MLK Gold. Ltd. Adds 104 Lithium Claims On Its 360 Lithium Property

Airborne geophysics, soil and till geochemistry, and drilling to be completed by end of Q4 2022

MLK Gold Ltd. (CSE: MLK) ("MLK" or "MLK Gold" or the " Company "), a growth-oriented gold exploration company headquartered in Windsor, Nova Scotia is pleased to report that after an initial data mining compilation of public government databases, the Company has added 104 lithium claims covering 2,600 hectares on its 360 Lithium Property located on the south coast of Newfoundland .

Company President and CEO, Paul Smith (P. Geo.) and Executive Chairman, Bill Fleming , noted significant pegmatite development on the property following an initial reconnaissance visit to the area late last month.

"We know from previous government and academic research that pegmatite veins have been noted in previous mapping of the area and contain sub-ore grades of elemental lithium in addition to numerous quartz-tourmaline veins," said Smith. "What we were surprised to observe was the abundance of veining and the variation in textures and mineralogy. Our plan is to complete a full assessment of these claims as part of our Q3 exploration program which includes our Caledonia Brook Gold Property," he added.

Exploration is set to begin at the end of July and will coincide with the Company's plan to release its airborne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Plus) geophysical survey and soil data collected by Geotech Ltd. and Overburden Drilling Management (ODM).

Update on Caledonia Brook Gold Project:

The Company's flagship Caledonia Brook Gold Project is targeting lode and intrusive-hosted styles of gold mineralization through a planned initial drill program of 1,200 metres in 12 proposed holes to be collared on the Mustang66, Maverick, and Charlie Zones.

"The commencement of our Q4 drilling will represent the first diamond drill holes ever undertaken on the property," added Smith. "We have two additional holes being considered on the Slider Zone which will be conditional on results of a detailed soil sample survey in this area."

Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Plus)

A total of 662 line-kilometres (representing ~62% of the property) has been covered by an airborne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Plus) geophysical survey. Survey highlights include:

  • Anomalous gold in soil, till, and rocks associated with low to medium sized magnetic highs.
  • Magnetic anomaly present in the Victoria Lake Group at the northern boundary with the overlying norther Caradoc Shale unit.
  • Magnetic anomaly present in the Tally Pond Volcanics near the south contact with the southern Caradoc Shale unit.
  • Magnetic signature of the northern and southern Caradoc Shale units are very different.
  • Survey better defines stratigraphy and structure.
  • Data shows the necessity for detailed geological mapping.

All data is currently under review and results will be released in the Company's next update.

Glacial Till Sampling

Phase I of the Company's glacial till sampling program in the northern portion of the property has been completed with 111 samples being processed by Overburden Drilling Management (ODM). A summary of the results from the samples include:

  • Ninety-one of the 111 samples collected showed visible gold grains.
  • The highest number of gold grains was 17 and the highest calculated gold grade assay in heavy mineral concentrate was 2.679 g/t Au.
  • Most gold grains were classified as modified with 21 samples having pristine gold grains.
  • A total of 87 samples carried modified gold grains.

All heavy mineral concentrates from ODM's mineral separation work are currently being analyzed at Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ancaster, ON , and results will be released once they have been received.

Additional glacial till sampling will be carried out over the southern part of the property in Q3-Q4.

Soil Sampling and Rock Geochemistry:

The Company's 2022 soil sampling process will take place over five separate grids on the property.  Gold assay grades in soil from last summer's exploration have shown elevated gold content up to 192 ppb.  Further work will target the Mustang66, Maverick, Cougar, Charlie, and Slider Zones.

Rock geochemistry has indicated four areas of elevated gold, silver, zinc, or lead content. These occur along the Mustang66, Viper, and Maverick Zones with gold assays up to 2.38 g/t Au and with silver up to 71.1 g/t Ag, 4.03 % Zn, and 1.07 % Pb.

All work will focus on areas where either known structural faults occur or where the Company has evidence of either shear zones or faulting being present based on its previous exploration in the area.

MLK Executive Chairman, William (Bill) Fleming , says the Company's commitment to the area's high potential is driving their exploration program.

"We have a pretty good idea of the geological similarities we share with other major stakeholders in the area, and we are encouraged by some of the results we have recorded to date," said Fleming.  "Keeping that in mind, our primary focus right now is to accelerate the implementation of our strategic exploration initiatives, and if that requires more investment capital then we'll execute that action."

MLK's Caledonia Brook property is situated in central Newfoundland west of New Found Gold Corporation, northeast of the Valentine Lake deposit property, and southwest of Sokoman Minerals Moosehead gold property, and shares geological and structural similarities to Marathon Gold's (4.14 million ounces; 3.14 Moz. M&I, 56.7 Mt @ 1.72 g/t Au; 1.00 Moz. Inferred; 18.2 Mt @ 1.70 g/t Au) Valentine Lake deposit with both properties lying along the Victoria Lake – Grand Falls Shear Zone System. The Company's qualified person has not verified data from Marathon Gold's Valentine Lake project and similarities are not indicative of mineralization on the Company's properties.
