SKRR Exploration Inc. (TSXV: SKRR) (FRE: B04Q ) (" SKRR " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce it has entered into a non-arm's length acquisition agreement dated November 4, 2021 (the " Acquisition Agreement ") to acquire a 100% interest in Edge Geological Consulting Inc.'s (" Edge ") Watts Lake zinc property (the " Property ") consisting of twenty-four (24) mineral claims compromising a total of 13,708.109 hectares.

The Property covers multiple, parallel basement conductive corridors, including the ~14km long Borys Lake Corridor, which hosts the historic Borys Lake lead-zinc deposit as well as numerous other mineralized occurrences. Watts Lake is located approximately 65 km north north-east of the town of La Ronge, Saskatchewan and 20km northwest of the community of Missinipe, SK . The well-maintained gravel Provincial Highway 102 runs north from La Ronge , through Missinipe to Reindeer Lake and its closest point is approximately 12.5km east of the property.

Sherman Dahl , CEO of SKRR states:

"Why Zinc?  Like copper, zinc has a range of applications across many industries, including agriculture, construction, pharmaceuticals, and transportation. Approximately half of the world's supply is used in corrosion-proof galvanized steel, which is widely used in infrastructure projects. Zinc sheeting is used for cladding, roofing, and gutter systems. Zinc-coated steel is widely used for building framing and bridge construction, and in reinforcing bar in concrete structures. Because of its anti-corrosive properties, zinc can make a crucial contribution to infrastructure projects – and in recent years, there has been a steady demand for galvanized steel from China . In addition, with the chemistries that zinc brings into play … this is a perfect fit for zinc batteries and one that we see significant growth in going forward. The electric vehicle demand is fueling demand for all metals including Zinc and Nickel. Watts Lake fits in with our Father Lake Nickel project and our well-advanced gold properties in the Trans Hudson Corridor - the home of giants SSR mining and Hudbay Minerals.

SKRR is on a mission to build a world class base metal and precious metal company based on the outstanding mineralization in Saskatchewan . SKRR will be a leader with a diversified portfolio of high-quality long-life assets.  The SKRR team has done an incredible job over the last few years of drilling, exploring, discovering, and positioning the company for success. "

Terms of the Acquisition Agreements

Under the terms of the Acquisition Agreement, SKRR will acquire a 100% interest in the Property by making an initial cash payment of CAD$62,500 and issuing 50,000 common shares of SKRR to Edge upon TSX Venture Exchange (the " TSXV ") approval of the Acquisition Agreement. The Acquisition Agreement provides for a 2% net smelter return royalty in favour of Edge (subject to a buy down to 1% for CAD$1,000,000 ).  SKRR will also make an additional cash payment of $62,500 to Edge within 12-months of TSXV approval of the Acquisition Agreement.

The Acquisition Agreement is subject to acceptance by the TSXV. All securities issued pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement are subject to a four month hold period from the closing date in accordance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSXV.

The acquisition agreement with Edge is not an "Arm's Length Transaction" as such term is defined in the Exchange's Policy 1.1 and therefore constituted a "related party transaction" as such term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions . Ross McElroy is a director of SKRR and is also a director of Edge. In respect of the requirements of MI 61-101 and Exchange Policy 5.9, the Company will rely on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval required under MI 61-101. The Company is exempt from the formal valuation requirement of MI 61-101 in reliance on section 5.5(b) as no securities of the Company are listed on the specified markets outlined therein. Additionally, the Company is exempt from minority shareholder approval of MI 61-101 in reliance on section 5.7(1)(a) (fair market value not more than 25% of the Company's market capitalization).

