FireFox Gold Corp. (TSXV:FFOX) (OTCQB:FFOXF) ("FireFox" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on exploration at its 100%-controlled Sarvi and Mustajärvi gold projects in Lapland, Finland. FireFox has drilled approximately 8,319m of diamond core to date in the 2021-2022 drill program on the Jeesiö, Mustajärvi, and Sarvi Projects, including the first 12 holes at Sarvi. This release includes a summary of drill results from the first five widely spaced holes across the northern section of the Sarvi target area (See Figure 1: https:bit.ly3MU7CQR

This program also includes new drilling at the Mustajärvi Project, where possible extensions to the high-grade shear-zone-hosted gold mineralization have been tested at the East Target and Gabbro Target. The new drilling includes 10 holes, five holes at the East Target and five holes at the Gabbro Target. Results are pending for all of these recent holes.

The first hole at Sarvi, 22SA001, intersected low grade but significant gold mineralization across several intervals in an apparent downdip extension of the anomalous gold encountered in FireFox's first trenches in the area (see Company news release dated January 20, 2022). The rocks in this area are tholeiitic basalt, graphite tuff, and iron formation, which are interpreted to straddle the contact with the Porkonen Formation. This is the formation that hosts much of the Kiistala Shear Zone and Kittilä Mine to the west and northwest from Sarvi.

The gold zones in this hole were often accompanied by highly elevated silver and base metals, as summarized below:

  • 17.0m at 0.134 g/t Au from 111.0m downhole depth, which was part of a thicker interval of high silver (25.5m at 1.94 g/t Ag);
  • 2.60m at 0.189 g/t Au from 145.0m downhole and 7.20m at 0.119 g/t Au from 158.0m downhole, both of which are within an interval of 45.0m of elevated silver (1.29 g/t Au);
  • Additional narrow intervals of highly anomalous gold, including 1.0m at 0.42 g/t Au from 218.0m downhole; and
  • Associated enrichment in arsenic (As), antimony (Sb), bismuth (Bi), copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo), tellurium (Te), zinc (Zn), and other elements.

"The team has drilled at four separate target areas during this campaign, and it is appropriate to finish up at Sarvi and Mustajärvi. The initial results at Sarvi are encouraging as we encountered significant low-grade gold and silver mineralization associated with graphite-bearing tuffites and iron formation, a favorable setting for gold mineralization in Lapland. Our first-ever drill hole at Sarvi confirmed the anomalous gold encountered in our trenches, and we have many other targets to test based on the base-of-till and magnetic anomalies to the southeast from these first drill holes. It is also important that we have drilled significant new step outs in the East Target and Gabbro at Mustajärvi. We look forward to receipt of the remainder of our assays from drilling at both projects during the summer," commented Carl Löfberg, President and CEO of FireFox.

Sarvi Program Details

The first drill campaign at Sarvi included 12 widely spaced drill holes totaling 2327.8 metres. The FireFox team targeted these holes based on both geochemical anomalies from base-of-till (BOT) sampling and prospective structural features interpreted from detailed geophysical data. Results for the 5 holes in the northwest portion of the original Sarvi permit are presented here.

Portions of the tholeiitic basalt, mafic (graphite) tuff, and banded iron formation that are interpreted to underlie the northwestern portion of the Sarvi Project are believed to be part of the Porkonen Formation. The Kiistila Shear Zone, which hosts Agnico Eagle's Kittilä Mine, cuts through the Porkonen Formation to the northwest from the Sarvi Project. FireFox geologists noted anomalous Au, Ag, As, Sb, Bi, Cu, Mo, Zn, and other elements in the BOT sampling in this part of the Sarvi Project. Prospecting also revealed localized areas of outcrop exhibiting silicification, partially oxidized sulfide minerals (gossan), and highly anomalous As and base metals. Follow-up trenching in 2021 confirmed the presence of elevated gold and associated elements, highlighted by 18.0m averaging 0.23 g/t Au. Drill hole 22SA001 confirms the continuation of this low-grade gold zone to depth.

The first drill hole passed through graphite-bearing tuff and schists in the upper portion of the hole with occasional semi-massive to massive pyrrhotite (lesser pyrite) that appear to be exhalative in nature. The exhalate horizons are sometimes cut by iron-carbonate veins and stockworks. The best gold zone is 17.0m at 0.134 g/t, but much of the upper portion of the hole is anomalous in Au, and gold enrichment is always associated with elevated Ag, As, Sb, Bi, Cu, Mo, Te, and Zn. At greater depths in the hole, sphalerite (zinc sulfide) is associated with the iron-carbonate veining. Copper and zinc are also broadly elevated in the hole, but isolated maximum values in the hole are 0.2% for Cu and 0.54% for Zn.

