Rimouski, February 23, 2023 – Puma Exploration Inc. (TSXV: PUMA, OTCQB: PUMXF) (the “Company” or “Puma”) is pleased to report that it has staked another 105 claims (2,300 ha) contiguous to its Williams Brook South property that now totals 8,290 ha (see Figure 1). The newly staked claims have seen very little exploration in the past. Still, they are highly prospective for gold mineralization as they exhibit the same geology as the Lynx Gold Zone.

Puma continues to secure land to increase the size of its Williams Brook Gold Project, which includes the flagship Williams Brook property, as well as the Williams Brook South, Jonpol, Portage, and Jacquet River properties. “These new land additions further consolidate our extensive ground position and increase our overall footprint in Northern New Brunswick. Puma now controls 100% of 50,000 ha of highly prospective and underexplored assets in what is now recognized as an emerging Gold District. We are committed to building a gold camp at Williams Brook project, and we’ll continue to seize every opportunity to acquire ground that could increase our gold inventory,” stated Marcel Robillard, President and CEO of Puma Exploration.

The new claims host felsic volcanic units in contact with sediments similar to the rocks that host the Lynx Gold Zone (see Figure 2). Very little fieldwork has ever been conducted on the new claims. Puma will proceed with detailed data compilation before applying its successful exploration method to the area.

Since 2021, Puma has made four (4) significant gold discoveries at Williams Brook, with high-grade gold mineralization hosted in quartz veins at surface. An aggressive exploration program is planned for 2023, including a minimum of 6,000 m of drilling and a 4,000 T bulk sample.
