Regulus Resources Recommences Drilling at AntaKori Project

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Regulus
Resources Inc. ("Regulus" or the "Company", TSX-V: REG, OTCQX: RGLSF) is
pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the AntaKori copper-gold
project located in Cajamarca, Peru. Drilling will focus on the promising Anta
Norte geophysical targets to the north of the property (see Figure 1). The
program has started with one drill rig, with a second drill rig to commence in
the next few days.

Phase II Program

The current drill campaign is part of the 25,000 m Phase II program, of which
16,368 m were completed prior to the shutdown in March 2020 due to Covid-19.
All holes in the Phase II program to date were completed prior to the Company
receiving its new Anta Norte drill permits (see November 26, 2019 press
release), which now allow the Company to move to the northern portion of the
property and properly test the various Anta Norte geophysical targets.
Previous drilling along the edges of these targets returned long runs of
significant mineralization in several holes (see January 16, 2020, November
19, 2019, and September 5, 2019 press releases).

Initial Drill Holes

The initial drill holes will be focused on the Colquirrumi claims where the
Company has the right to earn up to a 70% interest from Compañía Minera
Colquirrumi S.A. (see May 18, 2016 press release) by drilling 7,500 m, of
which 2,014 m have been completed to date. The reason to start on this ground
is to test high priority geophysical targets (see Figure 1) while at the same
time fulfilling obligations to earn into an ownership position in the
Colquirrumi claims. It is anticipated that five to seven holes will be
completed in this area, to fulfil the 7,500 m obligation, before the Company
transitions drilling to the 100% owned Regulus claims in the Anta Norte area.

John Black, Chief Executive Officer of Regulus, commented as follows: “We
are very excited to get back to drilling at AntaKori and, with our recent
announcement of a strategic partnership with Osisko Gold Royalties, we are now
fully funded to complete the 25,000 m Phase II program at AntaKori. Our first
drill holes will test magnetic targets on the Colquirrumi claims where we hope
to encounter economic grades of copper and gold in skarn style
mineralization. The Anta Norte geophysical targets represent a very large
target area, and while this provides a significant opportunity to add
additional mineralization to the already sizeable resource at AntaKori, this
is a frontier area, so it will likely take numerous holes to fully test and
evaluate the area to determine the extent and geometry of the system.”

Qualified Person

The scientific and technical data contained in this news release pertaining to
the AntaKori project has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Kevin B. Heather,
Chief Geological Officer, FAusIMM, who serves as the qualified person (QP)
