Step Out Drilling Expands Collective Mining’s Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo to The West and At Depth

  • Visual observations from two more step-out diamond drill holes, APC-25 and APC-28, within the Company’s Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) have expanded the mineralized footprint of the system to the west and at depth. These holes are in addition to previously announced visual observations for step-out hole APC-22, which was drilled from Pad 3 to the northeast and cut more than 400 metres of continuous mineralization.
  • APC-28, which was drilled westwards from Pad 2, is the longest and deepest hole drilled to date into the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. The hole intersected over 600 metres of continuous breccia mineralization which represents the longest continuously mineralized intercept drilled to date. Visual inspection of the mineralized intercept includes an upper copper rich zone followed by multiple zones enriched by sheeted carbonate base metal (“CBM”) vein overprinting. The hole terminated at approximately 956 metres while still in mineralization.
  • Hole APC-25, which was drilled to the northwest from Pad 3 and designed as a short step-out hole, cut more than 100 metres of favourable mineralization beginning at 65 metres below surface. Visual inspection of mineralization indicates that the intercept will be enriched in copper with 1.5% to 2.5% chalcopyrite being recorded in the logs. This is the westernmost hole drilled to date within the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo and opens the potential for further shallow mineralization expansion to the west.
  • Assay results for the remaining nine holes from the 2022 program are outstanding and expected in the near term.

Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman commented: To date, every time that we have undertaken step-out drilling at the Main Breccia system of Apollo, we have expanded the size of the discovery. The exceptional continuity encountered in drilling highlights the potential for a very large, bulk tonnage deposit with robust grades due to the copper-silver-gold mineralization within the breccia matrix being deposited from both a porphyry source as well as low and intermediate sulphidation vein systems. We will remain aggressive in 2023 with drilling set to resume in the coming days.”

TORONTO, Jan. 5, 2023 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce visual observations from two additional step-out holes drilled into the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo (“Apollo”), which is located within the Guayabales project in Caldas, Colombia. The Main Breccia discovery is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-silver-gold porphyry-related system, which owes its excellent metal endowment to multiple phases of mineralization which include older copper-silver-gold porphyry mineralization and younger, overprinting, sheeted carbonate base metal vein systems.

Details

Twenty-two diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and a further nine holes await assay results in the near term. The Company recently completed two westerly directed step out diamond drill holes, APC-25 and APC-28, drilled from its southernmost drill pad (Pad 3) and from its easternmost drill pad (Pad 2). The holes were designed to test for western and depth extensions to the Main Breccia discovery. The following visual observations are highlighted from the two step out holes:

Hole APC-25 was drilled approximately northwest from Pad 3 to a maximum depth of 215.80 metres and was designed to test for potential westerly extensions to shallow and outcropping breccia mineralization. The hole intersected more than one hundred metres of continuous mineralization beginning at 73 metres down hole (65 metres vertical) and continued until approximately 180 metres downhole (160 metres vertical). The mineralized angular breccia contains a sulphide matrix which includes 1.5% to 2.5% chalcopyrite and between 1% and 3% pyrite plus pyrrhotite. The breccia has been overprinted by a zone of carbonate and base metal (sphalerite and galena) veins which based on previously announced results, host higher gold grades. APC-25 is the westernmost hole drilled into the main breccia discovery and opens the potential for further shallow mineralization in the west.

Hole APC-28 was drilled steeply to the west from Pad 2 to a maximum depth of 956.35 metres and was designed to test for western and depth extensions to the Main Breccia system. The hole intersected a hanging wall zone followed by the main zone of mineralized breccia material. The hanging wall zone was 19 metres thick beginning at 286 metres downhole and then the main zone of mineralization began at 354 metres downhole and continued to the end of the hole at 956.35 metres. The main zone of mineralized breccia hosts an upper portion where the sulphide matrix is rich in copper (chalcopyrite 0.7% to 1.5%), pyrite and pyrrhotite, and a lower portion where multiple zones of overprinting CBM veins were observed. APC-28 is the deepest and longest hole drilled to date and hosts the widest zone of continuous breccia mineralization intercepted to date. The hole was terminated while still in mineralization due to the limitations of the drill rig.

In 2022, a total of 14,975 metres (31 holes) were drilled at the Apollo target. To date assay results have been released for 22 holes with results for the holes that remain outstanding expected in early 2023.

The Company’s 2023 drill program will begin in the coming days and will focus on targeting the high-grade subzones within the Main Breccia system while simultaneously expanding the potential size of the system. Additionally, the Company will remain aggressive in testing new targets at Apollo including the newly generated copper and molybdenum porphyry target located 150 metres south of the Main Breccia system.

Your Crystal Ball for 2023

No one, has a crystal ball when it comes to the future. But, we wanted to share how you may want to position ourself for the future.

