Magna Mining Corp. Announces Promising Gold And

MAGNA MINING CORP. ANNOUNCES PROMISING GOLD AND COPPER ASSAY RESULTS FOR SURFACE SAMPLES FROM THE MILTON PROSPECT

Sudbury, Ontario, June 22, 2018, Magna Mining Corporation (“Magna Mining” or the “Company”), is pleased to release the following summary of assay results from a surface sampling program completed in May 2018 on the company’s newly acquired Milton prospect, located within Baldwin Township, 70km west of Sudbury, Ontario. This prospect is situated ~3km south of the Company’s 100% owned Shakespeare property, which covers the historic Shakespeare Ni-Cu-Co-PGE mine (see www.magnamining.com for details).

Elevated Cu-Au-Ag mineralization reported from the Milton Prospect

• Eight samples from the Milton prospect returned copper vales exceeding 1.5% Cu, with associated anomalous gold and silver values of up to 1.06 g/t Au and 27 g/t Ag and cobalt values up to 0.14% Co (table 1).

Samples from the North and South Milton mineral zones were collected along a vein system that has been partially evaluated with historic trenching and near-surface geophysical methods. Two samples from the Milton North prospect were collected from quartz vein material within the waste pile of an historic pit. Six samples collected from the Milton South prospect were collected from trench exposures of sheared quartzite hosting disseminated and poddy sulphide mineralization (chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite and possible chalcocite) (Table 1)

The Milton Property is covered by a historic VTEM survey which has been re-interpreted. A number of conductive plates have been identified, and initial follow-up has focussed on known near-surface mineral zones on the Milton North and Milton South prospects. At Milton North, the near-surface manifestation hosted in a sheared mafic volcanic rock that has been trenched and drilled with shallow holes. Historic drill results from the Milton North structure returned assays up to 7.3% Cu and 0.48 g/t Au, in addition to anomalous PGM values over a 0.63m interval, hosted in quartz veins within a brecciated, chloritized mafic volcanic unit (Romios Gold Resources Inc. Assessment File 20000001125: available on www.geologyontario.mndm.gov.on.ca). Surface sampling in the vicinity of Milton North also returned up to 0.07% Co from a mineralized contact between metavolcanics and a gabbro intrusion (Assessment report File 2.27026 available on www.geologyontario.mndm.gov.on.ca).

An untested strongly conductive plate modelled from the historic VTEM survey has been identified to the east of the historic trenching and shallow drilling, and a second plate is located to the west along strike at a historic mineral occurrence that has not yet been evaluated. The mineralization on the Milton South Prospect is hosted in sheared

quartzite. Trenching and shallow drilling is indicative of a laterally extensive zone of mineralization which does not have a strong EM response in the VTEM survey.

Both mineral zones follow the same general WSW-ENE trend as the magmatic sulfide mineralization associated with an inclusion-bearing gabbro to the north, within the footprint of the Shakespeare Ni-Cu-Co-PGE Deposit. Additional field sampling is planned for the summer, and this will provide a basis for optimization of a surface EM survey over the prospects.
