VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 15, 2021 / Pampa Metals Corp. ("Pampa Metals" or the "Company") (CSE:PM)(FSE:FIRA)(OTCQX:PMMCF) is pleased to provide an exploration update regarding its 7,600-hectare Cerro Buenos Aires Project in northern Chile, where the Company has completed the drilling of nine reverse circulation ("RC") holes totaling 2,738m focused on the Cerro Chiquitin area in the north of the property. Analytical results are pending. See previous news releases dated April 28, May 12, July 7, July 29 and August 3, 2021 for further technical information and updates.

Julian Bavin, CEO of Pampa Metals commented: "The area around Cerro Chiquitin, and to the south, currently shows highly encouraging indications of a porphyry system, with quartz veinlets in drill holes CBA-RC-07 and CBA-RC-08, quartz-sulfide veinlets and phyllic alteration in CBA-RC-02, together with the presence of a significant series of tourmaline breccia bodies and a hydrothermally altered dioritic-magmatic center. Drill hole evidence suggests that the drilling to the north of Cerro Chiquitin is at the periphery of the principal area of interest and reveals quartz veinlets in the pyritic, propylitic halo to the alteration system. Most of the area of interest to the south of Cerro Chiquitin is covered by 40m to 85m of post-mineral gravel cover where the underlying geology is not exposed. The core of the porphyry-related system may not have a footprint of more than 500m x 500m beneath the gravels, and further work is required to focus in on this target area, where sufficient space for a significant system remains untested."

Technical Summary

Three drill holes are located on the east flank of the small outcropping hill at Cerro Chiquitin (see maps at the end of this release), all of which were drilled with an inclination of 60 ° to the west to cut the base of the previously reported tourmaline breccia body exposed at Cerro Chiquitin.

  • Hole CBA-RC-01 cut discrete magmatic-hydrothermal breccia structures with a tourmaline matrix, which in turn cut a magnetite-rich metasomatic alteration in andesitic tuffs. The hole cut 56m of gravel cover and was abandoned at 386m due to technical problems with the drilling.
  • Holes CBA-RC-07 (384m) and CBA-RC-08 (470m) cut important sections of magmatic-hydrothermal breccia with a combination of tourmaline and quartz-tourmaline matrices, as well as segments of wide-spaced quartz veinlets in a fine grained dioritic porphyry, which is interpreted to be similar to a possible porphyry gold system. The host rocks comprise andesitic tuffs with contact metasomatism including pervasive fine biotite alteration, silicification and disseminated magnetite.

Two other holes were drilled south of the exposed breccias body.

  • Hole CBA-RC-02 (244m) cut phyllic alteration and a series of quartz-sulfide veinlets indicative of the epithermal-porphyry transition. This hole cut 64m of gravel cover and was abandoned due to technical problems with the drilling.
  • Hole CBA-RC-06 (324m) was drilled a little further south, and cut advanced argillic alteration, with evidence of an epithermal system, after penetrating 84m of gravel cover.

Four further holes were drilled to the north of Cerro Chiquitin, including CBA-RC-03 (240m), CBA-RC-04 (234m), CBA-RC-05 (240m) and CBA-RC-09 (216m), all of which cut peripheral hydrothermal alteration with quartz veinlets, pyrite and a transition to propylitic alteration with the presence of epidote.

The principal area of interest is located to the south of holes CBA-RC-07 and 08, and to the north and east of CBA-RC-02, where considerable space for a mineralised porphyry system exists. Detailed interpretations of magnetics data support this interpretation, with magnetic susceptibility depth slices showing a clear transition from near surface magnetite-destructive alteration (advanced argillic and phyllic) to deeper magnetite stable alteration (potassic), which may represent the mineralised porphyry core, and the focus of follow-up exploration work.

