Parallel Mining Conducting Due Diligence on Ethiopian Projects

Vancouver, British Columbia – Parallel Mining Corp. (TSX-V: PAL) (the “Company” or “Parallel”) announces that it is investigating mineral exploration opportunities in northern Ethiopia. The Company believes the greenstone belts of the Nubian Shield, which run through the region, have the geological potential to host mineral deposits similar to the Bisha Mine across the border in Eritrea which was recently purchased by Zijin Mining Group in their ~$1.2 billion takeover of Nevsun Resources.

In support of Parallel’s efforts, the Government of National Regional State of Tigray, Mines and Energy Agency has issued an official letter instructing all district Mines and Energy branches to provide full support to the Company in their efforts to conduct due diligence and acquire exploration licenses.

John Anderson, President and CEO, stated: “We have identified Ethiopia as an area with tremendous potential for mineral wealth, but very little modern exploration work getting done. The government has recognized the need for foreign investment and expertise in their mining space and have been very welcoming in our initial activities there. Seeing companies such as Newmont Goldcorp establishing themselves in the same region is very encouraging for us, and suggests that we are turning our eye to a highly prospective area.”

Parallel Mining Receives Assays From Drilling at Mane II

Vancouver, British Columbia – Parallel Mining Corp. (TSX-V: PAL) (the “Company” or “Parallel”) announces that assay results have been received from the recent drilling program designed to test one of the areas of Mane II, the Company’s 163 square kilometer optioned concession in the Kaya-Goran greenstone belt in central Burkina Faso, approximately 20 kilometers south of Nordgold’s Bissa Gold Mine.

In total, 732 meters in 10 reverse circulation holes were drilled in the southwestern part of the property to test whether high grade gold mineralization at surface extends at depth. Historical results from artisanal reject material, sampled and reported by High River Gold, include gold grades of 20.0 grams per tonne (“gpt”) and 11.2 gpt. In 2017, Parallel Mining conducted a small grab sample program (27 samples) on the artisanal reject material and results included 16.7 gpt, 12.5 gpt, 7.9 gpt, 6.3 gpt, and 6.0 gpt.

The quartz vein being exploited by the artisanal workers hosted in a felsic intrusive (granite), and Evidence of this veining was noted in most of the drill holes although gold values fluctuated. Significant values from this drilling include:

“We are excited by the hit ratio of the drill holes in this program. This is still early exploration for Parallel on the Mane II property, so seeing the continued evidence of gold like this is exceptionally encouraging.” Commented John Anderson, President and CEO “We look forward to doing further work on this concession, both at this target and at the other zones of interest.”

Robert Sibthorpe Wins Prestigious Award for His Work in Burkina Faso

Vancouver, British Columbia, December 11, 2017 – Parallel Mining Corp. (TSX-V: PAL) (the “Company” or “Parallel”) congratulates Bob Sibthorpe, VP, Exploration, on receiving the prestigious Colin Spence Award for excellence in global mineral exploration from the Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia (“AME BC”).

AME BC’s Colin Spence award recognizes individuals who have made a significant contribution to enhance mineral resources through the original application of prospecting techniques or other geoscience technology.

The award to Mr. Sibthorpe recognizes his role in the discovery of the Yaramoko deposit in Burkina Faso, where he pioneered the model for previously unidentified high-grade discoveries in the country.

The Company believes that exploration for similar high-grade deposits in Burkina Faso has been limited since the discovery of Yaramoko. Parallel intends to follow Mr. Sibthorpe’s model as the blueprint to find other such deposits in the region.

Mr. Sibthorpe will officially receive the award at AME BC’s Celebration of Excellence on January 24, 2018, during the annual Mineral Exploration Roundup conference in Vancouver, Canada.

About the Company Parallel holds the right to earn a 100% interest in the Sebe Property in the Hounde Greenstone Belt. The Sebe Property is located between the producing gold deposits Hounde and South Hounde operated by Endeavour Mining and Acacia Mining respectively.

Parallel also has an option to earn a 100% interest in the 165.7 square kilometer Garsay exploration permit in a highly prospective greenstone gold belt located in northwest Burkina Faso, 60 kilometers southeast of the producing Inata Gold Mine and Souma deposit
