For3KEL Target - Diamond Drilling
As foreshadowed in the September Quarterly Activities Report (ASX: 29 October 2021), diamond drilling has now commenced at the 3KEL Target to continue to expand the large strike of the strong tin-coppermineralisation intercepted in the recent phase of RC and diamond drilling completed by SKY in August 2021.
A program of at least six holes has been planned and will aim to continue expanding the strike and depth extents of the mineralisation. The first hole to be drilled will target a 500m strike extension of the 3KEL mineralisation to the northeast where recent work by SKY has discovered gossanous outcrop, with rock chips returning assays of +0.5% Sn, this hole will be the first hole drilled within 500m of these rock chips and represents the possibility of a large strike extension to the tin mineralisation at 3KEL.
SKY METALS LIMITED
The 3KEL Target is a large-scale tin-coppersystem which remains open at depth and along strike for over 2km.
Diamond drilling has commenced to define the scale and intensity of the 3KEL Tin- Copper system.
32m @ 0.42% Sn & 0.1% Cu from 66m including, 9m @ 0.99% Sn & 0.31% Cu from 81m
37m @ 0.31% Sn from 91m including,
1m @ 4.23% Sn & 0.20% Cu from 121m
6m @ 1.11% Sn & 1.48% Cu from 105m
Drilling commenced at the 3KEL Target to follow up high-valueintercepts in the previous drilling, including:

Diamond drillholes are also planned to test depth extents to the high-grade tin mineralisation intercepted in 3KRCD007 and 3KRC012. Additionally, drillholes 3KRC005, 6 and 8 will be redrilled in this program as these holes failed reach the target depth in the previous program due to poor drilling conditions.
A hole is planned to further extend the strike to the southwest and test under a previous high-grade tin intercept from onlyhistoric aircore drilling which intercepted 42m @ 1.46% Sn from 0m (3KAC020), this hole is over 200m from any previous
drilling by SKY and aims to further increase the strike at 3KEL. A large diameter hole is planned to be drilled in the vicinity of 3KRCD007 to provide sample for further metallurgical test work over the next few months.
This program will test the 3KEL Target over a strike length of 2.2km and to a shallow depth of 150m. However, the rock chips collected by SKY and historic shallow drilling along with SKY's deeper drilling indicate the 3KEL Target will remain open along strike and down plunge. Securing an additional drill rig for ongoing drilling is being planned to continue to explore the
SKY Exploration Manager Oliver Davies commented "SKY is very optimistic that this program will continue to grow the already exceptionally large 3KEL Target. The shallow drilling by past explorers and the rock chips collected by SKY strongly indicate that this target extends even further along strike and down plunge than already established. This gives SKY confidence that further drilling will continue to grow and expand the high-gradetin-copper mineralisation now confirmed at 3KEL."

SKY has been granted two exploration licences in the New England Orogen covering areas of significant historical tin production - Emmaville & Gilgai. These areas were selected as they were considered to have considerable potential to host hardrock tin resource and limited modern day exploration has been conducted.
NEW ENGLAND project (El9200 & 9210, 100% SKY)
The Doradilla Project is located ~ 30km south of Bourke in north-westernNSW and represents a large and strategic tin project with excellent potential for associated polymetallic mineralisation (tin, tungsten, copper, bismuth, indium, nickel, cobalt, gold).
Doradilla Project (EL6258, 100% SKY)
The Tallebung Project is located ~70km north-westof Condobolin in central NSW. The project encompasses the historic Tallebung Tin Mining Field at the northern extent of the Wagga Tin Belt within the central Lachlan Orogen and is considered prospective for lode and porphyry- style tin - tungsten mineralisation.
Tallebung Project (EL6699, 100% SKY)
The Iron Duke project is located ~10km south-eastof Tottenham in central NSW. High grade copper-goldmineralisation has been intersected by previous explorers (e.g. 13m @ 1.56% Cu & 4.48g/t Au) and the mineralisation is open down dip to and to the south.

ABOUT SKY (ASX: SKY)
SKY is an ASX listed public company focused on the exploration and development of high value mineral resources in Australia. SKY's project portfolio offers exposure to the tin, gold, and copper markets in the world class mining jurisdiction of NSW.
onlyCULLARIN / KANGIARA projects (EL7954; EL8400 & EL8573, HRR farm-in)
Under the HRR farm-in, SKY has now earned an 80% interest in the projects via the expenditure of $2M prior to the formation of a joint venture (ASX: 9 October 2019). Highlight, 'McPhillamys-style' gold results from previous drilling at the Cullarin Project include 148.4m @ 0.97 g/t Au (WL31) including 14.6m @ 5.1 g/t Au from 16.2m, & 142.1m @ 0.89 g/t Au (WL28) including 12m @ 4.4 g/t Au from 25.9m. The Cullarin Project contains equivalent host stratigraphy to the McPhillamys deposit with a similar geochemical, geophysical & alteration signature. SKY's maiden drill program was very successful including core hole HUD002 which returned 93m @ 4.2 g/t Au from 56m.
CALEDONIAN / TIRRANA PROJECTS ( EL8920, EL9048, EL9120 100% SKY)
Highlight, 'McPhillamys-style' gold results from previous exploration include 36m @ 1.2 g/t Au from 0m to EOH in drillhole LM2 and 81m use@ 0.87g/t Au in a costean on EL8920 at the Caledonian Project. The distribution of multiple historic drill intersections indicates a potentially large gold zone with discrete high-grade zones, e.g. 6m @ 8g /t Au recorded from lode at historic Caledonian Mines (GSNSW).
A strong, robust soil gold anomaly (600 x 100m @ +0.1ppm) occurs and most drillholes (depth ~25m) terminate in the mineralised zone.
COPPER GOLD PROJECTS
GALWADGERE (EL6320, 100% SKY)
The Galwadgere project is located ~15km south-east of Wellington in central NSW. High grade copper-gold mineralisation has been
intersected by previous explorers (e.g. 47m @ 0.90% Cu & 1.58g/t Au) and the mineralisation is open along strike and at depth. personalFor
