Komet - Gold Discovery South to the Guiro Mine

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - March 29, 2017) - Komet Resources Inc. ("Komet" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KMT) is pleased to announce the first sampling results from a new mineralized zone discovered 488 meters south to the Guiro mine.

A first sampling was done by Komet's geologists in gold panner's bags from fresh pit material. Those are selected samples and are not necessary representative of the mineralization of this structure. A second sampling, by right angle channels over the full width of the mineralized vein structure, was done by Komet geologists directly in the pits, at depths between 15 and 18 meters.

Five active gold panner's pits are identified along an estimated vein network covering 30 meters in width and a minimum of 130 meters in length, parallel to the Guiro vein. Komet is planning an exploration program on this zone at the beginning of April with a diamond drill rig that was mobilized for Guiro last week.

For André Gagné, president and chief executive officer, "This new discovery is a clear indication of the high gold potential of the Guiro permit while we are just beginning its systematic exploration by modern methods."
