Mirasol Resources Announces Start of Drilling at Gorbea and Provides Exploration Update

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mirasol Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MRZ) (OTCPK: MRZLF) (the “Company” or “Mirasol”)…

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — [nxtlink id="269296"]Mirasol Resources Ltd.[/nxtlink] (TSX-V: MRZ) (OTCPK: MRZLF) (the “Company” or “Mirasol”) today provided an update on exploration plans for the current field season and is also pleased to report that drilling has commenced at its Newcrest-partnered Gorbea Au project in Northern Chile.

Tim Heenan, Mirasol’s President stated: “We have made excellent progress on our self-funded and partnered projects and are off to a very strong start this field season. Drilling is currently underway at our partnered projects Gorbea, Nord and Virginia. We are very excited to be preparing for a maiden ground exploration program at our self-funded Sobek project to follow up on compelling magnetic features identified in the recently completed aeromagnetic survey. We are also currently conducting a deep-penetrating geophysical survey at our self-funded Sascha Marcelina project, which will be followed up by deep drilling to further test the principal sulphide-rich Pellegrini breccia target.”

A webinar with Tim Heenan, the Company’s President and Patrick Evans, the Executive Chair will be held on December 7th, 2021 at 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET. A short presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. Registration can be completed using this link.

Figure 1: Mirasol’s Project Portfolio

Chile Update:

Newcrest plans to complete five reverse circulation drill holes for 2,500m on the Atlas and El Dorado prospects. Atlas is the most advanced prospect in the Gorbea high sulfidation epithermal (“HSE”) Au-Ag property package and has been the focus of Newcrest’s drilling activities to date. The El Dorado prospect is a new target that will be drill tested for the first time.

Atlas hosts widespread Au-Ag mineralization within the central breccia complex, which remains open to the north, east and southwest. Newcrest is planning to drill two holes at Atlas for 1,000m to test potential extensions and higher-grade mineralized zones.

El Dorado is located 10 km to the southeast of Atlas and the area between these two prospects is covered by post mineralization mafic volcanics. El Dorado comprises mid-Miocene felsic-andesitic lavas and volcanic breccias that have been intruded by daci-andesite domes and polymictic breccias with clasts of vuggy silica, which are host to a large (3.1 x 1.4 km) northwest trending zone of advanced argillic alteration. A geochemical soil sampling program completed by Newcrest has defined an anomalous zone of pathfinder elements including Sb, As, Se and Bi that is associated with the margins of a dome complex in the southern part of the property. A strong association of Bi, Mo, As, Se, Hg is also seen to be closely associated with zones of steam heated alteration in both the northern and southern parts of the prospect. Newcrest also completed five survey lines of Controlled Source Audio-Magnetotellurics (“CSAMT”), totalling 11.4 km, identifying multiple highly resistive (>10,000 ohm), subvertical zones along the margins of the southern outcropping dacitic dome complex that are coincident with steam-heated and alunite-altered polymictic breccias. Based on this surface work, Newcrest will drill three scout holes for 1,500m to test the north and south zones, which are characterized by coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies in prospective geology.

  • Sobek Cu Project – Self-funded

The processing of the high-resolution aeromagnetic survey has been completed and multiple highly prospective geophysical targets have been identified. Preparations for a ground exploration program at Sobek are well advanced and Mirasol expects to complete an initial campaign before the end of the year. This program will assess the potential for porphyry Cu-Au and epithermal Au-Ag mineralization with geochemical sampling, detailed geological mapping and potentially additional ground (Induced Polarization (“IP”) and magnetics) geophysical surveys over priority prospects.

  • Altazor Au/Ag Project – Self-funded

Altazor is a drill-ready project with both a centrally located Maricunga-style Au-(Cu) porphyry target and a HSE Au-Ag target further to the south under post alteration young capping volcanic flows. Mirasol is considering self-funding an initial 2,000m drill program to test these two targets, but is also assessing partner opportunities to advance the project aggressively. Engagement with the local community on exploration plans is progressing.

First Quantum is preparing to further advance and test the porphyry Cu target previously delineated at the Coronación project during the current field season. Surface sampling, alteration and geological mapping and geophysical surveys completed to date have outlined an attractive porphyry target that displays characteristics similar to other Miocene age porphyry Au-(Cu) systems in the highly productive Maricunga belt.

  • Rubi Cu Project – Under Option to Mine Discovery Fund Pty Ltd.

