Confirmation of gold potential at Chateau Fort and update on the Apollo and Atlas projects

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN - Dec. 5, 2017 - Tarku Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TKU) (the "Company" or "Tarku") is pleased to announce that the gold and base metal discovery potential of its Château Fort Project has been confirmed through mapping work by geologists with the Quebec Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (MENR). Results demonstrate that the volcanic pile hosting the former Eastmain mine continues eastward onto Tarku's wholly-owned Château Fort Project.

Tarku also announces that a till, humus and rock sampling work on its Apollo and Atlas projects in the Matagami area is now complete and the samples are being analyzed. As previously announced, the aim of this survey was to identify priority areas along the Rivière Waswanipi Shear Zone, which is associated with alkaline rocks, polygenic conglomerates and gold-bearing porphyry intrusions (see the press release of November 2, 2017). The Apollo and Atlas projects are also wholly owned by Tarku.

Potential of the Château Fort Project

The geological survey completed over the course of the summer by the MENR team (Bulletin Géologique: Géologie de la region de l'île Bohier, Beauchamp and Massei, 2017) led to a re-interpretation of the stratigraphy and structural elements of the Upper Eastmain Greenstone Belt (UEGB). The results outlined a favourable zone for mineralization similar to that of the former Eastmain mine (historical production of 118,356 tonnes @ 10.6 g/t Au; Ressources MSV, GM 56083, 1997). This favourable zone (the "Eastmain Mine Zone") covers an area measuring 5 km by 2 km on the Château Fort Project. The work also defined a favourable zone for gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization (the "Monts Otish Exhalite Zone"), which contains pyritic chert and is located 2.7 km east of the Colline du Château Fort showing (3.3 g/t Au; grab sample, MENR, MB 88-16, 1988). Furthermore, a new grab sample collected at the Colline du Château Fort showing by the MENR team yielded a grade of 1.78% Zn, thereby highlighting the polymetallic nature of the area. Tarku cautions that the mineralization at the former Eastmain mine may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Château Fort Project.

Exploration work on the Apollo and Atlas projects

Till, humus and rock sampling on the Apollo (Au) and Atlas (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn) projects in the Matagami area was completed in early November. A total of 80 till and humus samples were collected across the project to identify priority areas along the Rivière Waswanipi Shear Zone as well as the most promising structures and contacts over a distance of more than 19 kilometres in a geological setting interpreted by Tarku as similar to the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone, host to the Detour Lake mine. Tarku cautions that the mineralization at the Detour Lake mine may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Company's Matagami properties, and is used a conceptual exploration model only.

Historical exploration yielded till samples with gold grains and several grades above 0.5 g/t Au in heavy mineral concentrates, including a value of 4.94 g/t Au (GM 46892; GM 48222). Tarku's samples are currently being analyzed.

Tarku starts its exploration program on the Apollo and Atlas projects in the Matagami area

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN - Nov. 2, 2017 - Tarku Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TKU) (the "Company" or "Tarku") is pleased to announce the start of exploration work on its wholly owned Apollo and Atlas gold and base metals projects and situated 50 kilometres east of Matagami in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory. The contiguous projects are covering 104 km2 along a regional gold structure named the Rivière Waswanipi Shear Zone (RWSZ), a geological setting which Tarku interprets as similar to the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone hosting the Detour Lake mine. The planned work program includes a till, humus and rock samples program which aims to validate the historical results including a value of 4.94 g/t in the heavy mineral fractions in order to identify priority areas along the RWSZ as well as other promising structures and contacts over a distance of 19 kilometres.

Exploration work

The exploration work on the Apollo (Au) and Atlas projects (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn) includes a ground and helicopter-assisted till, humus and rock sampling program. In 1987, during an exploration work, Finnith Exploration found that more than 60% of their till samples contained gold grains (from 1 to 19 gold grains; GM 46862). In 1988, Inco's till sampling program yielded several gold values exceeding 0.5 g/t Au in the heavy mineral fractions, including a maximum value of 4.94 g/t Au (GM 48222). All these historical results are down-ice from the Rivière Waswanipi shear zone that hosts the Rivière Waswanipi showing (2.36 g/t Au over 1 m; 1991, GM 51193).

Between 2004 and 2006, mapping programs revealed that the RWSZ is associated with alkaline lavas, polygenic conglomerates (Timiskaming type) and porphyry intrusions (Goutier et al., 2004 and 2006), a geological setting that Tarku interprets as similar to that of the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone, host of the Detour Lake mine. Tarku cautions that the mineralization at the Detour Lake mine may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Company's Matagami properties, and is used a conceptual exploration model only.

Tarku's planned work program aims to validate the historical results and cover all 193 claims in order to identify priority areas along the RWSZ as well as other promising structures and contacts over a distance of 19 kilometres on the two Tarku projects.

