Arthurs Seat Project

The Arthurs Seat Project, comprised of Exploration License 9144 (“EL 9144”), is approximately 42 km² in area and is located in the northwestern region of the New England Orogen. The New England Orogen comprises island-arc and continental-arc gold-silver mineralized belts, which host extensive intrusion related polymetallic deposits. In the Southern New England Orogen, where Roo Golds projects are based, include the historic Conrad Silver Mine which produced approximately 3.5Moz Ag1, Webbs Silver deposit that contains JORC (2012) Mineral Resource Estimate Indicated and Inferred of 2.2Mt at 205 g/t Ag2 and the Hillgrove Au-Sb-W Mine with historic production of 720koz Au3.

The Arthurs Seat project is centered on the regional Severn Thrust Fault and mineralized granitic/sandstone contact. The property includes 3 historical silver, tungsten and antimony mines and prospects. Mineralization is found in white quartz and tourmaline veins cutting the greisen altered granite – meta- sedimentary contact zone. This contact spans over 15 km strike length within the concession, historically mined for silver and tin ore. The contact target and associated mines remain unexplored in the subsurface since mining ended in 1890.

Elevated gold grades observed at the Cox gold/silver prospect are interpreted as related with the hanging wall of the deep-seated Severn Thrust Fault – potentially representing a robust 7 km long underexplored secondary target (Figure 1 and Figure 2).

The Murray and Co Mine is located on the western boundary of EL 9144 and was mined in the late 1890’s including the development of underground adits and shafts driven into silver and tin rich quartz and tourmaline veins, which intrude metasediments along the greisen altered granite contact, (Figure 3). Historical sampling of mullock heaps at the prospect returned grades of 1,085 g/t Ag and 1,400 ppm Sb (source: Magnum Exploration NL, GS1971/217).

Rock Chip Sampling Program

Two field trips were undertaken with a total of 274 rock chip samples collected at the Arthurs Seat Project (EL 9144) to confirm the results of historical sampling. Initial sampling focused on the Arthurs Seat historical prospect that is defined by the contact between the Permian Graman Monzogranite of the S-type Bundarra Supersuite and the metasediments of the Carboniferous Texas Beds of the Central Block.

Of the 159 rock chip samples, 154 samples returned anomalous silver showing low-level, widespread silver mineralisation across the sampling area ranging from 0.01 ppm Ag to 4.0 ppm Ag, see Figure 1 and Figure 2. The highest grade results were concentrated in the greisen altered granite hosting quartz veins at Arthurs Seat. The highest assay result received was 3.99 ppm Ag, 8,210 ppm As, 4.93 ppm Sb. 3.80 ppm W and 223 ppm Bi (Sample Number R00148) from a greisen altered granite with iron-oxide filled vugs after sulfides. The highest gold result returned was 0.11 ppm Au, 5.03% As, 165 ppm Bi, 2.36 ppm Ag from a highly sheared mafic rock (Sample Number R00147).

The location of the rock chip samples and current assay results are indicated below in Figures 1 and 2.

The Murray and Co mine was mapped as a subvertical, E-W trending zone of silicified ferruginous metasediments in contact with silica flooded quartz veins in greisenised granite. A 1 m zone of fine, brecciated, smokey, and gossanous quartz veins carrying stibnite, arsenopyrite, and pyrite was observed. Significant silica, sericite, and chlorite alteration of metasedimentary host rocks confirm the presence of a hydrothermal mineralizing system, Figure 4. Multiple generations of quartz veins were observed with primary, coarse bucky quartz, and secondary fine, smokey quartz veins carrying stibnite, arsenopyrite, and pyrite mineralisation.

The McDonalds North prospect was mapped as an E-W trending zone of fine (1-3 mm) gossanous and stibnite-silver bearing quartz veins within a highly silicified metasediment host rock, Figure 5. Sub-horizontal bedding contained minor sulfides along the bedding plane. McDonalds South prospect is faulted and juxtaposed against a quartz-eye porphyry dyke containing arsenopyrite and pyrite intruded into strongly silica flooded metasediments. A number of E-W sinistral faults were mapped and represent possible conduits for the deposition of mineralizing fluids, Figure 6.

The remaining 115 samples collected at Murrays and Co Mine and McDonalds prospects have assay results pending from the laboratory.

Why Progressives Love Government “Experts”

Orginal Source: https://mises.org/wire/why-progressives-love-government-experts

06/09/2022 Ryan McMaken

In twenty-first-century America, ordinary people are at the mercy of well-paid, unelected government experts who wield vast power. That is, we live in the age of the technocrats: people who claim to have special wisdom that entitles them to control, manipulate, and manage society’s institutions using the coercive power of the state. 

We’re told these people are “nonpolitical” and will use their impressive scientific knowledge to plan the economy, public health, public safety, or whatever goal the regime has decided the technocrats will be tasked with bringing about. 

These people include central bankers, Supreme Court justices, “public health” bureaucrats, and Pentagon generals. The narrative is that these people are not there to represent the public or bow to political pressure. They’re just there to do “the right thing” as dictated by economic theory, biological sciences, legal theory, or the study of military tactics. 

We’re also told that in order to allow these people to act as the purely well-meaning apolitical geniuses they are, we must give them their independence and not question their methods or conclusions.

We were exposed to this routine yet again last week as President Joe Biden announced he will “respect the Fed’s independence” and allow the central bankers to set monetary policy without any bothersome interference from the representatives of the taxpayers who pay all the bills and who primarily pay the price when central bankers make things worse. (Biden, of course, didn’t mention that central bankers have been spectacularly wrong about the inflation threat in recent years, with inflation rates hitting forty-year highs, economic growth going negative, and consumer credit piling up as families struggle to cope with the cost of living.)

Conveniently, Biden’s deferral to the Fed allows him to blame it later when economic conditions get even worse. Nonetheless, his placing the economy in the hands of alleged experts will no doubt appear laudable to many. This is because the public has long been taught by public schools and media outlets that government experts should have the leeway to exercise vast power in the name of “fixing” whatever problems society faces. 

The Expert Class as a Tool for State Building

The success of this idea represents a great victory for progressive ideology. Progressives have long been committed to creating a special expert class as a means of building state power. In the United States, for example, the cult of expertise really began to take hold in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and it led directly to support for more government intervention in the private sector. As Maureen Flanagan notes in “Progressives and Progressivism in an Era of Reform,” 

Social science expertise gave political Progressives a theoretical foundation for cautious proposals to create a more activist state…. Professional social scientists composed a tight circle of men who created a space between academia and government from which to advocate for reform. They addressed each other, trained their students to follow their ideas, and rarely spoke to the larger public.

These men founded new organizations—such as the American Economics Association—to promote this new class of experts and their plans for a more centrally planned society. Ultimately, the nature of the expert class was revolutionary. The new social scientists thought they knew better than the patricians, religious leaders, local representatives, and market actors who had long shaped local institutions. Instead

Progressives were modernizers with a structural-instrumentalist agenda. They rejected reliance on older values and cultural norms to order society and sought to create a modern reordered society with political and economic institutions run by men qualified to apply fiscal expertise, businesslike efficiency, and modern scientific expertise to solve problems and save democracy. The emerging academic disciplines in the social sciences of economics, political economy and political science, and pragmatic education supplied the theoretical bases for this middle-class expert Progressivism.

