    • Soil sample analytical results from the 2017 fall program on the Gold Drop Property
    • Conducted in the  Southwest Zone between the COD gold showing and the COD North gold showing and north of the gold bearing Everest vein
    • A total of 334 soil samples were collected along 31 soil lines. These lines were spaced 25m apart

 

Gold Drop Property, Greenwood British Columbia

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GGX Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGX) (the “Company” or “GGX”) is pleased to announce the receipt of soil sample analytical results from the 2017 fall program on the Gold Drop Property, located in southern British Columbia. The soil sampling geochemical program was conducted in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone between the COD gold showing and the COD North gold showing and north of the gold bearing Everest vein. The program identified gold soil anomalies including high values of 0.061, 0.073 and 0.088 ppm gold.

A total of 334 soil samples were collected during the program and submitted to ALS Minerals in North Vancouver for gold and multi-element analysis. The samples were screened to 180 micron. Gold analysis was by aqua regia extraction with ICP-MS finish. Multi-element analysis was by aqua regia extraction and ICP-MS and ICP-AES. Soil samples were collected along 31 soil lines. These lines were spaced 25m apart with a 25m sample interval. The soil lines were of varying lengths but on average 250m long.

 

The soil sampling program identified several soil gold anomalies in the Southwest Zone, including numerous samples exceeding 0.01 ppm Au (including high values of 0.061, 0.073 and 0.088 ppm Au). The most distinct anomaly or anomalies is in the COD North area, where anomalous values are concentrated between two historical workings. The soil sampling program extended the target area for at least 600 meters northeast of the area of 2017 drilling and trenching. The Company is planning follow up work in this area in 2018 including a trenching program. The program also identified other gold anomalies near the new COD adit and northeast of the COD trenches.

 

The soil sampling program in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone helped identify a new vein exposure in a small, 2 meter deep historic adit 175 meters north of the C.O.D. trench. The adit is driven on a North-south striking quartz vein that is on strike with the C.O.D. Vein, and appears to be of the same style as the Detonia/Jewel quartz vein. Another vein exposure north of the trench was also located by hand pitting on local quartz float. Bedrock quartz samples from the small hand pit material returned values of 4.97 g/t Au and 30.7 g/t Ag. Samples of boulder material found outside of the small adit returned values of 1.28 g/t Au and 6.97 g/t Ag. (News Release of Nov 8, 2017).

$GR.ca Great Atlantic Drills 7.59% Zinc Eq over 12.05 Meters, Discovers new Gold Zone below with 19M intercept of 0.64g/t

Posted by Er at 8:55 AM on Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

  • Initial drill samples from diamond drilling program at its Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property
  • 3.54% Zn, 0.92% Cu, 028% Pb and 115.6 g/t Ag over 12.05 meter in Ky-17-6
  • Discovery of a new gold bearing zone in Ky-17-6 (0.64 g/t Au over 19.96 meter core length).

 

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has received analytical results for initial drill core samples from the recent diamond drilling program at its Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property, located near Bathurst, northeast New Brunswick. The drilling program consisting of 5 holes (totalling 679 meters) was conducted in the northwest region of the property. Analytical results received are for core samples from the first two holes (Ky-17-5 and Ky-17-6) of the program.  Highlights include 7.59% Zn Eq. (3.54% Zn, 0.92% Cu, 028% Pb and 115.6 g/t Ag) over 12.05 meter core length in Ky-17-6 and the discovery of a new gold bearing zone in Ky-17-6 (0.64 g/t Au over 19.96 meter core length).

Zinc, copper, lead and silver bearing vein in Ky-17-6.

To view the graphic in its original size, please click here

The Keymet Property hosts multiple gold, silver, zinc, lead and / or copper occurrences and the Keymet deposit, site of the historic Keymet Mine.

