Alphamin Reports Significant Results from Additional Holes in DRC Bisie Tin Project

Alphamin Resources Corp. ("Alphamin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from three additional holes and one redrill on its wholly owned Bisie Tin Project (Bisie Project) in east central Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Drilling continued to identify significant grades and widths of tin mineralisation at Bisie.

Results from BGC003 and BGH003, 4 and 4A are shown in Tables 1 and in Figure 1.

Drill hole BGH003 drilled 100m north of BGH001 (27.1m @ 0.88% Sn from 106.85m and 4.75m @ 1.22% Sn from 144.8m reported 11m @ 1.48% Sn from 71m including 2.5m @ 5.76% Sn from 74.5m. In addition the zone reported a significant copper intercept of 11m @ 0.88% Cu from 72m including 4.5m @ 1.74% Cu.

Drill hole BGH004A was a redrill of BGH004 which was abandoned in the zinc zone due to poor ground conditions. The hole was collared 200m south of BGH001 and reported 13.3m @ 0.43% Sn confirming the mineralized system is open to the south.

Soil samples were collected over 4km of the Bisie ridge. A coherent lead in soil anomaly (refer Figure 2) was identified along the extent of the ridge to the limit of sampling in the south. Lead, an important pathfinder due to its low mobility, is commonly associated with the zone of tin mineralization and suggests tin mineralization has the potential continue along the ridge. This potential is supported by the drilling where tin mineralization is open in all directions at Gecomines and Golgotha.

Interpretation of the landsat imagery suggests the mineralized zone is structurally complex and is cross-cut by a series of W-E and NW-SE trending structures. The tin mineralization is often observed as blocks of cassiterite in the core which occur as a cassiterite breccia within the broader zone of mineralization. The true mineralized potential at Bisie will be clarified by infill drilling.

The Bisie Project is located within the Walikale District roughly 140 km west-northwest of the regional centre of Goma in one of the world's principal Precambrian orogenic-metallogenic provinces. Mineralisation at Bisie is unique due to the high grades of tin exploited historically by artisanal miners and confirmed with drilling. Furthermore the tin is hosted in highly altered schists with associated copper and REE (Cerium and Lanthanum). A second parallel zone rich in zinc, lead and silver was also identified in the drilling. The two zones are generally discrete although lead and zinc mineralization is often associated with the tin zone.

Lars Pearl, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, has verified technical data disclosed in this release.