The Progressive impulse for expertise-based rule was perhaps exemplified by the Progressive transportation planner Emory Johnson, who advocated for a strong federal executive branch that would be resistant to political pressure while relying on the supposedly “scientific” judgments of government planners and other bureaucrats. Johnson

explicitly took up the question of the role of expertise in the American state…. he maintained that success relied upon what he termed “executive functions.” He sought to empower the federal government’s executive branch as experts’ natural home.1

In the Progressive view, business leaders and machine politicians lacked a rational and broad view of the needs of society. In contrast, the government experts would approach society’s problems as scientists. Johnson felt this model already somewhat existed in the Department of War, where Johnson imagined the secretary of war was “quite free from political pressure and [relied] on the counsel of the engineers.” Johnson imagined that these science-minded bureaucrats could bring a “really economic and scientific application” of policy.2 

“Disinterested” Central Planners

Johnson was part of a wave of experts and intellectuals attempting to develop “a new realm of state expertise” that favored apolitical technocrats who would plan the nation’s infrastructure and industry.2 Many historians have recognized that these efforts were fundamentally state-building activities … [and that] their emergence marked and symbolized a watershed in which an often-undemocratic new politics of administration and interest groups displaced the nineteenth century’s partisan, locally oriented public life” (emphasis added).3

In short, these efforts sowed the seeds for the idealized technocracy we have today: unresponsive to the public and imbued with vast coercive power that continually displaces private discretion and private prerogatives. 

Indeed, the Progressive devotion to expertise followed “the core pattern of Progressive politics,” which is “the redirection of decision making upward within bureaucracies.”4 Thus, in contrast to the populist political institutions of an earlier time, decision-making in the Progressive Era became more white-collar, more middle class—as opposed to the working-class party workers—and more hierarchical within bureaucracies directly controlled by the state’s executive agencies.

Although Progressives thought of themselves as the saviors of democracy, they nonetheless recognized the conflict between their professed democratic ideals and a reliance on experts: 

[Progressives] reconciled the conflict between using hierarchical bureaucracy to seek efficiency and dispersing power to achieve equality by depicting bureaucratic systems as safeguards of public order…. Since authority flowed from supposedly disinterested facts and “scientific” expertise, bureaucratic systems were presented by their champions as objective, coherent, and essentially democratic structures.5

This idealized notion of the “disinterested expert” formed a key component of the Progressive agenda:

Progressive reformers proposed an antidote to the corruption of patronage politics, emphasizing disinterested experts and rationalized administration: a city council would appoint an executive officer, the city manager, who would in turn appoint qualified lieutenants to assist him. The rationalized and centralized bureaucracies presided over by city managers would be run “scientifically,” meaning objectively, insulated from patronage politics.6

Who Should Rule?

In many ways, then, this aspect of Progressive ideology turned the political agenda of laissez-faire classical liberalism on its head. Liberals of the Jeffersonian and Jacksonian variety had sought to increase outside political influence in the policy-making process through elections and the appointment of party activists loyal to elected representatives. This was because liberals feared that an insulated class of government experts would function more in its own interests than those of the taxpayers.

The Progressives, however, imagined they could create a disinterested nonpolitical class of experts devoted only to objective science. The fundamental question, then, became who should rule: insulated experts or nonexpert representatives with closer ties to the taxpayers. 

We can see today that the Progressives largely succeeded in granting far greater power to today’s technocratic class of experts. The technocrats are praised for their allegedly scientific focus, and we are told to respect their independence. 

If the goal was ever to protect public checks on state power, however, this was always an unworkable ideal. By creating a special class of expert bureaucrats with decades-long careers within the regime itself, we are simply creating a new class of officials able to wield state power with little accountability. Anyone with a sufficiently critical view of state power could see the danger in this. Interestingly, it was anarcho-communist Mikhail Bakunin who recognized the impossibility of solving the problem of state power by putting scientific experts in charge. Such a move only represented a transfer of power from one group to another. Bakunin warned

The State has always been the patrimony of some privileged class or other; a priestly class, an aristocratic class, a bourgeois class, and finally a bureaucratic class.

Moreover, state bureaucratic efforts to plan society from the center, Bakunin noted,

will demand an immense knowledge and many “heads overflowing with brains” in this government. It will be the reign of scientific intelligence, the most aristocratic, despotic, arrogant, and contemptuous of all regimes. There will be a new class, a new hierarchy of real and pretended scientists and scholars.

It is not necessary, of course, to have full-blown socialism to create this “new class.” The modern state with its mixed economy in most cases already has all the bureaucratic infrastructure necessary to make this a reality. As long as we defer to this ruling class of “scientists and scholars,” the Progressives have won.

TORONTO, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —  Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; OTCQX: ELRRF; FSE: P2QM) (“Eloro”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from an additional two (2) diamond drill holes from its on-going drilling program at the Iska Iska silver-tin polymetallic project in the Potosi Department, southern Bolivia. Hole DSBS-02 is a surface hole drilled due north at -300 from the south side of Santa Barbara across the higher-grade likely feeder zone. Hole DPC-09 is the first in a series of drill holes to test the extensive magnetic susceptibility anomaly in the Porco area in the southern part of the property. Four drills including three surface drills and one underground drill are focussed on completing drilling in the Santa Barbara Resource Definition Drilling Area. The underground drill is on its last hole and will be moved to surface to complete drill holes requested by Micon International Limited (“Micon”) to better define the preliminary open pit to be utilized for the maiden mineral resource estimate targeted for completion at the end of Q3.

Overall, the Company has completed 59,499m in 95 drill holes to-date, including four holes in progress, as shown in Figure 1. Tables 1 and 2 list significant assay results for the two drill holes reported. Prices used for calculating Ag equivalent grades are as outlined in Eloro’s February 1, 2022, press release. Table 3 summarizes drill holes with assays pending. Highlights are as follows:

Santa Barbara Mineral Resource Definition Target Area – Surface Drilling

Hole DSBS-02 was collared in the south part of the Santa Barbara target at an azimuth of 00 and dip of -300 to test across the likely higher grade feeder zone for the Santa Barbara Ag-Sn polymetallic mineralization. This hole was drilled to a length of 1,023.4m, corresponding to a vertical depth of 745m, with 67% of the hole containing reportable intersections which collectively average 100.42 g Ag eq/t. Significant results are as follows:

  • 146.65 g Ag eq/t (10.74 g Ag/t, 1.01 g Au/t, 0.31% Zn, 0.11% Pb and 0.06% Sn) over 88.66m from 319.36m to 408.02m, including a higher-grade section of:
    • 737.33 g Ag eq/t (51.11 g Ag/t, 6.82 g Au/t, 0.24% Zn, 0.31% Pb, and 0.19% Sn) over 12.06m from 355.39m to 367.45m. Notably, this is the strongest gold-bearing intercept encountered to date at Iska Iska.
  • 131.86 g Ag eq/t (21.38 g Ag/t, 0.06 g Au/t, 0.25% Zn, 0.24% Pb and 0.14% Sn) over 104.38m from 531.22m to 635.60m, including higher-grade sections of:
    • 224.16g Ag eq/t (50.19 g Ag/t, 0.02 g Au/t, 0.41% Zn, 0.38% Pb and 0.24%Sn) over 26.79m from 543.09 to 569.88,
    • 300.90g Ag eq/t (35.33 g Ag/t, 0.20 g Au/t, 0.26 % Zn. 0.78% Pb and 0.36% Sn) over 10.38m from 590.84m to 601.22m.
  • 78.94 g Ag eq/t (12.77 g Ag/t, 0.06 g Au/t, 0.66% Zn, 0.12% Pb and 0.04% Sn) over 235.43m from 670.27m to 905.70m which included higher grade sections of:
    • 494.81 g Ag eq/t (170.06 g Ag/t, 0.49 g Au/t, 0.37% Zn, 0.35 %Pb, 0.40 % Sn) over 4.46m from 722.70m to 727.16m,
    • 181.64 g Ag eq/t (76.79 g Ag/t, 0.19g Au/t, 0.76% Zn, 0.23 %Pb and 0.07% Sn) over 4.35m from 770.73m to 775.08m,
    • 120.54 g Ag eq/t (15.50g Ag/t, 0.01 g Au/t, 1.57% Zn, 0.34% Pb and 0.03%Sn) over 10.96 m from 800.44m to 811.40m, and
    • 129.54 g Ag eq/t (6.44 g Ag/t, 0.08 g Au/t, 2.03% Zn, 0.34% Pb and 0.02% Sn) over 8.94 m from 853.28m to 862.22m.

