White Metal Resources $WHM Partner Noronex Commences 10,000 M #Drilling Program at the DorWit #Copper-Silver Project, #Namibia

Thunder Bay, Ontario, September 9, 2021: White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FRA: CGK1) (OTCMKTS: TNMLF) (“White Metal” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update from its Australian joint venture partner Noronex Limited (ASX: NRX) (“Noronex”). Noronex has informed White Metal that it has commenced a 10,000 metre drilling program at the DorWit Copper-Silver Project (the “Property” or “Project”) in Namibia (see Noronex news release dated 17 August 2021). The Namibian Project comprises three Exclusive Prospecting Licences (EPLs) that cover 78,000 hectares, referred to as the Witvlei (EPL 7028 and EPL 7029) and Dordabis (EPL 7030) properties. The Project is prospective for sedimentary-hosted Cu-Ag mineralization within the prolific Kalahari Copper Belt that spans Namibia and Botswana. The focus of the current exploration efforts will be on the Witvlei project that comprises EPL 7028 and 7029 (Figure 1).

Highlights of the Drilling Program:

 Drilling has commenced in Namibia at Witvlei Project at the Otjiwaru Prospect (Figure 2).

  • Program of drilling will test five high-priority targets with 10,000 m of Reverse Circulation (RC) holes
  • Geophysical crew has completed the Dipole-Dipole IP survey at Gemboksvlei and is currently underway at
  • Known mineralization is confirmed to have a strong chargeability IP anomaly and a number of new chargeable zones are defined associated with anomalous copper geochemistry.
  • Drilling is expected to continue for three-to-four months across the five high-priority targets that have been identified:
    • sub-cropping copper at Dalheim with two-kilometre strike
    • chargeability IP anomalies at Gemboksvlei on a one-kilometre-long copper soil
    • outcropping copper at Otjiwaru over an 800-m-wide
    • a 5 km by 1.2 km copper-in-soil anomaly in an altered structural zone south of Okasewa.
    • unexplained copper soil anomalies at Christiadore

Michael Stares, President & CEO of White Metal, stated, “This is great news that Noronex has started their drill program and it indicates that they are truly committed to advancing the DorWit Property. I look forward to receiving updates and reporting the results of the drilling to our shareholders. I should add that the Company has been successful in securing three JV Partners including Noronex to advance other projects that the Company owns. This includes the Startrek Property, optioned by Leocor Gold, that is located in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, near New Found Gold’s Queensway Property. Leocor Gold is currently starting work on the Startrek Property. The other JV is with Benton Resources who is advancing the Far Lake Copper-Silver Property, located about 90 minutes west of Thunder Bay.”

Triumph Gold $TIG $TIGCF Announces Completion of #Exploration #Drilling at the Freegold Mountain Project, #Yukon

Vancouver, B.C., September 8, 2021 – Triumph Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TIG | OTCMKTS: TIGCF) (“Triumph Gold” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of a 19 hole, 6,615 metre diamond drilling program (“the Program”) focused on the Nucleus and Revenue areas of the Freegold Mountain Project (“the Project”) located in Yukon, Canada (Figure 1). All of the drill core has been cut, sampled, and submitted to ALS Global for analysis. Final assay results are expected to return in regular batches throughout September and October.

 

Initial highlights of the Program include:

  • Confirmation of two styles of overlapping mineralization forming the Nucleus gold-silver-copper deposit with flat-lying skarn mineralization cut by epithermal mineralization associated with steeply-dipping fault zones within schists and gneiss of Yukon Tanana Terrane (“YTT”) and felsic intrusive rocks (Photos 1 and 2).
  • Intersection of sulphide-replacement and epithermal mineralization proximal to the regional South Big Creek Fault within YTT and felsic intrusive rocks in step-out drilling south of the Nucleus gold-silver-copper Deposit (Photo 3). New mineralization was also intersected southeast of the Nucleus resource area (Photo 4).
  • Expansion of porphyry-related and epithermal mineralization at the WAu and Blue Sky Zones hosted in the Revenue gold-silver-copper-molybdenum-tungsten Deposit (Photo 5). Drilling also expanded a zone of porphyry-style mineralization proximal to the southern contact of the WAu Zone. (Photo 6).

