VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FRA:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) is pleased to report on the Phase 2 Exploration Program at its 100% owned Cabin Gold Project, NT, Canada. The focus of the Phase 2 Exploration Program was to discover and delineate new gold mineralized zones along the Bugow Iron Formation, the controlling structure for gold at the Cabin Gold Project. The Company is pleased to announce that its exploration program has been able to confirm and expand the historic gold grades at the Andrew South, Andrew Middle, and Andrew North Targets. The expansion includes an increase to the historical average gold grades reported across all of these historic targets. Rover has grouped the north, middle and south bounds of Andrew into a new single Andrew Zone, which extends 800 meters from south to north at surface. The map of the Bugow Iron Formation on the Company’s website has been updated to show the location of the new Andrew Zone. The south end of the Andrew Zone is situated roughly 500 meters northeast of the Beaver Zone. The Beaver Zone was featured in the Company’s December 7, 2021, release. The Company has now reported on the discovery of three medium-to-high grade mineralized gold zones at Cabin: the Arrow, Beaver, and Andrew Zones, all open at depth, and along strike.

Andrew Zone Expansion

Andrew South

The Company is reporting multiple near-surface medium-to-high grade gold at the newly defined Andrew Zone which extends 800 meters from south to north along the Bugow Iron Formation. Highlights of Phase 2 drilling at Andrew South include: new drill hole CL-21-21 which reported 2.9m of 5.09 g/t Au (from 70.65m to 76.8m), including 2.2m of 6.42 g/t Au and deeper in hole CL-21-21, reporting 4.7m of 3.38 g/t Au (from 88.80m to 94.00m). As of the date of this release, the Company has sent in additional samples for assaying from hole CL-21-21, as the gold mineralization is recognized to extend past the sulfide intervals of the drill core, which is a first for the project. The new assays, once received, will be part of a future updating release, and could extend the reported high-grade gold intervals at the southern part of Andrew. Additional highlights at Andrew include: new hole CL-21-24 which reported 3.9m of 2.91 g/t Au (from 51.00m to 55.12m); new hole CL-21-19 which reported 3.1m of 2.57 g/t Au (from 62.2m to 65.3m) and deeper in hole CL-21-19 reporting 1m of 2.06 g/t Au (from 93.3m to 94.3m); new hole CL-21-20 which reported 0.4m of 6.11 g/t Au (from 90.8m to 91.2m); and new hole CL-21-25 which reported 2.3m of 2.61 g/t Au (from 68.0m to 70.5m). As noted below, in the drill result tables, there are multiple well mineralized drill intercepts at the south part of the Andrew Zone that are reported in additional new holes (see CL-21-22, CL-21-22, CL-21-23 in the tables below). As of the date of this release, the Company has also sent additional samples from hole CL-21-25 to the lab for assaying.

Andrew North
Highlights from drilling at the northern part of the Andrew Zone include new hole CL-21-27 which reported 4.3m of 4.14 g/t Au (from 17.8m to 22.8m); new hole CL-21-29 which reported 3.0m of 3.2 g/t Au (from 37.6m to 40.8m) and multiple additional medium-to-high grade gold intercepts at deeper depth from this same hole, as reported in the drill result tables below. As of the date of this release, the Company has sent additional samples to the lab from hole CL-21-29. Additional highlights include new hole CL-21-28 which reported 3.2m of 1.19 g/t Au (from 38.8m to 42.8m).

The results, both confirm and expand upon, 1980s historical drilling at Andrew, and have returned higher grades than historical results. The historical drill holes and new holes from Andrew South and Andrew North can be referenced in the drill plan views below. A table of significant Andrew Zone drill assay results, greater than 0.5 g/t Au, listed by hole and interval, can be found near the end of this release. For purposes of the calculations of the highlighted intervals in this release, Rover considers results above 0.50 g/t Au to be of significance.

The Company’s working hypothesis is that the near surface Andrew Zone extends 800 meters, from south to north. There was significant drilling along the middle of the Andrew Zone in the 1940s. Unfortunately, none of the historical drill records have survived. The Company tested its hypothesis during its Phase 2 Exploration Program, by drilling two drill holes in the centre of the Andrew Zone. As of the date of this release, the Company has sent additional samples from both hole CL-21-30 and CL-21-31 to the lab for assaying as the gold mineralization is recognized to extend past the sulphide intervals in the drill core. The results from Andrew middle will form part of an updating release.

Judson Culter, CEO at Rover Metals, states “We are very pleased to have made the discovery of a third significant zone at the Cabin Gold project. In total, there is over 1,000 meters of surface strike length, that is open along strike (Beaver) and at depth (Arrow, Beaver and Andrew), across all defined zones on the project (Arrow, Beaver and Andrew). We expect the 2022 Phase 3 Exploration Program at the Cabin Gold project to focus on the highest grade gold areas of these zones.”

Provenance Gold Completes Strategic $800,000 Non-Brokered Private Placement Earmarked for Initial Gold Resource Calculation at Eldorado

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 13, 2022) – Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the “Company” or “Provenance“) is pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement for 5,000,000 units (each, a “Unit“) at a price of $0.16 per Unit for gross proceeds of $800,000. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Issuer (each, a “Share“) and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant“) with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share (each, a “Warrant Share“) of the Issuer at a price of $0.24 per Warrant Share until January 13, 2025.

