TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from recent drilling targeting the prospective Appleton Fault Zone over a 12km strike length. The drilling is part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre diamond drilling program at its 100% owned Kingsway Project.

Highlights of the drilling include an intersection of 8.60g/t Au over 4.41 metres from 326.89 metres that included 53.52g/t Au over 0.31 metres in Hole K-22-211 that contains visible gold, and 1.31g/t Au over 7 metres from 270 metres including 8.49g/t Au over 0.91 metres in Hole K-22-207 from Big Vein Southwest. Hole K-22-202, drilled at the northeast end of Big Vein, intersected 5.68g/t Au over 2.65 metres from 189.7 metres that included 18.27g/t Au over 0.78 metres.

Hole K-22-211 was collared 40 metres southwest of Hole K-22-174 that intersected 284.1 g/t Au over 0.58 metres and 15.05g/t Au over 1.11 metres (see News Release dated July 7, 2022) and extends the mineralized zone further to the Southwest.

“We continue to have drilling success at both ends of Big Vein which has now been drilled over a strike length of approximately 520 metres and remains open in both directions. In particular, the high grade zone containing visible gold at Big Vein Southwest continues to expand,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO. “Two drill rigs continue drilling at Big Vein to test for extensions of the mineralization in both directions. Drilling will continue through the winter.”

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

Labrador Gold’s flagship property is the 100% owned Kingsway project in the Gander area of Newfoundland. The three licenses comprising the Kingsway project cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including those of New Found Gold immediately to the south of Kingsway. Infrastructure in the area is excellent located just 18km from the town of Gander with road access to the project, nearby electricity and abundant local water. LabGold is drilling a projected 100,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone with encouraging results. The Company has approximately $20 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

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

The Company has 169,189,979 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

StrikePoint Commences Discovery-Focused Exploration Program at the High-Grade Porter Silver and Willoughby Gold Properties

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 5, 2022) – Strikepoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that exploration work has commenced at its 100%-owned Properties located near Stewart, BC in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. 3,000 metres of drilling is planned at the Willoughby gold-silver and Porter Silver Properties, in addition to surface sampling and mapping programs with an emphasis on exploration at the Porter Silver Property.

Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO of Strikepoint states,With a healthy treasury over $5 million, we are excited to commence our drilling programs at the Porter and Willoughby Properties. At Porter, our work will continue to test the limits and source of the historic silver mines; at Willoughby, we will also seek new high-grade gold-silver discoveries in previously unexplored areas.”

Porter Silver Property

The Porter Property hosts the three highest-grade pure silver historic producers in the Stewart area: the Prosperity, Porter Idaho and Silverado mines. Objectives for the 2022 season include:

  • Drill extensions to high-grade silver mineralization outlined in historic resource estimates
  • Explore for the roots of the silver veins and gold-silver-rich intrusive-related mineralization
  • Assess the underground access and workings for future rehabilitation

1,600 metres of drilling is planned at Porter, initially targeting the past-producing Prosperity, Blind and D veins in 8-10 holes. Additionally, mapping and sampling will be completed prioritizing exploring the northwest and eastern areas of the Property. Work at the western side will investigate strong alteration and gossan with historic gold-rich prospects along northwest trending structures. On the eastern side of the Property, significant glacial retreat of the Marmot glacier and alpine icefields have revealed new exposures that have never seen modern exploration.

The Porter Project contains two shears-hosted silver-rich vein systems: the Silverado and Prosperity-Porter Idaho. The showings are 2.35 km apart, located on opposite sides of Mt. Rainey, overlooking the town of Stewart. The Project is located strategically at the head of the Portland Canal, a deep-water port with year-round, ice-free access. Significant underground workings on multiple levels were used by the historic operators. During the 2022 season, StrikePoint will investigate the feasibility of completing rehabilitation of the workings, most recently used in the 1980s for exploration work, to complete a future underground drilling program.

The initial discovery of silver mineralization on Mt. Rainey occurred in the early 1900s. Prosperity-Porter Idaho veins were the focus of the initial work where mineralization is hosted in six parallel dipping shear zones which have been traced in underground workings for up to 425 metres along strike and 360 metres downdip with widths between 2 and 13 metres. The zones remain open at depth. The deposit was mined between 1929 and 1931 and produced 27,123 tonnes with recovered grades of 2,542 g/t silver (73.8 oz/ton) and 1 g/t gold (yielding approximately 2.2 million ounces of silver). Direct shipping ore was transported to the port at Stewart via aerial tramway.

Willoughby Gold-Silver Property

Strikepoint’s 2022 drilling season will commence at the Willoughby gold-silver Property with 1,400 metres in 6-8 holes. Objectives for the Willoughby exploration program include:

  • Drill northern and southern extensions to the 600 metre long trend of mineralized zones along the Willoughby nunatak
  • Exploratory drilling to discover new mineralization to the west of the Willoughby nunatak trend

Willoughby occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-stage Red Mountain Deposit owned by Ascot Resources. Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcano-sedimentary rocks underlay the property, subsequently intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at the nearby Red Mountain deposit. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primary pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite and native gold. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to date over a one-kilometre strike-length mineralized trend.
