Equity Metals Corporation (TSXV: EQTY) ("Equity") reports High-grade Gold-Silver drill intercepts from a previously unmodelled hangingwall zone on the eastern end of the Camp Vein Target at the Silver Queen project, B.C.

Highlight intervals Include:

  • In drill hole SQ21-047: a 0.4 metre interval grading 9.0g/t Au, 3,574g/t Ag, 12.7% Cu, 1.2% Pb and 5.5% Zn (5,692g/t AgEq) within a 3.2 metre interval averaging 1.8g/t Au, 679g/t Ag, 2.4% Cu, 0.2% Pb and 2.2% Zn (1,131g/t AgEq);
  • In drill hole SQ21-048: a 1.6 metre interval grading 2.9g/t Au, 4,032g/t Ag, 11.4% Cu, 0.5% Pb and 6.8% Zn (5,597g/t AgEq) within a 3.0 metre interval averaging 1.8g/t Au, 2091g/t Ag, 5.9% Cu, 0.4% Pb and 3.9% Zn (2,941g/t AgEq); and
  • In drill hole SQ21-048: a 0.8 metre interval grading 3.3g/t Au, 632g/t Ag, 3.3% Cu, 0.4% Pb and 2.6% Zn (1,299g/t AgEq) within a 2.8 metre interval averaging 1.0g/t Au, 192g/t Ag, 1.0% Cu, 0.4% Pb and 1.1% Zn (416g/t AgEq).

The intercepts correlate with the No. 5 Vein, which historically was identified in surface sampling and limited shallow drilling to the east of the holes reported here. The target remains open to the east where it transitions into the larger Sveinson Vein Target, which includes the historic No 5 and other veins. The current intercepts are relatively shallow (

Additional assay results from drill holes SQ21-042 to -046 and the extension of drill hole SQ21-018 returned multiple mineralized intercepts which continue to establish continuity of the four modelled veins on the eastern extension of the main Camp Vein target. Highlights include:

  • In drill hole SQ21-046: a 1.3 metre interval averaging 0.6g/t Au, 416g/t Ag, 1.9% Cu, 0.6% Pb and 14.1% Zn (1,196g/t AgEq), and
  • In drill hole SQ21-045: a 0.3 metre interval grading 1.2g/t Au, 1,434g/t Ag, 2.6% Cu, 0.3% Pb and 0.2% Zn (1,789g/t AgEq).

All assay results have now been received from the Phase IV drilling on the Camp Vein Target, which was completed in early Autumn 2021. A further 13 drill holes were drilled in November/December 2021 as part of Phase V drilling on the Sveinson Vein target which includes the historic No. 5 and other veins that have been only partially tested (see Figure 1). Assays are pending and anticipated over the next several weeks.

Crews have now mobilized to recommence drilling on the property, focusing initially on the NG-3 target. Detailed drilling, including the intercepts reported here, will be utilized in developing the Company's maiden resource for the Camp Vein target, expected in Q2 of 2022.

VP Exploration Rob Macdonald commented, "The identification of strongly enriched gold and copper, in addition to bonanza-grade silver, in multiple drill holes in these most recent assay results adds a significant new element to the exploration and development story evolving at the Silver Queen project. Recent drilling has continued to test extensions of the Camp Vein target farther to the east and into the Sveinson Vein Target, a cumulative strike length of over 1,250 metres. Assays from the Sveinson Vein target are pending and anticipated in the coming weeks. New drilling, starting this week, will test farther east into the NG-3 Vein target, which has seen only modest historical drilling."

About Silver Queen Project

The Silver Queen Project is a premier gold-silver property with over 100 years of historic exploration and development and is located adjacent to power, roads and rail with significant mining infrastructure that was developed under previous operators Bradina JV (Bralorne Mines) and Houston Metals Corp. (a Hunt Brothers company). The property contains an historic decline into the No. 3 Vein, camp infrastructure, and a maintained Tailings Facility.

