GRANDE PRAIRIE, ALBERTA (February 9, 2023):

Angkor Resources Corp. (TSXV: ANK and OTCQB: ANKOF) (“Angkor” or the “Company”) announces its trenching program on selected targets at Wild Boar prospect of the Andong Meas concession.

Previously, flat lying quartz veins float were discovered to a depth of 1.0 meters within this Induced Polarization (IP) anomaly which grade up to 25.16 gpt Au (grams per tonne of gold).  Initial assays from the Wild Boar prospect expanded the near-surface gold anomaly to 1.5 by 1.2 kilometres with up to 25.6 gpt Au from assayed vein samples on the 100%-owned Andong Meas license.

The mineralization appeared in clusters with the best cluster consisting of 7 adjacent samples ranging from 5.6 gpt Au up to 25.6 gpt Au over a width of about 12 meters. The quartz vein float pieces, being resistant to weathering, are remnants of veins weathered out of the bedrock and have accumulated near surface by this action.

A program consisting of three trenches totaling approximately 90 line-meters is underway.  Each trench is being dug to at least 30 meters in length, 3 meters in width, and 2.6 meters deep.  Although still near surface, this would allow the company to identify and evaluate grades at greater depth to potentially determine the source of the anomaly as compared to the shallow pits conducted in the past, which were limited to a depth of 1.5 meters.

Sampling over a square meter including chips above will provide a representative analysis of what appears between 1.0 meter and 2.0 meter

The follow-up trenching program, along with the ground magnetics, will be of great help to refine drill targets in Wild Boar expected to be drilled this year.  The trenching targets were placed on the previously identified ground IP anomaly characterized by high resistivity flanked by moderate “chargeability” interpreted to be that of an intact epithermal mineralization system.  Samples will be panned at Angkor facilities as part of standard analysis and a duplicate sample sent to ALS for independent assay.
