Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada, February 28, 2024 –Fokus Mining Corporation (“Fokus” or the “Company”) (TSXV-FKM) (OTCQB: FKMCF) (FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce that it now has begun its 1,250 metres of exploration drilling to further test the Moriss Sector  following up on the 1,500 metre drill campaign from November (see results in the press release dated February 7, 2024) where the Company intersected some high-grade gold mineralization in gold bearing structures that seem to intersect the Moriss Zone perpendicularly .

 “Jean Rainville, CEO and President of Fokus, stated that based on the significant gold values intersected in the five holes drilled in a westerly direction, the Company will conduct further exploration work to confirm the potential presence of a north-south trending mineralized system in the sector. This additional exploration work could greatly improve our understanding of the area and its potential, particularly in light of the previously confirmed existence of the east-west gold mineralized Moriss shear zone.” As shown on Figure 1, the recent results of drilling on Moriss Zone are quite conclusive.

This new drill campaign of a minimum of 1,250 metres will consist of a minimum of six holes all drilled in the east-west direction (holes GA-24-83 to GA-24-88): four holes will have a length of 250 metres, one hole 200 metres and one hole 100 metres.

Also, the Company will soon receive assays on three holes that were drilled last December in the Hurd-Fayolle sector Northeast of Moriss.
