Collective Mining Discovers a High-Grade Copper and Molybdenum Porphyry Related Soil Anomaly 150 metres South of the Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo 

  • New assay results from detailed soil geochemistry sampling have outlined a high-grade porphyry anomaly averaging greater than 500 parts per million (“ppm”) copper and 30 ppm molybdenum with highest values up to 1,125 ppm copper and 163 ppm molybdenum.  
  • Located only approximately 150 metres south of the southernmost modelled boundary of the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo, this new high-grade anomaly covers an area measuring 250 metres by 150 metres and remains completely open for expansion to the west, east and south. 
  • Follow-up reconnaissance geological work at surface has identified a potassic altered porphyry diorite hosting quartz, molybdenum, and chalcopyrite veins. Surface rock chip sampling from limited weathered (leached) outcrop has returned grades of up to 0.28% copper and 0.13% molybdenum. 
  • The soil anomaly compares favorably in grade and is slightly larger than the soil anomaly covering the southern portion of the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo where recent assay results from drilling have intercepted the highest copper grades to date including drill hole APC-18 which averaged 168.6 metres at 0.98 g/t gold, 69 g/t silver and 0.5% copper. 
  • Immediate plans are underway to test the porphyry target with the first drill hole expected to begin in early Q1, 2023. 
  • Three rigs continue to drill the Main Breccia at Apollo with holes APC-22 through APC-27 awaiting assay results and holes APC-28 through APC-30 nearing completion ahead of a short break for the seasonal holiday.  

Toronto, Ontario, December 14, 2022 – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from soil and rock chip sampling undertaken south of the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) within the Company’s Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. As part of its fully funded 23,000 metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.  The Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia system with previously announced assay results including:  

Hole  Intercept (m)  Au (g/t)  Ag (g/t)  Cu %  Zn %  Pb %  Mo %  AuEq (g/t) *

* See press releases dated August 10th, September 13th and October 6th respectively.   

Executive Chairman, Ari Sussman stated: “The discovery of a high-grade copper and molybdenum soil anomaly associated with a mineralized porphyry body just south of our Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is exciting. As drilling continues to expand the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo, our early-stage exploration team has been focused on prospecting the rest of the Apollo target area to determine if a possible source exists for the copper mineralization found within the breccia discovery. Given the proximity to our Main Breccia discovery, this new high-grade porphyry target suggests we may have found the source. We are eager to test the new target and plan to initiate drilling in January as part of our upcoming 2023 drilling program. We are looking forward to an exciting 2023 as we continue to drive shareholder value through aggressive expansion drilling of the Main Breccia discovery while testing new targets.” 

Details (See Figures 1–3) 

The Company’s exploration teams have recently undertaken outcrop mapping and soil sampling within the Apollo area with the objective of outlining new targets for drilling. This work has outlined a coherent and well-defined soil anomaly for copper and molybdenum covering dimensions of 250 metres east-west by 150 metres north-south. The anomaly is defined by over 70 soil samples with copper values ranging from 310-1,125pmm and Molybdenum values up to 163ppm. Gold in soil within the anomaly has also returned numerous samples (n=12) ranging from 0.1 to 0.4 g/t. The soil anomaly locates only 150 metres south of the southernmost outcropping portion of the northerly dipping Main Breccia discovery at Apollo as defined by drilling and surface outcrop sampling. The southern copper and molybdenum anomaly is still open at surface to the west, east and to the south. 

Reconnaissance geological mapping and rock chip sampling within the anomalous soil area has identified porphyry diorites with secondary biotite alteration hosting porphyry “B” veins with center and border lines of chalcopyrite and molybdenum. Disseminated chalcopyrite was also observed within the limited outcrop exposures with rock chip sampling reporting grades up to 0.28% of copper, 0.13% of molybdenum and 0.8 g/t gold. 

The Company is currently organizing and constructing a new drill pad to test the target with diamond drilling in January 2023. 

