Goldshore Intersects Additional High-Grade Shears in the QES Zone at the Moss Lake Gold Project

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 28, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).

Highlights:

  • Results for seven holes, drilled to expand the coverage of the high-grade shears in the QES Zone, have confirmed higher-grade shear-hosted gold mineralization within a large volume of well mineralized diorites. These results are all within the $1500 Whittle pit that constrains the current resource and identifies new high-grade shears. Best intercepts include:
    • 1.51 g/t Au over 6.0m from 502.0m depth in MQD-22-075 and
    • 1.47 g/t Au over 30.1m from 530.0m
    • 8.45 g/t Au over 5.0m from 576m depth in MQD-22-076 including
      • 36.9 g/t Au over 1.0m from 577m
    • 1.87 g/t Au over 6.75m from 602.25m
    • 1.31 g/t Au over 14.15m from 544.0m depth in MQD-22-080
    • 2.07 g/t Au over 6.0m from 422.0m depth in MQD-22-085 and
    • 1.07 g/t Au over 15.0m from 457.0m
    • 1.26 g/t Au over 7.15m from 573.85m
    • 1.07 g/t Au over 24.7m from 369.0m depth in MQD-22-087 and
    • 2.15 g/t Au over 5.0m from 489.0m
    • 1.75 g/t Au over 8.05m from 513.95m
    • 2.11 g/t Au over 30.75m from 536.9m including
      • 11.5 g/t Au over 3.1m from 555.2m
    • 1.31 g/t Au over 63.6m from 427.0m depth in MQD-22-090A
      • 2.07 g/t Au over 32.0m from 439.0m
  • new parallel mineralized shear structure has been discovered 150m south of the main QES system containing high grade mineralization within a sheared intermediate volcanic package with best intercepts of:
    • 3.44 g/t Au over 5.8m from 246.4m depth in MQD-22-080
    • 1.22 g/t Au over 4.0m from 206.0m depth in MQD-22-087
    • 1.15 g/t Au over 7.3m from 75.0m depth in MQD-22-090A

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “The results from these drill holes in the QES Zone are part of a 52-hole data set that was not included in the recent mineral resource estimate. They confirm our belief that there are additional high-grade shear zones within the deposit that will potentially add to the shear domain component of the mineral resource that we anticipate will be prioritized in the mining schedule when we move towards conducting a preliminary economic analysis next year.”

Technical Overview

Figure 1 shows the better intercepts in plain view and Figure 2 is a typical section through hole MQD-22-087. Table 1 shows the significant intercepts. Table 2 shows the drill hole locations.

Results have been received for six holes that have infilled areas of the QES Zone that are between sections drilled by historic holes with collar survey problems. As a result, they will replace the low-confidence historic holes in the upcoming resource model update.

A seventh hole was drilled to the southeast of the QES Zone to investigate two historical showing along a parallel structure of the QES Zone but did not intersect significant mineralization.

As with the historic holes, these holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 0.77 g/t Au over 83m from 493m depth in MQD-22-075; 0.41 g/t Au over 32.45m from 437.55m and 0.71 g/t Au over 131.1m from 493m in MQD-22-076; 0.54 g/t Au over 102m from 476m and 0.39 g/t Au over 27.95m from 643m in MQD-22-080; 0.78 g/t Au over 70m from 419m and 0.50 g/t Au over 28.75m from 521.25m in MQD-22-085; 0.50 g/t Au over 115.9m from 408.1m in MQD-22-087; and 0.48 g/t Au over 27.45m from 552.05m in MQD-22-090A.

All these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures that form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 1.31 g/t Au over 63.6m from 427m depth in MQD-22-090A) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 10.1 g/t Au over 0.7m from 545.8m and 36.9 g/t Au over 1m from 577m in MQD-22-076; 10.0 g/t Au over 1m from 427m in MQD-22-085; 20.6 g/t Au over 0.9m from 370.65m, 28.3 g/t Au over 0.3m from 540.3m and 11.5 g/t Au over 3.1m from 555.2m in MQD-22-087; and 19.4 g/t Au over 1.15m from 455.85m in MQD-22-090A.