#1 PURCHASE PHYISCAL PRECIOUS METALS

  • Why: As a Savings/Financial Insurance/Protection from Government Stupidity.
  • Where to Buy: Maurice Jackson: https://www.milesfranklin.com/faq-maurice/
  • Frequency: Every 2 Weeks.
  • Percentage of Portfolio: Minimum 10%, but we hold approximately 35% in our portfolio.
Economics in One Lesson, Proven and Probable

GREAT FOUNDATIONAL READINGS:

  • Methodology: Using the Ratio’s.
  • Dow:Gold Ratio is indicating that Gold is on sale relative to the Dow. When the ratio is between 4-5, it is more favorable to be in general equities and real estate. At present the ratio is 1 share of the Dow = 18 oz of Gold.
  • Looking further, Silver and Platinum are on sale relative to Gold.
  • Gold:Silver Ratio At present 1 oz of Gold = 76.5 oz of Silver. When the ratio is between 45-54 trade your Silver in for Gold. Note: Silver Eagles have demanded a significant premium the past 8 months. Which actually reduced the Gold:Silver Ratio inside the 45-54 range.
  • Platinum:Gold Ratio: At present .59 oz of Platinum is = 1 oz of Gold. When the ratio is equal to and or greater than 1, trade your Platinum in for Gold.
  • A great resource on the power of Ratio’s and when to buy and sell is: Bob Moriarty’s: Nobody Knows Anything (Must Read)!
Nobody Knows Anything, Proven and Probable

#2 ROYALTY AND PROJECT GENERATORS

  • Royalty and Project Generators use a unique business model relative to their mining industry peers.
  • Why: They tend to outperform mining exploration companies accretively (Highlighted Below):

ROYALTY COMPANIES: https://www.visualcapitalist.com/sp/how-precious-metals-royalty-and-streaming-companies-create-value

PROJECT GENERATORS: https://www.visualcapitalist.com/project-generators-exploration-risk-lower-cost/

#3 JUNIOR MINING/EXPLORATION COMPANIES

  • These companies are most speculative and offer tremendous upside and conversely a lot of downside. We are biased and are active buyers of our partner/advertisers found (Here). For a deeper dive into the mining/exploration industry: (Must Reads):
  • What Became of the Crow by Bob Moriarty
  • Mineral Exploration and Mining Essentials by Robert Stevens

EXPLORATION COMPANIES: https://www.visualcapitalist.com/mineral-exploration-roadmap/

#4 HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE

  • Commit your future to paper. Not having a plan, is a plan. A foolish one, but is a plan. If you don’t have a plan for your savings and investments someone else does. SCHEDULE YOUR PATH.
  • Be willing to study each of the aforementioned. Don’t believe the hype! Don’t get mislead by fancy thumbnails, price predictions, and narratives on manipulation. Is there manipulation? Yes, in every market! Don’t complain about manipulation, learn to leverage manipulation in your favor by realizing you are being offered a discounted price!
  • Be pragmatic, and be patient. Your competition is never patient. They want to price to rise on their schedule, which was yesterday. They will be your best friends, because they have have fast hands and love to sell at the wrong time. If the price goes down, and nothing fundamental has changed with management, the project/s, and or results, there is your buying opportunity!!!
  • Very few investors/speculators are in this space, you don’t have much competition. The best way to beat your competition in this space, is not to follow the herd. Remember, no one get’s it right all the time, you just need to be better than your competition.

Collective Mining Drills 298.6 Metres at 1.54 g/t Gold Equivalent and 102.20 metres at 3.38 g/t Gold Equivalent into the Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo

  • Drill hole APC-20 was drilled on the north-eastern side of the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target into an open area without any prior drilling and intersected a broad zone of mineralization with an abundance of gold-rich, carbonate base metal veins overprinting angular, gold-silver-copper bearing breccia. This intercept represents the highest-grade intersection over 100 metres drilled to date at Apollo with results as follows:
  • Drill hole APC-19 was drilled in the centre of the system in order to expand the vertical dimension in this location. The hole intercepted a broad and continuous zone of copper-silver-gold mineralization and includes a copper-rich subzone with results including:
  • Based on a newly revised model of the Main Breccia system, the Company has identified two high-grade subzones of mineralization and as a result, will be drill tested in 2023 and are outlined as follows:
  • Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with holes APC-22 through APC-27 completed and holes APC-28 through APC-30 underway. Additional assay results are anticipated in the near term.

TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2022 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from three additional holes drilled at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) within the Company’s Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia.  The Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia system. 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.

