Getchell Gold Corp. (CSE: GTCH) (OTCQB: GGLDF) ("Getchell" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the results for holes FCG21-11 and FCG21-12 targeting the Colorado SW and Juniper gold zones at the Fondaway Canyon Gold project in Nevada.

Key Highlights

  • Hole FCG21-11 intersected multiple significant gold intercepts within the Colorado SW zone over a 242 metre down hole distance including 1.4 g/t Au over 14.9m, 1.0 g/t Au over 52.5m and 2.2 g/t Au over 9.1m;
  • FCG21-11 also encountered the near surface high-grade Juniper zone grading 8.8 g/t Au over 8.2m;
  • Hole FCG21-12 intersected the Colorado SW zone of gold mineralization over a 92 metre down hole distance that included 6.3 g/t Au over 3.6m, 2.5 g/t Au over 24.5m, and 1.6 g/t Au over 25.5m;
  • The Colorado SW gold zone, discovered in 2020, has now been tested by Getchell with eight drill holes that confirm its continuity on a 150m wide section along a 300 metre down dip extent;
  • Including holes drilled by past operators, the Colorado SW zone is modelled to extend for 800 metres down dip from surface and remains open on strike and at depth; and
  • Assays are pending for holes FCG21-13 through FCG21-16.

"The gold assay results from these latest two drill holes continue to demonstrate the strong continuity and potential scale of the mineralizing system at Fondaway Canyon and provide an excellent start to 2022," states Mike Sieb, President, Getchell Gold Corp.

Fondaway Canyon 2021 Drill Program Update

Ten drill holes, FCG21-07 through FCG21-16, totalling 3,874 metres were drilled last year at the Fondaway Canyon Gold Project. All ten holes are located in the Central Area and followed up on the 2020 discovery of the Colorado SW, the Juniper, and the North Fork gold zones (Figure 1). The two drill holes, FCG21-11 and FCG21-12, reporting results in this news release, primarily targeted the Colorado SW gold zone.

Drill Hole FCG21-11

FCG21-11 was designed to extend the Colorado SW gold zone approximately 30 to 50 metres to the southeast down-dip of hole FCG21-08 and 40 metres to the northwest on-strike from holes FCG20-05 and FCG20-06 (Figure 1 and 2).

FCG21-11, stationed at the Colorado Pit on the same drill pad as FCG21-08 and drilling to the southwest, intersected multiple significant gold intercepts within the Colorado SW zone over a 242 metre down hole distance. Three of the more notable drill intercepts grade:

  • 1.4 g/t Au over 14.9m from 250.3 to 265.2m;
  • 1.0 g/t Au over 52.5m from 274.4 to 326.9m;
  • 2.2 g/t Au over 9.1m from 333.1 to 342.2m; with additional notable intervals presented in Table 1.

FCG21-11 was also designed to test the near surface high grade Juniper gold zone down dip from FCG21-08 that reported 4.7 g/t Au over 25.9m. FCG21-11 intersected a substantially higher-grade interval reporting 8.8 g/t Au over 8.2m from 107.8 to 116.0 including one sample that graded 22.9 g/t Au over 1.7m.

Drill Hole FCG21-12

FCG21-12, stationed near the canyon floor and drilling steeply to the northeast, was designed to test the down-dip extent of the Colorado SW gold mineralization encountered in FCG20-05 with a 40-metre step out. FCG21-12 intersected the Colorado SW zone of gold mineralization over a 92 metre down hole distance with three of the more notable drill intercepts grading:

  • 6.3 g/t Au over 3.6m from 224.4 to 228.0m;
  • 2.5 g/t Au over 24.5m from 235.5 to 260.0m;
  • 1.6 g/t Au over 25.5m from 271.9 to 297.4m; with additional notable intervals presented in Table 1.

