Bur Mineralization and Resource Expansion Potential

The Bur Deposit is a sediment hosted stratiform volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit that occurs within a narrow turbidite assemblage of interbedded metagreywacke, metasiltstone and graphitic meta-argillite in a basinal area situated between two granitic intrusions. The northeast striking deposit dips 60-70 degrees northwest, averages 2.0 metres true thick and ranges from <0.3 metres up to 9 metres thick and to date has a known lateral extent of approximately 8,000 metres. Historic and recent drilling throughout the Bur Property has encountered near surface, disseminated, semi-massive and massive sulphide mineralization below shallow overburden along a strike length of over 6,000 metres and to a vertical depth of 1,274 metres (see Figure 2). Mineralization consists of sphalerite, chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite, galena and arsenopyrite. The Bur Deposit remains open in all directions and contains up to 20% felsic or cherty nodules consisting of wall-rock and late quartz fragments displaying a brecciated texture to the mineralization.

Resource Estimate Methodology

The Mineral Resource Estimate reported herein, considered drilling information available up to 2020 and was evaluated using a geostatistical block modeling approach constrained by polymetallic mineralization wireframes utilizing MinePlan 3D© software Version 15-80-2 modeling software. The evaluation of the Mineral Resource Estimate involved CuEq cut-off value determination, constraining wireframe solids creation, compositing, grade capping, variography, grade Interpolation and Mineral Resource Estimate quantification.

A total of 238 drill holes (totalling 107,101 metres) from the entire database were reviewed and 208 of those drill holes (totalling 101,676 metres) were utilized to create the constraining wireframes (mineralized zone). The constraining wireframes have an overall strike length of 6,060 metres, down dip projection of 1,464 metres and average true width of 2 metres. There were 1,116 assays captured by the constraining wireframes that were combined into 436 regular 1-metre composites with an average core length of 2.25 metres. A grade capping evaluation was performed and grades were capped at 6.5% for copper (Cu), 30% for zinc (Zn), 0.35 g/t for gold (Au) and 40 g/t for silver (Ag). The capped composites were evaluated using variography to determine the grade interpolation search ranges and also used for resource assurance (classification). Resource classification is influenced by distance to the nearest drill hole sample composite, age of the exploration data and number of drill hole intercepts through the mineralized zone. For measured resources, a minimum of 3 sampled intercepts within 50 metres from Rockcliff-only drill holes is used as a guide. For indicated resources 3 sampled drill hole intercepts up to 100 mtertes and for inferred a minimum of one sampled intercept per drill hole up to 200 metres is used as a guide.

Grade interpolation was undertaken from 1-metre regular drillhole composited through the mineralized zone into a horizontally rotated 3D block model orientated along strike (045 degrees) of the mineralized zone. An ID3 method of estimation was used for Cu, Zn, Au and Ag grade data that was estimated in a regular block size of 20 metres along stike, 2.5 metres across-strike and 5 metres vertical. Bulk density was derived from 61 specific gravity (SG) measurements taken from within the mineralized zone that ranged from a minimum of 2.76 to 3.76, generating a median and average SG of 3.1. Density from within the mineralized zone for resource reporting was fixed at 3.1. The subsequent block model grades and tonnages were quantified for the Mineral Resource Estimate at a 2.3% CuEq cut-off value.

Neither Rockcliff’s Qualified Person, Ken Lapierre, P.Geo., nor Stantec’s Qualified Person, Derek Loveday, P.Geo., nor management of Rockcliff are aware of any known environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing or other relevant issues that may materially affect the estimate of the Mineral Resource.

Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Samples of half core were packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff’s core facility in Snow Lake to TSL Laboratories (TSL), in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. TSL is a Canadian assay laboratory and is accredited under ISO/IEC 17025. Each bagged core sample was dried, crushed to 70% passing 10 mesh and a 250g pulp is pulverized to 95% passing 150 mesh for assaying. A 0.5g cut is taken from each pulp for base metal analyses and leached in a multi acid (total) digestion and then analyzed for copper, lead, zinc and silver by atomic absorption. Gold concentrations are determined by fire assay using a 30g charge followed by an atomic absorption finish. Samples greater than the upper detection limit (3000 ppb) are reanalyzed using fire assay gravimetric using a 1 assay ton charge. Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the sample stream to ensure lab integrity. Rockcliff has no relationship with TSL other than TSL being a service provider to the Company.

The Mineral Resource for the Bur Property disclosed in this press release has been estimated by Mr. Derek Loveday, P.Geo. a Project Manger for Stantec and is independent of Rockcliff. By virtue of his education and relevant experience Mr. Loveday is a “Qualified Persons” for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Loveday has read and approved the technical contents of this press release as it pertains to the disclosed Mineral Resource Estimate.

Ken Lapierre P.Geo., VP Exploration of Rockcliff, a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101, has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this press release.

Tantalex Resources Corporation Provides Exploration and Corporate Update

 

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – December 3, 2021 – Tantalex Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX) (CNSX:TTX.CN) (“Tantalex” or the “Corporation”),…

 

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – December 3, 2021 – Tantalex Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX) (CNSX:TTX.CN) (“Tantalex” or the “Corporation”), is pleased to provide an update on its exploration and corporate activities.

Manono Lithium Tailings Project

 

Drilling on the Manono Lithium Tailings Project (the “Tailings Project”) is now completed with a total of 9,279m of aircore drilling and 980m of Cobra drilling. Sample preparation is ongoing and being sent to the ALS laboratory in Ireland for assaying. Initial batch of 1080 samples have arrived in Ireland since mid November but results are still pending due to extended delays in customs clearance.

 

Exploration on Pegmatite Corridor

 

Tantalex would also like to confirm that road and drill pad preparation to begin drilling on the near surface pegmatite occurrences along the Corridor are completed and that drilling is expected to commence in the coming days.