Mirasol recently reported the results of a 1,887m drill program completed at the Rubi Cu porphyry project, which identified a large and strongly developed porphyry-style alteration system. A deep-sensing IP and magnetotellurics (“MT”) geophysical program is planned to be completed in Q1 2022 in preparation for follow-up drilling at the Lithocap and Zafiro targets.

  • Nord Polymetallic Project – Under Option with Encantada SpA

Drilling is ongoing at Nord to test the multiple north-northeast trending mineralized corridors identified on the property. Encantada has completed three drill holes located within the Mirasol property for a total of 500m as part of a 1,200m program.

  • Inca Gold – Self-funded

A geophysical survey focused on the Au anomaly outlined at the Vania porphyry Au-Cu prospect is expected to be completed in Q1 2022. Vania sits within a prospective structural setting within a strong north-northeast structural corridor which hosts the Inca del Oro porphyry to the south and the giant El Salvador mine to the north.

Argentina Update:

  • Sascha Marcelina Au/Ag Project – Self-funded

A deep penetrating IP geophysics program is underway at the Pellegrini target to follow up on the mineralization encountered during the Phase I drill program. A 450m-deep hole is planned for early December to test whether the broad interval of mineralization returned in hole PEL-DDH-005 is peripheral to a larger mineralized breccia body extending to depth and laterally.

The Phase III drill program at Virginia is progressing well, with 2,437m completed in 15 holes in proximity to the current Virginia Ag resource. Drilling is now focused on the Central and East zones at the Santa Rita target, 15 km north-northwest of the Virginia resource area, which is characterized by outcropping epithermal vein structures and zones of sheeted veinlets where surface rock chip sampling has returned encouraging Au and Ag results. Five holes for approx. 500m are planned at this prospect to test the continuation of Au-Ag mineralization at depth.

  • Libanesa Au/Ag Project – Under Option to Golden Arrow Resources Corp.

Golden Arrow has initiated its surface exploration program at Libanesa to refine targets for a drill program expected to commence in the first quarter of 2022. Reconnaissance rock chip sampling in proximity to the key prospects and soil (LAG) sampling lines have already been completed.

This season, Patagonia Gold will be advancing with the surface exploration work at Homenaje, which is located just to the south of their Cap Oeste operation. Exploration activities to define drill targets are to include detailed geological mapping, channel geochemical sampling across exposed structures, ground magnetics and IP geophysics surveys over priority targets.


Drilling is now ongoing on three projects (Gorbea, Nord and Virginia), with a fourth (Sascha Marcelina) to be drill tested shortly, for a cumulative 6,500m to be drilled by the end of 2021. Further drilling is anticipated in early 2022 as Mirasol and its partners are actively working to advance five additional projects to a drill-ready stage. This represents another active exploration season for Mirasol and will support strong news flow over the next 6 to 9 months as results are reported.

Ethos Samples 2,571 g/t Au at Titan, and Identifies Additional Targets, Toogood Project, Newfoundland

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 24, 2021) – Ethos Gold Corp. ("Ethos" or the "Company") (TSXV: ECC) (OTCQB: ETHOF) (FSE: 1ET) is…

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 24, 2021) – [nxtlink id="269014"]Ethos Gold Corp.[/nxtlink] (“Ethos” or the “Company“) (TSXV: ECC) (OTCQB: ETHOF) (FSE: 1ET) is pleased to announce additional bonanza grade outcrop samples at the newly named Quinlan and Titan showings in its first pass exploration program at the Toogood property which encompasses 118km2 of mineral claims on New World Island, Newfoundland.


