Riverside Resources Receives US$2,500,000 in Cash and Retains 2% NSR Royalty for the Sale of the Tajitos Gold Project to Fresnillo PLC

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2022) – Riverside Resources Inc. (TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) (“Riverside” or the “Company”), is pleased to report it has signed a definitive sale and royalty agreement with Minera Fresnillo, S.A. de C.V. (“Fresnillo”) a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresnillo PLC for the sale of Riverside’s Tajitos Gold Project (“Tajitos”) located in Sonora, Mexico. Riverside will receive a US$2,500,000 cash payment and retain a 2.0% NSR (“Royalty”).

The Tajitos Gold Project is located less than 30 kilometers from Fresnillo’s Noche Buena mining operations. Riverside’s Tajitos Gold Project includes the Tejo and Tajitos mineral concessions covering 45 km² of prospective ground next to Fresnillo’s property (also named Tajitos).

Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated: “This transaction adds another quality NSR to our growing royalty portfolio and brings our cash position to more than C$8,000,000, which puts us in a great position to grow our business during 2023-2024. We are pleased to deliver another deal with a high caliber international mining company, which is a testament to the quality of projects our team has generated and Riverside maintains in our property portfolio.”

Transaction Details:

Riverside will receive a payment of US$2,500,000 from Fresnillo and retain a 2.0% NSR. Fresnillo will have, for a four-year term, the option to buy back half of the 2.0% NSR for a payment of US$1.5M. If enacted, then Fresnillo would have an additional three years to buy back the remining 1% NSR for another US$1.5M. If Fresnillo does not exercise its first buy back option during the first four-year term, the Royalty will no longer be subject to any buy back provisions. The NSR covers the entire Riverside land package and a full NSR Agreement has been agreed upon and included in the signed contract between the companies. If Fresnillo wishes to reduce mineral claims, then the Company has the first right to retain those mineral tenures before they are dropped.

Provenance Conducts New Exploration at Its Eldorado Property as It Seeks to Expand Target Areas

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2022) – Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the “Company” or “Provenance“) is pleased to announce it has recently completed rock chip sampling and other field work at its Eldorado property in Eastern Oregon. Sampling focused on areas that had exposures of available rock for sampling in areas of significant soil cover. In addition, the Company is also in the process of reviewing, compiling and evaluating all previous historic sampling programs at Eldorado including soil sampling, rock chip sampling, trench sampling and drill hole sampling.

The Eldorado area has been the focus of considerable historic placer mining and modern era exploration by at least five mining companies. All this activity is extensive, and evidence of both placer mining and drilling / trenching remains in every corner of the property. The attached Figure below shows a seamed 1998 aerial photograph over recent satellite imagery which validates the considerable work that has been done to date on the property.

The Company’s current field work has focused on collecting 38 rock outcrop samples to assess gold and silver values over a broad area to both confirm anomalies previously identified by past operators and to give the Company its own data base of surface sampling results. The new sampling along with integration of historic rock chip assays, trenching assays and soil auger assays should help define the full potential of the project. This work should better define the project’s footprint and will provide valuable guidance in planning future drill programs once fully permitted.

The Company has in its possession, a large amount of historic assay information that was obtained from several of the past operators, which includes rock chip samples, 43 trenches and 1,081 auger soil samples. These samples, along with results from our current sampling and “top of bedrock” assay samples from the drill holes, will provide a significant gold anomaly map to be used for future drilling.

Cross-section studies of the historic drill holes have identified areas within the historically identified gold system that were missed by the historic drilling. Confirmation drilling of these areas could add mineralized tonnage to the overall gold inventory. Some of the outcrop sampling is focusing on these untested areas.

Additionally, rock outcrops are not abundant on the property, which is mostly covered by soil. The outcrops that have been sampled are all strongly altered. Provenance believes these exposures may represent extensions of the mineral system and sampling these outcrops should verify that interpretation.

The Company expects assay results from this program in the coming weeks and completion of the full assay compilation will be released to the public as it becomes available.

Rauno Perttu, Provenance Chairman said, “I look forward to drilling to confirm the historic work, and also to begin to expand the size and likely the grade of the system. With in-fill drilling and deeper drilling, I believe we can significantly increase the magnitude of the system.”