The larger Apollo target area, which includes the Main Breccia discovery and other breccia and porphyry targets, is defined to date by surface mapping, rock sampling and copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry and covers a 1,000 metres X 1,200 metres area. The Apollo target area hosts the Company’s new Main Breccia discovery plus multiple CBM vein systems located within and above and below the mineralized angular breccia. Additional untested breccia discoveries locate to the NE and SE of the main breccia discovery. The newly defined porphyry target, as outlined in this press release, is located 150 metres due south of the southernmost end the Main Breccia discovery and is flanked to the southeast by outcrops hosting a high density of porphyry quartz veins associated with early biotite veins in diorite porphyry.  The larger Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.

Lion One Discovers New Near-Surface Lode at Tuvatu and Intersects Ore-Grade Mineralization Associated with Near-Mine CSAMT Anomaly

Lion One Metals, Proven and Probable

North Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 8, 2022) – Lion One Metals Limited (TSXV: LIO) (OTCQX: LOMLF) (ASX: LLO) (“Lion One” or the “Company”) provides results from near-mine exploration, identifying two new zones of significant mineralization within the footprint of the deposit. A new lode, named URA1 has been discovered during construction of the development decline; its location corresponds to Tuvatu’s near-surface and earliest scheduled production area: Zone 2. The lode has been further defined through underground channel sampling and subsequent diamond drilling. The URA1 lode will be included in the updated Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) that the Company aims to release in early 2023. Additionally, several hundred meters to the east of Tuvatu, drillhole TUDDH-612 has intersected mineralization corresponding to a distinct CSAMT gradient anomaly. This release presents significant new results from two separate areas within the general Tuvatu deposit footprint (Figure 1).

Highlights URA1

  • Discovery of near-surface, high-grade URA1 lode from intersection with the development decline, defined through channel sampling (up to 29 g/t Au over 1m in MD-CH-002) and diamond drilling of holes TUDDH-617, 619, and 621 (up to 167.42g/t Au over 0.3m in TUDDH-617, and 27.99 g/t Au over 1.2m in TUDDH-621).
  • Provides increase in volume of mineralized material within the portion of the deposit scheduled for earliest production.
  • A general N-S orientation of the lode corresponds to other major lodes (e.g., URW1) and may indicate the presence of an additional series of undiscovered lodes further to the West of Tuvatu.
  • Underscores the substantial near-mine exploration upside.

Highlights TUDDH-612

  • New ore-grade mineralization of 18.53 g/t Au over 0.6m from 492m corresponding to a sharp CSAMT geophysical gradient anomaly.
  • May represent the possible strike extension of the UR4 lode at Tuvatu, that may also include the deep high-grade intercept in TUDDH-494 at >1100m depth.
  • Tuvatu itself is coincident with a CSAMT gradient of similar magnitude; the recurring correspondence of mineralization with such gradients provides strong validation for the viability of this method for discovery of additional mineralized centers in the caldera. Once completed, this data will provide robust drill targets and substantial projected upside for new discovery.

URA1 lode, Zone 2
During advancement of the 2022 development decline, approximately 75m from the portal entrance, a sharp, clearly defined quartz-sulfide lode was intersected striking NNE-SSW and dipping 84°SE (Figure 2a). This newly identified structure is defined through underground mapping and has control points in space from chip-channel sampling, (results: Table 1) and a three-hole DDH program (TUDDH-617, 619 and 621; Figure 2b) to test the extent of this new lode (results: Table 2). The lode is named URA1, and represents a completely new, previously unmapped structure occurring within the northwestern, near-surface portion of the Tuvatu deposit (Zone 2). The new occurrence discovered near-surface, in a portion of the Tuvatu orebody that is within the current resource estimation extents, illustrates the extraordinary upside potential of the Tuvatu orebody in general. Table 2 lists the interpreted lode for each of the mineralized intercepts in boreholes TUDDH-617, 619, and 621. It is notable that the high-grade intercepts near the bottom of hole TUDDH-617 between 140.1 and 144.6m remain undefined, potentially representing yet another new lode. Moreover, this illustrates the discovery potential of additional mineralization, especially toward the West Zone where relatively sparse drilling has been completed. Notably, this area is defined by historic drilling carried out at a N-S orientation, which would have limited the exposure of the drilling to mineralized lodes trending in the same orientation.

