Rogue Resources Inc. (TSXV:RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the filing of an independent NI 43-101 report on its Snow White Project located North of Massey, Ontario. The Technical Report entitled “NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Snow White Silica Property, Deagle Township, Massey, Ontario, Canada” dated effective January 8, 2018 was prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – “Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects” by Philip Vicker, MSc, P.Geo., an independent “qualified person” for the purpose of NI 43-101. The report was prepared in connection with the Company’s ongoing work program on the Snow White Project and does not disclose a resource estimate. A copy of the Technical Report is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR or on the Company’s website at www.rogueresources.ca.
“This report represents another important milestone for Rogue”, said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue Resources. “The Technical Report supports the presence of high quality quartz/silica that is suitable for silicon metal production. Rogue also believes the quartz has physical properties, including colour, that should be attractive to the filler and counter-top industries. Our plans are to aggressively advance this project including further definition of the silica zone, engage with local area contractors to develop the project and advance discussions with potential customers.”
The Snow White property consists of three staked mining claims representing approximately 96 hectares, located approximately 26 km northwest of the town of Massey, Ontario, which is about 125 km west of the City of Sudbury and 500 km north-northwest of Toronto. The Project currently has Class A and Class B Pit-Quarry-Aggregate Permits for unlimited annual silica/quartz production. Rogue has met with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry to discuss and verify the existing aggregate permit.
The area surrounding the Project is equipped with good infrastructure, an existing access road, and is also proximate to deep-water ports on Lake Huron that the Company expects could be used to access export markets. Rogue has been in contact with local contractors, as well as the port’s owners.
The work completed on Snow White at this stage is preliminary in nature and the limited drill data and metallurgical analysis are too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized even as mineral resources.
Similar to the past two years, the Company has developed a detailed plan for 2018, outlining the major events anticipated for the year.