Below the anomalous sulfide-rich zones in the tuff and schists the drill hole passed into more massive mafic volcanics without abundant sulfides. Given the wide spaced drilling and limited sampling in the area so far, this target remains open in all directions for follow-up exploration.

Drill holes 22SA002, 003, and 004 were aimed at various anomalies from till and heavy mineral sampling. These holes penetrated similar volcanic geology, but with more massive volcanic units and much less evidence of exhalite or sulfide mineralization. Each of the holes exhibited anomalous geochemistry in pathfinder elements but without corresponding significant enrichment in gold or silver.

Drill hole 22SA005 was located farther to the northeast to test anomalous BOT geochemistry and an interpreted structure. The hole encountered deeper water black shales and graphitic mudstones, but the hole collapsed in a fault zone and was terminated at 172m depth. The final sample in the hole assayed 31.2 g/t silver, but without corresponding enrichment in gold.

The remaining drill holes at Sarvi were drilled in a different geological setting on the southeastern third of the permit area. The geology in that area is interpreted to be dominated by mafic volcanics, volcaniclastics, graphite schists, and sedimentary rocks. Most of the drilling in that area was targeted on geochemical BOT anomalies associated with magnetic lows and interpreted faults, some of which are projected from areas to the south being explored by Rupert Resources and B2 Gold. The results for holes 22SA006 to 22SA012 are not yet complete and will be reported separately.

Mustajärvi Update

Following the completion of the drilling at Sarvi, FireFox moved the drill rig back to the Mustajärvi Project. On April 5, 2022, FireFox reported results from two holes in the high-grade zone at the Northeast Target and one shallow hole in the East Target. The team has completed 10 additional holes at Mustajärvi so far with several more holes pending. The new drilling includes five holes into the East Target and five holes into the Gabbro Zone on the western end of the property (see Figure 2:

The focus of this drill campaign has been on new targets with significant potential to extend the thickness and strike length of known gold mineralization at Mustajärvi. The East Target has already yielded several significant intercepts of near-surface gold, such as4.0m averaging 6.35 g/t of Au from 13.6m down hole, including 0.8m at 25.93 g/t Au (see Company news releases dated January 25 and April 5, 2022).

The program is on-going and expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Methodology & Quality Assurance

The core was transported from the rig to the Company´s core storage facility in Sodankylä, where FireFox's exploration team conducted the geological and geotechnical logging and selected the assay intervals. Assay intervals were generally 1 metre but in some circumstances were modified according to lithological boundaries and other factors. FireFox geologists maintained chain of custody and sampling procedures according to best industry practice and with due attention to quality assurance and quality control, including sampling field duplicates and insertion of certified standard and blank samples.

FireFox team members transported the samples to an ALS sample prep lab in Sodankylä. The samples were sawed then crushed to -2 mm, split and pulverized into 1kg pulps, before being shipped to the ALS facility in Rosia Montana, Romania for gold by fire assay of 50 gm aliquots with AAS finish (method Au-AA24). Other elements, altogether 48, were measured after four-acid digestion by ICP-AES and ICP-MS (method ME-MS61) at the ALS facility located in Loughrea, Ireland.

ALS Laboratories is a leading international provider of assay and analytical data to the mining industry. All ALS geochemical hub laboratories, including the Irish facility, are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for specific analytical procedures. The Firefox QA/QC program consists of insertion of certificated standard material and blanks inserted by Firefox into the analytical batches did not show deviations from recommended values.

FireFox Gold


FireFox Gold Corp (TSXV:FFOX,FSE:A2PDU7) is a resource exploration company with a portfolio of highly-prospective gold projects in Finland. FireFox Gold is a leading tenement holder and one of only a handful of companies actively exploring for gold in Finland’s Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB). The CLGB is an under-explored orogenic gold belt comparable in size to some of the world’s most notable gold-bearing greenstone belts, and the site of a new gold rush. The gold belt may be under-explored, but Finland’s mining industry is well established. The Nordic nation consistently ranks as one of the world’s top mining jurisdictions.

Recent notable discoveries made in the belt by Rupert Resources Ltd (TSX:RUP) and Aurion Resources Ltd (TSXV:AU) are driving a gold rush atmosphere. These discoveries have attracted the interest and investment from major players including Agnico Eagle Mines (NYSE:AEM,TSX:AEM), Kinross Gold Corporation (TSX:K,NYSE:KGC) and B2Gold Corp. (TSX:BTO). Agnico Eagle owns the Kittilä underground gold mine, located in the CLGB, which has gold reserves of 4.4 million ounces, produces about 175,000 ounces of gold annually and has a 17-year mine life. Kinross, B2Gold and others have entered the field via agreements with the tenement-controlling juniors. In March 2021, FireFox expanded its tenements holdings to over 800 square kilometres in strategic locations for gold exploration within the CLGB, creating new opportunities for advancement through both exploration and strategic partnerships.