As the discovery and definition of new features continues to add upside, intersection with known lodes, like the Murau 8 lode, intersected with TUDDH-621 at 105.3m returning 4.8m at 30.75 g/t gold continues to provide confidence in the grade continuity of known lodes.

TUDDH-612 and CSAMT profile 6
As part of the Company’s ongoing near-mine exploration program, drillhole TUDDH-612 was completed to test the sharply defined CSAMT1 gradient anomaly on profile 6 (Figure 3). Drill hole TUDDH-612 intersected 18.53 g/t Au over 0.6m at 491.8m depth along the borehole.

As shown in Figure 1, this area is located several hundred meters from the current Tuvatu mineral resource outline. As such, the mineralization intersected at this location represents a new target zone of potential high-grade mineralization that warrants follow-up. Furthermore, the mineralized intercept in hole TUDDH-612 corresponds closely to the strike projection of the UR4 lode, along with the previously reported, deep intercept in TUDDH-494 of 12.2 g/t Au at a depth along the hole of 1106.3m (see April 8, 2022 news release). As such, these intercepts may indicate the extension of the UR4 lode toward the northeast and at depth, increasing LIO’s confidence that the mineralized structure has continuity over space for several hundred meters both to the east and at depth. This structure remains open along strike and up and down dip.

The mineralization observed (Figure 3) corresponds directly with a sharply defined CSAMT gradient anomaly, thus lending significant credence to the application of CSAMT for targeting new zones of potential mineralization. The infill CSAMT survey lines completed in 2022 to complement the previous 2019 survey, are currently in final phase of interpretation. The interpreted survey results will be the subject of a future release. It is expected that once finalized, the combined CSAMT geophysical data from previous and recent surveys will play a significant role in outlining new zones of mineralization near Tuvatu, as well as regionally throughout the Navilawa caldera. A third program of CSAMT geophysics will commence in 2023 and is expected to contribute to coverage of the Navilawa caldera within LIO’s most prospective areas of interest.

Gold Shore Resources Junior Mining Precious Metals

Goldshore Intercepts 2.65 g/t Au over 14.6m in 200 m Step-Out Hole at Moss Lake

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 10, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).


  • Four holes drilled to evaluate the eastern extension of the Southwest Zone have confirmed gold mineralization within anastomosing shears in altered diorite with intercepts of:
    • 39.75m @ 1.18 g/t Au from 44.25m depth in MMD-22-023, including
      • 14.60m @ 2.65 g/t Au from 462.2m 
    • 11.65m @ 1.05 g/t Au from 37.35m depth, and
    • 18.70m @ 1.37 g/t Au from 151.1m in MMD-22-031
    • 10.00m @ 1.05 g/t Au from 290.0m in MMD-22-035

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “We are excited to continue to deliver consistent drilling results. I am encouraged about the high-grade sections we are seeing and have shared previously with the market, as this will provide optionality when we model the resource later in the year and start to look at economic pit shells. With this step out hole from historically drilled areas at Moss Lake, it will further increase the optionality.”

Technical Overview

Table 1 shows the significant intercepts. Table 2 and Figure 1 show the drill hole locations.

Intersections calculated above a 0.3 g/t Au cut off with a top cut of 30 g/t Au and a maximum internal waste interval of 10 metres. Shaded intervals are intersections calculated above a 1.0 g/t Au cut off. Intervals in bold are those with a grade thickness factor exceeding 20 gram x metres / tonne gold. True widths are approximate and assume a subvertical body. The fact that cut and uncut assays are the same, shows that all samples assayed less than the 30 g/t Au top cut.

Approximate collar coordinates in NAD 83, Zone 15N

Results have been received for four holes that have tested the previously undrilled eastern extension of the Southwest Zone. They show that mineralization is continuous in several structurally-controlled zones. The Southwest Zone remains open in both the east and west directions.

These holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 61.85m @ 0.84 g/t Au from 440.25m in MMD-22-023; 124.9m @ 0.48 g/t Au from 95.1m in MMD-22-027; 64.3m @ 0.61 g/t Au from 15.5m and 82.5m @ 0.66 g/t Au from 91.95m in MMD-22-031; and 137.65m @ 0.37 g/t Au from 184.75m in MMD-22-035 among several 10-20 meter wide zones of low-grade gold mineralization throughout all holes.