Pampa Metals is now awaiting the results of the chemical analyses of the RC drill hole chips to further help vector towards potential ore and to help decide the next steps for the project. Further work may include detailed IP survey lines to penetrate deeper than the current gradient array IP survey and to give better definition of IP features at depth, combined with further drill follow-up. 1,279 samples, most of which represent 2m intervals from the drilling, have been sent to the laboratory for analysis. This number includes control samples (blanks, duplicates, standards) that will allow for QA/QC control of the sampling, preparation, and analytical processes.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 20, 2021 / Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSXV:MARV)(Frankfurt:O4T1)(OTCQB:MARVF); ("Marvel" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its exploration plans on its Hope Brook Project which is strategically located contiguous to Sokoman - Benton Joint Venture, Falcon Gold and First Mining's ground which is optioned to Big Ridge Exploration. The company has filed initial permits for its first phase of exploration which includes high resolution magnetic gradiometry surveys, a proven method to sort the structural complexities in geological terranes. The Company will also be sending prospecting crews to the area to begin baseline prospecting to determine if the magnetic trends highlighted in regional government surveys are due to similar mineralized structures as those hosting the nearby Sokoman / Benton new Lithium discovery.

Figure 1. Location of Marvel's Hope Brook gold property contiguous to First Mining and the Sokoman-Benton joint venture.

Most recently, Sokoman/Benton made headlines announcing the first High Grade Discovery of Lithium bearing pegmatites at their Golden Hope project. It is important to note this discovery is less than 10 km away from our ground and appears to be the same structural corridor. The 35 grab and chip samples are noted in the Sokoman/Benton NR (September 16th 2021) were collected over a 2 km distance. Their sampling program confirmed the presence of lithium pegmatites, and the first significant occurrence of Lithium documented in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Karim Rayani Chief Executive Officer commented, "Marvel and our sister company Falcon Gold have made a lot of noise as of late not only in acquiring sizable land positions tied on to major structures but also following the structures to find what we believe are hidden gems that have been overlooked and passed by. Sokoman-Benton's new Lithium discovery is less than 10 km away and is a testament to our business model."

Marvel's Hope Brook 19,075 hectare property is hosted within the Exploits subzone of the central Newfoundland gold belt. The property covers extensions or is proximal to two major structures linked to significant gold prospects (Cape Ray; Matador Mining) and deposits (Hope Brook; First Mining) in southern Newfoundland. Rock lithologies and structures on the property are also related to those associated with Marathon Gold's Valentine gold deposits, Sokoman's Moosehead gold project and New Found Gold's Queensway gold project. Marvel's land position straddles both the eastern and western extents of recent land acquisitions by the Sokoman/Benton JV partnership, with Marvel now controlling areas of considerable structural complexity marked by large-scale fold and fault structures, which provide important structural controls (traps) for gold mineralization within this area.

Within this immediate area, the most significant deposit is the Hope Brook Gold Mine, which was in production from 1987 to 1997, producing 752,163 ounces of gold. The Hope Brook deposit is now owned by Coastal Gold Corp., which has outlined an additional 6.33 million tonnes at an average grade of 4.68 grams per tonne gold for 954,000 ounces of gold in the indicated and inferred categories.

Southern Silver Completes Final Payment to Acquire 100% Interest in the Cerro Las Minitas Silver Project

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 20, 2021) – Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSXV: SSV) (the "Company" or "Southern Silver")…

Share this article:

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 20, 2021) - Southern Silver Exploration Corp. (TSXV: SSV) (the "Company" or "Southern Silver") purchased a 60% indirect working interest in the Cerro Las Minitas project (the "CLM Project") located in Durango, Mexico from Electrum Global Holdings LP ("Electrum") in September 2020 subject to a security pledge. The Company has now made the final payment to Electrum of US$2 million and issued 7,971,878 common shares equal to US$2 million (based on the prior 20-day VWAP) and now holds a 100% interest in the CLM Project free of such security pledge. As consideration for the acquisition, Southern Silver has paid Electrum an aggregate US$15 million in a combination of cash and common shares.