Apollo and Atlas Projects

Using an innovative approach based on exploration models that differ from the traditional approach for this area, Tarku has gained a large land position for gold potential in the Matagami base metal camp, along the northern margin of the geological Abitibi Subprovince.

The Apollo Project, 100% owned by Tarku, lies north of the Atlas Project. It consists of 104 claims (5,495 ha) centred on the Rivière Waswanipi ductile shear zone. This regional structure is characterized by the presence of alkaline rocks, polygenic conglomerates (Timiskaming type) and porphyry intrusions bearing anomalous gold values on the order of hundreds of parts per billion (GM 52712). This corridor, altered to carbonate-hematite-magnetite, contains the Rivière Waswanipi gold showing (2.36 g/t Au over 1 m; 1991; GM 51193) hosted in a porphyritic dyke and tuffs altered to pyrite-fuchsite. Collectively, these metallotects present a favourable setting for orogenic gold mineralization associated with alkaline rocks and porphyry intrusions.

The Atlas Project, 100% owned by Tarku, lies south of the Apollo Project. It consists of 89 claims (4,870 ha) characterized by the presence of a volcanic sequence with facies and geochemical affinities similar to those of the Bousquet Formation in the southern Abitibi (host to the Au-Zn-Cu-Ag LaRonde mine). This volcanic sequence that is in contact with sedimentary rocks is affected by aluminous sericite-chloritoid alteration. These observations are favourable indicators for the presence of gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn). Tarku cautions that the mineralization at the LaRonde Mine mine may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Company's Matagami properties, and is used a conceptual exploration model only.

Exploration update in the Chibougamau area

Exploration work was completed in September 2017 on the Richardson and Bullion projects in the Chibougamau area. Two stripping programs were carried out to follow up on prospecting work and PhySpy ground geophysical surveys conducted in 2016 and summer 2017. The aim of the stripping work on the Richardson Project was to sample the pyritic contact between a gabbro and the felsic volcano sedimentary units hosting the gold showing discovered by Eureka Exploration in 2017 (1.7 g/t Au in a grab sample). The aim of the stripping work on the Bullion Project was to expose the gold mineralization encountered in a historical drill hole (2 g/t Au over 2 m; drill hole T-1, 1984; MB87-10). Although this work generated significant geological information that will be useful in upcoming work on the Richardson and Bullion projects, the analytical results did not return any economic values.

Tarku Resources closes a private placement and starts its exploration program

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN- Sept. 11, 2017 - Tarku Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TKU) (the "Company" or "Tarku") announces that it closed on September 11, 2017 the second tranche of a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") for gross proceeds of $138,040, comprised of 2,084,000 non-flow through units of the Company at a price of $0.06 per unit ($125,040) and 162,500 Flow-Through Shares of the Company at a price of $0.08 per share ($13,000). Each non-flow through unit (a "Unit") consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share at a price of $0.10 per common share for a period of thirty-six (36) months ending September 11, 2020. In aggregate of both tranches of the financing the raised gross proceeds of $625,034.94. The second tranche of the Private Placement aggregates. In the second tranche, insiders subscribed for 200,000 non-flow through units. The securities issued under this Private Placement are subject to a statutory four (4) month hold period ending January 12, 2017.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the Company's precious metals exploration projects (Chateau Fort, Richardson, Bullion, Atlas Apollo, Berthiaume and Admiral) and for general working capital purposes. The Private Placement has been conditionally accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange. No finder's fee has been paid for this tranche of the Private Placement.

Exploration work

Following the closing of the first tranche of the released July 26 Private Placement, Tarku has started exploration work on his 100% owned Richardson and Bullion projects in Chibougamau area. Completed works included geological survey and prospecting with a Beep Mat device as well as a ground geophysical survey.

The prospection work and geological survey on the Richardson project outline the extension of the felsic tuff horizon which host the gold showing discovered by Eureka in 2016 (1.7 g/t Au; grab sample) over 1.4 km.

Magnetic and electromagnetic surveys were also completed at the end of August and covered 8.4 km on the Richardson project and 9.1 km on the Bullion project. The electromagnetic survey enables the identification of strong conductors on the Bullion project over a distance of 1 kilometer along the horizon that contains the historic gold value intercepted by drilling in 1984 (2 g/t Au over 2 m; drill hole T-1). A second area with strong conductors has also been identified 1.2 km east of the gold intercept. Isolated anomalies are also present on the Richardson project.

Ground follow-up of these geophysical conductors are planned over the next weeks by conducting prospection and stripping works. A first stripping zone will be centered on the Eureka gold showing on the Richardson project. A second stripping will target the surface expression of the drilled intersected gold value along the identified strong geophysical conductor of the Bullion project. Both projects show a potential to contain Au-Ag-Cu-Zn mineralization associated with disseminated or massive sulphides.

