Fabled Silver Gold Corp. ("Fabled" or the "Company") (TSXV:FCO)(OTCQB:FBSGF)(FSE:7NQ) announces the results of surface diamond drilling from the upgraded 14,200-meter drill program on the "Santa Maria" Property in Parral, Mexico

Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President, remarks, "We are pleased to announce additional drill assay results for surface diamond drill holes SM20-34, SM20-35 and SM20-36, which continue to intercept the gold bearing mineralized diorite dike and related sheeted vein structures and breccias. See Figure 1 below.

Preamble

As previously mentioned, it is the belief that the northwest trending mineralized diorite dike being encountered in present drilling, or re-logged in past historical surface and underground drilling, is the direct cause of the hydrothermal gold domain system and increases with mineralization at depth to the west.

The emplacement of the dike caused breccias and sheeted veins to the sides, or the walls, over considerable widths. The sheeted veins may have been shatter veins replaced with quartz, carbonate, and mineralization. The previous first modeled diorite dike was over 440 meters and now has been extended to a minimum of 1,000 meters in strike length and 400 meters at depth, open in all directions. Modelling continues to be ongoing as new data is received.

Figure 1- Modeled Mineralized Diorite Dike.

Given these new assay results, and the sheeted gold domain system, we once again find ourselves refining the interpretation of structural controls as seen in Figure 2, which is an isopac contour of gold grade multiplied by thickness.

Figure 2 - Longitudinal View of Area of Current Drilling Being Reported

The last western fence of drill holes SM20-34, 35 and 36 are located 75 meters to the west of drill collars SM20-31, 32 and 33 (which were reported by news release dated September 30, 2021), and were designed to once again tighten up, or close off the interpretation of the boundaries of the new Santa Maria gold domain dike structure with respect the highly anomalous auriferous sheeted veins and breccias intersected to the east in the previous fences of holes.

The drill holes were targeted to intercept the dike related gold trend at vertical depths of -90, -170, and -250 meters, respectively on one section or in one plane. As one can see, these new results continue to validate the interpreted mineral / structural thesis that gold mineralization is plunging 45 degrees to the west. The gold domain remains open in all directions, especially at depth. See Figure 3, below.

Figure 3 - Cross Section for Drill Hole SM20-34,35,36

As previously mentioned in prior news releases, any vein sheet, micro or macro in size, grading greater than 0.50 g/t gold is highly anomalous and of potential economic interest. Of the 3 holes being reported in this release, SM20-34, 35 and 36 reported approximately 97% of sampled intervals above the gold detection limit. To continue to explain the significance of this hydrothermal gold domain system, the holes and sections below will report all values greater than 0.10 g/t Au cut-off to demonstrate the gold population in the sheeted veins, hydrothermal breccias and mineralized diorite. We apologize that each hole results will be plotted on a duplicate section as there are too many intercepts to plot on one section.

SM20 - 34

A gray to green in color, layered limestone containing 15% disseminated sulphides with occasional sheeted quartz veins with 1% sphalerite was intersected from the collar to approximately 87 meters. This was followed by 5 meters of reddish-pink oxidized hydrothermal breccia with oxidized pyrite, and then back to layered limestone. At 147.5 meters a 7.6 meter mineralized hydrothermal diorite dike, oxidized in parts, with quartz veinlets, followed by 15.1 meters of a gray porphyritic dike with veinlets of quartz with disseminated sulphides.

A total of 12 intercepts of 0.10 g/t gold or greater were intersected in the hole either in sheeted vein structures, stockwork veining, hydrothermal breccias, or in the diorite dike.

SM20-35

Surface diamond drill hole SM20-35 was drilled underneath hole SM20-34 at -55 degrees to target an intercept at -170 meters and was successful in the interception of the mineralized hydrothermal dike and related sheeted quartz veins, veinlets, and breccias.

A gray to green in color, layered limestone containing 15% disseminated sulphides with occasional sheeted quartz veins with 1% sphalerite was intersected from the collar to 101.9 meters, which contained numerous sheeted veins of which, four reported 0.12 g/t Au over 1.0 meters; 0.14 g/t Au over 2.0 meters; 0.10 g/t Au over 0.30 meters and finally 0.17 g/t Au over 0.80 meters.