Executive Chairman, Ari Sussman stated: “Drilling into the Main Breccia system at the Apollo target continues to expand the total volume while delivering long and high-grade intercepts. The discovery of the two new high-grade subzones through detailed geological modelling is exciting as both the copper rich zone and the gold rich zone appear to be open for expansion in multiple directions. Additionally, we believe that the two subzones will coalesce within the system, thereby enhancing the potential for the discovery of even higher grades than we have discovered to date. These areas will be a key target for drilling in early 2023. Without question there is a lot more metal to be found at the Apollo target and we will remain aggressive in unlocking the potential of this remarkable discovery.”

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1–4)

Twenty-two diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and a further nine holes are outstanding. Results of three drill holes are announced below:

Drill hole APC-20 was drilled south from pad 5 to a maximum depth of 445.4 metres and successfully expanded the eastern area of the Main Breccia system at depth. The hole intersected 102.2 metres of continuous gold-silver-copper mineralization beginning at 298.2 metres down hole and ending at 400.40 metres. The hole is characterized by mineralized angular porphyry related breccia with a matrix infill of pyrite, some chalcopyrite and carbonate which is overprinted by zones of sheeted carbonate base metal veins (“CBM”) and veinlets which are associated with disseminated sphalerite and carry higher gold grades. These higher grade CBM zones can now be traced and mapped in multiple drill holes and three have been identified with drilling to date; within the lower, upper and central portions of the main breccia body The following results are highlighted:

  • 102.20 metres @ 3.38 g/t AuEq consisting of 2.72 g/t Au, 28 g/t Ag, 0.08% Cu and includes a higher-grade zone of 33.60 metres @ 7.30 g/t AuEq.

Drill hole APC-19 was drilled in a southeast direction from pad 4 to a maximum depth of 582.3 metres. The hole intersected continuous copper-silver-gold mineralization from 199.20 metres (178m vertical) to 497.80 metres (470 metres vertical). The mineralized breccia contains a matrix of abundant chalcopyrite and some pyrite particularly from the beginning of the hole down to 323.50 metres which is associated with higher silver values and averaged 0.63% copper and 64 g/t silver over this interval. This newly identified shallow plunging high-grade copper zone has been intersected in six of the holes drilled to date and future drilling will target extensions of this zone within the main breccia body. Assay results for APC-19 are as follows:

  • 298.60 metres @ 1.54 g/t AuEq consisting of 0.48 g/t Au, 34 g/t Ag and 0.31% Cu and includes 124.30 metres 2.72 g/t AuEq consisting of 0.62 g/t Au, 64 g/t Ag and 0.63% Cu.

Hole APC-21 was drilled at a steep angle towards the north from pad 3 but unfortunately undercut the northerly dipping main breccia body.

With the recently announced assay results for APC-17 and previously announced visuals from APC-22, 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.  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 from holes APC-22 through APC-30 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 located above and on the eastern flank of the Main Breccia discovery and the Northern Breccia discovery located 250 metres to the north of the Main Breccia. Multiple additional untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets have been generated and will be drilled in due course. The overall Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.

(TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) (“Riverside” or the “Company”), is pleased to report it has signed a definitive sale and royalty agreement with Minera Fresnillo, S.A. de C.V. (“Fresnillo”) a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresnillo PLC for the sale of Riverside’s Tajitos Gold Project (“Tajitos”) located in Sonora, Mexico. Riverside will receive a US$2,500,000 cash payment and retain a 2.0% NSR (“Royalty”).

The Tajitos Gold Project is located less than 30 kilometers from Fresnillo’s Noche Buena mining operations. Riverside’s Tajitos Gold Project includes the Tejo and Tajitos mineral concessions covering 45 km² of prospective ground next to Fresnillo’s property (also named Tajitos).

Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated: “This transaction adds another quality NSR to our growing royalty portfolio and brings our cash position to more than C$8,000,000, which puts us in a great position to grow our business during 2023-2024. We are pleased to deliver another deal with a high caliber international mining company, which is a testament to the quality of projects our team has generated and Riverside maintains in our property portfolio.”

Transaction Details:

Riverside will receive a payment of US$2,500,000 from Fresnillo and retain a 2.0% NSR. Fresnillo will have, for a four-year term, the option to buy back half of the 2.0% NSR for a payment of US$1.5M. If enacted, then Fresnillo would have an additional three years to buy back the remining 1% NSR for another US$1.5M. If Fresnillo does not exercise its first buy back option during the first four-year term, the Royalty will no longer be subject to any buy back provisions. The NSR covers the entire Riverside land package and a full NSR Agreement has been agreed upon and included in the signed contract between the companies. If Fresnillo wishes to reduce mineral claims, then the Company has the first right to retain those mineral tenures before they are dropped.

Riverside remains focused on its 100% owned projects, within its portfolio in Canada and Mexico, and its alliance with BHP. The Company is also always working towards potential incoming additional alliances and partnerships.