The Silver Queen Property consists of 45 mineral claims, 17 crown grants, and two surface crown grants totalling 18,852ha with no underlying royalties. Mineralization is hosted by a series of epithermal veins distributed over a 6 sq km area. Most of the existing resource is hosted by the No. 3 Vein, which is traced by drilling for approximately 1.2km and to the southeast transitions into the NG-3 Vein close to the buried Itsit copper-molybdenum porphyry.

An initial NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate (see Note 1 below) was detailed in a News Release issued on July 16th, 2019, and using a CDN$100 NSR cut-off, reported a resource of:

  • Indicated - 244,000ozs AuEq: 85,000ozs Au, 5.2Mozs Ag, 5Mlbs Cu, 17Mlbs Pb and 114Mlbs Zn; and
  • Inferred - 193,000ozs AuEq: 64,000ozs Au, 4.7Mozs Ag, 5Mlbs Cu, 16Mlbs Pb and 92Mlbs Zn.

More than 20 different veins have been identified on the property, forming an extensive network of zoned Cretaceous- to Tertiary-age epithermal veins. The property remains largely under explored.

Manex provides exploration, administration, and corporate development services for Equity Metals' two major mineral properties, the Silver Queen Au-Ag-Zn-Cu project, located in central B.C., and the Monument Diamond project, located in Lac De Gras, NWT.

The Company owns 100% interest, with no underlying royalty, in the Silver Queen project, located along the Skeena Arch in the Omineca Mining Division, British Columbia. The property hosts high-grade, precious- and base-metal veins related to a buried porphyry system, which has been only partially delineated. The Company also has a controlling JV interest in the Monument Diamond project, NWT, strategically located in the Lac De Gras district within 40 km of both the Ekati and Diavik diamond mines. The project owners are Equity Metals Corporation (57.49%), Chris and Jeanne Jennings (22.11%); and Archon Minerals Ltd. (20.4%). Equity Metals is the operator of the project.

The Company also has royalty and working interests in other Canadian properties, which are being evaluated further to determine their value to the Company.

  1. The 2019 Silver Queen Resource Estimate was prepared following CIM definitions for classification of Mineral Resources and identified at a CDN$100/NSR cut-off, an indicated resource of 815Kt averaging 3.2g/t Au, 201g/t Ag, 1.0% Pb, 6.4% Zn and 0.26% Cu and an inferred resource of 801Kt averaging 2.5g/t Au, 184g/t Ag, 0.9% Pb, 5.2% Zn and 0.31% Cu. Grade capping on Ag and Zn was performed on 0.75m to 1.24m length composites. Au, Cu and Pb required no capping. ID3 was utilized for grade interpolation for Au and Ag while ID2 was utilized for Cu, Pb and Zn. Grade blocks were interpreted within constraining mineralized domains using and array of 3m x 1m x 3m blocks in the model. A bulk density of 3.56 t/m³ was used for all tonnage calculations. Approximate US$ two-year trailing average metal prices as follows were used: Au $1,300/oz, Ag $17/oz, Cu $3/lb, Pb $1.05/lb and Zn $1.35/lb with an exchange rate of US$0.77=C$1.00.

The C$100/tonne NSR cut-off grade value for the underground Mineral Resource was derived from mining costs of C$70/t, with process costs of C$20/t and G&A of C$10/t. Process recoveries used were Au 79%, Ag 80%, Cu 81%, Pb 75% and Zn 94%. AuEq and AgEq are based on the formula: NSR (CDN) = (Cu% * $57.58) + (Pb% * $19.16) + (Zn% * $30.88) +(Au g/t * $39.40) + (Ag g/t * $0.44) - $78.76.

Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves, do not have demonstrated economic viability and may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues. Inferred Mineral Resources have a lower level of confidence than Indicated Mineral Resources and may not be converted to a Mineral Reserve but may be upgraded to an Indicated Mineral Resource with continued exploration. The Mineral Resources were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines.

