(August 23, 2017, Vancouver, B.C., Canada) - Rokmaster Resources Corp. ("Rokmaster" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received an amended Mines Act Permit (the "Permit") from the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines. The new Permit is an area based permit authorizing exploration activities including surface diamond drilling on a multi-year and multi-drill hole basis, for the Company's 100% owned Duncan Lake Zinc-Lead Property (the "Property"). The Permit expires October 31, 2022.
The Company commenced a preliminary program consisting of further data collection and compilation. This work includes recovery, re-organization and re-logging of selected historical drill core, analysis of selected core intervals for silver and gold and structural study to target initial drill holes. Initial assay results have been received and will be released when compiled.
The initial start date planned for drilling to commence has been pushed to early fall to provide for the lifting of forest fire closures, drill crew availability and completion of the equity financing.
- The Company announces that in conjunction with and to accommodate the appointment of Mr. David Moore to the Company's Board of Directors, Mr. Antonio de Quadros has agreed to step down from the Board of Directors effective immediately and will remain as an Advisor to the Board.
- The Company further announces that it is extending its plans to proceed with the non-brokered private placement of up to 20,000,000 units in its news release dated July 14, 2017.