All of these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures. An analysis of oriented core by structural geologist, Dr. Brett Davis, confirmed that these form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 39.75m @ 1.18 g/t Au from 440.25m in MMD-22-023) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 0.8m @ 33.3 g/t Au from 462.2m in MMD-22-023; 0.3m @ 14.3 g/t Au from 172.3m in MMD-22-027; and 0.65m @ 15.5 g/t Au from 167.35m in MMD-22-031.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “These drill results confirm the potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. Drilling to test potential expansions to these parallel zones of mineralization will continue into the end of the year.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

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

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

About Goldshore

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

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

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

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment (the “Moss Lake Historical Estimate“) was completed on the Moss Lake Gold Project in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (“Moss Lake Gold Mines“)1,3. A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 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.

The qualified persons for the Moss Lake Historical Estimate are Pierre-Luc Richard, MSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and Carl Pelletier, BSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and the effective date of the Moss Lake Historical Estimate is February 8, 2013. In-Pit results are presented undiluted and in situ, within Whittle-optimized pit shells. Underground results are presented undiluted and in situ, outside Whittle-optimized pit shells. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate includes 18 gold-bearing zones and 1 envelope containing isolated gold intercepts. Whittle parameters: mining cost = C$2.28; pit slope angle = 50.0 degrees; production cost = C$9.55; mining Dilution = 5%; mining recovery = 95%; processing recovery = 80% to 85%; gold price = C$1,500. In-Pit and Underground resources were compiled at cut-off grades from 0.3 to 5.0 g/t Au (for sensitivity characterization). A cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au was selected as the official in-pit cut-off grade and a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au was selected as the official underground cut-off grade. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate is based on 352 diamond drill holes (90,978 m) drilled from 1983 and 2008. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. A minimum true thickness of 5.0 m was applied, using the grade of the adjacent material when assayed or a value of zero when not assayed. Capping was established at 35 g/t Au, supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Gems version 6.4. Based on geostatistics, the ellipse range for interpolation was 75m x 67.5m x 40m. The Indicated category is defined by combining the blocks within the two main zones and various statistical criteria, such as average distance to composites, distance to closest composite, quantity of drill holes within the search area. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(Tetratech Wardrop), and Jeff Wilson, Ph.D., P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and the effective date of the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is December 12, 2011. Resources are presented unconstrained, undiluted and in situ. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate includes 2 gold-bearing zones. A cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au was selected as the official resource cut-off grade. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on 116 diamond drill holes drilled from 1986 to 2011. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. Capping was established at 5.89 g/t Au and 5.70 g/t Au for domains EC-1 and EC-2, respectively. This is supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Datamine Studio 3 version 3.20.5321.0. Recource categorization is based on spatial continuity based from the variography of the assays within the drillholes. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348.

Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the Moss Lake Historical Estimate East and the East Coldstream Historical Estimate (the “Historical Estimates“) are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat them, or any part of them, as current mineral resources or reserves. The Company has determined these historical resources are reliable, and relevant to be included here in that they demonstrate simply the mineral potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. 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 Estimates can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category. The Historical Estimates relating to inferred mineral resources were calculated using prior mining industry standard definitions and practices for estimating mineral resource and mineral reserves. Such prior definitions and practices were utilized prior to the implementation of the current standards of the Canadian Institute of Mining for mineral resource estimation, and have a lower level of confidence.

(VIDEO) Goldshore Resources – Moss Lake has Depth, Width and Along Strike

Goldshore Resources – (TSX.V: GSHR | OTCQB: GSHRF)
3D Deck:

Goal: To Create the Next Tier One Asset in Ontario, Canada.

Flagship Project: The Moss Lake Property located in Ontario, Canada has 1.47 M oz of Indicated and 2.51 M oz of Inferred historical gold resources, along with a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment conducted in 2020.

Joining us for our conversation is Brett Richards, the CEO of Goldshore Resources.

