Vancouver, Canada – TheNewswire – September 16, 2021Canada One Mining Corp. (the “Company” or “Canada One”) (TSXV:CONE) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement, effective date August 31st, 2021 (the “Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company will acquire the right to earn a 100% interest, subject to a 2% royalty, in the Franelle Copper Project (the “Project”, or the “Property”), a 31 square kilometre contiguous property located 90 kilometres northwest of Schefferville, Quebec, from Messrs. Fayz and Ramy Yacoub (the “Vendors”), arm’s length parties (the “Transaction”).

Key Highlights

  • – The Project hosts 4 mineralized zones: Franelle, Bennelle, Reuben and Beluet

    – The Franelle zone currently extends westwardly 2,600 metres along a 7000-metre gabbro dyke that has an average width of 60 to 75 metres

    – Three programs of diamond drilling at the Franelle zone intersected significant widths of copper mineralization, including:

    • – 2.42% copper over 13.7m within 32m of 1.12% copper

      – 0.86% copper over 25.3m within 50.3m of 0.51% copper;

      – 0.80% copper over 14.9m within 33.2m of 0.59% copper within 173.4m of 0.29% copper;

Project Overview

 

The Franelle Copper Project hosts 4 mineralized zones: Franelle, Bennelle, Beluet and Reuben.

The Franelle zone trends NNW 2600m along a 7000m long gabbro dyke with an average width of 60m to 75m. Mineralization consists of native copper, and copper oxides and sulfides with some potential supergene enrichment. Mineralization occurs as dissemination within the gabbro and with veins, veinlets and stockworks cutting the gabbro and the metasedimentary host rock. Three programs of diamond drilling tested the gabbo between the mid 1970’s and the mid-1990’s. A historic resource was calculated in 1976. The Company will to review the historic data before disclosure. (Diamond Drill Logs, Lac Musset Property, 1995 Energie et Ressources Naturelles Quebec Report GM 53794).

 

The Bennelle zone consists of veins, veinlets and disseminations of copper mineralization intersecting a gabbro sill intruded into arkosic red sandstone. The Franelle and Bennelle zones may lie along the same gabbro. Mineralization consists of native copper, and copper oxides and sulfides, and has been traced 450m along strike and ranges from 1m to 3m in thickness. Grab sample highlights include 2.06% copper, 1.73% copper and 1.68% copper. (Source: “Gitologie Des Indices De Cuivre Du Lac Musset, Fosse Du Labrador par B. Brassard (1984), Energie et Ressources Naturelles Quebec Report MB84-03).

 

Mineralization at the Beluet zone is hosted in an altered shear zone within sandstones in fault contact with gabbros and consists of malachite, azurite and chrysocolla accompanied by chalcopyrite.  The shear zone has been traced 50m along strike and is 5m thick. Grab sample highlights include: 6.15% copper and 4.83% copper. (Source: Metallic Deposit 23O/11-004 1995 Energie et Ressources  Naturelles Quebec)

 

The Reuben zone, a 30-metre wide stockwork of gabbro hosting calcite and epidote veins carrying chalcopyrite and malachite, and has been traced intermittently 425 metres along strike. Individual showings along the trend range from 60 metres by 6 metres to 15 metres by 1.5 metres. Chip sample highlights include: 4% copper and 6.9 g/t silver over 0.40 metres and 2.61% copper and 2.5 g/t silver over 2.5 metres.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Scorpio Gold Corporation (“Scorpio Gold” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SGN) is pleased to announce high-grade results from a hole drilled to test the on-strike and down-dip continuity of mineralization within and below the current underground mine workings at the 100% owned Goldwedge property, located in Nevada.

Drill hole GWUG21-015 returned 50.2 g/t gold over 5.6m (1.463 oz/ton over 18.5 ft), including a higher-grade intercept of 260g/t over 0.9m (7.607 oz/ton over 3.0 ft). The mineralization is hosted within sheared, interbedded limestones and argillites with quartz and calcite veining (Figures 1-4). The intersection is located ~7m on strike from historical 2011 drill hole GWUG-11-2, which reported 56.4g/t gold over 3.1m, including 91.6g/t over 1.5m. The mineralization is situated at an average depth of ~58m from topographic surface and is located ~350m northwest of the mine portal. Drilling to further test the extent of high-grade mineralization along strike and at depth below the existing mine workings is ongoing. Four additional holes recently completed at the same drill station as GWUG21-015 are being processed for analysis. The planned meterage for this drill program is 2066 meters with 874 meters (42%) completed to date.

