FG 2017 Exploration Announced

FG 2017 EXPLORATION ANNOUNCED

Vancouver, British Columbia January 31 2017 Eureka Resources Inc. (“Eureka” or the “Company”) has been informed by Canarc of their exploration plans for the FG Project for 2017. “We are excited about their plans to advance the project” stated Michael Sweatman Eureka‘s CEO

The FG Gold Project is located in the Cariboo Gold Camp, situated in the historic Quesnel Trough area of central British Columbia and has a long history of continued exploration since the 1970s. A combination of quartz veins and knotted phyllites host gold mineralization containing coarse free gold and finer grained sulphide bearing gold.

The property consists of 33 mineral contiguous mineral claims totalling 10,401 hectares.

Historical exploration has established a Measured and Indicated (376,000 ounces) gold resource at an average grade of 0.776 g/t gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t, and an Inferred gold resource (634,900 ounces) at an average grade of 0.718 g/t gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t. [1]

Through drilling, soil sampling, induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical surveys and surface exploration mineralization has been defined over a strike length of 3 kilometres, and has indicated potential for additional mineralization that could extend along an interpreted strike length of over 10 kilometers.

The 2017 exploration program will consist of diamond drilling on the most advanced prospective targets along the northwest extension of the Main Zone that have been identified and conducting soil sampling, prospecting and mapping to follow up on other highly prospective areas of the property that have been identified by geophysics work done on the property.

The 2017 program will focus on the following target areas as shown on Map #1.

Target #1: Diamond drilling on the projected northwest extension of the Main Zone.

Six to eight diamond drill holes measuring 200 to 300 meters each, totalling approximately 2000 meters, will be drilled into the northwest extension zone and the northwest offset zone.

The drill targets along this northwest projection of the Main Zone have been delineated by coincidental soil and electromagnetic anomalies completed in prior exploration programs. Mapping in this area has also identified lithologies that are similar to the main zone which contains the current historic resources.

Exploration success in this area offers the potential to significantly increase gold resource ounces on the property.

Target #2: Soil sampling in the vicinity of the northwest extension zone

Soil sampling will be completed to fill in areas in the vicinity of the northwest extension to cover a data gap in this area. An area measuring approximately 1500 by 1000 meters will be sampled on a 50m X 100 m grid generating approximately 250 to 300 soil samples.

The purpose of this sampling program is to check for mineralization in the soils to identify the presence of other mineralized structures in this area.

Positive results would identify targets for follow up drilling in future exploration programs.

Target #3: Stream sediment, soil sampling, prospecting and mapping along the southern limb of the Eureka syncline.

A 2016 interpretation study of a 2007 geophysical survey interpreted the presence of conductive EM responses to be that of a sedimentary rock package on the south east limb of the Eureka syncline similar to that which hosts gold mineralization within the main zone.

The intent of this program would be to identify and develop targets for future follow up drilling in this new area of the property that offers the potential to significantly increase gold resource ounces on the property.

Prospecting and mapping will also be conducted in the area of the southeast projection of the Main Zone and in the Eureka bowl area.

The exploration program will be conducted during the summer of 2017 with a budget of $500,000.