Collective Mining Significantly Expands the Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo and Drills Near Surface High-Grade Mineralization Including 168.6 Metres at 2.91 g/t Gold Equivalent

  • Drill hole APC-17, a significant step-out hole to the north, intersected two zones of mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target. The shallow zone, which was intersected directly below where the Main Breccia daylights at surface cut the following interval:
  • The second zone encountered in hole APC-17 cut the longest intercept of continuous mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery drilled to date with results as follows:
  • Drill hole APC-17, which was terminated at 912.8 metres due to rig capacity, bottomed in strong mineralization with the final 2.75 metres averaged 1.56 g/t gold, 9 g/t silver and 0.03% copper.
  • Drill hole APC-18 intersected near surface and high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization approximately 300 metres to the north of the near surface intercept in APC-17. The mineralized breccia in this zone is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of carbonate, base metal veins with assay results as follows:
  • With the result of step out hole APC-17 and recently announced visuals from step out hole APC-22, the Main Breccia discovery now measures up to 385 metres along strike by 350 metres in width (previously 190 metres) and has been extended down to a vertical depth of 825 metres below surface (previously 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 holes APC-19 through APC-26 completed and holes APC-27 through APC-29 underway.  Additional assay results are anticipated in the near term.

TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2022 /CNW/ –  Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from four additional holes drilled at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) within the Company’s 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. 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 intersection of high-grade and shallow mineralization at Apollo demonstrates the excellent metal endowment of the Main Breccia and most importantly, the dimensions of the system continue to expand and clearly point to the fact that we are dealing with a large-scale discovery. It is truly remarkable to drill a 912-metre-long hole that bottoms in mineralization. Finally, the shallow, higher grade intercepts encountered in APC-17 and APC-18 are more than 300 metres apart and confirms that the southern portion of the deposit is where the system comes to surface. As a result, we are about to start construction of a new drill pad located between the two shallow intercepts in order to start defining the shallow portion of the Main Breccia mineralized system,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1–3)

Nineteen diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and a further eleven holes are outstanding. The Company recently completed four drill holes; one northerly directed, step out hole (APC-17), to test for mineralized extensions to the Main Breccia discovery, a second shallow hole drilled southwesterly to define extensions of newly discovered mineralized breccia outcrops located in the southern portion of the deposit and two fringe holes drilled at shallow angles to the west of the Main Breccia discovery.

Drill hole APC-17 was drilled approximately due north to a maximum depth of 912.60 metres. The hole intersected three mineralized zones: 72.3 metres of mineralization beginning at 118.20 metres down hole (100m vertical), 11.65 metres of mineralized breccia from 252.6 metres (220m vertical) and another 547.65 metres of mineralization from 365.15 metres down hole (330m vertical) to the end of the hole at 912.80m (825m vertical).  The hole terminated while still in mineralized breccia due to limitations of the drill rig. Total cumulative mineralization in this diamond drill hole was 628.3 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, some chalcopyrite and overprinting carbonate base metal veins (“CBM”)The following results are highlighted:

  • 72.3 metres @ 2.57 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.00 g/t gold, 28 g/t silver and 0.63% copper (100 metres vertical).
  • 11.65 metres @ 1.88 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.80 g/t gold, 4 g/t silver and 0.05% copper (220m vertical).
  • 547.65 metres @ 1.03 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.76 g/t gold, 14 g/t silver and 0.04% copper (330m vertical).

Drill hole APC-18 was drilled in a southwest direction and intersected shallow, copper-silver-gold mineralization from 136.05 metres to 304.65 metres with the hole terminating at a final depth of 499.05 metres. The mineralized breccia contains a matrix of chalcopyrite and pyrite is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of CBM veins hosting sphalerite and galena. The hole was drilled below outcrops of breccia mineralization in the south-central portion of the deposit with assay results as follows:

  • 168.6 metres @ 2.91 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.98 g/t gold, 69 g/t silver and 0.5% copper (85 metres vertical).

With the result of APC-17 and recently announced visuals from APC-22, 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.

Holes APC-15 and APC-16 were drilled at shallow angles on the western periphery of the main breccia body. APC-15 was drilled to the northwest and intersected mineralized crackle breccia returning 56.05 metres @ 0.57 g/t gold equivalent from 68.6 metres (55 metres vertical). This is a new mineralized area outside of the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. APC-16 was also drilled outside the Main Breccia discovery to the southwest and intersected 500 parts per million copper in crackle breccia from 200 metres and until the end of the hole at 303.35 metres. The Company believes that both APC-15 and APC-16 may have drilled over the top of the Main Breccia discovery in these locations.

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 located above and on the eastern flank of the Main Breccia discovery and the Northern Breccia discovery located 250 metres to the north of the Main Breccia. Multiple additional untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets have been generated and will be drilled in due course. The overall Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.