Maurice Jackson: Mr. Richards, it’s a pleasure to be speaking with you today as Goldshore Resources has some exciting news for shareholders, as the company continues on its path to creating the next Tier One asset in Ontario, Canada. Mr. Richards, for someone new to the story, please introduce us to Goldshore Resources and the exciting opportunity the company presents to shareholders.

Brett Richards: Goldshore is a company that was formed last year. We’ve been trading for just over a year now, and on the back of acquiring the Moss Lake Project from Wesdome Gold Mines for $52 million in cash and shares last year, we have put together a strategy over the last nine months to drill this up to let’s call it critical mass. What we acquired in the Moss Lake Project was a 4 million-ounce historic resource, and our view is that the extensions of this resource, both laterally along strike and at depth, are significant, particularly along strike.

Our original strategy was let’s put together a 100,000-meter drill program. Let’s get financed and let’s get on with it, and that’s what we’ve been doing for the past nine months, and most recent results are starting to I’ll say support the original thesis we had about Moss Lake being much bigger than first thought.

Maurice Jackson: Before we deep dive into the press release, some important competitive advantages distinguish Goldshore Resources from its peers and truly make the Moss Lake property a unique value proposition. Mr. Richards, for someone new to the flagship Moss Lake property, please acquaint us with the deposit, beginning with your location and some of your neighbors in the region.

Brett Richards: The Moss Lake Property is about 120 kilometers northwest of Thunder Bay in Ontario. We are probably in the most mining-friendly jurisdiction in the world, plus we are on the Trans-Canada Highway, Yonge Street in Toronto, which happens to be the longest street in the world, going all the way to Manitoba. Our concession is adjoined to Trans-Canada Highway.

And why is that important? It’s important for several reasons, particularly about infrastructure. When I look at mining projects, at the end of the day, obviously there’s the technical side of things, but there’s also what I call the do-ability factor. Is this mine really doable? Can you get this into production easily? And the answer for Moss Lake is yes.

Being on the Trans-Canada Highway means we’re afforded 10-cent kilowatt-hour power, which goes right by our doorstep. We have a four-lane highway, so access to our site is as good as it gets. We have power, water, rail, people, consultants, contractors, and government, all within nothing more than an hour’s drive into the City of Thunder Bay, and an international port and an international airport. So, we tick all the boxes when it comes to infrastructure, so that is kind of, I’ll say the description of where we are, and why I think it’s so compelling to be where we are.

There are a lot of people around us as well. The Shebandowan Greenstone Belt where we’re located has been a bit under-explored over the years because low-grade bulk tonnage style deposits were not in favor when gold was $1,500. But now gold is kind of trading on a floor of $1,800, they seem to be much more appealing to investors. Certainly, after the success of Detour Lake, I think you’ll see these types of deposits more and more come into production.

Maurice Jackson: You referenced Goldshore Resources as having a historical resource, and the company also completed a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) back in 2020. Can you share some of those highlights with us?

Brett Richards: Historically the area has been, let’s, so-called cobbled together as a big land package. There are three distinct areas within our domain, the Moss Lake area being kind of the flagship. It is what carries three and a half million ounces of that historical resource. Up in the Northeast, up near the highway, we have Coldstream and North Coldstream and Iris Lake against all kinds of compartmentalized land packages that were cobbled together by Wesdome.

There’s a 500,000-ounce historical resource on Coldstream, and a former actual operating mine at North Coldstream that ran for about 30 years in the, about 40 or 50 years ago. We have a very interesting kind of, I’ll say land package, and the work that has been done on this culminated in 2013 when a PEA was done on the property by Moss Lake Gold Mines.

Again, the PEA was updated in 2020 by WesDome before kind of launching a sale process and let’s face it, PEAs are a snapshot in time, and the time in 2013 and the time in 2020, and the time today are all very, very different, knowing that we are in a hyperinflationary environment today, what CAPEX might have been $500 million back in 2020, might be 600 million or $650 million today.

We have to keep that in mind as we go through. But I think back in 2013, and back in 2020, this project, at these gold levels, at $1,800 to $2,200 gold, and trades between a 27% and a 40% IRR. So, after-tax, the internal rate of return, is very, very compelling. We can look at the new present values of these projects, but again, they’re snapshots in time. What that tells me is that this is a robust project that when tested, even with inflation, even with different input assumptions, relative to the economic circumstances at the time, it is going to be a robust project.

