VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 14, 2021 / FALCON GOLD CORP. (TSXV:FG)(GR:3FA)(OTCQB:FGLDF); (“Falcon” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has doubled the size of the Hope Brook project making us one of the larger land holders in the Hope Brook Camp. Falcon has now staked a total of 1660 claims totaling 41,500 hectares which are strategically located and contiguous to First Mining Gold, Benton-Sokoman, and Marvel Discovery Corp. Of paramount importance Sokoman made recent headlines on its lithium pegmatite discovery at Hope Brook less than 400 meters from our newly expanded property boundary. The highly prospective ground held by Falcon shows various lithium clusters that may extend onto our ground. Falcon is currently evaluating the data from the government reports which include high resolution radiometric and magnetic surveys previously completed.

Falcon’s Chief Executive Officer, Karim Rayani commented, “This newly expanded ground could not have happened at a more precise time, Benton- Sokoman just announced today 2.2 km long .85 km- wide meter dyke system called the “Kraken Pegmatite System Swarm”. Identifying fine grain spodumene in several key areas. Of key importance they note the area is wide open for expansion, less than 400 meters from our property boundary and looks to be a parallel structure. This speaks to the multi-commodity nature of the large land package we have acquired. Falcon’s land is situated in a very active structural corridor giving us a tremendous opportunity for finding the next potential discovery in this camp. We now have 41,500 Hectares under Falcon’s control at Hope Brook.”

Within this immediate area, the most significant deposit is the Hope Brook gold mine which was in production from 1987 to 1997 producing 752,163 ounces of gold. The Hope Brook now owned by First Mining has since been optioned to Big Ridge Exploration who have outlined an additional 6.33 million tonnes at an average grade of 4.68 g/t Au for 954,000 ounces of gold in the indicated and inferred categories (https://firstmininggold.com/projects/partnerships/hope-brook-project/).

Falcon’s land position straddles both the eastern and western extents of recent land acquisitions by the Benton-Sokoman JV partnership with Falcon now controlling areas of considerable structural complexity marked by large scale fold and fault structures which provide important structural controls (traps) for gold mineralization within this area and potentially lithium now.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 25, 2021) – Discovery Harbour Resources Corp. (TSXV: DHR) (OTC Pink: DCHRF) (FSE: 4GW) (the “Company” or “Discovery Harbour“) announces that the first of five drill holes results have been received from the Company’s Caldera drill program. Selected core from each of the five holes has been sent for analysis, with the next results expected in late November. The initial drill hole, CP21-01, has anomalous gold results up to 324 parts per billion gold over 1.4 metres. The drillhole intersected primarily volcanic tuffs, moderate to strong propylitic and argillic / sericitic alteration as well as multiple fault zones.

The Company completed drilling a total of slightly over 1900 metres, testing five low sulphidation epithermal gold targets (see map below) on the Caldera Property. Each hole was deeper than any previous drilling on Caldera and each site was selected to test the boiling zone, typically found at approximately 300+ metres below the paleo-surface, where precious metals are concentrated. The Caldera gold property lies in a fertile gold region at the intersection of the Walker Lane and Northumberland Gold Belts northwest of Tonopah, Nevada.

Taranis Discovers New Zone at Thor, Extending Deposit Under Thor’s Ridge with Thor-220 (6.42% Combined Cu+Pb+Zn, 253.8 g/t Ag, 0.61 g/t Au Over 3.96 m)

Estes Park, Colorado – TheNewswire – October 25th, 2021 Taranis Resources Inc. (“Taranis) (TSXV:TRO) (OTC:TNREF) is excited to report on exploration progress at its 100%-owned “Thor” silver, gold, zinc, and copper polymetallic deposit located near Trout Lake in southeastern British Columbia. In summer 2021, Taranis drilled a total of ten holes testing the Ridge Target; only the first three (Thor-218, 219 and 220) are discussed here. Details of the remaining drill holes will be discussed as assay results become available to the company.

 

A new discovery was made testing the Ridge Target (henceforth referred to as the Thunder Zone), located north and east of the Blue Bell Zone. The Thunder Zone was discovered on the south side of Thor’s Ridge, underneath a paleo-landslide which has detached a portion of Thor’s Ridge. This paleo-landslide was not a recognized aspect of the area’s geomorphology until 2021 due to its concealment under undisturbed forest growth in the area.

 

Lead-up to Discovery Hole Thor-220

 

Drilling on Thor’s Ridge is a challenging process because of steep terrain and technicalities of the overburden resulting from the paleo-landslide.

 

The 2021 season’s inaugural drill hole (Thor-218, -450) on the Ridge Target was abandoned at a depth of 48.8m due to excessive bit wear. An assessment of the difficult ground conditions indicated that a landslide, clearly visible on Lidar imagery, was responsible for the difficult ground conditions. Subsequent deep penetrating electrical tomography mapping of the area confirmed the presence of a large conductive landslide that ranged in thickness from 30-35 m, fully concealing bedrock at the base of the landslide.