“Eldorado already holds a significant historical inventory of gold as calculated by a reputable engineering firm in 1990,” stated Steve Craig, project manager. “We believe we will be ready to drill with target confidence in 2023 following our extensive compilation and evaluation of all of the historic data that the Company has in its possession.”

Dolly Varden Silver Junior Mining Precious Metals

Dolly Varden Silver Intersects 27.44 g/t Au and 463 g/t Ag over 9.16m, Including 75.13 g/t Au and 2,337 g/t Ag over 1.77m at Homestake Ridge

Dolly Varden Silver, Proven and Probable

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 29, 2022) – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTCQX: DOLLF) (the “Company” or “Dolly Varden“) is pleased to announce drill results from the 100%-owned Homestake Ridge property in BC’s Golden Triangle. The objective of drilling during 2022 at the Homestake Main and Homestake Silver deposits was to expanded multiple, subparallel mineralized zones and to upgrade Inferred Resources.

Highlights include (intervals shown are core length):

  • HR22-314: 4.27 g/t Au and 64 g/t Ag (5.10 g/t AuEq*) over 16.06 meters including 18.76 g/t Au and 193 g/t Ag (21.49 g/t AuEq*) over 3.08 meters
  • HR22-322: 6.47 g/t Au and 27 g/t Ag (5.83 g/t AuEq*) over 6.00 meters
  • HR22-325: 7.18g/t Au and 30 g/t Ag, 0.49% Cu (8.26 g/t AuEq*) over 10.00 meters including 20.20 g/t Au and 68 g/t Ag (21.13 g/t AuEq*) over 1.47 meters
  • HR22-328: 27.44 g/t Au and 463 g/t Ag (33.34 g/t AuEq*) over 9.16 meters including 0.50 meters 216.00 g/t Au and 113 g/t Ag, 0.48% Cu (218.06 AuEq*) over 0.50 meters
  • HR22-330: 5.68 g/t Au and 147 g/t Ag (7.48 g/t AuEq*) over 15.00 meters, including 54.10 g/t Au, 4,890 g/t Ag and 0.11% Cu (113.25 g/t AuEq*) over 0.39 meters
  • HR22-337: 3.79 g/t Au and 2 g/t Ag (3.84 g/t AuEq*) over 21.00 meters including 11.15 g/t Au and 5.00 g/t Ag (11.22 AuEq*) over 2.00 meters
  • HR22-339: 14.56 g/t Au and 4.00 g/t Ag (14.63 g/t AuEq*) over 2.50 meters

“Our 2022 drill program has truly been exceptional. The recently acquired Homestake Ridge Deposit has delivered more high-grade gold and silver values, commonly with strong copper mineralization. These intercepts demonstrate strong continuity of mineralization over wide intervals, similar to the recently announced high-grade results at the Wolf and Kitsol Deposits, located six kilometers to the south. We eagerly anticipate additional assays from all of Dolly Varden’s Deposits, as well as new exploration targets drilled during the 2022 program,” said Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO.

These results are primarily infill drilling from areas of Current Inferred Mineral Resources and suggest that the higher-grade gold-silver lenses may be continuous over more extensive areas than previously interpreted. In addition, the drilling has generated new targets down-dip the Homestake Main deposit along the projected plunge of the higher grade shoots that are wide open for expansion. Oriented core was used on all drill holes on the project and this detailed structural data is also being integrated in to the geological model to further increase confidence. Additional assays from the Homestake Main and Silver Deposits are pending

Complete Assay results for the first batch of drilling results at Homestake Main are in Table 1.

The Homestake Ridge deposits are interpreted as structurally-controlled, multi-phase epithermal vein and breccia system hosted in Jurassic aged Hazelton Volcanic rocks. Mineralization consists of pyrite and chalcopyrite in a breccia matrix within a silica breccia vein system (see Figure 2). The northwest orientation of the main Homestake structural trend appears to have numerous subparallel internal structures that are interpreted to form the controls for higher grade gold shoots within a broader low grade zone at the Homestake Main deposit. The main structural corridor dips steeply to the northeast (see Figure 3 and 4).

