Fredericton, New Brunswick--(Newsfile Corp. - September 15, 2021) - TRU Precious Metals Corp. (TSXV: TRU) (OTCQB: TRUIF) (FSE: 706) ("TRU" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional assays from its 12-hole, Phase 1 diamond drilling program at its 100%-owned Twilite Gold Project in the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt ("Twilite Gold''). The Company is also providing an update on drilling preparations at its flagship Golden Rose Project ("Golden Rose"), also in the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt located along the deposit-bearing Cape Ray - Valentine Lake Shear Zone.

Highlights from the latest batch of Twilite Gold drill results (Tables 1 and 2) include:

  • 6.00 metres (m) grading 1.06 grams per ton (g/t) gold (Au) in drill hole TL-21-18.

  • 3.00m grading 0.85 g/t Au in drill hole TL-21-20.

  • Robust shear zone hosted quartz breccia system remains open along strike in all directions.

Barry Greene, VP of Property Development and Director of TRU, commented: "The strength of the alteration, brecciation and mineralization remains intact as the gold system is continuing to the southeast. As is common, structural complexities play a part in the distribution of gold as the gold zone is deeper than expected. We are working to determine if this is an offset or part of a separate zone."

TRU Co-Founder and CEO Joel Freudman added: "We are pleased that we continue to encounter gold mineralization in the results from our recently-completed inaugural drill program, and we look forward to the remaining results, which will guide future drilling at Twilite Gold. I am even more excited about our imminent 5,000-metre diamond drill program at our flagship Golden Rose Project - with permitting now in hand, drilling will soon be a reality. Over the past 4 months, our team has worked ardently in preparation. Golden Rose represents a unique opportunity for TRU for numerous reasons, with the key drivers being that it is well-situated both geologically and geographically, sandwiched between two neighbours with significant known gold deposits."

Golden Rose Drilling Preparations

At Golden Rose, drill permitting is now in place and a drill contract has been awarded to Logan Drilling Limited for a planned 5,000m diamond drilling campaign, scheduled to begin in early to mid-October. The Company is working closely with GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. in laying out and targeting its drill program.

TRU's main objectives for this drill program are (1) infill drilling at the South Woods Lake Gold Zone, to better delineate the known mineralization there, and (2) exploratory drilling at the recently-optioned King George IV claims in hopes of making a new discovery there, following the Company's discovery of visible gold grains on such claims this summer, as previously announced on July 14, 2021.

As additional preparatory steps, the Company recently completed a 1,568 line-kilometer airborne magnetic gradiometer survey over select portions of Golden Rose, including the King George IV claims. The Company is also preparing for an IP/Resistivity survey at the King George IV claims.

Drilling Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QA/QC")

All NQ core is sampled, cut by core saw, and split by Company personnel, and put into bags with unique sample tags for identification. The bags are sealed with a security tag and are then transported directly to the lab by TRU staff. All rock samples are analyzed at Eastern Analytical Ltd. ("Eastern Analytical") of 403 Little Bay Road, Springdale, NL, a commercial laboratory that is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited and independent of TRU. Eastern Analytical pulverized 1000 grams of each sample to 95% < 89 μm. Samples are analyzed using fire assay (30g) with AA finish and an ICP-34, four acid digestion followed by ICP-OES analysis. All samples with visible gold or assaying above 1.00 g/t Au are further assayed using metallic screen to mitigate the presence of the nugget effect of coarse gold. Standards and blanks are inserted at defined intervals for QA/QC purposes by the Company as well as Eastern Analytical. The TRU exploration program design is consistent with industry best practices and the program is carried out by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with National Instrument 43-101.

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.

Click HERE for video footage of wet commissioning.

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.

Qualified Persons

Steve Gray, P. Geo. has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information in this press release and is a "Qualified Person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
