Fortune Bay Corp. (TSXV: FOR) (FWB: 5QN) ("Fortune Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Phase 2 exploration drilling has commenced on its Goldfields Gold Project, and a ground gravity survey has begun on its Strike Uranium Project. Both Projects are located in northern Saskatchewan within 25 kilometres of Uranium City where the Company has an established operational base (see Figure 1).

Goldfields Project - Phase 2 Exploration Drilling

  • Drilling has commenced to test gold exploration targets within the hinge zone of the Goldfields Syncline, between the Box and Athona gold deposits, with the objective of making a new discovery.
  • An estimated 2,000 metres of diamond drilling is planned to test up to six targets which have been identified from geological and geophysical datasets (see Figure 2), with additional resource expansion drilling at the Box deposit contingent on final assay results from Phase 1 drilling completed during 2021.

Strike Uranium Project – Ground Gravity Survey

  • A ground gravity survey has commenced over the northern portion of the Project area (approximately 2,600 hectares) to cover the 15 kilometre length extent of the prioritized electromagnetic ("EM") conductors.
  • Ground gravity results will be utilized to detect favorable clay alteration zones along the EM conductors to further prioritize targets for drilling.
  • Maiden exploration drilling is planned to commence in mid Q2 2022 and continue into the summer months.

Dale Verran , CEO for Fortune Bay, commented, " The coming year is poised to be an exciting year for the Company as we embark on implementing an expansive set of exploration plans focused on making new discoveries. In this regard, we are pleased to have started our 2022 field programs, commencing with exploration drilling at Goldfields and a ground gravity survey at Strike Uranium. Gold target generation during 2021, and a drill rig on site, has allowed us to commence the 2022 drilling at Goldfields on a compelling set of targets that lie directly between the Box and Athona gold deposits. While this program is ongoing during winter 2022, geophysical surveys at the Strike and Murmac projects are designed to prioritize targets before we commence exploration drilling for high-grade uranium in mid Q2 2022."

Gareth Garlick , Technical Director for Fortune Bay, added, "The lack of drilling along two kilometres of strike between the Box and Athona deposits, that jointly host approximately 1 million ounces in Indicated gold resources, presents a unique exploration opportunity. We believe our team has identified the key geological controls on gold mineralization within the Goldfields Syncline, including stratigraphic position and structural setting, and we are looking forward to results from our Phase 2 drill targets."

For further details on Fortune Bay's exploration plans for 2022 please refer to the Company's News Release dated December 15, 2021 .

Further Details: Goldfields Phase 2 Drill Targets

The Box and Athona gold deposits occur within "Mine Granites" located in similar stratigraphic positions at the base of the Murmac Group within the Goldfields Syncline, providing a preferred "target corridor" to explore for additional gold mineralization at relatively shallow depths. The target corridor has been defined on the basis of surface outcrop mapping and over 350 surface dip/azimuth measurements in the Goldfields area. In addition, both deposits are adjacent to major north-south to northeast-southwest oriented fault systems, which are visible in geophysical survey data, and are evident in topographical data and satellite imagery. These major fault systems are interpreted to have formed conduits for mineralizing fluids, as supported by the spatial association of all known gold occurrences on the Goldfields property with these structures.

The Phase 2 drill program is focused on exploring the defined two kilometre target corridor within the hinge zone of the Goldfields Syncline between the Box and Athona deposits, where there is no previous drilling (see Figure 2). Targets have been prioritized based on proximity to the interpreted major fault systems, while at the same time providing a broad (approximately 500 m spaced) exploratory step-out drill spacing. A single drill hole has also been planned to test a compelling untested resistivity / chargeability anomaly from the Titan IP survey carried out in 2010 (data were reinterpreted during 2021). Phase 2 target areas are typically characterized by significant soil, glacial till or shallow water cover and therefore surface prospecting, current or historical, is of limited or no value to evaluate targets. The Phase 2 drilling is designed to test for gold mineralization that may be buried beneath shallow cover or blind to surface.

The Company is awaiting receipt of final gold assay results from the remaining four drill holes completed at the Box deposit as part of the Phase 1 resource expansion program. The Phase 2 drilling program may be revised contingent on these results.

FORTUNE BAY ANNOUNCES INITIAL DRILL TARGET AREAS AND 2022 DRILLING PLANS FOR THE STRIKE URANIUM PROJECT

FORTUNE BAY ANNOUNCES INITIAL DRILL TARGET AREAS AND 2022 DRILLING PLANS FOR THE STRIKE URANIUM PROJECT

Fortune Bay Corp. (TSXV: FOR) (FWB: 5QN) ("Fortune Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to announce initial drill target areas and 2022 drilling plans for its 100% owned Strike Uranium Project ("Strike" or the "Project"), located in northern Saskatchewan (see Figure 1 and 2).

Fortune Bay Corp. Logo (CNW Group/Fortune Bay Corp.)

