Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 10, 2021) – Quadro Resources Ltd. (TSXV: QRO) (OTCQB: QDROF) (FSE: G4O2(“Quadro” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its inaugural drill program at Long Lake and the second drill program of 2021 at its Staghorn project in Newfoundland (see Quadro’s news release dated May 25, 2021, for the early-2021 drill program at Staghorn). This latest drill program began at Long Lake in July before finishing at Staghorn in October. A total of nine holes were completed (five at Long Lake and four at Staghorn) and the Company is currently awaiting assay results.

The Company is pleased with this year’s drilling and exploration programs, which were challenging to organize due to a previously unseen increased level of mineral exploration in the province which continues to put pressure on drill rig and personnel availability. Due to this increased activity, the assay labs have been backed up to as much as two months, however the Company expects complete assay results in the coming weeks.

From T. Barry Coughlan (CEO): “Initial indications from the recent drill program at Long Lake and Staghorn are very positive and all holes hit the targeted mineralization, with visible gold in some cases. We look forward to releasing the assay results when received and compiled. Quadro is currently working on producing new data maps. These new maps will incorporate this year’s IP and mag and drill work allowing for a clearer overview of what we are looking at, which we believe could be a possible new discovery of an east-west trend through Long Lake and an extension to the Marks Pond zone at Staghorn. We look forward to releasing these results and planning next year’s field programs.” (See Figure 2 for detail.)

Long Lake
Quadro has a 100% interest in this property, located proximal to Marathon Gold’s Valentine Lake deposits, totaling 272 claim units covering 6800 hectares. The property is located along the northwest boundary of the Marathon Gold’s Valentine Lake project within an under-explored belt of mineralized volcano-sedimentary and intrusive rocks. At Long Lake, the main target has been the Ricky occurrence, where soil sampling and prospecting had defined a 700 m long gold target highlighted by a strong Au-in-soil anomaly and a number of float samples with values up to 33.65 g/t Au (see Quadro’s news release dated July 5, 2021).

The 2021 field program at Long Lake included geophysics, prospecting and geochemistry and this program was expanded to cover the recently optioned Tulks South claims. Detailed ground magnetics and induced polarization was completed on the Ricky target and five holes were drilled, intersecting pyrite mineralization with strong alteration including silicification, sericitization and variable quartz veining. Minor visible gold was recognized within the altered zone.

In July 2021, Quadro optioned the Tulks South property which consists of 212 claim units covering a portion of the Tulks volcanic belt (see Quadro’s news release dated July 26, 2021). These claims are tied onto Quadro’s Long Lake property and the entire package now consists of 482 units (120.5 sq km) covering a broad Monzonite intrusive unit which trends northeast across the properties. This unit is parallel to the Valentine Lake Monzonite which hosts Marathon Gold’s Valentine Lake deposits located 7 km to the southeast of the Quadro claims.

Staghorn
At Staghorn, the Company drilled four holes on the southwest end of the Marks Pond Zone, under last year’s identified mineralized targets. Previous drilling last winter at Marks Pond extended the wide gold alteration zone 400 m to the northeast with good indications that the gold grade and thickness were increasing with depth. Previous drilling in this area included intersections of 20.37 g/t Au over 0.5 m and 3.22 g/t Au over 5.0m (see Quadro’s news release dated May 25, 2021). Results from the four recently completed holes are pending.

