Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 15, 2021) - Canterra Minerals Corporation (TSXV: CTM) (OTCQB: CTMCF) ("Canterra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the definition of several new drill targets stemming from the results of the summer 2021 exploration program at the Wilding Gold project ("Wilding"). Canterra now looks towards the start of its fall drill program to test these new targets.

Highlights:

  • Surface rock and trench sampling has identified new drill targets in the vicinity the Red Ochre and Elm gold zones
    • Six grab samples collected approximately 175 m northeast of the Elm Zone assayed between 0.06 g/t Au and 4.61 g/t Au
    • At Red Ochre, grab and trench samples outline two clusters of gold mineralization, with values up to 0.8 g/t Au, located approximately 130 m to the south and 200 m to the southwest of the main Red Ochre Zone
  • Initial assay results from till sampling has identified a new gold target in the northeast of Wilding with two samples returning 113 and 134 ppb Au and nine samples assaying greater than 20 ppb Au
  • 4 new drill targets identified through mapping and geophysical interpretation in combination with ground truthing over the summer

"Our summer exploration program has been critical for evaluating the prospectivity of the Wilding and Noel-Paul projects. Prospecting and trenching around the Red Ochre target has showed that gold mineralization is extensive within the volcanic units, with gold grades within the broader Red Ochre target area in the same order of magnitude as those from the original Red Ochre discovery trench. We now have clear drill targets that will aim to expand the Red Ochre Zone this fall," stated Chris Pennimpede, President & CEO of Canterra.

Canterra Minerals will host a live webinar with Adelaide Capital September 20, 2021:

Red Ochre and Elm Zone Targets
Trenching at Red Ochre has identified strongly altered and mineralized feldspar porphyry with channel samples one metre in length returning up to 0.8 g/t Au. This trench extends known Red Ochre mineralization 130m southwest of the original 2017 discovery trench. Prospecting of high priority targets outlined by GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (see news release, July 14, 2021) has identified three zones of gold-bearing float, two of which have been located near the Red Ochre Zone, and one cluster of five boulders lies approximately 200m to the southwest. Gold values for five grab samples ranged from 0.05 g/t Au to 0.62 g/t Au. The second cluster of six boulders lies about 150m south of Red Ochre and approximately 150m east of the first cluster. Grab samples from the six boulders assayed from trace to 0.46 g/t Au. These results are consistent with reported values from the 2017 and 2021 diamond-drill programs (see news release, April 28, 2021), and extend the Red Ochre target by several hundred metres to the south-southwest.

At the Elm Zone, a cluster of gold-bearing boulders was located approximately 120m northeast of the original Elm Zone trench, in an area where thick till prevented historic trenching from exposing bedrock. Gold results from 5 grab samples returned gold values ranging from trace to 4.6 g/t Au. The closest drill hole (WL-21-44) lies approximately 100m to the southwest. These new boulders extend the Elm target area approximately 150m to the northeast and provide additional support for historical gold-in-till in the same area.

New Gold Target
Initial assay results from 214 till samples identified a new gold target in the northeast portion of the Wilding property, with nine of the samples assaying greater than 20 ppb Au, and two samples returning 113 and 134 ppb Au. Based on the interpretation of the airborne magnetics, this new target may represent the northeastern extension of the Valentine Lake Shear Zone, the major structure controlling mineralization at the adjacent Valentine Gold Project (Marathon Gold). Follow-up will test for structurally-controlled mineralization based on this hypothesis. These 214 samples represent a portion of the 1,219 till samples that have been collected from the Wilding and East Alder areas during the summer of 2021. The majority of the sample assay results are still pending (1,005 samples).

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.