Dr. Bill Pearson, P.Geo. Eloro’s Executive Vice President, Exploration commented: “Grade shell modelling in Leapfrog of the Santa Barbara Deposit by the Iska Iska geological team indicates that drilling has defined a higher-grade zone >90 g Ag eq/t that extends approximately 750m along strike, is 650m wide and extends to a depth of at least 750m. The deposit is open in all directions. Figure 2 shows the Santa Barbara deposit model relative to the extensive 3D inverse magnetic susceptibility model, demonstrating the remarkable scale of this enormous mineralized system.”

Dr. Pearson continued: “Figure 3 is a 3D model combining the inverse magnetic susceptibility model and the bore hole induced polarization (“BHIP”) chargeability and conductivity data that clearly shows how this new hole DSBS-02 intersected significant mineralization in an area of an extensive chargeability anomaly coincident with a magnetic high. In the lower part of this hole conductivity increases substantially and indicates that this hole stopped just short of a likely area of massive sulphide mineralization. The coincidence of the magnetic inverse model with the chargeability/conductivity model provides a powerful tool to outline very prospective drill targets. BHIP surveys to a depth of almost 1,000m show that the conductivity increases with depth at Santa Barbara, indicating that the potential feeder zone could be even more substantive.”

Dr. Chris Hale, P.Geo., Chief Geophysicist for Eloro said: “Geophysical targeting is very useful at Iska Iska because the mineralization often occurs in association with pyrrhotite, a mineral that affects both the electrical and magnetic properties of the host rock. BHIP helps to correlate mineralization between the holes because it samples a much larger volume around the borehole than each assay does. BHIP provides two electrical measures of the quantity of mineralization; chargeability that measures the amount of disseminated mineralization and conductivity that shows when the strength of mineralization reaches the point of “connectivity”, resulting in a conductive deposit. This explains the strong spatial correlation between the grade of mineralization and the chargeable volume around DSBS-02. We do not yet have BHIP surveys under DPC-09 but this hole was targeted to test a peak in the magnetic susceptibility that was modelled using surface magnetic data. The excellent spatial coincidence between the mineralized intersection and the peak in magnetic susceptibility gives us confidence that we will also likely intersect mineralization when we drill the larger magnetic susceptibility zone that is modelled deeper and farther to the south.”

Porco Area – Magnetic Inverse Anomaly – Surface Drilling

Hole DPC-09 is the first of a series of holes to test the major inverse magnetic susceptibility anomaly in the Porco area, as outlined in Eloro’s March 1, 2022 press release. This hole intersected 41 reportable mineralized intersections, representing 29% of this 1,124.4m long hole that collectively averaged 94.73 g Ag eq/t. Highlights include:

  • 143.47 g Ag eq/t (10.67 g Ag/t, 0.25 g Au/t, 1.90 % Zn, 0.23%Pb, 0.09% Cu and 0.01% Sn) over 11.96m from 363.57 to 375.53m
  • 84.46 g Ag eq/t (6.52 g Ag/t, 0.03 g Au/t, 1.13% Zn, 0.37% Pb and 0.01% Sn) over 10.63m from 410.09 to 420.72m
  • 79.46 g Ag eq/t (4.47 g Ag/t, 0.02 g Au/t, 1.12% Zn, 0.08 %Pb and 0.03 % Sn) over 42.55m from 740.63m to 783.18m.
  • 82.64 g Ag eq/t (3.48 g Ag/t, 0.05 g Au/t, 0.50% Zn, 0.09% Pb, and 0.08% Sn) over 57.34m from 798.15m to 855.49m including a higher grade section of:
    • 127.94 g Ag eq/t (3.37 g Ag/t, 0.05 g Au/t, 0.50% Zn,0.12% Pb and 0.16% Sn) over 12.02m from 798.15 to 810.17m,
  • 96.13 g Ag eq/t (8.14 g Ag/t, 0.15 g Au/t, 0.40% Zn, 0.11% Pb and 0.09% Sn) over 14.83m from 972.51m to 987.34m,
  • 69.88 g Ag eq/t (8.73 g Ag/t, 0.11 g Au/t, 0.22% Zn, 0.05% Pb and 0.06% Sn) over 40.24m from 1045.82m to 1086.06m including a higher grade section of
    • 100.05 g Ag eq/t (16.71 g Ag/t, 0.08 g Au/t, 0.35% Zn, 0.06% Pb and 0.09% Sn) over 13.25m from 1068.37 to 1081.62m
  • 163.35 g Ag eq/t (48.35 g Ag/t, 0.12 g Au/t, 0.05% Zn, 0.05% Pb, 0.09% Cu and 0.15% Sn) over 5.95m from 1114.63m to 1120.58m

As shown in Figure 4, this hole intersected a very extensive inverse magnetic susceptibility anomaly which, at elevation 3,400m, extends for approximately 1.6km along strike by 700m wide with a vertical extent of approximately 750m. The 3,400m elevation is approximately 100m above the valley floor. Significantly, the last reportable intersection near the bottom of the hole is higher in Ag and Sn with very low values of Zn and Pb. This is typical of what is seen in the Santa Barbara area in the transition from the Ag-Zn-Pb-Sn polymetallic mineralization to the more tin dominant mineralization at depth.

Note: True width of the mineralization is not known at the present time, but based on the current understanding of the relationship between drill orientation/inclination and the mineralization within the breccia pipes and the host rocks such as sandstones and dacites, it is estimated that true width ranges between 70% and 90% of the down hole interval length but this will be confirmed by further drilling and geological modelling.

In calculating the intersections reported in this press release a sample cutoff of 30 g Ag eq/t was used with generally a maximum dilution of 3 continuous samples below cutoff included within a mineralized section unless more dilution is justified geologically.

The equivalent grade calculations are based on the stated metal prices and are provided for comparative purposes only, due to the polymetallic nature of the deposit. Metallurgical tests are in progress by Blue Coast Ltd. to establish levels of recovery for each element reported but currently the potential recovery for each element has not yet been established. While there is no assurance that all or any of the reported concentrations of metals will be recoverable, Bolivia has a long history of successfully mining and processing similar polymetallic deposits which is well documented in the landmark volume “Yacimientos Metaliferos de Bolivia” by Dr. Osvaldo R. Arce Burgoa, P.Geo.

About Iska Iska

Iska Iska silver-tin polymetallic project is a road accessible, royalty-free property, wholly controlled by the Title Holder, Empresa Minera Villegas S.R.L. and is located 48 km north of Tupiza city, in the Sud Chichas Province of the Department of Potosi in southern Bolivia. Eloro has an option to earn a 99% interest in Iska Iska.

Iska Iska is a major silver-tin polymetallic porphyry-epithermal complex associated with a Miocene possibly collapsed/resurgent caldera, emplaced on Ordovician age rocks with major breccia pipes, dacitic domes and hydrothermal breccias. The caldera is 1.6km by 1.8km in dimension with a vertical extent of at least 1km. Mineralization age is similar to Cerro Rico de Potosí and other major deposits such as San Vicente, Chorolque, Tasna and Tatasi located in the same geological trend.

