These new intercepts verify the continuity of mineralization along the main Vein #2 high-grade gold-bearing structure up to 250m to the west of Pit #2.

 

Rouyn Noranda, Q.C. – TheNewswire – October 4, 2021 – Granada Gold Mine Inc. (TSXV:GGM) (OTC:GBBFF) (Frankfurt:B6D) (the “Company” or “Granada”) is pleased to announce additional results from its on-going drill program at its Granada Gold project with multiple new assays from its 200-Series drill holes. These intervals include 1.11 g/t Au over 109.65m, 7.20 g/t Au over 8.85m, and with grades of up to 53.70 g/t Au over 0.65m, and 29.00 g/t Au over 0.50m.

Drilling Highlights

  • – The 200-Series drill holes (GR-21-26 and GR-21-28) were designed to determine the variability of gold mineralization of the main vein zone within the western extension of Pit #2 by drilling down the dip of the structure – similar to the 200-series drill holes previously released on September 7, 2021, that were focusing on the area east of Pit #1.

    – These assay results confirm the significant extent of localized, high-grade gold mineralization within the structure as well as prove the continuity of the mineralization over much broader intervals (of up to 109m down-dip) of the main zone below surface west of Pit #2.

    – GR-21-26 intersected 1.11 g/t Au over 109.65m, including:

    • – 15.35 g/t Au over 1.70m

      – 29.00 g/t Au over 0.50m  

      – 7.13 g/t Au over 7.70m

      – 9.32 g/t Au over 1.75m

      – 53.70 g/t Au over 0.65m

    – GR-21-28 intersected 7.20 g/t Au over 8.85m including:

    • – 13.62 g/t Au over 2.30m

      – 28.10 g/t Au over 0.80m

 

 “The assay results in these drill holes prove the continuity of mineralization along the main Granada footwall structure that is located between the Granada and Pontiac formations and confirm the extension to depth of high-grade gold mineralization. This supports the view that our gold grades and occurrences are continuous and have substantial thickness to the zone. Moreover, it clearly shows the previous operators did not extract all the gold near surface, particularly in the main footwall structure” said Frank J. Basa, P.Eng., President and CEO.

The mineralized zone at the western extension of Pit #2 contains a collection of multiple veins with sulfide mineralized halos. The zone contains 2 distinct sub-parallel mineralized veins which connect with the former Pit #2 to the east. The true thickness of these mineralized structures varies between 2m and 11m. The main zone of these 2 structures is what was tested with the 200-Series drill holes.

 

The 200-Series holes were designed with an azimuth of 10-30 degrees to the north attempting to drill down the vein structures as opposed to obliquely. Normally, the drill holes are aimed southward which are designed to intersect the structures at a high angle, with an azimuth in the general range of 170-190 degrees. Previous intercepts into this structure near these 2 holes have returned grades such as 4.04 g/t gold over 7.50 meters (true thickness) in hole GR-10-13, and 3.99 g/t gold over 6.00 meters in hole GR-11-226. The results we see in these 200-Series drill holes validate the assays encountered previously in other drill programs (such as the ones in 2010 & 2011) and confirm the continuity of the gold mineralization. It also demonstrates that the system is a multi-vein system (as opposed to a single discrete vein). This is why the true thickness of the gold mineralization at Granada varies significantly from small high-grade intervals, such as example 95.00 g/t over 0.50m, to even 0.31 g/t over 301m (Press Release September 18, 2012) depending on the location within the property and cut-off grade used for the calculation.

 

Location

The Granada Gold project is located near Rouyn-Noranda adjacent to the prolific Cadillac Break shear zone, which is hosted in Pontiac metasedimentary rocks, granites, and younger syenite sills along the Granada shear zone (LONG Bars Zone). The project is located on the same side of the Cadillac Fault as the Canadian Malartic mine property, which has historically produced 12.7 million Ounces of gold from 1935 to 2010 with an additional 5 million ounces as of June 18, 2020 (Canadian Malartic Technical Report of March 25, 2021 & Le Citoyen June 19, 2020).

Qualified person

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed by Claude Duplessis, P.Eng., GoldMinds Geoservices Inc., a member of the Québec Order of Engineers, and is a qualified person in accordance with the National Instrument 43-101 standards.

