VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Metallica Metals Corp. (CSE:MM) (OTC:MTALF) (FWB:SY7P) (the “Company” or “Metallica Metals”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 4,000 metre diamond drilling program on its Starr Gold-Silver Project (“Starr” or the “Project”) located in the Thunder Bay Mining District of Ontario. The Project, which the Company has the right to earn up to a 100% interest from Benton Resources Inc. (TSXV:BEX), covers a large land position (5,991 ha) that includes several high-grade gold and silver occurrences within a 20 km long segment of the southwestern section of the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt. The Project is accessible year-round by highway and logging roads and is located in close proximity to the Moss Lake gold deposit owned by Goldshore Resources Inc. and the Huronian Gold Property owned by Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (Figure 1).

Please note: The adjacent Moss Lake gold deposit hosts an Indicated Mineral Resource of 39,797,000 tonnes grading 1.1 g/t Au for 1,377,300 contained ounces of gold and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 50,364,000 tonnes grading 1.1 g/t Au for 1,751,600 contained ounces of gold, and is currently under care and maintenance (source: NI 43-101 Technical Report and PEA for the Moss Lake Project with an effective date of May 31, 2013 and filed on SEDAR under Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd., now Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd.). Readers are cautioned that mineralization and mineral resource estimates on adjacent and/or nearby properties are not necessarily indicative of mineralization on the Starr Project (please refer to additional cautionary statements below).

Paul Ténière, CEO and Director of Metallica Metals commented, “We are very excited to commence our first diamond drilling program at Starr. Our geological team have developed high priority targets at Starr based on our recent airborne geophysical survey results and within areas that have historically been known to host high grade gold and/or silver mineralization. The Shebandowan Greenstone Belt is emerging as a significant gold district with our neighbours Goldshore Resources recently launching a 100,000 m drilling program on the nearby Moss Lake gold deposit. We look forward to testing our drill targets and will keep the market up to date on our exploration activities over the coming weeks.

Starr Drilling Program Summary

Metallica Metals plans to focus its initial diamond drilling program on a combination of historical high-grade gold and silver mineral occurrences within the Starr Project as detailed below and shown in Figures 2 to 4. The three main areas to be tested are the Central, Eastern, and Western Starr target areas. Drilling will test several structural and geophysical targets determined from the Company’s recently completed airborne mag-EM survey, in combination with all historical geochemical, geophysical, and geological data from the Project. Drilling supervision, and core logging and sampling will be managed by Fladgate Exploration Consulting Corp. of Thunder Bay and diamond drilling will be completed by Missinaibi Drilling Services Ltd. of Timmins.

Central Starr Target Area

Drilling around the central portion of the property (Central Starr) will be focused on the Starr Showing and Powell Zone (Figure 2). The Company has used available historical data, recommendations from previous work reports, as well as targets from a newly completed geophysical and structural interpretation to plan drill holes in this area. Several drill holes will act as infill, testing the continuity between known values, while others will test structures that have never been drill tested that also hold gold values at surface.

Eastern Starr Target Area

Drilling on the eastern side of the property (Eastern Starr) will be focused around the CK Showing (also referred to as the Keats Zone) and the continuation of the Megan Vein (Figure 3). The CK Showing has never been drill tested and returned up to 16.5 g/t Au and 349 g/t Ag from select samples at surface based on historical assessment reports. Two drill holes have also been planned in proximity to the Megan Vein to test the continuity of mineralization in that area. One of these holes is along strike from the vein and located within an IP (Induced Polarization) high, while the other is on the edge of an IP high with multiple significant gold values found at surface. Both have also never been drill tested and are planned to angle into the 2nd order structure that has been interpreted in the area.

