Green River Gold


Overview

The Cariboo gold district in British Columbia, Canada, was a world-class producer of gold, and site of the famous Cariboo Gold Rush between 1861 and 1867. The district produced approximately 3.8 million ounces of gold after 1874, divided roughly evenly between hard rock gold and placer gold production valued at C$50 million.

Today, the Cariboo gold district remains a prospective and mining-friendly region with excellent infrastructure. Interest in the region has been renewed with recent transactions including the acquisition of Barkerville Gold Mines, now held by Osisko Development Corp. (TSXV:ODV). Other notable names in the Cariboo gold district include Omineca Mining and Metals (TSXV:OMM) with its Wingdam Gold project, Imperial Metals' (TSE:III) Mount Polley mine and Taseko Mines' (TSX:TKO) Gibraltar mine. Mining companies with projects in the Cariboo gold district present investors with renewed discovery potential in a historically significant area.

According to Green River Gold (CSE:CCR) CEO Perry Little, "The hunt is on."

Green River Gold is exploring for gold, as well as nickel, cobalt and talc, in the historically-prolific Cariboo gold district. The company's highly prospective and potentially high-grade project feature excellent access to infrastructure, including roads, power and local talent.

The fully-owned Fontaine Lode Gold project spans 8,900 hectares and is located 12 kilometres from Barkerville which was the epicentre of the Cariboo Gold Rush in 1860. The Fontaine Lode Gold project is contiguous to Osisko's Cariboo Gold Project, which is anticipated to begin production in the latter half of 2023.

The Quesnel Nickel Cobalt Talc project is contiguous to the Fontaine Lode Gold project and is an early-stage project that spans approximately 2,219 hectares. The project has similar geological features to FPX Nickel's (TSXV:FPX) Decar Nickel District project, which some consider the third top nickel project in the world. Historic work on the Quesnel Nickel Cobalt Talc project suggest significant potential for all three minerals. Grab samples were taken in recent weeks and have been sent for assay. Assay results are expected by the end of November 2021.

The Kymar Silver project is a silver project that includes two mineral tenures spanning 1,440 hectares in Southeastern British Columbia. The project is located 28 kilometres west of Invermere in the Golden Mining Division in British Columbia. A historical bulk sample on Kymar Silver revealed high average grades of 2,000 g/t silver, 57 percent lead, 0.8 percent copper and 3.4 g/t gold. The property also features several past-producing artisanal mines.

Grab samples were gathered from the areas of several of the past producing artisanal mines in October 2021 and were sent to the lab for assay. Assay results are expected by late November 2021.

Green River Gold has strategic positioning in highly prospective geological areas near past-producing mines. The Fontaine Lode Gold project features similar geology to Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold project which it borders. The Quesnel Nickel Cobalt Talc project also borders Omineca Mining and Metals' Wingdam Gold project.

In an interview, CEO Perry Little shared, "Every hole drilled and every bit of exploration done by Osisko, Omineca or Green River will lead to a greater understanding of the regional geology."

Currently, Green River Gold is conducting exploration activities on its properties including bedrock mapping, geochemical exploration, ground geophysics and backpack drilling. Green River Gold is also in the process of applying for permits to commence RC and diamond drilling on its properties. The company is committed to producing a NI 43-101 technical report in a timely manner.

Green River Gold is led by a highly experienced management team over 60 years of combined technical experience and over 30 years of capital market experience. CEO Perry Little has an impressive 28-year-long successful career with extensive experience in financing junior resource companies and trading in the public markets.

Green River Gold’s Key Projects

Fontaine Lode Gold

The Fontaine Lode Gold project is a 100 percent-owned prospective gold project that includes placer and hard-rock tenures spanning 90 square kilometres in the historic Cariboo gold district in British Columbia, Canada. The project is located approximately 12 kilometres southwest of the historic Barkerville town which was the epicentre of the original Cariboo Gold Rush that started in 1860. The property straddles an 18-kilometres of length on the Quesnel Barkerville and Slide Mountain terranes.

From the 1970s to the 1980s, prospecting and sampling were conducted on the property. The Fontaine Lode Gold project features similar geology to Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold project which it borders. The Cariboo Gold project has an indicated resource of 3.2 million ounces of gold grading 4.64 g/t gold and an inferred resource of 2.72 million ounces of gold grading 3.91 g/t gold.