Eloro began underground diamond drilling from the Huayra Kasa underground workings at Iska Iska on September 13, 2020. On November 18, 2020, Eloro announced the discovery of a significant breccia pipe with extensive silver polymetallic mineralization just east of the Huayra Kasa underground workings and a high-grade gold-bismuth zone in the underground workings. On November 24, 2020, Eloro announced the discovery of the SBBP approximately 150m southwest of the Huayra Kasa underground workings.

Subsequently, on January 26, 2021, Eloro announced significant results from the first drilling at the SBBP including the discovery hole DHK-15 which returned 129.60 g Ag eq/t over 257.5m (29.53g Ag/t, 0.078g Au/t, 1.45%Zn, 0.59%Pb, 0.080%Cu, 0.056%Sn, 0.0022%In and 0.0064% Bi from 0.0m to 257.5m. Subsequent drilling has confirmed significant values of Ag-Sn polymetallic mineralization in the SBBP and the adjacent CBP. A substantive mineralized envelope which is open along strike and down-dip extends around both major breccia pipes. Continuous channel sampling of the Santa Barbara Adit located to the east of SBBP returned 442 g Ag eq/t (164.96 g Ag/t, 0.46%Sn, 3.46% Pb and 0.14% Cu) over 166m including 1,092 g Ag eq/t (446 g Ag/t, 9.03% Pb and 1.16% Sn) over 56.19m. The west end of the adit intersects the end of the SBBP.

Since the initial discovery hole, Eloro has released a number of significant drill results in the SBBP and the surrounding mineralized envelope which along with geophysical data has defined a target zone 1400m along strike, 500m wide and that extends to a depth of 600m. This zone is open along strike to the northwest and southeast as well as to the southwest. The Company’s nearer term objective is to outline a maiden NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource within this large target area. This work is advancing well with the mineral resource targeted to be completed in Q3 2022. Exploration drilling is also planned on other major targets in the Iska Iska Caldera Complex, including the Porco and Mina 2 areas.

TORONTO, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from seven drill holes, including the first hole drilled at the Golden Glove Target in the south end of its 100% owned Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre drill program at Kingsway.

Hole K-22-150 intersected 6.22 g/t Au over 4 metres that included 10.31 g/t Au over 2m at a vertical depth of 246 metres. This intersection is located approximately 160 m south of the Golden Glove discovery outcrop where six grab samples, three of which contained visible gold, assayed between 2.99 g/t and 338.1 g/t Au (see news release dated September 21, 2021). This intersection at Golden Glove is the fourth of four targets drilled by LabGold to return significant gold intercepts.

While there are many similarities between the mineralization observed at Golden Glove and that at Big Vein, a significant difference is that while Big Vein occurs on the west side of the Appleton Fault Zone, Golden Glove is situated on the East Side. This is the first drilling on the east side of the fault at the Kingsway Property.https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Labrador%253BFault_(geology)%253BGold%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a0770000002m0AbAAI%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522globenewswire.com%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%252256728853-316a-31bc-a98d-be02627be93e%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

Six holes drilled at the Pristine target intersected near surface gold mineralization over significant widths in the Doyle Zone, including 1.86 g/t Au over 8m in hole K-22-144 and 1.75 g/t over 20.2m that included 2.76 g/t Au over 6.2m in Hole K-22-139.

“We are very pleased with the results from the first hole drilled at Golden Glove especially considering that the intersection is approximately 160m south of the discovery outcrop. This indicates excellent potential for the area between this hole and the outcrop and we are certainly looking forward to the results from the remaining five holes drilled there to date,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of LabGold. “The continued near surface gold intercepts extending the strike length of the Doyle Zone are nice to see especially those with wider intersections. We are encouraged by the successful drilling of our four initial targets, all of which have delivered significant gold mineralization. We will continue to test the new targets developed along the Appleton Fault Zone through the summer, starting with the CSAMT target approximately eight kilometres northeast of Big Vein.”

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 $28 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 159,199,026 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Lion One Discovers Major New Gold Feeder Structure – 20.86 G/t Au over 75.9 Meters at Depth Beneath the Current Resource at Tuvatu, Fiji

North Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 6, 2022) – Lion One Metals Limited (TSXV: LIO) (OTCQX: LOMLF) (ASX: LLO) (“Lion One” or the “Company”) is delighted to announce the discovery of a major new feeder structure at its Tuvatu Alkaline Gold Project in Fiji. Hole TUG-141, targeting a complex network of high-grade structures called the 500 Zone, has encountered the longest high-grade intercept yet recorded at Tuvatu, 20.86 g/t Au over 75.9m, including 43.62 g/t Au over 30.0m which includes 90.35 g/t Au over 7.2m. The new discovery is located at depth beneath the current resource fully within the permit boundaries of the Tuvatu mining lease.

High-grade intercepts from TUG-141 include:

  • 20.86 g/t Au over 75.9m from 443.4-519.3m
  • including 35.25 g/t Au over 37.5m from 471.3-508.8m
  • including 43.62 g/t Au over 30.0m from 477.6-507.6m
  • including 90.35 g/t Au over 7.2m from 494.4-501.6m
  • and notable individual high-grade assay intervals including:

– 138.15 g/t Au over 0.30m from 450.9-451.2m

– 396.16 g/t Au over 0.30m from 479.1-479.4m

– 103.54 g/t Au over 0.30m from 498.6-498.9m

– 340.07 g/t Au over 0.30m from 498.9-499.2m

– 600.42 g/t Au over 0.30m from 499.5-499.8m

– 244.37 g/t Au over 0.30m from 502.5- 503.1m

– 230.18 g/t Au over 0.30m from 507.3-507.6m

– 105.58 g/t Au over 0.30m from 518.7-519.0m

Lion One CEO, Walter Berukoff, stated: “Like the initial discovery of the high-grade 500 Zone drilled two years ago, I believe this new robust high-grade gold feeder mineralization encountered by hole TUG-141 represents a substantial discovery for Lion One. The notable high grades and continuity of mineralization of this intercept demonstrate Tuvatu’s potential to become a large-scale, high-grade underground gold mine. I have long encouraged our team to find that “gold room” at Tuvatu, and hole TUG-141 leads me to believe they have found it. We have only to look at other notable large alkaline Au deposits as direct analogues to better understand what this latest discovery tells us, and it is clear that the discovery of a major high-grade feeder such as this should be viewed as very promising. I am confident that Tuvatu will one day fall in the ranks of notable multi-million ounce Au deposits such as Porgera and Vatukoula. I commend our team on this truly outstanding discovery and I look forward to continued successful execution of both our exploration strategy to realize growth at Tuvatu and our development strategy targeting the commencement of gold production in the second half of 2023.”

Lion One Senior VP of Exploration, Sergio Cattalani, commented: “The mineralized intercepts reported by TUG-141 represent a highly significant development. The grades and continuity observed by the intercepts in hole TUG-141 are of a magnitude not previously documented at Tuvatu, and highlights the largely untapped potential of this deposit. The significance of having identified what may be a new principal feeder conduit for Tuvatu confirms the model that has driven this deep exploration program since the discovery of hole TUDDH-500 in July 2020. Our immediate priority is to follow up of this significant discovery with additional drilling in what remains a relatively poorly drilled portion of the Tuvatu system. Lion One, is now more than ever, convinced of the potential of Tuvatu to become a prominent, multi-million ounce Au deposit at the top of the Au grade distribution worldwide.”

