VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR / OTC: HAMRF) (“Silver Hammer” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has staked an additional 52 new claims at its Eliza Silver Project in the historic Hamilton District of Nevada, more than doubling its land package.

The Eliza Silver Project is located along the south side of the Eberhardt fault, opposite the past-producing Treasure Hill Mine in the Hamilton Mining District, Nevada’s highest-grade silver district producing 40 million (M) ounces (oz) silver with historic mined ore grades of up to 18,700 grams per tonne (g/t) between 1860-1872. Surface samples as high as 25,000 g/t were collected in the 1960s.1

With the addition of these new claims, the Eliza land package now comprises 88 claims totaling 5.52 square kilometres, (see Figure 1).

“Our initial exploration work has identified mineralization that extends onto these newly acquired claims along the lower half of the Eliza project,” stated President Morgan Lekstrom. “We are currently conducting a mapping and geochemistry program on the property where we see significant potential for discovery in areas that have never been explored using modern exploration techniques. We will use this data to plan an extensive initial exploration program targeted for early 2022.”

Additionally, initial results from a sampling program at the Company’s Silverton Mine, a project sharing similar geology and Aster signature to Kinross Gold’s Round Mountain project located approximately 108 kilometres to the west, have confirmed surface gold mineralization on the east side of the property. A sample of 6.1 g/t gold was taken from the silicified tuff (see Figure 2).

  • Rock chip assays from the new discovery include 338.08 g/t Au, 194.28 g/t, 193.69 g/t and 83.61 g/t Au confirming the presence of high-grade epizonal gold in a second location on the Kingsway property
  • This further demonstrates the significant potential for high-grade near surface gold mineralization to be found along the Appleton Fault Zone
  • Golden Glove lies on the southeast side of the Appleton Fault Zone similar to gold occurrences to the south of Kingsway

TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce high-grade assay results from samples collected at a brand new discovery, the Golden Glove, located approximately 3.5km south of Big vein, part of its 100% controlled Kingsway Project near Gander, Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located within the highly prospective Gander Gold District.

Assays of six grab samples taken from an outcrop of mineralized quartz vein range from 2.99 to 338.08g/t Au. The three highest grade samples contained visible gold. A sample of quartz vein float approximately 60 metres to the northeast of the visible gold outcrop assayed 2.16g/t Au. Highlights of the results are given below.

The Golden Glove discovery is located adjacent to the Appleton Fault Zone approximately 3.5km southwest of Big Vein. Unlike Big Vein, it is located on the southeast side of the Appleton Fault Zone, similar to the Keats, Golden Joint and Lotto occurrences on New Found Gold’s Queensway property immediately to the south.

“The discovery of high-grade gold mineralization at Golden Glove is the result of our systematic approach to exploration at Kingsway. Golden Glove is just one of six prospective gold targets, excluding Big Vein, that we have generated and are currently exploring along the Appleton Fault,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of Labrador Gold. “We continue to advance these targets and generate new ones along the entire 12km length of the Appleton Fault covered by the Kingsway Project. This is the second new discovery made by LabGold on the Kingsway project following the discovery of Big Vein late last year. We anticipate making further discoveries as we continue to explore what appears to be a very productive fault zone.”

Samples were shipped to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples were analyzed for gold by whole sample metallic screen/fire assay or by standard 30g fire assay with ICP (inductively coupled plasma) finish. The company submits blanks, field duplicates and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

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 March 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 16km of the Appleton fault zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including the New Found Gold discovery. 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 recently increased its 20,000 metre diamond drill program to 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $34 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Hunt River and Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretch over 80 km. The belts are typical of greenstone belts around the world but have been underexplored by comparison. Initial work by Labrador Gold during 2017 show gold anomalies in 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 kilometres along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 57km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

The Company has 152,912,462 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Exclusive Interviews Junior Mining Precious Metals Rover Metals

Rover Metals – Junior Mining Company, 2 Gold Projects, Yellowknife

Maurice Jackson:

joining us for a conversation is Judson Culter the CEO of Rover Metals (TSX.V: ROVR | OTCQB: ROMVF). It’s a pleasure to be speaking with you today as Rover Metals has some important updates for shareholders regarding two active exploration programs in the Northwest Territories. Before we begin, Mr. Culter please introduce us to Rover Metals and the opportunity the company presents to the market.

