January 14, 2021 – Vancouver, B.C. – Solaris Resources Inc. (TSXV: SLS) ("Solaris" or the "Company") is pleased to report assay results from two additional holes from the ongoing diamond drill program at its Warintza Project (“Warintza” or “the Project”) in south-eastern Ecuador.

Highlights from recent drilling are listed below and summarized results are shown in Tables 1 and 2.


Two additional holes, as detailed below, have returned long intervals of high-grade mineralization, well beyond the 200m average depth-extent of historical drilling informing the Warintza Central resource, and extended mineralization to the north and northeast (refer to Images 1-2)
SLS-07 was collared from the same platform as SLS-03 (drilled to the west) and SLS-04 (vertical) but drilled to the northeast, returning 1,067m of 0.60% CuEq¹ (0.49% Cu, 0.02% Mo, and 0.04 g/t Au), including 700m of 0.70% CuEq¹ (0.58% Cu, 0.03% Mo, and 0.04 g/t Au) from surface, bottoming in mineralization far beyond the 150m depth of the corresponding historical hole
SLS-08 stepped out approximately 100m further to the northeast of hole SLS-07 and was drilled to the north, returning 454m of 0.62% CuEq¹ (0.51% Cu, 0.03% Mo, and 0.03 g/t Au), including 140m of 1.05% CuEq¹ (0.90% Cu, 0.03% Mo, and 0.05 g/t Au), further extending mineralization in this direction
To date, 14,500 metres have been drilled at Warintza Central in 16 holes, with results reported for the first eight holes. Drilling is ongoing with five rigs at Warintza Central and one rig at Warintza West
Mr. Jorge Fierro, Vice President, Exploration, commented: “Our drilling continues to demonstrate major extensions of mineralization to depth at Warintza Central with these latest results extending our drilling footprint to the north and northeast. The pace of drilling has now ramped up aggressively with six rigs operating, which will lead to a commensurate increase in the pace of results being reported as assays are returned from the lab.”

Warintza Central is presently defined by a pit-optimized Mineral Resource estimate of 124 Million tonnes of Inferred Resources grading 0.70% CuEq² (0.56% Cu, 0.03% Mo and 0.1 g/t Au), based on historic drilling totaling less than 7,000m and averaging less than 200m in depth. The resource is open laterally and at depth and is one of five main targets set within the 5km x 5km cluster of copper porphyries identified on the Warintza property, all of which show a similar surface expression to Warintza Central.

Technical Information and Quality Control & Quality Assurance

Sample assay results have been independently monitored through a quality control/quality assurance (“QA/QC”) program that includes the insertion of blind certified reference materials (standards), blanks and field duplicate samples. Logging and sampling are completed at a secured Company facility located in Quito, Ecuador. Drill core is cut in half on site and samples are securely transported to ALS Labs in Quito. Sample pulps are sent to ALS Labs in Lima, Peru and Vancouver, Canada for analysis. Total copper and molybdenum contents are determined by four-acid digestion with AAS finish. Gold is determined by fire assay of a 30-gram charge. ALS Labs is independent from Solaris. In addition, selected pulp check samples are sent to Bureau Veritas lab in Lima, Peru. Solaris is not aware of any drilling, sampling, recovery or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.
