BASS RIVER, NS / TheNewswire / November 16, 2017 - Chilean Metals Inc. (“Chilean Metals,” “CMX” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: CMX, OTCQB: CMETF, SSE:CMX, MILA:CMX, FRA: IVV1, BER : IVV1).

Chilean Metals Inc & Tejas Gold Co. are pleased to report that they have launched its Exploration program, under the direction of Chilean Metals & its Technical Committee.

Gary Lohman, VP of Exploration stated, “The much-anticipated program is finally underway at Bass River North. Intelligence gathered in field suggested additional staking opportunities and this delayed the product launch. We are waiting on assays in conjunction with this program and this will form part of a broader NS update we expect to publish later this month.  The final pre drilling step is the completion of the geophysical survey, the data will be modelled by Minotaur Exploration Limited (Australia) who will provide parameters and recommendations including proposed drill collar locations.

The Two defined Grids (above) are presently being cut in preparation  for Abitibi  Geophysics, Val-d’Or, QC , who will conduct a three component fixed loop TDEM (PEM) Survey over the Priority Targets, BRN_VT01and BRN_VT03, as identified by Minotaur Exploration (Australia) and our Technical Committee . Once this data is processed and returned by Minotaur Exploration, Chilean Metals will announce & execute it’s 2000-3000m Drilling Program which is expected to commence in early December and run until the end of January.

“We are very excited to be launching our Drill Program on the largest VTEM anomaly defined in over 2000 line kilometers of airborne surveying.  This is an extension of a previously defined, well mineralized Zn-Pb-Ag system. We also staked additional ground to protect a New Enhanced Geophysical Target on & off our existing Bass River Claims, and now we are going to test this system’s extension trending northeast towards the Pleasant Hills Pluton”, stated Terry Lynch,  Chairman of Chilean Metals Inc.

“I believe many will be surprised at the results the Cobequid-Chedabucto Fault Zone (CCFZ) properties will deliver over the next few years. When the Nova Scotia DNR & Minotaur Australia re-defined the CCFZ as a potential IOCG belt, the entire thinking of the area has changed. The CCFZ comprises of a series of crustal-scale faults along a 250km x up to 25km wide area that divides Nova Scotia into 2 distinct terranes (Avalon & Meguma).  I believe there is the real potential for a discovery  in this system in the near term.“ commented Patrick Cruickshank, President and CEO of Chilean Metals.

Initial targeting and geophysics has been conducted on all properties, At Bass River North, airborne geophysics identified a major VTEM cluster on trend with the Pb/Zn/Ag mineralization exposed at surface and in drill holes to the southwest. Modeling of the airborne data by Minotaur Exploration (Australia) identified 3 priority targets recommended for ground based geophysics prior to drilling.