FireFox Gold’s flagship property, the Jeesiö gold project, may offer a springboard to further discoveries in the CLGB. At Jeesiö, FireFox is exploring two high-priority target areas that are bracketed by Aurion’s Risti and Launi gold discoveries. The company’s 2021 program for Jeesiö started with the first extensive bottom-of-till (BOT) sampling to test below the glacial cover at the Utsamo target, where early sampling returned up to 4.6g/t gold at surface. Results from this work, combined with the 2020 detailed geophysics, is expected to identify priority drill targets for the follow-up diamond drilling program. Detailed BOT sampling combined with geophysics is a demonstrated exploration path that has led to target delineation and discovery in other parts of the CLGB.

FireFox Gold is led by a team of capital market and mining professionals including Finnish team members well versed in the nation’s mining laws and geologic potential.

Company Highlights

  • Finland ranked first in the Fraser Institute mining survey in 2017, has a strong mining tradition, clearly defined mining laws and world-leading geological technical databases.
  • CLGB is an underexplored gold belt highly prospective for numerous multi-million-ounce discoveries.
  • FireFox is focused solely on gold in Finland, controlling approximately 800 square kilometres of key exploration ground in the CLGB.
  • The recently expanded land position gives FireFox two paths to discovery – direct exploration and joint venture.
  • Detailed 2021 exploration program underway at the Jeesiö gold project, in close proximity to Aurion Resources’ recent discoveries.
  • Detailed summer exploration planned for the new Sarvi gold project, adjacent to Rupert Resources’ recent Area 1 discovery.
  • Leadership exhibits a balance of technical and financial strengths, gold industry expertise and deep knowledge of Finland mining industry.
  • Tight structure with strong institutional support.

Key Projects

Central Lapland Greenstone Belt – Site of a New Gold Rush in Finland

The CLGB is comparable in size to other major greenstone belts, such as Canada’s Abitibi, Western Australia’s Norseman-Wiluna and the Zimbabwe Craton. However, by 2015 only 9.1 million ounces of gold resources had been delineated across 13 gold deposits. According to a 2015 study on the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, there remains significant potential for million-ounce deposits in the area due to the lack of exploration up to this point.

The dearth of exploration is due to the fact that prior to joining the European Union in 1995, foreign companies could not hold a majority share in an exploration or mining company. All exploration and exploitation was completed via state-owned companies such as Outokumpu. The end result was limited gold exploration. In many cases when gold was discovered (whether in soil sample, rock chips, or drilling), it was rarely followed up.

This lack of exploration was underscored by a comment made by FireFox Gold’s Chairman, Patrick Highsmith, in 2005: “Newmont drills more for gold in one year in Nevada alone than has ever been spent on gold drilling in the history of the CLGB”. This is also one of the reasons Mr. Highsmith decided to aid in founding FireFox Gold.

With new discoveries now starting to be made, the FireFox team believes that it is only a matter of time before significant gold deposits are delineated in this part of Finland, and that the companies that control the most prospective ground have the best chance for value creation.

Flagship Property: Jeesiö Gold Project

Located in Finland’s northernmost province of Lapland, Jeesiö gold project shares an address with many of the recent gold discoveries in the country’s Central Lapland Greenstone Belt.

The 100% held Jeesiö gold project hosts multiple orogenic gold targets and is positioned along the Sirkka Shear Zone, a major crustal structure that cuts through the CLGB and controls the emplacement of the majority of the orogenic gold deposits in Lapland.

The Jeesiö property’s prospectivity for gold was first identified by GTK (Finnish Geological Survey) during a country-wide reconnaissance till sampling program between 1983 and 1991. Further early-stage exploration work by Outokumpu and the GTK between 1990 and 2006 generated additional data supporting continuing gold exploration on the property. This work was never followed up.

Since acquiring the property in 2017, FireFox has performed reconnaissance till sampling, BOT sampling, ground-based and UAV geophysical surveys, geochemical sampling programs, bedrock sampling and mapping, trenching and reconnaissance drilling. The work has led to the identification of numerous prospective targets at Jeesiö including the high-priority Utsamo and Katajavaara.

The Utsamo target is located directly between Aurion’s recent Risti and Launi gold discoveries. Surface sampling programs at Utsamo have returned numerous gold anomalies at surface, up to 4.6 g/t gold, and the main trend is believed to be situated on the Sirkka Shear Zone.

The second high-priority target area is the Kataja Belt, located nine kilometres south of the Utsamo target and two kilometres southwest from Launi, a gold-bearing quartz-sulfide vein system. FireFox has completed ground and detailed aerial (UAV) magnetic geophysical surveys of the Kataja Belt target area. Mapping and sampling campaigns revealed multiple anomalous samples with outcropping quartz-sulfide veins yielding gold up to 10.5 g/t, and combined with the geophysical data set, significantly extended the target area. Drilling is expected to commence following the granting of the appropriate permits.

