Montreal, October 25, 2021– TheNewswire – J. François Lalonde, President and CEO of Stellar AfricaGold Inc., (TSXV:SPX) (“Stellar” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the second trenching program on the Zones B and A gold structures of its Tichka Est project in the High Atlas region confirms that Stellar has a new gold discovery in the High Atlas region of Morocco.

 

Summary of Results

 

Stellar successfully completed a second 10-trench surface sampling program extending the mineralized strike of both the Zones B and A gold structures on its 90% earn-in Tichka Est gold project in Morocco. The trenching program, which totalled 200 linear metres, yielded intervals in Zone B as high as 3.40 g/t Au over 20 meters including internals of 5.23 g/t Au over 11 meters and 8.14 g/t Au over 5 meters in Trench 7B, 4.64 g/t Au over 14 meters including 11.16 g/t Au over 5 meters in Trench 9B, and 3.4 g/t Au over 17 meters including 9.55 g/t Au over 4 meters in Trench 6B. This second trenching program builds upon Stellar’s previous program (see news release April 19, 2021) which yielded intervals up to 4.55 g/t Au over 15 meters including an internal of 7.47 g/t Au over 6.0 meters in Zone B, and 3.36 g/t Au over 10 meters including an interval of 8.73 g/t Au over 3.0 meters in Zone A.

 

The Zone B structure has been mapped at surface for a strike length of over 2 km of which 750 meters has been trenched and channel sampled. The Zone A structure has been mapped for over 500 meters along strike of which 450 meters has been trenched and channel sampled.

 

About the Tichka Est Project, Morocco

 

The Tichka Est property is comprised of three contiguous permits covering an area of 44.6 km2 within the High Atlas Western Domain approximately 100 km SSW of the city of Marrakech. The general area is accessible year-round by road via a national road to the village of Analghi located near the mineralized gold zone. Stellar is awaiting permits for construction of a heavy equipment access road to proposed drill sites at Zones B and A.

 

Details of the Second Trenching Program

 

This second trenching program was designed to provide a better understanding of the geological and structural nature of the Zone B and A structures and to confirm the lateral extension of the two previously identified highly metamorphosed gold mineralized shear zones. The trenches were dug to an average depth of 1.5 meters and over lengths of 15 to 25 meters depending upon the visible width of the structure at that point. Seven trenches were dug across the Zone B structure and two across the Zone A structure. One trench was dug in another area of interest outside of the Zones B and A structures.

ZONE B

 

A portion of the two-kilometer plus surface exposure of Zone B has now been investigated by two trenching programs. A total of 12 trenches were dug by teams using hand tools down to a depth of 1.5 meters. There, fresh rock exposures were channel sampled across one-meter intervals using a rock saw for a better conformity of the samples (See figure 1 below). In this recent trenching program, seven trenches were dug across the Zone B mineralized structure which extended the trenched gold-mineralized zone to over 750 meters of strike length trending Northeast to Southwest.

The Zone B gold mineralized structure is oriented N800 and located along the contact of a limestone and a schist. The contact is highly sheared and injected by quartz-ankerite-calcite veins and veinlets with trace of sulphide, pyrite, chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite to which the gold mineralization is closely associated. Within the 750-meter trenched mineralized zone the best results appear to be on the Northeastern end of Zone B. The highest assay results, which were obtained in trenches T6B, T7B and T9B, and are listed below.

 

Trench 6B – 3.4 g/t Au over 17 meters including 9.55 g/t Au over 4 meters.

 

Trench 7B – 3.40 g/t Au over 20 meters including 5.23 g/t Au over 11 meters and 8.14 g/t Au over 5 meters. Note also that Trench 7B is mineralised over its entire 20-meter length and that the width of the mineralised Zone B structure exceeds the trench length at that location.

