Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 19, 2021) - Bam Bam Resources Corp. (CSE: BBR) (OTC Pink: NPEZF) (FSE: 4NPB) ("Bam Bam" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a drone magnetic survey by Zonge International, Inc. is underway at the Majuba Hill Porphyry Copper Project in Pershing County, Nevada. The magnetic coverage is being expanded because of the very encouraging results from a 2018 ground magnetic survey over part of the project area.

The 2018 ground magnetic survey covered the known oxide, the oxide extension, and the sulfide target zones. Two magnetic lows were interpreted from the data and a distinct association was observed between the magnetic lows and high copper values in historic drilling, surface geochemical sampling, and the historic underground copper mine at Majuba.
High-grade copper values reported from the 2020 Bam Bam drilling program (July 17, 2020 and October 5, 2020) are along the southern edge of the eastern magnetic low. Porphyry-style pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, and arsenopyrite associated with quartz-sericite-pyrite (phyllic) and possible potassic alteration was logged in the recent deep core holes and is highly correlative with the 2018 survey. The detailed magnetic geophysical information from the drone survey will provide guidance for expanding the mineralization at Majuba Hill.
David Greenway, President & CEO, commented: "The porphyry copper fingerprint we are seeing in the geophysical data is very encouraging. I am pleased that we can get the field crews on the project and advance this phase of our 2021 exploration program. Majuba is emerging as a large-scale copper project and working in a safe jurisdiction like Nevada allows Bam Bam to be very effective with our exploration dollars."
About Majuba Hill Property
Majuba Hill is a large contiguous land position controlling the emerging Majuba Hill Copper District, located northeast of Reno, Nevada. The project is comprised of extensive mineral and surface rights held by private ownership, patented mining claims, and Federal Lode Mining claims that are 100% controlled by Bam Bam Resources Corp.
The property is easily accessed via 23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from U.S. Interstate 80. Reno and Elko are the major supply centers for exploration and mining activities in Nevada. The existing highways are sufficient for transportation of exploration-size heavy equipment. Development logistics would use the 4 lane Interstate 80 highway, Union Pacific railroad tracks and adjacent power, natural gas, and fiber optic transmission lines in the rail - highway corridor.
Mining is a common occupation in the area with several small to world class mines operating in the Winnemucca - Lovelock area over the past several decades. A well-trained and experienced mining workforce pool is available in Nevada when labor and expertise are required.
The excellent location of Bam Bam's Majuba Hill property, with already existing mining friendly infrastructure, will significantly reduce costs for exploration programs and future mining activities.

About Bam Bam Resources Corp.
Bam Bam Resources Corp. (CSE: BBR) (OTC Pink: NPEZF) (FSE: 4NPB) is engaged in the identification, review and acquisition of latter stage copper and copper/silver/gold assets. This is in direct response to the growing worldwide demand and lack of supply for precious metals fueled by the Green New Deal in the US and most other developed nations with similar programs aimed at addressing climate change. Such programs are heavily reliant on silver, gold and especially copper to produce Electric Vehicles and other renewable power sources, as well as building infrastructure to provide clean and affordable electricity.
The flagship project is the Majuba Hill copper, silver and gold project located 156 miles outside Reno, Nevada, USA. Management has been mandated to focus on safe, mining friendly jurisdictions and government regulations supportive of mining operations.