Maurice Jackson: Goldshore Resources currently is embarked on a 100,000-meter drill program. Are you twinning the holes, and conducting step-out drilling on this?

Brett Richards: We are doing some verification drilling of the existing historical resource. We are stepping out laterally. We are stepping out along strike, and we have identified a parallel zone to the Moss Lake deposit, which is very exciting, and some high-grade structural areas within the deposit, which we’ll look to improve the overall grade and volume as we get further down the road, and get closer to a resource estimate.

Maurice Jackson: Speaking of your drill program, some of the initial assay results have just been released. What do they seem to indicate thus far?

Brett Richards: Well, I think they, we’ve always been trying to test our thesis that this is bigger and much more robust as a deposit than the historical resource illustrates. We’ve done that through a geophysical survey, and you can see that on our website, the 3D model of it, where you can see the potential for future mineralization up along strike, that goes 7 to 12 kilometers further than where Moss Lake is now.

But I think the results that we started to put out from the very beginning show between one, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 grams over long intervals, long intercepts of 50, 60, 70, 100, and 120 meters in some cases. I’ll say, some good intercepts, but I think what the surprise has been where we have gone kind of not twining holes, but stepping out a little bit, and stepping into an area that might be classified as inferred.

We’ve hit some high-grade structures, and I think that’s simply because of the geophysical work we’ve done, the structural work we’ve done with a structural geologist by the name of Brett Davis, who’s on-site currently. Pete Flindell, who is our VP of Exploration, he and the team have kind of figured this out. Targeting of some of these higher grade holes has been something that we wanted to do, because ultimately when we kind of go to, I’ll say, interpret all of this data, I don’t think the market is going to want another kind of $1.5 or $2 billion project that does 60,000 tons a day and produces 600,000 ounces of gold. That’s just not viable in this current economic environment.

You’re not going to be able to raise that kind of money. You’re not going to be able to get traction on that type of project. I think we have to start pivoting and looking at alternatives, and what are those? Is there a higher-grade starter pit alternative here within the deposit? I think that’s what we’re going to try and kind of focus on over the next little while. Therefore, there will be more infill and more delineation drilling than anything. But, we are still doing some step-out as well.

Maurice Jackson: All right. Well, let’s get to the press release. Goldshore Resources just received some welcoming news from the assay labs, which identify significant downhole gold intercepts. What can you share with us, Sir?

Brett Richards: We just announced, 78 meters at 1.17 grams from about 170 meters depth. This is a great hole. It’s all going to get contained within an open-pit mine. It’s going to pull a lot of tonnage in. I think, there were some high-grade areas within that, including 22 meters at 2.3 grams and 5.6 meters at 5.69 grams, in and around the 200 to the 220-meter range.

So, this is encouraging, and there are some other intercepts on some other holes that we announced, but it’s all more of the same. There’s anywhere from 20 to a hundred meters at over a gram.

Our objective is to try to maximize the grade. A little bit of grade, 0.1 grams here is going to add 10% to our resource. Even 1 gram or 1.1 gram, it’s quite meaningful at the end of the day. We’ll figure all this out once we get all the data and get towards a mineral source update at the end of the year. But I think right now, and I can talk a lot about the current market dynamics, but sadly, putting good results out into the market has not moved our share price. It’s actually, we have been impacted like all the other junior minors and we’ve been trading downwards.

Maurice Jackson: Looking forward, what can you share with us regarding optionality and economic open pit shells as you model your resource?

Brett Richards: I think we’re going to see a lot of results come out over the next six months or more of the same, illustrating our thesis that this is going to be a real project. Also, I think better delineation on defining this higher-grade starting project, but we can’t lose sight that this is, I think, this is a Tier One asset. This is going to be 10 million ounces by the time the drilling has wrapped up. Whether that’s a year or two or three from now. This is such a large area. There’s probably going to be another 100,000 meters as this gets towards a feasibility study.