Staghorn, Long Lake, and Tulks South are located within the auriferous “Cape Ray Fault Corridor,” proximal to Marathon Gold’s Valentine Lake deposits (Total Measured Mineral Resources (inclusive of the Mineral Reserves) comprise 1.9 Moz (31.7 Mt at 1.86 g/t) with Indicated Mineral Resources (inclusive of the Mineral Reserves) of 1.19 Moz (23.2 Mt at 1.60 g/t). Additional Inferred Mineral Resources are 0.96 Moz (16.77 Mt at 1.78 g/t Au). (N.I. 43-101 Technical Report & Pre-Feasibility Study on the Valentine Gold Project Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada Report date: April 21, 2020. Effective date: April 18, 2020 Prepared for: Marathon Gold Corporation 10 King St. East, Suite 501, Toronto, ON, M5C 1C3 Prepared by: Ausenco Engineering Canada). Other hot spots along this corridor include Matador Mining Ltd.’s Cape Ray deposits with a resource of 837,000oz Au at 2 g/t (see Matador’s May Scoping Study 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate, Cape Ray Gold Project, JORC 2012 Classified Resource Summary – Gold Resource Only) and Sokoman Minerals Corp.‘s Moosehead project where an on-going drill program has produced intersections with 11.90 m @ 44.96 g/t Au including 1.35 m @ 385.85 g/t Au (see Sokoman’s June 2021 corporate presentation). (Mineralization hosted on these established operations is not necessarily indicative or representative of the mineralization that may be hosted on the Company’s property.)

Careless Cove
Quadro has an option to earn a 100% interest in the Careless Cove/Yellow Fox claim groups, totaling 40 claim units. The two claim groups form an exciting addition to Quadro’s project portfolio in Newfoundland. Whereas the Long Lake, Tulks South, and Staghorn projects are focused on the gold rich Cape Ray Fault system in southwestern Newfoundland, the Careless Cove properties are located to the northeast and are adjacent to New Found Gold Corp.‘s claims, which have seen promising early results. Prospecting and soil geochemistry was carried out in mid-2021 (see Quadro’s news release dated May 27, 2021) with exploration and drilling planned for winter 2022. (See Figure 3 for detail.)

Drilling Summary on the Staghorn and Long Lake Properties

  • Nov-Dec 2018 887 meters in five holes focused on completing a fence of holes across the Cape Ray structure at Ryan’s Hammer, Staghorn. This drilling combined with previous drilling to the east partially outlined two wide gold trends with only one drill cut in each trend.
  • Sep-Dec 2020 1696 meters in thirteen holes. The drilling tested two of four soil anomalies in the Marks Pond area and attempted to expand on the Ryan’s Hammer mineralization previously tested in 2018 at Staghorn. The highlight of the program was the discovery of a new gold zone at Mark’s Pond where hole MP20-02 intersected 10.1 g/t over 1.0m within a wider interval of 3.22 g/t Au over 5.0 m.
  • Feb-May 2021 Ten holes at the Marks Pond Zone, Staghorn project. Intersected 20.37 g/t Au over 0.5 m and 3.89 g/t Au over 2.5 m. This program was initiated to take advantage of winter conditions to access certain drill sites with wet and boggy terrain.
  • July-Oct 2021 (present program) 1648 meters in nine holes at Long Lake and Staghorn. Assay results are pending; delays due to backed up assay labs. A strongly altered monzonite intrusive was intersected in the Long Lake drilling with minor visible gold identified in one hole. At Staghorn, the Marks Pond Zone was intersected at an average depth of 170 meters in three holes with visible gold identified in one hole.

Follow up drilling is planned on these two newly discovered zones and first pass drilling is planned on the Careless Cove/Yellow Fox property in north-eastern Newfoundland, adjacent to New Found Gold Corp.‘s Queensway project.

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE U.S. OR OVER U.S. NEWSWIRES

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE:SIXW) (OTCQB:ATURF) (FSE:AHUH) (“Sixth Wave or SIXW or Company”) and Rio2 Limited (“Rio2) (TSXV:RIO) (OTCQX: RIOFF) (BVL: RIO) are pleased to announce the signing of a contract (“Contract”) which provides for the continuation of testing of SIXW’s patented IXOS® purification polymer (the “IXOS® Mining Technology”) at Rio2’s Fenix Gold Project in Chile using Rio2’s nearby Lince Infrastructure facilities. The Contract follows successful completion of testing done on representative samples of ore from Rio2’s Fenix Gold Project at Sixth Wave’s Salt Lake City, Utah facility undertaken pursuant to the non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) entered into between Sixth Wave and Rio2 in September 2020. See Sixth Wave’s and Rio2’s joint press release dated September 14, 2020 for additional information regarding the LOI. The move to near-site testing represents a significant step forward, and investment by the two companies, in the trial test project.

