Tier-1 scale JORC MRE at NKT ex-operating Ni mine

Eurasia Mining Plc ("Eurasia" or the "Company"), the palladium, platinum, rhodium, iridium and gold producing company, is pleased to announce a tier-1 scale JORC Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") by Wardell Armstrong International ("WAI") at Nittis-Kumuzhya-Travyanaya ("NKT") nickel dominant nickel-copper-PGM mine formerly operated by Norilsk Nickel. NKT is located within the license area held by TGK, Eurasia's 80% owned subsidiary in Kola, immediately to the north of the TGK-owned West Nittis open pit deposit already licenced for mining, where the mining plan has now been developed for the life of mine.

Highlights:

-- Tier-1 scale: 305Kt of Nickel, 143Kt of Copper, 57 tons of PGM and Gold (11.2Moz of Platinum equivalent) have been estimated by WAI as JORC-compliant resources for an underground mining operation.

-- Nickel is the main metal comprising half of the value in the metal basket on a Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR") basis.

-- Although significantly lower metal recoveries have conservatively been assumed for the MRE by WAI, the JORC-compliant Nickel resource has exceeded the Nickel resource registered in the Russian State Cadastre of Mines for NKT (please refer to RNS dated 4 December 2019). Metal recoveries remain a significant upside for the next NKT MRE update.

-- About 2/3 of the resources have been defined as reserves under Russian classification by Norilsk Nickel, however the drill core and the trenches have only been analysed for the base metals (Nickel and Copper) and have not been analysed for platinum group metals ("PGM") thus limiting the classification to inferred under the JORC Code due to the application of regression formulas for PGM. Once all the PGM assays have been completed, this data will be used for re-estimation and re-classification providing additional upside for the next NKT MRE update.

-- In order to further upgrade the resource Eurasia has engaged with SGS and Alex Stewart International for primary and secondary controls of the PGM assays on the historical drill core and the trenches by Severonickel / Norilsk Nickel as well as on the additional confirmatory drilling just done by Eurasia on NKT.

-- The NKT nickel-copper-PGM ore used to be mined and shipped about 1 km distance to Severonickel, the world's largest nickel processing plant. Thus, the NKT area is well served with the infrastructure required for the relaunch of mining and processing and the tailings are planned to be used as backfill to the old NKT mine developed in the past following the best practices in ESG and saving on the tailing storage facility ("TSF") capital expenditure.

-- The Competent Person's Report ("CPR") has been prepared by WAI covering the open pit part of the NKT as well as the underground part of the NKT.

-- Multiple options for the relaunch have been considered and several case studies have been analysed. A brownfield relaunch like NKT and Nyud is generally a faster and simpler process than a greenfield mine launch.

-- The net present value ("NPV") using an 8.33% discount rate for the underground part of the NKT project is $1.2bn under the WAI price forecast and $1.7bn under spot prices. Work on the open pit part is in progress and the NPV of that part will be announced separately.

-- The wireframe and the block modelling of the high-grade Nickel, Copper and PGM vein part of the NKT is in progress and represents another upside to the MRE and the NPV.

-- The MRE under the JORC Code by WAI on other deposits including on Nyud, another Nickel dominant mine, that (like NKT) used to be in production, will be released separately.

The 38-page summary of the CPR by Wardell Armstrong International is available as an embedded link on this RNS and on Eurasia's website at:

Dr Phil Newall, BSc, PhD, CEng, FIMMM, Director at WAI and Che Osmond, BSc (Hons), MSc, CGeol, FGS, EurGeol, Technical Director at WAI have reviewed the update and consent to the inclusion of the exploration information in the form and context in which it appears here. They are Competent Persons for the purposes of the reporting of these results.

Christian Schaffalitzky, Executive Chairman of Eurasia commented: " The Directors are jubilant to complete an important milestone of our first of a series of JORC mineral resource estimates, that the WAI team has been working on since April this year. We are delighted that a relaunch of the NKT nickel-dominant mine generates a significant NPV of $1.2-1.7bn under various price scenarios. Furthermore, the identification of an open pit part as well as near-surface high-grade veins of the NKT area represent further upsides. We continue to observe significant interest in nickel dominant mines, especially in the ones closer to production like the NKT brownfield relaunch ".

