Collective Mining Expands 2022 Drilling Program at the Guayabales Project

TORONTO, Nov. 16, 2022 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has expanded the scope of its 2022 drill program at the Guayabales project. Following the Company’s recent $10.7 million bought deal financing, combined with the exploration team’s analysis of recent assay results, the Board of Directors has approved an additional 3,000 metres of drilling at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) over the balance of 2022. As a result, the Company now expects to complete approximately 23,000 metres of drilling in 2022.

The Company has already released assay results from the first 14 holes at Apollo and expects to release additional results from holes APC-15 through APC-25 over the near term. Three rigs continue to turn at Apollo with the majority of holes focused on expanding the Main Breccia discovery which has nearly tripled in potential dimension with recent drilling results and now measures 385 metres along strike by 350 metres across by 825 metres depth. Presently, drill holes APC-26 through APC-28 are advancing on schedule. Previously announced results from the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo include:

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

APC-12237.701.15720.380.080.070.0012.88

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

While plans for the 2023 drill program are currently being finalized for the Board of Directors approval prior to year-end, the Company plans to continue its aggressive drilling approach at Apollo with an aim of expanding the Main Breccia discovery even further while testing other targets at Apollo in 2023.

Drilling at the Guayabales project in 2022 has yielded remarkable success with four distinct discoveries made across five tested targets. The obvious highlight has been the Main Breccia system at Apollo; a truly exciting high-grade and bulk tonnage copper-silver-gold discovery. Importantly, the Guayabales project is located in the heart of a 500+ year old mining camp with ten fully permitted and operating mines located within three kilometers of the project. As a result, infrastructure is abundant with hydroelectric power traversing the project in multiple locations and abundant skilled mining labor located in the surrounding towns. We look forward to continue advancing the project aggressively and are confident that Guayabales will be an important contributor to the Colombian government’s bold plan to produce energy transition metals in the near term,” stated Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman of Collective Mining.

Collective Mining Provides a Drilling Update at Apollo

TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2022 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide the following drilling update following the recent closing of its successful $10.7 million bought deal equity financing. The Company is currently advancing on schedule and on budget with its 20,000-metre drill program for 2022.

The Guayabales project is located in the mining-friendly department of Caldas, in the heart of a long-established mining camp with ten fully permitted and operating mines located within three kilometres of the project. As a result, the Guayabales project is blessed with excellent infrastructure with roads and hydroelectric powerlines traversing the project and an abundant labor force located nearby in the townships of Supia and Marmato.

The Company’s Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) has been the primary focus of the current drill program with the discovery hole being announced in June 2022. The Main Breccia discovery is a high-grade and bulk tonnage, copper-silver-gold porphyry-related breccia system characterized by two main yet distinct pulses of mineralized fluids flooding the breccia with metals. The first fluid pulse comes from the porphyry phase of the system and is responsible for impregnating the breccia matrix with most of the copper mineralization as well as some of the silver and gold mineralization. The second fluid pulse comes from the late-stage porphyry related carbonate base metal veins which overprint the breccia and flood the breccia matrix in places with an abundance of silver and gold mineralization and to a lesser extent zinc, lead, and copper mineralization.

There are three drill rigs presently operating at Apollo and to date the Company has completed a total of 25 diamond drill holes with assay results already reported from the first 14 holes. Assay results from holes APC-15 to APC-25 are currently outstanding and are expected to be received throughout the balance of 2022. Also, coring is underway for holes APC-26 and APC-27 with drill hole APC-28 expected to start in the near term. Previously announced intercepts into the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo include:

Step Out Drilling Materially Expands the Overall Dimensions of Collective Mining’s Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo

  • Visual observations from two step-out diamond drill holes within the Company’s Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target have intersected the most cumulative mineralization in drill holes completed to date as well as significantly expanded the known dimensions of this exciting new discovery.
  • Hole APC-17, which was drilled due north from Pad 3, cut more than 600 metres in total of favourable mineralization before terminating at approximately 913 metres while still in mineralization. This is the most mineralization encountered in a drill hole to date at the Apollo target.
  • Hole APC-22, which was drilled to the northeast from Pad 3, cut more than 400 metres in total of favourable mineralization before terminating at 734 metres while still in mineralization.
  • As a result of both new holes, the potential total volume of rock hosting the Main Breccia discovery within it has approximately tripled in size with the dimensions now measuring 385 metres along strike by 350 metres width by 825 metres depth versus prior dimensions of 385 metres x 190 metres x 500 metres. The discovery remains wide open for expansion and further step-out holes are currently being designed.
  • Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with additional assay results anticipated in the near term.

