Nippon Dragon Resources will use DIAGNOS’s Artificial Intelligence tools to optimize exploration of its Rocmec 1 and Denain properties

Brossard, Quebec, January 24th, 2017 Nippon Dragon Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Nippon") (TSX-V Symbol: NIP) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with Diagnos inc., a leader in applying Artificial Intelligence in data mining technical services, for use of its CARDS software (Computer Aided Resource Detection Software) to generate mining targets on Nippon’s Rocmec 1 and Denain properties. This powerful exploration tool will make it possible to compile all the data with those of neighboring regions to produce precise exploration targets. The agreement totals $70,000 and will serve as a guide for our future drilling programmes.

"These reports will help the company better understand both deposits and will enable Nippon to provide specific targets for future exploration and thus increase its resources by focusing on these targets in our next diamond drilling campaign. New mining technologies such as Diagnos’s CARDS and Nippon’s Thermal Fragmentation mining method, make it possible to stand out and provide significant cost savings', stated Donald Brisebois, Nippon’s President and CEO