This was followed by 18 meters of reddish-pink oxidized breccia hydrothermal breccia with oxidized pyrite, and then back to layered limestone. This unit reported four gold intercepts 0.95 meters grading 0.76 g/t Au; 1.10 meters grading 0.15 g/t Au; 0.40 meters grading 0.10 g/t Au and 0.10 g/t Au over 0.35 g.t Au. This zone correlated to hole SM20-34 above which returned 6.05 meters grading 0.18 g.t Au.

At 145.55 meters, a 0.20 meters breccia zone reported 57.27 g/t Ag Eq with base metal credits of 1.26% Pb and 2.86% Zn.

From 178.4 meters, a 18.8 meter mineralized hydrothermal diorite dike, partly oxidized in places with crustification textures as veins, sulphide content including sphalerite, galena and pyrite in the structures and disseminated within the dike unit was encountered. This interval reported 0.25 g/t Au over its entire 18.8-meter length with the upper contact being higher in grade which returned 1.11 g/t Au over 0.50 meters and the lower contact also higher in grading reporting 1.93 g/t Au over 1.65 meters.

This 18.8-meter interval grading 0.25 g/t gold correlated with hole 34 above which returned 11.45 meters grading 0.19 g/t gold.

A total of 14 intercepts of 0.10 g/t gold or greater were intersected in the hole either in sheeted vein structures, stockwork veining, hydrothermal breccias or in the diorite dike. See Table 2, Photos 2, 3 and Figure 5

SM20-36

Surface diamond drill hole SM20-36 was drilled underneath hole 35 and in the same plane at -70 degrees to target an intercept at -250 meters and was again successful.

A gray to green in color layered limestone containing 10-15% disseminated sulphides, with occasional sheeted quartz veins, and with minor sphalerite was intersected from the collar to 127.2 meters. This section contained numerous sheeted veins of which, one reported 0.10 g/t Au over 1.0 meters.

This was followed by 10.2 meters of limestone with breccia zones containing veinlets, stockwork veining, and sheeted veins of quartz and sericite with pyrite and sphalerite. This zone reported 0.30 meters grading 0.14 g/t Au and 0.17 g/t Au over 0.90 meters with minor base metal credits at the lower contact.

From 137.4 - 141.7 meters, the 4.3-meter intercept contained reddish quartz veining containing sphalerite with fluidal / crustiform textures. This distinct unit correlates well with holes 35 and 34 above. This was followed by layered limestone.

From 222.7 -246.7 meters the brecciated contact reported 0.60 meters grading 0.25 g/t Au with the main unit being a greenish - gray porphyritic dike, locally brecciated, possible from pulses of fluids or mineralization and pervasive sericite, chlorite and silicification alteration masking the original textures over 24 meters.

Within this unit a 0.90 meters breccia interval assayed 0.21 g/t gold with 82.30 g/t Ag Eq with base metal credits of 2.09% Pb and 1.91% Zn, which correlates with holes SM20-34 and 35 reported above. Additional intercepts included 1.1 meters of 0.17 g/t Au and 0.6 meters grading 0.18 g/t Au

A total of 8 intercepts of 0.10 g/t gold or greater were intersected in the hole either in sheeted vein structures, stockwork veining, hydrothermal breccias, or in the diorite dike. See Table 3, Photos 4, 5 and Figure 5 below.

FUTURE DRILLING UPDATE

The western fence of exploration drill holes SM20-34, 35 and 36 conclude the Phase 1 exploration drill program and as such holes SM20-37 onwards will be designed to define the previously discovered zones or trends. Figure 6 below outlines the next 13 target areas.

Drill hole collars, or locations for definition diamond drill holes SM20- 37, 38 and 39 are near the drill setup for the previously drilled exploration holes SM20 - 28, 29 and 30, and have been designed to make a deep cut at depth under or through hole SM20-30.

Exploration drill hole SM20-30 reported 22 intercepts greater than 0.10 g/t Au plus a base metal feeder which reported 1.57 g/t Au, 202.76 g/t Ag Eq plus base metal credits of 3.68% Pb, 14.30% Zn and 0.14% Cu. An example of 0.90 meters grading 2.6 g/t Au within 174.14 Ag Eq; 0.60 meters grading 1.79 g/t Au within 127.08 g/t Ag Eq; 0.30 meters grading 4.22 g/t Au within 268.28 g/t Ag Eq and 0.70 meters grading 1.28 g/t Au within 109.24 g/t Ag Eq.

