    Montero Awarded Exploration Concessions and Expands Land Package Over Copper Molybdenum Porphyry Target, Chile

    Figure 1 Location of the Avispa Exploration Concessions and major copper mines in northern Chile. Figure 2 Location and geology of the Avispa Concessions Awarded (black) and Concessions in Application (red). TORONTO, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montero Mining and Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: MON) (“Montero” or the “Company”) has been awarded exploration concessions covering 13,200 hectares (the “Avispa project” or “Property”) in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile. More recently the Company submitted 14 new applications covering an additional 3,800 hectares adjoining the Avispa project to control a total of 17,000 hectares. Avispa is located about 40 km west of the Chuquicamata copper mine which is the world’s largest open pit copper mine (Figures 1 & 2). The Avispa project is situated within the defined north to south trending Palaeocene – Eocene Cu-Mo porphyry belt and is located about 40 km north of BHP’s Spence Cu-Mo mine and KGHM’s Sierra Gorda Cu-Mo mine. The geology of the Avispa project area consists of extensive sedimentary evaporite salt deposits intercalated with fine grained clastic sediments of Tertiary age. The sediments largely cover a suite of Palaeocene monzodiorite and diorite porphyries as well as Cretaceous andesitic and diorite porphyries. The Avispa district was previously the target of some wide-spaced exploration drilling by BHP. Avispa is a legacy asset originally acquired in 2019, the Company believes it holds considerable potential for buried porphyry-type Cu-Mo mineralization. Dr. Tony Harwood, President and Chief Executive Officer of Montero commented, “Montero has secured 17,000 hectares in this highly prospective copper district in proximity and in the same geological setting as other significant world class operating Cu-Mo mines. Avispa is a legacy exploration asset that the Company is seeking to monetize and provide Montero shareholders exposure to the burgeoning copper market in the new green economy. Montero’s primary focus remains on advancing the Isabella Au-Ag project in the highly prospective and under-explored Coastal Range of southern Chile.” Figure 1. https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/2e6a141b-00db-409b-9a19-22185ccca064 Figure 2. https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/b837320e-a07b-4315-97e5-a42b3b72e9d0 Montero’s Chief Geologist, Marcial Vergara, is reviewing publicly available data on Avispa and has conducted a field visit.

    Montero Update on Drill Program at The Isabella Gold-Silver Project in Chile

    Figure 1 Isabella Gold Project drill target areas and completed drill holes in each area Figure 2 Target A Drill Hole Locations and Collar Information Figure 3 Cross section of Target A Drillholes ISB20-1 and ISB20-2 TORONTO, April 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montero Mining and Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: MON) has completed a total of 2,088 meters of diamond drilling and testing of 4 vein target areas (Table 1) at its Isabella gold-silver project in Chile. A total of 19 drill holes have been completed to date where multiple quartz veins and enclosing leucogranite microgranite were intersected in 17 holes. Half-core samples have been submitted to Andes Analytical Assay (AAA) and check assays to ALS Chile, both in Santiago. Montero has received initial assay results for vein Target area A. Figure 1: https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/db02a2f6-bb6b-48f2-a81d-6a61ec9aebe4 Dr. Tony Harwood, President of Montero commented, “Shallow drilling at Target A intercepted consistent intersections of quartz veins enclosed in a quartz-sericite-pyrite altered leucogranite with anomalous Au Ag values. Assay results from drill holes completed on Targets B, C and D are expected shortly.” At Target A, a total of 10 HQ size diamond drill holes were completed over a total of 1,095 meters. Maximum values of 1.88 g/t Au and 16 g/t Ag were reported from the veins at Target A while assays from the adjacent altered leucogranite also contains low to anomalous Au Ag mineralization.

No significant assay results in drill holes number ISBN20-05, 09 and 10. The quartz veins sampled from drill core are consistent with Au enrichment and concomitant enrichment of Pb and Ba in reported assays of surface vein samples. The enrichment of Ba (4885 ppm), Pb (3346 ppm) and also Mo (262 ppm) and Sb (101 ppm) suggests a complex mineral system with perhaps overprinting of fluid types. This is particularly suggested by a 1 m assay of 0.14 g/t Au, 3 g/t Ag, and 4,885 ppm Ba from a quartz vein at 128.5 m in hole ISB20-08 which would infer the possibility of a deep mineral system. At Target A the holes were located to test a defined system of structurally-controlled quartz veins along approximately 600 meters strike length and to a depth of 20 - 60 meters vertically (Figures 2-3). Several scissor holes were completed to test vein continuity at variable depth along strike. Multiple, steeply-dipping, quartz veins ranging from 0.3 m to 7.5 m in apparent width were intersected. The veins are structurally-controlled, often showing evidence of fault-breccia along vein contacts with the quartz also fractured and brecciated. Poor core recovery was experienced in some of these zones. The veins are invariably hosted within an altered leucogranite which shows pervasive quartz-sericite-pyrite (QSP) alteration. There is evidence of low gold values within the leucogranite where alteration is most intense as shown by Au values up to 0.19 g/t Au with associated Ag (10 g/t), Ba (819 ppm) and Pb (1028 ppm). The leucocratic granite is the preferred host for the quartz veins and likely represents a distinct intrusive phase of the host porphyritic granite. The porphyritic biotite granite when intersected in drill core shows locally intense hematite-chlorite alteration but no observed association with quartz veins. Figure 2: https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/786d2533-3445-45e2-a084-f8ecbf07502d Previous surface mapping and sampling of exposed quartz veins indicated the presence of several quartz veins confined within a 75 m wide zone of altered granite extending 600 m along strike. Surface samples of vein material returned assays up to: 8.53 g/t Au, 11.2 g/t Ag and 7.56 g/t Au, 16.8 g/t Ag. Trenches completed over 300 m strike length of the vein array returned: 6.92 g/t Au over 1 m, 2.88 g/t over 2 m, and 1.42 g/t Au over 12 m (incl. 3.53 g/t Au over 3 m). The vein array is contained within a broader zone of anomalous Pb defined as >100 ppm. Figure 3: https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/eeacc01e-d034-491f-a521-c7e291b854b6 The core received from drilling Target areas B, C & D have been logged and samples submitted to AAA with check assays submitted to ALS. The remaining drilling will commence once current results have been assessed and new drill pads constructed. The balance of results are expected in April 2021 with continuation of drilling to commence soon after.