The Mineral Resource Estimate was prepared by Eugene Puritch, P.Eng., FEC, CET and Yungang Wu, P.Geo., of P&E Mining Consultants Inc. ("P&E") of Brampton, Ontario, Independent Qualified Persons ("QP"), as defined by National Instrument 43-101. P&E Mining suggests that an underground mining scenario is appropriate for the project at this stage and has recommended a CDN$100/tonne NSR cut-off value for the base-case resource estimate.

Robert Macdonald, MSc. P.Geo, is VP Exploration of Equity Metals Corporation and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. He is responsible for the supervision of the exploration on the Silver Queen project and for the preparation of the technical information in this disclosure.

Equity Identifies "Battery-grade" Silica for Potential Use in Emerging EV Market at the La Ronge Silica Project, Saskatchewan

Equity Identifies "Battery-grade" Silica for Potential Use in Emerging EV Market at the La Ronge Silica Project, Saskatchewan

Equity Metals Corporation (TSXV: EQTY) ("Equity") reports analyses and initial test work on its 100% controlled La Ronge Silica Project, an historic sand quarry located in central Saskatchewan, approximately 60 kilometers south-southeast of La Ronge, Saskatchewan and 210 kilometers west of Flin Flon, Manitoba.

Preliminary studies indicate the silica deposit may be developed into a simple and profitable, low-cost mining and washing operation to produce high-purity silica (>98% SiO2), a specialty product. The sand can be mined very efficiently due to its unconsolidated nature. High-purity silica can be converted into silicon, which is being tested by the electric-car industry to replace or augment carbon in battery anodes to dramatically extend the time between charging. Other possible conventional uses exist in the ceramics and glass industries.

Equity Intersects High-Grade Gold-Silver, Including 0.4 Metres of 22.5g/t Au, 3473g/t Ag, 5.6% Cu, 2.5% Pb and 1.8% Zn  in the Western Sveinson Target, Silver Queen Project, BC

Equity Intersects High-Grade Gold-Silver, Including 0.4 Metres of 22.5g/t Au, 3473g/t Ag, 5.6% Cu, 2.5% Pb and 1.8% Zn in the Western Sveinson Target, Silver Queen Project, BC

Equity Metals Corporation (TSXV: EQTY) ("Equity") reports drill results with multiple +500gt Ag-eq intervals (see attached table below) from the western portion of the Sveinson target on the Silver Queen property, BC. Highlights include hole SQ21-059 which returned multiple high-grade gold-silver-polymetallic intercepts, including:

  • a 0.4 metre interval grading 22.5g/t Au, 3273g/t Ag, 5.6% Cu, 2.5% Pb and 1.8% Zn (77.8g/t AuEq or 5,837g/t AgEq) within a 2.6 metre interval averaging 3.8g/t Au, 509g/t Ag, 0.8% Cu, 1.1% Pb and 4.3% Zn (14.2g/t AuEq or 1,064g/t AgEq); and
  • a 0.3 metre interval grading 59.3g/t Au, 78g/t Ag, 0.3% Pb and 2.0% Zn (61.5g/t AuEq or 4,612g/t AgEq) within a 1.0 metre interval averaging 17.5g/t Au, 25g/t Ag, 0.1% Pb and 1.8% Zn (18.2g/t AuEq or 1,368g/t AgEq).

The drill intercepts are from the final six of twelve core holes which tested the western half of the 1-kilometre long Sveinson target during the Fall of 2021 (see Figures 1 and 2). Drilling was widely spaced, but successfully intersected multiple shallow veins at less than 100 metres below surface, as well as deeper vein intercepts up to 400 metres below surface. Veins were intersected across the full 150 metre width of the Sveinson structural zone, with preliminary 3D modeling indicating continuity between these drill holes and the earlier released holes from the eastern end of the target area and previously reported holes from the Camp and No. 3 vein targets.
