Ottawa, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 5, 2021) – Northern Graphite Corporation (TSXV: NGC) (OTCQB: NGPHF) (the “Company” or “Northern“) is pleased to announce the completion of the 2021 summer field season on its South Okak Ni-Cu-Co Property in Labrador. South Okak consists of 473 claims covering 11,825 hectares that are prospective for magmatic nickel sulphide deposits similar to Vale’s Voisey Bay Mine which is located 80 kilometers to the south. The South Okak area returned some of the best intersections outside of Voisey’s Bay in the 1990s but the area was not thoroughly explored due to a subsequent decline in nickel prices. The 2021 field program represents the first time South Okak has been examined as part of one consolidated land package using a more complete understanding of the geological and structural controls of the Voisey’s Bay deposits and modern geophysical techniques.

The 2021 program was very successful in improving the Company’s understanding of structural controls relating to existing targets and in identifying new targets. Over 200 rock samples were collected throughout the property and over 40 kilometers of high-resolution magnetometer data was acquired over two high priority areas. Results will be released when assays are received and all the data has been processed and compiled.

Gregory Bowes, CEO commented that: “The evolution to electric vehicles has created a high level of interest in battery metals such as Ni/Co/Cu and South Okak definitely needs a second look now that the land package has been consolidated and geologic knowledge and geophysical techniques are much more advanced.” He added that: “Excellent progress was made during the 2021 field season which will enable the Company to design a Phase 2 exploration program that will include a deep penetrating geophysical program and a drilling campaign in 2022.”

The 2021 field program was guided by comprehensive data compilation from historic assessment reports which included documentation of all known mineral showings and geophysical targets as well as 3D inversion processing of the magnetic data. The focus of the program was to examine and sample all known mineralized zones and to document the style of mineralization and geologic controls when possible. All significant historical Ni-Cu-Co showings were visited during the field program as well as a number of newly discovered mineralized areas. Company geologists examined the relationships between known targets on a regional scale for the first time and they were able to make a number of significant observations including;

  1. Voisey’s Bay was discovered through sampling of iron stained, weathered surface showings (“gossans”). Numerous large gossans also exist on the South Okak property and show an apparent alignment across numerous small historic claim blocks. These target areas may represent significant, previously unidentified structural zones.
  2. The main mineralized zones within the property occur along a north-south structurally related corridor which will be the focus area going forward.
  3. Historical geophysical surveys were segregated by the small claim blocks and it is now apparent many were poorly orientated in terms of known mineralization. Also, many airborne surveys were completed using antiquated technology which had limited effectiveness, especially in terms of depth of penetration.

MONTREAL, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Midland Exploration Inc. (“Midland”) (TSX-V: MD) is pleased to issue an update on its latest exploration activities across Quebec. Over the last few months, Midland and its partners have been very active in the field with a variety of drilling, stripping, geochemical sampling and prospecting campaigns. Several new mineral occurrences were discovered, and a number of new exploration targets were identified on various projects.

Two drilling campaigns were completed on the Casault and Gaudet-Fenelon JV projects during the summer, for a total of nearly 10,000 metres of drilling. On Casault, a new gold-bearing zone was recently identified in hole CAS-21-123 (see Midland press release dated October 21, 2021).

Overall, more than 7,000 samples were sent to the laboratory for assaying and assay results are currently pending.


  • New Au-bearing zone on Casault returned 6.85 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in hole CAS-21-123
  • 13 drill holes (5,295 metres) completed on the Casault project under option by Wallbridge
  • 14 drill holes (4,483 metres) completed on the Gaudet-Fenelon JV project with Probe
  • Two (2) new high-grade boulders discovered east of Mythril; 10.25 g/t Au, 8.0 g/t Ag and 7.99 g/t Au, 166 g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu, 0.07% Mo
  • Prospecting programs completed in Nunavik under our Alliances with BHP and SOQUEM
  • Stripping and channel sampling completed on the Golden Nest showing on Lewis
  • More than 7,000 assay results pending

Abitibi region

Casault project (100% Midland Under option by Wallbridge Mining)

A drilling program consisting of thirteen (13) drill holes totalling 5,295 metres was recently completed to test a series of NW-SE-trending structures interpreted from the magnetic survey. These targets are located a few kilometres north of the Sunday Lake Fault and west of the Martiniere and Bug Lake deposits.

