Drill Hole J-3-20 intersected a near surface mineralized interval of 5.37 g/t gold (“Au”) over 5.0 metres (“m”), including 18.50 g/t Au over 1.0 m and 4.34 g/t Au over 0.7 m.
Drill Hole J-3-20 confirmed the extension of the interpreted mineralized zone between holes J-1-20 (angled north) and J-2-20 (angled northwest), see Figure 2.
Drill HoleJ-4-20, which was positioned 25 m to the southeast and angled between J-2-20 and J-3-20 to test the zone at depth, confirmed that the interpreted zone of mineralization remains open at depth.
Phase 1 of the 2020/21 Drill Program was focused on extending the previously identified mineralized area (Figure 1) in the vicinity of Miller Shaft above the level of the #3 Adit.
Table 1 – Significant Intercepts for Holes J-3-20 and J-4-20
1 – Reported intervals are down-hole lengths and not true thickness. True width of the mineralization cannot be determined due to the early-stage nature of the current program.
2 – Length-weighted average grades are calculated using un-capped gold assay data.
“The latest two drill holes from our 2020 drilling confirm that the previously identified mineralization extends at depth and along strike. Drill hole J-3-20 intersected strong gold mineralization, but most importantly shows that the mineralization extends to the east, stated President and CEO, James Macintosh. Drill hole J-4-20 intersected similar structures and veining in sulphides with a lower, but still very anomalous gold content, something not uncommon in Archean vein associated gold mineralized zones.”
The Company’s Technical Advisor and Qualified Person, Bruce Durham stated, “The intersection of strong gold mineralization again in this early phase of drilling is encouraging and even the mineralization and structure intersected in J-4-20 indicates there is strong deformation and that these gold bearing veins and shears continue at depth.”

The Company has samples from three (3) additional drill holes from phase 1 at the assay lab and expects additional results to be available in March.