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

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

Highlights:

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

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

Technical Overview

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

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

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

About Goldshore

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

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CORRECTING AND REPLACING: Granite Creek Copper Identifies New, High-Priority Resource Expansion Targets at Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project in Yukon Canada

This press release corrects, replaces and entirely supersedes the prior version published on November 21, 2022 at 4:00 PM ET

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 22, 2022 / Granite Creek Copper Ltd. (TSXV:GCX)(OTCQB:GCXXF) (“Granite Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce results from an Induced Polarization (“IP”) survey conducted on the Company’s 100%-owned Carmacks copper-gold-silver project (“Carmacks” or the “Deposit”) in the Minto Copper District of central Yukon, Canada. The large, highly prospective, potential resource expansion targets identified adjacent to or near the proposed open pits warrant follow-up exploration in upcoming campaigns. The Company further announces it has closed the second and final tranche of the private placement financing described in a news release dated October 5, 2022.

President & CEO, Tim Johnson, stated, “These multiple new zones and targets adjacent to the conceptual open pits, as defined by the March NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate update, further highlight the prospectivity of our Carmacks project. Our team continues to do excellent work at Carmacks and we are confident in our ability to expand known mineralization and make new discoveries in the lesser explored parts of the 176km2 project. The current focus is the completion of the upcoming PEA and we look forward to reporting on the robust economics of the Carmacks project in the near term.”

Survey Overview

The first survey line (Line 1100S) was conducted over Zone 147 to investigate the correlation between known copper sulphide mineralization and the chargeability response from the Simcoe Geophysics deep-penetrating IP survey (see Figure 2 below). Subsequent survey lines were conducted over near-deposit target areas.

The results of the survey were enhanced by Resistivity Scaled Chargeability (“RSC”). RSC is a ratio of chargeability to resistivity (electrical properties measured by the IP survey) with the applied ratio determined by comparing various ratios to known mineralized bodies. The well-defined Zone 147 was used as a model to determine the RSC ratio that best fit the known mineralization. (See Figure 4 below).

Select Results

Line 1100S, surveyed over defined sulfide copper mineralization in Zone 147, established a model for the RSC response and identified a new zone ~920 meters to the west. This new zone, named the Sourtoe Zone, extends 200m south to Line 1300S. This zone has been investigated with soil samples and trenching, exposing visually mineralized material close to surface (results pending). The soils and trenching were designed to evaluate the geochemical and geological signatures of this near-surface IP response and their similarities to known mineralized zones.

Line 1500S, designed to test the gap area between zones 2000 and 147 (the “Gap Zone”), was successful in identifying a significant anomaly that is offset to the west from both zones. 3D modeling of historic drilling shows that this target has not been drill tested and could represent a southern extension of the 147 zone. The Gap Zone Target is a top candidate for additional near-deposit exploration (See figure 4). Additionally, a new, deeper target area that appears on this line and extends to line 1700S has been identified as the 58 Target.

Line 3300S, the southern most line completed in this survey highlights the potentiality of the area underneath the proposed 1213 pit. Additionally, an anomaly on the western portion of the line has been identified as 1213 west target for further follow up. With the current pit design bottoming out at 180 meters there remains significant room to grow the resource in this area. Additional lines on 200m spacing over the 1213 area are planned for subsequent geophysical campaigns to further define the zone.

Granite Creek Copper Identifies New, High-Priority Resource Expansion Targets at Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project in Yukon Canada

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 21, 2022 / Granite Creek Copper Ltd. (TSXV:GCX | OTCQB:GCXXF) (“Granite Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce results from an Induced Polarization (“IP”) survey conducted on the Company’s 100%-owned Carmacks copper-gold-silver project (“Carmacks” or the “Deposit”) in the Minto Copper District of central Yukon, Canada. The large, highly prospective, potential resource expansion targets identified adjacent to or near the proposed open pits warrant follow-up exploration in upcoming campaigns. The Company further announces it has closed the second and final tranche of the private placement financing described in a news release dated October 5, 2022.

President & CEO, Tim Johnson, stated, “These multiple new zones and targets adjacent to the conceptual open pits, as defined by the March NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate update, further highlight the prospectivity of our Carmacks project. Our team continues to do excellent work at Carmacks and we are confident in our ability to expand known mineralization and make new discoveries in the lesser explored parts of the 176km2 project. The current focus is the completion of the upcoming PEA and we look forward to reporting on the robust economics of the Carmacks project in the near term.”

Survey Overview

The first survey line (Line 1100S) was conducted over Zone 147 to investigate the correlation between known copper sulphide mineralization and the chargeability response from the Simcoe Geophysics deep-penetrating IP survey (see Figure 2 below). Subsequent survey lines were conducted over near-deposit target areas.

