Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR)(OTCQB: ROVMF) ("Rover Metals" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has developed a 3D interpretative video model summarizing the gold exploration work carried out on the Bugow Iron Formation, the known host of the historic gold mineralization on the  Cabin Lake Gold Project (the "Property"). The 3D interpretative video model has been uploaded to Company's website for viewing by the public. The 3D model also includes both the recent geophysical and geochemical survey data, as well as Rover's updated interpreted structure of the Bugow Iron Formation.

Judson Culter, CEO at Rover Metals, states: "there is tremendous blue sky potential for high grade gold discovery given the number of untested fold areas now identified within the iron formation vis-à-vis high grade gold discovered in the historical drilling campaigns in the 1980's." The iron formation overlay can be found at time stamp 1:11 of the 3D video model.

The Company has found and GPS-referenced all the historic blasted trenches and small pits at the Andrew North and South Zones, as well as those located at the Beaver, Camp and other locations within the Property. The UAS magnetic survey was key to providing the required high-resolution and contrast on the Bugow Iron Formation, the known host of the Property's gold mineralization. The 2018 ground geochemical soil survey produced multi-element (Au-Ag-As-S-Cu) anomalies over known mineralization zones and additional zones coincident with conceptual mineralized targets.

As per Section 2.4 of NI 43-101, Aber Resources Ltd. reported a mineral inventory (that does not compare to the current CIM Definitions Standards mineral resource categories) of 100,000 tons at 0.30 ounces per ton gold at the Cabin Lake Gold zone on the north limb of the folded Bugow Iron Formation in their 1986 and 1987 annual reports. The parameters used for the resource calculation are unknown. These results are relevant as to delineate a larger zone of gold mineralization at the Cabin Lake Gold Zone, but further drilling is needed to bring that up to CIM Definition Standards. The reader is cautioned that a qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current mineral resources and Rover Metals is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources.

Technical information in this news release has been approved by Raul Sanabria, M.Sc., P.Geo., VP of Exploration at Rover Metals and the Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
