Callinex Acquires the High-Grade Tara Lake VMS Deposit Near Flin Flon, MB

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/17 -- Highlights:

--  Agreement to acquire the Big Island Project located near Flin Flon,
    Manitoba that includes a high-grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide
    ("VMS") deposit;
--  Previous drilling at the Tara Lake Deposit is highlighted by results
    including 7.4m of 35% Zn Eq, 12.4m of 34% Zn Eq. and 19.6m of 24% Zn
    Eq., with no subsequent exploration conducted since 1991; and
--  Callinex now controls over 100 sq. km land package within the Flin Flon
    Mining District.

Callinex Mines Inc. (the "Company" or "Callinex") (TSX VENTURE: CNX) (OTCQX: CLLXF) is pleased to announce that it has signed an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Big Island Project (the "Project") located 10 km east from HudBay's processing facilities in Flin Flon, Manitoba. The Project includes the Tara Lake Deposit, which is one of the highest grade VMS discoveries within the Flin Flon Mining District. The western portion of the Project may contain a similar sequence of primitive arc tholeiite volcanic rocks that host the Flin Flon, Callinan and 777 Mines and that have collectively produced over 100 million tonnes of ore. Callinex now controls one of the largest and most prospective land positions totaling over 100 sq. km within the Flin Flon Mining District (See Figure 1).

Max Porterfield, President and CEO, stated, "The Big Island Project contains one of the highest-grade zinc and gold-rich VMS deposits ever discovered within the Flin Flon Mining District. We are looking forward to conducting systematic exploration to discover additional mineralization. Callinex has assembled one of the most prospective and strategic land packages within the Flin Flon area and is uniquely positioned with its technical team to maximize the potential of these projects."

Between 1987 and 1988 Westfield Minerals discovered exceptionally high-grade zinc and gold-rich VMS mineralization over considerable widths with highlights including (See Table 1):

--  DDH 87-03 intersected 12.4m of 33.9% Zn Eq. including 22.4% Zn, 5.8 g/t
    Au, 93.6 g/t Ag and 0.6% Cu at a starting depth of 22.0m;
--  DDH 87-11 intersected 7.4m of 35.3% Zn Eq. including 20.3% Zn, 7.2 g/t
    Au, 110.1 g/t Ag and 1.2% Cu at a starting depth of 24.9m; and
--  DDH 88-41 intersected 19.6m of 23.8% Zn Eq. including 14.6% Zn, 3.1 g/t
    Au, 58.6 g/t Ag and 1.7% Cu at a starting at a depth of 72.1m.

In 1989, after the first 10 of 12 holes intersected mineralization, Westfield Minerals estimated the deposit contained a historical, "geologically inferred mineralized body" of 200,000 tons grading 10-15% zinc, 1-2% copper, 1.7-3.1 g/t gold and 34.3 to 102.9 g/t silver. Additionally, historic trenching in a nearby separate zone outlined 9.4 g/t gold over 3.5m and 8.3 g/t gold over 2.9m at surface.

The historical "geologically inferred mineralized body" and resource estimates cited above is mentioned for historical purposes only and uses terminology not compliant with current reporting standards. The reliability of these historical estimates is unknown but considered relevant by Callinex as it represents a significant target for future exploration work by Callinex. The assumptions, parameters and methods used to calculate this historical resource estimate are not known to Callinex. The qualified person has not made any attempt to re-classify the estimates accordingly to current NI 43-101 standards of disclosure or the CIM definitions. In order for these resources to be current, Callinex will be required to conduct additional drilling on the Big Island Project. Callinex is not treating this estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves as defined in NI 43-101.

The initial exploration focus will be on identifying extensions to this high-grade mineralization, which was initially discovered by gold-focused geological and geochemical methods in 1987. Interestingly, no follow-up exploration has occurred at the Tara Lake Deposit since the initial discovery and subsequent exploration that was conducted between 1987 and 1991. Callinex believes this represents a compelling exploration opportunity given the tenor of mineralization combined with modern geological and geophysical advancements over the last 25 years.

Callinex anticipates commencing a field program at the Project once the ongoing drilling program at the Pine Bay Project has concluded. Additionally, an initial drill program may occur as part of the planned drilling campaign at the Pine Bay Project during the summer.

Notes:
1) NR indicates that assay results were not reported in historic assessment
   files and true widths of mineralization are not known.
2) Gold and silver values have been converted from troy ounces per short ton
   to grams per metric tonne. One troy ounce per short ton is equal to
   34.2857 grams per tonne.
3) Zinc equivalent grades are based on the following metal prices: zinc
   US$1.25/lb, copper US$2.65/lb, gold US$1,220 per oz and silver US$17.4
   per oz. Metal recoveries of 100% are applied in the zinc equivalent
   calculation. The zinc equivalent calculation is as follows: ZnEq = 100
   ((Au Price in (g) x Au Grade) + (Ag Price in (g) x Ag Grade) + (Cu
   Price(i)2204.6 x Cu Grade(%)/100) + (Zn Price(i)2204.6 x (Zn
   Grade(%)/100))/Zn Price(i)2204.6
4) Numbers may not add due to rounding.
