White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FSE: CGK1) (OTC Pink: TNMLF) ("White Metal" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of the remaining seven (7) diamond drill holes from the Phase 2 drilling program at its flagship Tower Stock Gold Project (the "Project" or "Property"). The drilling program was very successful in delineating several new gold zones that the Company will be following-up on in the coming weeks with a Phase 3 drilling program. The Company is also in the process of completing a trenching and sampling program on the H Zone, the K Zone, Papa Zone, and the A Zone. Sampling and mapping of these zones will be completed shortly with all samples being submitted to Activation Labs in Thunder Bay. The Phase 2 drilling program totalled 3,760 m in 18 drill holes (TM-21-98 to 116) with 11 drill holes reported to date.

Highlights

  • TM-21-109 returned 24.0 m grading 1.0 g/t Au (from 116.5 m), successfully extending the A Zone 100 m to the northwest of TM-21-108.

  • TM-21-110 intersected a new gold zone (the "110 Zone") that returned 52.0 m grading 0.75 g/t Au (from surface), including 7.5 m grading 1.02 g/t Au (from 47.0 m), and remains open at depth.

  • TM-21-112 returned two zones of gold mineralization: 25.5 m grading 0.68 g/t Au (from 56.0 m) and 24.0 m grading 0.62 g/t Au (from 120.5 m).

  • TM-21-113 returned 57.0 m grading 0.54 g/t Au (from 164.0 m) with two higher-grade intervals of 6.0 m grading 1.31 g/t Au (from 164.0 m), including 16.5 m grading 1.01 g/t Au (from 204.5 m).

  • TM-21-112 and 113 confirmed gold mineralization at the Ellen Zone which remains open at depth.

  • TM-21-116, which intersected a new gold zone, was drilled 100 m south of the 04/36 Zone. This hole returned two mineralized intervals: 5.2 m grading 0.93 g/t Au (from 16.3 m) and 76.5 m grading 0.3 g/t Au (from 93.5 m), including 9.0 m grading 0.65 g/t Au (from 137.0 m).

Michael Stares, President and CEO of White Metal, commented, "The Company has been working on the Tower Stock Gold Project for just over one year and has clearly demonstrated the extensive gold system that is present on the Property. We have completed over 7,000 m of drilling, made several new discoveries, and have expanded known zones of gold mineralization. Prospecting and mapping have also proven quite successful with the discovery of the Star Zone, the C & M Zone and the Papa Zone. I am excited to start the Phase 3 drilling program as we are now beginning to understand the structure and controls on gold mineralization. We still have a lot of work to do but we are moving in the right direction in advancing the Project."

PHASE 2 DIAMOND DRILLING

The Phase 2 diamond drilling program was completed in mid-September. A summary of the latest results is provided in Table 1. A summary of previously announced results is provided in Table 2.

Bench Zone

TM-21-105,106,107: three holes designed to test the down-dip extension of the central portion of the Bench Zone over a strike length of 150 m (Figure 1). Successful in extending the Bench Zone 40 m to 50 m to the southwest with TM-21-105 and TM-21-106 returning significant widths of gold mineralization between 150 m and 169.5 m, including a number of zones with >1.0 g/t Au. This includes a separate zone of mineralization intersected by TM-21-106 about 150 m below surface, that returned 58.5 m grading 1.01 g/t Au and open at depth.

A Zone

TM-21-108: designed to test for the east extension of the main A Zone horizon (Figure 1). Successful in intersecting the A Zone, returning 23.8 m grading 3.94 g/t Au (from surface 3.7 m), including 7.5 m grading 8.77 g/t Au (from 8.0 m). Although the A Zone was previously worked by Inco Limited and Noranda Exploration Inc., only sparse work and data was reported.

110 Zone

TM-21-110: designed to test a high-priority DasVision 3D-IP chargeability anomaly, approximately 250 m southeast of the southern extent of the Bench Zone (Figure 1), resulted in the discovery of a new gold zone. The entire length of the hole (143.0 m) returned anomalous gold (average 0.44 g/t Au) with the main part of the zone returning 52.0 m grading 0.75 g/t Au (from 2.5 m), including 7.5 m grading 1.02 g/t Au (from 47.0 m). It should be noted that the style of mineralization in the 110 Zone is unlike any mineralization found on the Property to-date in that it is wholly-hosted within an intrusive monzonite body with less than 1% pyrite and trace chalcopyrite in quartz-carbonate fractures.

PROSPECTING AND MAPPING

C & M Zone

Located 720 m east of the 110 Zone discovery area, two surface samples from this newly-discovered zone, returned 2.33 g/t and 5.27 g/t Au (Figure 2). This zone is hosted within fractured monzonite with less than 1% pyrite and trace chalcopyrite. Its similarity with the 110 Zone suggests a significant l target region, interpreted to be up to 800 m across. The area has very poor exposure with about 95% overburden.

Star Zone

Located 600 m to the west of the 4-36 Zone, in a previously unmapped area, this newly-discovered zone hosts widespread gold mineralization with anomalous gold concentrations ranging from 86 ppb to 2.8 g/t Au over a minimum strike length of 400 m and up to 100 m wide (Figure 2). Mineralization is hosted within an extensive zone of felsic pyroclastic volcanic rocks exhibiting extensive and pervasive hydrothermal alteration plus well-developed fracturing and deformation. This area of widespread anomalous gold mineralization shares similarities with the 04-36 Zone and if connected presents an exploration target with as much as 600 m of strike length.

Papa Zone

Located about 700 m northeast of the eastern edge of the Bench Zone, two rock grab samples, taken over a 10-square-metre area, assayed 3.05 g/t and 2.94 g/t Au (Figure 2). This zone is hosted within fractured monzonite with 1%-3% pyrite and located in an area largely covered by overburden. The Company is currently trenching this area to get a better understanding of the extent and controls on gold mineralization.

The Phase 3 drilling program will focus on:

  • A Zone: extending mineralization hosted within an extensive hydrothermal breccia system within a broad package of metavolcanic rocks.
  • 110 Zone: discovered while testing a DasVision 3D-IP Anomaly with gold zone mineralization associated with a broad fracture system within a monzonite.
  • Bench Zone: follow-up on mineralization that remains open at depth to the west, associated with extensive chlorite-calcic alteration.
  • Ellen Zone: target IP resistivity anomaly roughly 100 m southwest from current location of drilling.

Trench mapping and sampling will help to guide drill holes that are planned to test:

  • Star Zone: a new prospecting discovery hosted within coarse volcaniclastics with a minimum 600 m strike length.
  • H Zone: test the geometry of surface high-grade gold samples at depth.
  • C & M Zone: similar host rock and mineralization to the 110 Zone.
  • Further test DasVision 3D-IP targets.

Altiplano Begins Advance to the 352 m Level at Farellon and Completes Ventilation Upgrades

Altiplano Metals Inc. (TSXV: APN) (WKN: A2JNFG) ("Altiplano" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on the underground mining activity at the Farellon Copper-Gold (Cu-Au) mine located near La Serena, Chile.

Underground work has begun on the Hugo Decline to expand to the next targeted working heading at the 352 m level. The extension will require 60 m to reach the operational level and a further 15 m to reach the iron oxide copper gold vein system. To date, 14 metres have been completed. The decline extension is designed to provide two additional mining access points along the NE and SW drifts and, in the future, provide access to remove the mineralization from the roofs and floors of the 360 m level above (Figure 1). This work is part of the ongoing underground development and sustainability initiatives at Farellon.