James Nieuwenhuys, CEO and Managing Director of Eurasia commented: "The Board members are delighted by the outcome of the hard work done by the Eurasia and Wardell Armstrong International teams. NKT's nickel and copper resource is well drilled, trenched and tested and requires further minor assaying for PGM by-products to upgrade the resources into higher confidence categories. While we continue to advance our projects with excellent existing infrastructure, now with added help of state owned Rosgeo and ERDC, our strategy remains the same: delivering on our promise to maximise the value for Eurasia shareholders ".

GLOSSARY AND DEFINED TERMS

A

Adit A horizontal passage from the surface into the mine providing access to a mineral deposit.

Ag Silver. A metallic chemical element with the chemical symbol Ag (Latin: argentum, from the Indo-European root *arg- for "grey" or "shining") and atomic number 47. A soft, white, lustrous transition metal, it has the highest electrical conductivity of any element and the highest thermal conductivity of any metal. The metal occurs naturally in its pure, free form (native silver), as an alloy with gold and other metals, and in minerals such as argentite and chlorargyrite. Most silver is produced as a by-product of copper, gold, lead, and zinc refining.

   Arsenopyrite           A tin-white or silver-white to steel-gray orthorhombic mineral: FeAsS. 

Assay A chemical test performed on a sample of ores or minerals to determine the amount of valuable metals contained.

Au Gold. A chemical element with the symbol Au (from Latin: aurum "gold") and an atomic number of 79. Gold is a dense, soft, shiny, malleable and ductile metal. Pure gold has a bright yellow colour and luster traditionally considered attractive, which it maintains without oxidizing in air or water. It is one of the least reactive solid chemical elements. The metal therefore occurs often in free elemental (native) form, as nuggets or grains in rocks, in veins and in alluvial deposits.

B

Backfill Waste material together with a binder used to fill the void created by mining a mineral deposit (orebody).

   Back                            A term used to denote the roof or ceiling of a mining drift. 

Ball mill A steel cylinder filled with steel balls into which crushed ore is fed. The ball mill is rotated, causing the balls to cascade and grind the ore.

   Base metal               Any non-precious metal (e.g. copper, lead, zinc, nickel, etc.). 

Blasthole A drill hole in a mine that is filled with explosives in order to blast loose a quantity of rock.

Bulk mining Any large-scale, mechanized method of mining involving many thousands of tonnes of ore being brought to surface per day.

Bulk sample A large sample of mineralized rock, frequently hundreds of tonnes, selected in such a manner as to be representative of the potential mineral deposit (orebody) being sampled and used to determine metallurgical characteristics.

   Bullion                        Metal formed into bars or ingots. 
   By-product               A secondary metal or mineral product recovered in the milling process.

Indicated Mineral Resource

An Indicated Mineral Resource is that part of a Mineral Resource for which quantity, grade or quality, densities, shape and physical characteristics, can be estimated with a level of confidence sufficient to allow the appropriate application of technical and economic parameters, to support mine planning and evaluation of the economic viability of the deposit. The estimate is based on detailed and reliable exploration and testing information gathered through appropriate techniques from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes that are spaced closely enough for geological and grade continuity to be reasonably assumed.

Inferred Mineral Resource

A n Inferred Mineral Resource is that part of a Mineral Resource for which quantity and grade or quality can be estimated on the basis of geological evidence and limited sampling and reasonably assumed, but not verified, geological and grade continuity. The estimate is based on limited information and sampling gathered through appropriate techniques from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes.

Intrusive A body of igneous rock formed by the consolidation of magma intruded into other

J

JORC Code "Joint Ore Reserves Committee". The Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves ('the JORC Code') is a professional code of practice that sets minimum standards for Public Reporting of minerals Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves.

Mineral Resource

A concentration or occurrence of natural, solid, inorganic or fossilized organic material in or on the earth's crust in such form and quantity and of such grade or quality that it has reasonable prospects for economic extraction. The location, quantity, grade, geological characteristics and continuity of a mineral resource are known, estimated or interpreted from specific geological evidence and knowledge. The term mineral resource covers mineralization and natural material of intrinsic economic interest which has been identified and estimated through exploration and sampling and within which mineral reserves may subsequently be defined by the consideration and application of technical, economic, legal, environmental, socio-economic and governmental factors. The phrase reasonable prospects for economic extraction implies a judgment by the Qualified Person in respect of the technical and economic factors likely to influence the prospect of economic extraction. A mineral resource is an inventory of mineralization that under realistically assumed and justifiable technical and economic conditions, might become economically extractable.