Hole CAS-21-123, the first drill hole of the program, was testing a prominent NW-SE oriented structure interpreted from airborne magnetics and intersected 6.85 g/t Au over 2.00 metres from 254.50 to 256.50 metres. This new intersection is associated with a mineralized zone consisting of chalcopyrite, pyrite, pyrrhotite, and electrum, a gold-silver mineral phase, within deformed and heavily carbonate-altered host rocks. This NW-SE structural orientation remains untested over more than 3 kilometres on the Casault property and is known to control gold mineralization at Fenelon and Martiniere. A series of large structures of this trend also transects the Casault property. Complete assay results are pending.

Gaudet-Fenelon JV project (50% Midland – 50% Probe Metals)

Over the course of August and September, fourteen (14) drill holes totalling 4,483 metres were completed to test induced polarization anomalies coinciding with biogeochemical anomalies and structures interpreted from the magnetic survey. Assay results are pending.

La Peltrie project (100% Midland – Under option by Probe Metals)

On the La Peltrie project, three (3) induced polarization grids were surveyed this summer to cover biogeochemical anomalies identified along the perimeter of a syntectonic intrusion. The final results and interpretation of the three surveys are pending. A follow-up campaign is in preparation for 2022.

Samson project (100% Midland)

A black spruce bark biogeochemistry survey was conducted in the winter of 2021 in the vicinity of the new high-grade gold discovery at Golden Delilah, which graded up to 99.1 g/t Au over 0.40 metre (DDH SAM-20-10; 106.45-106.85 m) and 23.0 g/t Au over 1.05 metres (DDH SAM-20-15; 317.10-318.15 m). This biogeochemistry survey identified a new gold anomaly located approximately 2 kilometres southeast of the Golden Delilah showing. This new area has never been drill-tested and is located near the western contact of a felsic pluton, where identified gold anomalies are aligned along structures mainly trending NW-SE and N-S.

Adam project (100% Midland)

In the spring of 2021, a black spruce bark biogeochemistry survey covering the entire Adam property was completed. The results highlighted several areas with anomalous Au, As, Cu and Zn values, some of which are located along the same stratigraphic level as the B26 deposit, i.e., just north of the regional fault marking the contact between the Enjalran and Brouillan groups. In addition, several of these anomalies coincide with new untested helicopter-borne VTEM-type electromagnetic anomalies.

Mistaouac project (100% Midland)

A black spruce bark biogeochemistry survey was completed to cover the entire property. Several anomalies were identified, one of which is of particular interest along the contact of the Orvilliers pluton. This kilometre-scale anomaly is characterized by elevated values in Au, Ag, Cu, Mo, Sb and Te.

Lewis project (100% Midland)

Following the discovery made this past summer by prospecting at the Golden Nest showing, where grab samples yielded grades of 10.2 g/t Au and 2.1 g/t Au, mechanical stripping and channel sampling were completed in September. Approximately 50 samples are currently in the laboratory and assay results are pending.

Patris project (100% Midland)

New exploration targets were identified following a new lithogeochemical interpretation of the entire property. These new targets include the depth extension of drill holes PAT-15-05 and PAT-16-08, which identified an extensive hydrothermal alteration zone (Au-Ag-Pb-Mo-Te) more than 80 metres wide. In addition, two new target areas associated with Camflo-type alkaline intrusions were identified near the La Pause Fault, where turbidites of the Kewagama Group are in contact with volcanic rocks of the Malartic Group.

James Bay region

Mythril and Mythril Regional projects (100% Midland)

Over the course of August, a prospecting campaign led to the discovery of two new high-grade boulders on the Chisaayuu claim block of the Mythril Regional project. These gold-bearing boulders are located approximately 75 kilometres east of the Cu-Au-Ag-Mo Mythril zone, where the 3D model is currently being updated to include the results of the 2021 drilling program. These results include hole MYT-21-38 where 0.59% Cu, 0.05 g/t Au, 1.87 g/t Ag and 0.025% Mo over 28.50 metres from 56.50 to 85.00 metres, including 1.02% Cu, 0.09 g/t Au, 2.62 g/t Ag and 0.048% Mo over 10.50 metres from 56.50 to 67.00 metres, was obtained.

The two mineralized boulders discovered this summer on Chisaayuu yielded values of 10.25 g/t Au, 8.02 g/t Ag (in Boulder 1), and 7.99 g/t Au, 166 g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu and 0.07% Mo (in Boulder 2). A till sampling program is in preparation for the summer of 2022, as a follow-up and to locate the source of the boulders.