Lion One Technical Advisor, Quinton Hennigh, commented: “Alkaline gold systems tend to be deep-rooted and very structurally complex. Exploring them can be analogous to drilling a tree from the top down. In the shallow part of the system, one finds the upper “branches,” or gold-bearing lodes, but as exploration persists to depth, bigger and bigger “branches,” or lodes, are encountered ultimately leading to the “trunk,” the feeder. The way this remarkable discovery at Tuvatu has unfolded is quite similar to the experience at Porgera, where after approximately ten years of diligent drilling, the high-grade Romane Fault Zone was discovered beneath a myriad of smaller lodes. What is most exciting about this discovery is that now that we have a clear idea where the deep fluid-tapping conduit of this system is located, we can effectively chase it to depth, and alkaline gold systems are known to persist to great depths, sometimes as deep as 2 km. Considering this intercept is only approximately 500m below surface, this discovery is wide open for growth at depth.”

TUG-141 was drilled in the area between modelled 500 Zone lodes 500A, 500C and 500F (Figure 1) where it intersected continuous high-grade Au mineralization grading 20.86 g/t Au over 75.9m that is predominantly hosted by intensely altered, fractured and brecciated andesite. The highest grade core of this zone is characterized by hydrothermal breccia displaying extreme silicification, potassic alteration and sulfidation with regular occurrences of visible gold (Figure 2). In addition, the presence of abundant roscoelite (a vanadium mica mineral) is very encouraging and is a mineral synonymous with the high-grade zones of world-class alkali gold systems such as Cripple Creek in Colorado and Porgera in Papua New Guinea. Some fragments within portions of this breccia are visibly milled, or rounded, indicating vigorous fluid flow. Observations of fracture patterns and textures ranging from incipient and in-situ to full-on brecciation (Figure 2) point to this zone being a dilational breccia that likely formed along a major structural intersection where stresses were being released at the time of mineralization. Rapid depressurisation accompanying seismic movement along such a dilational zone would allow rapid ascent of hydrothermal fluids resulting in silicification, K-metasomatism, sulfidation and rapid precipitation of Au. Textures of minerals observed in veins and open spaces is consistent with a rapid depositional regime.

Lion One is concurrently undertaking a two-pronged exploration drill campaign: 1) shallow infill drilling to enhance definition of its current resource in preparation for mine planning, and 2) deep drilling focussed on better understanding the geometry and extent of the underlying high-grade feeder network. As part of the latter program, hole TUG-141 targeted the upper portion of the 500 Zone at depths between approximately 450-550m where it is projected to connect with the base of lodes making up the Inferred resource. As discussed above, TUG-141 drilled into a very wide and exceptionally high-grade zone, 20.86 g/t Au over 75.9m, cored by hydrothermal breccia (Figure 2). Such a zone of extreme fracturing and brecciation has never before been observed at Tuvatu. It is significant to note that the bulk of this mineralized interval is hosted within andesite rather than by intrusive monzonite, the typical host rock for many lodes at Tuvatu. The significance of this observation has yet to be determined.

Furthermore, it is also notable that the nearest drill holes to TUG-141 are TUG-135 (70m below), TUG-136 (45m to the E), and TUG-138 (60m to the W), indicating that there is considerable space for a substantial increase in the ultimate size of the feeder conduit. All three of these holes have returned previously reported bonanza grade mineralization, similar in tenor and texture to that in TUG-141, including:

24.92 g/t Au over 3.70m from 415.7-419.4m in hole TUG-135 including 159.3 g/t Au over 0.30m;

87.83 g/t Au over 1.5m from 445.1-446.6m in hole TUG-136 including 108.41 g/t Au over 0.60m;

and 23.14 g/t Au over 3.0m from 571.5-574.5m in hole TUG-138 including 118.6 g/t Au over 0.30m.

The area remains open at depth. This target has now become of utmost importance for follow up drilling.

In addition to the impressive intercept of 20.86 g/t Au over 75.9m discussed above, hole TUG-141 encountered numerous other significant mineralized intercepts both above and below this interval including:

Above the high-grade intercept

  • 3.93 g/t Au over 5.7m from 101.7-107.4m including 12.17 g/t Au over 0.30m
  • 4.48 g/t Au over 10.2m from 109.8-120.0m including 38.27 g/t Au over 0.30m
  • 10.98 g/t Au over 1.5m from 291.3-292.8m including 17.20 g/t Au over 0.60m
  • 5.63 g/t Au over 19.2m from 311.7-330.9m including 20.50 g/t Au over 3.00m from 322.2-325.2m, which includes 71.01 g/t Au over 0.30m and 13.75 g/t Au over 0.60m
  • 3.33 g/t Au over 4.50m from 366.3-370.8m including 7.40 g/t Au over 1.20m
  • 11.38 g/t Au over 2.1m from 380.7-382.8m including 22.30 g/t Au over 0.90m
  • 1.97 g/t Au over 13.5m from 391.8-405.3m including 15.25 g/t Au over 0.30m
  • 2.82 g/t Au over 3.90m from 425.1-429.0m including 8.47 g/t Au over 0.30m

Below the high-grade intercept

  • 3.08 g/t Au over 1.50m from 524.1-525.6m including 7.50 g/t Au over 0.30m

In aggregate, all mineralized intercepts reported from hole TUG-141 total 1,909 g/t Au-meters.

Complete results, received to date, from hole TUG-141 are summarized below in Table 1. This is the first drill hole in this part of the Tuvatu alkaline gold system, and as such, orientation and true thicknesses of mineralized intercepts discussed above are not known at this time. Further drilling is required to better understand this new discovery. At the time of writing, hole TUG-141 is still being drilled, and is currently >600m in depth with other mineralised structures yet to be assayed.

Mineralization is observed as two generations of pyrite; an earlier bright euhedral pyrite that forms coarse crystals in the core of the veins and breccia, and a darker brownish, spongy pyrite that typically forms extremely fine-grained encrustations or overgrowths on earlier pyrite and wallrock fragments, as well as lining the edges of most veins (Figure 2). Quartz occurs commonly as bluish grey, amorphous to locally colloform silica. Open space vuggy textures are common, as are visible gold grains. Highest grades (up to 600 g/t Au) appear to be associated with an interval of intense pervasive silicification and sulfidation by up to 30% or more extremely fine-grained pyrite developed throughout the host rock, giving the rock an overall massive chocolate brown appearance (Figure 2). The intensity of replacement suggests this is a zone of very high and sustained fluid flux.

In accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”), Sergio Cattalani, P.Geo, Senior Vice President Exploration, is the Qualified Person for the Company and has reviewed and is responsible for the technical and scientific content of this news release.

QAQC Procedures
Lion One adheres to rigorous QAQC procedures above and beyond basic regulatory guidelines in conducting its sampling, drilling, testing, and analyses. The Company utilizes its own fleet of diamond drill rigs, using PQ, HQ and NQ sized drill core rods. Drill core is logged and split by Lion One personnel on site. Samples are delivered to and analysed at the Company’s geochemical and metallurgical laboratory in Fiji. Duplicates of all samples with grades above 0.5 g/t Au are both re-assayed at Lion One’s lab and delivered to ALS Global Laboratories in Australia (ALS) for check assay determinations. All samples for all high-grade intercepts are sent to ALS for check assays. All samples are pulverized to 80% passing through 75 microns. Gold analysis is carried out using fire assay with an AA finish. Samples that have returned grades greater than 10.00 g/t Au are then re-analysed by gravimetric method. For samples that return greater than 0.50 g/t Au, repeat fire assay runs are carried out and repeated until a result is obtained that is within 10% of the original fire assay run. For samples with multiple fire assay runs, the average of duplicate runs is presented. Lion One’s laboratory can also assay for a range of 71 other elements through Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES), but currently focuses on a suite of 9 important pathfinder elements. All duplicate anomalous samples are sent to ALS labs in Townsville QLD and are analysed by the same methods (Au-AA26, and Au-GRA22 where applicable). ALS also analyses for 33 pathfinder elements by HF-HNO3-HClO4 acid digestion, HCl leach and ICP-AES (method ME-ICP61).

