VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 20, 2021 / Hannan Metals Limited (“Hannan” or the “Company”) (TSXV:HAN)(OTC PINK:HANNF) reports on exploration program results from the Tabalosos East prospect within the San Martin JOGMEC JV sediment-hosted copper-silver project in Peru (Figures 1 and 2).

Highlights:

  • Surface channel sampling from outcrops at Tabalosos East, taken over a 500-metre strike, returned significant results from three new outcrops. The zone is located 1.9 kilometres north of previously reported mineralization and is interpreted to be hosted in the same mineralized horizon. Better assays included (Figures 1 and 2):
    • 2.8 metres (“m”) @ 3.0% copper (“Cu”) and 48 g/t silver (“Ag”) (partially sampled)
      • Including 1.6m @ 5.3% Cu and 83 g/t Ag
    • 2.0m @ 1.1 % Cu and 11 g/t Ag
    • 0.2m @ 2.2 % Cu and 27 g/t Ag (partially sampled)
  • Separately, 1.2 kilometres east of the new outcrops, mapping over significant distances of mineralized outcrops in trenches, exposed beneath soil anomalies, clearly demonstrates that copper is hosted by a fine grained, organic-rich reduced shale within a bleached package of shaly siltstones:
    • A 10m wide altered and bleached zone with anomalous copper has been mapped and inferred over 650m of strike with geochemical assays from 380m of strike including 1.2m @ 0.52% Cu and 6 g/t Ag and 3.5m @ 0.73% Cu and 9 g/t Ag including 0.2 m @ 1.1% Cu and 13 g/t Ag;
    • This is considered critical new geological information, as it is the first time that detailed mapping, over the larger scale, has defined a mappable, consistent, and well-defined fine-grained, reduced organic shale, previously only mapped between sporadic boulders and poorly exposed outcrops;
    • This provides further evidence that the mineralization at San Martin and is of the reduced facies sediment hosted copper-silver “Kupferschiefer” style;
  • All mineralization described above is located at Tabalosos East where the company is currently preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (Declaración de Impacto Ambiental, or “DIA”) study. The DIA, previously reported here, will allow low impact mineral exploration that includes diamond drilling of up to 40 platforms in a 9 x 3 kilometre area. Subject to permitting, drilling is anticipated to take place in Q2 2022.

Michael Hudson, CEO, states, “Further high-grade surface channel samples with a highlight result of 1.6m @ 5.3% Cu and 83 g/t Ag from outcrop mineralization attest to the thickness of high-grade copper and silver mineralization that we continue to uncover at San Martin over such large scales (Figure 2). However, equally important is the first detailed work to emerge from the project that demonstrates a consistent and mappable organic and reduced shale that hosts mineralization, that further geologically supports the reduced facies sediment-hosted style. This geological style globally forms the largest and most consistent sediment-hosted copper systems, and includes the vast Kupferschiefer deposit in Eastern Europe and deposits of the African Copper Belt in sub-Saharan Africa, two of the largest copper districts on earth. We have multiple geological teams unravelling the opportunity while permitting and social teams continue to work together with all stakeholders on the DIA, to permit diamond drilling.”

Detailed mapping of outcrops with correlating stratigraphic columns demonstrates that copper mineralization in the new zone mentioned above is hosted by an organic rich shale facies within an approximately 10m thick bleached/altered and copper anomalous package of shaly siltstones. This sequence represents a different depositional environment of lower energy that has facilitated the deposition of a consistent organic-rich, reduced shale facies. The impact on the exploration model is fundamental, as it supports the assumption of a widespread reduced facies across the Huallaga basin.

Five geologists and associated field assistants, two social consultants plus two local social support, two archaeologists and other external environmental consultants related to the DIA program have been engaged at Tabalosos East. In other work, a total of 2,329 soil samples have now been collected within the DIA area, and 22 pits and trenches have been dug below the soil samples. Additionally, a total of 90% of the 64,500 hectares or 2,782-line kms of LiDAR have been acquired at the San Martin JOGMEC JV sediment-hosted copper-silver project with the survey to be completed in the coming weeks when weather conditions allow.

Technical Background
All samples were collected by Hannan geologists. Rock and sediment samples were transported to ALS in Lima via third party services using traceable parcels. At the laboratory rock samples were prepared and analyzed by standard methods. The sample preparation involved crushing 70% to less than 2mm, riffle split off 250g, pulverize split to better than 85% passing 75 microns. The crushers and pulverizes were cleaned with barren material after every sample. Samples were analyzed by method ME-MS61, a four acid digest preformed on 0.25g of the sample to quantitatively dissolve most geological materials. Analysis is via ICP-MS.