 

Once drilling methods were modified, a drill hole (Thor-219, -600) penetrated through the landslide and reached bedrock at a depth of 29.6 m. This hole intersected a new weakly mineralized quartz vein from 56.54 to 59.77 m (0.01% Cu, 0.16 % Pb, 0.57% Zn, 5.72 g/t Ag and 0.37 g/t Au). Of note was a fault on top of the quartz vein that contained slickensided pyrite. The hole emitted a pungent smell of hydrogen sulfide gas, and it is this geological teaser that led to the eventual discovery of the Thunder Zone under the paleo-landslide in hole Thor-220.

 

Despite intersecting only weak mineralization in the Ridge Target, Thor-219 was continued further into the underlying Blue Bell Zone, encountering it at 157.01–157.20 m. Historical underground sampling and previous Taranis drilling had already shown that the Blue Bell Zone “pinched-out” in this area. The assay results from the Blue Bell interval showed the characteristic high-grade of this zone (0.20% Cu, 0.55% Pb, 5.66% Zn, 118g/t Ag, and 0.67 g/t Au/0.19 m). This intercept demonstrates that despite a diminished environment for the hosting of a wide zone of mineralization in the northern terminus of Blue Bell, the metal-bearing hydrothermal fluids that deposited the metals did not wane during deposition.

 

Discovery of a New Zone at Thor (Thor-220)

 

Thor-220 (-900) was cased down through the landslide and entered bedrock at a depth of 30.78 m from the same setup as Thor-219. Shortly after entering bedrock the drill hole intersected Jowett Formation volcanic rocks (48.95–74.52 m) that exhibited prolific quartz veining accompanied by tetrahedrite, sphalerite, galena, and pyrite mineralization. This mineralization was the source of the hydrogen sulfide gas that was noted in Thor-219.

 

Analytical results from Thor-220 show that it has both a deeper high-grade zone but is also encapsulated within lower-grade mineralization that is potentially bulk mineable. The higher-grade mineralization occurs from 68.13-72.09 m with analytical results shown below:

The encapsulating lower-grade interval included 10.30 m (62.49-72.79 m) of 0.07% Cu, 1.07% Pb, 2.13% Zn, 103.42 g/t Ag and 0.35 g/t Au. Taranis has posted a picture of the drill core from this intercept as well as some general images of the landslide on the website at www.taranisresources.com.

 

Implications of the Thunder Zone for Increasing Thor’s Mineral Resource

 

Moving from southeast to northwest, the Thor deposit is comprised of large en-echelon stacked zones known as Broadview, Great Northern, True Fissure and Blue Bell that obliquely transect the Silver Cup Anticline. The Silver Cup Anticline is a large, regional structure which hosts many other silver deposits in the Silver Cup Mining camp. Prior to the discovery of the Thunder Zone, all known zones at Thor were located only on the south side of the Silver Cup Anticline, extending 2.5 km south of the Silver Cup Anticline exposed in Fissure Creek. The Thunder Zone is the first zone to be found at Thor on the north side of the Silver Cup Anticline.

 

Taranis is confident that the Thunder Zone will be comparable to True Fissure, Great Northern, or Blue Bell, and that it is part of a repeating pattern that continues to the north-northwest. The Thunder Zone is a completely blind zone hidden under steep topography and an overlying paleo-landslide. Now that these features relative to the zone have been identified and mapped, following the Thunder zone and any subsequent zones in the sequence will be greatly simplified.

 

The Thor-220 intercept bears close resemblance to other drill holes in the existing deposit in terms of tenor, thickness, and mineralogy. It also establishes a repetitious pattern of mineralization which will simplify discovery of additional zones as exploration activities move under Thor’s Ridge. Thor-220 is the northernmost drill hole that was completed in the Thunder Zone, and also the northernmost drill hole ever drilled at Thor. Testing this zone moving further to the northwest is a high priority for future drilling.

 

While much exploration work remains in order to follow the Thunder Zone under Thor’s Ridge, there are indications the Thunder Zone extends for a considerable distance to the north-northwest. Previous surface sampling by Taranis at a location called ‘SIF North’ (located over 1 km to the northwest of the Thunder Zone) obtained gold values up to 0.60 g/t Au. Westmin Resources, who formerly explored in the vicinity of SIF North, also obtained gold values in trenching up to 3.85 g/t Au in the early 1980s. This gives Taranis high confidence that there is still a substantial amount of mineralization to be found under Thor’s Ridge and on the north side of the Silver Cup Anticline. In this area, the targets are hidden below surface under barren lithocap rocks of the Broadview Formation, and this would explain why they have not been previously discovered.