An additional parallel shear was discovered within the intermediate volcanic package approximately 150m south of the main QES system which contains broad intercepts of low-grade mineralization including 0.91 g/t over 24.8m from 246.4m in MQD-22-080; 0.33 g/t over 45.7m from 150.0m in MQD-22-085; 0.42 g/t over 39.0m from 189.0m in MQD-22-087 containing internal higher grade intercepts including 3.44 g/t Au over 5.8m from 246.4m depth in MQD-22-080; 1.22 g/t Au over 4.0m from 206.0m depth in MQD-22-087; 1.15 g/t Au over 7.3m from 75.0m depth in MQD-22-090A.

Importantly, these intercepts have identified additional high-grade shears not modelled in the recent Mineral Resource.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “These drill results confirm high-grade shears that we have modelled at the QES Zone and confirmed additional shears that we expect to include in the next mineral resource update early next year.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23”) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61”). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21”).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC”) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit (Table 3), the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 4), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 5), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length.

The Moss Lake Deposit hosts an estimated inferred mineral resource of 4.17 Moz Au (see Goldshore’s news release dated November 15, 2022). A technical report is being prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101“) and will be available on the Company’s website and SEDAR within 45 days of November 15, 2022.

A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

Notes:
(2) Source: McCracken, T. “Technical Report and Resource Estimate on the Osmani Gold Deposit, Coldstream Property, Northwestern Ontario”, prepared for Foundation Resources Inc. and Alto Ventures Ltd. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on a 0.4 g/t Au cut-off grade. The qualified persons for the East Coldstream Historical Estimate are Todd McCracken, P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and Jeff Wilson, Ph.D., P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and the effective date of the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is December 12, 2011. Resources are presented unconstrained, undiluted and in situ. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate includes 2 gold-bearing zones. A cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au was selected as the official resource cut-off grade. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on 116 diamond drill holes drilled from 1986 to 2011. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. Capping was established at 5.89 g/t Au and 5.70 g/t Au for domains EC-1 and EC-2, respectively. This is supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Datamine Studio 3 version 3.20.5321.0. Resource categorization is based on spatial continuity based from the variography of the assays within the drillholes. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat it, or any part of it, as current mineral resources or reserves. The Company has determined this historical resource is reliable, and relevant to be included here in that it demonstrates simply the mineral potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the East Coldstream Historical Estimate as a current resource and Goldshore is not treating the East Coldstream Historical Estimate as a current resource. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the East Coldstream Historical Estimate can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate relating to inferred mineral resources was calculated using prior mining industry standard definitions and practices for estimating mineral resource and mineral reserves. Such prior definitions and practices were utilized prior to the implementation of the current standards of the Canadian Institute of Mining for mineral resource estimation, and have a lower level of confidence.

Bravo’s Re-sampling Program Continues to Outperform Historic Grades at Luanga

VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 28, 2022 /CNW/ – Bravo Mining Corp. (TSXV: BRVO) (OTCQX: BRVMF) (“Bravo” or the “Company“) today announced that it has received assay results from the analysis of re-sampled historic drill core from an additional eight historical diamond drill holes (“DDH”) from its Luanga (palladium + platinum + rhodium + gold +nickel) project (“Luanga” or “Luanga PGM+Au+Ni“), located in the Carajás Mineral Province, state of Pará, Brazil.

“Assay results have been received from a total of 42 re-sampled historic drill holes to date, with the previously noted positive trend of higher PGM+Au grades continuing to be observed in most intercepts as compared to historical intercepts,” said Luis Azevedo, Chairman and CEO of Bravo. “It is also encouraging that nickel sulphide grades are very comparable to the historical total nickel results, suggesting that very little nickel is tied up in silicates in the fresh rock. All these observations, combined with the first-time assaying for rhodium in many intercepts, are supportive as we work to validate Luanga’s historical mineral resource estimate of 142Mt @ 1.24 g/t Pd+Pt+Au and 0.11% Ni” (see Page 5 of this news release for important information in respect of the Historical Estimate).

