Collective Mining Induced Polarization Survey at San Antonio Outlines Significant Targets for Follow Up Drilling

Collective Mining Induced Polarization Survey at San Antonio Outlines Significant Targets for Follow Up Drilling

Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) ("Collective" or the "Company") is pleased to announce completion of an Induced Polarization, ground geophysical survey on part of its San Antonio project located in Caldas, Colombia. The survey area covered 2.75 square kilometres and encompasses the previously defined, priority targets named Pound and Dollar. The Company previously announced that it had made a significant grassroot drilling discovery at Pound target as part of its Phase I program at San Antonio (see press release dated October 27, 2021).

Highlights (Figures 1 to 3)

  • The Pound target is coincident with a circular chargeability anomaly present at shallow depths and covering a diameter of 600 metres . Previous reconnaissance drilling of two holes returned broad, continuous, mineralized intercepts from surface of 710 metres grading 0.53 g/t AuEq (SAC-6) and 750 metres @ 0.41 g/t AuEq (SAC-8). The Pound intercepts relate to mineralization hosted within breccia, porphyry and schist rocks. The IP work clearly demonstrates that the contact zone and the mineralized schist body are open to the north, south and east and can be tested from relatively shallow elevations.
  • Importantly, both drill holes into the Pound target ended in mineralization in the schist body with copper and molybdenum grades increasing at depth and including 70 metres at 0.12% copper in SAC-6 and 133 metres @ 0.15% copper in SAC-8.

  • The chargeability IP data at Pound also demonstrates potential extensions of the mineralized breccia body to the NNW for at least another 800 metres.

  • IP data at the Dollar target highlights chargeability anomalies directly to the west and east of the area previously drill tested in the Phase I campaign.

    • The western anomaly is located approximately 300 metres below surface and covers an area measuring 600 metres across by 500 metres vertical . Previous drilling only clipped the edge of this body in two holes; both of which demonstrate increasingly, porphyry related, potassic alteration within a quartz diorite porphyry near the end of each hole. Peripheral drilling at Dollar previously intersected 74 metres grading 0.62 g/t gold equivalent from a quartz magnetite stockwork in the quartz diorite porphyry.

    • The more subtle porphyry shaped eastern anomaly is located approximately 75 metres below surface and measures 250 metres across by 900 metres vertical . No previous drill testing was conducted within this anomaly but modelling of grade shells from prior holes indicate an eastern dip to the highest-grade mineralization towards the anomaly.

  • The target extensions at Pound and new targets at Dollar will be followed up with diamond drilling programs during the second half of 2022.

"The IP survey in San Antonio clearly outlines exciting targets for follow up drilling. At the Pound target, there is now a clear opportunity to expand the wide and continuous zones of mineralization previously intersected from surface with further drilling into the mineralized schist and along northern extensions to the breccia. At the Dollar target, our previous drilling only clipped the edge of the highly chargeable western anomaly and internal modelling of grade shells from drilling are pointing directly to the untested eastern anomaly. Drill planning is already underway for a follow up program to begin in the second half of 2022," commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Awaits Fed Meeting, Who's Funding Juniors Right Now?

The gold price remained firmly above US$1,900 per ounce this week, continuing an upward trajectory that started around the beginning of November. By Friday's (January 27) close, the yellow metal was at about US$1,927 per ounce.

Market participants were waiting for the latest PCE Price Index data, which looks at personal consumption expenditures — in other words, the prices that people in the US pay for goods and services. Released at the end of the week, the new numbers show that core PCE, which excludes food and energy, rose 4.4 percent year-on-year in December and 0.3 percent month-on-month.

Attention is now shifting to the US Federal Reserve's next meeting, which is scheduled to run from January 31 to February 1. Speculation is rife that the central bank will hike by only a quarter of a percentage point, but for now we'll have to wait and see.

Gold Mining in Nunavut: Tapping into Canada's Frontier Mining Jurisdiction

As Canada's last frontier for mineral exploration, Nunavut is also one of the most promising. Covering an area roughly the size of Western Europe, the region is incredibly rich in mineral resources, including iron ore, diamonds and oil and gas, plus a wealth of critical minerals.

In addition to this impressive mineral inventory, gold is arguably Nunavut's greatest mineral resource. Along with two current producing gold mines, the territory hosts multiple gold deposits at various stages of exploration, construction and development.

One of the most promising regions for gold exploration and discovery in Nunavut sits proximal to the Rankin Inlet. Primarily, this promise is because it hosts Canada's second largest greenstone belt — geologic formations known for having incredibly rich deposits of gold. Significant exploration and discovery has already occurred in this area, yielding both valuable data and improved geological models that can be leveraged by newcomers to the area.

Mink Ventures' Exploration Progress from Its Montcalm Ni-Cu-Co Project

Mink Ventures' Exploration Progress from Its Montcalm Ni-Cu-Co Project

Mink Ventures Corporation (TSXV: MINK) ("Mink" or the "Company") today announced an exploration progress update from its 40 km2 Montcalm nickel copper cobalt project, located adjacent to Glencore's historical Montcalm Mine, 65 km northwest of Timmins, Ontario. The Montcalm Mine had historical production of approximately 3.93 million tonnes of ore grading 1.25% Ni, 0.67% Cu and 0.051% Co. (Ontario Geological Survey, Atkinson, 2010). In just over two weeks since beginning its exploration program, the Company has completed the following at its Montcalm Project (see accompanying Fig.2).

  • Completed multiple, borehole induced polarization (IP) surveys, as well as cross hole configurations, within the western portion of the Hook Zone, on five, priority, historical drill holes where unexplained electromagnetic (EM) targets remain relevant. The new, advanced borehole IP technology being utilized here can seek for a 250-meter radius around a borehole and deeper still from the bottom of a hole for both massive and disseminated targets and model these zones in 3D.
  • Outlined a number of significant targets of interest from the preliminary field data from the borehole IP survey. The field portion of the borehole surveying will be completed within the week and more detailed processing of the data will continue to prioritize targets for Mink's diamond drill program.
  • Applied to the Ontario Government's Critical Minerals Innovation Fund for a non-dilutive, $200,000 grant to build upon the success of Mink's Phase 1, proof-of-concept borehole IP survey, with a Phase 2 and Phase 3 survey program within or proximal to the Hook Zone. These surveys can seek massive and disseminated mineralization cost-effectively and will continue to be an important new exploration tool at Montcalm.
  • Mobilized a line-cutting and surface IP crew to evaluate the Southern Target Area of the project. A number of untested historical EM targets and magnetic anomalies identified by previous operators and government surveys will be the focus of this program and will better refine these targets for drill testing. The surface IP survey will begin immediately once the borehole IP work to the north is completed and will help refine and prioritize these targets.
  • Secured a diamond drill contractor for a phase 1 drill program which will follow in late February upon the completion of the geophysical surveys.

Significant advances in IP geophysical technology have enabled deeper penetrating systems with incredible clarity. The new IP systems allow for the production of 3D geophysical models of mineralized zones. Mink is benefitting from the work of previous operators who left numerous EM targets unexplained or untested in historical holes; these holes can now be probed with the new borehole IP technology. Borehole IP systems now have the capability to see a 250 meters radius around a bore hole and significantly below the end of the drill hole, which is an extremely cost-effective way of evaluating both disseminated and more massive targets at depth. The deepest known Ni Cu Co lenses at the Montcalm Mine are known to extend from approximately 250 to 400 meters vertical depth, which is well beyond the capability of many older surface EM systems.
