Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – November 24, 2021) – Rockcliff Metals Corporation (CSE: RCLF) (OTCQB: RKCLF) (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce high-grade near surface assay drill results from its phase one drill program at the Company’s 100% owned Copperman Property located in the Snow Lake mining camp in Manitoba.

Significant interpreted true thickness highlights from the first four holes include:

  • RCU21-001: 7.1 m grading 3.06% CuEq including 5.0 m grading 4.00% CuEq
  • RCU21-002: 6.0 m grading 4.35% CuEq including 4.0 m grading 5.89% CuEq
  • RCU21-003: 8.3 m grading 3.33% CuEq including 5.3 m grading 4.62% CuEq
  • RCU21-004: 5.0 m grading 2.64% CuEq including 3.0 m grading 3.32% CuEq

Rockcliff’s Interim President and CEO Don Christie commented, “We are extremely pleased with these high-grade assay results from the initial drill holes at Copperman. The near-surface widths are also very encouraging and we hope the ongoing drill program continues to produce these types of impressive results. The fact that the high-grade zone of copper-zinc mineralization and several other lower grade zones are hosted in a classic bi-modal volcanic environment is a testament to the prospectivity of the property for volcanogenic massive sulphides (VMS). Several other near surface geophysical anomalies similar to the one that is associated with the historical Copperman Deposit are untested with significant upside potential.”

Significant true thickness drill core assays from Rockcliff’s phase one drill program are summarized below.

Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Samples of half core were packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff’s core facility in Snow Lake to ALS Canada Ltd. (ALS), in Thunder Bay, Ontario. ALS 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 85% 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 inductively couple plasma atomic emission spectroscopy. 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 ALS other than ALS being a service provider to the Company.

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.

Brascan Enters into Option Agreement to Acquire Black Cat Property

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 7, 2021) – Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) ("Brascan" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that…

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 7, 2021) – Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) (“Brascan” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement (the “Agreement“) with Jason Flight, Wayne Hurley, Kenneth Lewis, Garland Rice, Peter Hurley and Daniel Jacobs (collectively, the “Optionors“) to acquire a 100% interest in the Black Cat property located 40 km south of the town of Baie Verte, Newfoundland (the “Property“). The Property contains 56 mineral claims and has two licences. The Property is near Brascan’s Middle Arm Fault property, which Brascan optioned on November 4, 2021. The Property is accessible by road and is within 100 km of the Nugget gold/copper milling facility. The option claims are near the northern boundary of Maritime Resources Corp.‘s Whisker Valley project, and Maritime’s past-producer Hammerdown gold deposit, which is described in some detail in Maritime’s PEA (McCracken et al., 2020).[1]

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is ranked among the top 10 mining jurisdictions world-wide by the Fraser Institute. The Baie Verte district in northwestern Newfoundland boasts excellent infrastructure reflecting its long mining history including a skilled workforce, a deep water port facility at Pine Cove, gold milling facilities at Pine Cove and Nugget Pond, a local assay laboratory, local mining and drilling contractors, high power transmission lines, a regional airport (100 km from the community of Baie Verte) and local hospitals, schools, hotels and supplies.

The Property covers a portion of the regionally significant Middle Arm Fault, which extends more than 15 km to the southwest, where it is spatially associated with several gold showings, as reported on the Newfoundland and Labrador Geoscience Atlas (https://geoatlas.gov.nl.ca/Default.htm). An initial round of sampling on the Property in 2020 resulted in 17 of 35 samples having the sulphite content of the quartz veins similar to the nearby Whisker Valley property. Given the strong gold content in the soil and till anomalies, it is likely that gold exists near the surface and within the mineralized quartz vein system of the Property.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company may acquire a 100% interest in the Property by: (i) making an aggregate cash payment to the Optionors of $168,000; (ii) issuing an aggregate of 670,000 common shares of the Company to the Optionors; and (iii) incurring an aggregate of $725,000 in exploration expenditures on the Property all prior to the fourth anniversary of the date of the Agreement. The share issuances, cash payments and exploration commitments gradually increase over the term of the Agreement. The Optionors will retain a 2.5% net smelter royalty, 1.5% of which may be purchased by Brascan for $2,000,000.
