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.

TORONTO, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from seven drill holes, including the first hole drilled at the Golden Glove Target in the south end of its 100% owned Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre drill program at Kingsway.

Hole K-22-150 intersected 6.22 g/t Au over 4 metres that included 10.31 g/t Au over 2m at a vertical depth of 246 metres. This intersection is located approximately 160 m south of the Golden Glove discovery outcrop where six grab samples, three of which contained visible gold, assayed between 2.99 g/t and 338.1 g/t Au (see news release dated September 21, 2021). This intersection at Golden Glove is the fourth of four targets drilled by LabGold to return significant gold intercepts.

While there are many similarities between the mineralization observed at Golden Glove and that at Big Vein, a significant difference is that while Big Vein occurs on the west side of the Appleton Fault Zone, Golden Glove is situated on the East Side. This is the first drilling on the east side of the fault at the Kingsway Property.https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Labrador%253BFault_(geology)%253BGold%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a0770000002m0AbAAI%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522globenewswire.com%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%252256728853-316a-31bc-a98d-be02627be93e%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

Six holes drilled at the Pristine target intersected near surface gold mineralization over significant widths in the Doyle Zone, including 1.86 g/t Au over 8m in hole K-22-144 and 1.75 g/t over 20.2m that included 2.76 g/t Au over 6.2m in Hole K-22-139.

“We are very pleased with the results from the first hole drilled at Golden Glove especially considering that the intersection is approximately 160m south of the discovery outcrop. This indicates excellent potential for the area between this hole and the outcrop and we are certainly looking forward to the results from the remaining five holes drilled there to date,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of LabGold. “The continued near surface gold intercepts extending the strike length of the Doyle Zone are nice to see especially those with wider intersections. We are encouraged by the successful drilling of our four initial targets, all of which have delivered significant gold mineralization. We will continue to test the new targets developed along the Appleton Fault Zone through the summer, starting with the CSAMT target approximately eight kilometres northeast of Big Vein.”

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.

In early 2020, Labrador Gold acquired the option to earn a 100% interest in the 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 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $28 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Florence Lake greenstone belts 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 159,199,026 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Mountain Province Diamonds Announces Successful Exploration Update for Kennady North

TORONTO and NEW YORK, May 17, 2022 /CNW/ – Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. (“Mountain Province”, the “Company”) (TSX: MPVD) (OTC: MPVD) today announces interim exploration results for its 100%-held Kennady North Project. The Kennady North Project consists of over 107,000 hectares of claims and leases that completely surround the Gahcho Kué Diamond Mine. The 2022 exploration program is focussed on finding new kimberlites based on a detailed analysis of historical technical information including ground and airborne geophysics, kimberlite indicator minerals, and geological mapping. Approximately 3,000 of the ongoing 6,000 meter winter drill program have been completed.

Exploration Highlights for the Winter Program

  • Kimberlite intersected in 16 of 20 drill holes
  • 3 of 4 target areas have returned Kimberlite Intersections
  • Winter geophysics completed

Mark Wall, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented:

We began 2022 with a plan to launch an aggressive winter exploration campaign over Kennady North, and we have achieved that plan. We have discovered kimberlite in three of four targets tested to date, and completed all of our scheduled airborne and ground geophysics. In the final weeks of our winter program, we will continue to drill-test as many priority anomalies as feasible with the intent to discover more kimberlite and add value to the Kennady North Project. As a pure Canadian diamond producer and explorer, we see this as an important time to aggressively explore for new Canadian diamond production”

Of the sixteen targets identified four have been tested by drilling so far. Drilling will continue through the rest of the winter 2022 program which is expected to culminate at the end of May. Summer exploration will start in Q3 with emphasis on follow-up sampling of indicator mineral results generated from the 2021 till sampling program, which are expected to be complete by the end of Q3. A review of all winter 2022 ground geophysical data continues through Q2 with the intent to drill areas of interest (“AOI”) with land-based anomalies in the summer program.