Additional exploration activities have advanced mineral prospects on the Freegold Mountain Project outside of the Nucleus and Revenue Deposit areas. This portion of the 2021 exploration season is ongoing and includes geological mapping and prospecting, 37 line-kilometres of soil geochemical surveying, 100 line-kilometres of ground magnetic surveying, and 6 line-kilometres of HLEM surveying, all of which are expected to be completed by mid-September.

“Triumph Gold has used improved deposit and geophysical modeling along with AI vectoring to identify and target underexplored areas of the Freegold Mountain Project. We are very excited to receive assay results to confirm drillcore observations from all areas, including newly identified mineralization intersected south and east of Nucleus.” says Jesse Halle, VP Exploration for Triumph Gold. Halle adds “Work on our pipeline prospects is ongoing and preliminary results from these efforts are very encouraging.”

White Metal $WHM Announces New Mineral Resource Estimate Containing 7.7Mt at 1.82% CuEq, Using a 0.30% Cu Cut-off, Taranis (Okohongo) #Copper-Silver #Project, #Namibia

White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FRA: CGK1) (OTCMKTS: TNMLF) (“White Metal” or the “Company”) today announced a new Mineral Resource Estimate on the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit located within it 95% owned Taranis (Okohongo) Cu-Ag Project (the “Project” or “Property”), as defined by Exclusive Prospecting Licence (“EPL”) 7071 which covers about 19,850 hectares and is located in the Kaoko Copperbelt, northwestern Namibia.

Michael Stares, President & CEO of White Metal, stated, “We believe the results from the new Mineral Resource Estimate demonstrate core value of the Okohongo and this resource, coupled with the more recent exploration work showing very positive copper and silver results both north and south of the Okohongo, really outline the incredible upside to this Project. We believe there is significant opportunity to expand the Okohongo along strike, which at this stage of exploration shows potential along a prospective horizon of more than 20 kilometres. Although White Metal remains focussed on progressing its flagship project, the Tower Stock Gold Project in Ontario, Canada, the Company will continue to advance the Okohongo Copper-Silver Project as one of its primary assets.”

Mineral Resource Estimate

White Metal is very pleased to announce a new Mineral Resource Estimate (“MRE”) for the Taranis (Okohongo) Cu-Ag Project. A total of 3,226 metres of Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drilling in 28 drill holes (518 chip samples in resource) and 781.70 metres of historical diamond drill core in 4 holes (63 core samples in resource) were used to calculate the Mineral Resources in the Inferred category (Table 1). The area covered by the resource is about 740 m (east-west) and 720 m (north-south). Using a cut-off grade of 0.30% Cu and assuming 10% geological loss, the study reported approximately 7.7 million tonnes grading 1.55% Cu and 26.77 g/t Ag with a calculated copper equivalent (CuEq) of 1.82% Cu. A grade-tonnage sensitivity analysis is provided in Table 2. Example cross-sections/ block model views of the MRE are provided in Figures 1 and 2, and 3D image of the conceptual open pit and resource is provided in Figure 1.

The MRE was prepared by Caracle Creek International Consulting MINRES (Pty) Ltd. (“CCIC MINRES”), South Africa, in accordance with current CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves. A Technical Report in support of the MRE will be filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) within 45 days of this news release. The MRE is effective as at August 11, 2021.