To date, the Goldwedge deposit has been traced over a strike length of ~350m from near surface to a vertical depth of 160m. The southwestern extent of drilling at the Goldwedge deposit lies 100m northwest of Scorpio Gold’s most northerly exploration drill hole in the West Pit area of the Manhattan Mine Property. Future drilling will test the Company’s structural interpretation that mineralization at Goldwedge could connect with mineralization in the West Pit area, where drilling has indicated a 300m continuous trend of mineralization from as shallow as 19m from surface. Collectively, the Goldwedge, West Pit and East Pit areas outline a mineralized trend along the Reliance Structural Zone ~2 km in strike length. This trend continues a further 3 km southeast to Scorpio Gold’s Keystone-Jumbo project area.

TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WM) (“Wallbridge” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the resource expansion drill program on its Martiniere gold property (“Martiniere” or the “Property”), (see Fig. 1) testing the depth and along strike extensions of known zones at Martiniere has intersected significant mineralization. This new mineralization is outside of the previously known mineralized envelope and will not be included in the upcoming updated mineral resource estimate currently underway. Due to the success of the ongoing 10,000-metre Phase 1 program, a more substantial drill program will be reviewed for 2022.

Since the start of our drilling program in July at Martiniere, 12 holes totaling approximately 8,000 metres have been completed.

Highlights of assay results received to date include:

  MDE-21-326 3.68 g/t Au over 22.50 metres, including
      6.45 g/t Au over 5.00 metres
    in the extension of the Bug Lake North shoot, approximately 100 metres down-plunge of the previously known extent (see Figs. 2, 3, 4, and 5);
       
  MDE-21-328 2.21 g/t Au over 36.60 metres, including
      14.15 g/t Au over 3.10 metres, and
      10.18 g/t Au over 2.00 metres
    50 metres south-west of the Bug Lake Porphyry, approximately 140 metres vertically undercutting the historic intersections of the Bug Lake South zone (see Figs. 2, 3, 4, and 6);
       
  MDE-21-330 3.83 g/t Au over 10.50 metres, including
      6.84 g/t Au over 4.60 metres
    in the extension of the Bug Lake South shoot, approximately 150 metres down-plunge from the previous historic intersection and 230 m to the southeast of MDE-21-328, reported today, with the area in between remaining open (see Figs. 2, 3, 4, and 7);

Assays for four of the 12 holes completed to date have been received. Final assay results are available for MDE-21-326 to MDE-21-328 and MDE-21-330, while only partial results have so far been received for MDE-21-329.

“Our initial drilling has confirmed that Martiniere has excellent potential to become the Company’s second gold asset that can, in the near term, be brought to a meaningful resource size,” stated Marz Kord, President & CEO of Wallbridge. “Additional drilling is needed to assess the ultimate size potential of the Martiniere Gold System through expansion of the known footprint. In addition, there are numerous high-quality targets with discovery potential throughout the property that we are eager to test in future drill programs.”

Martiniere Drill Program Underway

As announced previously (see Wallbridge News Release dated July 22, 2021), Wallbridge mobilized a drill rig at the end of July to Martiniere to commence an approximately 10,000-metre Phase 1 drill program. To date, approximately 8,000 metres in 12 drill holes have been completed as part of this program.

The Phase 1 drill program is focusing on the following objectives:

1) near-surface targets to extend known mineralized zones along strike with the objective of increasing the open pit constrained portion of the mineral resource (see Fig. 3);
2) targets at depth to follow known high-grade shoots to expand the underground, high-grade resource potential (see Fig. 4);
3) high-priority geological-geophysical targets and isolated historical gold intersections property-wide to discover new mineralized gold zones (see Fig. 2).

So far, all of the drilling has been within the known 2.0 by 1.8-kilometre footprint of the Martiniere Gold System, testing various targets related to objectives 1 and 2. These objectives will continue to be the focus for the remainder of the 2021 drill program. Seasonal drilling logistics are being evaluated for the feasibility of also testing some of the high priority property-wide targets (objective 3) this year, or postponing those to the Spring of 2022.

Visual results of the 12 drill holes completed so far have been very encouraging, with mineralization typical to the Martiniere Gold System intersected in the majority of drill holes, including two holes filling in an otherwise untested area linking the Martiniere West and Martiniere Central Zones. Three of the first four drill holes have returned significant, >40 metal factor (metal factor = Au grade multiplied by thickness) intersections.

Assay results of 4 drill holes of the 2021 exploration drill program are reported in the Table and Figures below. All figures and a table with drill hole information of recently completed holes are posted on the Company’s website under “Current Program” of the Martiniere Project page. Assay results from an additional 8 drill holes are currently pending and will be announced once they are available.