  • At the Titan showing, additional grab samples with local visible gold graded 2,571.60, 1,146.87, 310.40, 236.86 g/t Au (Figures 1, 2). New stripping and detailed geological mapping and sampling have identified a 40m by 10m wide mineralized zone, open along strike and to depth. Gold is hosted in quartz-ankerite veins within altered shale and greywacke, likely emplaced along west-northwest trending structures. A total of 50 channel samples across five separate channels (total 27.94m) have been collected to test the continuity of mineralization outside of the known visible gold. Channel assays remain pending. Note that surface samples are grab/select samples and are not necessarily representative of mineralization hosted on the property.
  • At the newly named Quinlan showing, additional assays of 229.88, 43.07, 19.09, 13.1, 10.79, 5.60, and 4.12 g/t Au are reported from composite chip and grab samples of quartz vein material hosted in an altered felsic dike (Figures 1, 3). New stripping of the outcrop and subsequent geological mapping, and sampling has identified a 90m by 15m wide mineralized zone, open to depth and concentrated in along north-northeast trending structure. A total of 45 channel samples across seven separate channels (total length sampled of 23.5m) have been collected to test the continuity of mineralization outside of the known visible gold. Channel assays are pending.
  • A new showing, Sherwood has been identified approximately 1.6km south-east of the Quinlan Showing on the intersection two northeast trending structures (Figure 1,4). Following up on a 2.11 g/t float sample collected earlier in the season in an area of limited outcrop, multiple outcrop/subcrop of felsic dike and quartz fragments have been uncovered through test pits. Subsequently, a total of 883 soil samples were collected across the target, focused on along the Virgin Arm Fault and related structures. Initial XRF analysis of the soils indicate a large elongate As anomaly with up to 5551 ppm As aligned with the Virgin Arm Fault for a strike length of approximately 800m. In addition, 32 of the 833 soil samples that were analysed using the XRF were positive for Au3. Visible gold was panned from a number of soils samples with positive Au and high anomalous As XRF results (Figure 4). Local outcrop stripping is ongoing at the core target at Sherwood which will be followed by detailed mapping and sampling.

Alex Heath, CFA., President and CEO stated: “Titan and Quinlan continue to develop into robust showings as progressive and systematic exploration expands our geological knowledge of the area. With the addition of Sherwood as priority target, we are encouraged by the untapped prospectivity of the project.”

Additional Exploration

Newly acquired LiDAR data and Airborne Magnetic Survey continue to be processed and analyzed. Prospecting and localized geological mapping is ongoing and follow up on key target areas identified in historical sampling, LiDAR and geophysics. In addition, GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (“GoldSpot”) has undertaken a thorough analysis on all available data over the property and has also used advanced statistical methods to process and treat LiDAR data recently acquired by Ethos. With this data, GoldSpot used machine learning techniques to automatically identify lineaments. In their process GoldSpot used its proprietary deep learning “Outcrop Detection” tool to assist Ethos field team to spend time more efficiently in the field.

1 Historical assay values have not been independently verified by the Company and a potential investor should not place undue reliance on historical results when making an investment decision, nor should they be used as the sole criterion for making investment decisions. There is no assurance that the Company can reproduce such results or that the historical results described therein will be realized.
2 “Best surface samples” are grab / select samples and not necessarily representative of mineralization hosted on the property.
3 XRF analytical values for Au are considered unreliable, however positive Au results are considered indicative of the presence of Au within the sample(s).. All of the XRF soil analysis are used for rapid and efficient targeting of potential mineralised zones.

Toogood Gold Property Geology Overview

Toogood Project lies at the northeast extent of the Exploits Subzone (Dunnage Zone) of Central Newfoundland and is underlain mostly by the Ordovician Dunnage Melange and the Badger Belt (Figure 3). The Exploits Subzone area trends 200km northeast / southwest across the island of Newfoundland, and hosts most of the significant gold deposits in the province including Marathon Gold’s Valentine Project which hosts 3.14 Moz. M&I at 1.72 g/t (NI 43-101 Technical Report & Feasibility Study on the Valentine Gold Project – April 15, 2021). Gold mineralization on the Toogood Project is hosted by a suite of Devonian felsic dykes which cross-cut the property, emplaced in the latter stages of a polyphase tectonic history. Gold mineralization is associated with arsenopyrite, pyrite, trace chalcopyrite, and fine-grained native gold within pervasive sericite altered rocks, and concentrated along intersections between late-stage conjugate brittle faults.

Analytical Procedure

All 2021 samples assayed and pertaining to this press release were completed by Eastern Analytical Limited (ISO 17025:2005) located at Springdale, Newfoundland by the metallic screen or fire assay with an AA finish method.

Soil powder samples were analyzed by a Reflex Delta Model DP-2000-CC using Innov-X Delta advanced PC software. Prior to the start of analyses each day a routine calibration check was performed on the instrument using a Reflex Standard “cal check” coin.

Pancon Intersects 62 Meters of 1.0 g/t Gold 150 Meters South of Former Brewer Gold Mine

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – November 24, 2021) – Pancontinental Resources Corporation (TSXV: PUC) (OTCQB: PUCCF) ("Pancon" or the "Company") provides…

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – November 24, 2021) – [nxtlink id="269394"]Pancontinental Resources Corporation[/nxtlink] ([nxtlink id="269394"]TSXV: PUC[/nxtlink]) (OTCQB: PUCCF) (“Pancon” or the “Company”) provides drill results for diamond drill holes 13, 14 and 15 at its flagship Brewer Gold & Copper Project in South Carolina, USA (see Table 1 and Figure 1).


