VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Almaden Minerals Ltd. (“Almaden” or “the Company”; TSX: AMM; NYSE American: AAU) reports that it has resumed drilling activities at Ixtaca and takes this opportunity to report further on recent Covid-19 cases and the Company’s related protocols.

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, all fieldwork at Ixtaca has been conducted in compliance with the directives of the Mexican Institute for Social Security (“IMSS”). In addition to numerous sanitary measures, the Company has established a Covid Committee that meets weekly to assess the Covid-19 situation, ensure commitment to Company protocols, and discuss opportunities for improvement in the protocols. As part of this process, the Company arranged for a five-hour online Covid-19 education training program for each employee, resulting in an IMSS certificate for each employee.  

As reported on September 3, 2021, the Company’s Covid-19 protocols detected several Covid-19 cases amongst members of the Company’s local staff. These people were immediately quarantined and supported by the Company, and one individual was hospitalised. The Company regrets to report that despite all best efforts this individual has subsequently passed away. Almaden sends its deepest condolences to his family and friends. All other employees who initially tested positive for the disease are recovering satisfactorily, and soon will be returning to work.

Almaden has worked to facilitate efforts by employees to attend the national vaccination program and get vaccinated on the day allocated by these authorities. The Company continues to seek opportunities to work with local health authorities in order to help make local communities as resilient as possible in the face of this disease. Last year the Company provided local authorities with 4,000 bottles of alcohol gels and 10,000 masks. More recently, Almaden donated oxygen tanks, an oxygen concentrator and other medical supplies to the local authorities.

About Almaden

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.
