Schefferville Gold Project Highlights:

  • Project wide, approximately 53 gold occurrences grading from 1 g/t Au up to 171.5 g/t Au in mineralized iron formations have been documented historically (Figure 1). Only three of these 53 mineralized prospect areas have been historically drill-tested. And a total of 27 short diamond drill holes have been completed on these prospects yielded results including 2.23 g/t Au over 19.55 m, 10.21 g/t over 2.03 m and 1.05 g/t Au over 12.55 m.
  • A Phase 1 exploration program was completed by Prospector in July 2022 from a newly built exploration camp. The exploration program was comprised of a detailed high-resolution helicopter aeromagnetic survey ("airborne geophysic survey") over the central portion of the Sable claim block followed by mapping, stripping and channel sampling at its Arsene, Baleine Rouge, and Wolf target zones, as well as prospecting and ground truthing of additional high-priority targets. Assays from Prospector's Phase 1 remain pending and together with the new airborne magnetic data will help delineate drill targets for Phase 2.
  • Priority targets identified in the Phase 1 exploration program are to be drilled (up to 3,500m) during the Phase 2 program in the fall of 2022, with NEWD committing a minimum of $1.3M to this program.
  • Prospector will be the operator and undertake all exploration and development programs on the Schefferville Gold Project and are entitled to a 5% management fee on all expenditures incurred on the property.

Jeremy Prinsen, President & CEO of Newfoundland Discovery, states: "We are excited to enter this earn-in agreement for the Schefferville Project in Quebec. Prospector's Management and Technical Team is led by a strong and accomplished leadership team which have done an excellent job in moving this district-scale project forward into being drill ready. We are fortunate to have shared synergies between the companies and are looking forward to working together in moving this project forward."

Schefferville Gold Project Overview

The Schefferville Gold Project is centered on a structural corridor characterized by faulted and sheared iron formation stratigraphy extending for approximately 60 km on the Sable Block, and 10 km on the Hamard Block. The project was acquired through staking (see Company's news release dated August 20, 2020) and three subsequent acquisition transactions (see news releases dated September 4, 2020; and October 15, 2020; and this release).

The Sable and Hamard claims cover extensive areas of the Lilois Complex, a 2.7 billion-year-old rock unit characterized by the presence of numerous iron formations, many of which locally host gold mineralization. Sable and Hamard occur within a 20 km wide (east-west) by 70 km long (north-south) corridor along the Quebec - Labrador border. In 1985, a Quebec Ministry field team discovered the Lac du Canoe gold occurrence with sample results up to 18.9 g/t Au. Between 1986 and 1997, follow up work by the Quebec Ministry and several companies resulted in the discovery of approximately 40 gold occurrences grading from 1 g/t Au to up to 40 g/t Au in mineralized iron formations with 3-20% pyrrhotite and up to 10% arsenopyrite. Subsequent drilling yielded intervals including 18.1 g/t Au over 0.7m, 5.83 g/t Au over 3.1m, and 1.05 g/t over 12.55m (Quebec Assessment Reports GM45903 & GM66613).

Phase 2 Exploration Program

Phase 2 is anticipated to start in September 2022 and comprises approximately 3,500m of diamond drilling that will be testing multiple high-priority targets delineated in the Phase 1 exploration program. Operations will be based out of the new exploration camp.

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.