About the Martiniere Gold Property

Martiniere is located within Wallbridge’s 910 km2 Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend land package, which extends over 97 kilometres in an East-West direction along the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone (“SLDZ”), a major structure that controlled the emplacement of Kirkland Lake’s Detour Lake deposit, 45 kilometres west of Martiniere, and the Company’s Fenelon Gold System, located 30 kilometres to the east of Martiniere (see Fig. 1).

Gold on the Martiniere project was discovered in 1997 by Cyprus Canada Inc. and subsequently the property was explored by International Taurus Resources Inc. and American Bonanza. Balmoral Resources Ltd. (“Balmoral”) acquired Martiniere in November 2010 and, from 2011 to 2017, drilled over 130,000 metres and reported an initial mineral resource estimate in March 2018. Their work expanded the historical intercepts on the project into the Bug and Martiniere West gold deposits and identified several additional zones and showings, including VMS mineralization.

The Martiniere Gold System extends over a known area of approximately 2.0 by 1.8 kilometres and has been traced by sporadic drill holes down to a vertical depth of 700 metres; most drilling, however, has focused only on the top 300 metres from surface. The gold system is divided into the Bug deposits (Bug Lake North and South), which were emplaced along the Bug Lake Porphyry; the Martiniere West deposit, hosted by a gabbroic intrusion; and other less explored mineralized zones along strike or near these deposits (Horsefly Zone, Central Zone, NW Extension and others) (see Fig. 3). The Martiniere Gold System is most likely part of the orogenic class of gold deposits and high-grade, structurally controlled gold mineralization is generally surrounded by a broader, lower grade halo.

Balmoral reported a, now historic, mineral resource estimate for the Martinière project in March 2018, which included separate estimates for the Bug and Martinière West gold deposits for a total indicated resources of approximately 591,000 ounces and inferred resources of approximately 53,000 ounces of gold (see details of the historic resource estimate on the Company’s website).

These “mineral resources” are deemed historic and should not be relied upon. The qualified persons for the March 2021 Technical Report (see Technical Report filed on March 18, 2021 on SEDAR) have not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Although they comply with current NI 43-101 requirements and follow CIM definition standards, they are included for illustrative purposes only and the Company is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources.

The Company has retained InnovExplo to complete an updated mineral resource estimate on the Property which will be published along with the Fenelon maiden mineral resource estimate in October 2021.

2021 Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend Drill Program

The drilling completed at Martiniere is part of the Company’s approximately 150,000 -metre 2021 drill program, which is mainly focusing on resource and exploration drilling at Fenelon, with approximately 20,000 to 25,000 metres devoted to regional exploration on the Company’s district-scale, underexplored land package on the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend.

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 26, 2021) – Aurelius Minerals Inc. (TSXV: AUL) (OTCQB: AURQF) (the “Company” or “Aurelius”) is pleased to report high-grade gold results from the Tangier and Forest Hill Projects in Nova Scotia, Canada. The Company recently completed a review of 10 historical, NQ sized drill core, that had been drilled from surface by diamond drill. Five of the holes are from the Tangier project and five holes are from the Forest Hill project. All holes were relogged and comprehensively sampled to identify overlooked gold mineralization. A total of 1,242 samples were taken with 1,220 samples from previously unsampled core and 22 samples from previously assayed core. Core from both projects was pulled from the secure Aurelius exploration facilities at the Tangier and Aureus East project sites.

The Tangier and Forest Hill projects are in the prolific Meguma gold district of Nova Scotia. The Tangier project is located within the historical gold mining community of the same name and is located approximately 65km east of Halifax. The Forest Hill project, also a past gold producer, is approximately 150km east of Halifax and 22km from the town of Sherbrooke (Figure 1).

Highlights from infill sampling programs:

Tangier Project

  • 4 of 5 holes sampled revealed significant gold mineralization
  • Hole TAN-19-01 (drilled in 2019)
    • Multiple new near surface high grade gold intersections
    • 302 grams per tonne gold, (“g/t Au”) over 0.43 metres (“m”), from 37.55m
    • 23.5 g/t Au over 0.31m, from 54.07m
    • 6.49 g/t Au over 0.28m, from 92.6m
  • Hole TAN-19-02 (drilled in 2019)
    • 32.9 g/t Au over 0.29m, from 20.35m
  • Hole TAN-14-02 (drilled in 2014)
    • 4.66 g/t Au over 0.9m, from 88.0m
    • 9.77 g/t Au over 0.45m, from 89.0m
  • Hole TAN14-03 (drilled in 2014)
    • 14.7 g/t Au over 1.0m, from 36.4m

Forest Hill Project

  • 3 of 5 holes sampled revealed significant gold mineralization
  • Hole FH-18-02
    • 100 g/t Au over 0.3m, from 96.8m

Details for the infill sampling program are included in Tables 1-3 below.

