TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 9, 2021 / Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or the "Company") (CSE:NWI) today announced an eighth successive intersection of 100m or more of Critical Elements and phosphate mineralization at its 100%-owned Prairie Lake project near Terrace Bay, Ontario with the receipt of analyses producing a 122.7m intersection in DDH NP0807.

"The ongoing drill core sampling program (the "Program") at Prairie Lake continues to produce exceptional mineralized widths that are defining a very extensive domain of much sought-after rare earth elements, niobium, tantalum and phosphate," said Paul Jones, Nuinsco's CEO. "Our intent is to use the results from the Program to upgrade the existing Exploration Target ("ET") to a resource in the near term."

The mineralization of economic interest contained within the Prairie Lake intrusion occurs at surface and extends to unknown depths below the deepest drilling conducted to date (circa 500m vertically). There is no indication that mineralization diminishes with depth and the eight intersections from the Program reported to date occur over an interval of 530m, oriented southeast-northwest, in the Southwest ("SW") Area (see map below). The Prairie Lake complex hosts a suite of elements of economic interest identified as Critical Elements defined under the Canadian Minerals and Metals Plan ("CMMP") contained within the very large domain of mineralized rock that is extremely favourably located from a logistical perspective with rail, road, shipping, and power infrastructure already established. Prairie Lake hosts a number of elements and compounds of economic interest including those for which demand is projected to substantially increase and for which secure supply chains are sought.

Analytical results from the 122.7 metres of continuous mineralization (from 2.3-125m) of niobium (Nb), tantalum (Ta), phosphate (P2O5), and rare earth elements (REE) including lanthanum (La), cerium (Ce), samarium (Sm), neodymium (Nd) and yttrium (Y) - analytical results are tabulated below. Eighteen drill-holes have been sampled to date as part of the Program, focussing on drill-holes collared to intercept the SW area which measures 1km in length and is between 150m and 750m wide at surface. The SW area alone hosts 435-530 million tonnes of the total 515-630 million tonne ET, with grades as tabulated in the "Prairie Lake ET" table below.

The Prairie Lake project consists of 46 mineral claims covering an area of ~630 ha. Prairie Lake is superbly located, easily accessed by an all-weather road from the TransCanada Highway located 28 kilometres to the south. The ET is defined by 59 diamond drill holes.

All samples were analysed by Activation Laboratories (ActLabs) in Ancaster, Ontario. Samples were analysed for a whole rock and trace element ICP analytical package as well as for niobium, tantalum, and zirconium oxides using a fusion XRF method. An internal Quality Control Quality Assurance (QAQC) program was implemented with four QAQC samples (blanks and reference standards) added into the sampling stream.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2021 / Core Assets Corp., ("Core Assets" or the "Company") (CSE:CC)(Frankfurt:5RJ)(WKN:A2QCCU)(OTCQB:CCOOF)…

Share this article:

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2021 / Core Assets Corp., ("Core Assets" or the "Company") (CSE:CC)(Frankfurt:5RJ)(WKN:A2QCCU)(OTCQB:CCOOF) is pleased to announce that it has received geochemical confirmation that its phase 1 sampling program (the "program") identified multiple new zones of intense carbonate replacement sulphide mineralization and a extensive Zinc-Lead-Silver rich manto at the Blue Property (the "Property") located in the Atlin Mining District of British Columbia.

Highlights

  • The phase 1 sampling program was designed to determine the extent of visually interpreted massive sulphide carbonate replacement mineralization seen at surface.
  • The program consisted of the collection of 247 grab samples.

