VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — St. James Gold Corp. (TSXV: LORD) (OTCQB: LRDJF) (FSE: BVU3), St. James Gold Corp. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce exploration is underway at the recently optioned Grub Line gold property in Newfoundland, Canada (the “Grub Line Property”) at a prospective location along the Gander River Ultramafic Belt with project field operator, local exploration service company Planet X Exploration Services Ltd.

The Grub Line Property includes 29 map-staked claims covering 725 Hectares. The initial exploration program currently underway includes regional prospecting and ground-truth verification of historical prospects located on the property.

The Grub Line Property covers a package of the Gander River complex of rocks. See photographs below. This package is comprised of felsic volcanics, mafic volcanics, ultramafic rocks, and gabbro intrusions. Intense hydrothermal activity has altered the rocks and strong sericite, calcite, chlorite & talc-carbonate alteration has been observed in host rocks and quartz veins throughout the property. There can be rich endowments of sulphide minerals in these geological environments. Listwanites or carbonatized ultramafics that commonly occur in the gander river complex of rocks have been identified as potentially gold-bearing.

The spatial relationship of gold mineralization to faults zones with carbonatized ultramafics/listwanites suggests a comparison to the Mother Lode Belt in California. Similar listwanitic gold quartz veins have formed economic deposits in the metamorphic belts of California and the Juneau Gold belt in Alaska. The program manager, Planet X Exploration Services Ltd. is using a general deposit model where the carbonatization of ultramafic rocks and the development of gold veins in and above thrusts, reverse and normal faults act as a guide for exploration along the Grub Line Property.

Location of the Grub Line Property adjacent to New Found Gold Corp. Queensway property:

The initial exploration program at the Grub Line Property consists of regional prospecting and ground-truthing historical prospects located within the 725-hectare project area. The Grub Line Property is believed to be an important aspect of the major structural corridors related to both the Gander Gold belt and the Newfound Gold Corporation – “Keats zone” hosting bonanza high grade gold mineralization. The Grub Line Property hosts several well-mineralized zones and is located only 8 km east of the Newfound Gold Corp.’s “Keats Discovery”, and 3 km west of the Town of Gander, on the island of Newfoundland, Canada.

Detailed view of the Grub Line Property, showing active quarries both on site and nearby:

The following quote from the technical report by Christopher Baldys, P.Eng and Dean Fraser, P.Geo. for the Grun Line Property dated April 1, 2021 addresses the significance of the quarry sites on the property.

  “Generally speaking, the claim block occurs in an area of fairly gentle topography with locally sparse to moderate tree cover. Several outcrops were noted during the Property visit as well as locally abundant till cover in places. Performing exploration on the claims will likely require some consultation with the aggregate companies working the area as well as communications with cabin owners depending on the focus area of the work program.”

George Drazenovic, CEO, comments “the active quarries on our claim block are very important because they give us a direct view of bedrock. The pictures taken by Wesley Keats for Planet X Exploration Services Ltd. in this first work program illustrate the bedrock. Our NI 43-101 report on this property noted this outcrop with a surprising degree of alteration.

Our contractors Planet X Exploration Services Ltd. provide a valuable connection in the local community with both the aggregate companies and cabin owners. Assays are pending on our first samples, including from the rocks pictured in this news release. I look forward to soon providing geological information from a detailed prospecting program at our Grub Line Property. Information will also be available soon on our Quinn Lake gold property.”

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.


  • 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.

Figure 1. MVI signature at 600 m depth with soil geochemistry, mineralization, and structures. Scale is 1:50,000.

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. Ms. Gutte specializes in providing corporate finance, financial reporting, consulting, taxation and other accounting services to both small businesses as well as public companies in various industries. She also assists in many aspects of clients’ administration, corporate compliance and other activities.