CEO of Aurelius, Mark N.J. Ashcroft, P.Eng stated, “Our reconnaissance exploration work, at both Tangier and Forest Hill, involved significant research into historical data and assessment reports, culminating in a review and the relogging of drill core from both projects, which were located at our secure storage facilities. We are very pleased to again discover unreported gold mineralization, and significant new gold intersections, previously overlooked by the prior operators. As we discovered during our initial reconnaissance exploration of the Aureus East and West projects, the assets acquired in Nova Scotia continue to show significant potential and opportunity as we apply a different methodology in evaluating the projects.”

Our team has remained focused on adding value by finding gold where others have yet to look. We have explored beyond the standard approach and by pushing these conventional limits we have unlocked significant potential to increase our gold resources. Just a year into the programs, we are very well positioned for the next phases and to continue on our pathway of discovery,” stated Jeremy Niemi, Vice President, Exploration.

The Tangier Project

The Tangier property has had a very long history, with gold first identified in 1860. Several campaigns of mining and exploration have been conducted since then, however, little modern exploration and almost no exploration has occurred outside of the traditional gold veins.

The Aurelius infill sampling campaign at Tangier involved reviewing five of 216 holes drilled at the project to relog, photograph and identify potentially overlooked gold mineralization through rigorous sampling. The holes were selected from three key areas at the project, the western extension of the deposit, the Strawberry Hill gold zone and a hole drilled north of the deposit (Figure 2). Multiple new high-grade gold intervals were identified along the western extension of the Tangier deposit within the three holes selected in the area. Holes TAN-19-01, TAN-19-02 and T14-02 are along the margin of the deposit, which was last bulk-sampled in 1999 from now flooded underground openings. The deposit extends from surface to a depth of approximately 300m and is 500m along strike in east-west direction. It is made up of at least 18 of south-dipping and parallel gold in quartz veins hosted within slate (argillite) and meta-greywacke beds. Traditionally the focus of mining and exploration concentrated on the quartz veins and the often large nuggets of gold associated with the high-grades. The infill sampling identified gold in the surrounding wall rock to the veins and opens a new opportunity to expand the gold resource at the project, beyond extending the mineralization at depth and along strike.

Hole T14-02 was selected due to its proximity to the Strawberry Hill gold zone, which is on trend of the Tangier deposit and 750m away to the east. The area has multiple gold hits greater than 5 g/t Au from multiple parallel gold in quartz veins, similar to the Tangier deposit. T14-02 infill sampling revealed four new intervals of gold mineralization between 73.0m and 149.0m down the hole. In all cases the new mineralization was due to sampling of host sediments adjacent to gold veins (Figure 3).

Hole TAN-14-06 did not reveal new gold mineralization, and the original target was north of the deposit and this hole may not have been optimally oriented or positioned. There are historical abandoned mine openings reported in the vicinity of the hole, which is encouraging for gold potential in the area.

Overall, the Company is encouraged by the high rate of success from the limited reconnaissance sampling program and is considering an expanded program to further identify areas of opportunity for gold resource growth. The Tangier gold exploration program is focused on growing the inferred mineral resource reported in the “Technical Report on the Tangier Gold Property” dated June 1, 2020, prepared by Greg Mosher, P.Geo, MSc, applied, of Global Mineral Resource Services and filed under the Company’s profile at SEDAR. The Tangier Gold Property technical report is also available on the Company’s website.

The Tangier project Mineral Resource currently includes 493,000 tonnes at a grade of 5.9 g/t Au which includes 93,000 ounces in the Inferred Mineral category (see Table 4). The Mineral Resource is limited to a depth of 300m and a strike length of approximately 500m, however gold mineralization in drilling has been confirmed over 1,500m along strike and very limited drilling has occurred below the deposit. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the Mineral Resources estimated will be converted into Mineral Reserves. Inferred Mineral Resources are based on limited drilling which suggests the greatest uncertainty for a resource estimate and that geological continuity is only implied. Additional drilling will be required to verify geological and mineralization continuity and it is reasonable that most of the Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources

The Forest Hill Project

Infill sampling at Forest Hill reviewed 5 of 379 holes drilled at the project to relog, photograph and identify potentially overlooked gold mineralization through rigorous sampling. Multiple zones were identified with 3 of the 5 holes intersecting new gold mineralization. Most significant was the zone in hole FH-18-02 where a narrow bedding parallel vein, with visible gold, was overlooked. This sample graded 100 g/t Au and extended 0.3m from 96.8m to 97.1m depth.

