Tarku successfully completes drilling on its 100% owned Admiral Gold Project

MONTREAL, March 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tarku Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: TKU) (the "Company" or "Tarku") is pleased to announce the completion of a drill program on its wholly owned Admiral Project, in the Matagami area, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec (see press release dated February 22, 2019). The objective of the drilling program was to evaluate select targets along a 1 to 1.5 km wide corridor identified by Tarku’s previous high-resolution geophysical survey and data compilations and that contains the Lac Olga Ouest gold showing (5.9 g/t Au, grab sample, GM 49140). The structural corridor is a favourable setting for orogenic gold mineralization associated with alkaline rocks and porphyry intrusions (Figure 1).

A total of 796 meters was completed in 5 drill holes. Most of the holes intersected brittle-ductile faults zones with injections of "syenitic and monzonitic" dykes. Albite-hematite alterations with tourmaline-quartz-pyrite veinlets were observed in drill hole AD-19-03. The presence of dykes in fault zones (Table 1) is consistent with Tarku’s exploration model.

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku, stated: "The success of this drill program, which has intersected altered and dyke-injected fault zones along what we believe to be an extension of the Sunday Lake regional structure, is very significant. We are really encouraged by the gold potential of both the Admiral and Apollo projects”.

About the Admiral project

The Admiral project is located west of Lake Olga and consists of 30 claims (1,667 ha) overlying the convergence of the Rivière Waswanipi (RWSZ) and Lac Olga (LOSZ) shear zones. The LOSZ contains the Lac Olga Ouest gold showing as previously mentioned and Goldcorp’s high-grade deposit Indice Principal zone Olga located 10 km southeast of Admiral (14.75 g/t Au, 1.14% Cu and 10.3 g/t Ag over 1.50 m, GM 50632) (see