Highlights Include:

  • 91 samples returned assay values from 0.20% to 9.92% Cu, with 10 samples returning >1.04% Cu.
  • 58 samples returned assay values from 110 g/t to 2,020 g/t Ag with 17 samples returning >417 g/t Ag.
  • 115 samples returned assay values from 1.04% to >30% Zn, with 41 of those samples returning >10.15% Zn.
  • 53 samples returned assay values from 1.01% to >20% Pb with 33 samples returning >5.59% Pb.
  • 9 samples returned assay values from 1.03 to 6.75 g/t Au.
  • Select assays from 43 samples are provided in Table 1 below, full results and supplementary information can be found on the company website at the following link: https://coreassetscorp.com/site/assets/files/5681/all_assays.pdf
  • A channel sampling program has been conducted to further determine mineralization dimensions and concentrations at surface.
  • Confirmation and extension of the historically identified Jackie Showing carbonate replacement mineralization with 57 outcrop samples collected returning average values of 0.26% Cu, 170.4 g/t Ag, 3.96% Pb and 5.02% Zn. One sample assayed 2.0% Cu, 1,090 g/t Ag, 5.73% Zn and >20% Pb.
  • Discovery of three new heavily mineralized zones 2 to 2.5km northwest of the Jackie Showing:
    • Grizzly Showing: Two sub-parallel Zn-Pb-Ag-Cu rich interpreted carbonate replacement manto zones were discovered and sampled over a strike length of 500m, withwidths up to 5m. Assay values from 44 samples returned averages of 8.2% Zn, 1.8% Pb, 0.40% Cu and 110 g/t Ag. Mineralization remains open in both directions along strike and at depth (see annotated photo 3 below).
    • Sulphide City Showing: Zn-Cu mineralization with multiple semi-massive to massive sulphide exposures containing significant sphalerite, pyrite, pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite. Assay values from 44 samples returned average values of 0.29% Cu, 3.03% Zn and 14.97 g/t Ag.
    • Amp Showing: Carbonate replacement semi massive to massive sulphide mineralization and numerous float samples with 20 samples collected returning averages of 218 g/t Ag, 4.1% Pb, 3.8% Zn and 0.63 g/t Au.
  • Discovery of massive sulphide mineralization in outcrop during reconnaissance prospecting on western side of Willison Glacier significantly expanding mineralization extent at the Blue Property. Core Assets has now confirmed a mineralized and altered area of approximately 6.6km by 1.8km with alteration assemblages indicating this is formed from a porphyry source.
  • Core Assets has mobilized a drone imagery team to provide high resolution imagery of the newly defined area.
  • VTEM and Phase 2 channel sampling program results are expected to be released by late 2021.
  • A Video News Release of today's announcement from Core Assets Corp. may be viewed here: https://youtu.be/EP6WNwawnsk

Core Assets' President and CEO Nick Rodway comments, "The abundance of newly discovered mineralized showings at the Blue Property is beyond exciting. We staked the Blue Property because it is one of few underexplored areas within the Stikine Terrane and has the geological characteristics to potentially produce a world class discovery. Our work during the 2021 field season has identified significant manto, CRD and skarn type mineralization within a large alteration footprint that exceeded our initial expectations. We are excited to continue to gather more information over the winter and continue to pave our road to discovery."

Jackie Showing

The historically sampled Ag-Pb-Zn-Cu Jackie showing was revisited by Core Assets and mineralization was confirmed at surface over a 400m x 450m area with mineralization open in all directions. Multiple new carbonate replacement massive sulphide occurrences were located and sampled in addition to verification sampling of mineralization noted by Carmac Resources in 1990. A total of 57 outcrop samples were collected from the Jackie Showing and select assay results are displayed in Table 1.

Grizzly Showing

The Grizzly Showing was discovered by Core Assets during the 2021 Phase 1 exploration program. The showing consists of two subparallel zones interpreted to be surface expressions of carbonate replacement mantos. Mineralization was sampled at surface from the westernmost exposure for a total of approximately 500m along strike, with widths up to 5m and open under heavy scree. The eastern zone was tracked for approximately 150m. Mineralization within each zone remains open in both directions along strike. A total of 43 outcrop samples and 1 float sample were collected at the Grizzly Showing. Select assay results are displayed in Table 1 below and an annotated photo of the area can also be found in Photo 3 below.