Quesnel Nickel Cobalt Talc

The Quesnel Nickel Cobalt Talc project is an early-stage prospective silver project that includes 8 mineral claims spanning approximately 2,219 hectares in the Cariboo gold district in British Columbia, Canada. The project is located next to the Fontaine Gold project and has similar geological features to FPX Nickel's Decar Nickel District project, considered by some to be the third-top nickel project in the world. The Quesnel Nickel Cobalt Talc project borders Omineca Mining and Metals' Wingdam Gold project and is on trend with the Eureka Thrust which runs on the Wingdam project.

Historical drilling conducted on the project's nickel and talc anomalies as well as limited rock sampling and analyses suggest the potential for high grade nickel. The Quesnel Nickel Cobalt Talc project features surface outcrops of nickel, cobalt and talc.

Kymar Silver

The Kymar Silver project is a prospective silver project that includes mineral tenures spanning 1,440 hectares in the Cariboo gold district in British Columbia, Canada. The project is located 28 kilometres west of Invermere in the Golden Mining Division in British Columbia and along the southeast portion of Mount Catherine. Mineralization on the Kymar Silver project includes silver, lead, gold and zinc hosted in polymetallic veins within a zone along a normal fault. The polymetallic veins exist within the Purcell Supergroup strata, including the Mount Nelson and Dutch Creek formations.

The Kymar Silver project includes several past-producing artisanal mines. In 1926, a bulk sample from the property revealed average grades of 2,000 g/t silver, 57 percent lead, 0.8 percent copper and 3.4 g/t gold. Kymar Silver has six high-grade targets based on historical production, shafts and stockpiles and other workings. Grab samples from the areas of the old artisanal mines were taken in October 2021. Assay results are expected by the end of November 2021.

Green River Gold Corp. Completes Maiden Drilling Program at Its Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

Green River Gold Corp. Completes Maiden Drilling Program at Its Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

Further to its news release of December 8, 2021, Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to announce the completion of its maiden drilling program at the wholly owned Quesnel NickelCobaltTalc Project in British Columbia, Canada.

The drill core samples are currently being prepared to be submitted for assay results at ALS Laboratories. Photos of some of the drill core will be available at the Company's website, greenrivergold.com shortly.

Perry Little, Green River Gold's President and CEO stated, "We are very excited to see the early results from this drilling program appear to be very similar to the limited, but impressive, results from the 1980's that inspired the claim owners at the time to proceed to a feasibility study and preliminary mining plan. With increased confidence regarding the presence of talc on the property, we are now shifting our attention to the potential for other minerals, including nickel. The work done in the 1980's had a singular focus on the talc potential and may have overlooked the potential for other metals. We look forward to continued drilling early in 2022."

The area being targeted with the drilling program is host to talc and nickel mineralization (see the Sovereign nickel showing, Minfile 093A 130). The area covered by these mineral rights was subject to an exploration program targeting the potential for a commercial talc deposit during the 1980's. The exploration resulted in the preparation of a preliminary talc mining plan in 1986.[1] To date, only the evaluation of the talc potential has been done. From a thorough review of the records from the 1980's, the potential for other minerals, including nickel, to be present along with the talc was not fully investigated.

The drilling completed on the talc showing in the 1980's consisted of relatively shallow holes. Green River's goal for this preliminary part of the program was to confirm the results of the drilling from the 1980's. One of the first holes that Green River drilled during this program appears to have intersected one of the drill holes from the 1980's. The Company was initially uncertain of the exact coordinates of the 1980's drill program.

The accidental intersection of one of the original drill holes was an extremely unlikely occurrence, but it has given the Company great confidence that Green River is drilling from the exact location that was drilled in the 1980's. Drill results to this point mirror the reported results from the 1980's drilling. The Company intends to follow up the preliminary results in early 2022 using a larger rig capable of reaching depths of over 100 meters with the twin goals of expanding the area of the known talc occurrence and gaining more knowledge of the potential for nickel and cobalt in the same general area as the talc.

Kyle Townsend, Mine Manager for Green River Gold Corp. says "We would like to thank our exploration team and contractor, Paradigm Drilling, for the successful completion of the maiden drill program at the Quesnel Project. We are eager to share initial results from this highly prospective project. While we patiently await assay results from the accredited lab, management has asked our exploration team to develop a follow up exploration program that would include a second phase of drilling at the Project and a 2022 field program to help understand the true extent of our target."

