Encouraging Results Reported by Fathom at Albert Lake Nickel/PGE Project

Cranbrook, B.C., April 18th, 2024: Eagle Royalties Ltd. (“ER.CN”:CSE, or “Eagle Royalties”) has reviewed and is encouraged by recent news issued by Fathom Nickel (“FNI.CN”:CSE) or “Fathom” on their 100% owned Albert Lake Project in Saskatchewan, a portion of which is underlain by dispositions subject to royalties held by Eagle Royalties.

The majority of holes drilled by Fathom during the Winter 2024 program were located on mineral dispositions subject to a 2% net smelter royalty (the “Royalty”) held by Eagle Royalties (see location map, following). The Royalty may be reduced to 1% upon payment to Eagle Royalties of CDN $1,000,000.

According to a news release issued by Fathom on April 16th 2024, six drill-holes (AL24075 - AL24080), totaling 1,386 meters were completed over the winter at Albert Lake, with Hole AL24077 reported to intersect elevated nickel tenor values similar to that of the historic Rottenstone Ni-Cu+PGE Deposit located 1.2km to the north. Furthermore, bore-hole electromagnetic (“BHEM”) geophysical surveys completed on select holes indicated the presence of shallow, off-hole anomalies. Fathom CEO Ian Fraser remarked on the results of AL24077: “The elevated nickel concentration in Rottenstone-like ultramafic rock and the very-high associated nickel tenor identified in our drill-hole AL24077 is a very significant development… We think the robustness and size of the multi-element soil geochemistry anomaly around AL24077 indicates chemical contributions from a large mineralized ultramafic body in the footprint of this soil geochemistry anomaly. The Company plans to further evaluate this robust soil geochemical anomaly by undertaking detailed surface geochemistry and geophysics to reconcile soil geochemistry with surface and BHEM anomalies. Understanding the coincident geochemical and geophysical responses coincident with the ultramafic stratigraphy in AL24077 will help guide the next phase of drilling.” (for full technical details of the program including hole locations, analytical results, QAQC data, etc., please refer to Fathom news release April 16, 2024)   
Management of Eagle Royalties is encouraged by results to date and congratulates the Fathom Nickel team on their work in advancing the Albert Lake Project.
