VANCOUVER, BC: Group Eleven Resources Corp. (TSXV: ZNG) (OTC: GRLVF) (FRA: 3GE) (Group Eleven or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling at the Carrickittle zinc prospect (Carrickittle) on the Company's 100%-interest PG West project (PG West) in the Republic of Ireland.

Highlights
Drill program at Carrickittle consists of approximately 20 holes totalling 1,200 metres
Phase 1 of the drill program commenced on September 29th and consists of six holes and 600 metres
Phase 1 drilling will focus on Zone 1 of the Carrickittle prospect, testing the immediate extensions of the high-grade zone announced on July 6th, 2020 (10.3 metres of 14.6% zinc and 5.0% lead, or 19.6% combined, and 43 g/t silver in hole G11-2840-04)

We are excited to commence follow-up drilling at Carrickittle and look forward to updating the market as soon as results are ready and compiled during the next couple of months, stated Bart Jaworski, CEO. The Limerick basin is proving to be a very prospective zinc-lead camp and we look forward to progressing exploration in the near-term, especially along the emerging Pallas Green Corridor.

PG West Zinc Project, Ireland

The Carrickittle prospect is located within the 100%-owned PG West project, in south-western Ireland (see Exhibit 1). PG West is situated within the Limerick basin, a geological feature which also hosts the Company's contiguous 76.56%-owned Stonepark project and Glencore's adjacent Pallas Green project (containing the Pallas Green zinc-lead deposit1).

Carrickittle Drill Program

Initial follow-up drilling at Carrickittle will consist of approximately 20 holes totalling 1,200 metres. Phase 1 of this program, consisting of six holes and 600 metres, was permitted a short time ago and commenced on September 29th. Based on the results of Phase 1, the Phase 2 drill program will be further refined and permit applications will be submitted to the regulators. The start of Phase 2 (for the remaining 600 metres) is anticipated before year-end.

The Phase 1 drill program will focus on Zone 1 of the Carrickittle prospect, testing the immediate extensions of the high-grade zone announced on July 6th, 2020 (10.3 metres of 14.6% zinc and 5.0% lead, or 19.6% combined, and 43 g/t silver in hole G11-2840-04). Specifically, the key aim of Phase 1 is to determine the lateral and dip extent of the newly discovered massive sulphide body and to ascertain its true strike and dip direction. Also key will be identifying zinc-lead grade variability, any copper-silver enrichment zones and the location of any potential feeder structures. The above information will be integrated into the Company's exploration strategy and design on Zones 2, 3 and 4 at Carrickittle and the >1 kilometre strike extent which remains open to the north.
