Commander Resources Ltd. (TSXV: CMD) ("Commander") is pleased to provide results from a sampling program on the Sabin project (the "Sabin Property") located in northwest Ontario, Canada, some ten kilometres north of the community of Savant Lake. Work was conducted in the fall of 2021 and focused on follow-up prospecting of the newly recognized intrusive-hosted Quarry Gold Zone. The Sabin property is centered on extensive VMS-style alteration and mineralization and where work in 2020-2021 has also outlined a potential bulk tonnage-style gold target within the Patterson Lake Stock.


  • Follow-up sampling of the Quarry Gold Zone returns grab samples up to 1.5 g/t gold.
  • Intrusive-hosted gold is now documented over an area of 1 km2.
  • Up to 20 line-km of Induced Polarization survey are planned to cover the new gold zones as well as the nearby Kash VMS zones.

Quarry Gold Zone

The original Quarry Gold Zone has limited historical work comprising surface sampling and two short, small-diameter (winkie) prospecting holes. Outcrop occurs in the bottom of a gravel pit where 10-15 m of strike is exposed and a minimum width of 25-35 m. The target coincides with a single VTEM conductor within a broad area of low resistivity. The showing, hosted within a granodiorite, comprises sheeted intensely altered (quartz-sericite-pyrite-iron carbonate) shear zones with extension quartz veins emanating from the shears.

Eight additional grab samples collected in 2021 expanded the target some 150 m to the northeast and outlined a second zone 1 km to the east. Four samples were greater than 0.5 g/t gold with a high value of 1.5 g/t gold. Bedrock exposure is extremely poor and, where present, is dominated by fresh granodiorite. Gold mineralized rocks are associated with sheared and veined granodiorite in recessive exposures adjacent to larger prominent outcrops. (Figure 1)

Future work planned for 2022 at Sabin will include an expanded prospecting and sampling program and up to 20 line-km of Induced Polarization survey to cover the newly discovered gold zones and the nearby Kash VMS zones.

About the Sabin Property

The Sabin property is in the Sturgeon Lake greenstone belt which hosts significant polymetallic VMS deposits and past-producing mines some 60 km to the south. The Sabin property is underlain by intermediate and felsic volcanic units that exhibit widespread alteration comprised of garnet, staurolite, sillimanite and sericite, metamorphic mineralogy typical of metamorphosed VMS environments. The Quarry Showing is an occurrence that opens the potential for intrusion-hosted orogenic gold mineralization within the large Patterson Lake Stock.

Commander (formerly Major General) acquired the property through a purchase agreement with UMEX Mining Corp. in 1990 and holds a 100% interest in the property except for two small internal claim parcels that are subject to a participating interest with Glencore Canada Corporation (formerly Noranda) who currently hold 41.5% and 33.3%. UMEX retains a partially capped 2.5% NSR over the core of the property that would be reduced to 1% following $225,000 of royalty payments. The Quarry Gold Zone is 100% owned by Commander and is unencumbered by participating or royalty interests.

Figure 1: Sabin property Geology and Samples


Grab rock samples are selective by nature and may not represent the true grade or style of mineralization. Samples were collected in the field by Stephen Wetherup P. Geo. Analytical work was completed by Activation Laboratories in Dryden, Ontario. Gold was analyzed by fire assay fusion of a 30-gram aliquot and other elements by ICP-MS from a 4-acid digestion.

Historical work on the Sabin property was conducted by exploration professionals working for a major company (UMEX Mining Corp.) widely reputed as competent, utilizing methodology accepted and relied upon as standard industry practice at the time. Commander has an extensive database of original exploration data including assay certificates, drill logs and geological mapping and observations. Work and sampling by Commander have relocated some drill collars and surface sampling by Commander is generally in line with original sample data. Historical drill core is not available, and the Company is treating this data as valid for exploration purposes, but not compliant with NI43-101 Standards of Disclosure for use in future resource estimates.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Bounces Back, Experts Talk Recession Question

Weekly August

After dipping briefly below the US$1,700 per ounce mark in mid-July, gold is bouncing back.

The yellow metal has made a big move since last week's US Federal Reserve meeting, nearly making it to US$1,800. It was back down around US$1,775 at the time of this writing on Friday (August 5) afternoon.

The Fed hiked interest rates last week by 75 basis points, as was widely expected by market participants. Major indexes have been on the rise, which Lobo Tiggre of told me is unsurprising.

VIDEO — Rick Rule: Glad to See Gold on Sale, "Solidly Bullish" on Uranium

Rick Rule Symposium

Gold has seen ups and downs this summer, but is solidly below its Q1 peak of over US$2,000 per ounce.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium in Florida, Rick Rule, the host of the event and proprietor at Rule Investment Media, said he sees the lack of interest in the yellow metal as positive.

"The fact that people are disinterested in gold, and disinterested in resources, I think is a wonderful thing because they're on sale," he explained, reminding listeners that he favors a contrarian approach to the markets.

Is Gold a Buy? Jim Cramer Says Timing Looks "Perfect"

As volatility reigns supreme across equity markets, many analysts are saying that gold’s fall below US$1,800 per ounce means it’s a good time to buy before the price goes up.

Gold's dip under that threshold began at the beginning of July, and is the first time the yellow metal has slipped below and held at that level since late 2021. The decline comes after gold breached US$2,000 in early March.

Many market participants remain resolute that it’s only a matter of time before gold regains its lost momentum, and that sentiment was echoed on Wednesday (August 3) by well-known TV personality Jim Cramer during the "Off the Charts" segment of his “Mad Money” investing show on CNBC.

Types of Gold Deposits in Australia

As the second largest gold-producing country in the world, Australia also boasts the largest gold mine reserves. In order to make more strategic decisions, investors will stand to benefit from understanding Australia's distinctive geography, specifically the types of gold deposits found in the country.

Australia has a rich history in mining. One of the biggest gold rushes took place in New South Wales, Australia in 1851, which later extended to the province of Victoria. Today, Victoria and its successful gold mines stand as some of the highest-yielding and high-grade resources. Victoria’s 13 goldfields have each produced over one million ounces of gold, most of which were from the world-class Fosterville deposit, Ballarat, Costerfield and Stawell.