TORONTO, Oct. 11, 2022 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce visual observations from two step out holes drilled into the Apollo target (“Apollo”) which is located within the Guayabales project in Caldas, Colombia. The Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia target with previously announced intercepts including:

HoleIntercept (m)Au (g/t)Ag (g/t)Cu %Zn %Pb %Mo %AuEq (g/t) *
APC-2207.151.46450.310.080.050.0022.68

APC-12237.701.15720.380.080.070.0012.88
See press releases dated August 10th, September 13th and October 6th respectively.

As part of its fully funded 20,000+ metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.

“These two new diamond drill holes are incredibly exciting as we have significantly expanded the size of the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo and while doing so, we have cut the longest intercepts of both total and continuous mineralization completed to date. Importantly, the system remains open to the north and northeast as both holes bottomed in mineralization. We look forward to continued aggressive drilling in order to see how much more this exceptional discovery can grow,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Figures 1–4)

Fourteen diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and a further eleven holes are outstanding. The Company recently completed two northerly directed diamond drill holes, APC-17 and APC-22, from its southernmost drill pad (Pad 3), which were designed to test for mineralized extensions to the Main Breccia discovery. The following visual observations are highlighted from the two step out holes:

  • Hole APC-17 was drilled approximately due north to a maximum depth of 912.60 metres. The hole intersected more than 70 metres of mineralization beginning at 119 metres down hole (100m vertical) and another 545 metres of mineralization from 365 metres down hole (330m vertical) to the end of the hole (825m vertical). Total mineralization in this diamond drill hole exceeded 600 metres and is the most mineralization drilled in a single hole to date into the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. The shallow intercept is hosted within angular porphyry related breccia containing chalcopyrite (1-2%) with pyrite and pyrrhotite and is located directly beneath recently discovered mineralization outcropping at surface. The deeper and longer intercept is also hosted within angular porphyry related breccia with the matrix filled with pyrite, chalcopyrite and overprinting carbonate base metal veins (“CBM”). The hole was terminated at 912.6 metres while still in mineralized breccia.
  • Hole APC-22 was drilled to the northeast to a maximum depth of 734.8 metres and intercepted three zones yielding more than 400 metres of total breccia mineralization. The two shallow zones are located directly beneath surface outcrops and the initial 37 metre intercept commenced at 100 metres downhole (60m vertical), while the second shallow 19 metre intercept began at 167 metres down hole (100m vertical). Mineralization is hosted within angular porphyry breccia with a matrix of chalcopyrite (1-2%) and pyrrhotite and overprinting zones of sheeted CBM veins. The deeper intercept commenced at 308 metres downhole (276m vertical) and continued within mineralized porphyry related angular breccia until the hole was terminated at 734.8 metres.
  • Visual logging of APC-17 and APC-22 have significantly increased the overall maximum potential volume of rock hosting the Main Breccia discovery, which now measures up to 385 metres along strike by 350 metres width by 825 metres depth (prior dimensions were 385 metres x 190 metres x 500 metres). The system remains open for expansion.
  • Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with additional assay results anticipated in the near term.
  • The Apollo target area, as defined to date by surface mapping, rock sampling and copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry, covers an 800 metres X 700 metres area. The Apollo target area hosts the Company’s new Main Breccia discovery plus a vein system flanking its eastern side. Multiple additional untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets have been generated and will be drilled in due course. Lastly, the overall Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.

Collective Mining Makes its Fourth Grassroots Discovery at its Guayabales Project by Drilling 102.2 Metres at 1.53 g/t Gold Equivalent at the Trap Target

  • Three widely spaced reconnaissance holes up to 600 metres apart were drilled to test the Trap target (“Trap”), a north-northwest trending structurally controlled corridor with evidence of overprinting porphyry veins and late-stage carbonate base metal (“CBM”) veins. All three holes intersected highly altered porphyry rocks with multiple sheeted and stockwork veinlets, with hole TRC-1 yielding the most robust results as follows:
  • Recent geological mapping and sampling has materially extended the strike length of the Trap target to 1.75 kilometres, and it remains open in both directions along strike for further expansion.

TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2022 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce diamond drill hole and rock chip assay results from reconnaissance work, which outlines a new discovery referred to as the Trap mineralized corridor (“Trap”). Trap is located approximately four kilometres to the north-northeast of the Company’s flagship Apollo discovery and is one of seven grassroots generated porphyry and porphyry-related targets at its flagship Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. Apollo is a newly discovered high-grade copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia with previously announced intercepts including the discovery hole APC-2, which intersected 207.15 metres @ 2.68 g/t AuEq and APC-8, which intersected 265.75 metres @ 2.44 g/t gold equivalent (See press releases dated August 10th and September 13th respectively). As part of its fully funded 20,000+ metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.

“This new and early-stage discovery at the Trap target highlights the immensely prospective nature of our Guayabales project. With slightly more than one year of exploration under our belt, our young Company, which is anchored by a core team of talented individuals, has drilled four new grassroot discoveries. Our priority remains the drilling and expanding of our flagship Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target, but our reconnaissance exploration teams continue to identify new zones and targets with different styles of mineralization located within a four-kilometre by four-kilometre area hosting a cluster of porphyry and porphyry-related style targets. I am impressed with the continued drilling success at the Guayabales project. Our robust rate in making new discoveries at the project is virtually unparalleled in the mining industry and is a strong testament to the mineral endowment of this emerging mining district,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1 – 3)

The Company recently completed three scout diamond drill holes plus additional channel chip sampling and geological mapping at the Trap target, a newly discovered structural corridor with details as follows:

  • Geology mapping and rock sampling highlights a north-northwest trending structural corridor superimposed on earlier porphyry related mineralization event and all hosted within quartz diorite rocks. Rock sampling of sporadic outcrops along the 1.75-kilometre mineralized corridor yielded 32 samples grading over 1 g/t gold (range 1 g/t Au to 10.7 g/t Au) with silver values up to 687 g/t and copper values up to 3.7%.

  • Three scout drill holes were completed in the central (TRC-1) and southern portion (VICE-1 & 2) of the trap corridor and returned the following significant intercepts:

In each hole the mineralization relates to an early gold-copper (chalcopyrite) phase linked with potassic alteration which is overprinted by a younger precious-polymetallic vein system associated with intense sericite alteration resulting in a white bleaching of the rock fabric. Veinlet systems include sheeted and stockwork forms in multiple different orientations.

  • Trap remains open in all directions and further reconnaissance work continues along this zone. A follow up drill program will ensue once additional data is collected, and targets are further refined.
  • The Company continues to prioritize the Apollo discovery due to the significant results intercepted to date with diamond drilling including hole APC-2, which intersected 207.15 metres @ 2.68 g/t AuEq and hole APC-8, which intersected 265.75 metres @ 2.44 g/t gold equivalent as announced in press releases dated August 10th, 2022, and September 13th respectively). Assay results are anticipated in the near term for four additional holes from Apollo with the following encouraging visual intercepts for two of the holes that targeted and successfully intersected the Main Breccia discovery:

Photos of Various Surface Exposures of Angular Breccia Discovered to the North and East of Drill Pad 3
  • Recent geological mapping of rocks exposed by pad 3 drill access tracks have confirmed that the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo Target daylights at surface north and east of the drill pad.
  • Recently completed drill hole, APC-14, which was drilled due north from pad 3, intersected the Main Breccia approximately 50 metres below the newly discovered northern outcrop. The hole cut more than 240 metres in total of favorable mineralization within the Main Breccia. Assay results for drill holes APC-11 through APC-14 are anticipated in the near term.
  • Visual observation of the shallow portion of drill hole APC-14, indicates a marked increase in chalcopyrite leading to the possibility that copper grades will be higher than seen elsewhere in the Main Breccia discovery. Additionally, the Company’s conviction that the porphyry source for the Main Breccia discovery lies due south has now been increased. As a result, exploratory drill holes are currently being finalized to test the southern porphyry target.
  • The discovery of the northern outcrop of the Main Breccia coupled with visual observations in drill hole APC-14 has extended the strike length of the system to the southwest by 35 metres. As a result, the Main Breccia discovery now measures 385 metres in strike by 100 metres across by 500 metres vertical and remains open in most directions for further expansion. With respect to the eastern outcrop, exploration drilling is required to determine its geometry and how it might connect with the Main Breccia as presently it lies outside of the current working model.

