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 1300S shows a potential continuation of the Sourtoe Zone, giving the zone a minimum of 200m strike length as well as a new, deeper target, the 147 Deep Target, several hundred meters below the proposed 147 pit.

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.

Rover Metals Receives TSXV Approval for Nevada Lithium Project Acquisition

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FSE:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) announces that further to its releases of September 20, 2022, and November 17, 2022, it is pleased to announce that it has now received Toronto Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval of its definitive agreement to option a 100% ownership interest in a claystone lithium project (the “Option Agreement”) located in the southwest lithium jurisdiction of the state of Nevada, USA. The Option Agreement is dated with an effective date of November 16, 2022. The land package under option is a district scale lithium claystone deposit situated on Bureau of Land Management land.

Let’s Go Lithium Property, NV, USA
The Let’s Go Lithium claystone property is located in Nevada’s famous southwest lithium jurisdiction and is approximately 6,000 acres in size. The Company, through the vendor of the project, and through ALS Laboratories, has verified high-grade lithium surface samples at the project. Highlights of these surface grab samples processed by ALS Laboratories include: Sample# AMZ-8 of 780ppm Li, Sample# AMZ-26 of 910ppm Li, and Sample# AMZ-28 of 710ppm Li. The Company has pulled additional surface grab samples from the project and analysed them with a Handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (“HH LIBS”). Highlights of the HH LIBS include: 1,218 ppm Li, 778 ppm Li, 724 ppm Li, and 707 ppm Li.

Lion One Extends the URW3 Lode, a Key Component of The 500 Zone Feeder, with Several Bonanza-Grade Drill Intercepts at Its Tuvatu Gold Mine, Fiji

North Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 18, 2022) – Lion One Metals Limited (TSXV: LIO) (OTCQX: LOMLF) (ASX: LLO) (“Lion One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has produced additional bonanza-grade drilling intercepts and expanded the Deep Feeder Zone 500 by increasing the vertical extent of the URW3 Lode by at least 180 m at its high-grade Tuvatu Alkaline Gold Project in Fiji.

The results from these holes confirm a significant increase in the vertical extension and continuity of the URW3 mineralized zone, which occurs on the western margin and as part of the high-grade feeder zone. The new drill intercepts, in conjunction with results from the previously drilled TUG-138 drill hole, correspond to a significant increase in grade with depth, as numerous bonanza-grade intercepts return gold assay values ranging from 100-800 g/t gold. Additionally, this drilling confirms an increase in the vertical extent of this distinct portion of the 500 zone feeder by at least 180 m. The high-grade feeder zone remains open at depth.

Overall, the drill results reported here are consistent with a persistent, substantial upside being realized at Tuvatu resulting from the aggressive deep drilling adopted by the company since the initial discovery of the deep feeder zone by hole TUDDH-500, in July of 2020.

Highlights:

An increase of at least 180 m in the vertical extent of the URW3 lode as defined by bonanza grade intercepts

Multiple high-grade intercepts including from TUG-149 including 12.89 g/t Au over 12.9 m from 254.4 m, 84.61 g/t Au over 3.9 m from 318.6 m, and 48.65 g/t Au over 5.4 m from 423.3 m

Definition of a new portion of deep, high-grade feeder material that is separate from, and parallel to, the high-grade zone previously defined by TUG-141/TUDDH-601/TUDDH-608

which includes627.5627.80.363.86

Technical advisor to the Company, Dr. Quinton Hennigh commented: This drilling is leading us closer and closer to the main conduits of this remarkable high-grade gold system. Without question, URW3 is turning into a big branch of the ‘tree.’ The junction between it and the rest of the 500 Zone looks like it forms a pipe, perhaps the one that has allowed mineralizing fluids to flow upwards. If we chase this down with further drilling, I think it could lead us to parts of the system in which considerable gold was deposited. We must keep drilling.

Drill holes TUDDH-613 and 616, and TUG-149 were designed to follow up the previously announced discovery of the very high-grade zone of Au mineralization discovered by hole TUG-141 (Read June 6, 2022 News Release), and subsequently followed up by holes TUDDH-601 (Read August 15, 2022 News Release), and TUDDH-608 (Read Nov. 7, 2022 News Release). Holes TUG-149, TUDDH-613, and TUDDH-616 all intersected a distinct zone, located approximately 60 m to the west of the TUG-141 structural corridor, that corresponds to the down-dip projection of the URW3 lode (Figure 1). The substantial bonanza-grade intercepts (Figure 2) in these drill holes, along with the high-grade intercepts in a previously reported hole TUG-138 (Read June 6, 2022 News Release) of 23.14 g/t Au over 3.0 m including 118.6 g/t Au over 0.3 m, collectively define a significant vertical extension to URW3 of at least 180 m.