Quebec Precious Metals drills La Pointe Extension: 0.84 g/t Au Over 63 m Downhole, Higher-Grade Core Extended +200 m at Depth, Open in All Directions

MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / May 26, 2022 / Quebec Precious Metals Corporation (“QPM” or the “Company”) (TSXV:QPM)(OTCQB:CJCFF)(FSE:YXEP) is pleased to announce drill hole assay results from drill hole 189 and the six (6) drill holes from the 2022 winter program (7 holes, totalling 2,982 m). The results demonstrate the depth and strike extension of higher gold mineralization for an additional 200 m at the La Pointe Extension gold deposit, on the Company’s 100% owned Sakami project in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory of Quebec.

Highlights (Table 1, Figures 1, 2 and 3)

  • All seven (7) holes have intersected extensive mineralization over wide intervals.
  • The three most significant drill intersections are:
    • Hole PT-21-190: 1.61 g/t Au over 19.5 m including 4.91 g/t Au over 1.5 m
    • Hole PT-21-191: 0.84 g/t Au over 63.0 m including 1.25 g/t Au over 18.0 m
    • Hole PT-21-194: 0.94 g/t Au over 26.9 m including 1.77 g/t Au over 9.0 m
  • These holes confirm the continuity of the sub-vertically dipping higher-grade core of the deposit (500 m strike length, a depth of 600 m with an estimated average true thickness of
    40 m, up to 75 m in the central part of the deposit, and plunging about 45 degrees to the northeast) which could be amenable to open pit mining.

Normand Champigny, QPM’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “These results show that the
La Pointe Extension deposit keeps expanding at depth and remains open in all directions. The drill results will add an important mineralized volume. In addition, we have numerous undrilled targets in interpreted large intrusive bodies near the deposit and over a strike length of 2.5 km to the south of the deposit. Additional drilling will be required to better define the mineralized zones and to optimize open pit geometries.

The 2021 fall and 2022 winter drilling aimed to expand the La Pointe Extension deposit that could be amenable to open pit mining. To date, a total of 47 holes (14,535 m) have intersected the
La Pointe Extension deposit.

The La Pointe Extension deposit and the La Pointe deposit are part of the Sakami project located along a 23-kilometre-long favourable geological contact that hosts gold mineralization. Both deposits are of similar geological character and a sub-vertically dipping higher-grade portion. They show a generally good spatial correlation between the gold mineralization and the abundance of disseminated arsenopyrite, pyrite and pyrrhotite hosted in a silicified paragneiss that is observed in drill holes. At the La Pointe deposit, the mineralized zone has a strike length 950 m, a depth of 450 m with an estimated average true thickness of 35 m, up to 63 m in the central part of the deposit.

Complete assay results and calculated composite grades released to date are available on QPM’s website (https://www.qpmcorp.ca/en/projects/sakami-technical-information/). For previously disclosed results in connection with the La Pointe and La Pointe Extension deposits, see press releases of June 9, 2021, November 2, 2021, February 24, 2022 and March 10, 2022.

The drilling contract was awarded to Orbit Garant Drilling Inc., based in Val-d’Or, Quebec. The hole diameter is NQ. Quality assurance and quality control procedures have been implemented to ensure best practices in sampling and analysis of the core samples. The drill core was logged and then split, with one-half sent for assay and the other retained in the core box as a witness sample. Duplicates, standards and blanks were regularly inserted into the sample stream. The samples were delivered, in secure tagged bags, directly to the ALS Minerals laboratory facility in Val-d’Or, Quebec. The samples are weighed and identified prior to sample preparation. All samples are analyzed by fire assay with AA finish on a 30 g sample (0.005-10 ppm Au), with a gravimetric finish for assays over 10 ppm Au.

TORONTO, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce high-grade gold and silver channel sample assay results from its grassroot generated Olympus target (“Olympus”) within the Guayabales project (“Guayabales”), Colombia. The Company presently has three diamond drill rigs operating at Guayabales with drills turning at the Olympus and Apollo targets as well as the newly discovered Trap target. At Olympus, the Company is focused on expanding upon the recently announced discovery holes of 302 metres @ 1.11 g/t gold equivalent and 216.7 metres @ 1.08 g/t gold equivalent (refer to press release dated March 15 and May 9, 2022, respectively).

Highlights (Table 1 and Figures 1 and 2)

  • Assay results of chip channel samples taken from veins located within historical, shallow underground workings from Olympus confirm the continuation of the high-grade carbonate base metal (“CBM”) sheeted vein system into the southwest portion of the target area with results as follows:

*Channel chip samples reported above are over true horizontal sampling widths of between 0.1 and 1 metre. Sample grades are uncapped
**Channel samples are representative of 2dimensional space and as a result should not be relied upon as being representative of average grades anticipated in any future resource estimate or mining scenario.
***Assay results for base metals are still pending for all samples listed.

  • Multiple CBM veins were sampled, where possible at Olympus, over an area measuring 250 metres x 250 metres from limited and partial exposures of rock in old tunnels. The CBM veins are sulphide rich and associated with intense sericite-illite alteration superimposed on porphyry diorite and mineralized, hydrothermal breccia. Porphyry-related CBM veins can demonstrate robust continuity over significant vertical and lateral dimensions.
  • Drilling, underground sampling and surface mapping to date have expanded Olympus to a target area measuring more than 1,400 metres by 900 metres, which hosts over 50 artisanal mines with over 25 veins mapped from available exposures. The Company believes that the probability is high that additional veins will be discovered as exploration ramps up. The Olympus target is open to the east, west, northwest, south and at depth.
  • Olympus now includes two mineralized zones. Both zones contain multiple porphyry and overprinting CBM veins associated with intense pyrite-sericite-carbonate alteration and hosted in a porphyry diorite (Eastern zone) and within schist country rocks intruded by porphyritic diorite (Western zone).
  • The highest-grade samples collected to date at Olympus come from areas that have yet to be drill tested by the Company. Diamond drilling completed to date has only focused on a small northern portion of the Eastern and Western zones while recent surface and underground mapping has expanded the Western zone to the west and southwest.
  • The Company is planning to move two underground rigs in Q2 into the area covered by these high-grade channel sampling results.

“With the scale of veining and alteration at Olympus and mineralized systems that come to surface, the Company now believes that we have a discovered a vein and broad mineralized system,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman. “The more exploration we undertake, the more high-grade veins we find. We will remain aggressive with drilling at Olympus and look forward to commencing the first underground drill-hole into the high-grade vein portion of the system in June 2022.”

  • These new drill results combined with previously released drill results for the underground drilling are defining a potential major feeder structure for the Ag-Sn polymetallic mineralization in the Santa Barbara Adit area.
  • Bore Hole Induced Polarization (BHIP) surveys to a depth of almost 1,000m indicates that the conductivity increases with depth indicating that this potential feeder zone could be substantive.

TORONTO, May 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; OTCQX: ELRRF; FSE: P2QM) (“Eloro”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from an additional four (4) diamond drill holes from its on-going drilling program at the Iska Iska silver-tin polymetallic project in the Potosi Department, southern Bolivia. Holes DSBU-08, DSBU-07 and DSBU-04 are underground holes drilled from the Santa Barbara adit to test the southwestern and southern extension of the higher-grade mineralized zone. Surface drill hole DSB-26 tested the northwest extension of the Santa Barbara mineralized zone approximately 800m northwest of the Santa Barbara adit underground drill bay. Drilling is currently focussed primarily on the Santa Barbara Resource Definition Drilling Area with two surface drills and one underground drill. One surface drill is completing holes in the Porco area to test for a potential tin porphyry as suggested by the 3D inverse magnetic model (see Eloro press release dated March 1, 2022).

