Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: RPX) ("Red Pine" or the "Company") is pleased to report a significant gold intersection from its 2021 drilling program in the Surluga South discovery area of its Wawa project in Ontario.

The Surluga South discovery is now extending up to 500 metres down-dip from the boundary of the current mineral resource of the Surluga Deposit. The mineralized gold intersection in SD-21-302 is located at a vertical depth of 590 meters, approximately 30 metres up-dip from 25.73 g/t Au over 4.78 metres (estimated true width) intersected in hole SD-21-298A (announced on September 20, 2021).

Highlights of the 2021 Drilling Program ( Tables 1 and 2, Figures 1 and 2 )

  • 3.08 g/t Au over 55.66 metres estimated true width (TW) in the Jubilee Shear Zone includes three higher grade intervals of:
    • 27.21 g/t Au over 3.81 metres (TW), including 95.36 g/t over 0.92 metre (TW).
    • 4.31 g/t Au over 10.10 metres (TW), including 26.64 g/t over 0.93 metre (TW) and 7.78 g/t over 0.93 metre (TW).
    • 5.98 g/t Au over 2.30 metres (TW) including 13.54 g/t over 0.75 metre.
  • Visible gold observed in several holes (assays pending) completed in the Surluga South discovery, Surluga North extension and the Sadowski vein.

"The on-going drilling in our Surluga South discovery within the Jubilee Shear Zone continues to produce impressive results. The mineralized intersection in SD-21-302 indicates that thick zones of gold mineralization exist in our Surluga South discovery, and that these zones can reach an overall grade and thickness comparable to those forming the core of the current mineral resource of the Surluga Deposit." – Quentin Yarie, President and CEO.

Current Drilling Program

As part of its on-going 2021 drilling program, Red Pine is testing the northern and southern extensions of the Surluga Deposit, and the extension of the Minto Mine Deposit beyond the footprints of their respective mineral resources. One rig is drilling at the northern end of the Surluga Deposit and the second rig is drilling at the southern end of the Surluga Deposit, testing the Minto Mine Shear Zone and the newly identified Sadowski Gold Zone. Drill production is also continuing to improve on the project and the third drill, which will initially be positioned in the Darwin-Grace-Nyman greenfield target, is scheduled to start next week.

At the southern end of the Surluga Deposit, holes SD-21-296A, 297A, 298A (respectively announced on August 12, 2021 and September 20, 2021), 302 and 305A (assays pending) have successfully intersected the Jubilee Shear Zone, up to 500 metres away from the boundary of the Surluga Deposit mineral resource. Visible gold has been observed in hole SD-21-305A (assays pending) in one quartz vein in the Jubilee Shear Zone.

Significant mineralization was intersected in hole SD-21-298A in the Minto Vein, down-dip of the Minto Mine deposit (announced on September 2, 2021). Drilling is expected to start shortly to define the size and extent of this new zone of gold mineralization.

In the Sadowski zone, visible gold was observed in a quartz vein in hole SD-21-305A (assays are pending), approximately 65 metres along strike of the Sadowski vein intersections in SD-21-296A, 297A and 298A (announced on July 19, 2021, September 2, 2021 and September 20, 2021).

At the northern end of the Surluga Deposit, the on-going drilling program indicated that the Jubilee Shear Zone extends down-dip of the current limit of the inferred resource. This is supported by the results from holes SD-21-299 and SD-21-301 (announced on September 20, 2021) that confirm the extension of gold mineralization in the Jubilee Shear Zone beyond the current inferred resource of the Surluga deposit. The Jubilee Shear Zone was also successfully intersected in holes SD-21-304, 306 and 308 (assay pending for these holes), with visible gold observed in hole SD-21-308 in two quartz veins, SD-21-303 intersected with 2.27 g/t Au over 2.73m. Assays are pending for the balance of hole SD-21-303.

On-site Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QA/QC") Measures

Drill core samples are transported in security sealed bags for analyses at Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario. Individual samples are labelled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples are then placed into durable rice bags and then shipped. The residual coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage if further work or verification is needed.

Red Pine has implemented a quality-control program to comply with best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. As part of its QA/QC program, Red Pine inserts external gold standards (low to high grade) and blanks every 20 samples in addition to random standards, blanks, and duplicates.

Top Stories This Week — Experts Talk Market Volatility, Fed's Next Move, Gold Price at VRIC


We're taking a break from our usual format this week so I can give you a recap of the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), which ran from May 17 to 18.

This is the first time VRIC has been live since January 2020, and it was my first in-person event since all the way back in March 2020 — it was definitely exciting to be back on the show floor having face-to-face conversations, and I'm excited to share our interviews with you over the next couple of weeks.

For now, let's talk about VRIC themes. Although it was clear attendees were glad to be off Zoom and back in the real world, there was a sense of sobriety given the current state of the broader markets.