Benefits to Southern Silver Shareholders:

  • Simplifies ownership structure of the CLM Project
  • Establishes full control over project timeline and removes perceived joint venture discount
  • Provides 100% ownership of a premier, polymetallic deposit in Mexico with substantial resource growth potential (with a focus on targeting high grade silver targets)
  • 150% increase in attributable resources to current resource of Indicated: 134Mozs AgEq and Inferred: 138Mozs AgEq (1)
  • Highly accretive to Southern Silver shareholders
  • Electrum remains a supportive cornerstone investor
  • Southern Silver becomes a more attractive takeover target
  • Enhances the market profile of the Company relative to its peer group

Acquiring Electrum's 60% interest provided Southern Silver with an additional 49.9 million ounces of silver and 1.35 billion pounds of combined lead and zinc to its account based on the current National Instrument 43-101 (2019) Mineral Resources estimate of the CLM Project. Additionally, Southern Silver has become more attractive on a corporate level with the Company's market profile being enhanced by having sole ownership of one of the largest and highest grade, undeveloped silver projects in the world.

Since execution of the agreement in June, 2020, the Company has continued to advance and expand the CLM Project by completing a total of 56 core holes totaling 22,360 metres with drilling recommencing in September 2020. Southern Silver has now tested over 850 metres of strike length along the east side of the Cerro to depths of up to 500 metres, primarily in the South Skarn and Mina La Bocona target areas.

Results from all drill programs since the date of the current Mineral Resource Estimate (2019) will be incorporated into a current mineral resource report on the CLM Project to be released within the next few weeks. As well, the Company continues to proceed with completing a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for issuance in Q1, 2022.

The Cerro Las Minitas project as of May 9th, 2019 contains a Mineral Resource Estimate, at a 175g/t AgEq cut-off, of(1)

  • Indicated - 134Moz AgEq: 37.5Moz Ag, 40Mlb Cu, 303Mlb Pb and 897Mlb Zn
  • Inferred - 138Moz AgEq: 45.7Moz Ag, 76Mlb Cu, 253Mlb Pb and 796Mlb Zn

Lawrence Page, Q.C., Southern Silver's President and Director, stated: "Electrum was a great joint venture partner, assisting with funds and expertise to allow Southern Silver to achieve the milestone 2019 Resource. Now Southern Silver, as the sole owner of the CLM Project, has explored new zones to establish resources not yet included in the Resource published in 2019. We anticipate that the aggregate Resource, soon to be presented and published, will significantly enhance the magnitude and value of the CLM Project. Electrum remains as a significant and supportive shareholder."

Equity Raises and Warrant Exercises: During the past twenty-one months the Company has raised $35,500,000 in equity raises, warrant and option exercises which has allowed the Company to fund the purchase of the 60% working interest and exploration costs at CLM. $15.5M remains in treasury to fund exploration and PEA costs at CLM and exploration costs at the Oro porphyry copper-gold project located in southern New Mexico, USA.

About Southern Silver Exploration Corp.
Southern Silver Exploration Corp. is an exploration and development company with a focus on the discovery of world-class mineral deposits. Our specific emphasis is the 100% owned Cerro Las Minitas silver-lead-zinc project located in the heart of Mexico's Faja de Plata, which hosts multiple world-class mineral deposits such as Penasquito, San Martin, Naica and Pitarrilla. We have assembled a team of highly experienced technical, operational and transactional professionals to support our exploration efforts in developing the Cerro Las Minitas project into a premier, high-grade, silver-lead-zinc mine. The Company engages in the acquisition, exploration and development either directly or through joint-venture relationships in mineral properties in major jurisdictions. Our property portfolio also includes the Oro porphyry copper-gold project located in southern New Mexico, USA.