Channel samples are considered representative of the in-situ mineralization samples and sample widths quoted approximate the true width of mineralization, while grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.

About the San Martin JOGMEC JV Project (Copper-Silver, Peru, 88 mining concessions for 660 sq km)
On November 30, 2020 Hannan announced that it had signed a binding letter agreement for a significant Option and Joint Venture Agreement (the “Agreement”) with JOGMEC. Under the Agreement, JOGMEC has the option to earn up to a 75% beneficial interest in the San Martin Project by spending up to US$35,000,000 to deliver to the joint venture (“JV”) a feasibility study.

The Agreement grants JOGMEC the option to earn an initial 51% ownership interest by funding US$8,000,000 in project expenditures at San Martin over a four-year period, subject to acceleration at JOGMEC’s discretion.

JOGMEC, at its election, can then earn:

  • an additional 16% interest for a total 67% ownership interest by achieving either a prefeasibility study or funding a further US$12,000,000 in project expenditures in amounts of at least US$1,000,000 per annum (for a US$20,000,000 total expenditure); and,
  • subject to owning a 67% interest, a further 8% interest for a total 75% ownership interest by achieving either a feasibility study or funding a further US$15,000,000 in project expenditures in amounts of at least US$1,000,000 per annum (for a US$35,000,000 total expenditure).

Should JOGMEC not proceed to a prefeasibility study or spend US$20,000,000 in total, Hannan shall have the right to purchase from JOGMEC for the sum of US$1, a two percent (2%) Participating Interest, whereby Hannan’s Participating Interest will be increased to fifty-one percent (51%) and JOGMEC’s Participating Interest will be reduced to forty-nine percent (49%).

At the completion of a feasibility study, JOGMEC has the right to either:

  • Purchase up to an additional ten percent (10%) Participating Interest from Hannan Metals (for a total 85% maximum capped Participating Interest) at fair value as determined in accordance with internationally recognized professional standards by an agreed upon independent third-party valuator; or
  • Receive up to an additional ten percent (10%) Participating Interest from Hannan (for a total 85% maximum capped Participating Interest) in consideration of JOGMEC’s agreement to fund development of the project, by loan carrying Hannan until the San Martin Project generates positive cash flow.

After US$35,000,000 has been spent by JOGMEC and before a feasibility study has been achieved, both parties will fund expenditures pro rata or dilute via a standard industry dilution formula. If the Participating Interest in the Joint Venture of any party is diluted to less than 5% then that party’s Participating Interest will be automatically converted to a 2.0% net smelter royalty (“NSR”), and the other party may at any time purchase 1.0% of the 2.0% NSR for a cash payment of US$1,000,000. Hannan will manage exploration at least until JOGMEC earns a 51% interest, after which the majority participant interest holder will be entitled to act as the operator of the joint venture. Initial exploration activities will focus on the collection of the geological, geophysical, and geochemical datasets in the JV project areas.

Sediment-hosted stratiform copper-silver deposits are among the two most important copper sources in the world, the other being copper porphyries. They are also a major producer of silver. According to the World Silver Survey 2020 KGHM Polska Miedz’s (“KGHM”) three copper-silver sediment-hosted mines in Poland are the leading silver producer in the world with 40.2Moz produced in 2019. This is almost twice the production of the second largest producing mine. The Polish mines are also the sixth largest global copper miner and in 2018, KGHM produced 30.3 Mt of ore at a grade of 1.49% copper and 48.6 g/t silver from a mineralized zone that averages 0.4m to 5.5m thickness.

Globex Options Large Joutel Land Package

ROUYN-NORANDA, Quebec, Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (GMX – Toronto Stock Exchange, G1MN – Frankfurt, Stuttgart,…

ROUYN-NORANDA, Quebec, Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (GMX – Toronto Stock Exchange, G1MN – Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Berlin, Munich, Tradegate, Lang & Schwarz, LS Exchange, TTMzero, Düsseldorf and Quotrix Düsseldorf Stock Exchanges and GLBXF – OTCQX International in the US) is pleased to inform shareholders that Globex has optioned our Eagle Northwest, Gagné and Valrennes claim packages totaling approximately 50 square kilometres (191 claims), in the Joutel Mining Camp of Northwestern Quebec to Orford Mining Corporation (ORM-TSXV).