Planned definition holes SM20-40, and 41 target the down plunge extension of previous drilled exploration holes SM20-20 and 22. Hole 20 intercepted 30.7 meters grading 2.5 g/t Au containing; 22.7 meters reporting 3.3 g/t Au, 5.61 g/t over 11.6 meters and 8.4 meters grading 7.24 g/t Au. The highest-grade intercept in the 30.7 meter gold mineralized zone was 10.85 g/t Au over 1.5 meters.

Exploration hole SM20-22 below and to the west of hole SM20-20 intercepted 14.4 meters grading 4.95 g/t Au containing; 9.5 meters of 7.17 g/t Au, 1 meter grading 14.05 g/t Au, 1.8 meters reported 22.60 g/t Au and 1.5 meters graded 7.11 g/t Au.

The other planned sites for definition diamond drill holes SM20-42 to 49 plus other holes are being planned, subject to assays results and structural / dike interpretation and may be altered.

K9 Gold Confidently Awaits Analytical Results from Drilling Program on Property in Newfoundland's Gold Mining Hotbed

K9 Gold Confidently Awaits Analytical Results from Drilling Program on Property in Newfoundland's Gold Mining Hotbed

K9 Gold Corp. (OTC Pink: WDFCF) (TSXV: KNC) (FSE: 5GP) continues to learn a great deal from its inaugural drilling season on the company's vast Stony Lake Project, which is nestled comfortably within the suddenly popular Exploits Subzone Gold Belt in Central Newfoundland. But it's what the company hasn't learned yet that could be the most exciting piece of the early puzzle K9 Gold is developing from its recently ended 2021 drilling program.  It's often said that the waiting is the hardest part, so, what K9 Gold is expecting could prove to be well worth the wait.  The problem is that testing laboratories throughout Canada are overwhelmed with work from mining companies, both big and small, awaiting analytical results, and much of that work is coming from companies mining in the Exploits Subzone Gold Belt.

Waiting patiently in line for analytical data are K9 Gold's executives who, like their shareholders, are beaming with excitement for those results to be received by the company.  Data could confirm what the discovery of several necessary key factors during drilling are suggesting—and that is the potential for higher grade zones of gold mineralization.  These results are crucial to the company's next steps and will allow K9 Gold's team to further plan its drilling operations which are expected to commence after the Christmas break.

Further to its news release of November 25, 2021, the Company is pleased to announce that since the drilling crew arrived on site, they have been drilling from talc outcroppings using a backpack drill. The experience of the drilling crew from Paradigm Drilling Ltd., combined with the soft nature of the talc mineralization has allowed the crew to drill several holes to depths of 20 meters.

The area being targeted with the drilling program is host to talc and nickel mineralization (see the Sovereign nickel showing, Minfile 093A 130). The area covered by these mineral rights was subject to an exploration program targeting the potential for a commercial talc deposit during the 1980's. The exploration resulted in the preparation of a preliminary talc mining plan in 1986.[1]

The drilling completed on the talc showing in the 1980's consisted of relatively shallow holes. Green River's goal for this preliminary part of the program is to confirm the results of the drilling from the 1980's and to expand the footprint of the talc occurrence discovered at that time. Drilling short holes will determine the grade and quality of the talc exposures, which outcrops at multiple locations in the project area. The Company will also drill deeper holes to determine the vertical extent of the talc mineralization. Depending on the results of the initial drilling, the Company expects to undertake additional drilling throughout the winter to further determine the extent of the talc mineralization.

One of the first holes that Green River drilled during this program appears to have intersected one of the drill holes from the 1980's. The Company was initially uncertain of the exact coordinates of the 1980's drill program. The accidental intersection of one of the original drill holes was an extremely unlikely occurrence, but it has given the Company great confidence that Green River is drilling from the exact location that was drilled in the 1980's. Drill results to this point mirror the reported results from the 1980's drilling.

