Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 19, 2022) – Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSXV: BRO) (OTCQX: BRKCF) (“Barksdale” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce assay results from 8 additional drill holes from its Phase I, 5,000-meter drilling program at the Cerro Verde zone, San Javier project Sonora. These latest results continue to confirm continuity of drilled mineralization, as well as expansion of the mineralization footprint, including both oxide and sulfide copper.

Drilling Highlights:

  • Drilling has continued to confirm and expand the footprint of the Cerro Verde zone with key results including 47m of 0.75% copper from 138-185m (SJ21-28) and 39m of 0.61% copper from 21-60m (SJ21-24), and 6m of 0.90% copper from 102-108m (SJ21-14).
  • Oxide gold intercepts in hole SJ21-29, including 15m grading 0.73 g/t gold and 8m grading 0.84 g/t gold, have extended the gold bearing portion at Cerro Verde by approximately 60m to the south.

Rick Trotman, President and CEO of Barksdale commented, “The drill results continue to demonstrate that the Cerro Verde zone has significant shallow copper mineralization. The final results from the drilling program, which are primarily step-out holes to the west and south, are expected to be released within the next few weeks, at which point we can complete our resource estimation for Cerro Verde.”

Drill Hole Discussion

Holes SJ21-27, SJ21-28 and SJ21-29 were drilled on the same section (Figure 1) with the goal of providing infill definition between existing sections spaced ~100m apart. Hole SJ21-27 intersected 13.5m meters of 0.35% copper oxide mineralization between 45 to 58.5m, at which point the hole was abandoned after encountering a 4.5m void from 58.5 to 63m. Hole SJ21-28 intersected extensive enriched and primary copper mineralization immediately above and at the supergene / primary boundary. The main copper intercept contained 47m of 0.75% copper from 138 to 185m. Additionally, the upper portion of hole SJ21-28 intersected three narrow oxide gold intercepts (with little copper) which included 0.54 g/t gold from 21-24m, 0.58 g/t gold from 36-39m and 0.39 g/t gold from 45-48m. Hole SJ21-29 results include four oxide gold intercepts including: 15m of 0.73 g/t gold between 21-36m, 9m of 0.41 g/t gold from 39-48m, 9m of 0.84 g/t gold from 51-60m and 3m of 0.58 g/t from 66-69m. These gold intercepts represent the projected southern extension of gold encountered in SJ21-05 (see the press release dated October 25, 2021).

Hole SJ21-24 and SJ21-25 were drilled on the same section (Figure 2) with the goal of infilling a 125m gap in historic drill data (SJ21-24) as well as to extend copper mineralization to the east (SJ21-25) in an area where steep topography did not allow for road construction. SJ21-24 intersected 39m grading 0.61% copper from 21-60m comprised of multiple zones of both oxide and sulfide mineralization. SJ21-25 was drilling shallowly to the east and was successful in extending mineralization by approximately 40m. Intercepts included 27m of 0.26% oxide copper from 24-51m, 12m of oxide copper from 78-90m, 33m of 0.28% mixed oxide/sulfide copper from 138-171m and 12m of 0.52% primary copper from 183 to the end of the hole.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Drilling was completed using HQ size diamond drill core and core was logged by geologic consultants engaged by the Company. Drill holes were logged and marked for sampling prior to being sawn in half using a diamond blade saw, with one half of the sawn core being placed in a cloth sample bag, with a unique sample tag, while the second half was returned to the wooden core box for storage on site. Sample assays are being performed by Skyline Assayers & Laboratories, an accredited (ISO 9001) laboratory. Core samples are analyzed for total copper, acid soluble copper, cyanide soluble cooper, as well as well as a multi element ICP Analysis.

The analytical work has been and is subject to a QA/QC program that includes certified reference standards from OREAS North America. These standards are of similar composition to the rock types at San Javier. Several different standards are included in each batch of samples submitted to the lab. These controls are tracked to ensure the integrity of the assay data. Results are all within acceptable limits.
