  • The 2021 summer surface sampling program expended the mineralized corridor at the Lloyd discovery area from 60 m to 4.2 km (Figures 1 & 2, photos 1, 2 & 3) and remains open in all directions. The most significant samples are as follows:
    • 68.1 g/t Au, 13.4 g/t Ag, 0.26 % Zn, 0.34 % Pb
    • 8.17 g/t Au, 41.2 g/t Ag, 0.21 % Zn, 1.65 % Pb
    • 7.31 g/t Au, 18.3 g/t Ag, 0.28 % Zn, 0.46 % Pb
    • 6.05 g/t Au, 4.6 g/t Ag
    • 5.97 g/t Au, 31.8 g/t Ag, 0.13 % Pb
  • A new gold-bearing vein grading 61.8 g/t Au and 35.8 g/t Ag was discovered at the Georgekish showing in the north-central claim block of the project (Figures 1 & 3, photo 4)

MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / September 8, 2021 / Quebec Precious Metals Corporation ("QPM" or the "Company") (TSXV:QPM)(OTCQB:CJCFF)(FSE:YXEP) is pleased to report the grab sampling results from its Lloyd discovery located on its 100%-owned Elmer East Project (the "Project") in Quebec's Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory. A total of 153 grab samples were collected during the 2021 summer field program on the Project. This work was carried out with the participation of GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSX.V: SPOT, OTCQX: SPOFF), following its gold targeting analysis in 2020 on the Project, and under the supervision of QPM.

Normand Champigny, CEO of QPM, stated: "The 2021 summer surface sample results further confirm the excellent gold potential of the Elmer East project. We are going back to the field this month to improve our geological understanding of this extensive mineralized system to identify the best drill targets."

The recent surface sampling work expands the mineralized corridor identified in 2020 from 60 m to 4.2 km (see press releases of September 16, 2020, and January 20, 2021). The mineralized rocks consist of a 1 to 2 m wide SW-NE trending and shallow-dipping, hematized, quartz±epidote-carbonate veins with open spaces crystallization and various amounts of sulphide minerals (galena, sphalerite, chalcopyrite and pyrite). Grab samples taken from veins returned gold values up to 68.1 g/t Au. Mineralization is hosted in a chloritized wacke near the contact with a polymictic conglomerate of the Wabamisk Formation.

Figures 1, 2 and 3 below summarize the grab sample results as well as their locations. The complete sampling results are available on QPM's website.

The next phase of field work to be performed during September will be:

  • Collection of orthophoto and LiDAR data by helicopter over a surface area of 4.8 km2;
  • Characterization of the veins, including structures and mineralogy to better understand the mineralized systems of the discovery areas; and
  • Channel sampling of the new high grade discoveries.

In addition to these encouraging results at the Lloyd's discovery area, a new discovery denoted as Georgekish, a grab sample returned 61.8 g/t Au and 35.8 g/t Ag in the north-central claim block of the Elmer East Project. It consists of a deformed oxidized quartz vein (folded and dismembered) hosted in high strained chlorite altered conglomerates with disseminated pyrite and proximal to a gabbro dyke (see photo 4). This high-grade sample was collected within an interpreted NW-trending shear corridor, about 100 m to the SE of a 3.7 g/t Au grab sample collected during the 2020 summer. These two high values highlight the potential of other discoveries along the interpreted NW-trending structure. Further field validation will be performed in this area.

The Elmer East project consists of 929 claims (488 km2). It is to be noted that grab samples are selected samples and are not representative of the mineralization hosted on the Project. Access to the Project is facilitated by the quality infrastructure of the James Bay region.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Grab sample positions were recorded with a high-precision GPS. Quality assurance and quality control procedures have been implemented to ensure best practices in sampling and analysis of the channel samples. Standards and blanks were inserted regularly into the sample stream. 
The samples were delivered, in secure tagged bags, directly to the ALS Minerals laboratory facility in Val-d'Or, Quebec. The samples are weighed and identified prior to sample preparation. 
All samples are analyzed by fire assay with AA finish on a 30 g sample (0.005-10 ppm Au), with a gravimetric finish for assays over 10 ppm Au. Samples were also tested for 48 elements using four-acid digestion ICP-MS (MS-ME 61).

(TSXV:GGM) (OTC:GBBFF) (Frankfurt:B6D) (the “Company” or “Granada”) announces that it will be extending the expiry date of an aggregate 6,861,806 share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") by two years.  The 6,861,806 Warrants are due to expire on October 18 and November 6, 2021. The expiry date will be extended by two years and the Warrants will now expire on October 18 and November 6, 2023.  All other terms and conditions remain constant.


The private placement units were issued at a price of $0.15 per unit and consisted of one common share and one Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a period of three years from closing.  The amendment is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.


About Granada Gold Mine Inc.


Granada Gold Mine Inc. continues to develop and explore its 100% owned Granada Gold Property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, and is adjacent to the prolific Cadillac Break. The Company owns 14.73 square kilometers of land in a combination of mining leases and claims. The company is currently undergoing a large drill program with 30,000m out of 120,000m complete. The drills are currently paused to provide the technical team with the necessary time to evaluate and assimilate existing data.


The Granada Shear Zone and the South Shear Zone contain, based on historical detailed mapping as well as from current and historical drilling, up to twenty-two mineralized structures trending east-west over five and a half kilometers. Three of these structures were mined historically from four shafts and three open pits. Historical underground grades were 8 to 10 grams per tonne gold from two shafts down to 236 m and 498 m with open pit grades from 3.5 to 5 grams per tonne gold.


The property includes the former Granada Gold underground mine which produced more than 50,000 ounces of gold at 10 grams per tonne gold in the 1930’s from two shafts before a fire destroyed the surface buildings.  In the 1990’s, Granada Resources extracted a bulk sample (Pit #1) of 87,311 tonnes grading 5.17 g/t Au.  They also extracted a bulk sample (Pit # 2) of 22,095 tonnes grading 3.46 g/t Au.
