(CSE: BNN) (OTCQB: BNNHF) (FSE: 5YZ0) ("BNN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the ground staking of 18 new claim blocks, totalling approximately 376 hectares west and northwest of the current claim blocks. These claim blocks cover the prospective western trend of the Alotta geophysical/geochemical anomalies as indicated in Figure 1.

The Alotta property now consists of a total of 96 mineral claims that cover approximately 1,926 hectares that is located 50 km south-east of Western Copper's Casino deposit which is ranked as one of the top ten largest, undeveloped, copper-gold porphyry deposits in the world.

Spring Drill ProgramCurrently, the company is proposing to complete up to 5 drill holes for a total of 2,500 metres as part of the fall 2023 diamond drilling program that paused in November for the winter season. The proposed holes will focus on several high priority and undrilled tested coincident geochemical/geophysical anomalies along a four-kilometre trend.