Galinée project (100% Midland)

Prospecting work carried out in August on the Galinée gold project identified several new gold-bearing boulders that yielded values in grab samples up to 1.43 g/t Au, 1.40 g/t Au and 1.08 g/t Au south of the Elsa showing. Other boulders were also discovered approximately 2 kilometres further west, grading up to 0.96 g/t Au and 0.50 g/t Au (grab samples). Several induced polarization anomalies remain unexplained to the north of these gold-bearing boulders.

Elrond project (100% Midland)

The final results of the 80 till samples collected over the summer, southwest of Harfang Exploration Inc.’s Serpent gold project, are pending.

Nunavik region

Ni-Cu Alliance with BHP in Nunavik

A three (3)-week prospecting program was completed in September and October under the Ni-Cu Alliance with BHP. This program was mainly designed as a ground follow-up of VTEM-type electromagnetic anomalies identified during the summer 2021 survey. More than 100 samples were collected, and assay results are pending.

Alliance with SOQUEM in the Labrador Trough

During the summer of 2021, two phases of prospecting totalling three weeks each were conducted in partnership with SOQUEM under the Labrador Trough Alliance. More than 900 samples were collected, and assay results are pending.

Cautionary statements

  • Grab samples are selective by nature and reported values are not necessarily indicative of mineralized zones.
  • The true thickness of reported intervals cannot be determined with the information currently available; intervals are thus reported in core length.
  • Mineralization occurring on the Fenelon Gold and Martiniere/Bug Lake projects held by Wallbridge are not necessarily indicative of mineralization that may be found on the Casault property held by Midland.

Quality Control

Drill core samples from the 2021 drill program at Casault were cut and bagged on site and transported to AGAT Laboratories Ltd. for analysis. Samples are crushed to 75% less than 2mm. A 250g riffle split is pulverized to 85% passing 75 microns. 50g samples are analyzed by fire assay and AAS. Samples >10g/t Au are automatically analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish or screen metallic analysis. To test for coarse free gold and for additional quality assurance and quality control, Wallbridge requests screen metallic analysis for samples containing visible gold. These and future assay results may vary from time to time due to re‒analysis for quality assurance and quality control.

Exploration program design and interpretation of results on Galinee and Chisaayuu projects is performed by qualified persons employing a Quality Assurance/Quality Control program consistent with industry best practices, including the use of standards and blanks with every 20 samples. Rock samples on the project are assayed for gold by standard 30-gram fire-assaying with inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES; Au-ICP21) or gravimetric finish (Au-GRA21) at ALS Minerals laboratories in Vancouver, British Columbia. All samples are also analysed for multi-elements, using four-acid ICP–AES method (ME-ICP61), also at ALS Minerals laboratories in Vancouver, British Columbia. Samples that exceed 1% copper, zinc, molybdenum or nickel are reanalyzed by four-acid ICP-AES optimized for high grades.

Timberline’s New Drilling at the Eureka Gold Project Significantly Expands the Water Well Zone

COEUR D’ALENE, ID / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2021 / Timberline Resources Corporation (OTCQB: TLRS; TSX-V: TBR) ("Timberline" or the "Company") announced…

COEUR D’ALENE, ID / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2021 / Timberline Resources Corporation (OTCQB: TLRS; TSX-V: TBR) (“Timberline” or the “Company”) announced today initial results from the 2021 drilling program at its 100%-controlled Eureka Project in Nevada. The Company commenced the program in July 2021, and recently resumed drilling after a ten-week hiatus due to lack of drill availability. These results are from the first five reverse circulation (RC) holes, comprising approximately 1,410 meters (4,626 feet). Timberline expects to complete at least an additional 5,200 meters (17,060 feet) of drilling before the end of December.

The first three (3) of these RC holes (BHSE-193 – 195) were step-outs that tested the extent of the Water Well Zone (WWZ), which is immediately east of the Company’s Lookout Mountain gold resource (Figure 1). Each of the three new drill holes in the WWZ intersected a significant thickness of gold mineralization at the base of the Dunderberg Shale, where it was expected to occur. These results have grown the WWZ appreciably, more than doubling the surface projection “footprint” of the gold mineralization.