TORONTO, Sept. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that visual observations from outcrop mapping and shallow diamond drill hole APC-14, confirm that the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) daylights at surface over significant areas located to the north and east of drill pad 3 in the southern part of the discovery. Apollo is one of eight grassroot generated porphyry related targets at the Guayabales project, located in Caldas, Colombia. The Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia target with previously announced intercepts including hole APC-2, which intersected 207.15 metres @ 2.68 g/t AuEq and APC-8, which intersected 265.75 metres @ 2.44 g/t gold equivalent (See press releases dated August 10th and September 13th respectively). As part of its fully funded 20,000+ metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.

“Confirmation that the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo extends to surface enhances future possibilities for the project. Additionally, the fact that we see a noticeable increase in chalcopyrite near surface in the southern part of the Main Breccia discovery has our team excited that the porphyry source is nearby and is likely located beneath the robust, yet untested high-grade copper-in-soil anomaly located due south of drill pad 3. As a result, our team is busy planning exploration drill holes to test for the porphyry source with additional details to be provided shortly,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Figures 1 to 3)

The Company recently completed geological mapping of new outcrop exposure created by tracks designed to service the drill rig at Pad 3 at Apollo. This work has confirmed exposure of mineralized angular breccia at surface as part of the Main Breccia discovery first announced by the Company on June 22, 2022. Logging visuals from recently completed diamond hole APC-14, which was drilled beneath a portion of the northern outcrop area, intersected mineralized angular breccia commencing at 50 metres vertically below surface. The following observations are highlighted:

  • During the last two weeks the surface exploration team has identified various outcrops with mineralized angular breccia locating north of Pad 3. Geological observations in all outcrop areas highlight mineralized angular breccia with iron oxides and sulfides within the matrix between the clasts with a partial overprint of sericite alteration. Two historical samples taken from a very limited exposure of breccia outcrop within this area returned 0.6 g/t gold,18 g/t silver and 0.1% copper and 4.1 g/t gold and 29.3 g/t silver respectively. The recently excavated surface exposures have been systematically sampled and assay results are pending.
  • Visual observations from a recently completed diamond hole, APC-14, drilled to the north from Pad 3 and directly underneath a portion of the northern outcrop area, highlighted the presence of angular breccia hosting pyrite and significant chalcopyrite mineralization in disseminations and as replacement within the breccia matrix. This hole intercepted mineralized breccia from approximately 84 metres downhole (50 metres vertical) down to 132 metres with a second zone commencing at 197 metres and finishing at approximately 391 metres downhole. Assay results for this and other holes are expected in the near term.
  • The Apollo target area, as defined to date by limited surface outcrops, rock sampling of CBM veins and available breccia exposures plus copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry, covers an 800-meter X 700-meter area. This Apollo target area hosts the Company’s new grassroots Main Breccia discovery which, based on recent drill results, measures up to 385 metres in strike length by 100 metres in width and 500 metres vertical. The Main Breccia discovery remains open in most directions and drill holes will continue to confirm and expand the discovery. Within the broader target there are additional, yet untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets which could facilitate further expansion at Apollo.

  • APC-3 intersected a broad, high-grade zone of breccia mineralization with multiple, overprinting carbonate base metal veins beginning at 200 metres below surface and returned:
    • 180.6 metres @ 2.43 g/t gold equivalent.
  • APC-5 also intersected the main breccia structure with some overprinting carbonate base metal veining beginning at 135 metres below surface and yielded:
    • 268.00 metres @ 1.50 g/t gold equivalent.
  • Three rigs continue to actively drill at Apollo with four additional completed holes awaiting assay results in the near term.
    • APC-6 and APC-8 were designed to test the main breccia target at Apollo and both holes intersected more than 265 metres of potentially favourable mineralization.
    • APC-4 and APC-7 were NOT designed to test the main breccia target but rather two grassroot concept targets at Apollo. Both holes intersected potentially favorable mineralization with APC-4 cutting a 10-20-metre-thick zone of carbonate base metal veins with visible gold observed in one vein and APC-7 cutting 3 mineralized zones of favorable angular breccia down-hole between 20-40 metres thick.

TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from two additional holes completed at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) at the Company’s Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. Apollo is a newly discovered high-grade copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia and is one of eight porphyry-related targets situated within a three-by-four-kilometre cluster area generated by the Company through grassroots exploration at the project. As part of its fully funded 20,000+ metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target with an additional rig drilling from underground at the Olympus target.

“These latest drill intercepts demonstrate the remarkably continuous nature of this mineralized breccia and overprinting CBM vein system which is now expanding with every drill hole that we complete. With multiple overprinting events depositing mineralization into the system, the Apollo main breccia has all the right markers to evolve into a large-scale discovery. We will remain aggressive with drilling for the balance of 2022,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

A short video presented by David Reading discussing the results can be seen by clicking here.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1 – 4)

Five diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and resulted in expansion of this main breccia and overprinting vein system with dimensions of up to 300 metres along strike by 100 metres across by 400 metres vertical. The target remains open in all directions and has the potential to evolve into a significant high-grade, bulk tonnage mineralized system.

Drill holes APC-3 and APC-5 were drilled in opposite directions from two separate drill pads (Pads 2 and 3) to the northeast and southwest respectively to test continuity of the mineralized breccia previously intersected in holes APC-1, APC-1W and APC-2 and to test the early working model of the geometry of the main breccia (see press releases dated April 27, 2022, June 22 and July 6, 2022)The following results are highlighted:

  • APC-3:
    180.60 metres @ 2.43 g/t AuEq from 303.40 metres down hole (200 metres vertical) including:
    21.10 metres @ 3.47g/t AuEq from 304.9 metres down hole, and
    46.60 metres @ 5.13 g/t AuEq from 363.1 metres down hole.

APC-3 is the first hole drilled from a newly constructed pad (Pad 3) located approximately 400 metres to the south of Pad 1 (Holes APC-1 and 1W) and 300 metres to the southwest of Pad 2 (Hole APC-2 and APC-5).

  • APC-5:
    268.00 metres @ 1.50 g/t AuEq from 210.5 metres down hole (135 metres vertical) including:
    16.35 metres @ 2.55 g/t AuEq from 210.3 metres down hole,
    19.20 metres @ 3.03 g/t AuEq from 252.6 metres down hole, and
    22.25 metres @ 2.92 g/t AuEq from 456.6 metres down hole.

APC-5 was drilled from Pad 2 to the SW with a steeper inclination and a 200-metre vertical difference from the previous intercept reported in APC-2.

  • Mineralization is remarkably continuous along the axis of both intercepts and is hosted within an angular breccia with a sulphide matrix consisting of chalcopyrite (Cu), pyrite and pyrrhotite. Additionally, overprinting carbonate base metal porphyry veins flood the breccia matrix in various locations along the mineralized interval yielding the higher-grade intercepts in both holes. The breccia clasts are all quartz diorite and diorite in composition and this hydrothermal system is clearly linked to a porphyry system.
  • A further four holes (APC-4, APC-6, APC-7 and APC-8) have now been completed with APC-9, APC-10 and APC-11 now being drilled.
    • APC-6 and APC-8 were designed to test the main breccia target at Apollo and both holes intersected more than 265 metres of potentially favourable mineralization.
    • APC-4 and APC-7 were NOT designed to test the main breccia target but rather two grassroot concept targets at Apollo. Both holes intersected potentially favorable mineralization with APC-4 cutting a 10-20-metre-thick zone of carbonate base metal veins with visible gold observed in one vein and APC-7 cutting 3 mineralized zones of favorable angular breccia down-hole between 20-40 metres thick.
  • The Apollo target area, as defined to date by surface mapping, rock sampling and copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry, covers an 800 metre X 700 metre area. The Apollo target area hosts the Company’s new grassroots main breccia discovery plus additional yet untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets. The Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.
