, , ,

Vancouver, BC – June 13, 2023 – Finlay Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: FYL | OTCQB: FYMNF) (“Finlay” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has engaged ALS GoldSpot Discoveries to undertake a machine-learning data review of the Silver Hope Property to delineate and refine future drill targets. The ALS GoldSpot data review will merge all data on the Silver Hope Property to develop a prospectivity report aiming to identify similar signatures to the known mineralized trends and to further enhance other prospective targets for future drilling.

A LiDAR survey is also expected to commence shortly. The survey will consist of 80.3 line kilometres (“km”) which will cover 180 km2 of the property including the Main Trend, Equity East, Allin, and the Sam Zones. The survey will result in the generation of a detailed digital elevation model which will be used to further refine targets. Additional field work is being planned and set to begin in late Spring, 2023.

ALS GoldSpot Discoveries leverages machine-learning to reduce capital risk, and simultaneously increase efficiencies and success rates in resource exploration. The ALS GoldSpot team will merge all available geophysical, surface geology/geochemistry and drilling data on the Silver Hope Property to develop a prospectivity report and targets. ALS GoldSpot will develop signatures that exist at the known mineralized trends: the Main Trend, West Trend, and the past-producing Equity Silver Mine, and outline potentially similar signatures on the property but also outline other targets having different mineralization potential.

Robert Brown, P. Eng., President, and CEO of the Company states:

The data review by ALS GoldSpot, will go a long way towards enhancing the various targets previously generated by drilling, soil geochemistry, ground IP, airborne magnetic and ZTEM geophysical surveys, in addition to developing new targets. The West, Main, and East Trends encompass an area of 2 by 2 km, while the Equity East and Allin Zones encompass an area of 2.5 by 3.0 km – both are large areas with known mineralization and potential for further discoveries.

Only 38 km southeast of Houston, situated in British Columbia’s Nechako Plateau, the strategic location of the Silver Hope Property is in an area with numerous past-producing deposits including: Equity Silver, Silver Queen, Bell-Granisle, Huckleberry, and Endako Mines, and offers significant potential for new discoveries.

Finlay’s drilling has successfully discovered low-sulphidation copper-silver ± gold mineralization along the Main Trend towards the south of the Equity Main Zone. Through this targeted drilling, the Hope, Superstition, and Gaul Zones have been identified with a west-dipping mineralized trend that extends for 2 km along strike.