Sr. Vice-President of Exploration, Sergio Cattalani states: “This is yet another major advance in our continuing efforts to follow and delineate what is increasingly understood to be the principal high-grade feeder at Tuvatu. While we believe we are rapidly defining major portions of the feeder structures, we are also confident that we are in no way near its base. This feeder is developing into a bonanza-grade zone defined by multiple major channel-ways that appear to coalesce. With the TUG-141/TUDDH-601/608 zone, and now the URW3 zone, we have at least two, distinct but likely interconnected corridors of continuous high-grade mineralization to follow up. We’re just getting started…

Figure 1 below represents a 15 m thick longitudinal section along the dip-extent of the URW3 lode, and illustrates the effect of TUG-149, TUDDH-613, and TUDDH-616 on what appears to be the downward extension of this important structure. The TUDDH-613 and TUDDH-616 traces are relatively short because the holes are oblique to the section. TUG-149 appears as a longer continuous trace as it remained at a very low angle to the dip of the URW3 lode. This is also reflected by the long interval of 12.9m of 12.89 g/t Au from 254.4-267.3m depth. TUG-138 (red diamonds) was a pre-existing hole, but in light of the most recent drill results, is now interpreted to also form part of the downward extension of the URW3 lode.

Au) and 1,325,000 tonnes inferred at 9.0 g/t Au (384,000 oz. Au) at a cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t Au. The technical report is available on the Lion One website at www.liononemetals.com and on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

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

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

Rover Signs Definitive Option Agreement for Nevada Lithium Project

Vancouver, British Columbia – (November 17, 2022) – Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FSE:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) announces that further to its release of September 20, 2022, it is pleased to announce that it has now signed the definitive agreement to option a 100% ownership interest in a claystone lithium project (the “Option Agreement”) located in the southwest lithium jurisdiction of the state of Nevada, USA. The Option Agreement is dated with an effective date of November 16, 2022. The land package under option is a district scale lithium claystone deposit situated on Bureau of Land Management land. The Option Agreement is subject to final approval by the Toronto Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”). An updating release will be provided once the Company has received TSXV approval.

On November 26, 2022, the Company also announced the first closing of $376,000 under its current financing. The use of proceeds of which will include furthering the development of our new Nevada Lithium project.

Let’s Go Lithium Property
The Let’s Go Lithium property is located in Nevada’s famous southwest lithium jurisdiction and is approximately 6,000 acres in size. The Company, through the vendor of the project, and through ALS Laboratories, has verified high-grade lithium surface samples at the project. Highlights of these surface grab samples processed by ALS Laboratories include: Sample# AMZ-8 of 780ppm Li, Sample# AMZ-26 of 910ppm Li, and Sample# AMZ-28 of 710ppm Li. The Company has pulled additional surface grab samples from the project and analysed them with a Handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (“HH LIBS”). Highlights of the HH LIBS include: 1,218 ppm Li, 778 ppm Li, 724 ppm Li, and 707 ppm Li.

The project includes green energy infrastructure of hydro power lines, and has direct road access, and a nearby town with a readily available work force.

Later-stage comparable claystone lithium projects include Cypress Development’s Clayton Valley project; American Lithium’s TLC project; Noram Lithium’s Zeus project, and Iconic Minerals’ Bonnie Claire project. All of the aforementioned companies are later-stage mining companies, with a NI 43-101 resource definition. Rover’s Nevada Lithium project is greenfields in nature, with no drilling to date. Historic water well drilling at the Let’s Go Lithium property by the USGS indicates that the claystone is near to surface, and over 90 meters in average thickness.

Summary of First Year Commitments Under the Option Agreement
The Company’s earn-in to a 100% ownership of the claystone lithium project calls for USD200,000 in exploration expenditures within 24 months of the signing of a definitive agreement and a common share payment of USD25,000 worth of the Company’s common shares to be made on January 31, 2023.

Technical information has been approved by David White, P.Geo., QP for the purposes of NI 43-101. ALS Laboratories is ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015 certified.

Judson Culter, CEO at Rover Metals, states, “The Biden Administration’s Bill for Inflation Reduction and Energy puts milestones in place for critical minerals like Lithium to be produced within North America effective January 1, 2023. Given the mining friendly jurisdiction of Nevada, and the nature of claystones, we see the Let’s Go Lithium project as a shovel ready, fast-tracked opportunity for development.”

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-2207.151.46450.310.080.050.0022.68
APC-8265.751.26550.220.070.050.0452.44
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.

  • 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.

Collective Mining to Present at 121 Mining Investment Conference November 22-23, 2022

TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2022 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it will be participating in the 121 Mining Investment Conference, taking place November 22-23, 2022 in London, UK.

Investors and interested parties can arrange a face-to-face meeting with management by registering at https://www.weare121.com/121mininginvestment-london

Management will discuss the Company’s “Main Breccia” discovery at the Apollo target. 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 Company’s 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 labour force located nearby in the townships of Supía and Marmato.

There are currently three rigs drilling at the Apollo target. Collective expects to release assay results from holes 15-25 at Apollo over the coming weeks and through year-end. The Company’s recently expanded drill program is ongoing with holes 26-28 currently bring drilled and holes 29-31 at the planning stage.