The results of the survey were enhanced by Resistivity Scaled Chargeability (“RSC”). RSC is a ratio of chargeability to resistivity (electrical properties measured by the IP survey) with the applied ratio determined by comparing various ratios to known mineralized bodies. The well-defined Zone 147 was used as a model to determine the RSC ratio that best fit the known mineralization. (See Figure 4 below).

Select Results

Line 1100S, surveyed over defined sulfide copper mineralization in Zone 147, established a model for the RSC response and identified a new zone ~920 meters to the west. This new zone, named the Sourtoe Zone, extends 200m south to Line 1300S. This zone has been investigated with soil samples and trenching, exposing visually mineralized material close to surface (results pending). The soils and trenching were designed to evaluate the geochemical and geological signatures of this near-surface IP response and their similarities to known mineralized zones.

Line 1500S, designed to test the gap area between zones 2000 and 147 (the “Gap Zone”), was successful in identifying a significant anomaly that is offset to the west from both zones. 3D modeling of historic drilling shows that this target has not been drill tested and could represent a southern extension of the 147 zone. The Gap Zone Target is a top candidate for additional near-deposit exploration (See figure 4). Additionally, a new, deeper target area that appears on this line and extends to line 1700S has been identified as the 58 Target.

Line 1700S, located 200m south of Line 1500S, shows the probable Gap Zone Target continuing southwards towards Zone 2000 as well as the newly identified 58 Target. Additionally, a shallow anomaly east of the proposed pit is identified as a possible continuation of Zone 4 proximal to the 147 pit.

Line 3300S, the southern most line completed in this survey highlights the potentiality of the area underneath the proposed 1213 pit. Additionally, an anomaly on the western portion of the line has been identified as 1213 west target for further follow up. With the current pit design bottoming out at 180 meters there remains significant room to grow the resource in this area. Additional lines on 200m spacing over the 1213 area are planned for subsequent geophysical campaigns to further define the zone.

Goldshore Announces Open-Pit Constrained Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate of 121.7 Mt at 1.1 g/t Au and 4.17 Moz Contained Gold at Moss Lake Deposit

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 15, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce a mineral resource estimate (the “MRE“) for the Moss Lake deposit (the “Moss Lake Deposit“) located at its 100%-owned Moss Lake Gold Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Project” or the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).

Open-Pit Constrained Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate with an Effective Date of November 14, 2022:

Inferred Resources
(Domains)
Tonnes
(Mt)
Grade
(g/t Au)
Contained Metal
(Moz Au)
Shear34.72.02.20
Intrusion87.00.71.97
Total121.71.14.17


Note: Based on a US$1,500 per ounce gold price and economic cut-off grade of 0.40 g/t Au. Refer to complete notes on Mineral Resource Assumptions below.

  • This is a major milestone for the Company as the shear domain represents an opportunity for a high-grade open-pit gold resource.
  • There is significant and clear expansion potential through strike and dip extensions to known shears, as well as parallel shears. The Company has included 48 holes from its 2021 and 2022 drilling campaign in the new MRE and has drilled an additional 52 holes that are not included in the MRE because assays have not been received to date.
  • The current MRE represents a significant expansion over the 2013 historical estimate for the Project with 35% more tonnes and 33% more contained gold ounces.
  • The Moss Lake Gold Project is host to 29 additional targets over a 35 km trend, which the Company continues to evaluate.

President and CEO, Brett Richards, stated: “This mineral resource estimate confirms our belief that the Moss Lake Deposit is larger than previously thought. More importantly, there is a mass of higher-grade mineralization that can be prioritized in a potential phase one operation that Goldshore can build with a smaller capital requirement. Our findings on this MRE are exciting for the future of the Moss Lake Gold Project, as we now have short- and medium-term options to continue to deliver value to the Goldshore shareholders, as we explore expansions and quality increases (infill drilling to Indicated resource category) to the higher-grade resource; but also while testing other areas of known strong mineralization like East Coldstream, North Coldstream, Iris and Vanguard, across a trend of 35 km on the project.”