Highlights

  • Results from the ongoing re-sampling of historic drill core continue to show a tendency to exceed the tenor of historic intercept grades, with mineralized thicknesses directly comparable to the thicknesses reported for historic intercepts.
  • Highlights of Bravo’s most recent re-sampling results are tabulated below, with details including comparisons to historic intercepts:

  • 119 drill holes (including 8 metallurgical drill holes) have been completed so far in 2022, for a total of 20,409 metres (or 80% of the Phase 1 Drill Program). Currently, samples from 46 drill holes are at the assay laboratory pending results, and results from 34 drill holes have been released to date.
  • 22,318 samples have been submitted for assay in 2022, including 3,353 samples from re-sampling of historic drill core.
  • 6 drill rigs operating onsite.

Luanga Re-Sampling Program and Phase 1 Drilling Progress

A comparison of the historic intercepts with the Bravo assay results from re-sampled core is tabulated below, with a plan showing the re-sampled hole locations. A drill section is provided below, showing results for PPT-LUAN-112. Bravo’s assay results from re-sampled core continue to closely correlate to the historic intercepts in thicknesses, while the previously observed trend of intercepts frequently exceeding the tenor of historic grades continues. This is most likely related to improved assay methods for PGMs versus those available over 20 years ago, and only sporadic rhodium assaying historically.

The Phase 1 diamond drill program continues as planned at Luanga. Six drill rigs are on site, with drilling progressing in various locations along the entire 8.1km strike length of the known Luanga mineralized envelope. To date, 114 drill holes have been completed, for a total of 19,384 metres (or 76%) of the planned 25,500 metre Phase 1 drill program.

About Bravo Mining Corp.

Bravo is a Canada and Brazil-based mineral exploration and development company focused on advancing its Luanga PGM + Au + Ni Project in the world-class Carajás Mineral Province of Brazil.

The Luanga Project benefits from being in a location close to operating mines, with excellent access and proximity to existing infrastructure, including road, rail and clean and renewable hydro grid power. The project area was previously de-forested for agricultural grazing land. Bravo’s current Environmental, Social and Governance activities includes replanting trees in the project area, hiring and contracting locally, engagement with local communities, and ensuring protection of the environment during its exploration activities.

Technical Disclosure

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Simon Mottram, F.AusIMM (Fellow Australia Institute of Mining and Metallurgy), President of Bravo Mining Corp. who serves as the Company’s “qualified person”, as defined in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101“). Mr. Mottram has verified the technical data and opinions contained in this news release.

Historical Resource Estimate

This press release includes a historical resource estimate for the Luanga Project (the “Historical Estimate“) prepared internally by prior owners, VALE SA, in 2017 and contained in a report by  Mansur E.T., Ferreira Filho C.F., Oliveira D.P.L. entitled “The Luanga deposit, Carajás Mineral Province, Brazil: Different styles of PGE mineralization hosted in a medium-size layered intrusion.” and published in Ore Geology Reviews (Volume 118, March 2020, 103340). A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves under National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and Bravo is not treating the Historical Estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Bravo cautions that the Historical Estimate was not prepared in accordance with NI 43-101. There can be no certainty, following further evaluation and/or exploration work, that the Historical Estimate can be upgraded or verified as mineral resources or mineral reserves in accordance with NI 43-101. Further, the assays values used to calculate the nickel content in the Historical Estimate are total nickel, and thus contain both sulphide nickel (potentially recoverable) and silicate nickel (unrecoverable by conventional methods). Bravo is not aware whether the nickel content in the Historical Estimate has been modified to account for this or not. In addition, no breakdown of the assay results for the individual metals contributing to this Historical Estimate has been published and the Historical Estimate was not classified in accordance with the mineral resource categories set out in NI 43-101. Nevertheless, Bravo considers the Historical Estimate to be relevant to the reader’s understanding of the status of the Project and its future potential.

