Montreal – TheNewswire –  April 13, 2022– Stellar AfricaGold Inc., (TSXV:SPX), (OTC:STLXF), (TGAT:6YP1) and (FSX:6YP1) (“Stellar ” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce more encouraging results from its trenching program at the Tichka Est Gold Project’s newly discovered Zone C confirming gold mineralized continuity and significant gold grades over more than 1 kilometer and still open along strike, and bringing the total mineralized strike of Zones A, B and C to over 2,200 strike meters.

 

The Zone C Gold Discovery

 

Following-up on a strong stream sediments gold anomaly announced February 2, 2022 Stellar has discovered a third gold mineralized structure at Tichka Est. This new Zone C is oriented east-west and is located to the east of Zone B.   A Phase 1 hand tools trenching program at Zone C yielded substantial gold grades on a strike length of over one kilometer with mineralized widths of up to 7 meters including 5.81 g/t Au over 4 meters (see Figure 1 below).

 

Significant assay results of Phase I trenching:

 

Trench C1:        3.58 g/t Au over 2 meters

Trench C2         5.81 g/t Au over 4 meters

Trench C3         3.14 g/t Au over 4 meters

Trench C4         5.66 g/t Au over 1 meter and 0.92 g/t Au over 7 meters

Trench C5         0.88 g/t Au over 2 meters, scree area

 

Phase 2 Trenching Program

 

The second phase of hand tool infill trenching was designed to confirm the continuity of the mineralized structure and, if successful, to warrant incorporating Zone C in the planned drilling campaign. It is expected that drilling will be initiated once the Tichka Est access road is completed and drill pads aligned for best intercepts of the 3 structures are positioned along the three zones.

 

Significant assay results of Phase 2 trenching:

 

Trench C7:        3.18 g/t Au over 4 meters

Trench C8         trench abandoned due to scree overburden, no results.

Trench C9         2.60 g/t Au over 3 meters

Trench C10         2.55 g/t Au over 3 meters  

Trench C11         1.55 g/t Au over 5 meters

Trench C12         2.06 g/t Au over 3 meters

   

Phase 2 Trenching Confirms Zone C Continuity and Grades

 

The Phase 2 trenching program has confirmed the continuity and grades of Zone C over a strike length of more than 1 kilometer. Zone C is an EW striking quartz-Ankerite-sulphides structure with apparent sulfides, pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite and iron oxide hosted in a very broken and deformed schist unit. This newly discovered Zone C adds more than 1,000 strike meters of gold mineralization to the already announced 1,200 strike meters of Structures A and B together for a combined total of over 2,200 strike meters. This important new structure remains open to the East and at depth.

Technical Information and Quality Control/Quality Assurance Notes

The trenches were excavated across the Zone C using hand tools to an average depth of 1.5 metres. The trenches were mapped at a scale of 1:100 and channeled sampled at 1 metre intervals using a mechanical rock saw for a better sample accuracy as recommended in Stellar’s Technical Report of November 15, 2020.

 

Sample collection was by two experienced senior local geologists under the supervision of Yassine Belkabir, Stellar’s Director in Morocco and by Dr. Ali Saquaque, Stellar’s Technical Advisor for Africa. The samples were bagged at the sampling site and stored in safe areas until being transported to African Laboratory for Mining and Environment (“Afrilab”) in Marrakech for analysis.

 

A total of 128 samples were sent to the lab for this program including 4 standards, 4 duplicates and 4 blanks samples that were added to the batch for the purpose of quality control, and all were well within the acceptable limit. The blank sample values were all below the detection limit for gold.

 

About Tichka Est Project

 

The Tichka Est gold project, comprising seven permits aggregating 82 square kilometres, is in the High Atlas Mountain region of Morocco approximately 80 kilometres south-southwest of Marrakech, a region easily accessible by road. The area is accessible year-round by road via a national and regional road to the village of Analghi located near the mineralized gold zone. Follow-up on some strong stream sediment anomalies reported by ONHYM lead Stellar to the discovery of 2 extensive gold mineralized structures designated Zones A and B. The new Zone C was discovered by Stellar after its own successful 2022 stream sediments program and follow-up prospecting and trenching.