Tarku also planned to complete a till survey and prospection work on their Apollo (Au) and Atlas (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn) projects located in Matagami area.

Finally, concerning the private placement of $193,500 announced on April 20, 2017, Tarku confirms that Tim Termuende, a director, participated in the placement for an amount of $3,250.

Summary of the transaction:

Tarku acquired all of the common shares and common share purchase warrants of Eureka issued and outstanding in consideration for the issuance of 10,000,000 common shares of Tarku (the "Tarku Shares") and 900,000 common share purchase warrants of Tarku (the "Tarku Warrants"), each Tarku Warrant entitling the holder to subscribe for one (1) Tarku Share at a price of $0.10 until June 29, 2018.

Eureka owns a 100% interest in the following properties:

Chibougamau district

Based on the innovative approach of using a different geological model than the typical "Chibougamau Cu-Au mineralization type", Eureka took a wide land position for orogenic gold potential along a regional fault in the northern part of the Chibougamau district.

  • Richardson - 42 mining claims covering 2,319 ha, located 20 km NNE of Chibougamau:
    The Richardson property is located along the regional Barlow fault. Despite the absence of documented gold occurrences at the time of staking in early 2016, the exploration model used by Eureka for targeting orogenic gold has been proven successful with the discovery of a mineralized felsic volcaniclastic rock containing 1.7 g/t Au (associated with disseminated sulphides) during preliminary fieldwork conducted in 2016. In addition to its gold potential, the Richardson project also includes a mafic-ultramafic intrusive complex representing a favourable setting for Ni-Cu-PGE (platinum group elements) mineralization as well as a historical intercept of 2.75% Zn over 0.6m (historical drill hole), highlighting the potential for Zn-Cu-Ag-Au volcanogenic massive sulphides (VMS) mineralization.
  • Bullion - 26 mining claims covering 1,435 ha located 25 km NNE of Chibougamau:
    The Bullion property is located along the regional Barlow fault. Historical data on the Bullion project reveals gold results ranging from trace quantities up to 2 g/t Au over 2 meters (associated with disseminated sulphides) in 1984 drilling . This mineralization, along with the new Eureka gold showing on the Richardson project, enhances the gold potential along the new regional trend.

With the adjoining Bullion and Richardson projects, Eureka Exploration holds 16km of 100%-owned land position on an underexplored, prospective gold-bearing regional structure that has seen only 8 drill holes completed in the 1980's. This faulted contact on the northern edge of the most northerly sedimentary basin of the Abitibi shows similarities to the Detour Lake Mine geological context. Tarku/Eureka caution that mineralization within the Detour Lake mine may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on its Chibougamau properties, which remain a conceptual exploration targeting model.

Matagami district

Eureka also used a different geological model than the typically applied VMS-type model used by the other companies to identify base metals in the Matagami district. Following this approach, Eureka took a significant land position which targets gold mineralization along regional fault zones east of Matagami district.

  • Apollo - 104 mining claims covering 5495 ha located 50 km east from Matagami:
    The Apollo project is located along the regional Rivière Waswanipi ductile shear zone that affects alkaline lavas, polygenic conglomerates (Timiskaming-type) and porphyritic intrusions anomalous in gold. This geological context shows potential for "Orogenic Gold associated with Alkaline Rocks and Porphyritic Intrusions" mineralization type. This faulted contact on the northern edge of the Abitibi is interpreted as being similar to the Detour Lake Mine geological context. Tarku/Eureka caution that mineralization within the Detour Lake mine may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on its Chibougamau properties, which remain a conceptual exploration targeting model. 
  • Admiral - 24 mining claims covering 1,334 ha, located 25 km east from Matagami
    The Admiral projects include two regional shear zones and shows potential for mesothermal orogenic gold as highlighted by the Lac Olga Ouest showing located immediately east of the claims (historical geological sampling recovered samples ranging from trace quantities to 5.9 g/t Au in a quartz-carbonate-pyrite vein; grab sample).
  • Atlas - 89 claims covering 4,870 ha located 50 km east from Matagami
    The Atlas project contains aluminous-type alteration and volcanic sequence with facies and geochemical affinity similar to the Bousquet Formation of the southern Abitibi. This distinctive geological environment highlights the potential for the presence of gold-bearing Volcanogenic Massive Sulphides mineralization (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn VMS). Tarku/Eureka caution that the mineralization within the LaRonde mine may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on its Matagami district properties, which remain a conceptual exploration targeting model.

Each of the Eureka Properties are subject to (1) a 1% NSR royalty in favour of Julien Davy, half of which (0.5% NSR) may be bought back for $500,000 and (2) a 1% NSR royalty in favour of Benoit Lafrance, half of which (0.5% NSR) may be bought back for $500,000.