 

The objective with this drill program is to test near surface pegmatites in areas of known tin and tantalum occurrences for potential lithium content.

 

As indicated in our press release of November 1st, the pegmatite corridor is downstrike from the historical Manono Kitotolo mine where AVZ Minerals have recently published a 400M ton resource report with average Li2O grades of 1,65%. (AVZ Minerals, Definitive Feasibility Study, Manono Lithium & Tin Project, April 21,2020).

 

The Manono region is set to become an important tier one supplier of lithium with AVZ Minerals recently announcing an investment of USD $240 million dollars for a 24% stake in their Manono Lithium project from CATH, a private investment entity jointly owned by Mr. Pei Zhenhua and Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Limited (“CATL”),

  

MOU with XIMEI

 

Tantalex is also pleased to announce that it is currently in ongoing discussions with Ximei Resources Holding Ltd. (“Ximei”) to enter into a definitive agreement that will replace and supersede the memorandum of understanding (the “MOU”) previously announced on February 18, 2021. Completion of such negotiation shall be subject to XIMEI’s formal confirmation and public announcement. The definitive agreement will provide the framework for a strategic partnership between Tantalex and Ximei, whereby the parties will collaborate in conducting a feasibility study and ultimately establish a tantalum refining plant in the Manono region, Tangyanika Province, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the “Region”) should all underlying requirements set forth in the definitive agreement be fulfilled. The refining plant will be intended to treat the tantalum concentrate produced by Tantalex and other local cooperatives in the Region with whom Tantalex has established business partnerships.

 

The Region is richly endowed with coltan and cassiterite, which is often closely associated to the numerous lithium pegmatites. Based on Tantalex’s exploration and resource definition activities on the Tailings Project and along the Pegmatite Corridor, Tantalex considers that an annual production of 50-80t of net metal is achievable on its concessions. Given the eluvial and alluvial nature of the coltan and cassiterite, semi-industrial production of tantalum and tin concentrate could potentially start as early as Q3 2022 on Tantalex’s concessions.

 

Corporate update

 

Tantalex is pleased to announce that it intends to amend its articles of incorporation to give effect to a name change of the Corporation to “Tantalex Lithium Resources Corp.”, which will allow for an accurate reflection of the nature of its lithium exploration and development objectives and short-term endeavours. The name change and the amendment of the Corporation’s articles of incorporation will be subject to the approval of the shareholders and will be a matter to be voted upon during the Corporation’s next annual general and special shareholders meeting set to occur no later than as of the 3rd week of January 2022.  

 

The company also confirms that AfriMet Resources has fully exercised their 50,000,000 warrants and, as a result, their current shareholding in Tantalex stands at 28%.

 

An additional 5,000,000 warrants have been exercised and a $100,000 convertible debenture issued in 2018 in consideration of a loan has been converted into 2,520,000 common shares of the Corporation at a per-share price of $0.05, the whole in accordance with Canadian Securities Exchange guidelines.  

 

Qualified Person

 

The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Gary Pearse MSc, P. Eng, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements

The information in this news release includes certain information and statements about management’s view of future events, expectations, plans and prospects that constitute forward looking statements. These statements are based upon assumptions that are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Because of these risks and uncertainties and as a result of a variety of factors, the actual results, expectations, achievements or performance may differ materially from those anticipated and indicated by these forward looking statements.

Forward Looking Information

This press release contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation. All statements in this news release, other than statements of historical fact, that address events or developments that Giyani expects to occur, are “forward-looking statements”, including but not limited to statements in respect of the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange and the use of the net proceeds of the Offering. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by the words “expects”, “does not expect”, “plans”, “anticipates”, “does not anticipate”, “believes”, “intends”, “estimates”, “projects”, “potential”, “scheduled”, “forecast”, “budget” and similar expressions, or that events or conditions “will”, “would”, “may”, “could”, “should” or “might” occur.

All such forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of the relevant management as of the date such statements are made and are subject to certain assumptions, important risk factors and uncertainties, many of which are beyond Giyani’s ability to control or predict. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based on estimates and assumptions that are inherently subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In the case of Giyani, these facts include their anticipated operations in future periods, planned exploration and development of its properties, and plans related to its business and other matters that may occur in the future. This information relates to analyses and other information that is based on expectations of future performance and planned work programs.

Forward-looking information is subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual events or results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking information, including, without limitation: inherent exploration hazards and risks; risks related to exploration and development of natural resource properties; uncertainty in Giyani’s ability to obtain funding; commodity price fluctuations; recent market events and conditions; risks related to the uncertainty of mineral resource calculations and the inclusion of inferred mineral resources in economic estimation; risks in how the world-wide economic and social impact of COVID-19 is managed; risks related to governmental regulations; risks related to obtaining necessary licenses and permits; risks related to their business being subject to environmental laws and regulations; risks related to their mineral properties being subject to prior unregistered agreements, transfers, or claims and other defects in title; risks relating to competition from larger companies with greater financial and technical resources; risks relating to the inability to meet financial obligations under agreements to which they are a party; ability to recruit and retain qualified personnel; and risks related to their directors and officers becoming associated with other natural resource companies which may give rise to conflicts of interests. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect Giyani’s forward-looking information. Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in the forward-looking information or statements.

Giyani’s forward-looking information is based on the reasonable beliefs, expectations and opinions of their respective management on the date the statements are made, and Giyani does not assume any obligation to update forward looking information if circumstances or management’s beliefs, expectations or opinions change, except as required by law. For the reasons set forth above, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. For a complete discussion with respect to Giyani and risks associated with forward-looking information and forward-looking statements, please refer to Giyani’s Annual Information Form and the Prospectus, all of which are filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
