Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSXV: LME) (OTCPINK: LMEFF) ("LAURION" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce assay results from the first three (3) diamond drill holes designed to expand the gold-and-zinc-rich mineralization at the A-Zone; located within a 2km segment of the 6 km long Ishkoday mineralized trend. The A-Zone trend is located on the southeastern portion of the Ishkoday project which LAURION is targeting with a 15,000 m drill campaign, which commenced on January 14, 2022 . The Ishkoday project comprises an area of 47 km 2 with initial exploration focus in areas accessed via the road 801, approximately 20 km northeast of Beardmore, Ontario .

The drilling confirmed the current geological interpretation and 3D model for the mineralization at the A-Zone. The interpreted mineralized horizon and veins, believed to be associated with syn-volcanics hydrothermal activity and later orogenic events, have been intercepted in all holes from the 2022 drill campaign. The redefined interpretation illustrates the stacked nature of the mineralization extending over more than 2 km strike length and 200 m width from the CRK Zone to the A-Zone.

In this newly drilled area, gold-and zinc-rich mineralization were intercepted returning:

  • LBX22-057: 1.21g/t Au, 6.40% Zn and 0.80% Cu over 8.70 m , including 1.67 g/t Au, 10.56% Zn, and 0.79% Cu over 2.68 m ; 1.75 g/t Au, 13.36% Zn and 2.09% Cu over 1.45 m
  • LBX22-056a: 0.85 g/t Au, 1.98% Zn and 0.18% Cu over 3.45 m , including 1.55 g/t Au, 7.79% Zn and 0.27% Cu over 0.5 m
  • LBX22-058: 1.55 g/t Au, 1.12% Zn, 0.11% Cu over 1.30 m , including 2.79 g/t Au, 1.85% Zn and 0.15% Cu over 0.70 m

Along the Ishkoday mineralized trend, two mineralization styles were identified:

  • gold-and-zinc-rich volcanogenic veins/horizons and:
  • orogenic style gold veins

*Note that the mineralized structures are interpreted to be steeply dipping and the intervals are not true width.

The current drilling campaign for the A-Zone also included:

  • Three drill holes located along strike from these initial holes (LBX22-056, LBX22-057 and LBX22-058) that also intersected gold-and zinc rich veins ( assays pending ), which confirms that the A-Zone extends significantly to the southwest over a newly opened strike area of more than 700 m .
  • Four new planned drill holes to further test the southwest extension of the A-Zone.
  • Two drill holes located in the northeastern portion of the A-Zone have tested the mineralization zone at depth and intersected gold-and-zinc-rich veins together with gold orogenic veins ( assays pending ).
  • Drilling in the A-Zone confirmed that the widest and highest-grade intercepts are dipping to the southwest at approximately 25° towards 225°, which is in line with the region stretch lineation (See Figure I , Figure 2 and Figure 3 ).

Current Drilling and Objectives
  • Nine drill holes located in the McLeod zone swamp intercepted the modelled gold- and zinc-rich veins and gold orogenic veins along the northeast-trending Ishkoday mineralized trend ( assays pending ).
  • If spring conditions permit, three additional drill holes are planned in the swamp to target a large chargeability anomaly coinciding with the interpreted mineralized horizons.
  • Once the spring breakup occurs, the drill will be moved to the A-Zone to further investigate the newly opened area; and the continuity of the CRK and A-Zone.
  • Further drilling is also planned to test the possible southeastern connection between the McLeod area and CRK Zones.

Sampling Analysis and Laboratory

Samples from the 2022 drilling were cut and sent for analysis. Preparation and analysis were completed at the Actlabs (ISO 9001:2015) laboratory in Thunder Bay . Actlabs is an internationally recognized laboratory that provides geochemical sample preparation, analytical procedures, and data management solutions.

LAURION uses a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program that monitors the chain of custody of samples and includes the insertion of blanks (5% of the announced results), duplicates (3% of the announced results), and standard reference material (5% of the announced results) in each batch of samples sent for analysis. Drill core is photographed, logged, and cut in half with one half retained in a secured location for verification purposes and one half shipped for analysis.

