HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Robinson's Salt Property comprises 2 mineral licenses, totalling 10 claim blocks.
  • Mineral claims encompass 250 hectares within the Codroy Group, likely to contain a continuous salt layer.
  • Historic drill hole RS-001 on the Property discovered high-grade salt of 86.9% NaCl of 250.5m in length from 217 to 467.5m at depth, which is considered shallow relative to the degree of thickness of the salt layer.
  • Contiguous and along strike to Atlas Salt's (TSX.V: SALT) massive high-grade Great Atlantic Salt Deposit, characterized by significant continuity and shallow deposit rock salt.
  • Located between Atlas Salt's additional advanced projects, St. Fintan's Salt Deposit and Fischell's Salt Dome that occur within the same evaporite sequence of Carboniferous sediments known to host the regions salt deposits. This is based on minor halite associated with gypsum-anhydrite deposits and the presence of brine seeps (see Figure 2).

ROBINSON'S SALT PROPERTY OVERVIEW

The Robinson's Salt Property is located in southwestern Newfoundland, 50km by road southwest of Stephenville and 3 km to the east of Robinson's Head on St. George's Bay adjacent to the town of Heatherton. The Property is proximal to the Trans Canada Highway, deep water ports at Turf Point and Port Harmon, and within 30 minutes of the Stephenville Airport.

Salt deposits in the Bay St. George basin have been long postulated. A 1954 gravity survey commissioned by the Newfoundland Geological Survey outlined numerous promising negative gravity anomalies. In 1973, Hooker Chemical Corporation drilled one hole (RS-001) in a central portion of a gravity low, discovering high grade salt at 86.9% NaCl for 250.5m from 217 to 467.5m., Over the length of the hole, NaCL assay values ranged from 24.12% up to 99.08% (see Figure 3).

Extensive potash exploration was undertaken in the Bay St. George's Basin throughout the 1980's. Expanding on previous gravity surveys, gravity structures were found to be small in extent, separated by a north-south trending fault. The most significant anomaly uncovered suggested salt at depths between 200 m - 300 m. Drilling to test an inland negative gravity anomaly at Fischell's Brook encountered a significant amount of carnallite mineralization while a second hole just north of RS-001 encountered salt at 203.4 m.

Within the Codroy Group, Atlas Salt is developing the Great Atlantic Salt Deposit (GASD, 25km northeast of the Property) as well as two other advanced projects, St. Fintan's and Fischell's Salt Dome (10 km northeast and 16 km southwest from the Property respectively). GASD has NI-43-101 compliant resources of 908 million tonnes grading 96.9% (Eccles et al., 2016). The salt layer in all three of these projects is interpreted to be continuous throughout the entire Codroy Group at variable thicknesses. The existence of salt springs in this area and the relatively shallow depths at which salt has been discovered make this an attractive prospect.

Maxwell Gold Property Geophysical Survey Commences and JMW Property Diamond Drilling to Begin, Chapais-Chibougamau Area, Quebec

Maxwell Gold Property Geophysical Survey Commences and JMW Property Diamond Drilling to Begin, Chapais-Chibougamau Area, Quebec

Newfoundland Discovery Corp. (CSE: NEWD) (OTC PINK: NEWDF) (FSE: M4K) ("Newfoundland Discovery" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a 1,000-line kilometre airborne Triaxial Gradient Magnetometer ("MAG") survey has commenced on the Maxwell gold property ("Maxwell") in the Chapais-Chibougamau area of Quebec (see location map below). The MAG survey will cover the entire 9,400-hectare property.

Maxwell is a project that the Company entered into an option agreement with Gitennes Exploration Inc. (TSXV: GIT) to acquire up to an 85% interest in on November 3rd, 2022. The project is situated between two of Iamgold Corporation's properties with the Monster Lake high grade gold property six km to the east (see Figure 1). Maxwell has several occurrences of gold in both the fine and heavy fraction of glacial tills and the gold in tills is associated with mapped structures. The structures are northeast trending, similar to Iamgold's Nelligan property. Maxwell has seen very little exploration and several EM geophysical anomalies remain untested.
