Milligan West Drill Program Identifies Target for Follow-up

Vancouver, B.C., December 20, 2017, Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V) ("Serengeti" or "the Company") announces results for drilling completed on the jointly-owned Milligan West property (Serengeti: 56.3%, Fjordland Exploration Inc: 43.7%; see news release NR 2017-12, October 4th, 2017), located 75 kilometres northwest of Fort St. James in north-central British Columbia, and four kilometres west of the currently producing Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine.

Drilling at Milligan West in 2017 totalled 1,256 metres in three holes targeting zones identified by a 2016 Induced-Polarization (IP) survey, earlier property-wide geophysical surveys and two short drill holes completed by previous workers. Encouraging results were intersected within skarn and feldspar-porphyry dykes, including 1.12 g/t gold, 0.70 g/t silver and 0.14% copper over 2.0 metres in MW-17-02, with maximum gold and silver values reaching 1.57 g/t over 1.5 metres, and 33.50 g/t over 3.1 metres, respectively.

The 2017 Milligan West program added significantly to the understanding of the local geology and has led to the identification of an untested near-surface geophysical target area approximately one kilometre to the north of the 2017 drill holes. The newly identified geophysical target area is coincident with historical copper-, zinc- and gold-in-soil geochemical anomalies, which lie directly on trend with the Mt. Milligan – Heidi Lake sulphide system to the east. Although the nature of mineralized intercepts from 2017 are discontinuous, the program confirmed that mineralization at Milligan West is associated with hydrothermal intrusive activity, and Serengeti remains optimistic in the potential for the property to host a significant mineralized system.

Moving forward, Serengeti plans to potentially expand the IP survey coverage and test the refined target area with shallow drill holes. To view more information on the Milligan West property, please visit the Company’s website: https://www.serengetiresources.com/projects/milligan-west/

Notable intersections from the 2017 drilling program as well as associated geological observations are included in the table below.