Western Starr Target Area

On the western side of the property (Western Starr), no historical drilling has occurred (Figure 4). The Company will first target the South Showing, which returned up to 5.6 g/t Au from grab sampling and 8.5 g/t Au over 1 m from channel sampling based on historical assessment reports. The drill holes will angle back towards a major fault that has been interpreted to run through the entire property. The West Showing is geologically peculiar, lying in an ultramafic unit perpendicular to the remaining geology at Starr. Further geological mapping and ground truthing of this intrusive unit will be completed prior to the drill rig moving into this area to fine tune drilling targets.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 16, 2021 / Blue Lagoon Resources Inc. (the "Company") (CSE:BLLG; FSE:7BL; OTCQB:BLAGF) is pleased to report that the Company's toll milling partner, Nicola Mining ("Nicola"), has now sent a second shipment of concentrate made from the mineralized material from the Dome Mountain underground mine. The shipment, sent to Ocean Partners UK Limited, a leading European based commodities trading company with offices in six countries around the world, contained 96.7 dry tonnes of gold and silver concentrate grading 93 g/t Au and 468 g/t Ag. All concentrate assays were completed at Base Met Labs, an accredited metallurgical testing facility located in Kamloops, BC.

"Combined with the first 40 tonnes of concentrate that were shipped (see news release September 1, 2021), Nicola has now sent a total of 136.8 dry metric tonnes of concentrate having a total value of approximately CDN $823,000," said Rana Vig, President and CEO of Blue Lagoon Resources. "With an already healthy treasury of nearly $9 million, plus more than $4 million in-the-money warrants and no debt, the additional cash that we will receive from the sale of this concentrate will continue to ensure that we have a significant runway to execute on our aggressive exploration plans on a project that's been relatively unexplored and under the radar," he added.

Bags full of gold and silver concentrate made from Dome Mountain mineralized material are readied and await shipping at Nicola's milling facility in Merritt, B.C.

Trucking of the Dome Mountain mineralized material, which began on June 14, 2021, continues with 10 to 15 trucks leaving the mine site on a weekly basis. To date more than 110 - forty ton trucks - have been dispatched to Nicola, delivering over 4000 tonnes of the Dome Mountain high-grade mineralized material. Weekly shipments are expected to continue until all 6,000 plus tonnes of material have been removed from the underground mine and processed at the Nicola Mining mill (see news release July 7, 2021).

The scientific and technical data contained in this news release was approved by William Cronk, P.Geo., a qualified person as defined in NI 43-101 and a consultant to the Company.

Golden Dawn Receives Drill Permit for Lexington Property, Airborne Survey To Confirm Additional Targets – Historic Mining Camp – Greenwood BC

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 16, 2021 / Golden Dawn Minerals Inc., (TSXV:GOM)(FRANKFURT:3G8C)(OTC PINK:GDMRD), ("Golden Dawn" or the "Company"),…

Share this article:

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 16, 2021 / Golden Dawn Minerals Inc., (TSXV:GOM)(FRANKFURT:3G8C)(OTC PINK:GDMRD), ("Golden Dawn" or the "Company"), announces that it has received final approval for its drilling plan on the Lexington Property at the Greenwood Precious Metals project in southeastern BC. The drilling is anticipated to be executed in late October.

"In addition to the existing mining permit for the defined resource at Lexington, this is a next step in expanding the resource and addressing the potential of the mineralised parallel structure."

States Chris Anderson CEO

Photo showing scooptram at Lexington mine during de-watering phase.

The Lexington Multi-Year Area Based permit is for a total of 25 drill sites, with 14 sites approved for this year. Multiple holes can be drilled from each of the sites, so the permit allows for approximately 11,200 meters to be drilled this year out of a total of up to 20,000 metres.

Initial drilling is planned close to the Lexington Mine permit area where there is potential to extend the mineralized zones that define the known resource. Immediately northwest of the mine there is potential for a northwest extension of outlying resource blocks defined by intercepts in drill holes B93-6 and TG-81 (see table below). Drilling is also planned southeast of the mine where historic drill intercepts that indicate presence of significant widths of copper-gold mineralization along a kilometer-long trend that stretches south from the Lexington mine (as shown for R70-18 and TS-64 in the table below).
