North Arrow Starts Exploration Drilling Program At Loki Diamond Project, Lac De Gras, NWT

March 5, 2018

North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV-NAR) is pleased to announce the start of an exploration drilling program at the Company’s 100% owned Loki Diamond Project, Northwest Territories, located in the Lac de Gras region, approximately 30 km southwest, and 24 km west of the Ekati and Diavik diamond mines, respectively and immediately adjacent to the west of the Company’s LDG joint venture property with Dominion Diamonds.

Field crews and a diamond drill have been mobilized to site and ground geophysical surveys have been completed. Approximately 1,000 m of drilling is planned to evaluate the size potential and internal geology of the diamondiferous EG05 kimberlite and to test a number of new targets defined by ground geophysical surveys and having good kimberlite indicator mineral support. Details on these drill targets can be found in North Arrow’s February 12, 2018 presentation on the Company’s website. Drilling is expected to continue through to the end of March 2018. Funding for the drill program is being supported, in part, by the Northwest Territories’ Mining Incentive Program.

North Arrow’s diamond exploration programs are conducted under the direction of Kenneth Armstrong, P.Geo. (ON), President and CEO of North Arrow and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101.  Mr. Armstrong has reviewed the contents of this press release.