The most significant new intercepts in these holes include:

  • 10.67 meters (m) at 2.36 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from 301.8m depth in BHSE-194;
    • including 6.01m at 2.98 g/t gold;
  • 16.76m at 1.74 g/t gold from 257.6m depth in BHSE-195;
    • including 3.05m at 4.56 g/t gold;
  • 19.81m at 1.38 g/t gold from 248.4m depth in BHSE-193.

At present, one reverse circulation drill continues work at the WWZ and Oswego Targets. The new core drilling contractor has begun mobilizing onto the Eureka Project.

Patrick Highsmith, Timberline’s President and CEO commented, “These new results are significant because they confirm an expanded footprint for this new zone of mineralization that remains open in three directions. Our 3D modeling of the Lookout Resource and the nearby targets has demonstrated that we can predict the stratigraphy much better now. The WWZ was right where we expected to encounter it. Now we are focused on developing our understanding of the controls on the +3 g/t gold mineralization that is present in every hole in the Water Well Zone so far. This is just the beginning of the 2021 drill program, so we expect to add several more holes into this new and growing zone of mineralization.”

Two additional holes tested other targets farther southwest. BHSE-197 was collared near the southwest corner of the historic Lookout Pit, and it intersected numerous intervals of low-grade gold mineralization and one significant interval of 7.62m at 0.82 g/t gold from 141.7m depth.

BHSE-196 was an exploration hole testing a new target well away from known mineralization. Other than narrow intervals of anomalous gold, it did not intercept significant mineralization.

Geology and Potential of the Water Well Zone

The WWZ is a downdip extension of the Lookout Mountain mineralization that was discovered by Timberline in 2015 (see Company news release dated February 14, 2015). Prior to this program, Timberline drilling has intercepted the zone six times, but two of the holes were at the margins or in a fault-attenuated interval (Table 1). The new drill holes in the zone are consistent with previously reported mineralization in thickness and in grade, and they extend the zone approximately 220m to the north-northeast and 150m to the northwest.

The WWZ has been a focus of considerable work in 2020 and 2021 because the gold grades are higher than the Lookout Mountain Resource, including a high-grade intercept from drill hole BHSE-187 reported in January 7, 2021. Seven holes passed through the entire thickness of the WWZ host horizon. In those holes, it averaged 18.9m thick with an average gold grade of 2.22 g/t. There were several intervals within those holes ranging from 3 to 7.7m thick in which the gold grade was higher than 4.5 g/t. The expanded footprint of the zone, if demonstrated to have continuity, has the potential to significantly grow the Lookout Mountain Resource.

The WWZ occupies a favorable horizon at the basal contact of the Dunderberg Shale with the Hamburg Dolomite (Figure 2). At this horizon, Timberline geologists have noted significant multi-staged collapse brecciation that likely accounts for the development of porosity and permeability. The mineralizing fluids exploited this horizon, evidenced by associated intense silicification, sulfidation, and carbonaceous replacement. The resulting jasperoid contains abundant fine sooty pyrite and oftentimes, the arsenic sulfide minerals orpiment and realgar. The shale and limestone above the gold mineralization often demonstrate calcite veining that passes into zones of argillic alteration. The dolomite below the contact is usually pervasively oxidized, weakly mineralized and decalcified and, in many areas, completely “sanded” by removal of all interstitial calcite. Jasperoid is present as irregular pods and masses of silicification along the contact with the Dunderberg Shale, replacing beds and forming locally cross-cutting veins and veinlets.

The heart of the Lookout Mountain resource occurs in the Dunderberg Shale near an easterly dipping fault termed the Highwall Fault. As the rock units also dip to the east, the mineralization in the WWZ is downdip of the main resource. From the cross-sectional view, the WWZ is open downdip to the east and it will likely tie into the main resource area updip to the west, but more drilling is needed. The Dunderberg host horizon is well understood and the 2021 drilling has successfully intercepted mineralization approximately where expected. However, the controls on the higher-grade gold in the WWZ are not yet understood. There are numerous faults crossing the area, forming a graben to the east that also hosts a large IP chargeability anomaly (Figure 1 and Figure 2). More drilling is needed to infill the WWZ and test various targets that may host the higher-grade part of the system.

A north-south long section view of the WWZ is shown in Figure 3. In this perspective, the drilled intercepts of the WWZ now span approximately 220 meters from south to north, more than double the long axis of the mineralization defined by the 2020 drilling. And the WWZ mineralization remains open to the north and south. The remainder of the 2021 drill program includes several holes testing the zone to the north, south, and west. At least two of the remaining holes in the area are planned to be drilled with core.