The entire sample is crushed to 80% passing 2 mm and a riffle split of 250 grams is taken and pulverized to 95% passing 105 µm (RX1). Samples are analyzed by four-acid digestion/ICP-MS package for 36 elements (1F2). Additionally, samples are analyzed for Au using a firing assay from a 50-gram pulp (1A2B-50). Overlimit samples values for zinc (>1%) and Pb (>0.5%) are re-assayed using a four-acid digestion overlimit method with ICP-AES 9 (8-4 Acid over limit).

No QA/QC issues were noted with the results reported herein.

Qualified Person

The technical contents of this release were reviewed and approved by Jean-Philippe Paiement , PGeo, MSc, a consultant to LAURION, and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

The Corporation is a junior mineral exploration and development company listed on the TSXV under the symbol LME and on the OTCPINK under the symbol LMEFF. The Corporation currently has 249,447,945 outstanding shares, of which approximately 81% of LAURION's issued and outstanding shares are owned and controlled by Insiders who are eligible investors under the "Friends and Family" categories.

LAURION's emphasis is on the development of its flagship project, the 100% owned mid-stage 47 km 2 Ishkoday Project, and its gold-silver and gold-rich polymetallic mineralization with a significant upside potential. The mineralization on Ishkoday is open at depth beyond the current core-drilling limit of -200 m from surface, based on the historical mining to a -685 m depth, in the past producing Sturgeon River Mine. The Brenbar Property, which was acquired in 2020 and is contiguous with the Ishkoday Property, hosts the historic Brenbar Mine. LAURION believes the mineralization to be a direct extension of mineralization from the Ishkoday Property.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Breaks US$1,800, Market Eyes Fed's Next Move

- YouTubeyoutu.be

This week started off slow for gold, but the yellow metal picked up pace mid-week, rising to just above US$1,800 per ounce by Thursday (December 1). It closed out the five day period around that level.

Diverse factors continue to impact the gold price, but chief among them right now are recent comments from US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. During a closely watched Brookings Institution speech on Wednesday (November 30), he said that smaller interest rate hikes are coming and could start as early as this month.

"(I)t makes sense to moderate the pace of our rate increases as we approach the level of restraint that will be sufficient to bring inflation down. The time for moderating the pace of rate increases may come as soon as the December meeting" — Jerome Powell, US Federal Reserve

Top 5 Gold Stocks on the TSX (Updated November 2022)

Click here to read the previous best gold stocks article.

The gold price is finally gaining some ground after falling below US$1,650 per ounce in September for the first time since 2020. The yellow metal neared US$1,800 in mid-November and is now sitting above US$1,750.

Even so, gold is still under pressure, and some experts think now is the time to buy. The Investing News Network spoke with Mark Yaxley, managing director of bullion dealer SWP, twice in November, and he shared his advice on buying bullion both times.

"My advice … to my clients, who are mostly Canadians and Americans, is maybe you should be mirroring eastern investors and taking advantage of these dips at this price level," he said in his first interview, explaining that westerners often wait for positive price performance to buy gold. In the second discussion, he shared his three guidelines when buying bullion.

Quadro Shares Results From Its Optioned Staghorn Property

Quadro Resources Ltd. (“Quadro” or the “Company”) (TSXV: QRO, OTC Pink: QDROD, FRA: G4O2) is pleased to announce high grade gold results from recent work completed by TRU Precious Metals Corp. (“TRU”) on TRU’s recently optioned Staghorn property in Central Newfoundland. This work was completed within the Staghorn option along the Mark’s Pond Shear zone and within the Rich House Mineral occurrence further to the Northeast.

This zone was first identified in 2018 by Quadro technical staff during the execution of a short trenching program. Follow up work including diamond drilling was then able to confirm the presence of a broad, extensive shear zone with multiple parallel high strain gold bearing structures which remains open to the North and along strike to the Northeast and the Southwest.
