VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 22, 2022 / FALCON GOLD CORP. (TSXV:FG)(GR:3FA)(OTCQB:FGLDF); (“Falcon” or the “Company”) is pleased to report a Phase III drill program on the Central Canada Gold Project in the Atikokan mining camp of northwestern Ontario is scheduled for March 2022. To date Falcon has completed 26 diamond drill holes totaling 4,058m since 2020. Phase III is planned for 3 holes totaling approximately 1,000m. Drilling will target the J.J Walshe Zone (Central Canada Mine Trend) (Figure 1) at vertical depths between 200 and 300 m to extend the gold bearing zones beyond the current drilled depth of 160m.

Highlights from the previous programs at the J.J. Walshe Zone include 1.35 g/t Au over 4.1m starting at 59.5m downhole in CC20-15 and 1.57 g/t Au over 14.8m starting at 89.6m downhole in CC20-12. This interval contained visible gold which assayed 20.50 g/t Au over 0.3m. Hole CC20-12 also contained 10.8 g/t Au over 0.3m starting at 112.4m downhole. The Central Canada Mine Trend has now been traced for 275m in strike length and to a depth of 160m.

Mr. Karim Rayani, Falcon’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are excited to finally test the historic Central Canada Mine Zone to a new target depth between 300-400m, not previously done by past operators. Falcon has been successful in intersecting 4 parallel zones along the CCMT and we are looking forward to testing these zones at greater depth below the old workings. Broad mineralization containing high grade domains have been intersected at the CCMT from Falcon’s past drilling campaigns.”