Overall, the Company has completed 56,863m in 92 drill holes to-date, including four holes in progress, as shown in Figures 1 and 2. Tables 1 and 2 list significant assay results for the drill holes in the major target areas. Prices used for calculating Ag equivalent grades are as outlined in Eloro’s February 1, 2022, press release. Table 3 summarizes drill holes with assays pending. Highlights are as follows:

Santa Barbara Mineral Resource Definition Target Area – Underground Drilling

Hole DSBS-07 was drilled underground at an azimuth of 2350 and dip of -500 to test the southwestern extension of the potential higher-grade area in the Santa Barbara Adit area. Hole DSBS-08 was drilled at the same inclination at an azimuth of 2000 while DSBU-04 was drilled due south at an angle of -200. All three holes intersected very long higher-grade intersections:

  • Hole DSBU-07 intersected 160.00 g Ag eq/t (27.37 g Ag/t, 0.62% Zn, 0.52% Pb and 0.11% Sn) over 251.87m from 0.00m to 251.87m, including a higher-grade section of:
    • 178.37 g Ag eq/t (28.84 g Ag/t, 0.69% Zn, 0.62% Pb, and 0.13% Sn) over 208.47m from 0.00m to 208.47m.
  • This hole had a second major intersection of 83.72 g Ag eq/t (6.67 g Ag/t and 0.11%Sn) over 208.93m from 272.87m to 481.8m. This included higher grade sections of:
    • 115.37g Ag eq/t (5.34 g Ag/t and 0.16%Sn) over 40.98m from 328.54 to 369.52m and
    • 224.01g Ag eq/t (1.50 g Ag/t and 0.35% Sn) over 21.58m from 438.11m to 459.69m.
  • Hole DSBU-08 intersected 133.45 g Ag eq/t (19.10 g Ag/t, 0.20 g Au/t, 0.42% Zn, 0.64% Pb, 0.06% Cu and 0.08% Sn) over 289.45m from 0.00m to 289.45m which included higher grade sections of:
    • 152.70 g Ag eq/t (44.65 g Ag/t, 0.08 g Au/t, 0.01% Zn, 0.58 %Pb, 0.20 %Cu and 0.09% Sn) over 22.56m from 0.00m to 22.56m,
    • 150.23 g Ag eq/t (47.17 g Ag/t, 0.03g Au/t, 0.01% Zn, 0.58 %Pb, 0.20% Cu and 0.09% Sn) over 10.82m from 57.10m to 67.92m,
    • 182.92 g Ag eq/t (40.31 g Ag/t, 0.13 g Au/t, 0.30% Zn, 0.88% Pb, 0.05% Cu and 0.14% Sn) over 27.09 m from 90.71m to 117.80m.
    • 222.51 g Ag eq/t (20.38 g Ag/t, 0.12 g Au/t, 1.09% Zn, 1.45% Pb, 0.05% Cu and 0.15% Sn) over 51.24 m from 163.14m to 214.38m, and
    • 254.55 g Ag eq/t (31.50 g Ag/t, 1.17 g Au/t, 0.73% Zn, 0.27% Pb, 0.08% Cu and 0.13% Sn) over 16.42 m from 244.48m to 260.90.
    • Overall, 65% of this 641.9m long hole had reportable intersections which collectively average 107.73 g Ag eq/t.
  • Hole DSBU-04 intersected 97.09 g Ag eq/t (30.11 g Ag/t, 0.41% Pb, 0.06% Cu and 0.07% Sn) over 154.62m from 0.00m to 154.62m which included higher grade sections of:
    • 126.66 g Ag eq/t (7.00 g Ag/t, 0.63 %Pb and 0.15% Sn) over 16.78m from 0.00m to 16.78m,
    • 174.32 g Ag eq/t (70.30 g Ag/t, 0.45 %Pb and 0.12% Sn) over 15.02m from 61.79m to 76.81m

Dr. Bill Pearson, P.Geo. Executive Vice President, Exploration commented: “As shown in Figure 3, a N-S cross section looking east, holes DSBU-07, DSBU-08 and DSBU-4 define a significant extension to the southwest and south of the major high grade mineralized area in the southern part of Santa Barbara. These results combined with previously released drill results for the underground drilling are defining a potential major feeder structure for the Ag-Sn polymetallic mineralization in the Santa Barbara area. Data from on-going borehole induced polarization surveys (BHIP) further reinforce the potential extent of this feeder zone.”

Dr. Chris Hale, P.Geo., Chief Geophysicist for Eloro commented: “Field personnel from MES Geophysics have advanced the borehole induced polarization (BHIP) survey technique to achieve excellent IP/Res data over 1000 m downhole, by reading while the drill is still on the hole. Preliminary analysis of Pole-dipole data at 25m intervals shows that the conductivity within about 10m of the axis of hole DHK-25 increases with depth between 500m and the end of the hole. Chargeability is highest near 525m but remains high (> 10 mV/V) over the entire interval to 975m. Cross hole chargeability and resistivity data have also been collected to a depth of 1000 m, between this hole and both DHK-24 and DSB-06. Data were also collected to 900m in DHK-24. Cross hole data from both DHK-24 and DHK-25 will be used for inverse modelling of the chargeable mineralization. Future BHIP surveys will use the “through-the-drill” technique to collect data, resolving fine detail in the geophysical models even at depths over a kilometer.”

Dr. Osvaldo Arce, P.Geo., General Manager of Eloro’s Bolivian subsidiary Minera Tupiza S.R.L. (“Minera Tupiza”), further commented: “Recent drill assay results from the Santa Barbara zone continue to expand a large and robust tin-silver polymetallic likely feeder zone located to the southeast of the Santa Barbara breccia pipe that is wide open at depth. Holes DSBU-4, DSBU-07 and DSBU-08 encountered numerous intervals of polymetallic oxide and sulphide mineralization that confirm multiple mineralizing events that occurred during the Miocene, which is an important feature of other large polymetallic deposits in the Eastern Andes of southern Bolivia.”

Northwest Extension, Santa Barbara Mineral Resource Definition Target Area

Hole DSBS-26 was collared 800m northwest of the Santa Barbara adit drill bay at an azimuth of 225 and dip of -400. This hole intersected 23 reportable mineralized intersections of which the most significant were as follows:

  • 76.10 g Ag eq/t (2.78 g Ag/t and 0.50% Cu) over 22.19m from 50.22 to 72.41m including a higher-grade section of:
    • 214.83 g Ag eq/t (10.90 g Ag/t and 1.48% Cu) over 4.44m from 50.22 to 54.66m
  • 735.49 g Ag eq/t (615.71 g Ag/t, 0.40 g Au/t, 0.20% Zn, 0.40% Pb and 0.17% Cu) over 10.46m from 134.74 to 145.20m
  • 93.02 g Ag eq/t (41.08 g Ag/t and 0.36% Zn) over 26.75m from 335.85 to 362.60m.

  • 70.56 g Ag eq/t (6.31 g Ag/t, 0.08 % Cu and 0.08 % Sn) over 67.50m from 591.71m to 659.21m including higher-grade sections of:
    • 93.46 g Ag eq/t (5.07 g Ag/t, 0.09% Cu and 0.11% Sn) over 18.06m from 594.72 to 612.78m and
    • 105.19 g Ag eq/t (13.00 g Ag/t, 0.11% Cu and 0.12% Sn) over 13.45m from 636.69 to 650.14m

Note: True width of the mineralization is not known at the present time, but based on the current understanding of the relationship between drill orientation/inclination and the mineralization within the breccia pipes and the host rocks such as sandstones and dacites, it is estimated that true width ranges between 70% and 90% of the down hole interval length but this will be confirmed by further drilling and geological modelling.

