Corporate Fact Sheet

Adding Value Through Continued Discovery

Regulus Resources Inc. (TSX V.REG) is a well-funded Canadian exploration company lead by the former management of Antares Minerals Inc.; John E. Black, Kevin B. Heather and Mark Wayne. Regulus was created through the spin-out of the Rio Grande Cu-Au project in Argentina from Antares Minerals during the sale of Antares and the giant Haquira Cu-M-Au deposit in Peru to First Quantum Minerals (TSX.FM, UK FQM) in 2010 for approximately C$650 million. Regulus has recently acquired a new flagship project, the AntaKori Cu-Au-Ag project in northern Peru, by means of a friendly merger with Southern Legacy Minerals and is well positioned to repeat the previous success of Antares Minerals.

REG now has a strong portfolio of projects located in 5 countries. Three of these projects, including the flagship AntaKori Cu-Au-Ag project in Peru, have reportable resources as summarized in the following table.

KEY RESULTS and CATALYSTS FOR 2017

  • AntaKori Project – collaborative exploration agreements in place with neighbors Minera
    Coimolache (Tantahuatay Mine) and Minera Colqurrumi in May 2016 – access to much larger area
  • 15-18,000m drilling program commenced at Antakori – April 2017
  • First Regulus diamond drill hole at AntaKori intersected the following results:
              184 m with 1.54% Cu, 1.05 g/t Au and 11.9 g/t Ag from 250 m depth
              includes 110.7 m with 2.34% Cu, 1.63 g/t Au and 17.9 g/t Ag
    Mineralization is high sulphidation epithermal style – underlying skarn target to be tested next
  • Drilling continues with target for completion of revised resource estimate by March 2018
  • Re-evaluate strategy for Rio Grande and other Argentine projects in improved investment climate
  • Drilling program at Golden Brew JV in Nevada to commence in August 2017