The diamond drilling program tested the continuation of zinc, copper, lead and silver bearing veins and gold mineralization intersected by Great Atlantic during 2015 diamond drilling and trenching programs. Each of the 2017 holes intersected veins containing base metal sulfides and local disseminated arsenopyrite mineralization. Gold mineralization on the property is associated with arsenopyrite with previous Great Atlantic boulder samples returning up to 51 g/t Au. The Company has completed systematic sampling of mineralized drill core from each hole with core samples submitted to ALS Mineral in Sudbury, Ontario for analysis. The Company has received analyses for samples from holes Ky-17-5 and Ky-17-6, the first two holes in the 2017 program. Highlights include:

 

Four 2017 holes (Ky-17-5, 6, 7 and 9) were drilled in the same area as 2015 holes Ky-15-3 and 4,  approximately 1.4 kilometers northwest of the historic Keymet Mine, in an area referred to as the Elmtree 12 occurrence. Both 2015 holes intersected base metal and silver bearing veins (including 16.68% Zn, 1.11% Cu and 152.0 g/t Ag over 1.80 meter core length in Ky-15-3 and 8.68% Zn and 44.8 g/t Ag over 4.28 meter core length in Ky-15-4). Hole Ky-15-3 also intersected a gold bearing interval (3.28 g/t Au over2.1 meter core length). The true width of these initial 2015 drill intersections is unknown at this time. The 2017 program tested the continuation of this base metal and precious metal mineralization. Each of the 2017 holes in this area intersected veins with base metal sulfides. Company management are interpreting the main veins in this target area to be within a steep dipping to vertical vein system striking approximately north – south, with all Great Atlantic drill intersections to date being within an approximately 70 meter strike length and shallow depth (above 100 meter vertical depth).

Hole Ky-17-6 intersected local arsenopyrite within an approximate 50 meter core width interval appearing to be east to northeast of the main base metal bearing vein zone. The gold bearing interval of 164.00 – 183.96m is within this zone of arsenopyrite mineralization.

Closed-spaced 1980s diamond drill holes (Brunswick Mining and Smelting and Aurtec Inc.) in the area of holes Ky-15-3, 4, Ky-17-5, 6, 7 and 9 intersected near-surface mineralized veins (Elmtree 12 vein occurrence). A 0.88 metre core length interval from a 1981 drill hole was reported to grade 7.72% Cu, 11.36% Zn an 13.6 ounces per ton Ag. A 1.22 metre core length sample from a near-by 1989 drill hole was reported to assay 16.4% Cu, 10.11% Zn and 31.0 ounces per ton Ag. The true width of these intersections is unknown. These drill intersections are within 50 metre vertical depth. Great Atlantic personnel found loose casing in this area during 2015. It is uncertain which historic hole this represents.

Analytical results are pending for drill core samples from Ky-17-7, 8 and 9. Hole Ky-17-8, located approximately 80 meters southwest of holes Ky-17-5, 6 and 7, tested the down-dip extension of a gold bearing zone discovered by the Company in a 2015 trench (channel samples returning 1.1 g/t Au over 4.9 meters). The gold bearing zone in the trench is characterized by minor arsenopyrite in metasediments and increased quartz veining. A fault zone is also exposed in the trench hosting base metal and silver mineralization (2015 grab sample returned 8.99% lead, 1.76% zinc, 0.80% copper and 237 g/t silver). Although not initially noted, arsenopyrite was observed locally in the drill core during detailed core logging. This hole also intersected veins with base metal sulfides approximately vertically under the trench fault zone.

Access to the property is excellent with paved roads transecting the property, including a provincial highway. The property covers an area of approximately 3,400 hectares.

Posted by Er at 12:59 PM on Monday, December 18th, 2017

  • Wholly owned subsidiary entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% of the Winter House project.
  • On exercise of the Option, KOTN will have 18,000,000 Shares outstanding, of which St-Georges will hold 67%

 

St-Georges Platinum & Base Metals Ltd. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Kings of the North Corp., entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Winter House project.

King of the North Corp also announces that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) of unsecured debentures (the “Debentures”) for aggregate maximum gross proceeds of $2,000,000, to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Debentures will have an 18-month maturity date and pay interest at the rate of 10% per annum, calculated quarterly in arrears. Upon the occurrence of a liquidity event in Kings of the North Corp. (a “Liquidity Event”) before the Maturity Date, the Debentures’ aggregate principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest may be converted at the holder’s option into common shares of Kings of the North Corp. (each a “KOTN Share”) at a deemed conversion price equal to 25% of the liquidity event pricing, subject to a minimum initial issuance of $0.20 per Share and regulatory approval.