Like I’ve said, we’ve got a footprint here that is a Tier One asset at the end of the day, but I think we need to start focusing on what the market is going to respond to. The market is going to respond to, is this a project that has a smaller CAPEX option, a smaller starter with that positive cash flow as soon as possible. Those types of questions need to be addressed and need to be presented to the market. So, we’re going to be looking at some permutations at the end of the day, when we do a PEA next year.

Maurice Jackson: Let’s get into some numbers. Mr. Richards, please provide the capital structure for Goldshore Resource.

Brett Richards: Goldshore Resources has about 143 million shares outstanding today, and only 5 million out warrants outstanding, and we’ve got about $13 million in the bank as of June. We’re well-positioned here and can ride this out.

As I’ve said before, we got caught in a bit of the whole market dynamics. We wanted to play a bit of catch-up, and get ahead of the curve on drilling, so we ramped up our drilling just before the whole market started crashing.

Our team took our foot off the pedal, and we put the brakes on it a little bit. We did scale up to seven rigs, but we’ve pulled back now to a couple of rigs. I want to ride this out. Preservation of cash and preservation of this company is first and foremost.

The capital markets are so volatile and so unpredictable right now, I’m very comfortable just burning a couple of million dollars a month and just watching this, or less than a couple of million dollars a month, and just watching how this unfolds to the fall because we don’t want to be in a situation where, where we have to go to the market and the market is not there for us.

Maurice Jackson: Speaking of being comfortable, I just want to share with everyone that I am a proud shareholder, and I’m looking to add to my position under these circumstances. The value proposition is extremely compelling, and I’m not discouraged by the price. I understand how markets work, and I never complain about a sale when it comes to capital goods. Now, since we’re covering numbers, how does Goldshore Resources compare with some of your peers?

Brett Richards: Well, we’ve never been able to kind of figure this one out, but we’re trading today somewhere kind of in order of magnitude around $10 an ounce, it’s crazy, but that is kind of where we are today. Our peers have also been impacted, but they also had a higher starting point. We’ve got a trading comparable sheet in our presentation that has us at the bottom of our peer group, and this is a peer group put together by a bank. At trading at $10 today, and our peers trading anywhere from $15, $20, $25, all the way up to $100 an ounce for Marathon.Looking at a pure comparison basis, Goldshore Resources is the least expensive among our peers. When you start looking at what it costs to bring ounces onto a resource statement, to put ounces into the inferred category costs about $30 an ounce. If you have a million ounces of inferred resource, it’ll probably cost $30 million to get there, then drilling in other activities.

So we’re trading at a third of that, a third of what it costs to do it. So, I think from an investment opportunity standpoint, there’s one way here, and it’s up.

Maurice Jackson: In closing, Sir, what would you like to say to shareholders?

Brett Richards: I think the really compelling investment case here is how we have performed against the general market, and where we are today. I’ll say the leverage that we have on the way back up. This is not going to go on forever. We may still feel some pain in the capital markets going forward, but we are going to recover, and commodities and equity, gold equities are going to accelerate, and probably much faster than the market when it does turn around, and when it does come back. We are actually leveraged to that even greater than the normal gold equity market, because of our size and our scale, and our potential to bring this up to a Tier One status.

So, there are some compounding, compelling investment reasons why to choose Goldshore, and I am also a major shareholder of this company. I have never continued to lose sight of the fact that this is a real project, and this is going to get into production one day.

Maurice Jackson: Mr. Richards, it’s been a pleasure speaking with you today. Wishing you and Goldshore Resources, the absolute best, Sir.

Brett Richards: Thanks, Maurice.

Figure 2 – Comparative stratigraphy and assay results for drill holes CVZ-76 and CVZ-75 as compared to CVZ-63 which was drilled as part of a prior program. The histogram on the sides of the holes are the composited lithium grades in ppm Li. The cross section has a 4X vertical exaggeration.

“Holes CVZ-75 and CVZ-76 were located near the northeast end of the Phase V and Phase VI drilling. This is an area where the sediments are thinner since we are getting close to the basin margin. However, the lithium grades continue to be high. These holes are expected to continue to upgrade portions of the Zeus resource from inferred to indicated in Noram’s upcoming PFS.” comments Brad Peek, VP of Exploration and geologist on all six phases of Noram’s Clayton Valley exploration drilling.
