September 1, 2020: Vancouver, BC Canada CopAur Minerals Inc.. (TSX-V:CPAU) (the”Company”) is pleased to announce it has completed it inaugural reconnaissance work program at the Williams Copper-Gold Property. The Williams property is located halfway between the Red Chris Mine and Kemess North Mine, in the prolific Toodoggone Trench and on rend with the Lawyers Mine currently being explored by Benchmark Metals Inc. (BNCH-TSXV). The Williams Copper-gold property hosts three target areas: The T-Bill area which is prospective for mesothermal style gold mineralization, the GIC porphyry prospect which is a porphyry copper-gold target, and three additional gossan zones east of the GIC prospect. In 2020 the Company collected seventeen silt samples, twenty-one grab and trench samples, one hundred and forty-four soils, and prospected areas of interest. All these samples have been submitted to the laboratory for analysis. Observations from the 2020 program indicate, MDRU's seminal paper (2019) “An Exploration Framework for Porphyry to Epithermal Transitions in the Toodoggone Mineral District” is a useful and potentially valid exploration model for the Williams Gold Copper Property. MDRU’s new framework suggests the potential for porphyry-type copper mineralization in areas previously known for epithermal mineralization The T-Bill bulk tonnage gold prospect is underlain by Devonian to-Permian metavolcanics rocks that are altered to carbonate-muscovite-quartz schist associated with gold mineralization. Gold-rich quartz-arsenopyrite veins, locally with visible gold, are broadly co-spatial with the carbonate-muscovite alteration. Highlights of previous historical drilling gave eleven separate 2m intercepts with > 12 g/t gold, including one intercept that gave 35 g/t over 2 m. The GIC porphyry prospect is north of the T-Bill prospect and occurs as a 500- by 1,400-metre copper and gold-in-soil geochemical anomaly that partially overlaps a 600- by 1,800-metre zone of high chargeability and moderate to high resistivity. Previous limited drilling on the periphery of the zone intersected 4.5 m at 2.78 gpt gold: 1.4 m at 0.07 gold, 0.20% copper in propylitic and silica -sericite alteration Technical disclosure in this news release has been reviewed and approved by CopAur Minerals Inc. Vice President and shareholder Derrick Strickland, P. Geo, a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