 

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols

 

All NQ core assays reported for Wedges of 2020 holes were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen metallic fire assay or standard 50-gram fire assay (with either atomic absorption or gravimetric finish). This was completed at the SGS Laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia with the sample preparation completed in Val d’Or, Québec. The 2021 assay results are from ALS laboratory in Val d’Or. The screen metallic fire assay method is pre-selected by the geologist or geological engineer when samples contain visible gold. The drill program, quality assurance, quality control (QAQC), and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing procedures consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QAQC purposes for this program in addition to the lab QAQC.

 

Mineral Resource Estimate

On March 15, 2021 the Company released an updated NI 43-101 resource estimate for the Granada Gold project (Please see January 29, 2021 news release) with a combined total of 713,000 gold ounces of measured, indicated, and inferred. This estimate contains 351,000 gold ounces of combined measured, indicated, and inferred for the open pit and 362,000 gold ounces of combined measured, indicated, and inferred for the underground. Please see Table 2 below for full details.

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.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 22, 2021 / Scorpio Gold Corporation (“Scorpio Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SGN) reports that certain of the directors of the Company have agreed to provide the Company with a short- term credit facility in order to maintain its operations over the short-term. The proceeds of the advances made under the credit facility will be used to bridge the Company’s activities until all Goldwedge assays have been announced so that an equity placement can be conducted later in the year.

As announced on September 29, 2021, the pending assays from the Goldwedge underground drill program will be announced upon receipt and analysis. The drill program was focused on defining the on-strike and down-dip continuity of mineralization intersected in the 2020 drilling program (July 27, 2020 news release) as well as testing new areas with the potential to define a mineral resource base.

Future drilling will test the Company’s structural interpretation that mineralization at Goldwedge could connect with mineralization in the West Pit area of the Company’s adjacent and proximal Manhattan Mine project. Goldwedge is a fully permitted underground mine and a 400 ton per day mill facility. The Manhattan Property includes 2 former producing mines, the Reliance Mine, which reportedly produced ~59,000 tons grading 0.435 oz/ton from 1932 to 1941, and the Manhattan Mine East and West pits, which produced ~236,000 oz. from 1974-1990. The deposits lie along the northwest-trending Reliance StructuralZone, which is considered the most predominant ore controlling structure in the region. The Reliance trend continues 4 km southeast to Scorpio Gold’s Keystone-Jumbo project area.

The credit facility is unsecured and interest free for US$500,000 to be drawn in advances at a minimum of US$100,000 over the next few months. All advances must be repaid within the earlier of Scorpio Gold closing a private placement more than C$1,000,000 and January 1, 2022.

Canstar Adopts Advance Notice By-law

 

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – October 22, 2021 – CANSTAR RESOURCES INC. (TSXV:ROX) & (OTC:CSRNF) (“Canstar” or the “Company”) announces…

Share this article:

 

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – October 22, 2021 – CANSTAR RESOURCES INC. (TSXV:ROX) & (OTC:CSRNF) (“Canstar” or the “Company”) announces that its board of directors approved the adoption of an advance notice by-law (the “Advance Notice By-law”), establishing a framework for advance notice of nominations of directors by shareholders of the Company (“Shareholders”). Among other things, the Advance Notice By-law fixes certain deadlines by which Shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that must be included in the notice.  

The Advance Notice By-law provides a clear process for Shareholders to follow for director nominations and sets out a reasonable time frame for the submissions of nominees and the accompanying information. The Advance Notice By-law will help to ensure that all Shareholders receive adequate notice of the nominations to be considered at a Shareholder meeting at which directors are to be elected and can thereby exercise their voting rights in an informed manner. The Advance Notice By-law is similar to the advance notice by-laws adopted by many other Canadian public companies.

More specifically, the Advance Notice By-law requires advance notice to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election as a director of the Company are made by Shareholders other than pursuant to a request for a meeting or through a Shareholder proposal, in each case in accordance with the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “OBCA”)

In the case of an annual meeting of Shareholders, notice to the Company must be given not less than 30 or more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. In the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be given not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.

In the case of a special meeting of Shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to the Company must be given not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

The Advance Notice By-law is effective immediately and will be placed before Shareholders for approval, confirmation and ratification at the next annual and special meeting of Shareholders of the Company to be held on November 29, 2021 (the “Meeting”). Pursuant to the provisions of the OBCA, the Advance Notice By-law will cease to be effective unless approved, ratified and confirmed by a resolution adopted by a majority of the votes cast by Shareholders at the Meeting.
