During the Quarter White Rock (ASX:WRM) (OTCMKTS:WRMCF) focused on completing advanced works in preparation for an aggressive 2021 field season with an exploration drill campaign in Alaska. Three drill rigs have been secured, as has supporting helicopter services, two remote accommodation camps and geophysical contractors.


Six new, potentially significant, mineralised massive sulphide targets have been identified in the emerging Last Chance "VMS" camp from the follow-up of stream sediment anomalism during the 2020 field season, and returned promising assays results including:

- Horseshoe (up to 8.3% Zn, 0.3% Pb, 1.1% Cu, 12g/t Ag & 3.6g/t Au).

- Bib (up to 7.3% Zn, 5.1% Pb, 0.3% Cu, 40g/t Ag & 0.3g/t Au).

- Bib West (up to 5.7% Zn, 1.4% Pb & 0.2% Cu)

- Grapple (up to 3.6% Zn, 1.9% Pb, 0.7% Cu & 40g/t Ag).

- Peaches (up to 2.9% Zn, 2.8% Pb, 0.2% Cu, 46g/t Ag & 1.5g/t Au).

- Ringer (up to 1.0% Cu, 26g/t Ag & 0.4g/t Au).

Drilling during the 2021 field season will focus on:

- The potential of the high-grade silver-zinc Dry Creek VMS deposit to grow to a size that could support a standalone development opportunity;

- Drill testing of conductivity targets proximal to the Dry Creek and WTF deposits within the Red Mountain VMS "camp";

- New VMS prospects with outcropping mineralisation not yet drill tested in the emerging Last Chance VMS "camp", and

- Follow-up drill testing at the large Last Chance IRGS/orogenic gold target, with a combination of shallow drilling of surface geochemical anomalies and multi-disciplinary targeting of deeper structural positions likely to offer