Drilling with the backpack drill is continuing. To date, the core from the first five holes, totaling approximately 72 meters, has been transported to Quesnel and is in the process of being logged. From there it will be sent to the lab for assay. The following description of Drill hole D021-03 from Steve Kocsis, Qualified Person for the project, is indicative of what the early drilling results are showing.

"Drill hole DO21-03 was drilled at a 330° azimuth and -70° dip to a total depth of 16.76 m. From 0 to 13.4 m talc occurs in layers up to 12 cm thick and as brecciated fragments up to 2 cm wide. Talc makes up around 15% of the rock in this depth interval. From 13.4 to 15.85 talc occurs in layers up to 1.0 m thick and makes up around 80% of the rock in this depth interval. The rock was soft and washed away at depth interval 15.85 to 16.76 m and there was 0% core recovered. The soft rock was more than likely a high percentage of talc."

As successful as this drilling method has been, it is limited in its capabilities of recovering some friable formations. To date, our contractor has exceeded our expectations for core recovery considering the drilling method and ground conditions present.

Follow-up drilling with a larger drill rig is expected to begin in January. The Company will be able to explore potential talc mineralization to depths exceeding 100 meters versus the shallow exploration completed in the past and with the current round of drilling. The talc showing outcrops at several locations on the Company's claims, making drilling a relatively simple process and allowing for drilling throughout the winter.

The Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project is adjacent to the Company's Fontaine Gold Project. The two projects border Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold Project, which contains 5 million ounces of gold and is expected to go into production late in 2023.

Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project Highlights:

There are 3 BC MINFILE occurrences as follows:

  • -  093A 013 - Sovereign Creek - developed prospect containing talc and magnesite, and a co-incident nickel sulfide showing.
  • -  093A 130 - Sovereign - showings containing talc and nickel sulfides.
  • -  093H 061 - R.T. - showing containing nickel, chromium, and cobalt.

Talc is a soft mineral used in a variety of industries. Talc is used in the production of plastics, ceramics, paint, paper, roofing, rubber, and for other industrial uses. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) indicates that total sales of talc by U.S. Producers in 2020 was about 430,000 tons valued at about US $100 million. The USGS estimates total mine production worldwide in 2020 was 5,800,000 tons with about 220,000 tons produced in Canada. To the best of the Company's knowledge, there are no talc mines in Western Canada.

In addition to acquiring more knowledge of the talc occurrences on the Property, the Company intends to drill using the larger rig to gain more knowledge of the potential for nickel and cobalt in the same general area as the talc. The Company will be concentrating on known and potential new nickel and cobalt targets with the plan to continue drilling with larger RC/DD rigs in 2022.

The recently completed UAV-MAG survey results over the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project area indicates the presence of highly magnetic rocks co-incident with the interpreted surface exposure and down-dip projection of a favorable ultramafic rock assemblage. This is similar to the aeromagnetic response in the area of nickel-alloy mineralization found throughout the BC Decar District.

Kyle Townsend, Mine Manager for Green River Gold Corp. says; "The success of our modified backpack drilling technique is very encouraging. We have demonstrated our ability to obtain quality down hole data in a very cost effective manner while keeping our surface disturbance to almost nonexistent. As we move from the trial phase to the drilling phase, we are working to delineate the talc mineralization with enough data to confirm a mineral resource."

Perry Little, Green River Gold's President and CEO stated, "We are excited to see the early results from this drilling program appear to be very similar to the limited, but impressive, results from the 1980's that inspired the claim owners at the time to proceed to a feasibility study and preliminary mine plan. In addition to finding out more about the potential for a commercial talc deposit, the focus will be on nickel and cobalt. Preliminary metallurgical work completed in 1971 has suggested the presence of nickel sulfide or nickel alloy minerals. One focus in the initial phase of exploration is to prioritize the multiple Nickel/Cobalt targets within the project area for a follow-up RC/DD drill program and to expand the areas of mineralization in 2022."

Regional Exploration Plan:

Additionally, there will be some upcoming exploration plans for the Fontaine Lode Gold Project, which is contiguous to the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project and also contiguous to Osisko Development Corp.'s Cariboo Gold Project. Green River is also awaiting assay results from the recent grab sampling program completed at the Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project.