Judson Culter:

Rover Metals is a publicly-traded gold company.  We are focused on Northern Canada making a large-scale discovery of high-grade gold.  We operate at the 60th parallel in northern Canada.

Maurice Jackson:

Mr. Culter, take us to the northwest territories where Rover Metals has just completed the drilling component of phase two on the flagship cabin gold project along the Bugow Iron Formation.  Sir, please remind us of the value proposition before it’s on the Cabin Gold Project.

Judson Culter:

The value proposition real-time at the time of this interview is an opportunity to buy in the open market and we are weeks away from bringing the drilling results from this summer to the Market. We spent $1.5 Mil CAD for over 30 drill holes across the Bugow Iron Formation.  We believe based on what we’ve seen in the field and the core that our geologists logged in the field from the drill core, that we’re likely to have another discovery zone.

Maurice Jackson:

I reference that the drilling component is completed but there’s more work still being conducted on phase two. What else do you have going on there?

Judson Culter:

We have an experienced team of field geologists that are actively working on what we’ve eyeballed as two new discovery zones. In addition to you know what we already know in the Arrow Zone, which was our discovery last year. Therefore, we are planning for drilling at depth, which was one of our prime objectives going into the drilling planned in Q1 of 2022.  All of our known surface zones at depth are setting the stage for delineating deep drilling in January along with a ground IP study, which we conducted at the end of August where we believe we got a great bang for the buck on exploration was incredible. We conducted a test run of a known mineralized zone with the IP work the end of August.  And the preliminary results came back and it not only told us areas along the Bugow Iron Formation, which are sulfide versus non-sulfide. 

Important to note, sulfide of course is what’s directly associated with high-grade gold in our project. The Induced Polarization (IP) work has also provides an insight on how to identify low versus high sulfide, which is valuable.  Because it gives us a true depth reading below surface of approximately 75 meters.  Also phase two along with drilling included airborne lidar imagery provide us the visuals to cancel out the trees, water, and the mud to allow us to see structurally see the rocks.  So, combining the lidar data with the drill data and gives us better understanding on things such as faulting, which happens close to surface, and we have to be able to follow the fault down depth to chase the high-grade gold. Again, the IP which is showing us below surface to 75 meters true depth where the high-sulfide is located.  The confidence going into our phase three drill program in January is going to be extremely high and we believe that we may have two additional new zones, in addition to the Arrow Zone, and we’re going to be follow along at depth. These iron formation are  underground mines and is setting the stage for our next program.

Maurice Jackson

Leaving the Cabin Lake Gold Project, let’s visit the Up Town Gold Project where Rover metals retains a 25 ownership interest today Rover metals announced that it has commenced on phase two of exploration.  Mr. Culter briefly acquaint us with the Up Town Gold Project.  The Up Town Gold Project is just on the outer city limits of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. The Uptown Gold Project is right next door to the historical Giant Mine. One could literally throw a rock from the Giant Mine head frame and hit the property.  Bearing in mind that the Giant Mine produced multi-millions of ounces of high- grade gold.  We are excited because the Up Town Gold Project is going to see drilling starting in two weeks.  And it’s going to a target that’s been overlooked since the 1960’s.  We believe there is a lot of potential in the northeast quadrant of the property that borders right up against Gold Terra’s claims which now has a 1.3 million ounce gold resource. So we’re in a sweet spot, one of their best drill targets is just north of where we’re going to be drilling. The green stone belt runs through the city of Yellowknife.  And, Newmont on the southern side of the city has optioned off some claims to Gold Terra.  It’s exciting because there’s a lot of renewed interest and multiple companies active in this area. Our partners are moving forward with the drill program and for them to have success benefits Rover as well because we retain 25%, but we also have a framework for a merger.

Maurice Jackson

Mr. Culter, please provide us with the capital structure for Rover metals.

Judson Culter:

Rover Metals has approximately 100 million shares outstanding.  We have a million-plus dollars in the bank right now reflective of that cap structure plus, 100% ownership of three projects plus the 25% ownership in Up Town.  

