Trailbreaker Resources Ltd. (TBK.V), known as "Trailbreaker" or "the Company," is delighted to declare the initiation of its 2024 drill initiative, targeting the copper-molybdenum (Cu-Mo) porphyry prospect at its Liberty property in central British Columbia (BC). The program entails up to 2,000 meters of diamond drilling, aimed at investigating a Cu-Mo ± gold (Au) ± silver (Ag) geochemical soil anomaly in conjunction with an induced polarization (IP) chargeability and resistivity anomaly.

A drillhole previously conducted by Rio Tinto yielded a 123.1-meter interval grading 0.11% Cu and 0.04% MoS21 from surface to the end of the hole. Positioned 300 meters directly south of the current geophysical and geochemical targets under examination, this historic drillhole is interpreted by the company as being situated at the edge of a mineralized porphyry body. Earlier this year, the historic IP data underwent reprocessing and 3D inversion imaging, which are currently being employed in the drill targeting process.

"We are enthusiastic about commencing the season with Liberty's first drill program since the 1960s. The historical drill findings from the sole drillhole to explore the porphyry target serve as a solid foundation for our exploration hypothesis and confirm the presence of a mineralized system. The recent geophysical and geochemical analyses of the Cu-Mo system have generated robust drill targets, and we eagerly anticipate updating our shareholders once we interpret the results." - Daithi Mac Gearailt, President, CEO, and Director of Trailbreaker Resources Ltd.

The Liberty Property spans 5,054 hectares and is situated roughly 60 km northwest of Quesnel, BC. The property boasts full accessibility via resource roads. The focal point of the Liberty project is a northwest-trending Cu-Mo ± Au ± Ag Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) soil anomaly, which coincides with an IP chargeability feature on the edge of the granitic intrusion. A historical drill hole located south of this concurrent anomaly yielded a 123.1-meter interval containing 0.11% Cu and 0.04% MoS2.

Alongside the Cu-Mo porphyry target and the Cu-skarn target, which demonstrated assay values exceeding 8.0% Cu from historical trenching, the extended property encompasses an epithermal gold target. Epithermal vein textures have been identified in a road cut within this area. Nearby soil and test pit samples have shown anomalous grades of gold (Au) and arsenic (As), potentially indicating a lower-temperature epithermal segment of the hydrothermal system.

Trailbreaker Resources is an exploration company concentrated on the resource-rich regions of British Columbia and Yukon Territory in Canada. Dedicated to ongoing exploration and investigation, Trailbreaker diligently maintains a portfolio of high-quality mineral properties, delivering value to its shareholders. The company boasts a seasoned management team with a successful history of exploration and development across Yukon Territory, British Columbia, Alaska, and Nevada.
