Cache Exploration Inc. (the “Company”, or “Cache”), (TSXV:CAY) is pleased to announce the complete assay results of the 2017 summer drill program at its 100% wholly owned Kiyuk Lake project in Nunavut.
Significant Release Highlights:

  • – KI17-004 at Rusty Zone returned 122m at 1.8 g/t gold from 188m down-hole in the Rusty Zone- KI17-005 at newly discovered East Gold Point Zone intersected:
    • – 64m at 1.5 g/t gold from 35m and- 10m of 6.5 g/t gold from 248m

    – Prospecting samples returned:

    • – 5.57 g/t gold from west of the Rusty Zone- 5.60 g/t gold grab sample from north of Kiyuk Lake and 1.1km from the newly identified Nansen target area

VP Exploration, Chris Pennimpede Comments:
“The discovery at East Gold Point is significant as it confirms that the extensive polymictic conglomerate unit is a favorable host to gold mineralization. Further exploration will continue to target these magnetite destructive features where they correspond with positive surface geochemical results in gold or pathfinder elements.
Additionally, the discovery of the Nansen target area through grid till sampling and prospecting, north of Kiyuk Lake, is also hosted in the same magnetitic polymictic conglomerate that hosts Gold Point and East Gold Point adding further to the prospective nature of this unit which has a 13km strike length extending on either side of Kiyuk Lake.
We are thrilled with the multiple new discoveries resulting from our modest 2017 program”.
Rusty Zone
KI17-004 intersected a broad zone of brecciated cross bedded sandstone with actinolinte-carbonate-magnetite infill with abundant pyrrhotite and visible gold from 188m down hole. The hole ended in mineralization at 310m down hole. KI17-004 tested the depth extension of mineralization intersected in the discovery hole and previous drill holes in the north part of the Rusty zone. This hole succeeded in increasing the depth of known gold mineralization from surface to 200m in depth below surface. The mineralized zone remains open at depth.
East Gold Point
KI17-005, East Gold Point, is located 700m to the east of the Gold Point zone. This previously untested target was defined by coincidence of magnetite destructive features observed in ground magnetic data and the presence of mineralized boulders on surface. East Gold Point represents a ‘proof of concept’ new discovery that confirms the prospective potential of structures that cross cut the polymictic conglomerate unit. Success in intercepting significant gold mineralization in the first drill hole to target the northern most extent of this structure is a positive result for further development of gold mineralization models at the Kiyuk Lake project. The strike length of the magnetite destructive features is yet to be determined and will require further ground magnetic surveying to define and constrain their extent.

Drill Results Summary
New assay results from drilling:

Hole IDFrom (m)To (m)Length (m)Gold (g/t)Zone

KI17-005248258106.5104East Gold Point

CEO Jack Bal comments:
“Our 2017 drill program has delivered extremely impressive results which confirmed and extended a known target and discovered significant gold mineralization at a new target.
At Rusty Zone we not only confirmed that mineralization extends to 200m below surface but also intersected a previously unknown high-grade phase of 8m of 26.4 g/t gold. At the same time, we discovered extensive mineralization at East Gold Point with 64 m at 1.46 g/t gold.
Our prospecting returned two +5 g/t gold samples and our till campaign isolated two new anomalous areas that offer compelling evidence for further possible discovery.
All in all, this drill program has revealed the potential for Kiyuk Lake to be recognised as an extensive gold camp.
I wish to thank Cache VP Ex, Chris Pennimpede and his technical team for an incredible job.”
Cache would like to thank CSA Global for its successful operation of the 2017 summer drill program at Kiyuk Lake.
QA/QC, and Till and Core Sampling Protocols
One to two kilogram till samples collected in the field were screened to -230 mesh at the Bureau Veritas Minerals laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia before being digested using a dilute aqua regia digestion of a 30g subsample (code AQ252) and analyzed by ICP-MS for a suite of 37 elements, including gold. Data accuracy and precision is monitored with certified reference materials submitted with the samples and field duplicates, as well as through monitoring of laboratory internal standards and pulp duplicates.
Drill core and rock samples are bagged and sealed and submitted to SGS in Red Lake, Ontario for sample preparation. Sample preparation involves crushing 2m lengths of split drill core to a nominal 75% passing 2mm, followed by pulverization of a 250-g split to a nominal 85% passing 75 microns. Gold analysis is completed in the SGS Red Lake lab with a 50g fire assay and AAS finish (code GE-FAA515). Samples returning >10g/t Au are re-assayed with a gravimetric finish (code GO-FAG505). Control samples (certified reference materials, coarse blanks and 1/4 core duplicates) were inserted on a regular basis. Laboratory internal standards, coarse crush duplicates and pulp duplicates are also monitored. Results are assessed for accuracy, precision and contamination on an ongoing basis.
