outlined the up-dip extension of Pastinho. There appear to be up to five subparallel gold structures dipping northwest approximately 50-60 degrees. Pastinho, which has been drill-tested to a depth of approximately 100 metres, remains open at depth.Lambari Lambari is located approximately 1.0 kilometre northeast of Pastinho, and 4.5 kilometres north of Posse. The geological setting of Lambari is similar to the Posse Gold Deposit and Pastinho.Surface work consisted primarily of shallow auger drilling, which defined two gold in soil anomalies. The first anomaly is located along strike and parallel to Pastinho and has a strike length of approximately 1.0 kilometre. The second gold in soil anomaly occurs to the northeast and is parallel to the first anomaly. It has been defined over a distance 1.5 kilometres.Estrela Estrela is located about 3.5 km northeast and along trend from Pastinho, and approximately 8.0 kilometres northeast of Posse. Estrela is interpreted to occur along the same structural corridor as Posse and Lambari and shares similar geology. Work consisted primarily of shallow surface auger drilling and defined a northeast trending gold in soil anomaly over a strike length of 900 metres.Future exploration program The surface exploration work at Mara Rosa has been successful in better defining the Pastinho, Lombari, and Estrela gold exploration targets.In addition to on-going surface trenching and auger drilling of selected targets, next steps will also include completing a detailed induced polarization ground geophysical survey over each of the targets and a diamond drill program.Ground geophysics is expected to begin in late September or early October, with a diamond drilling program planned to begin in late 2020 or early 2021. Approximately C$1.75 million has been budgeted for exploration at Mara Rosa to the end of 2021.Table 1: Trenching resultsTrench numberNumber of samplesGold structureFrom (metres)To (metres)Length (metres)Gold grade (g/t) 20TCH00196123.0043.0020.001.034   255.0059.004.000.320 20TCH00292123.0034.0011.000.950   254.0058.004.000.222 20TCH00398131.0041.0010.001.220   244.0055.0011.000.341   372.0080.008.000.196   483.0084.001.000.705   594.0095.001.000.246 20TCH00489120.9026.005.103.265   239.0043.004.000.271   352.0053.001.000.491   455.0056.001.005.435   565.0066.001.007.275 20TCH00599131.2039.107.901.524   250.0052.002.000.242   360.0063.003.000.544   468.0071.003.000.388   580.0082.002.001.070 20TCH00676153.3056.002.700.919 20TCH00766158.0059.801.800.393 20TCH007A3210.0019.0019.001.431 20TCH00862147.0055.658.650.918 20TCH008A30122.0023.001.001.642 20TCH00911017.0024.0017.001.461   229.0031.002.000.280   343.1043.900.800.686 FiguresThe following figures illustrate the Pastinho drill target and the Company’s interpretation of the work done to date: * Figure 1 – Posse North Trend * Figure 2 – Location of Pastinho drill holes * Figure 3 – Location of Pastinho trenches * Figure 4 – Plan view of trenches and drill holes along section lines * Figure 5 – Cross-section through Pastinho on section line 12 * Figure 6 – Cross-section through Pastinho on section line 15To view Figure 1: Posse North Trend, please visit the following link: https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/22bdf620-6122-4e29-a756-f1f85ad099ccThis figure shows the potassium radiometric and surface soil anomalies along Posse North Trend.
