Jangada Mines plc ('Jangada' or the 'Company')

Initial Drilling Results from 2,500-metre Campaign at Pitombeiras Vanadium Project

Jangada Mines plc, a natural resources company, is pleased to announce the initial results of the 2020 drilling programme on the Pitombeiras North target at its 100% owned Pitombeiras Vanadium Project ('Pitombeiras Project' or 'the Project'), located in Ceara State, Brazil. The 2,500-metre diamond drilling ('DD') programme, which commenced in January 2020, is underway to evaluate the structural corridor associated with the known vanadium titanomagnetite ('VTM') mineralisation, which includes the Pitombeiras North and Pitombeiras South anomalies and the newly discovered Goela anomaly.


   --     Three drill holes completed to date to a depth of 120.00 metres each 
   --     All intersected VTM mineralisation 
   --     Results include: 

o 38.00 metres at 0.558% vanadium oxide ('V(2) O(5) '), 11.31% titanium ('Ti') and 38.40% iron ('Fe')

o 32.18 metres at 0.547%, 10.79% Ti and 37.22% Fe, including 13.25 metres at 0.740% V(2) O(5) , 14.63% Ti and 48.9% Fe

-- Programme is testing the three most prospective magnetic anomalies over a 3 km NE-SW structural trend

Brian McMaster, Chairman of Jangada, said: "With VTM mineralisation intersected in all three targets, these initial results continue to underscore the strong prospectivity of our Pitombeiras Project. We are therefore delighted with the results received to-date and look forward to delivering further results in the coming months as the drilling programme continues to progress on schedule. This drilling is targeting high-grade areas similar to those that have already been tested for their suitability to produce concentrate through magnetic separation and it is our goal that results from our 2020 activities will enable us to define a JORC compliant Mineral Resource estimate to build upon the current JORC Exploration Target of 40Mt-60Mt at 0.3% to 0.6% V(2) O(5) , 40%-55% Fe(2) O(3) and 8%-10% TiO(2) . "

Further Information:

At the Pitombeiras North target, three (3) diamond drillholes (Holes ID: DD20PI11, DD20PI12 and DD20PI13) have been drilled by Jangada to a depth of 120.00 metres each, totaling 360.00 metres drilled. Geological logging indicated that all of them intersected the VTM mineralisation (Figure 1).

To date, assay results have been received for 103 core samples collected along drillholes DD20PI11 and DD20PI12. Core samples from drill hole DD20PI13 are currently at the laboratory for analysis.

The actual intersected average grades vary from 0.558% V(2) O(5) over 38.00 metres on drill hole DD20PI12 and 0.547% V(2) O(5) over 32.18 metres on drill hole DD20PI11. A higher-grade interval represented by 13.25 metres grading 0.740% V(2) O(5) was reported within the mineralised zone on drill hole DD20PI11 (Table 1 and Figure 2).

The current drilling campaign is a follow-on from the 4 drill holes campaign executed in 2019, which returned results containing high-grade zones averaging 0.83% V(2) O(5) , 11.6% TiO(2) and 48.4% Fe over a 12.8m downhole width. Initial metallurgical tests presented mass recovery of magnetic fractions from two samples of 59% and 62% with concentrate grades greater than 1.2% V(2) O(5) and 95% Fe(2) O3. High TiO(2) grade concentrate (>30%) was obtained on the non-magnetic fraction.

A preliminary JORC Exploration Target has been estimated from drilling, magnetic survey and rock chip geochemistry to range between 40 Mt to 60 Mt at 0.3% to 0.6% V(2) O(5) , 40% to 55% Fe(2) O(3) and 8% to 10% TiO(2) .

The drilling campaign is expected to provide the necessary technical information to support the potential to define a JORC compliant Mineral Resource estimate and subsequent Preliminary Economic Assessment prepared by an independent engineering company to be selected. Both of these activities are to be funded from existing cash resources.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

All drill samples have been prepared and analysed by SGS-Geosol Laboratórios Ltda ("SGS-Geosol") based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. SGS-Geosol is ISO14001:2004 and ISO 9001:2008 accredited and is independent of Jangada. The samples were analysed by fusion with lithium tetraborate-XRF for Al(2) O(3) , CaO, Co, Fe, K2O, MgO, Mn, Na(2) O, P, SiO(2) , Ti(O) 2, V(2) O(5) and retained moisture (LOI) by multi-temperature.

QA/QC procedures include the submission by Jangada of systematic duplicates, blanks and standard samples within every sample batch submitted to SGS. In addition, SGS-Geosol inserts its own standards, blanks and duplicate samples. The results from these control samples indicate acceptable consistency of analysis.
