Drilling Program Underway at the Woodjam Project, South-Central BC



Vancouver, B.C. - TheNewswire - August 27, 2020 - Consolidated Woodjam Copper Corp. ("Woodjam" or the "Company") (TSXV:WCC) is pleased to announce that the drilling program is underway on the Deerhorn Zone at its 100% owned 64,000 hectare Woodjam project located 50 kilometers east of the community of Williams Lake, BC. This drill program is designed to focus on the gold content in the Deerhorn resource and to test grade continuity between widely spaced holes along what is interpreted to be the main controlling structure and also to determine if the zone continues to depth below previous drilling and might represent a "feeder" zone that potentially could carry higher grades. This concept has never been tested and could determine if other zones should be re-evaluated.

The Deerhorn Zone is one of four zones of gold-enriched mineralization occurring in structural zones above and related to the larger Southeast Zone copper-gold-molybdenum deposit. Former option partner, Gold Fields Limited, published NI 43-101 resources in 2013 for the Southeast Zone and two of the gold enriched "satellite" zones, Deerhorn and Takom. The resources are summarized at the end of this news release. The Deerhorn Zone, with an inferred resource of 32.8 million tonnes grading 0.49 grams per tonne gold and 0.22% copper contains 516,200 ounces of gold.

Glen Garratt, P. Geo., is the qualified person who takes responsibility for this news release.

Note: (Southeast Zone Resource notes from Sherlock and Trueman, May 15, 2013)
1. The Au grade is 0.05 gpt for 391.1 koz, a portion of which may be recovered as a by-product,
2. These Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability,
3. NSR calculation uses USD 1,650/oz Au, USD 3.90/lb Cu and recoveries of 69% Au and 85% Cu,
4. The Resource is reported at a USD 8.60/t NSR cut-off constrained within an optimized pit Shell,
5. The pit shell is based on a price assumption of USD 1,650/oz Au & USD 3.90/lb Cu,
6. On May 30, 2013, a topography correction was made to the geologic model, and as a result the Inferred Mineral Resource figures changed to 221.7 Mt at 0.31% Cu for 1507.1 Mlb Cu and 383.7 koz Au.The April 14th news release reported the Southeast mineral resource as 227.5 MT at 0.31% Cu containing 1,541.9 Mlb Cu. This mineral resource has been subsequently revised to 221.7 Mt at 0.31% Cu containing 1,507.1 Mlb Cu. The Company does not consider this to be a material revision.