    Montero Identifies Additional Potential for Sediment-Hosted Mineralization at Isabella Gold Silver Project, Chile

    Figure 1 Isabella Property Map showing district geology with Montero property boundaries and the distribution of a fine-grained leucogranite phase along the margins of a larger granite intrusive. The strong spatial association of mapped quartz veins (in red) with the fine-grained leucogranite is indicated. Figure 2 Isabella Property 3D Google Earth image showing extent of granite intrusive and the distribution of currently defined quartz veins (red) as mapped on surface that occur along the topographic ridge marking the granite contact with older sediments. The distribution of quartz veins along the granite contact is indicated as is the close spatial association of veins with a fine-grained leucocratic phase of the granite. The leucogranite is currently interpreted as a more differentiated intrusive phase. The area of drone magnetic survey completed by previous owner is also shown and detailed below in Figure 3. Figure 3 Displays 1st vertical derivative magnetic image for the Isabella East property. Image shows the occurrence of extensive high magnetic zones within sediments adjacent to the granite contact and the area identified for potential sediment-hosted mineralization. The distribution of surface vein sample assays results for Au g/t are also indicated as are areas of leucogranite. Figure 4 below shows 3D inversion model of the high magnetic zone hosting the breccia. Figure 4 Image of 3D magnetic inversion model showing zone of high magnetics in sediment adjacent to the contact with low magnetic granite. An approximately 1 km long zone of high magnetics is coincident with the occurrence of iron-oxide rich breccia containing anomalous Cu-Zn-Pb. Figure 5 Photos of Fe-oxide rich, brecciated sediment boulders and outcrop (lower right) which occurs associated with high-magnetic zones in the sediments to the south and adjacent to the granite contact. TORONTO, Feb. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montero Mining and Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: MON) (“Montero” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has conducted additional exploration work to support the potential for sediment-hosted mineralization south of the granite-sediment contact within the Isabella Project area. The Isabella Project is located approximately 200 km south of Santiago and 125 km south of Yamana’s Minera Florida mine in the Southern Coastal Range of Chile. Montero’s geologists have analyzed and re-interpreted previous geological, sampling and geophysical work in the area of the granite-sediment contact and has defined initial drill targets to test areas of potential sediment-hosted mineralization. Discovery of such mineralization would present Montero with a potential bulk minable resource target at Isabella. Dr Tony Harwood, President of Montero commented: “I am pleased to announce that Montero has completed additional geological work and geophysical interpretation and shown additional prospectivity for a significant target in the sediments on the Isabella Gold Silver property. The company continues to drill the 4 targets and a further target outlined in the adjacent sediment target and will provide updates as we progress exploration and drilling.” Recent geological mapping by Montero geologists has aided in interpreting the granite intrusive that hosts Au-Ag mineralized quartz veins. The porphyritic granite has been identified as being of Lower Mesozoic (Jurassic to early Cretaceous) and the adjacent sediments as being marine in nature and of Triassic age (Munoz, 1993). Geological mapping revealed a texturally distinct leucocratic granite unit that occurs along the contact between the granite and the sediments in the Isabella area. There appears to be a clear spatial association of veining (shown in red) with the occurrence of the leucogranite (Figure 1). Figure 1: https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/f29399c0-781e-4c68-bd5c-3b04fb6b2a42 Figure 2: https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/83edbd65-d7c0-4fb1-8881-763ab6d7adc8 Montero has completed additional geological mapping and further evaluation of UAV magnetic data from a 2018 survey completed over a central part of the Isabella property. The survey was completed by Santiago-based, GfDas using a drone with a potassium vapour magnetometer. The objective of the survey at the time was to obtain magnetic data for an area of the granite – sediment contact to better understand the structural controls hosting the high-grade Au-Ag quartz vein arrays in the granite. Survey data indicates that the granite is characterized by low-moderate magnetic response whereas the adjacent sediments are marked by discrete zones of high magnetics along the granite contact (Figure 3). Montero geologists have also confirmed occurrence of an area of iron-oxide rich breccia within an area of high magnetics adjacent to the granite-sediment contact and a body of leucogranite. Samples of the iron-oxide breccia returned anomalous concentrations of up to 366 ppm Cu, 408 ppm Zn and 2 g/t Ag (Figure 3). Initial evaluation by Montero of the high magnetic zone hosting the breccias is shown in Figure 4. A 3D inversion model was completed showing that the breccias occur within a discrete zone of high magnetics within a broader magnetic anomaly. Montero will prioritize this area for initial drill testing as part of the current Isabella drill program. Initial field mapping indicates that other high magnetic zones are associated with similar iron-oxide rich brecciated sediment (Figure 5). As such, Montero will complete detailed mapping and sampling over the high magnetic zones to determine the potential for sediment-hosted base metal mineralization related to similar structural controls as those hosting the Au-Ag-bearing quartz veins within the granite.