Winter House Option

In consideration for the 100% interest in the Property, KOTN will issue an aggregate of 6,000,000 Shares, assume $140,000 in current and on-going exploration expenses and grant a 3.5% net smelter return royalty on the Property.

On exercise of the Option, KOTN will have 18,000,000 Shares outstanding, of which St-Georges will hold 67%.

About the Winter House Project

The Winter House Project consists of 63 map-designated cells covering a surface area of 3,290 hectares (approximately 33 sq. km) and is located approximately 95 kilometres west of the town of Fermont, on the Quebec North Shore.

The Winter House project is part of the Superior geological province and is mainly composed of volcano-sedimentary rock assemblages of the Courcy and Soulard formations in contact with tonalites of the eastern Opatica Subprovince. Winter House is adjacent to the eastern border of Stelmine Canada’s Courcy project, which exposed gold mineralized zones, grading up to 24.8 g/t Au in grab samples (see Stelmine Canada PR dated October 17 of 2017) and up to 167 g/t Au over 0.5 metres in channel samples and up to 4.27 g/t Au over 42 m, including 12.15 g/t Au over 13.5 m in drill samples (Source SIGEOM: GM61872 and GM 62834).

Based on historical work, the Winter House project shows strong electromagnetic anomalies detected by a MAG-AeroTEM (magnetics and electromagnetics) airborne geophysical survey performed in 2008. These anomalies extend over a few kilometres and could represent potential targets for gold. During the summer of 2017, a follow-up reconnaissance program on the ground allowed the vendors to collect a total of 123 bedrock (surface) grab samples on these geophysical anomalies. These samples have been submitted for analyses for gold and a package of multi-elements. The results from these analyses are pending and will be released as soon as all results are received and compiled.

Related Party Transaction

A portion of the Option constitutes a “related party transaction” as set out in Multilateral Instrument 61-101, Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), as Francois (Frank) Dumas and Neha Edah Tally, both officers of St-Georges, will be issued under the Option respectively 1,280,000 and 120,000 Shares. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements under MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to or the consideration paid by such persons exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Option as it wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.

Alain Berclaz, P.Geo, a consultant to St-Georges and a Qualified Person under the definition of Canadian National Instrument 43-101, has approved the technical information in this news release.

With this acquisition, the Ogden property now consists of 23 mining claims (118 mineral claim units) and 7 patented mining claims covering 2,006.56 hectares situated in the Porcupine mining division, district of Cochrane, in the Ogden and Price Townships, Ontario. The Ogden property has been previously explored by Hollinger Mines, Tex-Sol Exploration, Inmet Mining Corporation, Amax Mineral Exploration, Noranda Exploration and Knick Exploration. The majority of the holes drilled by previous operators were less than 100 meters in length. Historically on the Ogden Property, the only hole that hit significant mineralization was a diamond drill hole by Tex-Sol Exploration in 1965 which returned 6.0 g/t Au over 9.1 m at a shallow depth. On the TPW Gold Property significant mineralization was intersected below 300 meters of vertical depth requiring drill holes of 500 to 600 m in length.

The most significant deposits in Timmins are spatially associated with porphyry units that are in proximity to the Porcupine Destor Fault. The deposits appear to be also associated with splay faults that trend off and to the North of the Porcupine Destor fault inside an interpreted splay fault corridor.

AMERICAN CREEK REPORTS ON TREATY CREEK – COPPER BELLE HOLE CB-17-24 WHICH INTERSECTED 115.5 M OF 1.31 G/T GOLD INCLUDING 39 M OF 2.38 G/T GOLD $SEA $SA $SKE.ca $TUD.ca $PVG

  • Final results for the 2017 exploration season from the GR2/HC zone of the Treaty Creek project.
  • HC extension of the GR2 zone was discovered during the 2017 exploration program and carries high-grade gold, silver and base metal mineralization
  • 115.5m of 1.31 G/T Gold Including 39m of 2.38 G/T Gold

 

American Creek Resources Ltd. has provided information on Tudor Gold’s final results for the 2017 exploration season from the GR2/HC zone of the Treaty Creek project. The Treaty Creek project is situated immediately north of Seabridge Gold’s KSM property and near Pretium’s Valley of the Kings mine, both of which are situated in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle along the Sulphurets and Brucejack fault systems that continue northward into the Treaty Creek property.

