Quartz Closes $3.255 Million Private Placement and Accelerates Drill Program Planning

Upcoming drill program at Jake Project follows recent discovery at Maestro Project

June 3, 2024 Vancouver, BC - Quartz Mountain Resources Ltd. ("Quartz” or the “Company") (TSXV: QZM, OTC Pink: QZMRF) is pleased to announce that it has closed the $3.255 million private placement announced on May 6, 2024, through the issuance of 9,300,000 treasury common shares at $0.35 each. A key new investor, The Sutton Group Inc. , has subscribed for 6,000,000 of the shares and will become an insider of Quartz.  Of the total 9,300,000 shares, 3,300,000 will be flow-through shares (“FT Shares”) to be issued to Robert Dickinson, the Chairman.  Quartz intends to use the proceeds of the FT Shares for exploration of its 100% owned Jake and Maestro Projects in British Columbia (“BC”), while the proceeds of the non-FT Shares will be used for general working capital. All the securities have a 4-month hold period in Canada, and no commissions were paid in connection with the financings.

Quartz is now funded to commence drilling in mid-June at its Jake Porphyry Copper-Gold-Silver Property (“Jake”), located 160 km north of Smithers, BC.  The Jake drill program aims to discover a new, significant scale, porphyry copper-gold-silver deposit.  The Jake drilling follows first drilling at the Company’s Maestro Project that discovered an exciting high-grade, gold-silver lode within extensive precious metal mineralization (see Quartz news release dated April 9, 2024).

“Quartz is now well funded and will be moving forward aggressively on both its Jake and Maestro Projects,” said Chairman Bob Dickinson. “We are eager to commence our drill program at Jake given our assessment of this important scale opportunity which is aligned with the potential for a global commodity super cycle to drive demand for porphyry deposits.  Projects like Jake and Maestro are vital to growing Canada’s clean, modern economy, and porphyry deposits are the world’s most important sources of copper, gold and silver.  Porphyries present the potential for outsized gains, which support Quartz’s strategy of developing high demand, high value discoveries that are attractive to potential transaction partners,” concluded Dickinson.

About Jake

The 100% owned Jake Property is located 160 km north of Smithers in north central BC.  It is accessible by helicopter and close to historical logging roads which lead to mining support towns of Smithers and Hazelton.

Mineralization at Jake is situated within a prominent rusty coloured gossan measuring 3.5 km long by 1.5 km wide.  Within the gossan is north-trending dyke swarms that intrude into sedimentary rocks.  The combination of extensive historical and recent exploration work has outlined an expansive, altered and mineralized area.

To accurately delineate high-potential porphyry Cu-Au deposit targets within this large mineral system, a series of modern exploration programs have been undertaken.  These surveys were designed to build on very compelling historical data developed by legendary porphyry copper explorers (Kennco, Canadian Superior, Cities Service, Placer Development and Teck Corp).  Taken together this comprehensive Jake Project technical data base has defined a significant-scale porphyry copper-gold-silver deposit target which underlies an extensive area of highly anomalous Cu, Au, Ag, and Mo values in soils.

About Maestro

The 100% owned Maestro Project, located in central BC, lies adjacent to Highway 16, 15 km north of Houston and 50 km south of Smithers, providing year-round road access to the project and nearby infrastructure.

Since acquiring the property, Quartz has conducted comprehensive exploration programs, including geochemical sampling, IP geophysics, airborne magnetic surveys, hyperspectral studies, detailed relogging of historical drill core, and gold assaying of pulp samples derived from historical analyses of numerous core holes located across the Maestro property.

Results from Quartz’s first two drill holes at the Prodigy Zone on the Maestro Property intersected a high-grade gold-silver lode deposit within multi-generation precious metal mineralization all hosted within a Mo-Cu porphyry environment.  Core hole PR 23-02 intersected 102 m grading 2.22 g/t Au and 104 g/t Ag, including 12 m grading 1.23 g/t Au and 586 g/t Ag and 36 m of 5.73 g/t Au and 87 g/t Ag.  Notably, green sericite alteration reminiscent of deposits such as Blackwater-Davidson, which is currently being placed into production, plays a significant role at Prodigy. The discovery is open in multiple directions and at depth, promising significant further potential.
