Junior Mining Precious Metals Strike Point Gold

StrikePoint Reports 11.5 g/t Au and 69.4 g/t Ag over 2.0 metres in Channel Samples at Willoughby.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 16, 2021) – StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results from surface channel sampling as well as reconnaissance grab samples collected during the 2021 exploration program at the 100%-owned Willoughby gold-silver property, located east of the community of Stewart in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. The purpose of the channel samples is to provide quality surface assay data over the surface expression of mineralized zones that could potentially be used for a NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate for the property.

These results are from seven continuous series of channel samples in steep terrain at the Icefall Zone, collected by experienced climbing geologists and technicians using a hydraulic chisel, from well-exposed bedrock hosting disseminated to massive sulphides, primarily pyrite and pyrrhotite. The samples cover approximately 55 metres of strike and 80 metres of vertical relief along a steep exposure. These samples, along with pending results at other zones on the property, will provide representative assay data for surface expressions projected up-dip from previous and current drilling. Results are pending for channel sampling from the Edge and North zones at Willoughby. Highlights of the channel samples from the Icefall Zone include:

  • 2.94 g/t Au and 31.04 g/t Ag or 3.38 g/t AuEq over 15.0 metres, which includes 11.545 g/t Au and 69.4 g/t Ag or 12.53 g/t AuEq over 2.0 metres (WH21-CH004)
  • 3.21 g/t Au and 16.61 g/t Ag or 3.45 g/t AuEq over 12.0 metres, which includes 4.46 g/t Au over 5.0 metres and 31.23 g/t Ag or 4.82 g/t AuEq over 3.0 metres (WH21-CH007)
  • 1.83g/t Au and 32.62 g/t Ag 0r 2.30 g/t AuEq over 13.0 metres, which includes 8.68g/t Au and 265.0g/t Ag or 12.47 g/t AuEq over 1.0 metre (WH21-CH002)
  • 2.9 g/t Au and 21.42 g/t Ag or 3.21 g/t AuEq over 10.0 metres, which includes 15.45 g/t Au and 74.5g/t Ag or 16.51 g/t AuEq over 1.0 metre (WH21-CH001)

*AuEq calculated using a 70:1 silver to gold ratio.

StrikePoint’s CEO, Shawn Khunkhun, states, “These results provide excellent surface data for modelling of our multiple mineralized zones at Willoughby. Our objective during this year’s program at the Willoughby gold-silver and Porter silver properties was to significantly expand the gold-silver mineralization down-dip and along strike and to test new targets. We are pleased with the quality of work completed and expect the remainder of results before the end of 2021 or in January 2022.

2021 Willoughby Channel Sampling

Channel sampling at the Upper and Lower Icefall Zones confirmed continuous gold and silver mineralization along all seven channel sample lines. Due to the steep terrain, the channel sample locations are oriented at a variety of oblique angles to the orientation of the Icefall Zone and do not represent true widths. The gold-silver mineralization is hosted in semi-massive to replacement style sulphides, primarily pyrite and pyrrhotite with lesser sphalerite and galena within Jurassic volcanic rocks. Pervasive sericite alteration was consistently observed throughout all channel samples at Icefall, all of which returned intervals of gold and silver mineralization as displayed in Table 1. The 67 channel samples collected average 2.46 g/t Au and 23.28 g/t Ag and range between 0.041 to 15.45 g/t Au and 1.1 to 265.0 g/t Ag, respectively. Results are as follows:

Willoughby Project

The project occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometers 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, like and potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at Red Mountain. 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-kilometer strike-length mineralized trend.

QA/QC

Using a hydraulic chisel, an approximate 2 by 2-centimetre channel was sampled continuously along 1 metre sample stations. If the hydraulic chisel was incapable of retrieving a chip from a specific location, a hand chisel was used to assist with the chipping within the limits of the 1 metre station. Samples were placed directly into a marked polyurethane bag. Chip observation data was recorded and digitized in the field using MX Deposit.

