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.

Bravo’s Re-sampling Program Continues to Outperform Historic Grades at Luanga

VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 28, 2022 /CNW/ – Bravo Mining Corp. (TSXV: BRVO) (OTCQX: BRVMF) (“Bravo” or the “Company“) today announced that it has received assay results from the analysis of re-sampled historic drill core from an additional eight historical diamond drill holes (“DDH”) from its Luanga (palladium + platinum + rhodium + gold +nickel) project (“Luanga” or “Luanga PGM+Au+Ni“), located in the Carajás Mineral Province, state of Pará, Brazil.

“Assay results have been received from a total of 42 re-sampled historic drill holes to date, with the previously noted positive trend of higher PGM+Au grades continuing to be observed in most intercepts as compared to historical intercepts,” said Luis Azevedo, Chairman and CEO of Bravo. “It is also encouraging that nickel sulphide grades are very comparable to the historical total nickel results, suggesting that very little nickel is tied up in silicates in the fresh rock. All these observations, combined with the first-time assaying for rhodium in many intercepts, are supportive as we work to validate Luanga’s historical mineral resource estimate of 142Mt @ 1.24 g/t Pd+Pt+Au and 0.11% Ni” (see Page 5 of this news release for important information in respect of the Historical Estimate).

Highlights

  • Results from the ongoing re-sampling of historic drill core continue to show a tendency to exceed the tenor of historic intercept grades, with mineralized thicknesses directly comparable to the thicknesses reported for historic intercepts.
  • Highlights of Bravo’s most recent re-sampling results are tabulated below, with details including comparisons to historic intercepts:

** = Bravo’s nickel grades are sulphide nickel, and do not include non-recoverable silicate nickel, unlike historic total nickel assays.
  • 119 drill holes (including 8 metallurgical drill holes) have been completed so far in 2022, for a total of 20,409 metres (or 80% of the Phase 1 Drill Program). Currently, samples from 46 drill holes are at the assay laboratory pending results, and results from 34 drill holes have been released to date.
  • 22,318 samples have been submitted for assay in 2022, including 3,353 samples from re-sampling of historic drill core.
  • 6 drill rigs operating onsite.

Luanga Re-Sampling Program and Phase 1 Drilling Progress

A comparison of the historic intercepts with the Bravo assay results from re-sampled core is tabulated below, with a plan showing the re-sampled hole locations. A drill section is provided below, showing results for PPT-LUAN-112. Bravo’s assay results from re-sampled core continue to closely correlate to the historic intercepts in thicknesses, while the previously observed trend of intercepts frequently exceeding the tenor of historic grades continues. This is most likely related to improved assay methods for PGMs versus those available over 20 years ago, and only sporadic rhodium assaying historically.

The Phase 1 diamond drill program continues as planned at Luanga. Six drill rigs are on site, with drilling progressing in various locations along the entire 8.1km strike length of the known Luanga mineralized envelope. To date, 114 drill holes have been completed, for a total of 19,384 metres (or 76%) of the planned 25,500 metre Phase 1 drill program.

About Bravo Mining Corp.

Bravo is a Canada and Brazil-based mineral exploration and development company focused on advancing its Luanga PGM + Au + Ni Project in the world-class Carajás Mineral Province of Brazil.

The Luanga Project benefits from being in a location close to operating mines, with excellent access and proximity to existing infrastructure, including road, rail and clean and renewable hydro grid power. The project area was previously de-forested for agricultural grazing land. Bravo’s current Environmental, Social and Governance activities includes replanting trees in the project area, hiring and contracting locally, engagement with local communities, and ensuring protection of the environment during its exploration activities.

Technical Disclosure

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Simon Mottram, F.AusIMM (Fellow Australia Institute of Mining and Metallurgy), President of Bravo Mining Corp. who serves as the Company’s “qualified person”, as defined in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101“). Mr. Mottram has verified the technical data and opinions contained in this news release.

Historical Resource Estimate

This press release includes a historical resource estimate for the Luanga Project (the “Historical Estimate“) prepared internally by prior owners, VALE SA, in 2017 and contained in a report by  Mansur E.T., Ferreira Filho C.F., Oliveira D.P.L. entitled “The Luanga deposit, Carajás Mineral Province, Brazil: Different styles of PGE mineralization hosted in a medium-size layered intrusion.” and published in Ore Geology Reviews (Volume 118, March 2020, 103340). A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves under National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and Bravo is not treating the Historical Estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Bravo cautions that the Historical Estimate was not prepared in accordance with NI 43-101. There can be no certainty, following further evaluation and/or exploration work, that the Historical Estimate can be upgraded or verified as mineral resources or mineral reserves in accordance with NI 43-101. Further, the assays values used to calculate the nickel content in the Historical Estimate are total nickel, and thus contain both sulphide nickel (potentially recoverable) and silicate nickel (unrecoverable by conventional methods). Bravo is not aware whether the nickel content in the Historical Estimate has been modified to account for this or not. In addition, no breakdown of the assay results for the individual metals contributing to this Historical Estimate has been published and the Historical Estimate was not classified in accordance with the mineral resource categories set out in NI 43-101. Nevertheless, Bravo considers the Historical Estimate to be relevant to the reader’s understanding of the status of the Project and its future potential.

Schedule 2: Assay Methodologies and QAQC

Samples followed chain of custody between collection, processing and delivery to the ALS laboratory in Parauapebas, state of Pará, Brazil. The drill core was delivered to the core shack at Bravo’s Luanga site facilities and processed by geologists who inserted certified reference materials, blanks and duplicates into the sampling sequence. Drill core was quarter cut and placed in secured polyurethane bags, then in security-sealed sacks before being delivered directly from the Luanga site facilities to the Parauapebas ALS laboratory by Bravo staff. Additional information about the methodology can be found on the respective ALS or SGS global websites (ALSSGS) in their analytical guides. Information regarding preparation and analysis of historic drill core is also presented in the table below, where the information is known.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (“QAQC“) is maintained internally at the lab through rigorous use of internal certified reference materials, blanks, and duplicates. An additional QAQC program is administered by Bravo using certified reference materials, duplicate samples and blank samples that are blindly inserted into the sample batch. If a QAQC sample returns an unacceptable value an investigation into the results is triggered and when deemed necessary, the samples that were tested in the batch with the failed QAQC sample are re-tested.

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 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.

Granite Creek Copper Ltd., Monday, November 21, 2022, Press release picture

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.

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.

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.

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.