Maurice Jackson

In closing sir what would you like to say to shareholders?

Judson Culter:

I think now is a good time identify some good buying opportunities now that summer is drawing to a close and the kids are back in school, and double down on some investments such as Rover Metals that are near term on releasing results to the market.  We do expect to have good results in the coming weeks. Therefore, I feel that this may be a great time for speculators to check back in and follow us and hold on for the ride.

Maurice Jackson:

Judson for readers that want to learn more about Rover Metals, please share the contact details.

TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce further high-grade intercepts of near surface gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s 50,000 metre drill program. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

Three holes K-21-47, -48, and -49 all contained intervals grading more than 12g/t Au. Hole K-21-47 intersected 128.51 g/t Au over 1.12m from 168 metres in the HTC Zone which represents a “metal factor” (grade x width) of 143.9 g/t Au x m*. Hole K-21-48 intersected 35.7 g/t Au over 1.55m from 12.22m and hole K-21-49 intersected 9.6g/t Au over 10m from 51m, including 76.86g/t Au over 1m. Both intersections in holes K-21-48 and -49 are in the Big Vein Zone. A summary of the high-grade intersections, as well as other holes with assays recently received, are given in Table 1 below. *The width used to calculate metal factor is downhole width as there is insufficient information to calculate true width.

Big Vein target

The Big Vein target is an auriferous quartz vein exposed at surface that has been traced over 400 metres at surface along the Appleton Fault Zone. It lies within a larger northeast-southwest trending “quartz vein corridor” that stretches for over 7.5 kilometres as currently outlined, with potential for expansion along the 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone in both directions. Gold mineralization observed at Big Vein includes visible gold in quartz veins, assays of samples from which range from 1.87g/t to 1,065g/t gold. The visible gold is typically hosted in annealed and vuggy gray quartz, that is locally stylolitic with vugs often containing euhedral quartz infilling features characteristic of epizonal gold deposits.

The ongoing 50,000 metre drill program has tested Big Vein over approximately 200 metres of strike length of the 400m surface exposure and to vertical depths of 175 metres. Drilling has produced visible gold in 11 drill holes giving high grade intercepts as well as wide areas of gold mineralization associated with significant quartz veining and sulphide mineralization including arsenopyrite, pyrite and possible boulangerite noted along vein margins and as strong disseminations in the surrounding wall rocks.

Matthieu Lapointe has resigned as Vice President Exploration. We thank Matt for his guidance over the past year during which the Company made the significant high-grade epizonal gold discovery at Big Vein. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

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 ICP (inductively coupled plasma) finish with samples containing visible gold assayed by metallic screen/fire assay. The company submits blanks and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

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 March 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 16km of the Appleton fault zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including the New Found Gold discovery. 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 recently increased its 20,000 metre diamond drill program to 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $35 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Hunt River and Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretch over 80 km. The belts are typical of greenstone belts around the world but have been underexplored by comparison. Initial work by Labrador Gold during 2017 show gold anomalies in 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 kilometres along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 57km strike length of the Florence Lake greenstone belt.

The Company has 152,885,539 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Accelerated Near-Mine Exploration Program Underway at Novo’s Nullagine Gold Project

HIGHLIGHTS
 

  • Novo’s board of directors has approved an additional A$2.5M exploration budget to accelerate drilling of high-priority near-mine targets in the Mosquito Creek Basin which hosts the Nullagine gold project (the “ NGP ”) and the Golden Eagle processing facility.
  • A program of over 25,000 metres of reverse circulation (“ RC ”) drilling is in progress across several priority basement targets.
  • Novo’s exploration team has recently identified high priority drill targets including the Parnell-Vulture prospect. Significant results have been returned from mapping, rock chip and soil sampling programs, including a very large 1.5 km long, up to 500 m wide zone dominated by soil samples grading 100 ppb Au or better. These results are not necessarily representative of mineralization at the site.
  • The near-mine geology team has been expanded to accelerate near-mine exploration.
  • In addition, historical data from previous targets and mined open pits across the Mosquito Creek Basin is being re-analysed to determine further targets for potential feed for the Golden Eagle processing facility.
     