Tyler Tian, Contract Mining Engineer for Green River Gold, provided this geological summary of the drill core from the maiden drill program:

The host rock is carbonate-bearing serpentinite, and its protolith is the ultramafic rock, peridotite (or pyroxenite, as less olivine). Black colour, coarse-grained with grain size ranges from 2 to 16 mm. As serpentinite is a low-temperature metamorphic rock, the texture shows cataclastic, banded, and foliated. The core bears many large crystals of pyroxene, antigorite, and a white milky colour carbonate breccia veinlet (the carbonate vein reacts with acid and fizzing, mainly calcite, less dolomite). The carbonate, mainly calcite recrystallization, could be noticed on the core through the veinlet. Slightly weathering and oxidation shows near the surface (first 2 to 3 meters). Moderate carbonate alteration throughout the core, mainly gray dolomite. Then weak to moderate, talcose alternation replaces the carbonate in the core, showing green colour and waxy texture. The talc crystals aggregate with carbonates shown on the core with grain size ranging from 1 to 30 mm. Slightly chlorite alteration could be noticed as well. There are no other intrusive body shows on the core. Sulphides (less than 1 %of the core) are weakly disseminated along with the ultramafic rock (with pyroxene), mainly pyrite, from the shallow surface. There is a copper-bronze colour mineral associated with ultramafic rock, it could be nickel minerals, such as pentlandite or nickeline. One mineral that has weak magnetic, which might be pyrrhotite. There are minor quartz veins that intersect the drill core with a thickness of less than 5 cm and without any other sulphides showing up in the quartz vein. The sulphides mineralizations are easy to observe along with the fractures. Some of the fractures, the sulphides could take up to 65% of section area, associated with dark colour ultramafic rock, and foliated. At this stage, it could be assumed the mineralization type is lateritic nickel.

The Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project is adjacent to the Company's Fontaine Gold Project. The two projects border Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold Project, which contains 5 million ounces of gold and is expected to go into production late in 2023.

Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project Highlights:

There are 3 BC MINFILE occurrences as follows:

  • 093A 013 - Sovereign Creek - developed prospect containing talc and magnesite, and a co-incident nickel sulfide showing.
  • 093A 130 - Sovereign - showings containing talc and nickel sulfides.
  • 093H 061 - R.T. - showing containing nickel, chromium, and cobalt.

Talc is a soft mineral used in a variety of industries. Talc is used in the production of plastics, ceramics, paint, paper, roofing, rubber, and for other industrial uses. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) indicates that total sales of talc by U.S. Producers in 2020 was about 430,000 tons valued at about US $100 million. The USGS estimates total mine production worldwide in 2020 was 5,800,000 tons with about 220,000 tons produced in Canada. To the best of the Company's knowledge, there are no talc mines in Western Canada.

The recently completed UAV-MAG survey results over the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project area indicates the presence of highly magnetic rocks co-incident with the interpreted surface exposure and down-dip projection of a favorable ultramafic rock assemblage. This is similar to the aeromagnetic response in the area of nickel-alloy mineralization found throughout the BC Decar District.

Further to its news release of December 8, 2021Regional Exploration Plan:

Additionally, there will be some upcoming exploration plans for the Fontaine Lode Gold Project, which is contiguous to the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project and also contiguous to Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold Project. Green River is also awaiting assay results from the recent grab sampling program completed at the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project.

Green River Gold Corp. Provides Exploration Drilling Update at Its Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

Green River Gold Corp. Provides Exploration Drilling Update at Its Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

 Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to provide an update on its Initial Phased Exploration Drill Program at the wholly owned Quesnel NickelCobaltTalc Project in British Columbia, Canada.

Further to its news release of November 25, 2021, the Company is pleased to announce that since the drilling crew arrived on site, they have been drilling from talc outcroppings using a backpack drill. The experience of the drilling crew from Paradigm Drilling Ltd., combined with the soft nature of the talc mineralization has allowed the crew to drill several holes to depths of 20 meters.

The area being targeted with the drilling program is host to talc and nickel mineralization (see the Sovereign nickel showing, Minfile 093A 130). The area covered by these mineral rights was subject to an exploration program targeting the potential for a commercial talc deposit during the 1980's. The exploration resulted in the preparation of a preliminary talc mining plan in 1986.[1]

The drilling completed on the talc showing in the 1980's consisted of relatively shallow holes. Green River's goal for this preliminary part of the program is to confirm the results of the drilling from the 1980's and to expand the footprint of the talc occurrence discovered at that time. Drilling short holes will determine the grade and quality of the talc exposures, which outcrops at multiple locations in the project area. The Company will also drill deeper holes to determine the vertical extent of the talc mineralization. Depending on the results of the initial drilling, the Company expects to undertake additional drilling throughout the winter to further determine the extent of the talc mineralization.