Collective Mining Significantly Expands the Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo and Drills Near Surface High-Grade Mineralization Including 168.6 Metres at 2.91 g/t Gold Equivalent

  • Drill hole APC-17, a significant step-out hole to the north, intersected two zones of mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target. The shallow zone, which was intersected directly below where the Main Breccia daylights at surface cut the following interval:
  • The second zone encountered in hole APC-17 cut the longest intercept of continuous mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery drilled to date with results as follows:
  • Drill hole APC-17, which was terminated at 912.8 metres due to rig capacity, bottomed in strong mineralization with the final 2.75 metres averaged 1.56 g/t gold, 9 g/t silver and 0.03% copper.
  • Drill hole APC-18 intersected near surface and high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization approximately 300 metres to the north of the near surface intercept in APC-17. The mineralized breccia in this zone is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of carbonate, base metal veins with assay results as follows:
  • With the result of step out hole APC-17 and recently announced visuals from step out hole APC-22, the Main Breccia discovery now measures up to 385 metres along strike by 350 metres in width (previously 190 metres) and has been extended down to a vertical depth of 825 metres below surface (previously 500 metres). The discovery remains wide open for expansion and further step-out holes are currently being designed.
  • Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with holes APC-19 through APC-26 completed and holes APC-27 through APC-29 underway.  Additional assay results are anticipated in the near term.

TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2022 /CNW/ –  Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from four additional holes drilled at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) within the Company’s Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. The Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia target. As part of its fully funded 23,000 metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.

“The intersection of high-grade and shallow mineralization at Apollo demonstrates the excellent metal endowment of the Main Breccia and most importantly, the dimensions of the system continue to expand and clearly point to the fact that we are dealing with a large-scale discovery. It is truly remarkable to drill a 912-metre-long hole that bottoms in mineralization. Finally, the shallow, higher grade intercepts encountered in APC-17 and APC-18 are more than 300 metres apart and confirms that the southern portion of the deposit is where the system comes to surface. As a result, we are about to start construction of a new drill pad located between the two shallow intercepts in order to start defining the shallow portion of the Main Breccia mineralized system,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1–3)

Nineteen diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and a further eleven holes are outstanding. The Company recently completed four drill holes; one northerly directed, step out hole (APC-17), to test for mineralized extensions to the Main Breccia discovery, a second shallow hole drilled southwesterly to define extensions of newly discovered mineralized breccia outcrops located in the southern portion of the deposit and two fringe holes drilled at shallow angles to the west of the Main Breccia discovery.

Drill hole APC-17 was drilled approximately due north to a maximum depth of 912.60 metres. The hole intersected three mineralized zones: 72.3 metres of mineralization beginning at 118.20 metres down hole (100m vertical), 11.65 metres of mineralized breccia from 252.6 metres (220m vertical) and another 547.65 metres of mineralization from 365.15 metres down hole (330m vertical) to the end of the hole at 912.80m (825m vertical).  The hole terminated while still in mineralized breccia due to limitations of the drill rig. Total cumulative mineralization in this diamond drill hole was 628.3 metres and is the most mineralization drilled in a single hole to date into the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. The shallow intercept is hosted within angular porphyry related breccia containing chalcopyrite (1-2%) with pyrite and pyrrhotite and is located directly beneath recently discovered mineralization outcropping at surface. The deeper and longer intercept is also hosted within angular porphyry related breccia with the matrix filled with pyrite, some chalcopyrite and overprinting carbonate base metal veins (“CBM”)The following results are highlighted:

  • 72.3 metres @ 2.57 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.00 g/t gold, 28 g/t silver and 0.63% copper (100 metres vertical).
  • 11.65 metres @ 1.88 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.80 g/t gold, 4 g/t silver and 0.05% copper (220m vertical).
  • 547.65 metres @ 1.03 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.76 g/t gold, 14 g/t silver and 0.04% copper (330m vertical).