There are now 8 holes drilled by the Company (FCG20-02, FCG20-03, FCG20-05 to FCG21-08, FC21-11, and FC21-12) on a 150 metre wide section that have confirmed continuity of the thick Colorado SW gold zone along a 300 metre down dip extent since its discovery in 2020. Including holes drilled by past operators, the Colorado SW zone is modelled to extend for 800 metres down dip from surface and remains open on strike and down dip.

There are four holes, FCG21-13 through FCG21-16, drilled in 2021 with assays pending and expected over the coming weeks.

  • FCG 21-13 and FCG21-14, stationed in the Colorado Pit, were designed to infill an area below the pit that had a gap in the historic drill coverage to assist with the modelling of the upper region of the Colorado SW zone.
  • FCG21-15, stationed near the canyon floor on the same drill pad as FCG21-12 and drilling almost vertical to the northeast, was designed to further extend the Colorado SW gold mineralization 30 metres down dip from FCG21-12.
  • FCG21-16, stationed on the canyon floor at the junction of the Fondaway Canyon and North Fork drainages and drilled to the northwest, was designed to extend the North Fork gold zone 30 metres off-section to the northwest, from holes FCG20-04, FCG21-09, and FCG21-10.

Scott Frostad, P.Geo., is the Qualified Person (as defined in NI 43-101) who reviewed and approved the content and scientific and technical information in the news release.

The 2021 drill core is being processed using the same methods as the 2020 drill program. The core is cut at Bureau Veritas Laboratories' ("BVL") facilities in Sparks, Nevada, with the samples analyzed for gold and multi-element analysis in BVL's Sparks, Nevada and Vancouver, BC laboratories respectively. Gold values are produced by fire assay with an Atomic Absorption finish on a 30-gram sample (BV code FA430) with over limits re-analyzed using method FA530 (30g Fire Assay with gravimetric finish). The multi-element analyses are performed by ICP-MS following aqua regia digestion on a 30g sample (BV code AQ250). Quality control measures in the field include the systematic insertion of standards and blanks.

Highlighted drill intervals are based on a 0.25 g/t Au cut-off, minimum interval lengths of 3.3 metres (10 feet), and a maximum of 3.3 metres of internal dilution, with no top cut applied. All intervals are reported as downhole drill lengths and additional work is required to determine the true width.

Cyprium Metals Ltd Further Significant Copper Intersections from Nifty West Drilling Program

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Cyprium Metals Limited (ASX:CYM) is pleased to announce further assay results from 28 RC holes (for 7,504m) of the Nifty West drilling program. The drilling programme targeted a lightly drilled area, up-plunge of the former underground mine in the keel area of the Nifty Syncline, below the western end of the Nifty open pit (refer to Figure 1*).

Managing Director Barry Cahill commented:

"We have been very pleased with the drilling results received to date. These assay results continue to confirm the presence of a substantial zone of copper mineralisation which is up-plunge of the former underground mine. We continue to be excited about the receipt of the results of balance of the outstanding assays. It is not often that you have the privilege of getting these widths of mineralisation beneath an existing shallow open pit. The assays will be included in an updated mineral resource estimate that we look forward to releasing during the first half of this year."

Hole locations from the current program are shown in Figure 2* with the significant intersections summarised in Table 2*.

Discussion of results

Further wide intervals of low to medium-grade copper mineralisation were encountered on four section lines (101,560E - Figure 3*, 101,600E- Figure 4*, 101,640E- Figure 5* and 101,680E- Figure 6*) to the immediate east of lines 101,480E and 101,520E, where significant intersection were reported from the first batch of assay results announced on 2 November 2021. The latest intersections provide further confirmation of the presence of significant copper mineralisation associated with the lightly tested Nifty Syncline keel zone up-plunge of the former underground mine.

The remaining 25 holes drilled in the west pit area have been designed to intersect potential oxide, transition and sulphide ore, as infill and extension along the keel and the south limb of the Nifty Syncline.

Further drilling will be conducted in the south-east and east of the existing pit, which potentially will add the existing 732,000 tonnes of contained copper in the mineral resource at Nifty (refer to Figure 7*).