Sulphide City Showing

The Sulphide City showing was discovered during Core Assets Phase 1 exploration program. Multiple Zn-Cu-Fe rich massive sulphide exposures were identified within the showing with the largest mineralized outcrop measuring ~16m in length with widths up to 4.5m. The showing displays characteristics of both carbonate replacement and skarn mineralization at multiple locations and is proximal to a granodiorite intrusive body. A total of 43 outcrop samples and 1 float sample was collected from Sulphide City with select assay results displayed in Table 1.

Amp Showing

Semi massive to massive sulphide carbonate replacement mineralization at the Amp Showing was identified within several outcrops <1m in size and multiple bleeder veins. Additionally several highly mineralized float samples were collected in the area. A total of 12 outcrop and 8 float samples were collected and select assays are displayed in Table 1.

Property Wide Sampling

Results for property wide reconnaissance sampling executed by Core Assets during Phase 1 of its exploration program revealed the district scale potential of the Blue Property. Strong mineralization was identified in numerous locations across the Property and Core Assets has now confirmed carbonate replacement mineralization at surface over an area 6.6km x 1.8km. A total of 71 outcrop and 11 float samples were collected as part of the Property wide reconnaissance sampling and select assay results are displayed in Table 1. These results prompted the recent staking expansion of the Blue Property.

About the 2021 Phase 1 Field Program

The helicopter supported ground program was executed during the last two weeks of July, 2021. A crew of four geologists were based in Atlin, BC and utilized Discovery Helicopters for daily access to the Property. The program focused on verification sampling of historically documented mineralization at the Silver Lime Prospect as well as reconnaissance prospecting of the Company's newly staked ground to the west of the prospect (see Company news release dated June 11, 2021).

A total of 247 grab samples (see select samples in Table 1) were collected from the Property over the duration of the program. The historically mapped and sampled massive sulphide carbonate replacement occurrences were located and resampled at the Silver Lime Prospect. Multiple days were also spent traversing locations to the north and west of the Silver Lime Prospect in an attempt to locate additional massive sulphide carbonate replacement mineralization. Based on the carbonate replacement-porphyry model, mineralization should be continuous and zoned from a central porphyry source. Therefore, crews focused on extending mineralization of the carbonate replacement occurrences at the Silver Lime Prospect and searching for typical porphyry style alterations.

QA/QC and Sample Preparation

All rock samples were collected in the field using a hammer and chisel. Locations were obtained using a GPS and samples were placed in pre-labelled sample bags. Metal tags with the sample numbers scribed into them and flagging tape were left at each sample location. Samples were stored in 5-gallon pails in a secure location until ready for shipment. Quartz blanks were inserted approximately every 25 samples as part of QA/QC procedures. All rock samples and quartz blanks were shipped by ground to ALS Geochemistry in Whitehorse, YT for multielement analysis (including Ag) by four-acid digestion with ICP-AES instrumentation (package ME-ICP61) and Au, Pd, Pt by fire assay (package PGM-ICP27). Any overlimits for Ag, Cu, Pb and Zn will be analyzed using the applicable assay package ME-OG62. Ag values reporting >1000 ppm after additional analysis will be resubmitted for gravimetric fire assay (package Ag-GRA21). No certified reference materials were submitted for analysis with the Company relying on the laboratories internal QA/QC in this regard.

About the Blue Property

The Blue Property consists of two main historical mineral prospects (‘Laverdiere' and ‘Silver Lime') in a total contiguous land package of approximately 108,337 ha (~1,083 km²). The project is located 48 km southwest of the town of Atlin, British Columbia. In 2018, the Company sent a geological team to the Blue Property for preliminary surface sampling. Three areas of skarn exposure with massive and disseminated sulphide were observed along the western side of the Llewellyn Fault Zone, known as the Laverdiere Prospect. A total of 28 grab samples were collected and sent for analysis with values of up to 8.46% copper, 1.57 g/t gold and 46.5 g/t silver reported.

