CSE:ROO) (OTC PINK:JNCCF) (Frankfurt:5VHA) RooGold Inc. ("RooGold" or the "Issuer") is pleased to report that high-grade gold and silver assays have been returned from its preliminary rock chip sampling program at its 100% held Arthurs Seat Project (Exploration Licence 9144) in the highly prospective New England Orogen in New South Wales, Australia

Highlights

  • 9 samples > 400 g/t Ag at mullock heaps and shafts at Murray and Co Mine, including
    • 4 samples > 1,000 g/t Ag
    • 5 samples > 1 g/t Au and 1 sample > 5 g/t Au
  • 9 samples > 1,000 ppm Cu including 1 sample at 1.1% Cu
  • Rock assays confirm historic assays at the Murray and Co Mine and McDonalds prospects
  • Land access established at Castlerag Silver Project, EL 9141, with historic production grades of 1,200 g/t Ag & > 20% Pb. Sampling of these workings is imminent.

Carlos Espinosa, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of RooGold commented, "Our first past rock chip sampling program at Arthurs Seat has returned high-grade gold-silver assays. These results confirm the historic assays of known prospects and are highly encouraging for follow up work. Additionally, our field team has recently received access to our high-grade Castlerag, EL 9141 Silver Project and sampling will commence as soon as practicable."

Rock Chip Sampling Program

A total of 274 rock chip samples collected at the Arthurs Seat Project (EL 9144) to confirm the results of historical sampling. Field work was targeted at sampling mullock dumps and shafts at the Murray and Co mine and McDonalds Prospect, as well as sampling along the N-S fault and the greisen altered granite contact at the Arthurs Seat Prospect. Key results are described below.

Murray and Co Mine

Twenty seven (27) rock samples were collected from the Murray and Co Mine mullock heaps and historic shafts. Highly anomalous gold and silver assays were returned over 40 m strike length at the Murray and Co Mine, Figure 1. The Murray and Co Mine is located within a zone of quartz veined metasediment approximately 350 m in E-W strike length.

The highest gold value of 6.27 g/t Au and 1,385 g/t Ag (R00249) was returned from the westerly most shaft from a brecciated and silicified metasediment containing multiple quartz veins. Table 1 shows significant assay results from the rock chip sampling at Murray and Co Mine. Very little historic work has been done at Murray and Co Mine. These gold assays are the first to be reported at this prospect.

Other assays surrounding Murray and Co Mine include 16 samples graded between 0.2 g/t - 0.01 g/t Ag.

McDonalds Mine Prospects

Fourty seven (47) rock samples were collected at the McDonalds prospect and returned anomalous gold and silver assays over an area 600 m x 350 m. Visual observations of some samples included massive stibnite and returned antimony (Sb) values up to 12.75% Sb.

These results are highly encouraging and show the potential for a polymetallic precious and base metal deposit along strike from the high grade silver values at the Murray and Co Mine located 2.75 km to its west.

Castlerag Silver Project

Roo Gold has been granted access to the key high grade workings at the Castlerag Project (EL 9141), located 6 km from Deepwater in northern NSW.

Historic production at the Castlerag mine is estimated at 4000 t at average grades of 1,200 g/t Ag & > 20% Pb.

Sampling of historic workings is imminent.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QAQC) and Assay Procedures

A minimum of 3 kg per rock chip sample collected in sealed calico bags by the RooGold field team. Five calicos containing rock chips placed in polyweave bags and each zip tied to ensure security. A total of 23 green bags were placed on heavy duty pallet, wrapped in heavy duty plastic wrap to ensure security and sent to ALS Geochemistry Labs (ALS) in Perth, Australia for assay testing. ALS is independent of RooGold and is certified to international quality standards through ISO/IEC 17025:2017 including ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 9002 specifications. At ALS, rock chips underwent coarse crushing before fine crushing to 70% less than 2mm then riffle split off 1kg, followed by a pulverise split to better than 85% passing

Steppe Gold Announces Gold Prepayment Facility

 Steppe Gold Limited (TSX: STGO) (OTCQX: STPGF) (FSE: 2J9) ("Steppe Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Triple Flag International Ltd ("Triple Flag") for a short-term gold prepay facility (the "Triple Flag Gold Prepay Facility").

One of the consequences of the zero covid policy in China and the attendant China/Mongolia border closures has been a shortage of available US dollars with banks in Mongolia. Steppe Gold sales revenue is received in Mongolian Tugrik. While most of its operating costs are also paid in local currency, we require US dollars to acquire reagents and to fund deliveries to Triple Flag. The Triple Flag Gold Prepay Facility allows Steppe Gold to continue to meet all of its obligations during this temporary market disruption.

New Break Identifies High-Grade Gold, up to 70.60 g/t Au, via Grab Sampling at Moray

New Break Identifies High-Grade Gold, up to 70.60 g/t Au, via Grab Sampling at Moray

New Break Resources Ltd. ("New Break" or the "Company") (CSE: NBRK) is pleased to report the results of grab and channel sampling programs conducted from June to August 2022, at its 100% owned Moray property ("Moray") located approximately 49 km south of Timmins, Ontario and 32 km northwest of the Young-Davidson Gold Mine operated by Alamos Gold Inc. Gold mineralization at Moray occurs in second order structures interpreted as splays off the Cadillac Larder-Lake Fault Zone, part of the famous Abitibi greenstone belt.

New Break engaged Orix Geoscience Inc. ("Orix") to oversee the grab and channel sampling programs and complete detailed structural mapping of the Voyager and Fiset areas, which included taking 74 grab samples from various areas of the Moray property, including in and around the historical Trench 12, stripped by SGX Resources Ltd. ("SGX") in 2012 at the Voyager showing ("Trench 12"). The highest-grade grab sample of 70.60 grams per tonne gold ("g/t Au") was located at the south end of the main Trench 12. Five samples from New Break's program yielded assays higher than the highest 21.8 g/t Au assay from the 2012 SGX prospecting and trenching program.
