Klondex Provides Exploration Update at Fire Creek; Surface Drilling Discovers High Grade Mineralization, Including 8.25 opt Au over 1.7 ft; Underground Drilling Continues to Extend Near Mine High Grade Veins

VANCOUVER, BC—(Marketwired – November 15, 2017) – (TSX: KDX) (NYSE American: KLDX)(“Klondex” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the 2017 surface and underground exploration drill programs at its Fire Creek Mine (“Fire Creek”) located in northern Nevada, USA.

Surface Exploration Drilling Highlights: (see TABLE 1 for complete results)

  • FCC–0092: 1.27 opt Au over 14.0 ft, or 43.69 g/t over 4.3 m – Zeus (formerly identified as the West Zone)
    — Including 8.25 opt Au over 1.7 ft, or 282.93 g/t over 0.5 m
    and 0.58 opt Au over 1.9 ft, or 19.71 g/t over 0.6 m
  • FCC–0093: 2.03 opt Au over 2.0 ft, or 69.43 g/t over 0.6 m – Zeus
    and 0.18 opt Au over 15.7 ft, or 6.08 g/t over 4.8 m

Underground Drilling Highlights: (see TABLE 1 for complete results)

  • FCU–0796: 9.96 opt AuEq over 0.8 ft, or 341.35 g/t over 0.2 m – Karen
  • FCU–0901: 2.56 opt AuEq over 1.9 ft, or 87.78 g/t over 0.6 m – Joyce
    and 4.88 opt AuEq over 1.3 ft, or 167.25 g/t over 0.4 m – Honeyrunner
  • FCU–0913: 4.73 opt AuEq over 1.4 ft, or 162.05 g/t over 0.4 m – Joyce
  • FCU–0900: 2.18 opt AuEq over 3.2 ft, or 74.79 g/t over 1.0 m – Vein 18
  • FCU–0902: 2.13 opt AuEq over 1.0 ft, or 73.13 g/t over 0.3 m – Joyce
  • FCU–0916: 2.01 opt AuEq over 1.0 ft, or 68.96 g/t over 0.3 m – Joyce

DRILL SUMMARY: (FIGURE 1)
Three surface drill holes totaling 4,171 ft (1,271 m) have been completed to–date on the Zeus target. A total of 52 underground drill holes totaling 30,843 ft (9,401 m) were drilled from current underground workings.

SURFACE EXPLORATION DRILLING KEY POINTS: (FIGURES 2 and 3)
This surface exploration drill program was to follow up on the 2016 exploration program which successfully tested a north–south geophysical anomaly located approximately 4,000 ft (1,219 m) west of the current mine workings. These drill results discovered a zone of high grade mineralization within the Zeus structure. Drilling to–date has delineated a mineralized area within the structure approximately 650 ft (198 m) in length and 400 ft (122 m) vertically, within 400 ft (122 m) of surface and is open in all directions. Additional follow up holes are in progress to continue to expand and infill this significant high grade mineralization.

UNDERGROUND DRILLING KEY POINTS (FIGURES 4 AND 5):
This underground drill program was designed to extend mineralization up and down–dip on the existing veins currently in production. Results continue to support high grade mineralization continuity in both directions outside the currently defined resource. These drill results are not included in the current resource estimate.

The up–dip underground drilling above the veins currently in production has returned significant assay results along a strike of 275 ft (84 m) and up–dip by 100 ft (31 m). The down–dip underground drilling below the Karen vein has returned significant assay results along a strike of 150 ft (46 m) and down–dip by 75 ft (23 m).

Mr. Brian Morris, Senior Vice President, Exploration, said, “The surface drill results are extremely exciting. These results demonstrate that the potential for high grade mineralization, similar to what is currently being mined at Fire Creek, exists within the Zeus structure about 4,000 feet northwest from our current underground development. Geophysics suggest this is a major 6,500 ft structure. We will continue step–out and infill drilling in this area to fully delineate this high grade structure with the intent to bring it into an inferred resource category in our year–end resource update to be released in Q1 2018.” Mr. Morris continued, “Additionally, the up and down–dip underground drilling was extremely productive, having the potential to add significant new near mine resources to our production profile.”

Assays were performed by American Assay Laboratories of Sparks, Nevada, as directed under the supervision of Klondex staff. This organization is an ISO 17025 accredited independent laboratory.

Zecotek to Develop 3D Head-Up Display (HUD) with a Second Major Automobile Manufacturer

SINGAPORE—(Marketwired – November 15, 2017) – Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ZMS) (FRANKFURT: W1I) (OTC PINK: ZMSPF), a developer of leading–edge photonics technologies for industrial, healthcare and scientific markets, is pleased to announce that it is now working with a second major European automobile manufacturer to integrate its 3D technology into a brand specific 3D head–up display (HUD) for consumer use. On July 5, 2017, Zecotek announced that it had signed a joint development agreement with one of Europe's leading automobile companies. Zecotek's 3D HUD technology is attractive to leading auto manufactures because it is compact, does not require eye tracking and provides a deeper field of view than existing HUD displays as well as a platform for rich content.

“We have signed the necessary documentation with yet another leading European auto manufacturer to openly discuss the details of integration of our 3D display technology into its high–end luxury cars,” said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc. “Our 3D display platform offers each manufacturing partner the ability to design, build and install their own unique, content rich HUD unit. In such a very competitive landscape, we are pleased that our patented 3D technology has attracted two world–class automakers. We are currently working with both manufacturers and expect to deliver the first 3D–HD–HUD display systems in the second half of 2018.”

Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and other luxury auto brands have integrated HUD units in their higher–end vehicles and are looking for new technologies to expand the capabilities and affordability of the HUD platform. Zecotek's new 3D–HD–HUD platform offers superior attributes when compared to existing technologies. In 2015 the automotive HUD industry was worth approximately US$411.5 million with over 1.2 million units sold. The market is projected to grow at CAGR of approximately 22% through 2021 and be valued at over US$1.3 billion, with German automakers experiencing the greatest adoption integration of HUD products (Markets & Markets).

Zecotek's 3D HUD display system will not require eye tracking due to having 90 views which are simultaneously projected into the viewing zone, each corresponding to a particular view point within that zone. The resulting screen allow the driver or passenger to see a true 3D image as viewed from the chosen point anywhere within that viewing zone. 90 views also allow for the driver and the passenger to see their own unique images from their own perspective (e.g. an object left side seen by an observer standing to the left of the centre and the object's right side seen simultaneously by another observer standing to the right).

Zecotek's 3D scientific team has been working with European automobile companies for several months, and integration of the Company's patented 3D display technology is underway for HUDs.

With glasses–free 3D technology, next–generation HUD units offer the possibility of full 3D effects, projecting the images seen by drivers at safer distances from the windshield therefore causing less distraction. Richer content could be displayed along with navigation and telemetry. With Zecotek's 3D technology and the natural parallax effect, augmented reality HUD units would be far more effective.
