Komet – End of drilling campaign on Kabaya in Mali.

Quebec, August 23, 2017 – Komet Resources Inc. (“Komet” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the end of its drilling program on the Kabaya zone on the Dabia South permit (previously known as Moussala) in Mali. 53 holes of reverse circulation (RC) drilling were completed for a total of 4243 meters and 4233 samples were analyzed in addition to 248 blanks, 249 standards and 249 duplicates.

The Dabia South permit is located in the Senegalo-Malian shear zone which is already host to several important gold deposits such as Fekola (5M ounces) located at only 20 km to the west and Loulo (12M ounces) at 50 km north.

The Kabaya zone is oriented north-south and is traced over a strike length of 500 m, a width of 230 m and a depth of 80 m. Furthermore, with the addition of the last results, the south-west extension is traced over a length of 200 m and a width of 50 m, also with a depth of 80 m.

The gold-rich zone is open in all directions except towards the north where it may be shifted eastwardly according to an apparent pattern on surface which seems to move mineralized sections between 25 and 30 meters to the east progressing to the north.

Following the verification of the analyzed results, of the mineralogy and of the density of material, Komet will prepare a preliminary resource calculation of the near-surface portion of the Kabaya zone and a NI43-101 compliant report.

Mr. André Gagné, president and CEO, stated: “With the quality of those results, the future perspectives of our Dabia South permit are becoming more and more interesting. Consequently, we will accelerate the setup of the next drilling campaign.”

Samples were analyzed by fire assay with AA finish on 50 g sample aliquots at the SGS Laboratory in Bamako, Mali. Drilling supervision and sampling at the drill site were performed by qualified technical staff. The QA/QC program and the processing of results were designed by qualified geologists according to NI 43-101 regulation standards and best industry practices. One blank or standard or duplicate sample was inserted for every 20 samples analyzed.
