TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 8, 2021 / Eskay Mining Corp. (“Eskay” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ESK)(OTCQX:ESKYF)(FSE:KN7)(WKN:A0YDPM) is pleased to announce the first assay results from its 2021 diamond drill campaign at its 100% controlled Consolidated Eskay precious metal rich volcanogenic massive sulfide (“VMS”) project, British Columbia.

Drill Highlights:

  • 26.0m grading 1.9 gpt Au and 367.7 gpt Ag (6.8 gpt Au eq) within 47.77m grading 1.3 gpt Au and 287.4 gpt Ag (5.2 gpt Au eq) within 140.28m grading 0.9 gpt Au and 123.2 gpt Ag (2.6 gpt Au eq) in hole TV21-63.
  • 24.09m grading 2.2 gpt Au and 374.0 gpt Ag (7.2 gpt Au eq) within 44.41m grading 1.5 gpt Au and 236.0 gpt Ag (4.7 gpt Au eq) within 92.3m grading 1.1 gpt Au and 124.0 gpt Ag (2.7 gpt Au eq) in hole TV21-54.
  • 14.17m grading 3.3 gpt Au and 37.2 gpt Ag (3.8 gpt Au eq) within 30.41m grading 2.1 gpt Au and 25.9 gpt Ag (4.7 gpt Au eq) in hole TV21-47.
  • 8.70m grading 3.4 gpt Au and 115.4 gpt Ag (5.0 gpt Au eq) in hole TV21-52.
  • Eskay Mining’s 2021 drill program picked up where diamond drill results from its 2020 program at the TV deposit, located approximately 13 km south of Skeena’s Eskay Creek mine, left off. These five holes (results presented in the table below), suggest the presence of an extensive VMS feeder zone at TV. Mineralization remains open along strike to the north and south and down dip to the east (Figures 1, 2 and 3).
  • Notably, these results are exclusively from stockwork feeder mineralization and do not include intercepts through the upper and lower massive sulfide horizons discussed in a Company news release dated October 13, 2021. As discussed in that release, Eskay Mining believes the TV deposit is comprised of a stacked VMS system, and therefore, these intercepts are interpreted to be from the stockwork feeder system that fed the upper massive sulfide deposit discovered in drilling late in the season. Assays from massive sulfide mineralization are awaited.
  • Drill holes TV21-47, TV21-48, TV21-52, and TV21-54 all intercept stratigraphy approximately perpendicular to bedding, so down hole thicknesses are approximately true. Hole TV21-63 drilled obliquely along strike of the stringer zone and successfully demonstrates continuity of Au and Ag grades in an area of older wide-spaced drilling.
  • Rock hosting stockwork mineralization is dominantly dacite breccia overlain by carbonaceous mudstone (Figures 4, 5 and 6). Both lithologies are intensely silicified, consistent with a subseafloor position proximal to an overlying volcanogenic massive sulfide body that formed on the seafloor.
  • Eskay Mining completed approximately 23,500 m of diamond drilling in 98 holes at its Consolidated Eskay precious metal rich VMS project in 2021. Assay turn around is expected to continue to be slow due to a very active drill season in the region as well as shortages of personnel at the laboratory. Further assays will be released as they become available.

“We are thrilled with recent diamond drill results from the stockwork zone at the TV deposit,” commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, technical advisor and director of Eskay Mining. “These first five holes indicate there is a large stockwork feeder under the upper massive sulfide deposit discovered in drilling late in the season. The 92.3m intercept grading 2.7 gpt Au eq in hole TV21-54 is thought to represent the true thickness of this large system, open along strike and down dip. We will be anxious to see return of further assays from the TV stockwork, the upper and lower massive sulfide horizons, as well as the other VMS systems drilled by Eskay this season. These results are a great start.”

“The TV deposit is showing all the signs of a textbook VMS system”, commented Dr. John DeDecker, Eskay Mining’s VP of Exploration. “Identifying the VMS feeder zone above the Lower Massive Sulfide Zone indicated our stacked VMS deposit concept was on the right track. Through close examination of the stratigraphy and hydrothermal alteration in the feeder zone, our team was able to predict the location of the Upper Massive Sulfide Zone before it was drilled. It is encouraging that assays for the stockwork mineralization show robust continuity of Au and Ag grades. I look forward to results from both massive sulfide horizons.”

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE U.S. OR OVER U.S. NEWSWIRES

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE:SIXW) (OTCQB:ATURF) (FSE:AHUH) (“Sixth Wave or SIXW or Company”) and Rio2 Limited (“Rio2) (TSXV:RIO) (OTCQX: RIOFF) (BVL: RIO) are pleased to announce the signing of a contract (“Contract”) which provides for the continuation of testing of SIXW’s patented IXOS® purification polymer (the “IXOS® Mining Technology”) at Rio2’s Fenix Gold Project in Chile using Rio2’s nearby Lince Infrastructure facilities. The Contract follows successful completion of testing done on representative samples of ore from Rio2’s Fenix Gold Project at Sixth Wave’s Salt Lake City, Utah facility undertaken pursuant to the non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) entered into between Sixth Wave and Rio2 in September 2020. See Sixth Wave’s and Rio2’s joint press release dated September 14, 2020 for additional information regarding the LOI. The move to near-site testing represents a significant step forward, and investment by the two companies, in the trial test project.

Under the terms of the LOI, Rio2 sent representative ore samples from its Fenix Gold Project to Sixth Wave for testing and analysis. The testing confirmed that IXOS® Mining Technology outperformed activated carbon on several key metrics including gold adsorption efficiency, ease of elution, and overall adsorption kinetics. A comprehensive costs/benefit analysis was performed using the data obtained in the laboratory testing along with ongoing testing performed by Rio2 on activated carbon as part of their pilot operations. The analysis also detailed the expected plant size, potential CAPEX and OPEX savings, and expansion capability/pathways. IXOS® polymer is reusable and the potential for favorable usage life over activated carbon especially with scaling agents in the mine’s water source provided sufficient encouragement that the project should proceed to the next phase of test work.