The Silver Lime Prospect is located just 10 km southwest of the Laverdiere Prospect, and encompasses two significant historical mineral occurrences, the Falcon and Jackie Showings. The Falcon Showing was discovered by Carmac Resources in 1990 and consists of several northwest trending limestone beds and the Jackie showing consists of a series of altered quartz veins. Mineralization often consists of galena, sphalerite, pyrite, chalcopyrite, arsenopyrite and stibnite. The system is exposed in multiple areas on the property with one more significant outcrop that is visible for 25 metres with strike extensions covered by talus. Individual mineralization can be seen up to 2.2 metres wide. To the northwest, a quartz-feldspar porphyry breccia contains smaller quartz veins with semi-massive arsenopyrite and stibnite. Sample 88339 taken from a 2.20 metre vein system assayed 3.3 g/t gold, 2,641 g/t silver, 0.15% copper, 2.5% lead and 3.32% zinc, 5.0% arsenic and 2.56% antimony (ARIS 21162*).

In 2018, Core Assets Corp., as part of a helicopter reconnaissance program, prospected the Silver Lime Prospect and collected 8 samples. The results confirmed the historic work of Carmac (1990), having returned values of 1.16 g/t gold, 913 g/t silver, 12.45% zinc and >20.0% lead.

The Silver Lime Prospect has the potential to represent a carbonate replacement deposit model (CRD). Massive sulphide mineralization occurs in limestone and biotite-muscovite-sericite schists near the contacts between the units. Large zones of limonite alteration, cut by alaskite and hornblende porphyry dikes, surround these occurrences. The lenses appear to be widest near the porphyry dikes. Several faults follow the general direction of the dikes, suggesting structural control on the mineralization. Sulphides at the Jackie Showing often comprise galena, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite and pyrite. The mineralization can be up to 30 metres long and 6 metres wide. The smaller occurrences host sphalerite and galena mineralization and the larger occurrences vary mineralogically along length. Galena, quartz and calcite dominate the northwest changing to pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and pyrite in the centre and border areas (Minfile 104M 031*).

The 2021 prospecting and sampling programs have focused on resampling the Silver Lime Prospect and evaluating the newly staked ground by Core Assets Corp. to the west of the prospect to better understand how the mineralization is zoned with regards to the source.

About Core Assets Corp.

Core Assets Corp. is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of mineral projects in British Columbia., Canada. The company currently holds 100% title ownership in the Blue Property, that covers a land area of ~108,337 Ha (~1,083 km²). The project lies within the Atlin Mining District, a well-known gold mining camp. The Property hosts a major structural feature known as The Llewellyn Fault Zone ("LFZ"). This structure is approximately 140km in length and runs from the Yukon border down through the property to the Alaskan Panhandle Juneau Ice Sheet in the United States. Core Assets believes that the south Atlin Lake area and the LFZ has been neglected since the last major exploration campaigns in the 1980's. The LFZ plays an important role in mineralization of near surface metal occurrences across the property. The past 50 years have seen substantial advancements in the understanding of porphyry, skarn, and carbonate replacement type deposits both globally and in BC's Golden Triangle. The company has leveraged this information at the Blue Property to tailor an already proven exploration model and believes this could facilitate a major discovery. Core Assets is excited to become one of Atlin Mining District's premier explorers where its team believes there are substantial opportunities for new discoveries and development in the area.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2021 / Gratomic Inc. ("Gratomic", "GRAT" or the "Company") (TSXV:GRAT)(OTCQX:CBULF)(Frankfurt:CB82) announces the commencement of wet commissioning (Stage C4), The Company has started running material through the crushing circuit in preparation of full commissioning of its Aukam processing plant. The entire Gratomic Executive team was present for this significant milestone and witnessed the equipment operating as it was engineered to perform.

