Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / September 24, 2018 – NORTEC MINERALS CORP. (the "Company" or "Nortec") (TSXV: NVT): Further to the press releases dated September 20 and August 9, 2018, Nortec announces a new gold discovery from the company’s RAB (rotary air blast) drilling program on the TOM 2 South Target. TOM 2 South is located approximately 4 kilometres southeast of TOM 1 North Target (Figure 1). RAB holes returned highly significant gold values of 39m@0.7g/t from 3m from surface including 9m@1.1g/t from 27m, 18m@0.5g/t from surface, 10m@0.6g/t from surface and 6m@1.5g/t from surface including 7.42g/t from 0m to 1m (see Figures 2 & 3).

This work also confirms the great potential of the Tomboko Exploration Project to host significant Gold zones.

Mohan Vulimiri comments, "This RAB drilling program confirmed the excellent potential of the Tomboko project to host several mineralized zones. The Company will continue detailed exploration to define and delineate TOM 1 and TOM 2 targets, and exploration on other geochemical anomalies. Dr. Serigne Dieng, Ph.D., AusIMM. has determined that the Tomboko Project has all the signatures to host significant gold zones. Dr. Dieng has extensive experience in the study of structural controls and modes of occurrence of gold deposits in West Africa."

Dr. Dieng is a registered qualified professional geoscientist in accordance with NI 43-101 and JORC standards.

Conclusions &Recommendations

The preliminary RAB drilling program carried out as a follow-up of the termite mound geochemical gold anomalies returned very significant results. The mineralization appears to be open along strike to the North and down dip (Figure 3). Systematic RC drilling is required to test the extensions of the gold mineralization along strike and down-dip along with confirmation diamond core drilling to determine the host rocks and structural controls of mineralization.

For quality control, RAB samples were logged in detail, split into 2 kg to 3 kg samples and analysed by SGS Labs. A duplicate, a blank and a standard were inserted every 10th sample for quality control. Samples are processed by Fire Assay with A.A. finish under the SGS FAA505 protocol. The RAB, rock and termite mound samples were analysed by SGS Labs, an accredited laboratory in Bamako, Mali.

Mohan R. Vulimiri, M.Sc., P. Geo, CEO, Director and Michael Collins, B. Sc. (Honours), P. Geo. Director are Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Vulimiri and Mr. Collins have approved the corporate and technical content contained in this press release.