Surface samples for the 2021 exploration program were labeled and shipped with chain of custody controls to the laboratory. The company implements a rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program, including the insertion of Standards, Blanks, and Duplicates at regular intervals in the sample stream to monitor laboratory performance.

Samples were submitted to ALS Laboratory facility located in North Vancouver, British Columbia, for preparation and analysis. The ALS facility is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for gold assays, and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria. The entire sample is crushed, split into representative sub-samples using a riffle splitter and subsequently, 250g is pulverized. Multi-element analyses were determined by ICP-AES for 33 elements following a 4-acid digestion process. Analysis for gold is by 30g fire assay with atomic absorption (AAS) finish. Samples that returned with gold assays greater than 10 g/t were re-analyzed using a 30g fire assay with a gravimetric finish.. Samples with silver assays higher than 100 g/t are re-analyzed using a fire assay with gravimetric finish.

Strikepoint Gold’s Step-out Drilling at Willoughby Intersects 10.24g/t Gold-Equivalent over 6.16 Meters

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 9, 2021) – StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the initial drill results from the 2021 exploration program at the 100%-owned Willoughby gold-silver property, located east of Stewart in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle.

Results have been received from the first of four areas drilled during the 2021 season targeting extensions to mineralization along strike identified during the 2020 drilling programGold-silver mineralization was encountered in all holes. Highlights include:

  • 7.34 g/t Au and 202.85 g/t Ag or 10.24 g/t AuEq over 6.16 meters in W21-109
  • 3.78 g/t Au and 10.45 g/t Ag or 3.93 g/t AuEq over 4.0 meters in W21-110
  • 4.18 g/t Au and 3.47 g/t Ag or 4.23 g/t AuEq over 7.0 meters in W21-110

High-grade gold-silver mineralization encountered in drill hole W21-109 is a step-out of approximately 25 meters down-dip from 2020 intercept W20-106 which intersected 10.04 g/t Au and 5.61 g/t Ag or 10.12 g/t AuEq over 7.72 meters within a broader interval of 4.19 g/t Au and 18.28 g/t Ag over 27.78 meters.

“Willoughby continues to deliver wide, high-grade intervals of gold-silver mineralization in multiple areas. We are building continuity of structurally-controlled and intrusive-related mineralization and are excited for further incoming results from the rest of the 2021 Willoughby program as well as drill results from our Porter Silver project,” said Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO of Strikepoint Gold.

During the 2021 program, 4,050 meters of core drilling in seventeen holes were completed at the Willoughby Property as well as extensive surface chip-channel sampling and mapping of well-exposed, gold-silver mineralization within disseminated to massive sulphides that were follow up to 2020 surface results and in-field observations. The objective of the program was to targets gaps between previously drilled high-grade zones at Willoughby as well as the Willow zone one-kilometer to the north that hosts analogous high-grade mineralization. Assays are currently pending for the remaining 13-holes, as well as all surface sampling results.

Drill holes W20-108 to W20-111 were collared from the same site, testing extensions of the mineralization identified during the 2020 drill program. Drill hole W21-109 intersected 7.34 g/t Au and 202.85 g/t Ag or 10.24 g/t AuEq over 6.16 meters and W21-110 intersected 2.48 g/t Au and 5.30 g/t Ag or 4.23 g/t AuEq over 4.0 meters and 4.18 g/t Au and 3.47 g/t Ag or 4.23 g/t AuEq over 7.0 meters. These holes are interpreted to occurs within the hanging wall of a shear structure with steep southwest dip associated with dominant sulphide mineralization including semi-massive to sheeted pyrite-galena-sphalerite-chalcopyrite. Holes W21-108 & W21-111 stayed in the footwall to the zone, however sheeted vein sets were observed at depth and are interpreted to indicate close proximity to the mineralized structure which is consistent with surface observation.