Drill hole APC-18 was drilled in a southwest direction and intersected shallow, copper-silver-gold mineralization from 136.05 metres to 304.65 metres with the hole terminating at a final depth of 499.05 metres. The mineralized breccia contains a matrix of chalcopyrite and pyrite is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of CBM veins hosting sphalerite and galena. The hole was drilled below outcrops of breccia mineralization in the south-central portion of the deposit with assay results as follows:

  • 168.6 metres @ 2.91 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.98 g/t gold, 69 g/t silver and 0.5% copper (85 metres vertical).

With the result of APC-17 and recently announced visuals from APC-22, the potential total volume of rock hosting the Main Breccia discovery within it has approximately tripled in size with the dimensions now measuring 385 metres along strike by 350 metres width by 825 metres depth versus prior dimensions of 385 metres x 190 metres x 500 metres. The discovery remains wide open for expansion and further step-out holes are currently being designed.

Holes APC-15 and APC-16 were drilled at shallow angles on the western periphery of the main breccia body. APC-15 was drilled to the northwest and intersected mineralized crackle breccia returning 56.05 metres @ 0.57 g/t gold equivalent from 68.6 metres (55 metres vertical). This is a new mineralized area outside of the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. APC-16 was also drilled outside the Main Breccia discovery to the southwest and intersected 500 parts per million copper in crackle breccia from 200 metres and until the end of the hole at 303.35 metres. The Company believes that both APC-15 and APC-16 may have drilled over the top of the Main Breccia discovery in these locations.

Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with additional assay results anticipated in the near term.

The Apollo target area, as defined to date by surface mapping, rock sampling and copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry, covers an 800 metres X 700 metres area. The Apollo target area hosts the Company’s new Main Breccia discovery plus a vein system located above and on the eastern flank of the Main Breccia discovery and the Northern Breccia discovery located 250 metres to the north of the Main Breccia. Multiple additional untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets have been generated and will be drilled in due course. The overall Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Line 1500S, designed to test the gap area between zones 2000 and 147 (the “Gap Zone”), was successful in identifying a significant anomaly that is offset to the west from both zones. 3D modeling of historic drilling shows that this target has not been drill tested and could represent a southern extension of the 147 zone. The Gap Zone Target is a top candidate for additional near-deposit exploration (See figure 4). Additionally, a new, deeper target area that appears on this line and extends to line 1700S has been identified as the 58 Target.

Line 1700S, located 200m south of Line 1500S, shows the probable Gap Zone Target continuing southwards towards Zone 2000 as well as the newly identified 58 Target. Additionally, a shallow anomaly east of the proposed pit is identified as a possible continuation of Zone 4 proximal to the 147 pit.

Line 3300S, the southern most line completed in this survey highlights the potentiality of the area underneath the proposed 1213 pit. Additionally, an anomaly on the western portion of the line has been identified as 1213 west target for further follow up. With the current pit design bottoming out at 180 meters there remains significant room to grow the resource in this area. Additional lines on 200m spacing over the 1213 area are planned for subsequent geophysical campaigns to further define the zone.

The Offering remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company issued an aggregate of 1,933,273 flow-through shares (“FT shares”) at a price of $0.11 per share, to raise proceeds of $212,660.03 to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses (“CEE”) under the Income Tax Act (Canada). The Company raised a further $193,799.93 through the issuance of 2,583,999 non flow-through units at a price of $0.075 with each unit consisting of one common share of the Company and one warrant (a “Warrant”), with each Warrant allowing the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share for twenty-four months from the Closing Date of the Offering.

All shares issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from issuance in accordance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any U.S. state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons, absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. The Offering remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company has agreed to pay finders’ fees totalling of $13,259 in cash or shares on a portion of the Private Placement and to issue 127,042 finder warrants. Each finder warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing.

The Offering constitutes a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), as insiders of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 600,001 units for proceeds of $48,500.08. The Company relied on the exemptions in Section 5.5(b) – Issuer Not Listed on Specified Markets from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 and relied on the exemption in Section 5.7(1)(a) – Fair Market Value Not More Than 25 Per Cent of Market Capitalization from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report at least 21 days before the expected closing date of the Offering as the aforementioned insider participation had not been confirmed at that time and the Company wished to close the Offering as expeditiously as possible.
