X-TERRA RESOURCES INCREASES ITS ONGOING DRILL PROGRAM OVER ITS HIGH PRIORITY TARGETS ON THE GROG AND NORTHWEST PROPERTIES

Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, January 22, 2020–X-Terra Resources Inc. (TSXV: XTT) (FRANKFURT: XTR) is pleased to announce that it has increased the overall size of the ongoing drill program over its high priority targets on the Northwest and Grog properties located in Restigouche county, New Brunswick. The drilling was kicked off over the Northwest vein system at the Trench 26 target situated in an orogenic quartz vein mineralized environment (see press releasesdated January 7, 2020and January 13, 2020for details). At theTrench 26 target location, significant networks of quartz veins can be observed over pluri-metricintervals hosted in a carbonate-chlorite alteration zone.

Based on the success and observations in the field, X-TerraResourceshas decided to add additional holes to certain targets in order to gain a better understanding of the underlying geological system andmineralized corridors. The drill team has just completed drilling the Dyke swarm target where the omnipresent sulphides, brecciation and alterations observed downhole highlights the epithermal characteristics X-Terra Resources washoping for. Oneof the targeted alteration zonesencounteredinhole number 4 extends from 22 metresdown to 38 metres. The upper part of the alteration zone was lostas part of the casing. Additional holes should help to establish geometrical parameters such as orientation and thickness.

Michael Ferreira, President and Chief ExecutiveOfficer of X-Terra Resources states, “We are very happyto see early success in thisdrillprogram. Our main focus will be to continue drilling the high priority targets while ultimately trying to connect Grog to Bellevue South/North which currently has a mineralized footprint of 1.4 kilometres”.