  1. The 2019 Cerro Las Minitas Resource Estimate was prepared following CIM definitions for classification of Mineral Resources. Resources are constrained using mainly geological constraints and approximate 10g/t AgEq grade shells. The block models are comprised of an array of blocks measuring 10m x 2m x 10m, with grades for Au, Ag, Cu, Pb, Zn values interpolated using ID3 weighting. Silver and zinc equivalent values were subsequently calculated from the interpolated block grades. The model is identified at a 175g/t AgEq cut-off, with an indicated resource of 11,102,000 tonnes averaging 105g/t Ag, 0.10g/t Au, 1.2% Pb, 3.7% Zn and 0.16% Cu and an inferred resource of 12,844,000 tonnes averaging 111g/t Ag, 0.07g/t Au, 0.9% Pb, 2.8% Zn and 0.27% Cu. AgEq cut-off values were calculated using average long-term prices of $16.6/oz. silver, $1,275/oz. gold, $2.75/lb. copper, $1.0/lb. lead and $1.25/lb. zinc. Metal recoveries for the Blind, El Sol and Las Victorias deposits of 91% silver, 25% gold, 92% lead, 82% zinc and 80% copper and for the Skarn Front deposit of 85% silver, 18% gold, 89% lead, 92% zinc and 84% copper were used to define the cut-off grades. Base case cut-off grade assumed $75/tonne operating, smelting and sustaining costs. All prices are stated in $USD. Silver Equivalents were calculated from the interpolated block values using relative recoveries and prices between the component metals and silver to determine a final AgEq value. The same methodology was used to calculate the ZnEq value. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves until they have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for a resource's mineability, selectivity, mining loss, or dilution. The current Resource Estimate was prepared by Garth Kirkham, P.Geo. of Kirkham Geosciences Ltd. who is the Independent Qualified Person responsible for presentation and review of the Mineral Resource Estimate. All figures are rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimate and therefore numbers may not appear to add precisely.

Robert Macdonald, MSc. P.Geo, is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and supervised directly the collection of the data from the CLM Project that is reported in this disclosure and is responsible for the presentation of the technical information in this disclosure.

TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BWR Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: BWR) (“BWR” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce receipt of assays regarding four exploratory drill holes completed earlier this summer (see press release dated August 11, 2021) on its wholly-owned Vendôme Sud Property, located in the Abitibi Region of Northern Quebec, approximately 30 km. north of Val d’Or. The recent drill program by BWR was designed to investigate and confirm historical nickel and copper mineralization at various locations on the property. The program confirmed nickel and copper mineralization of sufficient grade that warrants further exploration. The best assay interval of 6.75m averaging 0.59% copper and 0.56% nickel at a vertical depth of about 50 metres was encountered in the first hole. BWR is currently planning a follow-up exploration program, that may include additional ground and down-hole geophysical surveys, as well as petrographic examination of selected drill core to investigate the mineralizing event.

Assay highlights of the four-hole drill program are presented in the following table:

*Assays presented above are as measured in the core box and not ‘true widths’

BWR successfully validated the two holes that were drilled in 1962 by Canadian Shield Corporation Inc., where the earlier results are comparable to the recent drill results of holes BWR-V-21-01 and BWR-V-21-02 by BWR. Nearby, (approximately 100 metres north) a fairly deep (150m + +) magnetic anomaly that had been interpreted as a mafic or ultramafic intrusive has also been confirmed and is anomalous in nickel, this intrusive may be the heat source for the observed alteration in the region. BWR’s third hole explored this geophysical anomaly to about 200 meters vertical depth. Hole BWR-V-21-03 encountered 6 meters of anomalous nickel values (0.14% over 6 meters). The historical “C Zone” is located approximately 1 km to the west of the “A Zone” where drilling in 1963, by Canadian Shield, identified similar mineralization for the “C Zone” as at the “A Zone”. BWR completed hole BWR-V-21-04 at the approximate location of the earlier hole, confirming the tenor of mineralization encountered in 1963 by Canadian Shield.

Assay results and discussion for Holes BWR-V-21-01 and BWR-V-21-02

These two holes were drilled in the “A-zone” attempting to replicate and/or confirm historic results from DDH 5-62-5 and 62-13 drilled by Canadian Shield in 1962. BWR’s first two holes intersected what appears to be a steeply dipping volcanic assemblage of rhyolite intercalated with intermediate to mafic metavolcanics. The mafic components appear moderately chloritized with pervasive quartz-carbonate veining. Relatively wide zones of moderate mineralization were encountered in holes BWR-V-21-01 and BWR-V-21-02 of 37.8m in hole 01 and 11.1m plus 22.1m in hole 02. These measurements are down hole core measurements, not true widths.