Proceeds of this private placement are earmarked for the drilling and subsequent initial resource estimate on the Eldorado property in addition to advancing work on the Company’s Nevada properties, particularly the White Rock property as well as general working capital.

Provenance plans to generate resource estimates on both its White Rock property in Nevada and its Eldorado property in eastern Oregon during 2022, which will be detailed in technical reports prepared by the Company in accordance with National Instrument 43-101. The White Rock property will be a maiden resource calculation while the Eldorado property will begin to substantiate historical resource estimates.

As referenced in a previous news release, the Eldorado project hosts three different historical resource estimates done by reputable engineering firms based. The first was done by Billiton Minerals USA after 150 holes had been drilled. The second resource estimate was calculated by Ican Minerals after they completed an additional 49 drill holes in between the original 150. The final resource estimate which was inferred by Ican indicated an ore body approximately 762 meters wide (2500 feet) and 914 meters long (3000 feet). Provenance hopes to have a good portion of the historical resource qualified through data collection and drilling in 2022.

Ican Minerals4,000,000 Ounces Gold (Inferred)200,000,0000.76 g/t Gold (0.022 ounces per ton)

The Company anticipates the maiden resource estimate on its White Rock property over the next few months and is actively in the data collection and planning stage in anticipation of its upcoming drill program at Eldorado following the winter thaw and necessary permitting. This drill program, along with detailed historical data collection, compilation and modeling will be a key driver in producing a current and comprehensive resource estimate for the Eldorado property.

Provenance’s CEO, Rauno Perttu states, “with this funding, the Company is in an excellent position to advance its projects without diluting any more than is necessary at this time. With two cornerstone projects we believe we are in a very enviable position as a junior exploration company to potentially have two significant gold discoveries. We are fortunate to have experienced and influential funding partners that believe in the long-term outlook for the Company.”

No finders’ fees or commissions were paid in connection with completion of the private placement. All securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to restrictions on resale until May 14, 2022 in accordance with applicable securities laws.

Rauno Perttu, P. Geo., a Qualified Person (as defined by National Instrument 43-101), and the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this News Release.

The above-referenced resource estimates are considered historical in nature and as such are based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. A qualified person has not done sufficient work yet to classify the historical estimates as current resources in accordance with current CIM (Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum) categories and the company is not treating the historical estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, redrilling, resampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the historical estimates on the project 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 resource category.

TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce further high-grade intercepts of near surface gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 50,000 metre drill program. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

High grade gold continues to be found at Big Vein including intercepts of 50.52 g/t Au over 2m in hole K-21-76 from the HTC Footwall Zone. A deeper (200m to 201m) intercept of 15.86 g/t Au over 1 m from the same hole appears to be from a new zone. Approximately 135 metres along strike to the southwest, Hole K-21-74 intersected 2.86 g/t Au over 25m including 16.21g/t Au over 1m and 5.7g/t over 7m in a possible new zone in the immediate footwall to the Big Vein Zone. Testing further to the Southwest along Big Vein indicates consistent increased width of mineralization in the Big Vein zone as shown here by Hole K-21-75, that intersected 3.33 g/t Au over 4m within a larger intercept of 12m grading 1.62 g/t Au from 28m.

“Drilling at Big Vein continues to turn up high grade gold mineralization both down plunge and along strike. Two potential new zones are indicated by these results and grade 15.86 g/t Au over 1m in Hole K-21-76 and 16.21 g/t Au over 1m within a larger 29m interval in hole K-21-74 located 135m along strike to the southwest,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the Company. “We are very encouraged by the thickening of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest and look forward to results from many more holes drilled in this area. Drilling continues along strike to the southwest and down plunge at Big Vein. Drilling is also ongoing at the Pristine Target from which we are still awaiting the first assays.”

Big Vein target

The Big Vein target is an auriferous quartz vein exposed at surface that has been traced over 400 metres along the Appleton Fault Zone. It lies within a larger northeast-southwest trending “quartz vein corridor” that stretches for over 7.5 kilometres as currently outlined, with potential for expansion along the 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone in both directions. Gold mineralization observed at Big Vein includes visible gold in quartz veins, assays of samples from which range from 1.87g/t to 1,065g/t gold. The visible gold is typically hosted in annealed and vuggy gray quartz, that is locally stylolitic with vugs often containing euhedral quartz infilling features characteristic of epizonal gold deposits. Drilling has produced high grade intercepts as well as wide areas of gold mineralization associated with significant quartz veining and sulphide mineralization including arsenopyrite, pyrite and possible boulangerite noted along vein margins and as strong disseminations in the surrounding wall rocks.

The ongoing 50,000 metre drill program has now tested Big Vein over approximately 250 metres of strike length and to vertical depths of 200 metres. A total of 26,767 metres of the 50,000 metres have been completed in 116 holes primarily at Big Vein. Drilling at the new “Pristine” target began in November and nine holes totaling 2,229 metres have been drilled to date. Assays have been received for 59% of samples submitted to the laboratory or approximately 15,800 metres of core.