One of the first holes that Green River drilled during this program appears to have intersected one of the drill holes from the 1980's. The Company was initially uncertain of the exact coordinates of the 1980's drill program. The accidental intersection of one of the original drill holes was an extremely unlikely occurrence, but it has given the Company great confidence that Green River is drilling from the exact location that was drilled in the 1980's. Drill results to this point mirror the reported results from the 1980's drilling.

Drilling with the backpack drill is continuing. To date, the core from the first five holes, totaling approximately 72 meters, has been transported to Quesnel and is in the process of being logged. From there it will be sent to the lab for assay. The following description of Drill hole D021-03 from Steve Kocsis, Qualified Person for the project, is indicative of what the early drilling results are showing.

"Drill hole DO21-03 was drilled at a 330° azimuth and -70° dip to a total depth of 16.76 m. From 0 to 13.4 m talc occurs in layers up to 12 cm thick and as brecciated fragments up to 2 cm wide. Talc makes up around 15% of the rock in this depth interval. From 13.4 to 15.85 talc occurs in layers up to 1.0 m thick and makes up around 80% of the rock in this depth interval. The rock was soft and washed away at depth interval 15.85 to 16.76 m and there was 0% core recovered. The soft rock was more than likely a high percentage of talc."

As successful as this drilling method has been, it is limited in its capabilities of recovering some friable formations. To date, our contractor has exceeded our expectations for core recovery considering the drilling method and ground conditions present.

Follow-up drilling with a larger drill rig is expected to begin in January. The Company will be able to explore potential talc mineralization to depths exceeding 100 meters versus the shallow exploration completed in the past and with the current round of drilling. The talc showing outcrops at several locations on the Company's claims, making drilling a relatively simple process and allowing for drilling throughout the winter.

The Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project is adjacent to the Company's Fontaine Gold Project. The two projects border Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold Project, which contains 5 million ounces of gold and is expected to go into production late in 2023.

Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project Highlights:

There are 3 BC MINFILE occurrences as follows:

  • -  093A 013 - Sovereign Creek - developed prospect containing talc and magnesite, and a co-incident nickel sulfide showing.
  • -  093A 130 - Sovereign - showings containing talc and nickel sulfides.
  • -  093H 061 - R.T. - showing containing nickel, chromium, and cobalt.

Talc is a soft mineral used in a variety of industries. Talc is used in the production of plastics, ceramics, paint, paper, roofing, rubber, and for other industrial uses. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) indicates that total sales of talc by U.S. Producers in 2020 was about 430,000 tons valued at about US $100 million. The USGS estimates total mine production worldwide in 2020 was 5,800,000 tons with about 220,000 tons produced in Canada. To the best of the Company's knowledge, there are no talc mines in Western Canada.

In addition to acquiring more knowledge of the talc occurrences on the Property, the Company intends to drill using the larger rig to gain more knowledge of the potential for nickel and cobalt in the same general area as the talc. The Company will be concentrating on known and potential new nickel and cobalt targets with the plan to continue drilling with larger RC/DD rigs in 2022.

The recently completed UAV-MAG survey results over the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project area indicates the presence of highly magnetic rocks co-incident with the interpreted surface exposure and down-dip projection of a favorable ultramafic rock assemblage. This is similar to the aeromagnetic response in the area of nickel-alloy mineralization found throughout the BC Decar District.

Kyle Townsend, Mine Manager for Green River Gold Corp. says; "The success of our modified backpack drilling technique is very encouraging. We have demonstrated our ability to obtain quality down hole data in a very cost effective manner while keeping our surface disturbance to almost nonexistent. As we move from the trial phase to the drilling phase, we are working to delineate the talc mineralization with enough data to confirm a mineral resource."

Perry Little, Green River Gold's President and CEO stated, "We are excited to see the early results from this drilling program appear to be very similar to the limited, but impressive, results from the 1980's that inspired the claim owners at the time to proceed to a feasibility study and preliminary mine plan. In addition to finding out more about the potential for a commercial talc deposit, the focus will be on nickel and cobalt. Preliminary metallurgical work completed in 1971 has suggested the presence of nickel sulfide or nickel alloy minerals. One focus in the initial phase of exploration is to prioritize the multiple Nickel/Cobalt targets within the project area for a follow-up RC/DD drill program and to expand the areas of mineralization in 2022."

