Rouyn Noranda, Q.C. – TheNewswire – November 15, 2021 – Granada Gold Mine Inc. (TSXV:GGM) (OTC:GBBFF) (Frankfurt: B6D) (the “Company” or “Granada”) is pleased to announce that it has engaged SGS Canada for metallurgical and environmental studies for on-site milling at its Granada project near Rouyn-Noranda, Que

The studies will be used for the planned application to modify the Company’s existing Quebec Certificate of Authorization, which currently allows for the open-pit mining of 8,000 tonnes per day at the property and the custom milling of 550 tonnes per day (200,000 tonnes per year) at a local mill.

Granada President and CEO Frank J. Basa, P.Eng., states: “Earlier this year the historical open-pit resource of 1 gram/tonne at Granada was recalculated to 2 grams per tonne open pit and 4 grams per tonne underground. More recently, we completed 30,000 meters of an in-fill drill program that includes the 100 and 200 series drill holes, with the results indicating there is more gold in the mineralized structures than defined by the historical 120,000 meters of drilling. The combined potential impact of these developments is a positive change in the processing economics of the project. We have therefore decided to begin the process for amending the existing permits to enable on-site milling at Granada.”

SGS Canada will be testing ore processing with the addition of calcite with gravity and cyanidation of gravity tails, as well as processing the ore by gravity and flotation for production of gold sulfides concentrates.  The studies are expected to begin in November 2021.

Since the Granada 43-101 mineral resource estimate was last updated, the Company has completed 30,000 meters of a planned 120,000-meter drill program. An update of the estimate to include the latest drill results is planned for Q1 2022.

 

Location

 

The Granada Gold project is located in an established mining district 5 km south of 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).

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.

Copper Fox Identifies Additional Porphyry Targets at Eaglehead

Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – January 20, 2022) – Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV: CUU) (OTCQX: CPFXF) ("Copper Fox" or the "Company") through its…

Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – January 20, 2022) – Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV: CUU) (OTCQX: CPFXF) (“Copper Fox” or the “Company”) through its wholly owned subsidiary Northern Fox Copper Inc. is pleased to provide an update on the geophysical modelling on its 100% owned Eaglehead polymetallic porphyry copper project located approximately 50 kilometers (‘km’) east of Dease Lake, British Columbia. The Eaglehead project covers a large portion (15,956 ha) of the late Jurassic age, Eaglehead stock located at the southern margin of the Quesnel terrane. The Quesnel terrane hosts several porphyry copper deposits including Lorraine, Mt. Milligan, and Mount Polly to the south.

In preparation for a 2022 field season, compilation and re-interpretation of current and historical exploration data resulted in completion of a Magnetization Vector Inversion (MVI) analyses of the airborne magnetic and radiometric data collected in 2014. Magnetization Vector Inversion is an exploration technique used to locate magnetite bearing, high temperature hydrothermal centres indicative of potassic (K-spar-magnetite-secondary biotite) altered zones associated with porphyry systems.

Highlights

  • The MVI analyses identified five areas, interpreted to represent late-stage intrusive plugs with associated potassic (magnetite) alteration.
  • Four of the interpreted late-stage intrusive plugs exhibit a strong spatial correlation to the Thibert Fault system.
  • The four interpreted intrusives located along the Thibert Fault exhibit a strong positive correlation to known areas of copper mineralization and copper-molybdenum (‘Cu-Mo’) in soil geochemical anomalies.
  • The compilation indicates the main portion of the porphyry could be to the north and at depth below the near surface mineralized zones.

Elmer B. Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, stated, “The MVI study has identified a 10km long linear trend with four late-stage intrusive plugs exhibiting the magnetic characteristics of a porphyry copper system. These late-stage intrusives are located at depth below the surface zones of mineralization distributed along or in proximity to the Thibert Fault and show a very strong correlation with all known areas of copper mineralization and Cu-Mo in soil geochemical anomalies. The MVI study also identified two previously unknown targets and identified priority areas in which to focus future exploration.

Geological Model

The historical drilling intersected six, open ended zones of near surface, intrusion hosted polymetallic porphyry style mineralization. Modelling (3D) of the mineralization in the Bornite and East zones and the three distinct, overlapping episodes of copper mineralization suggests that the drilling intersected the very upper level of an evolving porphyry system.

The MVI study, and trace element ratios (fertility indices) indicate late-stage, intrusive/hydrothermal activity at depth, the upper levels of which are represented by the near surface zones of porphyry mineralization. The spatial association of the copper mineralization and interpreted buried intrusives suggests the Thibert Fault exerted significant control on the emplacement of the late stage intrusives and porphyry mineralization. The model provides an explanation for the MVI study results, area/zones of mineralization and distribution of Cu-Mo in soil anomalies in relation to the intrusive plugs and structures. The data suggest that the main portion of the porphyry system could be to the north and at depth below the surface mineralization, see Figure 1.

