Toronto, Ontario, December 16, 2021 – Ubique Minerals Limited (“Ubique”)(CSE:UBQ) announces that diamond drilling at the Daniel’s Harbour Zinc Project commenced in mid November and nine holes have been completed. The contractor has demobilised for the Christmas – New Year period and drilling will resume in January 2022. Core sampling of the nine holes will be completed and samples sent for analysis.
Ubique’s Daniels Harbour Zinc Project – Progress of 2021 Diamond Drilling Program.
Ubique owns three mineral licenses located in the Daniel’s Harbour area in Newfoundland, Canada, covering more than 6 sq. kms, in two blocks and has another four mineral licenses covering more than 10 sq. kms. under option from MinKap Resources Inc. (“KAP”) (now Ophir Gold Corp.). The Ubique licenses cover at least three zones of zinc mineralization, one of which is the P Zone where Ubique completed most of its 2017 and 2018 drilling programs, the highlight of which was a true width intersection of 13.6% Zinc over 12.2 metres including 17.43% Zinc over 8.6m. There are now 28 drill holes in this target area with zinc intersections with greater than 4% zinc over at least 2 metres true widths. The KAP Option licenses cover many areas of the historic mining activity and research has already identified five high priority drill target areas where historic drilling intersected zinc mineralization, including a true width interval of 5.73m of 8.96% zinc in the 1386 zone target. Two of these drill target areas have been relocated (the 1386 and Nose Zones), the historic drill holes identified and new holes drilled confirming the location and grade of mineralization in 2019. The 2021 drilling program has targeted these two zones with the first three holes drilled in the 1386 Zone. The third hole had to be abandoned short of its target due to equipment malfunction. The drill was then moved to the Nose Zone and set up at the east end of the previously defined zone. Six holes have now been drilled to extend the zone further to the northeast. With the exception of the drill hole which had to be stopped short, samples have or will be cut from every hole completed and will be shipped for laboratory analysis. Sampling is determined by the presence of visible sphalerite (a zinc sulphide) mineralization.
The zinc mineralization intersected is a very pale coloured sphalerite, characteristic of a low-iron Mississippi-Valley-Type carbonate rock geological environment analogous to many large deposits in north America. Approximately 7,000,000 tonnes averaging 7.8% zinc have been mined from the Daniel’s Harbour mine and after concentrating on site was shipped as a very high-grade concentrate from nearby deep-water port facilities to a custom zinc smelter.

Funding for the 2017, 2018 and 2020 diamond drilling programs was financially supported, in part, by grants from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador under their Junior Exploration Assistance Program. Application has been made for a similar grant to support the 2021 diamond drilling program.