Inferred 7,706,732 1.55 26.77 1.82 119,256 6,634,133 139,891
  1. The independent Qualified Person for the Mineral Resource Estimate, as defined by NI 43-101, is Mr. Sivanesan (Desmond) Subramani (Pri. Sci. Nat – 400184/06), Caracle Creek International Consulting MINRES (Pty) Ltd. (CCIC MINRES), South Africa. The effective date of the Mineral Resource Estimate is August 11, 2021.
  2. These Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves as they do not have demonstrated economic viability. The quantity and grade of reported Inferred Resources in this Mineral Resource Estimate are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these Inferred Resources as Indicated or Measured, however it is reasonably expected that the majority of Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration.
  3. Copper equivalent (CuEq) was calculated using a copper price of US$3.75/lb and a silver price of US$25.00/oz and applying the formula: CuEq = Cu% + (Ag g/t * 0.01).
  4. A cut-off grade of 0.30% Cu was used for the low- and high-grade domains. The cut-off grade was determined on the basis of core assay geostatistics and drill core lithologies for the deposit, and by comparison to analogous deposit types.
  5. Tonnages are reported applying a geological loss of 10%, to account for unknown geological discontinuities; 10% is based on experience of other deposits in similar geological settings.
  6. Geological and block models for the Mineral Resource Estimate used data from a total of 24 surface reverse circulation drill holes, completed by White Metal in January-February 2021, and four re-sampled historical diamond drill holes (completed by Teck in 2008 and INV Metals in 2011). The drill hole database was validated prior to resource estimation and QA/QC checks were made using industry-standard control charts for blanks, RC chips sample duplicates, and commercial certified reference material (standards and blanks) inserted into assay batches by White Metal and by comparison of umpire RC chip sample assays performed at a second laboratory.
  7. Estimates in Table 1 have been rounded to two significant figures.
  8. The Inferred Mineral Resources were constrained by a Lerchs-Grossmann conceptual open pit envelope that was developed using the following optimization parameters: i) metal prices of US$3.75/lb copper and $25/oz silver; ii) an overall pit slope of 55 degrees; iii) bulk mining costs of US$2/t (ore) and US$1/t (waste), derived from other comparative copper projects in African copper belts; iv) processing costs and G&A estimated at US$7.80/t; and v) plant recoveries assumed to be 80% copper and 80% silver.
  9. The Mineral Resource Estimate was prepared following the CIM Estimation of Mineral Resources & Mineral Reserves Best Practice Guidelines (November 29, 2019).
  10. The geological model as applied to the Mineral Resource Estimate comprises eight Individual wireframes that were created for each grade domain.
  11. The block model was prepared using Datamine Studio RM software. A 50 m x 50 m x 5 m block model was created and samples were composited at 1.0 m intervals. Grade estimation from drill hole data was carried out for Cu and Ag using the Ordinary Kriging interpolation method.
  12. Grade estimation was validated by comparison of input and output statistics, swath plot analysis, and by visual inspection of the assay data, block model, and grade shells in cross-sections.
  13. The applied average specific gravity (2.45 t/m3) was determined on the basis of CCIC MINRES’s in-house library of SG and bulk density measurements from similar deposits in the African copper belts.

Triumph Gold $TIG $TIGCF Completes #Artificial #Intelligence Study at the Freegold Mountain Project, #Yukon

Triumph Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TIG | OTCMKTS: TIGCF) (“Triumph Gold” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has concluded an in-depth Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) study focused on the Revenue-Nucleus Area, a large zone of gold-copper-silver-molybdenum mineralization, within their district-scale Freegold Mountain Project (“the Project”) located in Yukon, Canada (Figure 1). The Company engaged Minerva Intelligence Inc. (“Minerva”) to utilize their cutting-edge DRIVER software along with K-Means Cluster Analysis to evaluate multi-element drilling data.

Results from Minerva’s cognitive AI analysis have enhanced Triumph’s technical understanding of the Nucleus and Revenue Deposits by providing confidence in existing models and identifying unrealized controls on mineralization. Key findings are being used to guide current exploration activities at the Freegold Mountain Project, notably:

  1. At the Nucleus Deposit, DRIVER revealed new vectors to gold and copper mineralization not characterized in the current mineral resource delivering superior exploration models and a clear path forward for resource expansion,
  2. At the Revenue Deposit, DRIVER has identified under-evaluated areas at northeast and southern contacts of the diatreme providing credible drill-ready exploration targets, and
  3. In the Revenue-Nucleus Area, K-Means Cluster Analysis highlighted semi-quantitative alteration styles allowing for robust modelling and vectoring toward zones of high-grade mineralization.

