Trench Metals Corp.

Vancouver, Canada - TheNewswire – October 17Th, 2021 - Trench Metals Corp. (the “Company”) (TSXV:TMC) (FWB:33H2) announces that it has been granted an option to acquire 100% of the Higginson Lake Uranium Project, in Athabasca, Saskatchewan.  The project covers an area of approximately 2312 hectares and is 52 kilometers northeast of the town of Stony Rapids, which is accessible by Highway 905 and 964.  The Higginson Lake Uranium Project adjoins claims which host historic uranium reserves.  The Higginson Lake Uranium Project host two historic drill indicated reserves, totaling 4,800,000 lbs of U308.

Mineralization at Higginson Lake is thought to be controlled by the Black Lake Fault, a northeast striking regional fault that transects the Athabasca Basin. Previous exploration at Higginson Lake has identified twelve historic showings. Significantly, the Corrigan Lake Showing, located 389m north of Corrigan Lake, was explored by trenching and diamond drilling by Dee Exploration Ltd., which published in the Northern Miner a historical drill indicated reserve of 2,000,000 tons grading greater than 0.1% U3O8, or 4,400,000lbs U3O8. (Saskatchewan Mineral Deposit Index File 1656). In addition, Palmor Industries identified a drill indicated reserve of 200,000 tons, averaging 2lbs/ton U3O8 at the Higginson Lake Showing, 550m northwest of the Corrigan Lake Showing, this being an additional 400,000 lbs of U3O8. (Saskatchewan Mineral Deposit Index File 1744).

The historical mineral resource estimates presented above used categories that do not conform to current CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves as outlined in National Instrument 43-101.  A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify any of the historical estimates as current mineral resources and as such the Company is treating them as historical resource estimates. Readers are cautioned that the historical mineral resource estimates do not mean or imply that economic deposits exist on the Project.

Under the terms of the Option, the Company is able to acquire the Higginson Lake Uranium Project from an arms-length vendor in consideration for a series of cash payments totaling $350,000, and by incurring exploration expenditures of at least $200,000 over a two-year period.  Following acquisition of the Project, it will remain subject to a one-percent net smelter returns royalty on commercial production which can be acquired at any time in consideration for a payment of $1,000,000.

The Company is extremely pleased to have made this strategic acquisition on behalf of its shareholders. The project comes with a trove of historical data and observations, all of which is being combined into a comprehensive exploration plan to guide the Company’s future development.

Dr. Peter Born, P.Geo., is the designated qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and is responsible for, and has approved, the technical information contained in this release.

Mineral resources are not mineral reserves, and do not have demonstrated economic viability, but do have reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction. Measured and indicated resources are sufficiently well defined to allow geological and grade continuity to be reasonably assumed and permit the application of technical and economic parameters in assessing the economic viability of the resource. Inferred resources are estimated on limited information not sufficient to verify geological and grade continuity or to allow technical and economic parameters to be applied. Inferred resources are too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them to enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is no certainty that Measured or Indicated mineral resources can be upgraded to mineral reserves through continued exploration and positive economic assessment.

Information Concerning Estimates Of Mineral Reserves And Measured, Indicated And Inferred Resources

This press release has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the securities laws in effect in Canada, which differ in certain material respects from the disclosure requirements of United States securities laws. The terms “mineral reserve”, “proven mineral reserve” and “probable mineral reserve” are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (the “CIM”) – CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, adopted by the CIM Council, as amended (the “CIM Standards”). These definitions differ significantly from the definitions in the disclosure requirements promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) applicable to domestic reporting companies. Investors are cautioned that information contained in this Annual Information Form may not be comparable to similar information made public by United States companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements under the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations of the SEC thereunder.

Phoenix Gold Resources Intersects 47.79 M of 0.85% Copper Successfully Completing Initial Drilling Phase

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – October 12, 2021 – Phoenix Gold Resources Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV:PXA) (OTC:PGRCF) (Frankfurt:5DE)…

Share this article:

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - October 12, 2021 – Phoenix Gold Resources Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV:PXA) (OTC:PGRCF) (Frankfurt:5DE) is pleased to provide initial assay results from 100 of 300 samples collected from the core in diamond drill holes YH21-04, -06, -08 and -09 selected for obvious massive sulphide mineralization.  The diamond drill holes were completed as part of the Company’s successful first phase of drilling on the York Harbour Copper-Zinc-Silver Project situated 27 kilometres west of Corner Brook, Newfoundland.

