Vancouver, BC, October 21st, 2019 – iMetal Resources Inc. (TSX.V: IMR) (“iMetal” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its first-ever diamond drilling program has commenced at Zone 3 in the Company’s Gowganda
West Project. Upon completion of the IP program and subsequent interpretation, a number of high chargeability anomalies were identified. As such, the iMetal team has determined that Zone 3 be the company’s first priority. (Please see press release,
October 4th, 2019).

The Zone 3 IP survey covered an area 1.2 km square and 500 meters in vertical height. iMetal will drill its first test hole of this major anomaly to a depth of 500 meters. Arrangements have already been made with a drilling company from the local area.
Laframboise Drilling from Earlton, Ontario, has been contracted for the drill program.  iMetal intends to assay this drill hole for gold, base metals and other elements. Resulting core data will be logged at the company’s facilities
in Kirkland Lake, Ontario.    Johan Grandin, iMetal President and CEO, commented: “We are delighted to commence our first-ever drill campaign at Zone 3.  The recently completed IP program has identified several high priority exploration
targets at Zone 3 and we look forward to seeing initial diamond drill hole results.  In addition, a new drill program targeting the IP anomalies identified at depth at Zone 1 South is also currently being finalized.  We look forward to providing
the market with further updates.”

We seek safe Harbor.
