Vancouver, BC – TheNewswire – November 24, 2021 – Global Energy Metals Corporation (TSXV:GEMC) | (OTCQB:GBLEF) | (FSE:5GE1) (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a company involved in the battery metals supply chain, is pleased to report that it has completed a program of rock and soil sampling, and geological mapping at the Monument Peak copper-silver-gold project in Lemhi County, Idaho, United States.

The exploration program, conducted by Dahrouge Geological Consulting USA (“DGC”), included the collection of 557 soil samples and 13 rock samples (see Figure 1).

Phase 1 Highlights of the Soil Sampling and Geological Reconnaissance Sampling:

  • In total 557 soil samples and 13 rock samples collected, 

  • Rock samples ranged up to 5.61% Cu, 175 g/t Ag, 17.6 g/t Au; the samples returned an arithmetic average of 2.18% Cu, 63 g/t Ag, 3.65 g/t Au, 

  • Soil samples show strong geochemical (Cu, Ag, Au) anomalism along the known mineralized trend, which extends for 3,200+ metres, 

  • A mineralized pit in the south part of the property was identified 200 metres due east of previous known mineralization, 

  • A newly identified historical trench between the south and central showings confirms continuity of mineralization, and 

  • Workings, outcrops, and soil geochemistry imply the mineralized system could be continuous over its entire known strike length of 3,200+ metres. 

During the course of exploration activities, field crews identified several new areas of visible copper mineralization (see Figures 2-4). The strongly mineralized samples contained variable amounts of chalcopyrite and copper oxide minerals, consistent with the known Cu-Ag-Au mineralization on the property.

Timothy Strong, Project Development Manager commented:

We are very excited by the results generated by our recent work program at Monument Peak. While prospecting and soil geochemistry indicate a much larger footprint to the polymetallic mineralization at the property, the observation and discovery of several additional areas with strong copper, silver and gold mineralization provides us with new high-priority targets for a future drill program. It is astonishing that in this mature mining and exploration district in Idaho, a strategic project like the Monument Peak property remains so under-explored and can so easily benefit from exploration techniques being deployed.”

Data collected during the summer/fall 2021 exploration programs at Monument Peak will be utilized to prepare an independent technical report to assist with drill targeting and permitting.

All soil and rock samples were shipped to Actlabs in Kamploops, BC for multielement analysis (including silver) by aqua regia digestion with ICP-OES finish (code 1E3) for rock samples and ICP-MS finish (code UT1) for soil samples and gold analysis by fire assay with AA finish (package 1A2B-30).

Monument Peak Copper-Silver-Gold Project, Idaho, USA

The Monument Peak Project consists of 69 claims covering approximately 1,380 acres (~558.5 hectares).  It is an exploration-staged, high-grade, copper-silver-gold project, which covers two small past producing copper mines: Jackson and Hungry Hill.  Sporadic development and production in the area occurred primarily during the early 1900’s, with some additional development in the 1950’s.  The most recent exploration occurred during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Mitchel (1972) described the Cu-Ag-Au mineralization at Monument as having “unusual continuity” in association with structural zones within sericitic quartzites, which can be traced along 3,200 m strike that vary from 3 to 6 m width.

The mineralization is described (Lavery, 1988) as “syngenetic and fits a volcanic-hosted (massive) sulfide model … where … the copper-mineralized section might be as much as 175 feet thick”.

A previous program undertaken by DGC in 2020, included the collection of 56 rock samples to confirm historical results, as announced in a previous news release dated April 27, 2021.  The field work confirmed both the presence of significant Cu, Ag mineralization, but also the presence of significant gold mineralization.  The samples were collected from three main areas over 3,200 m strike and from the separate Hungry Hill Mine; the arithmetic average of all samples was 2.34% Cu, 57.6 g/t Ag, and 0.68 g/t Au.

Project highlights follow (from North to South):

  • North Showing: grab samples to 0.57% Cu, 248 g/t Ag, 57.5 g/t Au; 

  • Jackson Adit: grab samples to 13.6% Cu, 2,589 g/t Ag, 17.1 g/t Au; 

    • Chip Sample: 3.0 m of 7.03% Cu, 109 g/t Ag 

    • Chip Sample: 1.8 m of 3.11% Cu, 101 g/t Ag 

    • Chip Sample: 6.1 m of 4.32% Cu, 99 g/t Ag 

  • Anderson Occurrence: grab samples to 3.9% Cu, 89 g/t Ag, 2.5 g/t Au. 

  • Hungry Hill Mine (2 km east of main trend): 2.4 m of 17% Cu.

Brascan Enters into Option Agreement to Acquire Black Cat Property

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 7, 2021) – Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) ("Brascan" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that…

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 7, 2021) – Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) (“Brascan” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement (the “Agreement“) with Jason Flight, Wayne Hurley, Kenneth Lewis, Garland Rice, Peter Hurley and Daniel Jacobs (collectively, the “Optionors“) to acquire a 100% interest in the Black Cat property located 40 km south of the town of Baie Verte, Newfoundland (the “Property“). The Property contains 56 mineral claims and has two licences. The Property is near Brascan’s Middle Arm Fault property, which Brascan optioned on November 4, 2021. The Property is accessible by road and is within 100 km of the Nugget gold/copper milling facility. The option claims are near the northern boundary of Maritime Resources Corp.‘s Whisker Valley project, and Maritime’s past-producer Hammerdown gold deposit, which is described in some detail in Maritime’s PEA (McCracken et al., 2020).[1]

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is ranked among the top 10 mining jurisdictions world-wide by the Fraser Institute. The Baie Verte district in northwestern Newfoundland boasts excellent infrastructure reflecting its long mining history including a skilled workforce, a deep water port facility at Pine Cove, gold milling facilities at Pine Cove and Nugget Pond, a local assay laboratory, local mining and drilling contractors, high power transmission lines, a regional airport (100 km from the community of Baie Verte) and local hospitals, schools, hotels and supplies.

The Property covers a portion of the regionally significant Middle Arm Fault, which extends more than 15 km to the southwest, where it is spatially associated with several gold showings, as reported on the Newfoundland and Labrador Geoscience Atlas (https://geoatlas.gov.nl.ca/Default.htm). An initial round of sampling on the Property in 2020 resulted in 17 of 35 samples having the sulphite content of the quartz veins similar to the nearby Whisker Valley property. Given the strong gold content in the soil and till anomalies, it is likely that gold exists near the surface and within the mineralized quartz vein system of the Property.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company may acquire a 100% interest in the Property by: (i) making an aggregate cash payment to the Optionors of $168,000; (ii) issuing an aggregate of 670,000 common shares of the Company to the Optionors; and (iii) incurring an aggregate of $725,000 in exploration expenditures on the Property all prior to the fourth anniversary of the date of the Agreement. The share issuances, cash payments and exploration commitments gradually increase over the term of the Agreement. The Optionors will retain a 2.5% net smelter royalty, 1.5% of which may be purchased by Brascan for $2,000,000.