“As an exploration company that embraces the application of new technology, Triumph is pleased by the depth of insight provided by Minerva,” says Jesse Halle, VP Exploration for Triumph Gold. “Having over 145,000 metres of drilling at the Freegold Mountain Project, along with a massive amount of other exploration data, Minerva’s AI engine has helped sharpen the focus of our new Technical Team.”

Brian May, Chief Geoscientist for Triumph Gold adds, “DRIVER has validated Triumph’s stratigraphic and structural interpretations in the Nucleus deposit area. Multielement overlaps will be drill-tested to further confirm our technical team’s interpretations this exploration season.”

Scott Tillman, Minerva Intelligence CEO, is excited about the results. “Our ongoing relationship with Triumph Gold is a win-win for our respective companies,” said Tillman. “Triumph’s embrace of our state-of-the-art mining and exploration software is proof-positive of the value our cognitive AI technology can bring to mining and exploration companies. Triumph’s vast amount of data made the results even better than we had expected.”

DRIVER Software 

Minerva Intelligence DRIVER software analyzed and evaluated a comprehensive database of geochemical results compiled from multiple generations of diamond drilling in the Revenue and Nucleus Mineral Resource Deposit areas of the Freegold Mountain Project.

Cost-effective computer reasoning generated orientation data for all elements in the dataset. Further work was performed on key economic elements through automated identification of optimal (“preferred”) orientations, in both planar and linear modes. These results provided potential exploration vectors from Triumph’s database that can be used to identify exploration targets in unexplored regions outside the known resources or mineral prospects.

Additionally, Minerva’s cognitive reasoning platform compared elemental association data from hundreds of past and present mines throughout the world with that of the Revenue-Nucleus Area. Comparisons between Triumph’s resources and known deposit types serve as reliable models upon which geologists can confidently develop their exploration and/or development strategies. 

Nucleus Au-Ag-Cu Deposit

The Nucleus Au-Ag-Cu deposit is a complex deposit involving early porphyry-copper and skarn mineralization overprinted with related epithermal styles of mineralization. Triumph Gold’s technical team has recently modeled the skarn-style mineralization to be preferentially located along favourable horizons within the host Yukon-Tanana metamorphic rock package, as well as at contacts with leucogranite dikes and sills. Past geochronology shows at least some of the Au-Ag-Cu mineralization is coincident with the emplacement of east-trending quartz-feldspar porphyry dikes.

The results of DRIVER’s AI analysis were many, including an independent confirmation of the probability shell developed for the 2020 Resource Estimate which was largely based on dike orientation. The close agreement of the optimal orientation and the rigorously-defined gold shell in the deposit area provides confidence in the Resource Estimate and supports this orientation as an exploration opportunity. Minerva believes this type of agreement may soon be utilized to evaluate other metals as potential co- and by-products on a semi-quantitative basis.

An additional previously unappreciated gold orientation was identified from DRIVER’s outputs at the Nucleus deposit, this time along a northwest-trending structure. This orientation is correlated with a fault corridor and coincident dike swarm and represents an additional opportunity for proximal expansion of, and exploration around, the current resource.

The preferred orientations for copper at the Nucleus deposit area resulted in a largely bimodal distribution, which had not been previously understood. The technical team is currently working on identifying underlying reasons for this distribution, along with other vectors controlling economic mineralization.

Revenue Au-Ag-Cu-Mo-W Deposit

The Revenue Deposit consists of porphyry-copper and related epithermal mineralization within a granodiorite to quartz monzonite intrusive complex. Numerous mineralized zones have been discovered at Revenue, notably the gold-copper-silver-molybdenum-bearing Blue Sky and WAu Porphyry and Epithermal Zones and the proximal mineralized diatreme breccia. Several other mineralized centres have been identified in the Revenue deposit area, including the Guder, Revenue West, Grainger, and Keirsten Zones.

