A.I.S. Resources Ultratrace Soil Program Results at Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project Substantially Increases Confidence on Next Phase of Drilling
December 21, 2021
Vancouver, British Columbia – A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSX-V: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF) (the “Company” or “AIS”) announces its ULTRATRACE soils analysis program results at the Fosterville-Toolleen project have reconfirmed the prospectivity of the drill targets.
Phil Thomas, CEO commented, “Analysis was conducted for gold, arsenic, copper, lead and eight other elements and they were all present along the litho-boundaries and target zones to be drilled. This means our drill program to commence in early 2022 will aim to define the presence of gold in the Ordovician rocks. These spatially associated multielement results suggest that the source is potentially related to primary gold occurrence in the oldest Ordovician rocks where the minerals form rather than the younger secondary deposits. The presence of paleochannel gold deposits is also a real possibility, which will be incorporated into the exploration program.”

Martyn Element, Chairman of AIS stated, “We are pleased that evidence is continuing to accumulate that we are getting even closer to our intended target especially with the presence of gold in the latest analysis.”