QA/QC

True widths of the reported intersections have yet to be calculated. Assays are uncut. Samples of HQ and NQ split core are securely stored prior to shipping to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples are routinely analyzed for gold by standard 30g fire assay with ICP (inductively coupled plasma) finish with samples containing visible gold assayed by metallic screen/fire assay. The company submits blanks and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

Qualified Person

Roger Moss, PhD., P.Geo., President and CEO of LabGold, a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101, has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this release.

The Company gratefully acknowledges the Newfoundland and Labrador Ministry of Natural Resources’ Junior Exploration Assistance (JEA) Program for its financial support for exploration of the Kingsway property.

About Labrador Gold
Labrador Gold is a Canadian based mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects in Eastern Canada.

In early 2020, Labrador Gold acquired the option to earn a 100% interest in the Kingsway project in the Gander area of Newfoundland. The three licenses comprising the Kingsway project cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including those of New Found Gold immediately to the south of Kingsway. Infrastructure in the area is excellent located just 18km from the town of Gander with road access to the project, nearby electricity and abundant local water. LabGold is drilling a projected 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $30 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretches over 60 km. The belt is typical of greenstone belts around the world but has been underexplored by comparison. Work to date by Labrador Gold show gold anomalies in rocks, soils and lake sediments over a 3 kilometre section of the northern portion of the Florence Lake greenstone belt in the vicinity of the known Thurber Dog gold showing where grab samples assayed up to 7.8g/t gold. In addition, anomalous gold in soil and lake sediment samples occur over approximately 40 km along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 40km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

The Company has 153,711,033 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Provides Pilot Plant Construction Update

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 5, 2022) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is very pleased to provide an update on the construction of its modular pilot plant in Arizona.

The plant is wholly-owned by SBMI and is intended upon completion to process up to 125 metric tonnes of material per day. It is of modular design capable of being expanded in size and modified as required. The plant is being constructed on SBMI-owned private property approximately 8 miles from Globe, Arizona and in proximity to its Buckeye Silver Mine. As per the flow chart below, the plant is state of the art.



Pilot Plant Flow Chart

“The leadership team at SBMI has a substantial equity position so we like all shareholders are thrilled to see the plant be built as designed,” said A. John Carter, the Company’s CEO. “Despite ongoing supply chain issues and exorbitant material and transportation cost increases, we remain on track to start commissioning in the first quarter of 2022. In anticipation of that commissioning, the Company has approximately 1000 tonnes of material already stockpiled for feed.”

The plant consists of a coarse ore feed bin, a fine ore bin, two stage crushing and screening, and a variable speed computer-controlled feed belt that leads to a grinding circuit. The grinding circuit is a ball mill in closed circuit with a bank of cyclones. The plan is for product from the ball mill to be pumped directly to a pair of Falcon concentrators. The product from the concentrators is then fed by gravity to a full size Diester concentrating table. Tailings from the Falcons and from the table are returned to the grinding circuit.

The cyclones then split the feed with the oversize material going back to the ball mill and the undersize material going to the tailings thickener. Processed material of the appropriate size is then sent to the bullion furnace where dore bars are poured. All tailings are dewatered and all available water is recycled.

The plant is designed to maximize the recovery of both gold and silver, although its modular nature means it can be adjusted to recover other metals.

Currently over 90% of the necessary equipment is onsite and being assembled (go to www.silverbulletmines.com to see pictures of the plant being built, or follow on Twitter @BulletMines). The remainder is in a container in Long Beach, California waiting to be off-loaded, on a timeline beyond the Company’s control. Some small items are to be purchased as required.

In addition to owning its own processing plant, SBMI owns an on-site assay facility which can provide assay results in less than a day. It also owns its own 2-boom jumbo, LHD (load-haul-dump), large Bobcat, and various other equipment. Owning all this equipment will allow the Company to process feed material quickly, efficiently and economically, as well as to generate revenue, without debt payments draining cash. The Company is in discussions with various groups concerning the purchase of both the dore and the concentrates.

Finally, SBMI announces it does not intend to spend capital on a third party resource estimate or Preliminary Economic Analysis for the Buckeye Silver Mine. In the Company’s opinion, given the nature of the known mineralization, the extensive historical third-party documentation, and the leadership team’s direct experience at Buckeye, a third party resource estimate or PEA would be prohibitively expensive to have written without actually advancing the Company’s knowledge of the Buckeye. “This is old school mining,” continued Mr. Carter, “and for this project it’s the right way. Producing from 6-foot wide silver veins is not your standard mining opportunity, which means it requires a non-standard approach. Here, we believe the right approach is to carry out our own internal economic analysis.”

The next major events at Buckeye will be the arrival on-site of the third container through the Long Beach supply chain, and the delivery of assay results from a third party accredited lab on one-quarter of the 150 pound bulk sample announced December 15, 2021. The Company has no direct control over the timing of either of those events but does continue to work with its suppliers to expedite them a much as possible.