Highlights intersections from initial assay results:

  • - YH21-04 with 9.51 m of 1.69% copper, 125.14 gpt cobalt, 0.13% zinc, and 1.43 gpt silver

(including 1.54 m of 5.2% copper, 287.12 gpt cobalt, 0.07% zinc, and 2.57 gpt silver)

  • - YH21-06 with 47.79 m of 0.85% copper, 91.82 gpt cobalt, 0.57% zinc and 1.53 gpt silver

(including 1.60 m of 9.39% copper, 645.44 gpt cobalt, 0.18% zinc, and 6.9 gpt silver)

(including 5.80 m of 3.52% copper, 283.03 gpt cobalt, 0.09% zinc, and 2.80 gpt silver)

  • - YH21-08 with 6.6 m of 0.62% copper, 66.92 gpt cobalt, 0.65% zinc and 3.37 gpt silver

    - YH21-09 with 9.54 m of 1.69% copper, 238.73 gpt cobalt, 0.11% zinc and 2.83 gpt silver

The drilling program was successful in validating historical drilling results with 6 of the 9 drill holes intersecting massive sulphide mineralization and suggesting even further mineralization extending beyond the historical ‘A’, ‘G’ and ‘H’ zones. Two diamond drill holes encountered a wide fault zone, and a third hole intersected a section of the 400 Level adit and was not completed to its intended depth.  

Drill hole YH21-09 is especially significant since this drill hole was collared to intersect the 'A' zone at depth, but immediately intersected massive sulphide mineralization at the bedrock surface. This intercept indicates that there is significant exploration potential for discovering additional massive sulphide mineralization both along strike and beneath the upper mined portion of the 'A' zone.

The following table summarizes the intervals and weighted average grades for the 100 samples that were selected for their identified massive sulphide mineralization within the 4 drill holes.  Results for the remaining 200 drill core samples that include further visual sulphide mineralization are anticipated in the next few weeks.

The above intervals are drilling lengths, not true widths, because the true orientation of the mineralization has not yet been established.

It is interesting to also note that there are significantly elevated cobalt values, ranging from less than 100 to 918 ppm, commonly associated with the higher copper grades.  More studies will be carried on this valuable accessory element once the balance of the Phase 1 analytical results have been received.

Andrew Lee, President and CEO commented “As we hoped, the preliminary assay results from our Phase 1 drilling program have successfully demonstrated the copper potential at York Harbour and validated near-surface mineralization. The results from the remaining 200 drill core samples which are expected shortly, will further enhance our knowledge and understanding of the project as we enter Phase 2 drilling.”

QA / QC Comments

Three hundred Phase 1 diamond drill core samples of sawn core have been collected from core lengths usually varying from 0.3 to 1.50 m depending upon geological and mineralogical constraints.  Of this total, one hundred core samples were initially delivered to Activation Laboratories (“ActLabs”) in Ancaster, Ontario, an ISO/IEC-accredited laboratory.  There they were crushed to a nominal minus 2 mm, split into representative sub-samples and then pulverized to at least 95% minus 105 microns before collecting sub-sample pulps from each of the core samples.

All sub-sample pulps were initially analyzed for 36 elements using ICP QC procedures which included fusing with Na2O2.  The fused samples were then dissolved in purified water and acidified with concentrated nitric and hydrochloric acids. The solutions were then measured by an ICP.  Samples are analyzed with a minimum of 10 certified reference materials, and every 10th sample was prepared and analyzed in duplicate plus a blank is prepared every 30 samples and analyzed.  In addition, a 5 g sub-sample pulp for each core sample was analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion techniques with an atomic absorption finish (‘FA/AA’).  On each tray of 42 samples there is two blanks, three sample duplicates and 2 certified reference materials, one high and one low (QC 7 out of 42 samples).

Based upon the initial ICP results, any element returning predetermined over-limit values, specifically for copper, zinc, silver and gold, were automatically assayed using conventional assay procedures.  There were no over limit gold values but there were several copper, zinc and silver over- limit ICP results.  For each of these samples a 5 g sub-sample was split and assayed using conventional fire assay procedures with an atomic absorption finish (‘FA/AA’).  The laboratory QA/QC procedures for these samples were the same as for the previous gold FA/AA analyses.