Minerva’s optimal orientation DRIVER results for gold, copper, and molybdenum delineate both the southern and the northeastern contact between the diatreme breccia and the granodiorite as primary locations for further evaluation. The DRIVER results also agree very well with the current lithologic model, providing additional confidence for the technical team’s interpretations.

K-Means Cluster Analysis

K-Means Cluster (KMC) Analysis is an unsupervised learning algorithm meant to identify relationships inherent in a dataset. Unlike supervised learning methods, it does not require labeled training data from which to practice and learn, but rather uncovers native associations within the data itself. For multi-element geochemical data, it identifies potential element assemblages present in the data. If executed carefully and with appropriate data preparation, KMC Analysis can reveal complicated patterns in the data that would otherwise be missed.

Geochemical data was analyzed and evaluated using K-Means Cluster Analysis available in ioGAS software. Clusters (or groups of data records with similar geochemistry) are defined and redefined based on minimizing the distance between the data record and the cluster centre. KMC Analysis concludes when either the change in the distance of each of the data points from the respective centres for assigned cluster approaches a minimum, or the specified number of iterations is reached. Multiple iterations were attempted on the data for both the Nucleus and Revenue Deposit areas using various elements, data transforms and/or initial analytical parameters.

Nucleus Au-Ag-Cu Deposit

K-Means Cluster Analysis and subsequent interpretation though discrimination plots suggest the numerous lithologies within the Nucleus Deposit area have been subjected to variable degrees and styles of potassic alteration. Discrimination plots suggest a small proportion of the data is potassic feldspar (K-spar) alteration, implying an underlying copper-porphyry-style signature. The plots are more suggestive of potassic alteration predominantly expressed as secondary sericite. Based on molar ratios, the most recent alteration event is interpreted to preferentially involve plagioclase (predominantly albite) and is largely independent of K-spar. These observations are consistent with mineralization stemming from the intrusion of quartz-feldspar porphyry dikes from a buried porphyry intrusion.

A large portion of the results in the Nucleus Deposit area are consistent with intrusion-related skarn-type mineralization and closely-associated sulphide mineralization. The geochemistry of these high-iron areas is consistent with the appearance of secondary Ca-rich pyroxene and clinochlore. Triumph geologists believe these results are consistent with the skarn-style mineralization observed in many areas of the deposit.

Revenue Au-Ag-Cu-Mo-W Deposit

K-Means Cluster Analysis and subsequent interpretation though discrimination plots highlight the Blue Sky porphyry and contacts of diatreme breccia as the largest zone of extensive alteration, documenting high values for Ca, K and Na. Barium (Ba) is also anomalous in this zone and extends westward towards Keirsten South Zone. These zones are largely underexplored and represent targets for future work.

Specific locations in the Revenue Deposit are flagged in the K-Means Cluster Analysis work as having been subjected to alkali alteration through Na depletion and potassium addition. Results indicate that the dominant potassic phase is K-rich muscovite with only a small subset interpreted as potassium feldspar alteration. This type of alteration is consistent with the ‘low sulphidation’ deposit model proposed for the deposit area.

White Metal $WHM Samples 35.2% Cu and 548 g/t Ag in Rock Grab Samples from the Propsective #Okangura Area Southwest of the #Okohongo Copper-Silver #Deposit, #Namibia

White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FRA: CGK1) (OTCMKTS: TNMLF) (“White Metal” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update regarding its exploration program north and south along strike from the Okohongo copper-silver Deposit (see Company news release dated 29 June 2021).

The Company is continuing its prospecting, geological mapping, grab sampling, and surface trenching and sampling programs along the prospective +7 km sedimentary-hosted copper horizon, which extends northward from the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit (the ”Okohongo Area”), and an examination of previously identified showings and occurrences up to 14 km south of the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit. The target prospective horizon, colloquially known as the “Okohongo Horizon”, occurs within the Lower Omao Formation (limestone, siltstone, dolomite), which is stratigraphically above the Nosib Group (sandstone, shale, conglomerate).