Regional Exploration Plan:

Additionally, there will be some upcoming exploration plans for the Fontaine Lode Gold Project, which is contiguous to the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project and also contiguous to Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold Project. Green River is also awaiting assay results from the recent grab sampling program completed at the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project.

Green River Gold Corp. Commences Exploration Drilling at Its High-Grade Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

Green River Gold Corp. Commences Exploration Drilling at Its High-Grade Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to announce an Initial Phased Exploration Drill Program at its wholly owned Quesnel NickelCobaltTalc Project in British Columbia, Canada.

Further to the news release of October 28, 2021, the Company is pleased to announce that is has begun drilling short holes using a backpack drill with multiple new targets identified. Core samples have been transported to the Company's facility in Quesnel to be logged and sent for assay. The talc showing outcrops at several locations on the Company's claims, making drilling a relatively simple process and allowing for drilling throughout the Winter.

The Company has contracted a drilling company to test a "modified backpack drilling technique". If successful, this technique could result in drilling up to 20 meters deep. The drilling company has arrived in Quesnel and trail cutting to access the drill targets is currently underway. A larger diamond core drill rig capable of reaching depths exceeding 100 meters has been located and will be used for deeper drilling during this Winter's drill program. The larger drill is expected to be mobilized within the next two weeks.

The Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project is adjacent to the Company's Fontaine Gold Project. The two projects border Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold Project, which contains 5 million ounces of gold and is expected to go into production late in 2023.

Drilling short holes will determine the grade and quality of the talc exposures, which outcrops at multiple locations in the Project area. The Company will also drill deeper holes to determine the vertical extent of the talc mineralization. Depending on the results of the initial drilling, the Company will undertake additional drilling throughout the Winter to further determine the extent of the talc mineralization.

The area to be targeted with the drilling program is host to talc and nickel mineralization (see the Sovereign nickel showing, Minfile 093A 130). The area covered by these mineral rights was subject to an exploration program targeting the potential for a commercial talc deposit during the 1980's. The exploration resulted in the preparation of a preliminary talc mining plan in 1986.1

The drilling completed on the talc showing in the 1980's consisted of relatively shallow holes. The holes resemble what can be achieved by using the modified backpack drilling technique that the Company will employ this Winter. Follow-up drilling with a larger drill rig will be able to explore potential talc mineralization to depths exceeding 100 meters versus the shallow exploration completed in the past.

Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project Highlights:

There are 3 BC MINFILE occurrences as follows:

  • 093A 013 - Sovereign Creek - developed prospect containing talc and magnesite, and a co-incident nickel sulfide showing.
  • 093A 130 - Sovereign - showings containing talc and nickel sulfides. 093H 061 - R.T. - showing containing nickel, chromium, and cobalt.

Talc is a soft mineral used in a variety of industries. Talc is used in the production of plastics, ceramics, paint, paper, roofing, rubber, and for other industrial uses. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) indicates that total sales of talc by U.S. Producers in 2020 was about 430,000 tons valued at about US $100 million. The USGS estimates total mine production worldwide in 2020 was 5,800,000 tons with about 220,000 tons produced in Canada. To the best of the Company's knowledge, there are no talc mines in Western Canada.

In addition to acquiring more knowledge of the talc occurrences on the Property, the Company intends to drill using the larger rig to gain more knowledge of the potential for nickel and cobalt in the same general area as the talc. The Company will be concentrating on known and potential new nickel and cobalt targets with the plan to continue drilling with larger RC/DD rigs in 2022.

The recently completed UAV-MAG survey results over the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project area indicates the presence of highly magnetic rocks co-incident with the interpreted surface exposure and down-dip projection of a favorable ultramafic rock assemblage. This is similar to the aeromagnetic response in the area of nickel-alloy mineralization found throughout the BC Decar District.

Kyle Townsend, Mine Manager for Green River Gold Corp., says, "I am very excited for the trial run of the modified backpack drilling technique. If successful, this technique will greatly lower our exploration costs while producing valuable results quickly. The first target we chose is twinning drill hole 86-1, drilled by Trifco Minerals in 1986. The existing records indicate favorable conditions for this drilling method. Our intent is to delineate the talc mineralization indicated by Trifco Minerals. This round of drilling is an exciting step towards obtaining the important data we need."

Perry Little, Green River Gold's President and CEO stated, "We are very pleased with the progress made within a few short weeks. We are excited to expand our exploration program at the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project. In addition to finding out more about the potential for a commercial talc deposit, the focus will be on nickel and cobalt. Preliminary metallurgical work completed in 1971 has suggested the presence of nickel sulfide or nickel alloy minerals.