MVI Study

The MVI analysis was completed using Geosoft’s VOXI Magnetic Vector Inversion software. Multiple inversions were carried out to find a model that fit the observed data within the allocated noise threshold while not adding unnecessary features to the model. The final model was generated by applying the VOXI IRI focussing method to recover a sharper model. Horizontal slices ranging from 200 to 600 meters below surface were generated during the modelling, the 600-depth slice was used for the current interpretation. Highlights of the study are listed below:

  1. Five positive magnetic signatures were identified.
  2. The magnetic signatures are interpreted to represent potassic (magnetite) alteration associated with late-stage intrusive plugs within the Eaglehead intrusive.
  3. The plugs are located at depth below the Bornite-East zone, West-Camp zone, between the East zone and the Far East zone, on the west side of the Thibert Fault and to the north of the mineralized area.
  4. Four of the five intrusive plugs exhibit a strong spatial association with the Thibert Fault system.
  5. The shape of the magnetic signature on the west side of the Thibert Fault suggests that the Thibert Fault offset the mineralization in the Bornite and East zones potentially up to 1km to the east. The MVI anomaly on the west side of the Thibert Fault has not been tested by drilling.
  6. A large, NNW trending arcuate shaped area of positive magnetization extends north of the Camp-Pass zones crosscutting the regional trend of the Eaglehead intrusive. The cause of this feature is unknown and will be fact checked during the 2022 field program.

Leocor Gold Completes Phase 1 Soil Campaign at Hodges Hill Project, North Central Newfoundland, Canada

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – January 20, 2022 – Leocor Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Leocor”) (CSE:LECR) (CNSX:LECR.CN) (OTC:LECRF)…

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – January 20, 2022Leocor Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Leocor”) (CSE:LECR) (CNSX:LECR.CN) (OTC:LECRF) (FRA:LGO) is pleased to announce the completion of a soil sampling campaign, consisting of 4583 soils, on the Hodges Hill Property, consisting of nine mineral licenses totaling 1562 claims and covering 39,050 hectares (390 square km) in the southwest corner of the Western Exploit District, north central Newfoundland, Canada.

 

This campaign forms part of a comprehensive phase one exploration program on the grassroots-stage property. The claims are host to distinct magnetic high units (Gabbros) in settings indicative of known regional gold occurrences. These rocks are associated with continental volcanism. Gabbros have long been recognized as being directly associated with gold mineralization in the Baie Verte area in occurrences such as Anaconda Mines Pine Cove deposit and more recently, the 2014 discovery by Anaconda of the Stog’er Tight and Argyle showings. The project covers major regional NE and NNW structures outlined by the regional NFLD airborne magnetic surveys. Anomalous government till sampling programs have identified gold and arsenic anomalies associated with these regional structures. The overall distribution of soils from this 2021 Leocor campaign is illustrated in Figure 1.

 

Leocor is working with GroundTruth exploration on the program which we expect to define a significant mineralized footprint.  The GroundTruth method breaks down the exploration process into phases, typically defined as follows:

 

Phase 1)

  • Soils 100 m line separation and 25 m sampling separation 

  • Aeromagnetic and VLF survey 

  • Lidar Survey 

  • Ground Magnetic survey 

Phase 2)

  • GT Probe Drilling (around areas of interest constituting potential targets) 

  • Induced Polarization across potential drill targets 

Phase 3)

  • GT Rab Drilling (typically 60m holes in fences across shallow targets) 

Phase 4)

  • Diamond or Reverse Circulation drilling (once structure and orientation of target are well defined) 

 

It has recently come to light that the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt is prospective for high-grade gold associated with strong northeast trending regional structures. High-grade gold at New Found Gold’s Keats showing and Labrador Gold’s Big Vein target were originally discovered with regional and targeted lake, till and soil geochemical programs. Both of these showings are associated with linear 1st vertical derivative Magnetic anomalies.  Much of the gold in Newfoundland appears to have been deposited in a fairly tight window of time between 437 and 375 Ma.

 

Very similar geophysical anomalies are present on the Leocor claims and are associated with regional till anomalies identified by historical exploration (Noranda and others) and Newfoundland Government geochemical surveys.

Figure 1: Completed soil sampling for the Hodges Hill project

 

The phase 1 program was designed to follow up additional 1st derivative magnetic high linear anomalies that are associated with regional till anomalies on the claims. Detailed C-horizon soil geochemical grids will target prospective magnetic high anomalies. Samples will be collected below the oxidized B-horizon wherever possible as this layer has been identified as being a mask to underlying anomalous till sediments which are more reflective of source material

 

Any soil anomalies identified will be followed up with prospecting, additional geochemical, geophysical, and geological programs, and drilling in future exploration programs.

 

Chief financial officer appointment

 

Zula Kropivnitski has resigned as the company’s chief financial officer for personal reasons, effectively immediately.

 

The company has appointed Heidi Gutte as chief financial officer of the company.
