Crestview Exploration Inc. announce that further to the Company’s news release of October 18, 2023, it has completed the first phase of its fall sampling program at the historic Falcon Mine project in the Tuscarora Mountains of Elko County, Nevada. The northern boundary of the Falcon Mine project is located approximately 1.5 kilometers south of the Company’s flagship Rock Creek property.
The sampling focused on the large vein hosting the historic Falcon Mine and Scorpion Mine. The Company was able to trace the vein at surface over a distance of approximately 1.5 kilometers from a prospect pit approximately 100 meters south of the Falcon mine entrance north towards Rock Creek. Forty samples were collected from vein outcroppings and float at intervals along the vein as well as along a road cut crossing this vein between the Falcon and Scorpion mine workings. The samples have been delivered to the lab for assay and analysis.
Additional areas and features were noted for immediate exploration and sampling, including continued outcropping of the herein described vein. The Company plans to return as soon as possible to conduct further field work, weather permitting.
Crestview looks forward to receiving and reporting the findings of the laboratory analysis currently underway within the next three to four weeks.

About Crestview Exploration Inc:
Crestview Exploration: is an experienced exploration company focused on the exploration and development of its portfolio of gold and silver properties located in prolific mining districts of geopolitically stable Nevada, which is currently ranked as the number one mining and exploration jurisdiction globally, by the Fraser Institute.
Rock Creek gold project is Crestview’s flagship asset, with 74 unpatented lode mining claims wholly owned and controlled by CRS. The Rock Creek property was acquired in 2017, and the company went public in 2019. Emboldened by the results coming out of Rock Creek, Crestview strategically expanded on the land position with the acquisition of the nearby Divide Mine prospect in April 2020, and the acquisition of the Falcon silver-gold prospect in September 2022. Between the three properties, all targeting similar mineralization and likely the same hydrothermal system, Crestview now holds 260 total claims in close proximity of one another. These three gold prospects, along with the nearby Castile prospect, are situated in a region with proven “world class” gold deposits (including Midas, Jerritt Canyon, Betze-Post, Meikle, and Gold Quarry), where the potential of finding large, high-grade gold-silver deposits is favourable.
The Cimarron project is located in the San Antonio Mountains of Nye County, Nevada, and is comprised of 31 unpatented lode mining claims, including control of 6 historically producing claims associated with the historic San Antonio mine. The property is located in the prolific Walker-Lane trend, approximately 44 kms south of the “world class” Round Mountain deposit.
