Mithril Resources Ltd (ASX:MTH) is pleased to advise that a 900-metre Reverse Circulation drilling program is underway at 100%-owned Kurnalpi Nickel-Cobalt Prospect (located on EL28/2567 approximately 70 kms north east of Kalgoorlie, WA - see Figure 1 in link below).

- RC drill program testing new bedrock EM conductors and historic nickel-cobalt drill intercepts

- Historic intercepts include;

o 42m @ 1.25% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 24 metres including 6m @ 1.78% nickel, 0.20% cobalt from 28 metres, and

o 19m @ 1.08% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 33 metres including 6m @ 1.17% nickel, 0.11% cobalt from 35 metres

- Results expected mid-March 2017

Drilling will test both new bedrock EM conductors and a zone of high-grade nickel-cobalt intercepts identified from historic drilling (See ASX Announcement dated 7 February 2018 and Figure 2 in link below). The historic intercepts include;

o 42m @ 1.25% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 24 metres in KURC22 including 6m @ 1.78% nickel, 0.20% cobalt from 28 metres, and

o 19m @ 1.08% nickel, 0.07% cobalt from 33 metres in KURA42 including 6m @ 1.17% nickel, 0.11% cobalt from 35 metres.

The new drill holes will also be cased for future downhole EM geophysical surveying.

Assay results are expected mid-March 2018 and Mithril will inform the market when they come to hand.