Schedule 2: Assay Methodologies and QAQC

Samples followed chain of custody between collection, processing and delivery to the ALS laboratory in Parauapebas, state of Pará, Brazil. The drill core was delivered to the core shack at Bravo’s Luanga site facilities and processed by geologists who inserted certified reference materials, blanks and duplicates into the sampling sequence. Drill core was quarter cut and placed in secured polyurethane bags, then in security-sealed sacks before being delivered directly from the Luanga site facilities to the Parauapebas ALS laboratory by Bravo staff. Additional information about the methodology can be found on the respective ALS or SGS global websites (ALSSGS) in their analytical guides. Information regarding preparation and analysis of historic drill core is also presented in the table below, where the information is known.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (“QAQC“) is maintained internally at the lab through rigorous use of internal certified reference materials, blanks, and duplicates. An additional QAQC program is administered by Bravo using certified reference materials, duplicate samples and blank samples that are blindly inserted into the sample batch. If a QAQC sample returns an unacceptable value an investigation into the results is triggered and when deemed necessary, the samples that were tested in the batch with the failed QAQC sample are re-tested.

StrikePoint Discovers Two New Zones of Surface Mineralization with Results Up to 156 g/t Gold and 91.7 g/t Silver and Extends North Zone with Results up to 53.9 g/t Gold and 1,240 g/t Silver at Willoughby

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 28, 2022) – StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the drilling results as well as reconnaissance grab sample results from the 2022 exploration program at the 100%-owned Willoughby gold-silver project, located east of the community of Stewart in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. The 2022 program was focussed on regional exploration aimed at growing the footprint of the Willoughby mineralization trend and to drill previously untested areas on the Project

Highlights of the 2022 field program at Willoughby Include:

  • Newly discovered “BOD Zone” 125m to the South of the Icefall zone on the Willoughby nunataq, with best grab sample returning 156 g/t Au and 91.7 g/t Ag
  • New discovered “FS Zone” 700m to the south of the Willoughby nunataq with best grab sample returning 6.48 g/t Au and 52.5 g/t Ag
  • Extension of the main Willoughby showing along NNW structures with samples returning up to 53.9 g/t Au and 1,240 g/t Ag
  • Drillhole W22-129 at the north end of the main Willoughby nunataq intersected 2.48 g/t Au and 4.00 g/t Ag over 4.20 metres including 11.45 g/t Au and 13.70 g/t Ag over 0.85 metres
  • Drillhole W22-125, at the south end of the Willoughby nunataq intersected 1.02 g/t Au and 27.15 g/t Ag over 5.32 metres in a new zone of mineralization and alteration lying to the west of known mineralized zones.

StrikePoint’s CEO, Michael G. Allen, states, “The 2022 program at Willoughby significantly expanded the known mineralized footprint on the property. Significant gold and silver grades have been established through surface sampling and drilling for approximately 2,700 meters of strike length of the Willoughby trend. Additionally, drillholes W22-125 and W22-129 identified potential new zones of mineralization west of previous drilling at either end of the Willoughby nunataq, that has only been cut by these two drillholes to date.”

2022 Willoughby Surface Sampling

At total of 84 surface grab samples were collected as part of the 2022 Willoughby property exploration program. Values returned ranged from 0.005 to 156.0 g/t Au and 0.25 to 1,240.0 g/t Ag with 27 samples returning gold values of greater than 0.1 g/t. The program targeted areas of newly exposed outcrop to the south and north of the Main Willoughby showing along the initial 1,300m long mineralized trend. Exploration surface sampling highlighted two new mineralized zones, FS and BOD zones to the south, as well as confirming mineralization at the historic Back Ridge zone, a previously underexplored area. This work extended the Willoughby mineralized trend to a total of 2,700 metres.

Figure 1. Willoughby property surface grab sample locations

The BOD Zone is located at the southern most end of the Willoughby nunataq, 125 metres South of the Icefall zone. Surface reconnaissance outlined a wide area of quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration at BOD that is linked to alteration associated with of north-northwest striking structures further north on the nunataq. These steeply east dipping structures are linked to bonanza grade mineralization as shown in grab sample B0017097 grading 156 g/t Au and 91.7 g/t Ag. In addition, alteration halos around these structures returned significant grades in three surface samples which average 4.02 g/t Au and 11.9 g/t Ag.

Further to the north on the Willoughby nunataq, infill sampling was completed along the southerly projection of the North Fault, confirming a 125-metre extension the north-northwest trending structure. Sample B0017066 returned 53.9 g/t Au and 1,240 g/t Ag in a fault breccia with semi massive sulphide cement, dominantly pyrite with patchy to disseminated galena.