To date, 2,935 meters from 20 drillholes have been collected from the North Anomaly, South Anomaly, KS Anomaly and G6 Anomaly. These anomalies were defined using ARRT (a high-resolution ground resistivity system developed by Aurora Geoscience Ltd., Yellowknife), and by ground gravity. Both systems recognize the physical contrast between competent country rock and country rock adjacent to kimberlite that is broken and altered from emplacement of the kimberlite. Locations for these anomalies relative to the Kelvin and Faraday kimberlites are shown in the first set of images.

Locations for the anomalies relative to the Kelvin and Faraday kimberlites (CNW Group/Mountain Province Diamonds Inc.)
Locations for the anomalies relative to the Kelvin and Faraday kimberlites (CNW Group/Mountain Province Diamonds Inc.)

Seven drillholes completed at the North Anomaly have identified depth-extensive zones of highly altered country rock intermixed with intersects of hypabyssal kimberlite (‘HK’) ranging from 0.03 to 6.93 meters in thickness (average thickness 1.54m). Suspected volcaniclastic kimberlite (‘VK’) has been intersected in three drillholes and ranges from 0.16 to 2.13 meters in thickness (average 0.95m), with 3D modeling of the drilling indicating lateral continuity for the VK. For Kelvin and Faraday kimberlites at Kennady North, VK comprises the greatest volume and its presence in the exploration drilling is considered a good indication for volume potential at the North Anomaly.

At the South Anomaly all five drillholes have HK present with thicknesses ranging from 0.68 to 6.96 meters (average 3.23m). Country rock breccia consisting of highly comminuted gneiss mixed with kimberlite has also been observed, and is indicative of volume potential for the South Anomaly.

Four of six drillholes at the KS anomaly intersected HK kimberlite ranging from 0.22 to 1.49 meters in thickness. The present interpretation for the KS anomaly is that the system is lacking the kimberlitic fluids necessary to break up country rock and provide volume for VK to develop. A table of drill results for the North, South and KS Anomaly is provided below.

The target AOI were selected from recently-compiled studies of glacial geology and kimberlite indicator mineral (KIM) dispersions over the project area. Additional target AOI were selected after a review of historical geophysical data for Kennady North. These datasets were reviewed during several in-house workshops held in late 2021 and early 2022, with final ranking of sixteen AOI completed in a joint workshop held with De Beers in February 2022. The sixteen AOI were scheduled for ARRT and ground gravity surveys during the winter program, with a total of 188.8 line-km of ARRT and 3,139 gravity stations completed over the targets. A map image of the AOI that received ground geophysics for drill-targeting is shown in the third image.

The G6 anomaly is the result of a 1997 DIGHEM airborne survey that delineated the Kelvin, Faraday and Gahcho Kué kimberlites. Recent drilling over follow-up coincident ARRT and ground gravity anomalies encountered no kimberlite. Assessment of the drill data is underway.

In addition to the ground geophysical surveys, a small airborne magnetic/electromagnetic survey was conducted over an unsurveyed area located one kilometer southeast of Gahcho Kué. A total of 1,291 line-km of data were collected over the area.

In 2021 over 600 till samples were collected over the project area, including the recently staked Kennady East claims. Preliminary results for 47 samples confirm the presence of pyrope, chromite and picroilmenite in esker samples from the southern portion of the Kennady East claims. The distribution of 2021 till samples and outline of the 2022 airborne geophysics program are shown in the fourth and final image.

Goldshore Resources Drills 128.3m Grading 1.1 g/t Au from the Moss Lake Deposit Additional Parallel Zone Returned 16.0m at 5.31 g/t Au with Visible Gold Also Discovered

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 5, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results in hole MQD-22-014 from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada. Drilling is aiming to better define and expand high-grade structural zones within the Moss Lake deposit to improve the overall grade and volume beyond that of the historic mineral resource.