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Novo Resources Corp. “Novo” or the “Company” ) (TSX: NVO, NVO.WT & NVO.WT.A) (OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to provide an update on near-mine exploration programs focussing on exploration opportunities at its highly prospective 100% controlled NGP.

Near-Mine Exploration

Novo’s aggressive 2021 exploration continues with Novo’s board of directors approving additional funding of up to A$2.5M to support near-mine exploration. This is in addition to the A$12 million approved in June 2021 for exploration across Novo’s tenements in 2021 ( refer to the Company’s news release dated June 3, 2021 ). The goal of this program is to accelerate the delineation of targets in the Mosquito Creek Basin that have the potential to provide additional oxide mill feed to the NGP’s Golden Eagle processing facility .

Planned RC drilling of at least 25,000 m across multiple priority basement targets has commenced and is scheduled to be completed prior to year-end. Over 20 high priority orogenic gold drill targets ( Figure 1 ) have been identified within trucking distance of the Golden Eagle processing facility. Priority targets include Genne and Parnell-Vulture, both located on granted mining leases.

At the Parnell prospect (M46/527), a series of robust, coherent gold anomalies were recently returned from soil sampling, confirming targets highlighted during the June mapping program ( Figure 2 ). Of particular note is a very large 1.5 km long, up to 500 m wide zone dominated by soil samples grading 100 ppb Au or better and peaking at 7.8 g/t Au. Significant rock chip samples up to 14.6 g/t Au were also returned from Parnell-Vulture, again highlighting the presence of high-grade gold targets in this region. Although these results are not necessarily representative of mineralization at the site, they further confirm prospectivity of this area and drill planning for both prospects is currently underway as part of the current near-mine exploration program.

As part of the current near-mine exploration program, historical data from previous targets and mined open pits across the Mosquito Creek Basin is being re-analysed. With Novo’s extensive knowledge of the Mosquito Creek Basin, further targets for potential mill feed for the Golden Eagle processing facility are being assessed. This work may result in further areas for priority drill testing.

Talga Talga Drilling and Bulk Sampling

Novo recently completed a maiden 1,830 m, 34-hole RC drill program at its 100%-controlled Talga Talga gold project ( Figure 3 ) approximately 110 km north of the NGP and adjacent to the road that extends southward to the Golden Eagle processing facility. This property hosts a series of orogenic lode deposits hosted by greenstone that is part of the plus 3.0-billion-year-old basement rock of the Pilbara. Dips of the lodes are reasonably shallow and follow topography, making them well suited for open cast excavation. Assays results from the drilling program are expected in October 2021.

Figure 3 is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/fe415d91-d9f2-49ca-9af8-bd4aba7f758d

Talga Talga has the potential to be brought into the NGP as a satellite deposit. Part of the Company’s strategy is to trial bulk samples of mineralized material from Talga Talga through its mechanical sorter. In preparation for these trials, five, approximately 5-tonne bulk samples have been excavated from various lodes across the project and have been delivered to Golden Eagle to be included in the mechanical test work program to commence in October 2021.

Mechanical Sorting Trial Samples

In preparation for mechanical sorting trials that begin in October 2021, bulk samples stored at Karratha and Egina from previous sampling programs have been delivered to Golden Eagle. Karratha test material includes unprocessed bulk samples collected in 2018. Egina bulk sample material includes some 60 tonnes of gold-bearing gravels collected from large scale bulk sampling pits along the test swale on M46/560, the focus of exploration work in 2019. Novo expects to have results from testing on these samples and others including those from Talga Talga by the end of 2021.

Analytic Protocols

All soils and rock chips from Parnell and Vulture were submitted to Intertek Laboratories in Perth, Australia. Rock chips were assayed for FA gold (FA50/OE04) and 4-Acid Digest ME (4A/MS48). Soils will be assayed for Aqua Regia gold and ME (AR25/MS33).

There were no limitations to the verification process and all relevant data was verified by a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“ NI 43-101 ”) by reviewing analytical procedures undertaken by the laboratory. Dr. Quinton Hennigh (P.Geo.) is the qualified person responsible for, and having reviewed and approved, the technical information contained in this news release. Dr. Hennigh is a director of Novo and its Non-Executive Co-Chairman.