The newly defined FS zone located at the southernmost extent of the property, approximately 700 meters to the south of the BOD zone. This area has been recently exposed due to significant ice recession. This new zone exhibits similar mineralization style to those outlined on the Willoughby nunataq, suggesting a continuation of known mineralization. Significant grades were returned from the few grab samples collected: B0017075 1.39 g/t Au and 128 g/t Ag, B0017076 3.05 g/t Au and 36.2 g/t Ag, B0017080 4.95 g/t Au and 120 g/t Ag, and B0017081 6.48 g/t Au and 52.5 g/t Ag.

The Company considers these to be very encouraging results, strengthening and extending the mineralization trend.

Willoughby Drilling

A total of 1,500 meters of diamond drilling was completed during the 2022 Willoughby exploration program with a focus on northern and southern extensions of mineralized zones on the Willoughby nunataq and exploratory drilling to discover new mineralization to the west of the Willoughby Trend.

The program was successful in defining new mineralization to southwest of the North zone in hole W22-129 which returned 2.48 g/t Au and 4.00 g/t Ag over 4.20 metres including 11.45 g/t Au and 13.70 g/t Ag over 0.85 metres. The mineralization outlined in this hole is at the contact between the Jurassic volcanic rock package and the Goldslide intrusive in an area strongly quartz-sericite altered with massive pyrite mineralized sections and is similar to what is seen at the Edge, Wilby, and Icefall zones. From the same drill set-up, hole W22-128 intersected 1.11 g/t Au and 20.96 g/t Ag over 9.02 metres including 2.46 g/t Au and 35.23 g/t Ag over 2.52 metres exploring extension of the mineralization to the northwest, notably towards the NN zone. Mineralized intersections consist of massive pyrite veins in a chlorite altered intrusive which is interpreted to be with the footwall alteration of the dominant structures bearing mineralization.

The remaining the three exploration holes were drilled further to the south on the Willoughby nunataq in wide areas that were previously untested. Hole W22-125 was an exploratory hole to the southwest that intersected 1.02 g/t Au and 27.15 g/t Ag over 5.32 metres in strongly altered silica-sericite lapilli tuff with semi-massive pyrite and sphalerite in an unexplored area. Hole W22-127 was an aggressive 100m step out from known mineralization at the Wilby zone, it intersected 0.82 g/t Au and 1.41 g/t Ag over 8.78 metres and 8.39 g/t Au and 11.20 g/t Ag over 1.12 metres.

Willoughby Project

The project occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-stage Red Mountain Deposit owned by Ascot Resources. Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcano-sedimentary rocks underlay the property, subsequently intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at the nearby Red Mountain deposit. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primary pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, and native gold. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to date over a two-kilometre strike-length mineralized trend.

QA/QC

Samples for the 2022 drilling exploration program were all NQ-sized (47.6 mm diameter) drill core was labeled, sawn in half, with one-half placed in sealed bags, and shipped with a chain of custody controls to the laboratory. The remaining drill core is securely stored in Stewart, BC. The surface samples for the 2022 exploration program were labelled and shipped to the laboratory using industry standard chain of custody controls. The company implements a rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program, including the insertion of standards, blanks, and duplicates at regular intervals in the sample stream to monitor laboratory performance.

All samples were submitted to the ALS Chemex and underwent preparation at either their Terrace and Langley facilities in British Columbia with all analytical work carried out at their North Vancouver, BC laboratory. The ALS facility is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for gold assays, and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria. The entire sample is crushed, split into representative sub-samples using a riffle splitter, and subsequently, 250g is pulverized. Analysis for gold is by 30g fire assay fusion with atomic absorption (AAS) finish with a lower limit of 0.005 ppm and an upper limit of 10 ppm. Samples with gold assays greater than 10ppm are re-analyzed using a 30g fire assay fusion with a gravimetric finish. Analysis for silver is by 30g fire assay fusion with gravimetric finish with a lower limit of 2ppm and upper limit of 100ppm. Samples with silver assays higher than 100ppm are re-analyzed using a gravimetric silver concentrate method. All samples are also analyzed using a 33 multi-elemental geochemical package by 4-acid digestion (ICP-AES).