Highlights:

  • Broad zone of high-grade mineralization confirming the tenor of mineralization modeled in the QES Zone with best intercepts of:
  • 128.3m at 1.05 g/t Au from 121.3m, including
    • 40.6m at 1.99 g/t Au from 139.4m,
    • 3.6m at 1.80 g/t Au from 199.0m, and
    • 22.0m at 1.25 g/t Au from 227.0m.
  • New high grade gold mineralization open in all directions with visible gold intersected in a northern parallel structure. This northern structure is interpreted to be the same parallel structure intersected over 100 metres further to the east (see press release dated January 28, 2022). In addition, the identification of VG in this northern structure could provide elevated milling recoveries in any future operation. The drilling returned:
  • 16.0m at 5.31 g/t Au from 477.0m, including
    • 5.25m at 15.8 g/t Au from 477.75m
  • Expanding Drill Capacity through the engagement of two additional drill contractors who are mobilizing three rigs to site in the coming week. This will enable Goldshore to increase the drilling rate at the Moss Lake gold deposit and expand the drill program to the Coldstream area to evaluate the gold deposit at East Coldstream and copper-gold-cobalt mineralization at North Coldstream.

Brett Richards, President and Chief Executive Officer of Goldshore, commented: “The drilling intercept of 128.3m at 1.05 g/t Au reaffirms our view that the Moss Lake gold project contains a significant volume of +1 g/t Au mineralization that can underpin a meaningful, economic gold deposit. The fact that we are continuing to intersect gold mineralization outside of the volume modelled in 2013 also affirms our belief that the deposit is significantly larger than previously interpreted. Separately, we are pleased to be bringing in additional drill contractors that will enable us to increase our drilling rate at Moss Lake while commencing drilling at Coldstream.”

Technical Overview

Figure 1 and Table 1 summarize the significant intercepts in MQD-22-014. Figure 2 shows the visible gold seen at 478.1 meters depth, which corresponds to the high-grade parallel structure. Figure 3 and Table 2 show the drill hole location.

MQD-22-014 was drilled 120 meters west of MQD-21-009 (see press release dated January 28, 2022) at a -45° dip and 335° azimuth to test the 2013 resource model and twin the historic hole 90-203.

The reported significant intercept of 128.3m at 1.05 g/t Au from 121.3m occurs within a broader zone of strongly silica-sericite-chlorite±carbonate altered diorite that assays 200.75m at 0.77 g/t Au from 14m above a 0.3 g/t Au cutoff. The better grade segments (e.g., 40.6m at 1.99 g/t Au from 139.4m) are characterized by intense foliation and brecciation, which reflect numerous sigmoidal shear zones that provide the plumbing for the hydrothermal system.

These results are similar to those intersected in the historic hole, which returned 136.0m at 1.09 g/t Au from 137.0m.

Importantly, we continue to intersect parallel structures that were not previously reported. Visible gold was intersected within a 1.45-meter-wide quartz-pyrite-chalcopyrite vein from 477.75-479.20m, which averages 54.1 g/t Au. This occurs within a biotite-altered diorite that returned 16.0m at 5.31 g/t Au from 477.0m.

Peter Flindell, VP Exploration, commented: “These drilling results confirm the historic drill results and help us to understand the non-linear distribution of high grades that will enable us to model the higher-grade gold resource more accurately later in the year. Our relogging work and surveying of historic drill collars will also allow us to incorporate many of the historic drillholes, which will reduce the number of holes we need to drill in this campaign. Just as we are intersecting new parallel zones of mineralization that will expand the Mineral Resource, we are also identifying mineralization in the historic holes that was previously unsampled, thereby adding assay data to our database.”

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 strategic shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 22% 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.

Moss Lake hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment was completed on Moss Lake in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold1. A historical mineral resource estimate was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc2,3. In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

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.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the above referenced “historical mineral resource” estimates are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current resources and Goldshore is not treating the historical estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the historical estimate on the Moss Lake Gold Project 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.

