Precious Metals

Equity Metals Corporation (TSXV: EQTY) ("Equity") reports several intersections of high-grade gold and silver from six holes which tested the NG-3 target area on the Silver Queen property, BC. Equity's drilling has now confirmed the extension of the NG-3 Vein to over 300 metres of strike and to depths of up to 240 metres below surface. The holes have established internal continuity between historic intercepts drilled by previous management and earlier drilling by Equity, and mineralization remains open along strike and dip.

Drilling Highlights:

  • a 1.5 metre interval grading 11.7g/t Au, 167g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu, 0.1% Pb and 0.2% Zn (14.5g/t AuEq or 1,089g/t AgEq) within a 3.7 metre interval averaging 4.9g/t Au, 75g/t Ag, 0.2% Cu, 0.1% Pb and 0.3% Zn (6.3g/t AuEq or 472g/t AgEq) from drill hole SQ22-067; and
  • a 0.3 metre interval grading 14.2g/t Au, 82g/t Ag, 0.2% Cu, 0.3% Pb and 0.2% Zn (15.8g/t AuEq or 1,185g/t AgEq) within a 1.2 metre interval averaging 3.7g/t Au, 31g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu, 0.1% Pb and 0.1% Zn (4.3g/t AuEq or 322g/t AgEq) from drill hole SQ22-069.

The NG-3 vein is the eastern segment of a 2.5 km-long east-west trending composite structure which includes the Camp Vein, Sveinson and parts of the No. 3 Vein targets (see Figure 1). Drilling on the property by Equity Metals over the last 18 months of exploration has confirmed multiple mineralized veins along the full strike-length of the host structural and tested some portions to depths of up to 400 metres below surface. Numerous targets within the structure zone remain to be extended laterally and to depth, which will form the basis of future exploration drilling on the property in 2022.

Drilling on the eastern end of the NG-3 target also intersected 89.3m averaging 0.1% Au, 2.1g/t Ag, 0.2% Cu and 0.04% Mo in drill hole SQ22-071 starting at 389.8 metres down hole. The mineralized interval is characterized by increased quartz veining, strong sericite-alteration with elevated pyrite content and correlates with the transition into the previously identified Itsit Porphyry system.

Vice-President of Exploration, Rob Macdonald, commented, "Drilling continues to return high-grade gold and silver values at multiple target areas along the main 2.5 km-long mineralized corridor targeted by Equity over the previous 18 months of drilling on the Silver Queen property. The confirmation of Cu-Mo-porphyry -styled mineralization at the Itsit target further highlights the presence of a large and widespread Epithermal/Porphyry mineralizing system. Multiple vein targets remain untested throughout the property and numerous veins require follow-up drilling to extend mineralization both laterally and to depth as Equity continues its systematic evaluation of this district-scale property."

The Winter '22 program consisted of 13 core holes totaling 4,382 metres, including six holes (2,431m) at the NG-3 target and seven holes (1,931m) on the Camp and Sveinson targets. Assay results are pending and anticipated in the coming days for the remaining four holes, three which tested the west side of the Camp target and a single hole which is a step-out from a high-grade intercepts in the Sveinson target.

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. An initial NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate was detailed in a News Release issued on July 16th, 2019 and is hosted by the No. 3 Vein, which is traced by drilling for approximately 1.2km and then to the southeast where it transitions into the NG-3 Vein close to the buried Itsit copper-molybdenum porphyry.

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.

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.

VIDEO — Gary Wagner: Gold Will Hit Another Record, but Rally Close to Final Leg

Gary Wagner: Gold Will Hit a Another Record, but Rally Close to Final Leg youtu.be

The US Federal Reserve is hiking interest rates in a bid to curb inflation, but according to Gary Wagner, executive producer at TheGoldForecast.com, that's not what will tame high prices.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the recent Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), Wagner, who also writes for Kitco Media, explained that supply chain issues are a bigger part of the problem.

"We've never had a point when we've had this kind of inflationary pressure and not had interest rates that are at least half to three-quarters the level of inflation. In other words, if inflation's running at 10 percent, interest rates are running at 5 to 8 percent," he said during an interview on the sidelines of the show.
