Aben Resources Announces Analytical Results from Sampling at Forrest Kerr Gold
Project in B.C.’s Golden Triangle

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, 2016-11-10 19:58 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:ABN) (OTCBB:ABNAF) (Frankfurt:E2L2) (“Aben” or the
“Company”) is pleased to provide a summary of analytical results from the
September 2016 surface sampling program at the Company’s 23,000 hectare Forrest
Kerr Project, located within B.C.’s prolific Golden Triangle region.

A total of 362 soil, 35 rock and 11 stream-sediment samples were collected
between September 8--19, 2016 and transported to AGAT Labs for multi-element
analysis. Samples were sourced from various mineralized zones throughout the
Forrest Kerr claim package with a focus on areas that will promote a greater
understanding and help define existing mineralization patterns in advance of a
planned drill program in 2017.

Rock samples were sourced from both outcrop and talus from various areas across
the Forrest Kerr Property and showed a range of values from 0.002 to 48.1 g/t
gold (0.00006 to 1.4 oz/ton gold).

Several rock grab samples were collected from two distinct zones located in the
northern portion of the claim block. Samples from the Wedge zone returned high
base- and precious-metal values over a strike length exceeding 2 kilometers.
The results confirmed historically reported values from drilling and surface
sampling in this area. At the Boundary Zone, rock samples taken from subcrop in
the vicinity of diamond drill hole RG91-16 (73 g/t gold (2.15 oz/ton gold),
14.7g/t silver (0.43 oz/ton silver), 0.32% copper over 3.7m) showed
correspondingly strong gold and copper mineralization (Sample 6632019). The
prime objective of the rock sampling program was to both confirm previously
reported mineralization and to provide further information about the
association of base- and precious-metal mineralization with recognised
alteration assemblages. The table below shows assay results from select rock
samples.

Soil geochemical surveys were completed on six separate grids located adjacent
to known mineralized zones in order to test for potential extensions of
existing soil anomalies and assess their continuity across mapped geologic
structures. The results successfully show an increase in the areal extent of
anomalous levels of gold, copper, lead and zinc in soil while also better
delineating the location of controlling structures. The soil data will be added
to Aben’s existing database of more than 18,000 property-wide soil samples and
evaluated as a whole going forward. Eleven stream-sediment samples were taken
from a drainage on the Beauty 10 claim, which is located 2.5 kilometers east of
the main Aben land package in an area considered highly prospective for silver
mineralization. The assay results from the 11 silt samples show consistently
elevated levels of zinc. Analytical results for silver (Ag) have not yet been
received.

The Forrest Kerr Gold Project is located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of
British Columbia and is considered to hold significant potential for precious
metal mineralization. Numerous mineralized occurrences are documented
throughout the project area and sound, systematic fieldwork conducted from the
late 1980’s to the mid 2000’s provide a solid framework for ongoing fieldwork.
With little activity in the area during the past decade, the area is ripe for
modern exploration techniques. The area has recently seen major infrastructure
improvements including roads and hydro-electric facilities. In addition, rapid
melting rates of glaciers in parts of the property area are expected to provide
new exposures in areas that were inaccessible during previous exploration
campaigns.

The Golden Triangle is host to significant mineral deposits including Galore
Creek, Copper Canyon, Schaft Creek, Valley of the Kings, Snowfield, KSM, Snip,
Granduc, Red-Chris and numerous others.

Aben’s Forrest Kerr land package is located along the Forrest Kerr Fault,
immediately north of the Iskut River and southward of More Creek, with recent
hydro-electric power and road access afforded to the northern and southern
areas of the property. The claims consist of a 40km-long, north-south belt
overlying rocks of the Hazelton and Stuhini Groups, a complex assemblage of
volcanic accumulations with intervening sedimentary sequences which are host to
numerous significant gold deposits in B.C.’s Golden Triangle area.

Cornell McDowell, P.Geo., V.P. of Exploration of Aben Resources, has reviewed
and approved the technical aspects of this news release and is the Qualified
Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Quality Control and Quality Assurance:

All samples were sealed and delivered to AGAT Laboratories preparation facility
in Terrace, B.C. by Aben personnel. Multi-element analysis was completed by
hydrogen peroxide fusion with an ICP-OES finish, while each sample was
fire-assayed for gold with an ICP-OES finish. In addition to the in-house QA/QC
performed by AGAT on 10% of the samples, four field blanks and one duplicate
sample were inserted into the sample stream by Aben personnel. All QA/QC
samples returned values well within acceptable parameters.
