("AfriTin" or the "Company")

Uis Exploration Drilling Update

AfriTin Mining Limited (AIM: ATM), a mining company with a portfolio of near production tin assets in Namibia and South Africa, with its flagship asset, the Uis Tin Mine ("Uis") in Namibia, is pleased to provide an update on the drilling programme designed to support the declaration of a Mineral Resource estimate on the V1 and V2 pegmatite.

Highlights

▪     Receipt of the remaining assay results (ten holes) from the resource validation drilling;

▪     Significant intersections include;

40.50m @ 0.15% Sn and 108ppm Ta in drill hole V1V2012

108.97m @ 0.17% Sn and 56ppm Ta in drill hole V1V2013

86.51m @ 0.16% Sn and 69ppm Ta in drill hole V1V2017

18.80m @ 0.19% Sn and 126ppm Ta in drill hole V1V2018

In Q4 2018, AfriTin initiated an exploration drilling programme aimed at validating the historic information disclosed by SRK in 1985, for ISCOR, for the V1 and V2 pegmatites and supporting the declaration of a maiden, JORC (2012)-compliant, Mineral Resource estimate on the V1 and V2 pegmatites at the Uis Project.

The completion of the validation drilling at Uis was announced on 20 May 2019. The results reported here represent the remaining ten drill holes, of twenty in total, recommended for the validation of the historic resource. The analytical results indicate continuity of the pegmatite bodies reported in the previous set of drilling results.

In areas where the units are separated into upper, middle and lower the drill hole intercepted a xenolith of country rock which separates the pegmatite body. Sample analysis was undertaken by UIS Analytical Services. The major and minor elements were analysed by ICP-OES and the trace elements were analysed by ICP-MS.

Results received from the current campaign are considered comparable, subject to additional validation work, to those reported by SRK (1985), both in terms of geological validation of the current geological model, and in terms of tin (Sn) grade, with SRK (1985) reporting an average grade of 0.14 % Sn for the V1 and V2 pegmatites.

Anthony Viljoen, CEO of AfriTin Mining Limited commented:

 

"The conclusion of the confirmatory drilling programme is a significant milestone towards the declaration of a mineral resource estimate.  Importantly from this set of results an intersection of 108.97 metres at 0.17% Sn indicates that the V1 and V2 pegmatites thicken with depth.  In addition, the notable grades of the ancillary elements points to the potential for multiple revenue streams as the project advances."

 

Competent Person Statement:

The technical data in this announcement has been reviewed by Dr Brendan Clarke of CSA Global, who provides geological consulting services to AfriTin. Dr Clarke is Manager - Africa for CSA Global and has 20 years of industry related exploration and mineral project development experience and is a Competent Person for the reporting of Exploration results. He has reviewed both the technical disclosures in this release as well as the quality assurance protocols and results for the assay campaign. Dr Clarke is satisfied that the results of the QAQC on the assay results released to date are sufficient to support the planned estimation of Mineral Resources.
