WAM Deck March_2023_reduced.pdf

Western Alaska Minerals is focused on advancing its 100% owned "Illinois Creek Mining District" (>73,000 acres) which contains targets originally discovered by Anaconda Minerals in the 1980s and was consolidated by the WAM management team over the past 10 years. The portfolio of five, high-grade, evolving mineral projects contain: gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc including a silver-rich Carbonate Replacement Deposit (CRD) and a NI 43-101 oxide gold resource at the Illinois Creek deposit. Our board, management, and technical teams have track records exploring and progressing Tier 1 assets in Alaska including Donlin Creek, Greens Creek, and Bornite. The company’s first-pass drill program at the Waterpump Creek (“WPC”) CRD target in 2021 intersected 9.1m (true thickness) @ 526 g/t Ag, 22.5% Zn & 14.4% Pb (1,886 g/t AgEq). WAM's 2022 drilling season continually intersected more bonanza-grade mineralization at Waterpump Creek, expanding the mineralized strike from 50m to 400m long.

Forward Looking Statements
This presentation contains numerous forward-looking statements relating to Western Alaska Minerals Corp.’s exploration and potential mining business, including estimated production data,
expected production and operating schedules, results of operations, reserves and resources, expected capital costs, mine plans, mine lives, other expected operating data, permitting and other
regulatory approvals. Such forward-looking statements are identified by the use of words such as “believes,” “intends,” “expects,” “hopes,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “plan,” “projected,”
“contemplates,” “anticipates”, “estimates”, “potential”, “likely” or similar words. Actual production, operating schedules, results of operations, reserves and resources, capital costs, mine plans,
mine lives, permitting and regulatory approvals could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. The factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from
those in the forward-looking statements include: (i) the risk factors set forth in Western Alaska Minerals Corp.’s disclosures; (ii) risks and hazards inherent in the mining business (including risks
inherent in discovering and developing large-scale mining projects, environmental hazards, industrial accidents, weather or geologically related conditions); (iii) changes in the market prices of
gold, copper and silver and a sustained lower price environment; comparative valuations to peer exploration stage companies; (iv) uncertainties inherent in Western Alaska Minerals Corp.’s
production, exploratory and developmental activities, including risks relating to permitting and regulatory delays, ground condition and grade variability; (v) any future labor disputes or work
stoppages; (vi) uncertainties inherent in the estimation of mineral resources and reserves and future production; (vii) changes that could result from Western Alaska Minerals ’s future acquisition
of new mining properties or businesses; (viii) reliance on third parties to operate certain mines where Western Alaska Minerals Corp. owns mineral production and; (ix) the absence of control over
mining operations in which the Company or any of its subsidiaries holds royalty or streaming interests and risks related to these mining operations (including results of mining and exploration
activities, environmental, economic and political risks and changes in mine plans and project parameters); (x) the loss of any third-party smelter to which Western Alaska Minerals Corp. markets
copper, silver and gold; (xi) effects of environmental and other governmental regulations; (xii) risks inherent in the ownership or operation of or investment in mining properties or businesses in
foreign countries; and (xiii) Western Alaska Minerals Corp.’s possible inability to raise additional financing necessary to conduct its business, make payments or refinance its debt. Readers are
cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Western Alaska Minerals Corp. disclaims any intent or obligation to update publicly these forward-looking statements, whether
as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

*The purpose of the Proportional Shares is to allow the
Company to qualify as a foreign private issuer under United
States securities laws. Each proportional share is convertible
to 100 common shares at the request of the shareholder and
in the discretion of the Company. Because of these
conversion rights, for market capitalization and financial
analysis purposes, it is appropriate to convert the
proportional shares to common shares and add the product
of the conversion (approximately 23,900,000 shares) to the
current number of common shares outstanding. Further
information regarding the Company’s share structure is
available upon request.

  • 22. CRD Characteristics 22 • Carbonate-hosted, intrusion-related, high-temp (>250°), multiphase, zoned polymetallic deposits formed as a consequence of direct continuous replacement of limestones or dolomites - Can be part of continuum into Zn-rich skarns and porphyries • Fluid pathways are characterized by lateral replacement of selective beds (mantos) or as structural cross cutting bodies (chimneys) • Critical ore controls Transport • Cl-complexed metal transport in acidic highly saline fluids Deposition 1. Acid neutralization of highly acidic saline fluids which are self stoping due to the volumetric decrease during dissolution 2. Falling temperature (which imparts classic porphyry zonation Au, Cu, Zn, Pb, Ag, Mn.) 3. Closed systems exhibit very gradual temperature gradients – continuous deposition reaching kms in length
  • 23. CRD Exploration Implications 23 Acid neutralization gradient results in very sharply bounded ore bodies on the margins but very elongate ore bodies down the axis of transport depending on the continuous supply of new fluid. This continuity of fluid is imparted by the volume reduction of the carbonates as they are consumed and replaced – the systems self-stope. “Rods/Tubes” of mineralization with leakage along particularly susceptible bedding planes or small structures. More complexity/phases and pulses are evident in the direction of the fluid source but very little lateral evidence of the fluids in order to vector – lots of near misses in drilling.