Sixth Wave will perform recovery tests from leach solution using its IXOS® Mining Technology and the leaching columns already commissioned and utilized by Rio2 to evaluate adsorption kinetics and other parameters. Testing is expected to start in Q4 2021, post winter months, assuming that current COVID-19 restrictions in Chile will abate. The testing will include 50 days of on-site operation of the system under a variety of testing scenarios to validate IXOS® performance and determine additional details regarding the cost/benefit analysis. Tests with a parallel set of activated carbon columns will allow for direct comparison between the two adsorbents under common testing conditions. Potential positive environmental impact and reduced carbon footprint (CO2 emissions) of using IXOS® over activated carbon for the process plant will also be explored during this phase of the project. The IXOS® Mining Technology operates at significantly reduced power consumption with fewer reagents than activated carbon. Therefore, opportunities exist for enhancing Rio2’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) posture should IXOS® Mining Technology continue to show advantages in overall process efficiency.

Consistent with the terms of the LOI, Rio2 will pay travel expenses, external test work, and the operation of the pilot equipment during the test. The SIXW team will be lead by Mr. Nicol Newton, Sixth Wave’s Director of Technical Services and a 20 year gold mining veteran. Mr. Newton will be accompanied by Dr. Glen Southard, one of the inventors and developers of IXOS® Mining Technology. Sixth Wave will provide in-kind labor to support testing and analysis and all of the testing apparatus/pilot equipment for use during the project. The field kit will be returned to SIXW upon completion of the pilot.

Upon successful completion and receipt of positive results from the column test pilot program, the companies will move to a second near site testing phase incorporating the IXOS® Mining Technology into a long term pilot plant that will operate alongside the currently planned carbon adsorption circuit, This will provide long-term operational data including the determination of the useful life of the IXOS® polymer beads, and specifications for full-scale implementation pegged to the mine operation and potential future mine expansion plans.

Sixth Wave continues to be very positive on the project and working relationship with Rio2. Moving to near-site testing with a solid and well focused test plan will validate and extend the laboratory testing already completed and help both companies make defensible, data driven decisions about next steps toward adoption,” noted Dr. Jon Gluckman, President and CEO of Sixth Wave. He went on to say, “We have really been impressed by the Rio2 team and the investment in time and resources that they are making to further this program. We will continue to do our part to deliver a positive return on this investment through our contributions to the cost sharing and delivering tangible benefits to Fenix Gold Project.”

“Rio2 is always looking to embrace and trial new technology with the objective of bringing enhanced value to our stakeholders through the reduced capex/opex opportunities that innovative technologies may bring. The Fenix Gold Project is currently the largest undeveloped gold heap leach project in the Americas and we look forward to working alongside Sixth Wave during the development phase of the project,stated Mr. Alex Black, President and CEO of Rio2 Limited.

Subject to specific carve outs, the Debenture shall have first ranking security over the assets of Rio Grande including a pledge over the shares of Shafter Properties Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Shafter”).

The Company will be closing each of the Unit Private Placement and Debenture Private Placement subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The net proceeds of both Private Placements will provide additional contingency funding for the restart of the Company’s wholly-owned Revenue Virginius (RV) Mine as well as funding for growth of the resource base at the RV Mine which may enable the Company to grow future production volumes. Net proceeds will also be used for working capital and general and administrative expenses including potential opportunities to advance its wholly owned Shafter Project in light of the current silver price.

Finder’s fees to third parties may be paid in certain circumstances as part of the Unit Private Placement and the Debenture Private Placement, as permitted by the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and in accordance with applicable securities laws.  The Debentures, Units, Conversion Shares, Warrants, Warrant Shares and any securities issued in connection with any finder’s fees, will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day after the date of issuance thereof.

The Units and Debentures will be issued on a private placement basis pursuant to applicable exemptions from prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. The common shares and Warrants (and any common shares issued pursuant to the Warrants, as applicable) forming the Units and the common shares and Debenture Warrants issued upon conversion of the Debentures and any securities issued in connection therewith will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance of the Units and Debentures.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities in the United States nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States unless registered under the 1933 Act and any applicable securities laws of any state of the United States or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements is available.

CAUTIONARY NOTES

This press release contains forward looking statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws. The use of any of the words “anticipate”, “plan”, “continue”, “expect”, “estimate”, “objective”, “may”, “will”, “project”, “should”, “predict”, “potential” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward looking statements. In particular, this press release contains forward looking statements concerning, without limitation, statements relating to the Private Placement (including with respect to the timing of closing of the Private Placement). Although the Company believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward looking statements because the Company cannot give any assurance that they will prove correct. Since forward looking statements address future events and conditions, they involve inherent assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of assumptions, factors and risks. These assumptions and risks include, but are not limited to, assumptions and risks associated with the receipt of regulatory or shareholder approvals, and risks related to the state of financial markets or future metals prices.

Management has provided the above summary of risks and assumptions related to forward looking statements in this press release in order to provide readers with a more comprehensive perspective on the Company’s future operations. The Company’s actual results, performance or achievement could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these forward looking statements and, accordingly, no assurance can be given that any of the events anticipated by the forward looking statements will transpire or occur, or if any of them do so, what benefits the Company will derive from them. These forward looking statements are made as of the date of this press release, and, other than as required by applicable securities laws, the Company disclaims any intent or obligation to update publicly any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