Michael Stares, President & CEO of White Metal, stated, “These results continue to impress, delivering very high copper and silver concentrations north and south of the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit. Clearly, there is significant opportunity to expand the current deposit along strike, which at this stage of exploration shows potential along a prospective horizon of more than 20 kilometres. Although White Metal remains focussed on progressing its flagship project, the Tower Stock Gold Project in Ontario, Canada, the Company will continue to advance the Okohongo Copper-Silver Project as one of our primary assets.”

A total of 37 rock grab samples were collected from target areas within north and south of the Okohongo Area during the most recent geological mapping and prospecting (Table 1). The Epunguwe and Epunguwe South Target Area (“Epunguwe”) is located about 4.3 km north of the Okohongo and covers a minimum strike length of 300 metres. The Okohongo West, Northeast, North and Okohongo samples are from the areas immediately around and within the Okohongo Area. The Okangura North, Okangura, and Okangura South area is located about 2.1 km southwest of the Okohongo and covers a minimum strike length of about 1 kilometre. The Okahwa area is located about 14 km south of Okohongo and covers a minimum strike length of about 250 metres.

Diagnos $ADK $DGNOF Announces the Opening of the #AI Assisted #Screening #Clinic at #Magrabi #Hospital with the Presence of the Undersecretary of the Ministry of #Health of #SaudiArabia

Diagnos Inc. (“DIAGNOS” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: ADK) (OTCQB: DGNOF) (FRA: 4D4A), a leader in early detection of critical health issues, is pleased to announce the official opening of the initial clinics at the Magrabi Hospital.

Dr. Ibrahim Al-Omar, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health for Investment, inaugurated last Wednesday the early detection unit for diabetic retinopathy operated by DIAGNOS’ AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology at Magrabi Eye, Ear and Dental Hospital in Riyadh, the first of its kind in the Kingdom. The inauguration was attended by the executive management of the Magrabi Group represented by Mr. Mutasim Alireza, Managing Director, Dr. Tariq Al-Hamad, Regional Operations Director, Senior Retinal Consultants, Yves-Stephane Couture, Vice President of DIAGNOS and members of the management of Kanhoor Company and Bayer Pharmaceuticals.

When asked, Dr. Walid bin Abdul Rahman Al-Turki, head of the retinal departments at Magrabi Group in Riyadh, stated that the aim of this unit is to examine the largest possible number of diabetic patients who are at risk of developing retinal diseases associated with them, which unfortunately may end in a gradual complete loss of vision. It is known that the incidence of diabetes in the Kingdom is about 27% of the population, which indicates the extent of the potential risk. At the conclusion of the interview, Dr. Walid Al-Turki stated that the initiative is in its infancy, and the Magrabi Group will develop and circulate it in all branches upon completion of its review.

Magrabi Hospitals and Centers has thirty-four branches in the Middle East; Twenty-two of them are in the Kingdom in Riyadh, Jeddah, Makkah, Dammam, Khobar, Al-Ahsa, Jubail, Asir, Jazan, Madinah, and Qassim.  Magrabi Hospitals and Centers Group was established in Jeddah in 1955 as the first hospital specialized in ophthalmology, and today it is the largest specialized medical network in the region.

The event was reported by the SABQ online newspaper (sabq.org) and the link is attached:

Magrabi Hospitals launches initiative for early screening for diabetic retinopathy

“We extend our best wishes to Magrabi hospitals.  We would also like to thank everyone in attendance for their time and efforts in making this project a reality. The main beneficiaries will be many thousands of diabetic patients whose vision can now be protected through this collaboration,” said André Larente, President of DIAGNOS.