TORONTO, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the continued extension of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest with an intersection of 54.17 g/t Au over 0.95m as well as the intersection of near surface gold mineralization from initial diamond drilling of the Pristine target at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre drill program at Kingsway.

At Big Vein, the intercept of 54.17g/t Au over 0.95m in hole K-22-122 contains visible gold and is the furthest intersection of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest drilled to date. This extends the strike length of the zone to 320m and it remains open in this direction. Hole K-22-116 targeted the HTC zone and intersected 14.67 g/t over a 1m interval that also contained visible gold.

At the Pristine target the first six holes all intersected significant near surface gold mineralization, including hole K-21-109 that assayed 3.55 g/t Au over 2.33m from 17.15m that contained visible gold and hole K-21-100 that intersected 3.89 g/t Au over 3m from 53m downhole.

The initial assays from the Pristine target, located approximately 800m northeast of Big Vein along the Appleton Fault Zone, are very similar to the first reported holes from Big Vein that assayed 1.11 g/t Au over 5.50m, 5.0 g/t Au over 0.9m and 2.26 g/t Au over 7.0m in Hole K-21-01 and 1.72 g/t Au over 3.0min Hole K-21-02 (see news release dated May 10, 2021).

The stratigraphy encountered is also very similar to Big Vein, with the mineralized Doyle Zone defined by a network of shear veining that is associated with a highly fractured sandstone in fault contact with a deformed black graphitic shale.

“We are very pleased with the initial results from the Pristine target which proves our interpretation of the existence of a gold occurrence not too far up ice from the pristine gold grains found in till. Pristine is the third of three targets tested to date to show significant near surface gold assays, a result of our systematic exploration strategy at Kingsway and the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the LabGold. “We have named the mineralized zone at Pristine the Doyle Zone after our friend and strong supporter James Doyle, who passed away suddenly, and much too early, in late 2020. James helped and advised us in every financing since the start of Labrador Gold in 2017, and gave us support in the market, often when no-one else was interested. James would have loved witnessing all the exploration activity in central Newfoundland over the last two years and would have been working the telephones daily. We will endeavour to ensure that the Doyle Zone lives up to the big personality of its namesake.”

Pristine Target and Appleton Fault Zone

The visible gold found in hole K-21-109 drilled into the Doyle Zone is the third occurrence of visible gold found, after Big Vein and Golden Glove, along the Appleton Fault Zone. The Doyle Zone is the furthest northeast, approximately 4.5km from Golden Glove which lies close to the southern property boundary. The Doyle Zone lies to the east of a fault with a major damage zone approximately 30m wide which may represent the expression of the Appleton Fault Zone in this area. Further work is necessary to determine if this is, in fact, the the case or if it is a major splay of the Appleton Fault Zone. In either case it is a significant structure associated with gold mineralization in the Doyle Zone.

The most detailed exploration along the Appleton Fault Zone to date has been over an approximately 2km section from just southwest of Big Vein to the Pristine target, leaving the remaining 10km length of the fault zone relatively underexplored. This will be a major focus of LabGold’s upcoming field program.

QA/QC

True widths of the reported intersections have yet to be calculated. Assays are uncut. Samples of HQ split core are securely stored prior to shipping to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples are routinely analyzed for gold by standard 30g fire assay with atomic absorption finish as well as by ICP-OES for an additional 34 elements. Samples containing visible gold are assayed by metallic screen/fire assay, as are any samples with fire assay results greater than 1g/t Au. The company submits blanks and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

Qualified Person

Roger Moss, PhD., P.Geo., President and CEO of LabGold, a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101, has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this release.

The Company gratefully acknowledges the Newfoundland and Labrador Ministry of Natural Resources’ Junior Exploration Assistance (JEA) Program for its financial support for exploration of the Kingsway property.

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.

In early 2020, Labrador Gold acquired the option to earn a 100% interest in the 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 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $28 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Florence Lake greenstone belts 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 156,439,526 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.
