Montréal (Québec) Canada – DIOS EXPLORATION COMPLETED WITH SUCCESS FIVE DRILL HOLES IN THE PROMISING MINERALIZED ROCKS OF THE CLN STRUCTURE, WITH 100 M SPACING BETWEEN HOLES. ALL DRILL HOLES HIT THE CLN MINERALIZED STRUCTURE AND RELATED FRACTURE AND POTASSIC HYDROTHERMAL ALTERATION ZONES OVER TENS OF METERS (A MINERALIZED STRIKE DRILLED OVER SOME 400-500 M) . GOLD IS ASSOCIATED WITH FINE GRAIN PYRITE. The structure is well outlined over a 1000 m length on the magnetic data. There is a 2.71 g/t gold value in outcrop 300 m southwest and a gold-in-soil anomaly (B-horizon) 150 m further away.

Outcrop samples from 2011-2012 returned gold values up to 12.65, 5.15, 2.56, 2.23 and 0.53 g/t gold along the shear. In 2017, out of nine grab samples taken along a 100 meter strike of the mineralized and altered foliated structure, eight samples returned assays superior to 0.5 g/t gold, including 12.55; 6.64; 4.66; 4.45; 2.01; 1.98 g/t gold.

THE CLN GOLD TARGET IS A NORTHEAST STRIKING GOLDBEARING STRUCTURE, SUBSIDIARY TO A MAJOR EASTWEST FAULT, 3.5 KM NORTHEAST of DIOS’ HEBERTO GOLD DRILLING DISCOVERY ON ITS LARGE AU33 PROPERTY.
The CLN (Chain Lake North) showing consists of 30-35 meters wide zone of 10-15% biotite-silica-potassic feldspar altered fractures with 1-5% disseminated pyrite and/or stringers located in the footwall of a 5-10 meters wide northeast striking shear within tonalite rocks. Outlined over a 1 000 m strike on the magnetic gradient, it doesn’t have an induced polarization signature (similarly to Heberto Gold mineralized structures).
DIOS’ AU33 wholly-owned property, without any royalties, is located 55 km south of Eleonore world-class gold mine and 15 km west of Clearwater gold deposit. DIOS has 57 million shares outstanding, a tight capital structure and was never consolidated. This release was reviewed by MJ Girard, M.Sc. Geo 43-101 QP.
