Riverside Resources Repatriates Its Portfolio in the Geraldton Gold Belt in Ontario, Canada

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 1, 2021) – Riverside Resources Inc. (TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) (“Riverside” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce the repatriation of its 3 projects in the Beardmore-Geraldton Greenstone Belt (“BGGB”) in Ontario, Canada. In February 2021, Riverside offered the sale of its portfolio to iMetal Resources Inc. (“iMetal”). The Purchase Agreement was contingent upon a series of conditions which were not completed. At this time both parties have mutually agreed to dissolve the transaction and Riverside has now retained 100% ownership of the project portfolio of: Oakes, Longrose and Pichette located in the well-endowed and prolific BGGB. The recovery of these projects occurs at an opportune time for Riverside, particularly since the region is experiencing a renaissance in mining activity. Specifically, the recent launch of construction at the Greenstone Mine (an Equinox Gold / Orion Joint Venture) near the town of Geraldton, which bodes extremely well for Riverside’s own projects which are located along the trans-Canada highway and in close proximity to the Greenstone Mine.

During the past 7 months Riverside acted as exploration operator completing a summer field program. During the agreement with iMetal, Riverside more than doubled the induced polarization survey (IP) grid as well as conducted a focused sampling and mapping program along the survey grid at the Oakes Gold Project.

Highlights of the BGGB portfolio can be found in the press release dated February 10, 2021, which summarizes the previous work done at Oakes and also Riverside’s work on the three properties (see Figure 1).

Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude: “Regaining control of this three-project portfolio of further de-risked gold properties near the developing Greenstone Gold Mine provides Riverside with a unique opportunity to advance exploration ourselves. Drill target generation progressed this summer, we have a drill permit in hand and will start with further exploration work at Oakes with a view towards drilling initial targets there during 2022.”

Oakes Project:

Riverside acquired the BGGB portfolio in 2019, through a staking program with the opportunity to secure open ground in a prolific gold belt in northwestern Ontario adjacent to the Greenstone Gold Mine, a large gold resource and near-term future mining operation. Since 2019, Riverside’s technical teams have progressed and defined a large undrilled exploration target through the compilation of historical work including high grade gold drill and trench results, and an IP survey. Riverside controls a total of 55 km2 (5,544 hectares) at the Oakes Project, which is defined as being the most advanced project within the recovered BGGB portfolio. The latest exploration work included defining drill targets over a 2.3 km long IP anomaly corresponding to approximately 30% of the property explored as presented below.

The 2021 IP survey included a total of 12 line-km with the intention to identifying continuity to the east and west of the known mineralized system. These new geophysical results show an increased anomaly from 600 m length to a total of 2.2 km with continuity of the anomaly from the 2010 IP1 grid to the 2021 grid extension. Recent field work from Riverside’s team aimed to verify the IP anomalies on the ground looking for any potential associated evidence of mineralization and collect samples (pending).

At least three targets have been described as presented below, all of them drill-ready:

  • High Grade (“HG”) target reporting up to 31.9 g/t Au at surface (see press release July 29, 2019)
  • Brinklow target reporting a sample of 0.8 g/t Au
  • Crib target with sample assays pending

The high chargeability anomalies are not restricted along strike, neither to the west nor the east side, leaving the possibility for extension beyond the 2.2 km three parallel chargeable corridors. This will allow for additional exploration follow up in 2022 heading toward drilling.



Figure 2: Normalized chargeability (IP) combined 2010 (Golden Chalice, 2010) and Riverside 2021 covering about 30% of the Oakes Project. Anomalies presented as targets are understood to be related to geological features/variations, all of interest potentially related to mineralization. Overall, IP anomalies strike at Az100. Assay results are from Riverside’s field work in 2019.

Riverside Resources Delineates 3 Projects Within the High Lake Greenstone Belt in Ontario, Canada

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 19, 2021) – Riverside Resources Inc. (TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) (“Riverside” or the “Company”), is pleased to provide an update on the work program progressing at the High Lake Greenstone Belt in Northwestern Ontario. The company has successfully delineated three (3) projects which are expected to move ahead with more detailed exploration.