The gold mineralization in the WWZ is consistent with the geochemistry of Carlin-type gold deposits. It is generally highly enriched in arsenic, antimony, and thallium, but it is low in silver and only weakly enriched in zinc and lead. Mineralization is also very consistent once passing into the WWZ, rarely including gold grades of individual samples below 1.0 g/t.

Drilling Details

The current drill program will make use of both reverse circulation and diamond core drilling, but approximately 60% of the meterage will be RC drilling. Timberline has engaged a specialist drilling consultant to assist with contract negotiation, consumables, drilling muds, support equipment, and sampling procedures. The details of the first five holes are included in Table 2.

The sample recovery during the RC drilling program to date has been very good, and the gold grades have compared well between field duplicates, with few exceptions. Most of the drilling at the Water Well Zone is below the water table, so there is the possibility for loss of fine-grained material during RC drilling, which has been shown to under-report gold grade in other studies of RC drilling in Nevada. For this reason, Timberline will be targeting more diamond core holes into the heart of the WWZ during November and December.

Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Collection of reverse circulation samples was completed under the supervision of a Company representative. Personnel from Timberline or the drilling contractors transported the samples to Timberline’s secure Eureka facility, from which the samples were picked up by personnel from ALS USA Inc. (ALS) for sample preparation in Elko, Nevada. Quality control was monitored by the insertion of numerous blind certified standard reference materials, field duplicates, and blanks into each sample shipment. Drill samples were assayed by ALS for gold by fire assay of a 30-gram charge with an AA or ICP-ES finish (ALS code Au-AA23). The overlimits for gold samples assaying above 10 g/t were determined by a 30-gram fire assay with gravimetric finish. In addition, gold mineralized samples were submitted for multi-element analysis (33 elements) by four-acid digestion and ICP-ES determination (code ME-ICP61).

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2021 / Galway Metals Inc. (TSXV:GWM)(OTCQB:GAYMF)(the “Company” or “Galway”) is pleased to report that it has begun drilling on the Oak Bay property that was optioned in July, 2020 (Figure 1). Mineralization at Oak Bay and neighbouring Lily Hill consists of arsenopyrite-rich quartz veining in altered, silicified gabbro dykes in contact with sediments, both of which are mineralized – a similar geological setting to the South Zone. The South Zone is located 19 km to the east of Oak Bay and currently hosts the majority of Clarence Stream’s gold resource. The zone at Oak Bay has now been drill-delineated with strong consistent intersections over 110m of horizontal distance (strike length) (Figure 2). The zone is open in every direction. Most of the assays further down each hole are pending, as are holes 5-8 and 10-13.

Highlights for Galway’s initial drill program at Oak Bay include:

  • Hole OB-01 intersected 6.0 g/t Au over 3.3m, including 9.3 g/t Au over 1.1m, starting at a vertical depth of 13.8m
  • Hole OB-02 intersected 2.2 g/t Au over 0.8m, starting at a vertical depth of 18.2m
  • Hole OB-03 intersected 2.3 g/t Au over 6.65m, including 6.7 g/t Au over 0.6m, starting at a vertical depth of 5.4m
  • Hole OB-04 intersected 1.6 g/t Au over 4.65m, starting at a vertical depth of 6.2m
  • Hole OB-09 intersected 3.5 g/t Au over 4.2m, including 8.6 g/t Au over 0.6m, starting at a vertical depth of 31.8m
  • Hole OB-14intersected 5.1 g/t Au over 1.15m, starting at vertical depths of 4.2m
  • Hole OB-15 intersected 4.0 g/t Au over 2.35m, starting at a vertical depth of 3.7m
  • ** OB05-07 intersected 5.2 g/t Au over 2.5m,including 11.8 g/t Au over 0.5m,starting at a vertical depth of 13.2m
  • ** OB05-03 intersected 1.9 g/t Au over 5.5m, including 8.1 g/t Au over 0.5m, starting at a vertical depth of 50.2m

“We have been saying that Galway believes Clarence Stream is an important new gold district in North America – with every new discovery, this is becoming more self-evident. Now that drilling for the upcoming resource has been completed, Galway plans to accelerate its drilling of the many gold anomalies to further demonstrate Clarence Stream’s district scale. Galway plans to release the Clarence Stream resource update in Q4/21,” cites Robert Hinchcliffe, President and CEO of Galway Metals.