The causative, diorite intrusive rocks at Willoughby are considered comparable to, and potentially co-magmatic with, the Goldslide intrusive suite associated with mineralization at Ascot’s Red Mountain deposit, located seven kilometers west of the property. These intrusive sills are interpreted to have pooled gold bearing-sulphides in permissive Jurassic-aged volcanic rock package below the intrusion creating wide areas of disseminated gold-silver mineralization. This was encountered in the following intercepts: W21-108 1.24 g/t Au and 1.51 g/t Ag over 15-meters, W21-109 2.66 g/t Au and 13.18 g/t Ag over 4.7 meters, W21-110 1.60 g/t Au and 3.19 g/t Ag over 8.5 meters, and W21-111 0.86 g/t Au and 1.70 g/t Ag over 11.0 meters.

StrikePoint Gold Exploration Update: Drilling Ongoing at High-Grade Porter Silver and Willoughby Gold-Silver Properties

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 31, 2021) – StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an exploration update for ongoing exploration during the 2021 field season at its 100%-owned Porter Silver and Willoughby gold-silver projects located east of the mining town of Stewart in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. The Company also announces that Carol Li has resigned from the Board of Directors.

StrikePoint’s President and CEO, Shawn Khunkhun states, “The Golden Triangle is home to some of the largest and richest silver mines on the planet, with over 800 million oz’s discovered to date. This drill program at Porter gives our shareholders exposure to the largest, historic pure silver producers in the Stewart area. Additionally, we continue to drill at multiple, high-grade gold-silver targets at Willoughby, expanding our program with an additional 2,000 meters planned. Finally, I would like to acknowledge Carol’s contributions to the board and wish her success with future endeavours.”

Over 3,700 meters of drilling in 15 core holes have been completed to-date, primarily from the Willoughby Property. All assays are currently pending.

Porter Silver Project

The primary objective of drilling at the Porter Silver Project is to continue to step out from high-grade silver mineralization that was historically mined and direct shipped from multiple structures on the Property: the Prosperity/Porter Idaho and Silverado Mines. Drilling will include targeting extensions to the past-producing D and Blind veins, testing multiple, parallel structures in single drill holes.

The Porter Project host two historically producing, silver-rich vein systems: the Silverado and Prosperity/Porter Idaho. They are located over two kilometers apart, outcropping on opposite sides of Mount 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.

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. The mineralization consists of galena-tetrahedrite/tennantite-pyrite hosted in six parallel dipping shear zones, traced 200 meters on the surface and one kilometre down dip with widths between two and thirteen meters. Historic Company and government records document that high-grade silver ore was mined by the Premier Mining between 1929 and 1931 and produced 27,123 tonnes with recovered grades of 2,542 g/t silver (73.8 oz/ton Ag) and 1 g/t gold (yielding approximately 2.2 million ounces of silver). The ore was shipped to tidewater via an aerial tramway and direct shipped to smelters with no concentration required. These production records are historical in nature prior to NI43-101. StrikePoint has not independently verified the figures and they should not be relied upon.

Willoughby Gold-Silver Project

Due to visually encouraging mineralization at the Willoughby Project, StrikePoint has budgeted an additional 2,000 meters of core drilling, testing extensions to multiple high-grade targets. So far in 2021, drilling has targeted the Edge, Icefall, and Wilbie Zones as well as the new Sona-K zone, located 700 metes north of the ‘North Zone’. To-date, drilling as encountered visually encouraging structures and replacement-style mineralization with multiple phases of strong sulphide mineralization, primarily pyrite, pyrrhotite and sphalerite. Additionally, over 123 meters of channel sampling has been completed at Willoughby, including new areas that have been recently exposed by retreating glaciers.

Willoughby is located along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-staged Red Mountain Deposit owned by Ascot Resources. Strong, coarse-grained pyrite mineralization proximal to Goldslide porphyry at Willoughby that is visually similar to Red Mountain has been encountered in 2021 drilling.

The Willoughby Property is underlain by Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcano-sedimentary rocks that have been intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, similar to and potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at Red Mountain. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primary pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, native gold. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to-date over a one-kilometre strike-length mineralization trend.