Notes on MRE Assumptions (refer to table above)

  1. Numbers have been rounded to reflect the precision of an Inferred mineral resource estimate. Totals may vary due to rounding.
  2. Estimation has been completed within the two separate reported geological domains: a higher-grade shear domain which occurs within a larger lower-grade intrusive domain; modelling of domain boundaries has considered both geology and grade.
  3. Gold cut-off has been calculated based on a gold price of US$1,500/oz, mining costs of US$2.50 per tonne, processing costs of US$12.50 per tonne, and mine-site administration costs of US$2.50 per tonne processed. Metallurgical recoveries of 85% are based on prior metallurgical test work.
  4. An economic cut-off grade of 0.40 g/t Au was applied to mineralized rock in the optimized open pit for processing determination.
  5. Mineral Resources conform to NI 43-101, and the 2019 CIM Estimation of Mineral Resources & Mineral Reserves Best Practice Guidelines and 2014 CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources & Mineral Reserves.
  6. The Qualified Person and Company are not aware of any environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-economic, marketing, or political factors that might materially affect the Mineral Resource estimate.
  7. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves as they do not have demonstrated economic viability. The quantity and grade of reported Inferred Resources in the MRE are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these Inferred Resources as Indicated and/or Measured Resources. The Company will continue exploration intended to upgrade the Inferred Mineral Resources to Indicated Mineral Resources.

Technical Overview

Details of the MRE will be provided in a technical report with an effective date of November 14, 2022 prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101“), which will be filed under the Company’s SEDAR profile within 45 days of this news release. The MRE was prepared by independent mining consulting firm CSA Global Canada (“CSA Global“), a division of ERM Consultants Canada Ltd., in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM“) Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves (2014).

Moss Lake Geology and Model

The Moss Lake Gold Deposit is a structurally controlled gold deposit within the greenstone terrain of the Archean Superior Province. Mineralization is localized where the major NE-trending Wawiag Fault Zone cuts a dioritic to granodioritic intrusive complex. The deposit is defined by a series of anastomosing centimeter- to meter-scale NE-trending shear zones carrying higher-grade gold mineralization, and lower-grade gold mineralization associated with more brittle-style deformation and veining in the intrusive rock mass between the shear zones. Mineralization is associated with pyritic sericitic and chloritic alteration and millimeter- to centimeter-scale irregular quartz-carbonate veinlets.

Detailed geological logging and multi-element geochemical analysis of drill core from the 2021-22 drilling has supported modelling of discrete shear domains within the larger altered and variably mineralized intrusive domain. The shear domains have a different higher-grade gold population to the low-grade intrusive domain and these domains have been estimated separately using different search parameters. Importantly, this allows a more accurate representation of the true variability within the deposit than has been achieved in previous estimates.

Drill Hole Data and QAQC Procedures

The Moss Lake Deposit has been evaluated by several diamond drill programs since the 1970s and earlier. The greatest number of drill holes were completed between 1986 and early 1992 by Tandem/Storimin and Noranda Inc. (311 drill holes for 86,196 meters). A smaller drilling program in 2008 served to validate the older data and lead to the completion of the historical resource estimate (“historical estimate“) by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. in 2013. Following acquisition of the Moss Lake Gold Project, Goldshore commenced a drill program in 2021 that is still ongoing. The program aims to systematically redrill the deposit defined by previous campaigns and, in the process, to validate as much of the historical data as possible.

Prior to the 2008 program, there are no documented QAQC procedures or data available. Additionally, down-hole surveys were not undertaken or used an acid-bottle technique that measured dip and not azimuth. This is the case for most of the historical drilling which was completed in the late 1980s to early 1990s. The ongoing Goldshore drilling program utilizes full industry-standard survey control and QAQC programs and is designed to systematically redrill the Moss Lake Deposit and validate as much of the historical drilling as possible through collar surveys, re-logging, and re-sampling.

Mineral Resource Estimation Methodology

The current MRE is based on an improved understanding of the geological controls on gold mineralization that follows the detailed logging of 48 new drill holes (27,851.75 metres) drilled since August 2021 and with a drill hole database cut-off date of October 14, 2022. The MRE does not include the high-grade intercepts around the margins of the deposit reported on November 1, 2022.

CSA Global was provided with the wireframes for resource estimation by Goldshore. Goldshore modelled the shear zones domain using a combination of geological features and raw assay values above 1 g/t Au using explicit digitizing methods in Seequent Leapfrog 3D geological modelling software (“Leapfrog”). Goldshore modelled the intrusive domain using implicit modelling techniques in Leapfrog using a cut-off grade of 0.25 g/t Au.

CSA Global reviewed the provided wireframes to confirm validity for resource estimation. Statistical and geostatistical assessment of 1 m composites confirmed that the shear domains should be estimated within hard boundaries separating them from the intrusive domain. Statistical analysis was used to determine high-grade capping for each shear zone wireframe and ranged from 20 g/t Au to 60 g/t Au.

The MRE was estimated with a block size of 15 m x 15 m x 5 m utilizing subblocks and constrained within wireframes with a minimum width of 1.50 m. Gold content was estimated using ordinary kriging methods using dynamic anisotropy variogram models. The maximum range of the variogram models generally are between 60 m x 30 m x 10 m in the shear domain and 60 m x 60 m x 40 m in the intrusive domain. The search ellipse was constrained to selecting composites flagged within each domain and varied from half (1st), the full (2nd) and double the variogram ranges (3rd). Additional check estimates were completed using inverse distance squared (ID2) and nearest neighbour methods, the latter on bench scale composites.

