    NEW GOLD AND COPPER ASSAYS RESULT IN TARGETING TWO ADDITIONAL ZONES FOR DRILLING ON THE COUNTY GALWAY, IRELAND PROJECT

    February 27th, 2018, Vancouver, BC, Canada – BTU METALS CORP. (“BTU” or the “Company”) (BTU-TSX:V) announces further encouraging assays in gold, silver and copper from the Galway Project, Ireland, resulting in two new drill target zones being defined.

    The BTU Exploration Team has received assay results of samples collected on the recent field trip to Galway.  The samples were processed at the lab of ALS Loughrea, Co. Galway, Ireland and results confirmed high grade samples in two critical areas, Glenlusk and the Escarpment area to the East of Glenlusk.

    These results supplement the primary target area at Lee resulting in the Company’s second and third target areas for drilling in the 160 km2 Galway property. The Lee target has an exposed vein with historic grab samples from both bedrock and float range from 2.1g/t up to 66.4 g/t Au (this high grade sample with 247 g/t Ag and 0.85% Pb) and an interpreted multi-vein structure based on ground and air geophysics. Note: selected samples including grab and float samples are not be representative of the mineralization hosted on the property. See 15 Feb 2018 news release for more on the Lee target.

    “The success we are having at now generating both precious and base metal targets to date is giving us growing confidence in our planned upcoming drill program at Galway,” stated BTU CEO Paul Wood. “It is exciting to note that the Dalradian supergroup of rocks that is prevalent on our property is also the host of the numerous veins of the Curraghinalt deposit being worked by Dalradian Resources Inc. (DNA – TSXV) also in Ireland.”

    Glenlusk has yielded historic samples of 10.1 g/t Au in pyrite veinlets, and 5 g/t Au in massive pyrite with minor quartz. With supporting float and in situ sample results, Glenlusk has been confirmed as a second drill target area for the upcoming program.

    An historical metallurgical test site about 4 km to the east of Glenlusk in the Escarpment Prospect area returned grab sample results taken by BTU in 2017 of 26 g/t Au and 3.7% copper. Furthermore, historic work by Westland Exploration in 1988 achieved drill results of 15.2 g/t Au over 1.5m, 6.2 g/t over 4.2m and 7.8 g/t over 2.7m. The original Westland channel sample assayed 11.2 g/t over 1.7m. This prospect will be BTU’s third drill target area.

    All samples were collected and then transported to the ALS lab at Loughrea, Co. Galway, where they were prepared and analyzed. There, the samples were crushed to 70 % < 2mm and split riffled and then pulverized 1000g < 75 um. Then 50g samples were then assayed by fire assay with an AA finish. No blanks or standards were included with the sample batch.
