MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / September 17, 2021 / Vior Inc. (“Vior”), (TSXV:VIO)(FRANKFURT:VL51) is pleased to announce field exploration results that demonstrate the high-grade gold potential at its district-scale Belleterre gold project (“Belleterre“) in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of Quebec. Of 1,328 samples completed during the Summer 2021 exploration program at Belleterre and currently being processed at the laboratory, these first gold results consist of a targeted validation sampling process where lab results were expedited in preparation for the upcoming Phase 1 Fall drill program. The Vior technical team’s objective is to validate the presence of gold grades and the precise locations of historic gold showings in the Brownfield areas at Belleterre. The results indicate that out of 38 samples recently sent to the laboratory, the three highest grade samples returned respectively 274.9 grams per tonne (“g/t“) gold (“Au“), 121.3 g/t Au and 77.4 g/t Au. Another 17 samples contained values between 66.5 g/t Au and 10 g/t Au with all but one of the remaining samples containing gold content (see Table 1 and maps below). In addition, these results validate over 10 historic gold showings and confirm the high exploration potential at Belleterre.

Mark Fedosiewich, President & CEO of Vior, stated, “These field results are exciting and confirm the presence of significant gold from the historical showings. We also know that previous drill programs in the Brownfield areas at Belleterre were only undertaken to shallow depths and were non continuous along strike. These results validate the hard work of the exploration and management team through 2021 to consolidate this highly prospective mining camp, and we are encouraged more than ever that Belleterre offers a tremendous exploration opportunity for our shareholders.”

Vior is also pleased to release the results of its high-resolution magnetic survey (see Figure 1) covering the entire Belleterre Project. This high-resolution magnetic survey is a valuable exploration tool that will help Vior’s exploration team focus on the continuities of the main gold bearing structures within the known historical high-grade zones along strike and at depth including past producing Belleterre gold mine with a historic production of 2.18 Mt at 10.7 g/t Au (source DV-89-01 from MRNQ: Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles du Québec) and Aubelle deposit with a non 43-101 compliant current resource of 353.7 Kt at 3.6 g/t Au (source DV-89-01 from MRNQ). This helicopter-borne magnetic survey was carried out by Novatem Inc., of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, QC for a total of 6,750 linear kilometers with line spacing every 50 meters.

Vior’s Executive Vice-President, Laurent Eustache, stated, “In conjunction with the new structural interpretation derived from our new high-resolution magnetic survey and the compilation of historical data and geological modeling (with our consultant 3DGeo Solution Inc.), we are now in an excellent position to better define the high-potential drill targets for our upcoming 4,000-metre Fall drill program. By incorporating all of the various technical data sets available from the consolidated area, which has never been attempted due to the previously fragmented ownership positions at Belleterre, we are now able to build a cohesive 3D structural model. We are confident that our new systematic and holistic approach will play a major positive role in our overall exploration strategy to help unlock the full potential of the Belleterre mining camp.”

QA/QC Controls

Vior has implemented a quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program to ensure sampling and analysis of all exploration work is conducted in accordance with industry best practices, including certified reference material (CRM) standards and blank material inserted every 20 samples. The gold analyses were completed by fire-assays with an atomic absorption finish (TMT-G5B). Repeats were carried out by fire-assay followed by gravimetric testing (TMT-G5C) on each sample containing more than 3.0 g/t Au. Metallic Sieve (MS) on 350 grams of material was carried out on samples that presented a great variation in gold content or as per recommendation from the laboratory. All samples from the Belleterre project were analyzed at Activation Laboratories Ltd (Actlabs) in Sainte-Germaine-Boulé, QC.

Scorpio Gold – Arranges Short-Term Credit Facility with Board

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 22, 2021 / Scorpio Gold Corporation (“Scorpio Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SGN) reports that certain of the directors of the Company have agreed to provide the Company with a short- term credit facility in order to maintain its operations over the short-term. The proceeds of the advances made under the credit facility will be used to bridge the Company’s activities until all Goldwedge assays have been announced so that an equity placement can be conducted later in the year.

As announced on September 29, 2021, the pending assays from the Goldwedge underground drill program will be announced upon receipt and analysis. The drill program was focused on defining the on-strike and down-dip continuity of mineralization intersected in the 2020 drilling program (July 27, 2020 news release) as well as testing new areas with the potential to define a mineral resource base.

Future drilling will test the Company’s structural interpretation that mineralization at Goldwedge could connect with mineralization in the West Pit area of the Company’s adjacent and proximal Manhattan Mine project. Goldwedge is a fully permitted underground mine and a 400 ton per day mill facility. The Manhattan Property includes 2 former producing mines, the Reliance Mine, which reportedly produced ~59,000 tons grading 0.435 oz/ton from 1932 to 1941, and the Manhattan Mine East and West pits, which produced ~236,000 oz. from 1974-1990. The deposits lie along the northwest-trending Reliance StructuralZone, which is considered the most predominant ore controlling structure in the region. The Reliance trend continues 4 km southeast to Scorpio Gold’s Keystone-Jumbo project area.

The credit facility is unsecured and interest free for US$500,000 to be drawn in advances at a minimum of US$100,000 over the next few months. All advances must be repaid within the earlier of Scorpio Gold closing a private placement more than C$1,000,000 and January 1, 2022.

Canstar Adopts Advance Notice By-law

 

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – October 22, 2021 – CANSTAR RESOURCES INC. (TSXV:ROX) & (OTC:CSRNF) (“Canstar” or the “Company”) announces…

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – October 22, 2021 – CANSTAR RESOURCES INC. (TSXV:ROX) & (OTC:CSRNF) (“Canstar” or the “Company”) announces that its board of directors approved the adoption of an advance notice by-law (the “Advance Notice By-law”), establishing a framework for advance notice of nominations of directors by shareholders of the Company (“Shareholders”). Among other things, the Advance Notice By-law fixes certain deadlines by which Shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that must be included in the notice.  

The Advance Notice By-law provides a clear process for Shareholders to follow for director nominations and sets out a reasonable time frame for the submissions of nominees and the accompanying information. The Advance Notice By-law will help to ensure that all Shareholders receive adequate notice of the nominations to be considered at a Shareholder meeting at which directors are to be elected and can thereby exercise their voting rights in an informed manner. The Advance Notice By-law is similar to the advance notice by-laws adopted by many other Canadian public companies.

More specifically, the Advance Notice By-law requires advance notice to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election as a director of the Company are made by Shareholders other than pursuant to a request for a meeting or through a Shareholder proposal, in each case in accordance with the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “OBCA”)

In the case of an annual meeting of Shareholders, notice to the Company must be given not less than 30 or more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. In the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be given not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.

In the case of a special meeting of Shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to the Company must be given not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

The Advance Notice By-law is effective immediately and will be placed before Shareholders for approval, confirmation and ratification at the next annual and special meeting of Shareholders of the Company to be held on November 29, 2021 (the “Meeting”). Pursuant to the provisions of the OBCA, the Advance Notice By-law will cease to be effective unless approved, ratified and confirmed by a resolution adopted by a majority of the votes cast by Shareholders at the Meeting.
