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.

The Sveinson target is a broad east-west-trending structural zone which forms the transition from the strongly silver-enriched Camp target to the west into the gold-enriched southern portion of the No. 3 target to the east. Four separate veins, initially modelled from the Camp target, project into the Sveinson target and were primary targets of this most recent drill testing.

VP Exploration Rob Macdonald commented, "These most recent drill results continue to establish the continuity of high-grade mineralization in the Camp/Sveinson targets, extending mineralization to over 1.25 kilometres in strike-length and not only confirming the presence of multiple mineralized structures, but also the high-grade tenor of both silver and gold mineralization."

The company also reports it has completed its Winter'22 drill program on the property. The 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. Logging and sampling are in progress. Assay results are pending and anticipated over the coming 6 to 8 weeks.

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 Extends the NG-3 Vein to over 300 Metres Strike-Length; Intersects 3.7m Averaging 4.9g/t Au, 75g/t Ag at Silver Queen Project, BC

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.

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 Shallow, High-Grade Gold-Silver, Including 0.5 Metres of 13.8g/t Au, 321g/t Ag, 0.8% Cu, 1.6% Pb and 12.4% Zn  in New Drilling on the Eastern Sveinson Target, Silver Queen Project, BC

Equity Intersects Shallow, High-Grade Gold-Silver, Including 0.5 Metres of 13.8g/t Au, 321g/t Ag, 0.8% Cu, 1.6% Pb and 12.4% Zn in New Drilling on the Eastern Sveinson Target, Silver Queen Project, BC

Equity Metals Corporation (TSXV: EQTY) ("Equity") reports drill results from the eastern portion of the Sveinson target on the Silver Queen property, BC. Additional assays are pending for the western portion of the Sveinson target and are expected in the coming weeks. The Sveinson target consists of a series of east-west striking veins that lie between the No. 3 and Camp targets. The new holes returned multiple high-grade gold-silver-polymetallic intercepts, including:

  • a 0.5 metre interval grading 13.8g/t Au, 321g/t Ag, 0.8% Cu,1.6% Pb and 12.4% Zn (1,956g/t AgEq) within a 1.6 metre interval averaging 5.1g/t Au, 120g/t Ag, 0.3% Cu,0.8% Pb and 4.0% Zn (711g/t AgEq) from drill hole SQ21-051; and
  • a 2.3 metre interval grading 2.8g/t Au, 37g/t Ag, 1.7% Pb and 5.9% Zn (538g/t AgEq) within a 5.3 metre interval averaging 1.9g/t Au, 23g/t Ag,1.0% Pb and 3.2% Zn (324g/t AgEq) from drill hole SQ21-052.

The drill intercepts are from the first six of twelve core holes which tested the eastern 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 several deeper vein intercepts at over 350 metres below surface. Veins were intersected across the full 150-metre width of the Sveinson structural zone, with preliminary 3D modeling indicating continuity between holes.

Brian Leni: Precious Metals Thesis is "Overwhelming" — Be Picky, Buy Best of the Bestyoutu.be

Now trading just above US$1,800 per ounce, the gold price isn't performing as well as some investors would like. But for Brian Leni, founder of Junior Stock Review, the outlook remains bright.

"To me the value in the precious metals and the overall precious metals thesis is just so strong it's overwhelming," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Leni describes himself as a value investor, and emphasized that for him the precious metals story isn't a question of "if," it's a question of "when" — the key is picking the right companies and being ready to wait.

Turmoil continues to rock the broader markets, and while the gold price has also suffered declines, George Salamis believes it's holding up well compared to other assets.

"Gold has hung in there pretty well relative to other investments — other commodities, currencies. I think it's held its own," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Salamis, who is the president and CEO of Integra Resources (TSXV:ITR,NYSEAMERICAN:ITRG), explained that he also sees gold miners doing well, but thinks volatility is stopping them from making moves.
