Quarterly Activities Report
HIGHLIGHTS: Evaluating Paris silver project & seeking resource expansions
Paris Pre-Feasibility Study ('PFS'):
PFS studies continue on the Paris Silver Project, as follows:
- Metallurgical testwork on large samples which aims to improve the 2013 silver recoveries of 65-75%.
- Geotechnical drilling has been completed with tests proceeding on drill samples towards an indicative pit design.
- Waste rock characterisation and desktop infrastructure studies are underway.
Paris extensions exploration:
- One metre re-assaying of December 2017 drilling showed potential for zones of high grade silver at the less-drilled northern and southern ends of the Paris deposit.
- New drilling indicated modest additional silver resource potential in the South East Extension associated with zones of anomalous lead, gold, copper, cobalt and molybdenum.
- Scout Induced Polarisation ('IP') survey completed with assessment for satellite silver targets awaited.
Trojan copper-gold target:
- Drilling of large shallow IP target near Paris intersected no significant copper in the interpreted pyritic margin to the Nankivel porphyry system. A partner would be sought to test the potential for a deeper copper core.
Regional target concepts:
- Targets were advanced at Maslins IOCG copper gold, Cartarpo cobalt copper REE and Wiawera copper gold prospects.

About Investigator Resources Ltd
The Company's priority is progressing the development pathway for the Paris silver project with the preparation of a pre-feasibility study. The Paris Mineral Resource Estimate is 9.3Mt @ 139g/t silver and 0.6% lead, comprising 42Moz of contained silver and 55kt of contained lead, at a 50g/t silver cut-off. The resource has been categorised with an Indicated Resource estimate of 4.3Mt @ 163g/t silver and 0.6% lead for 23Moz contained silver and 26kt contained lead, and an Inferred Resource: 5.0Mt @ 119g/t silver and 0.6% lead for 19Moz contained silver and 29kt contained lead.
The Company has applied an innovative strategy that has developed multiple ideas and targets giving Investigator first-mover status. These include: the Paris silver discovery; recognition of other epithermal fields and the associated potential for porphyry copper-gold of Olympic Dam age; extending the ideas developed at Paris-Nankivel and using breakthrough government Magneto-Telluric surveying to rejuvenate targeting with the Maslins IOCG target as the next priority drill target.