Chemical symbols: Ag= silver, Au = gold, Zn = zinc, Pb = lead, Cu = copper, Sn = tin, Bi = bismuth, Cd = cadmium and g Ag eq/t = grams silver equivalent per tonne. Quantities are given in percent (%) for Zn, Pb Cu, Sn, Bi and Cd and in grams per tonne (g/t) for Ag, Au and Ag eq.

Metal prices and conversion factors used for calculation of g Ag eq/t (grams Ag per grams x metal ratio) are as follows (Prices updated as of February 1, 2022, to more accurately reflect current metal prices):

ElementPrice $US
(per kg)
Ratio to Ag
Ag$722.561.0000
Sn$42.560.0589
Zn$3.300.0046

Cd$5.500.0076


In calculating the intersections reported in this press release a sample cutoff of 30 g Ag eq/t was used with generally a maximum dilution of 3 continuous samples below cutoff included within a mineralized section unless more dilution is justified geologically.

The equivalent grade calculations are based on the stated metal prices and are provided for comparative purposes only, due to the polymetallic nature of the deposit. Metallurgical tests are in progress by Blue Coast Ltd. to establish levels of recovery for each element reported but currently the potential recovery for each element has not yet been established. While there is no assurance that all or any of the reported concentrations of metals will be recoverable, Bolivia has a long history of successfully mining and processing similar polymetallic deposits which is well documented in the landmark volume “Yacimientos Metaliferos de Bolivia” by Dr. Osvaldo R. Arce Burgoa, P.Geo.

Eloro is utilizing both ALS and AHK for drill core analysis, both of whom are major international accredited laboratories. Drill samples sent to ALS are prepared in both ALS Bolivia Ltda’s preparation facility in Oruro, Bolivia and the preparation facility operated by AHK in Tupiza with pulps sent to the main ALS Global laboratory in Lima for analysis. More recently Eloro has had ALS send pulps to their laboratory at Galway in Ireland. Eloro employs an industry standard QA/QC program with standards, blanks and duplicates inserted into each batch of samples analyzed with selected check samples sent to a separate accredited laboratory.

Drill core samples sent to AHK Laboratories are prepared in a preparation facility installed and managed by AHK in Tupiza with pulps sent to the AHK laboratory in Lima, Peru. Au and Sn analysis on these samples is done by ALS Bolivia Ltda in Lima. Check samples between ALS and AHK are regularly done as a QA/QC check. AHK is following the same analytical protocols used as with ALS and with the same QA/QC protocols. Turnaround time continues to improve, as laboratories return to more normal staffing levels.

About Iska Iska

Iska Iska silver-tin polymetallic project is a road accessible, royalty-free property, wholly controlled by the Title Holder, Empresa Minera Villegas S.R.L. and is located 48 km north of Tupiza city, in the Sud Chichas Province of the Department of Potosi in southern Bolivia. Eloro has an option to earn a 99% interest in Iska Iska.

Iska Iska is a major silver-tin polymetallic porphyry-epithermal complex associated with a Miocene possibly collapsed/resurgent caldera, emplaced on Ordovician age rocks with major breccia pipes, dacitic domes and hydrothermal breccias. The caldera is 1.6km by 1.8km in dimension with a vertical extent of at least 1km. Mineralization age is similar to Cerro Rico de Potosí and other major deposits such as San Vicente, Chorolque, Tasna and Tatasi located in the same geological trend.

Eloro began underground diamond drilling from the Huayra Kasa underground workings at Iska Iska on September 13, 2020. On November 18, 2020, Eloro announced the discovery of a significant breccia pipe with extensive silver polymetallic mineralization just east of the Huayra Kasa underground workings and a high-grade gold-bismuth zone in the underground workings. On November 24, 2020, Eloro announced the discovery of the SBBP approximately 150m southwest of the Huayra Kasa underground workings.

Subsequently, on January 26, 2021, Eloro announced significant results from the first drilling at the SBBP including the discovery hole DHK-15 which returned 129.60 g Ag eq/t over 257.5m (29.53g Ag/t, 0.078g Au/t, 1.45%Zn, 0.59%Pb, 0.080%Cu, 0.056%Sn, 0.0022%In and 0.0064% Bi from 0.0m to 257.5m. Subsequent drilling has confirmed significant values of Ag-Sn polymetallic mineralization in the SBBP and the adjacent CBP. A substantive mineralized envelope which is open along strike and down-dip extends around both major breccia pipes. Continuous channel sampling of the Santa Barbara Adit located to the east of SBBP returned 442 g Ag eq/t (164.96 g Ag/t, 0.46%Sn, 3.46% Pb and 0.14% Cu) over 166m including 1,092 g Ag eq/t (446 g Ag/t, 9.03% Pb and 1.16% Sn) over 56.19m. The west end of the adit intersects the end of the SBBP.

Since the initial discovery hole, Eloro has released a number of significant drill results in the SBBP and the surrounding mineralized envelope which along with geophysical data has defined a target zone 1400m along strike, 500m wide and that extends to a depth of 600m. This zone is open along strike to the northwest and southeast as well as to the southwest. The Company’s nearer term objective is to outline a maiden NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource within this large target area. This work is advancing well with the mineral resource targeted to be completed in Q3 2022. Exploration drilling is also planned on other major targets in the Iska Iska Caldera Complex, including the Porco and Mina 2 areas.

Goldshore Resources Announces Innovative Technology Application for Moss Lake Project Exploration and Closing of Non-Brokered Financing

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 18, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce that it is working with Dr. Russell Birrell of Globex on implementing his innovative ionic leach soil sampling technique that will enable the Company to detect bedrock anomalies beneath muskeg swamp and glacial till. Initial sampling will be conducted across known mineralization at the QES Zone to calibrate the geochemical response and enable a more accurate assessment of results in new areas.

Peter Flindell, Vice President Exploration, comments“I have worked with Dr. Birrell and the ionic leach technique in Scotland where we successfully identified several mineralized targets. This technique is well suited to the type of cover at Moss Lake and I look forward to reviewing the first results over the QES Zone. The ionic leach program will continue throughout the 2022 summer field season and focus on the targets developed from last year’s VTEM/magnetics survey. This will help us to rank and rate all targets, and to prioritize the scout drilling program, outside the historical Moss Lake deposit.”

Dr. Birrell was part of the team that developed the Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) sampling technique at CSIRO. The MMI technique has been widely used in exploration programs for the past three decades. His work on ionic leach marks an order of magnitude increase in sensitivity that has mapped several concealed mineralized targets in similar terranes.

Closing of Non-Brokered Financing

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has closed a non-brokered private placement of 1,000,000 units (each, a “Unit“) at a price of $0.50 per Unit for gross proceeds of $500,000 (the “Financing“). Each Unit issued in connection with the Financing is comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share“) and one-half common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.75, for a period of 24 months following the date hereof, subject to acceleration if the Common Shares trade above $1.10 on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“) for twenty (20) consecutive days.

The Company intends to use the proceeds raised from the Financing for future exploration work on its Moss Lake gold deposit in Northwest Ontario, Canada and for general working capital purposes.

The securities issued pursuant to the Financing will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada. Closing of the Financing is subject to final approval by the Exchange.

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 strategic shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 22% 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.

Moss Lake hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 1), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 2), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment was completed on Moss Lake in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold1. A historical mineral resource estimate was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc2,3. In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

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.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the above referenced “historical mineral resource” estimates are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current resources and Goldshore is not treating the historical estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the historical estimate on the Moss Lake Gold 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 mineral resource category.