FireFox is highly encouraged by the results at both prospects, especially as both Utsamo and Katajavaara have had limited work to date in comparison with neighboring discoveries.

FireFox is advancing both prospects in 2021 with detailed work programs including drilling.

Mustajärvi Gold Project

The 100% held Mustajärvi gold project is situated within the CLGB and along the Venejoki Thrust Zone in Finland’s Lapland province. The project came with an extensive historic database including till anomalies from GTK (The Finnish Geological Survey) and Outokumpu as well as 12 diamond drill holes by Outokumpu and small-scale gold exploitation by a local prospector in the Central Zone.

Since 2018, FireFox Gold has completed BOT sampling, channel sampling, geologic mapping, geophysics, trenching and drilling that has delineated hige-grade gold over more than 1.5 kilometres of strike. FireFox first drilled the Central Zone in late 2018 and confirmed high-grade gold mineralization to greater depths than previously targeted. The Phase 1 program discovered a new style of high-grade gold at depth and included intercepts of 22.89 g/t gold over 3.95 metres, including 2 metres at 45 g/t gold. FireFox continued systematic exploration work in 2019, including a second drill campaign that identified new high-grade gold mineralization more than 500 metres to the northwest of the Central Zone, including an interval of 12 g/t gold over 1.95 metres.

The third program, completed in the fall of 2020, included additional trench sampling followed by drilling that further expanded the strike of high-grade gold, including a new interval of 2 metres averaging 33.25 g/t gold in hole 20MJ009.

FireFox Gold Moves Drill to Next Promising Target: Sarvi Project, Finland

FireFox Gold Corp. (TSXV:FFOX)(OTCQB:FFOXF) ("FireFox" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the winter drilling program is progressing as planned with approximately 3,800 metres drilled to date on three separate projects. The Company is now set to begin its first drilling at the Sarvi Project, which adjoins Rupert Resources' Area 1 property. The first phase of diamond drilling at Sarvi is slated to start before the end of January and will include up to 500m in the northwestern portion of the project, where trenching and base-of-till (BOT) sampling have identified several gold and multielement anomalies. There is an ongoing BOT sampling program at Sarvi and results are not yet available for the southern and eastern portions of the property (see Figure 1: https:bit.ly357FBo0). The Company expects to bring the drill rig back to Sarvi during the second quarter for an estimated 2,000 metres of additional drilling

Carl Löfberg, President and CEO of FireFox, commented, "Our winter drill program is going very well so far. In fact, for the first time in FireFox's history we have a core rig operating at the same time as two base-of-till drilling rigs. We have already drilled three of our four permitted projects and are now advancing towards the first drilling on our Sarvi Project. Our integrated interpretation of geophysics, mapping, BOT sampling, and new trenching data has dramatically improved our understanding of the geology and targets at Sarvi. Our team believes that the southern portion of the Sarvi Project occupies a similar geologic setting to Rupert's Area 1 Project, so this is a very exciting time in the company's short history."

Snowline Gold Encounters Widespread Mineralization in 340 Metre Step-Out at Its Valley Zone and Mobilizes Second Drill

  • Moderate to intense sheeted quartz veins throughout 415 m drill hole at Valley (V-22-007), with 26 instances of trace visible gold noted from 19 m to 388 m depth
  • Hole represents 340 m step-out along strike of system from 2021 discovery drilling
  • Second drill now active at Valley; its first hole (V-22-008) encountered sheeted quartz mineralization 460 m away from nearest drill hole
  • Drilling ongoing, with assay results and full drill core evaluations pending.

Snowline Gold Corp. (CSE:GD)(OTCQB:SNWGF) (the "Company" or "Snowline") is pleased to announce that it has encountered 415 m of nearly continuous mineralization downhole from bedrock surface in V-22-007 at its Rogue Project's Valley Zone in Canada's Yukon Territory. Hole V-22-007 was a 340 m step-out along-strike to the southeast of 2021 drill hole V-21-003 (which intersected 168.65 m averaging 1.25 gt Au from bedrock surface). A second drill rig mobilized to site and has completed drilling V-22-008, which intersected sheeted quartz veins 460 m from the nearest hole to date, further expanding the footprint of known mineralization at Valley

Snowline Chair and Director Craig Hart comments that "I've seen a lot of rocks and a lot of drill core from many intrusion-related gold systems, but these Valley intersections have the most intense vein densities I've ever seen. There are overprinting vein generations and varying vein orientations which is unusual and further indicates a very robust mineralizing system. To see these vein densities over significant widths is very encouraging. The numerous observations of visible gold and bismuthinite indicate that the system is mineralized, but of course the assay results are required before we get too excited." Dr. Hart is a globally recognized expert in intrusion-related gold systems.
