December 21, 2020
Vancouver, British Columbia - (Newsfile Corp. - December 21, 2020) - Valterra Resource Corporation ("Valterra") reports that it has granted incentive stock options to directors, officers and consultants to purchase an aggregate 4,550,000 common shares.

Update of the Livramento Gold Project, Brazil
The recently announced 5,000-tonne bulk-sampling/trial-processing program and the exploration- trenching program are progressing at the Livramento Gold Project (see NR-11-20, October 13, 2020). Data from the bulk-sampling program will evaluate grade and metallurgical features of known mineralization, while the exploration-trenching program will explore for new, near-surface gold-bearing material as potential mill feed.
The Livramento mill was fully refurbished over the past few weeks and now is running in accordance with manufacturer specifications. A second ball mill is on site and planned for installation at the mill in January to increase throughput at the mill, and additional digging and hauling equipment is being phased into the sampling program to increase efficiency in providing material to the mill for trial processing. A series of pushbacks to expose new material for bulk sampling has been completed in pits previously mined.
Additional gold-bearing material was uncovered during the pushback, based on panning, and the significance of the newly uncovered material is being evaluated.
Valterra is a Manex Resource Group Company. The group provides expertise in exploration, administration, and corporate development services for Valterra's mineral properties located in Brazil, British Columbia and Mexico.

Upon acquisition of Pocone Mining Mineracao Ltda, Valterra will indirectly hold a 100% interest in the Lima Gold Project and an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Livramento Gold Project, both located in Brazil.