Highlights:

  • Nine (9) initial drill target areas have been identified following ground gravity surveying completed in March 2022 (Figure 3).
  • The initial target areas comprise favorable geological, geophysical and geochemical features typically associated with high-grade basement-hosted uranium deposits related to the Athabasca Basin.
  • The Tena target area (Figure 4) includes the historical Tena prospect where over 1,000 tonnes of uranium ore was mined in the 1950's with reported grades of 0.6% to 3.5% U 3 O 8 . Drill targets have been developed down-dip and along strike of the historical adit.
  • The Tena South target area (Figure 4) is located immediately south of the historical Tena prospect, associated with a coincident gravity low and electromagnetic ("EM") conductor.
  • The other seven (7) target areas include discrete gravity lows located along prominent EM conductors proximal to favourable geochemistry results and structural features.
  • Drilling is expected to commence in mid-May with approximately 2,500 meters planned in 8 to 10 drill holes. The program is expected to be results-driven, based upon drilling results and additional gravity survey results.

Dale Verran , CEO for Fortune Bay, commented, " We are pleased to have generated an initial set of drill target areas for Strike which meet the exploration criteria for high-grade basement-hosted uranium deposits related to the Athabasca Basin. The historical work completed between 2005 and 2008 identified favorable settings and positive signs for uranium mineralization, however target areas were not followed up with drill testing. A thorough review and analysis of the historical data, combined with results from winter 2022 ground gravity surveying, has revealed multiple target areas for drill testing. We are looking forward to our maiden exploration drilling campaign, expected to commence in May 2022 , which will aim to test a number of these target areas in addition to the historical Tena uranium prospect."

Strike Drill Targeting

Historical Background
The Project is endowed with a modern (mid-2000's), comprehensive historical exploration database from numerous uranium-focused surveys, including airborne and ground geophysical surveys, ground radiometric surveys and geochemical and reflectance spectrometry (clay) surveys. Despite positive results, and documented recommendations in historical assessment reports to advance the project, the targets generated were never drill tested. This previous exploration work identified prospective graphite- and sulphide-bearing EM conductors that due to their physical properties predominantly manifest as valleys and topographical lows, covered by overburden and small shallow lakes. These "blind" conductors have therefore not been explored by surface prospecting. Geochemical sampling from outcrop at valley edges along the conductor traces has confirmed elevated pathfinder elements, as well as favorable clay alteration including dravite, illite and kaolinite. Furthermore, the area is known to be endowed with historical uranium occurrences, including the Tena prospect. The known uranium occurrences were discovered along valley edges, immediately off the conductor traces, where outcrop is available and surface prospecting was possible, leaving the conductor targets at these localities untested.

Initial Drill Target Area Selection
Initial targeting at Strike has encompassed review and prioritization of target areas from integrated historical datasets. Three predominant conductor traces have been identified, and have been named the J, K and L conductors (Figure 3). Target areas along these conductor corridors were prioritized based on the nature and amplitude of the EM anomaly, topography and surface exposure, magnetic features, structural setting, historical geochemical data, historical reflectance spectrometry data, and historical scintillometer survey results. Target areas have been refined based on the results of winter ground gravity survey results. These data, collected to detect potential favorable clay alteration zones along the EM conductors, were integrated with existing datasets to refine drill target locations. Ground gravity survey over conductor traces will be ongoing in May.

The Tena target area (Figure 4) includes the historical Tena prospect where over 1,000 tonnes of uranium ore was mined in the 1950's with reported grades of 0.6% to 3.5% U 3 O 8 . In June 2021 , the Company verified the Tena prospect through geological investigation, gamma-ray spectrometer surveying, and confirmatory rock sampling. The results demonstrate high uranium grades on surface together with anomalous geochemical associations indicative of unconformity-related, basement-hosted uranium mineralization. Highlight uranium assay results of grab rock samples collected from the historical adit included 1.75% U 3 O 8, 0.94% U 3 O 8 and 0.55% U 3 O 8 (see News Release dated September 16, 2021 ). Three historical drill holes, on an approximate 65 metre spacing along strike, were completed by Amok Ltd. in 1968. Drill hole S4 intersected 1.6% eU over 4 feet (eU is equivalent uranium derived from a downhole gamma spectrometer) at a depth of approximately 160 metres below surface. Drill targets have been developed down-dip and along strike of the historical adit to provide additional tests of the mineralized structure.

Drilling Program and Operational Details
Drilling of the initial target areas is expected to commence in mid-May and will be helicopter-supported. Additional drill target area selection is expected to be carried out upon completion of additional ground gravity survey work scheduled ahead of drill testing. The Company has all the required permits for the planned exploration activities.

Murmac Uranium Project Update
  • Initial ground gravity surveying has been completed and surveying is expected to resume in Spring, following completion of the gravity surveying at Strike.
  • A VTEM™ (Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic) survey was completed in mid-April 2022 to obtain modern high-quality EM and magnetic data.
  • Newly acquired VTEM™ and gravity data will be integrated with extensive historical exploration and regional datasets to identify initial drill targets.
  • Maiden drilling is expected to commence following completion of drilling at Strike and continue into late Summer, with provision for up to 8 drill holes ( 2,000 m ). The drilling program will be results-driven, and will be adjusted based on gravity survey results and any drill results that warrant immediate follow-up.