  • Hole 15 intersected 62.4 meters of 1.03 g/t Au and 0.15% Cu, including the previously reported interval of 20.2 meters of 2.25 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu, and 8.50 meters of 3.32 g/t Au and 0.65% Cu (see September 8, 2021 news release)
  • Hole 15 intersected an additional 19 meters of 0.31 g/t Au starting at a 4-meter vertical depth
  • Hole 14B intersected 106.6 meters of 0.31 g/t Au
  • Hole 13 interested 42.35 meters of 0.42 g/t Au, including 7 meters of 0.60 g/t Au and 0.23% Cu

Pancon Exploration Manager and Qualified Person, Patrick Quigley, stated: “We continue to be encouraged by the extent of mineralized breccia and the intensity of alteration encountered in recent drilling. Hole 15 was drilled on the northern edge of a package of strongly altered and deformed volcaniclastic rocks that are interpreted to represent the top of the Brewer volcanic sequence and historically have only been tested by shallow condemnation drilling. The mineralized interval in hole 15 supports the idea that these volcanic sediments overlie the breccia(s) that host the Brewer ore body and highlights the potential for significant gold mineralization to be discovered outside of the former Brewer mine.”

Pancon President and CEO, Layton Croft, added: “These new drill results suggest we may have discovered a new zone of gold-copper mineralization separate from the former Brewer mine. If true, this is significant and opens up a new priority target zone at least 150 meters south of the former mine. Ever since gold was first mined at Brewer in the 1800s, until now, the focus was always on the single mineralized breccia ore body exposed on the Brewer property. Pancon’s step-out drilling and analysis, demonstrates the potential for more than one, and possibly multiple, mineralized breccias bodies. As Patrick and his technical team continues updating our Brewer Geologic & Discovery Model (see October 18, 2021 news release), we are constantly improving our knowledge and enhancing our targets for the next round of drilling (see Figure 2).”

Qualified Person
The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101 and reviewed and approved by Patrick Quigley, MSc, CPG-12116, a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control Statement, Notes and Assumptions
Phase 2 exploration diamond core drilling was HQ and NQ size. The core was logged and marked for sampling and assaying by geologists contracted by Pancon. Samples, typically 1.5 meters in length, were sawn in half using a diamond core saw and one-half of the core was placed in sample bags and tagged with unique sample numbers, while the remaining half was kept in the core box for storage. Each bagged core sample was shipped to SGS Labs in Ontario, Canada, where it was dried, crushed and pulverized to >80% passing -200 mesh.

Gold was analyzed by fire assay (30 g) with an AAS (atomic absorption) finish, with a lower detection limit of 0.005 g/t gold. Samples containing greater than 10.0 g/t gold were analyzed by fire assay with a gravimetric finish. Multielement analyses, including base metals and rare earth elements, were analyzed with ICP-MS/ICP-AES (inductively coupled argon plasma mass spectrometry/atomic emission spectroscopy). Strict sampling and QA/QC protocols are followed, and assay integrity is monitored internally with a quality control program including the insertion of standards, blanks and duplicates in the sample stream on a regular basis.

About Pancon
Pancontinental Resources Corp. ([nxtlink id="269394"]TSXV: PUC[/nxtlink]) (OTCQB: PUCCF), or Pancon, is a Canadian junior mining company exploring the rich, underexplored Carolina Slate Belt in the southeastern USA. In January 2020, Pancon won the exclusive right to explore and purchase the former Brewer Gold Mine property, with an option period through October 2023. Between 1987-1995, Brewer produced 178,000 ounces of oxide gold from open pits that extended to 65-meter depths, where gold (Au) and copper (Cu) sulphides were exposed but could not be processed by the oxide heap leach operation. Pancon’s 100%-owned, 1,960-acre Jefferson Gold Project nearly completely surrounds the 1,000-acre Brewer property. The Brewer-Jefferson area of interest, in Chesterfield County, South Carolina, is 12 kilometers along trend from the producing Haile Gold Mine, which produced 101,600 ounces of gold in the first half of 2021 ( Brewer is a large, epithermal, high sulphidation gold-copper system driven by a sub-volcanic intrusive, possibly connected to a large copper-gold porphyry system at depth (Schmidt, R.G., 1978, The Potential for Porphyry Copper-Molybdenum Deposits in the Eastern United States, U.S. Geological Survey).
