April 23, 2024 – Trailbreaker Resources Ltd. (TBK.V) (“Trailbreaker” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced its 2024 drill program focussing on the copper-molybdenum (Cu-Mo) porphyry target at its 100% owned Liberty property in central British Columbia (BC). The program comprises up to 2,000 m of diamond drilling, testing a Cu-Mo ± gold (Au) ± silver (Ag) geochemical soil anomaly1 coincident with an induced polarization (IP) chargeability and resistivity anomaly.

A historic drillhole by Rio Tinto returned an interval of 123.1 m grading 0.11% Cu and 0.04% MoS21 from surface to end of hole. This hole was located 300 m directly south of the geophysical and geochemical targets now being tested. The historic drill hole is interpreted by the company as collared at the margin of a mineralized porphyry body. Reprocessing and 3D inversion imaging of the historic IP data were completed earlier this year and is being utilized in the drill targeting process.

Message from the President

We are excited to start the season with the first drill program at Liberty since the 1960s. Historic drill results from the only drillhole to test the porphyry target provide a great anchor to our exploration thesis and prove we are in a mineralized system. The new geophysical and geochemical interpretations of the Cu-Mo system have helped create strong drill targets and we look forward to updating our shareholders as soon as we interpret the results.”  -Daithi Mac Gearailt

Liberty Property Description

The 5,054-hectare Liberty Property is located approximately 60 km northwest of Quesnel, BC. The property is fully accessible by resource roads.

The primary target of the Liberty project is a northwest-trending Cu-Mo ± Au ± Ag Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) soil anomaly1. This overlaps an IP chargeability1 feature on the margin of the granitic intrusion. A historic drill hole to the south of this coincident anomaly returned an interval of 123.1 m of 0.11% Cu and 0.04% MoS21. For more information on this target see our news release dated January 22, 2024 and the Liberty Project webpage.

In addition to the Cu-Mo porphyry target and the Cu-skarn target, which returned assay values of >8.0% Cu from historic trenching2, the expanded property also covers an epithermal gold target, where epithermal vein textures have been observed in a road cut2. Nearby soil and test pit samples returned anomalous grades of gold (Au) and arsenic (As)2. These may represent a lower-temperature epithermal portion of the hydrothermal system