Last year Riverside staked a commanding land position of 230 square kilometers within the High Lake-Shoal Lake Greenstone Belt, containing at least two gold mineralization systems with Riverside controlling the structural geologic and intrusion boundary projections of some exploration projects historically defined. This gold-bearing belt is located immediately east of the Ontario-Manitoba border and has good highway infrastructure and extensive favorable age and types of geology. The region hosts multiple discoveries, such as the Shoal Lake deposit which contains over 347,000 ounces of gold (Inferred and Indicated; 2010, NI 43-101[1] of the KPM total). Riverside’s interest in this belt has been triggered by the positive geological settings and extensive occurrences of mineralization found in the area. Recent and past production in Northwestern Ontario includes mines in the Red Lake, Rainy River and Hemlo gold districts, which collectively total over 130Moz gold. All of these active areas are located in similar greenstone belts in western Ontario. New mines and the resurgence of operations in these three gold camps is part of an overall renaissance for new development and integration of the past knowledge with new interpretations and work in this favorable mining Canadian province.

Riverside’s 3 projects in the High Lake – Shoal Lake Greenstone Belt:

  • Electrum Project: 1,800 hectares
  • Royal Project: 6,150 hectares
  • Canoe Project: 4,260 hectares

Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude: “In addition to our active exploration group in Mexico, Riverside is moving forward in Canada not only with the recent deal with iMetal Resources but also with new High Lake Greenstone portfolio of projects that present strong potential for new gold discoveries. Ontario’s greenstone belts have been producing world-class size gold resources and continue to deliver new discoveries like in Red Lake with the Great Bear and Pure Gold companies among a host of others. We are glad to be part of this momentum in northwestern Ontario and to be able to bring three additional 100%-Riverside owned projects with strong discovery potential into our portfolio.

Electrum Project:

This project has many documented occurrences of gold, copper, and silver at surface, primarily structurally related and hosted within granitoids and at contact with meta-volcanics similar to features in the Manitoba and western Ontario orogenic gold greenstone gold camps. Riverside’s mineral tenure has been previously explored with 4 core drill holes, including an intercept of 0.9 m of 8.99 g/t Au (Internal technical reporting, 2005). Historical soil and rock sampling have reported anomalous grade in gold, copper, molybdenum and silver all of which can be used for vectoring of mineralization and on which Riverside is putting more to. The mineralization on Riverside’s 100% owned property is adjacent and follows the same structures and lithology of the drilled mineralization body found adjacent on the internal concession known as the High Lake Property not on Riverside’s concessions (see Figure 2 below), bringing interest on testing the high-grade targets and system for finding new discoveries associated with this area.

Royal Project:

Historical exploration of the Royal Project has defined many base metals occurrences with characteristics suggestive of volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) mineralization. This project, which lies to the east of the Electrum Project shows variation in geology, including alternating meta-volcanics and meta-sedimentary units folded along a primary E-W axis. Historical data highlights anomalies in base metals and VMS style mineralization at surface and some geophysics surveys by different companies and particularly by Noranda Exploration Company Ltd (1990), which highlighted several strong conductors that have yet to be drill tested. This style of environment has proven favorable in many deposits in Ontario, including the Rainy River Gold deposit located approximately 100 km to the south of the Project.

Canoe Project:

The Canoe project is located along the edge of the main pluton bounding the known Shoal Lake gold deposit to the north which host over 347,000 ounces of gold. The area shows noted anomalies at surface and in drill holes of Cu-Zn-Au especially at the contact between the pluton and the meta-volcanics. As with the other two projects, the Canoe project is located along a key structural feature which is oriented NE and merging into EW to the north of the property. Historical work includes drill holes by Teeshin Resources Ltd., (1988), trenching, surface sampling and EM geophysics. Presence of gold to the southwest of the property is particularly abundant and can be traced into Riverside’s property (see Figure 4 below).

Moving forward, Riverside will be focusing attention on these three projects that all display excellent locations and have the potential to host the geological and structural settings favourable for future discoveries. Field work to date has been positive and the accessibility, favorable geology and presence of large-scale structures makes the High Lake Greenstone Area a key new opportunity for the Company.
