Cloudbreak Discovery and Alianza Minerals Make First Acquisition Under Southwest US Copper Alliance with Klondike Project, Colorado

Cloudbreak Discovery PLC (LSE: CDL) ("Cloudbreak") and Alianza Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: ANZ, OTCQB: TARSF) ("Alianza") announce the acquisition of the first project generated from their newly formed Strategic Alliance (the "Alliance"). The Klondike Property ("Klondike"), located in Colorado, United States, consists of 72 Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") claims, a State of Colorado Exploration Permit with an exclusive right to a State Lease.

This Alliance will focus on the identification, acquisition, and advancement of copper projects in the southwestern US specifically Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The two companies anticipate this to be the first of many projects and will continue to identify new copper exploration opportunities to acquire and advance with the intent of finding strong partners to move the projects forward.

Klondike Project Highlights:

- Road accessible 843 hectare property covering Paradox basin sedimentary package in San Miguel County, Colorado

- Favourable stratigraphy known to host sediment-hosted copper deposits in the emerging Paradox Copper Belt

   -     No copper exploration since the 1960s in the area 

- Exploring for additional deposits similar to the operating Lisbon Valley Mine, 50 kilometres ("km") to the northwest

Kyler Hardy, President and CEO of Cloudbreak , reflected on Klondike, stating "We are very excited to investigate the high-grade potential demonstrated by the historical work. We know these rocks are prospective for copper mineralisation as evidenced by other deposits in the belt and the active Lisbon Valley Copper Mine".

Jason Weber, President and CEO of Alianza , noted that "The Klondike property is the first example of the ideas generated out of this alliance and demonstrates the potential we see for additional, bona fide copper prospects in this under-explored region."

About the Klondike Project

The Klondike project is located approximately 25 km south of Naturita, Colorado. This property lies within the Paradox Copper Belt, which includes the producing Lisbon Valley Copper Mine. There are numerous historical copper occurrences that have been identified throughout the district, however, many of these have not been explored using modern exploration techniques.

At Klondike, documented copper exploration ceased in the 1960s with subsequent exploration targeting uranium during the 1970s. Previous workers reported high-grade copper mineralisation highlighted by results of 6.3% copper and 23.3 grams per tonne ("g/t") silver in outcrop. In addition to its high-grade potential, disseminated copper-silver mineralisation has been observed which may be amenable to modern open pit mining with Solvent Extraction Electro Winning ("SXEW") processing similar to the Lisbon Valley Mine. Sedimentary-hosted copper deposits are an important contributor to world copper production, accounting for more than 15% of the world's copper supply annually.

Figure 1. Klondike Property Location Map

Klondike is located at the southeast end of a gypsum salt anticline in a similar structural setting as Lisbon Valley. Copper mineralisation occurs in bleached and altered, porous and permeable, sandstone units adjacent to small graben-bounding normal faults. Copper mineralisation in outcrop includes malachite, azurite, chalcocite and black copper oxides.

Surface sampling of mineralised outcrops along the graben faults has yielded assay results up to 6.3% copper and 23.3 g/t silver. Eleven out of 15 samples reported from a limited historical prospecting and mapping programme returned assays ranging from 0.12 to 6.3% copper and below detection to 85.4 g/t silver. Additionally, disseminated copper-silver mineralisation has also been identified in outcropping sandstones of Jurassic and Permian age. Both styles of mineralisation will be investigated in upcoming work programs with the goal of refining drill targets in these units. Initial work will include detailed geological mapping, soil and rock sampling, and geophysics.

The project is year-round road accessible, traveling 2 km of gravel road from paved highway. The project is comprised of 72 mining claims on Federal mineral rights managed by the BLM, in addition to an Exploration Permit with an exclusive right to a State Lease from the State of Colorado.

Alianza and Cloudbreak expect to commence exploring on the property imminently.