 

Trench T9B – 4.64 g/t Au over 14 meters including 11.16 g/t Au over 5 meters

 ZONE A

 

Zone A is a N3500 trending structure. During this program two new trenches were dug to confirm the northern extension of the structure. The two new trenches successfully confirmed the northern extension of the zone for an additional 125 meters increasing the confirmed gold-mineralized Zone A to approximately 450 meters along strike. In Zone A the mineralisation is in a shear zone at the contact of a dolerite dyke and a schist unit. The sheared zone is also injected by quartz-ankerite veins and veinlets.

The highest assay results in Zone A were obtained in trenches T5A and T6A are listed as follow.

 

T5A – 1.85 g/t Au over 8.0 meters including 3.55 g/t Au over 3 meters

 

T6A – 2.70 g/t Au over 5.0 meters including 3.71 g/t Au over 3 meters

Technical Information and Quality Control Notes

 

The trenches were excavated across the Zones A and B structures using hand tools to an average depth of 1.5 metres. The trenches were mapped at a scale of 1:100 and channeled sampled at 1 metre intervals using a mechanical rock saw for a better sample accuracy as recommended in Stellar’s Technical Report of November 15, 2020.

 

Sample collection was done by two experienced senior local geologists under the supervision of Yassine Belakbir, Stellar’s Director in Morocco and by Dr. Ali Saquaque, Stellar’s Technical Advisor for Africa. The samples were bagged at the sampling site and stored in safe areas until being transported to African Laboratory for Mining and Environment (“Afrilab”) in Marrakech for analysis.

 

200 samples were sent to Afrilab for this program. In addition, for the purpose of quality control, 7 standard, 7 duplicate and 7 blank samples were added to the batch and, except for one duplicate that is showing a probable nugget effect, all standard analysis results fall within the tolerance range of the original samples. The blank sample values were all below the detection limit for gold.

    

CONCLUSION

 

In conclusion, the second Tichka Est trenching program of the Zone A and B structures extended the mineralized strike lengths of both zones and successfully outlined wider gold mineralization with some high-grade intersections of considerable widths confirming Stellar’s gold discovery in Morocco. The gold is associated with injected quartz-carbonate veins in highly brecciated sheared structures context. The results fully justify the drill program currently in preparation beginning on the Zone B structure and progressing to the Zone A structure thereafter.

 

Additionally, this program provided Stellar with valuable geological information which will facilitate the exploration of other areas of interest within the Tichka Est Permits area.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 22, 2021 / Scorpio Gold Corporation (“Scorpio Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SGN) reports that certain of the directors of the Company have agreed to provide the Company with a short- term credit facility in order to maintain its operations over the short-term. The proceeds of the advances made under the credit facility will be used to bridge the Company’s activities until all Goldwedge assays have been announced so that an equity placement can be conducted later in the year.

As announced on September 29, 2021, the pending assays from the Goldwedge underground drill program will be announced upon receipt and analysis. The drill program was focused on defining the on-strike and down-dip continuity of mineralization intersected in the 2020 drilling program (July 27, 2020 news release) as well as testing new areas with the potential to define a mineral resource base.

Future drilling will test the Company’s structural interpretation that mineralization at Goldwedge could connect with mineralization in the West Pit area of the Company’s adjacent and proximal Manhattan Mine project. Goldwedge is a fully permitted underground mine and a 400 ton per day mill facility. The Manhattan Property includes 2 former producing mines, the Reliance Mine, which reportedly produced ~59,000 tons grading 0.435 oz/ton from 1932 to 1941, and the Manhattan Mine East and West pits, which produced ~236,000 oz. from 1974-1990. The deposits lie along the northwest-trending Reliance StructuralZone, which is considered the most predominant ore controlling structure in the region. The Reliance trend continues 4 km southeast to Scorpio Gold’s Keystone-Jumbo project area.

The credit facility is unsecured and interest free for US$500,000 to be drawn in advances at a minimum of US$100,000 over the next few months. All advances must be repaid within the earlier of Scorpio Gold closing a private placement more than C$1,000,000 and January 1, 2022.