The following is the detailed explanation of the C4 wet commissioning phase:

  • Check site-wide systems are fully operational
  • Confirm operator technicians trained and able to run commissioning
  • Check as-built document complete
  • Confirm Operations and Maintenance manuals available in draft form

"Our team at Aukam continues to excel," said Arno Brand, CEO & President, "The progress on the project advances at an exceptional rate and the Gratomic team has easily surmounted any potential obstacles that have arisen at the project over the previous months."

Assembly continues on the material thickener tank, see HERE for corresponding press release dated September 7th, 2021. The unit is currently going through its final assembly. Additionally, the Company has reduced its water cost by 50% through collaboration with local communities in the immediate Aukam area and water demand on site is currently fully met by supply. Upon completion, the plant will sustain over 1,000,000 liters of water storage. Included in this total is water storage, process water, and water recycling (as indicated in its press release dated November 9, 2020, Gratomic will recycle approximately 95% of the water in the system). See HERE to view the press release. This is sufficient storage to sustain operations once the plant is fully commissioned.

The plumbing, electrical and air compressor circuits for the three mixing tanks and vertical columns are currently under assembly. Once these components are installed, water will be introduced into these units for testing and calibration. The product thickener tank, which was assembled in April of 2021, will be filled to a 70% capacity in preparation for the next stage. The completion of the material thickener tank, the delivery of the twelve additional mixing tanks and nine additional flotation columns (see press release dated September 7th, 2021), will bring the flotation circuit into the final stage of C4 wet commissioning.

Final assembly of the plumbing and electrical circuits to the press filter are in the final connection phase. Conveyor B has been installed, with the catwalks and stairways completed. The custom-built material chipper and hopper has been completed and mounted above the rotary drier, which was installed and assembled in April of this year.

The crushing circuit has moved into the wet commissioning phase. From here, the circuit will undergo comprehensive calibration on all systems and will be fitted with custom enclosures to secure the preservation of graphite fines throughout the crushing process. The calibration phase is an extremely important step in the commissioning process, it requires ample time and attention to be carried out effectively to ensure optimal future performance of the cycle.

"The Gratomic team has been working very hard during the construction phases and is proud to have reached wet commissioning. This brings the Company into the forefront of the final transition from a junior exploration company into a development company," says Armando Farhate, COO & Head of Graphite Marketing and Sales.

Gratomic wishes to emphasize that no Preliminary Economic Analysis, Preliminary Feasibility Study or Feasibility Study has been completed to support any level of production. In fact, no mineral resources let alone mineral reserves demonstrating economic viability and technical feasibility, have been delineated on the Aukam property.

The Company is working towards completing a Preliminary Feasibility Study (PFS) on the Aukam Processing plant. The study, its recommendations, and their subsequent implementation, will provide conclusions and recommendation at a PFS level of comfort relating to the scale up of the existing processing plant to a commercial scale processing facility capable of producing the desired concentrate grades and production rates.

Gratomic wishes to emphasize that the supply of graphite is conditional on Gratomic being able to bring the Aukam project into a production phase, and for any graphite being produced to meet certain technical and mineralization requirements. Gratomic continues to move its business towards production and as part of its business plan, expects to file a National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects resource estimate in Q1 2022.

Risk Factors

No mineral resources, let alone mineral reserves demonstrating economic viability and technical feasibility, have been delineated on the Aukam Property. The Company is not in a position to demonstrate or disclose any capital and/or operating costs that may be associated with the processing plant until the PFS is completed.

The Company advises that it has not based its production decision on even the existence of mineral resources let alone on a PFS or feasibility study of mineral reserves, demonstrating economic and technical viability, and, as a result, there may be an increased uncertainty of achieving any particular level of recovery of minerals or the cost of such recovery, including increased risks associated with developing a commercially mineable deposit.

Historically, such projects have a much higher risk of economic and technical failure. There is no guarantee that production will begin as anticipated or at all or that anticipated production costs will be achieved.

Failure to commence production would have a material adverse impact on the Company's ability to generate revenue and cash flow to fund operations. Failure to achieve the anticipated production costs would have a material adverse impact on the Company's cash flow and future profitability.