Figure 1 accompanying this announcement is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/ddd14f92-66b7-49af-8504-ba32ac40c8a7

Geological Map with gold and copper showing on the Joutel Eagle Property
Drilling intervals are down-hole lengths from historical data. True thicknesses cannot be estimated with available information. The technical information presented in this release was obtained from historical work reports filed with the Quebec Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and has not been independently verified by a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43- 1013.

Globex’s Eagle Northwest property herein and hereafter called the Joutel Eagle Property to coincide with Orford nomenclature, covers 11 kilometres of the Casa Berardi structural zone, south splay (CBSZ) which is associated with several mineral deposits such as the Casa Berardi Gold Mine and the polymetallic Estrade Mine. In addition, 11 kilometres of the northwestern extension of the Eagle/Telbel Gold Mine horizon has been shown by Globex’s recent detailed aeromagnetic survey to traverse the entire strike length of the property. Within this property, previous drilling roughly defined the “South Gold Zone” over a strike length of approximately 700 metres and to a depth of 500 metres. This historical gold zone is open to depth as are a number of other areas of gold mineralization intersected in previous drilling.

On the Gagné claims, surface sampling produced assays grading up to 26.2 g/t Au over 3.0 m in trenching (GM54803).

Lastly, the Valrennes claims, toward the western portion of the mining camp, have several clusters of very strong airborne electromagnetic anomalies which have received limited follow up and have potential to indicate the presence of gold and/or base metal bearing stringer or massive sulphides.

Under the option agreement, Orford may earn 100% interest in the claims by fulfilling the follow terms:

  1. The payment of $1,650,000 (half in cash and half in Orford shares) over a five year period of which $425,000 in the first 12 months is a firm obligation;
  2. A work expenditure of $2,775,000 of which $525,000 is a firm obligation within the first 24 month period.

Globex will retain a 3.5% Gross Metal Royalty (GMR), 1.5% of which Orford may purchase for a cash payment of $2,000,000.

Globex is pleased to be optioning this large land package to Orford which has good exploration experience in the area.

Shareholders should note that Globex has also recently optioned our Eagle Gold Mine property to Maple Gold Mines Ltd. (see Globex press release dated July 19, 2021 and Maple’s work update in Maple’s press release dated October 7th, 2021).

Apart from the Orford and Maple option deals, Globex retains two sizable claim packages in the Joutel Mining Camp, the former Poirier Mine and Joutel Copper Mine both of which Globex considers to have significant exploration potential in addition to historical resources.

[nxtlink id=

 

Vancouver, B.C. – TheNewswire – November 30th, 2021 – Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV:OPW) (FSE:A2PEAD) (OTC:OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) announces that further to the Company’s news release of November 24th, 2021, the Company has engaged the services of a Forage DCB Drilling of Rouyn-Noranda to undertake a minimum of 3,000 meters of drilling on the Bazooka Property.

 

Blake Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Opawica stated, “The team at Opawica is thrilled to begin drilling on the Bazooka Property. Historically the Bazooka Property has hosted some exciting gold grades and we are looking forward to expanding on that.”

 

Significant gold mineralization has been established on the Bazooka property from near surface to approximately 250 metres vertical depth during past drill programs completed on the property by previous owners. In 1944, Siscoe intersected an interval of 5.79 metres of 77.18 g/t Au (true width unknown); with historical drill intercepts ranging from narrow and intermittent anomalous gold. In 1981, Soquem reported values of up to 7.50 metres of 25.77 g/t Au; and in 2003 Lake Shore Gold Corp. intercepted 1.25 metres of 94.11 g/t Au; and RT Minerals Corp. intersected values of up to 17 metres of core length at 7.86 g/t Au, including 7.20 metres of 16.77 g/t Au. These recent intervals are estimated at approximately 85% to 93% true widths. This gold mineralization is known to exist within 50 metres on strike to the gold mineralization on the Yorbeau property and for a current strike length on Opawica’s Bazooka property and optioned Bazooka property for approximately seven kilometres.

 

Opawica’s drill program is designed to test the depth extension of the mineralized zone of the underground works. In 1951-52, Eldona Gold Mine sank a shaft of 125 m and at level -114 m and 634 m of drifts were developed and reached the fold nose feature of the Cadillac Larder Lake Break (“CLLB”). Four mineralized gold zones were outlined as follows: “Average of back panel samples grading 0.31 oz over 15.0 feet, average of back panel samples grading 0.55 oz over 3.5 feet by 69 feet long, average of back panel samples grading 0.06 oz over 5.3 feet by 60 feet long and channel samples grading 0.21 oz (over a drift section of 10 feet)”, (extract from technical report filed on Sedar on April 28, 2016).
