COPPERSTONE RESOURCES AB: Geophysical Surveys commence to locate porphyry
copper mineralization targets

Published September 28th 2017

Copperstone Resources AB (“Copperstone” or “the Company”) is pleased to
announce that an integrated geophysical programme, including both a detailed
Ground Magnetic survey and a Natural Audio-Frequency Magnetotellurics (NSAMT)
survey has commenced. The objective of the survey is to locate high quality
geophysical anomalies that will be 3D modelled as drill-ready targets
prospective for discovery of porphyry style copper hydrothermal mineralization.

“These are exciting times for Copperstone and the exploration plans busy
unfolding at our property. We are fortunate to have available some of the
world’s best technical people, and state-of-the-art geophysical techniques at
our disposal for locating the tell-tale signs of large scale porphyry style
mineralization systems at our target areas. We are confident that geophysical
target generation will supplement our geological knowledge and the great
mineral possibilities that lie within that.” comments Chris McKnight, new CEO
for Copperstone.

NSAMT is a world-renown geophysical technique often applied in the discovery
and definition of large-scale porphyry copper mineralization systems. The
survey programme is being carried out by a highly experienced team of appointed
contractors and consultants assembled by Copperstone from Sweden, Germany,
Bulgaria, Burkina Faso and South Africa. The investigation format consists of
approximately 700 station positions (approximately 85 line km) using a 100m x
100m grid spacing, covering both the northern Granliden target and also the
southern Svartliden-Eva target. According to available literature NSAMT is a
passive electromagnetic imaging technique using the earth's magnetotelluric
field to map geological contacts and structure typically to depths of 500
meters or more. With the lower MT frequencies, imaging can be extended deeper.
The ability to identify geological features varies with depth and depends upon
target size, resistivity contrasts and contact geometry. NSAMT is a measure of
natural rock resistivity and can therefore also be used to directly detect
areas of larger scale disseminated copper mineralization as the presence of
sulphide veins can significantly increase local conductivity.

Porphyry copper mineralization is usually characterised by distinctive magnetic
signatures associated with hydrothermal magnetite that forms during the
alteration processes known to occur with this mineralization style. The Company
has also commissioned a new 3D Ground Magnetic survey to be carried out in
conjunction with the NSAMT survey and aid in the interpretation of conductive
anomalies. Best case targets from geophysical surveys for porphyry copper
mineralization will be close spatial relationships between magnetic and
conductive anomalies.

As previously reported, the 2017 deep diamond drilling has already confirmed
that high grade Cu-Au-Zn mineralization can be found at depths in excess of
600-700m under the Svartliden-Eva target area. In addition, the deep drilling
has also located phyllic-style alteration to similar depths. High grade
near-vertical vein systems are also found throughout the project area, and in
particular in the copper-rich veins in the Granliden area. Combined with the
presence of mineralized hydrothermal breccia, finely porphyritic
diorite-andesite intrusive bodies, the geotectonic setting of the project and
the general proximity to other known large scale porphyry copper deposits
located just 65km due north east, the Granliden and the Svartliden-Eva areas
are seen by the Company to be highly favourable settings for further
exploration and potential discovery of large scale porphyry style copper
mineralization systems.

The final products of the modelled NSAMT and Ground Magnetic surveys are
expected to be completed by the end of November 2017. In conjunction with the
current geological interpretation, anomalies will then be modelled in 3D in
order to generate drill-ready targets.
