Lead, South Dakota–(Newsfile Corp. – October 14, 2021) – Dakota Territory Resource Corp (OTCQB: DTRC) (“Dakota Territory” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding definitive option agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) to acquire LAC Minerals (USA) LLC (“LAC”) and Homestake Mining Company of California’s (“HMCC” or “Homestake”) Richmond Hill Property in the Homestake District, South Dakota (the “Richmond Hill Property”). The Definitive Agreement aligns with Dakota Territory’s strategic objective to be the premier South Dakota exploration company with the largest land and mineral tenure holdings in the historic Homestake District.

The Richmond Hill Property produced 172,000 oz of gold from 1988 to 1992, when it was shut down due to certain permitting issues. Historically defined oxide resources remain, and the property contains reclaimed but permitted leach pads and other operational infrastructure. Dakota Territory believes the property may have immediate potential for economic oxide gold resources but will concentrate its efforts in exploring for high grade Iron Formation targets similar to those identified at the Company’s adjoining Maitland Project. HMCC and LAC are wholly owned subsidiaries of Barrick Gold Corporation (“Barrick”).

Highlights include:

  • Solidifies Dakota Territory as the leading South Dakota exploration company through increasing its property package to 34,657 mineral acres (38,918 acres total), the largest property package in the Homestake District.

  • Three target types recognized on the Richmond Hill Property: 1) Pre-Cambrian Iron-Formation (two separate ledges outcrop on the property and contain high grade gold mineralization of Tertiary and/or Pre-Cambrian age), 2) Tertiary mineralization (oxide and sulfide) found in volcanic rocks, breccias, Paleozoic/Pre-Cambrian replacements, and structures defined by previous operator with potential for expansion (only partially explored and open in several directions), and 3) Breccia pipes (collapse breccias are open at depth with a potential high grade component).

  • Initial Phase 1 $1 million drill program of 16-20 holes for 9,000 feet that the Company anticipates commencing in the first quarter of 2022 to follow up on the above three targets.

  • Contains immediate drilling targets for key target types being pursued by Dakota Territory in the greater Homestake District.

  • Increases Barrick’s potential shareholdings to 5.55 million shares of common stock of the Company (“Shares”), representing a potential 7.48% interest in Dakota Territory.

Under the terms of the Definitive Agreement, Dakota Territory has a three-year option to acquire 2,126 acres of surface and mineral rights with attendant facilities held by HMCC and LAC (the “Option”) (see the map below). On signing of the Option, Dakota Territory will issue 400,000 Shares to Barrick and will make annual Option payments of US$100,000 during the Option period. Dakota Territory may exercise the Option on or before September 7, 2024, by assuming all of the liabilities and bonds currently held by LAC and HMCC for the Richmond Hill Property. In addition, on exercise of the Option, Dakota Territory will issue Barrick an additional 400,000 shares and grant a 1% NSR to Barrick with respect to any gold that may be recovered from the Richmond Hill Property.

Jonathan Awde, President and CEO of Dakota Territory stated, “We are pleased to enter into our third agreement with Barrick in the past year. Barrick already is a significant shareholder in Dakota Territory, giving them an indirect interest in the broader Homestake District. The Richmond Hill option provides Dakota Territory with an additional 2,126 acres of patented mining claims with surface facilities. The property also contains historic resources and other significant discoveries that we think will help expedite our success in addition to Dakota Territory’s greater district interests.”

“Barrick is again pleased to support Dakota Territory’s exploration efforts in the Homestake District. The Dakota Territory team has the vision and capability to make a positive contribution in the Homestake District and in the State of South Dakota,” said Patrick Malone, who oversees Barrick’s North American closure sites. “Dakota Territory has committed to build on the legacy of best practice environmental stewardship that Barrick has followed since suspending mining operations at the Homestake Mine in 2002 and we expect that Dakota Territory will wisely use existing infrastructure to minimize further disturbance of any new development activity.”

Todd Duex, geologic consultant to Dakota Territory and past geologist at the Richmond Hill Property, stated, “Having worked at Richmond Hill and conducted exploration in the surrounding area, I am excited to get back to the project and continue the exploration work we suspended in 1992. This option agreement will allow Dakota Territory access to the property with the ability to quickly focus on the most important opportunities with synergies to other Dakota Territory targets in the Homestake District.”

With more than US$50 million in working capital, Dakota Territory is well-funded to carry out its exploration activities during the term of the Option and to identify new mineral opportunities in the historic Homestake District, which has thus far produced more than 44 million ounces of gold.

Freeman Gold Announces Phase 2 Lemhi Resource Expansion and Beauty Zone Drill Program

Canada NewsWire

Phase 2 – >4,000 m diamond drill program

  • >3,200 metres testing strike extensions, primarily to the east and west of the current resource
  • 400 metre drill hole to test depth extent of gold mineralization at Lemhi
  • 400 metres of exploration drill holes at the Beauty Zone

CANADIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE: FMAN

VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 27, 2021 /CNW/ – Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE: FMAN) (OTCQB: FMANF) (FSE: 3WU) (“Freeman” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce its Phase 2 diamond drill program at the Lemhi Gold Deposit (“Lemhi“) and the new Beauty Zone (“Beauty Zone“). The proposed >4,000 m drill program focuses on adding near surface, oxide ounces to the recently reported maiden Mineral Resource Estimate on July 8, 2021. Drilling will also test the recently delineated Beauty Zone which lies approximately 600 metres west of Lemhi and host to a number of high-grade gold rock samples and coincident gold soil geochemistry.

“We are embarking on a second phase of diamond drilling focusing on ground (patented mining claims) that gives Freeman the highest probability of adding ounces to our resource base. The on-strike east and west extensions at Lemhi are key as these would provide new ounces within our current conceptual pit outline. As well, the Lemhi deposit has never been tested at depth beyond 286 metres where a number of holes were terminated in gold mineralization. Freeman plans to test mineralization at depth with at least one >400 m drill hole. We are also excited about testing the newly identified high grade Beauty Zone which returned 52 rock samples over 1 gram per tonne (“g/t”) gold (“Au“) and 28 over 10 g/t Au with coincident anomalous gold soil geochemistry,” remarked Paul Matysek, Executive Chairman.

Over 90% of the total drilling is anticipated to occur at Lemhi, while the remaining drilling will test the Beauty Zone. Of the 3,600 metres to be drilled at Lemhi, 3,025 metres are focused on resource expansion on strike down to a maximum depth of 300 metres below surface. These holes will follow up on drill holes from previous campaigns that remain open, such as FG20-24C which returned 0.4 g/t Au over 72 metres on section 429825N. One drill hole will test the depth potential at Lemhi down to 400 metres below surface; the hole will also infill in the shallower portions between drill holes FG20-17C (151m @ 2.5 g/t Au) and 35C (189m @ 0.54 g/t Au). A single infill hole is planned on section 429952N where a gap in the mineralization is present.

Figure 1 shows the proposed drilling plan map. Table 1 provides details on a hole-by-hole basis. Sections referred to on the Table can be viewed at www.freemangoldcorp.com.
