TORONTO, March 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 79North Inc. (CSE: JQ; OTCQB: SVNTF; FRA: 6120) (“79North” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has entered into a drilling contract for up to 2,000 metres of diamond drilling at the high grade Witlage target of the Nassau gold project, Suriname.

Witlage Target
In 2021, drilling intersections were obtained in altered and sheared volcanic rocks, fine-grained felsic intrusive rocks, and fine-grained mafic dikes crosscut by quartz veins with associated pyrite. Gold values range up to 383.20 grams gold per tonne over 1.5 metres in highly oxidized saprolite and up to 99.58 grams gold per tonne over one metre in fresh bedrock. The highest gold grade of 383.20 grams gold per tonne occurs in a zone of highly oxidized saprolite that may be an oxide blanket associated with the shear zone observed in fresh bedrock. The gold-bearing oxide zone has an approximate thickness of 10 metres. This next Phase of drilling will start in the area of the high-grade drilling intersections and work out incrementally from those intersections.