Hole BWR-V-21-01 was drilled at a dip of -50 degrees, bearing 205 degrees (SW) being a similar attitude to historical hole DDH 5-62-5 reportedly drilled 50 years earlier. The first hole by BWR intersected a pervasive mineralized package with intriguing assays of 0.34% Cu and 0.27% Ni over a drill length of 37.8 metres consisting of variably altered and mineralized ultramafic volcanics (66.75m to 73.5m that assayed 0.59% Cu and 0.56% Ni), weakly mineralized and altered rhyolite (79.8m to 88.9m), variably mineralized and altered mafic volcanics (88.9m to 103.3m), the hole ended in relatively poorly mineralized rhyolite at 201 metres.

Hole BWR-V-21-02 was drilled at a dip of -60 degrees, bearing 205 degrees (SW) undercutting the previous hole (BWR-V-21-01). In this hole the drill intersected an interpreted down dip extension of the mineralized package encountered in the first hole. It is described as containing pervasive mineralization between 79.9m to 91m representing 11.1 metres in drill core length that assayed 0.42% Cu and 0.27% Ni and 116m – 121.6m representing 5.6m in drill core length that assayed 0.29% Cu and 0.19% Ni. The mineralized zone consists of variably disseminated to semi-massive mineralized ultramafics (85.5m to 91m that assayed 0.55% Cu and 0.4% Ni), as well as a variably mineralized rhyolite from 91m to 117.3m, followed by weak to variably mineralized ultramafics from 117.3m to 122.7m. The second hole ended in poorly mineralized rhyolite at 252 metres.

Assay results and discussion for Hole BWR-V-21-03

This exploratory hole was drilled at a dip of -65 degrees, bearing 220 degrees (WSW), designed to intercept a geophysically-rendered aeromagnetic high coincident with an excess mass (gravity) anomaly, akin to an ultramafic intrusive, interpreted as being related to the mineralized mafic-ultramafic lenses observed in holes BW-V-21-01 and 02, located approximately 100 meters south. This hole intersected a sequence of mafic (gabbro/peridotite) to ultramafic (komatiite) volcanics, intercalated with granodiorite and other felsic intrusives / tuffs and schists (diorite, granodiorite, rhyolite), ending in a rhyolite tuff at a final drill hole length of 261 meters. Sulphide mineralization was observed to be brecciated and mostly within quartz-carbonate and carbonate stringers and veinlets, suggestive of remobilization into the volcanic sequence. A short 6m section of core between 102m and 108m returned anomalous assays of 0.06% Cu and 0.14% Ni.

Assay results and discussion for Hole BWR-V-21-04

Approximately one kilometer to the west of the “A zone” is the “C zone”. Hole BWR-V-21-04 was designed to test historic “C Zone” mineralization encountered in 1963 drill hole C-63-1 that included 5.5 feet grading 0.77% Ni + 0.65% Cu. Hole BW-V-21-04 was drilled at a dip of -45 degrees, bearing 205 degrees (SW) being the reported attitude of hole C-63-1. BWR’s hole intersected a series of rhyolite tuffs intercalated and intruded by intermediate to mafic units, followed by an ultramafic assemblage of komatiite and peridotite. Mineralization in this hole appeared very similar to the mineralization observed in the first two holes located 100 metres east. Hole BWR-V-21-04 intersected 14.7 meters of mineralization between 90 and 104 metres of core length that assayed 0.15% Cu and 0.18% Ni, including 2.9 meters (between 101.2m and 104.1 that assayed 0.46% Cu and 0.48% Ni.

Sampling protocol and security

Minroc Management Limited’s senior geologist Francis R. Newton (B.Sc.) as project geologist, was tasked with managing this drill project, working alongside Sahil Alurkar (M.Sc.). All samples were selected by Mr. Newton and Mr. Alurkar. Core was logged and cut in a secure site, owned and operated by Services MNG, in Val d’Or, Québec. Minroc Management Limited rented a core shack from Services MNG where Minroc geologists logged the core. Samples were cut with a diamond saw by Services MNG staff, under the supervision of Francis R. Newton, P. Geo, and half of the core for each sample interval placed in labelled plastic bags along with a sample tag for each individual sample. Samples were delivered to ALS Minerals in Val d’Or at the end of the program. Once at the lab, the samples were tested using “ME-ICP41a – Intermediate Level Aqua Regia” for multi-element analysis.