Watts Lake Property Highlights

  • World-Class Jurisdiction : Saskatchewan is consistently ranked globally as a top mining investment jurisdiction
  • Large Land Package in a Favorable Geological Setting: Watts Lake is a large contiguous land package consisting of 13,708 ha in the established, deposit endowed La Ronge Domain, of Saskatchewan . The project is strategically located near important infrastructure, including within 20km of major provincial highway network.
  • Historic Borys Lake Lead-Zinc Zones: The Borys Lake Corridor is anchored by the shallow depth historic Borys Lake lead-zinc deposit, including all four known drill hole delineated zones; Mac, Main, Will A/Will B and Sam zones. The main zone was interpreted to have an approximate strike length of 975 m and widths varying from 5.3 to 19.5 m with the zinc to lead ratio being approximately 10:1). Mineralization is open along strike and at depth.
  • Strong Blue-Sky Potential: Watts Lake Project area covers multiple, parallel basement conductive corridors, identified by a 2008 airborne versatile time-domain electromagnetic (VTEM) geophysical survey, including the entire approximately 14km-long Borys Lake conductive corridor, as well as significant portions of parallel corridors. The conductive corridors have numerous drill intersected and surface identified mineralized occurrences of zinc, copper, and silver as well as anomalous gold, nickel and cobalt.

Geologic Particulars of the Property
The Watts Lake property has been explored sporadically since the mid 50's by several exploration companies. The Borys Lake deposit occurs within northeast trending, steep northwesterly dipping supracrustal rocks at the eastern margin of the Crew Lake Belt of the La Ronge Domain. These rocks comprise mainly biotitic gneisses that are variably migmatized. The deposit lies on the northwestern limb of a major antiform within an approximately conformable, northeast trending biotite-chlorite shear zone. Structurally controlled mineralization on the property consists of a suite of sulphide minerals including pyrrhotite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, pyrite, and galena. Gold and silver are also present. The sulphides occur as fine dissemination, isolated blebs, and rare veinlets. Locally, massive sphalerite-galena mineralization occurs within quartz-rich veins and lenses, which may represent silicification.

The Borys Lake Main zone was the focus for Husky Oil Operations Ltd. in 1972.  Husky was sufficiently encouraged with results that they prepared an internal report for the initial tonnage and grade estimate of the Main zone of the Borys Lake deposit "Preliminary Calculation of Grade and Tonnage Borys Lake – Lead-Zinc Prospect for Husky Oil Operations Ltd.".  Husky's estimates are based on limited drill information and only provide an inventory of the metal distribution within that portion of the zone tested by 10 holes and to a vertical depth of 30m below surface. The Main zone was interpreted to have an approximate strike length of 975 m and widths varying from 5.3 to 19.5 m . In a report titled. The deposit calculations are considered to be relevant but are historical. The report does not make reference to the estimate being an inferred mineral resource, indicated mineral resource nor measured mineral resource nor does it make reference to being a probable mineral reserve or proven mineral reserve as per NI 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.  This estimate is believed to be the most current available.  A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources or current mineral reserves and SKRR is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources or current mineral reserves.  SKRR has not verified the calculations or the assay results supporting them, nor has Ironside done the drilling and sampling necessary to verify the classification of the resource or reserve. The Watts Lake package includes all four mineralized zones of the Borys Lake deposit: Main, Mac, Cam and Will A/B zones.  Although not part of the grade and tonnage estimate, other significant minerals are noted in the historic literature filed on this property, including anomalous silver and gold.

The above results were summarized from the SMDI descriptions and assessment reports filed with the Saskatchewan government. SKRR cautions that historical results were collected and reported by past operators and have not been verified nor confirmed by a Qualified Person. Further work (including drilling) is required by SKRR in order to verify the historical work on the Property. Management cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Property.

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.

Green River Gold Corp. Provides Exploration Drilling Update at Its Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

Green River Gold Corp. Provides Exploration Drilling Update at Its Quesnel Nickel/Cobalt/Talc Project in British Columbia

 Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to provide an update on its Initial Phased Exploration Drill Program at the wholly owned Quesnel NickelCobaltTalc Project in British Columbia, Canada.

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.