Under the terms of the LOI, Rio2 sent representative ore samples from its Fenix Gold Project to Sixth Wave for testing and analysis. The testing confirmed that IXOS® Mining Technology outperformed activated carbon on several key metrics including gold adsorption efficiency, ease of elution, and overall adsorption kinetics. A comprehensive costs/benefit analysis was performed using the data obtained in the laboratory testing along with ongoing testing performed by Rio2 on activated carbon as part of their pilot operations. The analysis also detailed the expected plant size, potential CAPEX and OPEX savings, and expansion capability/pathways. IXOS® polymer is reusable and the potential for favorable usage life over activated carbon especially with scaling agents in the mine’s water source provided sufficient encouragement that the project should proceed to the next phase of test work.

Sixth Wave will perform recovery tests from leach solution using its IXOS® Mining Technology and the leaching columns already commissioned and utilized by Rio2 to evaluate adsorption kinetics and other parameters. Testing is expected to start in Q4 2021, post winter months, assuming that current COVID-19 restrictions in Chile will abate. The testing will include 50 days of on-site operation of the system under a variety of testing scenarios to validate IXOS® performance and determine additional details regarding the cost/benefit analysis. Tests with a parallel set of activated carbon columns will allow for direct comparison between the two adsorbents under common testing conditions. Potential positive environmental impact and reduced carbon footprint (CO2 emissions) of using IXOS® over activated carbon for the process plant will also be explored during this phase of the project. The IXOS® Mining Technology operates at significantly reduced power consumption with fewer reagents than activated carbon. Therefore, opportunities exist for enhancing Rio2’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) posture should IXOS® Mining Technology continue to show advantages in overall process efficiency.

Consistent with the terms of the LOI, Rio2 will pay travel expenses, external test work, and the operation of the pilot equipment during the test. The SIXW team will be lead by Mr. Nicol Newton, Sixth Wave’s Director of Technical Services and a 20 year gold mining veteran. Mr. Newton will be accompanied by Dr. Glen Southard, one of the inventors and developers of IXOS® Mining Technology. Sixth Wave will provide in-kind labor to support testing and analysis and all of the testing apparatus/pilot equipment for use during the project. The field kit will be returned to SIXW upon completion of the pilot.

Upon successful completion and receipt of positive results from the column test pilot program, the companies will move to a second near site testing phase incorporating the IXOS® Mining Technology into a long term pilot plant that will operate alongside the currently planned carbon adsorption circuit, This will provide long-term operational data including the determination of the useful life of the IXOS® polymer beads, and specifications for full-scale implementation pegged to the mine operation and potential future mine expansion plans.

Sixth Wave continues to be very positive on the project and working relationship with Rio2. Moving to near-site testing with a solid and well focused test plan will validate and extend the laboratory testing already completed and help both companies make defensible, data driven decisions about next steps toward adoption,” noted Dr. Jon Gluckman, President and CEO of Sixth Wave. He went on to say, “We have really been impressed by the Rio2 team and the investment in time and resources that they are making to further this program. We will continue to do our part to deliver a positive return on this investment through our contributions to the cost sharing and delivering tangible benefits to Fenix Gold Project.”

“Rio2 is always looking to embrace and trial new technology with the objective of bringing enhanced value to our stakeholders through the reduced capex/opex opportunities that innovative technologies may bring. The Fenix Gold Project is currently the largest undeveloped gold heap leach project in the Americas and we look forward to working alongside Sixth Wave during the development phase of the project,stated Mr. Alex Black, President and CEO of Rio2 Limited.