Density values for 1,737 samples collected from all Goldshore drill holes were used to determine an average bulk density for each wireframed zone. Values range between 2.70 and 2.72 t/mfor the mineralized domains, 2.7 t/mfor waste rock, and 2.0 t/mfor glacial overburden.

Mineral resources are presented as undiluted and in situ. The historical underground voids from Noranda’s 1980’s exploration program have been removed from the geological model.

Mineral Resource Classification

The MRE has been classified as an Inferred Mineral Resource. This resource classification reflects the fact that the majority of the drill hole data used for the resource estimate is historical, and no QAQC data or reports exist for the majority of these drill holes. Statistical assessment of historical data and recent data provided some support for the historical data, but also included some inconsistencies. The majority of the historical drill holes did not have acceptable downhole surveys meaning that spatial location of the core samples remains uncertain especially beneath 200 m.

While the downhole surveys and QAQC methods utilized for the modern drill holes is of industry standard, these holes remain too sparsely distributed to permit confident mineral resource estimation on their own. Goldshore is now embarking on an extensive program of relogging and resampling of historical drill core, together with downhole surveying where possible. Goldshore’s program of infill and confirmatory drilling is also ongoing. It is expected that this work will support classification of Indicated mineral resource in any subsequent mineral resource updates by Goldshore.

Reasonable Prospects for Eventual Economic Extraction

To support reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction for the MRE, CSA Global used the estimated block model to generate an optimized open pit using Datamine NPV Scheduler software and the following assumptions: a gold price of US$1,500/oz, plant recovery of 85%, processing costs of US$12.50/tonne, mine-site general and administration costs of US$2.50/tonne processed, mining costs of US$2.50/tonne moved and an overall pit slope angle of 50 degrees. NPV Scheduler Software is widely used by mining engineers to apply the Lerchs-Grossman algorithm to block models in order to generate optimized pit shells upon which economic open pit mine designs may be based.

The MRE is constrained within the selected optimized pit shell which reaches a maximum depth of approximately 580 m.

Figures 1 and 2 above show the relationship of the shear and intrusion domains within the optimized pit shell.

Additional Exploration Potential

The modelled shear-hosted domains extend at depth below the optimized open-pit constraining the reported MRE, but the drill hole data are too sparsely distributed to support underground mining optimization studies and reporting of an underground-constrained MRE at this time.

The shears are also open along strike, beyond the modelled strike length of 3.5 km. Historical drilling intercepted gold mineralization over a total strike length of 8 km, which has been a focus of Goldshore’s summer soil geochemistry and structural mapping programs. Furthermore, there remains potential for additional parallel shears with gold mineralization in historical drill holes 500 m to the southeast of the Moss Lake Deposit.

Figure 3 shows the location of mineralized drill holes along and parallel to the strike of the MRE.

Next Steps

Goldshore has commenced an extensive program of relogging and resampling of all historical drill holes whose collars have been located and accurately surveyed. Where possible, these drill holes will also be surveyed using modern downhole surveying equipment.

Notwithstanding the above, a large proportion of the historical drill collars have not been located. The mineralized volumes defined by these historical drill holes will be redrilled in an optimized pattern to accurately define the shear-hosted and intrusive domain mineralization. This will include a full suite of oriented core measurements and multi-element geochemistry analyses.

Work has also commenced on a comprehensive metallurgical testing program led by Ausenco. This work will include a mineral deportment study, grinding tests, gravity separation, flotation, heap leach, and cyanide leach optimization studies. Once complete, Goldshore expects to commence a preliminary economic assessment to evaluate several mining and processing strategies with a view to selecting the most economic and achievable development option. This study is expected to be completed in 2023.

Infill drilling, re-sampling of historical drill holes, and geological modelling will continue throughout the coming months to support a mineral resource estimate update to attempt to upgrade the resource classification from Inferred Resources to Indicated Resources. This work is targeted for completion by the end of 2023 when the Company expects to commence a prefeasibility mining study.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “This mineral resource estimate confirms our understanding that high grade shears form the core of the Moss Lake Deposit and will drive the development of the Moss Lake Gold Project. The Inferred Mineral Resource reflects uncertainty in the collar and downhole surveys of the historical drill holes, as well as the selective sampling technique and lack of oriented core measurements that are critical in directing the high-grade structures that drive the overall estimate. While additional drilling is required to replace many of the historical drill holes and infill gaps in the model, we will be aiming to recover as many of these historical holes as possible by relogging and resampling core and conducting downhole surveys using more accurate survey equipment.