 

CEO’s Comment

 

John Gardiner, President and CEO of Taranis states, “Thor is a large hydrothermal system that extends for upwards of 2.5 km in strike length, and it is now suspected to have all three parts of an intact hydrothermal system. Since acquiring this deposit in 2006, we have drilled over 250 holes and developed a good understanding of the ore controls and its genesis.

 

The Source is most likely a large intrusive body found under Broadview Creek, the Conduit is the Thor Fault Zone which obliquely crosscuts the Silver Cup Anticline, and finally the Trap is a lithology called the Jowett Formation lying under the Broadview Formation that is a tight caprock. While the Source part of this model remains to be tested with drilling for porphyry-type mineralization, it was the subject of further exploration activity in 2021 including ground geophysical surveys and surface sampling. This area, in addition to the newly discovered Thunder Zone, remain the prime areas of exploration that will contribute to Resource growth in 2022. Taranis is planning a new NI 43-101 Resource Estimate that will replace and significantly expand on its outdated 2013 maiden Resource estimate.

 

The Silver Cup Anticline hosts other deposits in the area, but what makes Thor so interesting is its elevated gold content within the main polymetallic sulfide deposit but also in high-grade monometallic gold zones such as SIF. We now know that the Thor deposit occurs at the junction of a major NNW-trending shear zone and the Silver Cup Anticline. It appears that an underlying buried intrusive Source body has emplaced precious and base metals at that structural junction.

 

Taranis has a unique approach to exploration. First and foremost, permitting and other factors necessitate that exploration in British Columbia be ‘surgical’ in its approach. Key to this approach is a reliable geological model that is testable. Ensuring that each and every drill hole counts towards an expanded Resource pays dividends to our shareholders through cost-conscious discovery with a high success rate. This approach by necessity weighs heavily on experience, long-term planning, and state-of-the-art exploration methods.”

Integration of Assets, Investment in Future Secure NGM’s Status as Industry Leader

ELKO, Nev., Oct. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nevada Gold Mines (NGM) is demonstrating the impact of operator and majority-owner Barrick’s strategy of combining the best people with the best assets to deliver the best returns, Barrick president and chief executive Mark Bristow said here today.

Speaking at an update for local media and community leaders, Bristow said NGM — the world’s largest gold mining complex — stood out from the rest of the industry not only because of its size but because its wealth of projects and prospects secure its future as a high-quality, long-life operation for decades to come.

“The combination of the Nevada assets of Barrick and Newmont has unlocked the vast geological potential of this mineral-rich region by consolidating mines, processing facilities and landholdings. Anchored by the massive Carlin and Cortez mines, NGM is building up the third Tier One1 asset, Turquoise Ridge, while Goldrush, a world-class project in its own right, heads up a long pipeline of quality prospects,” he said.

“NGM has also built strong relations across the full spectrum of the mines’ previously neglected stakeholders, and its wide-ranging support for educational and other community development initiatives is securing its social licence as a valuable partner with Nevada and its people.”

Bristow cited Turquoise Ridge as an example of the transformative effect of asset consolidation. The high-grade underground orebody at Turquoise Ridge, then a Barrick property, was mined for years without a full understanding of its geology and was also constrained by the lack of its own processing plant. At the same time, Newmont’s neighboring Twin Creeks was facing the decline of production from its open pits and its processing facilities had never been pushed to deliver. The ramp-up of underground production at Turquoise Ridge, based on a completely new geological model, will pick up speed when its third shaft is completed next year, more than offsetting the drop in production from the now-integrated Twin Creeks. The integration of the two assets has also delivered new exploration opportunities in the gap between the two.

During the past quarter, the Goldrush project’s official Notice of Intent was published, putting NGM well on the way to permitting its next major orebody. The updated feasibility study and the successful processing of the first ore samples has strengthened confidence that additional resources will be converted to reserves later this year.

NGM continued to optimize its portfolio through the South Arturo/Lone Tree asset swap, which removed a closure liability from its balance sheet while securing additional ounces and geological upside by bringing the other 40% of South Arturo under its control. In the meantime, brownfields exploration is confirming a significant upside through prospects such as a major deposit in North Leeville and the promising Phoenix gold and copper satellite.

Bristow said NGM was continuing to invest in infrastructure capable of supporting mining far into the future. This includes advancing data analysis capabilities and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. An example of the latter is the second phase of the TS solar power facility which will increase its solar capacity to 200MW and is the cornerstone of NGM’s commitment to cutting GHG emissions by 20% by 2025.

Reviewing the past quarter, Bristow said improved run times at all of NGM’s major processing facilities had lifted NGM’s performance while the restoration of the Carlin mill operations had set it up for a strong end to the year.
