About Kria Resources Ltd.

Kria Resources is a base metal exploration and development company focused on high-quality, advanced-stage base metal assets. Kria's primary asset is the Halfmile Lake and Stratmat properties near Bathurst, New Brunswick. The Halfmile Lake property has a NI 43-101 compliant Indicated mineral resource estimate of 6.26 million tonnes grading 8.13% zinc, 2.58% lead, 0.22% copper and 30.78 g/t silver using a 5.0% capped zinc equivalent cut-off grade and an Inferred resource estimate of 6.08 million tonnes grading 6.69% zinc, 1.83% lead, 0.14% copper and 20.51 g/t silver using a 5.0% capped zinc equivalent cut-off grade. A recently completed Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Halfmile Lake project (the "PEA") estimates a pre-tax NPV of C$587 million and IRR of over 16%. The PEA is preliminary in nature; it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. The Stratmat property has an Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 5.52 million tonnes grading 6.11% zinc, 2.59% lead, 0.40% copper and 54.21 g/t silver using a 5.0% zinc equivalent cut-off grade.

Kria also has the Ruttan copper-zinc sulphide project near Leaf Rapids, Manitoba that has an NI 43-101 compliant mineral inferred resource estimate of 19.75 million tonnes grading 1.17% copper and 1.47% zinc using a 1.0% capped copper equivalent cut-off grade.