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from recent drilling targeting the prospective Appleton Fault Zone over a 12km strike length. The drilling is part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre diamond drilling program at its 100% owned Kingsway Project.

Highlights of the drilling include an intersection of 8.60g/t Au over 4.41 metres from 326.89 metres that included 53.52g/t Au over 0.31 metres in Hole K-22-211 that contains visible gold, and 1.31g/t Au over 7 metres from 270 metres including 8.49g/t Au over 0.91 metres in Hole K-22-207 from Big Vein Southwest. Hole K-22-202, drilled at the northeast end of Big Vein, intersected 5.68g/t Au over 2.65 metres from 189.7 metres that included 18.27g/t Au over 0.78 metres.

Hole K-22-211 was collared 40 metres southwest of Hole K-22-174 that intersected 284.1 g/t Au over 0.58 metres and 15.05g/t Au over 1.11 metres (see News Release dated July 7, 2022) and extends the mineralized zone further to the Southwest.

“We continue to have drilling success at both ends of Big Vein which has now been drilled over a strike length of approximately 520 metres and remains open in both directions. In particular, the high grade zone containing visible gold at Big Vein Southwest continues to expand,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO. “Two drill rigs continue drilling at Big Vein to test for extensions of the mineralization in both directions. Drilling will continue through the winter.”

Platinum Fundamentals Starting to Shift as Supply Deficit Forecasted for 2023 – WPIC

(Kitco News) – Although the platinum market has seen a significant surplus in 2022, the market is expected to get a lot tighter next year, with the World Platinum Investment Council forecasting a sizable deficit.

Tuesday, the WPIC released its platinum Quarter report, which looked a platinum demand for the third quarter and provided initial estimates for 2023.

The analysts revised the expected surplus for this year to 804,000 ounces, a decline of about 17% from its second-quarter projections. However, the biggest highlight of the report is an expected 1.1 million-ounce swing in the supply of the precious metal.

“It’s a significant change in direction,” Edward Sterck, director of research at the council, said in an interview with Kitco News.

The analysts said that they expect platinum to see a supply deficit of 303,000 ounces in 2023 as global demand rises above 7.7 million ounces and supply remains reasonably stable, growing by only 2%.

While the platinum supplies have been volatile in the last few years, Sterck said there is a strong chance the market will see tighter conditions moving forward. He added that demand continues to grow while supply struggles to keep up.

“I don’t think we are going to see the supply response to growing demand,” he said. “Producers might want to respond to the supply and demand imbalance, but I don’t think they will be in a position to do so anytime soon.

There are already signs of producers struggling to keep up as the WPIC said that supply is expected to decline 10% this year to 5.63 million ounces, lower than levels seen pre-pandemic.

At the same time, industrial demand, led by the automotive sector, continues to grow. The report said platinum usage in the auto sector increased by 143,000 ounces in the third quarter, jumping 25% from last year. Sterck said that the auto sector continues to struggle with supply chain issues and production is below traditional recessionary levels.

Sterck added that if the microchip shortage continues to improve, demand for new cars will continue to grow, even in the midst of a recession. For 2023, the WPC expects the auto sector to consume 324,000 ounces of platinum, an 11% increase from this year.

Total industrial demand is expected to rise by 10,000 ounces this year, a 2% increase from last year. The WPIC sees a 10% increase in demand next year.

“Driven by anticipated growth in capacity expansions and ongoing strong demand in China, as well as fibreglass plant projects in Egypt, glass demand is expected to jump by 52% to 481 koz,” the report said.


Turkey, Uzbekistan continue to buy gold, speculation grows that China is buying anonymously

Looking at investment demand, the WPIC said they expect to see a sharp turnaround in 2023. The report noted that liquidation in platinum-backed exchange-traded funds caused 235,000 ounces to flow out of the market. For the year, analysts forecast investment demand to decline by 525,000 ounces this year.

However, looking ahead, the WPIC sees bar and coin demand growing 49% next year, driven by Japanese investors. Physical demand is expected to rise to a three-year high in 2023.

“Outflows from exchange warehouses (-20 Koz) and liquidations of ETF holdings (-275 kHz) are expected to slow, resulting in net investment of 212 koz in 2023,” the analysts said in the report.