The 19 km Between Oak Bay and the South Zone is Highly Prospective

Between Oak Bay and the South Zone is a large multi-phase Gabbro Complex. The mineralized gabbro dykes at Oak Bay and the South Zone are thought to have originated from this complex. Galway has not yet drilled the gabbro complex or the 19 km between Oak Bay and the South Zone, except for the 3km trend further north that hosts the Adrian, George Murphy, Richard and Jubilee Zones (Figure 3).

The gabbro complex and the area north of it between Oak Bay and the South Zone hosts two of the three highest-grade glacial till anomalies (95 and 86 ppb Au) at Clarence Stream, extensively anomalous gold-in-soil anomalies that extend several km in both NE and NW directions, and boulders and chip samples up to 35.5 and 16.3 g/t Au. Galway plans to follow-up on the initial drill program at Oak Bay, and to drill several of the targets in this highly anomalous 19 km gap, as well as the gabbro complex in 2022.

Oak Bay and Lily Hill Host High-Grade Boulders and Chip Samples up to 43.0 g/t Au

The Oak Bay claims are host to widespread boulders with grades up to 18.0 g/t Au, while Lily Hill has chip samples to 43.0 g/t Au. Lily Hill is another optioned property just SE of Oak Bay, containing similar geology; hole LH07-01 (drilled in 2007 by previous operators) intersected 3.7 g/t Au over 3.0m, which has not been followed up since, where a 23.6m Gabbro dyke is entirely mineralized, with the zone in a contact breccia. Strong linear gold soil anomalies at Oak Bay are present grading up to 882 ppb Au, which is in the top 10 of the approximately 50,000 soil samples taken at Clarence Stream, while Lily Hill has soil values to 190 ppb Au. Cordierite alteration is present in the sediments that consist of siltstones and slate.

The Sawyer Brook Fault, the main conduit for gold-bearing fluids at Clarence Stream, is located close to the drilling at Oak Bay and Lily Hill. Oak Bay contains a 2km north-south horizontal (strike) length of drill holes (refer to August 25, 2020 press release) with mineralized gabbro along a magnetic high (gabbro is slightly magnetic whereas sediments are not), which continues north 5.0km to the Tower Hill showing that assayed as high as 89.1 g/t along a gabbro-sediment contact.

There is a 10 km+ long intrusion flanking the Oak Bay to Tower Hill area to the west; Clarence Stream is thought to be an intrusion-related gold system. All intrusions at Clarence Stream are encircled by one or more of gold-in glacial tills, soils, boulders and/or chip samples, all of which exist along this 10 km+ Oak Bay to Tower Hill trend.

New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program

Galway would like to acknowledge financial support from the New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program, which partially funded drilling of the GMZ, Jubilee, and Richard Zones.

Geology and Mineralization

The discovery of the Richard Zone in hole 12 contains elevated levels of bismuth, arsenopyrite, and antimony, in multiple quartz veins, with tungsten in the vicinity. This is similar to other Clarence Stream deposits, which can be characterized as intrusion-related quartz-vein hosted gold deposits. The Richard Zone contains multiple zones of quartz veining with sulfides and sericite alteration. In general, mineralization at Clarence Stream consists of 10-70% quartz stockworks and veins with 1-5% fine pyrite plus pyrrhotite plus arsenopyrite plus stibnite in sericite altered sediments. The Jubilee mineralization consists of 2%-5% disseminated pyrite, sphalerite, galena, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, and pyrrhotite in sediments with white to smoky grey quartz veining. Locally there is up to 10% sphalerite and semi-massive galena veinlets.The 2.5 km trend that hosts the GMZ, Richard and Jubilee Zones contains a mineralized mafic intrusive locally – similar to the South Zone, which currently hosts most of the property’s last reported gold resources (September 2017). A more complete description of Clarence Stream’s geology and mineralization can be found at

About the Company

Galway Metals is well capitalized with two projects in Canada: Clarence Stream, an emerging gold district in New Brunswick, and Estrades, the former producing, high-grade, gold-rich VMS polymetallic mine in Quebec. The Company began trading on January 4, 2013, after its successful spinout to existing shareholders from Galway Resources following the completion of the US$340 million sale of that company. With substantially the same management team and Board of Directors, Galway Metals is keenly intent on creating similar value as it had with Galway Resources.