The HC extension of the GR2 zone was discovered during the 2017 exploration program and carries high-grade gold, silver and base metal mineralization. The HC drill program augmented the previous drill holes in the zone and consisted of 17 drill holes totalling 5,401 metres in 2017. The program was designed with a maximum of 50-metre stepouts in the mineralized zone to prepare for a preliminary resource estimate.

The GR2/HC zone appears to be a gold-rich volcanic-hosted massive sulphide deposit in which the feeder vein system and the stratabound lenses have been intersected. A later silver (lead-zinc-antimony-copper) vein system was also found reactivating some of the previous structures in the same area where the HC extension is located. These veins are late in the formation and are hosted in the volcaniclastic sequence or in the younger Jurassic Hazelton sequence, crosscutting (and reactivating) previous HC related feeder vein system and HC stratabound lenses. The RR Ag-base metal vein holes are collared 800 metres north of the HC zone, following the same structure.

Thirty-six drill holes have been drilled to date in the GR2/HC, covering an area approximately 400 m along strike and 450 m down dip at 50 m space increments that show consistent geology and which demonstrate the distribution and continuity of the feeder vein system, the stratabound zone and the late silver-base metal vein system. Historical surface sampling carried out by previous operators to both the north and south of the GR2/HC zone indicates that the main mineralized structure potentially extends 3,000 m along strike. The mineralized structure remains open to the north and south beyond the existing drill holes, and down dip.

Significant drill results are summarized in the attached tables (all distance measurements reported in metres).

Darren Blaney, chief executive officer of American Creek, stated: “The discovery of the new HC extension is a very welcome bonus to this year’s Treaty Creek drill program. The GR2/HC system appears to have potential to be very extensive, which would add significant value to the adjoining Copper Belle bulk tonnage gold zone, which was the main focus of this year’s drill program. A large polymetallic zone with high-grade gold and silver would be a most welcome addition to the project.”

Two thousand seventeen drill results from the Copper Belle gold zone at Treaty Creek are still pending and will be reported on once received.

Background on the Treaty Creek project

Tudor conducted a major drill program (approximately 20,000 metres) on the Treaty Creek property this summer with the objective of defining a gold resource on the Copper Belle zone.

The Treaty Creek project is a joint venture between Tudor, Teuton Resources Corp. and American Creek. Tudor is the operator and holds a 60-per-cent interest with both American Creek and Teuton each holding respective 20-per-cent carried interests in the property (fully carried until a production notice is given).

Electrum project road completion

The corporation also reports that Tudor Gold recently completed construction of an access road extension on the Electrum project connecting the existing Granduc haul road to the New Blast/Shiny Cliff high-grade gold and silver zones which are the focus of a planned 10,000-ton bulk sample.

In Tudor’s recent news release, Walter Storm, president and chief executive officer, stated: “We are very pleased to have completed this access road, which will now allow us to proceed with a 10,000-ton bulk sample of this high-grade gold/silver mineralized zone, subject to receipt of permits. A bulk sample in combination with past drill results will further our geological understanding and unlock value of this high-grade mineralized system.”

Background on the Electrum property

The Electrum property is a 60:40 joint venture between Tudor Gold (as operator) and American Creek. It is located between the past-producing Silbak-Premier gold mine and British Columbia’s newest gold mine, Pretium’s Valley of the Kings — recently commissioned at a cost of $1-billion and hosting proven and probable reserves of 8.1 million ounces of gold (see Pretium’s website). Within this rich portion of B.C.’s Golden Triangle are several other past-producing mines as well as numerous new projects undergoing exploration.

About American Creek Resources Ltd.

American Creek holds a strong portfolio of gold and silver properties in British Columbia. The portfolio includes three Golden Triangle gold/silver properties: the Treaty Creek and Electrum joint ventures with Walter Storm/Tudor as well as the recently acquired 100-per-cent-owned past-producing Dunwell mine. Other properties held throughout B.C. include the Gold Hill, Austruck-Bonanza, Ample Goldmax, Silver Side and Glitter King.
