Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 30, 2022) - Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) ("Brascan" or the "Company") is pleased to update progress on the field program underway at Alegre Gold Project (the "Project") in Pará State northern Brazil. The Alegre Gold Project operates under an earn-in option agreement with field services provided by underlying claims holder Chapada Brasil Mineração (CBM). The earn-in option allows Brascan to acquire 100% interest in the Alegre Gold Project.

Field crews have completed the first high-resolution airborne magnetic survey over the most prospective gold producing areas of the Alegre Property. The survey used Avant Geofisica's airborne hybrid UAV (gas/electric drone) system flying at 50 m line spacing. This high-resolution survey detected several distinct linear anomalies suggestive of bedrock geological structures, some of which are closely associated with the large scale artisanal gold mines (garimpos) that have been producing gold in the area. Brascan has contracted a structural geology mapping specialist to map the garimpeiro pits and determine any relation to the linear features detected from the drone magnetic survey, with the goal of developing drill targets.

The field crews have also advanced line-cutting for a ground grid for geophysics, geochemistry and geological mapping surveys. The ground grid is more than 90% complete.

Brascan believes the gold mineralization targeted by the garimpeiros in weathered near-surface rocks, and likely extends into the bedrock following the structures defined from surface mapping and geophysical surveys. Detailed definition of these structures is expected to produce bedrock drill targets associated with the gold mineralization.

The Alegre project is located on the same gold mineralization trend as Goldmining Inc.'s advanced Cachoeira gold project 15 km to the north and Oz Minerals' CentroGold Project 30 km to the south (considered one of Brazil's largest undeveloped gold projects). The mineral rights registry of the Agência Nacional de Mineração of Brazil shows that other adjacent neighbors to the Alegre Gold Project include subsidiaries of major gold producers Kinross and IAM Gold Corp.
