Amarc President & CEO Dr. Diane Nicolson and Ron Thiessen, Director and CEO of Hunter Dickinson Inc. (“HDI”) will be presenting on June 7, 2023 at 8:30AM EDT to discuss Amarc’s three high potential copper-gold districts in British Columbia, Canada.

Amarc's expansive, 100%-owned copper±gold districts are located in British Columbia. The JOY, DUKE and IKE districts host four known copper±gold deposits prime for moving toward development, and 10 porphyry copper-gold deposit targets that are ready for drill discovery.
Active exploration programs were completed in 2022 and continue into 2023 through the Company’s earn-in agreements with Freeport-McMoran Mineral Properties Canada Inc. (“Freeport”) and Boliden Mineral Canada Ltd. (“Boliden”).
Freeport at JOY and Boliden at DUKE can earn up to a 70% interest in the districts by funding $110 million and $90 million of staged earn-in expenditures, respectively.
With potentially $200 million in non-dilutive funding, the investments made through these agreements will enable considerable advancement of the exploration and development of our projects. In addition, the fully-funded, ongoing exploration activities at the JOY and DUKE Districts will provide a significant flow of results in 2023.

About Amarc Resources
Amarc is a mineral exploration and development company with an experienced and successful management team focused on developing a new generation of long-life, high-value porphyry Cu-Au mines in BC. By combining high-demand projects with dynamic management, Amarc has created a solid platform to create value from its exploration and development-stage assets.
Amarc is advancing its 100%-owned IKE, DUKE and JOY porphyry Cu±Au districts located in different prolific porphyry regions of southern, central and northern BC, respectively. Each district represents significant potential for the development of multiple and important-scale, porphyry Cu±Au deposits. Importantly, each of the three districts is located in proximity to industrial infrastructure – including power, highways and rail.
Amarc is associated with HDI, a diversified, global mining company with a 35-year history of porphyry Cu deposit discovery and development success. Previous and current HDI projects include some of BC’s and the world’s most important porphyry deposits – such as Pebble, Mount Milligan, Southern Star, Kemess South, Kemess North, Gibraltar, Prosperity, Xietongmen, Newtongmen, Florence, Casino, Sisson, Maggie, IKE, PINE and DUKE. From its head office in Vancouver, Canada, HDI applies its unique strengths and capabilities to acquire, develop, operate and monetize mineral projects.
Amarc works closely with local governments, Indigenous groups and stakeholders in order to advance its mineral projects responsibly, and in a manner that contributes to sustainable community and economic development. We pursue early and meaningful engagement to ensure our mineral exploration and development activities are well coordinated and broadly supported, address local priorities and concerns, and optimize opportunities for collaboration. In particular, we seek to establish mutually beneficial partnerships with Indigenous groups within whose traditional territories our projects are located, through the provision of jobs, training programs, contract opportunities, capacity funding agreements and sponsorship of community events. All Amarc work programs are carefully planned to achieve high levels of environmental and social performance.