Forest Hill was also mined and explored in the past via underground openings which are now capped and flooded. The site was rehabilitated in 1998.

The limited reconnaissance sampling program is very encouraging and is considering an expanded program to further identify areas of opportunity for gold resource growth. The Forest Hill gold exploration program is focused on growing the Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource reported in the “Technical Report on the Forest Hill Gold Property” dated June 1, 2020, prepared by Greg Mosher, P.Geo, MSc, applied, of Global Mineral Resource Services and filed under the Company’s profile at SEDAR. The Forest Hill Gold Property technical report is also available on the Company’s website.

The Mineral Resource at Forest Hill currently includes Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources. There are 322,000 tonnes at a grade of 7.1 g/t Au which includes 73,000 ounces in the indicated category as well as 905,000 tonnes at a grade of 7.1 g/t Au including 208,000 ounces in the inferred category (see Table 5). The Mineral Resource is limited to a depth of 300m and a strike length of approximately 2,300m and remains open at depth and along strike. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the Mineral Resources estimated will be converted into Mineral Reserves. Inferred Mineral Resources are based on limited drilling which suggests the greatest uncertainty for a resource estimate and that geological continuity is only implied. Additional drilling will be required to verify geological and mineralization continuity and it is reasonable that most of the Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources.

The Aurelius exploration approach involves stepping back and taking a wider view of opportunities for new gold mineralization and part of that is considering potentially overlooked gold in existing drilling. In recent years, exploration for gold in the Meguma district has expanded from the traditional high-grade gold in quartz veins and into the wall rock surrounding the veins. This approach has proven successful at identifying overlooked gold mineralization at all four of the projects in the Meguma district. In August, September and October 2020, the Company released results from assays of previously unsampled core at Aureus West and Aureus East as highlighted below.

COVID-19 Precautions

Aurelius has developed and implemented compliant precautions and procedures that are in line with guidelines for the Province of Nova Scotia. Protocols were put in place to ensure the safety of our employees and contractors, thereby reducing the potential for community contact and spreading of the virus.

Qualified Person and Analytical Procedures

Mr. Jeremy Niemi, P.Geo. and Vice President, Exploration of Aurelius and the Company’s Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this release.

Individual drill core samples are labeled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples are then placed into durable rice bags and then shipped by courier for analyses to ALS Geochemistry, Moncton, New Brunswick. Sample preparation occurs at ALS in Moncton where samples are weighed, dried, crushing one kilogram to 70 percent less than two millimeters and then pulverized to create a one-kilogram sample with 85 percent less than seventy-five microns. Potential high-grade gold samples are sent for metallic screen fire assay and remaining material is assayed for 50-gram fire assay and samples grading more than 100 parts per million have a gravimetric finish performed. When visible gold is encountered the Company samples both halves of the core. The remaining coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage if further work or verification is needed. The Company inserted control samples (accredited gold standards, blanks and duplicates) at least every 20 samples and monitors the control samples inserted by ALS.

Although Aurelius believes its expectations are based upon reasonable assumptions and has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the Mineral Resources will be converted to Mineral Reserves. Inferred Mineral Resources are based on limited drilling which suggests the greatest uncertainty for a resource estimate and that geological continuity is only implied. Additional drilling will be required to verify geological and mineralization continuity and it is reasonable that most of the Inferred Mineral resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources.

The Company provides forward-looking information for the purpose of conveying information about current expectations and plans relating to the future and readers are cautioned that such statements may not be appropriate for other purposes. By its nature, this information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of Aurelius to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including but not limited to: risks related to difficulties in executing exploration programs at the Mikwam, Lipton and Aureus Gold Properties on the Company’s proposed schedules and within its cost and scheduling estimates, whether due to weather conditions, availability or interruption of power supply, mechanical equipment performance problems, natural disasters or pandemics in the areas where it operates, the integration of acquisition; risks related to current global financial conditions including market reaction to the coronavirus outbreak; competition within the industry; actual results of current exploration activities; environmental risks; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future price of gold; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; mine development and operating risks; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining approvals or financing; risks related to indebtedness and the service of such indebtedness, as well as those factors, risks and uncertainties identified and reported in Aurelius’ public filings under Aurelius’ SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. Although Aurelius has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Forward-looking statements are made as of the date hereof and, accordingly, are subject to change after such date. Aurelius disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise unless required by law.