White Metal $WHM Completes Initial Three #Drill Holes on Tower Stock #Gold Project, #Ontario

White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FRA: CGK1) (OTCMKTS: TNMLF) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first three diamond drill holes totaling 597 metres, of the total 3,000 metre program that is planned on the Tower Stock Gold Project (the “Project” or “Property”). The Project is located about 40 km west-northwest of the port city of Thunder Bay, Ontario and covers approximately 1,968 hectares.

The Company optioned the Tower Stock Project from a local Thunder Bay prospector (see NR dated June 25, 2020) and to date has completed a total of 3,083 metres of drilling on the Property. During last winter’s Phase 1 diamond drilling program and DASVISION IP survey, the company made several key advancements on the Property, including:

  • Ellen Zone – TM-21-94 was the first hole drilled at this target returning significant widths of gold mineralization resulting in an important new gold discovery. Hosted in volcanic host rocks, gold is associated with hydrothermal brecciation and sericite-chlorite-calcite-pyrite alteration and this intersection suggesting a connection between the U-V Zone in the northwest to the Bench Zone in the southeast (see NR dated April 20 2021)
  • Bench Zone – TM-21-97 was successful at extending the southwest down-dip extension of the Bench Zone returning two wide board intervals of gold mineralization. Gold mineralization is hosted within calcite-sericite-chlorite-pyrite altered volcanics and feldspar porphyry. These results show that the Bench Zone is open for expansion down-dip and along strike. (see NR dated April 20 2021)

The Current drilling program is focused on a combination of high priority targets including:

  • Additional drilling on the Ellen Zone, both to the northwest and to the southeast.
  • Infill drilling at the Bench Zone in areas of gold mineralization with widely spaced drilling from previous operators, ValGold.
  • Drill testing some high priority DASVISION IP Targets that have been interpreted by a third party geophysical consultant.

Figure 1: Tower Stock Gold Property Compilation Map – Current Diamond Drilling

A summary of the three holes completed to date at the Ellen Zone includes:

  • TM-21-98: drilled 20 metres to the southwest of TM-21-94 at 45Az and -50 dip and returned same/similar lithologies and similar hydrothermal sericitic-chlorite-pyrite alteration that hosts gold mineralization in hole TM-21-94.
  • TM-21-99: drilled 25 metres to the northwest of TM-21-94 at 45Az and -50 dip and also intersected the same/similar lithologies and hydrothermal sericitic-chlorite-pyrite alteration, as described above in holes TM-21-94 and TM-21-98. Of possible significance is the presence of microsyenite and feldspar porphyry dykes which are known to have a strong association to gold.
  • TM-21-100: drilled 25 metres to the southeast of TM-21-94 at 45Az and -50 dip. This hole also returned intercepts of similar lithologies and alteration as noted above, but unlike holes TM-21-94, TM-21-98, and TM-21-99 drill hole TM-21-100 intersected significant widths of coarse hydrothermal brecciation up to 8 metres wide., with sericite-chlorite altered black matrix, and 12 metres of very intense sericitic alteration with disseminated fuchsite.

Note that pyrite mineralization occurs over the entire length of all three holes.

The Company is also planning to drill a number of the other zones including:

  • T Zone: a WNW trending target defined from two 200 metre spaced ValGold holes that returned significant widths of gold mineralization but not drill tested between the two holes; and
  • S Zone: to extend historical drill hole TM-04-30 which ended with 1.22 g/t Au over 4.5 metres.

Michael Stares, President and CEO of White Metal, commented, “I am very pleased to have completed the four holes on the Tower Stock property to date and look forward to completing the 3,000 metre planned drill program. The  new core to date, especially on the Ellen Zone, looks very similar to the Original Ellen Zone hole discovery in TM-21-94. The new zone of alteration in hole TM-21-100 looks very encouraging and we are anxiously waiting for the assays from the lab to determine if the new zones will be comparable to the original Ellen Zone Discovery. We will also be testing some high priority 3D IP geophysical targets, reviewed and targeted by a third party, as we are interested in determining the source of these anomalies. I am also excited to start testing some of the historical drill holes on the Bench Zone that have not been previously followed up on.”
